    The published scale charts say that regular Optimus/Convoy is supposed to be 6m tall, while base Ginrai is… 10m. And then Super Ginrai is 15m. And clearly it would appear that they aren’t following that.

    Which frankly I’m glad for. As novel as a “scale-accurate” Super Ginrai would be, I don’t think I want to deal with handling one 2.5x the height of MP-44 for long.

    I kinda like the idea of the Powermaster cab robot mode being a little smaller than regular Optimus anyway while the super does some extra compensating.

    I think it's just the lighting that or they made the thighs out of die-cast (doubt it) because I just don't see the thighs being made hollow not just that but as hollow as cheap gimmick toys on a full masterpiece and have a hard time believing would even hold up that well.

    Wait, what size is this figure going to be? We know the size already? I must have missed it.

    There’s some images posted earlier in the thread with size info. Assuming they’re reasonably accurate, base Ginrai is going to be around 200mm tall, while the full truck and trailer is about 400mm long.

    Yes, I'm glad that they have paid attention to the scale for both the bot-mode and alt-mode.

    And with MP-60 / MPG-09, we can finally put an end to the discussion of whether MP and MPG are supposed to be the same scale. Takara has mentioned this clearly when MPG-01 was released, but it's only in Japanese:

    I wonder how quickly the KO will come out. The KO companies have been really quick recently.

    Core bot most likely be KO'd There is yet to be a KO of MP44's Trailer. So guessing no trailer too for this one.

    Nobody has done a Ginrai with a fleshtone face before. If that’s true, Takara has that going for them, at least.

    It seems to me that there is a "lid" on the inside of the thigh which is not present in all pictures. There is no way the thigh could be solid plastic, it's a box made with two halves.

    Not “nobody,” but it was over 10 years ago and didn’t transform, so does he even count??

    I kinda forgot about this thing. I guess I was only thinking about Powermaster-sized figures.

    Got to say I’m still considering it.

    I don’t have any real attachment to the Show but Ginrai is a leader who doesn’t even carry the matrix from what I know, plus has red eyes? It’s like if Magnus actually got to lead lol.

    No seriously, I don’t think I’ll go with the MPG, but if I can get a pre order I’ll get Ginrai.

    But Magnus wasn't a Japanese trucker with awesome Godmaster Chokon Power that makes the Matrix blush!

    Fair point, Ginrai does seem way too hot blooded to compare him to my boi lol.

    My point being I like the cut of his jib lol.

    That is, in fact how most enclosed TF limbs are made, yes.

    But it is present in all the pictures.
