    Just bought MP Grimlock yesterday, and I love him, but unfortunately he's not very in-scale with the rest of my collection. So, I'm thinking of purchasing Classics voyager OP and Megatron, but I'd like to see if they're close to scale first. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Prime is not in this picture but if you have any of these other guys it could help. This all I have at the moment my henkei Prime is stored away until I can make some more room.

    MP Grimlock is too tall. A Grimlock that wants to be in scale with OP has to be about a head taller from OP. Take a gander at the War of the Dinobots episode. There's a clear shot of OP and Grim shaking hands in it, with a good side by side frame.


    EDIT: FOUND IT!!

    I think it's better for him to be too tall for Classics Optimus than too shrimpy next to MP Optimus~

    Although with the right transformation of the feet, Classics deluxe Grimlock can almost stand eye to eye with Classics Op. It's not particularly ideal, but if you have your Classics guys in a group as I do, you'll never notice.

    Unfortunately, there's no way I can achieve perfect scale with this. Ideally I'd love to, however there's not really any G1 Prime mold that's really in scale with Grimlock, so I'm just trying for the closest. Anything's better than the Classics Deluxe OP I've got now.

    One thing I have learned from watching G1 Toons is you can never trust scale. One episode he can fit the whole autobot army on his back and the next his is the same size as an earth bound T-rex. I bet I could find an image where he is towering over Prime.

    The fact is grimlock should be taller than prime and the classic prime is a better scale than mp. However any one got an image of him with faith leader? Kinda wanna see how those to scale up.

    That's why I use the cartoon scale chart over at TFWiki's "scale" page. And luckily on said chart they've got OP and Grimlock right next to each other. According to it, Grimlock's supposed to be about a head or two taller than Prime, so this is probably the closest I'm going to be able to find.

    G1 episodes are never a good indicator of scale.

    Thanks katch i know there might be some in the cool stuff but that would take to long. That scale between them is perfect.

    If only Faith Leader weren't so expensive, and then there's the issue that there's no Megatron in scale with him (as far as I know). I think the Classics will work well enough for me.

    Wow Seeing that picture with MP Grimlock and Faith Leader is the first time I ever even felt an itch of interest in getting Faith Leader.

    Perhaps when Dispair Leader (playing on a name for Megatron) comes out I may have to reconsider getting them both.


    DAMN YOU SCALE lol

    Thanx

    i get the feeling the OP doesn't own the city/bases.
    NOTHING is in scale with them, lol.

    i kinda ignore scale with MP Grimmy and Classics Optimus because Grimlock should (in alt mode) be monstrous even next to Prime in bot mode.

    me, i feel claustrophobic when i try to maintain scale. it's just so liberating to look at MP Grimlock and all i can say is "wow."

    To each his own. thank goodness there are plenty of variants of Prime.
