    I'm looking to touch up the silver on the PC-15 LED heads' faceplate and some other details on Jinrai Prime, but I have no experience with paint pens. Could someone tell me if this product will match the silver, and if not what product would?

    Krylon Leafing Pen, Silver:

    Edit: After reading previous threads, would this be a better option?

    Gundam Silver Marker:

    Thank you for your time.

    I recommend the Gundam markers, if you want to use a pen. Personally, I recommend using model paints and a brush, such as "Mr Hobby/Color/Metal" (in Japan) or Citadel acrylic paints (in the UK). Be aware that most silver paints are rather thin, so several thin coats are recommended to get a nice opaque finish.

    Anyway, my Jinrai Prime arrived today. Maybe I over ordered? ;)

    Honestly best thing you could do is go to a hobby store like hobby town USA if you have one near by. Or some comic shops and search for either tamiya or citadel acrylic paints.

    They come in small jars and are easy to clean up after being mostly water based. And easy to correct mistakes. The place you buy the paints from should have brushes too. Get organic hair if you can it's easier to use.

    And when it come to painting thinner out your paints a little and paint in layers. Letting each coat dry before adding another.

    Markers can be very unforgiving. The nibs are stiff and have no give. So if you need to paint a tight corner its gonna mash against places you don't want painted. And you need solvents to clean up after them which can eat through plastic.

    Ginrai, meet Jinrai.

    Ironically, Jinrai is VERY light; almost KO-light. The KO feels heavy and "official"...

    Let's see ... Depends on how many versions you want on display at once ...
    Hasbro PMOP
    Takara Super Ginrai
    Takara Super Ginrai with Godbomber
    Takara gift set God Ginrai
    Hasbro Magnus Prime
    Hasbro Magnus Prime with Godbomber
    Jinrai Prime stand-alone

    Yeah, you over-ordered. The most you'd need, barring backups, is 7. :p 

    (Unless you want to do truck modes as well. Then you're short by two.)

    Cheers. I just ordered them all to get the extra cardboard box with the logo and name on the sides. I plan on giving some away, cutting some up for parts and giving one to the "will it blend/microwave/crush" YouTube channels...

    Since I will never use the powermaster feature, I put an attachment on the back of his grill so he can hold his sword

    Anyone tried using him on Ultra Magnus? if so, can his default chest piece still close? I pre-ordered the white version, but I don't really like how the chest piece that comes with it looks like.

    Yes, and no, the default chest piece won't close.

    This was asked over in the PC-17 thread. I had heard it worked, but can we get confirmation? Can Minimus Ambus fit inside the cab when in Super Jinrai mode? It seems that there should be plenty of room, even if it's an awkward fit.

    Perfect effect are releasing a set that includes a larger, more stable to hold sword, wing extensions and black G1-inspired laser rifles.

    Repainted the windows to darker metallic blue, added Reprolabel Autobot symbol, third party KO Ginrai guns and painted his thighs silver.

    Gave his G1 gun to pretender Optimus and loaned him Targetmaster Hi-Q. Unfortunately, the handle is too shallow for the PE Jinrai to hold...


    Will add painted details to his alt mode tomorrow.

    So, who's going to be the first to take a pic of TFC Poseidon trying to crush Jinrai Prime with his foot?
    That'd look sick.

    I've done most of the detailing on his cab mode. I've added silver windscreen wipers, missing silver paint from the sides of his front bumper, small faction symbols to his cab (I know they are not authentic, but I felt he was naked without them), red paint on the blue part on the tap of the cab, and metallic yellow lights on the top of the cab's front, over the windows.
