    Considering the Takara Ginrai and the price it goes for around my area... I'm going to grab this beast.

    It's hefty (just the way I like it), doesn't look too bad, and comes at a reasonable price (when compared with Takara's).

    Plus I don't think I'll need to spend more money to upgrade parts like the official Ginrai (which makes the figure end up costing more in the long run).

    Is this company (or part of the team) are old members from FPJ? I read somewhere about this, not too sure if it's true.

    Definitely. I only have Flypro but I can clearly see similar stylings as FP's last warbot (Dai-Z) as well as the Lost Exo-Realm line.

    Wow this is sick! How am I just hearing about this figure?

    But that price... $210 is way too steep for me.

    I'm not going to second guess anyone else's budget, but just to make sure you're aware, this figure is HUGE. The inner bot (the Ginrai, if you will) is as big as MP-10. The full combined form is going to be ENORMOUS.

    Holy crap. How much do you spend on ebay, or is there a higher percentage you can get? I see a lot of people mention ebay bucks, but when I registered I only got 1% back, which isn't much.

    Thanks for the info! That definitely helps justify the price point. Unfortunately I don't have a lot of space for figures anymore so I might have to pass but it's a shame cause Powermaster Prime was my very first TF back when I turned 4yrs old and I never got into the titan master one enough to buy it but I'd love a really well done update to my original that I still have somewhere.

    According to bbts he's gonna be 12.6 inches tall. Mp-10 is around 9 something. Granted this guy looks bulky and will have diecast as well.

    Great proportions. I like how blocky he looks lolz. I like how the wheel guards rotate to imitate the original's feet.

    That powermaster does resemble the dia-pilots from LER, doesn't he?

    I'm sure a few people will buy this, but I would bet good money this will tank overall.

    I don't buy my stuff on Ebay until there's a 6%, 8%, or a 10% bonus bucks deal going on. For instance, I bought FT's Omega Supreme while a 10% deal was going on, so I got $36 in Ebay Bucks for that one purchase.

    Ah.. I assume it tells you somewhere when there is a special offer? I'm new to the bucks thing. Never signed up for it since I don't spend thousands on eBay.

    I get e-mails and it shows up on EBay's home page for me.

    The 10% is rare, but 6% and 8% seem to happen two or three times a month usually.


    At least for me it does. :D

    I'm on the fence on it. I kinda like it, but I am not a fan of the truck mode and would rather of had a move Marvel G1 Powermaster Prime. However, I will for sure be getting Double Evil so I might get this just to display with him.

    Gotta disagree with you dude...
    Maybe cos I've got a retailer here selling it for cheaper with free shipping... making this bot a very enticing proposition for me.
