    I don’t think so. 3rd party usually prefer either MP scale or small scale. For siege Astrotrain, I think the best match so far is LG59.

    Yeah that's what I thought, LG59 just doesn't seem worth it at the price it is at... was hoping i'd missed a third party option along the lines of this legends scale dude right here... ah well, sooner or later I'm sure a new one will come along ha ha... thanks for the reply -

    The best Blitzwing toy ever made! I can\'t wait, when MFT makes Sandstorm and Broadside.

    If you make a Broadside and a Sandstorm, I will buy a Broadside and two Sandstorms.

    The original Sandstorm was one of the very few early G1 toys I had as a kid. If somebody would make one that looked like it, and not basically an orange Springer, I would be all over it.

    This guy looks awesome. Judging my their Astrotrain, I suspect he'll be about a half head taller than MS Megatron?

    35 would make more sense. But 39 is still a good price in my opinion. I’m in.

    While that sucks, MFT quality has been going up overall, especially for the original designs.

    If they increase and improve the articulations and fixes minor issues that Astrotrain had, the price is not bad. But yes, I think it's a little bit pricey. At some point Astrotrain dropped the price at 20€ all over Aliexpress stores, then sold out, and again it costs 28€-35€.

    All these 3rd party legend scaled figures have such great designs... what I wouldn\'t give for them up upsize some of these to match Siege/Earthrise/Kingdom figures.

    Mechanic Toys and Mech Fans Toys (MFT) are having very weird relationship. I recalled Mechanic Toys said they had nothing to do with MFT when Astrotrain was released. Probably this explained why the ms line is so different from MFT's other KO products.
