    I know that's been pictured on Best Buy's website as a preorder, but will it be with every bluray edition, or is it a Best Buy exclusive?

    The price will most likely be somewhere between $800-$1000. But, that's pretty much the norm for an awesome polystone maquette like this.

    Maybe. As a rule, I don't by a Prime/Megatron from any series unless there's a Prime/Megatron counterpart to display with. This could be an exception, however.

    Re: The DVD exclusive bust:

    WIN. I normally don't do busts, but Sideshow Collectibles produce amazing stuff. And the $50 gift card will help fund my other addiction - their 1/6 Star Wars line.

    Re: The maquette:

    JAW MEET FLOOR.

    I'll never be able to afford it, but my god that's amazing.

    No articulation is is a Maquette which is a polystone statue of a character. The maquettes are usually based off of studio pieces or models used by the design tem. If I'm not mistaken.

    I doubt he'll need a weapon, or could even hold one.

    If they make a PUP Prime it would cost an ass load. Way more than this guy.

    You most likely wont be able to use the GC on the maquette. I can say that 99.9% sure.
