That's not the standard size, that's an Alternator size Alt.
Unless it is a one up, for detail analysis, this looks like a 1:24 line now.

I have Alt OP in my hands, and he is not the same size.

looks to be roughly 7.5- 8 inches tall.
Thats BT size!

For the sake of establishing proper scale, here are the official dimensions of the box, as provided by Toy Hobby Market:

Width: 220 mm
Height: 210 mm
Depth: 90 mm

Or in Imperial:

Width: 8.7 inch
Height: 8.3 inch
Depth: 3.5 inch

Compared with Alternity boxes, they are larger in Width and Height, but not in Depth. This may indicate they'll be packaged in Robot Mode.

Wait... What? One of my speculations might be coming true?! :-? I have no clue how to respond to this if it is true. :BOOM:

Besides that, it does make me wish I did not miss out on Binaltech Asterisk. And knowing my luck, I might also regret missing out on this as well. :lol:

It does look like a kid is holding it, which would make the toy look bigger than it is ;)

Note that it actually is a small child that is holding it. Size of the box doesn't tell anything and obviously the box is bigger if it comes with that race harlot figure and possibly other extra stuff. Prime AM figures have big boxes as well.

It might be larger scale, but I still doubt that, because of the reasons said like 10 times before so I don't repeat that.

Really. A "harlot"? That really helps us take what you said seriously. :roll:

But yeah... Some of us here own Arms Micron figures and others own Alternity. Some, like me, own at least one of both. So using a kid's hand as a scale does help some of us determine both the size and bulk of the figure. :-?

And even then... I think those who are being serious about the size are not substitute NFL referees. :lol:

just because there is a scooter, does not make it a child, nor small by any means.
It's japan, it's acceptable there.

Besides I've never seen a "Kid" with old beat up long finger hands.

meh, whatever, we will know soon enough.



it's still all speculation.

Site sponsor BigBadToyStore just sent over a new set of images for Takara Tomy's upcoming Super GT Optimus Prime and Star Saber. We finally get to see color images of both figures in their robot modes and the race queen figures that so many of you have been waiting for. The 90mm race queens are fully articulated. Images mirrored below.

The knees and ankles look awful, they hurt the whole look. Yes, articulation good, but there must be a better way, like Barbie doll knees. Less range of motion, but much better appearance.

And speaking of appearances: yowza.

That is all.

Well the race queen figures certainly explain the price hike. Defitnetly getting them now I know I'm not paying silly prices just for a quick retool. :grin:

But 90mm? So they are no way in scale/meant to interact with the TF? I thought maybe we were gonna get something about the size of MP Spike who could ride around in them :D Not complaining though :KREMZEEK:

Saber is pretty.

I thought folks were just being a bit petty about the mold, but now that I've seen in it close to final form, it really isn't that great.

The shins, feet, forearms and hands in particular just don't look good.

Posable Race Queens? THANK YOU TAKARA! That has officially sealed the deal for me.

Though, they could've done better. They're not bad, they just could be better. Still, nothing major to complain about.

Totally getting Prime and Saber. Wonder what Fort Max's Race Queen will look like.

And are the Kiss Player haters rejoicing yet?
