I was about to point out a video review of the old Takara version. But no one seem to have bothered to make any comparison shots! At least, I know it's 4" tall so it's scout size.

It's about the size of a Scout/Legends toy.
Voyager is to Deluxe, as this Prime is to Legion. ;)^

So, that's a G1 style Cyberverse Optimus Prime box set for 184$CAN (141$US) total with taxes.
Oh joy.

That price is really "French translation for late". #-o

Didnt they? I thought they doomed the entire brand and it wasnt profitable in the states again until Beast Wars came along.

It was a combination of factors, really, and Action Masters was I think a relatively minor one.

It didn't die out over in Europe, Japan, and Australasia.

In all fairness a figma made of die cast with a ton of parts and a (comparatively) huge playset base would cost a lot more than $100.

If it did die in Europe, G2 would have never gotten off the G1 re-release track. ;)

Dang, shorter than I remember! He is pretty decent as a "mini-MP", but the transformation is a bit fiddly due to the his size.

Sure the scale sucks but it's a good figure (emphasis on "figure". Also, when I bought the fig (first released a few years back) he cost a little more or less US$ 50.00 (but it's 2ndary market prices has appreciated waaaaaaaay too high). By the time I realized he was worth it, I lost the opportunity to get a freebie WST Hotrodimus included with the first batch orders.

Also, he was no different from THS-01. Both were weenie minis but chalk full of accessories.

There were even plans by KOers to upsized him but too bad. If he was like Deluxe or Voyager? He would be awesome!
