    Hopefully we can get a shattered glass beast wars Megatron down the line from generations selects from the kingdom mold. Really like the look of this.

    i wouldn't get your hopes up for Predacon scaling- Scorponok is an entirely new mold, yet his robot mode is completely out of scale with the other Predacons. expecting Terrorsaur to be taller than Scorponok (when the former is a a retool of a small figure) is bound to lead to disappointment.

    I think this picture is misleading. Terrorsaur is at the back, and the camera angle is from below. This makes him look smaller than he actually is.

    Peaugh's review of Rhinox is up; didn't see it posted yet:


    I agree with his overall take. This looks like a downgrade from the Thrilling 30th one in most aspects.

    Overall sculpt looks less accurate (can't figure out why they made the bot details around his shoulders square instead of round... really looks wrong for Rhinox), leg transformation looks overly complex and panel-ly for an unimpressive result, and the chain guns are pretty underwhelming compared to the previous versions.

    Definitely not a bad Rhinox if you're looking for one, but pretty unnecessary if you already have the Thrilling 30th.

    Just got bad news. COVID 19 is causing major international postage issues for me. The mail industry is such a mess that my Kingdom Optimus Primal set won't arrive on the promised date in july. He will be delayed until August or even September. :mad:  The best my store can promise was, "You'll have to wait for a phone call, when we receive it."


    Also speaking of Primal why was he given a Voyager while BW Kingdom Megatron was given the leader class treatment. Did they want it easier for fans to buy Prime for a Voyager price or was it too small size for Megatrons complexity. Both were Ultra class in the past so why the difference now?

    They're based on show scale, not original toy scale. In the Beast Wars tv show, Primal was much smaller than Megatron.

    You uh... you do read my other posts, right? I'm the biggest, most annoying scale advocate and connoisseur on TFW my a large margin.

    ...I know it is.

    That's a funny way to say "you're an ally and a friend, I would love to buy you a beer".

    And to answer, sorry, I don't drink. But you're still awesome. <3

    The Beast Wars scales I care about most are Terrorgator and Snapper.

    Hopefully we'll get a Snapper sometime soon, as well as a retool/redeco in the form of Skold (since she was based on/almost a virtual retool of Snapper the way Nyx was of Bat Primal).

    Not even a debate really, I think this was basically just a statement of the fairly obvious fact that in the show, Primal and Megatron were rather blatantly disparate sizes as opposed to the same-height status they shared in the toyline.

    The die has been cast now. Megatron has to be a Leader class (or bigger) when he gets his TM and TM2 updates in the future. So says Scale.

    Look man, I was there during Beast Machines.
    Ultra Nightscream, Mega Rattrap, Basic Tank Drone, Basic Silverbolt.

    Your current trifles about scale, are the mewling and moaning of spoiled children.
