I just realized, will the sword's blade even be able to be sheathed into the V-Star's body like on the show and G1 toy?

It may be me, but I'm spotting two storage compartments instead of just one. Could it be that the sword can be split?

This might be the best Transformer.

It appears...to do everything right.

Just like the character it represents. :lol:

The cartoon version, that is. :-B


For those who haven't seen the cartoon, I mean that the cartoon version of Star Saber was made to be a Mr. Perfect type who can do no wrong and is always looked up to as the greatest bot ever.

That is a really ingenious idea to make the one time use weapon as something practical for the toy so you can avoid having to store extra parts separately from the toy.


The more I see Takara bringing in the updates, the more I really want my Star Saber.

Okay, THAT is awesome. I love when they do stuff like that is. I hope this confirms that the shield is not an Amazon-exclusive item.

Yeah, he killed his best friend & turned him in to a pair of platform shoes & a backpack. I am fond of him.

1. It was under Ginrai's request.
2. Ginrai was paralyzed somehow and could not fight the Destron Army and didn't want to live being trapped in his crippled body.

If it were a real life situation, I'd do the same for my friend (except turning him into an elevator shoe/backpack combo).

Star Saber: "What!? Done for!?"
God Ginrai: "Even though I can still talk, I can't stand up, and I can't hold a gun. Can I be a commander like this?"
Star Saber: "You'll get better soon!"
God Ginrai: "Supreme Commander. Allow my body to be reconstructed, so that I can become a power-up for you!"
Star Saber: "R-reconstructed!? You three! Did you tell him bout by power-up reconstruction design!?"
Perceptor/Wheeljack/Minerva: Image
Star Saber: "Why!?"
God Ginrai: "Don't reprimand the doctor. I made him tell me. And this is something that I decided on my own."
Star Saber: "But...!"
God Ginrai: "I will die and be reborn. Even if my appearance changes... Doctor. Show us."
Jean: "No! I don't want the Commander to change into a form like this!"
God Ginrai: "My decision is firm."
Star Saber: "Even if your decision is firm, I won't allow it! You may be reborn into a new lifeform, but the lifeform known as God Ginrai will disappear forever!!"
God Ginrai: "The doctor has already given me a long lecture. Even still, my decision is firm."
Jean: "I still don't like it! Commander Ginrai will be gone..."
God Ginrai: "Jean... I won't die. I'll be reborn."
Jean: "Reborn?"
God Ginrai: "If I am reborn and I combine with the Supreme Commander, we'll be able to stop the Destrons from doing whatever they please!"
Jean: "But the Commander I know will be gone, won't he!?"
God Ginrai: "Jean, please don't worry. I'll always be your friend."
Star Saber: "No. I can't just use your body."
God Ginrai: "There's no time!"
Star Saber: "Time?"
Perceptor: "He will still live if he remains here. But if we are to resurrect him as a new lifeform, we must begin the procedure before any metal corrosion sets in!"


Star Saber: "God Ginrai..."
God Ginrai: "I made this choice myself. Let me fight by your side once again as a Cybertron."
Jean: "Commander Ginrai."
God Ginrai: "Jean... We'll still be together, now and always."
Jean: "We'll really be together always and always, right?"
God Ginrai: "Absolutely."
Perceptor: "Is everything prepared? We're beginning the procedure."
Wheeljack: "Everything's okay!"
Star Saber: "God Ginrai. I'll make sure that your death will not be in vain! And... I'll never forget you."

Did Saber ever hold the sword like that in the show?

Also Victory was 20 years ago, no need to worry about spoilers.

Yup! Sword and shield.

It's my favorite series. I know many people still haven't watched it yet. Just trying to be courteous.
