    Trying to resist making purchases that have anything to do with AoE or TLK is becoming difficult.

    RMB is Chinese Yuan, converts to roughly $575

    It's 3998 Chinese yuan, so more like $574...

    Edit: Sorry, I was beaten to it by a minute :)

    Beautiful. But at likely over 600 dollars, I cannot justify it. Even more so because I'd have to, most likely, buy it without being able to see it and handle it first hand.

    Alot to spend on something I can't "try" before I buy, as beautiful as it is.

    This thing looks sick, but it’s too bad we keep getting THIS VERSION. Everywhere I look it’s something with this design—the most humanoid, non transformer looking transformer evar. But it sure is a beauty.

    That is hella pretty. ...hella pretty.
    I\'m usually not super into action figures of transformers unless they go the extra mile.  And just look at him go!

    Okay there\'s no way in the universe I\'m budgeting that beast, not without lotto or some miracle at work, but what dreams I\'ll have. 
    What scale would 20\" play ball with?  6\" or 3.75\"?  Either way there are Acid Rain soldiers that would look very nice next to him.  Oh man, the thought of that.  Seeing ST Commander with Diaclone made my heart skip.  I hope we get pics to that effect sooner or later.

    As beautiful as this is, I prefer ROTF prime.

    Something about Transformers looking MORE like a Vehicle than a suit of Armor with a Human inside.

    So many high quality renditions of this version. There's the love for the more iconic 1-3 Prime? DOTM will always be the best version IMO.

    I think we will see one from 3A’s new deluxe scale figures which also include diecast.

    Probably won't be coming from Soap Studios, but 3A has the license for all TF movies and the just out out a fan poll that showed Jetpower Prime from TF2 in the lead on who's coming up.

    I do hope Soap Studios makes more. This is kind of a miss because like I said, there's quite a few Optimus figures. This would be my 3rd high quality non transforming figure of this design. But there is a massive cast of bots that never get a chance to have a figure.

    Thank you, I thought I was the only one who noticed this. The ears are totally backwards.
