Hey Guys!
Has anyone recently bought the CTVT 8 inch male bodies? I am wondering if they have improved at all or if they are still all bowlegged and unable to stand as they used to be some years ago. I want to buy a 5 pack but not if they are the same as they used to be.
Any advice from you fellow Megoheads would be appreciated.
Happy New Year all!

the general consensus is that the bodies are much improved over their earlier efforts. However, there has been an issue with the bodies begin strung too tight. The rubber bands on some figures are tight enough to pull the metal hook through the plastic of the shoulder joint.

My recent experience is hit or miss. If you want a body go with Doc Mego's swivel arm body

Ah! Okay thanks guys! I've been told by CTVT that their new China female bodies are great. I'll probably go with Doc Mego though...I don't want to risk getting a bunch of bodies that are all distorted. I had some that were so bad that their legs would cross by themselves!

The leg crossing issue no longer seems to be a problem.

I would question if the 5 pack of bodies are old stock or if they're the new figures. You might end up getting the India bodies.

Not true Boss a couple of my new guys look to have leg issues although still attached to the card the feet pidgen toed on a couple when I went to straiten them you could see stressed body movement in the lower half of the body. But all in all 6 out of the 8 weren't bad

I was thinking the same.

Ah... good to know. I guess it's just less of a problem.

It appears that there is only one new body for sale at CTVT. It is the light brown ones.
I asked them a while back if they were going to have new Caucasian bodies, and the answer was "soon".
I believe if you purchase a 5 pack you will get the old, but slightly improved India bodies that will need restringing.
