In 1/4 scale, this statue would be 89 feet tall and 138 feet long ...that's hilariously large. IMO ...and this is just me ...a 2 feet tall and 3 feet long Godzilla statue is still huge.
Knowing my luck, I’d be running around with a 1/4 scale Godzilla and then someone shows up with a 1/3 or 1/2 scale Godzilla, and then I would feel inadequate with a tiny Godzilla.

I am cracking up at this #MathIsHard thread because I have been there once or twice myself. But nothing like this...

"Make it happen in 1/3 scale....
then;
Ok, I'd take it in 1/4 scale"



Even at 1/20 - Godzilla is still 17 feet tall and 27 feet long. Houses don't even have ceilings that high.

I agree that Godzilla would be an amazing statue. As would the rest of the Titans. I would just like a scale that fits in a house. Like 1:100 or smaller.

Well, Louis Koo (Hong Kong actor) wants a 1:1 Optimus Prime in his collection.

Lol yeah it's crazy. I remember there being a member here who had a life size Alien statue that was crazy huge! That's just a new level of the hobby, I think 1/3 is the biggest I'll go.

A quick lesson in how scale works in attempt to at least be constructive about it all:

Say you're 6 feet tall. If there was a 1:1 scale statue of you, it would be 6 feet tall. A 1:3 scale (as in, 1/3rd of actual size,) it would be 2 feet tall. To calculate scale you just take the actual size and divide it by whatever scale you're trying to get to.

So if a character is 7 feet tall and you want a 1:3 scale statue, 7 divided by 3 is 2.33 feet, or roughly 28 inches.

And in the case of P1 you'd have to calculate the size of the base to get the full statue height, so that statue would be roughly 60 inches tall lol.

Oh yea! the base... can't have a Prime 1 statue without a massive base... and Godzilla surely deserves a massive base so... add 25%... lol

I think the base for Godzilla would just Earth.

Museum pose, of course. You don't want a big footprint.

Spoiler

1/4 Sserpo, going on 1/3.

Oh yeah, that's the one. EX would be a life insurance policy.

And I forgot the "be" in that post. What a schmuck.

Thank you guys. Much appreciated. I wasn't thinking of actual size of Godzilla so I saw the 2014 Godzilla SS once had & i was basing it off of that. What scale was it? Thanks.
