Revoltech Ultra Magnus is sweet! But....

I had no clue that he would be so freaking tiny! He's maybe 4 1/2 inches tall when standing straight up. Great posability but I really wish he would have been at least in league with a deluxe size figure. Especially for the $25+ shipping I paid on him. Ah well. Live and learn.

can you do a size comparison pic please? I really dig this revoltech figure, and was wondering how big he would be next to other figures.

I'm actually a bit relieved! I've only just started to seriously collect Transformers, and I'm quickly running out of space.

Plus, an extra poseable figure like this needs room to spread out and strut his stuff.

Well it ended up being Revoltlech Convoy in the packaging (and well Magnus will be tomarrow). I have opened it and I am quite impressed by this figure, I am blown away by its poseability...

Can't wait for magnus the upcoming megatron and the others if/when announced.

All Revoltechs are that tall, they are more on a level with Scout class and Robot Masters figures than they are with deluxe class figures (even the stunted classics deluxes). I should have my Convoy and magnus any day now, cant wait!

I'm having a hard time not buying the entire Revoltech line, these figures are so cool I cant help but want them all.

I really had no idea he was so small. BBTS said he stood 6" tall. If he breaks 4 1/2" he's lucky. I almost feel shafted for the price.

You also have to concider that Magnus was an exclusive. He's more expensive than regular Revoltechs for that reason.

He was the same price as Convoy. If he was more I would have gotten Prime instead. But I figured since they were the same price I might as well break up all the red on my shelves.

Ah well. He's bought.

Says here he was $5 more expensive. Whatever the case $29.99 is a very good price for any revoltech figure.

But $18-20 is much better. Since the west is most familiar with Transformers (followed by Evangelion, I suppose, and Mazinkaiser when you take Mazinger's worldwide appeal into consideration), the Prime and Magnus tend to be slightly higher in price at certain stores compared to one of the Getters or another mecha. Of course, even now BBTS is starting to charge more for a couple of more popular Revoltech figures (Mazinkaiser, Blue Soltic exclusive, Ingram 1, and Dante), but most of them were and still are $19.99.

You look somewhere like Hobby Link Japan, and they're all the same price except for the exclusives.

Seems like they adjusted the price after preorders we're filled. I paid $24.99 for him.
