    There are so many good figures that are worthy of a deluxe,voyager,leader,etc...
    What ones do you want Upscaled?
    For me, It would be Breakdown, because he's a great figure but just so small, a more complex deluxe would easily rank him #1 in my collection.

    Ebay:
    Leader class animated Lugnut
    Leader class ROTF Grindor
    Leader class TFTM Bonecrusher

    EDIT: I'd also move the Animated dinobots up a scale each (leader Grimlock, voyager Swoop and Snarl).

    None. I'm all for scaling stuff down.

    Agreed.

    In a perfect TF toy world (for me) almost everything would be a Deluxe.

    This. Very much this. I would actually rather see this than the infamous Leader Blackout.

    However I'd also like to see an HA Ironhide. That and a somehow put another leader autobot. I'm tired of getting only Optimus' (no matter how badass he is) and more repaint of Optimus. Give me a new autobot in the 3rd movie that's big enough for a leader figure.

    If I had my choice, it would be Leader Lugnut (I know, I know beating a dead horse), Voyager Dinobot from Universe/Classics 2.0, Ultra Galvatron from the deluxe toy from universe

    This guy deserves a leader mold. His voyager is a great toy in itself, but that guy has leader potential written all over it.

    I'd rather see clever engineering in smaller scales, like the superb ROTF Scouts.

    Supreme scale G1 Wheelie or GTFO.

    In seriousness, it's probably to do with engineering. Look at upscaled KOs. When they start to mess with the dimensions of what's already there, it looks like ass. Better redesign the entire thing.

    See also, Cybertron Supreme Starscream - all the same points of articulation as the Legends!

    I don't think we should have upscaled figures. With Animated, people constantly whine about Leader Class Megatron feeling like an upscaled scout, more upscaled scouts/deluxes wouldn't go over well.

    I personally would buy them, but I'd rather Hasbro make something where everyone's happy.

    The Legends, by nature of its design, has a better range of movement on the shoulders, actually.

    To be fair, the big one's arms only restricted the movement there because of the upscaling from the Voyager, who was designed that way because the chip gimmick worked differently.

    In fairness though, Supreme Starscream is an example of why upscaling is not always better. For all the imposing stature that one has going on, the limbs are bulky and hard to manipulate, which makes him a bit less fun to play around with.


    I'm much more in favour of more Deluxe class toys, like the current trend of making Deluxe versions of toys who were previously released as Voyagers. Ratchet is excellent and I've got high hopes for Ironhide.

    In my case with regards to a leader-class Bonecrusher; it's wanting to be able to put Prime and Bonecrusher in "highway battle" poses without looking silly. :p 

    Besides, Bonecrusher just had so much detail in his movie incarnation that I feel could only be conveyed by way of a leader-class figure.

    Plus there's the hope that we won't have to see him with half his vehicle mode hanging off his arms.

    I'd love to see more Cars upscaled to Voyager/HA size. Stockade and Brawn are examples that I'd love to see done, as their flaws could be mitigated a little more, and their bulk could be brought out more.
