i like it in Star Wars stuff. good compremise between playable and still having viable Vehicles. It works in GI Joe for the same reason. That said, Sigma 6 (which were more like 8 inch) is my favourite series of Joes, so they are good as larger figures too.

I miss it in Marvel figures, and dont support it in DC ones. Superhero stuff is great at 6 inch size. Small just feels like a waste.

find with star wars, allow alot of display in limited space

if marvel/DC toys came in 3'75 first then maybe wouldn't be a problem, as collection would have started or never began, however we were spoiled by ML, so MU ruin it for marvel superheroes

HATE it. Don't collect it.

I made an exception for JLU, but I'm now replacing them with their DCUC counterparts.

All IMHO of course. I can see the appeal in them. But $36.00 for a two-pack of 3.75" figures is just completely unreasonable to me.

Cheers.

That's it for me, price, the only good price 3.75" fig series that was worth it was the mezco Hellboy 2 figs, $10, not this near $20 price tag on the hasbro licences and the $16 on dc... Just not worth it

Yep, price is beyond ridiculous. Of the 50 or so clones I have, I can count on one hand the amount I've paid full retail for.

Also I think that Star Wars would be less accepted if it had originally been 6" or something else.

In the early days I wasn't a fan.

As more companies began making 3.75" I started to warm up to the idea a lot more.

It's a scale that seems to allow for much more these days. Playsets & vehicles can be far too expensive to create for 6" lines, but are generally more feesable in 3.75"...though the price to consumers climbs higher & higher.

It's a scale that I have often found myself saying - What they lack in detail, they make up for in numbers! Very Happy

The Hellboy 3.75" figures are very good looking. And whille they have little movement, the Neca Potter 3.75" line seemed to sport good paint work.

The UK seem to be putting in some good efforts with the smaller scale. The PopCo Harry Potter kids were hit & miss, though most the adults looked awesome. From the same crew, the Golden Compass figures were quite beautiful.

I guess overall I'm not that phased by scale.

And seeing how I love posting pics, I'll thrown in some 3.75" goodness (or badness...however you see it!!):

My main dig with them is the price these suckers are. They should be no more than $12 if that. They are getting priced higher and higher. About the only ones that are a reasonable price is the Mattel ones, although of late even those have become to price creep.

Now the idea of the size being workable for playsets and vehicals is very real but I don't see anything coming the way of Marvel or DC in this way. (The art of a playset is lost. When was the last time Marvel actually had a playset?) It works very well with Joes and Star Wars, 2 universes that are very vehical orintated.

Now I will admit the idea of being able to have Joes Vs Marvel Vs DC Vs Star Wars does appeal.

Make them cheaper and I would buy more.

I got hooked on the 6" ML so its real hard to go to the 3.75" scale.
I also like the Super hero squad size that you see more and more of. My wife is getting all e Scooby Doo ones at this scale.
They are fun to play with my daughter and they are easy to store.

I think that the human Avatar ones are good because they fit in size with the 7" ones. (in scale)

While I do like the sculpts and character selection provided through the MU line, I ain't paying the RRP or starting a new Marvel Legends style collection.

I'm a big fan of the JLU line and love adding to my collection - when I can find the figures for a decent price.
