Armin doesn’t look that much shy of 5’6” in the above pic!

He certainly ain’t 7 inches shorter than Rob!

He looked 5’4” range on Seinfeld, weirdly enough. Click Here
But I’m sure he isn’t really that short as he looks 5’5.5” w/ Rob here.

⭐ There's a song by psychedelic rock group Hawkwind called 'Quark, Strangeness and Charm'.

Whenever I hear it, I can't help but think of this little fellow!

πŸŽ‚πŸŽ Happy 7️⃣0️⃣th Birthday Armin! πŸŽπŸŽ‚

Wishing my favourite Ferengi a happy, food-filled BIG 7-0!

⭐ In case you're not in the know, Ferengis are extremely fond of food, and they love having their ears tickled! Hence Quark the amorous Ferengi works as a cook. πŸ±πŸ˜‹

⭐ The Ferengis are a short, huge-eared alien race, and are very materialistically-minded! πŸ€‘

Maybe I missed something but from what I saw, Armin is the only celebrity with whom Jenny's photo is from 2005. Rob, was he the first celebrity you or Jenny met in person and took a photo together?
Editor Rob
I met Armin in 2005 at one event in Birmingham, Jenny met him that year at another event.

I didn't know Jenny then.

Rob, why did he claim 5'1 1/8"? Was it just a joke to emphasize the fact that he's short?
Editor Rob
yeah Christian, he seemed to be joking.

I think I've come across this guy maybe a dozen times now, in stores, at the theater, walking on the street. I'd peg him at 5'5'' maximum.

He was wearing heels wasn't he?
Editor Rob
no, just normal shoes.

He looks like a Ferengi even outside of his costume

Much better!
Lorne said on 7/Jul/13
No way this guy is five foot six looks barely taller than Sarah Michelle Gellar, and you look nearly 3 inches taller than him! Maybe 5ft5.5 peak...
dicksock said on 5/Jul/13
I'd say he's more like 5'5".
Editor Rob
he pretty much is 5ft 5 at least recently I saw him and thought that, whether he has lost a bit of height?
Peyman-6ft said on 14/Feb/13
to me this guy more looks like a university teacher than an actor . LOL
lorne said on 12/Oct/11
Man, I love this site.Nevr thought I'd get to see a height listing for the ferengi!!! But who was he on Buffy???
Editor Rob
he was a school principal for a few years.

I saw him a few weeks ago and he really looked 5ft 5 today.

I think that he is peak was 5'6". He was tall for a ferengi in Deep Space Nine.
Charles said on 5/Jan/11
He looked much shorter on Buffy - shorter even than Alyson Hannigan, who couldn't have been taller than 5'3"-5'4" at the time.

5ft5.5 is quite tall for a Ferengi. Aron Eisenberg is only 5ft0.
robin said on 24/Nov/08
There's no way he is 5'6''. He looked tiny on Buffy - he was even shorter than Alyson Hannigan who's only about 5'4''.
sf said on 24/Jan/07
Hard to say, since he's leaning, but no doubt he looks like a Ferengi, HU-MANNNN...
TNTinCA said on 23/Jan/07
Man, even without the makeup, he STILL looks like a Ferengi! :-)
Bev said on 13/Sep/06
Rob - where is your photo of him and why haven't you put up all the other Star Trek photos like Robert Picardo and Marina Sirtis you showed me?

Next to Terry Farrell, no idea what kind of footwear:

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.

Other vital statistics like weight or shoe size measurements have been sourced from newspapers, books, resumes or social media.
