    From the Japanese TF image board. Not sure how his legs would go to get that, but the supermode looks like it was made to go like that!

    I highly, HIGHLY... disagree.

    That really doesn't look very good at all.

    Creative, clever, yes. Appealing? No.

    Ahhh... I think I know how they did it...

    You'd have to flip the side panels down, flip his legs down, rotate it at the waist 180 then flip the legs back up...

    I think...

    I don't know if it's photoshopped, but it IS basically fake. The super head CAN peg into the hole where the wind vane usually goes -- but the legs are simply not designed to fold away and fit into that tiny space.

    The only way I can see to pull it off is if you remove the legs with a screwdriver. In fact, since there's no sign of legs in that shot at ALL, it's safe to assume that's what they did.

    Plus ... there's kind of no point. It's not like it looks any better than the original.

    I wonder if Classics Prime can tow the G1 trailer without it looking ridiculous. I'm going to have to try that.

    Super Jinrai in general is crappy looking without the extra armor. The oversized head looks absurd. All that said, that Prime blends in amazingly well with the old toys. That's a testament to finding the balance between keeping roots and improving design.

    I love God Ginrai, even without the extra bits to make him "god."

    I love Classics Prime.

    Who would have thought putting two things together that I love individually would result in such crap?

    Oh well, Darth Vader on a guitar turned out pretty friggin' ugly too.

    God Ginrai is my favorite G1 toy ever. Actually, it's still the best "Prime" ever produced in my book.

    This Prime is an updated version of the original and like the original he does not need a super mode. He's the original Decepticon ass kicker!!
