Toy Scales Illustrated

(Original Source: Toy scales illustrated - TFArchive)

I've been meaning to do this for a while, but didn't get around to getting a tripod until the other day. Figuring out which toys are in scale with each other is intriguing to me, but it's not something I've seen listed or noted much elsewhere. I tried to start including the scales I could work out with the reviews of the first movie's toys, but really had no interest when RotF came around.

Leader Starscream has me excited about this again though, as he should in roughly the same scale as Masterpiece Starscream, movie Wreckage, Bonecrusher, deluxe Brawl, and the Legends class cars. In anticipation of that, I've put the numbers to paper (or forum post) of [some of] the figures I could find specs for. Then, using the tripod to keep the camera in the same position, I can convert the images with a little math and get robots that are properly sized to each other.

Here's an image showing how to do it with a couple of given scales:





[B]And here's the resulting collage:

I didn't do many of the cars since they're all more or less the same size. It's mostly movie toys, but I threw in a couple of others that I could work out for fun.

The trickiest part is that not all of the vehicles are perfect scale models (for instance, I didn't even bother with Starscream's first voyager toy). I mostly used a rough average of height and width scales, but some dimensions are more accurate than others (Bonecrusher's width is probably in better ratio to the Buffalo than his length, for example).

Here are all the numbers, for the lolz:
