    Wow $1000 for a statue, so expensive!  It is over two feet tall though, so maybe worth it?  I\'m not sure but I\'m definitely interested!  I would have preferred Rattrap standing next to Primal instead of Primal standing over Waspinator posing on a rock though, for the same amount of materials used...  

    I would gladly drop $1k on a Dinobot in whatever pose.  Even the Macarena.  And I hate the stupid Macarena.

    Anyone else suspect that this might be the only Beast Wars statue made by this company, in this style?

    I'm not sure what their business model is, but even I have to admit that Beast Wars is a niche fandom and I don't see more than a handful of fans (globally) with this kind of disposable income and also willing to spend that portion of it on one statue.

    We'll see...

    Just opened up my statue, its very impressive. I have one complaint which is the same I had for the G1/Movie style Megs and Optimus, the boxes are awful. Prime 1 is terrible at making things easy to unpack/pack. I'd rather they have one large box with insert boxes or a couple of small boxes for the statue. These are super heavy and when boxed are not easy to move around. I've had to trash the shipping boxes on all three due to shipping damage of varying degrees.

    Otherwise this is a fantastic piece and I look forward to Beast Wars Megatron.

    Mine just came in. 21/200 so pretty happy with the low number. Totally underestimated the size and weight of this guy. Stunning in person

    So badass looking! I have the same one and now waiting for Megatron! These are huge and heavy in person. I actually like the sculpt for the beast wars better than the g1 statues p1 made. These are bigger than the g1's as well from p1. The head alone on primal is like 2-3 bigger from the pics.

    Yeah. Love this statue. Limiting my statues to just primes. I went with P1 for nemesis prime and tossing around the idea of picking up XM for my G1.
