Ed's weight / DVD 1 text insert  
Every bio for Ed has his height in it, but I had a tough time finding any info on his weight. Wikipedia says that fans estimate his weight around 175 pounds due to the automail though.

So help me out, and if there's a site/previous thread that can answer this then feel free to show me the link. :) How much would Ed weigh without the automail (and had regular limbs)? I'd estimate 95/100 and that's only because I weigh 85 at 5' (but I am female and don't work out). Would Ed's automail really weigh a gathered sum of 75 (actually, even more if you first subtract the weight he lost of his regular limbs)?

I can't imagine carrying that much extra weight around with me all the time... that's 2 to 3 times the weight a pregnant woman carries around isn't it?

I imagine my own estimates are off though, so please let me know. It's for a RPG thread and general curiousity. ;)


I ordered DVD1 off ebay and am a bit... irked. They didn't include the text insert booklet that all the other dvds came with (and so far haven't answered my inquiries as to why). Does anyone have it scanned somewhere?

There is also the catch that Ed's non-automail wait is missing the weight of an arm and a leg... and our legs actually take up a surprisingly large percentage of our total body weight, due to those thick bones and the tendency to have reasonably well-developed muscles to support our upright postures. So I'd say that Ed probably maxes out at about 100 pounds without automail (although he would weigh significantly more if he had all four limbs.) How much the automail weighs... I couldn't say. However, I'm getting a vague memory of Ed mentioning the weight while complaining about how hot he is while traveling to Xerxes. I think the chapter was somewhere in the 30s.

Weight. Not wait. *smacks forehead* I feel like such an idiot.
