I see now that some of the newer Heroclix figures are in a new, larger size.

Is there a listing for these ranges, or some other notation on them, so I'll know about that in advance?

A lot of the old WotC and Heroclix figs seems to run in the 32 – 36mm to the eyes sizes, with 28mm – 32mm/34mm for females, in many cases.

I've run across some singles of late that I've bought that are now 40mms to their eyes from the soles of their feet, like Diana Prince walking – AKA Wonder Woman in civilian clothing.

The scale crewp wariness of the things that put me off Heroclix in the end.

As far as I can tell, most are about the same size, but the latest releases seem to be about 10% taller.

Looking down on them from above, or from above and to the side, I don't find that to be too noticeable, but side on it is.

A 10% difference is the same as a 5'10" average height person, and a 6'5" one within the realm of possibility, but if the 6'5 one is female and you have mainly 5'10" males, that IS a bit less believable.

Perhaps it does work in Wonder Woman's case though, since IIRC she is supposed to be an Amazon warrior.
