Idea for Scale picture sharing

Postby jimsloth » Sun Feb 26, 2006 12:58 pm

I'm sure I'm not the only basher that comes up with an Idea for a bash, but really isn't sure if the pieces he pictures using are the right size, and doesn't want to go out and buy (especially over the internet) a toy that ends up being off scale. So why not have a section where people can post requests for pictures of two toys/parts next to each other, and who ever happens to own both can post pics in responce.

For example, under the thread "Sigma Six + Alternator Grimlock" I'd post, I just thought about using a sigma six gijoe guy's head and hands for an alternator, but I don't own any of them and really don't know if they'll be way too big. Could someone post one next to... say, grimlock?

quick math:
8in:6ft
4in:3ft
4in:36in
2in:23in
1 : 8.5 scale. Not a very common scale at all.

But the main reason I posted this in the website catagory is because I was asking for an administrator to start a sub-forum where we can all ask each other in seperate threads for scale pictures. That was just one example. Another is asking if the History Collection Bumblebee figure's head is a good size for G1 bumblebee. Or Energon Rodimus Prime's head compaired to G1 Hotrod.

Maybe its close, maybe a picture leaves it up to my judgement rather than just someone else's opinion. Again, I'm sure many of us come up with questions like this all the time, and our only current options for figuring it out are either ponying up the money, taking the risk that its completely useless, or scouring the internet for different pictures and trying to do guess work from that (which I've done all too often).

many thanks Billy! I now know that even though the head does look too big, Other body parts might be perfect for a different, larger 1:24 Modelkit I'm working with :wink: Can't use the head though. Duely noted.
