No size comparison of Klan at full Meltradi size, however the heights of the characters are as follows:

Grace = 173cm

Sheryl = 169cm

Luca = 160cm

Nanase = 165cm

Klan = 146cm (micronized)

Michael = 180cm

Alto = 175cm

Ranka = 158cm

Ozma = 185cm

Bobby = 190cm

Kathy = 173cm

Camilla = 180cm

Gilliam = 187cm

Quarter Captain = 178cm

Bridge Bunnies = 162/165/172cm

I hope this helps...

Wow... Bobby is very tall... and Ranka is... very very small... ^_^

I'm as tall as Michael... :lol:

Btw... Who could Camilla be? Canaria? :huh:

It's a competition where you have to enter photographs of your own original customized valk (has to be a Bandai MacF one) and the top prize is that you get to meet Megumi Nakajima, give it to her (the valk, you gutter-dwellers), and in exchange she will give you her own original valk.

Kinda sucks that you gotta give up what you worked so hard for, though. There's no guarantee that what you'll be getting is of comparable quality, so I guess it really depends on how much of a Ranka fan you are.

Damn. Thanks anyway.

At the very least, I should be able to extrapolate something from the Super Pack line art of Klan Klang. She's been a major problem with scale since the beginning anyway. Another Kamjin in the making :(

Zentradi have always had a problem with scale. In theory the rank and file Zentradi were 5 times the size of humans from the start, but the animation has never matched that consistently and especially by 7 and Frontier they seem larger than that.

I blame SDF Macros episode 32 for the most part :)

Seriously though, there have been a few scaling mistakes here and there, but animating the Zentradi soldiers equal in height to the Valkyries in episode 32 remains the most significant scaling guffaw in the Macross series. Do You Remember Love? got the scale correct on all the Zentradi and the other Macross productions never showed any scaling problems with the Zentradi/Meltrandi (Exedol or Graham) because a scale sequence never appeared.

Klan is the first Zentradi since DYRL to appear noticeably out of scale. If the VF-25 is really 15.59 meters tall, Klan is like 12 meters in height (for comparison, Milia is 8.55 meters tall). Like Kamjin, Klan appears too big to fit inside her own mecha :)

I don't just mean scaling against mecha, but also scaling against humans, which happened in SDFM, in limited cases in Macross 7(movie, Dynamite, and also somewhere in Encore and the Plus segments), and also on multiple occasions in Frontier. If Zentradi:human is 5:1, one would expect a human next to a Zentradi to look significantly though not enormously larger than an 10-12" 1:6 doll like a Barbie or original format GI Joe next to a human. At 1:5 scale a human on a Zentradi's shoulder would stand higher than the Zentradi's head, one in a hand would be nearly twice as long as said hand and at least three times that hand's width, and one on the ground would not be as tall as the Zentradi's kneecap(heeled shoes excluded), but could likely reach up and touch its bottom. On the contrary, animation from at least the later part of SDFM, as you say, and the subsequent TV series in addition, have made the human look smaller than that. At a guess I'd say that animation more commonly shows a scale factor of 7 or 8, however inaccurate it might be to official numbers.

Could someone scan the Grace page? If it's just a single page on her I really don't want to buy the whole book.

PS---love this pic:

Don't see Grace though, and Ranka's covered up in the corner! I think she's cosplaying as Macro Klan. Anyone have a "full" version of it?

And Brera's outfit works 100x better on Sheryl. I'd buy a figure of that...

I'm just surprised the Nanase-crowd hasn't mentioned Nanase is Luca's "small" school uniform. And someone should make sure that Michael DOESN'T take off that Sheryl costume in front of a crowd. :blink:

I'm going to move our discussion to a dedicated thread, found here.

:angry: Did you just say that? :p

Say what? Klan Klang? :lol::p

Damn!

I want to see all the customs, hopefully they'll post them on a site somewhere... B))

She is hot. But everything seems to be censored...

So I read elsewhere that Saotome Rui in that Ranka outfit is going to parody Ranka in one of her porn films.

That company is filming is famous for such parody shows.

Also read that the DVD is supposedly coming out in March2009.

Any other available pictures besides the already provided link?

The next one would probably be Sheryl or even Klan Klang.

Please don't, or this will escalate even further, we will have Sheryl, Klan, Nanase, or worst of all, Alto hime and Bobby. :ph34r:
