Bigger than Armada Unicron for sure.
My suspicion is that MPBW will be the core Maximal crew along with Megatron and Waspinator. Maybe Tarantulas and Blackarachnia, since quite a bit can be reused from one to the other.

As it is, it's really just the first season stuff that's noticeably different from the toys, right? I don't recall Optimal Optimus having a great disparity between the animation model or the toy. I mean, they can make super-fancy versions of anything, but the new driving force behind the MP figures is replicating the robot animation model, so making a triple digit figure of something that, at a glance, isn't much different from the previous figure seems like a poor choice. But, if they think people will buy it...
