    I want my Transformers to be pretty well scaled to each other.

    Do you think we'll see a Leader Class Blackout and BoneCrusher?

    Starscream would probably be a Leader Class natural, too.

    I'd really like a Screamer without so much kibble as the Voyager one has underneath it.

    Blackout was an awesome design and I'd really dig having the correctly scaled helicopter!

    Generally, You only see 4-5 leaders for any given line.
    2 Primes
    2 Megatrons
    and maybe 1 different character- Metroplex/ Brawl

    So the chances aren't really in our favor for another leader figure, but it could happen you never know.

    Bonecrusher really needs some larger scale love.

    He is barely larger than Jazz!

    I don't think we'll see it though.

    he's got such a shitty alt form though.

    I'd love to see a leader class ratchet or ironhide

    Bonecrusher probably wouldn't get the Leader treatment since he has so little time in the movie. Blackout would be nice in that size but thats probably not going to happen, either. (like smkspy, said).

    Thats the reason I haven't gotten deluxe Devastator or Bonecrusher. I want them to be to scale.

    I was aiming for Rathcet or Ironhide, because we need another autobot as a leader class to even the sides up. Plus, I think Hasbro didn't do the greatest jobs on those 2. It seems they comprimised because of size restraints

    As much as I'd love to see a Leader class Blackout, we would have heard/seen something by now. A leader class Starscream however, is still possible. They could make one for the sequel.

    The Autobots are in scale to one another, if they were to do leader Ratchet and Ironhide, they'd be too big.

    but they aren't in scale to the current leaders...are they?
    from what I remmeber, ironhide & ratchet were about up to prime's chest or higher, not 1/2 his size.

    No they arent. leader prime is too big, and jazz is too big (should be smaller than bumblebee in both modes)

    Ratchet is pretty much in scale with Leader Prime and Deluxe Jazz/'08 BB, but Ironhide is a hair too small. He's supposed to be a few feet taller then Ratchet with a similarly sized alt mode. But other then that, the 'bots are covered.

    The 'cons however are totally off. For there to be a decent scale with them, Blackout and Starscream would need Leader toys and Brawl and Bonecrusher would need Ultra class stuff. As of now, that's not happening. Though I'd happily settle for a Leader Blackout and Voyager Bonecrusher. :thumb

    oh i see. I thought that in the movie, especially when they are at sam's house, they (ratcher / ironhide/ prime) appear to be just about the same height. Wish i could find a pic.

    There's an official height list somewhere on the forums here. It basically gave the heights of all the bots in the film. Of the Autobots Jazz was the smallest at 14-15 feet, BB was 16, Ratchet and Ironhide were in the low 20s with Ironhide being taller and Prime was a solid 28 feet tall. Bonecrusher and Brawl (the tank) were both 26-28 feet, taller then Ironhide but not prime and SS, Blackout and Megs were all 30-33ish iirc.

    As far as the toys go, '77 BB is shorter then Jazz who is shorter then '08 BB who is smaller then Ironhide, who is smaller then Ratchet who is smaller then Leader Prime. Pretty much the only ones really off are '77 BB and Ironhide, and even then they're not off by that much.

    But the cons are totally screwy =/

    Petition! If Hasbro knows everyone will buy it, they'll make it.

    Online petitions will get you nowhere. And they will only make something of that cost if there's a good chance many, many normal people (not just collectors and fans) buy it.


    Going by film scale, they would have probably been (IF this was a perfect world):

    Supreme
    Blackout
    Megatron
    Starscream

    Leader
    Optimus Prime (making him any smaller will just compromise his design)
    Brawl
    Bonecrusher

    Ultra
    Ironhide

    Voyager
    Ratchet

    Deluxe
    Bumblebee/s
    Barricade
    Jazz (too complex for Scout class)

    I would be happy if they made a Voyager Bonecrusher, other than that I am pretty content with the current movie line. Although you can sign me up in the Leader Blackout club too.

    Then why don't we have Dispensor yet?

    I want my Dewbot dammit >_<

    I'd much rather a supreme Blackout than a leader, personally...considering how big his alt mode really is. Screamer needs the leader treatment, as does Brawl. Bonecrusher I am kinda torn over...since size-wise he would need to be a leader to be in scale (the Buffalo is fucking HUGE), but by the same token voyager or ultra just seems more fitting for him.
