    I don't know if this thread is already created or not. But what are the actual size of Beast Wars (Maximals and Predacons)?

    Thanks

    Judging by the size of Megatron's rubber duckie, human sized.

    Well, there were humans in the show. If Cheetor is the size of an actual Cheetah, along with Tigatron being the size of an actual tiger; I think we can roughly gauge their sizes as nearly human-ish.

    It depends.

    Above: "The Agenda", below: Robot Masters.

    I'm going to assume that in Robot Masters, BW Megatron and G1 Prime are the same size because it's meant to be advertising the toyline, and in said toyline; they are both the same size.

    Bob Forward told everyone that Rattrap was 5'0 in the first season.

    Here he is with the other maximals. Optimal Optimus is supposed to be the around the same size as Optimus Prime.

    If Cheetor was the same size as a real cheetah, how big would you say a typical cheetah be to a Optimus-like semi?

    Also from above, I trust The Agenda pic more. So Micromasters sized.

    Also, early humans were shown to smaller, but not by much (excluding Optimal Optimus).

    I think Optimal Optimus was still noticeably smaller than Optimus Prime. Maximals/Predacons are small. Clips from "The Agenda Part 3" should provide the proper context, particularly Megatron and "Optimal Situation" as the Maximals are seen around Optimus Prime.

    The ones with an alt-mode that's more or less human-scaled, like Tigatron, Primal, Cheetor, and Rhinox appear to all be pretty much the size of their alt-modes, but some smaller animals (rat, falcon, spider, wasp, crab) are much larger than they'd really be, and a few (like Megatron) are much smaller than they should be.

    Scale, it's a lost art.

    what always made me upset according to the toy package bio he was the same as king kong (Move over King Kong, Optimus Primal is ready to rock! The heroic leader has bio-genetically re-engineered his body structure into a gargantuan robotic gorilla! Cybernetically fused musculature has enhanced strength to super-powered levels. Shoulder-mounted, mega-blast missile cannons launch devastating attacks upon foolish Predacon invaders. When they force him to fight, they force him to win!)plus as megatron in his t-Rex mode should be at least 20 feet tall.

    Roughly human-sized.

    I say roughly because of the variation among them.

    The toy bios are their own micro-continuity that has generally been entirely ignored by everyone in favour of the much better show.

    There were some Japanese trading cards that gave specific heights as far as I know.

    i assume other then the rat, and the spiders and bugs, the rest of them are the size of the real animal.

    with exceptions of formers like primal, who appears to be a giant gorilla, mainly so he can fight the regular size t-rex.

    but i assume the cats, dino's, rhinox, and the rest are the size of normal animals.
