Custom Starriors Ripsaw action figure by Jin-Saotome Custom Starriors Ripsaw action figure by Jin-Saotome

"Each day the Chaos Crystal was active within Skeletor's lair more and more portals opened - these strange dimensional tears opening all over Eternia. From a far off universe, where Earth had been rendered a wasteland and only intelligent machines roamed. One machine, the Protector class, Ripsaw, was drawn to the portal's light and sucked in! Now, finding itself in a dimension of magic and technology, Ripsaw must find a way to contact his fellow Starriors so they too can learn about this strange land."

Another toy line of the 80's, the Starriors arrive! This week we have a re-imagined version of the Protector class Ripsaw, created in MotUC scale. Using the original head and weapon arm of the figure I took a Rotar body, Extendar limbs, MARS robot lower legs, Captain America Mecha feet, and a Zoid-crab shell for the metallized shield. The shield is magnetic and attached to Ripsaw's original spinning blade-shield arm which was grafted on. Spaz-Stix mirror Chrome airbrush paint was used on the larger shield. Different foil warning/caution stickers were applied like the vintage toy featured and Ripsaw was given metallic blue airbrushed highlights.

This takes me back, man!  I always found the story line to be rather sad, what with the implication that humans vanished and the Starriors were left without answers or closure...

...I imagine it's only time until a 3rd party gets the rights to Starriors and launches a Kickstarter.  Zica just got Sectaurs funded, after all...

For the love of Kaopectate.....
how do toylines as obscure as "The Power Lord" and a not so obscure toylines like "Machine Robo"
both get pretty good modern re-makes made, but the Starriors still haven't?

(not even a 3rd party manufacturer has ever picked them up)

Really cool.
