LG-EX Legends God Ginrai With Minerva & Cab - Official Photos Of Controversially Shiny Figure
RAC - Monday, June 19, 2017


So, you just finished spending about two hundred bucks on LG-35 Super Ginrai and LG-42 Godbomber. Want Headmaster/Titan Master figures of Minerva and Cab, and maybe some chrome for Godbomber's chest? Hope you're prepared to do it again! TakaraTomy has posted the first color images of the LG-EX set, scheduled for November and open for preorder now. Keep reading to see!
The official price given on the TakaraTomy Mall website is 17,280 Yen, which might even be a little cheaper than the two figures were at individual retail. Argh!

Meanwhile, if you're down to spend two hundred bucks on a God Ginrai and want to get two bonus figures each of the Titan Master, Legends, Deluxe, and Voyager classes, the Titans Return Siege on Cybertron set is due out any day now with Magnus Prime, who uses the Super Ginrai variant of the Powermaster Optimus Prime mold. Godbomber has not yet been annnounced, but we have two more multipacks planned with Leader slots available, and why would you release the Ginrai mold in the US if not to make God Ginrai available to the rest of the world?

Ginrai is the human character who, in the Japanese Transformers cartoon sequel Super-God Masterforce, inherited the "transtector" - non-sentient Transformer body - which was originally intended to be used by Optimus Prime. The Japanese Godmasters were the equivalent of the US Powermasters, and Ginrai the human was the Hi-Q figure. Super Ginrai was the combined mode of Powermaster Optimus Prime and his trailer, and God Ginrai was the combination of Super Ginrai and Godbomber, who was not available in the US until the "Powermaster Optimus Prime with Apex Armor" reissue in the early 2000s. You can pre-order this figure now at BigBadToyStore.com.

This review of Greatshot comes from chuckdawg1999 on the TFormers forums! His summary: "Legends Greatshot is a fantastic update to the G1 figure. I really like how the colors pop, especially the gold on the chest. While I am disappointed the head has to be removed for transformation, the figure makes it very easy to overlook. Crossed fingers that we get a Shadow Maru down the line?" Click through to view!
Once again from Gamerlingual we have images of the comic packed in with LG-EX Greatshot. Though much of the detail of what's going on is hard to get from just the art, one element is pretty clear: the expectations of some fans have been met, and it looks like Greatshot's Headmaster is being explained as a revived form of Chromedome's friend Jack, who Sixshot killed in The Headmasters. This takes advantage of the Titan Master sculpt for Sixshot taking design cues from that character model, and that mold element being reused for this release. Click through to have a look at the new comic.
We've got our first look at the comic included with LG-EX Grand Maximus. These first images are photos of the pages, so they're not the absolute highest quality, but they're pretty good for now. Not that we think higher quality scans would lead to the comic making all that much more sense in absence of the dialogue to tie it together. The show-stealer though is an appearance of Black Zarak embodied as a recolored Doubledealer using the Scorponok Titan Master that came with Grotusque. Not something we expect to ever see for sale, but an interesting use of resources. You can puzzle along with it in the gallery below while we hope for a translation in the near future!
We've got some good looks at this month's special Transformers releases from Japan straight off of Twitter. First from Alfes2010, we have more pictures of Greatshot, including a side by side image with an original Greatshot. Plus a bonus of Greatshot and Sixshot switching faces. These photos give a really nice look at the robot mode and its retooled parts, though not really putting any attention on the alt modes this time. Click through to check them all out now!
Oscar Fung has been among the first to receive the exclusive Legends series figures being released as we close out the month of March, and so over on the Hobbymizer Facebook group, we've got some early photos from him doing the basic rundown of Greatshot. Greatshot is of course a retool of Titans Return Sixshot featuring several new pieces, some of which is shown in detail among the standard assortment of alt mode photos. It looks like it's all turned out pretty well! We'll be watching for further photos of this as well as Grand Maximus, the two of which currently represent the end of the Legends series for the known future.
