Just saw pics of this. Too bad it’s not Legends scale or it would be an immediate purchase.
I\'m in on a ginri
I kinda want this...
Oh god, this guy looks amazing!! I like the idea of the black armor and now this god armor. It\'s stunning and we need more armors for this guy. Like an Armada themed armor, or a Energon themed armor. Just, keep adding to this guy, I love it.
Looks awesome, very dynamic.
I like anything Jinrai, so I'm definitely interested.
not sure I need to own the base mold, though. it didn't feel great in hand (the cab I mean, I don't know how the remolded set with a trailer feels)
Not that I hate it but I don\'t think this is as extensive a retool as the post implies. Looking at my Jetforce vs this, the only parts that appear to be different are the guns, engines and wings. The shoulders, boots, gauntlets, and chest all appear identical in terms of the mold. I think it\'s just deceptive that the new chest is almost solid silver so it obscures the fact that he still has the mini truck doors and such.
Whats the point of this figure ? They already did a perfect set to fix the Hasbro version to include the inner robot. Why cant 3rd parties stop competing with each other (and Hasbro) and do what got them started in the first place ? Fill some damn spaces. Hasbro is doing every character these days, even powerdashers...yes freakin powerdashers. Make a character that hasnt been made already. Make me want to buy a 3rd party figure again ? Cmon guys, if MMC can do it with DJD the rest of you can too !
I just want Perfect Effect PC-16. Please reissue.
In all fairness, the add-on kits to Ginrai were... uh. Well, okay, they're not the best. Yeah he LOOKS a lot better, but he's about as poseable as a grandmother suffering from leprosy and osteoperosis. He doesn't have ankle tilts. He has mid calf tilts. All told, he's close to a plastic junkyard and is best posed and forgotten.
That said, I'm not really blown away by this thing either because the "jetwing prime" thing isn't my bag. Why there are nth iterations of a flying armor Prime I have no idea. At least give the armor the stupid Godbomber robot mode or something.
Could they just release the extra guns for those of us content with Jetpower?
Glad I didn't get the last version -- THIS is the one I'll be getting
Looks amazing. Considering the base bot PC-16 is one of the best deluxe Optimus figures ever made, this should be phenomenal.
I do wish it has the option to swap to their Ginrai version of the chest. I liked that better than the new one.
I'm actually a bit angry about this. It's obvious they knew this would detract from the movie based one. Why else reveal it right after everyone already bought it? I still like that version, but I absolutely would have waited to get this one, instead.
It\'s not a new chest, in either robot or super mode.
I can see why people would be excited, but personally I\'m happy with the G2/ROTF version, given I already have it.
...i don’t know, man: between perfect effect’s own upgrades to titans return ginrai on the CHUG side of things and fanshobby’s chunkalicious take at the masterpiece scale, i think i’m all ginraied-out...
...this alternative take is interesting, but i don’t feel interested and i imagine a lot of the market are in a similar place, especially since maketoys already have a pretty well-made creative reinterpretation out there to buy...
A third version as Nova Prime would probably work pretty well. In fact, looking at this...shocked if Hasbro doesn't have something similar in mind for a PMOP/Godbomber homage.
Seconded. I got the Magnus version via the KBB release earlier this year, and I'd love one to complete my TR Prime.
As for this new set. It looks fantastic, but I imagine it's going to quite out of my price range!
