    Well, it was nice knowing Diamond Select Toys, it's only a mtter of time before they go the way of Dreamwave and Palisades, how long does IDW have?

    J/K, that thing looks sweet, but I'm sure it's price will be outside the price range of most TF collectors, which seems to be the price of a Supreme.

    I'd like to know what it's made out of. Plastic? Metal? Also isn't the center supposed to be blue not green? The Key to Vector Sigma isn't to scale either. Oh, and despite my questions/comments, I'll be doing my best to get one. :D

    I just want to go on record as saying Thanks Diamond Select for making this really excellent replica of the Matrix and of the Key to Vector Sigma. I don't know if I will be able to get one, but I will certainly try and it looks as good as anyone can expect.

    Depending on the price/size/ability to open it, I will definitely look into this.

    How large would a full-size model be? Just under the width of a semi cab...what is that, maybe six feet wide? And (just eyeballing mentally here) maybe 2 feet high and 18" deep?

    Good God, if it's human scale and I can crack it open even slightly, I'd spent $200+ easy. That'd be freaking amazing.

    From the pics I've seen before, the "crystal" in the middle is a light shade of blue. There also seems to be a hint from what LOOKS like a "crease" of sorts down the middle of the casing, indicating that it may be possible to open it.

    Gads, I hope I can somehow afford this thing....

    That's sick... I LOVE IT.

    Are they doing TWO versions of the Motion Globes? It appears to be cartoon color and then Metallic color. I feel bad for completeists...

    That looks really cool. Gotta love the key to Vector Sigma too. Doubt it'll be cheap enough for me to get it since I'm not big on statue type things, but it's still really sweet.

    Pretty reasonable.

    My girlfriend will still kill me and possibly splay my corpse, but I think that's pretty reasonable.

    $175?!

    It's cheaper than I though it would be. Still, it's over $100 so that means I won't be importing it, but if I see it next time I go to the US, I'll definetely pick it up.
