I was curious if you can evaluate the Yuzuriha Inori 1/8 figure for me please :)
ITEM #78618
From what I've seen in videos, a lot of people expected her to be bigger, but she is pretty small. Does 1/8 fit that "small" category? Just wondering...
Thank you and thanks for the informative article :)

Scale accuracy in toys is never given much importance because they are made with molds for production and therefore uses almost identical parts and shapes to lessen production cost. So for ease of determining scale, they just use the measurement in inches or centimeters as the reference to scale. After all, not everyone knows how to determine the scale (as evidenced by your written explanation about scale).
Yes, especially since the figure is nearly always at least a little bit off, if not WAY off like some of these examples.
So, I guess the prize figures that ended up closer than most of the others are that way basically by chance.
My general hypothesis about scale is that companies just sort of take a look at the figure and character and think, is this basically good enough, does this look mostly ok? Then it's good enough to go to production.

Oh! i see. so he's way too expensive for his given size XP
thank you very much ! i think i'll still get him tho. Probably gonna save up on them amiami points XD
I could not find any information on Chamber's canon height. Looking at pictures and multiplying based on Ledo's canon height of 173 cm (he's kind of tall for how he looks), I'd estimate Chamber is roughly 1384 cm tall. Which would put the actual scale of that figure at 1/72.84, not even close to 1/50. So good job GSC...

Comparing one scale to another on paper won't give you any information regarding the height of a figure. 1/8 for instance means than the figure is 8 times smaller than the real character is. Therefore, a scale true height will depend on the height of the character it is based on. Which means than in a given situation, a 1/6 figure might be smaller than a 1/8, but for another character it could be the exact contrary. Since Chamber is a mecha and is supposed to be so big, obviously a 1/8 figure of him isn't possible otherwise the figure would be giant. This is why he is 1/50. That doesn't necessarily mean he will be smaller than a regular 1/8 figure though. You have to compare the scale to his true height :)

Thank you for this this information :O
what i want to understand is, if a figure's scales is 1/50 like
ITEM #144370
does it mean that it is smaller than let's say a 1/2 or bigger? cuz for its given price, that's too much ! if it's bigger then i'm sooooooo buying it since i've been waiting forever to get my hands on it.
There are also scales like 1/100 and more.
So far, i've been having the idea that the less the denominator is, the bigger the size of the figure
leading to a 1/1 aka a life size.

This is a really interesting look at scales; I definitely feel like sometimes a company just pulled a 'kinda sorta' number out of air, lol.
(and I have that Nuclear Fission Rin and she's super tiny next to my other 1/8ths, it's nice to know the exact scale she really is!)

Yup, smaller denominators (usually) mean bigger figures, assuming the originals you're comparing are about the same size. A 1/2 scale should be about half the size of the original, 1/3 should be a third of the size of the original, etc.
I'm not sure on this particular figure, but sometimes the actual original thing is huge (like a Gundam), so a 1/50 scale doesn't necessary mean a super tiny figure. This particular one looks like it'll be a bit bigger than a figma maybe? Smaller than your average 1/2 scale, definitely.

I'm curious how you got 155cm for Lain. That seems pretty tall. I couldn't find a height chart but in the lineups in the booklet that came with the BD, she's consistently shorter than her classmates.
I need to dig out "An Omnipresence in Wired" again to be sure but I think it was listed there in some of the random details.
Since you brought it up, I'll do some additional calculations based on estimations of different heights to see about this. If I assume something shorter but not LUDICROUSLY short--let's say, below Rei's height, how about 140 cm--then the figure comes out to 1/8.97, which places her at a near perfect 1/9. So she's still a scale smaller than stated.
To actually be anything reasonably close to 1/8 she'd need to have a canon height of no more than 130 cm, which isn't unreasonable, actually. I'll get back to you when I've retrieved the artbook to double-check or haven't found conclusive information either way. (In which case I'll simply conclude that I was wrong and give Vice the benefit of the doubt and assume her canon height is about 130 cm.)

I absolutely hate when scaled figures are not anywhere close to the given scale.
The *likely* reason companies do it is because they know that a 1/9 or 1/10 figure will not sell. So they just straight up lie about it. And since we collectors are used to it by now, we just accept it as common practice.
You never see a company claiming 1/8 when the figure is actually 1/7, because that costs more plastic. But you see them CONSTANTLY call 1/10 figures, like
ITEM #78618
Inori, 1/8 because, again, listing the actual, true measurement will dramatically hurt the sale of the figure. And they know that they won't get into trouble for it, so why not? They can't do it for every single figure, but for one or two every once in a while? Nothing will happen.
Companies don't make ten thousand figures without knowing full well that the figure is missing an inch and a half off the top. The master prototype doesn't even get anywhere close to actual production with such a glaring problem like that. And I know that I might sound a bit too worked up over a hobby, but I don't like being straight up lied to for a company's bottom line, and them getting away with it every time.
That's probably true for 1/9 and 1/10 but it definitely doesn't explain when a figure is bigger than given scale, like the Koto Eren in the example. It works in Koto's favor though. People are usually happy when a figure they're expecting to be smaller turns out to be impressively large.
I'm not too unhappy about Lain because it's not like I have other options and she's lovely anywya, but I am a bit sad that the Major is so small for her scale if only because that makes it hard to fit her with any of my other figures properly.
But I think you may have the right of it, it could actually be companies just lying in order to make a sale that they are worried they couldn't otherwise make. After all, unless they're Beach Queens (cough racket cough), figures stated to be 1/10 probably don't sell too well.
