    "Suppossed to be"??? Don't start. There is no right or wrong in TF scale.
    IIRC, Bumblebee could ride inside Cosmos. G1 makes no sense.
    But, if you prefer your Cosmos to be smaller, it should be noted that the legs on this guy collapse to make this shorter than MP Bumblebee, for whatever that's worth.

    Scale is pretty arbitrary at all times but it's even more of an issue with the minibots. Should they all be the same size, since they were the same class of toy? Or should they be scaled somewhat realistically in reference to their alt-modes? BC's Wardog split the difference and made him about the size of a carbot. It's especially a head-scratcher with Cosmos since there is no real-world reference to look to. Personally, I don't mind if the robot modes of the different minibots don't all end up the same size, so long as the essence of the character - to introduce yet another totally subjective and arbitrary category - is maintained. To me, a Cosmos who's the same height as Prowl probably would feel a bit too tall, but I'm not bothered if he's a bit bigger than other minibots. He is a spaceship, after all, and a unique mold with no mainstream re-decos or re-tools, so standing out amongst his minibot kin is justifiable.

    Sounds like he should be shipping from China in a week or two.

    In stock at TCP: The Chosen Prime

    Looks pretty good. Fixed hands may be the one unexpected shortcoming for a figure intended for the MP shelf.

    It seems like that's becoming the norm for MP scaled minis, sadly. A simple knuckle hinge wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

    Thanks for this great photo. After seeing it, I am struck by two things: Moonracer does not look bad although the exhaust hands still bug me, and I REALLY REALLY have to get Brawny.

    It's too bad the alt mode looks so shitty. Then again, ToyWorld is kind of on my naughty list so my goal is to not buy anything more from them so the less temptation the better. So yay for shitty alt mode!
