    The red eyes are on an entirely separate head that gets swapped out.

    MPG Super Ginrai has 3 super mode heads - anime style A, anime style B and toy style (red eyes).

    Okay that makes sense I assumed the two heads in the accessories were the only heads not considering it had a 3rd.

    Oof. I LOVE the "combined super mode" look of this. I forget the actual names of the different versions so forgive me.

    I think the KFC version wins for the Ginrai cab (MP10 ish size) and combined mode integration being all at current MP figure scale, but if you want something which just works and is probably closer to the anime scale, this TT version is probably the way to go.

    I could see myself buying the super set with cab and trailer for combined mode, and then the KFC Ginrai cab to display separately, and selling my KFC trailer + 3d print Ginrai cab to fund it.

    Depending on price I might take that KFC trailer+3D block off your hands if you go down that road.

    Edit: and to be clear, Ginrai is the core robot mode. Super Ginrai is the core robot combined with the trailer. God Ginrai will be the eventual core robot combined with the trailer...combined with another trailer. ;)

    The bot mode scale discussion is weird, to anybody that's watched any Gundam. There is no uniform height over different series.

    Just like on the G1 figure. Guess they’re more decorative rather than functional.

    PMOP was the ONLY Optimus I had as a kid. I still can't believe Dad actually let me get him. I still have the thing too. My resolve against getting this MP version is weakening...

    I still have mine but he was VERY played with. Every gun peg is snapped off in a hole, all the stickers are pretty much worn away. All memories tho

    On a sidenote as we humans can NEVER be satisfied, this early mockup of PMOP, has really interesting more proportional designs where the front cab did not look to extend too far out (he actually has a foot), telescopic fists and looks like his frontipiece art. This never showed up in the JP Generations mook.

    Will this proto ever see the light?

    It's tempting...no doubt. And since I have no interest in the Godbomber doohickey, I don't have to worry about how they're gonna release that.

    The only thing that's gone wrong with mine (aside from some sticker wear and some yellowing) is a cracked thigh in super mode. I transformed him earlier this year, and the hip joints had gotten so tight that the thigh couldn't take the stress and it just cracked. I was able to glue it good as new...but still sucks. Everything got oiled after that!

    Funny enough I was considering doing the same. Getting MPG9 and KFC's core bot as well. Don't know if I will though, because the core bot at Ironhide/Seeker height is close enough in height.

    Yeah, I really want the KFC for the core bot but unless I find a good deal I'm fine without the trailer. I have Power Baser and most likely if/when to display would be in vehicle mode. TT Ginrai would be in Super Mode and will likely be the easiest of the three to get him in that mode.

    Yeah, plus Super Ginrai will have that fun and fluid modern MP articulation. Powerbaser doesn't have it, and I don't know about KFC.

    For me, it's that he looks good next to other MPs, in super mode, which it looks like he will. A seems like he wil look good with most MPs in core mode as well.

    After this, if we are lucky, we'll see MP Overlord for a truly great Gattai representation.

    I threw down for 2 of the super Ginrai. One from Pulse and one from BBTS.
