    Yes, I struggled with this same thing. In the end I simply gave up on it because even if it would have worked, the base mode would have been asymmetrical unless you tossed the other gun.

    I really don't get why they didn't opt for the cab to look a bit more like that, instead of EVEN LESS LIKE THAT compared to Magnus's already super goofy looking cab.

    I had the same thought! Even thinner windows? They do line up with chestplate but they could have made the chestplate smaller or made the windows big and the chest covering them would get the thin shape.

    Thankfully that option to get the g1 like cab still exists for us by paying a bit more for the Takara version. With the new feet, arms, cab/chest, guns, paint differences it could be worth the double dip.

    Do you guys think that this Optimus Prime mold can be tweaked to give us a leader class Powermaster Rodimus?

    Cool! Did you have to scrape paint off to get it on like that? I was worried about affecting the appearance in robot mode.

    Can it? Sure, it's possible. The better question is would it be well received? Seeing how it would be the third use of this mold for a character we never received in this form, it would probably be no. That concept looks more like a leader class Inferno. Give Rodimus Prime his own voyager class mold to scale with Galvatron.

    On mine it absolutely doesn't fit. It just isn't the right size or shape, like not even close. I love this line, but tolerances on the figures are terribly inconsistent.

    I actually like the stock cab, I think it makes him looks massive in scale.

    I'm double dipping. They will be different enough. I still have my c310 god ginrai and takara might release God bomber so gotta have both of these.

    I'm planning to skip PM Prime and get Super Ginrai and the rumored Diaclone Powered Convoy colored redeco of PM Prime ~ end up with 3 unique molds and colors that way :D

    I will get those as well but I grew up with G1 PM Prime. I didnt want to wait that long for Takara's version.

    I'm not a big fan of the way the head looks with the eyes set so far back. This is mine with a sticky note stuck between the mask and Apex.

    Also, for those struggling to get the trailer panels to line up properly, make sure you connect the arm panels to the rear before snapping the leg panels into the body. I'm not sure if the instructions say that, but I've seen some video reviews having trouble.

    I didn't realize that the chest piece popped off so easily. I like the figure a lot more without it.

    EDIT: Don't miss the chest piece in alt mode either. It's still solid. :)

    !!! 0_o;;

    I could actually get behind that. Granted, I'd want a good Voyager Rodimus too... but a Powermaster Rodimus Prime? With exposed engine block like Optimus and that also homages Hot Rod? Yeah, I think that works really well in theory.

    Yeah looks pretty nice, good alternative setup, I had just assumed it would look strange like Ultra Magnus good find :thumb . I still prefer the default setup, but it's a nice to have the option to change once and a while.

    With the Renderform cannons announced I think this figure will be perfect.

    Same with mine. Not even close to fitting.
