    This is, I guess when lg leader megatron got shot by legends skids, he became a tiny headmaster (and took control of the galvatron transtector)

    So, does that mean Greatshot's headmaster is Sappo? Because Chromedomes reaction to him seems that way.

    The random size changes make it a little confusing, and Saber's (the half form of star saber) looks like his design is modded a little. Then there's the smaller "saber" that looks like he's TR head sized/people sized. Also the Saber swords and short sword Greatshot uses, aren't those the nose cone of star saber's jet mode? That jet torso on Saber throws me off too. I'm used that torso plating on the full Star Saber, while that torso piece is the feet on the smaller Saber robot.

    Interesting though overall, and I like the ideas it presents. Some interesting Star Saber concept ideas too. Like the more compacted combined jet mode. Not sure how much I like the idea of the "Saber" robot being the full star saber suit version without the Star Saber helmet though. Hope that's not what that toy will end up like. Star Saber needs to be able to have the smaller jet mode still for the smaller "Saber" robot. But TR is definitely the way to go for the brainmaster gimmick!

    In the Victory anime Star Saber would simply remove the larger helmet when not in battle, without separating from the armor in most instances. So I think that's what it's showing here. Meanwhile the smallest Brainmaster version has always resembled a blocker version of his Super Mode sans helmet.

    OK, so all I'm managing to glean from this so far without translations is M-pregatron and Overlord uses Headmaster Sixshot on Greatshot's body to revive Jack for some reason, and then Greatshot gets shot in the stomach but everyone still loves Greatshot and they're all "anata wa ichiban kūrudesu, Gurētoshotto!".

    You sure about that? We've gotten no confirmation from anywhere.

    Not to mention Star Saber has shown up in Legends material before; they just use the MP toy as a stand-in.

    I hope we get translations of these comics soon. It's hard to tell what's going on.

    Looks like Giga and damaged Sixshot Titanmaster dude are helping Star Saber do...something to Greatshot. Greatshot and Star Saber team up. They take turns riding each other and make me really wish there was a Generations Star Saber. From there it's really confusing because in one panel Greatshot has a big hole in him and in the next he's fine, and then he's hurt again, and then he's fine again.

    BTW, I see you there, Powered Convoy/Delta Magnus. I'm surprised we never got a repaint of the Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus figure.

    Just quote it, copy it. Then go to your signature settings and paste it.

    I think yeah it’s jack. Sixshot’s titanmaster is based off him which is kind of weird considering he brain washed him.

    The smallest one yeah. But I'm used to the inbetween one looking more like the MP between forms one. Which the size change threw me off when he was the same size as the others in the HQ. But the shoulders matching the full armored form makes sense now that you mention that "removing the helmet" aspect. Forgot about that. I'm used to Star Saber being near combined Liokaiser size as opposed to normal bot size.

    Hoping they don't skimp on the various forms if he gets a generations figure. Because the transformation part is what also threw me off. Where it had the red torso piece looking like it was a decorative and the red jet doesn't disconnect at all, but then a later panel you see it embedded in the full jet form like it still can. Hopefully it's artistic license and not foreshadowing what the real one will be like. Though I do love that more compacted combined jet mode. Had a nice blend of energon Wingsaber to the vehicle mode while staying pure star saber. As long as the Generations version (if they make one!) has all 3 forms, that's exactly what it needs to be. Down to extra swords too and a TR cockpit. And maybe other TR seats if there is unused empty space like in the rear legs for ship cargo loading/apc ship type. But the hollow places to good use for a leader classed mold that matches Overlord/Sky Shadow/Greatshot/Sixshot's height.
