You were asked – TMP link

The style of some figure lines includes the use of heads which are out of proportion to their bodies. Does this bother you, or do you like this style?

Undersized ones do too.

The foibles of sculpting heads separately from their bodies, and not checking to see that they match, from time to time.

I see it more in the 10mm and 6mm than in the 15mm. It seems the smaller the figure, the larger (proportionately) the head.

no it doesn't bother me. I don't buy such figures.

Technically, the answer should be no, for everyone.

If heads and features were at true scale/proportion, they wouldn't be able to be sculpted or cast or seen.

But…I know what was meant.
