Umm, you do realise that those are not designs of the MP figure right? Those are the character models from the Victory series bible and are clearly dated by the stamp on the bottom. All of the models shown during the Fans Choice poll were pre-existing artwork from the each lines series bibles and not new designs.

But one could argue that the Masterpiece figure would be based on that design, given a few liberties, like with the current Masterpieces. My main concerns would have to be the knee and waist joints of the Star Saber form.

I corrected my error. Sorry ... I should have caught that. I'm just not used to seeing such a large version of that artwork. I think that was actually his design from those Manga comics.

Nice to see quite a number of people acting all butthurt here.


But in all seriousness,I'm glad that the Japanese continuity is finally getting some love and having Star Saber as a prime candidate for the MP treatment is beyond awesome in my mind.

I'm just curious if there will be a Victory Leo release sometime in the future thanks to this.

Not surprised one bit. Will be a cool toy. I have no connection to the character, but super cool that it's getting done.

If you're angry about this toy getting made ( :lol: , why?), may I point to the title of this thread. Three key words: Takara Fan Poll. They polled Japanese fans. Not you. Not me. Get over it.

Ta, still don't remember seeing him. Must have been episodes after Primes death, which I didn't like so much.

In case it wasn't obvious enough from the Japanese music, he's wasn't in the G1 cartoon. He's the Autobot Supreme Commander from Transformers: Victory. :roll:

He never appeared in the US run, instead he appeared in the Japan-only Victory series in 1989. Remember, Japan continued while the US stopped.

Having seen that, if the toy could do the things that the cartoon could do it would make a pretty decent figure. Something we haven't had before.

Also, if that's what the shoulders are going to look like they won't have much range of motion.

They could give him extending shoulder joints much like MP-01, no T-pose but still at least a solid 70-ish degree spreading his arms outwards. All he needs to be able to do is reach his back to activate the Saber Blade and maybe hold his sword with both hands.


I think he'll be a treat for any TF fans, G1-purists or not. Seriously, we're talking about a badass Autobot Commander who brings a sword to a blaster-rifle fight, spaghetti western cowboy style. :x

I'll repeat my enthusiasm for this - Star Saber's a neat character, and it will be nice to have another larger MP Autobot to accompany Prime (besides Ultra Magnus, that is).

That said, I hope we see more Decepticons... Megatron, Shockwave, and Reflector should be priorities.
