    Commander class is not really its own scale, I think a lot of people expect the new Optimus to still be voyager sized the same as Rodimus and Motormaster are the same height as ER Prime; Magnus is more an exception to give him a functioning to-scale trailer; the truck is near identical to ER Prime and it fits deluxes. With the trailer not forming a part of Optimus' body, I do not expect a larger more functional trailer to make him bigger. The ER trailer looks too small with the truck, going off trucks seen on real streets or similarly the Sunbow cartoon that has formed the basis of scale. Optimus can be feature complete and the size of the WFC figure.

    A bigger trailer does not mean a bigger truck and if the designers disagree I am passing. ER Prime is the right size. Just the trailer is wrong.

    Perhaps I misunderstand your point but I think there is less of a problem than it feels right now.
    YES

    For a long time those were my two favourite fictions. You will find me getting very excited over Xaaron and Flame in that thread while having this avatar

    Yep! I'd say I'm a G1-er, generally speaking, though the comic books - Marvel Comics, both of the IDW continuities, Skybound's Energon Universe - do have more influence on me, than the G1 cartoon does, as I've also just come to realise. Those are what drove me to primarily collect both the Wreckers, and the Lost Light crew, so this Generations Comic Edition 2-pack just merges those two halves of the Venn diagram.

    I do think there are certain elements, in Animated, that strongly reminds me of the comic books - the human supervillains, for example - but...in general, I think Animated's just a stellar interpretation of the franchise, on its own, so my enjoyment might not necessarily have anything to do, with what came before it.

    I should say, though, I also enjoy stuff like Beast Wars, or the Unicron Trilogy (as somebody whose formative years were in the early 2000's, it's almost a given); I just decided not to actively collect figures from those series, purely for my own financial well-being, haha. If there's a general, "theme," to my collection, it's probably, "G1-adjacent," and that's a criteria that a lot of Animated characters can still fulfil, while characters like Armada Megatron can't.

    I'm actually astonished that none of these new Legacy figures have sold out yet. I thought for sure that Deluxe Prime and Leader Soundwave would have been the first ones gone by now.

    Yeah, I don't know what's going on. Usually later waves are lower stock. Maybe G1ers are getting burned out? I mean, it has a been a LOT of product over past few years.

    Soundwave, Prime, and Slipstream are OOS on pulse

    Question what Universes have been used in Legacy now and what Universes haven't been used yet?

    So if Slipstream is a Seeker and is using Windblade mold, then is Windblade a seeker now?

    It begins, but I must applaud them for keeping those figures in stock for most of the first day.

    Ya know what? If one day they repaint a Slipstream into Windblade colors? I’ll buy it just for the sheer audacity of it.

    Every explicitly named universe off the top of my head:
    Diaclone Universe
    G1 Universe
    Comic Universe
    Victory Universe
    G2 Universe
    Beast Wars Universe
    Beast Wars II Universe
    Robots in Disguise 2001 Universe
    Armada Universe
    Energon Universe
    Cybertron Universe
    Animated Universe
    Prime Universe
    Rescue Bots Universe
    Robots in Disguise 2015 Universe
    Cyberverse Universe
    Infernac Universe
    Maybe GoBots Universe?

    Universes they've covered by don't name drop on packaging:
    Headmasters
    Super God Masterforce
    Beast Wars Neo
    Beast Machines
    Kiss Players

    As far as Universes that haven't been visited. I think the most significant one at this point is maybe the live action movies?

    Does Kiss Players kinda count for under featured but not credited as Autotrooper and the extra head?

    isnt chase from Rescue bots?
    And yeah if were splitting up Japanese continuitities I'd love some more alternity figs? or binaltech? anything to an actual scale with interior, die cast, and rubber would be sick, but its not really made for legacy.

    Yeah I forgot to add that, thanks for reminding me.
    Pretty sure they don't, I think they're just organized like that since well they're both comic continuities.

    Outside of Slipstream and Quake it's a whole lotta does nothing for me. Might get Soundwave, assuming he doesn't yellow, they should send one for free to people in place for people's yellowed ones.

    There will probably be a Studio Series 86 Soundwave, right? Or is this the one then, just under Legacy?
