LOL. Do you even own the statue? So it's unfounded, your personal 'feelings' do not really count only specific measurements and data. Ok, that's all I wanted to know please keep heresay out of it til you have specifics, thanks.

So you didn't measure it, you don't own it, have not compared it to other 1:4 pieces and you claim it's not 1/4. So where do these 'feelings' come from and how are they justified? Just wondering. It must have been from something a pic, a comparison, something?

PF's, Cinemaquettes, 1:2, 1:1 and the ultimate...the screen used version...it never stops - you are limited to your budget and self control.
Unfortunately I have a budget.

where did u get that info :confused:

the head sizes of this guy and dooku pf are close, but thats only because venom is a monstrous character, id expect an in-scale spiderman to be smaller...<1/4

Actually compared it heightwise to the other PFs and it seems to match up. The face sizes too. So it matched up with Dooku a 1/4 scale and so it's not 1/4 cos he's monstrous? Hmm.... interesting.....

if a hulk statue is the same height as dooku pf, would you say its a 1/4 hulk?

So you are basing it off the face comparison alone or other aspects?

Are you talking about height or size of face? What's height comparison of Dooku vs Venom standing then?

You do know that Hulk is 7'8" from MU and Venom is 6'3" right?

So I guess I'm missing your point about Hulk vs Venom height similarities.

lol of course hulk is bigger than venom, but the same logic still applys here. if a big character is in similar height with a normal sized character, then obviously the scale does not match. one thing to note is that brock is 6'3, but venom is bigger than that.

like i said earlier, wait for the spidey comiquette to come out and compare it with PFs and see if hes in scale. then we'll know for sure.

Well not waiting for Spidey let's do the V because heck you could be on to something here with the face and all. Spidey is really a separate piece and should be critiqued on it's own merits.

So Venom is about 7' standing height in the comiquette. That's quite a lot of difference from 6'3.

well i dont see it that way, cos they venom/carnage/spidey are in the same line and therefore same scale. and its much easier to compare two normal man-sized characters.

and i dont have specific measurements. like i said i dont own it, but i have seen both displayed and my gut feeling tells me venom is not 1/4.

04-02-2010, 08:13 AM
Lol....what? Venom's head isn't as big as Dooku's head so he isn't 1/4? You think every artist matches their work with works from other artists and from different lines? The truth is Venom is closer to 1/4 than 1/5 end of story. And why is Dooku's head the standard for 1/4 scale? Sorry but your arguments are ridiculous.

So if they mess up on the size of one piece in a line they mess up on the whole line? hmm. So by your logic the AH line are all in the same scale? Why the descrepancey between BC and Mystique then?

well movie character statues are always good assement for scales, plus you can compare it to other PFs. i just happened to saw venom and dooku next to each other...

all im saying is venom is a monstrous character and it should be significantly bigger than other man-sized 1/4 statues if hes in scale, but thats not what i saw.

individual pieces from AH lines are not meant to be display together, while venom/carnage/spidey are meant to be a themed group display, of course they should be in sclae, and will be.

So 7 feet is not big enough for you? How large do you want him to be in 1/4 scale then?

He means that if this Venom comiquette was standing upright, it would be close to 21 inches (about 7 feet in quarter scale). Which are exactly the same measurements I took just now.

The most important thing is, Venom is in perfect scale with other Marvel quarter-scale pieces. Comparing him to, say, Cap, who is one of the larger Marvel PFs, Venom is much bigger, physically. His muscles have far more mass, he is taller (if he stood), his head is wider.

Of course different artists draw Venom differently, and if you're looking at an artist that's drawing him insanely bulked up, you might perceive Venom to be Hulk-sized (which he isn't). The sculpt is somewhere between Mcfarlane's original interpretation, and the uber bulked-up Venom.

I am Remy, and I am a 1/4 scaleaholic:wave

I mainly collect 1/6 and although I really love looking at PF from other members, I made myself limited to sixth scale figures.
Then one day, I saw PF ANH luke on ebay that had no reserve and I ended up winning it. To my shock, its actually the cheapest figure I've ever bought. Was actually disappointed after I won it as I was also looking at the 1/6 and was wanting to buy one when I happen to glance at the PF.

Then, it arrived and I was shocked. I know they're bigger and you think yes they're gonna be taller but once in hand you get to see the true scale difference compared to my Hot toys. Once he was displayed and with the LED lights, I was really impressed. My grail has always been the PF captain america but just never pulled the trigger as I've always thought with that money, I could get several more Hot toys. But after seeing Luke, Once I got my income tax, I got my grail. The PF cap is soooo amazing.:monkey2

So, being a SW fan, I went ahead and ordered PF Jedi Luke and PF Jack Sparrow. :hi5: he he.

But the sad part is, realistically, that would be it for me and I will get back to 1/6 scale where my budget belongs.
unless of course there's another PF that gets announced that I just have to have also hee hee:wink1:
