    Okay, I know I'm gonna get a million different answers for this, but does anyone know the exact heights for the main robots in the movie? I'm crazy for scale accuracy, and I'm always watching the movie and trying to imagine how big they are in relation to humans and to each other.

    Every once in a while I'll notice a shot that looks off and my mental physics calculator goes into overdrive. Like Optimus being the same height as Starscream for some reason.

    If anyone knows and doesn't feel like listing them all here, I'd appreciate a URL or anything.

    I'd actually really like to see a size chart of ALL movie Transformers... One for Decepticons and one for Autobots.

    In TF1 from what I remember, here are the reported heights:

    Autobots:
    Optimus Prime - 32 ft.
    Ironhide - 26 ft.
    Ratchet - 24 ft.
    Bumblebee - 18 ft. (however other sources say he's slightly over 16 ft, like the guide book.)
    Jazz - 13 ft.

    Decepticons:
    Megatron - 40 ft.
    Starscream - 36 ft.
    Blackout - 42 ft.
    Brawl - 30 ft.
    Bonecrusher - 30 ft.
    Barricade - 16 ft.
    Frenzy - 5.5 ft.

    From what I remember reading, here are a couple of TF2 bots:

    Autobots:
    Sideswipe - 15 ft. (from artwork scale)
    Twins - 11.4 ft. each (from the guide book)
    Arcee Sisters - 9 ft. each

    Decepticons:
    Sideways - 15 ft.
    Long Haul - 50 ft. (60 ft. if you count back kibble)
    Mixmaster - 25-30 ft. (depending on stance and artwork)
    Rampage - 22 ft. (roughly)

    I don't know who made this (I did not make it nor am I taking any credit for finding it), but as far as I can estimate (blurry as some of them are), this size chart is as close to accurate as I can tell. They're all overlapped so you have to squint to make some of them out, but it serves its purpose. I'd like to see an official version of one of these. I think everybody would. Get to it, Hasbro!

    While Jazz, Bumblebee, Ratchet & Ironhide look right, this chart is way wrong on several of the TF's. Prime is way taller than that (Ironhide only comes up to Optimus' chest). Bonecrusher is taller than that. Blackout isn't that much bigger than Megs. And Megatron is taller than that compared to Starscream.

    Yeah, there's a couple mistakes, but it looks like they had to crop it together on something like MS Paint. According to the measurement bar on the side, Optimus should be a few feet taller and Ironhide should be a foot or two shorter.
    Bonecrusher's not too far off, but Blackout was probably exaggerated a few feet too tall.
    But even though I'm pretty sure Starscream is smaller than that in the movie, I think he should be about the size shown here if he transforms from a 60-foot F-22 Raptor freakin' jet.

    Why are Megatron and Starscream so much taller than Optimus? That has to be wrong.

    Ermm, they couldn't find the dimensions of a 76 Camaro, so they used a CROWN VICTORIA as reference? Heck, my car probably has closer dimensions to a Camaro than that...

    Plus, they're using a YF-22, and not an F-22.

    As for Prime vs SS---see this:

    There is no way that scale is correct. I mean Megatron being 8 feet taller than Prime... c'mon! In the end fight between them both in TF1, they look exactly the same height. I mean seriously, Starscream being 4 feet taller than Prime - yeah right!

    I know what you mean Limewire. It just doesn't make sense. It looks like they've just thrown down some random numbers before actually thinking about it. They day Starscream towers over Prime will be a dark day!

    When that official chart was first posted, it was mentioned that the shorter Megs was his official height (35ft). The larger Megs(40ft) was the height they used when building his life-sized leg models in Sector 7.
