    I'll send you a pm.

    That's fair. I don't think Sunbow had anything to do with Headmasters though. And that's my concern honestly/reason for mentioning it. I think Sunbow itself was only involved with the western/Marvel portion of the franchise. So if you're going by The Headmasters' scale, it'd be wrong to call it the definitive Sunbow scale rather than merely the definitive Japanese scale thread. Rebirth and Headmasters are very different as you point out, so I bring up that inconsistency as for why, I think, the Headmasters scale for nebulans shouldn't be used in a topic about Sunbow scale which would accurately show Rebirth scale as it's the US side. I was only thinking about the actual topic title. Officially yes that's the only scale chart we have for those characters as no Rebirth charts have been made to my knowledge.

    Damn, you're right. I probably should omit the Headmaster characters entirely, then... since I can't change the thread title. :redface2: 

    My apologies; being a Transformers fan named Remy, I assumed you must be TFKenkon. I have a bad habit of jumping to conclusions like that. :dunce 



    You must be that Headmaster mouse from Ratatouille, then. :p

    To be totally honest, I don't think Optimus should be proportionally bigger than most of the other Autobots. I mean, he's not as bulky as some of the other Optimuses like RiD or AEC.

    Episode two is kinda dull but the first and third had some great action moments. The writing, voicing and music is also good throughout, unlike in Headmasters.

    It's important to remember that this scale is from the various scale guides that Sunbow issued to the animation teams. What they drew instead (sometimes because a writer disregarded scale issues for the sake of the story) is an altogether different story.

    The Optimus is really n feet tall thing typically comes from individuals taking into account the dimensions of an actual Kenworth trailer. Of course, this argument is only going to be settled when this guy is done with his Optimus Prime.

    Well done op.It looks like this chart will be appreciated more here than the Sunbow animators ever did.

    Thanks for posting the link, it's very helpful. Was looking for some scale chart similar to this, not to long ago. Have to admit though, I had no idea that Skyfire was half the height of Omega Supreme.

    I apologize for reviving an old thread but I thought this would be a good place to ask my scale questions.

    There are no combiner leaders on the scale chart except Razorclaw who is about a half-a-head short of being voyager size- would you make the the other combiner leaders as tall as Razorclaw?

    There are no individual scramble city limb-bots on the scale chart but where do you imagine they would fit height-wise? I'm going with deluxe carbon size. Opinions?

    How big do you think a scramble city type of combiner would be on the scale chart? I was thinking the same height as Devastator, or maybe a head shorter. Thoughts?

    I'm using the scale chart for my art project (see my signature) and I'm trying to figure out the best way to scale some of the characters that didn't get included in it. Thanks for your helps!
