Or maybe I'm just not seeing it right?
I could swear that Matrix looks bigger, and it also fits in Hotrod's hands!
You're seeing it right. That means they had to have modified the chest cavity.
Or this new and bigger matrix will not fit into the chest cavity. I just took a glance at my Takara version and they would have needed to do a massive redesign of the chest in order to make room for this bigger matrix. I am not sure it is possible to fit it into the chest even with a redesign. We will see, but I recommend not getting your hopes up.
