Keep in mind that it's the prototype, and prototypes are often much larger than the finished product.

Not for Hasbro. Back at Celebration, they had a guy working on the sculpt for one of the then upcoming Star Wars figures (can't remember who). I was surprised that it was the same size as a regular figure, and asked him why he wasn't sculpting it on a "2-up" scale, which I thought was the industry standard.

 

He told me that Hasbro uses a 1:1 scale on ALL their figures. That way nothing is lost or muddied in the shifting of the scale for production. So unless that practice has changed, what you're seeing is actual size.

 

My best guess is that he should be right about eye level with G1 Ultra Magnus.

he does seem to be bigger than the g1 prime. love the way he looks, i just hope he isn't too limited.

 

If he really is the 20th anniversary figure (which we all know he is, but it's not official so I say "if"), then that means Hasbro has spent a lot of money on him. For them to spend that much money, and then make him hard to find doesn't make sense.

 

There's rule in retail that says that the more exclusive something is, the higher the price. Hasbro sells us reissues at $30-$40 a pop, and those are just slightly retooled figures. For them to sell a NEW figure for $50, with that kind of detail and at that size...well, let's just say that they'll probably be EVERYWHERE. This isn't going to be a find one for yourself and scalp another on eBay for the poor schlub who didn't find one...this is going to be for the enjoyment of all.

 

Besides, it's not like there are other things to fill the case with. It's a casepack of one. Even Mattel couldn't mess that up, so Hasbro certainly won't. Cases usually START at 6 figures per. That's a lot of Prime.

I would not expect any new info on Prime, or anything really, untill OFTCC next week.
