Found these at Futaba
By the way should this be in the 3rd party news or not?
As expensive as this is sure to be, who is going to buy a Nightbeat repaint of Minerva? They all look nice, though. Minus the creepy angry man head that comes with her.
is it bad i want the nightbeat repaint as well? god minerva looks good, same with ginrai
Well, they released Nightbeat in Japan as Minerva Nightbeat Version or something like that. So it's based on a real "Minerva" toy.
the Hi-Q head scares me. Since it's pictured on Minerva's display card, and at her feet, I keep picturing it on her body.
And he's drastically different looking than the US Hi-Q. Looks like an egg-headed meanie.
And now that she's in color, I want a shot of Minerva from behi-- uh, I mean I want a shot of the Headmaster face on her back. Phrasing.
Ginrai looks ace. Glad to see his helmet comes off too.
Minerva is all kinds of awesome. The Nightbeat edition is cool too. Are we actually getting that alternate head for it styled off G1 US Nightbeat's Headmaster Partner?
Does Ginrai come with his comb?
That's what I thought it was for at first. I don't have a mental picture of Nightbeat's Headmaster partner's head.
Really neat that they would give us a Hi-Q head. Is it coming with Minerva NB? That'd be a cruel way to encourage people to buy the repaint just for the alt head.
CM's is planning to have the special version to be the Wonfest 2012 Summer exclusive release.
Nice. What would be truly awesome is CM's Corp doing Metalhawk's pretender shell in this style.
Oh dear god yes. That would be amazing. Maybe if these do well they'll do some Pretenders.
Oh wow, those Nightbeat colors are an awesome surprise.
What's the Angry man with Breasts gig about ?
It's Hi-Q, and he's actually on Ginrai's body (and his helmet). I don't know why they put his picture on Minerva's box. It confused me, too, at first.
But yeah, apparently Japanese G1 continuity Hi-Q isn't a kindly looking old man as in US continuity.
Actually, I think it belongs here, because although it's not Takara, I think I'd read this was officially licensed.
Nope, this is an official product.
Those are cool now that I know who they are.
those are nice! too bad they dont turn into Ginrai and Minerva's respective power-up mode of a head master robot head and god master engine. oh well. :/
Looks better than I thought it would coming from CM's Corp. They usually botch the facesculpts up something awful.
