    Maybe we can take this to a scale thread? :) 
    <insert generic comment about every single thread chaosing into a winded discussion about scale between moviebots, g1 and other moviebots, while burying the actual topic of the thread>

    The scales are mostly arbitrary anyway, but it's not very relevant considering how differently people choose to view it.

    Scale topics happen in such threads. Best to ignore it if it bothers you.

    Does it really matter how they want to display their figures?

    That's it really! I personally wouldn't call 3A scale OS, it's just a different scale unless I've misread the correspondence. I'm more mixing and matching based on the figures qualities ultimately and I'll just put the smaller scales in the background if I ever display them.

    On a more general point I also feel that the production time is so long for some of these 3p movie bots that the rest of their planned line might fall through before they even get to some of their figs or the next movie comes and usurps all. Judging from Transcraft's incredible looking Bee, their BB Prime and Blitzing will be top shelf but there's a chance they might not even get made. Then I might have skipped on Zetas effort, which looks stellar, waiting for a version that never materialised. But this might just be typical collectors anxiety on my part anyway, buy buy now, get them while they're hot etc.

    I think the head and the hands are a little bit small. Please Zeta, fix them and the wings!

    This looks like the older version ( before the wing update )
    Anyways I’m excited for this!

    Head is not too small but I agree about the hands. They’re definitely too small

    He has the 2 tiny missiles he got murdered with. That's awesome. Definitely waiting on this guy.

    I can’t wait to blow him up!

    It’s really nice to have little accessories like this. It makes posing the figures more fun

    I was in for this but that Thunder Warrior is looking better and better. At this point, is there anything Zeta has over the Mechanical Alliance one other than better build quality?

    Much better arms and legs that makes him look powerful unlike the lanky looking BMB, smaller torso, better back detailing, great jet mode proportion and canopy size, includes a flight stand and comes with small missiles ( for the death scene ). The only thing BMB is better is probably the bot mode wing shape ( although they sacrificed it on jet mode and Zeta’s new wings look close enough without sacrificing jet mode ) and the hands.

    A Good Noodle Voldemort may be strong, but the M60 is stronger.

    How long was it between the first batch of Zeta's Bee and the improved reissue?
    I think they might do a re-issue of this guy with improvements like they did with their Bee

    If they fix some paint and the QC is good, it could be a candidate for figure of the year I think. I hope he wouldn’t be too expensive for me to buy.
