    I haven't confirmed it because all my old ones are still buried in my parents' basement somewhere... but I'm pretty sure that Kenner's M.A.S.K. figures would probably be close to scale with Alternators. They have poseable knees too, so you might even get them to sit properly.

    Anyone test this out?

    I've tried the M.A.S.K. figures but you'd need to cut a little bit off of the feet and a little bit on the thigh because of the steering wheel. Then they'll fit.

    Other than than the Mantis-Mech Destro, they aren't articulated, but the "Mission Scale" Sigma-6 era Gi-Joes are the right scale and look AWESOME with the Alternator folks....plus the continuity makes sense.

    Plus that MARS/Cobra transforming Mantis mech really just feels like it belongs in a TF v Joe comic ;) 

    OH! And the bike riding ones will ride on a lot of TF cycles. Storshadow has been on Aelita-1 since I got her....as weird as that actually is....

    I can't help that you're blind. :lol 

    I've gotten a few o fthe smaller Sigma 6 figures as well. I repainted a Destro to be more like the original. I've got a handful of others I'd like to use as well. I've cut them from their bases, and will be painting a few. They look nice, but I'm not thrilled with them like I am with the M.A.S.K. figures. The M.A.S.K. figures were actually designed to be 1:24 scale, whereas the Sigmas were essentially designed to be smaller figures in a loose scale. I do like them because they're on the cartoon side like comic books and manga :)

    Well Alternators are roughly 1:24 scale.

    A six foot tall man would be-- 72 inches divided by 24 = 3 inches

    I would say a 3 inch figure would be ideal, basic Star Wars figures are 3 1/2 inches I think, so they would fit but be a tad over scale. Would work fine for the casual diorama. I think the newer Indiana Jones guys are 3 1/2 inches, and have more "real world" potential.

    If articulation is not a priority check those Homies figures(not sure of they still make 'em) I think they are 3 inches.:thumbs2:

    I use some Megablock's Pirates. They fit INSIDE my Alts, but they look like hobbits with the robots.

    spiderman rocket racer "new goblin" he just need a new head. around the same size as a mask figure. i had to take out the figure's torso to make it fit inside the viper. around 11$ cad

    minimates also fit perfectly. just change the head so it doesn't look too blocky.
