So, random question I thought of randomly, how big actually is the Great Spirit Robot? Well, according to BS01, it's 40 million feet (12,192,000 metres), but why not fact check that.
So the island of Metru Nui (again, according to BS01) is 65,200 m long (40.51 miles for all y'all Americans), which means that according to this official image:
The Great Spirit Robot is about 12 Metru-Nuis long, so 12*65200 = 782,500 m (about 2,580,000 feet)
This is nowhere near to 40 million, as you may have been able to tell, however, you may have also noticed that this diagram doesn't actually look as well proportioned the Great Spirit Robot is (as explained in this BZP post: http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/9082-mu-domes-theories-map/
According to this post, the GSR should look a bit more like this:
which means that the Great Spirit Robot should actually be about 45 Metru-Nuis long, so 45*65200 = 2,934,000m (about 9,630,000 feet), which is still only 1/4 of 40 million.
So currently we have three possible measurements for the size of the GSR:
The Official Canon Size: 12,192,000m/40,000,000 feet
The Relative Size (when compared to the official MU map): 782,500m/2,580,000 feet
The Realistic Size (when compared to realistic MU measurements: 2,934,000m/9,634,000 feet
So, which one is the real size? Well until Greg says otherwise it's still officially 40 million feet but for the rest of this post, I'm gonna go with 2,934km. Of course, these are all just numbers on a screen, so let's compare this to some actual real-world sizes.
(random side note: when you look up 'what is 40 million feet large' on Google you actually end up with images of the GSR)
So, the diameter of Earth is 12,742km, meaning that the GSR is about 1/6 the size of Earth (picture for comparison)
Meanwhile, if we go for the canon height, this would mean that the GSR is about as tall as the Earth. I assume is why they gave the approximate diameter of the Earth for the canon height of the GSR, so as to make it realistic that it was about the size of a planet.
So, any interesting revelations? No, not really, just some maths and the realisation that the GSR should be way smaller than it is canonically. Last little side note, it looks like this image from the Faber Files might actually be more realistic than the canon size.
So yeah, that's it. Now get back to your lives and stop reading about the relative size of fictional robots from LEGO lines.
Ok so based on a new Map by KhingK from the RSG project, (which looks to be more accurate), the GSR is closer to 33 and 1/3 Metru-Nuis tall. So 33.3*65,200 = 2,171,160m (7123228.346 feet). This is pretty similar to my previous example so the relative size would be pretty similar for the most part, just a bit smaller.
So based on this new measurement we now have:
