Hope the mods don't mind but I wanted to start another thread now that the Z-Bodies are actually in stock. For those of you who want to place an order simply email me (orders@zicatoys.com) the quantity needed, your zip code or country, and your PayPal email address. Once I have that information you will be sent a PayPal invoice to complete the order.

I notice that this Z-Body is labeled as "Muscular". Does this mean that there will be different body types in the future? Slender or Fat, Tall or Short, Etc? Also, after your inventory runs out, how long do you think it will be before these can be restocked. I got a feeling these are going to do really well!

Is there anybody out there that makes a ball-joint to Mego neck-plug for connecting a ball-joint style head to a Mego or Zica style body? Is that something Zica could maybe develop for their Build a Figure line? I'm thinking seriously about a custom that would require this type of component. Check this out:
Head for 5-8 Action Figure (http://www.thatsmyface.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.ilvm_grey.tpl&product_id=65&category_id=5&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=33&vmcchk=1&Itemid=33)

Yes, the plan is to have different body types available at some point. The next body produced will be the female body. Once the inventory runs out it will probably take two months to restock.

$10.00 plus S&H.

A ball joint neck adapter will be available at some point, hopefully soon. This was actually discussed when the body was early in development.

Dude, I am seriously drooling over the sight of these babies!

I can just imagine the possibilities of these figures, and I cannot WAIT to see how the female figure turns out.

That looks amazing.

Hope to see some more pics of these guys in action. Would love to see a Z-body side by side with a Mego and a Castaway.

I've learned quite a bit through this last experience so from here on out I don't think getting things done will be as difficult. This is assuming I still have my sanity left after the Buck Rogers figures are done. :googly:

Lookin' forward to getting these!

Oh, BTW, when you get around to making the accessories, I'd love to see some tall black boots for the female figures.

I recently put a pair of Breyer riding boots on one of my Dinah's and they fit perfectly.

We need more boot options for our girls besides Doc and CTVT.

The Breyer boots are good for BSG customs (as long as you don't look too closely. LOL!) and I'd like to see more of them.

When the time comes for me to start compiling a list of accessories to make I'll be asking for a lot of feedback from forum members. I can't go too crazy at first but I want to be sure I start with items that I know there is a high demand for.

Do you have a planned out eta schedule for your other products Craig? ...or are you taking it easy, and seeing how each step...each release...is met? I'm asking as I'm kinda curious as to when the female bodies are planned to be out? After wave one of Buck I'm guessing.

Everything is on hold until I see how well the first wave of Buck Rogers figures sell, and by first wave I'm talking about Buck and Tigerman. If sales are strong I will start work on other projects which include a few things I can't mention just yet, the female body, and Buck Rogers series 2 figures.

I know the female body will be a big hit! I am waiting for it because I have a ton of female customs that need a good body. I am sure other people are doing the same thing. Get them going!!!!!

Thanks!

Buck and Tigerman are expected to ship around July 15th and once that happens I'll start taking preorders.

Cool. So it sounds like you're shipping flat rate priority. So if someone were to buy 2 or 3 Bodies...shipping would still be $7.00?

Not necessarily. I've been able to ship 2 bodies to some locations for $7.00 but not 3.

Two Z-Bodies just landed at Puerto Rico, the shining star at the caribbean... I don't mean to put pressure on anyone but these are the undoubtly the best Mego Like body out there right now! No contest! If you are thinking about getting this, do so! You can't go wrong with Zica.

A gorgeous new Mego style body just arrived in England! STUNNING!!! Very much 'Old School' in certain areas but 21st Century in others. This is a top class piece that I can't recommend enough for customisers. Can't wait to use it. Perhaps even beating the quality of the figure is quality of the service I got. I see some of the posts here with people talking about ordering from guys who won't reply or send goods and then page after page of lame *** excuses and stuff but Craig at Zica is an absolute class act. Communications were amazing even before I spent a dollar with him. I bought just one body yet was treated as if I'd bought 100. He told me he posted it Saturday and now less than a week gone by it's here for a very cheap price too. This is how to build a good reputation. Count me in for more of your product please. THANK YOU!!!!!!!

I just made my Paypal payment for two of the bodies.
Judging from the images posted to these forums, there are a few things I like about these bodies:
-The lighter flesh tone looks like it will blend better with the Mego WGSH heads.
-The bodies are a little taller than the standard mego size. Very 'superhero-esque'.
-How the swivel on the upper arms blends in with the bicep. I've notice other swivel designs display a circular 'crease' under tighter bodysuits.

Based on what I 've seen and read, these may turn out to be my new favorite custom body types.:yes:

on wed there was a knock on my door, when i answered, there was a ninja standing there and he held out a package for me. a package filled with Z-bodies. i asked the ninja "sir." i said " why are you delivering packages" he went on and told me a story of how Craig saved the life of his ninja master, and he was following an old custom called an honor debt. i waved goodbye to the ninja as he vanished in a puff of smoke. but i finally knew how craig managed to ship so quickly all over the world!! NINJA'S!!!!

thanks for the quick shipping craig i love the z bodies im in the process of moving over all my figures to them right now. ill get pics when im done. i really apperciate the great customer service all that jazz!

Glad to hear the bodies arrived fast. So far I've found that ninjas are definitely the most reliable source for getting things shipped quickly. :smile:
