It doesn't effect anything, but it occurred to me this evening that it would be cool if the toy size classes (scout, deluxe, voyager, ultra, leader, supreme) were used as the weight-class qualifications in Cybertron's gladiatorial games. So Minicons/micromasters would be featherweights, scouts would be lightweights, deluxes welterweights, etc, etc...

It wouldn't actually effect anything but struck me as vaguely amusing. :)

Some kind of fanboyish shout-out, hmm? ;)

I like it. So Legends class would be for the Minicons and Micromasters, then? Because they would be Legends to survive the gladiatoral games. Okay, bad joke there.

Only question to that would be:

What about characters who have multipul size classes?

Bumblebee, Prime, Lugnut, Megs, etc.

Otherwise, I think it's a great idea for interaction.
Especially when you look at a show like Prime, where the size differences are quite pronounced.

Bumblebee would be Scout class, I guess.

Lugnut is technically a Voyager in both his major toys, but he looks more like an Ultra or a Leader IMO.

Megatron? Leader, definitely.

Optimus? Leader or Ultra, if he joins the gladiatorial games.

Probably doesn't matter all that much, since the vast bulk of our characters were never gladiators. It'd have to be more of a guideline than an actual "your toy is this, so this is your weight class!" rule, though, for sure. :)

The useful and good ones were. The rest were Bluestreak.
