    I have been collecting for a while but I haven't really paid much attention to the different classes just buying what I wanted and now that I'm older and starting to really get into this I noticed that there are several official sizes and it's starting to make me wonder which sizes are bigger/smaller than others.. So from what I have seen and put together my self they are as follows:

    Code:
    $3	Legends
    $4	Legends
    $5	Basic /	Mini-Cons / Legends / Legion
    $7	Basic / Mini-Con / Basic / Energon / Scout
    $8	Activators / Scout / Commander
    $10	Deluxe / Super-Con / Combat / HA Basic / Revealer
    $13	Deluxe
    $15	Mega / Action Set
    $20	Ultra / Max-Con / Mega Combat / Mega / Voyager / Powerizer
    $22	Voyager
    $25	Giga-Con / Commanders / Command / Ultra
    $30	Super / Human Alliance / Weaponizer
    $40	Supreme / Super-Base / Leaders
    $45	Leader
    $50	Unicron / Supreme
    $90	Ultimate
    $100	Supreme Combiner
    $1xx    Titan
    
    Code:
    [B]Cyberverse:[/B]
    Legions / Legends
    Commanders
    
    [B]Beast Era:[/B]
    Basic
    Deluxe
    Mega
    Ultra
    Super
    
    [B]Standard:[/B]
    Scout
    Deluxe / Revealer
    Voyager / Powerizer
    Ultra
    Leader / Weaponizer?
    Supreme
    Titan
    I know I am not correct on some of them so I would like for you guys to correct me please. I'm really not sure where Legends goes but from the very few posts I've seen people mentioning them I believe they are the smallest.

    I also know not all lines have all the different sizes but, it's more of a in general then specific to one line.

    Am I missing any? What do I have wrong? Are some the same size? Which ones have I missed if they are?

    EDITED: updated so far from feedback.

    I **think** weaponizers are leaders. Wow though, that's a lot of size classes.

    Legends\Legions\Cyberverse are different names for the same size class.
    Cyberverse commander is a tad bigger.

    Scouts and Basics are also the same size class. They're mostly discontinued these days.

    Deluxe\Revealer comes next. I think during armada the class was called supercon?

    Human Alliance is all over the place, better not try to place it between lines. And most [if not all] of them are larger than voyagers.

    Voyagers were called Mega a while back, and also have the name powerizers right now.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but there hasn't been a new ULTRA since the three moulds in Universe back in 2008. And before that, 2005 with Cybertron. It's mostly a voyager with electronics.

    Leaders\Weaponizers come next. Called weaponizers in RID because they're supposed to reveal gattling gun weapons in both modes.

    Supreme and Ultimate are next. Unicron is a Supreme, Primus, Starscream in Cybertron and *maybe* ROTF's Devastator.

    Ultimate is the biggest and most expensive size class, debuting with the Winged Optimus Prime in DOTM. Or it may have been a switch of names for the Supreme class, not sure.

    Looking at the box for devastator he's a combiner class

    I've edited first post for the feed back..

    Not sure where to put combiner so I put it with "other" and added Mega

    I know the last Ultra I bought was from RiD.. lol

    But to me they are about the same size as the Voyagers.

    The issue also gets more complicated with the shrinking robots trend. Deluxe/Revealer is slowly approaching the size of the old Scout class

    I don't think Cyberverse is a class size. It's more of a subline that denotes TF toys at a smaller scale, namely the Legion-class and the Commander-class.

    BW Optimal Optimus - super class
    Also, BW had mega class
    Then there were minicons, Supercons, maxcons, gigacons & Super base in armada
    Energon had combat, mega combat & Commanders
    And lastly there are Activators for Animated...think those are the ones you left out.

    There's no such thing as "Powerizer", "Revealer", or "Weaponizer" class. I challenge anyone to show where it says it on the packaging. These descriptions are confusing and need to stop being used.

    I know officially there are not, but when you see it written on all the packaging/stickers in the store it's hard not to acknowledge them.. esp when people around refer to them as well.

    No it isn't.

    More than anything, it's returning to the old Deluxe standard set by Beast Wars/Beast Machines/Robots in Disguise, rather than the bloated figures we were seeing around Armada (especially Armada), Energon, and Cybertron.

    Well, we need to stop acknowledging it. The last thing we need to do are to further misconceptions. This fandom has enough as it is.

    Actually, TFTM\Animated\ROTF had some nicely sized deluxe class figures as well. Not to mention Universe and Generations. RID Soundwave looks and weights like a gum when compared to Generations Wheeljack\Jazz\Soundwave.

    While it appears to be part of his name and not necessarily a size class, "Weaponizer" does appear on the packaging:

    True, how true..

    So Weaponizer is more like cyberverse as it's a type of line not the class...

    Folks need to stop FRAGING over names and titles. It's not that big a deal, sheesh.

    Anyway, it was my understanding that the Weaponizers are actually Ultra-sized, not Leader, given that their price point is more where an Ultra should be (around $30-35) and not a Leader ($40-45). In which case, I seriously hope that they make a Weaponizer Megatron that's more in scale with FE Voyager Optimus but I doubt it given OP and BB are Hasbro's go-to Bots for anything big these days.

    I guess Combiner class is the size above Ultimate.

    Don't forget that Armada had some funny names for the size classes like Maxcon, Gigacon, Supercon.

    Something's are released outside the size classes such as Masterpiece as a size might be a bit variable. such as Energon Wingsaber isn't really a Voyager he was just crammed into a Voyager box.

    I'm guessing Weaponisers are only a little smaller than a typical leader and a bit bigger than say Universe Onslaught as they are quite simple. But thinking of them as like an Armada Gigacon probably isn't far off.

    But remember a Beast Wars Mega is the same sort of size as a modern Voyager but the previous Voyagers are more like the size of an early Beast Wars Ultra. and Beast Machines Ultra are huge.

    I don't know what you'd call the sub-basic size that is typified by G2 Cyberjets and Cyberverse Commanders though if taken as a total - I just call them Sub-basics personally.

    Powercore Combiners also used the term 'Commander' too before Cyberverse did.

    P.s.

    That's the 1st time I've noticed that specific description of Mech-Alive on Devastator's box.

    I'm not Fraggin, I'm trying to figure out when someone says it's a XXX size, I know which size it is...

    And I finally found a page that details the differences

    Here

    In short it looks like this...

    Code:
    $3	Legends of Cybertron
    $4	Legends
    $5	Basic /	Mini-Cons / Legends / Legion
    $7	Basic / Mini-Con / Basic / Energon / Scout
    $8	Activators / Scout / Commander
    $10	Deluxe / Super-Con / Combat / HA Basic
    $13	Deluxe
    $15	Mega / Action Set
    $20	Ultra / Max-Con	/ Mega Combat / Mega / Voyager
    $22	Voyager
    $25	Giga-Con / Commanders / Command / Ultra
    $30	Super / Human Alliance
    $40	Supreme	/ Super-Base / Leaders
    $45	Leader
    $50	Unicron	/ Supreme
    $90	Ultimate
    $100	Supreme Combiner

    I've been looking for something like that. With so many sizes, I just couldn't keep up. All it needs now is a 3rd column showing their height size comparison whether from feet to head or feet to the highest point.

    Not sure about "Powerizer" and "Weaponizer", but I do have one that says "Revealers":
