    Bomber and Hover are tiny.

    G2 Prime Upgrade, nice size.

    Cool. Given I really like their Powerglide, unlike many here, it seems, I may bite on that.

    Then crack open my Storm Cloud. Better deco than Hasbro's Powerglide, and that figure is sorta redundant then and goes on the sell list.

    Old news. We already knew the heights and that it will be a two pack.

    What I want to know is...Is 8cm legends or scout sized. I can not support legends sized minibots cuz Legends to me is its own line and does not belong to the main line.

    Can anyone post a pic, maybe even a comparison, as to what an 8cm figure looks like?

    Unfortunately, 8cm (slightly more than 3") is more Legends than Scout territory.

    Or, more appropriately, G1 Minibot sized. Which seems to be the entire point of these things, is just to take the original designs and articulate them.

    Dang... looking over the pics again i didn't realize Powerglide literally had a screw in his head. Couldn't they have done a better job of hiding that?

    That does appear to be the point. Unfortunately, that's way too small to stand side-by-side with today's classics, which are considerably bigger (in most cases) than original G1 toys.

    Here's a comparison picture:

    [​IMG]

    RTS Legends Starscream is exactly 8 cm tall
    G2 Cyberjet Strafe is 9.5 cm tall
    RTS Windcharger is 10.5 cm tall.

    You can see that even half a centimeter makes a huge difference when it comes to such small figures.

    Igears are also going to be 8 cm too. I talked to them today inquiring about these.

    ya iGears are legends size. and looking at that comparison pic (thanx) it is way too small. For the lack of 2cm they lost my sale...I really have no interest in scale.

    I will say though with iGears PP line I may still but their minibots cuz if rumours are true the PP line will be epic and will be a collection in itself not a Classics add on collection.

    kind of want powerglide, though I don't like the screw showing in his forehead. Probably won't buy if its a two pack.
