Jimmy Smitts a tall lanky sort?
« on: December 23, 2003, 11:34 AM »
Anyone possibly have an idea how tall Jimmy Smitts is?  His figure is REALLY tall compared to my Rikean figure.  A head above him really.  Seems odd unless the guy is tall and whoever played Riekean is short.

Yeah, I consider the Stormtrooper/Super Art. Clone to be a standard "Average" height, and old Organa towers over them half a head.  He towers over Gen. Riekean a full head...  

Either Smitts is damn tall, or his figure's just really big compared to some.

Hasbro's got a thing about Scale...  They were doing well for some time, but they contract too much of their sculpting out to people who take liberties.  Hoth Trooper's a prime example of a way outta whack figure.  I'm not sure if Smitts' figure is just large though, or if Rikean's short.  Hmmmmm

Jimmy Smits' height
« Reply #4 on: December 23, 2003, 03:37 PM »
Jimmy Smits is 6' 3".  How tall is the actor that played Rieekan?  I always thought Rieekan was the same height as Han/Harrison Ford (who is 6' 1").

Okay, here's the deal.  According to the official SW site, Rieekan is listed as being 1.8 meters tall, which makes him approximately 5' 11".  Rieekan (Bruce Boa) is 4 inches shorter than Bail (Jimmy Smits).  :)

Hmmm, methinks then someone's a bit shorter or taller than they should be.

I'm wagering Smitts is a bit taller.  I'll give him a boot lee-way though since his boots are kinda big.

It cuts it closer, but Riekean's a fair bit shorter than Organa and it really is odd.  No real complaint from me, it's just a noticeable difference.

Thanks for the help guys, especially for the actual #'s you all dug up.  Appreciated, and prompt even! :)
