    That's pretty hot.

    Though, I think I'll just stick with the Skyfire one. Saves me ~$60. ^_^

    Seems like AFX gets all the remold exclusives. Unlike BBTS that gets new characters.

    so I assume that the fist swaps out for the open hand that holds the helmet?

    Dammit, I could've had the news credit. :( 

    I could've sworn this was news awhile back, though. The preorders were taken down for that particular news thread, though.


    Anyways, the battle damage look is great. As is the interchangeable head and hands!

    I just don't see the point of a bust, it looks silly to have 3/4 of the body just hanging there with no legs, just make it a full-size statue.

    I guess they just think that they would sell more busts because they're cheaper. A full body statue would cost well over $100. And then people would say "I only buy 'transforming' Transformers" and less would sell.

    Though it looks really nice I dont like Busts. Looking at it all they need to do is add legs a viola you have a full standing Skyfire.

    First, wow! That bust is amazing!

    As for the why not a full statue thing? I'll bet is has something to with license rights. Like, they can only produce characters from the waist up becuse another company has rights for full body statues. Just a hunch...

    It reminds me of something a buddy told me about Legos. I asked why Lego couldn't produce figure only packs of the Star Wars figures and he told me that there contract stated they couldn't. Something about Hasbro getting in the way. Therefore, Lego can only produce "building sets" with figures included. I know... different. But kinda the same! :wink:
