I was originally going to make a follow-up to an earlier post with more pictures of giants, but I decided to abbreviate it by only listing the female giants.
The first giant is Yephima the Female Cloud Giant by Reaper (Bones 77162). I was a bit disappointed by this particular figure, and it wasn't just because of the pose.
It was one of my first Bones figures, and it really made me wonder if I would get any more figures from this line if a metal version of the same existed. The details are soft, some toes are missing from her left foot, and part of her headdress was short-shot. The missing toes seem to be fairly common on this figure, so I purchased another one from a brick & mortar store in order to make sure that I had a figure with all of her toes.
Because of my experience with Yephima, I went with metal for these Reaper giants - Svetlana the Frost Giant Princess (Dark Heaven Legends 03431) and Vanja the Fire Giant Queen (Dark Heaven Legends 03168), even though the Bones version were a lot less expensive.
The next two giants were sculpted by Julie Guthrie. The first is Decapatited from Dark Ages Miniatures (BooBarians TIT-1), and the second is Frulla Krung from Reaper (Dark Heaven Legends 02622).
A modified version of the [OOP] BooBarian figure is now produced by Impact Miniatures as part of their Elfball Valkyrie team. She has lost her axe, but is now wearing a top.
The final picture is of smaller giants arranged from largest to smallest. They include the Ral Partha Female Giant (All Things Dark and Dangerous 02-902), Half Giant Female (Dark Sun 11-709), a female hill giant from the Grenadier Hill Giants boxed set (Dragon Lords 3505), and a Iron Wind Metals Female Giant (Arcana Unearthed 67-007).
