This toy looks awesome (as long as you didn’t get one with horribly bad paint on his face, see below for a link to more on that).  In his tech spec it is mentioned that he has got the nickname Fire Guts, a reference to the fact that his appropriate colors are that of Optimus Prime, so they used the Fire Guts repaint of Powermaster Optimus Prime as a basis for his paint job.  My problem here is that they are giving him this as a nickname, but that in no way explains that he is not in his correct colors.  His name should be on the tech spec as “Fire Guts Ginrai.”  That would appropriately explain that he is not in his correct color scheme.  I would even have been okay with them making him (and I am throwing up in my mouth a little just thinking this) Shattered Glass Ginrai.  Having said all that, I like this toy too much not to give it a good grade.

Grade: A-

About lmb3

I’m 36 years old, and I work in network tech support for a public school system. I am a huge fan of Star Trek, Transformers, Harry Potter, and Marvel Comics as well as numerous other fandoms. I’m a big sports fan, especially the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. I collect toys (mostly Transformers but other stuff too), comic books, and Red Sox baseball cards. I watch an obscene amount of television and love going to the movies. I am hopelessly addicted to Wizard Rock and I write Harry Potter Fanfiction, though these days I am working on a couple of different original YA novels.
