    I don't have a ruler, but I think it's exactly 30 cm when I measured it.

    Someone should take some pics of the evolution of leader/voyager/deluxe scales. And prices. I'm pretty sure the bigger Starscream was cheaper than the smaller Blackout...

    Dont have pics now, but overall prices were the same up until TLK. Since '07, Deluxes were around $12-$15, Voyagers $20-$23 and leaders were $40-$45 (at least in Illinois).

    Movie 2 leaders were about a head+ taller than the 1st movie leaders. Deluxes and Voyagers were mainly reused from movie 1 to movie 2 (I consider HFTD line as an extention of ROTF line).

    Movie 3 was when we saw the same price tag, but overall reduction in material used on the figures in all sizes, apart from maybe sentinel prime, being just about as tall as ROTF Prime/Megs and HFTD Screamer. You could see the figures were getting smaller but not by much.

    Movie 4 still kept the overall price tags across the 3 size classes, but the size difference in the leader class was very noticeably smaller. AOE prime and Grimlock were probably movie 1 sized leaders but without the electronics and mech-alive gimmicks. In essence you were spending the same for less.

    Movie 5 in my opinion was the biggest joke because the prices now spiked. Deluxes were close to voyager prices, and voyagers were at the $30 mark. The leaders were up to $45-$50 range, and they were basically large voyager figures.

    The studio series line kept the same price tags as TLK but that "leader" Blackout is a joke. ROTF the Fallen and Stratosphere are taller and they were tall voyagers.

    Then there’s Lockdown and Wheelie. Both are deluxes who turn into freakin giants. In fact I think I saw a photo somewhere showing Lockdown to be even taller than TF and Stratosphere.

    Their price, inflation aside? 10 dollars less than a tiny SS-18 Beetlebee. What a sick joke.

    I believe once we have the OS KO of Blackout, we have a better scaled one compared to Screamer and the Studio Series ones.
