Collecting both lines I would have to say Marvel Select is much bigger.

Yeah, I got Juggernaut, Abomination, Thanos, Sabretooth and Magneto and they tower over the MOTUC guys. Especially Abomination. He's a monster. I got him next to Gygor and they are basically the same size.

I have a few MS figures and the scale tends to vary on those. Some are in scale with MOTU and some not so much. Yet somehow they are usually in scale with each other. Weird. If you have any certain figures in particular that you want side-by-side pictures of, I can take some.
I have atleast these MS-figures:
- Emma Frost
- Black Widow
- Thor (JMS version)
- The Watcher
- some Skrulls and Broods.
Heidi could you take a picture of a few of the girls next to he-man and teela and one of the more regular sized guys next to them too? Thor I assume is made to be a bit hulking, I"m mostly trying to figure out if regular human sized characters like gambit and the girls will fit in.
Mostly the females and the more normal sized humans like gambit. The hulking figures I'm not worried about as it makes sense for them to be bigger. Just wondering what the smallest sized figures look like.

I have the troll and he looks awesome! Don't have a pic right now, but he's about the same size as Gy-Gor and he works well in battles that my kids have with MOTUC. If you can find him, get him... really cool!
I will NEVER believe that Mermista beheaded Mer-Man! You sit on a throne of lies.... and smell of beef and cheese, bio writer!!!!
As you can maybe see in the picture, Black Cat is pretty much in scale with Teela, but Black Widow and Cloak seem a bit out of scale compared to her (atleast in my eyes they do).
I haven't purchased any figures/beasts to go with my collection however have picked up some playsets/dioramas whcih fit quite well.
From the Lord of the Rings minature line I have Sarumans playset which works as a great background for Hordak. I also purchased the Helms Deep Castle which is a good castle wall background.
As some others have said - Harry Potter Slime pit is great for the Snakemen.
As far as current retail available lines go, I have looked and I haven't seen much. Thundercats 8 is too big, Thundercats 6 is too small, Young Justice is too small, DCU is too small, Marvel Legends are either too big or too small, WWE seems to be "about" the same size. I would love to be pointed in the right direction of more that I may be missing. Please keep sending ideas, this is a great thread.
I actually have the 8 inch Lion-o and Tygra with my MOTUC heroes- I think they look ok. They're giant cat people, so who's to say that they shouldn't be a foot taller? I think they look ok scalewise.

This is our story. These are our heroes…
Today I picked up Skaar and Maestro from Marvel Legends line and Ares from the Wonder Woman line to augment my Fighting-Foe-Men.
Hey ! That Goro figure looks cool ! When was it released ?
2-3 years ago. Wish he were a lot bigger, but he's still cool as a stand alone toy.
The design, gimmick, colors all blend in nicely. This would have been a good candidate for a TRU repaint.

Goro aint got nothin' on a master of the universe!
I'm still not sold on that symbol, but that's a pretty cool looking He-Man!
i currently have the raziel soulrevear sitting in my castle greyskyll and ive got to admit the design fits in with the barbarian sides of motuc, previously i used the captain simian figures but apart from gormungus who i never got they are a little out of scale
when your world turns upside down, laugh at the people standing on their heads!
One thing I like about Mattel's WWE heads is they fit perfectly on the MOTUC pegs after you heat them up.
