These are pretty awesome. Is $4.33 the price to buy one here in the States, or is that the price in Japan? Also, do the toys really look that good? How big are they? I'd like to see some bigger, better pics.

If the actual toys are nearly as good as the promo photos suggest, I'd love to get all three. They look pretty darn good!

to me they look deluxe size, and that 80's optimus prime is better then the original cuss you can see his hands in his truck mode, how sweet id that. i hope they show more pics and also do a size comparison.

Hey, Star Saber! There's a face we haven't seen in a while! :D

Not trying to be nitpicky, but that's Henkei! Convoy, not Classics Prime. Notice the lack of yellow and the inclusion of shoulder insignias, among other differences.

That Optimus Prime looks suspiciously like the World's Smallest mold. And given the $4.33 retail price, I would expect that the figures are Legends-scale or smaller... so WST seems likely.

My guess is that they've made a couple new molds to fit with the World's Smallest scale, which is just fine with me!

I want them all! Especially Star Saber. I hope these make their way to the plethora of asian shops around here.

I'm going with legends size at the biggest, which suits me just fine. I'm really groovin' on the Star Saber, as I really want some version of the character now that I'm halfway through Victory, the Robot Masters version is impossible to find on ebay, and I'm in the process of buying a house... so that pretty much throws the idea of getting the original right out the window. C'mon candy toy Star Saber!

I hope these figures are about Legends or even Scout size. The few Legends and Scout class figures I have are great. I like their scale for desk ornamentation and just to pick up and carry around for idle transformation.

Ok... the top Prime is a repaint of WST Prime. Does that mean that Takara has made WST Star Saber and Classics Prime? Ye gods, how could Classics Prime WORK at that scale?!?

If they are $4 each and they come with candy, they must be Legend-class at best, but most likely smaller and simpler than Legends. There's no way they'd sell a Scout-size figure with candy for less than half the price of a Scout.

Yeah, these must definitely be new versions of the Henkei Optimus mold. Take a look at the wind vain in robot mode. It appears to be hollowed out, and you can see two prongs for the smokestacks to connect too.

Still awesome for the price, though.

Nope that's not the WST Prime mold, it's got too many details and it's legs are separated, WST Primes legs are just one solid piece of plastic.

I guess these are a little bigger than legends just a teeny weeny bit.
