Shazzdan drew our attention to a very affordable little football/soccer table game on eBay in the Useful Items thread. I follow up on it with an actual mini review, as mine arrived a couple of days ago.

First off, the item is indeed about the right size for 1/6-scale figures (I used a couple of quick TBLeague M33-based kitbashes), so you can put it to good use in casual or everyday dioramas. No, you don't have to get it -- I was just being silly...

The product is about 17 cm (6.75 inches) long, 9.75 cm (3.75 inches) wide, and 2.75 cm (1 inch) tall (including its little legs). To have characters play it in the traditional manner, you would want to elevate it to an appropriate height. The easiest solution is to place it on another 1/6 table (or other type of suitable furniture/container), like the wooden military table I used, which was about 12 cm (4.75 inches) tall.

Everything seems scaled about right, including the handles, which fit relatively easily into most "holding grip" hands. The little metal ball is drawn to either the center or to the goal posts, and by some magical design (I looked for but couldn't find evidence of magnets) once the ball gets into the goal, it gets gently stuck there. To unstuck it, press down gently onto the field surface, and the ball becomes loose again.

Topics tagged under sport on OneSixthFigures Fif0310

The product is light but reasonably sturdy, and except for the little ball, you're not likely to misplace or loose anything. All in all, it is a simple, unpretentious, and very affordable piece, which works very well in 1/6 scale.

If you want one, it is probably easiest to find one on eBay. I got mine from eBay seller happyvalley009 for $3.02 (USD) without any issues.

What do you think?

Sixth Scale Skateboard - Sat 4 May 2019 - 10:21

I recall a discussion from the early days of this not-so-venerable forum, in which members bemoaned the fact that most "sixth-scale" skateboards were undersized or otherwise improperly scaled for most of the figures in this scale. Although I am not at all knowledgeable about skateboards, I do like to pick up items for everyday scenes and came across something that looked promising. It is being sold on eBay by several sellers as an unbranded sixth-scale skateboard; I got mine for $6 (USD) from yy_store17, who had it listed as "1/6 Scale Male Female Scooter scene model For 12" Acrion Figure Doll Toys" (sic!). It comes in a transparent plastic bag with a colorful but unspecific design on the end that simply says "Toys."  (NOTE: other sellers' listings for the same product include a photo of the underside that shows a different, mostly yellow design; as far as I can tell that was replaced or covered up by the mostly blue design you see here -- the yellow shows through at one end.)

I did a little bit of research, and here is how the skateboard compares to average 1:1 skateboards. They range in width between 18 and 27 cm and in length between 71 and 84 cm (again, on average). This 1:6 skateboard is 4.5 cm wide by 14 cm long, which puts it close to the upper limits of the average 1:1 skateboards when adjusted for scale. Anything longer than that (though usually narrower) would have made it a longboard. At any rate, the product is certainly not undersized for 1:6 scale.

Topics tagged under sport on OneSixthFigures Tsb0210

The 1:6 skateboard features functional, rolling red wheels, and an elaborately decorated underside with spider web patterning, a dramatically damaged skull, and painted drops of blood (as part of the art, not weathering).

Topics tagged under sport on OneSixthFigures Tsb0310

The top side of the skateboard has a yellow rim and within it is glued down a piece of black sandpaper, which presumably helps provide your figures a sure footing.

Topics tagged under sport on OneSixthFigures Tsb0410

Without being really knowledgeable about skateboards, I find nothing really problematic here, except maybe this: the rather solid supports for the wheels make it rather difficult to have your figures hold the skateboard in what is apparently called the mall-grip (see below).

Topics tagged under sport on OneSixthFigures Tsb0510

As usual when showcasing such products, I have kept things simple and avoided any visual trickery and special effects. But you can achieve more dynamic and impressive skateboarding scenes, especially if you resort to dynamic stands, some tape, and photo editing.

Topics tagged under sport on OneSixthFigures Tsb0610

While a relatively simple affair, the 1:6 skateboard appears to be a fully functional and properly scaled piece that can be put to effective use for the protagonists or extras of any modern scene or diorama.

I hope this has been helpful. What do you think?

Kitbash UFC Champion Forrest Griffin - Fri 1 Jun 2018 - 9:28

The Head Conversion Tutorial inspired me to embark upon another little kitbash project I have been intending for awhile now. There are these cool little 6 inch (15 cm) UFC Ultimate Collector figures, with cartoonish proportions but pretty realistic head sculpts, which seemed to me almost suitable for using with sixth-scale bodies. I wondered about it and eventually bought a couple. I intended to do Michael Bisping (and still will), but the one that really grabbed my attention was Forrest Griffin (perhaps because his mug reminds me of a friend from undergrad). Although in some ways it is a very simple kitbash, I really wasn't sure whether it would work out. I was pleasantly surprised by the result.

That said, this is still a Work in Progress (among other things, I might repaint the head, although my lights do exaggerate the mismatch a little). I matched the shorts to one type worn by Forrest Griffin and replicated the logo (although it is not really very visible), and based the photos on actual photos of the real guy.

The original figure:

Can we/should we try this?

Considering the difference in figures, this does seem to work surprisingly well...
