I read somewhere that their budget allows for 3 change from the hench mold. 1. New head 2. New paint job 3. New gun They should of kept the same gun as hench and given outback the new chest, HELL YEAH high five tigerblade, Im thinking that the mp collectors are happy with this upsized scale as we can display the miniwarriors with the mp's Some of the classics collectors either don't mind the size as they fit in with bee and cliff or there using legends for the minis and prefer the original smaller scale, Guess its hard to please everyone, I personally don't care if they have simple legend/scout size transformations for their almost deluxe size because they rock.
