TOY NEWS FOR 11/20/2013 - TAKARA - TRANSFORMERS MASTERPIECE - FAN'S CHOICE: STAR SABER
I'm going to assume that most Transformers fans know who Star Saber is, but I also know that there are plenty or more casual fans that are thinking, "Who???"
Star Saber was a major character in the TF Universe during the time that the series only aired in Japan. He is also part of the original G1 cannon.
Beyond that, he also becomes the leader of the Autobots, is part of the "Brain Masters" Japanese TF toy line and combines with Victory Leo to become Victory Saber.
He's as popular in Japan as Optimus is in the US.
For all those reasons, he was voted the "most wanted" figure (by a fan poll) to receive his own figure in Takara's Transformers Masterpiece line.
If you want to know more about Star Saber, you can find a lot of the Japanese cartoons on YouTube and I've selected a few images of him to show you below.
