    I need the help of you fellow movie fans... I am currently working on putting my movie collection as close to scale as possible. Although i completely understand we will never get perfect scale with transformers but I am shooting to get as close as possible with every figure of the movie verse.
    I have been trying to use Optimus Prime as a base to figure out the scale of the rest of the figures that came out over the past 3 films, researching the actual length of each vehicle. The only problem I have is that I am getting two different answers when i research the length of a Peter Built 379, one being 25 ft and the other being 29 ft... so which one is the right one??? My logic is telling me 29ft but I want to be persist.
    Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance!

    Depending on what scale you look at, yes, most sizes for Optimus tend to round to around 28-30 feet tall in robot mode and about the same for the length of the vehicle in this case.

    If you're interested, there is a thread in the toy discussion that has cataloged the scale of many of the movie toys. Right now, it's a little bit short on movie Autobots, but I'm hoping to add some more soon now that I'm done traveling for a bit.

    So this may be how it will go..
    ROTF leader Optimus
    (recomended) HFTD Bumblebee
    ROTF-NEST Voyager Ironhide
    Voyager Ratchet
    deluxe Sideswipe
    deluxe skids and mudflap
    deluxe Jazz

    ROTF leader Megatron (too bad he's too short unless you use a voyager prime)
    Leader class Brawl
    leader Starscream
    Deluxe ROTF-DOTM Soundwave (actauly HA Soundwave should do in robot mode)
    Leader Sentinel Prime (true size unknown)
    deluxe Barricade

    For other figures.
    Movie 1 leader megatron/HFTD voyager Prime
    ROTF leader Megatron/movie1 Voyager prime mold
    DOTM deluxe prime/DOTM voyager Sentinel/voyager Shockwave/Voyager Megatron(s)/legends bumblebee/legends soundwave/legends sideswipe/legends jazz/deluxe brawl/deluxe bonecrusher/voyager ROTF starscream/legends barricade/voyager Blackout.

    Let's see, the standard gundam height is usually 18 m tall (about 60ft); Mazinger Z (a stape Nagai super robot) is also 18 m tall (most other super robots are quite a bit taller than this); and Evas are just huge (there weren't any official height given for an Eva unit)

    I blew this pic up on my art program and...

    Optimus with trailer is 72' 0" long
    and 13' 6" high

    the Sentinel Fire truck is 38' 9" long
    and 11' 10" high

    Optimus truck by itself is 28' 11" long
    and 13' 0" high

    Megs with trailer is 48' 6" long
    and 13' 0" high.


    Hope this helps.
