    PE Mega Doragon is a majestic piece, but I feel like I'm playing with glass everytime I have to pose him. This is the perfect option for anyone who wants to actually "play" with their figure without them having to worry about it just breaking apart.

    I mainly worry about joint tolerances for this figure. But regardless I'm in all the way

    Interesting take on Megatron. He's gonna look tiny next to my Perfect Effect Mega Doragon & soon to arrive Perfect Effect Cryotek though lol. Then again, Mega Doragon makes most figures look small in comparison.

    Almost certain that's supposed to be 26 cm wingspan, not 36. At 12 cm tall, he'd be literally three times as wide as he is tall, which even with the wings fully spread, he clearly isn't.

    I actually would have liked him a bit taller.
    With the largest upgrades of the largest characters at 12 cm that doesn't leave them much room for variety in size.

    Doesn’t Legends scale stuff tend to fly a little more fast and loose with scale? I mean a standard Legends scale Prime would leave a Bumblebee at like an inch or two tall!!
    I always got the feeling it was more a case of “smaller figures are a bit smaller, larger figures are a bit larger but they’re all pretty close to a set height.”

    looks very good. Haven't bought the PE version because he looked too big and thus cumbersome, but this is nice.

    Downside is that with a robot size 11 cm it seems unlikely they will make more BW legends. Dragon Megatron towered over all other Predacons, so characters like Waspinator should be what? 2-3 cm?

    IF has their own scale chart, so most likely orther Predacons should be around their carbots height 9~10cm.

    Fair enough.
    I'm not used to collecting legends scale.
    Even so, the sizes varied a lot in the show. Especially with the upgrades in season two and three.

    Iron Factory has hinted recently they were making more BW figures. Would love to see transmetal 1 Cheetor (2 was ugly and funky)

    Kinda wish he didn\'t have the massive robo-phallus. From those pics I can\'t see it in beast mode but I\'m guessing it\'s a support for the dragon tail?

    Yeah it is a bit odd, but at least he shows his dominance. So I would love Transmetal Cheetor followed by Ravage and Tigatron remolds
