    A lot of this size shrinking to me has more to do with designing the toys to fit in the packageing via robot mode, than earlier lines which followed with vehicle modes. Mechtech plays some role. But I'm not seeing as much of a discrepency with the deluxe class.

    Even the potentially retooled sideswipe, is just rolled forward slightly. Its the same size as that new mold barricade.

    The figure can only expand as much as the packageing dimensions allow takara, so naturally it has to fold down into its vehicle form.

    Ultimately from what we have seen from the other groupshop robot mode pic. The voyagers are really only a head shorter than the earlier voyagers. (Ironhide for example) Nothing to raise a big deal about.

    Clearly that has gone into the mechtech weapon. So if you don't like the mechtech weapons you have a reason not to buy this stuff. We get it.

    But the haters exagerate. Just laying some covering fire down for my opinion: Mechtech is awesome.

    I may pass on that ratchet voyager repaint and leader bumblebee for a while. But everything else looks intense. Not sure if I'm more excited over the firetruck or the helicopter.

    Choppa looks awesome, vehicle mode of the Fire Truck looks very promising and gotta love the huge mess of weapons on the blue Wrecker. Count me interested.

    For what?

    The same toys you already own?

    Voyagers that are just slightly bigger than Deluxes?

    New cars that don't really have anything noteworthy about them?

    It's called being an obsessive collector. Which I am proud to be. Its not your wallet the money is coming out of, so there is no need to be rude. To each their own.

    I like them.

    I'm buying them.

    All.

    And everyone will remember you said this, and remind you of it if you buy so much as one toy in that photo.

    If you don't like them, that's fine. You don't have to. But don't go acting like others aren't allowed to like them because you don't.

    The only ones I'm interested in are the new molds, and I mean the new characters... I don't need umphteen repaints and retools of the same character... Bumblebee, Side Swipe, Barricade...

    And I hope that Megatron get a Leader Class figure that actually LOOKS like what he does in the film... not the film accurate Voyager and then a Leader class that's completely different.

    And if I do but any figures, if anyone wants those MechTech monstrosities, I'll elt you know which ones I have and you can take them.

    OH My :drool:  I think I'm going to love the Fire Truck! I really want to see what he looks like in Robot form.

    I'd also like to see a better picture of the Helicopter.

    There's actually at least 7 new figures here that aren't covered by any previous mold. Still gonna be expensive.

    Why wouldn't they? They've already stolen these things from a factory, so it's not like the seller has any scruples or anything...

    There were multiples of that voyager ratchet for sale, all looking exactly alike. With molded plastic colors rather than paint. It's not a custom. The people who get these things would not be fooled by a KO (as no KOs have ever turned up in these types of photos before). They're taking these off hasbro production lines.

    The voyager ratchet is clearly, very stupidly, real. Just like freakish white police car barricade was real, terrible blue and yellow bumblebee was real, and the new classic rodimus repaint was real.

    THIS!

    Sure anything could happen, but when everything else in the lot is pretty clear, why would anyone let the doubt-o-meter tilt towards bull shit?

    So we're to believe that some KO company has gone and produced a new Voyager Ratchet - one of the most in-circulation and least in demand figures. And they've managed to get it into the hands of the same person who's getting all these leaked figures.

    Okay. If that's what you want to believe. I'm not saying it's impossible.

    That (very typical of Hasbro) Voyager Ratchet repaint is HUGE compared to the DotM Voyagers.... At least alt-mode height-wise. While less mass is disappointing, the new molds don't seem anywhere near as blocky.
