    Since MFT are not knocking off the MS Sideswipe or Red Alert, I doubt they'll do their Stunticons.

    I wonder how big they will make their Sideswipe? If it's bigger than the MS version I would have to wonder what the point was? Have they stated if Kup was oversized or not?

    Yes they have. He's slightly shorter than Hot Soldiers Ironhide and Ratchet.

    Could you maybe elaborate a little more on what you meant about not seeing the point with MFT's Sideswipe being bigger?
    I'm not sure I quite understand.:confused:

    Because bigger to me doesn't work for my collection or what I feel a Legends plus collection could be. I am entitled to my opinion. Besides making someone like Sideswipe bigger makes no sense and niether does Kup, they weren't big bots. Ironhide kinda was a bigger bot.

    I don't think MFT has ever cared about scale. I think they just like selling toys.

    Alright, cool.
    Actually, since you mentioned your opinion on Kup's height, what do you think the Constructicons' individual heights should be?
    Do you see them as big bots, just as tall as Ironhide, or about a head shorter than him?

    I personally like the size they are but bigger about the size of Ironhide is also fine. They are construction vehicles so I would imagine them bigger than a van. Devastator is hard because the combined form was always unrealistic sized compaired to what 6 bots combined would be

    Also, in case anyone is interested...….

    I have a 3 pack of the MF26 Sharkticons available. The catch is that it has 2 of the pink clear leaders and only 1 regular version, I bought 2 packs so I could get 3 of the regular versions. OCD is a big pain in the booty sometimes...……...

    Attachment bracket for Swoop so you can use a stand:

    On Taobao some sellers are offering a stand bundled with Snarl (for an extra cost), for example:
