    Transformers figures are never in scale with each other.

    Scale does not exist in this world!

    Although one could use WST Transformers along with other figures to represent scale.

    In scale to what? Technically, My WST Megatron is in scale with my MP04 Prime.
    WST Blaster and Soundwave could be considered in scale with Alternators.
    Alternators are probably in scale with MP Prime, give or take a few inches.

    MP Optimus Prime isn't even in scale with MP Optimus Prime. Look at his vehicle mode details and proportions. They're all screwy.

    That's basically what I said.
    But thanks to mass-shifting, that changes things.

    Nope.

    Only Alternators are in scale with each other. That's it. Really.

    Oh, and Alternity. Alternity figures are in scale with each other.

    Which Gundam? There isn't a set size across all mobile suits. They're all over the place.

    From a realistic, non mass-shifty standpoint, Optimus Prime is much smaller than the average Gundam. I don't even think half the size. Movie Optimus Prime is supposed to be ~28 feet tall, or about 8.5 metres, and he's a much bigger truck, with a transformation designed to squeeze a good chunk of height out of that frame. G1 Prime would be significantly shorter. The average Gundam is 18m tall, the smallest being about 15.5m.

    Doesn't stop him from being drawn the size of a Gundam, though.
