    Pow. Yeah, that's about the price I think we were expecting. Congrats to those who have the disposable income for this. It's a nice looking figure.

    It's out of my range, but I do like that this kind of Masterforce stuff is being made.

    Heck, that's not nearly as expensive as I figured it would be. Still not shelling out for it, or anything, but it's sure nice.

    Is it wrong that I wish there was an equivalent sized Headmaster partner for this to go with? How mindblowingly awesome would that be?

    Yeah, it's probably verboten to discuss alternatives to the site's sponsors, but Hobbysearch also has her for 7480, except you get 224 "points" (where 1 point - 1 yen) to use towards future purchases.

    I'd still rather go with Amiami, but my spidey sense tells me this will end up in the clearance bin either way, if one was inclined to wait a while...

    My biggest complaint? With her transtector backpack thing on, there's no way to move her head -- look at the way her hair has to be situated.

    It's fine. I used amiami.

    And the hair isn't an issue. Her top hair is removable to allow the helmet to be attached it appears. So the upper hair is separate and should allow for the head/ upper hair to rotate independently.

    Everything we've seen of Ginrai seems to come out about 2-3 months later than Minerva, so I'd guess he'll be out in the early fall season.

    Hopefully these do well enough to get more. I'd love to get Giga and Mega, the Autobot Pretenders (suit or casual clothes, preferably able to switch), Darkwings, etc... Hell, even Kicker!

    Giga & Mega would be awesome without a doubt. But I think the figure that would go best with Minerva would be Cancer! They are buddies after all :lol

    It's a good price. Still pricey but at least the product justifys it unlike products like the PE Motobot which is pretty unreasonable.
