Seibertronian Sabrblade pointed us in the direction of some comparison photos of Takara's Legends Ginrai and Hasbro's new Magnus Prime figure, coming in the soon-to-be-released Siege of Cybertron box set! The photos, from Twitter user autobase_aichi show the two Prime figures in their robot and truck modes, but they also compare their headmasters and weapons! Take a look at the (subtle) differences! (Hint, Hasbro's has the darker front windows.)

I don't think they're actually any bigger. It's an optical illusion due to the angle of the camera in that comparison picture. There are some ambiguous depth cues going on too like the star pattern on the table top and the slightly non-parallel arrangement of the two guns.

There really isn't too much of a difference is there?

I'm surprised that the red and the blue seem to be the exact same.

Just means that Hasbro didn't endeavor to change them.

Why change something that looks good and is already done for them?

Plus there are several little changes that some might like more or less but at the very least it will still probably fit with Godbomber color wise.

Both look more like a real PMP than Hasbro's previous abomination, so I'm okay with that.

But the headmaster for Takara (if I'm interpreting things right) looks spot on for HI-Q, whereas the other one not, so that's a (minor) issue.

Not sure and probably not. Someone asked BBTS and they said they wouldnt have more and the reason they sold out quickly was because people were buying multiple sets. There werent any limits. they changed that for Black Convoy who had a limit of 1 per person. Keep an eye out for canceled preorders. You never know what can happen. people have bills to pay and usually keep the preorder as a placeholder and cancel right before it gets released in case they cant pay.

We should only dare to be stupid :-D

Do you think that GPS will apply ?


I don't see any of the swirls that seem to be present in problematic plastic mixes in that carmel looking "gold"

I like the head scuplt, though, I didn't really care about this part of the set but he looks nice.

I like the Hasbro Magnus Prime there better than Ginrai's robot but Hi-Q looks much worse. I was hoping he'd be in his tradtional colours like Ginrai is.

Come to think of it I'm really starting to like this whole boxset - that thumbnail image with them all standing together as some bizarre ragtag team really helps me enjoy the whole thing and come up with so many headcanons.

Tidal Wave is far too small and looks nothing like the original... but those only end up being a boon to each other when I headcanon this as an alternate body for him. And that carrier mode is to DIE for.
Metalhawk looks amazing and uses an amazing mold. He only looks better with these images =P~
Pounce is adorable. I love him.
I still have huge issues with how Ginrai looks (I really, REALLY cannot get over those feet), but I'm sure there's easily some cool poses you can get him into and the vehicle mode is incredible.
Thunderwing...
... okay, I don't care for Thunderwing; but when the only thing in the boxset I don't particularly want is the friggin' Titan Master, I think I'm okay.

I'm not worried about this "Magnus prime" cab because i will be replacing my Ginari cab with this add-on from perfect PC-16 YES!

I'm sorry, but that is not the Broadside mold, rather it's the Alpha Trion one. The tell-tale sign is the set of legs on the underside, where the wings would be on Broadside. At the time, it was all rumor, and we didn't know how much retooling there would be.

Agreed. I have seen a few items, including this set, pop in and out of stock up until BBTS receives its shipment. Heck, I'm even thinking about canceling. I don't have much patience. If that Takara boxset with Ginrai and GB isn't too expensive, I may jump on that instead. I shall see.

I agree that it looks more like A3's legs as the front there than it does Broadside's fins (though if I'm honest, it mostly looks like artistic-license missile pods more than anything), but the little bridge-component, wing-shaped parts on the sides with what appear to be Broadside's arms under them, take-off/landing strip down the middle in the exact same way as Broadside, and most notably lack of huge space-boat cockpit are much more Broadside than they are Trion. At best it's an amalgam of the two figures, or they just happened to somehow guess exactly what a lot of TR Broadside's defining features would be; most likely though, I'd posit that they were already working from the Broadside mold (whether we as consumers knew about the figure yet or not).

Siiiiiigh............

I wonder if :TAKARATOMY: or :HASBRO: will ever make a special two-pack containing Ginrai and God Bomber? This would be a great excuse to make a Platinum set or something.

I don't keep up with Takara news too well, but I seem to remember some rumor floating around that there'd be some kind of Ginrai/God Bomber 2-pack (coming with Minerva and Hosehead heads to boot, I think) - of course that's a rumor at most, last I heard.

https://www.seibertron.com/transformers/news/official-images-for-takara-tomy-transformers-legends-lgex-god-ginrai-set-plus-cab-minerva/38316/ definitely not a rumour.


Of course, it just HAD to be a omega-expensive ultra-exclusive set.

Pass...
...
....for now....

Any chance if the other Japanese stores (anime-export) will carry it?

I hadn't read the part about this set being available to japanese residents only...I already have both Ginrai and Godbomber but I was considering selling them to get this set, so I could finaly have a Minerva. I hope Hasbro does their own Minerva...One can only hope..

The only toy of Minerva that exist is the G1 Original. Japanese exclusive. Ultra rare. Insanely expensive. And ugly as a vile duckling.

She's my grail for my fembot collection.

She be really worth it to be made as a deluxe in the TR line.

I have the Aladdin KO version from a few years ago with the Reprolabels sticker set. She is OK but I would really love a modern version of the character to go standing beside my God Ginrai on my shelf :D
