    My brother has the Flaming God Ginrai. I have to get this If I ever get PM Prime.

    Yeah, that happened to my G1 Powermaster Prime. I think the peg was too tight as well since I remember it twisted off due to stress.

    Excellent review, Peaugh!

    That said, as G1 fan I think I can objectively say that I have absolutely...

    ...zero appreciation for this parts-forming, randomly-designed piece of schniekie.

    I think the combined form would look cooler with larger wings.

    I feel sorry for any kid that got this without already owning Ginrai/Powermaster Prime.

    That's all the playability I needed as a kid as long as there was combining involved!
    I guess that's what you get when you grow up with Megazords.

    Me too, but I got another later luckily

    yeah, that is the one weak spot on the original, but the reissue is not as bad, I don't think.

    I loved my powermaster optimus prime as a kid. I got the takara reissue with god bomber and that would have been an excellent toy as well when I was younger.

    I like the little touch of showing Overlord at the end. I always thought powermaster optimus prime had no decepticon counterpart when I was younger. Many years later I found out that there was indeed a counterpart, and he's one of my favorite transfomers.

    Holy smokes this thing is a HOT piece of garbage.

    I genuinely feel BAD for my son who got this to compliment his SoC Powermaster Prime. This was supposed to be one of his more special gifts. JFC.

    I hoped it would be a quality product, being official and Takara even. YIKES. You want to know what is going to drive kids away from Transformers toys? SHITE like this, that is what.

    Amen brother. Don't let anyone breathe near it and future all the joints up so they aren't floppy AF and maybe use some rubber bands to keep the arms on. OMG.

    Theres a SoC Power Master Prime? This toy was made in the late eighties and was a experiment to make power up toys for the leaders (which they refined for Victory and Brave toys). Your not gonna be able to buy this toy for your kids now. I've had mine for a few years and nothing's broken. Just got to be careful with it. Like you should be with anything from G1 tbh.

    JFC whatever the other piece of garbage toy that is supposed to combine with that God Awful God Bomber is named that came with the SoC set.
