1/48 scale works out to be 6.5 inches tall, which is not huge. That's been the major issue of contention with this Wave WHAM figures - the price to size ratio. At about 14,800 yen, or about $150 USD, you get a six inch tall ABS and PVC figure. That's right, no metal.Still, it looks awesome! Features opening visor, removable gear that attaches via magnet, and opening air brakes. Due September 2009.
