    It's 'Scamper', Gauss. Scamper.

    What do you think the odds are that we'll see third-party Slammer and Six-Gun for this figure?

    Niiiice find. I'm surprised it took this long if it was in one of the NYTF videos.

    It's still too blurry to really make out but it is a giant step in the right direction.

    Woah nice catch. Although I'm not sure what to make of that bot mode. Vehicle mode looks pretty cool.

    Good eye! I really miss the Scout Size Class. Regardless of my preference it's awesome they included Scamper with Metroplex. This looks to be such an awesome set.

    Yes, but then Sixgun and Slammer will go on sale as a 2-pack?

    Nice i like the look of scamper and i have little doubt if Hasbro doesn't produce slammer and six gun some enterprising 3rd party company shall.

    Honestly i'd not be too surprised if they were already working up designs in case Hasbro does make them.

    While this is good news to say the least, I personally think it's better news that they have officially changed the class size back to Legends.

    I hated saying "legion"...

    From the looks of it he might be commander sized, judging by the fact that he has elbows AND knees. (Then again, so did PRIME Leigon Cliffjumper.)

    I think it's a lot more complex than that.

    Legends was the official size catagory for the Data Discs.
    It is also the offical size of the Optimus/Bumblebee small figures with Targetmaster like Companions.

    So in this case the Legends to compare it too is the new Optimus and Bumblebee toys.

    So until those come out it's a bit hard to nail down a size unless someone has a side by side comparisons someplace.

    The new Legends are quite expensive though so I don't think they are 3" Legion scale toys.... I fully expect Legions will carry through Beast Hunters and into the 4th Movie Line and 'Legends' are not the same thing. The closest match is probably Cyberverse Commander size though not in the amount of plastic but in price point.

    Good find, I wouldn't mind a 3p Legends sized Slammer with bot mode or not and a Scout sized Six Gun with new alt mode.
