    actually that's pretty cool. He should come with a Megatron pistol too, and the 86 movie outfit jumpsuit. Imagine if the also did the bot armor for him too!!

    Somehow Dr Wu managed to do better faces for their tiny figures, including the exo-suit add-ons that are just a head and about 5mm tall.

    Probably the result of not having any caucasian skulls to reference. They certainly tried though. If anything he looks like an Amuro Ray knock off.

    I didn’t want to say it but the eyes definitely don’t fit the characters ethnicity. The face and jaws are also way too thin - spike has a much more rounded head and face. They’ve also managed to completely mess up Spikes classic 80’s mop hairdo.

    From Lewin's FB page. It looks like they are planning on making a 1/6 scale Spike. If this takes off, they can make the other human characters too. C7C67C13-31CE-42D7-986B-27A924D17036.jpeg 2E2FDD72-5E69-449C-B18F-07CC02866E93.jpeg

    That's what I'd put him with if I got him.

    Whoa! This is pretty cool. I don't think I'd ever buy it, but none the less, looks really neat.

    I think 2006 Spike would have to have a new head sculpt as one is a 17 year old Boy and the other one is a Grown Man with a wife and kid.

    It looks like a pretty good figure, though the face feels a bit off. I think it's the eyes and possibly the mouth or facial structure needs a little tweaking. I wonder what the profile looks like.

    Really though this seems like an odd scale choice for figures of humans from Transformers. I’d prefer something that scales with a TF line. I guess for people who collect 1/6 scale figures and want TF characters in their collection this is good... are there many out there in that market?

    Thank goodness Circuit Breaker is Marvel. Lesser chances of making her.

    At 12 inches, this is way oversize to put next to their giant MP10. This is HotToys territory.

    At 1:12 however, which is about 5/6 inches, this is accurate.

    In truck mode yeah, but in robot mode it works pretty well.
    Plus it would go with the 80's theme I have going on with one of my shelves.

    Yeah, that would risk incurring the wrath of the Mouse.

    Hmmm... does that mean Circuit Breaker is a Disney Princess now? :lol

    Well at least SOMEBODY is trying to make detailed figures of the human TF characters. I’d prefer 6” or 3.75” scale, though. The sculpt here doesn’t look bad in comparison to the pic of the animation model shown. And I think a couple of the main reasons it looks a bit off is because we’ve never really seen Spike in 3D or with realistic shading, as far as I can recall, anyway.

    Edit: I also just noticed that the render and the prototype are different designs. Maybe the render design will look better in physical form than the prototype shown.

    Looks more like Daniel to me. But I don’t know what I’d do with something this large.
