    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.
