    While reading about various Cybertron charecters on wikipedia, it talks about the space bridge project. Well from the impression I was under from other threads around here, giant planet dudes were huge. So how are Metroplex and co able to interact with the smaller bots without a major pain in the ass? was there some major size shifting going on?

    They weren't always that big? It's implied somewhere they were built bigger over time, and that Minicons were eventually integrated into them to compensate for their huge size when it came to fine detail jobs.

    so at the end, when Metroplex and Quickmix hook up with the rest of the autobots, are they rebuilt into smaller sizes? BTW, I meant the new space bridge project at the end of the series

    The Gaigantions were big, bigger than most tf's, but not huge! Metroplex was about twice Optimus' height. Besides, you forget building big projects is their life!

    weird, I was always under the impression they were city bot sized, so the toys arent as off scaled as I thought. raises a new question, why is King Starscream standing with the Autobots in the comparison shot?

    They stayed the same size, as you see, in the background shot of the control room of the ship Primes in, you see Menasor in the back ground sitting cross-legged on the floor, just so he can fit in.

    The size seems to change from time to time, for instance, Prime in his normal robot mode, sometimes came up to Metro's ankle, sometimes up to nearly his waist. And then theres Metro's mass-shifting Axe, sometimes its about he size of Metro, sometimes, its about 2X Primes height, the mind boggles.

    Lets have a flash back to Armada episode 2, all 3 kids and their minicons could fit on Hotshot's hand......that must have been a huge sports car. and then the nightmare with scaling on tidal wave.

    There has been problems with scaling for a long time.

    humans are normally the main........"mass-shifters".
