    That's not right chief. Rattrap was the shortest at 1.5m, but all the others were all around 2m or well over. The verge hight of a Transformer after the Great Upgrade was about 2.8m, or 9 foot or higher.

    Yeah, Henkei! Henkei! Dinobot is by far the best version of the character. I also quite like Cheetus. I actually picked up a Universe Cheetor that I plan to recolour into Tigatron.

    The Cheetor mold is ok, but the kibble at the back is wasted. I'd have much preferred Takara to have skipped the snarling gimmick and turned the rear section into a gun or two! Because one big gun would have probably toppled him over because he's so skinny.

    Fingers crossed for more BW figures in this style though!

    That scale chart doesn't make any sense. Seems like Takara wasn't at all watching the show when they came up with those figures. I mean, Optimus bigger than Rhinox? Tigerhawk twice as tall as Depth Charge? Really??

    Yeah, it's a little bit out, but certainly proves that the BW bots weren't human sized.

    Ha, that's my desktop wallpaper!

    Also, for me it's about as accurate as a scale reference gets for Beast Wars.

    Would work better with a Videotape Airazor or a Fox Kids one.

    This is her official for before Beast Wars and after it. She didn't take on the Fox kids form in any fiction did she?

    No Fox Kids TM Airazor was not in any fiction I know of but she's got some brown on her instead of the yellow so looks more like the other Airazor toys and show colours I would say that is therefore a little better than the default yellow/silver one as a match to the non-Transmetal one of the Funpub one.

    The most TV show accurate colour beast mode Airazor is the Videotape basic size Airazor toy though. That one is nearly the same colours as the Collectors Club Airazor toy too.

    The yellow Transmetal kind of goes with the normal Basic though but also the Foxkids one to some degree:

    There's also the snazzy Black one too :

    You know I have a funny feeling I forgot to buy that black one.
