    I know its just me but i always saw the cons as being bigger no matter what. I mean there are a certain couple guns and a tape deck that are much bigger than the carbots

    Yeah I like ft's approach best too, that's why I'm only into that set. But do u guys think there's a chance that xtb's blade or first aid would be much taller? I just can't imagine a van and helicopter turn into a car bot height character, gonna look...thick.

    Arms stick out of shoulder too much, forearms are too long, head locates too much forward and legs are also too shot, those are my problems. I think mmc or ft will almost surely pull out a better streetwise but since each set will always have a worst one, let's hope fuzz is the worst in this set.
    Ps: I'm only referring to the bot mode here.

    if you don't mix your decepticon and autobots on the same shelf it's not really a problem although i did struggle with it at first but they look that good i decided to sell xtb's limb bots and gave up on mix n match stunticons :lol  i think xtb's are slightly too small although it's not as big a difference as ft's.. fuzz height or maybe just slightly taller would have been perfect

    the biggest fuck up was takara making their carbots too short

    I think they'll be going for carbot height for all limbs. We can see from the defensor render that First Aid's van is underscaled - smaller than Ironhide even though its the same van - and the helicopter is obviously even more so. So that will help making them carbot sized in bot mode.

    Think they made him smaller because he had to match up with Groove for Defensor’s leg? I’d hope First Aid would be taller than this so he’s not so out of place with Ratchet.

    Swap to the toon accurate face, good job from XTB, the original design might as well be the ugliest among the ugliest team, but this face sculpt looks kinda cool. I think I'd settle with it. Now, what's the next one? Newer Kup?

    No offense, but i think Takara Prowl’s height is pretty much right, if compare to XTB Streetwise. FT Dragstrip is the one, which is too tall.

    Do we know how they are going to combine? At the moment I've got Zeta/DX9 combiners and I'd ideally like to keep the rough heights the same, and I kinda of see that as possible only with some form of shell

    Disagree. There are many, many shots in the show to prove that stunticon limbots are just one head shorter than motormaster, and if you think motormaster should be the same height as Prime, then FT/DX9 nailed the limbots' height perfectly. And by doing this, all the members from different combiners will kinda look balanced against each other as being discussed many times here.
    Carbots are lot shorter, no problem.
    I wish XTB streetwise could be taller, and I still hope their Blade and First Aid could be much taller than the other two.

    I don't think there is a single scene in the whole 2nd Series that shows the stunticons and the Autobots side-by-side in carbot mode. The best references are the size to other decepticons.

    btw: TT Hound is bigger than TT Prowl and therefore has almost the same size as Streetwise. In the cartoons Prowl and Hound are of a similar size.

    You can disagree if you want. No problem.

    And what comes to Prime’s height compare to Motormaster, i like to think that Motormaster is taller than Prime.

    Me too. I also want Blades and FA to actually transform into arms but judging from the render it already looks like their going to split in half the same as the stunticons.
