    Took me 8 months to build this, not counting Versions 1 and 2 that I made before it (which served as development phases).

    He stands 20.25 inches tall. Poseable fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck, knees, ankles, chest kibble, shoulder armor, and collarbones/visors. And it comes with 1 extra face.

    I would make the entire Autobot team in scale if I was balls-off-the-wall rich.

    my advice is to put 2 swords on him and call him rotf prime, perfect timing for that.

    I opted out of giving him any weapons for a few reasons.
    1. His arms alone are already too heavy to hold almost any pose.
    2. I thought about the swords, but couldn't find enough variety of orange pieces in the proper shapes
    3. A gun would've just been too retardedly heavy for this scale.

    So the only accessory he comes with is an extra face, unless you count his support rod and platform as accessories.
