    That price makes it them more appealing but I’d still like to have more robotic looking heads, even if they remained flesh tone.They’d still fit in with my Nezha.

    Based on the pic a few posts up, they look to average 6 inches tall.

    I have a soda can in front of me...and too lazy to measure with my ruler, hehe, but my hand is 7.5"...and at least 2.5" beyond the can? So I think you might be right in a 6" figure. Tiny for me since most of my collections is OS. If this price, would be good to get WJ back on their feet to do some originals.

    If you had opened up the link I posted regarding the price, you would have seen these same photos, that are also posted 2 pages back, that shows every figures' dimensions:

    I'm 50 years old...I have no clue what "XXX" size means....I know it's sad. Keep old people like me in the mix ;) 
    I worked in the fields when I was a child to buy my figures when they had "parts forming hands"...I'm horrible with scale.

    uhmm… i've bought legend figures at that size and smaller for twice the price or more. only a handful of KOs would be as low as $12! :p

    Which figures were that? I've never owned a single orginal Hasbro Transformers when it first came out, but I did have a 12" Action Man figure with real hair and movable eyeballs, so if you are familiar with that, you can also guess how old I am.

    Btw, Voyager = Siege Prime/Meg's, MP carbots, GT Constructicons...or a tall can of beer.

    I imagine with shipping and online retailer markup, it might be around $20 or more.

    For reference, MFT Blaster is the same price on Taobao. ShowZ is selling it at $22.

    Almost ALL of them sadly, lol. At least the larger size figures like Prime, Sunstreeker, Grapple and Inferno, the Seekers. Of course, there were some because of the shooting gimmick, maybe give them a pass? But the biggest disappointment for me were the seekers. Mind you I was a kid and thought WHAT...I have to stick on the fists? Lame! ;)

    Look at the pic with the 30cm x 22cm cutting mat in the background. I think these guys are at least 15-20cm/6-8".

    Edit: ah, so the pics with the exact dimensions show up. Very cool for $12 a pop...

    i was interested in the monkey and the pig, but will hold off until in hand reviews to decide. a little concerned about quality. also the lack of paint apps on the truck alt for pig is a little disappointing.

    These guys are cool for what they are, but the 'organic', flesh-toned robot modes aren't for me. Perhaps WJ could revisit these later and give us something closer to the originals. For now, at least, I'm out.

    Pre-order prices sitewide on Taobao seem to have almost doubled to 129 yuan after a few days. Not sure why that is.

    Also, found Chinese video reviews of main 4 characters. Videos are only a few days old, but according to the reviewer, what he has are the samples and not the final product, so some parts are not painted yet:

    Just got my set from sirtoys. They’re a bit fiddly but look great. Just need new heads for some of them.
