    I believe TM2 Megs stands about the same height as Rampage, I think the only Transformer bigger than him in the show is optimal Optimus. I think. So he should be bigger than 43. I hope he is.

    Here’s some scale charts thanks to our local scale wizard @GALVATOM. This guy is 30cm to the top of the head and mp 43 is 25cm (Im pretty sure) so we have a good 5cm of height difference and then we have the top of the wings added as well to give us a bit more height. So I can safely say he should be bigger and broader than mp megs. And if this company where to give us rampage after tigerhawk he would probably be about 24, 25 or 26cm so if I’m doing This correctly a rampage would be about mp43s height or slightly taller like by 1cm or smaller by 1cm. Tigerhawk should be about 28 or 29cm to the top of the head so all of these should be really big figures. This is all me judging by that ruler and the scale charts I could be really, really wrong (hopefully not doe :p )

    Well there is a specific scene from Other Victories where Rampage grabs TM2 Megs threatening him and they stand eye to eye. Which is why I made that comparison, this chart has him about a head taller, interesting. Either way though, yesssss he will be a big boi, and mine!

    I'm don't know who I want them to do more after Tyga Eagle; Rampage or TM2 Dinobot? Really impressed with the mould of TM2 Megs. Truly a MP, has anyone digibashed it yet?

    That all sounds right based on our findings making the chart. Nice to see the missile launcher on top of Megs head is a bit higher than 30cm too judging by that picture next to the ruler.

    Beats me man, I don't know anything about toy manufacturing, I was just commenting on that post by Cheem the Rump on the previous page that had a translated quote from JX.

    I’d want tm2 dinobot the most but knowing that they’re doing megs and tigerhawk is very pleasing to say the least. I have a good feeling about this company. Also yeah I believe the pics we got from the company themselves where renders of what the color will look like.

    For sure every centimeter helps :) 

    So to the top of the wings he might be 40cm or just under its very hard to judge

    That wasn't directed at you. ;) 

    I'm just saying, that they should've had this all figured out beforehand. :lol

    Working in contracting based business as well, contractors can always make false promises, nothings guaranteed. They may have had a company ready to go then when they saw the proto he said no way.

    I drew this up a little while ago under the impression the very top of the helmet, missile launcher and all, would be 30cm off the ground. We now know that it's actually the visor that sits at 30cm. I foolishly cut the wing tips off making this image but without drawing up a new one it certainly looks like they'll be near 35cm if not more. Wingspan is going to be insane, eclipse the shelf type stuff.

    Haha no worries. I've heard it said JX has been part of other companies, I may be wrong. This release seems like the beginning of a new company so maybe it's just something they haven't sorted out yet because they wanted to have a near finished product produced before they had painters look at it. That's all guesses on my behalf though.

    I really hope this and Tyga Eagle are a success so they continue to do more, either TM or TM2, either way I'll be grateful.

    Well, MP-43 is already out for frame of reference and GALVATOM & company have already put forth extensive work into the scale chart. Rampage is supposed to be larger than TM Megatron, so Rampage better be larger than MP-43. I honestly don't mind that TM2 Megatron ends up a bit smaller than the scale chart suggests, since the scales of some of the larger characters got ridiculous in season 3 (and not in a good way). However, JX really has no excuse at this point to produce a Rampage that is smaller than TM Megatron, much less MP-43. If he ends up smaller than MP-43 as you suggest is possible, then I will be disappointed. Personally, I'm hoping Rampage ends up being 28 cm at the top of the head, give or take 1 cm.

    More on topic though, TM2 Megatron is looking fantastic so far. It's too bad JX is having trouble finding a suitable partner to meet their standards for a fully colored product. However, JX's standards being so high has me hopeful for the final outcome of the product.

    PE-DX09B Psychro Knight from Perfect Effect stands 25.4CM/10" tall in robot mode and is made of PC-ABS and die-cast parts.

    30cm equals 10.8" so this is still a bit smaller than I actually thought, I was thinking around 12" to give it the more BW MP height it would need bcuz I dont think BW Megs is short enough to have the green line distance between the 2

    What sort of wonky knock off rulers are you looking at? 30cm is basically 12 inches.
