Hmm... ambitious.

It looks like the new feet add a slight increase in height.
I'm still in for this thing, but I hope Prime still works with a Commander Armor.

Balljointed feet are nice for poses and articulation, but I really don't like the prospect of having to remove Henkei Prime's bumper to replace it with the new one, though I understand why you'd need to since the bumper is what keeps their not-Ginrai in place in engine mode.

I like that someone's adding articulation on Classics Prime, but why is everybody making him look like he's got a beer gut? Can't you still turn it around like a normal transformation?

Yay for new feet... :DANCE:

Boo for beer gut... :SICK:

I don't know why he'd be pictured transformed that way. I don't think the bumper looks back, but transformed that way and it's a joke.

Just by the looks of this I think I'd rather use Classics Prime over Henkei. I'd ratehr NOT damage my shiny chrome bumper by trying to remove it.

In the third picture it looks as if Optimus is wearing house shoes, or cyber slippers.

Yeah, , definitely not feeling this, even with the added ankle articulation.

I'm not too worried about it. I have like 4 Henkei Primes (I've been expecting add-on sets like this to come out ever since City Commander/DIA Commander) so I can easily scrifice one for this.

I don't care what it looks like in cab-bot mode, as he'll stay in combined mode with the trailer anyway, and based on the pics/renders I've seen of the combined mode so far, it's far superior to anything else out there that's supposed to be/pay homage to Powermaster Optimus Prime.

So the standalone bot mode can look like junk, the trailer in trailer mode can look like junk, but if combined mode looks awesome (which this one has so far), then that's all that matters, because that's why I'm getting it and that's how it will be permanently displayed.

So hurry up Xovergen and take my frickin' money, cuz I needs me some Powermaster Optimus Prime love :D!

I broke out my Classics Prime and saw the bumper is screwed in. So it doesn't need to be one of those things where you can never go back

But there's a ton of cheap Classics Prime KOs out there. They might actually work with this pretty well if you want it to be Classics style, but don't want to use / don't have an official figure for some of the mods.Since it's supposed to fit G1 and PM Prime I think it'd work.

The bumper really isn't THAT bad. If you look at the serious picture you'll notice that you can't even tell he has it on when he's transformed into robot mode the right way. Granted, it doesn't fold up as nicely into the figure as the official, but if you're going to buy the set I doubt you'd want to keep him in standard bot mode.

And I think modding the bumper is absolutely nessasary in order to add the PM gimmick to a figure that really wasn't eman tfor it.

On the other hand, at the end of the show (Masterforce, was it?) Ginari and all the other Masters became their own bots, didn't they? Do you don't HAVE to do this mod to get something show-accurate. You can leave it out and pretend it's the fully-robotic Ginari at the end of Masterforce.

:BOOM:

:lol:, well, ToyArena had him constantly in stock forever and still reasonably priced so I kept buying them as I had need of them (first just to have one, the second after DIA Commander was released, the third when I got a KO DIA Commander set to make a custom Powermaster Prime from and the fourth just in case something like this came along, which it has :D).

Trailerforce will be mine :)!

So I'm meant to replace that gorgeous chrome bumper with that thing?!?

Yeah, I don't think so.
