I'll get right in it, chief. I'm always on duty.
I care about scale so I'm fine with it lol
Yeah, 2018 was so long ago.
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.
This rodimus is actually really cool. I still like the potp gimmick, but this does a better job of looking like rodimus
Wait dotm released in 2018? well shit I didn't know it was 2031
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.
Thanks Omni Productions.
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.
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.
They could get away with Leader.
I really hope that it is not a power of the prime Rodimus Prime remold...
Even just from this one pic, it pretty blatantly isn't.
Commander class Sky Quake, MW Starscream ,Thunderclash and MW Optimus.
Rodimus can be much bigger than Hot Rod.
He can also just be a head taller
Rodimus can be bigger than his season 3 car bots
They can also all be the same size.
Rodimus can be taller than Optimus.
He can also be the same size
I’ve been drinking and don’t remember why I started this post.
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.
You sir, get an honorary Rodimus Prime Thread Survivor Medallion of Excellence.
No, no... Don’t thank me. Thank *you*.
