    looks alright. the head looks kind of skinny and long. the mouth area seems like there isnt much seperating between the face and mouth, looks like one piece kind of. probably will be expensive none the less.

    Looks even better in paint, which is no surprise. Insane. They did an awesome job of color-matching too.

    I'm thinking this'll be mine. Gotta start saving now so I have a chance to buy it when the prices go up.

    I would've only bought it if it had the non-battle mode face. The LED in the crest seems really out of place, I don't remember Prime having a light there in the movie.

    Huh, he has a battle mask..

    Anyway it looks really pretty, but probably waaaay to expensive for my taste.
    Ah well..

    I hope no one buys this thinking it's gonna come like that. It's a resin kit, you'll have to put it together yourself. And it's not just snap fitting like a Gundam model or something.

    Anyways, it looks very nice, I'd go for it if it were preassembled.

    That's impressive, even though some details are off.

    Going by the other models the company's put out, I believe you have the option to buy it preassembled as well as unassembled (with the latter of course beeing quite a bit cheaper).

    For some reason they didn't include any of the Cybertronian hieroglyphics that were all over Prime's head. The eyes are quite off, too - I don't recall the cornea glow encompassing such a large area. LEDs for the eyes need to be much brighter to match the movie.

    But still very impressive.

    The product page for the Prime head states:

    So, there will be a finished kit. Assuming this costs about the same as their Gundam heads, it'll be about $108 for the Resin Kit and $198 for the Finished Kit.

    The heads are the worst part of these movie designs, why anyone would want statues of the heads is beyond me.

    ugly!!

    As for the model itself, it's ok, not completely accurate, but kinda close, like someone else mention, it's missing most of the finer details, and the eyes aren't right
