Yes. But. Sideswipe and Hound are smaller Deluxes. So, even though I, personally, see Prime Wars as a soft reboot of CHUG, I think we may be seeing a new standard in terms of size classes.

But I may be getting ahead of myself by considering Studio Series in this too.



They’re just basing everyone off the old scale guide as close as they can.

Just looking at Trailbreakers knees make my knees hurt. Ankle tilts are wonderful. Knee tilts are painful.

It’s really a shame that they left so much of him unpainted, particularly after how the prototypes were presented at SDCC with his wheels, shoulders, upper arms, thighs, and crotch areas plus his weapon all painted:

My local Walmart got rid of their Transformers section completely about a week after getting in some of the Siege line.

Many of the Walmarts in my area actually reorganized their toy aisles, and they didn’t label the sections correctly. Make certain to do a full walk-through of the aisles to ensure the sections in your stores didn’t just get moved.

I really can't wait to find out you're in right now. Your photos, and the sighting in Missouri have me out checking stores in Central Indiana. No luck so far, but we usually don't get things till a couple of weeks after the sightings. I did find a pass on a soundwave figure I just can't get into that mold. It's a nice robot mode, but give me that Transformers Prime spy plane almost any day over whatever that flying brick is.

Ultra Magnus looks good with that rocket launcher hammer, I'm still dying for good hammer for Siege Ultra Magnus and that might just do it. I plan to give my Ironhide the Cannons from Prime search account and would it be compression guns from the CW helicopter bold talking like to serve as his liquid nitrogen gun. So even if I don't let him keep his rocket launcher Hammer, my Ironhide is still going to be very well-armed

I think you're forgetting how large the Titans Retun deluxes are, Case in point here's Siege Sideswipe stood next to some Combiner Wars jet deluxes:

I disagree. You're comparing deluxe from 2 different lines. You should compare Siege to Siege. And going by the pics, Ironhide is a large deluxe, he stands a head above Sideswipe.

Yes, but even by that measure wasn't TR Kup on the taller side of the deluxe class?

I thought the big deluxes were more along the lines of TR Wop Spin and Twin Twist. But if Kup is along the bigger ones, then sure I dont mind conceding.

Can confirm, Kup is among the tallest deluxes in TR, alongside Topspin/Twin Twist; most of the others are at least a good half-inch shorter.

Yeah, Kup is tall but skinny. The Jumpstarters are tall and beefy.

So if you consider Ironhide standard size as you said, do you consider Sideswipe undersized?

You know, like with Studio Series, we shouldn't equate each Size Class to a specified height, bulk, or maybe even weight. Rather, each Size Class now seems to have a lower and upper limit, all for the sake of wiggle room for scale purposes.

Of course, there's still space between the upper limit of one Class and the lower limit of the next, but it's smaller than we might be used to. I wonder, rather than calculating and budgeting per figure, if Hasbro now just goes by the total for each Class, and distributes parts of it according to a figure's needs... :-?
