As for why Metroplex is so much bigger than Metrotitan (beyond simple toy scale), remember how G1 Metroplex and G1 Trypticon were both much bigger than the G1 combiners in the cartoon? Well, when Trypticon became one of the Nine Great Demon Generals, he was then the same size as the other combiners, meaning that he must have been smaller by then. And Metrotitan was about the same size as the Generals (maybe a little bigger), so he'd be that size too. If G1 Metroplex kept his original size, he'd thusly be that much bigger than Metrotitan.
As for Omega Supreme, he was the same size as the G1 combiners in the cartoon, so he'd be their size here, and looks appropriately so with Superion not too far away from him in that image.
But, if Metroplex still looks to be way too big in that pic, there's a very simple explanation. Since this is the cartoon continuity, we know what Metroplex looked like in the cartoon and it certainly wasn't that design. Therefore, he's gotta be in a new body here, one that likely upgraded his size even further.

Much like how Grand Maximus in Masterforce is toy size (with God Ginrai riding on him), Unlike fortress Maximus who was portrayed at TF city scale in Headmasters (with full sized characters like chromedome coming out of tiny doors in his foot), not his toy size.
And yes, I agree with Sabre. Omega was the same size as Devastator in the G1 toon. Combiners are big, but Metroplex is big enough to fit half to 3/4 of a combiner in his hallways (or near enough) A combiner would be nowhere near the size of Metroplex's leg even, much less higher, I'd say. Metroplex is an entire city for Full size TF's. Although that said combiners and Omega mass shifted to suit purpose thanks to wonky planning by writers and animators of season's 1-3. Look at Astrotrain for crying out load. In bot mode he is as tall as Megatron yet in shuttle mode he can carry 20 of him so who knows.
I stand by my Metrotitan explanation though
