    Well I'll be damned. I had said before that those couldnt be revoltech joints (I wouldnt think Kaiyodo would license them out, having built a line around them), but the closeups prove they are!

    I thought it was Optimus, a Gundam (the RX-78) and Tetsujin 28 aka Gigantor.

    It's pretty cool to see the Authentic Action TFs using the Revoltech joints. Perhaps the reason we've seen G1 Revoltechs made was a part of a deal with Kaiyado to license the revolver joint system for these figures?

    Those are the actual joints? I'm very very surprised by this. Cheap Revoltech figures. I think Hasbro could get sued for this. Kaiyodo couldn't even sell Revoltech Convoy properly in the US because of issues with Hasbro, but now Hasbro's using Revolver Joint Technology? I honestly don't know what I think about this. The Prime and Barricade figures look decent to me. I want to know the price point. Watch it be $15 or more. I won't pay that much.

    Now, does anyone else thing Prime's head looks very odd the way it's attached to the torso? I've noticed the same type of awkwardness in a couple of the official renders. There's just something off about that head design. On this figure, at least, it appears the face is too long. Hmm... Very interesting images here, though. Best bit of news I've read on here in a long time.
