Wonder if any requests will come in to have this pic taken down since TakaraTomy had ordered no photography of this thing.


Also, HUH?! He's shorter than Ultra Magnus?!

Am I the only one who thought he'd be bigger? :-?
*edit*

I know right?...maybe since he isn't part of the main MP line they haven't made him to fit in size wise? More like a leader sized Star Saber to work with classics?

Still, he looks pretty solid. Although he almost looks like a non posable PVC :lol:

Can't wait to see more 8)

The awesome can not be contained, so he has to be chained. (Yes, I know it's the glare)

So fired up for this one! :michaelbay:

I really love that color scheme on that UM alt-mode all Motormaster-ish looking. :VEHI:

"Let the COUNTDOWN begin"? He used to live there, but wasn't it Moonradar's rocket base in his continuity?

"I wear the chain I forged in life. I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on of my own free will, and of my own free will I wore it. Is its pattern strange to you? Or would you know, the weight and length of the strong coil you bear yourself? It was full as heavy and as long as this, seven Christmas Eves ago. You have laboured on it, since. It is a ponderous chain!"

Oh, yeah, the size thing...He WILL scale well with Classics, I guess. Maybe it's partly because this begs for a Victory Leo to combine with someday, and they couldn't justify making that toy any bigger than this. Really makes me glad Fort Max didn't win; even for a Marvel loyalist like myself, a Masterpiece Max this size would be sort of a letdown.

MP Star Saber has usurped all of my love.


EDIT: I'm praying to TT for a Victory Leo to make Victory Saber tower over the other MPs with his platform shoes.

Even Takara's prototypes are better. Two-tone grey? Splash of red? Geez, that's awesome! :lol:

well, my main collection is that 3" tall line, but I also collect MP and That MP Star Saber is not MP scaled, total fail... maybe is a different and new MP scale, or just size/scaled random like AoE toys. Glad Fortress didn't win, would match with WST rather than MP :APPLAUSE:

What makes you guys think that he's that much smaller than Ultra Magnus? The angle of the picture makes it difficult to tell. It looks like the photographer was holding the camera up on the same level with Magnus but quickly tilted the camera down to snap the photograph of Star Saber (hence why there is only 1 pic). It might be smaller than Magnus but I'd be surprised if he was smaller than the Seeker or Soundwave mold.

In this pic, Star Saber looks very comparable in size to Ultra Magnus.

He probably looked shorter than he's supposed to be because:

a) perspective; &
b) he's much better proportioned and has slimmer legs compared to UM.

But, I guess they couldn't fit in the SaberBlade gimmick huh?

I just got a message from Professor Smooth on Facebook. He was at the show earlier, saw Star Saber in person, and said that Star Saber and Ultra Magnus are "Very similar in size".
