    Finally wrapping up my favorite group of Cons, Constructicons (or rather Cons with construction-based alts; dang, that's a lot of "cons" in one sentance).

    [​IMG]
    Steamhammer (Combined): 1/115 Scale
    Gestalt Height= 776" (65')

    We've covered Steamhammer in his non-combined form before, but skipped the Drones and thus Combined mode since I wasn't particularly sure what any of them were. Went with the rather obvious solution and just assumed they were in scale with Steamhammer.
    [​IMG]
    Steamroller: 302" (25')
    [​IMG]
    Auger: 288" (24')
    [​IMG]
    Plow: 345" (29')
    [​IMG]
    Loader: 403" (34')



    [​IMG]
    Sledge: 1/96 Scale
    Toy Alt (arm extended) = 6"; Bot = 4.25"
    Backhoe Trencher (arm extended) = 576" (48')
    Robot Height = 408" (34')

    Sledge doesn't appear to be based on any real type of construction vehicle, and it's very likely the designers just gave him loads of constructiony features to make him interesting. Instead, we're basing scale upon his cab, which appears to seat only one. Granted, I don't know the typical cab width, but I'm taking an educated guess and saying ~36": 18 inches for the seat and the other 18 inches for controls/elbow room/etc.. The toy's cab is .375" wide, which gives us our scale of 96.

    Bonus:

    Throttler: 1/96 Scale
    Robot height = 216” (18’)

    Again, PCC Minicons can fit into any scale, but as Throttler has a canon partner I like seeing how big he'd be compared to Sledge.

    Deluxe Starscream

    I'm very short on time today so I'll just say straight up that he is 1/110.6 or 1/110 scale.

    I wonder, did the TFPRID Voyager Prime looks good with cyberverse Bumblebee/Cliff/other carformers? or it is better with TFP Deluxe OP? Anyone have a pict of that?

    I got some more Prime figures. Also your first posts are missing the Prime figures we've done.

    So FE Bulkhead:
    Vehicle mode is 5.75 inches long and 3.25 wide.
    Robot mode is 6.5 inches tall.

    FE Starscream:
    Vehicle mode is 5.75 inches long and 5 inches wide.
    Robot mode is 6 inches tall.

    Starscream (FE): 1/103 Scale
    Toy Alt = 5.75"; Bot = 6"
    F-16 Fighting Falcon = 593" (49')
    Robot Height = 618" (52')

    Starscream is as consistently overly tall as he is treacherous.

    Forgive the double post, but it has been a week.

    No new scales today, instead a chart featuring Starscreams across the continuities showing just how consistent he is at being taller than everyone else:

    One of these days they ought to make a Starscream that's supposed to be huge.

    Why is Megatron 27 feet?

    Shouldn't it be 18?

    RtS Megatron's height was based on RtS Legends Optimus's (as both faction leaders would be roughly the same height), which turned out to be 27".


    We've never done Cybertronian alts as there is no real sense of scale to go by, but we got official robot heights for certain RotF Decepticons so we can calculate scale from there.
    [​IMG]

    Ravage (Legends): 1/27 Scale
    Toy alt = 3.25"; bot = 4.375"
    Robot Length = 120" (10')
    Alt Mode = 88" (7')

    [​IMG]
    Pic from Seibertron
    Soundwave (RotF Deluxe): 1/53 Scale
    Toy alt* = 9.25"; bot = 5"
    Robot Height = 264" (22')
    Alt Mode* = 490" (41')
    *No clue how the alt is supposed to look, measured it from shoulder panel to leg panels like so.

    Unfortunately, Soundwave and Ravage don't match up scale-wise, at least with Soundwave's height being based on the unused idea of him turning into a pickup truck. He'd be a lot closer if he used his DotM height (16', going by the Legends), though Ravage would be somewhere around 14-15' then.
    'Course, the beauty of Cybertronian modes is that they look good together regardless.

