    putting aside semantics - the current height is appropriate for display with MP figures - especially if one's exposure was via the US version of the G1 cartoon... even in headmasters, his height varies from scene to scene (or rather the height of those around him varies e.g. kup, hot rod, optimus, scourge, etc...)

    IDW also has him a bit larger than rodimus..

    all that matters... does the dude look good where and with whom he's displayed

    if you cant love the one you want, love the one you're with with

    Smartbomber's looking pretty stupid compared to Toyworld's Not-Brainstorm. Will buy.

    I'll consider getting Prime if we don't get one for Generations.

    Their throttlebots continue to look pretty nice, but I was never interested in those in the first place.

    Brainstorm doesn't look bad, but he looks about a thousand times worse than Fansproject's.

    Optimus looks WAY blockier and more boring than the actual Figueroa design, and I don't know if this was the closest they could get when converting it to an actual toy, but either way it's utterly boring. And the headsculpt is just totally wrong, but I guess it it's wrong in a way that's kind of suited to how much blockier the figure is.

    Well I'm glad that at least opinion ranges both ways. Despite the fact that I'm not interested in any of these, personally, I like ToyWorld, and want them to stick around, so I hope these sell decently.

    Count me in for all three. Just needs a better head for Optimus from somewhere.
    Also, when are we ever going to get combined mode pics of the Not Throttlebots?

    If FP's Brainstorm had a faceplate there would be no comparing the two. The only reason TW's has any appeal is because of the head sculpt.

    Yikes! October for Trace/Chase? I guess it will be a while before the Throttlebots are all produced.

    Way better than FP.

    I'd buy Minibots made by Toyworld.

    Interesting that Brainstorm and the Throttlebot go up for preorder but not Optimus. If that holds I suppose it's not surprising considering BBTS didn't get Hegemon either.

    I sure hope so! Even better, ToyWorld will almost certainly do them right and in the proper Voyager scale!

    Yes, this. It seems kinda weird. I can understand BBTS not wanting to get into it with a realistic toy gun, but I'm really surprised at the lack of Prime. Perhaps it wasn't solicited yet? Maybe it's not as far along in the process as the others?
