    Yeah that's true, I love it when that happens. Like in Beast Wars Transmetal Cheetor is a head taller than Tranmetal Rattrap and they are both deluxe class, I don't know if they tried to do that or if it just worked out that way due to bulk being distributed differently (rattrap has a pretty big backpack)

    Not quite, because the later waves will include figures from the other movies and a repaint of starscream. I think this line will last a year.

    I love everything about this line.

    I may be the odd opinion out on this one, but I love that Optimus. He has a bulky quality that I like for movie Prime, even if he is inaccurate. I was always one of the biggest preachers for scale and accuracy, now all I want is fun toys and interesting silhouettes.

    I love the heavy retool for Crowbar, it means he will look perfect next to Berserker, now all I need is Hatchet.

    I will get on board that deluxe Ratchet is disappointing size wise, though. Especially because we get Ironhide as a voyager and Jazz as deluxe. I hope a KO up sizes him to voyager.

    I need a full reveal soon, lest I spontaneously combust in anticipation.

    You think guys, it's about time Hasbro should release a new version of Jet Power Optimus Prime?
    A properly proportioned one? Or with Flight Tech from DOTM?

    Considering that there are 4 deluxes 1 voyager and 1 leader weve not even got any indication on who they might be I think your wrong.

    We know no deluxe beyond wave 2 and either wave 3 or 4 has a second unknown Voyager to a company either wave 3 ironhide or wave 4 starscream redeco not repaint they are only adding his allien tats.

    I can tell you its not.

    What's in wave 3 and 4 in terms of deluxe or leader is not figures from waves 1 and 2.

    Okay, I just didn’t understand why there would be two different lines where they’re remaking movie figures.

    idk prime looks like a solid voyager that will have an interesting transformation and looks pretty good tbh. i'll definitely buy him. and that starscream is just too good, will 100% sell my rotf voyager for this one.

    Is it bad that the things I'm most excited for in this lineup are the backdrops? I can't wait to actually have my movie figures look like they're standing somewhere other than the top of a dresser or shelf.

    could someone edit starscream to compare with dotm deluxe, rotf voyager and hftd leader? some people dont see the new one much different he is
    i have both the rotf(mold which i still love and will try to get more repaints of) and the dotm(which is on his way to my friend because i never ended up liking it) , and have handled and transformed several times the leader mold and i while impresive and all, it isnt perfect, the best molde, yes, but from my experience the new one, has bette rproportions arms and is overall imporved from all the other versions

    I mean I get why they're doing it, but it sucks because it totally fucks with my established scale from previous mainline figures. No way all my current deluxes will scale with these.

    I understand your frustration. At least there is a voyager Ratchet out there. Though if the 07 Ratchet just doesn't meet your standards on every other level, getting him for scale purposes isn't ideal. Personally I won't be building much more of a movie cast, the new ROTF Megatron has got me really excited though, I can't believe I just splurged out on the movie best one. I think it's my favorite movie Megatron design, that's only been bought into question recently because of what a great toy the TLK voyager Megs is and how it closely resembles the on screen model. As a voyager he's not going to fit in with my leader Starscream and MPM Prime at all but I'm just going to accept it for the individual piece that it is, sometimes as a scale nut that's the only way to keep sane.

    Seems like I'm gonna have to start a second shelf based on the new scale, which kinda sucks, but, what can I do at this point? Movie figures are all I collect anyway.
