    It's comical how small Hot Rod is next to the Dinobots lol! Can't wait for the rest of the gang to come out. IMG_20211010_015941.jpg

    Swoop is around Cylclonus's height (face to face, eye to eye, etc.). Cyclonus's helmet and rabbit ears are far taller than Swoop's alt mode's balk half of the head. I doubt the folded wingspan will be much wider than Cyclonus's alt mode. It will come down to can Swoop fit in a voyager box and I can see a scenario where the wings pop off for room and longevity rather than let's make it aleader and throw in some accessories. Time will tell.

    *edit* I wasn't at my desktop earlier so I couldn't scale chart this response.

    I know people think SS Grimlock is a "MP lite" but Slag REALLY is. It lacks the conspicuous open spaces of Grimlock, has improved articulation, looks great from almost every angle (I can forgive the tail on the back... nobody slammed FansToys for doing it either), and in general is awesome. I wish they'd figured out a way to make his beast mode's back legs thicker, but it's not a deal-breaker. I'm super stoked for the rest of the Dinobots.

    I picked up a Gnaw over the weekend. I really like how solid these new transformers feel. I know the 20 dollar pricepoint on a deluxe seems high looking back on the days of RotF and $7.77 deluxes, But for the quality of these Studio series, I'll pay $20. So I got Wreck-Gar and Gnaw. I'm eyeing up Jazz and have my wife looking for Grimlock for me for the holidays. Is Rodimus worth looking at?

    You're definitely not the only one. If you could leave the chest halves collapsed in for robot mode, I'd love it a lot more, but stock it won't work because of the transformation.

    The dino back feet are hilariously small, too. I like that the dino hips disappear into his robot legs, and I like the robot mode leg proportions more than you do. (I didn't have the OG toy so that one looks like he's wearing moon boots to me.) I literally laughed out loud when I pulled the feet out though, like, "Okay, but where's the REST of them?!"

    I love your reviews, though! Very thorough and insightful, and great pics.

    My school of Sharkticons grows.
    I got one more coming from Amazon tonight.
    With my Allicons and TR Sharkticons, should be enough to satisfy the inner kid in me. …. Maybe. :D

    Definitely getting Gnaw, but probably just one... the older Sharkticons work fine as Sharkticons. Gnaw can be, like, their king or something.

    That's what I'm thinking. Having a SS, TR and Quintesson Pit Gnaw would look pretty good.

    Gnaw #2 and 3 arrived today and I’m spent.
    Interestingly no CQ issues as with the first one’s loose shark fin and floppy lower jaw. Some Kiki joint tightener helped with that though.
