Scale O’ Action figures?

Post by Leader » Sun Mar 18, 2007 10:37 am

With model kits it’s easy to tell the scale, it’s right on the box. But with the action figures, who cares? Lonely people like me, that’s who. So tell me, what’s the scale of the action figures? 1/200th, something like that?

According to the ol' rusty trusty Gundam Official Guide, MSiA figures are roughly 1/170 scale.

I believe 1/200 is the scale for HCM Pro.

Ahh, many thanks to you both, this has been bothering me for a while. I’ve been playing around with the idea of doing a short photo comic of, well, mobile suits fighting but many MS only have model kits. It might help me a bit but if I do make the comic I’ll probably just use camera angle and perspective to make everything look in scale. Once again, thanks for the quick responses!
