    I seem to not be able to find any source from Dreamworks for the official heights of the movie Transformers. Can anyone help me out?

    Huh, I thought that Blackout was the tallest...

    No info on Bonecrusher's and Brawl's height though?

    Ya I also heard in a few places that "Blackout is the only transformer bigger than Megatron". Also, what about Brawl and Bonecrusher?

    They changed it.

    The video game strategy guide AND the Visual Guide has Blackout at 33' tall and Megatron at 35'. They didn't have the sizes for Bonecrusher and Brawl.

    I heard that Bonecrusher and Brawl were 25' tall. But I don't know the source of that info.

    What is the status on any kind of art/the macking off/fact book for the movie? I know we're getting all kinds of movie merch, but I can't find the info I've been looking for on good solid supplemental stuff.

    I'd love a G1 style line up of all our bots and cons, clearly showing their heights. I need some high quality robot pictures, period.

    This doesn't seem right...I highly doubt Starscream is taller than Optimus.

    I saw the Official Transformers Movie Guide Book in Borders and MPH a few days ago. Might want to check out your local book stores?

    They even have "I can read" with Barricade. :lol

    To be fair, since Bay said that there would not be any size-changing, this makes sense if you look at an F22 compared to a Peterbilt cab.

    Ratchet - 20'
    Bumblebee - 16'

    Blackout - 33'
    Scorponok - 9'
    Starscream - 31'
    Bonecrusher - 25'

    During filming, Bay said:

    Optimus - 28'.
    Megatron - 34'.
    Ironhide - 26'.
    Ratchet - 24'.
    Bumblebee - 17'.
    Jazz - 13'.

    The writers also said Blackout was the biggest, though that doesn't mean he's the tallest. I'm sure this all changed once ILM completed the special effects.

    Blackout's rotor up on his back makes him appear much taller. I guess they're going by head height.

    FRENZY = 'short arse'
    BUMBLEBEE = 'big'
    IRONHIDE = 'bigger'
    OPTIMUS PRIME = 'bloody huge'
    MEGATRON = 'fecking ginormous'

    with the rest being variations thereof. That's good enough for me...

    Seriously, it's amazing how many of them make BB "30 feet tall", and some of the others up to 50'!! I don't even think the cartoon G1 mechs were that friggin big - and they seemed to be about on par w/ the movie heights (2my recollection).

    There's just something exciting about women talking about size, hehe.

    But uh, yeah, I thought I read that Optimus ended up being over 30 feet tall as well.
