    Alt mode scale is something of a poor reason when 80% of the fandom is going to be posing and displaying characters in robot mode and these characters are consistently shown as being at most a little short

    Hasbro doesn't take into consideration the scale of the altmode, they will just take into consideration the size of the character as they appear in media.

    Alternate mode scale is only taken into consideration in the size of the toy if it's an altmode that fits other altmodes inside it. Examples: Soundwave and his tapes, Ultra Magnuses and cars. Everything else is strict robot mode scale.

    There are a few deco choices that I prefer from the original release but I guess the new one has more of that "pirate" look. I still wish they would have gone with a more unique paint job though.

    Hopefully once there's an Alpha Trizer release they use the original Legacy Thundertron since that headsculpt is much more fitting for him.

    Nightstrike's paint is different. Now the design on his tape mode doesn't look like a skull face, so the Jolly Roger mode is broken :(

    I like the blue better on the original thundertron but otherwise I prefer it so much more

    And I love Calcitron's face, very unique. First time owning the mold too so that's gonna be fun. Can't wait to pick it up hope it's not scalped to shit

    I really like this new version of Thundertron. I just wish they had saved him for this release and done an Alpha Trizer or something in the main line. Buying two versions of the same toy within the same sub-line doesn't feel very good.

    Still boggles the mind why this guy needed a new toy, let alone two. The original has just as much or more articulation as this one, so it hardly needed a remaster. Wish they would have spent this slot on something more interesting. Like say, RID2015 Underbyte...
