Did you happen to ask about those alternate head moulds we keep seeing via instruction sheets?
No, but Monzo did. The Hasbro guys knew what was happening with those and asked if we liked it. I have no doubt that we'll see a Wreck-gar head remold in the Western markets.

What prompted your observation here, Counterpunch? Just curious because I'm an active Star Wars collector too.
They had a VIP event where the various development teams talked about their figures. Out of ANY of the groups, it was the Star Wars guys cracking wise about characters, plot minutia, and how cool their stuff was. I'm a Star Wars fan too and I think maybe they were more knowledgeable than I am about it (which is rare for a rep).

May I ask about a size comparison regarding the Dotm and previous line deluxe sizing?
Are the Dotm cars or jets obviously smaller than their Tf1/Rotf and Classics/Generations/HftD cousins when together on the shelf? (In my head, I would treat a car 1cm or more shorter in length than a classics car an obvious difference, since the classics are already smaller than the movie toys).
(My guess is that any cross-line height differeneces in Bot mode wouldn't vary beyond half an inch, as the toys are designed with a final bot height in mind at expense of vehicle scale, if I understand correctly).
Thanks in advance.
They toys are starkly different at the Voyager class. They are absolutely out of scale with your previous stuff. Megatron is very very small. Ironhide is a touch undersized where his previous toy was a touch oversized. The deluxe figures are not as drastic. Leaders were still in scale. It's a mixed bag, but overall, this line is meant to be displayed independently I think.
