    Something I've been wondering how tall sentinel is compared to Optimus. Some shots in the movie they look about the same height, but it's hard to tell. Thoughts?

    Sentinel is taller than Optimus by a few feet.

    I got the impression that Sentinel was taller, but not by much.

    I was thinking that Megs and Sentinel are about the same height with Op just being a bit shorter

    I would think that Senital's a bit taller because his alt. modes looks a bit bigger.

    It looked like Sentinel is taller, Optimus Prime and now, because of Megatron's damage, he's slightly shorter, but not by much than Optimus. But before, in the first movie, Megatron would have towered over both Primes. He was a beast in the first one.

    Sentinel's pretty tall for an old backstabber and Megatron stayed in a washing machine too long.

    I'm guessing in the 35 foot range. If you scale him according to his leader class figure (which yes, they may not always be the best due to different transformation schemes and whatnot, but they won't be that far off),

    Alternate mode:
    Figure: ~9.5 inches long
    Actual vehicle: ~35-37 feet long

    Robot mode:
    Figure: ~9.75 inches tall
    Actual: ...

    Using this as a guide, it's safe to assume that Sentinel's height is more-or-less the length of his alternate mode. In the 35 foot range, give or take. And even if there is some official discrepancy in the transformation methods, Sentinel would still be between 30-40 feet tall. Averaging out to, as I said, 35 feet.

    So yes, I'd say that Sentinel is taller, but ~5-7 feet.

    Pretty sure Sentinel was taller, but only just.
