Transformers Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber

So you gain pointy shield, and does not spoil the look. Lastly, his hands are a bit better than Saber's such that his index finger is separately hinged from the remaining other three fingers, however, the thumb stays static. The super mode transforms easily, and even though the plastic feels a bit lighter than the other figure, I don't think it detracts from the finished product at all. Unfortunately the hands' grip isn't quite as secure this time around, with the shield in particularly being quite wobbly in use. This opens up way more stylish sword posing opportunities. I am very happy with him. The cockpit does open and there is a seat for the Brain of Courage what a frickin name for a small robot who hides inside 2 sets of armour.

As well as its use in close combat, it can also be used at a distance, absorbing lightening or energy weapon attacks which can then be fired back at the enemy. It is a surprise then, that his blockiness and scale do not really hinder articulation in any meaningful way. Due to the size and weight of the figure you'd think balancing might be an issue, but those flat feet provide plenty of support that's also supplemented by additional rotation at the knees. Getting the two components to lock together can be quite daunting as I'll go into a bit more later on but as long as you take care and read the instructions before forcing it in you shouldn't have any problems. I wasn't expecting much movement from a masterpiece since they are more of display pieces for me but this definitely surprised me. The legs are well articulated but you have to remember this is a large, heavy figure whose key feature is that chunky aesthetic - so you can only go so far in terms of dynamism. Along with any other Transformers Victory characters TakaraTomy may choose to pump out.

My Shiny Toy Robots: Toybox REVIEW: Transformers Masterpiece MP

Transformers Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber

The way this figure was designed to hold his sword makes absolutely no sense, and you can't get him to securely hold it the right way, short handle or long handle. Known for his courage and unending passion for justice, Star Saber is driven to quash evil wherever he finds it. Works with V-Star as a combat jet and is also found riding atop V-Star whilst in combat. His main jet body is nicely done, with good chrome work on the legs and a surprisingly satisfying brainmaster gimmick. You place the Brain of Courage see:tiny robo Russian nesting doll into Sabers chest, and then close the door. It also separates to convert to smaller figures.

What's amazing is that once you transform Saber into Star Saber's chest, there's a flip you need to make on the vents of the plane to change it from red vents to black vents which also contributes to how much accurate this guy can get. I love the design and the scale of it. The new reprolabels make it look more toy-centric with the vehicle detailing, which I like. In terms of functionality there isn't a whole lot to say about the V-Star other than it's a hulking piece of plastic both in terms of size and weight. It is cool, but super tight and I was a bit concerned that with too much force it would snap. His face is even that smug, moral high ground tent pitching leader face from the show. Victory fans will know that Star Saber is able to combine with him to become Victory Saber, which essentially gives him some fancy boots, wings and a pair of shoulder cannons.

You pull the legs out, and extend the arms Flip the feet up and you could be forgiven for thinking you are almost done but there is a hidden step here, whereby you need to rotate the thighs if you want to move them forwards. I just now need to find a bigger shelf to put him on haha. Despite being called Saber, he does also come with a large rifle, and luckily due to his articulation you can pull off a wide array of poses with it. The greatest swordsman in the universe, the Saber Blade is his main weapon which he uses for defence and attack. Free exchange or resend, if it was damaged or lost on shiping way.

Hands down, the best head design of the entire Masterpiece line so far. This exclusively Autobot group are similar to the previous ones in that they are smaller robots that link up to larger 'Transtector' bodies, only this time the smaller robot becomes the face and cerebral circuits. It has a strong enough defence to withstand the attacks from the Fortress. Star Saber is a Brainmaster, the gimmick being a smaller robot is placed in the chest of a larger robot, when the chest is closed, the larger robots face is revealed. All content sourced by fans, online websites, and or other fan community sources. I can't fathom why Star Saber would hold his sword with the flat end facing forward, but that's the only way for him to securely hold it. He does come with the shield that I mentioned earlier was a stand.

Paypal Shipping and Handling: We only ship to ebay registered address. It simply pegs into the hilt and away you go. Data has been shared for news reporting purposes only. The transformation from jet is pretty fun, with the entire jet nose being removed, and the arms folding out with a weird elbow hinge. It isn't an intentional storage spot and isn't completely secure, but it does the job well enough and is mostly likely going to be out of sight in a display. A good improvement on Star Saber is the fact that his ankles can now tilt which does a lot to help support poses and of course, you can push his feet down to emulate a tip-toe feature. Please don't leave negative or neutral feedbcak,if any problem with my product,you should contact me first, i am sure everything could be solved by communication.

Toybox Soapbox: Transformers MP

Transformers Masterpiece MP-24 Star Saber

It is cool, and only featured in one episode. Six deluxe figures would stand at 12 inches tall like Star Saber. This is the mode the Autobot Leader is usually seen in when not in battle, averaging the height of an ordinary Transformer in-series while the complete Star Saber is more combiner sized. The transformation is easy but fun, the individual figures look stunning, and the combined mode is an imposing piece in any collection. Sabers legs flip up onto his chest, and you can also rotate the vents so they look different. Star Saber is a Brainmaster containing the Brain of Courage within him; this feature allows him to power up his courage. It featured some of the later toys that we got in the west like the Micomasters, but the Autobot leader, instead of being a Red truck, was a curiously Gundam-esque bright Red.
