    Hi all,
    Ok obviously no one is taller than Optomus, the closest might be Ironhide who comes up to his shoulder.

    But anyways, how tall is Sideswipe supposed to be
    In the forrest scene where the Autobots come and yell attack it is a quick shot but Sideswipe looks tiny compared to the other (unless it was someone else and I am confused)

    But then back at the military base where they take Primes body back and the military rolls in and points guns etc. Sideswipe looks just as tall as everyone else. In fact they all look the same height.

    The twins are obviously smaller than Bumblebee, how tall is bumblebee compared to the others.

    May seem like a weird question but...oh well

    jolt actually seemed a little bigger then sideswipe to me. But the sizes change alot, in the first film sometimes ironhide was at shoulder level with prime (which he should be as he's 26 ft tall), and sometimes he looked just over half the size of prime.

    Also the tallest part of the c-17 cargo bay is 20 ft and thats on a very small portion of the cargo bay, the rest is like 12-18ft. And somehow ironhide was able to stand up inside of that... therefore they will always screw up scale of these robots in some regard.

    Well, based off of the first film's size charts, here's my estimations on the sizes:

    Jetfire: 32-36 feet
    Jetpower Prime: 34-36 feet
    Optimus Prime: 28-30 feet
    Ironhide: 20-24 feet
    Ratchet: 20-24 feet
    Bumblebee: 16-18 feet
    Jolt: 14-18 feet
    Arcee, Chromia, Purple-Bike: 12-15 feet
    Sideswipe: 12-14 feet
    Skids and Mudflap: 10-12 feet
    Wheelie: 2-4 feet

    Yeah, so I didn't go for exact, but I think those are about the right ranges for the heights, especially given that they do mess with the sizes in the films.

    EDIT: And, just to round out the movie Autobots, Jazz: 11-13 feet.
