    During the forest scene, after optimus killed the griondor, he was very shorter than grindor. After megatron killing optimus, it looked like they had similar height (optimus is little short). I thought megatron is the biggest decepticon in TF1 and TF2.

    Go look up how large an MH-53 is. Blackout was the largest Decepticon in the first movie.

    Also, how can Megatron be the biggest with Devastator around?

    Yea, Blackout (outside of Demolishor/Devastator) was the biggest and this also became the consensus after the first movie.

    Devastor, Grindor, Demolisher and Longhaul were all bigger than Megs.

    Technically speaking, Grindor is bigger than Blackout, by a small margin.

    The MH-53 Blackout turns into is 88 feet long,
    while the CH-53 that Grindor is is 99 feet long.

    Yes Grindor is taller then Megs. I watched that forest scene many times. Prime was able to hang off Grindors shoulders so that alone shows how tall he is.
    Prime is just a tad shorter than Megs so i doubt he'll be able to hang of his shoulders.

    This is what is said in some places. Others tell us Blackout was taller, that he "loomed over Megatron's shoulder".

    Blackout and Grindor are both bigger than Megatron. Not by a very huge amount, like say Long Haul or Devastator, but definitely a noticable enough amount to confidently say that they are bigger than Megs. Though it's kinda sad that the same can't be said for the toys of them...

    I'm glad somebody brought this up, because scale with these movies is something I always latch onto since its real life and real physics comes into play. According to several sources for the first movie, Blackout is a good bit taller than Megatron in robot mode, so it makes sense that Grindor, a coptor bigger than Blackout, would be even taller. (But I like that, Megatron doesn't necessarily have to be the biggest to be in charge) Long Haul and Demolisher, both being meant for massive quarry-digging and construction, would have been even more massive, probably making up the two largest single-bodied robots in the movie. Devastator takes the cake, but only because he cheats and combines.

    Something that did bug me in this movie is how Starscream appeared to only be a little taller than Optimus, even though a Peterbilt semi is roughly around twenty feet long and an F-22 Raptor jet is around sixty feet long.

    Starscream's legs goes down under the F-22. I think thats why he is taller in robor mode.

    Starscream's size bugged me too. He was the second biggest in the first movie after Blackout. Now all of a sudden, in the second film, he's only marginally larger than Optimus. I figured they did it just so the fight in the forest would be more dynamic which they did in turn to make Optimus look powerful.

    Here goes the scale feud again....
    Megatron was way bigger than Blackout in Movie 1

    In 2, Megatron was shrunk down to a similar size to Optimus, Grindor is much bigger.

    Yes, Megatron WAS bigger than Blackout in 07

    There's alot of people bigger than Megs to be honest.

    The Fallen, Long Haul, probably Jetfire... it's no surprise
