    Nice, though I'd rather have seen a repaint of Hi-Q into Nightbeat's headmaster partner. Would have been nice to have a chance to own a figure of Muzzle.

    That'd be an awfully random thing to repaint Hi-Q into.

    No more random than the Minerva repaint, though. And at least then we wouldn't have an exclusive that is 95% the same as the standard release. :lol

    Well, no, I mean, that's not random at all. They're repainting the figure into the same colours her original toy had in America. She was actually released in those colours as a mail-away exclusive in Japan in '88, even. Hi-Q and Muzzle have... like, nothing to do with each other, apart from being "Nebulan men". /: )

    Something is wrong with Minvera's neck.... Oh well, I still want it. I pre-ordered the normal version, I'll be pre-ordering Ginrai as soon as he is up, and now..... Geez, I said I wouldn't buy this version because of the the price but I'm not sure I can resist now.

    She was? Well, that makes a bit more sense then.

    I know that Minerva is a repaint of Nightbeat, and I got that connection. But the original toy didn't have a female headmaster, and I'd rather have a toy of Muzzle, then Minerva in his colors. It's a nice homage, but in the end it's still just Minerva in different colors and not a new character like Hi-Q is. And since these are the only two figures they're presumably making, Muzzle would have to be a repaint of Ginrai.

    Probably shouldn't have called it 'random', though. My mistake.

    How exactly would Muzzle have to be a repaint of Ginrai when Ginrai transforms into an engine block and Muzzle transforms into a head? The armor designs are also different.

    That Hi-Q sure looks angry as hell!
    That is not what I think of when I think of Hi-Q. He seemed like a quite level headed scientist, not a rageaholic in need of anger management. Looks pretty cool though, just unfitting to the character.

    What did Picard ever do to you? :(

    I thought this head was Hi-Q's, not Ginrai's.

    Lex Qthor.

    The Hi-Q head looks nice. I'll preorder Ginrai whenever he goes up and may have to look into picking up this release for the Hi-Q head.

    It's not Ginrai, it's Hi-Q. The toys were the same, but the unarmored character models were completely different.
