    Anyone know the height on Cyb Menasor offhand?
    I might be using this mold for a custom, and unsure on the total height.

    Thanks!

    About 8.5 inches. I think he might be the tallest Ultra, though I haven't checked him against Silverbolt.

    That's it? I need a base to build a G1 style Omega Supreme from...at 8.5" I'm leaning towards Metroplex. Are you sure? he looks a lot bigger.

    8.5 from head to toe. So yeah, go with Metroplex, who tops out at 13.5".

    you know, the whole reason I went with the "Brute" mode of Metroplex for my Omega Supreme is because if you use the full height, what're ya gonna do for a Fort Max?

    I actually have a fort max already done awaiting the decal application, I wanted to go with cyb menasor, but he's way too small per the commission request, so I guess I am going with Metroplex.

    I'll try to give mine an original spin even though you used the same base on your ';)

    Yeeeeaaah. Between Menasor and Metroplex (whose basically the size of Unicron) I'd go with the Plex.
