    Classics Sideswipe and Red Alert have ugly faces. And I wish the chest on that mold wasn't so big looking. And I want a 3rd party to make a (Counter)Punch toy because the official exclusive one looks ugly.

    The only character I 100% like in that mold is Sunstreaker.

    DOTM LDR Ironhide, no matter what anyone says, it isn't to scale with ROTF LDR Prime
    Battle Blades Bumblebee, too tall
    HFDT DLX Ironhide, too short, maybe the shortest DLX toy.

    RTS Jazz has freaky lower legs. I don't remember seeing anyone else mention it.

    Still like it of course.

    Can't check now since i have them in altmode, but I think Hailstorm's smaller. Also Dirge/Jetblade mold is very very short too.

    Thank god. A Transformers line that adhered to a sense of scale would be boring. And impractical.

    We'd probably rarely get jets, for one, because they'd all have to be Leader Class or bigger.

    Mixing transformers and scale would be like mixing acetone and toys.

    I don't like how we're treated as collectors. We're either pariah, or predator in the eyes of many.

    If we were in control of the world economy, it would be better than fixed. Why? Because we value market fluctuations. We watch quicker than those old government geezers how stuff gets put online, and how fast it gets sold. We'd have good jobs, mostly in creating and selling Transformers, we'd have good health care because we'd get out and play more and stress less, and we'd be able to ship all the scalpers to their own private island where the Internet doesn't exist.

    Ebay:
    -HFTD BB BB is too tall.
    -Hasbro sucks at getting scale right.
    -ROTF Deluxe Sideways has all that ugly red in robot mode.
    -DOTM Deluxe Roadbuster isn't weaponized, and is rather plain looking in robot mode.

    That would imply that they try to keep scale. It's more like they never cared about it.

    I also want to add that DOTM DLX Bumblebee's face looks off with that silver.

    I just remembered these:

    Diaper Soundwave - everything about him
    Generation Drift is molded in a somewhat pinkish plastic.

    Hailstorm's missiles. I hate how they stick out so far. Other then that, he's an awesome mold.

    Everytime a movie comes out plastic qaulity gets flushed down the toilet.

    We never got all of the Constructicons larger than Legends Class. RotF Megs' right arm doesn't have a ball joint. While Battle Blade Bee is in my opinion, the best representation of the character by far, his doors are too far apart in bot mode. We didn't get a Leader Megs for DotM. The Voyager Optimus with the trailer isn't available in the US. The recent lack of paint apps sucks. No Leader Blackout/Grindor/[insert drone name here], even though we all freaking want one.

    I'm sure I'll think of more.

    RoTF Grindor: He's too tiny.
    RoTF Dirge/HFTD Jetblade: His arms are different.
    DoTM Crankcase: Clipped finger.
    Generations Drift: Swords are too rubbery.
    TF07 Arcee: Too much kibble
    RoTF Sideways: THAT DAMN RED.

    In honor of laserwave... Still no mirage/dino. :) 
    I wish rodimus prime was cheaper. Also wish that whoever is crushing the generations figs in my area would stop. I like having an mip display. Is that so wrong?
