    Just a thought that popped into my head. I know some of you guys wish that the movie scales could have been more inscale and more accurate to their onscreen versions. Well, this is where my idea comes in:

    Expanding the Robot Replica lineup to include larger scale figures. Barricade, Jazz and Bumblebee could set the standard for the scale, so that larger figures could be released. It's the same basic idea as some collectors using ML Icons Hulk instead of a regular Hulk for their ML display.

    If I remember correctly the RR figures are 5 inches, so the lineup could be something like this:
    -5 inch figures (deluxes): Barricade, Jazz, Bumblebee, Scorponok
    -8 inch figures (megas): Ironhide, Brawl, Bonecrusher, Ratchet (smallest at 7 or 7 1/2 inches)
    -10 inch figures (ultra's): Starscream, Optimus Prime, Megatron
    -12 inch figures (leader): Blackout

    And maybe even basic packages with the humans and Frenzy. :) 

    The bonus: Because these figures won't be able transform, they could be considerably cheaper then their transforming counterparts. And let's not forget that they would be a LOT more movie accurate and loaded with accessoires (like the current RR figures).

    So yeah, would you buy something like that?

    I was just thinking about this today. The Robot Replicas are going to be my movie toys of choice, but I sure would like to see all the movie characters made for the line, and done to relative scale.

    That would be awesome. I plan on getting everything Blackout, so he would be the first one that I would pick up, but other than him, I'd probably pick up the rest of them in the end.

    Absolutley! I love the idea of the robot replicas, though how well they turn out I'll have to see.
    It would be nice to see them in scale though, I'm not too fussed about having a 12 inch blackout, but it'd be nice if (for example) Optimus was nticably bigger than Bumblebee.
    I would LOVE to see the line continued accross other generations (G1, beastwars, highlights from headmasters etc), though I cant see it happening.
