    EMCE Toys new bodies in development - the end of the rubber bands

    I like to wait under everything is finalized, but since David Lee and Craig Owen
    are asking people here to give them money to pay for making a new male mego
    body, I have to show what I have been working on for the past 4 months -
    a new 8 inch male and female bodies and a teen body - all without rubber bands.

    I guess I can show you the output from the 3D files of the new EMCE Toys bodies.
    After I put out an 8 inch "Make Your Own Superhero Kit" last Christmas, Classic TV Toys
    had one on Amazon like the next day, so I am leery these days of showing what I am
    working on.

            Looks good! I love that there are going to be some good body options in Mego scale! The female body looks interesting because it looks like a Mego head would fit on the neck post, an the feet look smaller like the Mego's so that boots & shoes would fit. The teen body is something I am really looking forward too as well. Hope you will give us a peak when you are ready!

              I want to be sure to post this message here too - in case it accidentally disappears from the other thread.

              I just want to let everyone here know that I have been working on the male, female, and teen bodies in 3D for four months now.
              These bodies are going to the factory for tooling in July and I expect to have production done by October - hopefully in time to
              show at New York Comicon. The bodies will retail for $5.00 each and I am not asking anyone to give me any money before the
              bodies are in stock and ready to ship.

                As always, with everything I do, it is made with classic MEGO in mind. The old heads will fit
                as will the clothes and boots. We tried to mix the best of MEGO, Mattel, and EMCE.

                        Hey Paul, please don't take offense to this comment. I'm a newbe around this place but have been a long time admirer of what you have done for the Mego community. I think the male body looks undefined. Missing muscle definition everywhere but the torso. The torso looks too large (from the front) and out of proportion with the rest of the body. The body seems to lack definition and detail. My honest opinion. I mean the price point is freaking fantastic and the female body looks good to me. I'm no sculptor but I spent a few years trying to break into the comic business and studied a lot of "superhero" anatomy. Certainly doesn't make me an expert but hopefully it is a somewhat educated feedback.

                          Thank You God!!! I absolutely DESPISE the rubber bands!

                          No more wiggly neck post, no more rubber bands popping!

                          This new body looks really nice Paul. I can't wait to get a hold of one or two.

                              I'm surprised no one said it besides SR Dagon, but the proportions and the anatomy of the male body are really off. I hope my comments won't be taken the wrong way, perhaps I am even misunderstanding the intent, but also the articulation looks like it was designed in the 70's, which to me isn't a good thing.
