    Probably because Star Saber vs. Megatron isn't a fair fight to begin with :p .

    Ya know, I never liked the Victory Saber combo...

    It takes two incredible figures and produces one very mediocre combiner. That, and Victory Leo is almost entirely lost in the deal.

    Individually though, they're both masterpieces of TF history.

    Love Star Saber! He's one of the coolest Autobots leaders EVER! I just wish they'd make an articulated version of the guy...

    Yeah, I share those sentiments. Aside from massive shoulder cannons Star Saber seems to gain nothing and Victory Leo is basically lost in the combo. Never owned the original toy, but I had the Robot Masters set of the two (which is basically just shrunken originals in many ways) and while I loved the two smaller figures the combined form (along with it's lack of articulation... I mean, why redo a toy if you're not going to improve upon them) annoyed me.

    Star Saber... Iron Chief... he cut Megatron up good... :D

    Star Saber is one of the best Cybertron Supreme Commanders. He's the best swordsman to show for it.

    What character?

    Seriously, the only thing Star Saber has going for him is that apparently if you got the looks, you don't need this thing called personality.

    He's the amalgam of all the Japanese autobot leader clich├ęs ever, boosted to factor ten. And that's all he has. I find it sort of ironic that for someone who's an actual stepfather, he completely lacks all the fatherly qualities of Optimus Prime.

    I'd still buy a Victory Saber reissue if they did one, though.

    Megatron in his original form, nope. Super/Ultra Megatron from Battlestars, in the other hand...

    He's my favorite Autobot leader, mainly for his design. He was meant to be 'Jet Convoy' but Takara decided to change his name at the last moment. Star Saber is also the grandfather of the Brave series (Yuusha). Some of the Exkaiser toys were originally designed for the next TF series after Victory (the bullet trains GreenRaker and BlueRaker) but since TF's popularity was low Takara opted for a new 'packaging'/show.

    Overall, you can't hate a Cybertron leader who has F*CKING MACHINE GUNS BUILT INTO HIS HEAD. That last battle with Deszaras is one of the most memorable scenes in the whole TF history, dude is a walking arsenal.

    A Star Saber Masterpiece? I doubt it, but after Megatron, I can believe in anything. But a Masterpiece Deszaras would rock even more.

    Yeah, Deszaras. For me it's a tie between he and Megatron when it comes to my favorite Destron leader. I like the overall middle east sheik look he has, with a scimitar and a mecha tiger as a pet.

    Star Saber had barely any personality at all, besides being 'bland leader type'.

    I've always loved the Brainmaster gimmick. But I find his spaceship mode to be kind of underwhelming. I'd scoop up a reissue, most def.
