Hi,

Was looking for a little help/confirmation as to what is the tallest figure in the SW line to date.

I am looking to build a shelved display case and need an idea of sizes.

My thoughts for tallest were between Amanaman,Vader,IG88 or one of the Chewies.

Anyone ?.

Thanks.

U.K.Boy.

Sorry, but they don't compair to the Graxal (Sp?) figure that comes with the Watto's Box Cenema Sceene. He is the largest (3 3/4) figure ever produced by Hasbro/Kenner. I myself don't have one loose anymore, but I'm sure someone hear does, so they can mesure it for you.

But if you don't like that one or never plan on haveing it, I'd say that the mechanic Chewy is the tallest. He's to scale, and he is actually standing straight up.

Just my thoughts, hope it helped :)

Yeah.

I have got the Watto's Cinema Scene but had forgotten about Graxol.

Anyone else even close ?.

I have nearly every figure loose. Graxol (again sp??) is by far the tallest. He's got to be over 6 inches (don't ask how I measured tee hee). He can be seated however, so I don't think you need to create a whole shelf based on this one figure's height.

Graxol is 7 and 3/8" tall.Second is the Wampa at 6".I don't know if you count him as a figure though. Next is mechanic Chewie at 5".
Hope it helps.

Muftak was pretty tall. He's definitely in the top three.

Who's the shortest? Jawa? Yoda? Tusken kiddie? Salacious Crumb?

Dryanta

Thanks EP.I had forgotten about Muftak.
He's at 4 3/4 "Shorter than Mech Chewie.So if the wampa isn't a figure than he is number three in the top three.Unless I forgot someone else.
Salacious is the shortest(I think) He's 1 3/8".

if the wampa is considered a figure in the 3 3/4 range than the biggest figure would be the rancor monster with jabba in second.
if not i really don't know i guess the dude from wattos box.:stupid: :crazed: :eek:

Dryanta
05-30-2002, 07:24 PM
Yeah I guess I shouldn't have considered the wampa as a figure.
The Faamba would be the tallest hands down if that same criteria was used.
So it goes Graxol,Mech Chewie,and Muftak.

ev-9d9 and chewbacca are both about
4 3/4" tall - don't have a graxol

Dryanta
05-30-2002, 07:34 PM
Which Chewie are you measuring Cujo?
I just double checked My Mechanic Chewie to Ev and chewie is at 5" ev9d9 is 4 3/4".Same as Muftak.I had forgotten her as well.LOL

hi everyone, I'm new here but am a long time collector. I'm thrilled to finally find a discussion about the tallest figures, I see this is an older thread so thought it would be cool to see if any newer figures can challenge the top 3 (Muftak, Chewbacca). Here's the ones I'm thinking of:

Ephant Mon (Jabba's palace)
wookie heavy gunner (rots)
wookie warrior/commando (rots)
Tarrful (rots)
Lama Su (aotc)
concept Grievous
pre-cyborg Grievous
Yarael Poof (jedi council)
Imperial Sentry (90s?)
Animated Grievous (first clone wars)
J'Quille (Jabba's sail barge)
Tanus Spijek (sail barge)
Yarua (wookie senator)
Kitik Keed Kak (cantina)
Foul Moudama (Muftak jedi)
Mustafar Sentry (rots)

I don't have a lot of these so I can't measure but know they are all very tall from pictures and such.

I made an error on one - Imperial Sentinel is the name, not sentry. He's from 98, expanded universe. Here is a pic, he is in the middle by the blue royal guards. Towers over most figures, even the Shadow Trooper.

I never understood why people raved about VOTC Chewie, Mechanic Chewie has always been my favorite.

Welcome aboard!

The Tri-Droid figure is really tall if you stand him upright, taller even than Graxol Kelvyyn.

Concept Grievous is very tall, taller than even the new ROTS Grievous that's properly-scaled.

thanks for the welcome. i thought about the tri droid too but figured he didn't count as a basic figure, i really am not sure where to draw the line there. if the tri droid came in the same type of package/card as a basic figure then i suppose it would count? kind of funny to be side tracked thinking about this height topic.

Lama Su has to be way up there on the list too. Another I just discovered is the phase 3 Dark Trooper that you have to assemble. Supposedly 5-1/2 inches. Now my question is- are the three dark troopers all from the same mold? I want to acquire all the tall figures so we can have a definitive ranking of who the tallest figures are, cause it's driving me crazy!

