    That there.

    Otherwise it will drive you fucking insane trying to reason why Genrations Trailcutter/Hoist and CW Ironhide/Off-road are puny little Deluxes while being 4x4s and Brainstorm gets a massive Voyager that now won't fit with his team mates.

    Roll with it.

    Hell, the one image I use to justify ignoring scale when it comes to the toyline is Windblade standing on Defensor's shoulder. Windblade is as big as any individual Protectorbot...but then is dwarfed by comparison once they unite.

    The fiction and the toys are only loosely tied to one another in terms of appearance/scale. IDW has the freedom of being drawn and thus not constrained by manufacturing/engineering concerns. Meanwhile, all deluxe limbs in the toyline have to be relatively standard in order to work in the Scramble City format.

    Or how First Aid is the world's smallest ambulance :lol 

    And a combiner made out of cars is the same height as a combiner made of jets.

    Trying to justify scale in Transformers will only drive you mad.

    A jet/space craft is way bigger than a puny earth 4x4 in most cases.

    Fly with it.

    Shop smart, shop S Mart...

    And buy MP for all your toon scale needs.

    CHUG has never been in scale, never will be. I don't know why people aren't used to that shit by now. Transformers and non scaled toys, repaints, mass shifting and often parts forming have gone hand in hand for 30+ years...yet, it's always a shock to some. MP is the first line, and it took 9 figures and 8 years (?) to make that line even scaled. But Classics will never be scaled properly.

    My Classics collection has everyone in perfect robot mode scale. No problem.

    Yeah, that's the thing with Classics. The line doesn't have a unified scale like MP, but between multiple takes on the same character by Has/Tak or some 3rd party companies, you have lots of options. Even most glaring missteps as a deluxe scale Thunderwing are possibly being taken care of by 3rd party companies.

    Scale is fairly easy IF you don't compulsively buy every last figure there is. So many figures get released you can say to yourself 'I want everything be be x scale' and still manage to get a sizable collection.


    ... but, ah, "don't compulsively buy everything"....

    Yeah, I've got most of the characters I want have have stuck a fairly consistent scale. It's a bit weird when other fans see it at first, I try and go by alt mode size, so my seekers are pretty large compared to Megatron and Optimus, but it works fairly well.

    The only thing that bothers me about this line is the masters' legs aren't individually articulated.

    Yeah, that does suck, but to be getting Deluxe scale Headmasters at all, I'm willing to overlook it.

    This is my exact credo for collecting. Scale be damned. Make it beautiful, and I'll buy it.
