    I never liked the concept. I always preferred those G1 scenes where everyone was the same height. I like my troops deluxe scale so they can fight face to face not face to crotch. In my opinion mass shifting was better than scale based on alt mode.

    Naah. Transformers were always explicitly different sizes and were supposed to be. If you make them all the same size, then they're basically Go-Bots. :lol

    I dig that the cons won. Makes it more balanced.

    But it still makes me sad.

    MP Ratchet and MP Thundercracker are more or less the same height, eye to eye. So this is definitely doable in Masterpiece scale.

    Silly? You mean, "consistent with their depiction in virtually every single version of the fiction/media"? :peoples: 

    Ratchet and Ironhide should also be Voyagers, so citing that one animation cell doesn't really support your core argument.

    Basically, the old size classes circa 2006 were pretty much just right, though Hasbro never quite filled them out very well...
    • Scout = minibots
    • Deluxe = Autobot cars
    • Voyager = Seekers, larger Autobots like Trailbreaker, Blaster, Ironhide, etc
    • Ultras = leader types like Optimus, Shockwave, etc
    • Leader = Dinobots, Jetfire, other much bigger guys
    It would have been nice to get the G1-type homages we're seeing now, back with the size classes and durable construction of like, the Cybertron line.

    You havent watch a lot of G1 cartoons have you ? 75% of the time all the "troop" characters were all the same height. Only mini-bots and Optimus/Megs were taller or shorter. It made more sense. Especially considering how much mass shifting played a role in the cartoons. It looked better as it was more equal and a fair fight. Couldnt give a rats ass about the alt mode scale. Voyager seekers was a total fail. Would have loved tetra deluxes like the IT versions. Still praying selects brings back old molds and we get a classics seeker Redwing since it should compliment the Botcon seeker set, not clash with it.

    So... seeing the bad guys win in this is... promising. It means we might have more of that in the wfc cartoon.

    Nope.

    Just because you have a preference based on a distorted memory doesn't mean it's a hard fact. Not only were the bigger characters consistently larger most of the time, but the actual style sheet for the cartoon confirms this. In other words, ANY time you see those characters the same size, it is officially 100% an animation error.

    Also, I think you're probably outnumbered. I suspect the vast majority of fans understands (and prefers) that the Seekers are bigger than car-bots.

    Of course, you can prefer whatever you want. We all have our preferences. But there's no point in pretending that it's reality.

    Meanwhile, you have nothing to complain about. You can content yourself with all the TINY versions of the Seekers that have come out over the years. For myself, and probably a very large portion of the fandom, we're very happy to FINALLY be getting Voyager-sized G1-style seekers characters.

    I mean, is this maybe the second time ever? About damn time! :lol
