    So I just recently purchased a Voyager Battle Blades Prime and a ROTF Voyager Desert Tracker Ratchet.After I got them out of the box and transformed Ratchet,I stood him next to Prime,and I was surprised at the size difference.Prime looks like a Deluxe next to Ratchet.So then I started going through a bunch more of my ROTF Voyagers and they're all a lot bigger than Prime.The only other new Voyager I have is Seaspray,and he is dwarfed by all my old Voyagers also.It kinda sucks that they're making these new Voyagers so much smaller than the old ones.What gives Hasbro?

    Oh come on, they're not THAT much smaller than the older Voyagers. Seaspray's no deluxe.

    I'm just saying,you stand ROTF Ratchet next to Seaspray or BB Prime,and tell me that there isn't a big size difference.

    Yeah, but Ratchet is nothing but big clunky parts with no real amazing engineering either. I'm not saying he is a pile of crap, but Battle Blades Optimus Prime is amazing in looks in both modes. Ratchet really isn't anything amazing in bot mode.

    There are always size differences between figures in the same class. All of the figures you mentioned are no big deal.

    They're no TFA Voyager Lugnut.

    Probably has something to do with the parts count. Ratchet and Seaspray seem like relatively simple Transformers, while Battle Blade Prime has a lot more parts. I don't have Seaspray or Prime though, so I could be wrong. Though he could be be small for the same reason that Lugnut and movie Blackout are, whatever that may be.

    It really varies. You could say new deluxes are really tall if you only have Lockdown and the Twins, but in truth, Lockdown is just a big deluxe. I'm sure there will be larger voyagers to come out.
    What about his funny?

    Lockdown is up to about the elbow of your average Leader figure.

    for comparison's sake.

    and there's always been an inconsistency with voyager sized figures- remember '07 Blackout?

    There's really no big difference. Like others have mentioned, if you wanna complain let's point the figure at TFA Lugnut. Thats a DLX size figure.

    the new BB prime is no where near as good as the ROTF leader:
    the swords SUCK
    the legs are too skinny
    and it just does not look as good, the guns are ugly

    ROTF leader is perfect for a movie prime, only thing bb prime has over him is price, and some scale

    Ratchet is kinda a huge-ass voyager anyway.
