    I honestly doubt we'll be getting a second Bugatti Drift. We're probably lucky to be getting the helicopter version.

    On another note, I really wish they'd retool that into Prime Airachnid...

    That's the thing. I'm not sure if their devastator is closer in scale to the movie than the SS one will be, cause I don't remember what the official height is. But the individual robot and vehicle modes range from being too big, to too small. Because Devastator in the movie was a massive cheat:

    If you wanted individual Devastator components that are in scale with other SS bots AND with this frame, you'd need a fucking Titan class Hightower. And also, you wouldn't be able to combine them at all. Because in combined mode, hightower shrinks down to the size of a small car:

    No Devastator made up of robots with vehicle and bot modes can be 100 percent in scale at all times. It's literally impossible.

    I don't think he shrunk that much. In that shot, he's further back from the camera.

    The crane he's based off of is about 30~ feet long. It's just that the camera angle really blows his size up.

    I was unaware.

    This post is quite subdued. No exclamation points and only one in package pic.

    Hold on there. I didn't say in scale with the movies. I said in scale with Studio Series. Remember that SS Starscream is actually kinda tiny compared to what a jet of that kind is supposed to scale at. Yet he looks good with the other SS bots.

    I don’t blame you. I try to get doubles of my all-time favorite characters/figures too. Sometimes it’s not feasible due to price or rarity. But when it is possible, you bet I double up

    did a quick little mock-up of how a SS Driller could work (probably never gonna happen but it's fun to imagine)

    [​IMG]

    Main body is a big tube with swivel hinges. 4 tendrils that are articulated like a MonsterArts Godzilla tail. The buzzsaws and the ring of teeth on the main head would be soft plastic, and have some mechanism that you can rotate them.

    I'm sure it's big enough.
    I intend to have a second set of constructicons to keep mib.
    Was just lucky i had a tax return at the time.
