    OK, I'd say I like big car, big plane, big train, big house, big room, big yard, skyscrapers and crowds etc.

    For toys, especially figures, I would like to keep them as small as possible. Because that's what they normally should be. If they're small and detailed enough, I'll be keen to get one.:D 

    What do you think? Am I wrong?

    Small is fine, as long as it's detailed/painted well.

    I just got the Micromaster Aerialbots and I'm pleased as hell with them. I want to get the WST Dinos and dig out my MM Constructicons next. And I've got the Classics minicon animals attached to my Botcon Alpha Trion and they look a lot cooler than vehicles would.

    So in conclusion, little TFs FTW!

    I like small figures when done well. I always had a soft spot for the G1 cassettes. But damned if MP Ops and Megs aren't pretty damn cool though.

    I like smaller scale toys. I think it also helps to keep most of a toy line smaller so when they do make larger characters/transformers, like Primus, Unicron, ML Apocalypse, Glactus, and so on, it makes them seem that much larger.

    As long as the detail remains good, and I would like scale to be keep in mind, I'm pretty happy.

    I care as much about the size of toys as most guys here care about the size of boobies.

    I like how larger scale stuff displays, they really catch your eye. But I'm really not picky overall. A well made item is a well made item, regardless of scale.

    Big. No doubt.

    The leaders, Prime and Megs, should set the standard for how big or small the others should be in any given line. With the Classics line they pretty much got it right. Too bad I prefer MP Prime and Megs to their terrible classics counterparts.

    My army of Revoltechs should be the obvious answer, all action figures should be between 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 inches tall.

    I prefer then ML sized for the larger robots but the smallest I can tolerate is the 3 3/4 inch G.I. Joe size...anything smaller would lave to be amazing cool like Bandai's Gundam Hcm Pro 1/200.

    I tend to prefer the more midrange and larger size figures (voyager-ish) though it really depends on the toy and character. There are some toys that work really well in there respective class sizes and some that don't and that maybe should be in others, bigger or smaller.

    Overall I really find myself on average not digging the smaller toys (basics mostly and more increasingly deluxes). Like in most of the TF lines since BW/BM I find myself passing on 90% of the basics and smaller stuff (LoC for example) as they really don't interest me all that much except for the few odds and ends (Cyb Scrapmetal for example). However on the other hand there's a lot of stuff in G1 and BW in the smaller class sizes that I really like.
