Thing is, a modified body with a little more detail wouldn't be bad (a clavicle on the chest would be nice, as long is it isn't horribly bony like Mattel's), but I don't really want something too far afield from the original Mego look; what I'm looking for is something that complements the original figures. If I want to leave them as is, I'd like the retro inspired figures to fit in with the old Megos. If I want them for custom fodder, I definitely need them to be as much like the old figures as possible (no desire to switch a few hundred figures to new bodies to match, and that's not even really possible in some cases; I don't even know how I put my Lightning Lad together after all these years, much less how to take him apart ). I'm a life-long Mego fan, and that's pretty much the main market they are catering to here; the original 8" Megos still look really good in a properly made costume. and capture the 70's Neal Adams/Jim Aparo/Irv Novick/etc super hero look dead on. I just want to be able to say the same about the FTC figures, which I often can't, sadly.

^^^ I do agree that the mattel body has knee issues, but the neck is a lot better than the frightened turtle look of the FTC bodied Batgirl that Teemu posted. the Mattel body also solves some of the bigheadedness of the FTC figure too.
