    Hey guys, recently I watched this stop motion which inspired me to build a set around my display. Later down the track a stop motion with real sets is something that interests me too but that's just a pipeline dream atm. I'm just wondering, what scale for buildings would I be looking for to match those of the Masterpiece figures?

    Here is the stop motion:

    Prime's trailer is probably around 40-50 feet long or about 4-5 stories tall, if that's any help. Honestly it's kinda subjective, but I for one am on board with how the Lego buildings scale.

    I went looking at model train scales since there's an established community and lots of supplies for them. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like there's a good scale. Large scale trains are 1/25 which is a little too large but the next size down is O scale which is 1/48: way too small. You can probably get away with large scale though as it's not off by too much (mp carbots are approximately 1/30 scale).

    I second @Agamus suggestion. The good Lego buildings are a really good scale. Especially for MP's. They're expensive though.
