    Just wanted to let everyone know that I messaged TFSource about the PC-15 set and they said they are almost 100% certain all pieces in this set WILL fit Powermaster Optimus Prime as well as Ginrai. All of the parts in question(the powermaster robot, the LED head, and the thigh filler pieces) are the same on both models.

    There's no reason it wouldn't work with pmop, but the colors on the leg fillers match super ginrai

    I understand that. Not a huge deal to me.

    They might do a set for both versions. Also they could still do their Godbomber as that was being designed with the Hasbro mold, which Takara's won't work with.

    They could but hasbro is also rumored to do a godbomber of their own, so at this point I'd say a pe godbomber is unlikely

    Curious if the new head will color match Hasbro's, as Takara usually runs their blues a bit darker.

    Really hoping for more news on this ans PE-16. Also, I think I have "Reverse-Field of Dreams- Syndrome" with pre-orders.

    "If you pre-order it, it won't come." When I cancel, stuff arrives.

    Anyone review the set yet? I knows its just four pieces, but i know some people (including me) want to see how it is before purchasing. Just pictures doesn't always fit the deal. I made that mistake before...

    just got mine and took a couple of shots . I dont have pmop though. The head and thigh fits perfectly, you don't have to unscrew the head to insert the battries. Ginrai however is abit flimsy and requires more of a gentle touch when folding him up, not sure if it's the size of it that causes it or just mine but the limbs do pop off if you're not careful. Fortunately enough in engine mode, there's a peg point of shoulder to foot to securely hold him there. That's about it, you might have to fiddle around to find the slotsin the cab to fit him in engine mode. Overall I love it lol.

    oh that's so cool. I'm glad Ginrai's roughly the same size as Legends Ginrai.

    Sort of a part 2 from my prior post , just to show the foot to shoulder connection point . And also where roughly to slot ginrai when in engine mode. You won't see it in the instructions, had to Google and saw it there. Basically you can slot him in any of those slots you can see in the cab, but the first slot seems the most secure to me. And if you view the images from that website they managed to place ginrai on the exterior of the cab ? I've yet to find out what sorcery they used to do that, because I sure can't attach him to the exterior without external help.

    Where? Searching for "perfect effect ginrai/jinrai" didn't yield any results.

    Exterior mounting is only for the NEXT add on kit, which includes a fully transforming cab bot
