Toy News: New photos of "Legends" God Ginrai

Earlier this month BWTF reported that Takara Tomy had announced a God Ginrai set to be released as a Takara Tomy exclusive. However at the time all the associated photos were either prototypes or stock photos of previous releases. Now thanks to Takara Tomy Mall we have brand new photos of the final products! These photos feature the translucent windows on Ginrai and Godbomber as well as the vacuum metallized silver on Godbomber.

Takara Tomy Mall has put up its listing for "Legends" Headmaster Soundwave along with official photos featuring this figure in all its modes. The deco is very G1-centric and his Headmaster sports Soundblaster colors based off the character's "reincarnation" from the "Headmasters" series. Takara Tomy Mall has the figure listed at 8,640 Yen (roughly $84 USD) however some retailers are asking less than that. Soundwave is due for release in late December 2016.
