    honest question since i didn’t watch the cartoon - when ginrai combines into super ginrai, does his head also get bigger? lol i agree that it looks smaller than ideal when combined, but if they enlarged it, wouldn’t it be too big for ginrai mode?

    They're different heads, like Armada Optimus, they just look super similar cause they're both based on Optimus Prime's head.

    My eyes were not ready for this :bay 

    This is looking awesome. I've wanted a Legends scale version of this dude for ages, and it's great to see that it's not only happening, but it is looking glorious. Can't wait for color.

    Honestly, I thought it looked pretty disappointing at first. But after seeing the bigger head edit, I thought of digibashing it to see if it'd look even better when painted.

    Welp, as long as they make Super Ginrai's head bigger, I'm on board

    Wonder if they are planning to do the Headmaster Juniors in this scale. I would definitely grab them at this scale, but happily skip MP.

    Yes and no.

    These designs (and the two other recent DX9 legends toys) are not up to the standard expected of Magic Square. I don't even know if they have the same designer. These certainly take cues from MST's designer, but if they're his then they're very much not being given the care of other work.

    And the answer is: cause it's not Optimus, but Ginrai's Transtector.^^

    10yrs ago the way this thing looks would have been acceptable but not today. Too much progress has been made as evidenced by other legends companies like Magic Square and New Age and Iron Factory.

    That looks great and really promising but that's not for me. Some details make it not screen accurate for me and that is all I am after. Think about the windows in robot mode for example. I think it's overall more aimed at PMOP fans and that's great because they don't have a lot of options.

    Glad I have almost zero knowledge of this series, so I'm over here thinking it looks pretty cool.

    In colors it looks good. I hope they make the head smaller, it looks more like a human cosplaying as Powermaster Optimus Prime than an actual Transformer with a head of that proportion.

    looks slighter better than their chromedome and perhaps on par with doubledealer. but at this point, that's not saying much. the styling/sculpt and proportions is just too rudimentary for me so think i'm out of DX9-mini in general.
