    Just was wondering what any of you thought would be the best figures to keep the cast of Transformers Prime the most in scale.

    The main ones I'm interested in getting a distinction on are Optimus Prime and Megatron.

    Mainline Optimus and Megatron are in scale with each other, but FE Optimus is in better scale with the majority of the Prime line. The whole line's a bit of a mess scale-wise; everything is *close* but it's just off enough to be obvious.

    The Prime line has actually been pretty accurate with scale so far.

    If you want a lot of bang for your buck, I would go with Cyberverse. Commander OP and Megatron are both really good toys. In fact, almost all the Cyberverse figures are great, and they all fit together size-wise, except for Starscream, who is much too tall, and Breakdown, who is a little too short.

    Scale is quite good in this line, especially with the decepticons. The only problem I have really is that VOyager Megatron needs to be bigger, to be bigger than FE Optimus, who scale awesome with the rest of the autobots. Basically, if PRID Megatron and Dreadwing were bigger, and Soundwave was FE Starscreams height, it'd be effing awesome.

    Well I'm thinking of picking up the Arms Micron Darkness Megatron. Was really just wondering if the regular voyage Prime or FE Prime was going to be more in scale with him.

    Actually it would be really cool if they gave us a Weaponizer Megatron, he would probably be almost perfect size compared to FE Prime and so on.

    Anywho, thanks for the info

    RID is technically probably a bit better scale with Megatron, but over all FE is better to scale with everyone else and a far, far better figure. You'd be doing yourself a disservice by not waiting for FE.

    FE is better in scale with the other Autobots; PRID is better in scale with Megatron.

    The figure I'd be most dissatisfied with scale-wise is Arcee. She's only somewhat in-scale as a Cyberverse vehicle mode with FE vehicles Bumblebee and Bulkhead, and as either FE or RiD bot mode with Weaponizer Bumblebee. She really needed a scout-sized figure.

    ...not very likely that we'll see a Cyberverse Commander Arcee but that'd have win written all over it.

    I still want a voyager class Soundwave and I'd like to have a larger Megatron. I think Voyager Starscream is fantastic but throws things off a bit scale wise with the Decepticons. He looks really great next to the Autobots though. I don't mind having a tall Starscream as he is still very lanky.

    Nah, cause then she'd have 3mm fist holes. I want 5mm fists or ports somewhere on her.

    No, they could easily sell a scout-sized Arcee with a lot of little accessories(or one-two big ones?) in a deluxe rice point. Or maybe sell it in a two-pack with a deluxe in a voyager package? Or maybe pack her with articulated versions of the three kids in a deluxe package...

    But even if she would be a Cyberverse Commander, I'd totally eat that up.

    they COULD make her a VERY small deluxe packed with extras but I just don't see them doing it. Plus people would cry that the deluxes are shrinking.

    bastards.

    I use PRID Arcee for bot more scale and cyberverse for vehicle. It works pretty well.

    I realize the Airachnid figure is total crap but is the figure actually in scale with the other Decepticons and/or Autobots?

    I still think Bot Arcee should be smaller than she is.
