    They could cover all the figures with battle damage?

    Spychangers at $20-25 a piece as deluxes I’ve got no interest in. At $10 each as Cores, I’ll buy at least one of each mold.

    Small and simple scale is underappreciated. Especially assuming you can fit them all on Magnus. Extra play value

    I never watched RID long enough to even see them. I’m just going by the toys I had. Core class all the way for me.

    Ox is further back in that shot. They're isn't much of a difference between them. Both the Car Bros and Spychangers are shown to be the same size as the Predacon Trio (besides Slapper, who's hunchbacked)

    Transformers Robots in Disguise (2001) – Episode 16 – Volcano.jpeg

    The original toys, which were designed without proper scaling in mind should have no say in how big modern versions of these characters should be. And Hasbro is about doing things in scale these days for the most part.

    I'll accept Core Class Spychangers, but I'd rather have Deluxe scale.

    I'd be in for a T-AI figure has an unlockable tier.

    I think there was only that JP Botcon fig and that weird creepy KT statue thing.

    Why are you all so fixated on T-AI?

    The original Spychangers are right there to satisfy that desire. Let new versions do something new and needed.

    You guys talking about T-AI has got me thinking about that one Brazillian dude that used to post fan art here 20+ years ago: Cheetah-something, I think his name was?

    Ah, memories...

    I mean, Hotwheels compatible Transformers WOULD be cool to get again in the same way. That is ground I am willing to retread.

    Main character. Small thing to easily add to the set. Prime has titan master compatibility. Make a titan master style t-ai for further play value

    The real issue with Spychangers is that six of fundamentally very similar figures within the same size class in a short timeframe is a tall order. They'd probably wind up getting split across exclusive packs or something, maybe 2-3 making it into the standard retail assortments, and the others in box sets, or some other similar degree of creative planning.

    True scale is going to be a crapshoot, anyways, with Omega Prime's scale already on the large side, and the Combiners a complete impossibility. I'd much rather a set of six relatively-affordable Cores, than six expensive and wholly-uninteresting Deluxes. Or maybe split the difference, and release them like the Clone sets, allowing them into the old Legends-scale.

    Personally because she was a character in the show and I would like if she was recreated as an actual Transformer.

    I know about the Sakamoto-likes though.

    If they do Spy-changers I want deluxes. I don't really like cores, they feel cheap and small. A deluxe feels nicer in hand and has more room for articulation.

    G1 Jazz didn't also have the previous issue of being out of scale with his contemporaries. The Spychangers do. Why settle for fixing one thing by just adding articulation when you can make them the right size as well.

    He is further back in that shot. The group was standing behind Fire Convoy and the Car Bros in that scene after the Predacons ran off. Any actual variance between the Car Bros is negligible, and definitely not Core to Deluxe scale difference. Not even Minibot Deluxe to normal Deluxe difference.

    The only reason people think about the Spychangers being a different size at all is because of the toys, nothing else. Nobody would even consider them to be differently sized from the Car Bros if it were just up to the animation. Cores would be an insult. Besides that, Deluxes get redecos far more than any other size class, you can forget about any of the original GoBots color schemes if they get released as Cores.

    Core Iguanus and Bombburst have been among the best-feeling toys in the last couple of years, and showcase a level of articulation on par with their larger counterparts.

    Bomburst is hands down just one of the best figures of the WFC+ era. Top 10, for sure.
