    WEI JIANG is now my favorite 3rd Party company. Steal a product and make it bigger and better.... Make 'Merica Great Again (or something silly like that)

    I voted no for the simple fact, they aren't gonna change anything and instead are just simply going to Upside the original molds which are loaded with many issues.

    True, but the comics had every nearly the same size besides minibots. And the cartoon had 3 episodes so we never got an accurate picture of their size in relation to classic Autobots.

    I think a lot of the "they're the same size as car bots" mentality comes from the Chrome dome and Prowl partner ship in IDW. But I think a case can be made that their larger size (larger than car bots) works since they are pure cybertronian forms.

    If weijiang does the whole line, I could probably get all of them for the price of under 3 original TR deluxes. With better quality plastic and diecast too.

    I voted yes.....on the slim chance they expand this and make a Voyager TR Blur. That deluxe is friggin' short!

    But also, V. Hardhead would be pretty cool.

    The transformation on Skullcruncher obviously having been changed gives me hope they have improved them as well as upsizing them.

    I would like to have an oversized Laser Optimus (scale the cab to be around voyager sized semi cab) in Scourge/Nemesis colors.

    An upscaled TR Broadside/ Tidalwave would be pretty sweet; although I'd prefer they did an upscaled version of the original Armada Tidalwave with a wee bit more articulation.

    I'd love to see them actually upscale the beasty TM figures like Fangry, Sawback and Repugnus.

    EDIT: Actually while I'm in full wishful thinking mode, actual bodies for the Titan Master guys like Squeezeplay, Fangry & Terry-the-bull

    Maybe if we are lucky, although I'm still holding out hope that Hasbro might give us an official version at some point.

    Scale has never been a thing for me. I feel it limits what I'm already tight on in terms of purchases to size up everything. Skullcruncher for example would be awesome bigger because it would make me think of the big ass Crocodile from Lake Placid. Twinferno should be giant because he's a dragon and dragons are big guys. Hopefully they do some of the headmaster figures too and give us a OS Repugnus HM.

    I love it that i don't have to care about the "are headmasters taller then carbots" discussion because of this wonderfull news.
    I'll take a voyager of every OG Headmaster, Twinferno, Megatronus and maybe even Scourge and Triggerhappy if Wei Jiang provides.

    If I squint, it appears that Brainstorm is holding two matching guns, possibly from the front of the vehicle mode like the original G1. Definitely interested in him. Possibly Mindwipe. Other than those two, I don't think that there are any--

    Oh. If they do a good Quake, I'm definitely in. But are they going to do Quake or Krok? One can hope....

    If they are going to be modifying these please do a Twinferno, make the head slide down into the chest cavity instead of partsforming and give him wrist swivels. I will be first in line to throw my money at you.

    I vote a hearty yes. As I said in the KO thread, I'm happy enough with the Hasbro versions and will keep them in my CHUG collection and add these to my "MP or close enough for my taste" collection. I've never cared about 'official scale', preferring what's aesthetically pleasing to my eyes (usually either bot mode or vehicle mode uniformity of scale, but even that's not concrete). If these come about and are as good as other W-J offerings I have, I'll probably even get multiples of some for customs.
