    Nope.

    Fair enough that you weren't here for the original discussion, but this thread has since been renamed the "LIVE-ACTION Movieverse Appreciation Thread", a category that SS86 doesn't fall into. There's a specific thread for discussing the subline

    Studio Series '86 Appreciation Thread

    Demolishor, Devcon, and maybe the Dinobots would fit that size description pretty well, but due to Scavenger and Grimlock having existing leader-class molds I'd count those as very unlikely.

    Unfortunately, as much as I'd like Devcon, I'd count that unlikely as well, particularly as a Commander.

    80 dollar worm? I think if you just bought one of those giant gummy worms from online you could have a good and delicious stand-in. Not sure if it would last though.

    Not nearly enough name recognition to justify that, plus it really wouldn't be that fun if I'm being honest. It can't transform, doesn't seem to even be sentient, and was really only a set piece.
    Doesn't matter what you think the decision's been made. Not trying to be rude but please drop it.

    I think Driller would have to be titan class at minimum, and I think even then the usual mass of a titan figure would be enough for like the front half of the driller.

    Easily the best articulated live-action transformer in my collection.

    I only hate Christmas because i work in retail.
    All of SS for my collection is pretty much done for the year. I have no plans for any other live action figures for the time being, although i'll admit it is kinda tempting to get some off-screen figures.

    I don't know why, but the Anime pin makes this picture so much funnier.

    Original Firage is in original trilogy scale (more or less). The OSKO is more or less MPM scale.

    Would you prefer it if Devcon was a commander class figure or a leader class figure? (If he's ever made)

    it's weird, whenever I ask about him I see loads of support, honestly I think he's the most desired SS figure from most people I ask.
