    That looks better than I expected, and at that size, I think it's a buy. Of course, I've collected all the molds from SWTF, so I guess I'm a fan of the line.

    Episode III.

    These "basic" size SWTF are not appealing enough to join their larger counterpaerts. The only one I want is the Star Destroyer.

    Looks surprisingly good, but honestly, those pictures made me want Windcharger more than Grievous.

    I can see what they tried to do & I appreciate it - but not really feelin' grievous here...

    Maybe if they'd balljointed each arm separately, kept his twiggy frame from Star Wars & gave him his large lifeless eyes - but as is... no.

    The size comparison is what I had on hand without going to my display and picking something out. :lol

    When the pics and info of smaller crossover bots came out I was hoping for them to be about the same size as deluxes instead of the chunky and oversized ones they started out with. But going all the way down to scout/cyberverse size? Not sure about this.

    Oh wow those are way too tiny for my taste. I would've loved them deluxe scale. Oh well, not a fan of the SWTF toyline anyways... More MarvelTFs please! D:

    So, you got Grievous at Target? Do you have the DPCI number from the receipt?

    I actually already have one of those from years ago. It's not Cyberverse, but it's a mini-falcon playset.

    Size wise, more Cyberverse Commander than Legends class!

    The commanders are essentially legends though.. SLightly more articulated and larger legends.. but legends none the less

    I disagree. Take Megatron for instance. Cyberverse Megatron is almost the size of many scouts from ROTF, as tall as RTS Windcharger, and almost as articulated as well. The only thing really missing from Megatron that Windcharger has is neck articulation.

    Hatchet likewise is pretty huge, so is Sentinel Prime and Optimus. Sentinel and Optimus are more closer to upscaled Legends, but Hatchet is a Scout figure through and through. Powerglide is smaller than Megs, but he's as articulate as a Scout, minus head articulation.

    I feel Commander is the balance between Scout and Legend. Not quite one, not quite the other. I think to say that Commander is just a bigger, more articulated Legends figure is doing them a disservice.

    I'll be getting it. I've never bought crossover because of price and look but for 8%, I'll take the plunge.
