    Yeah, but it's it a real preorder with a final price or is it one of those deposit placeholder pre-orders?

    Yeah, he'll be MPM scale. If I get him (waiting to hear the price), I'll be putting him on my Optimus/Megatron shelf. He'll be the only non-G1 figure on that shelf but he just looks so damned good and is pretty much an updated version of the G1 character so he deserves that honor. Or, if I decide to get the 3A Bumblebee, they can go together on a different shelf.

    That superhero landing pose thankfully proves the knees are indeed double jointed. So he doesn't just bend below the knee cap, but also above it. just looking at how flexable he looks to be as a transforming figure..... just..wow....:buttrock

    Yeah. He's definitely too big to go with MPs/MPMs. He'll go nicely with MPPs though. This will probably be a stand alone for me.

    Toyworld scale. They never got the memo.

    Okay no, that's not right. He is exactly the same height as their TLK optimus prime. They have shown photos and videos of them stood next to each other

    He definitely ain't the same size. BB prime's crotch starts at tlk prime's midsection... Their tlk prime is MPM scale while they themselves have stated that this prime is 3A scale.

    You're right, he is not the same size, but he is only half a head shorter. This screenshot if from their live stream yesterday, so far closer in size than the above scale chart

    Normally I eye roll at scale discussions, but this one bears weight. This figure is way out of scale with MP which makes him an oddity. That said, he's pretty awesome looking. Now we'll see if he ever gets released.

    Perspective could have a lot to do with it. Also, the scale is perfect for me, as I want to get the WJ/BA MPM OS KO heavily modified prime, so this is about the same height, and will fit right in.

    If this guy is as big as MPP10, I wonder if the MPP10 trailer will fit him size wise as well

    I wish he was smaller though(mp10 size would be fine imo)

    Can I wait until it releases and reviews go up before I decide to purchase or are ToyWorld releases limited enough that they sell out in pre-order phase?

    i'm curious what the extent of the ab articulation is, hopefully there is a bit of back and forward
