In front of him are two (assumed) young-ish, white American women. Average height for them is about 5’5”, though there’s a shorter one in the back and they could be wearing heels— let’s play it safe and assume the tops of their heads are around 5’6”.
Oncie is at least a head taller than them. He is about seven and a half heads tall.
Therefore, (slightly less than) 6.5 Oncie heads = about 5’6”, or 66 inches.
Oncie’s head is therefore a little over ten inches. This makes him 76 inches tall, or… 6’4”.
2012 Once-ler is about six feet and four inches tall. Think about that.
This motherfucker is goddamn PROUD of being huge, so he gets a tophat that is LITERALLY BIGGER THAN HIS HEAD.
Yeah I’d say that thing adds like a foot, and that’s not even factoring in his fancy new shoes adding half an inch or so.
I read a post somewhere that was saying how Once-ler seems quite aware of his size and is very expressive with his body, particularly his arms and legs— what with the dancing, the guitar, always manhandling the Lorax and the barbaloots, etc. Not sure where the post is, but it’s true— and he’s just as animated when angry.
He’s also decently strong: sure, it’s cartoon physics, but so far we’ve seen him stand there talking to his mom while a grown-ass man hangs off of him as if it’s nothing, chop down and drag a HUGE tree to where he needed it, hardly seeming to notice the weight of his ax (yeah, you heard that loud thunk when he dropped it on the barbaloot, it’s sold wood and metal), set up a goddamn HOUSE on his own, hold a small-pig-sized pile of orange pudginess at arm’s length as if he’s a pillow, and oh yeah, in a deleted scene he pulled his own wagon FULL OF SHIT for what was implied to be a fairly long distace.
Almost 7 and a half feet of that shit stomping down the stairs toward me, yelling about how he’s done nothing wrong and making huge, sweeping gestures with those (fairly strong) arms?
I’d be pretty intimidated too, Lorax.
Kudos to you for wanting to fuck with this guy at all.
