    Star Saber is amazing. I simply cannot afford to collect Masterpiece, but the last four (Bee, Wheeljack, Magnus and this one) make it really, really hard for me. :( 

    Can anyone shed any light on the movie Prime on the bottom left? Is it a custom? For a moment I thought it might be the model kit painted up really nice, but then I noticed he has the inaccurate (Leader) sword. Thanks!

    Just take my money, take it now and give me Star Saber lol. Seriously I buy very few MP figures because of cost and space but he will be one that I get. I really do hope they give us a Victory Leo and Deszaras

    That's a gaming arcade prize figure - 16 cm tall and from what I have seen no articulations. Looks very nice.

    According to the article 400,000 original Star Saber toys were sold back then.

    I'm diggin' saber more than I am Star Saber, but I'm getting more and more excited for this set.

    I'm not really sure of what I'm looking it when I look at the Brainmaster gimmick. Does he just stand in the chest and the face gimmick comes from something else, or does the face actually come out of the Brainmaster?

    Very cool!

    Doesn't look like the face is part of the brainmaster as in the G1 toy, but the illusion is there. When the brainmaster rises upwards he must push up the part that has the face in. I guess the disconnect there is part of what allows the Saber head to articulate.

    Cant wait for this guy - just looks soooo cool!

    It shows that Star Saber is a passion project of Yuki's, with all those amazing details.

    Cannot wait.

    Awesome!!

    Dont think we'd seen the big robot's shield before, had we? Anyone think that's just an accessory or would come from part of the jet?

    Yes, this harmonizes so well with the eloquent words Shogo Hasui had said on his approach to the MP line in the guidebook. So far at least, to me, there's nothing about Masterpiece Star Saber that doesn't impress.

    For one thing, there's a tantalizing first look at the nosecone/sword hilt transformation.

    Still wish Star Saber was a little bigger, but he's great regardless!
