This week, Iván brings us a beautiful Star Saber. Here is what he has to say about it:
Star saber is a character who I always liked a lot, along with Desazaras. Unfortunately there are not many toys of this robot (in comparison with Prime).
The truth is that I think that Victory had the most attractive character designs. I liked them all ...Although some toys do not do the characters justice.
I would love to see a series of comics with these characters (IDW take note! Jim, you make the script and I'll draw it!) Hehhe is a joke, actually the problem is that maybe, this series is not well known outside of japan, like Masterforce. Another difficulty may be that Victory, like Masterforce, differs too much from the pure G1.
Besides that, neither the animation and the figures were distributed much outside of japan.
I think there is a good opportunity to show the rest of the world these characters ,.... There is an entire universe to explore. Of course, we would have to tweak the concepts and make them not so .. as it were ... Japanese, more universal.
There are many people who do not know that series, but nevertheless when they see it, they are happy. I do not deny Prime Megatron Jazz etc rock ... but I've been seeing for 25 years the same characters, and I want "new metal", new stories etc.
Rodimus I personally never liked as a leader, like I never liked Shockwave for example, but .... Starsaber me as a very worthy leader or follower height of the mythical Prime, in design, in character, or power.... I love this character.... ALL HAIL STARSABER !
