Monarch Jekyll and Hyde
« on: November 09, 2017, 05:26:09 PM »
Just finished the Monarch Jekyll and Hyde. Working on the Dracula now. A little confused because I thought these 2 models were Canadian releases of Monster Scenes that didn't make it to America but the Dracula was incorporated in the Monsters Of The Movies series. I originally wanted to put Hyde and Dracula in the Dungeon model and make a diorama but they are out of scale. They are not Monster Scenes scale but Monsters of the Movies scale which is 1/12 as compared to 1/13. I was a little surprised especially some of the artwork on the box has them in the dungeon. So I am going to have to make them stand alone models.

Steve great job on the MS Hyde.But answer your question they are 1/12 scale when Aurora switch them over to the MOTM line they stayed the same scale the Ghidorah and Rodan is 1/13 scale.Trev has a section on his site dedicated to the MOTM Line and MS line with history on them.My site fits fine with the Dungeon and the Animal pit.Trev's MS link is here http://www.tylisaari.com/models/gallery/ms/ms.htm

Mine also fit fine with the Monster Scenes stuff.
The scale was never changed.

the Ghidorah and Rodan is 1/13 scale.

Wow! How big are those Ghidorah and Rodan kits if they are 1/13 scale!? Must be big as a house!

That would make Ghidorah about 6 ft. tall!  :laugh:

That's interesting your models fit with the Dungeon. Hydes' head was about 1/4" too tall for the opening between the 2 sections of the trap door side and the side on the left. I am going to have to recheck this but I think I will keep the 2 as stand alone models. I was going to use the Dungeon as a "base" for the Gruesome Goodies anyway. I didn't just want the lab parts sitting around with no base.

None of the figures fit under the arch of the dungeon. I just tested Dr Deadly and he doesn't, and as I recall he's the shortest of them. Keep in mind the dungeon was still a prototype. I just imagine they had to crouch down to get into the room.

Thanks for the info. Maybe as a prototype they didn't have it to scale at the time and they would adjust that before production. I didn't think of that.  Dr. Deadly is the shortest of the group so if he does't fit none will.

So what if one figure is about 8 1/2% bigger than the other! Real life isn't to scale. People come in a very wide range of sizes. And Christopher Lee's Dracula was over 6'5" tall while Bela Lugosi's may just have been in the six feet area!

The size difference of the figures didn't matter to me it was just I had planned to display them in the dungeon but they are too tall for it.
