I'm having some issues figuring out who is taller in the FMA movie... is it Ed or Al?

The reason being for this is that I'm an inch taller than my partner, and whether I go as Ed or Al will pretty much depend on who owns the height difference.

I havn't watched the movie for a good year or so, but I've watched various clips with both brothers in them and can't seem to figure it out. Some message boards have said Al is taller, where other says Edward beats him by an inch. Any ideas?

This shouldn't really be in this section. It's better off for a discussion in the anime forum.

It's a tough call. Al looks taller in this pic http://media.photobucket.com/image/fma%20movie%20ed%20and%20al/_My_Broken_Wings_/FullMetal%20Alchemist%20FMA/PDVD_130.jpg?o=14
but that could just be because they were both running ^^;

To me it looks like they're veeery close in height XD

I want to know who is taller for cosplay reference, as stated in my original post. I don't believe it's any different than asking the actual colour of a character's eyes or hair. Therefore, I do believe it's completely relevant to the forum.

As insignificant as it may seem, I would ideally like to cosplay the "taller" one, but part of me suspects there won't be a consistent answer to this question if I wasn't able to figure it out myself by comparing clips. :/

I would say Alphonse is a bit taller. He may be the younger brother, but his clothes (and the red jacket) fit him better, he's not swimming in it. And Ed doesn't like milk. I'm sure Al does.

I just checked the movie for a few screenshots of them side by side. It looks to me like Ed is a tiny bit taller than Alphonse. It's hard to figure out though just because the difference is so small. >_< But I applaud you for trying to figure it out for your cosplays!

The torn opinions begin!

I want to believe Al is taller, but something tells me that Ed just might be that much taller. I wonder if we would be better off having one person wear shoes with a bit of a heel to match up closer? I think that might be a good option.

I saw that same one I believe you're referencing... this (http://keysha-chan.deviantart.com/art/FMA-Height-Difference-Comic-29467146), right? I wanted to believe it too, until I found a post on a FMA message board that claimed otherwise.

al is definetly the taller one. If they were the same height, then it wouldn't be funny because ed would be jealous of al.
