This is my 4th (yes...4TH!) attempt at building Victory Leo using LEGO.
Victory Leo hold a soft spot in my heart. He is a character from Japanese Transformers: Victory cartoon series back in the early 90's. He turned into a mechanical lion and also a space jet. He was the reincarnation of God Ginrai from the Previous Masterforce series... the Japanese equivalent of Powermaster Optimus Prime (my favorite toy as well).
I built my first LEGO Victory Leo at the same year the show was aired too! To find out more about my past Victory Leo (and Star Saber) creations, click on the link below:

ABOUT THIS CREATION
This creation is part of my project Victory 2022 , where I decided to build Victory Saber after discovering last year that Hasbro Lab was producing their own version of the same character too.
Victory Saber (above) is the merging between Victory Leo and Star Saber, the main good guys in TF: Victory Series.
In this part 1, I will feature the jet mode and how it transforms into the lion mode. Are you ready?
