I'd already seen that actually... Typical "My toy is perfect, you're the one who is wrong!" kind of talk though. I bet it's also coming from people who feel Hasbro does them a service by making this stuff, and that we should be "thankful" we have it to buy.
The best diagram I have seen of a Snowspeeder is from the old Tech Journals... It was based on the set blueprints for the lifesize snowspeeder more than anything, and it showed just how tiny it is. If I can, I'll scan it. It's the only diagram of the ship I've seen that truly reflects its scale because it includes a human silhouette for reference.
I love the guy who said, "Look you couldn't even fit legs in there, ILM got it wrong not Hasbro". that's the most brilliant thing I've ever heard. Yes, professional scale model makers got it wrong... Kenner didn't. Brilliant.
Anyway, the guys in that thread acting like they have a foggy friggin' clue about the actual dimensions are simply wrong. Bust out FSWtoIJ to get some actual real model dimensions and even a simple look at how tiny the Snowspeeder is... It's good to see at least some people in that thread appear to know what they're talking about.
Yes the Snowspeeder toy is big, yes it is a nice sculpt... Sometimes I like toys too for what they are, but when they're not to-scale they're not. You can't fudge that.
The ARC Fighter and Gunship are GREAT toys, probaby the best vehicles ever made by Hasbro (well the gunship anyway), but they're nto to-scale no matter how badly I wish them to be...
Oh and to the guy who said the Jedi Starfighter from ROTS is oversized, you're wrong as well... Hasbro actualy got that right. It's pretty spot-on. I was surprised, but it's the truth. I can provide the #'s on it. I was going to pass on JSF's till I got some specifics on the ship and I had to have them then.
I don't post at Rebelscum because of threads like that... There were the influx of uninformed people who just KNEW they were right about this or that... Well telling me, "My toy is right by me looking at it and everyone else who actually has sat down and figured this out mathematically is wrong", is more than enough for me to not really care what that person is saying.
Because how could Hasbro be wrong? Obviously it was the people who made the models and props who got it wrong... I'm still laughing about that.
