    You forget that Hound has special abilities. In fact you conveniently forgot to mention that in that episode the Autobots "combined" to form Menasor using Hound's ability.

    I expect the altmodes to be about the size of the DX9 ones.


    If that's the case I'll be just fine with it.

    It was Windcharger not Hound, that used his magnetic ability to let the autobots form Menasor.

    I assumed he did that deliberately to show what the scale would be based on his estimates from the bot mode comparison.

    But, the original announcment post already has the official side by side comparrison. Yes, I know the alt modes are renders but they already have the dimensions from the CAD. The physical prototypes may or may not be glued in bot mode but all the engineering is complete. There is no reason to dispute the provided side by side comparrison.

    Thank you for reminding me. Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp impersonated Optimus, Ratchet, and Wheeljack. Unless those 3 are the same height disguising isn't much of an arguement on correct scaling. Either that or making the 3 Seekers the same height has been wrong all along.

    Windcharger held them together, but IIRC Mirage took credit for faking Menasor's look, basically they gave Mirage Hound's ability for the episode.

    Are those necessarily to scale? I'm not saying either is correct - personally I'm just going to wait until we get more shots or prototypes.

    So this thread has literally become a 'who can find the most cartoon stills to support their arguement'.

    There's a reason it's futile using the actual cartoon itself to argue scale but I'm sure that won't stop anyone.

    There simply isn't a correct scale. The holy scale chart was a reference for the animators but there's no such official information on heights etc for the G1 guys.
    What ever looks good looks good. I would prefer alt mode to scale with bots being 'close enough to not look stupid' but thats me.

    The animators took the approach of what ever looks good on any given day to suit any given narrative.

    Here's a question, do you guys think they will stagger the releases of the stuniticons with the arielbots?

    I think (for whatever that's worth) they will push the Stunticons to the forefront (meaning at least before Summer ends) and that the Arielbots may get a back seat. I say this based on a history of intense animosity and competitiveness between certain 3P companies. FT tends to want to be the big boy on the block and appears to love stealing the thunder of other companies. Hence, if they want to compete and throw shade they will have to get these out ASAP.

    Your logic is sound but my gut feel is that FT will drag their feet like they always do ... the thing is, they know they don’t have to be first to market ... the whole point of being big boy on the block is that you enjoy the privilege of only ‘showing enough to win,’ as Errol Flynn would say, so prototypes are more than enough to cast a pall and serve purpose ... kinda fucked up to the collector but after Rouge I really want them to get shit right and not do a rush-job ... look at Tesla, when FT half-asses it can fuck the MP market for certain characters for years (same w/Willis to a lesser extent)

    "It's already sold out"

    Repeat that dalianjj mantra for 1000 times.
