I don't have my Studio Series figures anymore but Bumblebee was definitely a shrimp. That height sounds about right. Really you can't compare these figures to other lines. They just need to be on a shelf by themselves. I don't know how tall SS Optimus was, he's about the same height as ER Optimus though and I want to say that figure is about 6.5" or so.I haven't decide yet, i like a few of the bots but like in the past I quickly grew out of that phase of wanting them. My only regrets were a few that are now way too spendy. Though I'm sure they'll see a releases again, it's Hasbro after all. lol
I'm really tempted to get that Earthrise Prime though!
Question for you on the Studio series, I've been considering the Deluxe Class Movie 1 of Bumblebee but it says he's 4.5", is that true? That would only put him 3/4" taller than a 3.75" Star Wars figure, surely he's not that tiny. lol
I get having them all in scale but then how tall does that make Optimus Prime? Because Sentinel Prime is listed at 6.5" Thanks!
Though the more O think about it I might just wait for the more iconic looking figures made with more metal. I don't collect them all.
Honestly, the range of motion I can get out of ER Optimus is the same as the SS Optimus from Bumblebee. You'd be surprised what these figures can do. They are a dramatic improvement over any previous TF line. Some ever have "butterfly joints" at the shoulders as a result of their transformation. Ankle rockers are pretty common. The hip joints are fantastic.It's definitely a tough choice for on which way to go sometimes, I like the OG versions in alt mode but their bot modes definitely can look dated/blocky. Whereas the new ones have a more fluid looking bot mode and love how they can actually be posed various ways, a lot more than G1.
So I try to find something in between if I can, but I do like having them close in scale to each other if at all possible. BB being the same height as Prime just feels off to me, though I'm just not too sure on buying a 4.5" Transformer that isn't a "mini-bot". It really get crazy when they're both in alt mode and the vehicles don't quite match up, BB being the size of a Hot Wheel and Prime being the size of a 1/24th scale etc.
Yeah, It is cool. I love the style
Picking up previous waves of Transformers is much harder than Black Series. Was quite a shock when I saw how much I would need to pick up from eBay and the prices not even year old figures were going forIt must be nostalgia kicking in but have found myself getting into TF's more seriously lately with all the G1 inspired bots, as well as a few from the movie like Hot Rod, Kup, Magnus and Springer. Kind of bummed that I missed out on a few of the earlier ones like Cliffjumper.

The Kingdom and Studio Series line are everywhere over here, but figures like Seige Megs, Hound, any Soundwave, Earthmode Prowl, Rachet, Starscream and Wheeljack are nowhere to be found, same with any of the Netflix packs tho I did get lucky and get the Netflix Optimus battlepack and Bumblebee.What transformers are you looking at? All I see is any wave going for about retail. Also, if its a buy it now, that doesn't mean that's what its going for. It must be an auction to show the true price.
