    Are the Diamond Direct Trek Bodies The Same As The FTC Repro Bodies?

    I am wanting to pick up an Uhura figure, but I was curious if the bodies on the repros that EMCE/DD did are identical to the FTC repro bodies. Will she match my other figures or be oddly out of place?

    I don't own any loose FTC female bodies, but I can advise you that, in general: FTC bodies are slightly smaller than vintage, and Emce/DM/DD are slightly larger. But neither to any extent that is glaring.

    the emce/diamond body is actully shorter ,the FTC made in china body would be the body to use .i have a couple and they are good ,although poseing is kinda
    akward ,but once you do it looks fine ,the emce body is not too bad ,but it seems a little loose around the arms ,and the plastic pins that are at the hips can break kinda easy.
    this happened a bit with some bif bang pow figures that use the same design .the FTC bodies (made in china)are a bit tight ,which is why they are akward to pose .the classic mego body is
    the best .but for cheap way to go FTC is fine.

    She will match just fine with other figures for display purposes. A collector could certainly tell the subtle differences between Mego, EMCE, and FTC... and people definitely have their favorites... but I don't think you will find it "oddly out of place."

    Awesome! For some reason I was thinking she'd be a lot taller, ha! But sounds like, other than subtle differences, they're pretty much on the same scale! Thanks for the answers, folks! Hopefully she will be beaming in soon!

    I ended up purchasing a DD Uhura this morning on ebay.
    Thanks again for the comments!

    FYI, it's Diamond Select Toys, or DST. You may be thinking of DC Direct. May help with any future searches.

    Received my repro Uhura! I have not had the chance to take her out of the package yet, but she looks great. I think I am going to love her!
