    I have a orginal Powermaster Prime G1.
    I bought a reissue and my son took my old Prime Cab.
    In a recent Ebay auction I won a Reissue C310 and Neblon Prime.
    My son loves prime so I opened up the Sealed Reissue I have.
    Holy Crap, what a nice Robot. The Cab has Diecast in it. I was so suprised because my G1 Powermaster is all plastic. This is my favorite Prime at this time. I'm glad I cracked the seal open on him cause its the shiznit!

    Notice the reissue cab has real windows too on the diecast front, not stickers like the original, it si quite cool, and has always been one of my favorite molds.

    Agreed. I had PM Prime as a kid (still do, as it goes), and he was always one of my favourites. However, the God Ginrai reissue blows him out of the water. Good call on opening that bad boy up!

    I like the reissue version best..I like the metal added, and the chrome too, really puts it over..now if only they left the long smoke stacks in..Perfect. But it has become a nice figure..Originally I kinda hated it.

    God Ginrai is definately alot better than PM Prime. PM Prime was my first OP toy, so I had to buy the reissue when I got the chance. The metal, clear windows.... God Ginrai will probably be one of the only tfs I won't ever sell :thumb

    I have God Ginrai, but I still really want a Powermaster Optimus Prime. that thing was my holy grail as a kid. I know God Ginrai is "better" with the real windows, die-cast, chrome, and retracting fists, but its not the same toy I hunted for every week as a kid.

    Had PM Prime when I was a kid. I was very impressed to get the God Ginrai Reissue with the metal cab, after that even picked up the Nucleon Quest Convoy. All I need is the Fire n Guts Convoy and I should be good. By far the best brick ever!

    One day someone's gonna re-engineer this with elbows, a waist joint and hips. Knees might be a tad harder. And on that day I'll be a very happy bunny.

    Fingers crossed, we might get a Titanium of it someday, in the vein of the Titanium Ultra Magnus - truck-trailer straight to supermode, like he usually seemed to do in the comics.

    I actually saw one on ebay once with that modification done to him. It was great, I was gonna bid but forgot.:( 

    I also just opened up my God Ginrai reissue for the first time and love him.

    If you ratchet his legs apart in more of a V in God Ginrai mode, he looks less like Gene Simmons and more like a heavily-armed death machine.

    Good stuff. That was the first (and only) Prime I had as a kid, I just missed most of the pre-movie stuff.

    Now you need this one-

    I agree; It looked amazing. And it made the full God Ginrai look BEYOND badass.
