If so, is the suit any less baggy on the Type S? Also, how would you switch the purple hands to the Type S body? Could this be done without destroying the FTC arms?

I brought up some stuff when trying to switch FTC to Type S in this thread:

My Riddler suit fit fine, but Joker's was way too tight so I didn't switch. Also, the heads don't fit perfectly because the depth of the neck plug isn't long enough on the new FTC heads.

Thanks, I have some Type S bodies on the way. How did you remove the Riddler hands off the FTC body, just pull it off?

Yes. But you'll have to swap the pins, or find another solution to fit them on the Type S.

I put mine in hot water first.

Thanks, I've never tried it so I am sure I'd ruin the figure. If I like the Type S body I'll probably wait and see if they produce purple hands. Hate how stiff and tight the bands makes the bodies on the FTC figures but love the job they've done on the clothes.

I switched all my first wave to the Doc's swivel arm muscle bodies and they look great. The second wave seems much better.

Thanks for the feedback, I was hoping the bodies might have improved after the first wave. Getting Wave 2 tomorrow.

BTW I got Wave 2 in yesterday and some Type S bodies. I only opened Dick Grayson, and his head was very loose on the FTC body right out of the package. Surprisingly, I switched him to a Type S body and the head is tight as a drum, so it worked out perfectly.

I also switched Batman to a Type S and as someone (I think it was Iron Mego) mentioned, his head is loose, if you turn a few times it will come out. Also on the Type S body Batman's belt does ride slightly lower, but the hips are wide, it really makes the figure look weird. Will probably swap Bats back to the FTC body.

But I cannot wait to put Superman on a Type S body with fists for that SuperFriends pose :wink_y:
