Yea, I feel your discomfort about the face. If he is as tall as Jazz and Wheeljack and the gang in that panel, than we are dealing with what, a thirty foot tall human? Sabrblade, good time for you to chime in:


Will little ol' me do? ;;)

The Pretender Shells were nothing more than suits of armor, if the Marvel comics can attest. Disguise wasn't that much of a concern, except for in their debut, where human looked down upon giant robots, but were apparently perfectly fine with other, more frightening creatures of similar size. Skullgrin even landed a Hollywood movie role. Go figure.
One funny story in the comics is that the Autobot Pretenders landed on a planet with giant humanoid females, and wanted the Pretenders to ehm... :oops:

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD 2001 Dreadwind & Smokejumper
3) RiD 2001 Destructicons Bludgeon & Scourge
4) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

The resident Rewind... well, half of one :lol:

I'm kinda slow, so you'll forgive if your explanation doesn't resonate. The only exposure I have to Metalhawk, or Pretenders in general are toys, and Masterforce. In Masterforce, they where human sized while in their "power suits/shells". So you are saying in certain comics, they were indeed GIANT humans, and that is what we are witnessing in this Botcon comic?

Giant humans and monsters, no resizing at all. I'm still baffled the humans didn't budge or run away scared when they first encountered the Pretenders.
