    What size figures fit into the 1/12 votoms

    Does anyone know if a mcfarlane halo figure would fit into the cockpit of one of the 1/12 scopedogs? and does anyone have an accurate measurement of the 1/12 chirico cuvie yamato figure? any help would be much appreciated :)

    Sorry, I don't have the Chirico figure but if I remembered correctly, the Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider figure from the Marvel Legends can fit inside the 1/12 Scopedog? I really can't remmeber. But of the Halo figure is around 3 3/4 Joe size, it should fit - provided it has the articulation to do so.

    Size definitely wouldn't be a problem. Halo MC figures are a great deal shorter and smaller than a 1/12 person. The hips might be a wide, that could be the only sticking point.

    Btw

    I just got the scopedog today thats why I asked the question :) . I prefer the 1/12 over the 1/18 my 1/18 scopedog feels cheap :(  same with the chirico cuvie miroman like they are going to break if I try to pose them. But this is a good thread very useful and full of awesome pictures

    You have both the 1/12 (Yamato) and 1/18 (Takara) Scopedogs and you think the latter feels "cheap"? How so dude? I'm curious as I have only the Yamato one.

    I mean, Cobra!

    To think of that I have never seen 1/12 Dog in person.... I can imagine DMZ feels cheaper than Yamato, because it's cheaper, though.

    (I am still hoping to pick up Rabidly Dog somehow :( )

    How can the Takara Scopedog feel cheap? It has die-cast right? In fact, the 1/12 Yamato feels abit too plasticy for me! LOL!

    No diecast on DMZ :(  I just wish they had more weight on their feet at least, because my DMZ03 (Space Doggy) can't balance well with hi Round Mover on the back.

    I wish the roundmover wouldn't tip my 1/18 scopedog over some weight in thier feet would help it significantly nice idea. I just rest the figure against something :)

    Don't get me wrong its an awesome figure its just that it feels a little too light even with Chirico inside. Its not aswell balanced as the yamato scopedog either and mines paint is easily scratched whereas the yamato scopedog is huge and has a decent paint job but lacks the great details of the 1/18 even though the 1/12 has good details (I especially like the removable armour) :)

    Oh, I didn't know that the Takara Scopedog scratches that easily? I was thinking of hunting 1 down somewhere down the road. When did you get your Yamato Scopedog? Post pixs of Master Chief inside it! :)

    Why don't you get the Brutish Dog? It looks kind of cool with a gattling gun as its hand and I believe the claws on its left hand is metal! :D

    Let me just say this, to me DMZ looks the closest of what I see in the original cartoon, proportion wise. Yamato Tako seems to have smaller head? Might be just angles, though.

    My next hopeful purchase is (still) 1/35 Kaiyodo Bloodsucker :D

    Yeah, I still think the Takara Scopedog looks the best but maybe the Yamato one is more durable. Post pixs guys!!! :D

    Whoa! So the halo figure seems to fit pretty nicely inside the Yamato Scopedog! Which did you buy first - the halo figure or the Scopedog? Thanks for posting pixs by the way! :)
