    I do t have any of the new ones, but here’s a crappy photo with a couple of comparison figures:

    9B16692E-5EDC-4C40-849E-51178E36CEB0.jpeg

    I believe the wfc micros are almost exactly the same height as the g1 guys?
    Makes me want to find out which are the best/most posable wfc ones and buy some!

    A voyager price for a figure smaller than core class figure, seems like something that Hasbro would do :lol 

    If this is 5.8 cm then ravage will be in the size of mm, time to get my Scalpel

    Damn, this mini Soundwave reminds me of Animated mini Sound Wave ​

    Interesting....so this is Soundblaster rather than Soundwave.

    It makes sense since all the promo photos were with Scorpnok. I was hoping for the Soundwave deco though thinking these guys were for Trypticon.
    I was hoping for two characters for each Titan class figure. So maybe Weirdwolf and someone else to go with Scorpnok.

    I assumed it was Soundwave, too, but I meant to post this weekend that, quite obviously now, this is a Headmasters two pack and not a Season 3 two pack.

    It’s black, and the chest door is a solid purple.

    The soundblaster pics have "E02B" in them, so I'm wondering if there isn't two decos.

    I guess these are based on the Headmasters miniseries, so those would be Galvadon and Super-Soundwave lol They look a bit... stumpy, proportion-wise, but considering thei're more or less the size of the NewAge Bumblebee figure, they still seem surprisingly good overall.

    Yep. Minor articulation / transformation changes and a bit different colouring. But they are the same thing

    If they are going for the japanese Headmaster series, as it seems to be the case, I wonder if thei're gonna be crazy enough to try to do a Sixshot in this scale. I would imagine we're more likely to get a Scourge/Cyclonus 2-pack next, tho.

    This looks "okay". To be perfectly honest though, I think Newage set the bar for Legends scale. It's gonna be hard for these to compete.

    Yep, definitely looks like Wu's going for the Micromaster scale with these figures, which makes perfect sense (to me, anyway) if they're to be 'played with' alongside Titan-class citybots. And I really like the Monitor Officer design...not so much Destroy Emperpo's head though, unfortunately.

    You don't leave that Soundwave money on the table. You release Soundblaster first so that impulsive people can scratch that new mini Soundwave that isn't Soundwave itch, then you drop Soundwave on them and maximize on the completionist factor.

    Ya know, I didn’t even think of that, but it’s not totally impossible seeing as there is a “World’s Smallest Transformers” version of Sixshot.

    But, I’d hope that a Wu’Shot would be sold on its own, and not part of a two pack. Though, if it were bundled with anyone, I would guess it would be Ultra Magnus.

    I got Magic Square’s Soundblaster and much prefer it and their CassetteCons, but, in general, NA, MS & IF have all really advanced the Legends scene to the well earned prominence that it now has.

    Still, these aren’t Legends figures. I think they might even be smaller than the old Legion class typing, so I’m tending to agree with calling these two offerings from Dr Wu as part of a Micro class.
