    The only KNOWN about FT's combiner height are they said "in scale with FT-20" (their Omega Supreme), so shorter than it, and they also advertised their Superion as the biggest combiner ever, that was after TW Devastator so taller than that. Everything beyond that, including specifics, is speculation.

    ok, just trying to get the list right in my head, aerialbots and stunticons came out at the same time, then protectobots and combaticons, then technobots and terrorcons. the dinobots were the primary counter to the constructicons until they brought out Omega Supreme. and there wasn't really a counter to the predicons.

    Sounds spot on to me. Best attempt for a Predaking opponent is probably Sky Lynx...

    In Season 3, but in The Headmasters he was usually Raiden's adversary.

    Yes skylynx and predaking were marketed to go against each other.

    Honestly I don't particularly mind if Menasor comes out a little short, mostly because I'm collecting the g2 decos. And when it comes to g2 combiners, at least right now the only competition he has is toyworld's constructor.

    yep, pretty much, a magic flying train is laughable and it's creators should be ashamed of themselves.

    I've said similar and it induces severe nerd rage.

    But then I've always thought a train was literally the shittest alt mode for a robot in disguise. Wanna get away from it in a chase? Just bolt 90 degrees and boom. Gone.

    Raiden does look pretty cool in combined mode though.

    When I measured my Zeta Superion his height was about 51.5 cm. The head alone is 4cm, so if this Menasor is 49cm he should come up to Superion's eyes as in the picture. Of course given that several elements of the figure has already changed the stated height might not be accurate anymore, or it might have been an approximation to begin with. Only time will tell us...
    Having said that, even if it turns out to be half a head shorter than his nemesis, it definitely fits into the good enough category for me.

    Well, Raiden actually ranks kinda 4th of my favourite combiner, behind just Menasor and superion, and of course Devastator.
    Can't decide which one I like more, he or Bruticus.
    The most powerful combiner, no doubt tho.

    And gigantic flying beasts make so much more sense and people should take it more seriously?
    To people don't know transformers they are equally ridiculous, and to fans they all part of transformer family.
    Sir, you should be ashamed of yourself trying to discriminate one against the other.

    Going off the rails was never an issue for Astrotrain.

    Awesome disguise. They'd never guess anything with a train not running on tracks.

    we mustn't think about the things that shouldn't be, less we poke too many hole's into the entire fandom. why is an F1 car casually rolling down the turnpike? why is that tank or that A-10 red? why could the Autobots fly in the first several episodes then all the sudden they can't? why can Megatron float and fire on his own in alt mode sometimes, but other times has to have someone handle him? where the hell does OP's trailer go when he transforms? why could they get shot in the first 2 seasons and be fine but then in the movie they get shot once and die?

    I have seen posts like this before about Broadside, Sandstorm, Perceptor, Blurr, Runabout/Runamuck, Overlord, and others. I just don't buy most of it and it appears they never want to say no to you but we'll see/try. I believe that XTB/KFC wanted to do all of the combiners but I think FT is going to announce Bruticus/Defensor by the end of this year and then do you really want to be 5th to the party. Since Takara is doing Raiden I think a more successful avenue would be looking at the Piranacon, Liokaiser, Dinoking, Landcross, Road Caesar and Targetmaster Decepticons. Mostly, I really don't want ANY new releases. I want XTB/KFC to spend the next two years getting us Kup, Springer, Galvatron, Elita One, Buster, Hydra, Inferno, Grapple, God Ginrai and I know the Trailer and Quintessons are coming next after the Junkions. I suspect that's all we get this year if that even happens.
