TakaraTomy has just recently given an update to the previously reported 30th Anniversary Masterpiece Fans Choice figure. The current pick is Star Saber, the leader of the Cybertrons from the Transformers Victory series.
*Important note: This is an interim report, and it is not the final result of the poll.*
While this poll report is preliminary, here are the current standings:

Star Saber is the current first choice.
The second runner up is . . . Micron Legend Convoy (Super Mode)/, or Armada Optimus Prime to the fans in the US!
Dia Atlas, from the Transformers Zone series, is the third place vote.

Will Star Saber end up winning the Fan's Choice vote? Stay tuned, as TFW2005.COM will be sure to bring you the news!

shows japan must really love superlink, which i can see, seeing as they are STILL making microns to this day

seriously, i'd love for all 3 of these to get masterpiece figures, but so happy for star saber.

I CAN'T WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT
Furyan
I was afraid of this,as he was the only one I wanted to buy if made MP style. My wallet hurts already. But yay!

(micron legend)

Armada Prime would have been awesome, but yeah, I'll get a Star Saber.

Probably has no chance in hell of seeing a US release.

Anyways, REALLY REALLY REALLY hyped for MP Star Saber showing up at some point.

Huh, I just assumed Ginrai would win. Still, Star Saber is cool and a welcome addition to the MP line, if it in fact does happen.

(I just hope Victory Leo follows, eventually.)
Type-R
2nd and 3rd places are rather questionable. I expected Super Ginrai to be in the top 3 at least.

It's hard to believe this isn't rigged in some way. The lead time needed to conceptualize, design and engineer an MP level figure is probably a year if not more. If this is to be released in the 30th anniversary, work would have already begun before the results were released.

Can't really complain since we'll be getting MP Star Saber.

ginrai would of won if it it was an international poll, but with japan, they are crazy about star saber, so he was a shoe-in

i can safely bet this poll was just to justify making star saber
AndreyOfDoom
Not surprised at the top 3 due to Japan interest. Armada Prime probably needed a Masterpiece more than any of the others lol. Nothing can save that figure.

The MP Armada Prime would probably have a very cool trailer transformation to get the leg mode.
Zaibach
Awesome. I was hoping Star Saber would win. I just wonder how long it will be for a release. I'm guessing around the end of next year.
Gaokaiser
Guys, calm down. This is an interim report, not the final result.
Star Saber
YEEEEEESSSSSSS!

Words cannot express how happy I am, that MP is so bought!
Michel_Beckers
im no mp collector, but i think he will be great.
Jetbolt
Cool, but I'm shocked that Armada Prime got that many votes.

Well crap, there goes my great day!

Haha seriously though, good to see SS in the lead, was wondering how Dai Atlas and Armada Prime could place so high.

That makes me wonder... How the fuck will they make the Brainmaster, Yuki, interact with full functionality in the Saber and Star Saber body modules?

updated post to not confuse people

Interim report or no, the fact that Star Saber is in the lead has restored some of my faith in this fandom. Every retailer that had this "MP vote" posted as a news story on Facebook had it flooded with comments from people wanting another damn Optimus. I'm stoked, given Star Saber's sheer size there's no way they're going to make him to the proper scale with new MPs—the toy would be ridiculously huge. It'll probably end up being a size that'll work well with either MPs or Classics depending on how you view Star Saber's scale.

Plus if he wins it seems only logical that we'll end up geting an MP Victory Leo out of the deal.
ssjkazer
I wanted max the most lol.

But man starsaber oh man how wicked
GaussGunner
It remains else to make Sonic Bomber, Roadfire and Victory Leo!)
Slimaximus
Go go transformers victory

Ooooooh, ok. I had thought it was supposed to go until 31 August and not July but I figured I was just misremembering.
Yggdrasil
Considering just how much of a raging steel boner the fandom has for Optimus Prime I'm surpised that all of the first three spots AREN'T some variations of him.

That said FUCK YES STAR SABER! WIN IT! WIN IT!
Obakemono
Crap.

My hope of a masterpiece powermaster prime armor is dwindling fast.

*sadness overwhelming*
Knightdramon
Good thing he's in the lead. For me it was a tie between Maximus and Saber, with Armada Prime and Dai Atlas behind them. Shocked about Maximus.

There's still a month to go, though. I'm estimating a late 2014 release.
Sammael
Can't wait.
FoC Grimlock
I've never heard of Star Saber really but I looked him up and that'll make a pretty cool Masterpiece. Be nice to see a different look that was selected by fans.
LegendAntihero
If they did Armada Optimus, oh man,. that toy's been itching for an update with more articulation and a better head sculpt for the super mode.
TigerBlade
Pass, pass & pass.
LazyAza
Excellent exactly the figure I want to win! woot
Niv3k
Armada optimus please win!
barrelks
I would take Star Saber, but for some reason Powermaster Optimus keeps pulling at me, just because I think they could make it epic (not that they wouldn't make Star Saber epic).
Ketchup
I am so glad Star Saber is in the lead. Out of all the options I think he has the most potential for an awesome Masterpiece figure. I would love to vote in the poll, but unfortunately I have no recent Takara items with points that qualify.
Robogeek28
Star Saber or Ginrai would be my main wants so I'm happy right now.
TCJJ
Japan, I LOVE YOU. Way to pick the three best choices, especially with Star Saber at #1. And if these ALL get made into Masterpieces (PLEASE DO IT TAKARATOMY), I will happily auction off my soul, my liver, and one of my kidneys, so that I can afford these (just don't hold me to that, because I might find..... OTHER means of obtaining money, that may or may not be legal).
Scaleface
I still think this isn't going to be a new mold. They will just reissue G1 Starsaber with metallic paint or something.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Armada Prime please.

They wouldn't taint the mp line like that, my guess is they have preliminary designs for all the choices, that said Star Saber and God Ginrai are my top 2 with dai atlas, primal and Maximusrounding out my top 5
SkywarpsNipples
If Star Sabre does end up being the newest Masterpiece, then that means we may see Victory Leo as well. A Masterpiece of him would be my ultimate grail.
