    Was just thinking, between MP Grimlock and the new FOC Grimlock, not to mention the Classics Grimlock... we have a lot of Grimlocks. That said, we DON'T have many of the rest of them. In fact, I think its just G1 and Animated, and even still Animated was missing the other two.

    So if a third party group, or even Hasbro, were to start making them, What scale would you want them to be at? All deluxes? All voyagers? All MP? MP a smidge too big, why not go Ultra? Or some mix of those?

    While originally I wanted all MP or Ultra sized, given that I love MP Grimlock, I feel like a Swoop of that size would be too big-in fact, MP Grimmy is a bit too big, all things considered. That said, I don't think Swoop and Grimlock should be in the same scale, so suddenly a mix of Deluxe and Voyager sizes have started to sound pretty good. Specifically:

    Voyager Grimlock
    Voyager Sludge
    Deluxe Swoop
    Deluxe Snarl
    Deluxe Slag

    To be honest, I'm hoping TFC does make their combiner, with G1 heads and color schemes, as they feel just right to me. Those are still coming out, right? So how about you?

    Optimus Prime was taller than most autobots by a large margin except for Skyfire. However, The DINOBOTS were always extremely larger than the regular autobots including Optimus Prime.


    Master Piece Sludge
    Ultra Swoop
    Master Piece Snarl
    Master Piece Slag

    Ditto this. If not official, though, I'm fine with a third party doing it. Probably iGear would be best...

    They should just do them at the MP scale and make Swoop a little smaller & Sludge a little bigger in dino mode especially.

    I'd say MP, because if you look what they did with Sideswipe he is inscale with Prime, so they don't actually have to be the same sizes if they are MP, but make them all scale to MP grimlock i.e swoop would be slightly smaller etc.

    MP size works perfectly, the dinobots are suppose to tower over all of the autobots

    in scale and style with mp grimlock. that is a thing of beauty. swoop snarl and slag can be a little smaller, but sludge should be at least equal to grimlock in size.

    Yeah, but I'd be happier if they varied in size individually.

    Sludge being the largest, then Grimlock. Snarl and Slag about the same height in bot mode and Swoop a little shorter. But that's just me.

    they can vary the MP size, but they need to be MP all the way,classics is just too small to look dangerous as a T-rex hasbro/Takara need to get of their collective butts and finish the dinobots and stop with the kids don't like dinosaurs crap..what kid wouldn't want dinosaurs that transform into robots??

    I like Voyager as a 'base' size for Grimlock, Slag, and Snarl, with Sludge as Ultra and Swoop as Deluxe, or perhaps Deluxe-ish with the wings making up the voyager scale.

    If MP is going to be the definitively scaled collector's grade toys Takara says they are going to be, then I say make all of the Dinobots for the Masterpiece live and scale them accordingly. Obviously Grimlock and Sludge would be the two biggest based on their dino modes and the rest would scale smaller as they are smaller dinosaurs. picking a size class feels like they cant vary in size and therefore look like they never fit in with any line. and i believe Takara is scaling things as real life as they can get with their new MP line which is another reason why Sideswipe is as small as he is next to prime.

    Yeah MP all the way. Particularly if we're talking 'G1' Dinobots, since that's the only real G1 line these days. The fact that MP Grimlock is slightly smaller than he technically ought to be just makes him able to double up as a Classics Grimmy as well, so that's another bonus to doing them at that scale.

    EDIT - Freakily Xcaliber and Deathshead both posted 'MP all the way' while I was typing - I hadn't seen those posts! Just goes to show, great MP minds think alike!

    - G1 designs/MP styled, bigger in size than MP-10 (and yes, that includes a new Grimlock).
    - Modern designs/Classics styled, Voyager/Ultra depending of the character (that will probably be covered by iGear someday).
