    So ginrai died and got turned into victory Leo who can become a power up for starsaber to form victory saber. Think how energon wingsaber could combine with Optimus prime.

    Although not into the Japanese continuities much, or BW Neo generally, let alone Timelines and other stuff, I like to headcanon Ultra Mammoth (given the name, color scheme, etc.) as the revived/reincarnated Ultra Magnus lol.

    He's even nearly identical to Big Convoy, just like G1 Prime's toy and Ultra Magnus' toy are "related" lol. :lol

    I like that. Stuff like that makes me dream up explanations on how that would have happened. Maybe G1 UM had his spark preserved so that he could be rebuilt when newer technology became available. Or maybe he's simply a descendant of UM (I know that's not a possibility but maybe you can somehow show there is some connection).

    Yeah, it's weird, but remember that the whole time Ginrai (human) and Ginrai (robot with mind of human) were running around, looking like Optimus Prime, Optimus Prime was dead. He didn't come back until Zone, where he came back evil, died, and immedately came back again as Star Convoy.

    Man, this one is tearing me apart inside. On one hand, damn, hes looking like a total Powerhouse, which absolutely fits him being a Power up suit. On the other hand, I'm looking for a Masterforce styled one, but in my eyes the only one who could ever deliver that one would be KFC or maybe Takara themselves. Anyone else torn apart on this? Its not like he's a cheap fellow either so i dont know if i should wait or go for the preorder...

    Ordered direct with Fans Hobby as had positive experience previously. This may be my last 3P Masterpiece, got everything I need. Nothing else I see in the pipeline doing it for me. Fingers crossed, will save me a ton :)

    I get where you're coming from since I'm also a huge Masterforce fan, but I came to love what Fans Hobby is doing here (and in general, really). It may not be as svelte as Super Ginrai in the anime, but IMO it nails the vibe with how dynamic it is. Plus, it doesn't hurt that the same company is giving us Overlord!

    I think once this comes out and word gets out how amazing it is, it will start to sell out fast.

    If you are a Masterforce fan, I can totally see this. If you want to go for that animé look, you might end up not fully satisfied, especially with Ginrai (look at PE's hyper animified Jinrai figure for a comparison). Super Ginrai does seem very dynamic, but you're missing that leanness of the cartoon. And honestly, we just started moving into Masterforce with 3P. I think there is a pretty good chance of somebody doing a toon accurate version (though definitely not before Q2 2018).

    Finally in regards to price: well at $200, I would at the very least wait out a couple of reviews and picture galleries.

    For me the kicker is that this company is also doing Overlord (and upscaled/refined it to be an even better fit opposite Super Ginrai (and eventually God Ginrai), so to have the two aesthetically unified, properly scaled, and both from a company that makes extremely solid toys, it's a no-brainer purchase for me personally.

    We have seen MT and KFC tease/reveal MP Masterforce characters, but at this point I wouldn't hold my breath on MT getting them out aaaaany time soon if at all.

    I get that, and I share that sentiment - the Super Ginrai is already looking ridiculously good and the silhouette of God Ginrai looks to up the ante even further, not to mention their Overlord so even the preorder is absolutely a no-brainer - but...I was responding to Victory Force's concerns/gripes regarding source accuracy :)
