Haven't seen the latter just yet... and I'm curious how he compares to good old Windcharger.
I haven't received Tailgate yet, but I was just posing RTS Windcharger with the new Legends Swerve. I didn't realize how much larger scouts were than the new Legends, but it's glaringly obvious when you put the two together.
I should be able to provide a pic or two when l return from the doctors...
Until the actual side by side picture is done, hopefully this will do for now.
Taken from the Skrapnel/Reflector review thread.
Windcharger is definitely bigger, but no more out of place with the current Legends size than, say, RtS Jazz with a more "standard" deluxe size figure.
Maybe I'll take a crack at this tonight if I remember.
Seibertron.com's gallery on Tailgate has a picture with Windcharger and Tailgate. I didn't want to hotlink the image but the link will take you right to the shot.
On a side note, although I like the new IDW styled Tailgate, I'll never understand why the RTS scout Windcharger was never repainted/remolded into Tailgate, only the obscure minion of Trypticon Wipeout who could have used a Tailgate-ish head!
They should do a two-pack with these two repainted/remolded into each other just for fun (and maybe toss in the G1 versions for a "platinum" release). Or make Tailgate yellow like that pre-production pic and pack him with a white Bumblebee/Hubcap (I've almost decided to repurpose Generations Legends Bee as Hubcap anyhow).
I hope this helps... a little
Here's my CHUG Minibots
Don't forget the vehicle mode comparisons:

Nice. Thanks. Dig that minibot collection too.. though I have iGear's Rager in place of Huffer.
Kind of wish that Tailgate's back kibble would compress a tad more. Also judging from the differences, guess trying to kitbash the two figures together wouldn't work save for plopping Tailgate's head onto Windcharger and repainting.
