    The most Transformers can get physical is pure, unadulterated, sweaty, intense, passionate...



    Hand holding.

    That thing looks like something from Transformers Energon.

    Deathsaurus was the only reason I bought Issue #5. But the first part of this mini makes the follow up feel kinda predictable. So I hope this wasn't just to market CJ's Earthrise figure only.

    IMO Deathsaurus should be an Overlord, Nemesis Prime or Straxus type threat. Not some random Con of the week that CJ will probably shoot in a cave with his bazooka at the end.

    Plus Deathsaurus is one of the few remaining Con's who deserves the ORIGINAL LEADER CLASS height if not Commander class, same as Star Saber if HasTak is listening or cares.

    ...i know he's simply reuising the previous IDW character model, but that dezarus is a spitting image of the planet X figure...

    I agree... especially in the way that Overlord is sort of fiendishly evil and selfish, I think Deathsaurus would be an interesting counterpoint boss villain who has an underlying sense of honour.

    But whatevs. It would be cool to get a good updated figure...

    If the TFV scaling is to be followed, Deathsaurus should be no shorter than 11 inches, Commander Class. Deathsaurus is just slightly smaller than Liokaiser a 6/12 con combiner and he and Star Saber are both bigger than G1 Jetfire

    I hope we get a generations figure of Deathsaurs base off the G1 appearance as well with Star Saber and Victory Leo.Also if this is possible we need a new Liokaiser that is proper.

    True. But judging by Deathsaurus size in #5, I'd say he's only Voyager class height on that.

    So I'd be REALLY PISSED if HasTak simply made Deathsaurus a Snap Dragon retool (I'm sure some swine at a Hasbro board meeting recommended it) instead of finally giving him his due.

    Idk, with CJ as a small Deluxe(minibot), in this shot, Deathsaurus to me looks far bigger than Voyager, that looks Commander to me although I have not seen other shots or pages so if hes smaller consistently in the comic, I'm not aware TFG5-KZ-001.jpg

    Now Deathsaurus looks MASSIVE on this cover (and that's the height that I'm willing to pay $50-$80 for) but sadly he's not this big in the actual panels with CJ.

    I wish in some way or form to have a Starscream and leozack team up, i mean they were practically made for each other,
    ( they both have cronic backstabbing disorder)

    His design on that cover is also different from how he looks in the actual artwork inside the comic from what I've seen. I wouldn't be shock if this is a sneak peek for him being in WFC3 as a Commander like how we got a sneak peek of Galaxy Upgrade Optimus Prime for Siege last year in the IDW comics

    Hopefully, I personally do not feel that you can accomplish all of his legacy features at Leader Class, you could theoretically make him a leader and sell his Breastmasters as a Micromaster 2 pack but then they would undoubtedly suffer unless they were exclusives with original tooling and more expensive than $9.99

    At Commander Class, you could have all legacy features including Breastmasters capable of weapon modes etc

    With Hasbro trying more then ever to keep certain characters their respective characteristics intact I'd say it's a given that he'll be a Commnader class in order to retain them.
