Now here is something I ran into at US Toy, 1:32 scale firefighters (assuming every firefighter in the United States is 6 feet tall). Search for "firefighter"
The plastic figures are 2.25 inches tall and are in various poses. They are pre-painted. However, they will need some color adjustment to some of the equipment.
All in all, not a bad purchase for around $6.00 for a dozen!
