Quote from: brontodocus on December 15, 2012, 04:05:36 PMThank you so much, Kikimalou & Ana! Although it's quite some work measuring the figures (in most cases I take more measurements than just shoulder height but I don't post all data I have all the time, I guess it's already quite nerdy), I think it's really worth doing so, it gives a much better impression of proper size relations between different animals, and e.g. the "Big Five" should really dwarf other animal figures considerably.And if I was a Cheetah I'd probably not get so close to a male African Buffalo! Scale of this scene approx. 1:24.
Quote from: CM on January 13, 2013, 05:17:52 AMSounds like you've got a lot of the same obsessions I do, only I'm so far too lazy to do anything about it. I had started a database because I wanted to be able to organize lists of different companies' offerings by things like scale, or classification, or release year, etc., but there aren't really very complete listings out there that I can find. Also, being newish to the hobby, I find I'm simply not that interested in a lot of older, and therefore ... cruder-looking, figures. I really wish companies would release more "official" scale descriptions though.
