    Thanks for that!

    I have no idea where to "fit these in," as I don't really care to do a lot of stand-alone displays. But at the same time, I want them. If prices are fair enough, I'll be in on this.

    If they're going by AmazingSpino's height chart, Dinobot looks to be about a head or so taller than Waspinator.

    Like @Chainlink said, head or two taller. Here’s amazingspino’s scale chart for most of his characters so far

    BF69184F-C0FE-42F0-98A7-88988CF77C1B.jpeg

    Asking the real questions

    I planned on getting most of the characters if they are made, regardless of scale. However, I planned on shoehorning some of the larger characters in with my Studio Series collection; only the ones that make sense though. Waspinator could kind of work since he’s a helo, but his Sikorsky is nowhere near as large as the CH-53/MH-53 platform Blackout uses, so it’s pushing that logic. Dinobot will be taller than Waspinator, and because the latter is roughly MP car size, Dinobot won’t fit with SS. Which also means characters that are taller than him wouldn’t work too well either. But characters that are large military aircraft like Cyclonus, Vortex, the Aerialbots, Jetfire, and the Seekers could potentially fit. Same with Elita-1 or Grimlock or the Constructicons.

    Either way, I’m making room for these characters if Trojan Horse makes them. The designs are too aesthetically pleasing to pass up! The quality just has to be there to match. And hopefully with amazingspino collaborating with them since it’s his own artwork and canon, everyone will take pride in their work and the quality will be there

    We're assuming its mpm Bumblebee but it could easily be one of the upscaled KO's

    theamazingspino has a picture of him or someone holding the color prototype.

    As much as I would love for it to be next to Weijiang's OSKO MPM-3, its going to be about 6-7 inches tall going by the particular KO it was put next to (looks like Legendary Toys 1:1 KO).

    Most of the black on the original is silver in that photo, so that’s almost certainly the Legendary Toys 1:1 KO

    We’ve also seen it next to the 4EVER prime so, judging by that, it’s definitely not an OS Bee.

    so he’s on the smaller end of MP size. How likely is that to be under $100? I haven’t followed MP at all since they went full toon, but it sounds like they became quite a bit more expensive the last couple years.

    I anticipate him to be exactly that or under. It’s not a terribly intricate build, but more on the MP side.

    That's a bit of an understatement but yeah, MPM Bumblebee was 15.24 cm at $85, and I would think this guy would be a bit taller than their Waspinator I'd say he's probably around $90-#120. Unless the price is similar to that of the main MP line, where Hound was around 1cm taller and cost $160.

    Good lord, I’m glad the price hike came after the change to Toon. I picked up MT Hound, which I love, for around $90. Anything over $100, I likely would have passed. $160?! Absurd. I hope this is no more than $100, and Dinobot $110, $120 absolute tops.

    That’s not a bad alternative either. Or even a new take on Longrack.

    Or restructure his universe and name him Dynabot (dynamite/demolitions expert).

    I would love a figure of this Galvatron design that he just posted.

    I'm just going to call it Galv-Ultron :D 

    That's a cool design overall, but man do I hate the trend toward big pointy elf-shoe toes like the Bayverse dinobot look.

    bruh I saw this on his insta today, I love this design. and the way he is, reminds me of 'predacons rising' movie with unicron possesing megatron. also the nose of the jet reminds me of another jet mode from somewhere, but can't remember which one lmao

    The jet looks like a Halo Banshee mixed with Samuel Hayden from Doom to me
