1. Star Saber!

Also shown were a couple of Star Saber's character models from the Victory series. It is highly possible that this is the look that Takara Tomy wants to achieve with this Masterpiece figure. Stay tuned to Seibertron.com for further details as they become available.

What? Why!? WHY waste time making this piece of junk from the waning days of G1 when there are so many characters from the 1984 cast they have yet to put in MP form? The current pace of the their MP releases has been beyond lazy and yet they have time to jerk around with Star Saber??? :BOOM:

As Saberblade called it......he's insanely popular in Japan. American opinions don't amount to cr@p over the domestic (Japanese) views.

:APPLAUSE: Hopefully this is translated into reality (but then if Saber is made then Victory Leo can"t be far behind?), this may mark a ground breaking trend for a Masterpiece power up fig for the latter.

I guess you could say Star Saber just nabbed himself a sweet... *puts on sunglasses* ...victory.

...Right, I'll escort myself out.

1. The poll is based on the Autobot Commanders from Headmasters to Cybertron. There would've been no way to vote for other characters. Besides, why celebrate the Transformers' 30th anniversary with a character that could get MP treatment later on when it could be celebrated by making an MP of a Convoy? ;)

2. Star Saber is insanely popular in Japan. It was virtually no contest, he's that popular. And I don't blame them. He has an awesome, streamlined design, in my opinion.

Sweet! Can't wait to see the Super Mode. Do you think they'll keep the Brainmaster gimmick?

Hey, another villain in Masterpiece form that's not a seeker.*






*Because to heck with G1, all I care about at this point is the IDW comics.

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.

My bad as well. I had seen the designs attached to other articles and assumed they were rough sketches for a concept, and had alerted the news team. :oops:

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.

Hmm, doesn't really do anything for me as I don't remember seeing him in G1 cartoons but cool for those who want something a little different.
