    At 1:54 scale, he'd be 11.15cm tall, so vs05 is about 0.85mm too tall for the scale of Magic Square/Newage.

    All of the Head Warrior releases have been about 12.5cm so far. I see no reason this one won’t also be.

    If you want them smaller, just grab the original Unique Toys Palm Collection versions.

    lol...but a lot of the NA bots have ball joints.

    also back to the secondary question. yeah i think the UT bots would be too small as well. they only look great when they are off on their own.

    Nice to see this guy, and to near completion of the ‘Con Headmaster trio.

    Regarding size, I’ve got the whole run of the original UT HM figures, and have picked up all of the MFT upscales so far, and yeah, of the two I’d say MFT works better in a Legends scale collection for me. They might be just a hair too large, but whether you’re talking about the cartoon or the toys, the non-junior Headmasters were pretty big. I like that these guys are about Optimus-sized in a general Legends lineup.

    Now, if some company ever gets around to doing Legends Headmaster Juniors, I’d definitely want them to be more carbot-sized.

    Cool. Looks like an upgrade in foot articulation but I wish these Headmasters would have better shoulders.

    If it helps any he'll have better upward shoulder articulation thanks to transformation.

    Yeah, I saw that. But what does that really get you? Nothing as significant as a butterfly would provide.

    But yeah... a cool point of articulation that would certainly be.

    Ditto. I was literally sitting here this morning contemplating pulling the trigger on Weirdwolf. Didn't do it though since a MS Seaspray/Beachcomber pack made itself available and I had eBay bucks to burn.

    I have Chromedome and rarely touch it because the articulation is subpar. I'll probably grab this one and definitely Mindwipe (because he's stupid cool) and call it a day - complete collection be damned.
