    Yeah, mine had been saying today for delivery. Now it's saying tomorrow, but at least it's at my post office, so I will actually get it tomorrow.

    Wow, that sounds like it could go bad in so many ways if not done just right. But thanks for the advice. I'll keep it in mind.

    If I can seperate that piece, then what I want to do is swap all the blue from Powermaster Optimus onto Magnus Prime and also swap out Magnus Prime's waist for Powermaster Optimus'. Then the red, blue, and gray will be mostly consistent. The only discrepancies will be the blue fists, tiny bit of blue visible on the guns, gray waist, and the tiny gray hinges the feet are on. If I can make that work, it would make a Powermaster Optimus/Ginrai that I would be happy with.

    I should be getting Magnus Prime from a member here in a few weeks. I plan to do the exact same disassembly and paint that I did with PMOP so that I can paint the crotch and hips white like the vintage toy. I'll take pics of the process if you want. It's a really easy process that just takes patience and a somewhat steady hand.

    You didn't. You texted it. But it's still cool.

    Also, the dude who was buying my Ginrai apparently blocked me instead of paying for it. What a dick.

    Super happy with the set! Magnus Prime is a great remold, I will eventually have to track down a PE-15 for him. I am also thinking now that I have it in hand I will pick up the black PE-16 and just repaint the cab blue to keep the headmaster gimmick as well. I think that will work?

    Tidal Wave is nicer than I expected after looking at feedback about the Broadside mold. I want to get the axe that helps hold the fan Jet mode together.

    Metalhawk is a terrific toy of a character that I think I will get again later if MMC ends up doing a comic version. Right now he is just a cool jet with a cool Titanmaster hanging around City Max.

    Pounce is great and so is diecast Thunderwing. I hope Takara gives us another pack of Titanmasters in Legends. IMG_20170822_222133.jpg IMG_20170822_222138.jpg

    Got the set. My box from BBTS was really beaten up in shipping, but the figures were fine. Put Tidal Wave and Magnus Prime for sale in my sales thread.

    I didn't bother reading the instructions for Magnus Prime. Why were the feet overly difficult to transform to sit flush in truck mode is beyond anyone's guess. Took me a while to figure out the right way to do so. Is it worth getting Godbomber separately or to buy the other upgrade set that was mentioned in this message board?

    Not sure which upgrade kit you are referring to but

    Godbomber combines with him to make God Ginrai/apex armor powermaster prime

    Pc-15 includes a powermaster, led head for super/God modes and thigh fillers

    Pc-16 includes new transforming cab (powermaster and led head can interact with this figure)

    Pc-18 includes ankle stabilizers for God mode/arm fillers for godbomber, new sword, new guns,new wing ends

    I thought there was a Perfect Effect set teased to be their own version of Godbomber to go with the Powermaster Optimus Prime mold. I don't think they've mentioned it since Takara Godbomber came out though, I wonder if they just canceled it since they didn't want to compete.

    That was originally pc-15. My theory is that once godbomber was announced perfect effect took their $90 pc-16 upgrade (reasonable price for a 3p combining voyager) and split the set up into the $30ish pc-15 we got and the $60 pc-16

    So if the set is BBTS exclusive, does that mean they sell to sites like Tf Source and Chosen Prime? Or does it

    Those sites are likely buying stock from Asia, hence the increased price. You can buy the set off taobao for $97.50 before shipping

    Well, I was more wondering if the reason they didn't have tem in stock was due to BBTS or Hasbro. I already preordered it and unless I'm mistaken, you can't cancel preorders you pay for ahead of time with TFSource.

    Seems to be sold out again. I guess someone canceled their order and that's what went up as in stock.

    Mine is out for delivery as I type this. I'm looking forward to comparing Magnus Prime with my legends Ginrai to see which one I'm keeping as-is and which I'm going to be adding the Perfect Effect kit to...

    Finally opened my set today and I gotta say...it's absolutely stunning. If this set was a $350 Botcon set, it would be my all time favorite set. At $110 shipped, its unbelievable. Titans Return, with its combination of price point, character assortment, playability and quality decos, is my favorite line since G1. Masterpiece hits many of the marks for me but TR is just such a great line. Thank you to both Hasbro and Takara for keeping me feeling like a kid buying his first Transformer every time I open up a TR figure or set.
