    Apples to oranges man. Fanshobby is more G1 & MMC is IDW.

    Depends on what your reference is. If it's the original toy, then he's on par with G2 Prime. If your Prime is a relatively common height in his basic bot mode across continuity, then, yes, this Thunderclash is fine as this Thunderclash's basic mode is roughly the same height as MP Prime.

    Which brings up the whole, what collection do you have? MP, classics, legends...

    The question should be two fold, how tall is this figure in the configuration I desire and which media/classic toy reference am I happy with relating back to?

    And, honestly, only you can decide the latter because it's your collection.

    Both fit technically in terms of their respective scales. In G1 comic contuinity he was an Autobot leader so the Fans Hobby cab robot works as its MP Prime sized. MMC is a big voyager for their IDW CHUG style.

    The hauler does have its "base mode" configuration.

    As posted above, MMC and FH cater to two completely different markets.

    MMC's Thunderclash is aimed at the fans of IDW comics and is meant to fit with a sort of CHUG + scale.

    FH is MP scaled and intended to work with that line, save for the inaccuracies in the design (inheritent to using a mould meant for another character).


    Nope, Thunderclash is G1. Not USA G1 (since the USA didn't get TF's anymore at that time), but part of the European (and Canadian?) G1 line and released a year prior to the start of G2.

    Futhermore, it was never released in a G2 box or part of the G2 line. Pure G1.
