Hmm... it's an interesting choice, but can those fan things fold down to rest flat on top of his shoulders? I don't have the mold, so I don't know.


from what ive seen im sure they can be
OKAY! I realized JUST NOW as I was looking at a pamphlet thing for the Reveal the Sheild line that Deep Dive is a repaint of HftD Seaspray, and in that picture, the turbines are angled up in the way that Protoform X has those flat things on his shoulders!

Now, they are not right on top of his shoulders like they are in X's case (they're actually right behind them), but I do think the mold is a REALLY good choice for a DofP Rampage.

Where's the pic? :? :?:

EDIT: Nevermind. It's showing up now.

Looking closer at this mold... I guess it could work, though he'd definitely need a new head. There'd be some artistic liberties and "cheats" (like his flippers for X's feet) taken in the overall shape of the Protoform X's body, particularly his arms and legs.

Plus, how much taller than Terradive is this figure? Since we're going with Terradive for Depth Charge, let's hope that this Voyager isn't all that much taller than that Deluxe.

The flippers on his feet aren't always deployed. They can be out or not depending on who transformed the figure.

I honestly don't care how much bigger this figure is than Terradive. First off, X is HUGE in that flash back. It's only appropriate that this figure would be, too. Second, Depth Charge get's upgraded to Transmetal in his first appearance, so it would reasonable that he increased in size when he was reformatted as well.

I know. I meant that the flippers could be folded out to be used as X's real feet since they look closer to his CG model's feet than that toy mold's normal feet do. The "cheat" in this would be that the flippers are flatter than the CG model's feet, in spite of their resemblance to them.

Yeah, but did anyone really change their size when they were upgrade from normal to Transmetal? Cheetor, Rattrap, Primal, Megs, Tarantulas, and later Blackarachnia all appeared to be roughly the same size as there were before they were Transmetalized.

Rattrap definitely got bigger. At LEAST in his beast mode. He definitely increased insize. There are of course the obvious examples of Optimal Optimus and dragon Megatron, but they aren't really Transmetals, or Transmetal IIs. I'm also pretty sure that Blackarachnia got bigger in her upgrade as well, but not as much.

She was still shorter than Cheetor and Silverbolt.

I wonder how much taller the BW Depth Charge toy (from head to toe) is than the Terradive toy.

The Transmetal IIs had powers like that. Remember when Cheetor first became TM2, he made his gun come to him with the power of his spark alone. TM2 Dinobot could heal very quickly. It was just a TM2 thing. They had special powers.

Like I said, if she did, it wasn't as much.
