    curious whether takaras will be pm optimus prime or ginrai.
    or they do something out of left field like star convoy or black convoy.
    like they did for the grand galvatron limbs.

    I would imagine it would be Ginrai, but does it really matter? After all the color scheme is basically the same, with the only relevant real difference being blue fists. As for God Ginrai there is already rumors, which hold weight, that the Hasbro Will release a god bomber/apex upgrade for Power Master Optimus Prime.

    It's a pity Hasbro are headmastering characters that were never headmasters. Won't be buying this unfortunately.

    If you have CW Leader G1 Megatron how does TR PM Optimus Prime look next to him?

    That would have been a-freaking-mazing.

    Here's hoping some 3P company to create a cab for TR PMOP, which can actually do this.

    I'm just happy they're actually doing characters like Powermaster Prime, Alpha Trion, etc. I could careless if they were headmasters so guys like him are an easy buy.

    It really doesn't matter; the original figure you had to take off the head to, just don't Transform Apex and you will get a similar result to the original figure.

    And the new figure does not need to take the head off. You can store the head including leaving the titanmaster as a head in the helmet for transformation in the cab. So in a way the new mold is even better than the original one. Only downside is the hollowness, the panels behind the arms and the open trailer end at the front.

    I still can't believe this is a remold of Leader Ultra Magnus. Sure in some parts he looks similar, but I guessed it's just a coincidence.

    This really shows what Hasbro/Takara can do when they're being serious.

    it matters to me because im curious.
    those rumors and assumptions mean little until they become fact.
    and until they are theres scope for takara to do something unusual.
    computron, grand galvatron, blast off, grand scourge.. all threw a curve ball.
    and i like curve balls.

    If the rumors about the armor are true, we might be seeing Ginrai after Hasbro showed us the armor figure. I somehow forgot what it was called. Ah, God Bomber. Now I remember :lol 

    And that means they package it together. Which means I would have to get rid of the God Bomber figure after buying the set. Anyone interested in a Takara God Bomber figure, if that happens? :lol

    It does yeah, why headmaster a character that never was? Why not at the very least do the same head like magnus. I'll be saving money because I won't buy a character that has been shoe horned into being a headmaster which is a terrible gimmick imo

    Well that's not entirely true. Rumors (assumptions are a different matter) mean a great deal because they can be appraised up to a very high point. Rumors from a source that has a history of mostly being true (nearly 100 % of the rumor so far these guys have stated is accurate) and that same source having expertise (they are Transformer fans looking at Transformer stuff) mostly interpreting what they see as accurate. This shows a history of a quality rumor and very likely the data they provided is accurate.

    Regarding Takara's curve balls, I imagine it extends to what we can conclude from rumors and practicality;

    1. Takara will almost definitely have a different paint apps, but the primary colors will remain the same

    2. Takara may likely provide God Bomber with the figure out of the box because historically this is what they have done in the past.

    3. If Takara provides God Bomber the price will be significantly more expensive (>60%) than the Hasbro version.

    4. Even chance Takara will remold the Cab to look more Masterforce like.

    Nearly all of this can be concluded from the rumors. Rumors are not so black and white, they have depth my friend:) .

    If that's how you feel about it.
