    Looks nice, but lol@ "Dark of the Movie".

    I'll have to wait to see pricing, but it might be a nice alternative for those of us who missed out on the Dual Model kit.

    edit: 20" tall?!! And some metal parts along with rubber tires... Blimey, charlie... This is going to be expensive.

    I spit my soda on that gem. :lol  Yes and very brittle I'd say. One good bump into a table and that money is gone. Still very nice regardless.

    Yes, it sounds cool and sooo expensive, but all the expensive figurines on bigbadtoystore are bought, so someone does not feel sorry for the money... Cool, that they will finally be on the same scale... However, someone must also consider where to put this beauty...

    Sounds impressive, but the prototypes leave a little to be desired. Details are a little lacking and the proportions seem off.

    So they're HUGE. Beyond that do they have anything to offer the DMK didn't?

    I was frustrated they only made Prime and BB in DMK. But these are so big that even if they made more it might be impossible to find space for them.

    Probably nothing I'm interested in. All I can do is hope that maybe Takara returns to DMK and adds a few new characters for TF4.

    These look pretty cool to me and with them being statues and having articulation to them will make them even cooler. I am hoping the price range won't be too high for these so I am hoping no more then say 250 but if they end up being between 300 and 500 then I don't think I nor anyone else will buy them. Going to keep my eye on these though.
