I just noticed something. How articulate are Ginrai's legs? In all these images, his legs are barely repositioned from his standard pose. Can his knees even bend at all?

These are all very nice, but having never followed the Japanese headmasters, I'm not drawn to them like other figures.

Looking at the shots of the back of the figure, his knees appear to have a double joint... why they didn't detail this is anyone's guess, but it certainly does appear to be movable.

Sorry if this has been discussed elsewhere, but are these officially licensed?

I think they are. Shame the link in the news item is off by one letter (the h in http://). Here's the real link:

5 faces and they cant give you one without that corny hairpiece sticking over his forehead ??? Cartoon accurate or not, it's just plain annoying like the pointy hair on Alphalpha or those 2 puff balls on Archie's head.

I must admit the Minerva doll is growing on me. It might be the first and only doll I ever buy. I wont even try to sugarcoat it. It is what it is.

Give it a rest already with the doll nonsense. If it doesn't have any soft material and/or removable clothing, it ain't a doll. The word "figure" is even in the product's name for crying out loud.

In fact, I dare you to try cuddling with these without hurting youself (and without being careful, mind you).

I got nothing but respect for you my friend. But in my "culture" it is considered a doll. Some collectors might be in denial and try to create a new category for the pieces that sounds more "acceptable to guys". But at the end of the day it's still a doll. Just like the 1972 GI Joe nurse doll that they tried to pass off as an "action figure" to sell to boys. (and failed miserably) And I might just buy Minerva, but I wont sugarcoat the truth. ;)

You know what, if this stupid discussion about what is a doll and what's an action figure starts up again I will blindly issue warnings to anyone involved, no matter which side they're on or how they phrase their post.

Knowing how the Japanese market ensures the impetus to purchase the variant, I wonder how much the Minerva "Nightbeat" version will cost?

And hopefully Ginrai won't be more expensive than Minerva.

CM's Corp have provided another update on their upcoming Guttu Kuru Headmaster/Powermaster figures. The Nightbeat repaint of Minerva will be a Summer Wonderfest Exclusive and will come with the Marvel Comic's style Hi-Q variant head for Ginrai. Images mirrored below.

Jean-Luc Picard as a Headmaster.

"Make it so."

Yeah, see guys? Hi-Q isn't black. ;)

Oh, if only he looked more like Patrick Stewart. Then he'd also be Professor X in addition to Captain Picard.

Though, "as a Powermaster", not "Headmaster". :-B

That's what I get for posting before caffeine.

Though, it being a Headmaster would make it all the more perfect, as you say it looks like Picard, who was played by Patrick Stewart, who also played Charles Xavier, who was also the "Headmaster" of the Xavier Institute (A.K.A. the X-Mansion) in the X-Men fiction. It all comes full circle. :-B :-B :-B

Why does Hi-Q look so mad? I prefer the Ginrai head, though...

You'd be angry too if you had to figure out how to remove your metal robotic suit every time you had to use the bathroom. :KREMZEEK:

Lol these aren't as bad as people have told me. I can't imagine them being very popular though...

I am still iffy about this piece, especially after watching Masterforce. What I mean that while the figure is series accurate, the series not my favorite of the five shown on Japanese television. (Six, if you include Car Robots, which became an official Generation 1 series in 2007.)

However, I am also iffy about the possibility of adding Stepper from the TFC line. Because even though Ginrai is not really a Transformer, he looks like he would be a nice display piece. However, he is too pricey and I'd prefer seeking Stepper... Even though I do not have the time nor funds to back track for him.

So for the Masterforce fans and collectors of Supreme Commanders... Get him. The rest, up to you as I have to pass. >:oP
