    I don´t know if this is the right section to post this.

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me the scales of the TF toys.

    I only know that the Alternators are 1:24.


    Thanks in advance. :D

    Most Deluxe-sized car TFs are around 1:32 scale. But asking about scale when it comes to TFs is an exercise in futility if there ever was one. It's all over the place and never consistent, apart from the aforementioned Alternators.

    And you know it all now.

    No other line has a consistent scale. The only thing you can do is measure individual toys and determine their scale.

    Oh, I thought the all have an exact scale. How do I measure them? Well, I know how to measure them, but how will I know what scale it is.

    Like 24 cm is 1:24???

    No, just measure it and determine it's length in say, meters. Then find out the length of the corresponding real world vehicle in meters. Divide that number by the first number, and that will give you X. The scale is then 1:X.

    Easy test with that (we'll use G1)... sit any one of the mini-spies - like Huffer or Pipes - next to Optimus Prime.

    See something wrong there? ;)

    some TFs are even out of scale with themselves. 20th anniverary prime is a great example of that. nothing on his vehicle mode is the right size compared to anything else on his vehicle mode.
