Metalborg, Sin Buster
FINALLY. GEEZ. It's Metalborg, Sin Buster, the new unit for Dimension Police, fresh from BT17. He Legions with Metalborg, Uru Buster, and for that reward, you can seal any Grade 1 or above guards the opponent has during their guard step. But only when Sin Buster has a power of 30k or more when its time to guard.
So when in Legion, he's 20k. He now needs another 10k. The most reliable and certainly the more spammable way is to use Metalborg, Black Doctor, a 10k booster for the VG while in Legion, to make it 30k. Otherwise, a Mist Ghost or Russell Blizzard can give it the power a booster alone can't give it.
But that's not all. When he attacks a Vanguard and his power is 20k or more, if the attack hits, you draw a card. So most likely, that skill will come alive when you're in Legion, because honestly, getting Sin Buster to 20k before then is pretty reliant on chance due to how complicated it would be.
PG sealing is always an awesome skill, and it helps that he's easy to setup within his own deck. But you do need a fast game all game to use him well, since he gains no extra crit on top.
He's a good card who addresses Dimension Police's main weakness. Use him if you want a good D Police deck.

Metalborg, Sin Buster
"We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.”
Well, with Light Saver Dragon I had to make the Star Wars reference, with this, well, who DIDN'T see a Star Trek reference?
Well, these Metalborgs are new Dimension Police from an alternate dimension, and I think they're from the alternate timeline that the Bluish Flame Liberators, the new Star-Vaders, the Witches and the new Kagero, are all from.  While they fight for Justice like the Dimension Police, they're far less likely to show their enemies any sort of mercy.
Well, Sin Buster here is one of the Uber-tier Legions, and is one of the main reasons why people (especially here on Pojo) are screaming for Daikaiser and Commander Laurel to get banned.
Before I go any further, Sin Buster legions with Ur Buster...  Oh, I get it now, Bushiroad!  Sin Ur...  Sinner, VERY punny!  Anyway, Ur Buster states that when you perform Legion, choose one of your Vanguards and that unit gets +4000 for the turn, and if you hit a vanguard, retire one of your opponent's rear guards.
Anyway, this Legion is much like Seeker Alfred, it's not really a Type-1 or a Type-2, seeing as it's continuous.
Okay, the non-Legion skill.  If Sin Buster here hits a Vanguard and the power is 20,000 or higher, you get to draw a card.  ...Which is pretty much useless unless you're in Legion, seeing as giving this unit +9000 power when not in Legion is a tall task, even for Dimension Police.
And the Legion skill is, when this unit attacks a Vanguard, if the power is 30,000 or higher, it gets the Glory Maelstrom effect.
And this is why people want Daikaiser and Commander Laurel banned.
First of all, unlike Daiyusha, Sin Buster here can be boosted to 30,000 or more to get the effect, it doesn't need to be at 30,000 at the start of the attack, so boosting it with a 10K Legion booster means that the effect will go off.
Secondly, Daikaiser gives it +10K and +1 critical, plus the chance to luck sack a Grade 3 to kill any defense the opponent can muster up.
Third, if you have Commander Laurel out, you can restand Sin Buster and attack again if the attack hits.
So, if you add all three points up, you can kill an opponent when they're at 2 damage, even if you were at 5 before-hand.
Sheesh...  It's...  Rather insane.
And, yes, the thing is still Uber-tier even without Daikaiser, simply because of Laurel and it's Glory Maelstrom skill.
Even if you only swing in for 20,000 on the second attack, you still have 5 more cards in your hand if you got Laurel's skill off that turn.
Rating: 5/5
Legion Rating: 5/5

Edit: When I wrote this review I had no idea that Japan had implemented new restrictions which included Commander Laurel.
