    i like the blue undies, *magnamaster's head colors and the window colors seem darker on the hasbro version!

    * = is the titanmaster still the apex mold from TR PMOP or has the new face too?

    Wow, how'd I miss this? Good thing I already decided I didn't need Magnus Prime.

    So glad to have pre-ordered this set when it was available on BBTS. Even though Magnus Prime is a repaint of Ginrai, it's cheaper and looks better than PMOP. Can't wait for this set to be shipped!

    I know what the G1 toy looks like. That doesn't stop it from looking awful.

    Welp; I'm satisfied. The only molding difference is using the original cab, which I'm changing out with Perfect Effect's upgrades. If that set had better not nerf Godbomber's connectivity.

    You asked for "cartoon-accurate," so I'm wondering what cartoon details you find are missing (that the G1 toy apparently didn't have, either). You want him to have a yellow face?

    Personally, I vastly prefer his face remain unpainted if that's what we're talking about.

    Yes, his yellow face. Because it's an improvement from a mushy unpainted white face that I can barely make out. Hopefully they also retool it into a visored face because those eyes look way too small compared to the G1 toy and the CG render.

    :(  I was wondering about that and assumed it was overseas and because of the low Takara tf prices. I haven't ordered from them before. I was planning on getting a Super Ginrai and Godbomber from them when they restocked. This was before the whole Magnus Prime set thing though.

    I greatly prefer the toy look to their scant seconds of screen time in one episode.

    Damn; I like them both. That said, I love that I live in a time that the only problems I'm having is determining which shade of grey I prefer on those figures.

    Going to wait until SDCC for any potential announcements but it's good to know that using Takara Godbomber is a viable option.

    The difference in a less than a half inch of plastic is hardly terrible.
