    Sorry to change the subject -- and I really enjoyed the video, BTW -- but from the Twitter tweet, this was made using PowerDirector? Do you mind me asking what version was used?

    Thanks!

    I was a huge Tarzan fan as a kid. I remember ditching the tan bodysuit as soon as I got him. He looked 100% better.

    I also think the FTC Korak is a great figure. One of the best they've ever produced.

    I really like Korak, too. Even if one doesn't like the character, the trunks and accessories are terrific custom fodder.

    since heads can be switched, I imagine it doesn't affect value. the only way to tell a real T1 from T2 is neck plug shape -which is not visible.

    Usually there is a color variation, too, with T1 heads being paler/peachier and T2's being more bronzed/orangish.

    That's interesting to know, I also thought that the T1 neck plugs were thinner and longer and the T2 neck plugs were
    short and thicker.
