    I think it fits in with MFT nicely though

    It's a deluxe figure, basically.

    This height creep needs to be kept in check.

    There were legends class figures, then someone made some legends+ of bigger bots to be in scale with the smaller figures, then someone else made legends+ of smaller figures to be in the same class as the newer figures, and then someone OS KO this and that and it just creeps up and up to the point where we're calling a figure that's over 5" tall legends. With the exception of things like combiners, city bots, and truly large characters, lets try and have some actual standards as to what a legends class figure of a regular 'bot is.

    Except it's not 'to each their own though' when we're posting on a "Master Thread" and trying to decide what figures should be listed as Legends figures on the first post.

    Would Soundwave or Soundblaster look better with Galvatron, Cyclonus and Scourge

    Deep Space Arsenal has updated the pricing to $90 + S&H (which was about $10 for me) and you can order one through eBay.

    He's also posted a teaser that he's working on a legends scale Space Bridge.

    Is it a space bridge, or is it the future stall of galacticly loved energon itamae Spin Vulture, and his amazing tempura and sushi energon, @IronMagnus? :p 

    Now, I found some small LED paper lanterns, but at 3” they might make them seem more like Lantern Blimps to the Iron Factory and DX9 figures. And, that’s fine, because this is a terribly silly idea. Though I haven’t found any lanterns that weren’t just a solid color :oops: 

    Meanwhile, @Overlord Galvatron, I’d go with Soundwave if you’re aiming for Sunbow/IDW or Soundblaster if you’re going for more of a Headmasters/Victory feel.

    On the other hand, it also depends on whether or not it’s easier to get Mech Planet’s Sound Board over DX9’s Sonic Wizard.

    I had considered the Mech Planet Soundwave since I liked the bulkiness of their Wave a little bit more initially, and because I thought the ankles on DX9 looked a little funny with the ball pegs exposed. Then again, the difference in cassettecons was the real deciding factor in my purchasing Sonic Wizard, since I really cats, as my current Keyboard Ravage avatar from the end of More Than Meets the Eye can attest to ;3

    But, I was quit pleasantly surprised by how limber DX9 Wave is...

    So, I really love Garfield Soundwave and Friends :D

    So have we decided what an appropriate height for a combiner is? 10 inches or so?

    No good answer because it depends.

    If you want the individual bots to be in scale, then you're going to end up with Hulie and War Giant sized combiners.

    If you think that mass shifting should make the entire bot bigger once combined, going to need to use CHUG scale combiners.

    Could these work for Legends? They seem small enough.
    Possibly even work with the Command Center as flooring and walls.

    Possibly.. I have a couple sets of Zeta Toys - Zeta EX - Display Base - Orange in black and orange in my stack... I plan on using black for ground and orange for walls. Even though the Ark was all orange, all the time, I think IRL it will be better to have some contrast.

    Msg him on Facebook. I believe he can ship outside the US for extra shipping.

    thanks but I'll probably set up my decepticon base "New Darkmount" first since it's more on the way although it will cost a bit to cover an entire wardrobe interior with decepticon base panels.
    Speaking of which I plan on doing a seperate base for the post movie decepticons (Galvatron, Cyclonus, Scourge, Nemesis prime who is there because he just fits, a quintesson, an allicon and sharkticon most other season 3 and 4 decepticons will be with the others like Megatron's crew) what kind of a base should it be a destroyed ash covered wreck like chaar or an advanced high tech decepticon base like Chaar on headmasters
