    What's the interest level for tiny pocket-scale CHUG figures, eventually reaching the scope of the full-scale line? I think it'd be pretty sweet.

    Having a TR Fort Max my interest is definitely high. I plan on buying the platinum edition of the hybrid style convoy. Most of the time those platinum series figures go real cheap on Amazon. That will be my time to snatch that thing up.

    I mean officials, obviously. I'm interested in the IF stuff but it's awfully high priced for what it is.

    It's also not in scale with current official Legends. The DX9 ones, in particular, are slightly smaller. I had a few to try them out and got rid of them all. Nice, but not for me.

    Personally, I would absolutely love a Legends/Cyberverse G1 cast. So much in fact that I've been building one slowly over time, using available Legends molds as well as customs (LOTS if customs), Legion figures and even minicons (the real ones, not the NuRiD atrocities) where relevant.

    The Legends version of the 'big guys' like Optimus, Megatron, Shockwave, the Seekers and a few others work nicely alongside Legion figures like Prowl, Trailbreaker and Hound

    I just finished Inferno and Grapple, and have started Magnus and the Lambo brothers. After them, the Dinobots.

    This already exists. They started with Hound, Jazz and a few others a while back, then there were 3 whole waves of them in RtS. The've done a few at the larger scale (the recent seekers, Prime, and BB for example).

    I have a whole bin of them in my closet.

    The old legends figures could definitely use a re-release...especially Jazz and Hound, which seem to command more on eBay than I prefer to spend.

    Alternatively, the old Heroes of Cybertron PVC figures work in a pinch as well (although no transformations).

    I'm using that Bumblebee, Trailbreaker and Prowl for my group. I always hated the Optimus, Megatron and Starscream molds, so I'm glad new ones were made in the new Legends scale (though I use THS-02 as my Optimus).

    Those are too big.


    I love the old Legends size class. Everyone tiny and the same size. Adorable.
    I even bought some Prime characters in that size class, which I would not buy otherwise. And Energon Starscream :D

    I've been tempted by them several times but they'd have to actually commit to it. I love the ones we do get (that I have, obviously) but the scale shifts and changes and only a small amount of characters get made in that time and it kinda ends up a mess. Still fun, though.

    I'd be well up for that. I mean, well up.

    Any excuse to repost that picture... and it's an old picture. So much more to add to it these days. But I will say, I'd want them Legends (the old Legends) or Legion size. Not Commander or the new Legends size. Iron Factory stuff is sweet (their Overlord is amaz-balls) but too big for Legions and really expensive for what it is.

    I'd be down for that. As long as they all had good weapons integration and articulation. :)

    Yeah I would buy it if the figures had some decent articulation and had fun transformations.

    I think what would be heavily appreciated is a simple but playable line of more or less in-scale figures as it would likely make the most sense.

    Having an actual set of playsets as Unicron and Primus would be amazing, especially if the other size classes followed suit.

    The only issue with a scale like this is that they would probably need to make a Deluxe/Voyager scale, which sort of belies the whole deal, but if you consider that Optimus and like sized guys (Soundwave, Ironhide, Starscream would be about Legends/Scout class, you could maybe work in Legion guys as the smaller dudes like the Insecticons, Bee, Jazz, etc and maybe ACTUAL MiniCons of dudes like Ravage, Laserbeak, Wheelie, the Minibots, Targetmasters that could turn into REAL looking weapons.

    Deluxe class could be guys like Blitzwing and the Constructicons, Megatron, Ultra Magnus, etc.
    Voyager is hard, because it could be argued that most larger robots would just be upscaled into Leader class.

    I give up.

    I'm always done for some mini robits. As long as they are fun I'll probably get them.
