    I was wondering how strong are Micromasters? Can someone from the Battle Patrol defeat a regular size Cybertronian?

    "Regular" as in G1 Prowl and Starscream, or "Regular" as in G1 Optimus and Megatron?

    My opinion:
    -slightly less strength proportionately to Mini-Bots, like Powerglide or Gears. Not Brawn though.

    Interesting subject, I would say they have the same positives and negatives as the small monkey in timesplitters 2 in that if you hit him he's dead but being small makes them harder to hit and spot until it's too late.

    micromasters don't seem to be discussed much nowadays and their out of scale alt modes compared to regular transformers never made much sense to me as a kid. Idw early on countered this by making them human sized aliens who modified themselves with cybertronians technology introduced by nova prime and Jhiaxus and later in the continuity did some upscaled versions of the original micromaster toys

    Micromasters were the predecessors to the Maximals and Precacons. Their main reason for exisitng was to be more energy effeciant. I think that it would make sense that they wouldn't be as strong as other Cybertronians, but their endurance would be much higher.

    I'd say strong enough.

    I wouldn't mind being a micromaster as long as i can still be human with a transtector suit.
