    considering ultimetal prime cost $950 and is nowhere as intricate as this, i highly doubt this will be $1k. i’m thinking more $2k-$2.5k since they made the comparison to collectible statues. if he goes for $1.5k-$2k i’ll be pleasantly surprised even though that’s still a shit ton of $

    Oh yeah, I really doubt it’ll be near a grand. I’m prepared to pay $2k, but I’d like to have 2 (I do it with all of my 3A figures, to leave one sealed). These non-transformable figures will be the only thing that really will stay with me, should I ever stop seriously collecting. So at $2k, I can afford one, which I probably won’t open.

    What’s the point in spending 2 grand on something and not opening it?

    That’s a fair point.

    I would normally open it, but the limited nature and the presumable fragility turn me off to removing it from the packaging. Also, I thought that I saw somewhere that the limited version will come with a certificate/proof of purchase with your name and your model no.xxx/500.

    people buy for different collection goals. there’re people that buy cars and keep them undriven in the garage or storage for decades, and if it’s a car that’s high in demand it can go for a lot more, especially when the mileage is really low, as an example.

    I mean, unlike cars this will come in a box, a box that more than likely has no window. I at that point would just spend a hundred bucks on making a replica of the box asking people for high res images of it. Saves you a couple thousand and you get that display box.

    some people just like knowing they own the figure, simple as that.

    This is pretty cool, but still a pass for me. Hurry the hell up and give me an official transforming figure Hasbro. #MPMbumblebeeprimeorbust .

    The Matrix is made of gold and platinum with a genuine sapphire in the middle. Also, they included a voicebox with personally customized Peter Cullen quotes for every single customer, but you have to pay his entire paycheck.

    I heard by pressing the sapphire in the middle connects you to a two way intercom between "the matrix bearer" and Peter Cullen. The premium edition features Pre-recorded Dad Jokes between Peter Cullen and Frank Welker.

    Y’all are joking, but, precious gems aside, that sounds absolutely incredible.

    In all seriousness of I wasn't living on a teacher's salary I probably would get a premium op statue made of precious metals and gems.

    This design is pretty awesome. I have the 3A DLX one that I'm pretty happy with and wouldn't mind having something like this but it would be a lot of money to spend on a design of a character that had a small cameo in a movie who's franchises future is little uncertain.

    If I knew for certain that we would be seeing this Prime again, then I would consider a larger display piece. Otherwise, I would be a little put off purchasing him only for his next on screen appearance to have been radically redesigned.

    More details have come up for the DELUXE and STANDARD version of the figure. Price will be up June 30th and Pre-Orders go live on July 1.

    Overall just an insane amount of detail and articulation. I wasn't quite on board before since this is probably gonna cost $1500-$2000+ but man you just gotta appreciate the engineering work that has gone into this.

    I love that they go into such detail on the inner workings on this whole thing. Hats off to yolopark for pulling something like this off! This is more art than a figure at this point.

    I'd buy one of these just for the joints engineering. To bad assuming a base price of $2000, having it shipped to my country can easily add another 1000, assuming it's possible to begin with.

    still, i’m blown away by their engineering. man, 500 pieces for the deluxe and 2000 for the standard? i hate having to battle out preorders like this (think macross).

    i know they said preorders are july 1st HK time, but does anyone know exactly what time PST this is when it actually opens up? or maybe they’ll announce it on the 30th along w the pricing?
