    Type-S enhancements

    Does anyone have a picture of what the larger Type-S arms and legs look like once assembled? I'm curious to how much of a noticeable difference it makes in a bodysuit.
    I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she dumped me before we met.

    If anyone here believes in psychokinesis, please raise my hand.

    Not the best pic, but I used them on my Zorro. Not that much bigger, but I like it them better.

    They add a little definition not much of the arms are going to be covered you won’t see much of a difference, the difference is if the figure will be short sleeve or sleeveless

    I've been looking at the ol' method of super-adaptoiding wrestling figure parts to get greater mass.

    I'm going to try that too. I've got a few here I can cut apart and perform surgery on. I think the joint wheels where the arms meet the traps are roughly the same size.

    I've used full wrestler bodies when I began in this hobby with varying degrees of success. The problem with Jakks and the test are the thighs are too short, by a half inch at least. I'll try to play with that too and see if I can create a workable recipe

    I have some Wrestler figures that Tony ( Trap) sold to me that he customized.
    Basically he used the Jakks ones with the ball joint arms and then modified and cut their thighs and added Mego Calves to the bottom of them.
    The look is kinda Rob Liefield --ish ( if you've seen a Youngblood comic you know what I'm getting at ) Naked, but clothed they look awesome.

    Here's a pic of the Bad Guy Machiste he did for me...he's a SuperJoe Bad guy....Left is Naked, Right is clothed....
