    Well Ginrai/Optimus only has 4 wheels so we're already off to a pretty poor start. But I'm interested to see where this goes, the only other actual legends PMOP/Super Ginrai that exists (as in one that isn't just a remold of, like, Ultra Magnus or War Within Optimus and only looks right if you squint from 10 feet away) is Maketoys Thunder Manus, who is kind of old and only works if you like your PMOPs to be combiner sized.

    I’m not even familiar with ginrai, but 30 seconds of googling seems to show that it’s accurate… so idk what the problem is?

    Yeah, just looked it up and found out I'm wrong. Boy, am I not a fan of that look.

    Plus, I have to be honest, considering the alt mode that Chromedome got stuck with, I get the feeling that the regular robot mode is gonna be pretty compromised to compensate for super mode. Hopefully I'm wrong, I'd like for Chromedome to just be a small black mark and the rest of their toys to be better.

    OK. I'm skipping Chromedome, but THIS I will probably get. PM Optimus Prime was my favorite version of him back in G1. Loved the toy. Already have Thunder Manus and Fans Hobby Powerbaser, but I would love a more accurate design.

    And after he comes out, I just need to decide if he or Manus gets to be Optimus. The other one can be Ginrai.

    Wow count me in if it’s good. Kfc version is way too pricy in total so I’ll be happy for a small cheap one if it’s that show/toy accurate.

    I got the takara potp remold one with godbomber too but it’s pretty unstable

    Powermaster Optimus Prime was one of my few purchases outside of Action Masters past '86. I might have to pick him.
    Is the jet on top part of the Japanese release? Or is that Brainstorm or one of the Decepticon Headmaster Triple-Changers?

    The jet on top is definitely Brainstorm, the two guns on the nosecone are a giveaway.

    Promising and unexpected!

    He’s supposed to only have 4 wheels. PMOP/Ginrai has always been like that.

    I’m just glad DX9 is getting into making some heavy hitters now. DD and Chromedome are good and all but a fully committed Gibran that’s not Optimus with battle armor or a Magnus redeco is nice to see
