    The aesthetic of the mold in both modes clearly indicates Jetfire/Skyfire was the intended character. The seekers were just money milking the mold. Leader class has always been a love/hate scale. The scale makes sense for characters like Ultra Magnus, Jetfire, Ginrai, and Overlord. The scale makes zero sense for characters like Megatron, Soundwave, and the seekers. Yet Hasbro always mixes them up and never really gives Leader class a definitive purpose. Its it a scale for large characters? Or is it a scale of its own for fan favorite characters? Hasbro had similar indecision with the legends scale as well. Why would bumblebee, shrapnel, optimus prime and starscream all be the same size?

    Maybe it was to give Iron Factory some cheaper competition.

    3rd partys made legends a cartoon accurate scale similar to CHUG or MP. But Hasbros legends scale has always been a mix of different characters with disregard to the cartoon scale. If Prime is legends scale, then Bumblebee should be half the height, but how small can you really make them? Iron Factory is kind of shying away from making mini-bots I reckon?

    I did the shoulder fix, but I'm wondering if it is a mistake... his chest sticks out so there is not enough clearance for front wheels in alt-mode... he can't roll properly???

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    so what's going on with counterpunch?

    any one have the message that says - Not yet shipped. Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date?

    Newage's Flipper is only 2" tall. I guess that's about as small as you can get.

    My order finally changed.  Says it\'ll arrive on the 20th, but still doesn\'t say it\'s been shipped.  Also, the listing no longer has Amazon as a seller option, only two options to buy him used through Amazon Warehouse.  I get the feeling that on the 20th I\'m gonna get notified my order was cancelled...

    Shoot wish I saw your reply earlier. Before you do that, you may want to join a local transformers group on Facebook. Depending on your luck, you may have a fellow collector nearby that wont gouge you.

    This amazing guy sold me one at cost on a fb group. It was opened, but I didn't care. Was gonna play with him anyways.
