    Now is the Tomoe body also tan or is it suntan?

    Tomoi is neither. It is more like the pale, but it has a somewhat pinkish cast to it.

    "Close enough" or "it'll do" is the reality/truth of the matter.
    After a year of collecting Phicen figures the above statement is best. I have 3 of the exact same head sculpts on 3 of the exact same bodies (Phicen S06B). The head sculpts are consistent in skin tone. Ironically, one of the S06B bodies is a slight shade lighter than the other 2.

    So frustrating. You pretty much have to buy one of everything to have your own color palette to test against. $$$

    The best match is still the (old) suntan Phicen with Hot Toys heads (4 generations of Hot Toys Black Widow Phicen).

    No sorry I wasn't more specific. The original Phicen suntan stainless steel figures (S06B, S09C, S12D) still work best for HOT TOYS head sculpts (below "Phicen Black Widow" with old/original suntan) vs the "new mid-breast suntan" which appears to be a shade too light.

    It's anyone's guess what skin tone that head actually is, but your best bet is to get a "suntan" Phicen skin tone. One of the original names used for that skin tone was "Hot Toys tan" to give you a sense of what skin tone they were aiming for. The base bodies in that tone are model #'s PLMB-2014-S02, PLLB-2014-S06, PLLB-2014-S09, PLMB-2015-S02A, PLLB-2015-S06B, PLLB-2015-S09C, and PLLB-2015-S12D (copy/pasted from my skin tone comparison shot in my Flickr album). The differences between them are mostly in bust size, detail of the naughty bits, and whether the feet are removable. S02* are mid-bust, everything else is large; the S09C body has more detailed genitalia sculpting and marginally larger proportions; and the S12D has removable feet (and is much much more stable and compatible with shoes). Very, very few heads match the Phicen pale skin tone -- other than the ones from Phicen itself, the only other matches I've ever seen are from Super Duck and 1 or 2 from Verycool.

    I didn't go to your second link, but the model number in the title doesn't exist. There's the S16A in pale and the S17B in suntan (model # prefix for both is PLMB-2016). However, the S17B body is visibly lighter than the original Phicen suntan skin tone, as you will see if you click that link above to see the full skin tone comparison shot. Depending on the head, you may get a visible mismatch in skin tone colors.
