    Alright, fellow nerds!

    IT'S DONE! The scale chart from Headmasters to Battlestars is complete! It has taken WEEKS of finding source material charts from Japan, Watching all 3 series carefully, PLUS ZONE, AND going through the Battlestar series on the height of some characters and it was NOT easy!

    The oddest height out of ALL OF THEM WAS KING POSEIDON! HE IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL COMBINER SIZE!

    Some of these you might find surprising, some not! But MAKE NO MISTAKE, This is as accurate as it gets!

    Before some of you ask, yes there was/is a size chart in Japan of most of these characters. I have gone through the original chart (G1, yes I got scans of them) and correlated those finding with a couple of the one I found from the Japanese series.

    Got a question, I'll try to answer it. Like it? If a print is good I will be selling a poster!

    This really just highlights something I noticed as I watched the shows. In the first season (and I think the second), they had significant size differences, and that was okay. Once you hit the movie, though, they start making everyone pretty much the same size. Then they wanted some characters to be bigger than others and there ended up being size drift. It's just interesting to see it laid out like this.

    Do you have this available in any other large sizes (like the Sunbow scale chart just like this one) or are you keeping that one to yourself? I'd love to have a super stupid high res version to go along with the other one.

    Wait, have people claimed otherwise? I'd always thought Cyclonus was a bit taller than Galvatron going off of the cartoon.

    I'm surprised that Raiden is taller/bigger than Fort Max. I guess I never really noticed that Raiden was that big or how big some of the later bots got for that matter.

    That's actually Grand Maximus, who was around the size of a Combiner and Fort Max's little brother.

    Ah. I was wondering. Now some of the other sizes make more sense as well. Great chart since I somehow forgot to mention it in my first post. :D
