    Imagine if the Transformers toy's were to scale with each other. Some would be really huge, others would be really tiny!
    I suppose a Masterpiece Prime would be too scale with a WST Soundwave? Grimlock would be more like Trypticon, and Trypitcon would be, YIKES!

    Could you imagine ROTF Stratosphere if he was in scale with Leader Optimus Prime? You'd need a car loan to buy him.

    Good example would be the Optimus Prime Masterpiece with his little hand-held version of Megatron that comes with the kit. Except the problem is as they transform, Megatron is now as big as Prime in bot mode!

    Alt modes are secondary to me. I care about the robots being sized up appropriately (talking more non-movie here).

    But naturally, characters like Metroplex, Trypticon, and Fort Max have to be sized down for the sake of selling a toy. I'm fine with them being generally larger than everything else (Leaders, Supremes...).

    I'm always going on about wanting more G1 characters (not just minibots) as legends as they are a better match to basebots than WST's which are probably a little small.

    Just try out Jazz, Hound, Rodumus or the others with something like Metroplex you'll see what I mean.

    Guy's, I'm just imagining what the toy's would be like if they were to scale with in relationship to eachother. The city-bot's would be OUR size! Five or six feet tall! That's a big freaking bot! Imagine trying to transform something that big!
    I'm sure some of you have seen the full scale Terminator figures and heads and what not. So why not have a Transformer human size?
    I'm not talking seriously here, just imagining things for fun. Obviously, a 6-foot Metroplex would be very costly and the "average" collector couldn't afford it.

    I have a idiotic idea... they could sell something like Transformers storage boxes for minicons or the like and each one would be a storage case or similar - but it would also be one part of a limb like a forearm or a shin area... etc...

    You could build them all up and build a bot out of them. a semi-hollow ABs case couldn't be that hard to make.

    I doubt it would be practical or safe to make it as big as 6 foot tall but maybe 4 foot ?

    I always wished they kept everything in scale with the Diaclone cars. Especially the Stunticons.

    If ROTF Stratosphere was in scale with ROTF Prime, than, DAMN.

    The Autobot cars + Seekers were in a different Diaclone line than the combiners and City-bots though. They were just thrown together by Hasbro for Transformers.

    Insecticons would be nearly microscopic! LOL!
    I think it would be possible for sure to have the Autobot cars and seeker jets of same scale.

    Give me a transforming Unicron to scale with standard deluxe and Voyager figures, and then we'll talk.

    I'm sure that would feasibly sell well.

    Good grief! Unicron? If the City-bot's were our size, I can't imagine how big Unicron would be to scale! LOL!
    50-foot tall toy?

    It would take alot of people to transform Unicron and Primus.
