How big is it? Is it one of those things that looks really big but actually isn't?

Speaking of big I would like to see Astro Toy to get a RAH sometime if you have $300 laying around Wink

And aw, no feature about the contest last time like said.

When you feel up to tackling it again, you should make a video of the transformation. Smile But that was pretty impressive even in stills!

This looks so cool. I admire the toy's designers for not compromising. Just a question though, how big is it compared to other figures? Just trying to get a sense of its size.

Hey, sup everyone. Seems I accidentally left out the size, huh! It's 18cm (7 inch) in the robot form, not gigantic but taller than most of the stuff on my shelf. Figmas are usually 10-14cm, Super Robot Chogokin is 12-15cm tall. The transformation into the car really packs it in tight, so obviously it shrinks a bit. cm are really more useful for small-scale measurements like these, huh.

Also, in the time since I wrote this, this figure has again sold out at Amiami. At $170. http://www.amiami.com/​top/​detail/​detail?​gcode=​FIGURE-​003227&​page=​top

I was wondering where the winners of the contest were, too... and I found it, in the comments section of the previous article. Odd choice. But here it is animenewsnetwork.com/bbs/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=4285300#4285300
