Quite a while ago we reported the beginning of the Fan Poll Choice Masterpiece Star Saber's journey to production, with some early study sketches. Today, Twitter account TFYuki has teased what could be a fairly big reveal for the figure coming tomorrow. Check out the image below, which appears to feature the original toy's feet over some new design sketches, and speculate away!

UPDATE: The account has also tweeted an image of the new figure's prototype feet, mirrored below.

So everyone, tomorrow at the Tomy booth at Tokyo Toy Show 2014 "Let's Say Go!"

Nice. I'm highly anticipating this guy. Should be a very nice change of pace aesthetics-wise.

I just hope they do another MP fan poll, but this time, featuring Decepticon leaders!

Heh, most of the cons that I wanted an MP of is mostly the non-leaders. MP LioKaiser would be dope, but that's stepping into combiner territory.

Makes you wonder though; Which con leader would most Japanese TF fans pick? I can't quite imagine them picking Megatron, so perhaps Galvatron? Gigatron is kinda too bizzare looking, and Scorponok's kinda meh. Maybe Overlord(if he qualifies as a leader alongside BlackZarak), Cybertron Megatron and Reverse Convoy. Or maybe they'll just pick Deathsaurus just to go with StarSaber.

Is this the result of that MP fan poll that featured all the Primes? Meaning no MP Armada Optimus? :-(

I literally said 'OMG' out loud when I saw the prototype foot. :o I feel like this has been the best year for Japanese releases in a long, long time.

I would've laughed my butt off if that picture had been of the bottom of the foot.

Will be waiting in anticipation. MP-11 Starscream and Star Saber are the two Masterpieces I really want. Hopefully it won't be overwhelmingly awesome that it will make me want Star Saber more than Starscream... :PRAY:

You understand that this project was separate from the actual Masterpiece line, so that it wouldn't interfere with the potential work on those that you named... right? And Star Saber has a buttload of popularity in Japan, so them getting an MP Star Saber is just as important as us getting an MP Optimus Prime.

Cool yer jets, buddy. We'll get those characters in due time.

It's even being worked on by its own designer who is a different person from the main MP designer, and this guy working on Star Saber is perfect for the job since he specializes on designing robots of the same variety as Star Saber.

BTW, Star Saber is a G1 commander. Largely considered the "greatest" one in Japan.

how has this not been posted yet?

Despite designer Hisashi Yuki's request via Twitter and a prominent no photography sign, we have a first glimpse at Masterpiece Star Saber in prototype form from Tokyo Toy Show, happening right now. The image shows Star Saber in his super robot form in a glass display case. Whether we'll see anything more of the figure from this event is unknown, but if one photo got out, more will likely follow!
