    They are roughly the same size as ROTF scouts! How can Hasbro get away with this? I thought Knockout looked small, but when I put him next to scout Breakdown...well...you be the judge. I also attached pics with a REAL deluxe for comparison. These are truly sad times to be a collector.

    now let's see him in robot mode. just because vehicle mode is small doesn't always mean the robot is too.

    To be fair Knockout's vehicle mode is supposed to be a smaller car but yeah, since DOTM everything has gotten smaller.

    The pic doesn't really do this comparison justice. Barricade feels way more chunkier in your hands than Knockout.

    He may be tiny in Alt Mode, but he has an average sized bot mode so it's all good.

    I'm just saying that recently figures have noticeable shrunken down. Pretty soon Voyagers will be the size of Barricade and Deluxes will become the new scouts. Keep in mind that prices are also increasing, too.

    Then don't display or pose them with older figures. And I'm pretty sure Knockout is a mass shift toy.

    I double dog dare you to put Knock Out and Brakedown in robot mode, next to each other. While you're at it, Knock Out has got a pretty hefty weapon too, might let him wield it or stow it.

    Might also think about comparing him to the Classics BB mold, another Deluxe who is designed to look small next to other Deluxes in the same assortment. Cause Knock Out is the widdlest cutest Decepticon.

    Im just saying youll be more disappointed when the foc's come out. What I was saying is that deluxes from the movies were much larger than the deluxe figures from te 80's

    Didn't they shrink the Voyager class Prime and Bulkhead from the First Edition size to the current size too?

    What kills me is the cost of the Cyberverse figures. They're cheap little plastic pieces of junk yet they cost more than the Autobot cars did when I was a kid. Obviously that was a LONG time ago but still it's hard for me to comprehend.

    Size isn't everything. Consider complexity, parts and joint count.

    ^ There you go. Car mode is obviously tiny, but he's almost double the height of a scout figure.

    Yeah, I'm disappointed too that bots have gotten smaller and lighter overall.
