In the previous post, I mentioned my appreciation of Voyager Leader Prime (Hunt for the Decepticons voyager Battle Blades Optimus Prime) being in scale with deluxe Ironhide and almost in scale with deluxe Ratchet. I also mentioned that I like jet transformers being bigger than car transformers, and Decepticons being bigger than Autobots.
That brings us to today’s Action Pose.
That may not look like an action pose at first, but it conjurs up a lot of conjecture as to what comes next.
Yeah, in the movies Optimus is about the same height as Starscream, and just the other post I was complaining that Ratchet’s feet made him too tall for scale with deluxe Ironhide and voyager Optimus, but I really like the look of Starscream towering over a defiant Optimus. So here, ‘looks cool’ wins out over ‘looks accurate.’ :)
And for those interested, Voyager Leader Prime’s alt mode is pretty close in scale to Starscream’s.
Deluxe is my favorite size class, so having smaller (and better) versions of the bigger figures is great. HasTak has been using movie scout class figures for new characters, but it’d be nice if they bucked the trend long enough to give us a great Bumblebee and maybe a Jazz.
