being 1/32 scale, do we know how the actual size of this range of figures would interact with 1/35 scale? do they mingle or stand "head & shoulders" above the rest? thanks

Assuming the 1/32 scale figure is an exact 54 mm, and 1/35 scale figures are 2" tall (50mm), that makes the 1/32 figure 5mm taller, or nearly 1/4". If the 1/32 figure is closer to 60mm tall (as many are now), that makes the difference even greater - almost 1/2", or 10mm taller.

That's the old "is it 54mm to the eyes or top of the head" conundrum. Sometimes I really wish they'd do the pictures of the figure next to a ruler.

You can have the occasional really tall guy (6'-6" and taller) and they really stand out in a crowd. If you do that, keep all equipment, weapons, etc. to the same scale - that will make the figure look tall but not out of scale. If the figure in question is an actual historical person, do some research to see approximately how tall he really was (is). If the real person was actually 5'- 5", using a jumbo figure just wouldn't work.
