    5 1/4" Long

    2 1/8" Wide

    2 1/2" Tall (from bottom of tire to top of smoke stacks)


    Edit:
    These are the actual measurements of the toy. I don't know if that translates to 1/32 scale or not.

    On that note, I would gladly spend another 10 if it had the trailer.

    There's 2 versions: 1/32 (small) which are out now and i think they'll release the 1:24 (big) versions later.

    Found 1 at Walmart here in Southern California. They had one in a case of seemingly 6 - 2x Bayverse Movie OP, 1x Bayverse Bumblebee, 2x Ghostbusters Ecto-1, and 1x G1 Optimus.

    I found one today in Arlington TX. I was going to open for my work desk but the packaging is very cool. But for anyone who opened...the stacks raise up right? The pic on back of box shows tall stacks.

    Does the trailer hitch on the new die cast toy actually fit the G1 trailer? Or do you have it balanced on top?
