Takara's Hisashi Yuki has posted images of Masterpiece Star Saber's Brain of Courage to Twitter, and it's pretty small! It's shown next to the original version, as well as next to Diaclone pilot figures (which for reference are about 1" tall, or the right size to fit in all those empty seats on your G1 Transformers). It's also compared to one of those figures in the seat on Super Fire Convoy/RID Optimus Prime! Keep reading to see all the tininess for yourself!
