    Why does any company make anything?
    ...Because they think people will give them money for one? :sly: 

    and based on the responses here, that seems likely

    This would be an instant purchase in any of the iterations of this mold that weren't the size of my friggin' dog.

    This would be bought if it was normal MP10 sized. Too much money and too big for my collection.

    people are more likey to buy something if it is a limited edition , some of those will be people wanted to flip it for more money than the original retail which 9 x out of 10 works flipping it for more because if something is hard to get it becomes more desirable to a collector

    Cool. Don’t have the space for him but this deco really works. On a vaguely related note, there is another robot Captain America coming:

    Just because something is limited doesn't make it valuable. There are FT G2 dinobots still around at retail that have been out for years and those were LE500. And in that example G2 was actually a thing where this isn't...

    yeah but sometimes it does just because the ft g2 dinobots didn't rise in value does not mean this won't as it also caters for marvel super hero fans as well as transformers

    "edit" also g2 might have been a thing but it wasn't everyones cup of tea

    As nice as Lewin Captain America Prime looks he sure ain't worth the $420 price tag,that is just ridiculous.

    Its a cool idea but i think the figure has too much blue and the red they used on the feet is kind of ugly. Id prefer a red chrome like or metallic like finish.

    That's not red, that's brown. It's supposed to represent Cap's leather boots. Same with his arms.

    I'd love to own this, just like I'd love to own the original. A toddler-sized Optimus Prime would be fantastic in every variant. Sadly, my wallet denies me this beautiful creation.

    Still... epic.

    i think either @Scourgatron who thought it was purple and @Rdfnd1253 thinking its red are either slightly colour blind or looking on their phones :lol
