From TFCN on Facebook, listing was from Taobao
and the fact he is a leader class is even better.
so scale wise he would be around leader blackout's head heigt (the rotor engine not included).
altough is he bigger than brawl in the movie who is a voyager?
That image is just a photoshopped version of this that removes the claws and slightly modifies the arms to look different, everthing else is exactly the same.
It’s not real.
Is he that much bigger than Optimus, or Megatron for that matter?
Don’t get me wrong I hope we are getting a Leader, just wondering if it fits in scale wise?
that's why it's a placeholder image.
isn't that how those things work?
Placeholder images are just straight up placeholders, meaning they are whatever works. Thundercracker’s was just an image of Nitro Zues, most of TR’s were just images of their cartoon mode sheets. A placeholder wouldn’t silhouette or photoshop the image to make it look different. If it’s real, then it it would just mostly likely be an image of a previous Bonecrusher figure, and not a changed one as I stated above.
Real or not, would this even scale right with the SS line? I thought Bonecrusher was around the height of Optimus.
He’s the same height but has more mass, a voyager the size of Starscream would be more accurate scale-wise.
That's what I thought. I can't see this being real with that in mind.
Well, Blackout is basically just a voyager+ size.....so yeah, maybe...
Wonderful news!!, my #1 SS want, but 20 yen?
Aww, no Jetfire? Bummer
a 07 megatron would be sweet.
they have proven that they can make a great cybertronian jet mode with TLK megatron so i would give 07 megatron a chance.
i heard that there are 2 unknown leaders listed.
so perhaps if this is real,it's bonecrusher and jetfire?
If it’s true, I’ll be truly floored.
Based on the scale the line is trying to achieve I can't see this being a leader, especially if Starscream and Brawl are Voyagers. Bonecrusher, if we get him, will almost certainly be a Voyager.
I dont think Brawl and starscream being voyagers has anything to do with it, its a genuine leader class sized toy that was passed over from the first movie line. Thats the point of studio Series, to do movie toys that were passed over during their original run in their proper sizes.
No, that's not the point of Studio Series at all. The point is to produce accurate and to scale versions of themselves relative to the SS line and in this case, the "to scale" version would be a Voyager.
At first I thought the same thing as you (and you're totally right in that it's the deluxe modified), but if I'm right Takara-Tomy themselves sometimes do exactly this. Silhouettes or grey prototypes of different models...
If this turns out to be true I'd be super glad, although also slightly bummed leader sizes are not what they used to be.Would love me giant Bonecrusher! Same goes for Blackout, although he has yet to ship to me. Moldwise though, Studio Series has been stellar.
Isn't he around the same size or roughly bigger than Prime? A leader sounds way to big for that. I was thinking he'd be a big voyager, especially with how big Optimus is in Studio series.
