I am okay with this height. This allows for Rhinox and Dinobot to both be taller than him.

It would make sense for the Maximals and Predacons to be smaller than the Autobots and Decepticons, if we remember from the show they were significantly shorter than them

Yeah, but this isn't adhering to that particular scale since the average Maximals and Predacons were closer to human-sized. They'd need Legends and Legion toys to better match that.

Tall Deluxe size, but without the large gaps and hollow spots. This is the third WFC line, we should be used to classes no longer being based on height.

Not to mention he also has two swords, posable fingers, and his two over the shoulder guns, so he's quite better both accessory and posability wise compared to deluxes

Standard sized deluxe with accessories, that you have to make another purchase to get all of his accessories. Nothing new about that :(

Not sure I'll be able to rationalise £40 for a netflix deco of him but Hasbro can pull out all the stops when it is least expected.

He is kind of small... but I guess it makes up for that with the transformation, and features. Accessory count is kind of light at 2 swords, and yes you need a fossilizer to give him his mace.

Heck even the 10th anniversary/Cybertron Primal had a big hunk of plastic hover board thrown in.

This Primal looks to be about the same height but chunkier / heavier than that one though. Still $30 is bordering on excessive. While depending on the actual transformation and features may or may ot be palatable for some.

For me, still keeping him pre-ordered unless there's something in a future review I really dislike about him.

Last time I passed on an Optimus Primal for not feeling him too much at the time it took me 2 decades and a repaint / release to get him at a decent price.

Yup.

The Siege Ironhide mold may be tall, but you could make an icecube tray out of him for all the gaps and hollows.

I'm fine with the size. We have to take some things into account with this comparison.

1) Ironhide is a tall deluxe who accomplishes his size by being very hollow. He probably weighs about as much as prowl if we're being honest.

2) Primal is gonna be a hefty boy. Before we even get into parts count he appears solid enough to weigh in at about the same plastic volume as his counterparts if we put them on a scale, and he's made up of quite a few parts at that, before we even take the paint budget into account. This is gonna be a thicc munkey.

3) he'll probably look pretty good riding PotP Optimus Primal as a hover board

That's right, size doesn't matter. A short and girthy Voyager is every bit as good as a tall skinny one. ;)

Primal has a rather simple transformation comparing to other figures we have gotten in the WFC trilogy, his arms don't even change between modes.

He's a Deluxe-sized Voyager like Optimus Primal (though, Primal is more of an in-between since he's the same size as Ironhide, who is already tall for a Deluxe).
