So Samus is 6'8" in her armour?

A figure for Samus in her light suit is said to be 1/4 scale and is 20 inches tall. Would that mean that she is 6'8" in her armour? In MP2 there wasn't any height difference whenever you got new suits (at least not any difference that a person could tell) so I'd assume that she'd be the same height in her other suits.

Well, it was stated that she was 6'3" before, and now I guess we know that that 6'3" is her out of her armour.

Didn't Other M retcon her height? And how does the suit add 5 inches?

Her boots could easily add a couple inches, and her helmet could add the rest if it's thick. It's pre-Other M I'm speaking of. It's not that big of a difference when one is not wearing a suit of metal and the other is; it's certainly better than fans trying to say that the 6'3" was Samus in her suit and that it somehow added the difference to her 5' stature in Other M

The other possibility is that there's some rounding going on.

I thought of that, but if one was 6'3" in a suit, I think they would have rounded it to 6' instead. And 18.75" would be better rounded to 19", but to add an extra inch would make it seem unlikely.

Probably rounding in metric.

I always assumed she's like 6'3" in her armor and like 5'8" or 5'9" without it. If you look at her physical build, she's clearly not 191 cm tall (6'3"). Her height looks to be about 170-175 cm or so, I'd say.
