    Combiner scale is absolutely screwed because the individual components are one thing and then their combined form is another.

    Also, Titan/Commander exists outside of "WfC scale." Think of it this way: Commander Jetfire is way too big compared to any of the Titan citybots, while Commander Sky Lynx is way too small compared to anybody Leader class and below. Likewise, Titan Predaking and Devy are closer to scale with Leader and below but how they scale to the City bots remains a crap shoot. And both are WAAAAAY too big compared to Sky Lynx. (or not, again, depends on the episode).

    It's why Micromasters and Legends class figures exist. To give us something relatively close (or at least closer) to how a typical Cybertronian would scale to Commander/Titan. It's also why I hate that things have to scale now because it's all a pointless exercise and once you go down that road it's hard to pivot back (see complaints about Rattrap being Core and Blackarachnia being too big)

    I really wish someone would do the combiner teams at the legends scale. They would look really cool attacking titans in city mode. And since most team members have simple transformations and parts they would still work out well at the smaller size.

    There are no 5mm ports on the Studio Series ‘86 toys. That’s not a gimmick that is crossing over. These are going for on screen accuracy.

    I actually appreciate that a lot. While the ports are okay for the gimmick, they sometimes look odd like with Optimus' shoulders or just look like unnatural holes all over.

    ^This. My disdain for CW Devastator is not insignificant. He looks good as Devastator, but, I would love a smaller redesigned version made of sterner stuff...with better articulation on the individual bots and NO VISIBLE WHEEL CLIPS.

    Seeing a few posts saying Hot Rod was originally red in "earlier versions" of the movie instead of magenta but I don't think that was the case. We've seen animation models with colour codes from the time stating he was and should be magenta. Any red appearance on older releases is down to the quality and mastering of VHS/early DVD releases. Him being magenta isn't a modern decision they decided on, it's just that recent releases have had better masters that have better matched the intended colours.

    For further proof, I have the ladybird book of the movie, published in 1986 and in all the screenshots from the movie Hot Rod is most definitely magenta:
    20200918_172634.jpg 20200918_172656.jpg 20200918_172745.jpg 20200918_172625.jpg

    So yeah, technically this SS86 release should be magenta but it's not the end of the world. This is Hasbro, we all know there will be repaints and rereleases. And for Hot Rod I'll likely buy them all :cool:

    Newage has teased they will be doing bruticus and superion, and showed off a breakdown for menasor. Theyre going to be scramble city. Not on topic, but you asked so.

    And to be on topic, does anyone think effect peices will be a thing? I heard somewhere that cyclonus may have one, so may as well ask that ss may have some?

    Ah. Missed that. Too many posts. So im going to guess grimlock will come with a flame effect. Or maybe a sword effect? A blast effect? Or does wheelie already count as one?

    It would be. Hot rod gets a chainsaw, glasses, a gun,, other effect parts, while grimlock gets a whining child or a snack. Probably snack

    [EDIT: Okay - it's a new, significantly less caffeinated day. Let's try this one again!]

    I like Kingdom/SS86 Cyclonus' alt-mode design - but, if I could make any changes, my preference would be a slimmer fuselage, and to move the cockpit position a little further back.

    [Apologies for my amateurish digibashing skills! As has been pointed out, the prototype's colour matches the Sunbow animation model relatively well; I just have a soft spot for the darker decos of the "Battle in Space" set/G1 toy.]

    I expect Grimlock is a much larger figure and besides which none of the leakers have seen it yet so we don't know what he comes with besides wheelie.
