    The thing that is most confusing about RiD Prime is all the size classes we now seem to have. It's to the point I don't know what to get.

    Let me illustrate for a second:
    - Deluxe Optimus
    - Voyager Optimus
    - Leader Optimus

    Leader Optimus seems like the size you would want for this. Plus he looks like the FE version which is a plus.

    But for other figures, I am confused on what to get or what I should wait for.

    Bulkhead should be a Voyager. Not sure, but the FE would be better because it seems bigger.

    Also, Ratchet should be a Voyager as well. The rest are ok a Deluxes on the Autobot side.

    Question is, do you think we will see Voyager Ratchet and such? Even Megatron should be a Leader class.

    Possibility with the way things are going. Of course they could cancel them next month to restart the line with something else hokey gimmick-wise. :lol  It's a toss up really.

    Leader classes are huge and out of scale with the current lines of FE/RID, so no, I wouldn't buy them to display with the group, but I'll sure buy leader Optimus for the novelty bc it looks fun as hell.

    Voyager Ratchet? Probably not, but it'd be great because it'd be a perfect, show-accurate scale.

    Edit: And, I dunno why, but the RID Bulkhead seems a bit taller than FE... I think it's because he looks more oblong in the torso than circular like FE. I honestly dunno though.

    That Leader sized Prime is just too big in bot mode while the Voyager in bot mode is pretty much perfect IMO. The only real issue for me size wise is Arcee, she's just too damn big. Otherwise I really have no real issues with bot sizes as of yet.

    I have to say, I really like the scaling from voyager to deluxe. I really think they put some thought into it. At least the autobot wise, robot scale looks approx correct with FE versions + Ratchet (which is incoming at some point I think).

    Voyager Megatron is about the size I'd expect with dlx soundwave, starscream, and vehicons.

    Leader would be way too tall for Megatron. He just needs to be slightly taller than Optimus Prime. If FE Prime and RiD Megs' heights were switched, it would be perfect.

    Ratchet needs a voyager too. Hopefully slightly shorter than FE Bulkhead.

    No. Voyager price point.

    Ratchet needs a voyager bad. Presumably Ironhide too.

    No, that was just TRU's typical scalping price
