    How Big Is Battle Cat, Compared to Swift Wind?

    There are times, that I look at He-Man sitting on Battle Cat, and think that BC is at least as big a horse. However, that doesn't seem to be the case, when comparing She-Ra on Swift Wind.

    So what do you all think: is BC as big as a Horse (no pun intended)?

    I don't think they always had the size of Battle Cat correct. There are a few stock animation shots (I can't think of the eps off the top of my head) where Battle Cat looks enormous next to He-Man.

    Swift Wind is more slender, but ends up looking bigger due to his wings and longer legs.

    My thoughts exactly!! I always felt like they got the scale for Battle Cat wrong as well. The cartoon shots always make BC look as big as a horse, but the actual toys always have him falling a bit short in the size department.

    I would say that BC is easily as long but lower than Swifty. I can't wait for the inevitable Spirit/SW toy!!! Bring on all the horses!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I couldn't agree more!!

    I've been going through the Filmation series of late, and BC is probably *the* most inconsistently-scaled character, varying from shorter than He-Man's waist, to up to HM's shoulders (to the top of BC's back. Cringer's also afflicted, but not so drastically)
