Well that's... very random. I've gotta assume they're relying on his popularity outwith IDW to sell well because Star Saber is certainly not the most prolific character in the comics.

Either way though, looks awesome :D

So because the images from our old IDW Star Saber designs post are dead, this forces me to use this image for a comparison.

You have no idea how much this hurts.

After weeks of knowing Flametoys had a non-transforming statue based on IDW's Decepticon Justice Division leader Tarn in the pipeline; we finally have a picture of the prototype! The company's put up a Tweet showing the greyscale prototype of the psychotic Decepticon loyalist and MTMTE villain in all his glory, giving us a rather good idea of how he'll turn out. Check out the image below, be sure to check out Flametoys' teaser for Star Saber and tell us what you think in the forums!

There are some slight Gundam-esque design cues (especially the stance), but if you put this design in a Gundam show it'd stick out like a sore thumb.

Had my attention until I read "non-transforming".

PASS!

Are you sure, because Gundam these days don't really follow any one look. They're all over the map, especially when you start getting into the Build Fighters stuff.

For the record I've been picking up old used Gundam MSIA figures lately.

I used to collect Gundam model kits way back in late 90s early 2000s and I have an SD Gundam figurine on my shelf right here and that thing in that pic makes me think Gundam.

Yeah I was thinking more along the lines of the 'classic' Gundam stuff I used to collect. Stuff that looked like this. And even with this very basic Gundam design I can see many similar elements in that Starsaber figure illustration. Less so in the IDW comic panel. I reckon Flame Toys artist has some experience or interest with Gundam.

Oh, so was I, I was just using those two as an example of just how outlandish Gundam can get. Personally I think Star Saber reminds me a little of this:

So the preorder for Drift just went up on BBTS. I was considering picking up him and Tarn to go with my IDW collection, but turns out Drift is $300. Which means if they scale Tarn is going to be even more. I'm glad I picked up MMC's Kultur, because he's only a fraction of the cost. Yikes.

As reported in our earlier post, about the non-transforming Tarn figure, the Flame Toys Twitter account is bustling with all sorts of new images today! Here we get a peak at an Optimus Prime from their booth at AGCHK!

So far the sketches represent their designs for IDW incarnations of Tarn, Star Saber, Drift, plus Optimus Prime, who does not follow the same aesthetic, for some reason. What else do they have in store? Keep your optics here as we post them here for your viewing pleasure.
