That's the rationale I spoke of.
Ya, that's the one I hear the most too. But if that's the case, explain Absorbing Man who isn't known to necessarily grow or Bor who isn't a BAF but uses the same buck and isn't known to be any larger than Thor. These guys are all listed in the 6'1" to 6'5" range and coulda or shoulda been done in scale with the Hyperion or Odinson bucks, but all these figures stand taller than the Colossus figure who is listed at 7'5". I know it seems anal but I know I'm not alone in saying "Just pick a freaking scale and stick with it already". I would gamble to say that most of us don't mind reusing molds as much as just being way outta whack with size accuracy. If Hasbro really expects to be able to outdo everything Toybiz ever did, that's the very least they need to do cuz if TB did anything right (and they did a lot right), the sense of scale was pretty spot on. With a few hiccups here & there.
As far as over all size, I don't necessarily care how damn big a BAF is as long as they do the damn thing right, but at the same time when we get crap like like Mantis (who was good, but absolutely not BAF worthy) and Okoye (who basically set the low bar for the history of BAFs) you can't help but start to think Hasbro's starting to take the cheap route. It literally would have taken less than pennies per thousands to add an extra half inch to the leg portions of the Sasquatch to make him taller than Juggernaut, if only by a little bit. To add to it, you look at something like the Clayface C&C from the much less successful DC Multiverse line (who is bigger than the Hulkbuster BAF, yet still seems very much in scale with the 6" figures), and wonder exactly how much Hasbro is willing to skimp on to save a few pennies. Have we not been staunch and loyal supporters of the line this far, regardless of whether we fall on the MCU or comic side of the fanbase? Have we not stuck with them through the hostile takeover of Toybiz and the Dark Days of ML? It's not a sense of entitlement or an unachievable set of expectation. It's just an issue of product loyalty and it should extend both ways. We've stuck with you this far, don't short change us now on the quality and accuracy I don't think we're out of line to ask for on your part.
