I just measured MP Starscream in robot mode from head to toe. the toy is 8 inches tall in bot mode. if you count the jet parts over his back shoulder,then add another inch,which makes the robot mode 9 inches tall. the robot mode is also very wide. the toy has a lot of parts. the voyager transformer size level ranges from 6 inches up to 7.2 inches tall. just because one TF voyager out of 60 is 7.8 inches tall does not mean that is the STANDARD/average voyager size. The 8 inch sized Transformers are considered the newer ultra sized TF sized class. as there are much more 8 inch sized TF toys in the ultra class. So,thus far there hasn't been any MP TF toy under the newer ultra size class. thus far all MP TF toys are 8 inches tall & higher. MP Starscream is 8 inches tall in bot mode. MP Grimlock is 8.6 inches tall in bot mode. MP Optimus is 12 inches tall in bot mode. MP Megatron is 14 inches tall in bot mode. I sincerly doubt Takara/Hasbro would do a MP Rodimus Prime bot mode in the deluxe 5.5 inch average size scale. because if takara was going to do a deluxe rodimus prime toy it would have been put in the generations TF toy line. I also sincerly doubt a faction leader like MP Rodimus would be smaller in bot mode 6.8 to 7.1 inches tall in bot mode. Takara is all about scale & rank for these MP TF toys. a faction leader MP Like rodimus Prime isn't going to be smaller than MP Starscream & MP Grimlock. regardless if he comes with a huge trailer. similar to MP Convoy with the added trailer. takara will just force buyers to pay a bit more. Takara transformers aren't trapped in size classes with set price like most of hasbro transformers toys are.
