    And although he may not be as popular a “character” in the 80’s, he was always that “dream toy” for me and one of the last few I acquired in my collection... that alone makes this pretty special!

    In thinking about where to put him, doesn’t every Transformer room need a greeter? :lol 

    In all seriousness, I could easily put him in city mode on my center display tables:

    Or just stand him in that corner... hmmm

    Unicron is already breaking my 2ft rule, so this is a hard pass. Still not in scale, what's the point other than dick measuring?

    Eh, as much as I'd love this I don't have the space for it.

    And I'd rather spend my money on Beast Wars MP's.

    Plus I like to eat & stuff.

    So....once pre-orders go up, I'll be making payments of $25 per check towards him as I assume they'll go up long before he actually gets released.

    Nope nope nope nope. Don't need this. I remember thinking that Fanstoys had balls of steel when they came out with their Omega Supreme. This is just getting silly now!

    Thank God I have no interest in the post-Movie lines. I'm actually a little gutted that this is coming out instead of an FT Devastator.

    40-45 inches tall I'm seeing? Does this mean they are doing a Scorponok too that will be the same size? Am I going to need to claim him as a dependent on my taxes? I need oxygen.

    To be in scale the city would need to fill a gigantic family room at minimum. You would have to have masterpiece bots that could easily stand inside the city. I think a True masterpiece scale would be about 20 feet tall. Just a really rough estimate, please don’t fact check me on that size.
