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?

I always assumed that the reason the recovery time for his automail surgery was so long to begin with was because he would have to learn to carry the extra weight around. Like, maybe recovery for the surgery itself was only a couple of months, but physical therapy/adjustment to the automail/whatever you want to call it--basically, training his body to be able to actually stand up and walk around and do normal things--would take many more months (this would explain why he would have any room for negotiating the time frame). Still, I agree with the person above who said that, since the automail is in place of missing limbs, the weight of which have to be subtracted from the overall estimate, 175 lbs is probably too high a # for Ed's weight.
