The new facesculpt on Brainstorm looks so crisp and clear. A sharp-looking retool, if I do say so myself.

Sometimes when I see a repaint/retool of a figure from Takara Tomy, I have this "Oh my gosh that is a million times better!" reaction. This, not so much. Now the difference between the TItans return Blaster and Takara/Tomy Legends Blaster are much more drastic than this.

In general that's happening a lot with the Titans Return figures. A few exceptions to the rule like Blurr aside, Takara's takes are either barely different; or are only drastically different due to representing a different version of the character rather than just being better - ie Takara's Brainstorm is very different to SDCC Brainstorm, but you can't really say one's better than the other when one's a very good representation of Headmasters Brainstorm and the other is a very good representation of MTMTE Brainstorm.

Being a stoopid carbon based bag of flesh who just isn't satisfied ( I did managed to keep Twincast from popping out insistently by careful angling 45 degrees with his neck groove to the neck clamp)I would have preferred if Broadcast had the black feet of TR Blaster.

I'm 50%/50% on his face being unpainted as the TR Blaster silver paint apps aren't that nicely applied.

Blaster to Broadcast: Different paint apps and decal placements. Different feet

Brainstorm to Brainstorm: Different Headmaster and paint apps plus extra vehicle/weapon. (Not drastic?) :???:

still think the fact they didn't include his iconic handgun is a bit of a let down (besides other issues I might have). Takara seem to have tried to address the issue with the silver painted muzzle but it's still far away... at least there's the shoulder cannon.

Another shoulder cannon would have had broken the bank for Takara...major bummer!

Same, Ginrai shipped yesterday from AE and Inferno is still somewhere on the way. Was expecting him for Christmas, but oh well.

Alfes2010 has the first blog up for LG35 Super Ginrai, displaying the Vehicle and Zone (base) modes:

Transformers Legends LG35 Super Ginrai: Vehicle Mode & Zone Mode

Parts of the accompanying comic are included (with a rough Google Translation) and a certain enemy makes its debut (HINT: It's not Overlord). Don't try everything he's attempted, especially fitting Goshooter inside the trailer!

So it IS Ginrai! The human Ginrai! Whatever happened to the sentient transtector post SGMF!

Spoiler: in the Victory anime it followed the age old tradition of Optimus Prime. He was then reformatted into a plot device. ;)

He's with his team in the G Nebula 89, as we saw in the Shockwave & Cancer Prologue comic.

Now I want to know what happened to the sentient transtector Ginrai then? Did he get bombarded by the blackball bomb too? Why didn't this "Ginrai" show up in Victory? Need need need trivia update 8-}

In Victory, GG (Godginrai) also wielded a sword.


Did it have some epic name? I'm kinda surprised it wasn't included with the God Ginrai reissue or the candy toy

The Transformers Generations 2017 book says that Godbomber's Headmaster is not based on anything preexisting. It's a new design.

And according to Figure King #227, Godbomber is fully transformable from trailer mode to robot mode and back without any partsforming involved (minus the Headmaster, of course). Only when he becomes armor for Ginrai does he need some parts to be removed, but not between his vehicle and robot modes. 8-) :APPLAUSE:


Meaning as compared to the original that required partsforming for both modes, it's only the power up that requires it. That's already a given based on the hinges seen in the hobbymag images. Seems to be following what the "original" Godbomber design intended but was eventually scraped.


Man that extra rifle looks cool. Sorta like the rifle from Ultra Magnus that PM Optimus Prime uses. Hopefully I'll have mine soon.
