    As long as it is followed by a Skids and Whirl. The MTMTE designs for those two have been my favorite IDW redesigns.

    If anyone was up for it, it's IF (and I guess MMC).

    I just discovered this topic today. I can see me getting the IF DJD over MMC's offering. I think the DJD were pretty interesting, but only interesting enough to collect at legends scale and not with the rest of my CHUG collection. It's also easier on my wallet than MMC's offerings.

    Ok, stupid question time!

    I'm new to the game here and only just starting my collection, and I don't really know the scale of stuff by names coz I have a tiny peanut brain :) 

    Would it be possible for someone to give me some sort of a guess of how big they are likely to be in inches? For the boys and combined form maybe?

    i would've loved for that to happen using the FP Ninseticons idea, add inferno and waspinator and we'd be in business
    IF makes legend scaled figures, i think the combined form might be about 9-10in while the big 2 should be around 6.5-7.5in and the small to around 4.5in an 5-6 for Tarn though i could be completely off as honestly i've no idea but these are my best guesstimates, i know it's been talked about already in the thread though so look around the first couple of pages

    BBTS has the sizes of these figures on each of their pre-order pages. Tarn will be about 4", Helex and Tesarus will be about 6", and Kaon and Vos will be about 3.5"

    That picture is especially helpful. Thank you:) 

    Well, they arent gonna fit in with any of my current stuff (all my current stuff is either deluxe or voyager size) but maybe i'll try out some legend class stuff to see if i like the scale.

    ....is there really gonna be a DJD race? MMC's fit in CHUG and (if you squint) MP scale both, and they're huge, weird and complicated characters, especially for the big guys.

    Not that I'd gripe about getting a better Vos, but I don't see any other company trying for the DJD in any other scale.

    Unless we're talking OS KO of these guys, which I'd put money on.

    Today I found that the names for IF DJD are the names of stars in the Big Dipper constellation.
    Big dipper has seven stars and DJD also has seven members, so I am guessing we'll get a Dominus (pet) and Nickel from IF too and they would be named Alioth and Megrez.

    Nice catch! Though, I wonder how they’ll incorporate Dominis and Nickel into the gestalt, if at all.

    Primus, I want that combiner...
    If someone gets it and hates it for no good reason, plz send it to me... XD
    Does anyone notice the combined mode is basically a scaled up Tarn with armor? And the head is a combo of all the head designs, mostly Tarn and Vos, I think. I guess if all your other figures are deluxe size or something, maybe you can combine them, and use them as a souped-up deluxe Tarn? It could be to compete with MMC.

    Just a thought.

    It's a really cool combiner though, and I love combiners!

    I believe it is same size as their Bruticus, which is Voyager sized. I hope it is close enough to MMC Tarn.

    Not that I would complain if they did it. but Im really not sure a legends scale Nickel would be feasible, unless it was just a single piece accessory for them.
