Once again coming at us from Hisashi Yuki on Twitter, we get some comparison shots of the third part of the prototype for Masterpiece Star Saber - and it's Yuuki no Brain, Brainmaster of Courage! Check out the images showing the tiny figure alongside its predecessors and some other size comparisons.

Good gravy! That brain is microscopic! The size of a Diaclone driver! This is like Smallest Transformers levels of tininess! :shock:

TFYuki is Hisashi Yuki, not Hideashi Yuki.

Also, when did MP Star Saber get the designation of MP-25? We still don't know what designation he'll get as far as I've heard. Ultra Magnus is MP-22. Granted we don't know if Star Saber will be MP-23 or something higher yet, but last I heard he wasn't stated to have a number yet.

Why? Why remind me how much I wish I had diaclone drivers! These images are cruel :sad:

It really is interesting to see how everything is sizing up! I want this sucker badly :KREMZEEK:

I was wondering where MP-25 came from as well... For all we know, it could have its own numbering system like the movie 'MP' figures. But if site staff know something we don't, then who the hell is MP-23 & 24? Spill it!

I'm getting a bad feeling that MP-23 is the brainmaster unit, MP-24 is Saber, with MP-25 being Starsaber.

Anyway, I think we'll be seeing a Victory Leo and possibly a Dai Atlas in the distant future.

They wouldn't give separate components of a single Masterpiece release individual ID numbers. When Rumble and Jaguar were packaged together, they were both given a single ID number of MP-15. Likewise for Frenzy and Buzzsaw together as a 2-pack being MP-16.

As far as can be told, the "MP-25" thing is incorrect (no offense intended towards the news crew).

it really is sad that with a flagship masterpiece figure, the brain master has the pose ability of an 80's action master toy. and weve seen some small transformers with mad articulation...

It's not like the brain is even supposed to do anything anyway. It's not even a person; just the core component of Star Saber that goes into his chest.

The figure is teeny tiny. Any joints beyond what it has is likely to make it extremely fragile.

You're talking about something that is half as tall and half as wide as the Armada minicon Ramjet figure. This is a fgurine that would be the right size to fit onto a HotWheels car, or an HO scale model train. Which is 1/87th of your size. To put it bluntly, and with as much sarcasm as possible:

The hell else do you want?? :P

Given the size,I don't think it will be feasible to give the Brain of Courage full articulation. It's like hoping that the "Spike" figure in MP-10 to have the same features (which will rack up the costs)

Dr. Wu is a 3rd party company, those guys can charge as much as they want. They aren't tied up as much as Tomy has to deal with costs despite the typical stereotype against multinationals/big corporations short selling us.

Remember how there were such big plans for UM? But costs was the primary concern in one of the interviews released.

And one thing, just what else can you add to such a wee wee figure? Head articulation? Remember, he already carries the face/brainmaster gimmick etc.

Besides, if I/you have Starsaber now, I'd be playing with his default/super mode over the Brainmaster.

I'm saying it's possible and feasible to give a small figure articulation. I'm sorry if you enjoy the crappy Spike that doesn't even look like Spike or have a face (!), but wait, not sorry.

FACE PALM!

Nowhere did I say I enjoyed the MP-10 Spike figure to a point of putting it on a pedestal.I used it as an analogy about incorporating too much impractical features to an accessory that will, if at all,add to the awesome playability of an already great product....the MP-10. I bought MP-10 for Optimus! Good that Tomy included Spike........period. Could they have put more articulation? Maybe? Add more facial details? Doubt it....the scale is just too small (by the by, if you mean details like the figs in Human Alliance.....well no thanks)

Speaking of details, I'd rather the type used on the KISS Players figs.

