    I know it's only a small deal, but this makes me want 'plex even more.

    That's...actually kinda cool. Doubtful, but it would be interesting to see it released on it's own.

    with the major upscaling of Metroplex, I'm surprised that Scamper is still the same size! (as he should be imo)

    I going to assume some 3P guys will make Slammer and Six Gun. I wonder if the G1 dudes can integrate into the new metroplex. Ill have two scampers

    Awesome. So no Six Gun or Slammer? I guess third parties can jump on those two. Unless maybe the SDCC version will come with them.

    What size is Scamper again? Commander scale, or more of a smallish Scout?

    He's in scale with the new Optimus and Bumblebee "Legends" figures, so yeah, somewhere around Commander or a small Scout. Bumblebee is about a head shorter than RTS Windcharger, so around that approximate height. Nice to finally see this one!

    Awesome to hear. Scamper does indeed look great, and I can't wait to see how it looks painted.

    Now I'm wondering how plain Metro will look without his stickers on because those are the reason I'm not planning on getting him.


    I freakin hate stickers!:lol

    I do notice that his head is red, but I guess I can get use to it.

    Loving the Bumper head. This needs three repaints: red, blue, and yellow.

    I'm guessing it will be painted - perhaps it is done in red to make it easier to paint? Though he certainly needs more colour, you can't get less than the original who was 100% black!

    That might just be prototype colors.

    It really does not seem all that faithful to vintage toy scamper other than being a small black car. Though a quick trip to tfwiki and it seems this one bares more of a resemblance to his old Animation model. classic.
