    I wonder which of the DOTF Transformers figures have the most accurate to the movie?

    Some particular ones I'm not to sure about are:

    Shockwave
    Megatron
    Sentinel Prime

    Megaron and Shockwave arn't. Shockwave's head is MUCH higher up, and not between his shoulders.

    Some I can think up are:

    Topspin
    Starscream
    Barricade
    Ironhide
    Ratchet

    I actually find Megatron and Shockwave to be some of the least accurate toys in the line. Megatron might be decent I guess, but Shockwave's proportions and colors are way off.

    Whoops. I misread the post. I thought the OP meant what DoTM figures are accurate, as in CG-I model.


    But still, Shockwave and Megatron arn't color accurate.

    Yes, Shockwave should be a much darker bluish-purple, and Megatron should be a little lighter colour then what he is, with a few little silver highlights coming out here and there.

    Colour-wise, probably;

    Starscream
    Ironhide
    Crankcase
    Ratchet
    Bumblebee
    Topspin
    Leadfoot

    Megs and Shocky may be off-model, but their Voyager toys are still very cool and fun to fiddle with. If the rumors are to be believed, their Leader class figures should be in the works for the DOTM followup toy line (next year hopefully) and those should (again hopefully) be much more CGI accurate (much like HFTD Leader/MP Starscream).

    That said, Deluxe Starscream, Barricade, and Crankcase seem to do an adequate job with accuracy. Not 100%, of course, but not bad.

    ^yeah,& since shockwave was probably bigger then prime,it may also be in scale with HFTD BB Prime.
