    Looking good. Looking better than the universe one, I reckon. Pity it'll cost a squillion pounds and be impossible to find!

    Freaking awesome. I'll have to settle for Universe Powerglide though.

    Amazing - words fail me.

    I imagine that the price will be prohibitively high though, which means that it is never going to be part of my collection. Which is a shame as it looks very nice indeed.

    I love how they seem to release versions of characters (with the exception of Wheelie) that Hasbro has as upcomming releases almost to show them how G1 is supposed to be done.

    I have to admit, I'm not liking this after seeing Universe Powerglide. I think what they've done is rather creative but it's just not appealing to me.

    Some of them were announced a little while before Hasbro/TakaraTomy's toys. Coincidence, since it takes most of a year to develop an average TF.

    I believe these aren't full toys but garage kits - you'll need to build and paint them yourself, and meant for display.

    Color and mouth plate is right. Something Hasbro didn't manage to do.

    Very nice, but I'll be happy with the Universe version.

    Hasbro already did G1. Maybe you missed it - it was called G1. What they are now doing is re-imagining and updating it.
    Hasbro gave theirs a waist. Something Jizai didn't do.
    It's nice, for a slavishly G1 accurate figure. Pity it'll be massively overpriced, most likely rather fragile, and definitely about as common as rocking horse shit.

    OT: I LOVE your avatar.. I'm a huge fan of guinea pigs. We have several of the furry little children. :D 

    On topic...

    I'd be more interested in it if, I don't know, it was something that we could just ORDER. But it's one of those exclusive things that they won't sell to the US... so feh....
