I recall reading (in GURPS Ogre?) that the cybernetic brain is a yard each way and is mounted in a small vehicle (size of a car) for early training in the factory. That vehicle is unarmed and unarmored, the humans have a kill switch, and it never leaves the factory. Still, it's nominally an Ogre.

So, the answer to your question is: about the size of a Honda Civic. :)

Gosh that sounds so darn cute, like kittens; furry, cute balls of fluff with razor sharp claws.

Unarmed? I bet the lab guys at least fitted it with laser-guided nerf darts.

So thats where the Roborally idea came from. The humans set up a race track inside the factory for the baby ogres and it got a little out of hand...

Leading to the first two noises made by nearly all Ogres: "Wheeee!!!!" Crunch. ;)

And I thought this was going to be one of those "If an Ogre said "Does this colour scheme make my rear end look big," the correct answer would be.." sort of threads.

It is now I guess.

Still, if the Bopperverse is the descendent of the Ogreverse, then small Ogres abound.
