Great BLOG you have got there!

What is the minifig scale?

Is it 1/32, 1/35, 1/48 or ?

And, the brick it self, in in connection with above…

Thank you very much in advance.

A minifigure has odd proportions that do not exactly match one scale.  This is also true of sets featuring minifigures.  They have been and are designed in a variety of scales.

Please check out this interesting article regarding the original development of the minifigure by Jens Nygaard Knudsen:
