That is the info I was looking for cj,
Yes, by skinny body I mean the fashion doll type with cut joints at the shoulders/hips, and the clicking plastic thing internal to the rubber legs and arms. No ankle articulation at all on these fellows, just a bendable rubber foot.
I did find that the galleries say Cap America was released on a skinny body, and it sure does look like one of those bendy arm fellows to me. I find it hard to believe Mego would put a superhero on a fashion doll style body tho.
But, I don't collect the 12 inch Mego line (yet), and in my trading experience I have had very little of the 12ers cross my path.
I'm glad to help, guys. I always see confusion over the 12" body styles, especially with different people labelling different bodies as "skinny". I think one problem is that these figures aren't nearly as widely collected as the 8 inchers, so people have less experience with them and they are a bit more "mysterious".
Cap comes on the standard 12" body, again the gallery description arises from differing definitions of "skinny body". I've heard that Mego made a mistake though, and he really should have been on a muscle body with red hands. It certainly would have helped his big head problem a bit!

The figures that were released on the fashion doll style skinny bodies were. Lenny, Squiggy, early KISS, and Sonny Bono?
The Captain from Captain and Tenille was on a standard 12 body?
thanks again for the input.
