    As some of you know, I've designed the G1 and Japanese scale chart. Most of my material comes from Japan from contacts who have the production charts in order to make the most accurate chart possible!

    For YEARS there has been debate on the individual combiner bots and Skylynx! We now can close the book on that chapter! I've updated the chart if some of you want to buy it!

    Enjoy! Let the fighting stop! LOL

    I still believe each robot could adjust there sizes a bit just like BB did in his movie in the tunnel and house.

    So is Swindle a huge jeep or is Blast Off a tiny shuttle? I guess that's why they need Astrotrain. On the other hand, I always wondered how Starscream and the Combaticons could get stranded in space. Blast Off's alt mode must be a toy shuttle lol.

    I just say he's a tiny shuttle, but who knows?

    It also doesn't help that his body was made from the parts and remains of an old B-17 bomber, so even if he's a small shuttle, he should still be larger than a jeep.

    Groove was originally named Cruiser?

    Blast Off = tiny shuttle checks out.

    Arcee looks like she's Springer's child holding his hand like that. I didn't realize she was so small, wow.

    Excellent! Get this to tekering!

    It's amazing how things keep popping up. The most recent thing I found was the scale chart with Rodimus, Metroplex, Predaking and Trypticon only. It's so satisfying to finally see charts for combiner members besides the Constructicons and for Sky Lynx.

    It just occurred to me that Swindle could actually be this (functional) 400% scale replica Jeep in Dubai :)

    While knowingly aware of the scale issue suffered by this franchise, it is however an interesting find. Thank God for the variation of sizes we have for toys, that simply mean a mix of many sizes works wonderfully e.g legends with CW/UW n such

    Mass shifting. Bot mode size is in no way an indicator of alt mode size.
