    I still haven't managed to find Guzzle at retail, so I'm hoping that someone can help me out with a picture comparing Guzzle and Warpath in vehicle mode. If possible, a top view would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I have another Guzzle MISB. PM me if you want him for cost.

    I wish I could take a pic for you, but my Warpath is in storage :/

    Any thought I had on adding Guzzle to my Classics shelf is totally gone now. Guess Heavy Tread is still an option. IF I can find one.

    is it the aestethics or the size that throws you off.

    Guzzle would be a great deluxe figure if they ever make it in the current lines.

    Hey, don't be fooled, Guzzle packs a lot of awesome into a compact toy.

    To me it sort of works. After all, Guzzle was a rather small toy in his original G1 release (as was Warpath as well, so take that for what its worth)

    While their bot modes don't look right with the classics, Guzzle and Powerglide look fantastic in alt mode with the other legends. That's how they are gonna stay too :D

    Aesthetic. Size has never been a determining factor. That's why I'm still rocking the Walmart Powerglide. That, and DOTM Powerglide like Guzzle here are Bayonicles, which have no place in any collection of mine.

    Guzzle is cool looking. I just wish he was more in line with my other scouts (Breacher, Hubcap, Breakdown, Windcharger). It has nothing to do with scale accuracy, though. I typically throw that shit out the window, but I do believe that different sizes work better depending on the toy. He'd go well with Heavytread, if only a little taller.

    God, that blue face is really offputting. I might pick him up if it weren't for that.

    Haven't seen him yet, though. Maybe it looks better in person but for now... meh.

    His tiny-ness is what lured me to him, tbh. I only knew about him because of Last Stand of the Wreckers, and there I dug his squat, powerhouse design. Yeah, his vehicle mode is incredibly out of scale with anything outside of the Cyberverse toys, but his robot mode makes up for it. He's the angriest little dwarf ever, and he's all out of mead and red meat.

    Thanks for the pics! That's exactly what I was looking for. I like to display my collection in groups with similar vehicle mode scales (it's one of my quirks), but its hard to identify the scale of a tank that doesn't exist. Fortunately, it looks like the hatches on both tanks look to be similarly sized, and Guzzle is about a 1:100 scale M1 Abrams. Assuming that both hatches are meant for humans, it looks like Warpath is reasonable at about a 1:100 scale as well.

    Wow, that's crazy... I never noticed that the hatches are the same size...

    I was in the same boat for a while with him (I don't have the DOTM Powerglide), but after looking at the tf wiki for guzzle, and other online pictures, it really worked for me. Couple that with the fact that I found him during the $5 coupon period, and it was a buy for me. He may not be perfect, but I think he is far enough away from Bayverse that he works.

    Huh, that is unexpected. Guzzle's hatch is 6 mm in diameter and Warpath's is 7 mm. I think that enhances my enjoyment of the two. I love things being in scale.

    The down side is that now I know how completely out of scale they are with the rest of my figures.

    I'm going to be controversial and say that I don't like the look of either of them.
