Is there actually a preorder for this?
Not yet as far as I can tell, I don't think it's far enough along yet.

The million dollar question - Who that running? If that's like, a base body for a headmaster with no backpack, the poseablity is gettin me hype.
The Headmaster Juniors had a separate helmet, which can be seen in Athena here:
I knew the helmet was a separate bit, I was talking the face itself which looks absent in that other picture you posted! Could just be a lot lower profile than I'd expected.
Edit: Looking at it now, that's what it is! They really got the face small on the headmaster's back.
Every new picture gets me more hyped

so in terms of regular size classes, how big is that minerva relative to thunderclash? deluxe? voyager?
anything with fanshobby is mp….. hahaah
I think she's looking really good. The only thing I'm not quite into is the red headlights... I wish those could have been molded in clear or blue instead. But I guess it's most economical to mold all the clear bits together.
Weirdly, I'm okay with the red windshield. Even if it's not accurate to the original toy, a red windshield has a kind of G1 silliness that I can get behind.
The red windshield is strange, especially considering the A-pillar and lip where it meets the roof are not yet painted. And granted it's a test shot, but right now the fit with the side windows seems to need some adjusting.
Yeah, I'm chalking that gap up to it being a test shot, for now. Hopefully they get that fit working better for the final version.
I have zero attachment to this character but I'm all for a new fembot on the market. Especially a 959.
I seem to remember she's about 6.3''
I know they've stated that before, but I'm wondering if it's 6.3" to the top of her head, or to those car-part shoulders. Sold either way, but while I always assumed that was head-height, I'd love confirmation.
That I do not know. I guess the other thing someone could do is (and this is presuming Thunderclash and Powerbaser are the same height) estimate Minerva's size relative to Thunderclash in the pictures above.
I was kind-of thinking the same thing. Except I don't know how close the powerbaser design is to that one....and also, I don't own their Powermaster Prime to compare to anyway. Maybe someone who owns one can give it a look?
Red pieces are likely just there to show you where the transparent pieces are on the figure.
She's a purchase so far!
