Great figure, but it appears to be around 100mm tall! The reference to Gygax's, G1: Steading of the Hill Giants, is off-putting. The Human figure appears to be 25mm tall, which means that a 1977 Monster Manual Hill Giant would be all of 54mm tall… I did the math, as I wanted to build a 2.5D model of the Steading, to run a mini's version of G1. Wanted to keep things in proper scale, to see it as Gygax had envisioned it. I used 54mm tall, Cave Men figures for my Hill Giants. They were the cheap, injection-molded, plastic figures from Wal-Mart. They were perfectly scaled, and appropriately clothed, and armed. I suspect Gygax used 54mm Cave Men figures in his game, when he wrote G1.

Anyway, it's a great figure, and if the scale were near 54mm tall for the Giant, it would be perfect for G1. Cheers!
