    I was wondering if anyone knew if G1 Hot Rod's box is the exact same size as the 1984/5 Autobot car boxes. One of my friends thinks it was a bit smaller, but I don't have any boxed 1984/5 Autobot cars on-hand to check. Any help would be appreciated :)

    This old picture of part of collection would suggest that they are the same size

    As far as I can tell anyway...

    All the best

    Looks like it is. I know the "Gold Box" ones are the same size, I have original Inferno and a gold Prowl boxes and they're the exact same size. Looks like Hasbro must have used a standard box size for the cars at that point.

    I have Hot Rod's original box, as well as a number of 84/85 boxes, and they are the same.
