    Having just handled Power Baser (well, Machine Eagle with Black God Armor) last night, I definitely wouldn’t mind a more manageable size. Especially if Godbomber is still coming I don’t want another massive, unwieldy toys that feels like it barely supports itself.

    They likely have a lot of stuff in that pipeline, but I suppose they all got sidetracked when they decided they wanted to do Powermaster Prime/Ginrai for the anniversary.

    According to rumors 61 is BW and 62 and 63 are something the guy wished he could talk about. Don't think we'll see Gavaltron with God Ginrai announced , but anything is possible.

    Only thing that worries me right now is that trailer and Super Mode...because from them preliminary pics, those are lookin' uglier than the XTB offering. The core robot, however, ehhh, Ginrai's design was already pretty wonky, so this is true to form with that. Therefore, it's fine. Sucks that fans who want a toy themed Super Ginrai will have to get both MP60 & MPG9 and stickerize the trailer. That part's lame as all hell. :p :p :p 

    The bigger question: if the Trainbots were MPG1-6, and the presumed Raiden box set is MPG7, but Super Ginrai is MPG9...what the bloody hell is MPG8??:eek: :eek: :eek:

    That's a good point too. I think if the figure is solid and feels worth the $300 I'm game.

    MPG-7 and MPG-8 were Ginou and Yamabuki, Doctor Yellow retools of Shouki and Yukikaze, respectively.

    I guess for fans who care about scale and size, we all have different standards. For me, it’s the alt-mode, especially those based on earth vehicles. I can never accept mass shifting during transformation. (If mass shifting is possible during transformation, then they should be able to easily change size in bot-mode as well.)

    The problem with my approach is that I can never put a MP F-15 starscream next to carbots unless they are core class :D 

    Of course, this is just me, someone whose main collection are car models. We all have our own preference when it comes to choosing what to collect or not, and that’s the fun part of the Transformers.

    Wait, what, Takara and Hasbro aren’t putting guns to our heads to buy every new release? :eek:

    Can't wait to see how massive he is in Super Ginrai, if the cab size is anything to go by.

    I’ve had MP Mirage and Jazz for ages. I’m fine with Takara making these more obscure and interesting figures.

    Not like it matters much to me , but seeing the up close high AI res images , it does seem that the inside thigh panel on Ginria is hollow . It seems like it folds either down or away when in super mode . Odd to say the least & maybe it’s just due to distortion or being chromed , but I’m seeing how others may think this , for now , it’s just a big ol wait & see .

    While higher res images might help, not really feeling the proportions of the super mode. Obviously it's going for show accuracy with Super Ginrai, as to be expected from a japanese company catering to the japanese market of course they'd go with that version, but I'm more into the Marvel/Boxart squatter PMOP proportions.
