    Well, after careful diliberation, I may have found the (damn near) perfect (not crappy) selection of in-scale movie Decepticons that I thought I'd share. (Mods can close this if they think it's unnessesary)

    LoC Barricade.

    FAB/Deluxe Brawl.

    Deluxe Bonecrusher.

    FAB Megatron.

    FAB Starscream

    Voyager Blackout with mini-Scorponok.

    Unfortunatly, I can't think of Frenzy, I also don't have these figures so I can't post a together shot. Plus, I have no Idea which Autobots could possibly corespond.

    On a side note, LoC Jazz goes well with Leader Megs. ;)  *Squish!*

    Although don't let this stop you from picking up the awesome not-in-scale 'Cons like Leader Megs, Voyager SS and Deluxe Bonecrusher.

    EDIT: God I'm a retard today, could a Mod please move this to Toyark please and thank you?

    That sounds pretty darn close. Good thinking. If you have 'em, could you please post some pics?

    Sorry.

    I'm sure someone like Megatroptimus could.

    Megatron and Starscream. The same size?

    Laughable at best.

    Actually, I think FAB SS is shorter, hense my listing him.

    Notice Megs' legs are at an angle, so he should be taller than Starscream. But remember, they're like the same height in the movie.

    I was contemplating a good scaled display also. I agree with most of your list.
    Though I would probably keep Deluxe Brawl, cuz he is closer in size to Bonecrusher who is around the same size as Prime according to the seen trailers.


    And based on the size of Megs holding Jazz in the trailer and Barricade being only 16ft tall, (I thought I read Jazz was around 13ft), then Leader Megs is definately best compared to Legends Jazz.

    Since Jazz isn't much bigger then Megs' lower leg.

    Also, on a rant, Blackout's helicopter mode is 88 feet long, an F-22 is 62 feet long.
    If anyone other Decep should get a leader scale, its Blackout, NOT BRAWL!!
    And based on this pic, a scaled display of Autobots vs Deceps is going to be difficult, if not impossible. Starscream is A BEAST!!!

    Then I remembered this old pic, which was supposed to be used to show scale during the final battle in the movie. Looks like Starscream is a bit shorter then Megs but a lot wider, even though the designs have changed somewhat since then. Regardless, both are taller then Prime. Brawl looks pretty big too, so Hasbro is not going to make a scale display very easy at all.

    You can always go by the alt modes for comparison, as we know their sizes.

    Let me quote myself from the FAB Brawl thread:

    Blackout has to be longer than Starscream in alt mode,
    Bonecrusher and Brawl are about the same length,
    Blackout is about thrice the length of Bonecrusher.

    Deluxe Barricade is hugely out of scale, so LoC really is a good choice.
    My suggestion in the other thread was to devide them all by military and street vehicles.
    This way, Barricade goes along the Autobots, while the rest is acceptable.

    And let's not forget that Blackout is the biggest TF in the movie, but his Voyager is about the size of a tall Deluxe.

    Btw, Splits, Starscream is a good 5 feet taller than Megatron.

    Oh, maybe Screamer could stand on his tippy toes?

    Also, Blackout's head may only be up to a tall deluxe, but he's as big as any voyager. Have you seen his robot mode in the movie? He's actually not as big as his toy. (juding by the helicopter chest kibble)

    Yeah, I've seen it.

    Regardless, we need a Supreme Blackout.

    The thing that always hits me about this picture is how enormous the Topkick is! It dwarfs Ratchet and is almost as big as Optimus' truck mode! That's a pickup truck for men compensating for something alright! :)

    Yeah, Blackout as a chopper is huge. I remember seeing that chopper at an airshow and being impressed at the fact that it dwarfed the F-16.

    The topkick isn't a pickup truck though. It's a utility truck, mostly for commerical use. Ironhide is a custom topkick with a bed attached and exhaust pipes running up the sides.

    It's not like anyone can go into a dealership and buy anything even close to Ironhide.

    So true.
    Most topkicks seemed to have a bed like these:

    I second this. We definetly need a Supreme Blackout. I'd buy more than one if Hasbro was willing to produce it.
