    I actually started the thread with LS-12 and Aoyi Mech both mentioned. Figure the mods know their boards and audience better than I do, though, so I just left it (not that I can manually change it anyway, but I could have requested a change I guess).

    The alt mode size difference comes mainly from the difference in height and bulk as opposed to length, but as we have previously stated, there still shouldn't be such a huge difference in robot mode height.
    I do agree that Grindors size is the one that makes the most sense.

    It was stated that this Megatron will be around 36.8cm which is precisely 1:29, so this one fits perfectly ;) 

    The original title described the figure better, so the mods made a mistake with this one.
    It's not the first time something like this has happened, as the title of Black Mambas Sideswipe was changed to "KO Studio Series Sideswipe" even though it is a KO of the Sidearm mold :confused:

    So do we know anymore about this guy than when we started? Like, does he have die-cast? If so, where? I'm surprised we haven't seen more reviews out for him by now.

    We already know he has some die-cast in him. If nothing else, his toes and the removable piece of his chest were pictured and specifically mentioned. Joints were also mentioned in the initial release blurb. Not a lot, to be sure, but more than the WJ.

    TransFans has a heap of new pictures up. I've put them all in the OP under a spoiler tag, but the important one seems (to me) to be the following:

    If I'm not mistaken (and I'm fairly confidant that I'm not), that's WJ's Thunder Leader there. They're both in a pretty wide stance but that looks pretty good to me!

    Really good pictures, and yes that's BA Prime.
    Anyway they have such a strage pose in this photo, it cannot be taken as a proof for scale... You can play a lot with poses and photos, so that you show what you want to show... If you look back in the thread you can find other photos of him with ls03 and ls06 and he was much bigger than both...
    I'm still trying to understand if I prefer this one Wj's version... I've had the same problem with Optimus!! Anyway, which one you choose, they're both hood.products I think!

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is a "you can't go wrong" situation. They're both going to be bigger than either Optimus - it's just a question as to whether it's too much bigger or not enough.

    Is it just me, or have they very slightly increased the saturation on the copper/bronze parts? Could just be the lighting, but I feel like there's just enough distinction that I can see the colour difference in the blur without my glasses on now (was just silver/grey before like that).

    meant the head. The backpack is obvious, but weren’t people going nuts about a new head? Looks the same to me.

    That particular picture just appears to be pointing out the backpack, from the front. Both are shots of LS-12, which is evident by the colours and the decals on the side of the head (which are the primary difference with this head). Also the dead eyes of an LED backlight.

    If there's any other changes to the head, it's subtle. As in "so subtle you'd never notice if we didn't sit them side-by-side and tell you there was a difference".
