I agree with most folks here have said and for the same reason. Whatever height and build Nick Castle was when he played The Shape is the size Michael Myers is in my mind. He originated the character's movements and size, and he was the definition of the character for most people. While I don't really have a problem with Mane's portrayal of the character, (that's not to say I like the movie, or the interpretation, but solely his portrayal...) his size is better suited to a character like Jason in my opinion.

Well the screen can make things look larger than they really are, so no set height is necessarily; but 6'2"-6'4" would be a perfect height translatable to real life. Tall, but not abnormally so, the kind of tall that blends in with other folks. Where I'm from this kind of height isn't really that abnormal.

I don't really think its necessarily the size, but how they portray the character. THAT is what might make him intimidating and scary 8)

I agree.... but as stated just above, size does come into play for most people. I'm 6' 2" and an avid weightlifter. I weigh 232 lbs. When I put on the coveralls at my height with broad shoulders, it does have an impact on people. When they are looking slightly up at me in most cases, and you throw my size in there, not to mention the great Myers costume, it's an overall attack of intimidation.

At my size, if a guy at 5' 9" and 190 lbs came at me wearing just about anything, Michael Myers mask or not, it wouldn't really bother me. (Not that I'm Hercules mind you.... okay.... I'm Hercules :D) I'm sure there are many guys that size walking the planet who could whoop my @$$, but that initial fear and intimidation factor because of his physical presence would be missing.

Maybe that's part of Michael's strategy though... lure them in with a smaller body frame, then shock the crap out of them with super human strength. :lol:

I think about my size or bigger would be ideal, because it could provide more of a universal intimidation. There are a lot of guys my height out there.

aaahhh, my question is still working :-)

great opinions guys, but i see that the most of you go with the original version. like some other members posted, nick castle IS the very first Michael. So i guess 5'10'' is perfect. Puuhh, so i'm happy 'cause i am at the same height :-)

But that is only my opinion. Every Michael Myers actor did a hell of a job ;-)

Thank you. Whenever I've watched the Halloween films The Shape always seemed taller to me than the actors portraying him (due in no small part to how small most actors are), so my perception was always larger; and considering I'm in the upper echelon of the height range I gave that perception would translate to around my height. I also don't want to perceive of a 5'11" Shape that's as tall as my mom was; perception's a big thing to me when thinking of The Shape's size, as the reality of the character is more malleable than in solid ground.

And I believe that's what is so great about the Shape, everyone can remember him as they want. But I have to be honest about it, I was 5'7 since fitth grade(making everyone including me thinking I was going to be very tall) until this year and I finally grew to a whopping 5'8. And I know from fights that my height is never intimidating(which can be an advantage in the sports world), for me to try and justify it is silly lol. But it is nice to know that the second guy, Mr. Warlock, to potray the shape was around my height, and due to his age is my height now. So at least us short guys will always have that.

Medium height. between 5'10 and 6'0. Turning him into a towering oaf is one of the many things I hated about Rob Zombie's Halloween. One of my favorite movie villains is Clarence Boddicker from Robocop, he looks just like a regular, average guy but he's evil to the bone.

Very true, my man. But he's also very WIDE. The man is 230 lbs. Strip away 60 pounds of muscle, and it'd make a big difference.

Yeah he,s a big SOB LOL! Hey I was just watching a interview and the guy was joking with Dick Warlock about his height and Dick said he was 6 ft with the big heels they had on his boots? His Jungle boots were actually the small sole 1966 style so maybe they put something in em?

Castle and Durand portrayed Myers better than anyone in my opinion, so i'd say between 5'10" - 6" or around there.

Durand's Myers, but not Durand's actual size.

In the film they make him look shorter, more on a par with Jamie Lee. I like that. Average height. H1 Michael (the general build across all who played him), Warlock and Durand are my favourites.
