Depending on how long until this gets released I might try to get it lol.
I lightened it up a bit. Hekkkkk it looks so good
Oh MAN. I love this colour scheme... I always wanted Takara to repaint MP Star Saber in these colours. You'd think they'd want to get their money's worth out of that mold!
Glad to see I'm not the only one!
Nice Gundam figure.
That looks fucking sick!! can\'t wait!
It does look good, but I don't have any attachment to that recolor so won't mind if I miss out, especially with Megatron already on pre-order. Although depending how limited it is, could be a good investment as they tend to hold their value?
I’m still waiting for it!
I really want that black and purple Star Saber. I hope it is not a show exclusive and hard to get.
Black Star Saber. It looks freaking awesome pairing with Megatron
Wow that Megatron looks fantastic!
Those are very nice - they have a slight Gundam like quality to them as original designs already and these models turn that into an asset. That Dark Starsaber is super nice looking. Nice enough to have me wonder how much they cost, and I rarely buy non-transforming Transformers merch unless it's really got something stand out about it. I think these have that.
I actually don't mind the Spikey Death Machine Starsaber IDW has anyway as I kinda see it as fitting in with a War For Cybertron / War Within like Vibe and the sleaker one seems more like a later more "friendly looking" reformating.
I do hope that Starsaber isn't as light and hollow and cheap feeling as the smaller models - to be honest think they are so poor in terms of plastic density that someone needs to knock them off in ABS with painted finishes and no stickers. I bought one of them and though it was such poor quality I didn't buy anymore. If I did ever stumble over a cheap one I'd perhaps looking finding some way to reinforce the interior make it feel less like a cheap polystyrene airfix kit.
Kinda wish they made a Flame Toys Starscream, but this is a neat paintjob.
The original Star Saber is $400, so expect a similar price for the repaint. Build quality is top notch though, I have it and it's definitely one of the best figures in my collection (that includes Bandai Metal Builds Soul of Chogokins, and many Masterpiece figures, as a reference).
Powerburst Tarn was 500 copies total, with most sold at conventions and 100 at D4toys.com, so Dark Star Saber will likely be 500 too. But because of the pandemic, I predict it will be all of them at D4toys.
A Dark Star Saber? Wait, but he already was evil in the Comics... Would it just be Star Saber but serving Unicron and the Inferno?
Yeah when I saw the price, I thought hopefully it will have better plastic quality than the smaller kits.
Meanwhile, an upcoming Gundam model kit trying its darndest to look like an IDW Transformer:
I’m sure I’ve seen that guy in the comics somewhere
Which kit is it? Great headsculpt.
P-Bandai HGBD 1/144 Gundam G-Else [BEFORE]
Because of course all the interesting kits are P-Bandai...
