    Hey there! To make this short, I'm just looking for some head-to-toe measurements of the toys listed below in inches preferably. Some comparison pictures would be nice too! :)  I'm planning to use five of these figures for base molds for 6-7" Combaticons customs line in the future so I might as well get some references now. Any base mold suggestions are welcomed too! Ideally for me, I'd like them to be taller the FP Insecticons (a little under 5"), but shorter than the MP Seekers (8.5"). So pretty much around Hercules-bots height (6ish"), with Onslaught being the tallest of course. Keep in mind that I don't plan on having them combine (yet ;) ). Thanks!

    ONSLAUGHT
    Cybertron Mudflap/TFTM Mudflap:
    Universe Onslaught/Hardhead/Timelines Clench:
    Universe Countdown/Cyberton Defense Red Alert

    BRAWL
    TFTM Deluxe Brawl: 5"
    Cybertron Defense Scattorshot/Universe Dropshot/Overload/Timelines Flak:
    Classics/Universe Megatron (Tank):
    Generations Warpath:

    BLAST OFF
    Classics Astrotrain:
    RID Rail Spike:

    VORTEX
    HFTD Tomahawk/DOTM Vortex:
    Universe Blades/Springer/Cybertron Springer:
    Energon Quickstrike/Bulkhead:

    SWINDLE
    Animated Swindle: 5.25"

    Thanks again in advance!

    From his feet to the top of his head, Deluxe Brawl is ~5 inches tall/12.5 CM
    his back kibble adds another inch to that.

    ^Thank you! But if he's really that short, I can't see myself using him. :banghead:  ^

    After some research on Google and comparing figures to others purely on speculation I've come up with some rough numbers.

    Onslaught as himself: 8"
    Quickstrike/Bulkhead as Vortex: ~7.5"
    Dropshot/Def. Scattershot as Brawl: ~7.5"

    Still deciding on who to use for Swindle and Blast Off. I like Robot_art's idea by using a modded Rail Spike for Blast Off though. Just curious on the height still. And Countdown as Swindle maybe? Not entirely sure.

    Looks like you want Voyagers for the limbs. Lots of people like using Crossover Captain America/Iron Man Humvee's for Swindle.

    Blast Off's a tough one if you still want an Orbiter. Closest I can figure at that size is Energon Jetfire.

    Yup! Four Voyager-sized figures with Ultra Onslaught. The only figures I'm sure on are Onslaught as himself and Dropshot as Brawl. While the Crossover Iron Man is an obvious choice for Swindle, I kind of want to give Countdown a try. About the same height as Dropshot if I speculated correctly and has a more bulky, military look to him in my opinion.

    As for Vortex and Blast Off, I'd prefer if they were about the same height as well. Depending on Blast Off, Vortex is either going to be the Universe Blades mold or Energon Bulkhead mold.

    But in the end, I just want the Combaticons to look like a ruthless group of heavily armed mercenaries. :D

    Animated Swindle is 5 1/4"

    You mean the deluxe-size Megatron, I assume?

    Yup.

    I've think I decided to try out Countdown as Swindle. Still waiting on some measurements for the Evac mold and Quickstrike mold!
