    I splitted my old thread in two parts, so I can attach the pictures properly (before were just links).

    It's about some bootleg Kabaya model kits. I assembled and painted them.
    They are good, but in very cheap plastic that it's a pain to paint.

    Here there is Super Ginrai (or Optimus Prime Powermaster), he can transform, combine with the trailer and also has base mode. Fantastic, just the powermaster pilot (Ginrai or Hi-Q, whatever) is just a non transforming piece of plastic that can be attached to the robot.

    Nemesis Prime is another Ginrai, but without trailer. I decided to paint him nemesisish :)

    He has to be smaller than WST Ravage, so whilst it might be possible, the severity of the task you're inquiring about is ridiculous.

    Yes, he is about 8mm tall, even smaller than Hydra & Buster, the godmaster pilots of my other kabaya kit. And they transform, but Ginrai/Hi-Q is too small for that.
