    Pretty sure it's Deadend and then Dragstrip.

    That's a nice looking logo. Where/how did you get it? Is it your own manipulation of an existing version?

    I think it was either Reprolables or from e-bay ages ago. I'd hate to add up how much I've spent just on stickers!

    Where did you get yours from? I’ve been trying to get one in the UK for a reasonable price, so far no dice, just 2x on eBay :( 
    Getting G2 Flipout from Omegalock, but no sign of no.1 - any ideas (anyone)?

    So I'm sure this has been asked multiple times and been answered satisfactorily (or not) but what's the actual height and scale for this guy in Combined mode? Measured to top of the head ? (not antennae)

    I had thought it was supposed to scale reasonably well with the Zeta/TW sized figures and I thought it was quoted at 49cm? (vs 50cm for Constructor)
    But looking at the proto pics and going off the relative height of MP-36 at crotch height vs mid-thigh for Zeta, Monolith seems a little short? It;s not as short as MMC's or UT's but he's not giving the same sense of bulk as the Zeta guy's. Hopefully I'm way off and this is just a perspective/"off in pictures" thing?

    A. Menasor's height looks about right to me.
    B. Menasor's height looks about right to me!
    Honestly… being made up of cars (and one Semi), I would expect him to not be quite as bulky (or as large) as a
    combiner built with Jets and/or Military vehicles (with most certainly more kibble).
    Just my :2c:

    Thanks for the info. So as far as you know that size estimate is accurate?
    Because for me, scales important and all combiners should be about the same. Devy is 6 construction vehicles. That guy from the Japanese cartoon is made out of trains. Defender has an ambulance and a motorcycle for legs.
    Arguments that relate combined mode scale to alt modes don’t really work for combiners, not for me at least.
    May still pick these up for Alt modes. But Bot modes disappoint me and now combined mode looks to be too small. I’m not bothered by Motormaster being almost the whole Combiner or the car shells, but if they’re going to that extent, I would hope they’d get size bigger.
    Oh well. There’s no rush to get these, and they may still surprise me.
    Cheers

    Me either. I always tell people to look at the Protectobot Groove. He’s the same size as his teammates in robot form, but shrinks as a motorcycle, and grows as a Combiner limb. So the robot forms are their natural sizes, regardless of vehicle size. I like my Combiners to be the same size, like they were in the cartoon:)

    I know you're just poking fun, but this is why (posted in the TFM thread).

    I would also add a set with a MadMax vibe. The Stunticons would flourish in the Apocalyptic environment.

    Man, I thought Dead End might have started showing up by now but I guess not. I'm really curious to see whether or not he comes with the car shell pieces included.
    It was originally 49cm and then they scaled it up to 50cm. Either way, it should be about the right height. You're also dealing with wildly different perspectives throughout all those images (heck, Assaultus and Ragnaros are about the same height but are way off there), so I wouldn't worry too much about it. You can definitely see that Megatron is closer to the camera and shot from a low-down angle in the photo with Menasor as opposed to the other one - look at his legs (especially the lower legs and feet) and you can quite easily tell that they look bigger.

    I'm hoping Monolith scales well with my Ragnaros

    He won't. He's taller by about 5cm. Menasor is one of the shorter combiners too, so yeah... I mean, if you don't care about that much of a difference, it'll be fine, but it's about the difference between UT Ragnaros and Zeta Armageddon.

    Damn that's quite a difference. Ragnaros is my only combiner so they ll look odd together?

    The super slow pace of this project is really making me lost interest.

    So what’s the story on these g2 X-Transbots stunticons? Are there anymore already released other than g2 crackup? If not when is the expected release times?

    Probably, yeah.

    If you want to, you could buy Zeta's Onslaught and get this kit to use the Unique Toys limbs. You'll get that extra height and they'll match a lot better.
    Zeta Toys Onslaught with Unique Toys Upgrade Kit plus G1 Chest
    It's a bit excessive if you ask me, but it seems to work just fine.
    G2 Flipout is coming next. He's up for pre-order but not out yet. The first one was an exclusive (TFcon and Toy Dojo, if I remember correctly), but it seems the exclusivity ended after that. The G2 repaints of the previous Stunticon seem to come out around about the time the next Stunticon comes out, so we're expecting G2 Flipout around the same time as Deathwish.
