Yeah, I've gotten super frustrated with video reviewers who spend 15 minutes waving the toy around with their huge grubby hands taking up half the frame and going "uhhhh" but never once put it next to any common toy for size reference.
Or if they do, it's some other equally obscure 3P toy, which doesn't help!
My recent 3P foray has a been few things:
- rounding out some mini-bots that haven't had satisfactory official mainline scale releases --- Huffer, Gears, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee for a complete '84 set; Pipes because MTMTE.
- TINY BOT ARMY. Roughly 3" versions of traditionally larger guys.
- TINY RAINBOW SEEKER ARMY: not sure I'll continue down this road, but I've got a purple guy and a turquoise guy, with a red guy and a green-purple guy on the way.
- not-so-tiny rainbow Seeker army -- just a 3-pack of slightly-smaller-than-Deluxe seekers in purple, green and orange-yellow. They are delightful! I'd buy more if they were out there.
