    I was looking at some pics of G1 Astrotrain and Starscream and a thought popped into my head.

    Are the new TF classics pretty comparable in size to their G1 counterparts or are they alot smaller?

    Maybe someone who has both versions of some of them could comment on here.
    Or, better yet maybe we could get some side to side comparison pics posted in this thread.

    Sorry if this subject was posted already and THANKS to anyone who posts!!!

    BWTF.com has some

    Prime, Megs, Astro, Screamer + Rodimus are all about the same size of the G1's in Robot Mode.
    Bumblebee is about 2X originals height, I dont know about Grimlock + Mirage.

    Classics Grimlock is maybe a head taller in robot mode, Mirage is almost twice the height of his G1 counterpart, Bumblebee is twice the size of G1. Starscream is a bit smaller in plane mode, but the same height when in robot mode. I don't know about Astrotrain.

    Yeah, the scale is one of the cool things about Classics. I don't know if it was intentional by Hasbro but its a nice touch.

    Astrotrain is about twice the original size too. All of them are at least a little bigger than G1.

    i think most of you forget how small the original g1s compared to the current stuff.

    minibots? the original deluxes are the size of todays basics.
