    I'm thinking about this one as well. Looks awesome. Seems a bit more stocky than the movie Prime, but also seems more solid than the Dual Model Kit version. Of course, I would love to own both.

    Find myself under similar dilemma with the Revoltech Iron Man figures...the Hot Toys 1/6 scale are just really expensive.

    Had zero interest in G1 Revoltech toys, but these have definitely changed that. Like someone else said, this may be my first Revoltech purchase. If he is bigger than the standard Revoltech, that'd be even better :)

    Gorgeous. I'm not sure if I should get this or wait until the model kit goes on sale. The only thing I don't like about it is how it seems that it doesn't come with an extra unmasked face, which the model kit has. Also the model kit will be more fun to build and put together myself.

    The Sci-Fi Revoltechs are bigger than the early Revoltechs. They clock in at 6 inches at least. Some, like the Alien Queen, are bigger.

    These are usually between $30-$40, depending on the figure. I think Optimus will be closer to the $40 range.

    If you look on HLJ or Amiami, they usually have a preorder discount of around 20%. This is your best time to buy them. Something like Optimus won't be around very long. At least not long enough to go onto massive discount.

    Why are people comparing this with the Dual Model Kit version?
    The DMK is the size of a leader class figure, whereas this will be 14cm tall; that's barely up to his waist!

    Cost, mainly. Some folks can't or won't afford the high markup on the DMK Prime, so the Revoltech version is a good alternative, on a smaller price and scale for an equally cool looking and very poseable Prime (neither can transform, so they have that much in common as well).

    Personally, I'm getting both. DMK Prime will look great posed in a fighting stance against Movie Masterpiece Starscream, while Revoltech Prime will look awesome (and nicely scaled) fighting against my custom painted DOTM Deluxe Starscream. =)
