The name: Has more meaning than you thought it did.
The image: Blurred, look at all this discussion! it's no different from HasTak showing a silhouette of an upcoming and/or unfinished figure. The blurred image gives us just enough of an idea of what the figure is going to look like, if it was the full on prototype, we would be waiting ages for the actual figures, some would lose interest, others would rage about how long its taking for them to release the figures.
The scale: We can only speculate. I don't think it would be good business to create their figures in scale with FP Bruticus, allowing one company to establish a scale long before you undergo projects similar in nature is not a good idea, especially if they plan on making a Bruticus of their own. If Hercules, Uranus, and FP Bruticus were all the same size and TFC made a Bruticus (which they would call Mars, hopefully) of their own would you buy it? You would at least get a preorder on BBTS. but would you pay for it? All future dealings with TFC and BBTS would become rocky because BBTS wouldn't have been able to sell a lot of them at retail.OFF TOPIC
DON'T READ THIS:
Created in jest mostly. If Ryan has a problem with it I will gladly take it down and replace it with a quote from Counterpunch (Podcaster Extraordinaire). Why did I choose a pic of FP Bruticus? Because when that gallery was published the discussion on the forum was lengthy, to date, nearly 67.5 THOUSAND view on the article and 11 pages of comments. How many comments are there on Botshots and Prime figures? If you think it would fit better I could use the BTS Sonicron gallery in my sig, it fits your criteria because it is a self contained figure and it is gloriously exposed in gallery form. Or maybe I could use the video review of it (which I enjoined, Ryan i think you should do more of those, but I know how busy you already are with the galleries). And honestly guys, do you think a Soundwave fan as enthusiastic as Ryan is will really let BTS Sonicron be his last 3rd party Soundwave? Do you really think he is going to pass on:
Maybe if the rumors are true and a Superior MP Soundwave is announced we all will.
But hey, I'm just ...[insert legal mumbo jumbo, jargon here] here.
