    What leader class bumblebee did we get in 2018? Are u taking about the huge one from the bumblebee movie? That wasn’t a leader class. The last time we got a leader BB was 2011.

    Is the label more important than the size? I thought we were just talking about not holding to scale.

    Scale forces Hasbro to put more work into obscure characters who need the extra size/budget. If the fanbase was fine with no proper scaling, I guarantee you they'd do Rampage as a voyager. Without scaling, the next frame of reference is popularity/perceived importance, which is what older toylines went by- hence leader class bumblebee.

    I swear that the last release of the leader class bumblebee mold was AOE, it was the only generations toy in Smyths, an Irish and British toy retailer.

    Haven't Transformers toys been out of scale for most of their existence? We've had decades of that approach, I think the line can survive a few years of attempting a unified scale and some bickering about it. I mean, if we weren't arguing about scale, we'd be arguing about something else. It'll probably go back to the old approach at some point. Personally, I've been waiting for this approach since the 80s. From my perspective, it's been a long time coming.

    *Nods*

    Like, people loved the Beast Wars and those toys were hilariously out of scale. And it didn't matter because they were awesome.

    I don't think we had scale until Studio/WfC.

    I think Rampage (BW) would work best as a voyager :( . What else could he be? Surely a deluxe is too small.

    Rodimus can be much bigger than Hot Rod.

    [​IMG]

    He can also just be a head taller

    [​IMG]

    Rodimus can be bigger than his season 3 car bots

    [​IMG]

    They can also all be the same size.

    Rodimus can be taller than Optimus.

    [​IMG]

    He can also be the same size

    I’ve been drinking and don’t remember why I started this post.

    The end?

    So what you're saying is Rodimus is commander class because they have a figure of each size variant from the show in the box.


    Well, that, or that the g1 cartoon was highly inconsistent about everything.
