    Anyone ever find out the price of that thing. I'm betting it's not cheap.

    I love the look of this thing but I'm sure the price will drive me away.

    If they make a Starscream of equal awesomeness, I'll probably be very foolish and buy it.

    I'm betting that the cost of this will make a lot of people do a spittake.

    If it doesn't transform, I don't want it.

    I saw this at Comic-Con and while cool, it's still a statue.

    I'm sure it'll probably be in the $1000 to $1200 range.


    (Cue the "if it were $40 or $50 I'd bite, but not any more than that" comments)

    Yeah, sounds about right. Especially since their Avatar AMP suite maquette cost $1000 already. Prime will be bigger than that one, as well as having a bigger part count...

    The Sideshow AMP Suit maquette runs for $1200, so I'd say you're right on the money. I'll be getting this regardless. Just won't be buying much of anything else next year... :lol

    Ah, the Ramen diet for Silas?

    Unfortunately I know this will be out of my reach, which is a pity because the thing looks utterly, ridiculously badass in pictures.

    This is an amazing looking piece, but I'm just not enough of a Prime fan (any version) to pay that much for him. That kind of size and price limits me to my very favorite characters.
