    Yeah, that will work. I am just in it for the Defensor, but if I was after individual bots, I'd be riding the MMC train with you.

    Well I'd say SW is a lot taller than Prowl, but yeah definitely still a lot shorter than Ft stunticon.
    I do also hope the blade and first aid would be the same height as starscream.
    I could accept streetwise and groove being car bot height, cuz no way they can stretch groove into a starscream height to make the four limbots all have the same height. Cuz he is just a stocky short guy by the design.

    There definitely is a minor bit of arm fakery. First Aid's arm has a faux filler piece of van similar to Deadend's little filler piece on Menasor. Because you see the same section of van twice on that arm. Blades not so much - just a bit of red filler visible under the back end of the chopper.

    I wouldn't say SW is a lot taller, just slightly taller than a Takara car bot. About half a head taller.

    I don’t find many people that appreciate the pitch meetings as much as I do.
    Aw, transforming Fuzz is TIGHT.

    I've only just noticed how terrible Fuzz's proportions are compared to the carbots. Taller overall but the shoulders, crotch and knees are all lower. Super long arms and short lower legs make for a good ape

    Yeah the engineering of the shoulders - that tiny ball joint - seems to have been a bit of a fuss over nothing, they seem to hold up, although i still think they will get floppy relatively quickly. Its the position of them I think sucks most. If they were just 5mm higher, it'd mostly solve the gorilla arms and his head looking too high up.

    If you pose him it resolves that quite nicely. 63C24757-C530-4384-8AA8-5C4C9189854D.jpeg

    His proportions aren't the best in the world, but much like the individual Zeta combaticons and Toywold constructicons it's not exactly like they have any competition at the full big ass mamma jamma MP combiner scale.

    In other words, I'll start caring about the arms in about ten or fifteen years (that still feels optimistic, actually) when Fanstoys finally completes a set of protectobots.

    unfortunately for the FT holdouts they haven't even completed the two they are working on now. I do hope they complete them soon, they have a lot of other stuff in line that needs attention.

    Not going in on these until we know categorically if there will be a separate toy version. I dislike the “no plans” bollocks, especially as all companies making figures will have a route map of releases for the next 2 years…

    If you look at his arms you'll see both bots split and attach to a filler piece

    I've been wondering about this too. So far they look pretty close to the toys, but would appreciate a statement from XTB before going in on them.
