    I had to look that up!

    Soundwave is 5.5". TFP Megatron's lower legs are a little less than half his height, so I'm guessing ~12 - 14" at the head. Wow.

    Supposedly 25cm for Prime and 27cm for Megs. So a little under 10” and 11”

    What about as a display piece of Kaon, where his statue stood?

    Non-uniform rational basis spline. It's a 3d modelling term.

    Holy s, where’s my Tardis? I need that thing now.

    Does anyone know yet who’ll be next in line? While some of the cast have great toys already (first edition Starscream is still my favourite TF figure) others, let’s just say, do not.

    If Optimus and Megatron do well, then I would guess Beast Hunter Optimus (they already suggested they would do him). After that they would continue doing main characters, based on the success of the previous ones. So if you want more of them, make sure you're buying the ones they make.

    They also have indicated that they would like to include Sentinel Prime's stolen arm as an accessory for Megatron.

    Totally unrelated to the figure but did they ever say in the show that it was in fact Sentinel Prime's arm? It's been a while since I've watched that episode and I can't recall.

    While I can appreciate Big Boned Optimus, I’ll skip that one personally. But I will throw money at a decent Knockout or a properly pointy and creepy Starscream.

    They never say it in the show, but The Art of Transformers Prime gives a lot of additional information and some back story to the show:

    Highly recommended for any fan of the show.

    Designer says he'll come with alternate heads with different faces.

    With all these great accessories for TFP Megs, I'm still really hoping they'll come up with a way to include the TFP style Matrix with Optimus. Even if they can't get the chest to open in a show-accurate way, just having the Matrix plug in under the chest armor would be awesome. Love the design of the thing!

    And totally agree about the TFP book. A must have for any TFP fan. ;)

    That would be awesome. I actually modelled that for the Beast Hunters Optimus recently and had to skip a lot of detail due to how small it turned out. Having a detailed version would be great.

    Ooo, that still sounds amazing. Can you post any images of the model work you did on that? Love to see the outcome.
