    Random question, but I was watching the "No Prisoners, Only Trophies" scene and it looks like Soundwave is slightly taller than Bumblebee (not by a lot, mind). I was wondering if anybody agrees with that or if I'm just seeing things incorrectly.


    Thanks for taking time to respond.

    By a little yeah, but there's really not enough of a difference to matter, kinda like Optimus and Megatron.

    Yeah, in the movie it seemed like it was maybe 1 or 2 feet, and he had a lot more bulk to his upper torso than Bee did. Thanks, though.

    Right around Bumblebee's height - give or take 1-2 feet - would probably be accurate, seeing how both of them turn into sportscars.

    I thought he was almost Ironhide's height.

    He's pretty short. Look at the scene when he's with Megs and SS in Africa. He only comes up to about Megatron's waist IIRC.

    In his ROTF concept art, he would've been around his height. Especially knowing he was originally gonna transform into a Chevy Silverado.

    Yeah, DotM Soundwave is roughly 'Bee's size. Makes sense. They're both sports cars, so they're in that Dino/Sideswipe/Barricade/Sideways range. Probably around 16-17 feet. Maybe pushing 18.

    Which would be around 15-20 feet, a la Dino/Bumblebee/Barricade. Short compared to characters like Optimus, Megatron, Sentinel, etc.. But still not something that I'd like to have fall on me. ;)

    Thanks for all of the replies. I was trying to get some opinions so I could decided whether to get the Deluxe DOTM Soundwave or the HA one for my collection since I try to get them close to scale (WHAT A RIDICULOUS GOAL). The HA is a little big, but it doesn't seem to bother me as much as the tinyness of the Deluxe (especially since my Bumblebee is the HftD deluxe).

    According to concept art, Bumblebee is 16ft tall, so I'd say Soundwave is about 17/18 feet in height

    What I want to know is: if Soundwave was huge satellite in ROTF, how did he become a tiny car? I mean it would have made sense if he was an armored truck or a bus... but a car? Come on

    He's should be almost as big as Demolishor (without the wheels height) but he's smaller than Megatron

    Satellites vary in size. Some can be as small as an ordinary car.
