    Not Ratchet and not Ironhide are around a head taller than MP-12 and come to around the silver stripe on MP-10 and imo they fit pretty good, alt modes may be a little small but that's not something that bothers me. Benscollectables has a video review up on youtube and he compares MP-12 with PP05 it's worth a look if you want to see it.

    Not sure how or why anyone keeps saying these scale with each other. Based on the size of MP-10 & MP-12, the iGear figs (Faith Leader, van bros, Brawn) are clearly too small in comparison. If Ratchet/Ironhide were about an entire head taller and Brawn came up to Sideswipe's chest, then we'd be talking.

    I'm just going to wait for TakaraTomy's version of Ratchet and Ironhide.

    think that'll happen? Will TakaraTomy release the two? more importantly, will they be affordable?

    You need to look at the scale chart Takara are using. Going by that they are all perfect for each other. The van bros come upto Prime's silver stripe and 'swipe comes upto the vans shoulders. It couldn't match any better if they tried.

    Not sure why you are mentioning Faith Leader tho when MP10 is the yardstick.

    Affordable as Lambor and Alert most likely.

    They'll be bigger than MP-12 but not as big as the seekers so I reckon they'll be priced somewhere between the two IF they happen and considering the PP-05's don't cost that much more than MP-12 here in the UK and you do get a lot of extras and Tcracker said he doesn't think Takara could do any better plus they scale well for me it was worth the purchase.

    Frankly, it is anyone's own call to display the figures as they feel pleased. If it looks good together, then display them together. It's that simple.

    Pretty much this, agreed 100%.

    Boggles me why some fans feel the need to dictate to others what should and should not fit in their displays. :crazy:  Collect and display what ya like.

    Agreed. Definitely can't wait to see what Takara/Hasbro have in store for the MP line. I'm seriously considering moving my Classics collection now.

    Mp Sideswipe is a head taller than Jazz, roughly.I tweaked Jazz's heels to make up the difference to give you an idea.
