I've been contemplating this question for quite a while. In the great tradition of this site I felt this needed practical verification. I decided to make a ruler based on scaling up set 5005107, LEGO Buildable Ruler to measure the Saturn V myself.

As you say, the figures used in the LEGO Games are called Micro-figures - these appear to be based on LEGO Part 90398 - Minifig Trophy Statuette, while Marcus refers to them as "Tiny Figures" in his video, the press release that is talked about on most of the sites calls them "micro-figures" as well - I guess LEGO can't call them "Nano-Figures" as that would ...
In the blog of Tom Aplhin he mentions regarding Microscale
Steve Oakes, a long-time LEGO builder in Seattle area started a tradition 4 years ago to re-create the BrickCon Public Convention at a smaller scale. His display is called “Micro BrickCon”
(Edit: The conversation between Tom and myself was in a loud room with lots of activity. He is correct about ...
I suggest calling them "trophy figures". Here is my reasoning:
First, we need to understand a key term: Microscale. In Lego terms, microscale means anything smaller than minifig scale. Here is the definition from the Lego MBA Designer Handbook: Kit 2 - Microbuild Designer:
By that definition, both the traditional "microfig" found in the games and a few ...

I've rearranged certain portions of this moc to make a 4 foot square section of Emerald City Comic Con 2016. It's on flickrvid ECCC
This image is from BrickCon 2014 and was taken the night before the public viewing... It was almost set up. Once the other builders added their mocs, it was.
Other answers seem to be focused on stage dimensions, rather than engines as asked in the question, so I'll address that.
Scaling is a pretty easy math. Stud is 8 mm and brick height is 9.6 mm. Given that the entire 100 cm (1000 mm) Saturn V rocket is 125 studs or 104 bricks and half plate high (104.166667).
The real Saturn V is 363.0 ft (110.6 m) tall. ...
On the box the entire rocket is shown to be 100cm. I just measured the first stage, that is 40,7cm.
Else you can go to service.lego.com and download the instructions aand start counting/calculating (the studs face in different directions, so you can't just count).
