Tim Gould is an awesome man, who has done a lot of research on what the perfect minifig scale is. The conclusion? There is none! Our beloved figures are chubby, have big heads and short arms. The best you can do is to pick a scale and approximate from there. But that's boring, and hard, with lots of maths and stuff! Yeah, we know - so Tim put together an interactive scaler, which Linus polished up and put on Swooshable. Voila! Easy minifig scaling, both visual and numerical!
