    I was not interested in this with the previous bright red metallic paint scheme, but now....I am in.

    Really matches this artwork.

    Same with Brawn. Paint scheme makes a huge difference. Probably getting this and Dunerider.

    On brawn, I preferred the more orange yellow and the darker helm colour. The green is better though on new.

    On warpath, they went back to original dark red colours which I am happy about too.

    what's still catching my eye is the 2 tone reds between the plastic and painted diecast but that could be the flash of the camera making it look worse than it would to the naked eye

    Yeah, every now and then we get lucky and certain character figure can work as either G1 Toon or Toy version. This looks to be one of those.

    Tanks are big. But Warpath is a minibot.

    The M551 Sheridan that Warpath is based on is a light tank, coming in at only 20ish feet long and around 15 tons with a height of about 7 feet though. That's only a foot longer that a 70's Cadillac Eldorado and not much taller than a Chevy Suburban with 4wd. For comparison, an M1 Tank is 25 feet long and nearly 70 tons. In short, Warpath is a small, light tank, and not much larger dimensionally than a large van or SUV. But he was indeed a taller than typical minibot in the cartoon quite often.

    Ehh, let him be a dummy with a mismatched collection if he wants to, it doesn't hurt our collections and he's buying the product, so that's a good thing.

    Probably just kidding.

    ...but if you want a great figure that's a bigger bot, Bad Cube Wardog is excellent in both modes. Cheers!

    You’re not being serious with that ‘dummy’ business are you?

    Why not?

    I do the dummy thing myself too sometimes, no shame in saying the way it is, and I don't feel offended, as it is not a match, but whatever. like GT Devastator is my MP Devastator along my MP decepticons. Same with MMC predacons.

    Well, Ironhide and Ratchet are actually based on the Nissan Vanette which is only mini-van sized. So technically, Warpath should be a fair bit larger than them in alt mode.

    How is having a different approach to collecting a ‘dummy’ thing?

    My priorities in collecting are different than a lot of others in that build and engineering take priority over scale. I actually have no mind for scale at all. That make me a dummy?

    Saying "Masterpiece my ass!" about a masterpiece-grade figure that is one of the most masterpiece aesthetic-aligned 3P products from arguably the most masterpiece-aligned 3P company, is fair play to refer to as being a dummy. bellpeppers might not like it, but I believe it's fair play.
    Display it however you want, but don't expect to say outrageous things about a product without at least some mild mockery in response.
    You're not being serious with trying to dispute my opinion about his nonsensical statement are you?
