    You know how they say that certain figures don't live up to their actual characters based on their size class, I feel Rampage is one of those characters.

    His deluxe figure is ok, but it could have used alot of improvement. There's too much going on in this figure for it to be a deluxe. I really think a voyager class figure would have been more accurate looking and a better figure overall. They could even keep his jackhammer lower-body and just have that part split into four legs for better standing. I think that would be cool.

    No. He's not that notable of a character.

    Thats not the point. The point is do you want a better Rampage figure regardless of Hasbro's future plans for the movie continuity.

    Mixmaster wasn't a notable character either, yet he got a voyager class figure.

    Mixed feelings.

    The bulldozer mode they actually used for the toy should have been larger, and I love my toys in scale.

    But- the toy is not to scale with the vehicle in the movie version. (or rather the driver compartment isn't).

    The vehicle over all (ignoring the driver compartment) and robot mode actually are pretty close to movie accurate scale.

    Certainly wouldn't complain if they did a voyager version- but I don't think this is one of the ones that really demanded it.

    That said, I do like the figure quite a bit. One of my more favorite deluxes (especially from rotf).

    I'd love to just get another deluxe, with the robot mode designed around his pogo-mode alone, instead of having to add a dorky looking 4-legged mode.

    Scale wise, all the constructicons probably should have been voyager class and up.

    I presume that wasn't economically viable. There are less voyagers than deluxes. Hasbro like to have variety in each size class, so I can accept it if they do some voyager and some deluxe, I just wish they would've done more of them.

    I'd take Scrapper as a deluxe over some of the things they did, such as Dirge. I'd even take Scrapper over Rampage, I don't really care for Rampage's design.

    Considering Bumblebee was practically riding him like a horse in the film, I wouldn't mind a Voyager Rampage. Though then again, if the deluxe were simply better, I probably wouldn't care as much.

    I'd agree the Constructicons, and really most Decepticons in the films, should be Voyager and up. Too bad we got Stratosphere as a Voyager instead of Scrapper or Overload

    Yes, if only for him to be the same size as Long Haul should Hasbro opt to make the remaining constructicons in the TF3 line, for a possible Devastator kitbash.
