    In one of the trailers, Wheeljack is standing with OP, BB and Ratchet in a hanger. Wheeljack looks about half the height of BB, yet his alt mode is near enough the same size.

    Edit: Okay maybe not half BBs height, but he's still pretty small.

    Maybe because big things come in small packages? I don't know.

    This.

    Although he does look rather tall there, even for OP. Maybe it's just the angle or something.

    ...

    He doesn't look small to me AT ALL...

    Optimus is 28 feet and Bumblebee is 16 feet, maybe that helps. Also, Wheeljack looks far away to me.

    Come on, he looks small because he's the furthest into the background. It's not hard to figure out. Looking at him and Bee they'll most likely be around the same size.

    you know who looks small in this shot? Ratchet.

    the humans look bigger standing next to him than they look standing next to Bumblebee.

    It's perspective. Wheeljack is probably the same or similar height to Bumblebee. If you notice Ironhide is behind prime and looks incredibly short...

    Ey? What does height have to do with intelligence?

    He's not that far away, at least not so far away that he should look much smaller then everyone else. They're all only a few feet away from each other. I don't think perspective would affect it that much.

    He looks to be the same size as Jazz in the first movie, he's not that tiny.

    But Jazz had a smaller car for an alt mode, so that made sence.
