    My wife picked up the TRU Insecticons from New York over the weekend. I love them. I had Bombshell when I was a kid. But for some reason, he seemed so much bigger when I was a kid. Are these TRU reissue's the same size as their G1 counterparts? And also, does anyone else's Bombshell's arm/shoulder joints seem really tight?

    You were smaller when you were a kid, so the transformers in comparison would've looked bigger.

    I felt the same way when I picked up the TFC Insecticons reissue back a few years ago. But I promise you their size has not been changed. And the TF world certainly seemed much bigger when we were kids. :wink:

    The joints on mine are tight too but just twist it with a bit of force, nothing is going to break.

    Haha, I felt the exact same way when I picked up my first few re-issue G1 Autobot cars. I remember holding Jazz and Prowl and thinking, "no way, they couldn't POSSIBLY have been this small!" I think one reason I like the Binaltech/Alt line so much is that size-wise they feel to me now, as an adult, to be about the same size the G1's felt to me as a kid.
