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

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