I could be wrong but looking at the comparison pics but the brain component looks a tad smaller then the older brainmasters. Put me in the category thoughof not caring about his poseability, MP Star Saber is the real prize for me, and I need him to have his face :lol:

This! :BOWDOWN:

Now that the OP started the ball rolling (note sarcasm)concerning the Brain of "Courage" lack of features. Here are the features I want to be added to the Brainmaster

1.Full 360 degree head rotation
2.Hip swivel
3.Light piping eyes
4.Shoulder and elbow points of articulation
5.Fist can be rotated, fingers poseable can grip weapons
6.Thigh, knee and feet fully articulated
7.Detailed paint apps on the face which can be appreciated with a magnifying loupe

Did I miss anything else >:oP

And tucks you in the bed before you sleep. :lol:

Seriously, given that size, I seriously wonder just what else can you add to the "brain". Not that he ever showed up in the show except during the combination sequences. It seems that Tomy will just focus/enhance the MP based on what was shown in the cartoon. UM for example never showed up as naked and white Optimus so they got their butts covered by having n MP with no core robot (too bad that Lambor didn't come with a rocket pack.

There's also 10: light and sounds gimmick and of course the legendary number 11: automates the whole star saber transformation process exactly like the cartoon and with accompanying music :P

@Sabrblade, in my defense, my European version of Braver has been packed up ready for move so I couldn't do a comparison with Super Fire Convoy :lol:

You know, I'm surprised no one's made this kind of joke yet:

They're Saber and the Brain
Yes, Saber and the Brain
One is a swordsman, the other's just plain
Stands in the chest in place
Turns into his face
They're Saber, they're Saber and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain

Before each fight is done, they strive protect us
Fighting all Decepticons, they'll defeat Dezsaras

They're Saber and the Brain
Yes, Saber and the Brain
The V-Star shows up, to let them "Battle Up!"
As Star Saber strikes first
He'll save the universe
They're Saber, they're Saber and the Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, SAY GO!





EDIT: Two more size comparison pics. This time it's Saber in his torso configuration for his "Battle Up!" combination with the V-Star to form Star Saber:

Just an FYI, we aren't going to news these because these images are getting ridiculous. These images are great for forum topic discussion, but these images shouldn't get the news feed treatment. Color images of Star Saber or new features on Star Saber are what should get news'ed next.

What about it is not to your liking? Based on when this comment appeared, I wondered if there was confusion about the V-Star being G1 or MP. Was there something in the newest prototype pics? (Just looking for clarification on the original comment, and hoping to smooth some things over. Image)

I had already posted before the decision was made, I apologise for that.


Ryan's point still stands: we will not post any further size comparisons on the front page, unless they reveal something entirely new, or it's a full-colour shot. :D

What about it is not to your liking? Based on when this comment appeared, I wondered if there was confusion about the V-Star being G1 or MP. Was there something in the newest prototype pics? (Just looking for clarification on the original comment, and hoping to smooth some things over. Image)


Want to know too? Why do you dislike the new version?

I would also like to know why you dislike it now, is it something to do with the fact its smaller then it's predecessor.

The look that it could combine with victory Leo though is decreasing with each new comparsion pic. Looks like it will just be too small to combine.

The reason why I don't really like it is because, yes, it's smaller than its predecessor. Star Saber's Standard Mode is the same size as MP Prowl which I find it out of scale. The only good thing about this toy is that it has a lot more articulation than the G1 version. It really bothers me that this toy is small. I'm sorry if I have upset any of you for stating my reason. Might be best to keep the original Star Saber. :-(

As Sabrblade has said, that puts him more-or-less cartoon-accurate scale to the upcoming Wheeljack in small form.

Don't worry about it. Your entitled to your opinion :) We only wanted to know because you didn't explain at the time, or at least that's why I wanted to know.

It is not out of scale. The larger Star Saber form is bigger than the original toy:

It's only the toy's Saber form and the Brain of Courage that are smaller, and that's for the sake of show-accuracy.

In the cartoon, Saber was the same height as Perceptor, who was the same height as Wheeljack:

I'm with OptimalOptimus2 on this. Saber and Yukio are too small. Star Saber combined looks awesome, and it's great that Saber is the same size as the Autobot Cars in the Masterpiece line, but some times the cartoon "scale" needs to get tossed out the window. Bumblebee should've been bigger too.
