    Scale: 1 pixel = 2km to a side (the earth's moon is shown to get a sense of scale)

    Go to the -2000x tab, if you are using internet explorer you can even drag both death stars up next to Unicron...

    Except that this sizing of unicron is just a guess sadly. Unicron could be much much much bigger.

    If you go by Cyberton's size in "The Ultimate Doom" compared to Unicron's relative size to Cyberton in the movie it's pretty close.

    so Cybertron/Unicron are THAT much smaller than the moon? Unicron and Primus are "as big as planets" yet they arent even half the size of Earths moon? This chart is kind of weak in that respect. I mean, Cybertron isn't a very big thing to be fighting over...no wonder they came to Earth :) 

    Also in the first SW movie dont they think the Death Star is a moon?... thats one small moon

    The deathstar is also shown in computer imaging as being smaller than the moon orbiting the planet the rebel base is on.

    Unicron- "A minor nuisance that should not warrant my attention."

    As an aside, thanks for the pic of Unicron, I needed a bigger version for art reference!

    There are smaller moons than the Death Star in our own solar system. Earth's moon is actually pretty damn big.

    And yes, Cybertron is a small, dense planet. To have the same mass as earth, a planet made entirely of metal would have to be downright puny. But the most conclusive evidence is a view of the planet from space. Roads and individual buildings on cybertron can be seen easily from beyond orbit. Unless highways on cybertron have lanes thousands of miles wide, the planet's tiny.

    Moon's are just satallites that orbit planets. They can be any size really. Look at Phobos. It's basically a medium sized astoroid.

    Now the real question is how big is Unicron's (and as such, Primus') robot mode? He does expand quite a bit.

    Well, it would make sense to have tons of lanes when the majority of inhabitants move around as cars of one form or another. You know, gridlock and such.

    But if you go by the comic using Cybertron for scale, Unicron would be slightly smaller than Saturn since that was the size compairasion as Cybertron. And while moon sizes can very from small to large, the Death Star was refered to as a small moon in the movie. (and both the Rebel base and the moon of Endor were Large moons that orbited Gas giants.

    And Earth's moon has been called into question as beeing a true moon verses a small planetoid that orbits Earth by a few scientists over the last few years. Mainly due to it's size and suspected origin.

    The big problem is Unicron doesn't have a consistant size since he keeps adding to his mass so you have to specificly reffer to unicron only as he appeared in the movie.

    Now if we can just find someone to answer "CAN A LIGHTSABER CUT THROUGH ADAMANTIUM" and "STAR DESTROYER VS. THE ENTERPRISE" the internet might not need to exsist anymore!

    :lol 

    If you lookat that same website, it appears a Star Destroyer is quite a bit bigger than even the largest version of the Enterprise, then again, the Enterprise(s) have been shown to be quite manuverable...
