    It's not 3rd party it's official.

    It's an undersized die cast version of the Cybertron Optimus figure, with improved articulation.

    100% Takara

    The one on the left is their attempt at the same but with G1 Optimus, not as good as the Right one.

    Well it is 15 years old, and it's 99% accurate to what its based on.

    It's also the first legends scale prime to have a removable Matrix.

    What's everyones thoughts on zeta toys legends Arielbots their bringing out? On a well known Ebay sellers site he says there 12cm? Would you say that's a little big along side what we already have in the way of Stunticons from magic square?

    It also says that Superion is going to be only 9.06" which is bonkers, tiny. Zeta has figured out mass shifting in real life.

    Edit: Disregard. For some reason I thought my other Legends combiners were wayyy bigger than 9".

    If accurate, then yes, these would be much too big for me. 12 cm to the top of the head (I presume) would be noticably taller than MS Optimus Prime.

    I got them both preordered over at Show.Z because I like the design of MP Zeta Superion a lot, and so I hope this Legends version will end up looking just as nice.
    12cm for the single bots doesn't sound too odd to me, as I believe they measured that size at the tip of the nose cones, which extend a fair bit over the top of their heads.
    What concerns me the most is indeed the opposite...
    ... and I mean this.
    23cm for Superion sounds a little too short to me. Even after rearranging my Legends into 3 different displays - so I don't really care about MST Menasor and Devastator towering over him, as they will stand in their own Decepticon shelf - I'm not sure the combined bot will look 100% right, even next to Magic Square Autobots. Not a deal-breaking issue anyway... Worst case scenario, he will get along nicely with my NewAge figures.

    Thanks for that 10cm I can work with but even if like the above post said to the nose cone that's fairly acceptable as well. I had heard about them on YouTube news then noticed them available to pre order and that was the 1st measurements I had seen.

    Moving to a bigger spot next month so starting to pack up my environment shelf displays. Even though they'll be back out in a couple weeks, putting them back in the packaging is making me kinda sad hahaha..

    Even found some that I never put on display that were boxed away as impulse buys! Me thinks kbb bb, HS sdubs and a few others on the way to the b/s/t thread! :D

    I'm also skeptical. I won't pull the trigger until after watching reviews

    23 centimetres for a legends scale combiner is perfect, and pretty much standard these days.

    IF Bruticus is 22-23cm tall. So is MFT Omega Supreme. DX9 Hulkie is (showing his age) 19cm tall. MS Devastator is purportedly going to be 23-24cm tall. MS Menasor will be about 23 cm tall. I'm not sure how tall IF MegaTarn is, because I've never combined the DJD, but I know what height I would bet on :)

    I see, my bad then. I thought I read both MST Menasor and Devastator will stand over 25cm tall, and I was also under the impression they would be pretty huge, considered how much taller than Megatron the former seems to be, in all the recent videos showing Motormaster's trailer transformation.

    That's just a picture of a ruler pasted onto another picture, though yes? Are there any with actual rulers or tape measures in the picture, next to the toys?

    He was pictured beside mp44 a while ago, so we’ve got a decent reference

    Folks, I have started to dip my toes on legends scale and I am looking for some advise so what I would buy next scales with each other at the very least. I am also looking to downsize my collection figuratively and literally and legends seem to fit the bill.

    So far I have KO Mightron as my Megatron, KO Ultrl Magenus and a KO Huge Dragon. So far, I'm planning to get an Optimus Prime to match and other decepticons like Starscream and Soundwave. Any suggestions on what to go for next?
