The $800 was the bare-bone converted price, without the meat of the import charges and profit margins. Mmmmmmmm, meat... =P~

I'm paying $800 or more for a figure that doesn't transform, yet it is a Transformer. Didn't Optimus Prime had a cosmotron?

the Optimus Prime Maquette did not transform yet it's very expensive. I'm not complaining about the price on this one. Though I just feel bad because my budget for toys is a 300 USD at max. Must make more money.

While he does look uncomfortably naked without all those panels snapped on, this is an amazingly nice and detailed looking figure. Unfortunately it's a deal-breaker for me... Any Transformer that can't actually transform is, for me, not really a Transformer, or worth collecting. Especially considering this thing's price tag.

My first thought was that there was a Matrix to go in his chest and another one to put on the display base... But if they are one and the same, you're right, this thing must be quite large. I could see how the huge price tag would start to make more sense if that was the case.

It is the same one, this thing is about two feet tall.
The price is due to the size and the fact that this is mostly diecast, plus heavy on paint.


Goddamn that thing just looks better with each pic, I wish I could aford him.

Motto: "**** happens!"
Weapon: Battle Blades
Cant wait for the first review of this figure...

Thus far, it seems like the metal armor is limited to the arms, the front of the legs and hips... Im thinking that MP1 may have as much metal content as this figure does. If that is the case, then I dont think the price is justified... masterpiece voltron, 40th anniversary mazinger z and MP-1 seem like such a bargain comparing their price point at their time of release.

I wonder what an MP-1 like figure would cost nowadays if the masterpiece line had honored that much metal content and size in all of their figures, maybe it would cost $300-450 dollars, who knows...

Cool figure nevertheless, nice display stand. Nice box, kinda like 40th anniversary mazingers, big box with smaller boxes inside to keep the figure and armor and accesories separate and protected...

Very nice! :D

It's crazy, it's huge, it speaks....sure I want one, but that price! Not to mention how insane shipping would be to New Zealand! I second the call for a review or three.

I had a hard enough time convincing my better half that I could get a Generations Metroplex from a friend at $X per pay!

What I did IS uncalled for. Next time, instead of thinking 70 x 7 first I immediately responded to an insulting post with another insult. I should not have stooped to that level. My apologies for not upholding/following the site rules.

I do this on my own volition and no threats of sanctions have been meted/threatened yet. If there is, I accept it (sanctions) whatever the mods see fit to dish out.

Glad I ordered it. Looking forward to it. The engineering is amazing, the details are phenomenal, and it will immediately be the centrepiece of any room I put it into. Completely worth the $800 to me.
