Does NOT transform for $550.00 ?!?
Re: BBTS Sponsor News: Black Friday, Transformers, DC Play Arts Kai, and More! (1532900)

I totaly agree with everyone.
1: This wouldn't even make sense a few years ago when the collectors were throwing money in every direction, now money is tight, even that amasing non transforming Prime is having a luke warm reception.
2: Just like the upand coming non-transforming prime, the original MP Prime, looked amazing in robot mode and did a great job of transforming. You have to dig deep to complain about any sacrafices to the robot mode due to the transformation. The only thing is that this non transforming Prime can have a greater stylisation like the forearms have those extra angles, very reminiscent of a certains comic artosts Prime. But the MP Prime has alot of features from the Matrix compartment, to the lesser known shin vents.
JUST FOR THE PEOPLE WHO NEVER NOTICED, THE ORIGINAL MP CONVOY HAS A FEATURE, PUSH HIM DOWN SO HIS FEET PUSH UP INTO HIS ANKLES EVER SO SLIGHTLY, AND THIS MAKES THE SHIN VENTS OPEN UP.
MP prime has pistons and allkinds of tiny details that are usualy only possible in a non transforming figure.
Which leads me onto the main point, Prime transforms into a truck, we all know what a truck looks like. Scorponok transforms into a robot scorpion. All Renders of scorponok are all based on his toy mode, there is no real world reference, so ll Scorponok has to do is turn into a form that waas designed wih restrictions decades ago. So a transforming scorponok not only is easy, but also has a wide allowance for artistic impression, for not only improving the form but also to make any robot mode sacrafices non existent.
3: A non transforming figure, has to be an amasing figure. So why is this not a great figure. Not only is he not a great robot form to start with, but no artistic improvements seem to have been adressed on the drawing board, and he seems to have weird asthetics, which i can only assume are there becuase he is unstable, and the weird flares are not an artistic impression, as he has no design ques to inspire such design additions. But MP prime did suffer from weight and scale issue. He was shown in poses that if you adjusted his thighs to the same angles, his top heavy weight would push his legs wide open. So I can only assume, the flares are to accomadate stronger ratcheting joinys so that his ankles can perform extreme poses and carry the unbalaced weight. Afterall, paying that much for a posable figure that doesn't transform, and can't pose would be a major mistake.

This appears to be the logic behind non-transforming statues of Transformers:

1. Start with an articulated action figure that transforms from a robot to a vehicle.
2. Remove all articulation.
3. Remove ability to transform.
(Optional: Remove the entire lower half of the figure, and call it a "bust", even though that's not what a bust is.
4. Increase price 1000%.
5. Profit?
