Execute me for hearsay, but awesome combined mode aside; I honestly prefer Hasbro's PM OP to this. The feet on Takara's are really starting to kill it for me, the different Titan Master is redundant and just makes the eyes look a little weird inside the helmet... and honestly, I really prefer the updated design on PM OP to the accurate chest on this one. It's just starting to look off.
The arms at least are undoubtedly better on Takara's in every single way (wrist swivels!!), but it's really starting to feel like Godbomber is less an optional accessory to make Ginrai cooler and more a necessity to make it look good in the first place.

I disagree. The chest here is far superior to the cluttered Hasbro one yet I don't like the Godbomber combined mode at all (or the Godbomber figure on it's own... just bleh). The feet I was put off by at first but I'm fine with that now and like the extra height. Should have had red eyes though like the original toy. The cab itself too looks a lot better than Hasbro's attempt.

Also the lil Titans look SO much better when properly coloured. Most of Hasbro's ones look so lazy and crappy like they just didn't care.

Still waiting for mine to get shipped. Shipping got put on hold for the Japanese New Year by Anime Export. Hopefully it will ship tomorrow.

Cannot wait to get it next to Magnus. Already have a special setup ready for him.

Oh yeah, the Titan Master robot itself is just far better. Preferences on head mode aside that's the area Takara's been knocking it out of the park; the Megatron titan master alone makes me want their Galvatron.

If there's one single thing that works against Super Ginrai for me, it's the face, specifically the mouthplate. Doesn't anyone else feel the weirdness of Ginrai having a double mouthplate with the helmet on?

It feels very redundant to me. Cool thing about the helmet on PM OP is that you essentially get two different heads.
I guess they're doing it so Japanese fans and kids can have an Optimus titan master in some capacity, since they're very likely not going to use the Wave 3 Voyager OP.

I think everything looks great about Ginrai. The only weirdness to me is that with the big helmet, he kinda looks like that part at the end of The Black Hole where Reinhardt and Maximillian merge and you see Reinhardt's eyes inside Maximillian.

It's been a little while since I've watched Masterforce, but did he have blue eyes on that show? I ask because Takara usually goes for show accuracy above anything else.

yea, his eyes were blue in the show, or at least on every Masterforce youtube clip i've seen of him. Still, maybe a Red eyed variant Titanmaster down the line would be nice.

Since the eyes are the only part of the Titan Master visible when the helmet is on, any red-eyed character would do.

And I just noticed Condor has a different vehicle configuration than Laserbreak: the tail section is still swung up.

And it doesn't match the Legends stock photo:

Originally, I was in the camp of not liking the feet on Ginrai. However now that I have it in hand, it's really not as bad looking as some of the original photos made it seem. I also like both chest plates equally. The chests, cab fronts, arms, feet, hips, guns, heights and color shades help me to differentiate the two figures as the different characters they are. I think the biggest problem I had with Ginrai was trying to explain to people that it wasn't actually Optimus Prime.

We have some new video reviews for Legends toys. RFC Reviews compares Legends 35 Super Ginrai to Hasbro's Power Master Optimus Prime. Check out how different the arms are!
We also have a Ginrai review from Chuckdawg who also reviews Legends 39 Brainstorm, and compares it to the SDCC's Brainstorm. Let us know if you think these are worth the importing costs or if you are fine with the Hasbro versions.
