    Well after much consideration and the benefit of having waited for a while (and seeing everyone's photos and comments comparing and contrasting MS and NA's toon and toy versions), I've reached a decision. Since both MS and NA have their own pros and cons, I still want to try out both. I think NA's toy version looks way better than MS's, so I opted for: NA toy and MS toon. Excited to finally get them (well, eventually - have to wait for shipping now from China but I can wait a bit longer).

    i only wanted the toy version, but i would probably have done the same if i wanted both toy and toon. definitely NA toy over MS for overall looks, and again MS toon over NA given better design of the arms.

    Can one of you post a picture of these guys next to a G1 figure, so I can get a sense of scale? Any G1 figure from 84-85 will do.

    Heh, it still blows my mind whenever I see Legends against the old toys, particularly the combiner teams. Like they seemed bigger in my memory- granted I was smaller back then, but still! I mean, even the original carbots are like half the height of their current MP counterparts, and that's just crazy to me!

    Thanks.

    So about the height of Rumble/Frenzy, then.

    However, it probably wasn't a very helpful photo, since G1 Reflector isn't the most common figure. Sorry!

    Well for me it was probably the best comparison photo I've seen in this thread - and there have been plenty! Thanks for sharing it, very cool to see the original next to this modern version. Would you happen to have the Siege toy deco set as well?

    I don't know which that is, but the answer is certainly no! (I don't know anything about the Siege stuff.)

    Ooc did someone make a shoulder piece for Rear Window to give it the big shoulders like the g1 toy? Seems like it would be easy to do since there are two holes on his shoulders already.

    Cool. I have it too, and the NA version on the way, so I don't necessarily need the photos unless you want to post them up. Just thought it'd be fun to see all 3 together, if @mrspingly had it.

    Alas, the best I can do is to bring in Maketoys Visualisers, but they don't look very G1-toy.

    I never did get either MakeToys or Fans Toys versions, for whatever reason having them at MP scale (even though I do collect MP) mattered to me.

    With the imminent arrival of Magic Square and Newage versions, I will have 7 cameras in my collection: MFT x2 (Purple, black), MS, NA, Siege x3 (purple, toy, and Netflix scrapface). I would take a picture but I don't have an actual real camera! (J/K)
