Transform individually NOT using percentage?

I can't tell if I'm completely missing something or there's just a more complicated way or doing this. I'm trying to resize 5 objects so they are all the same size. They are currently all different sizes. When I use Object > Transform > Scale, it defaults to percentage. I change it to the dimensions in pt values. Then when I select the other objects and click "Transform Again Individually" it uses the percent rule and thus the objects remain different sizes. Is there another way to do this?

 

I know I can do it manually, but I would really like to be able to resize all these objects so they are the same.

Scale is always percentage? 

 

Fact that you are using points doesn't change its behaviour - only does the math for you.

So is there a way to resize using point (or other concrete) values?

Hi, this does not help me as it resizes everything as a percent relative to its original size. If I have 5 objects that are different sizes, transform individually will not make them the same size, but rather 80% of whatever all of their individual sizes are. I am looking to make these 5 objects all the same height and width.

I think the only option would be through scripting...
