    Hey Gang!
    Gotta kinda oddball question here, does anyone know how tall Daniel was in the 1986 TF movie? I know he's s'posed to be like 12 yrs old but I cant find any reference to his height! I got a neat upcoming project & would love to find this out.

    If anyone knows, please give me a holler? It'd be awesomely appreciated!

    CHEERS!

    The average 12-year-old is what? Five feet tall, give or take an inch or two?

    Interesting question. Dunno. Is there any reference to how tall Hot Rod is? Then find out how tall Daniel is in relation to his leg, maybe?

    Forget that, just find an image of Daniel with his parents (I'm sure there's one in Madman's Paradise) and extrapolate from that. Spike's probably 6', give or take a couple of inches.

    What you want is one of the size charts that was produced for reference in the production of the film. Maybe there's one on Jim Sorenson's blog? I've never seen one, but that doesn't mean that one doesn't exist somewhere.

    12? I always thought he looked more like a 10 years old. Let say that Spike and Carley got busy around 1985-6 so that makes daniel about 9 or 10 years old by the year 2005.

    You're math is off Iacon. 1985-2005 would be 20 years, not just 10.

    :lol  Yeah, Spike didn't even have a driver's license in 1985, so I'm assuming he was only fifteen during the first season. Carly was older than he was, but probably not by much, though didn't she make some reference to being in college early on? Spike wasn't legal yet, how early do you think they hooked up?!

    the thing that always puzzles me is how young Hasbro/Takara made spike & carly look in the 1986 movie,season 3 & in the japanese headmasters series.

    Hasbro/Takara made both spike & carly look around the age of 29 to 30 years of age in the 1986 TF movie,season 3,rebirth & japanese headmasters cartoon series.

    Spike & carly should have easily been 36 to 40+years old in the 1986 TF movie,season 3,rebirth & japanese headmasters series.

    Because both Spike & carly were easily 16 to 17 years of age each in 1985/season 2. 20 years later in 1986 in the movie spike & carly should have been 36 years old each. in season 3 both spike & carly should have been a year older & now 37 years old. Season 3 in TF time line lasted at least 2 years. so in rebirth both spike & carly should have been 39 years ofd age. while in the japanese headmasters cartoon series,it was the year 2011,so both spike & carly should have been around 40 years of age each.

    ^^Maybe they had aged very well?

    But beyond that theory, I've got nothing.

    I'm actually writing a fanfic set from the Movie through "The Rebirth" that explains both Spike and Carly's youthful appearances and Carly's lack of similarity to Daniel - as well as her absences during major events in Daniel's life (such as his birthday). I'm hoping it'll all make some sort of sense.

    Advanced Cybertronian medicine. If they have the tech to make a paralysed girl walk again with an exosuit or build someone a life support suit, I'm sure they have something to fight the visible signs of aging.

    Or yeah, maybe they just age really well.
