    Are there any out there? I could really use some for a diorama I'm building.

    You need some 3.75 inch people?

    Could throw some jackets on some star trek people, they're pretty plain.
    Sounds like a mix n match from different lines.
    There's a few normal looking star wars figures that look like moms & uncles and stuff .

    Maybe get a cheapo preggers padme and a little baby stroller for her to push from the girls aisle

    GI Joe is 1/18 scale right? Knowing that might help.

    Hmm, you're both right. What I'm trying to build is a hostage situation, I think maybe I'm asking too much of current toy companies... I'll certainly take a look at the star wars figs, and maybe take a look at some Indiana Jones toys.

    I can understand them not being a popular concept for toy companies though.

    "Inaction Man!

    Sits on sofa! Watches TV! Hand holds beer, phone or dick!"

    hmmm. Ah well.

    Thanks for your help, I'm sure I'll find something.

    Wal-Mart occasionally has some cheapy construction worker guys at the 3 3/4 inch scale.

    And the GI Joe Headman character with a different head could make a pretty convincing businessman hostage.

    It's funny I stumbled upon this thread, as I just saw some civilian-type sets at my local Walmart this afternoon. They had these "Bass Fishing" and "Camping" sets that came with generic dads, kids and gear (tents, fishing poles, etc.) at 1/18 scale. I was debating picking them up for amusing stop motion shoots. They were in the Hot Wheels/Tonka Truck aisle.
