    Its funny how much better it works if you picture it as a mp scale figure, ive got the FH Double Evil, and he's a large lad. beside my generations scorponok, the scale between him and zarak would be perfect (depending on what shot of the show you look at lol)

    Scorponok is a great chug scale, and BZ is great for MP scale, its just the weird nature of having an identical character, whos history is a repaint of a massive guy, be canonically MUCH smaller.

    TF scale is such a fucking mess lol

    Man, I love in-hand pics :D  sadly, I have no space for such a massive beast, and prefer the classic colors (which I copped) so I shall be passing on this... but it still looks really nice, nicer than I was expecting from the CG shots and previous TT photos.

    Grand Max is only supposed to be a leader height. He was the same height as God Ginrai and Overlord in robot mode, so the LG-EX was too tall. If we go off Earthrise Optimus (7") as a base for scale, Grand Max should be about 13", Black Zarak should be near 16", combiners should be about 18", and both Fortress and Scorponok should be around 80". Majin Zarak could either be 12.5" head-to-toe/17"+ overall if you go off how tall Prime was in the Ark compared to Primal or 92.5" head-to-toe/119" overall if you go off Kingdom Primal.

    Personally I'm fine with GS Black Zarak since he looks great and I bet he'll look fantastic next to my Toyworld Grant, but I can see where the scale people are coming from.

    For mass releases Metroplex had one of his guns, the SDCC version had both.

    Also he looks great. Have Scorpy with the the Thigh and Rifle DNA kits, would grab those for BZ as well.

    I've been wanting a Majin Zarak ever since I saw him in the Beast Wars II: the movie in the early 2000's. Haslab, here's what your next Transformers offering should be:

    Just stunning. That much glossy black plastic - it feels rare in a contemporary toy, doesn’t it? Really superb.

    Yes and no. In Masterforce reference, Grandmax is indeed too tall but the Legends release, Grand "upgraded" himself this time to the same height as his big bro Fortress. With all the nasty side effects that comes from the extra size. So Takara "did" manage to justify Grand's now same size accuracy with Fortress.
