    Hey. I'm here to suggest that TM2 Cheetor is taller than what this otherwise immaculate chart suggests. He's not Rhinox/Silverbolt height, he's a bit taller than that. Lemme throw some screencaps down, mostly from "Crossing The Rubicron":

    Here's everyone standing around the little scanning table they had Blackarachnia in. What's important is that we note that Silverbolt is standing on a higher platform than Cheetor.

    'Cuz here they are, seemingly the same height, but only because Silverbolt is up on that ledge.

    upload_2023-11-7_23-50-3.jpeg

    Again, same height at the head, but only because Silverbolt is elevated.

    Another view of Silverbolt up on his ledge, with a taller Cheetor:

    Later in the episode, we see the Maximals welcoming TM2 Blackarachnia. Cheetor is taller than Silverbolt.

    Cheetor appears taller than Rhinox.

    A corroborating shot from Nemesis, Part 2.
    upload_2023-11-7_23-53-21.jpeg

    Here he is in Master Blaster taller than Rhinox by about half a head.

    upload_2023-11-7_23-54-2.jpeg

    and of course there's this shot from his introduction in Feral Scream 2 where he seems to match Dinobot II in height, but, like, I tend to not count first-episode appearances anyway, they like to make folks bigger for their debuts
    upload_2023-11-7_23-55-25.jpeg

    Anyway. I think TM2 Cheetor is taller than the chart shows.

    There were inconsistencies, but think the chart made up the majority of comparisons.

    Yeah I can see TM2 Cheetor being like a hair taller but not by much tbh

    Most of the full body screenshots unfortunately have him behind or in front of other characters so it's hard to assess his proper height

    The screenshots where the ground isn't visible or where they aren't in level ground don't really help tho. We've been through similar screenshots where heights don't match up whenever the full body isn't shown

    But this one is the most useful, even with Cheetor being behind Rhinox on a tilted ground it does give a good sense of Cheetor's presence

    I'll give those last S3 episodes a rewatch and see if there are any other useful full body shots like these with a level ground and make comparisons

    Are there *any* official Transformers with 1/12 scale alt modes? Vehicles, beast, weapons, whatever! I've attempted searching through the boards and have come up ... short?

    The Cassettacons maybe? Rhinox?

    Are you looking for 1/12 scale toys, or an accurate representation in canon?

    Canon isn't important for my purposes here -- I'm planning a fairly large diorama with characters from a bunch of different franchises. So I'm just looking for any TFs at all that have alt modes in 1/12 scale to match up with the other items that will be utilized. Beast alt modes would work, though I hope to stumble upon any non-animal modes that match, too! There are a couple of Primals whose beast modes are pretty close.

    I've always considered the cassette guys as 1/1 scale, since they were originally meant to represent mini-tapes.

    Kingdom Primal and Tigatron fall pretty close, assuming Primal is a bit larger than the average silverback and Tigatron is a female Bengal tiger. Cheetor might get close to it too but I don't have the figure for comparison.

    Rumor has it that MP Big Convoy is inbound. I can believe it at some point. But I hope Takara gets it right. We need to make sure Takara knows the proper scale. Big Convoy is to TM Primal as Lio Convoy is to S1 Primal. (Incidentally, BM Primal is the same height as TM Megatron. Just found that a fun fact.)

    Yeah, that looks right.

    We've done all we can to help TT out with scale, and they've been good enough to take advantage of it in the past ;)

    Right. I am just trying to signal boost it. Maybe put it out on Twitter or something.

    Wow he's smaller then I thought(not that I'd given it much) Not disputing you I'd just thought he be a lot taller then that. Mammoth and all.

    I do have a few shots where he was drawn at the exact same size as Lio and Primal. But that just didn't sit right with me. He's not really a giant. He's still shorter than Megatron, Galvatron, and Magmatron.

    Ya know from what i hear about the encore Release it seem to both scale and with the deco as a perfectly good stand in for a Masterpiece figure. Is five years enough of a time Gap?
    For this to be considered a good Idea?

    Looks like Artemis would be about... 1.4 meters, or 55 Inches. So, the size of your TV.

    Word is it might have been a misinterpretation of hints. MP Rattrap is supposedly the next BW MP. No word on an MP Big Convoy.

    That sucks, not that I mind getting a rat, but that woolly mammoth is always one of my favorites
