    Why is Black Zarak so much smaller than MegaZarak? That just doesn't make any sense to me.

    I thought the same thing! Then I said to myself, “Well, there is ‘mega’ right there in his name. Maybe that’s it?”

    I was thinking much the same thing, and imagine that there are contradicting sources on that point.

    Which wouldn't be all that different from other parts of the canon.

    I suppose Masterforce writers wanted him (and Grand Maximus) to be more well matched with God Ginrai and Overlord.

    Yup.

    After Hm, Megazarak blew up his humongous transtector. He built a smaller one aka BlackZarak and got possessed by Devil Z aka the evil wandering purged part of Vector Sigma courtesy of the Quintesson's mucking around the Oracle/Vector Sigma when the discovered him in ancient not yet fully mechanized Seibertron(Cybertron JP name)

    I think fort max blew up the original skorponok transtector. Didn’t realize devil z was part of vector sigma. That’s what I get for watching masterforce while drinking.

    Megazarak programmed the transtector to be a dead weight vise to Fortmax and set it to detonate at the same time they plan to blow up the earth and collects it's plasma energy.

    Devil Z being part of VSigma is a recent retcon in Legends.

    You won't find it in Masterforce. It is in Legends.

    Yeah fictionally Black Zarak is a lot smaller than Mega Zarak. Same goes for Grand Max compared to Fort Max.

    Yet another reason NOT to worry so much about scale, IMHO. Just enjoy the show, and don't get too caught up in the details. It'll just make your head hurt.

    1st MP Combiner!!! F**k yeah!!!

    So far it looks like it'll be to scale as well. I have higher hopes for a true MP Devy now!

    Huh. Cool unknown info for me at least about Devil Z being a corrupt core of Vector Sigma. Learning some new Transformers lore every day. :D

    Why wouldn’t they be sold on Hasbro Pulse? I thought they sold all the TT MPs these days? Not the best price but they do sell them as far as I know.

    Yup. Applicable for the original G1 toys but in the Legends line, Brave Max is now at the same scale as Fortress. Black Zarak also had a growth spurt. Emphasis on "seems".
