    Didn't they say their next two figures are Leader class? I assumed that would be Mixmaster and Scrapper.

    I'm feeling Voyager personally, about as tall if not a little taller than Voyager OP. I think they chose to go bigger on Dirt Boss after the Bluster/ Trench fiasco. While the argument of "not show characters" is often echoed to explain myvthey didn't sell well, I think that because they were so small comparative to the rest of the line played a hand as well.

    Scrapper and Mixmaster were huge in the show. All Decepticons were much larger than the autobots.
    I hope they get Leader Class treatment

    I guess if their intention was to scale the Constructicons to leader Bulkhead in particular that size for Dirt Boss is somewhere in the vicinity of being reasonable. Still there's plenty of weird size choices in the official Animated line and this figure would probably still look huge next to some of the shorter deluxes and voyagers even if it was quite a bit smaller...

    I'm just happy to know that something can be done with the legs.

    Glad to see more animated stuff! This guy looks good, but maybe a little big to me. But you know what they say about transformers and scale.

    Hope they make another characters that were at show and did not make it like toys, for example Cyclonus, Strika and Spittor. Even Straxus and Reflector would be great. Well, this show will always missed me.

    I wonder how this mold would look in GoBot Spoons colors, which would also be G2 orange?

    Added Mudmouth to the first post. I added this too the same thread as Dirt Boss because this is likely a combiner.

    I think they said it was going to be a combiner. I read it in this thread.

    They said something along the lines of "everything is possible". Not an exact confirmation, we'll see.Personally I don't need them to combine and wouldn't want them to sacrifice anything to accomplish it.

    What\'s the word on this? They should skip making Devastator. I rather have the 3 Constructicons from the series.

    I have been doing a google search almost every week since the news broke. Kinda scared that they are not being made anymore. I agree if the combiner mode is not going well just release them as individuals. I don't want to sacrifice trasformation or a bunch of added accessories to make a bad combiner mode. If they want to get in on the combiner stuff they should make a trailer for the animated Motormaster to get them to combine into Menasor.

    If these do still happen hope they sell well enough to get some others. Like a Hotshot, Cliffjumper, Wheeljack, Brawn and Cyclonus.
