    I’m thinking 29cm is with everything fully extended. She’s a hunched over gal and her head should be able to slide down considerably to lower her overall height and most resemble her posture but even then she’s pretty much the same size as Rampage on the show. They’re about shoulder level and then Transmutate has that giraffe neck to take her above and beyond. I think the 10th anniversary BAF May be influencing some people’s perception of her actual show size.
    Either way this is exactly what I’ve been hoping for from a 3P. It’s exciting because I never actually thought anyone would consider this a profitable venture despite the fact a whole lot of us BW fans will jump on it immediately.
    To conclude- I’m in!

    The problem I have with the size is it's incompatible with the figures we have atm. It'd be awesome if we had some Season 2 MP's to go with it but the fact is we may never get them, so having it in scale with these supposed Season 2 MP's is moot. I'm sure most were looking for a suitable alternative to the BaF for their current season 2 shelves

    It's does seem a bit large, but she was no "slouch" in the show (especially when compared in size to Rampage).
    I even remember someone in the show (Rattrap?) mention how huge she was. :) sly2:?)

    But I also agree, it may be spot on since she was hunched over most of the time.
    Either way, she's beautiful, and a beloved character I thought I'd never own.
    The detail is AMAZING!!!

    There you go. Even I didn't remember her being THAT big… But yep, SPOT on.

    I think the Hasbro piece-together Mutate has skewed ALL of our minds on how big she should have been.
    This thing is BEAUTIFUL!!!

    Pre-order up at Show-Z.

    Not too bad, and if I was collecting the BW MP line I would have to get her for sure.

    Just saw this on some over seas preorders. Not sure if this is a copy/modification of the build a figure from the Beast Wars 10th anniversary collection or an original mold. It does come with 3 faces and looks pretty accurate.

    Looks like a heavy mod of the old BaF at the very least but could be a wholly new mold. Hard to tell - the thing was so bug ugly I don't think anyone looked directly at it:

    This looks to be a wholly new figure. There's a video of this Transmutate somewhere. Facebook, I think?

    It/she has functioning pistons in the arms and torso(?).

    Transmutate's design makes me think of the alien newborn variant in the movie, Alien Resurrection. The xenomorph/human hybrid creature. o_O

    She looks great! They just need to fix the colors on her. Don't know what's with the silver. It should just be the same gold color that's on the rest of her.

    I don't know if I love transmutate or hate her... same with the protohumans. The latter kinda piss me off in a good way. Maybe we can get some of them next?

    Do we have any pics of this figure next to retail BW stuff?

    If it comes to that, ping me.

    I was going to mention the Hybrid newborn, and then I realized you got there first. I really wouldn't be surprised if that was its partial inspiration, since the movie came out in 1997, and Transmutate was a 1998 episode. Maybe with a sprinkling of classic grey alien and/or the "alien" Mr. Burns from The Simpsons - The Springfield Files (and it looks like someone beat me to that reference as well...).

    I want it but I also don't want it because it's so big and ugly. But it's also pretty accurate so I want it... I'll wait to see how people like it when it comes out ...
