It's an interesting image

because it so clearly shows what is wrong with these new line of lifelike cars – the proportions. I mean, the 2CV is gigantic, or the people are small children pretending to be adults. The geese go well with the car, and so does the pig, but the 3 persons are at least 50% too small compared to the vehicle.

I choose to believe that French people were half the size they are today back in the 60s and 70s.

The centaur human body is too high, but I get why it's that way. You should be able to switch in speedo upper bodies to create females etc. It's a nice looking figure other than the proportions issue.

Well yeah, the figures are really squat. They look good inside the car but actual humans are much skinnier. A car scaled to klickys based on human height would be the height of a klickys shoulder. Which would look super weird.

The pig in the Naruto series is the one that wears the pearl necklace. I think the creators might have been having some fun with the expressions 'painted pig' and 'casting pearls before swine'.

For me, the necklace is too big for the piggie & it just falls off.  :( It's on the clicky so as not to lose it... but I'm sure I will.
