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.
