You were asked – TMP link

Disney last year announced that their Snow White remake will not have the Seven Dwarves. Peter Dinklage, the well-known actor who is also a Little Person, has called for an end to "outdated stereotypes" in films.

Would you like to see Games Workshop remove Dwarves from its ranges of figures?

60% said "no, do not remove the Dwarves"
23% said "this is ridiculous"
3% said "yes, remove the Dwarves"

GW won't remove them. They can still charge the same as for a human miniature and use 25% less material… ;-)

I'm thinking the legend of dwarves goes back a lot further than GW, Mr. Dinklage and Mr. Disney.

Pretty irrelevant if GW bends the knee on this one.

Actually I think the dwarves are about the same volume, if not more Han a typical human.

Also, hadn't Disney changed the film now, or have they dropped it all together?

Also, who were the 3%?

Reasons?

The 3% were Goblins!

"Actually I think the dwarves are about the same volume, if not more Han a typical human."

Well, yes, the dwarves *are* fatter… ;-)

I resemble that remark! We're "stocky" or possibly "heavy set." "Big boned" will also do.

We will deal with the 3% when the time comes.
