    Scale is a part of the WFC toy line.

    Not in the context I'm referring to. Since the first reveal in a con back in 2018 for Siege, Jon Warden has been noting that each figure in WFC is in scale with the others. The toyline has more or less demonstrated the validity of those claims, with practical exceptions such as needing to be smaller to turn into another bot's head or to not be a 7-feet-tall cityformer.

    ^ that kind of scale hasn't apparently been seen in any Generations line except Studio Series.

    Well, not every toyline, and not always accurate to the source material, but scale is and always will be an important factor (even if sometimes it gets debated ad nauseam).

    We're getting a Scorponok toy that (nearly) looks eye-to-eye with the Fort Max toy - after waiting over 30 years for one.
    That is all I want; scale be damned!

    No, don't strawman this to be about the scale between bot and alt modes. Warden specifically referred to bot mode scale when he was explaining this information.

    I wish he came with his G1 gun and accessories, but he’s still quite magnificent. I have two preordered so I can have in Robot mode and Zarak and Scorpion mode at the same time.

    So... Any rumors about wave 3 micromasters or battle masters? Or anything wave 4? Or anything at all that isn't BS scale argument?

    Yeah, I hope they'll give us some more of the combining micromasters. Would love to see a few of the guys from the Constructor Squad for instance.

    I'm pretty sure Doublecrosser is part of Wave3.

    Given the wages the folks who make these make I'm not going to cry a bit about someone's side hustle. Yay crapitalism.

    He's likely referring to Unit 3 - 4-pack. Generations Selects are usually available from multiple resellers, but likely not at local B&M stores.

    At the moment, if you're looking for pre-orders, the only place I know that has it is Tillallareone yoys.

    I would like to see an upgrade kit to extend the thights or add boots to make up the ~inch in height he's missing.