    Megatron (RotF Voyager): 1/66 Scale
    Toy alt* = 7.375"; bot = 6.75"
    Robot Height = 444" (37')
    Alt Mode* = 487" (41')

    The Fallen (RotF Voyager): 1/60 Scale

    Alt Mode = 450" (38')

    Here is a list of some toys that were 1:1 in alt mode.

    G1 Soundwave
    G1 Browning (even in robot mode)
    Reflector
    All the G1 Cassettes
    Supposedly all the Real Gear Robots (although some like the camcorder and binoculars were maybe shrunk. The cell phone and MP3 players were 1:1).
    Armada laserbeak.

    The Car Robots bio for Fortress Maximus states he is 350 meters (1148.3 feet) tall. The toy measures 54.5 centimeters tall. This makes the scale for the toy 1:642.

    This also means that Car Robots Cerebros, whose toy is 14.5 centimeters should stand 93.1 meters (305.4 feet) tall, and Car Robots Spike, whose toy is 5.5 centimeters tall should stand 35.3 meters (115.8 feet) tall. Yes, this means Car Robots Spike is slightly bigger than movie Devastator!

    Robots in Disguise Optimus Prime is officially 6.5 meters tall in super mode according to the Car Robots Encyclopedia. This means his Leader class toy is 1/26 scale and the Titanium toy is 1/43 scale.

    suddenly I don't feel lonely anymore :D  I'm 'trying' to collect strictly 1:32 scale TF..

    What I realize shortly is that Decepticons will be far fewer

    So how do you determines what scale to collect?

    OK, let me have a shot at PRID Wheeljack


    L : 3708 / 127.0 = 1:29
    H : unknown / unknown = unknown
    W : 1750 / 063.5 = 1:27.5

    I can see that you guys/gals goes for door dimension (totally cool)
    but I normally goes for alt-mode width..

    Most of my 1:32 calculations shows
    - Length is shorter than it should
    - Width is nice
    - Height is nice

    Wow, I've been absent from this project for quite a while now haven't I. :eek: 

    Well today I decided to pick up a TF Prime Voyager RID Optimus Prime and we all know what that means:

    Prime Robots in Disguise Voyager Optimus Prime: 1/43 Scale
    Robot Height = 25 ft

    Looks like both Classics and TFP Optimus are in scale with each other.

    Any chance of doing minicon scale? Even if it's just motorcycles/skateboards/etc.

    Masterpiece Grimlock is 12" long from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail in alt mode. The largest known T. Rex was 43' long, the average appears to be 40'. That's easy math, it makes him 1/40ish.

    Of course this is all assuming one bases Grimlock on an actual T. Rex, plenty of sources suggest he was larger, so it's pretty wide open.

    I disagree that Optimus Prime and Megatron should be roughly the same height when we are readjusting character heights.

    Just because Optimus Prime stays to the same scale as a truck while in robot mode doesn't mean Megatron has to.

    Also, Legends G1 Optimus Prime is the same size as 1986 Motormaster's cab so they're in scale with each other. Which leads to Motormaster towering over Optimus Prime while in robot mode. And rightfully so I think. A cab + trailer should be bigger than a robot who is just a cab.

    I like to think that the dinosaurs are the same size as their real life counterparts. Its when we get to Ratttrap that we have to throw accurate scale out the window.

    Earlier, Ryoku told us FE Bulkhead is 3.25" wide and 5.25" Long in Vehicle mode. Wikipedia tells us this toy is based on the Renault Duster, and renault's website tells us that this vehicle is about 72" wide and 169" long. If all this information is accurate, that puts Bulkhead in a very weird position where his width is out of proportion to his length. His length in this scenario would be 1/32- pretty much as expected, but his width would be 1/22.

    I'm guessing Ryoku included the wheels in bulkhead's width, which are exaggerated in the toy, the actual Duster's wheels don't stick out. So that could add maybe a half inch, but that still puts is at 1/26ish on the width.

    Regardless I would say FE Bulkhead is an exaggeratedly wide 1/32.

    Come on boys and girls, we need more scale contributions! I would love to add some but I can't at the time and I'm sure everyone has something of value to add.
