    There was a quote somewhere stating that Shockwave was 40 feet tall. Not sure who it came from...seems unrealistic given how he looks compared to Prime in the shot where he's punching him from the teaser.

    Well the empire magazine image makes me think SP is 5 feet taller then Optimus so being the same height as Megatron. And theTV spots make me think Shocky is 32 feet tall

    I was actually doing some calculations about that the other day. Basically, if the 1:87 scale model Rosenbauer Panther fire truck is 14 cm long, that means that (...*doing some math* ...) the final length of the actual vehicle will be ~36 feet. And using the Leader class toy, his vehicle mode is more or less the same length as his robot mode is tall (give or take). Now, there's always a chance for this to be wrong, with the toys not always having the best screen-accuracy for transformation, compared to the official CG model, etc.. I'm going out on a limb here and say that Sentinel will be 35 feet tall. Taller than Optimus. About Megatron's size. And yeah, Shockwave is reportedly 40 feet tall. Even if Shockwave's official height is different, I'm going to assume that he's more or less Megatron's size. Definitely no shrimp.

    Yeah, I know. There's a lot of "approximately"'s, "ish"'s, "more or less"'s. This is all just guesstimating. :)

    Concerning mass for transformation, how much hollow space is in a Rosenbauer Panther fire truck? I'd say Sentinel's at least a few feet taller than Optimus (so, maybe 35 feet?), given that the Panther is much bigger than a Peterbilt semi cab. But then again, despite what Orci and Kurtzman said, there has been a bit of mass shifting in the films (Frenzy's head, Starscream, RotF Devastator, possibly Ravage), so who knows.

    As for Shockwave, I'm guessing he's pretty much as tall as Optimus, give or take a foot in height.

    Shockwave was reported as 40-feet in the most recent USA Today article.
    In watching the latest BK ad of him and Prime fighting, he looks to be about the same scale as Prime and Megatron.

    Something tells me Sentinel is gonna be pretty damn tall. He's a Prime so he must be close to 40 feet.
    Not sure if this scene is in the movie, but there's a scene where Sentinel picks Megatron up by the throat and dangles him over the edge of a building.

    So he probably has a pretty big height advantage over Megatron and Optimus. It would really add to his character too and to the events that unfold as the movie progresses.
