Action figures come in many different sizes. These sizes are commonly referred to as action figure scales, which is the relationship in size of the toys to the normal sized object. In this case, action figure manufacturers use the standard size of a human as six feet. So, when you talk about scales and size ratios, they are based on this six-foot model. Example, a 1:1 scale Darth Vader figure is six feet tall, whereas a 1:2 scale Darth Vader figure would be three feet tall.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Star Wars Franchise.
