    Its literally his height nothing CHUG about. In relation to humans Ginrai isnt pictured as massive as Optimus is. Optimus towers over even Bee who would be about 9 ft and change

    Yeah Prime towers over bots UNTIL headmasters, then his height difference is the same as Ginrai.

    I think it's just two different scales season 1-3 and headmasters/masterforce/victory

    I’m confused. In the Figureking magazine it shows Ginrai in front of Super Ginrai, and Ginrai’s head comes up to the bumper on SG’s chest. The photo’s at an angle, so maybe he’s a bit shorter. Using the G1 PMOP trailer reference from a few pages ago, that puts Ginrai’s head at approximately the height of MP-44’s top of the chest. ER Prime, by contrast, comes up to MP-44’s waist, based on the comparison photos from the trainbot review at the beginning of this page. How does that make Ginrai CHUG height if he’s significantly taller than any G1-style CHUG Prime?

    Assuming he is 7" to 8" inches, that's a CHUG Prime. And that's okay, but it is what it is. I look at it as 2 options in one box.

    super ginrai’s thighs are thiccccc compared to his arms. my only assumption is that they’re sized for god bomber mode when a bunch of other stuff are attached to him

    well on some scenes his thighs are a bit short:
    when-do-you-think-they-well-make-powermaster-optimus-prime-v0-95un3euk3n8c1.png

    Though honestly I would prefer if they looked a bit longer and more square like in the first time he becomes super ginrai scene (I might look into remaking the thighs and the sides of the super ginrai chest on my own copy - they look relatively simple to do... need to finish my MP Raiden hips first though) I think the size of his arms actually match with this still here

    The thigh shape also reminds me of this scene with the angular thighs, though also admittedly the thighs here are longer too - I would prefer if the MPG had slightly longer thighs, but I still think he looks amazing as is. His arms also look about the same as the MP here as well

    yea i agree his thighs could be longer, but again, i wonder if they stubbed it out to prevent the god bomber legs from becoming TOO long. will just have to wait for its announcement and see if there’s a reason for all of super ginrai’s undesirable design decisions

    Lol height alone might not make something close enough. Overall proportions/size scream anime scale MP instead of CHUG especially with that comparison to the original trailer that was shown in the magazine shots.

    It seems like in the toon god ginrai's new feet doesn't make him that much larger compared to the toy - I honestly am hoping that god bomber doesn't give him an absurd height boost and massive feet, since inevitably those thighs are going to look extremely small, but I guess we'll just wait and see

    I’m at work, so I don’t have any of my Primes on hand, but how tall is Siege/ER and Classics Prime? Because 8 inches doesn’t seem like CHUG scale at all. MP-44 is 9.2 inches according to Google, and ER Prime is under 7. Why would 8 be CHUG when it’s right in the middle?

    Ginrai is definitely not 7 inches then, again going off the comparisons. He’s minimum 8.

    To be honest if he was 8.5" I would be very happy. That's would be a great compromise height for MP.

    This is definitely one of those releases thst helps if you're actually familiar with the show. The relationship between Sunbow G1 and JPG1 is more akin to the sequel to a movie you liked only to find that part 2 isnt a continuation of thr original story but a whole reboot.
