    Cheers. My best guesstimates tell me Dinobot would have to be around 15cm to scale with this line. And there you go making me all jelly with that Tigatron again! I wonder what we’ll get first now- the MP or a new deluxe from TE.

    Sadly the tigatron has yellowed a bit if you look closely in person so I’m hoping for a new one soon

    BA needs work. Please try again with better bot mode and no partsforming.

    I agree. Thinking on it more, they really should have worked the abdomen panels into the legs. Her legs do no transforming whatsoever. They could have used something clever to work the panels into the legs...you know, like transformers should.

    It actually leads me to believe that these are quite small. If we're ever going yo have decent fembots they're going to have to be bigger just so the designers have room to work.

    I say save the ingenious mass shifting transformation that wil require multiple folding and interweaving compressible parts for the MP. I don’t mind if these have to cheat their asses off because I’m not buying them as the be-all-end-all definitive display piece for each character. I’m viewing these as cute side pieces to fill in some gaps in my OG collection.

    Of course, if the MP also partsforms, I probably still won’t care. It’s preferable to chunky, kibble-laden legs or a beefy backpack on a character who is meant to be athletic and slender.

    18cm tall in bot mode. Mine is the smaller Steel Planet version and judging from Tigatron02's pic the plastic "Dinosaurer?" version is the exact same size.

    I could care less about a legends figure that partsforms. This is the most cartoon accurate BA toy I’ve ever seen.

    Keep waiting for pre-orders to pop up. Curious how much these will be; legend prices are kinda all over.

    Lovely jublee. I reckon that’s too big for this line; any chance you could workout BA’s height from this pic?

    Of course this may be the larger version of Dinobot so we’ll still be none the wiser.

    I had a go the other day, I'd say she's 10cm tall. That is more than likely the same sized Dinobot as the larger one was supposed to be BW Grimlock, note the face plate on the larger mold. Though these where all unpainted so some heretic could have given their Grimlock stripes haha. The 3D printed one next to MP Primal is also the larger Grimlock scaled one.

    Oh and just because it was on the same page as this in the scale thread here's BA's bot mode next to our Raptor pal in the show.

    Oh they're legends scale? Nevermind then. I wish we could start putting that consistently in the thread titles.

    Shouldn't legends scale be just about perfect for Blackarachnia? In the show she was pretty tiny. Which is why it was always so annoying that her toys are all so gigantic.

    I've been wondering about this lately.
    Hope we'll get some update soon.

    Yeah, Rattrap especially looks good. Black Arachnia is looking a bit bland to me lately. Hope her paint details are good

    Amazing! Wonderful. Looks great in both modes. I hope Transform Elements will do the entire cast in legends scale.

    The diecast is a tad unwelcome on something so small but I guess I can live with it. At least it's at a minimum but I hope it doesn't give the figure stability issues.
