    That looks pretty damn nice! Quality looks ok, paintjob seems clean... How much do they want? :)

    It looks like the Impossible toys Arcee in a different box.

    EDIT: Okay, so it's different, but it follows the same transformation scheme.

    Cool it even comes with bonus anal beads.

    This is the one that was recently showing off at that Chinese con, right? Looks pretty good, hopefully the quality is better than Impossible Toys Arcee.

    So you can spend $70 for the Impossible Toys version, or spend $25 more for iGear's version (I.E. near exact duplicate)?

    That die cast better make one hell of a difference.

    The robot mode is definitely better, but who knows how the QC will bear out.

    Car mode wheels are a bit too big, or something. Maybe they stick out too far, but the end result is that she kinda looks like a kiddy-cart or pedal car in vehicle mode.

    Wow. That's.... really small.

    $100 for a deluxe sized figure? Made by iGear?

    No thanks.

    Why does it say October release and in-stock? I'm confused by this.

    I have to admit, it looks better than the IT one, but for already being hesitant to support iGear, the price makes it a definite no go for me. If they cut that in half, maybe I'll bite.

    I wasn't interested until I saw the bot mode. That thing looks really good in bot mode. This however has to be the worse transformation ever! I love how the one arm is just jammed under there with no real place to go.

    At least it has diecast and (hopefully) not crappy plastic.

    The price isn't worth it. The product is only slightly better than the most recent version, but not at the price they want. For 100 at that size it better be painted perfect and have no iffy areas any where. It would also help if there weren't several alternatives on the market.

    It looks nice, but I'd rather spend $100 on something official.

    It looks bigger than the Trans Valkyrie, assuming its standing next to the original MP?
