    The PCC part is a feature. Doesn't mean Chaos Paladin is not CHUG. TFC Toys Phlogeus (Rampage), even has the PCC connector features.

    In any case, people will want have a bigger figure of Chaos Raven, no matter what, and that's fine. We've seen some of these legends figures get KO'd. If that's what you want, then go ahead and wait for it to be KO'd.

    Also, bonus points for the gross misrepresentation of what happened in the other thread.

    Crappy Voyager Starscream revealed. I suggest that Hasbro could have done better, and yes, give NA as an example of what engineering is possible. At no point suggesting that everyone buys it.

    Someone else says how they've never gotten an F-15 Starscream in 12 years of collecting, that they're desperate for one, and how they'd even considered MP-11, so I knew he wasn't limited to just CHUG.

    Responding to ONE specific person who is obviously looking for a good G1 Starscream, irrelevant of scale, I reassure him that the NA figure is amazing and has all the articulation he could want and great accessories.

    Some clown chimes in (oh ya, it was Mattymo...) with how you have to "pretend" its Starscream... as if you have to pretend any more or less with an official toy?

    And then a few other CHUG/MP elitists jump on the bandwagon.

    But sure, I'm the dude who did that.

    For the record I have nothing against MP or CHUG collectors. It's all just toys and we should collect and play with whatever makes us happy. I just don't understand why peeps come into every legends thread I follow and start yelling "make it bigger!"
    Thanks goodness for the ignore feature. Hope there isn't a limit.

    That's just how people are. They want something to suit their needs/wants.

    I still have Chaos/Paladin as my Fallen. I’ll use this guy for a legends scale fallen. There’s a place for everything.

    Well, Frieza wanted to use the dragon balls to grow five inches.

    THIS, but then also scale down the minifigs so it all matches the sunbow scale chart!

    "Why isn't this bigger? I want it for my CHUG/MP collection! Whine!!"

    The answer is simple: Legends scale toys are cheaper to produce and thus less risky to make the more obscure characters!

    So before you prep your next whine fest about a Legends Rung or Fangry, just remember that the odds of seeing obscure characters in MP scale is too low to measure, and the odds of CHUG are also low (when Hasbro can simply sell you 3-4 versions of Optimus a year, instead!).

    But do consider Legends scale. Great detail, small figures fit a larger roster on shelf, and prices that don't break your budget (usually! :lol ).

    I expect anything coming from IF to be legends scale. They don't make anything else do they? Regardless, Hasbro will certainly tackle the Fallen again giving they're making the most obscure TFs these days. Monkey's paw we'll get Studio Series Fallen first though....

    I hadn't given thought to a Legends Rung and now I'm hoping we get one at some point in the near future

    A lot of re-used parts but pretty smartly placed and recolored
