Come on, guys....we KNEW this ship was going to be small (to fit into the $20 "starfighter" price range) and Hasbro ships are never, ever, ever to scale.
I already said the scale's not a shocker to me... I knew it was going to be small. Even I'm a little shocked at HOW small it is though.
That said, you couldn't be more wrong about how Hasbro gets "scale"... You even cited the TIE Fighter's which actually have been to-scale if you go by models and things. The Jedi Fighters, the Landspeeder... Hasbro gets it right some. It's all about what price point they're focused on for any given vehicle, not that they just underscale everything to save a buck. The Snowspeeder's substantially oversized actually because it fits the pricepoint they want it to fit and the mold toolings are readily available. Not everything Hasbro does is underscaled though, and when they actually get it right they do a pretty decent job... They're not in the league of other companies that do scale toys, but they're good for what they do generally, and the price is usually in the ballpark of what one would be hopeful for.
It seems like if you're complaining about scale, you're in the wrong hobby.
Or it could just be that you collect substantially differently... I collect scale toys from the military too... It's nice when you get that with Star Wars too, especially given Hasbro's afinity towards milking a mold for every penney they invested into it to the point that they're surely reaping near pure profits on many of them at this point... Scale will always be a complaint of mine, but that doesn't mean I'm not accepting of NOT getting a scaled AT-AT or whatnot. The Infiltrator to me is a vehicle I think Hasbro should've just done differently... Or not at all. Honestly I'd rather seen something else retooled to scale (IE: The Snowspeeder, AT-ST, Y-Wing... Something). That's me though... This ship also didn't mean anything to me. I'll be just as happy not to buy it really. It's just not a ship I'm interested in.
Had this been a grossly underscaled Y-Wing resculpt, I think I'd be much more disappointed though.
