Fellow Seibertronians, user Professor Smooth has shared with us pictures of the upcoming Takara Tomy Transformers Legends Ginrai! This leader-sized figure is an extensive retool of the already-released Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime, with a look much more resembling that of the toy from 1988. This reveal shows us colour pictures of the Vehicle and Robot Mode from the front and back, a couple development pictures and a comparison with his Hasbro counterpart; but leaves out the Base Mode for now. Take a look at the pictures below!

Super Ginrai looks AMAZING!!!

Those feet might be due to a forthcoming Godbomber upgrade meant to attach to those feet to give him his God Ginrai boots.

HOLY SMOKING COW!!! That comic's set during the same year as the Grand Galvatron and Lynxmaster comics, ten years after The Headmasters cartoon, featuring characters from Masterforce alongside characters from The Headmasters, with little Headmaster Scorponok in his BlackZarak colors that were never seen in the show.

And it looks like we see how everyone got their Legends bodies, and how the non-Headmaster characters became Headmasters.

Small detail: Fort Max has the Master Sword in one panel. Given that Takara hasn't shown that Legends Max has it (which it probably definitely will), I thought it was notable.

...speaking of which, what the SHIZZLESNIT is taking them so long to show that off?

Yeah, dont get the feet either. Not a fan. But it is cool how this is pretty much its own major retool of the already exsting retool. I really like that cab.

Ok so the next time someone asks if it will be shown in the fiction or if any fiction covers non headmasters being headmasters, there is this.

Looks cool. I don't think I'll be getting Ginrai but that is an impressive retool. Besides the ankle tilts my favorite part of this figure is probably the 5 mm fists replacing the loose finger hands on Magnus and Powermaster Prime.

Looking at it a bit more, I think it's actually my favourite base mode so far for one particular reason: the cab's left untouched and on the ground.
It's sort of like Ginrai drove up and unfolded his trailer for a quick command base, sort of like how other versions of Optimus like the Armada guy would do so. I like it.

I'm not sure that a response to a reasonable question is really the occasion for a mic drop.

This is probably due to the original toy having the cab not involved in the base mode.

Ginrai looks great (do the feet rotate around, though? They look like they're supposed to go horizontal, not vertical), but what I'm really digging is that wee Tarantulas with a labcoat and tie. How much do I have to pay someone to get a figure/plushie of that?
