Finally! Some good news. I really want them to complete this beast.
Speculative size, but SS Mixmaster in robot mode is ~15 cm tall which with the x1.64 oversize is ~24.6 cm tall, which is ~1/27 scale compared to Mixmaster's height in Red Goblin's scale chart (22 feet). SS Mixmaster in vehicle mode is ~20.5 cm long from front to back which with the oversize is ~33.62 cm long, which is ~1/33 scale. I think MPM Bumblebee is like 17 cm tall which scales pretty nicely with Mixmaster in robot mode. For Optimus Prime to scale with this Mixmaster according to the scale charts (28 ft vs 22 ft) he would have to be around 31 cm tall, which is like LS03 height. Honestly from this I think some of the Constructicons' robot modes are pretty undersized for how massive their vehicle modes are.
All I need to see now is Demolisher/Scavenger. Bring him on!
Fuck man I hadn't seem the real thing and thought this was it.
Anyway, he looks great. I might even replace my old Voyager if this guy's a good size.
That's how it looks on screen
He was my most waited figure of the set and I have to say, he looks really good in these Pics. Can anyone who have Mpm Optimus and Mt-01 try to replicate the pic of the altmodes together, just ti get an idea of the scale of the truck? He should actually be quite perfect mpm Op scale....
Nice, thanks for sharing the math, hopefully it lines up with the released size!
I don’t own either but here’s a screenshot from Emgo’s review and it looks like they might actually scale decently…
Thanks for Sharing! Yes they actually seem to scale perfectly, as soon as reviews come out I hope to get some side to side comparisons.
It would be a perfect mpm Mixmaster, in my opinion and I would surely get it. QC was quite excellent in the older releases so I hope this one will be good top!
Someone much more obsessive about scale than me placed the BA Prime OSKO at 1:29 in vehicle mode, and if the Mixmaster is also calculated at 1:29 it should be spot on.
Yeah, great news that we are get the rest of the OS Devy's parts, i need the OS Scrapper and Scavenger, but Mixmaster look amazing, only need the view of Head mode!
Sorry, I fumbled up my math in that post since it was late. Rechecking it puts OS Mixmaster’s vehicle mode at somewhere around 1/33 scale. To be 1/29 he’d have to be around 39 cm long. I also made a typo and put “1/37” scale instead of 1/27 scale for the robot mode.
Thanks for your correction! I usually don't care too much about the mathematic scale cause it's calculated only on the lenght of a vehicle, which is a 3d object. As Tfs have to come to compromises due to the transformation, their proportions don't match the ones of the real vehicle. Sometimes they have the right lenght but they are too wide or too high. That's why I prefer to see some comparisons Pics, to prove if the figures look good next to each other!! But I'm really excited now about this figure. Anyone read something about release date or saw any preorder??
Yooo Mixmaster is looking sick, I'm glad 'Mechanical Alliance' is finally getting around to finishing their Devastator.
Just curious, any issues in this set I should know about before picking all these guys up?
I have Scrapmetal and LongHaul, only issue I had was scrapmetal’s left knee being misassembled; just had to unscrew it, flip the joint and close it back up to fully fix.
Otherwise they both have great paint, decent plastic quality (slightly higher level than what BMB used for Ares Nitrogen) and Hightower/Scrapmetal are loaded with extra accessories.
Yeah I can attest to Long Haul, he's awesome. Heavy, good quality plastic. Better paint apps, and the foot fillers while not necessary were a nice touch.
I have all 4. Great quality, nice new paint apps, wonderful toys.
The Mixmaster has some nice paint apps and improvements to the vehicle mode (source):
For comparison, the truck used in ROTF:
Ill wait till i see combiner pics
Are there any pics of this guy in head mode?
Anyone know when the mixmaster is avalaible??
