    It is far from ideal, but this is the only indirect comparison I know of (well there are indirect with Huffer too, but I feel that is less useful given the size difference). He looks to be about half a head taller than Tesla 2.0 in this picture (posed so not ideal for size comparison, but it is what we have). Below that is Tesla with Apache, Koot, and Rouge. I don't know how useful that is to you though.

    I didn’t realize they were masks for a long time. I thought the artist had given them all bird beaks. On topic :p

    So September has come and gone. Any rumblings on a release of this set? Seems like China has been having a rough time with power shortages randomly shutting down factories and shipping all in a mess. Not surprising the release may have been delayed just a bit.

    Eddie from toy dojo said October. That may not be definitive.

    How can this ship without ever seeing a size comparison or the alt mode? Seems very strange to me. Does it even transform? How do we know for sure without showing the alt mode?

    Doubtful, the word on the street is that it's release been postponed to November.

    I haven't heard anything specific about the cassettes, but since they were always slated to be released the following month after Acoustic Wave, it wouldn't surprise me if they were also delayed. The problems lies with the factories and shipping companies in China, there are a lot of COVID related lockdowns.

    That would make sense. So probably the cassettes might be released in December or in the same month as Soundwave. These delays suck but it does give me time to save up

    I mean, kinda, yeah, but how can they sell something without disclosing ALL of the details? Are the cassettes the same size as Takara's? None of them double thick like some of KFC's? Height? And I admit I did miss the alt mode pics on the 1st page. Oops. But these details are important, and make or break for me. I actually like MP13 and his dudes myself, so the only reason for me to upgrade is the colors. I think an MP13+ would be cartoon accurate, since, to me anyway, only the colors (mainly a lighter blue) would need to be changed for cartoon accuracy. Would be cool if he came with a mini-me as well, since he's the only one without one, right?

    Minis:
    Megatron - comes with various MPs like MP13
    Blaster- with Tracks
    Shockwave- with himself (even though he was never mini in the cartoon)
    Reflector- at least one (if not more) 3p MPs of him have the mini as well

    Oh yeah, Perceptor doesn't have a mini version either, right? Galvatron never shrinks, right?
