    Wow. Iceman is obnoxiously tall. The limbs shouldn't be taller than optimus prime. Goose was a good size

    Dang. At first glance he looks gorgeous, just like Goose. But after finding myself very lukewarm toward Maverick I feel that @Paik4Life's opinion matches mine and I'm going to stay out on this set. The final straw for me is this screenshot from Paik's review. That is WAY too big:

    I don't think the size is the issue, the Takara scale is in need of a refresh and the bigger stand out is the dated mould.

    Anyone have the toyworld coneheads that aren't styled like official MP seekers to pose next to Iceman in bot modes?

    I mean, I guess he really does look like Jetfire next to Prowl. Kind of silly, they made the stunticons large to scale to even larger Aerialbots?

    I disagree. I do agree that the official car bots are too small compared to the likes of MP-44. But outdated mold or not, MP Starscream is the right size when compared to MP-36 and MP-44. I just can't see a set of in-scale Aerialbots being much or any larger than the MP seekers or MP Ironhide.

    He’s big but I think it’s fine, he’s smaller than Prime and looks much better with Takara seekers than Prime looks with carbots.

    Right. After all FT and DX9 Stunticon limbs are bigger than MP carbots so there's no big deal with Iceman's size IMO.
    Your attachment can't be opened for some reason.

    Haha
    Haha, just a meme that’s always appropriate for Fans Toys but I didn’t want to aim at anyone in particular.

    Looks like Iceman is sold out at ShowZ now and about everywhere.

    I google searched an image that would show some of the aerialbots with other autobots as a reference for scale, and this is what I came up with. Silverbolt is insanely big in this image from the cartoon. Just look at where scale is on this show. I'm not the least bit miffed that the limb bots are as tall as Prime or at least close. This is a cartoon where a mack truck is somehow larger than a F-15 jet.

    For me, it's close enough.

    By the way, we're not even gonna talk about how the Aerielbots were built in literal minutes in the show?

    If it took bigger bots for FT to get Superion the height they were aiming for, it’s a worthy sacrifice for me. Regardless of the size of the original toys or the cartoon, I’m okay with them not being mini sized for my MP collection.

    I'm right there as well. I think it all has to do with the combiner size and the way the Stunticons and the Aerialbots merge.

    If Goose was the same size I'd believe the height was for combined mode.

    At this point I'm halfway into the stunticon aerialbot set. They're my favorite rivalry so I'll stay glass half full, but I see a lot of risks with these sets and if the combined modes are lacking I am out on fanstoys.

    But how would you know before the last bot is released?

    I was in the same situation and contacted Baba instead of waiting for an invoice. Paid my order and it's been shipped out, maybe send him a message to see what's up.

    After watching Paik4life review of Iceman I realize that this set is quite bad... Their Stunticons are a lot better imo.

    I do, but I don't have Iceman yet. I'll try to remember to post when I do.
