    You’re pretty spot on. I measured next to a stand piece and BA is definitely no larger than 9.5cm.
    Show Z says 8.5cm so we’ll see. Either way it’s far too small for anyone to consider using these in an MP display.

    You mean with Takara’s releases that are already far too large for MP scale?

    I mean if you’re looking for a Rattrap to join your Beast Wars Mp crew then this one won’t fit.

    If you’re referring to how BW MPs are too big to fit with G1 then obviously I agree they should have scaled the Beast Wars figures to match G1. Especially for season 1 designs who had absolutely no interaction with any G1 bots. (Starscream’s ghost doesn’t count.) Everything must always adhere to G1 dammit! Especially when it makes no sense. Even though Beast Wars massively oversized the likes of Prime in S2 to amplify his near mythical status and the grandeur of the occasion- so really we should get a Prime 4.0 next from his Beast Wars appearance where he towers over MP10, 3.0 and all the BW MPs appropriately.

    Alternatively, this line from TE should fit in nicely with the G1 MPs if that’s what one was looking for.

    What I'm personally hoping for from these is that we don't get JUST the show characters. I would love to see some modern versions of other characters like Razorbeast and Snapper and Wolfang.

    Honestly the way things are I'll be happy if we get two other characters from them in the next year. I'd be overjoyed if we get the show characters. But, yes... I do hope we'll get the toy characters too. Very much.

    Anything BW in Legends scale is a plus for me.

    I hope they'll be on sale after the mid-autumn festival.
    I'm itching to get these two in hand.

    Is the med autumn festival already under way? Really hoping to add some legends BW figures by the end of the year.

    I honestly have no idea. I imagine it would be somewhere at the end of October?

    I believe they’ve managed to neatly tuck them away- completely out of sight- in a drawer back at their office.

    I still want to see her next to the NA Insecticons, esp in bug modes. I bet her spider will find the bug trio a tasty snack.

    Saw these on Facebook, not sure what’s going on with the colors

    A Legends Optimus Primal would actually scale pretty well with MP/M figures
