Prime is going to stand about 13 inches and Bumblebee will be smaller. Prime has a $120 price tag and Bee is at $50 something.
I'm totally going to do an epic city battle diorama when I get my hands on these. I'm already drawing up the plans.
what i meant before was to drive the point that this product was in fact a kit rather than a statue or a toy, not disdain. i actually rather like them alot!
i cant wait to see what you model freaks do with these guys!

I'd love to see a 'Grand Mastah' modify one to actually transform, myself.

I hope they make a Starscream, Meagtron and Fallen next!

1. Model kit fans would love the details
2. Great source of parts for TF customizers.
3. Make your own Bayformers (scratch built your own armor pieces, attach to frame)
Now all that's left to know is if they come with decals/stickers, and the possible amount of painting required.

the trend with japan kits these days is molding them in color so painting is not required, but recommended for a perfect likeness. im willing to assume stickers or water slide decals will be included for flames/stripes.
1/35 scale puts the kit about the size of a MG Gundam kit, give or take a couple inches, so somewhere in the realm of 8" to 10", close to leader class size if i remember correctly
it is a dual kit, so there are parts included to build prime or bee off of a standard frame.
it is non transformable.
there is no news on it coming with a dvd or any preview of the packaging at all.
pricing is difficult to estimate. i would expect at least a $60 price tag on this guy, but that is just my own educated guess, don't quote me.
i hope this helps clarify any understandings
Um, not really. You can't built them off a standard frame, they are entirely different in size and design. It's not a 2-in-1 kit, since they are sold separately anyway No idea why they mention "Dual", but I guess it's referring to the inner frame design of the kits.
Prime will be about 9.4 inches (24 cm), a little smaller than the leader class Prime. I like how they give him a optional face, but no guns?? Bumblebee has his gun...

No, they can't transform. Your life is now a lie. So is the cake.
