    It seems a lot of people like the Minibots being small. I assume this is because the the original toys of the Minibots were small. I prefer them to be deluxe sized like most of their teammates. Does anyone else like the Minibots to be larger?

    NO! They should be whatever size they would be normally. Cars like Bumblebee and Cliffjumper should be Deluxe, SUVs like Brawn should be Deluxe or Voyager, and Sea Spray is fine as a Voyager and Powerglide as an Ultra. I'd be fine with downsizing both of the latter if they turned into Cybertronian vehicles instead of Earth ones, though.

    I'd almost like to see powerglide done as a crop duster, to make him the right size all around

    I like mine at least large scout sized. "Mini" doesn't have to mean so damn small it looks stupid when you put them next to everything else.

    Legends bugs me for all of them except Cosmos. all other I like around a decent size for the alt mode. So Rager (legends) is out, and giant Powerglide is in. As much as I'd like them small, i can't stand ubertiny cars, planes, and tanks.

    Nah, because deluxe is the best size class ever. Also because: Warpath.

    Small deluxe or Scout. Other than that they're a complete waste of time. Minibots can be mini, they shouldn't be micro.

    Edit: unless its Powerglide which is fine as an Ultra. Jets aren't Mini and whoever thought that idea up is retarded.

    a minibot should be large scout/small deluxe. classic bumblebee and scout windcharger did it right

    now there are exceptions, like warpath, who work as a larger deluxe.

    ultra class powerglide is frickin retarded

    For me they don't have to be mini, but I can't deal with them being bigger then a small deluxe. I really like the deluxe Bumblebee and Cliff. Warpath is a little tall but he was always the tallest of the minibots in the G1 cartoon. I really tried to like the voyager Seaspray and Powerglide, but they just dont work for me. I replaced Seaspray with the iGear, and Powerglide with the KO jinza. At this point the only Voyager sized mini I'd like is the Titanium Cosmos that never happened.

    I'll take the characters in any size class for modern lines. It doesn't matter to me.

    I already have my G1 minibots for the mini-awesomeness.
