    And all of them are too big to scale with the MP-11 jets.

    Blah blah mp10, blah blah jets

    Cars should be car-sized. Duh.

    Scale notwithstanding, I have no interest in paying $65 for a scout. Small toys suck.

    I payed $40.

    At least the other cars are glorified Voyagers. You can somewhat-ish justify that$$$ because it's from overseas. If they ever hit here, I would hope to not spend not much more than current Voyager prices

    But that is just a re-issue of MP-08, that doesn't count, doesn't make it a whole new MP-10+ mold. If Takara/Hasbro makes an MP Grimlock v2, they will surely make it bigger than MP-10, and thus more uniform scale will persist with all the new MPs since MP-10+

    As I said in my first post and those after, I'd be okay with one that was slightly out of scale. I'm just worried that it's going to be more than slightly, which is why I said I'd like to see pictures of him and Prowl or some other Autobot in vehicle mode.

    I suppose it's possible that Takara managed to do just that, but with out pics, I can only assume he's pretty small.

    I'm fine with the size/scale.

    Not happy with the price.

    Don't want the Spike thing.

    But I'll keep my pre-order and likely sell the spike armor to recoup some of the costs.

    Thank you for posting this photo, it completely sums up how excited I am for MP Bumblebee. Look at that classics one, there's no comparison. Art Feather, Bii, they don't compare at all to MP-21. This is the best Bumblebee I've ever seen, thank god he's finally getting a release and at a perfect size.

    Sorta tempted by Cubex Huff now if they fix their paint issues in the next run.

    I dunno... if it's a part of this series and numbered with this series, it counts.

    Can anyone find that TRU packaging?

    pretty sure I posted the most accurate scale to prowl already, but this works. (sorta) considering Super gobot Bugbite and MP BB seem to be just about the same size in alt mode an all.

    I love the design and think the size is perfect. BUT if I accept the chug and 3rd party figures as my masterpiece minicons I can save a lot of money. I know this is better but is it better enough to start replacing the 6 minicons I already have great figures for? But I could just swap the ones I feel need replacing at which at this time is none. I love this figure but I'm not sure I love it enough to start down that slope.

    No problem :) 

    ..and since MP Bee is preety much the same size as Classics, I'd say that MP Rumble/Frenzy is roughly the same size as Spike in exosuit:

    Which suits me just fine :) 

    And I totaly understand how you feel about Huff.. He suits perfect scale and esthetics wise, but I'm also turned away by quality issues... :/

    Ok, especially after looking at these photos I get the scale issue.

    It's just that he is so small.
    Plus, is anyone else worried about breakage issues?

    Here's a question: suppose they do Cliffjumper: what will he be paired with?
    And I always considered Cliffy to be a red VW. CAn someone show me screengrabs showing him to be a Porche?

    Not sure if it looks like a Porsche but it's definitely not a VW.

    Thanks.:) 
    Dont look like a Porche to me. Dont look like anything to me, really- especially when JAZZ is clearly a Porche.

    I dunno- I'd predict a VW repaint for Cliff because it's a short looking vehicle.
    Customizer Wheeljack did a Porsche CJ, and while nice in its own right just didn't evoke G1.

    Attached a screengrab of Ratchet. We expecting him to be this large?
