    ok, in transformers animated, the hight of soundwave is a strange matter, he is generally considered short due to both the

    1.appearence of his vehicle mode
    2.hasbro's legendary inaccurate toys, a mean come on, what is the matter with them and show accuracy, the favorite characters are the only ones they make big.

    anyway, despite these making him appear very small, as shown in soundwave's debute episode, he is roughly the size of bulkhead if not a little taller. this would put him at about starscream's shoulder's or neck if he was with the other decepticons.

    sound about right, it just always bugged me that he was portrayed so puny by the toys and stuff.

    If I remember correctly, Bulkhead was taller than Starscream, and soundwave was not as big as Bulkhead in the cartoon. I believe Soundwave was up to Megatron's shoulders making him a little shorter than Starscream actually

    bulkhead wasn't taller then starscream, most decepticons were larger then autobots, and your height description is about the same as mine but worded different

    You just answered your own question.

    AA has an actual size chart, and barring animation errors, Soundwave is about a head shorter than Optimus, and comes up to below Megatron's waist. Which actually puts his deluxe in scale with leader Megatron.

    Also Starscream is far taller than Bulkhead. Bulkhead comes up to about his chest, and Soundwave up to SS's midsection.

    I thought Optimus came up to his upper chest. I think Bulkhead goes up to his neck area.

    Nope. Ops comes to the top of the lower canopy section on Starscream's chest. Bulkhead reaches the upper section.

    I could have sworn I saw some shots where Optimus came up to around the top of his cockpit.

    Those would technically be errors, then. I'm going off the included size chart in the Allspark Almanac .

    To be fair, size charts can be wrong. Especially Movieverse ones which try to say that Movie Starscream is like a head taller than Prime. And that Megatron's bigger than Blackout/Grindor.

    But this one isn't. It's an officially released one that was for a TV series that's since ended. Movie scale charts are often WIPs that serve as a guideline during production, which often changes. They explain quite clearly it is the reference chart for the TV show. It's not wrong.

    I'm not sure what there is to contest.

    Based on his alt mode, I'd say that Animated Soundwave is around Ratchet's height. That is to say, a tad shorter than Optimus.

    I will conceded once something better is offered, but there is just no way SS is bigger than Bulkhead, let alone many stories higher than him as it is being said.

    The one in the allspark almanac II IS OFFICIAL. You can't get more accurate than that. And bulkhead is shorter than Starscream

    Accually, Grindor is taller than Megatron. There's an odd size difference between Blackout and Grindor.

    Buy the book. Starscream is absolutely taller. I don't see how this is even a question. This is not opion or conjecture, it's fact.
