Review

The production company says the miniatures are 28mm scale models. The marine models are 33mm high to the top of their helmets in a combat pose, so they would be probably 35mm high if they were standing upright. If we assume they are 180-185cm high in combat boots and helmet, it makes them 1/52-1/53 scale models, closer to 1/50 than 1/56. I suppose the Xenomorph and Predator models are in scale with the humans.
