    I'm SO much more into alt modes scaling appropriately – even if it's "relative" scaling (e.g. – cars = deluxe/Jets = voyager) – then basing the lines scaling off some asinine scale charts for a cheaply made cartoon that wasn't even consistent within itself....

    this is an aside to your point, but I've wanted someone to make a scaled Star Wars vehicle for soooo long., like fighters about the size (or a bit smaller) of the current Hot Wheels versions with Mid sized ships (falcon/shuttles/ghost/slave1) scaled to them and larger capitol ships done bigger, but again, at a relative scale since they'd be absurd otherwise, but with a Star Destroyer being like 18" long and other capital ships scaled appropriately to that... pretty much the Fantasy Flight Games miniatures but at mass-market prices :p )

    Definitely, I’m not really one for accuracy so scale charts don’t really make sense to me.

    If Starscream is a jet, he should be bigger than Optimus. It not only makes it more realistic, but also adds to the sense of danger. Prime and the autobots are the underdogs in that situation. Then you add combiners and city bots into the situation, it makes the main autobots feel somewhat small, but subconsciously also makes the scale of the war feel bigger.

    Maybe something like this? 11B91D58-F637-4A7F-AEB0-DC3F13A5D19B.jpeg 7DE9888D-030B-4976-96BB-E2268161EEB1.jpeg




    and definitely on the scale vehicle stuff from Star Wars. I used to love the micro fleet stuff with the little pilots

    so much agreement: that's why, despite not loving the mold, I really liked the CW Leader Seekers, they felt somewhat appropriately scaled to deluxe cars.

    Used to have this figure, think he was a victim of the toy purge when moving years ago. Reading your post kinda makes me want him back. A solid bot indeed

    It’s an oversized KO of the Iron Factory Seeker. I’ll admit I’m a bit embarrassed to own it, as I’m usually not a fan of KOs, but an eBay seller included him with a different purchase a couple years ago so I kinda just ended up with it.

    It’s a really solid figure. Excellent articulation and joints and the surprising the plastic quality is leaps and bounds better than the original figure.

    I quite like the dynamic my two leaders have. Prime is smaller, more nimble and flexible, while Megatron is a hulking, massive, slow war machine.

    Dinobots and Shattered Glass, honestly not sure if I'll get the new Swoop when it comes out, I kind of like him being smaller and red
