    Primal. Not the best shot, but I thought it was cool.

    That's the good shots out of episodes 2 and 3. Is this actually helping in any way?

    Just for completeness sake, I'm going to add in Kingdom Rhinox with the rest of the group who is a little taller than T30 Rhinox. Everything feels a little off scale-wise, Dinobot should be taller and Optimus and Rattrap should be a little shorter but I feel like they are only a hair off of where they should but if you squint a little it's close enough for me.

    Either way, Kingdom Rattrap is still way too small and T30 Rattrap still scales better with the new Kingdom figures.

    Good Lord, the lighting effects in this show do not hold up well.

    Rattrap Beast Mode Standing, all 4s, and robot mode. He is literally taller standing in beast mode than he is in robot mode.

    Well, this answers that question from before. This is why feet are important.

    AFAIK he's the same size as before.

    The Weak Component.

    I wish there was a way to get higher resolution screen caps.

    I am now able to scale the drone to Megatron

    upload_2021-11-11_12-47-7.png

    Given how much of the time the Maximals spend in beast mode, we really, really need some high quality stills of their beast modes.

    Here's Cheetor. This is the best one I can work with. if the rest of you could fan out and find other beast mode pics, that would help quite a bit.

    Nightscream is somehow back in beast mode between scenes.
    upload_2021-11-11_14-5-20.png
    upload_2021-11-11_14-12-4.png

    Controversial, I know. But I think The Weak Component might be the best episode so far. So long as you've never seen Beast Wars. ;)

    Haven't gotten to Botanica, Strika or Obsidian yet. But there's enough here for me to start really hammering this out.

    Man there aren't a lot of good models of these guys. This show gets the shaft in the fan art department.

    They really are on the same footing in this one. Just didn't bother with a composite.

    Here's what the current scale looks like.

    Looks good although I'm pretty sure Primal was taller than Cheetor or at least the same height as him.

    I know, it's wild, right? The scale on this show is way off than what I thought it to be. I guess no one paid attention in 20 years. And Tankor is MASSIVE. He is pretty close to the scale of TM2 Megatron.

    At certain times they are the same height. The scale between the two isn't consistent at all. IMG_20211125_104320.jpg IMG_20211125_104307.jpg

    And Blackarachnia is taller than both. They've got to be on level ground, you need to be able to see their feet, and they need to be standing directly next to one another, not in front or behind one another. For example, in this pic:
    [​IMG]
    I can only compare Rattrap to Nightscream, Blackarachnia to thrust, and maybe Cheetor to Jetstorm, if I were able to figure out where the "ground" was from him hovering. Beause those three sets are on the same plane, but not with eachother.
    This one is absolutely perfect:
    [​IMG]
    This one is okay:
    [​IMG]

    And if I've got two shots that clearly show a drastic change, i will usually split the difference. Maybe I'm wrong, but that's the way I've been handling it.

    Yeah see Rattrap is taller in the second screenshot than he is in the last one. Idk how you can make an accurate scale with this show when the sizes constantly change.

    Of course he's larger, Rattrap is closer to the camera. Okay, I am really not being insulting, but do you not know how perspective works?

    I meant compared to Cheetor in each one. Not larger in general.
