Takara-Tomy’s @TF_PR twitter account has shared an image of the upcoming Transformers Legends Ginrai standing side-by-side with his US equivalent, Titans Return Powermaster Optimus Prime. Much like the original Super Ginrai toy compared to Generation 1 Powermaster Optimus Prime, this new release is more than just the Hasbro version repackaged for the Japanese market, featuring additions including remolded chest, feet and forearms, with additional articulation and new guns to boot. Thanks to the new feet, Ginrai also stands around a half-inch taller than Powermaster Optimus Prime.
We know that ultimately Takara-Tomy’s Ginrai will also combine with the upcoming Godbomber figure which is in the works to form a full-on God Ginrai, but we feel that this image really brings home how awesome Ginrai looks even without his booster armor. Check out the image attached to this post.
