    Well, I've thought long and hard about giving my 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime a trailer, so I've ultimately decided to give it a shot and attempt my first custom. As the title implies, I need to know just what the scale is for MP Optimus Prime before I can go out and get the appropriate scale model truck trailer so I can customize it to work with Alternators and Binaltech figures. Any ideas?

    It has been measured many times.

    1/28 scale.

    You sure? I heard somewhere that Masterpiece Optimus Prime is supposedly in 1/18th scale.

    1/18 scale means a G.I.Joe Figure should be in perfect scale with it,
    but it's not.

    I'm sorry man, but it's not 1/18 scale.

    To put it into perspective, Alternators are 1/24 and they are more or less in scale with MP Prime. They can even fit inside the MP-04 trailer in vehicle mode.

    *looks up* Yep, Preeetttty sure . . . .

    Yeah, 1:24 - 1:28 isn't too far off, though 1:28 is significantly smaller than 1:24th. Even Human Alliance Barricade (and the rest of the HA line) is 1:25th and are a good bit smaller than Alts . . . .
