    The Stunticons have never appeared on any official scale chart (at least, not on any scale chart that’s been released to the public). If you’ve seen a chart which features them, then it’s an unofficial fan-made one.

    If you don't like the scale, don't buy it. And don't complain. Some people like it. Those people bought it.

    There, I'm done. Peace to all.

    That's all well and good but if we didn't have anything to complain about, this thread would only be 5 pages long.

    Even though the limb bot modes for each limb wasn’t on the chart, I believe they were handled like the combined height was handled. Devy was the only combiner on s2 chart because he was the reference for the Combiner size. You didn’t need all of them on there because devy represents them all. So similarly you don’t need all the limb bots on the chart because the constructicons were the reference for the size. Just a theory. My preference is all torso bots be OP size and all limb bots be seeker size, but due to no mass shifting I’m fine with close enough.

    Mine just showed up from TD today:

    Wildrider comparison:

    (I just noticed they don't even come close to being the same color!)

    I was too lazy to transform toon XTB Wildrider, so you get G2 instead.

    It may be the wrong Ferrari model, but its a nice looking alt mode nonetheless:

    I like his transformation better than Spoiler's, its a little more intuitive than your typical FT transformation. But its still pretty tight- the last page of the instructions even calls out the parts of the transformation you need to be careful with. Man, I am not looking forward to prying the front and back halves open to transform him back to robot mode.

    How does the stack work on TFSource? I have magnum in my stack there, but not paid for. Once they get him, will they send me a notice of some sort?

    Regarding to the scale topic, both DX9 and FT did a far better job than xtransbots, since in almost everyshot, the limb bots are up to Motormaster/silverbolt's shoulder, while xtransbots team like a teacher with four preschool toddlers. So stunticon is seeker height, which is perfect.
    Bot mode, DX9 is actually the best since their motormaster is shoter.
    BTW, yeah tfs express is shipping mine tomorrow too!

    If you keep posting the funky screenshots to support your statement is true then I can prove FT Silverbot is not in right scale. So FT definitely not in right scale. lmfao

    Yup, you have your right to act like an ostrich and put your head inside the ground saying FT is perfect. I am not going to argue with it as this is an endless topic. To be honest, I am thinking to get Xtransbots and I have both DX9 and Fanstoys stunticons already. I know how FT looks good on shelf. For scale, I still prefer DX9 and Xtransbots better. I think Zeta aerialbots with DX9 stunticons are the best match so far. IMO

    I know everyone has their own scale criterion in mind. What I mean was that some people are saying DX9's alt mode has ridiculous size and it is a trash. They also said Xtransbots like a cheap plastic dollar menu toys and said lucky that he has FansToys and how FansToys is perfect....blah blah blah That I disagree. Please respect the other toy lovers and the toys inventors. Nothing is perfect in the world.

    I totally agree with you. That's why I am still hesitate to buy Xtransbots version. DX9 Menasor next to DX9 Omega , Zeta Superion Bruticus, TW Devestator are good match so far. IMO

    I think I can see the alt face in the styrofoam tray photo provided by @OmegaTaco Supreme on the previous page. He's definitely supposed to have 2 per the product shots. But yeah, be good to have confirmation.
