How well (or not) does Darkmount/Straxus scale with 2016-2017 Generations figures?

He's one figure I've been tempted to pick up but I was wondering how well he scale with current Generations figures: I know he's a deluxe size, which admittedly is a bit small for the guy but understandable given his obscurity. However I'm not sure if he's smaller or bigger than a modern deluze. How well does he scale with a Combiner Wars and Titan Return deluxe?

He isn't so bad. He's from the early waves of Generations (2010) which were bigger than the stuff we got starting in 2012/13 with Fall of Cybertron so he's about the same size as what we've gotten in CW and TR. It's a little easier to scale him with Deluxe figures anyway since the Marvel comics he was in didn't play around with character sizes that much, just about everyone was around the same size.

Good. For the most part I have collected stuff at the modern Deluxe and Voyager size, barring a few TR Leader-class (who worked anyway as being huge, such as Overlord). It would have seemed a bit wrong had Straxus been around the size of the smaller Generations figure. That and, well, the only older Generations figures I own are WFC Optimus, WFC Megatron and the Stealth Bomber Megatron mold. The last is so tiny by comparison that its just not funny...

I think it scales fine unless you want him to fight Blaster. Then he's tiny.
