    Just curious as to what preference everyone has for TFCs SuperIons size/scale?

    Do you want him equal to Hercules, their other combiner?

    Or would you prefer him to be equal in scale to the smaller combiners like Giant and Bruticus?

    Or do you want him even BIGGER than Hercules?

    Not like it matters, as TFC is gonna do what they want to do, but FOR FUN, what would you prefer?

    I'll most likely buy it for sure if it's Giant/Bruticus ballpark height. But if it's Hercules height I'll pass.

    Whatever the G1 cartoon scale comparison is, I would like it to be the exact same to TFC's Herucles.

    I don't buy TFC stuff around FP/MT, and vice-versa. Completely different aesthetics.

    I agree. Herc is awesome and I have no regrets buying it, but SuperIon doesn't & wouldn't hold the same "place value" in my collection. If it was the same size as Giant/Bruticus I would get it.

    Agreed. My Hercules stays far away from my Colossus, Giant and AA team.

    Judging by G1 toy scale he should be a bit bigger than Hercules.
    Going by show accuracy he could either be deluxe size combined (hello, carnage in C minor) or as big as Herc.

    I say make him the same size or slightly smaller, but not to the point where Hercules dwarfs him. Fingers crossed he will be a little bit cheaper than Herc :D

    Roughly Giant/Bruticus sized.

    I don't think another $500-$600 combiner is gonna sit well with the fanbase.

    I don't get why so many people want their combiners to be smaller. I say the bigger the better. Herc-sized for me please.

    Herc Sized all the way. Why have different sized combiners when they were all roughly the same size in the toon. It also enhances the play value of BOTH figures.

    I too am confounded...just because inferior old combiners that desperately need updating are smaller, isn't a good enough reason for new combiners to be held to that standard...IMO

    I would gladly pay that price for another TFC combiner, Herc is awesome.


    Herc size, it only makes sense. If you want FP Bruticus size wait for FP or MT to come out with one.

    It isn't so much that I prefer a smaller gestalt, because I actually don't, but due to the amount of space I'm working with, and the potential cheaper pricepoint, I'd rather have them MT/FP sized...and even that's pushing it a bit.

    Even though I still have no combiner, I am of this opinion, and while nopt a Bruticus, Superion has more appeal to me than devastator, not for character, but for design, both combined mode and individual bots :)

    If TFCs going to make most of the Scramble City Combiners... keep them all to scale. Make sure you keep them also using the same combiner ports too! XD

    My wallet cringes at the idea of it though... seeing how expensive Herc was if you bought figures one-by-one.

    Obviously it's not feasible... but it'd be cool if you could get the TFC Herc and other bots in the Energon Scale... just so that you could get a nice Gestalt display set up sooner. (Herc looks a bit funny standing next to FP Bruticus, even if I do love both figures... just looks so strange.)

    I think folks would want the Energon scale just because of space issues... and because then they can display with other combiners. CrazyDevy Predaking stands a bit taller than Brut IIRC, and then there's Nexus Prime... so some folks might have 4 bots in that scale atm.

    I think it will be smaller just by design constraints alone

    Especially if they make 5 bots the same size as the herc individual bots. Even if it's a bigger bot as the main torso. I would really like to see him be a tad shorter but not energon combiner size

    im sure people with bruticus and giant will want it in the energon size, but the people who bought herc and will probably be buying this one def want it in herc scale.

    i never cared for the energon bruticus or superion with fp upgrades so this is a no brainer for me personally.

    i think tfc sees they can probably remake all the combiners in their own style and sell a lot of bots without having to try to fit their stuff into the pre existing energon combiners.

    With different companies making different combiners, there's a chance you'll end up with a Menasor towering over Superion or vice-versa. That's why I'd rather these companies maintain some type of equivalence with each other.

    That said, these companies can do whatever they want, as far as I'm concerned, as long as they keep putting out good stuff.

    The other way is more likely right now, with the rumors of FansProject doing Menasor, he would be much smaller than Superion and Devastator, which he should be if we're going for realistic scale.
