OK - so the Figures Inc KISS are showing up and everybody wants to know about the new body. There is good and bad news.
Bad news first - still made out of a lighter pvc material and strung in an X configuration that makes the torso want to turn sideways. Difficult to get them to hold a Rock God pose. Note that the same thing happens with other modernMego bodies that are strung this way.
Good news - different pelvis than the earlier ctvt pelvis. Looks like they shrunk down the 12" body and copied the pelvis from that. They also copied the hands which is really cool imho. You can restring the body and it will behave.
Best news - the heads, paint application, and outfits are absolutely fantastic. Really amazing how much detail is jammed into the face paint on these tiny heads. Ditto for the outfits. Super attention to detail and they are put together well for having so many crazy parts on them.
I took some shots of opening the boxes and some pics of the figures and their makeup.
Some shots of the Cat coming out of the bag; along with some pics of the tray and ties and all of Peters outfit parts.
OK - the new ctvt body compared to the older one and also to a regular t2Mego. And a last group shot of all the different choices you have to change him to if you want to do such a thing.
There are some good things about this body. There is a new pin for the hip that is very cool and unbreakable. The shoulder joint was redesigned as well to have a slot and a different type of attachment for the metal hook that the band attaches to. It is nifty as well, tho I don't like how the pin protrudes out of the shoulder.
I am going to try a restring ala T1 next and will report back on that one.
Oh - I also got in some 12" I will have to post up pics of those at a later time as well.
have a GOOD time - rche
