Posted on 08-25-2014 at 04:42 PM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
27463169d1408968579-takara-masterpiece-fans-choice-winner-star-saber-bv4g1t-cuaivlay Hisashi Yuki has tweeted a fresh image of the prototype of Masterpiece Star Saber. This new image shows the core robot - named Saber - alongside the original Generation 1 Saber robot. This image shows that the new Masterpiece edition of Saber is smaller than his Generation 1 original, but also shows up just how much more detailed and animated the new figures design is - check out the much improved chest proportions, for example! We've attached the new image to this story - keep it TFW for more Masterpiece Transformers news!

Josh-Feldman-Hasbro-Studios-Transformers Hasbro Studios scored a major win today by bringing in Josh Feldman to the team for a new position titled head of development of the company's film and TV division.

Joe' film, says Stephen Davis; president of Hasbro Studios and global entertainment and licensing for Hasbro. "His focus will be on both our franchise and new brands in live-action and animation, and Josh will work closely with the studio’s TV development, brand, design, digital and licensing teams to deliver full storytelling integration across our brand blueprint."

Masterpiece Star Saber Prototype Images from Dengeki Hobby Magazine

Posted on 08-24-2014 at 10:29 AM by Sol Fury under Transformers Masterpiece
Ke4sUdW Japanese hobby magazine Dengeki Hobby has some new images of the prototype of the Masterpiece Fan's Choice figure, Star Saber. The commander of the Cybertrons in the Japanese continuity, Star Saber is loaded with features authentic to the original toy.

Of note is that the Brainmaster figure is present - as we saw in previous images - and there is a demonstration of how the Brainmaster feature works this time out. Unlike the original - where the smaller robot's face was within the Brainmaster figure - this time out it seems like the face is within the robot, with the Brainmaster merely fitting in the chest. This does make the Saber portion of Star Saber somewhat animation-accurate, though.

The combination of smaller Saber robot and V-Star booster module for the larger Star Saber robot are also demonstrated, along with the lateral arm movement of the full Star Saber figure. There's also a look at some more dynamic poses from both Saber and Star Saber, plus concealed rocket pods for the jet mode - again, all of this seems to be very heavily taken from the look of Star Saber in the animation.

Check out the scans - coming at you via Taghobby - attached to this post.
