    I was told not to read regular wiki on g1 stuff, but I did and saw still that it explains scorponok as 2nd biggest tf toy ever.

    First of all he is not even biggest g1 decepticon, overlord is. So what are the CURRENT top 5 biggest toys (counting all generations).

    Yes I know fort max will be # 1 (tallest tf toy ever).

    So ???

    1) Fort Max
    2) Deluxe Bumblebee ???
    3) Deluxe Starscream
    4) Deluxe Devastator
    5) Overlord

    I believe that's for Generation 1 toys, not for all toys. Also it's a case of "big" VS "tall".

    For Generation 1, yes Scorponok is a little bit shorter but has considerably more mass to him. Overlord was not a US release. So Scorponok is technically the second biggest either from a US centric view or a view based on bulk and mass as well as height.


    As far as toys of all time goes, there's loads of Supreme Classes to consider. Supreme Cheetor from Beast Machines for example. Probably the second tallest. Cybertron Supreme Starscream, RotF Supreme Devastator, Animated Roll Out Command Optimus Prime?

    There's a wealth of Supreme Class toys that are truly massive from the first half of the noughties. Those will be the ones to make up the rest of your list.

    Aren't Unicron and Primus only a head or two smaller than MP Prime?

    wat?

    I think Driftx3 has given an unordered list of some toys larger than Scorps, and is not stating there are larger toys than 'Maximus.

    Unicron's taller. He's about 14", to MP Prime's 12". Primus is a bit closer in height. Shorter than Unicron, anyways.

    As pointed out above, someone needs to clarify "biggest". Does that mean tallest, widest, largest volume displacement, or heaviest/most massive?

    I imagine there will never be a mass released Transformer more massive than the original Fortress Maximus - The Japanese release in particular with the giant sword.

    Supreme Cheetor may be tall, but it's a twig. The toy to fear falling off the shelf and landing on your foot is Max!

    Where does Nightscream fit in, for the smallest character in BM he did get the second biggest figure lol. I think he ranks at least in the top 10 of all time.

    pretty sure the 4 biggest are Fort Max, Supreme Cheetor, Victory Saber (if combiners count?), and Overlord, in that order

    Nah, can't speak to Sky Lynx, but I've had Omega and Scorpy next to each other on the shelf before, and Scorpy is a good head and shoulders taller. FWIW, Omega and Predaking are pretty close in size, both in bulk and height. I usually have those guys square off against each other, since G1 Devastator is significantly smaller than Omega.

    Is there some ultra collector (or collectors) out there who can post pics of all the largest G1 figures lined up for size comparison, like the combiners, Sky Lynx, Omega Supreme, the 4 fortress TFs, Jetfire, some of the city commanders for scale, and then do the same for the largest bunch of each line thru the present? And then take the largest ones from each TF line and put them all in 1 group shot?

    That would settle all size debates.

    Of course, gathering physical stats on each would be helpful, height in robot & vehicle mode, length in vehicle/beast mode, and weight.
