    Time to bring up that infamous scale chart again!

    [​IMG]

    They were basing the designs off of a scale chart so using this, we can see the scale for all of the characters were roughly based off of this (well, besides for Blackout because Hasbro decided to go with Grindor's scale for some reason). The papers say Megatron is 35 feet and Prime is 28 feet so I feel like they appropriately got the 7 feet difference down in toy form.

    I saw this the other day and threw in the mandatory "why didn't you do repaint berserker into SS crankcase" question.

    Yeah, Megatron towers over Prime. Think about it this way, Optimus turns into the front of a semi and (DOTM) Megatron turns into the semi AND the trailer. I think Optimus and Galvatron were closer in height.

    nah, last I checked nothing. Maybe later. Hell, if there's a response I'm sure it'll go up in this thread (I'm sure it's a burning question for many people) before I can even check my instagram feed :D

    Well if you find an answer please bring it back here. This is some serious confusion.

    SS Blackout is absolutely not the size of Grindor. If that were the case, Megatron would only come up to Blackout's elbow. I do not know where they went wrong with this. Starscream and Blackout look fine together, but Megatron and Blackout are not correct. SS Megatron stands in between Blackout's head and his rotor base.

    I had to double check but you're right; Grindor is insanely tall.

    [​IMG]

    No idea where that scale for Blackout came from. I guess it was fueled by the demand for a Leader class Blackout and easily being able to repaint this into Grindor since he'd be "tall enough". It seems like a good middle ground between the two.

    So with these, that takes away 4 out of 11 deluxes for 2019. And we still have 4 to 5 rumored. Which leaves 2 to 3 a mystery.

    That proves we are getting Jetfire and Galvatron. :) 

    What other options are there? More Crowbars, Bees, and no-name repaints? :eek:

    Plus whatever exclusives we may get in 2019 that haven't been revealed yet, we saw in 2018 how those can cause the series numbering to skip around, at least for the Hasbro releases.

    It doesn't really prove anything all it does is acknowledge the fact people are wondering about galvatron and jetfire. The latter just happens to have a new leader class listing I just dont see a leader class megatron and a voyager class galvatron in the same year for studio series.
