    Yeah, keep in mind that Blaster could sit comfortably within Cosmos on the show, with room to spare. Their scale is all kinds of wonky from episode to episode.

    Scale was my biggest gripe as a kid. Now I'm trying to keep things as close to what works as I can. I know my Dinobots are larger scale, but dinosaurs should be bigger. I'm just wondering where I'm going to go if I I ever need an Astrotrain. In the movie, all the Decepticons could fit inside and I believe the Constructicons were able to form Devastator in there (at least for a minute).

    That’s the one I have and I think he’s great!

    When I started legends collecting a few months ago I thought I’d be worried about scale, but now it’s basically anything that isn’t legends + for me. Between NA, MS, and IF there’s too much good stuff to worry about scale.

    Plus, in the cartoon there basically was no consistent scale at all. I think the three companies I listed scale well enough.

    Different strokes for different folks though.

    They don't seem too concerned about giving distance between their releases - they released six figures in April alone! (5 retail: Manero, Capoeira, Cyclops, Max blue, Max clear & 1 giveaway: Ion Storm Max)

    Sorry, I meant some distance between their release of a hypothetical Sideswipe & co. and the recent releases of the same characters from two other Legends companies.

    As far as I'm concerned, New Age can keep cranking them out as quickly as possible!

    Just thinking I don't feel like trolling through this entire thread, but does someone have a pic of Capoeira with Magic Square's Fevernova?

    Don't know who this Meister is, my first impression was this is Knock Out from Transformers Prime.

    What is it with red remolds I like? Didn't buy the Stepper and Shockwave but this red one is nice.

    Zoom-Zoom is not a true, living Transformer. He is a human-created artificial intelligence program based on data taken from the Autobot Jazz, placed inside a spare Mazda RX-8-model Alternator Transformer body. Jazz gave Zoom-Zoom his name (based on Mazda's advertising slogan), and treats him in many respects like a son or brother. He's even tried teaching Zoom-Zoom how to dance.

    Though Zoom-Zoom has a limited degree of intelligence and independent thought, he is combat-capable. His body is no different from Jazz's Alternator form save in coloration, so he can hold his own in battle but lacks experience or improvisational skills. As such, he requires steady supervision on the field. Hopefully, Zoom-Zoom's learning capabilities are enough to eventually overcome this weakness."

    Of course this mold isn't an RX-9, but that's OK because NewAge is not Takara.

    Jazz showed up at the post office today. Awesome figure. I still wish he were bigger but after seeing all the pics of him, I couldn't pass him up. He'll be a fun desk bot. I have New Age Bee so I'm not completely surprised by him, but he'll be a hard Jazz to match. That said, this is a character I'll end up double dipping on when MST or someone else releases one that will scale with the rest of the figures I have.

    Forgetting scale, it's amazing how much detail and articulation they packed into a figure at this size.

    To piggyback on this, Meister is Jazz's name in Japan.

    Didn’t have a chance to get alt mode pics, but here you go. I think they scale perfectly.

    Prime arrived today and he truly is a great looking figure. Just a little too big to stand beside my NewAge figures. I am going to have to sell him off and go with DX9's Dutch if I can.

    Shockwave is certainly not known for his transparency in governance.

    If only the had Targetmasters.
