Are the Alternity TF's in the same scale as the Alternators TF's?
NO way. Alternity figures are deluxe size ( sort of).
I'm just wondering if the Alterity Bumblebee will fit in with my Alternators.
No, they are not.
I happen to have a handful of Alternators and I have Alternity Skywarp. Alternity Skywarp is definitely not in scale with the Alternators, especially in alt-mode.
I was just surprised how small he is compared to Alternators.
Well if they are smaller than the Bumblebee might work.
I have all the Alternity except Nemesis Prime and almost all Alternators and Binaltech.
They are diffrent scales however if you want to pose them in 'bot-mode many people seem to think Bumblebee and Cliffjumper fit right in.
Myself I wouldn't do that because even if they are in bot-mode I know they would be out of scale if they were in car-mode, but if you aren't weird like me in that regard Bumbles and Cliff look good as robots with the Alternators.
Thanks. As I will have them in Bot mode I think I'll try to track down a Bumblebee.
Robot mode, probably. Vehicle mode, definitely not. But if it works for you, go for it!
He'd be really, really tiny by comparison.
Bear in mind WFC Bumblebee is larger then Alternity Bumblebee.
Alternators/Binaltech are 1/24 scale. Alternity are 1/32 scale.
Not quite. It depends on how you do the legs, I have Alternity Cliffjumper and he is about a head taller when stood up completely straight with the knees extended all the way.
they have different scale ratios, as CyberShadow stated.
the Alternity are Takara only, IIRC. whereas the Alternators/Binaltech is available from both companies, albeit having several notable differences (i.e Binaltech being mostly diecast, alternators pure plastic)
The evolution of the line is....
KISS Players - 1/24 scale - Takara release (Japan), with a human (girl) figure and accessories (the KISS line also included the cassette redecos and other, non-1/24 scale figures).
Binaltech - 1/24 scale - Takara release (Japan), containing metal sections.
Alternators - 1/24 scale - Hasbro release (western), no metal sections, all plastic, this line duplicated most of the Binaltech line, and then continued and expanded it (Ravage Jag, Rumble, etc).
Alternity - 1/32 scale - Takara release (Japan), contains metal sections and some 'automorph' principles.
Alternity Bumblebee & Cliffjumper will fit in robot size, but yes they're a smaller scale than the Binaltech. Here are some pictures of the sizes.
Bumblebee looks grotesquely over sized next to the alternity toys in bot mode. Not only is he just as tall as every one else, his head is nearly twice as large as anybody else's.
I end up displaying him next to my Alt/BT toys in bot mode (he's perfect if you look at the G1 toy/cartoon sizes), and with my alternity toys in car mode.
It's a lot like how the old G1 mini car thing worked out...
