    I happened to have the same stand they're using in there, so I bend my stand in the same way they did for their stand in the Mirage picture.
    For your reference, here's 6 inch ML figure with SS Crosshairs, my guess is Mirage around SS's Crosshair size, the stand is meant for 1/12, so I guess Primal and Prime should be around 6 or 7 inch.

    As of now no.

    I’m gonna assume close to 1/12 / SS sized based on how the stand is positioned.

    And a easy pass for me as Yolopark will be covering that for me if I wanted it.

    Will probably have to wait for a SS F-1 Mirage for a good SS sized Mirage.

    Yeah, Yolopark’s AMK has me covered when it comes to ROTB. I’m not over the moon with those designs, but AMK is cheap and frequent enough to overlook that.

    Trumpeter is not cheap, nor is it frequent. I have no reason to believe we won’t be waiting years for their ROTB offerings. They had me with the BBM designs and I still gave up on them because of the glacial releases, and those were much smaller and simpler. Unless the finish on these ROTB models is simply amazing I’m not sure I can be that hyped.

    I wonder how much smaller Trumpeter is compared to Yolopark. Because YP churns out several AMKs in a year, while, what, Trumpeter got two out?

    Makes me wonder how big the Tank Model Kit market is to make TF a low priority...

    Wheeljack looks absolutely incredible! I cannot wait for him to release. He's getting the full model kit treatment from me. Weathering, blackwash, paint and primer, the works. Primus, how I wish we had seen this design for longer than 2 seconds....

    Very strange how only Arcee and Wheeljack got different face designs. Bee and Optimus looked the same in terms of heads when they arrived to earth. Bee got slight tweaks in his head vents but the changes seemed unnecessary for the rest.

    I would jump on Yolopark AMK if their Optimus and Bumblebee weren't so mid. This line takes it for me

    it's not just tanks, they do general military stuff too like jeeps etc. it's a big market that's been around for a loooong time.
    they both look good (bee's eyes are a bit eh) but that lack of accessories kinda killed it for me, and i don't really want cheetor or rhinox
