Glad this is proving helpful!  Megs…

1:1 to 2:9200 x 300mm / 8 x 11.75in
2:10 to 3:38230 x 300mm / 9 x 11.75in
3:39 to 3:63210 x 300mm / 8.25 x 11.75in
3:64 to 3:79230 x 300mm / 9 x 11.75in
4:1 to 4:18195 x 300mm / 7.75 x 11.75in
201 to present210 x 280mm / 8.25 x 11in
Floppies190 x 260mm / 7.5 x 10.2in

Regrettably my Spreadsheet of Thrill-power Facts doesn’t cover the other publications, but from what I recall...

Specials: As Prog 520 wide format, with those issued in the 70s and since 2000 in the current Prog format, or thereabouts.  The Dredd Mega-Special varied in size most issues, with the last 4 as Prog 520.

Starlord: Like New Eagle (bit wider than Prog 1033 A4 format?)

Tornado: As Prog 1

Diceman: Think this was the Prog 520 wide format

Revolver: As Meg 1:1 narrow format (same for the special)

Crisis: As Meg 1:1 narrow format, except last 4 issues, and Crisis / Xpresso specials which were Prog 520 wide format

Poster Progs: A4 I think (well, until unfolded… ::)), except the 1970s Dan Dare one which I think was larger, maybe nearer to Prog 520 format

Lawman of the Future: Not sure, but smaller than current prog - similar to Meg floppies maybe.

Annuals: 195 x 275mm (7.6 x 10.8in) - I happen to have the 2000AD 1980 annual on the shelf for some reason.

Yearbooks: Prog 520 format?

Reprint mags: I think these tended to reflect the era they were reprinting, so Best Of 2K, Complete JD started as Prog 1 format and moved to Prog 520 format.  Classic 2K and Classic JD varied between A4, the narrow Prog 1200 format and the wide Prog 520 format.  No idea what the issues numbers of the changes are though.

More than happy for people to update any of that - the spreadsheet's always hungry for more data...
