The Afghan war is almost forgotten by most people in the States and anybody who shares the sentiment expressed here is either 12 or a mental dolt. My question: why did you list Afghan as your nationality anyway and why was it the 1st thing to come to your mind? Were you just looking to start some trouble?


because i was on CoD4 as the arabs and thats about the long and short of it. Bllomin typical, i get a bunch of hyper sensitive idiots reporting me for absolutly nothing and apparantly its my fault. I ask you this, how would i know that would annoy them????? I know, and often tell people that there is good and bad in all nations, hell, my little country has far more than its fair share of idiots

The point people are making is that it's NOT a Titanium, and as a Classic/Universe, he should, in their eyes, be in scale with THAT line.


Then what makes him in scale? And for that matter half of you guys probably didn’t even go to Toy Fair to see it in person, so how do you know he’s not in scale? What if he’s a big deluxe, we’ve seen them before.

He’ll be in scale with Classics Rodimus

He's not in scale with Rodimus. When Rodimus became Prime, and the same size as Galvatron, he grew.


Okay, I kind of forgot he grew, but what if they make a deluxe sized Rodimus Prime? Then he would be in scale.

Actually, who even cares about scale? TFs have never had it since they started, why do we expect it now?[/quote]


Obviously some people care about scale...
And the whole "What if" is a far reach of justification to ignore or not care about it.

I think the argument that Galvatron should've been a voyager like the other 2 leaders is the most legit.
And by the look of those pictures, it appears Sunstreaker is bigger than Galvatron and Prowl (who look more similar in size).
So unless Sunstreaker is a huge deluxe, I'd say Galvatron is very average for this class.

Even though scale has been ignored more than what it probably should've been in the past, why do people think it's okay to neglect this feature with NEW figures?
Again, if they can be made more in scale, WHY NOT DO IT???!!??!?

1. Large deluxes, like Animated Lockdown visibly stretch beyond their alt modes.
You can see Galvy doesn't do that, so he'd be huge in both modes, and a Voyager.

2. There's a pic of him next to Sunstreaker on one site. :p

Nekoman wrote:Then what makes him in scale?

If it's based on Classics, Voyager as he was that in the comics.
Same for cartoon.
Toy would be leader, and any non G1 would be the same.

Nekoman wrote:but what if they make a deluxe sized Rodimus Prime?

Then people would bitch. They'd say there's a deluxe sized one in Titanium, and Classics Prime is Voyager, so Rodimus deserves the same.

Probably.

Nekoman wrote:Actually, who even cares about scale?

A lot of people for a lot of reasons.

Some care about robot scale (fiction based), others about vehicle scale (realism based).

Nekoman wrote:TFs have never had it since they started, why do we expect it now?


Robotwise they did. Not always but often.
G1 being 2 other lines created it.
Prime, the seekers, Soundwave were all huge, the cars were smaller and the minibots were tiny.

Since G1, there's been an effort to retain SOME sense of scale.
It's not always exact, and Armada Unicron etc ignore it completely, but the leaders are larger than the regular bots and so on.
It's usually only when we get a deluxe version of Prime later that we lose a basic scale.

I'm not saying every figure has to be slavish, I'm not against Powerglide, but leader characters, especially ones famous for being a bigger, more Powerful Megatron, should, imo, retain those qualities.

Oh, I know. I know Americans are not not all the same, I know it's just loudmouthed scum that act appalingly 'cos they're online, we have them too.

The HULK tank seems pretty dope. Would go well with my Decepticons. Especially Energon Demolisher and movie Brawl.


Seibertron still rocks.

It's a large Animated Bulkhead with a head that resembles that of the Marvel character Galactus which can fit over Bulkhead's head. Apparently, placing the Galactus head on Bulkhead makes the figure say different lines and make sounds, as if the Headmaster 'takes over' Bulkhead.
