    They're not, they're CHUG scaled. Using Impactor as a reference, he's roughly the same size as Thrilling 30 Springer, and they're the same size in the comics. Springer is roughly the size of an MP carbot. If he was in MP scale, he'd be at least the size of a Seeker and closer to Optimus' size. Their Sixshot is roughly MP10 sized, but with a significantly smaller head than MP figures that size, and in the comics he's HUGE; the MP scaled version of IDW Sixshot is Gcreations Fuuma which is LARGE. He's also too small to be Cartoon sixshot; I have DX9 Hanzo and he's 1-2 heads taller and significantly bulkier. Their Overlord is significantly bigger than MP10 and could work as an MP (I had it displayed with my MP cons before their ranks were really filled out) but, again, in the comics he's fucking huge... a real MP scaled Overlord would be as big as MP Victory Leo (MP Star Saber + KFC Simba combo) or even bigger.

    HOWEVER, there ARE figures in the Reformatted line that ARE MP scaled: their Insecticons, which were originally part of their Ocular max line and was moved over because reasons. If that's what the original poster was thinking of, I can understand the confusion. But relative to the rest of the line they're WAY too big.

    In general, MMC's Ocular Max line is their MP scaled line.
