It has already been proven the body swap makes the female proportions much better and a more natural looking
In the end, it's all a matter of personal taste and opinion, not a provable fact, which looks better. As for Mattel's proportions: Knock knees. Wide shoulders. Boy hips. Oddly bulging forearms (I yam what i yam!). Truncated torso. Elongated Man's neck. Big hands in perpetual claw-your-eye-out position. It's like drug induced Rob Leifeld Image comic come to life. Ick.
The main issue seems to be that we need a new option. We need a female body that is compatible with the mego female heads, clothes and accessories that is a little more reliable and better fitting, that is a little more busty and realistic.
Actually, most people would probably be happy if FTC just recast a couple of the pre-existing parts to fix these issues. Or if someone else out there would recast a more realist bustline and a better set of hips, the arms and legs would probably be fine. Many have already shown that they would pay the $20 plus shipping to get a good body. I'm one of them. If we could just get those 2 parts redone, how much money could someone make??? Actually, a thin plastic clip-on set of boobs and hips that are easy to add over top of a current body would probably work. If done right, they could even even out the posture problems people complain about.
