    It shouldn't be because by the nature of the transformation, he should be more complex than Armada Optimus.

    With how much dinosaur is hanging off his back and rear end, I’d say he easily could have been a head taller with some rearranging. Idk just rubs me the wrong way seeing a 3 dinosaur combiner be shorter than prime.

    But BW is not meant to scale with either G1 or other continuities figures, is meant to scale with itself (and even that is not that accurate since the Mainframe show doesn't follow the same scale as either BWII or BWNeo).

    I mostly just go off what feels about right. And this just felt off to me personally. Also this is legacy, which has all continuities mixing with each other, so the entire line is technically sharing scale.

    But I do suppose the size would make more sense within its own universe.

    It's not like you're stacking them end-to-end or something.

    You make a comment like that, and it's like you've never seen what Magmatron looks like in your life until this moment.

    You're always so quick to make comments like that, and quite frankly, you sound ridiculous doing it. It's such an obvious bit at this point.

    I think the height is good. Maybe the original Big Convoy figure will scale well with it.

    I’m genuinely not familiar with Magmatron and was not aware of his existence until I saw the legacy figure. So yes, It’s exactly like I had just seen him for the first time.
    I was just a tad disappointed a figure that looked larger in pictures turned out shorter than what I expected. That’s it, there’s no bit going on beyond you being on my case over it for no reason.

    I’m not familiar with BW neo’s character or scale or lore or anything. I was just interested in a cool dinosaur combiner. I’m still interested in getting him. A tiny bit of brief disappointment in size being made out into something it isn’t is getting just as tiring.

    This is my first commander purchase ever (none really caught my attention but prime came close) and I like to think that depending on if I like this or not I might get the original and his opponent

    No, you've been active in this thread since November. That's plenty of time to have seen all the pictures and understand how he combines, but to say point-blank that "three dinosaurs combining should be bigger" is like saying you've only been relying on eyewitness testimony all this time to mentally create an image of him, and are only just now finding out the reality.

    You act like your pattern of behaviour isn't obvious. You've always got these "innocent" comments just as a figure is released that amounts to "teehee, HasTak is so silly. Where did all the quality go?" Your snide insinuations are tiring, always acting like the rug was pulled out from under the fandom at the very last minute, when everyone could plainly see exactly what they were getting into day 1.

    I didn’t tend to spend my pass time googling the intricacies, scale, and lore of every toy I saw.

    I see cool toy, I want to buy it. That’s what I’m in the hobby for. This looks like cool toy, I want to buy it. Simple as that.

    The very first post in this thread is a size comparison.

    In the time it took you to write any of the multiple posts about this figure's size, you could have goggled the original instead.

    I wouldn't rule out either of them, honestly. Especially with Magnaboss having loose ties to G1. Though Rail Racer may wind up over in MPG if Takara thinks Raiden did well enough.

    A Legacy version of Magnaboss and Tripredacus would be amazing. I'd be super curious to see how they'd "upgrade" some of the more weird and limited aspects of those character designs, especially Ironhide/Santon.

    Welp, it's a pretty expensive couple of weeks for some of us, what with both Takara sets, Super Ginrai and this assortment of wrong 'uns.

    I think I'm going to need to take a break for a while. But Magmatron looks pretty great, I have to say. He's just uniquely ridiculous isn't he, and that makes him all the more endearing.

    You reminded me of insectitrain and I’m so glad the bot benders figured that out
