    Trying to figure out how tall this character would be. He's a 28 foot Baja. Too lazy to copy-paste his bio right this second. But he's a Decepticon. 2007 Movie world.

    The height is determined via the transformation. Map out two ft. sections of the boat hull, and when "transforming" keep track of where each 2ft. mark ends. Based on what I can gather from the robot mode, it appears that he would be roughly 30 feet tall or so. A standard car's robot is about twenty feet. Optimus Prime's was like 30 or so. Wavecrusher there would probably be around Prime's height; speed boats are huge.

    "Have you thought of a military upfitting for his boat mode, making him more like the first movie chars?"

    he's kinda right.it's close if not accurate.
    if it's 28 ft. long,imagine it on it's end to get an idea.

    I wouldn't feel right making him -as- tall as Prime. But looking at the physics. He'd probably be around that tall. But I think I'm gonna with 30 feet. That's kind of scary seeing he'd probably be as tall as my house o_o...

    The ideas of sicking him on my enemies fill me with great pleasure. Heehee.

    And for the record; his name is "Crabsmasher". Boaters talk for when you run into ground alot. Which was what the old Satisfied (the original boat you see in the picture) did, fun memories that.

    Thanks for the help guys :)

    My general rule of thumb when guesstimating robot mode height is to just multiply the vehicle mode length by 1.5

    His robot form reminds me of a panda bear, especially the face.

    Nice work. :)
