    LOL well considering Rodimus Prime can drive out of his eyeball, a scaled MP would be the size of a ranch-style home, lying down.

    Or if nothing else, make it a piece we can yank off for display if we want to.

    Jabba's Sail Barge had a minimum of 5,000 backers needed with 8,810 people who actually backed it. I don't think this is going to meet the minimum goal of 8,000. I hope it does.

    Hasbro isn't a bank. If they had an "installment plan", it'd be called the "Hasbro Visa Card".

    I read the article but I didn’t see the price. Maybe I just missed it but what is the price.

    Damn, I am so conflicted. If it wasn't so much money upfront I'd be all in on it. I don't have a problem with the price. Or if the charge date was October I just can't swing this in August. Did the Barge have such a short time to make their crowdfunding?

    ...ooh, i can set this up next to my broadside-deco USS flagg with jetfire-deco skystriker!..

    - and those will be the only things which fit in the room.

    (seriously, though, this is a super-cool figure, but at $575 apiece, i suspect that finding 8000 backers will be a tall order)

    it is truly a figure to behold and honestly i think i am gonna try at this, i got 170$ currently and 47 days to get the amount needed plus shipping so bring it on hasbro im coming for it.
    side note: he is labeled WFC unicron which worries me about the next siege titan which is to be rumored, is this the next siege titan and if so wow im getting really mad at no scorpinok, i mean the figure looks like he will be good but i wonder if he will crack or topple under his own weight. still hoping out for a scorpinok though and if he is revealed at SDCC like the rumors said than maybe ill get him first instead of unicron. but to me the price is ubsurd i have to agree with most i wish he was a titan figure or something so he would be a little cheaper. plus the holoness in the legs i already see and in the hands scare me, he his a big backpack too but what do u expect for a huge figure like him, i still wanna try at him.

    And in such short a time. I have a feeling that date may be wrong, asking people to have over $600 (inc taxes for me) available in short notice is kinda overly optimistic!

    P.S Is that how I understand that Hikari version?:D

    So if this is what they are gonna try to do for Unicron, then that tells me that the new titan (if there is one) is not Unicron so maybe black zarak aka Scorponok.

    In 2012, I dropped $100 per member of TFCs Hercules... $575 is acceptable to me.
