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.

Since we heard about TakaraTomy's "Power of Prime" line, we've been speculating that the reduced prices (relative to Legends series) indicate straight repacks of the US toys. While nothing is 100% certain until we have them in hand... those sure are US toys in the Dengeki Hobby photo gallery we've mirrored here. In particular, Jazz's markings are all 100% identical to the US release in these photos - even if these are entirely the US-release toys, whether the promised running change will apply to the TakaraTomy release is currently unknown. Good photos though - keep reading to see more!
The ever reliable Tagoal has posted new in-hand images of LG-EX God Ginrai! The figure is a re-release of the individual TakaraTomy Godbomber and Super Ginrai, and... basically, what you get for this fancy boxset is clear windows on Ginrai, chrome on Godbomber, and two new Headmasters. Is that worth buying this set twice? Probably not, but we think it'll probably come down to how much you like Minerva and Cab. Keep reading!
We've reported previously on the retool of Cerebros and Emissary - or if you prefer, Fortress - to feature likenesses of the "Downtown" comedy duo. Tonight we have an official page for the mailaway exclusive item, complete with clearer stock images of the larger figure and its Titan Master/Headmasters, showing both of the faces as well as the face that will adorn whatever Fortress or Grand Maximus one may eventually dock this item to. We're still waiting to find out what exactly might go on the sound chip for this edition. Click through to see the photos.
The opening alone is worth the price of admission. TakaraTomy has posted a new 100-second ad for their Street Fighter II x Transformers toys to YouTube, and it's a nice little thing with a great adaptation of the Super Street Fighter II Turbo intro. Keep reading to have a look!
Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon broke the news - and site sponsor BigBadToyStore has just confirmed - that TakaraTomy's version of Power of the Primes begins in May! Titled very similarly as Power of Prime, the figures listed are being released in a format seemingly identical to their US releases. But, what's interesting is what's not listed from Wave 1. Keep reading for details!
