Not only am I loving this more and more with every new picture, I am starting to wonder why there are no preorders open for this yet. With every other MP, preorders have been open for months before we start to see prototype pics lime this. Is this bothering anyone else?

That is the body of the G1 original, you know that, right?

These size comparisons are getting rediculous.

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.

Thanks for sharing, Sabrblade!

I wasn't talking about the original. I know which is which. I'm not a stupid Transformers fan.

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

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.

I'll continue to call the Brainmaster "Brain of Courage" master figures as "Yūki", "Riki", "Chie" and "Waza" despite what TFwiki says (which may be correct). Those words associated with those figures came from somewhere. Those figures have been known as those names for quite some time and it wouldn't be the first time that fan made words made the official leap such as "Generation 1", "Seekers" and other words or names.

TFwiki wrote:For years, Transformers fans have referred (and continue to refer) to the Brainmaster components of Star Saber, Blacker, Braver and Laster as "Yūki", "Riki", "Chie" and "Waza", as if they were proper names. These are, in fact, simply the Japanese words meaning "courage", "strength", "intelligence" and "skill"; the Brains do not have proper names, and are simply known as "Brain of Courage", etc.
