    Default Persian Empire figures (and war elephant...)


    I can't lie to you about your chances, but... you have my sympathies.

    The scale of the 1/6 elephant is completely wrong.
    The guy who is standing in the picture of the 1/6 elephant is almost as tall as the elephant.
    In real life even a small species elephant (adult) is about 2,7m and a larger one reaches 3,5m.

    Perhaps it is a teenager elephant?

    More like a baby elephant!

    Tough crowd...
    Two really cool figures from a subject matter that no one has done before and all everybody comments on is the size of a 1/6 elephant...

    It is awesome that someone is releasing Persians. This is a very cool expansion to the historical offerings, though I've no idea how accurate they are.

    It’s a legitimate complaint, however. As someone pointed out on a different forum, an Asiatic elephant is about 9’ at the shoulders, so about 13” tall in 1/6. This isn’t even close. And for what they want to charge, it should be accurate— not a baby elephant.

    Sorry if my post was too offensive, but it wasn't my intention.
    The (wrong) size of the elephant made me forget about the figures.
    It is so completely wrong, that it was all I was seeing at the moment.
    The figures seem ok and if someone can confirm they are historical accurate,
    one can use them together with Great Alexander/King Leonidas figure
    (depending on the timeline), to make a nice diorama.

    EDIT: Your link is for the 1/6??? elephant.
    That's why I reacted like this.
    If they want to charge $150 for the elephant, at least make him at the correct scale.
    The links for the figures are here & here.

    True enough, but I doubt there is a market for something that size. I mean, I've seen WWII collectors with actual 1/6 scale tanks, but that's a much larger market (or it was at least) than these historical figures. But yeah, the elephant is way too small, not to mention that it looks like and African elephant, adding insult to injury...

    No problem man!
    I just think it's really exciting to see companies doing all these truly fantastic figures that nobody seems to pay attention to. Just the other day I was browsing some online store and I was amazed at the quantity of figures that are out there that never get mentioned here at the freaks forums.
