    People are always complaining about figures getting smaller, particularly deluxes, but what figures can be a yardstick for how large they can be? I don't have a huge collection but from what I can personally observe:
    Deluxe: Generations Drift
    Voyager: Classics Jetfire

    Lockdown is tall, but he's not large. Not by any stretch. Even some larger Deluxes like Jazz and the Classics Lamborghinis have a bit of hollow spaces within their frames (namely the legs on both and Jazz's chest).

    Then there's a large Deluxe in Cybertron Hot Shot/Exillion who is big, but also doesn't have the complexity that most other Deluxes have, even within the Cybertron line. And his legs are also hollow to accommodate the sliding legs.

    Overall, discrepancies in size within a size class is moot, because the overall plastic weight used in the figure is going to be roughly the same. Tall figures will be lanky or hollow, where shorter figures will have a bit more "meat" to them.

    I can say that the smallest Cyberverse action set is Shockwave's. Piece of shit. And the largest is probably Bumblebunker or Optitrailer. Piece of shit.

    No kidding. He may not be bulky, but Animated Lockdown is a heck of a deluxe fig and stands as tall as a lot of voyagers. Taller than some even.

    I actually think you win this thread by only using Animated. The animated guys were huge. Voyager Shockwave is about as tall as some Energon Gestalts.

    At scout size, I'd pick RoTF Ransack or his Red Baron repaint. He's incredibly tall. If I still had mine I'd put him next to PRID: Cliffy. I bet he's about as tall. You could probably find an Animated Activator tht size though.
