1:6 is a great scale and not just reserved for 12Ē action figure/dolls. I like 1:3 & 1:4 too but when it comes to producing a diverse line of characters that larger scale isnít realistic both from a financial and display space perspective. 1:6 is far easier to collect.

Couldn't agree more! I have been collecting and painting 1/6 superhero model kits for nearly 30 years, which was the standard for so long. Happy to see the resurgence/emergence of 1/6 pre-paint statues, especially now that my eyesight has become more feeble Love this line!

You've convinced me to try a 1/6 piece. I ordered the 1/6 Aquaman.

Aquaman is nearly 20" tall and over 13" deep.

That should have quite a bit of presence for being "only" 1/6 scale.

Word! I have about 6 of the Koto X-Men pieces and I don't see why I'd want them bigger, that is the sweet spot size and this line may be what those Koto pieces are in 10 years.
