Still, the accessories and range of articulation make this figure INCREDIBLE. It really does scale well with Legion class figures and IronFactory/War in Pocket figs too. Probably gonna get this on General Principle, even tho I already have the THS Convoy that this is a remake of. I wish they would do some THS Decepticons now!
I wouldn't put too much hope on the Hybrid line being resurrected. This is more hasbro saying "well we were going to do it a couple years ago in a two pack and didn't and we still have the mold so let's finally release it for our 'Chinese year of' figure

Maybe if it hits the bargain bin for $50, like all Platinum releases eventually do.

Does this price drop make this figure more appealing to you, or is it still a bit of a stretch? Let us know in the Energon Pub!

Sad thing is, I bet due to the price a lot of people are gonna think it's some huge, awesome figure at least the size of a Leader or some such and that'll entice them to get it... and then when it arrives at their door they're sorely disappointed.
Honestly I'd just get the Thrilling 30 Legends Optimus if I wanted him in that scale.

But holy crap, that price is RIDICULOUS. I'll wait for clearance and even then, I'm not sure if I'll ever buy. I already have over 9000 Optimuses afterall.

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.
