I think this very well may be the first Masterpiece I get.

@ hinesika

Could you post pic of SS's feet? Need to see if there are slots for a potential V-Leo.

I don't get the appeal of the coins...

Victory Leo wouldn't attach to Star Saber's fet via slots or ports or any of that stuff. It would attach by covering up Star Saber's feet like how people wear shoes.

Though, there are these pics of the feet:

It is here. After all the hype surrounding the release of the Takara Tomy fan polled Masterpiece Transformer MP-24 Star Saber, the first video review is offered by YouTuber OptimusPrimeSG in slight advance of general release, and brought to us via a tip by fellow Seibertron.com member KirbyForce1. Watch it below in all its victorious forms, and remember that maybe Primus does not hate you after all!

I know this figure has rabid supporters, but I just don't like it. Looks too much like a vehicle the Power Rangers would ride around in, looking for Putties to beat up before flipping off Rita Repulsa...

Oh, hell yeah! Right around 2:30, there's the ports in the feet to join to Victory Leo! Now we just need to keep buying MPs until they make him- in about 12 years.

If they modernized Star Saber for the Masterpiece line like they did Starscream I would be interested in this but as it is, it looks like a box of Fruit Loops.

I'm sorry, i don't see the resemblance to John Cena at all.

I may have experienced a mini stroke when I saw those possible connection pieces in the feet for Victory Leo. I hope we don't have to wait 12 years.

I predict that this Masterpiece figure will be transformed more times than the rest of my MP collection combined.
The articulation is mad!
This thing is truly astounding.

Finally did the "preorder" for Star Saber on The Chosen Prime. Ten minutes later... order was shipped!

God bless TCP!

I'm really floored by the little details on this one. The sword storage, even the detaching arm on the back of SS's head, screams design excellence. I love MP Magnus, but this has the little flourishes that put it on the level of MP-01. I was excited for this before, but this is better than I anticipated.

My sentiments exactly. This guy has all the bells and whistles and is simply feature packed. That claw clip that can be hidden away blows my mind along with all the Saberblade options. Shield/stand, hidden missiles, die cast galore.
If MP Star Saber starred in The Ring he would be the character to crawl out of the TV.
Yeah! Just yeah!

I am so glad this figure shows so much more thought into its design compared to MP-01 or MP-10. With this fig, the Autobot leaders that received the Masterpiece treatment is now up to 3. Now if Takara will fight the temptation to stop making crappy OP figures and concentrate on the Masterpiecing other Autobot leaders, I will be guaranteed to be broke for many years to come.

Video review was great. Enjoyed seeing the toy get transformed and the gimmicks shown.

Thought the video reviewer went too fast showing off the articulation. Spent more time playing with the swords.

Would have liked to see some size comparisons with other Masterpiece toys.

Think a 3rd party might release a Masterpiece Victory Leo toy faster than Takara.

Hoping the trend of the bigger Masterpieces keep coming.
