    Here are model sheet comparison pictures from the MPG Ginrai thread. The combined mode for the Marvel comics design came from concept art. The cab portion had an altered classic Optimus body in "The Cosmic Carnival."

    Is this the only place where there are robot-mode pictures in this thread? I see none anywhere else.

    I agree a bigger head could fix a lot of the issues, plus it will look even smaller when you add god bomber as armor

    He is okay, Ginrai needs a neck but the combined Super Ginrai looks pretty good.

    I do have my issues with how this looks, but they are less significant than the backpack visible from the front by his stomach on MP-60.

    I'll repost them, let's see if it works for you.

    That was my first thought too. I understand peoples concerns about the lack of neck or, more importantly, the arm proportions. But otherwise, I think this looks significantly better than the upcoming masterpiece version. Significantly. Hopefully between now and this release they can add maybe an additional joint to the arm transformation to allow them to get a bit longer. For either robot mode.

    If anyone knows how to get this in front of the designer before things are finalized that’d be great! Imagine it might be a storage limitation though.

    Otherwise door’s wide open for a 3d print helmet to toss over.

    Regardless I’m stoked on this as the MP version with the giant arms sticking up in alt mode on the trailer was very disappointing. Just so lazy.

    My biggest complaint is definitely the tiny heads. I think it’s a dealbreaker for me…

    Won't a Super Ginrai look out of place? :)

    I'm sure a Super Ginrai would look out of place in a PMOP collection. But this DX9 Powermaster Prime should look fine.:D

    Are they making one of those, too? Cool. It'll go nicely with their Doubledealer... :)

    I really need to learn how to watermark my pictures :p 

    On topic - I think this looks great, especially given the size. Like @Potchez said, I'm not sure anything will dethrone MT's take on the likeness (at least for me) but this does look good.

    While it looks a bit rough, a lot of that can be chalked up to being still a prototype with the final version looking better, and if it had like the marvel head I think it'd be basically exactly what I'd want look wise from PMOP as I'm not really a fan of the Masterforce Ginrai look with the weird midriff and the truck cab looking like a cube just slapped on or even the cab bot with the Rob Liefeld proportions.
    Could see myself getting this as a one-off though I'd really prefer an upcale that fits with CHUG more.
