Doesn't really matter to me, just as long as the clothing fits without being impossible to remove!
The body looks amazing. Looking forward to seeing the female body you design.

Congratulations again. Everything I see and read from your line is fantastic. And I´m pretty sure it will be the best among all the new Mego-like series.
I specially like that you change the knee articulation. That kind of hidden articulation -as Hasbro 3 3/4" figures have- is more expensive to do? Are you going to use it in the elbows also, maybe in the future, or for the women body?
I never got into the Mego Buck Rogers line as a kid; the 3 3/4" figures were inferior to Micronauts and I never knew about the 12" line, and doubt I would've bought them if I had. But I am super psyched for these.
Beautiful work! Well-proportioned, not goofy, not over-muscled, perfect! These will make great superhero bodies for retro-Mattels. (It's amazing to me how big companies can get it wrong, and small companies can get it right. It's like the big ones go for the common denominator but end up miscalculating even that.)
Buck Rogers will probably be one of those rare "exception" lines for me, i.e. sometimes you're only a casual fan of the license but you get them anyway because the figures look amazing. (Excellence has a way of tipping the scales. ) Here's hoping your stable of licensed figures expands to include... everything. (Maybe you could do what Sideshow did for 12-inch, and sub-license Star Wars for an 8-inch format!)
Quick question. The old body was slightly taller than Megos, and the updated body looks slightly taller than the old. Is he growing, or is it just the way the feet or legs might be arranged?
I asked the same question and he said that the factory miscalculated the rate of shrinkage on the plastic they used for the figure.
I'm also looking forward to the new female figures, when they finally come out.
How about a rough sketch or blueprint to show us what's at least on the drawing board?
^ Yeah I saw your question and the answer you got.
I just meant the new, updated one looks to be even taller than the already taller old one.
Yes, the revised Z-body is slightly taller than the original one but not by much, maybe a millimeter. It looks like the difference is greater in the picture but it's not.
