Bandai, stop forcing yourself on my wallet before I call the police! I don't remember dropping soap!
Wow...idiotic? Really? I was referring more to the size, not how many parts have been crammed into the mech...though actually, now that I look at it closely, I still don't see anything that intricate. "60 breakable parts?" Do you plan on transforming it with your feet? It looks like rather straight-forward to me. The front of the car collapses to make the cockpit so there isn't any transformation required for the driver area, the hood and front bumper unfold to make the legs in what looks like about two steps, and the side doors swing back to reveal the arms. I stand by my statement, there's nothing here that's any more complex than what I could get in a $15 transformer (I was being generous when I said Leader class, and that's coming from a guy who prefers Sentai mecha). Does it look nice? Very! Would I like to have it? Yes. I'd love to support Bandai so that they'd hopefully make more mecha in the Figuarts line, but the truth is that there is absolutely NOTHING here that would warrant a near $500 price tag. To each his own I suppose.
*EDIT: My apologies, another user clarified Sentai's original post for me... I misunderstood what he meant. I guess that's the downside to reading something online, versus speaking in person where you can hear the tone and inflection of someone's voice. I'm going to leave my original post unedited because I believe that it further explains my opinion...just understand that its not directed toward Sentai's response.
