    While he is handling the size discrepancies worse than I am, this set is indeed way off in a lot of ways when it comes to the sizes of all the characters, and it's something to discuss and not just try to shut folks up about it.

    Going by that logic, praise for the set is said and done as well.

    There’s more to this toy than just the size of its lion.

    There’s an entirely new video to appreciate that’s just been released. All of that offers new things to enjoy and share with fellow backers.

    So do You guys think that the normal size of star saber will scale evenly with Planet X ismenios? Seeing as this appears to be a little over old leader height?

    I think Star Saber will scale nicely with Hasbro Deathsaurus.

    Agreed.

    There's new stuff from the video to enjoy, and there's new things to not enjoy.

    There's more to discuss about it than just the good.

    Agreed. It’s just that there’s nothing new about the size of the cat.

    Very true.

    Personally, it somehow slipped past me that Saber wasn't even carbot height, so that was definitely a shock to me when I saw that yesterday. :lol

    The size is one thing, but it does not bug you more that the color on Planet X Ismenios is IDW accurate and not JG1 accurate?

    I prefer the idw look more over the g1, that’s why I was asking lol. idk the jg1 has never appealed to me idk

    The final idw comics that use deathsaurus also give a very alternate take on him and idk if u have seen images of that beast mode in the comic it is very differently styled and the ismenios is that

    Tbh I think they nailed the design either way, I cannot wait for it to arrive

    Oh that's every fandom. I remember reading a comment that every $4 pack of Magic the Gathering cards could come with a $100 bill folded in and the fans would complain about how the bill was folded.

    At least we rarely resort to threats, and name calling, and harassment. Looking at you Star Wars and Joe's.

    Yeah, I plan on getting the MMC IDW version of Deathsaurus to go with my IDW figures and calling it a day.

    As for a HasLab-Victory-Saber-companion-piece-JG1-Deathsaurus, I will just get whatever Hasbro puts out so at least the aethsteics won’t be so jarring for me.
