Just a suggestion, could you prodominantly indicate what scale your figures are on your homepage.
The sculpts of some scales make it hard to be certain sometimes.
For new lines of figures, an image of your figures next to a more familiar line (Old Glory, Essex, Irregular) would also help, but that may be a bit above and beyond. 😎

I'm a retailer and the entire site is broken down by size or scale. In addition, the left hand gutter indicates what category you're looking at.

It is a very common problem. Many retailers that only sell one size/scale don't bother to tell you what that is.

Similarly, adverts should tell the customer what size/scale up front instead of having to follow a link to find out.

Good idea. Maybe a good method might be to picture a 15mm,25mm or 30mm (as appropriate)cube next to figures. If manufacturers use products of others they will choose "odd" items to promote their own figures or even out of production figures.

i will put some cubes on the website soon.
You have a good idea there .

Do you really think a manufacturer will advertise a competitor's figure on their website?????

A ruler in the same picture would be good, and perhaps easier to find than a specific sized cube.

(And how do you know how big the cube is ?)
