Since they have come up in posts once or twice, and I just received my B set at last (it was sold out or perhaps simply unavailable when I originally tried to order it months ago), here is a mini review of the sixth-scale chairs and table sets A and B, available from various sellers on eBay. These are listed as unbranded, but the listings are sometimes titled Hot Figure Toys -- I don't know whether that is supposed to be the name of a company, or just an attempt to get noticed on searches for Hot Toys action figures.

Each set includes two chairs and a table. Example eBay listing: HERE

Style A is a what I would consider a more traditional Chinese style, with more rectangular and horizontal shapes and intricate woodwork on the chair's back and armrests and the lower surface of the table. On the whole it is more elaborate and detailed than style B.

Style B seems a bit simpler and more modern to me, with a curved one-piece back and armrest to the chair. I cannot be certain that these are made of real wood, but they do look like miniaturizes wooden furniture.

The tables are both just over 8.5 cm (3.33 in) tall and about 6 x 6 cm (2.36 in) wide. The seat of both types of chairs is at 6.5 cm (2.56 in) from the bottom; the chairs from set A are 13 cm (5.12 in) tall and 7 x 8 cm (2.75 x 3.15 in) wide; the chairs from set B are 13.5 cm (5.3 in) tall and about 6 x 7.5 cm (2.36 x 2.95 in) wide.

Although a little bit short and a little bit narrow, the chairs and table work pretty well with most sixth-scale action figures. Particularly muscular or tall bodies would have a harder time sitting naturally in them.

The options for sixth-scale furniture are not endless, especially considering the variety of furniture types that could be made or desired. These can work nicely, even if they (especially set A) clearly represent a particular style. I think they make a useful addition to my collection.

I hope you found this useful.
