I broke down and bought a MASK figure to test scale... it wasn't successful.

Too bad. Looks closer than Playmobil.

I'd like to see a mate beside one of the smaller BSG figures that came with the Mattel vehicles. They are said to be 1.5"

Good to know. Thanks for sharing the knowledge.

And with Minimates it's not just about scale but proportion. These block figures tend to be a little husky for some vehicles and short for others. The exaggerated, squat proportions of lines like Star Wars Galactic Heroes or Mission Fleet might work better.

😂 I’m going to have to block you if you keep giving me these great suggestions!!! My wallet can’t take it!

The Playmobil Enterprise got me thinking about an old bridge set I saw once, but I don't recall who produced it... does anyone know of another ST bridge model or replica in this scale? It would have been just the bridge. I want to say it was something weird like Hallmark.

I think that’s the pinmates one I have. It’s pretty good.

That's definitely the AMT model kit. The Pin Mate set has less detail.

Either way, it looks like either would work well!

And another question, possibly asked/answered in the archives somewhere:

Is there a classic Galileo in good scale with MiniMates? This Playmates version likely has a chair(s) that is/are too big:

I have both the Pin Mates set (GREAT Minimates scale) and I used the Star Trek Trivial Pursuit Galileo for my ST mates. 

The Galileo did not open (it opens on top to store some cards) so it wasn't a vehicle proper, but it scaled decent for pics/dios and such. As close as you're likely to get.

The Pin Mates set was perfect scale. You'd have to do some modification to get the Captain's chair that's already in there out, though. It scales nicely. I added some Trek seats from the Mega Construx Enterprise Bridge set that way every other crew member could sit.

I don't have photos, everything is in storage and it would take me ages to dig them out. So you'll have to take my word for it.

Five Below selling funko Minis from What If. For 5 bucks, hard to pass up this Ultron. Not blind boxes so you know who you’re buying. Selling them on their website too. The Watcher What If is a chase and would work well too but I didn’t see any.
