    Just got mine from BBTS. I was told to expect that they were small.

    Wow.

    I feel like knock out would lose a see-saw match to rts Windcharger.

    I know it's not news, and smaller means more room on the shelves, but this is really something.

    Yeah. You'll get used to them, though.

    I had to go to work before I could do too much, but are they in scale with the FE's? With the RiD voyagers? With the g1 decoys, even?

    Scale means nothing in Transformers.

    ^This, besides what about Mini-Bots. Realistically Powerglide should be as big as Starscream and yet no one complains.

    Not to each other, typically. I just like when the toys can hit a nice, show accurate group pose. Couldn't care less if Tracks and Windcharger should be equals. As long as the toys are as off as the animation, which seldom happens either.

    Knockout seems roughly in scale with the FE figures I've got.

    Prime has generally done fairly good at keeping them in relative scale to each other so far.
    Far his as him being a smaller deluxe and being more shelf space, it's still the same size of deluxe box. Vehicons, Bumblebees, or Knockouts it's not gonna matter which there is more of in that regard.

    Thanks for the pic!

    As far as shelf space goes, I meant at home! The lines are starting to elbow each other pretty hard to stay out of the closet box.

    Can't wait to get that new Vehicon, even if he is a bit smaller than Animated Lockdown.



    ... except that I can, since doing so means that I'll at most pay 19 instead of 50 & still have just as much to flaunt & play with.

    Wow I had no idea Knockout was that small. So disappointing. :(

    Except Soundwave and Vehicon are the tallest PRID Deluxes.

    Eh. You can fake scale by the way you set up your display. I plan on doing this for my Prime shelf.

    Voyager Starscream is taller than he should be, so I put the figure up front. Soundwave is smaller than Starscream despite being equal height on the show, he gets placed near the back.

    You can imply depth to be more than what your shelf actually allows for.
