    You know that's an unpainted test shot right??? The fully painted version is, while not exact, a pretty close approximation of a real Ferrari.

    There is no paint according to the thread, it says later the real product will have metallic paint on it.

    He's not that much taller than '07 Bee. This guy is reported to stand 6 inches tall so he'll be just a tiny bit taller.

    I don't have any AOE or TLK deluxe figures to compare this with but he won't be inches above the original trilogy deluxe figures.

    This figure literally brought me out of hiatus. I had sold all of my collection, and completely switched to other hobbies. Seeing this figure sparked my interest all over again. (Funnily enough, Mirage is my avatar from way back as well.) Have it preordered. Can't wait!

    I suppose, Firage will be about shoulder height of your other MP Carbots (considering normal MP Carbots range around 6.5 -7.2 inch).

    It is not bad size. For me at least.
    POed.

    Why? No reason.. not to debate. Just curious..

    Is it because original deluxe scale is bigger and this is original deluxe scale? (asking.. not knowing)

    Anybody else read his name as HARDON? :lol 

    In all seriousness, as a bayverse carbot... It's pretty good, size wise and all.

    Should be smaller than Bee, so right on.

    I guess u have that on your mind? jk. Unless..
    My question was real. Not sure what you meant in response.
    I meant as in.. What is this scale vs Deluxe scale? Slightly taller than deluxe scale? I kind of assumed it is deluxe scale.. about 6 or 7 inches?

    Remember that everything is smaller these days, and costs more for what you get... On the official channel that is.

    Take a leader optimus from 07' and compare it to a 17' optimus... Same price point, yet the 07' was bigger, more heft to it, less shellforming, and came with electronics...

    If we are only comparing AA's Firage to bayverse offerings, due to the scale being out of wack already from the official channel all these years - then he should fit in nicely with anything from the first movie. Anything after that is incomparable due to the likes of "voyager" megatron (yeah right) and "crankcase" in vehicle form in the dotm offerings.

    This is not "Stinger" who was based on bumblebee, but the movieverse version of mirage... He can be whatever size he needs to be so the alt mode fits... Smaller bot mode is acceptable, but I wouldn't turn my nose up to a larger bot if the vehicle scale fits.

    And I was joking about the name-tag... But I swear, that's how I kept reading it due to skimming, :lol

    AA it's from the same tree as XTBS, seeing a good XTB figure and BETTER than the others it's a sign of improvement in their QX.

    What I read is Dino is around 15 cm, so less than 6 inches.

    Because I'm tired of people ragging on this figure just because it's somewhat associated with XTB.

    And the winner for creepiest avatar goes to either jabba the hutt or penis with genital warts, not quite sure what I'm looking at there.

    And back on topic, not only am I loving the pics so far, but that preorder price seems really good as well.

    I see... OK cool. I didn't realize it was meant as a quality control qualifier. My apologies for calling out your post.
