    Which makes the fact that they are only Legend sized hurt that much more.

    The Mini-Bots were Legends size in the day so I guess it makes sense. I'm all for hasbro make Scouts and Deluxes though.

    There are mini bots after all,can't make them too big or else it will not be to scale compare to those Leader class bots

    Scouts are not big at all. The remainign minibots can easily pull off something as big as a deluxe but woudl all rock as scouts.

    I PERSONALLY do not consider Legends to fit into a main line. AKA Legends is its own line. So unfortunately, as beautiful as these things are, I have to pass due to size...but they are so beautiful :(

    I too, consider legends a line to itself. So as nice as these I likely will be passing.

    Great to see some news on these.

    Like others, I too wish they were scout sized. Would have worked better with PP01 I feel and also would have avoided a direct head-to-head with MakeToy.

    Also passing due to Legends size. Scouts would have been perfect for my use.

    I agree with the scouts over legends view point. That being said I just might grab Huffer since he was my favorite as a kid, and the price isn't that bad either. At least it's a better representation than the botcon Huffer, even though that repaint is mighty cool too.

    im happy the price is low and i guess that is a function of their legend size. i dont have any hasbro/takara legend size stuff because the quality is so bad. but i have pe reflector, rumble/frenzy, and ejector/rewind already on my classics shelf. technically i guess these minibots should be a little larger than the cassette bots. but it wont bother me.

    they look perfect/gorgeous design wise.

    my only worry is that they wont do all the minibots in this size. im down for all of them on my classics shelf including awesome updates of bumblebee and cliffjumper (but they need to be the same size as these minibots.)

    Wow, not at all interested anymore. Originally I wanted huffer but I was on the fence due to apparent lack of leg rotation but now after seeing how small he is i'm definately out.

    I want these, and I don't at the same time. As far as my collection goes, PCC Huffer makes a good Classics, and HFTD SeaSpray is Classics, but, I really, really, really like the updates of the minibots.

    Very happy they went with legends, and really hope more get done. I like my pizza hot, my beer cold, and my mini bots mini.

    You and me both. Love that they are prettymuch in scale with the Hasbro Legends with added articulation. I loved mini-bots back when I was a kid, and am perfectly happy getting them in updated versions. Hope they crank out the rest of the set in a hurry.

    Being Legends size makes these absolutely perfect for me. I probably would have bought them at any size, but I prefer Legends size.
