I was reading his Patreon and he's doing some kind of 3D thing involving ball jointed dolls, and they needed to have costumes made for them and that kinda takes time.

That's the scale, but the doll is nothing like those. And it just occured to me that I had a BJD back in the 1960s, but we called them GI Joes.

If GI Joe were 1/6 scale, we'd have had an army of 5' 6" dwarves...

The original G.I. Joes (and soon after, Action Man, in England) were 12" tall... so supposing a 1/6 scale, we'd be talking 6' tall soldiers, not 5'6"...

Hmmm - thought they were eleven inches, like Barbie and Ken...

Speaking of which:

Too bad they used Van Halen's mediocre cover instead of the superior Kinks original...

and

I didn't know this one existed,,,

Don't forget, Wapsi Square is active in many arenas; FB is one, (but I haven't logged into Facebook in so long...)

https://www.reddit.com/r/WapsiComic/com ... d3/tension

Reddit is another, and a kind person posts new entries there pretty regular.

IIRC, a dwarf has to be under 4'8" (142cm) as an adult. (I knew a girl who was four foot eight AND A QUARTER! {Emphasis hers} :lol: )

My cousin was shorter than that...

So the definition requires them to be able to lie crosswise between the rails?

I couldn't think of any other word; "midget" seems inappropriate.

Big Jim (of which my brother had one - I had the G.I.Joe), was only 10 inches tall.

Wrapping around to the original post, there are pinups of Nadette and Mindy on his Patreon that are quite imaginative.

How about "Slightly shorter than average for the day"?

FYI Paul has new merch available, a line of Devil Gal branded T-shirts. Announced on Patreon today but I don't know when non-patrons will get access.
