    Thank you again! Saw your initial reply changed after I replied... or I'm really tired and just didn't see all of it :p :D :oops: 

    Regardless, thank you for all the information :)

    I am thinking of making a PDF for this figure along with MPG-10 as soon as we have more info. Would people be interested?

    It would be all the information and pics we have before release of both MPG-09 and MPG-10 and MP-60 if these are of some interest for both as well as info and fixes, customs or enhancements that can be applied after release. Anything really that can be useful. I have done that before for the KO of MP-44 (KO MP-44 guide.pdf) and I would really like to make it for that figure.

    So far I used works or translations of @DarkRed401 , @Ratchet2007 , @Bubblegunner , @aniline , @animetal @Zodiac1968340 , @Nova Maximus , so if you don't want me to use it, please tell me! But if any of you want to participate feel free to share! I will make it accessible for anyone who wants it!

    Looks to me like they’re directly attached to the body and simply swivel up for transformation. That’s why the orientation of the shoulders is different from the original toy.

    On the original toy they folded a full 180 degrees together with the blue panel they’re attached to. On the MPG they only rotate 90 degrees, so the shoulders face forward towards the cab instead of inwards towards each other. The blue panels on the MPG seem to be attached to the rest of the panels that fold up on his legs.

    I own the original toy so I see how the arms are attached to it and I think I see what you mean. Thanks.

    that little detail completely sold me out on buying MPG-09, even though it's a character I don't really care of, I can appreciate the work put into this release and expect it to be great !

    Hey I know this is way off topic as it's related to fan edits of Masterforce but there is a fan effort that has restarted. It's pretty well done!

    If you are interested they have a patreon. I threw like $5. Maybe we can get a nice fan edit of masterforce and actually get that sweet sweet Powermaster Prime action :) . He is already in the outro.

    Edit: I figured I promote it on my signature :)

    I mean, there is a whole retcon that Wheeljack is his future self and all that that JG1 did because they somehow manage to keep only certain things from making sense and not others lol

    Continuity in Japanese media tends to be a lot looser to begin with. Like with Toei's own Kamen Rider series, they started out trying to connect the shows but usually just kept the popular elements for cameos or team ups. Then you get things like Kamen Rider Black being disconnected from the prior Showa-era series only to get kinda shuffled back in for its own sequel. It's the reason this beautiful moment happened in Saban's Masked Rider.



    They skipped over the actual Riderman character, who famously died in his own series only to come back for team ups with no explanation. Wheeljack getting better in some print only material seems tame by comparison.

    God this clip is so hard for me to watch :lol 

    They get all but Ichigo and ZX's names wrong and the clip straight up skips Nigo and Riderman.

    I was the first one who said the red parts were shoulder attachments, and anyway that was first mentioned in the list of parts anyway, not animetal (seeing as you read through the whole thread I'm sure you'll remember that :wink: ). Though honestly I don't think anyone needs to be named in the document at all, you should refer to primary sources where possible.
    The black background photos released on TT's website were different, as they showed the truck mode with the arms oriented outwards (confirming that it will be possible to attach the shoulder weapons there in vehicle mode).

    If you can find your initial post that would be helpful to correct the document. It is important to me that people who first shared get quoted.

    EDIT: found it: MP-60 Ginrai / MPG-09 Super Ginrai

    The only news we got regarding its size was this screenshot! So what you posted is way more precise!

    Thank you so much, that is really nice. I already have 70 pages, so that may end in many volumes :D