The Tri-Droid is a basic figure in that it came in a basic wave on a basic card for a basic price. And surely if you can count Concept Grievous who wasn't a basic, you can count this guy: http://www.rebelscum.com/TAC0805tridroid.asp (I'm not talking about the new Octuptarra Droid vehicle.)


Lama Su is on his list already. The Phase 3 Darktrooper is really massive, it should be on that list. It's not from the same mold as the others, nor should it be, in the game the Phase 1 is a skeletal robot, the Phase 2 is an armor-wearing robot, and the Phase 3 is a mech suit with a pilot inside so it's a lot bigger than the phase 2.

thanks for the info, that confirms the tri droid as the tallest. I came across this cool action figure music video you must check out, there are a bunch of the tall figures (Ephant Mon, Y.Poof, wookie warrior, graxol, etc.) in it

I have measured my Muftak, and found he's closer to 4-1/2" not 4-3/4". Shorter than I thought, although he's a massive figure. He will probably not make top 10. IG Lancer Droid is on the way next. He looks like a contender.

IG 8D8

just got the IG lancer droid in the mail. He's my new tallest figure, at 5"+ taller than the chewbacca that came with the big falcon. A great looking figure too, really nice detail.

really depends on the concept of the figure... i always think of the Rancor as a figure.

the list I am compiling is just for "basic figures" in other words if you see them hanging from a peg on a cardback, they count. Or if they are in a box or cinema scene, for instance Watto's box, or the Max Rebo Band. There could be a list for large creatures too.

So, Wampas would count by your list since there was one that was on a carded figure on the pegs as a deluxe figure.

IG 8D8
10-03-2009, 04:13 AM
I guess he would by that definition. I still like the idea of a separate category for large creatures, such as all wampas, rancor, ronto, dewbacks, etc. It's a tough call because of instances like that one wampa. What do you think, should the wampa count?

pbarnard
10-06-2009, 12:15 PM
By your definitions, the Blue carded Deluxe Wampa would count but the PotF2 Beast Collection Wampa would not.

I'm not sure I'll count him at this time, but I will consider it. He would not be the tallest, maybe top 3 though.

I should point out too I will not be counting accessories as part of a figure's height, for example weapons and also things like Han's carbonite block. Horns and tusks, tentacles etc. will count. It also rules out add-ons like the R2 that's boosting off the ground, or the Demise of Grievous figure's flames. It could get tricky with some items and may require a ruling!

ok, new question. Should figures from the "droids" cartoon line be counted? I guess one of them is close to 5". I'm leaning towards yes because expanded universe figs will be counted. I just don't recognize the droids' characters.

It's your list so they're your rules. :)

I think I will include them, only problem is I have none of those figures so getting height info is a challenge.

IG 8D8
10-28-2009, 08:14 PM
I finally found some height info - figurerealm.com they include a figure's height in their reviews. I was thrilled to find this but it seems the heights are far from accurate and they have rounded the heights up or down. Some are way off. What do you guys think on these:


Wookie Commando 5.0 inches
Concept Chewbacca 5.0"
Lama Su 4.75"
Ephant Mon 4.75"
Saga Destroyer Droid 4.75"
Mechanic Chewbacca 4.75"
Lava Miner 4.50"
Fode and Beed 4.50"
EV 9D9 4.50"
Preview Wookie Warrior 4.50" (over 5" actually)
Animated Durge 4.50"
Imp. Sentinel 4.50"
Yarua 4.50"
Saga Super Bat. Droid 4.50"
Cloud City Capture Chewy 4.50"
R1-G4 (Tatooine) 4.50"


A few head scratchers:

Tarfful 4.25" (more like 5.25")
OTC IG 88 4.25"
Yak Face 4.25"
Dark Trooper 4.25"
Pablo Jill 4.25"

Ok, just got the concept Chewbacca (with pointy ears)... kind of disappointed in the height of him. I read somewhere here that he was the tallest before phase 3 dark trooper came along (excluding graxol, tri droid).

Sorry to say concept chewbacca only comes in at 5" which will probably send him out of the top 10. He's pretty big for a SW figure but not compared to the tallest. The search continues.
