    Yeah. Big Convoy is basically Maximal Cable and the Gung Ho crew are the New Mutants/X-Force.

    Is it possible to fold his tail in robot mode so that it doesn't jut out backwards so much? My Beast Wars shelf is pretty shallow, so a slightly more compact mode would be ideal.

    I just encountered this problem as I set mine on the shelf - the tail sadly doesn't bend 90 degrees, it only wiggles a bit side to side. I could get a bit more out of it by posing the body at an angle, thus "leaning" into the bend. That way the front of the foot is 15cm away from the wall. The shelf itself is 28cm so I have space to display figures in front of him, which you would want because he’s huge.

    I will post pictures tomorrow.

    Bummer, but he's still really cool so I'll have to try to sort something out.

    Rodimus has plenty of black repaints that can be made.

    As for Skylynx, someone has said it before, many will say it later, and it deserves to be repeated until we get it:

    So yeah this toy rules, damn. Super solid construction, each mode is great, they combine together flawlessly (Magmasaur mode too - it has in fact several unique ports and tabs) and the robot mode is amazing. Wow that's one big block of awesome.

    Still can't believe we got a new freaking Magmatron, this is the best thing Transformers for me in a good while. And the poor Predacons that tagged along in the two-packs I bought when Encore Big Convoy was released finally have their leader!

    Has anyone compared his weight with other Commander Class figures?

    Optimus Colossal? That works as a reference to the size of mammoths.

    Colossus Prime works... don't think I've seen it suggested before.

    It is indeed! You have to lift up the top flap and hinge the tail up to get the clearance but you can get it to sit flat

    Can I just get Rodimus repainted into Movie Rodimus colors?

    Like he didn’t become all burnt orange and brown! You gave us a Hot Rod in pink, now given me Commander Rodimus :)

    IIRC, SS86 Hot Rod in 'toon colours was never actually released. He was supposed to be part of the second wave of Velocitron, but got cancelled.

    You're doing Primus' work, son.

    Looks like Elphaorpha in relation to Legacy Magmatron would be about SS86 Dinobot-sized. Big Convoy would be about Kingdom Galvatron sized, sans back kibble.
