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.

Why you no want more Decepticon leaders? We only have two if you count Starscream and his short stint in the episodes he declares it and in the movie until he dies. On the flip side we have Autobots, Optimus (twice), Rodimus, Magnus, and Grimlock (in the comics I believe.)
MP Super Megatron with a retool into Ultra Megatron might be a pipe dream. But what about MP Galvatron, Skorponok, Overlord, Deszarus, and Shockwave?

And Soundave. He got to be leader in some of the UK comics, in which he was a really good leader.

Would like to see the next big Decepticon Leader Masterpiece toy be G1 Galvatron. Think the character is popular enough and well liked with fans to sell great.

Only if they can figure out how to make him far more Cartoon Accurate than any of his toys have ever been.

I knew I'd forget a couple without checking the wiki first. But it makes for better conversation. Do Bludgeon, Straxus, Jhiaxus, or Thunderwing count? And if we're getting technical and you want to count Starscream I guess he got two molds in the line too. (Three if you count Bayverse 'Screamer but he was never leader.)

I'd think Takara would want to just stick to molds of cartoon characters for now.

Not to mention the recent passing of Mr. Nemoy. Just makes it that much more of a collector's item.

Wasn't Ratbat another Decepticon leader that has an MP?

Right, forgot about him.

Though he does count as a cartoon character.
