That's noe weird thing :) Interesting though.
Might pick it up if it arrives here in Norway. Just affraid it'll cost a fortune as all the other TF's.

No much smaller. I believe he's Deluxe scale but Voyager price tag.

Eh, he looks like one of those T800s without the skin they like to feature at the start of the Terminatuh movies. Find the gimmick nifty, tho. If it really is Voyager priced I'd hit it.

OMG :shock:
I am happy they are (finallly) bringing it out, though doing so at the END of the movie waves and the beginning of Animated, I hardly think we are gonna find allot of them, if they will even become availeble in Europe!!

*will hope for the best*

Interesting concept but I'm just not feeling this. And why the heck are his eyes red?

Is there any information out there on whether or not these will see retail release in North America?

I love the idea, looks like a lot of fun.

I like the concept. It's very neat. But, the figure looks very awkward IMO. I guess you can only so much with the idea as a toy.

I have him and Bumblebee on preorder with BBTS. I really like the idea of these figures, I hope they do some more.
