There's really no point in complaining about some of the figs not being in minifig scale.
This line breaks a lot of rules from before and the taller figs aren't supposed to be minifigs. The whole line is obviously based on the notion that this strange hybrid would allow the use of "minifigs" as both the short and the tiny carhacters.
Take "fabuland", "Jack Stone" and "Winnie the Pooh Duplo" and mix it all with some minifig stuff and you got this line. I think much of this looks awsome, but it isn't a minifig line in that sense that it's going to be played out in a world in minifig scale.
Actually I think our own world is more to the point scalewise.
Maybe Shop@Hope is going to sell full scale replicas of Andy's cardboard box space suit.
I think this line is going to be a success with kids and there's a lot of new elements that AFOL:s would like to have. But remember that the aspect of wanting cool elements for your normal MOC building hobby is not a very constructive reason to complain about design choices in a licenced toy line.
And by the way. You are going to be forced to buy massive sets to get these cool figs. Imagine all the brickbuilt real life stuff that they could have in the sets. Etchy Scetch, tape recorder, remote for the car and so on.
