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.

Toy News: Takara Tomy releases new photos of "Legends" Godbomber

Takara Tomy has released two new photos of the upcoming "Legends" Godbomber figure via their Twitter feed. The "Legends" line (the Japanese equivalent of "Generations") has long devoted itself to updated versions of classic characters, but Godbomber may be one of the less widely known characters. Originally introduced in "Masterforce", this character transformed into armor and a trailer for Ginrai. While not shown combined in these photos, it is assumed Godbomber will be able to combine with "Legends" Ginrai.

Toy Review: "Generations" Titans Return Quickswitch

Quickswitch is able to transform rapidly between six different forms, giving him an edge in battle matched only by a handful of other Transformers. This ability also represents his tendency to switch moods unexpectedly! Check out my review of Quickswitch from the "Chaos on Velocitron" set.
