if your figure is scaling when you use a blendshape i'm guessing it's because your blendshape was a different size than your original model - or maybe you have a double transform going on somewhere - though i haven't had much experience with blends so i may be way off. the blendshape has to be exactly the same as the original model - except for the changed facial expression.

i'm guessing then, it's got something to do with the group...or maybe the pivot. i've only used blendshapes a couple of times so i'm a bit sketchy. i'm sure someone else will be able to offer better help.
