    Whats the height of the original? 18cm can't leave much of an increase, if it's correct of course.

    Not that it matters too much. I'm getting one either way. This mold looks great and I know it'll be cheap.

    Agreed! If OS'd to MP size, added some minor diecast and articulate the hands, it would be near perfect and an instant buy.

    I think the 18cm picture is wrong, it's not the first time these ko companies put incorrect measurements on their promo material.

    Cheap enough to make a custom repaint with it I guess.

    wish they made the shoulder joints much higher, that was the one thing that keeps throwing me off on the original SS prime, like the shoulder joint seems to low at certain angles

    I believe all these are essentially the same as this which popped up on ShowZ yesterday

    [In Coming] Model Wizard 8616 God of War Optimus Prime Oversized

    That figure was listed as a Pre-Order as of last night.....but despite being labeled incoming still...now appears to actually be in stock. Based on other internet sources for it...I'm inclined to think the stock is actually produced and hit the streets.

    What we do know is Model World IS WeiJiang so hopefully the quality and improvements are there...though I see they didn't fix that atrocious arm kibble. I popped that off the original figure and would here too....if not outright permanently modify it away. That was always the weakest point in one of the better Hasbro figures in years and it looks even worse on the bigger figure.

    The measurements would seem to scale similarly the M01 Evasion (slightly taller?), MPP10 (slightly shorter?) and Black Apple MPM which is the sweet spot for me personally so I'd be pleased. It would also come in an inchish taller than either the ThreeA or Toy World Bumblebee Primes....so as good as the original of this figure was if this one is even in the neighborhood of WJs other figures in build and quality....for 1/3 the price this might be my definitive BB Prime.
