    Victory Saber! Looks like a slightly modified Robot Masters version to me, but the image is just a teaser so it's time to wait...

    Obviously I'll need to see more before I can say whether I want it or not, but it looks promising.

    its confusing, the posts; its just one of the posts undernearth saying its a fan mod RM, but it doesn't mean truth. like our forum, just because a member claim someone as fact, when its their opinion, it doesn't mean its true =)

    That's completely RM Star Saber(maybe different back cannons?)

    Still it could just be a placeholder/teaser image for something later... but nothing to get excited about without actual information.

    As much as I'd love a new star saber but I'd rather it wasn't a 3rd party item.

    A year ago I'd have said Hasbro would never do one.

    Post Straxus/Thunderwing I have hopes that it'll happen one day.

    If not, it's surprising no one's attempted it yet in the 3rd party scene - so I'm hopeful this might bear fruit.

    Any new Star saber would do it for me.

    As long as this 3P one is good I'll end up getting it and an official one if we ever do down the line 8D

    I'm curious though, how well known is Star Saber among collectors in the US? I'm sure the casual TF fan wouldn't know at all. I'm guessing a lot of collectors don't really care, so if Hasbro does make one, I'm afraid it's gonna end up a deluxe, which would be a real waste.

    True but at least Straxus made appearances in the US comics, altho they had to screw the toy up and name him Darkmount.

    And yeah, he ended up a deluxe :p
