HENGE h010101: Transformable Interior Object

I saw this toy/sculpture back in December on Vinyl Pulse and thought it was kinda interesting. Looks to be made out of some kind polyurethane resin. As you can see in the movie, it transforms from a space ship into a blossoming robot of some kind. The design looks like a love child between Five Star Stories and Gundam. While I think it's pretty cool, even hardcore collectors will balk at the $1,100 price tag. Gadzooks. For this kind of money you could buy the 1:6 Toys McCoy Machinen Krieger figure or the Sideshow Toys Avatar AMP Suit. Either toy a more worthwhile investment than the HENGE IMHO. Still, I admire the fact that this artist went out and cast his own design and make his toy dreams a reality. This kind of thing is priceless.
