In a real world setting who is bigger, METROPLEX or FORTRESS MAXIMUS?
If you figure that the Spike toy is a little bigger than a human, and transforms into a standard sized (like, Optimus Prime sized) head for Cerebros, who then turns into Fort Max's head, then Metroplex is bigger. But really, there is fiction for either side of the coin. I personally like Metroplex being bigger, I just wish Hasbro would make a Metroplex that was bigger than the Fort Max toy they made.
Supposedly (in terms of concept), Fortress Maximus, by a wide margin, though in most comic and animated appearances, Metroplex, as Maximus isn't much bigger than the average Autobot. In RiD, he's about the same size?
That is not what i meant, If Metroplex and Fortress Maximus were standing outside your house who would be bigger?
Depends on the continuity.
Metroplex can be seen to be part of Autobot City. So if you count the entire city, then you could say he's bigger. But standing on their own, Fort Max is supposed to be much bigger.
Fort Max isn't that big in the Marvel Comics because Budiansky and the artists botched the depiction. They make it seem like Spike becomes Max's head instead of becoming Cerebros' head which then becomes Max's head. And obviously there is a bunch of mass-shifting going on, but Fort Max is a giant Fortress that all the Autobots can live in. He's not just another random Autobot that happens to be a couple heads taller than the others. Same with Scorponok. The way they have him in the Marvel Comics, he's barely (if at all) taller than Powermaster Optimus. BZZZZZT-- wrong.
how tall are they in feet
Again, varies widely depending on what series, and even within the same series.
Not such a simple question after all, is it?
Wrong? Or just a different interpretation?
It's not a simple question. Max and Metroplex vary greatly in the different continuities.
In the Marvel Comics, Metroplex is enormous and Maximus isn't much larger than Powermaster Prime.
Metroplex is giant compared to a regular transformer (Wheelie barely in the picture and the normal Autobot car sized Chromedome) and dwarfs even combiners (Pictured is train combiner Raiden). But what's that behind him?
Maximus' foot and lower shin.
I personally prefer Metroplex being bigger. What about Trypticon? Or Scorpinok? I wonder how they compare.
There is no "right" answer, because these are both characters who have received different treatment in the various versions of Transformers. There is no one "right" version of Transformers (though some are dumber than others ).
In the Japanese Headmasters cartoon, as we've seen above, Fort Max is HUUUUUUUUGE.
In Marvel and IDW comics, he's just a very large "normal" Transformer (a few heads taller than Optimus... as is Scorponok). I have to admit, I've come to prefer this version, since I never liked the idea of "city-formers"... and we were getting a lot of those in the late 1980's. One on each side is enough, thanks.
simple question in transformers, no such thing!!
I love the use of bold font in order to help get the point across.
The text-based form of talking slower and louder to someone who doesn't understand your language.
According to the official Car Robots guide, Brave Max was 1476 feet/450 meters tall. Judging by their cartoon appearances I'd say Fort and Brave have the same height. The picture above is from one of the official japanese guides, so if you take that as a rule then Metroplex would be 1/4 of Fort Max's height = 112.5 meters/369 ft tall.
