    Yeah, I just measured them. I actually didn't realize they were slightly different sizes as well. I'm in the same boat that I would like to see what Maketoys does. MAAS Toys wasn't even on my radar until I picked up Skiff and Gold at TF Con and I was surprised by how nice they were in hand.

    @Spence, I think a few folks have expressed my opinion pretty well, but just to say it another way...you say that other companies are doing traditional models already and so Maas is doing something different. The point here is that no one (other than IT years ago) have done decent G1 Tetra Jets, and there's obviously a demand for it. If there were already one or two nice tetras out there, and you were coming out with this new take, then that'd be one thing. But coming with a new take with the old take hasn't actually been done, doesn't work! From the business side, if you did MP G1 Tetras, you could sell them for $100 a piece easily, and you would sell say 5000 (I have no idea what the numbers of 3P sales are, but just stay with me!). But what you have here, you will probably have to sell at $50-60, and will probably sell about 1000. If the designers can't make a decent G1 tetra, then that's just too bad...but all of our point is that the majority want an awesome G1 Tetra and we don't have it.

    I'd just like to say that I like the look of these a fair bit, different, yes, not G1 Tetra, sure, but they look like nice figures nonetheless imo

    I guess in some ways, I literally asked for this!?

    I never heard of MAAS until about five minutes ago...

    Those rendered images / prototype images on page 1 of this thread are pretty awesome!!

    Let's hope these guys are as awesome in hand and quality as their renders appear to be!!

    Sweet. Hopefully we get more pictures soon to see just how this guy will scale with CHUG, since 20cm is too small for an MP Starscream.

    Thank you MAAS for catering to the CHUG collectors in this MP laden world.
    Depending on the price, I may get this. Looks pretty cool, but I figure a Cross Dimension Starscream is in the wings somewhere which is what I'm really holding out for.

    Perhaps the sides of the cabin could do with being a bit narrower to evoke a Tetra-jet more,
    But I like them they look somewhat like a compromise between the War Within & Cybertron Starscream design and the Tetrajets - with a Usual "Seeker" Robot mode.

    So yeah I can find a space for them in my head-canon.

    That might be cool....
    Although I prefer my seekers deluxe. I hope they are straight up G1 like the cartoon. Any other design would be a fail.

    IDK if this works for CHUG either TBH. 20cm actually makes these seekers taller than Cross Dimension Rioter Despotron which is not ideal. And to say the least, they'll tower over mainline voyagers by an inch.

    If it is CHUG scale, I might consider picking it up. If it's CHUG scale AND they do Earth mode versions too, I just might not be able to resist.

    That's not CHUG, 7.8" makes him taller than Toyworld Orion and almost the same height as MMC Tyrantron.
