    The cost cutting is in the casting. Costs more to make casts (higher piece count.)

    Weird. Mine stays together just fine. The only annoying thing is that God Bomber's helmet likes to pop off of where it's stored if it's breathed on funny, but I can live with that. And as far as standing... It takes care getting him into a good pose, but once I've done so, he's good. He'll wobble a bit if poked, but he won't fall down.

    I do see a lot of people complaining about this figure's stability in general, though. Which always makes me wonder... Am I just a lot more forgiving with this figure? Or did I just get super lucky and get one that is a bit steadier than most?

    I mean, you can probably sit saber on top, but there's no handles I don't think

    I'm really excited for this. At first I thought it was only okay, but with pictures it definitely grew on me. I hope the wait isn't terrible...

    And thanks for the compliment on the handle. I need to take a better pic someday of my actual genesis with the Genesis Megatron...

    the "handles" are the antennas on the helmet. so you could properly have saber grab then but they would just rest in his hands. so kind of

    I was charged about 2 hours after campaign ended. You’ll most likely see yours charged in the very near future, probably a day or two.

    Yes. One that isn't part Headmaster with a Godbomber that doesn't have arms that fall apart.

    Actually on the subject of God Ginrai, now that we have Commander size to surpass Leader size and it applies to number of pieces rather than size, would Commander be the ideal class for God Ginrai with a Voyager-sized Godbomber?

    I kinda want them to do a commander Ginrai/Power master Optimus Prime, and then release God/Apex Bomber as a stand alone Leader class release.

    That way neither figure would eat into each other's budgets and we can get really well built versions of both of them. I feel like PMOP/Ginrai can easily use the entire commander budget for himself and turn out well, but throw Bomber in the same box and it'll quickly turn the whole thing into a mess.

    Meanwhile, making Bomber into a roughly Doubledealer sized sorta Weaponizer in the leader class would make him about the right size for PMOP/Ginrai (don't forget how BEEFY God Bomber really is) and still be a decent enough stand alone figure. Even if his alt mode is kind of just an extra trailer, at least it has windows to sorta suggest it could be its own thing.

    The question is, how would they handle the character bio and deco for the two? I'd assume they'd make the retail commander Optimus rather than Ginrai, but would they give him the american color scheme and release the Ginrai one as genselects, or is that not different enough and just give Optimus the ginrai colors and retcon that as his color scheme, and make a selects ginrai be the fire guts deco or something.

    I'd also like the bulkier head and chest of the marvel look for PMOP, though even if HasTak doesn't do that that's probably something that can be 3D printed if a 3P upgrade kit doesn't do it.

    Also God/Apex Bomber should be retconned as Roller if he's released at retail don't @ me
