I do know that there are really big blocks of Salt used for licking. Would that count? lol
I only use the 3P figure due to them being in proper scale with the rest of the official line. And if Takara WERE to release the Constructicons, they would be in scale, and probably a refined, larger version, if the CW version. Which would put it ROUGHLY around the same height as that toy world version, if imagine.
Sizewise definitely. I don't believe Omega was ever implied to be City Bot sized;he just mass shifted in similar fashion to Astrotrain to fit troops into his alt mode. So he could easily be made to scale with the rest of the line.
Wait I'm confused. Cerebros didn't exist whatsoever in Headmasters so why wouldn't it be Fortress?
He had a base mode but sizewise he was never shown being Citybot sized. As Prime says he generally rivalled Devastator and was about the same size. To put it one step further he was a guardian robot, and Superion, who is also the same size as Devastator (for indirect comparison he's the same size as Bruticus) was also the same size as a Guardian Robot on Cybertron.
Now I'm confused. Was his name Fortress in Headmasters? I don't remember... It's been a while since I've watched that series.
[checks TFWiki]... Ah, yes, I see that you're right. Makes sense. The Headmasters and their "heads" are the same characters, after all.
So when Takara says we could get an "MP Fortress Maximus"... Could they have meant only the robot that turns into his head? i.e. MP-10 sized guy?
Man, if they did that... that sucker had better have the little "control station" mode he had in Rebirth in addition to the head mode, and an alternate Cerebros head, and the head mode had better have a moving mouth, light-up eyes... they gotta make it worth our while.
Fortress Maximus would definately have been the full Fortress Maximus as that name's consistent between Rebirth and Headmasters as being for the full giant robot. I dunno that they really planned on how to do him though in terms of size and such.
Japan: fortress, head mode only, toy accurate face
US: cerebros, head mode, mini fort max mode, faceplate and visor
IF takara made a standalone head bot, you can bet he'd mirror the former over the latter.
I know we're all desperate for some news (again) but why would anyone here believe that fan made picture of Jazz is in any way, shape or form a Takara toy?
Just like the theory that Takara "intentionally" leaked that picture of the Megatron prototype. Why in the hell would they do that? I want it to be real too, but I still have common sense.
Oh crap, they're doing what I suggested, they're including in scale beast wars figures as bonuses, that's what the tiny diecast figures are for!!!!!
Well, Omega Supreme wasn't REALLY a citybot, more of a defensive fortress. Like a frontier base or something. I know with mass-shifting nothing is SET, but, to me, of COURSE he'd be smaller than Metroplex/Trypticon. By a huge margin. Omega Supreme is MUCH larger than the rest of the Ark Autobots but shouldn't be like, ridiculously off scale from then like Metroplex would be.
If we get MP city bots (AND WHY SHOULDN'T WE, WE'RE ALL GOOD PEOPLE), the scale would HAVE to be different. It'd be so different.
I think this is just a 3D rendering, credit to DaimChoc and Arturo Milomir.
Omega Supreme wasn't REALLY a defensive fortress though. He was a rocket launch pad surrounded by a tank. Hardly qualifies as a fortress.
From the earlier pic of the head/chest/abdomen, I thought this looked good and could even be a TT design.
After seeing the whole thing, it's not TT no way. If it is a filter-photo of an actual toy, it's a 3P thing. Arturo posted this so ... anyway, deffo not TT. Not for me either, after seeing that lower half.
I feel the same way, the legs are so off....
I think they probably had a good idea of who was going to win (or would have just rigged the results) and may have just been gauging interest in general. Considering it's crappy showing (didn't it come in last?), all the more reason huge figures will VERY likely never happen in the MP line. Between cost, risk, and seemingly little interest...sorry.
I don't think we'll ever see a MP Omega Supreme. It would be too big and the MP line is all about cartoon scale. In the cartoon, OS is a bit larger than Devastator, so realistically, we'd have a better chance of seeing a CW or TR-scaled Omega than an MP.
Are they really? Keep in mind that takara is shooting for this:
If the detailing on the front of the legs was grey or silver, it'd be spot on.
I would laugh so fucking hard if these Jazz pics turn out to be an old Hasui design. The back tracking would be delicious.
The plot thickens.....

why not post a picture without the filter or what ever it is.. this makes no sense
