    I'm working on a scale for the movie cons/autobots but how big is the blackbird SR71? I have two images but they're inconsistent in size..:confused:

    thanks.
    EDIT:

    It's just weird how I can't imagine room for someone to get into that plane, there seems to be no room. Jetfire was really big, but seeing this plane doesn't make him too big compared to Optimus..what do you think?

    I think you need to look at pictures from closer angles.

    Just like Starscream, Jetfire's Alt-mode is mostly flat allowing his robot mode to be smaller and Optimus sized.

    It seems Jetfire would be taller than Optimus.

    Yeah, that first picture fooled me too. I thought for sure if was real. Those are some realistic bushes! And then I noticed the cracks in the tarmac, and figured "If that was an official Air Force-type tarmac, they probably wouldn't allow giant 12 inch cracks and fissures there. You know, judging by that picture, and the cockpit sizes, a person could step in one and get their foot caught. So now it just seems like a crack in the sidewalk. ;) 

    This. The size charts in the "Screen Shots" threads indicate that Jetfire is 50 feet tall at the head, compared to Optimus' 28 feet. Comparing the two side-by-side shows that Jetfire is absolutely massive, even in his hunched over, digitigrade state. Now imagine Jetfire in his prime (HAR!), not hunched over. I'm guessing Jetfire could easily be 60 feet tall in his youth.

    Jetfire is really tall, Like G1 Skyfire.

    Remember he transforms front to back
