Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian Cyberpath, we now have an in-hand prototype shot of TakaraTomy's LG35 Ginrai from TFYuki's Twitter - an extensive retool of Hasbro's Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime, itself an extensive retool of Combiner Wars Ultra Magnus. TFYuki also comments in particular on Ginrai's wrist articulation, a feature missing on his Hasbro counterpart. Check out the image below and feel free to compare with our gallery of Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime!

Just picked up Glavatron,Hardohead and Skull. So small the last two. Great looking in person but kind of small when compared to my originals. All I have to wait for next is an eventual Scorponok/Megazarak remake/re-issue.

And something about them, maybe the way the trailer wheels hang off of the ankle, I don't know, but it kinda ruins the fig for me. I will probably still get him, but he may stay in semi mode in my display....

I'm really hoping the feet look better in person...
I think that is the most off putting about the feet, that the trailer separates from them. I know that can't really be fixed, but that is the only issue I have. I still think he's better than my Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime in every way though :lol: :lol: :HEADHURTS:

Yeah the 'feet' look really terrible. The chest area looks improved though. New cab?



As for Hardhead I prefer the Hasbro one. For me, Hardhead just looks better with a mouthplate like my old G1 toy. That's my preference.

I really wish he had the same type of big blocky feet that Titans Return Powermaster Prime has. He'd be a lot better then. Although not good enough for me to spend almost $100.

I wonder if the feet were necessary for their version of God Bomber? I can understand wanting to make them look like the original, but I'm sure they could have made them more solid if they didn't have a dual purpose.

My only other hookup is the hand guns. While they're an improvement over the Hasbro guns I don't understand the shape. To me the should be massive canons, not skinny little laser rifles. And what's with the blue? I'm trying to find a still from the cartoon to see how they look there, but I can't find one to compare.

The most important question I have about Super Ginrai is are the eyes going to be red or blue.

That's a shame. I would have prefered red to match the OG toy but it seems neither Hasbro or Takara wanted to do that. Maybe they'll end up releasing a titan master that can work as red-eyed PM Optimus under the mask.

On both sides of the Pacific, however, PM Optimus and Super Ginrai each had blue eyes in their respective television series.

So I have my eyes on the Legends Slipstream because I like her design and I don't have any female Decepticons. Something I plan to change here soon-ish. I know she's a retool of Windblade though. What are the thoughts and consensus on the figure? Any issues I need to be aware of? The only Takara figure I have otherwise is the Deluxe Transformers Prime/First Edition Megatron and I'm fairly happy with it.

Nice and shiney paint. The new rifles are great and a very nice headsculpt. She has the same standing problem as Windblade. It's possible to get her standing but she can fall over easy if you're not careful. But she's a worthy addition to a seeker she;f.

Alrighty. Thanks!

Honestly I loved the design, it's very neat looking. I just wish it was leader-class, but eh. It works. You know? Mostly that's for scaling reasons. I love the larger figures for TFs.

Only real complaint is the heels, but those are an easy fix. Just pop 'em out and flip 'em around.

Is there a guide of sorts floating around here for that Sigma? Or is it easily done to the point you don't need a guide and you can just fiddle with it on your own?

Just fiddle with it, no disassembly needed.

The Windblade mold is a decent toy but very fiddly and sometimes some parts don't like to stay held together, but it's not terrible.

Though, bear in mind that Legends Slipstream is meant to be the Animated character proper in an upgraded body form, rather than a G1 equivalent version of the Animated character, thus her head has a very Animated-based aesthetic, and her deco has lots of shiny paint apps to match the shininess of the Japanese Animated line.

Ah. I see. Even my TFP Takara/FE Deluxe Megatron is a bit fiddly with the parts staying together. It takes me a minute or two to line it all up, but once they get properly lined up they're good to go. Are the Slipstream and Windblade figures like that then?

Personally, I like the Legends toy more than the TFCC toy and it also appears to be cheaper to get than the TFCC toy is at least. I'm in mind to go for the less expensive way as I am a cheapo. It's a family trait I seemed to have inherited from my dad. We're very frugal. Heh.
