    I know there are a lot of oversized KO TF toys- I wonder if someone would ever make oversized MP Transformers toys...maybe even 1:18 scale?

    For joes right? If it is, I want one but the joes have to be able to sit in it. I'd want an official one. A true retro crossover.

    I've studied what scale many Transformers toys are at, and very few are 1:18 scale. What few I've found include a couple of Beast Wars toys.

    Using the existing toy heights, and the size of the character according to the Takara trading cards, 1:18 scale figures include Transmetal Tarantulas. So this is to scale:

    Transformers with 1:18 scale

    BW Terrorsaur
    BW Cheetor
    BW Transmetal Tarantulas
    BW Tigatron
    BW2 Drillnuts
    BW2 Hellscream
    BW2 Scissorboy
    BWN Coroda

    Some say GI Joes have started to be 1:19 scale lately (shrinking slightly), so here are the 1:19 scale Transformers:

    BW Airazor
    BW Transmetal Optimus Primal
    BW Waspinator
    BW2 Motorarm
    BW2 Starscream
    BWN Sharpedge

    I would absolutely LOVE a 1:18th line so I could use all my toys together

    I'd love to see OS KO Seekers that stand toe to toe with MP Megs, but for the time being I've only found a KO of the regular sized MP-01.

    I can only think of one or two that might be close, and they're not MP... Then again, the scale of MPs is debatable (with exceptions of MP seekers and Megs).

    There's a huge oversize KO of movieverse Leader Op. Also, the oversize Alternator Wheeljack and Rodimus molds spring to mind.

    EDIT: and if you're willing to look beyond TFs, Happywell Roadbots have a few 1:18 transforming robots.
