    Man, I really wish Takara would sell Fortress separately instead of having to buy Fort Max just to get him.

    Maybe a 3p will come out with a kit with a foot fix/add on, correctly colored articulated hands, and maybe a white waist or hip pieces. Some new rifles would be nice too.

    yeah, I feel you man, I wanted both Cerebros and Spike, but I also wanted Fortress and Fort, but I didnt want two big bodies. I ended up buying one of both but man do I wish I didnt have to.

    Yeah, I dig it too, but don't worry about the MP, it's inevitable. Takara knows that an MP would sell like crazy.

    Yikes, losing the silver on the legs suddenly makes the US pricing way too much.

    I hope this isn't final, that grey plastic doesn't look good. Plus the eyes were painted in the stock photos.

    Is Hasbro's awful grey plastic now spreading to Japan?

    It might be partially made with Hasbro parts for testing purposes.

    the thing is , with a mp powermaster optimus prime, I wonder how would the cab / cab's robot part scale ? it seems like it would have to be voyager size ( like star sabers small jet ). Which I would be extremely happy with and all but it would mean it would be about MP hot rod size ? If they made it as large as MP 10 optimus then it would have to be way out of scale with the likes of Star Saber ????

    Every time I see a new photo of this figure I think it looks great...until I see those feet. I'm still undecided. I have TR Powermaster Optimus Prime but I haven't opened him yet because I still haven't made up my mind about Legends Super Ginrai yet.

    That would be great. I just want Fortress.

    which is the perfect size, according to the cartoon.

    which makes me wonder if a MP version would need to be about the same size

    I'm pretty sure an MP Ginrai would transform like the original toy, so I imagine something MP Hot Rod size with an MP10 sized cab front plate attached to his back.

    When the person said they got their ginrai from AE for 60ish, they were not including their shipping quote... They will most likely pay closer to 80ish when all is said and done.

    Maybe but I did a group buy with a buddy of mine so we'll save a bit on the shipping.

    The three Cybertron supreme commanders united once more. :)  This makes me want to see an updated Generations Star Saber even more so this would feel more complete.
