    I look forward to seeing how all the other characters turn out (especially Dinobot) because this is a pretty nifty and faithful interpretation of big bot but there's no way in hell I could afford one. A Rhinox with his twin gatling guns of doom would look pretty sick too.

    If I could afford it, and convince my wife to let me display it, I'd have it as my fucking living room center piece. This thing is fantastic. I could look at those pictures all day. I wish the MP Primal looked like this!

    That's... It's... Stunning.
    But like Sideshow's amazing looking Voltron statue that is over $1000, I'm sure not rich enough to ever justify buying it.

    Man, if Beast Wars had looked like that, I would have definitely watched it when it was on air (it\'s on my to-watch list as an adult on principle).

    I'm amazed they actually sculpted all the hair on that model. That looks amazingly detailed and rendered.

    I don't care for the Waspinator pieces, but if there's a BW statue series and his body is going to be divided up amongst the figures then I'd find that funny and appropriate.

    Look at the teeth on Waspinator. I'm not too crazy about the fur on monkey boy...looks odd. But who in the name of Zeus' butthole are buying these statues. I'm not passing judgment, but man I would like to see someone with a collectors room with these scattered about.

    The final colors look amazing on him, and he also comes with an alternate mouth, his battle-mask.

    I'm not interested in Prime but I would gladly drop a grand each on Tarantulas and Blackarachnia.

    Absolutely gorgeous.

    ..that said, with Masterpiece Primal out, I think I rather go the articulated route myself.

    looks fantastic.

    makes me wish there was a way to completely update/retexture the series.

    Wish I could justify buying this, but with all the actual transforming articulated figures I still need to buy, this statue is a complete luxury that is not in my budget. I keep thinking of how many figures I can buy for the price of just one of these. Most of Prime 1's stuff has been really impressive so far though, particularly their Batman Statues.

    Wouldn't that be cool?! It would be nice if they could give Beast Wars the same treatment that Microsoft gave Halo CE with the anniversary release and mad it look all updated and shiny graphically.

    If they ever make a Waspinator statue, it will be pretty weird to have two of him.
