I hear a lot of talk about people wanting every figure ’in scale’ with every other figure in a line. This has brought back memories of the old days, the mid 80′s, when there was only one line of heroes for each major comic company. I was in my late teens, but thinking back, it never bothered me as a kid that figures I used together were different sizes. You had one version of any given character, and that was it. It was nothing like today. These days we have Marvel and DC heroes in multiple lines, sometimes the same character in different lines at the same time. Who ever thought we would see the Gentleman Ghost for sale at all, let alone 3 versions for sale at about the same time.
Do they really need to be ‘in scale’? To take this to the extreme, I rearranged my figures in a ‘different’ way, mixing them up between lines. I think it actually looks kind of cool this way. You might want to try it.
Mixing scales allows you to do some cool stuff. Here are some ideas.
Adults and Kids.
A Green Lantern Gallery.
Or remake a scene from The Super-Friends.
(Remember the episode where the Legion of Doom transformed themselves into 100 foot tall giants? Captain Cold is about to freeze the heroes into an ice cube!)
Most of all, have fun.
