    Not surprising, comparable to their other models.

    Detailed specs are available at the link.

    Looks to be about 9 inches tall, though.

    Meh... looks nice but I question whether it's worth that price.

    The price isn't horrible, considering that it's not something that's mass produced by a big company.

    I wonder why they didn't bother sculpting in the hiroglyphics.

    thats a pretty good price for something like that, espically painted. But i'm not a fan of head only busts or busts in general so yea.

    I have a model of Prime's head on my desk. It's the Hasbro voice changer.

    Seriously we only saw the "battle mask" for a few brief moments, and yet no merchandising has been done featuring an accurate head seen in 98% of the film.

    Overall it looks nice but the eyes look like crap to me. Pass.

    Looks like he's falling asleep, but that's from the Bayformers design. Clean sculpt though. PASS!

    That's a good question. The sculpt is a little too clean in general also. I liked the worn, dirty look of the models in the film.

    The price actually isn't that bad for the size of the item and the electronics it includes. Expensive, yeah, but it's for a select market of premium item fans, of course it won't please most. It looks nice to me, I'd want one... just not for that much.

    Great detail on the piece... this will make a collector very happy, and it's a nice touch that it actually lights up as well.

    But I'm still not a fan of the movie head designs.

    Too much money for me!

    Plus, I'd rather have a head model with the mouth. As Optimist Prime said, that face is the one you see mostly in the film, not the faceplate.

    Not a bad price IMO for such a piece ... but I don't collect busts.
