I think I fixed it...
Dude I cant thank you enough taking all those pictures.
I ordered DX9 soundwave and seekers. Got to get the IF shockwave now. Then Ill wait for MST prime and maybe purchase MFT Megatron.
All have their issues scale wise, but I do think MST cars and toyworld cars work best with HS prime/ MFT megatron thus far. As much as i like MFT shockwave better I think the scale of DX9/ IF soundwave/ shockwave work fine with MFT megatron because their head comes to the middle of MFT megatron chest.
DX9 megatron/ prime just too small overall
I gotta be honest, I still like the GT Megs a lot more than MFT. The MFT version (head aside) just doesn't have a good feel to it in hand. Parts are very loose and the arm movement kinda sucks. I like Megatron being beefy and GT definitely nailed that look. Might swap heads as others have done
Interesting note about MFT version. The GT megatron throws me off a bit (looks chunky in arms and face, which I dont like, but thats just my opinion and Im not a fan of the shinyness). I have seen a GT Megatron with MFT face which looks decent.
Iron Factory Megs is stunning! Hats off to them, it’s a great figure and the customising options are great too
Ewww. Such shrimpy Decepticons. I always envisioned them no more than a head shorter than Megs (and since I'm a Marvel TF comics fan, Shockwave of equal height to match the thorough beatdowns he visited upon Megs.
It's not like they're... carbots.
Your collection, tho. =D
Anyone have the NA Bee and the Hot Soldiers Bee?
I cant disagree with that, lol. I mean if NA made a Marlboor wheeljack, i would just do all NA.
The really only issue with Dx9 sounwave and IF factory is two things. Soundwave appears to be slightly smaller height wise then IF shockwave and shockwave is more G1 toy color then toon.
I had thought about running a MFT shockwave, DX9 soundwave and not Megatron all together, Since Shockwave was my other favorite decepticon other then starscream.
On the other hand, I felt like HS Soundwave was a little too tall in comparison to MFT megatron and MFT shockwave has a larger head ratio to MST/ Toyworld cars (which could of been used other then megatron all together though). I never got into comics so Im clueless there.
If you look at your scale chart, Shockwaves eye is at Megatrons middle chest maybe even under it. IF Shockwaves head comes to the middle of MFT Megatrons chest im ok with that because soundwave does.
At the end of the day I like DX9 soundwave more then HS soundwave (one is more disks) and If I go with a optimus/ Megatron then Ill keep them slightly bigger to keep them at the right ratio scale wise with the cars (leaders wise).
So at the end of the day thats the route I took. Its not perfect envision I had, but some of those things is what lead me to the decision. The other issues was finding an original HS blue Soundwave there all gone except for clear.
These were the images that I made my final decision with. yes scale wise cars fit better with HS/ MFT soundwave/ shockwave (not so much head in my mind) but atleast wheeljack is at IF shockwave chest
Ewww, such shrimpy carbots!
I do. Whatcha interested in knowing?
Just looking for a comparison shot, if it's not too much trouble.
Not my pic (grabbed from google), but here ya go:
Holly crap is NA bee smaller then G1 minibot bee?
That is one tiny Bee..
Yup....freaky aint it?
Unbelievable! Im actually kind of glad I kept my G1 mini's now, but even then; What NA did with Bee on that scale is Awesome. It would be a 100 if they could somehow incorporate the full yellow bug and not the black spot at the door handles (being picky, but still great)
@FredVIII did you photoshop NA bee smaller then G1 mini bee, lol. I still cant get over that right now
FredVIII for the win
0_o. Shocks is, like, half a head shorter than Megs, but okay.
There IS that; I really prefer the DX9 Soundwave's mold too, but we haven't managed to convince MFT to upscale it or design their own yet. Maybe once their Blaster is out....
Cars tend to be smaller than trucks. Part of the problem, of course, is that G1 Prime is 1:48 or so, while the Diaclone cars are mostly around 1:35 (with roughtly 1:60 drivers... ai yi yi). No wonder Hasbro deep sixed 'em.
In fairness, things are all wackadoodle with relative scale of carbots for most companies anyway, since the only company that's actually making Legends scale ones is New Age; both Iron Factory's and most of Magic Square's are the right size for Legends+, though I put 'em with my Legends figs, too, like practically everyone does.
"O, that way madness lies; let me shun that."
Both aren't perfect in my mind (I see eye to chest not eye to neck) that's why I went that way but I inderstand your viewpoint as well. Shouldn't be two head ratio
I like the MFT shockwave better but DX9 soundwave better and also the MFT megatron the best (in whats available now). I came close going the legend + route, but 1) couldn't find a blue HS soundwave and 2) only comes with one cassette 3) I'm not completely upset with the scale from smaller version soundwave/ shockwave to MFT megatron
Maybe what threw me off is MFT has a pretty tall chest. Maybe I should of drawn the lines first lol. Anywho nothing is perfect.
Theres always NA mega
I also suspect that there will be a Magic Square Megatron of some sort, who will likely be slightly shorter than the MFT Megs. That might be a while, though.
