Hasbro only began releasing new 12-inch (30 cm) G.I. Joe figures in 1991 and continued doing so for a while before quitting the 1/6th scale line completely. It was in 1999 that Dragon Models Limited (Dragon or DML for short), a Hong-Kong-based manufacturer introduced the 1:6 scale New Generation Life Action Figure series which were way better than what Hasbro ever offered and reignited the 1/6th scale hobby with a boom! The hobby of collecting 1:6 scale figures have not looked back since even though Dragon the company that started all this has gone quietly into the night, disappearing from the scene just like Hasbro did because newer players were offering much better stuff.
I've amassed quite a 1:6 scale figure collection since the days of Hasbro and Dragon. I actually bought vintage 12-inch Action Man figures back in 1995 because way back then there just weren't any 1:6 scale figure being made. It's great to see how large the market has grown and now we are just bombarded with so many choices and options that we get to pick and choose what we want. But do we really want 1:4 scale figures? For me personally, there's just no space for quarter scale figures because they are just too BIG! I like the variety available in 12-inch action figures and the size is just right for displaying and collecting.

Coo Model will also be releasing a HD001 1/4th scale Body-HD (18 inch) which will consists of: Body, Hand type x 7, Feet and Connector x 2. You can tell how much bigger 1:4 scale is compared to 1:6 from the two comparison pictures posted above and below. Certainly not my cup of tea.
