    Yeah, but TT will probably shrink him. Big Powered felt pretty underwhelming in terms of size to me, for the money. It was a big enough turn off that I haven't bought anymore since then.

    yeah.
    I actually went all in because a cousin gave me a copy of the game "Gundam Next Plus" and I got so curious about all the playable characters
    so, instead of doing the logical thing and googling them, I watched all the gundam shows in it.
    Which ranges from the first one up to unicorn hahaha

    Are you talking about Diaclone reboot big powered? Because they didn't shrink him at all, the original is about the size of a voyager transformer.

    It was apparently revealed along with the Nu Gundam back at a show where no photography was allowed, but it was there.

    Really? It seemed like when I saw pictures of the original, it was much larger than that. But I'll defer to you on this since. I did try "Googling" images of the original before posting to be sure but nothing was coming up for me...just pics of the revival series.

    I had to Google it as well, I found one of it next to Diabattles V2 and they're pretty much the same size.
    I'll see if I saved it anywhere.

    I did find this. I suppose if he did shrink, it wasn't by much. I guess for the $250 I paid, I expected more.

    The mech designs for the Unicorn anime were gorgeous. Sunrise has a racket on mechanical designers in JP lol

    I especially love the older suits that were redesigned for that series, like the old GMs and stuff.

    Oh man I'm so excited for Thundercracker & Barricade! They look so good easily some of the more exciting figures to come out of the later half of Siege.

    He has "to punish and enslave" written in cybertronian on his door wings.
