$30 @ tru Winchester, San Jose. Hollow legs. Pretty lightweight.
Here's the back.
What the-? I haven't heard about this thing until now. Does it at least do anything?
That's a big one for sure. How does he fit on the shelf?
Checked out my TRU for RB stuff and they didn't have that one yet.
It's chest opens and the arms move
There's 12 inch versions of the main cast four coming too, they do the same sort of thing:
That looks better than the Generations Voyager Prime.
Wait this is news? These have been out at the store I work at for about a month.
As my kid can whack us with these things, my wife has basically forbidden me from buying anything bigger than 6 inches.
That may look like a slick new Optimus to you, but to us, it's a murder weapon.
Plus, $30 for a big, hollow, non-articulated mess? No thanks. I get it's for kids, but you can clearly see they're making up for a loss in customers by charging existing customers more. Classy.
You know if all the toddler titan figures clogging up real TF shelf space had this decent of a deco and sculpt it would be so much more forgivable.. So Much more..
That thing is awesome. Reminds me of a jumbo machinder. Guaranteed this thing ends up being super collectible at some point. Now just make a Megatron.
Is just a giant hunk of plastic theyr'e selling this for $30.
Kids can't be that gullible?
Pretty reasonable price actually if you look at the retail price of vintage Jumbo Machinders. Too bad he doesn't have many play gimmicks like firing arrows or fists but those probably wouldn't pass for safety nowadays. This seems to be pretty awesome for kids. They dig giant toys so makes sense.
They had him up on the highest shelf, so I had to hold him to take a pic lol.
If only he had a sound gimmick with Peter Cullen narrating legends of cybertron, then he'd be really epic.
What's the back look like?
I'll take additional pics later. I think it has some stickers on the back but the arms are plain and the back of the legs are hollow.
Bah. Thanks for taking pics though. I thought maybe the hollow legs were at least fully molded. Oh well. I'm still intrigued.
That looks actually cool.
So, you can make him do The Monkey?
Agreed. And after those Jumbo Machinder Transformers never actually materialized, it's cool to see something similar.
