Yes!! Looks great now. Always learning.

I never knew the Pretender Beasts were so large - the only pics I'd seen had no scale reference - until I saw Slag's impressive collection.

Huh? Oh, you mean the shells. The bots themselves are pretty puny.

Got Landmine/Alpha Trion over the weekend. I'd not paid attention before to notice that it's a retool of Metalhawk/Vector Prime - with only some of the body of the shell and the "face/engine" part being different.

I didn't notice that it had reused parts from a previous PrimeMaster shell (when I got Landmine on the weekend too), but I did look at it and had the thought that all but the front panel could have been recycled to give us most of the Autobot Pretenders, by just swapping out the front panel... which I guess they actually did, if Metalhawk is just that.

Metalhawk and Landmine have the same pretender shell arms, weapon, inner robot, back part of the shell (all the bits I can see without opening) and the knees down.

Cloudbust/Micronus is completely different mold and it would be weird for it to not get a remold too (I'd hope for Waverider) except the Decepticon molds don't seem to share any parts from the stock photos.

I really hope they can uses the minimal retooling needed to give us a full set of humanoid Pretenders as a SDCC set or something.
