    The update is I got my tracking number from Sirtoys! Good thing I waited a bit.

    Some can be a bit rough in my experience - I got sent a BPF Slag/Slug from a Chinese Ebayer that had listed it as a BMB, the robot head is totally unpainted, and the gold apps of the toes & Dino head are pretty weak/wan on it.

    Afraid I haven't really gotten it out of the box for more than a visual inspection because it wasn't what I wanted. Handling generally in the packing bubble it seems a smidge lighter than the official.

    At least it matches the size of most of the previous extra-oversize Optimus figures. I'm not sure what kind of collection they really fit into, but the size does make for striking display pieces.

    50 cents

    Actual planet sized

    Delivered yesterday

    I'm just fucking around.

    I like oversized anything really. Particularly oversized primes and variants thereof.
    But I do want a Planetformer....

    I have had both the standard sized ones and the BMB oversized one and IMO the oversized ones out class them. In terms of plastic quality they feel just like an official Has/Tak release.

    My set of standard sized ones had hinges break and pegs snap off when trying to transform them. Not even a concern with the oversized ones.

    Dang. Then I might just try to hunt down some official bots then. I want these to become customs for the standard size since I already have a member for the planned team in deluxe-class....

    By IGear do you mean the Weapon Specialist Ironhide? I've never owned him but would he scale well with Earthrise figs? I always assumed he was too big for chug.

    Not really. He is the same size as WFC Optimus. Plus he is dated.

    I mix and match (as I imagine we all do to some extent) CHUG, WFC Trilogy, Prime Trilogy, MMC, Planet-X, and a G-Creation (Rebel aka IDW Prowl). This makes for pretty extreme scale, but I make it work for me :D .

    I think we were discussing this earlier in the thread.

    Weapon Specialist Ironhide is a bit large for CHUG - he's a big voyager, and his overall proportions feel like they belong to a different scale than your average Deluxe class car. But if your CHUG shelf leans to the larger side, he's passable.

    However, since Earthrise figures tend to be a head shorter than most CHUG figures, I think he'd definitely feel too big for Earthrise. I mean, unless you want an Ironhide bigger than Prime and Megatron.
