    Hi, Star Saber was always with Optimus Prime of course one of my transformers favourite characters. When i saw the PRIMO´S Victory Saber Masterpiece Custom,
    ( G1 Victory Saber - Star Saber and Victory Leo! )
    i told myself that i must have one Star Saber Masterpiece like this, and finally I tried to make my own custom inspired in the PRIMO´S version with a Star Saber and a MP 01 KO´s, but with some changes, because I wanted a more anime accurate robot mode. I decide to sacrifice the direct transformation of the figure, and only the part of the rear of the legs of Saber is used to form Star Saber, and this give me the chance ( building a new rear part with the parts that I didn’t use) to display the two figures at time.

    With all the figure build i had this:

    And finally, before the Paint job, (I’m very bad with the painting job) we have this:

    Well, at the end I’m very happy with the final figure. (Excuse my English; I’m very bad in this too).

    Man great work! I love what you did with the smaller figure. I articulated one too but couldn't get it to look right when in the chest. I'm glad you made 2.

    Great work!

    :thumbs2: Great custom. Just courious, how was the build of the KO Star Saber that you used. I was thinking of picking one up and repainting it since I don't feel like spend $300 plus for an orginal.

    But again... you did a great job by using the masterpeice prime.

    Thank´s, the KO Star saber has a very good quality plastic, is the same that the original in pieces and size, the only diferences are the colors and the stickers, but if you are thinking in repaint it, is perfect for this.

    HOLY COW he's enormous :jawdropper: 

    This is absolutely BRILLIANT! Colours are spot on and he looks ready to strike some kick ass poses.

    Are we taking notes HARBRO/TAKARA?

    WELL DONE SIR! 1000/10
    Inspiring :D 

    Just curious, 'bout how much this guy set you back to build?
