Approximately >7' tall.

Shredder is 6'

The average human body is 7.5 heads tall, making Shredder's head 9.6" tall. Assuming that Shredder and Kraang are standing the same distance away from the viewer, Kraang apears to be ~1.5 Shredder heads taller than Shredder. This would make Kraang 86.4" tall, or about 7'3".

Edit: the website above changed the height to 6' even, so I adjusted accordingly.
This site fans argue between 5'11" and 6'2".
And this site says 6' as well.
But this site clames 6'2".
And this site claims 5'10".

So the consensus seems to be ~6' making Kraang over 7' in that picture.

  • There appears to be no evidence given in the wiki article ton substantiate Shredder's height.

    7'3" sounds reasonable. Or the same height as Knicks center Kristaps Porzingis. I bet that Porzingis is better at hoops, though. Commented Jan 21, 2018 at 19:35

    What? No. You can't use an artistic standard of height (7.5 heads) and apply it arbitrarily to another piece of art or even real life using that scale. You find a full body image of Shredder and find out how many heads he is in that style, with his own head, and derive your measurements from there.

    More importantly, you can't use a height of a character from a completely different continuity and mutation as a reference to calculate the height. And then there's the issue that the supposed height is completely unsourced.

It depends on what the Size Transformation Actuator is set to. In season 6 episode 2, Krangenstein Lives, after repairing the Molecular Amplification Unit broken in season 1 episode 5:

The body's size keeps fluctuating between enormous and tiny during the fight that ensues.

In this episode Krang's ecto-frame varies in size from towering over buildings to fitting in a Turtle's fist:



Its default size (season 2 episode 9) appears to be about 5 times 1987 Krang's height of 0.45 meter: 2.25 m or 7.38 ft (7'5") plus 10 cm (4") antenna, totaling 2.35 m or 7'9".
