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.

At least they're better than HA figures. :lol:

Man, I really wish I could get Star Saber, but he's just too expensive.

The Race Queens are Microman figures using the Micro Action Series body. They're 3.75" tall.

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.

dagnabbit, the more i see of Star Saber the more I like. He comes with the blue girlie, yes?

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?

Leave it to TakaraTomy to have Transformers and Microman crossbreed again :lol: Would those figures be in scale with 1:32 though?

No way.

They'd have to be like the size of MP Spike to fit inside the toys' Vehicle modes. ;)

Speaking of Microman... I wonder if they have ever considered doing pre-Transformers reissues. Diaclone is currently 30 and Microman will turn 40 in a couple of years. Plus, we have less than 3 years (for Japan) until they celebrate 30 years of Transformers there.

And yes - Atop of a few Transformers that I'd like to see be placed in the Encore line... I would love to see the Diaclone line get some love, even if they become Toy Hobby or e-HOBBY exclusives. My collection needs some of that kind of lovin'. :lol:

But with this... Lets just say that I am glad I did not preorder. Just not feeling anything when it comes to the final product. >:oP

Starsaber would've been perfect if he was in Convoy's alt colors, and vice versa. But that's just my opinion.

O well, Saber is on the maybe list. My Asterisk and KP girls are getting lonely ;;)

True dat. Although he could use a bit more white on the chest, maybe.

So OP's "Lady" was inspired by an actual race queen?

Yup. Misaki Takahashi, to be specific.

Thanks for the info!

My Japanese is pretty rudimentary especially when it comes to Kanji, so I could only make out the characters Taka(something) Mi(something). :lol:

I think she actually looks prettier than the figure. Or maybe it's just the lack of ball joints? :P

I think it's just the manufacturers managed to hide the articulation points better on humans, and to be fair, they are a much larger scale.

soooo tempting, but as I can only afford one, I'll pick the character I don't have many versions of already
