    Looks like WJ Omega is at least the same height as FT Omega.

    This thing is a solid 2" taller than Terminus. Holy crap.
    Even if I love the price, I may have to go Gabriel (no harm there) just due to display space!

    Definitely getting this.
    If anything, the HasTak version (if and when released) would generally be hollow and in need of numerous upgrades anyway.
    So you're going to have to spend more for the official product to fix the unfortunate but expected issues and short cuts taken.
    Whereas with this, based on Weijiang's track record, you get a cheaper price plus better quality with minimal fixes required.
    It's tailored to the adult collector anyway.
    Common sense really (IMHO).

    It looks a little taller but I don't think it's 2" taller. Maybe 2cm.
    If you look at the CW Devastator and WJ Lubo photo, Lubo's left shoulder (red shoulder), is definitely taller than CW Devy's head.
    And if you look at where CW Devy's head lines up against FT Terminus and compare it with where WJ Lubo's red shoulder lines up against WJ Ultima Guard, Ultima Guard seems slightly taller than Terminus. And there's also the fact that in the CW Devy and FT Terminus photo, Devy's legs are spread and bent slightly on the knees so he should've stood taller next to Terminus.
    But this is all speculation until we see the actual Ultima Guard product. I'm suspecting he will be as tall as Fortress Max. I measured my Fort Max at 23 1/4" to the top of the horn/antenna.
    And Terminus was measured to be 22 1/2" in this video

    Put my deposit @ tf-direct.com for this thing. Crossing my fingers that they don't have any major delays.

    I
    Actually WJ looks as tall as FT if not a smidge taller. Again look at where Devy's head lines up with FT and where Lubo's shoulder (which is taller than Devy's head) lines with WJ.

    But until we have both of them side by side, this is all rough approximations.
    Ultima Guard is probably not going to be 60cm as advertised since most of them fall short to advertised height. Maybe a cm short which is around Fort Max height.

    Made these two comparisons, i don't particularly care but just for curiosity, they aren't perfect as the ft is taken on a wider lens not straight etc. Why i made two graphics.

    Well thing is damn big/tall no disputing that. I still think the ft is taller just and also more mass easily, i think this comparison is being kinder to the weijang.
    Anyway time will tell - proper comparison. :thumb

    In the end all of this Omega are probably within one inch in height, so for me it's not a deciding factor. Dx9 won the first round and from the pictures it doesn't seem that Weijiang could top it quality wise but their Omega needs only to be good enough given the huge price advantage.

    The clearest comparison of heights b/w FT Terminus and CW Devy is the closeup photo of Sixo's review of FT Terminus because they are in very close proximity, almost facing each other. The Red line shows your previous comparison which is clearly not true. The green line is where Devy's shoulder properly lines up to Terminus.
    FTGiganticusvsCWDevy1.jpg


    Your photo, like you said, is taken at a weird angle where Terminus is closer to the camera. And you also forgot to take into account that the yellow section on Terminus' shoulder/traps is smaller compared to the yellow section on Ultima Guards. That's why the red section just underneath Ultima's head is almost square compared to FT's rectangle shape. Also Ultima's torso looks longer than Terminus' which could probably account for the height difference.

    This amateur detective work is ridiculous. Trying to figure out relative heights based on random pictures of varying quality taken at different angles and poses will just lead around in circles without ending in any real answer. Just wait until there is a photo of them standing next to each other and you will see which one is the tallest.

    It is not silliness, man! It is geek detective work! No definite number but I think its fair to say it is a bit taller at the least. :)

    I never, ever agree with dustball, but this will be the first time. He's right.

    There's no point in speculating and wracking our brains to measure up a toy that isn't in hand. Not to mention, he's not standing straight up, which will add to his height once he does.

    Here's the thing, whether he's as tall as Titan Class, or taller, he's going to be roughly $150.00, shipped, once he hits retail.

    Let's focus on that, we can give a toss about the size later.

    I disagree. I appreciate the size detective work. For those deciding whether this is a good alternative to Fanstoys and dx9, any info on the size is helpful and, from the picture analyses, I'd say the preliminary conclusions about his height definitely hold water. I'm betting he'll be pretty damn close to tg height.
