Fellow Seibertronians Cyberpath, Logan 79 and Fenrir 72 have all helped us find the pictures we need for this news article providing you the best images of Takara Tranformers LG-35 Super Ginrai, Takara's version of Powermaster Optimus Prime.

We have stock images from Dengeki Hobby, some grey scale images from Wonderfest Summer 2016 and even comparisons to the Hasbro release.

There is a lot of retooling with the Takara version to the point where the base mode has a totally different look. The most obvious difference in vehicle mode is the cab while in robot mode it is the chest and feet. Speaking of the feet, while they may look off they are actually transformed correctly. It is meant to convey the look of the G1 toy. However, what is off is that those feet extend below the trailer panels that usually reach all the way down the leg in the toy and in the show. Let us know if you preffer this to the Hasbro version or if the Takara version is worth the import premium which has importers asking 95$ for him.

One last thing of note, in the Dengeki article, he is referred to as LG35 Thunderclap.

UPDATE: A new 6 hour video from Dengeki Hobby reveals the titan master head of LG35 Super Ginrai, which had yet to be revealed. It is a miniature Optimus Prime head unlike the Orion Pax homage the Hasbro version sports. Plus they compared the two versions side by side.

But are they 90$ cooler?

I think they look bad and thats because the trailer panels dont extend down. It would look better if they did. But as it is, it just looks like Optimus is standing on boxes, like those idiots at halloween who think they are witty with their little people costumes.

Thunderclap huh? Is that foreshadowing a thunderclash repaint?

Please say yes.

That Optimus headmaster looks... pretty bad. Good thing there's a helmet; I'd pretty much just have the headmaster transformed all the time because GINRAI

The feet feel fine to me tbh.

:michaelbay: THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR! :michaelbay:

As soon that the preorders are up, I shall preorder it with the power of a thousands suns!

:-?

Still, Hasbro's Powermaster version is SO different, it may be worth owning.... But only at the 30$CAN sale.

They're up in most online shops. $90 US though. That's way too steep for me sadly for a toy

I think I'll get both, Powermaster Optimus Prime is my favorite version of Optimus Prime.

I already own:
2 original US versions.
The Black Japanese TRU exclusive Super Convoy.
An original 100% complete MITB of God Ginrai.
The Japanese reissue of God Ginrai.
The Hasbro reissue of God Ginrai as Powermaster Optimus Prime with Apex Armor.

So what's two more?

If anyone in the UK is interested in it; Kapow have reduced it's pre-order price right off the bat to that of just above a leader-class.

That little Optimus Prime headmaster is pretty cute. Too bad it's not sold separately. That and Hasbro's Cerebros.

Remember; we will be getting an Optimus Headmaster from the upcoming Voyager anyway.

It really is amazing the extra effort put into Super Ginrai. And I'm even being swayed to Takara's Galvatron!! What the heck.

The feet on Super Ginrai look horrible

This is one that really is better looking than the Hasbro version. However, it's not twice the price better to me and I don't even have the TR version yet. I can get Blaster and PMOP for the price of this guy.

I'm getting Legends Blurr and Astrotrain and that's it so far. Mainly because I stupidly didn't preorder Scourge and Galvatron and now I regret it. I still want the TR version of each but I wanted the Legends versions as well. I also want the Legends deluxes that come with with little vehicles but the prices on those are a little higher than I'm comfortable with. I wish Takara would just release those separately.

Oh. My. God.

So fucking sold. Seriously, this is amazing. I'll gladly pay 100 bucks for him. Screw you Hasbro, you cost cutting bastards.
