    Transmetal Megatron was approximately half the height of Transmetal II Megatron.

    I believe tigerhawk was quite a bit shorter than TM2 Megatron. Tm2 Megz and optimal Optimus were the tallest in BW since they merged their sparks with the giant deceptions and Autobots respectively. We've all seen that cast pic before no think tigerhawk is small in it.

    The real reason for my post is to ask if anyone thinks this is gonna happen or if it'll see serious delays. Seriously? No actual model or concept pics yet? I saw a story in my Google feed that there were new pics on show store z. I got excited. They may be new pics for SSZ, but they're not new pics and they're just the silhouette pics. What a bummer!

    He's noticeably shorter but not by a lot according to the unofficial scale posted earlier in the thread. I believe Optimal Optimus is a lot taller though.

    I know that Winged Dragon isn't to scale with Masterpiece Megatron but as long as Tyga Eagle is clearly taller than Masterpiece Megatron which is 25cm I'm OK with it.

    25cm is just too short to approximately scale with either Winged Dragon or Masterpiece Megatron. He's clearly much taller than Megatron in his first form.

    If we’re hoping to sub these JX offerings into our BW collections and expect/hope that JX will eventually give us Dinobot II, Rampage and Depth Charge then Tiger Eagle really needs to essentially be the same size as Winged Dragon with only about 1.5cm of wiggle room so no smaller than 28.5cm. Same goes for Rampage.
    I’d rather those three charactors were all made around the same height to allow for the shorter Transmetals to be made in true MP scale. It’s always better to fudge things a bit at the top end where the heights really went mad. An OpOp that’s just 2cm taller than Winged Dragon would satisfy me although I’m sure they could easily go to 35 before things start getting out of hand.

    Yes safer to have him 28.5cm+ so there's enough room for the remaining transmetals to fudge into the masterpiece line.

    I see TransArt has released a TM Optimus Primal which looks to be about right in scale so hopefully they'll continue with the smaller TM releases and JX can remain focused on the larger ones like OpOp, Dinobot II, Rampage etc.

    Is JXF even active? They haven't posted in quite a while. I thought it was pretty ballsy when they put their faces in that video - hopefully they haven't been weijianged

    He isn't? Optimal Optimus and tm2 Megatron were HUGE compared to the other beast wars because they took on a larger size after merging sparks with the their ancestor name sakes who were much larger than them. I think tm2 Megatron is to scale with all the MPs.

    He means he needs to be even bigger believe it or not! Sorry for bumping this thread! Really hoping for some further confirmation on this project!

    Yeah, we really need an update.

    But regarding the scale, and as others have mentioned, opop and dragon megs hand bianary sparks with huge autobots and decepticons respectively. Tigerhawk had a binary spark of a small and medium sized maximal. Larger still, but not as big as the leaders.

    He had a true binary spark, the OpOp and Megatron had 2 sparks in one body, there's a bit of a difference. Tigerhawk also had direct Vok intervention and posession (2 Vok at that) as part of his creation

    TMII Megatron is about double the height of his original and TM bodies.

    Takara won't make it, but they also don't want anyone to try and make a MP TigerHawk... Assholes...

    Maybe that's why DST, CangToys and TFC (their sister companies) make heavy stylized bots to avoid those problems.

    Well that sucks! What do they mean by license issues? It’s not like third party companies need permission to make the figures, they just avoid certain aspects of a character, like the name or faction symbols. This is a bummer. Hopefully it’s just on hold as it’s been a ridiculously long wait for this as it is. Come on JX we need tyga eagle in our collections STAT
