    Hey guys which if these are more screen accurate? If you can choose one of these, which one would you pick?

    Revoltech. More articulated probably, and I don't have to assemble the figure.

    I choose the Dual Model Kit, mainly because it is larger and obviously better detailed, and also because I'm going to enjoy putting it together, giving me a sense of accomplishment once it's done. I plan on getting the revoltech figure as well though. Both look incredible !!!

    I'll let you know when I have them in hand and can find the words to compare the incomparable.

    DMK is more accurate and if I had to choose one, it would be DMK but the Revoltech is still very cool but less... everything.

    This. Also, its half the price of the DMK.

    revoltech, it'll be cheaper and sturdier since it isn't using plamo plastic.

    I like building models, but the price is much too much for my interest.

    It's actually a third of the price, if it's $40, as BBTS has the DMK up for $120.

    We were just discussing this last night at a local collector meet-up.

    Revoltechs are just flat out nice. And I have all the TF Revoltechs but Convoy.

    But the model kit is obviously going to be fun to put together for people who like to do that. It also has chrome pieces, and I'm a sucker for chrome.

    Can't really choose one or the other, as I may end up picking up both eventually.

    Anyone know where I can buy the Dual Mode kit for Optimus? HLJ has discontinued Optimus from their line up.

    I'd go with Revoltech if I were going to pick up either. Revoltech as a line has failed to disappoint me in the past, and the price is much easier to swallow.

    I'm going to say Revoltech. There's something off about the hip and leg proportions on the model kit. I wish the Revoltech came with an alternate head like the model kit does though.

    Revoltech is smaller, and unless you have the tools, is also painted better. I am choosing Revoltech even though I have the tools to do a badass Prime paint job, mainly because I have no shelf space, and it's cheaper. I would not mind getting the Duel Model Kits one of these days though. Both are very screen accurate and highly articulated.

    Both will be mine. =) I love how DMK Prime looks; so movie accurate and awesome looking! Definitely a prize display piece, for sure! Revoltech Prime I would love for posing and general fiddling with since the Revoltech G1 figures lend themselves to great fun and action posing with the way they're built using softer plastics and the Revolver joints.

    The fact that I don't own a movie Prime figure yet is spurring me to get these two for the ultimate movie Prime representations. I had hopes of nabbing a Buster Prime (or a retooled DOTM version of it) but I'm not holding my breath there.

    Besides, I need a big and small Autobot to square off against MP-M01 Starscream (another amazing display piece) as well as my custom painted (more F-22 Raptor camo accurate) DOTM Deluxe Starscream (an awesome mold and just plain fun!). XD

    How tall is the revoltech prime? I can't seem to find any height specs.

    Both. Just do both. I have DMK, and Revoltech is already in my pile o' loot. They're both worth it.

    Revoltech is cheaper, and you can take it around all the time.
