    Thanks for reply, Navetsea .

    But.. are you sure these head skin tone will fits Suntan skin tone perfectly? I do have one Kumik head but the skin tone didn't match at all.

    I'm just afraid the skin tone of those head that i previously linked is similar to this Kumik Head

    This is the head :

    And now this is how the head looks like on my PHICEN S09C Suntan body

    However, it looks perfectly fine with both Hot toys Blackwidow headsculpt

    Re: Phicen Skin tone help

    Kumik heads have an orange/yellow color to them, making most body colors a mismatched. Kimi heads, most have not been released so who knows? Color matching is the hardest thing to do in this hobby!

    Re: Phicen Skin tone help

    I have both of those heads on hand right now and I can confirm that they are a mismatch for the suntan phicen body.

    The neck fittings are also too small for the phicen pegs so they will require some modding to fit.

    Aw that's disappointing.

    What colour are the Kimi heads? More like a traditional flesh tone? Or paler?

    Re: Phicen Skin tone help

    100% skin tone color match between 1:6 female head sculpts and bodies is not possible due to nuances involved.

    Re: Phicen Skin tone help

    Regarding my experience the best chance to reach a fit between Kumik and Phicen is to use a TAN-Body. SUNTAN in many cases is too greyish and PALE is too lightish. So best match between Avril Lavigne and Phicen should be S05 or more detailed S08 due to the more yellowish skin color of Kumiks heads.

    It has a slight yellow tint to it, kind of like the Kumik heads. The tones aren't even close, I'd say they are way off. Maybe the tanned body will work better but I don't have one on me to check.

    Thanks for answering. Is annoying that new heads get produced that don't match popular skintones.

    At least Phicen brought out the suntan bodies so people could use Hot Toy heads on them, but while there's loads of non-HT heads about they're getting produced in mad tones.

    Even the Kumik heads compared to each other do not always fit very well... so fitting to which Kumik head Phicen should create a color matching body... ?

    Thank you for replying. Sadly i have already ordered both KIMI toy heads . And about the neck fittings, do Kimi heads have the same neck fittings as Kumik heads?

    Yup, the Suntan skin tone to Kumik head skin tone is way off. I know Phicen are releasing 3 different skin tones, Pale, Tan, and Suntan for their new Steel skeleton bodies. But right now. I've only seeing Pale and Suntan body from E-bay & Amazon. Maybe they haven't release the Tan version of their Steel skeleton bodies?

    You mean the bodies without head? No they are not released up to now in TAN color. TAN bodies with head are released but only in the big bust version - PLLB2014-S05 and PLLB2014-S08. The numbers for the up to now not released headless bodies in TAN color are: TAN-S05B, TAN-S08C, TAN-S11D, and TAN-S14E.

    If you can get an Armored Shi or China Honor Guard body loose, those are the tan skin tone. You're on your own for hands and feet, though.

    The heads can fit but it requires a bit of force to get them onto phicen neck pegs. Once they are on, they are pretty tight.

    If the head is hard to get on the neck peg, I usually head up the neck opening for a bit with my wife's hairdryer, but don't go crazy.

    Yeah, i mean the headless body. I've seen the body numbers somewhere on OSW forums, and yes it's mentioned that the TAN is not released on Headless version. I hope it'll be released soon.

    I've seen those bodies for sale in Ebay. I was wondering why the seller didn't include the pair of hands and feet until i've seen the actual figure from the official Phicen website

    At first, i'm trying to buy two bodies along with two Kimi toys headsculpt, but then i decide to wait for the heads to come first and see if it's skin tone color is close to my Phicen Suntan skin tone

    Re: Phicen Skin tone help

    I wonder what skintone the headsculpts from the Flirty Girl Tuxedo Lingerie sets are.

    Has anyone tried them with a phicen? It seems they are not the suntan skintone and I think they are a little bit too small for a Phicen body.

    I like the sculpt but if they don't fit with a Phicen, I won't buy.

    Could anyone give advice, please?

    I did not own it, but from what i see, i think the skin tone is close enough to Suntan skin tone.

    To me, the skin tone looks alike to Kimi toys KT004 & KT005 skin tone. As for the head size, i think it's a little bit smaller than most of head sculpts.

    Head sculpts names ( Left to right ). And sorry about the poor light source. The picture was taken in a dark room with just a phone camera's flash alone.

    Re: Phicen Skin tone help

    I think both head sculpts look great on the Phicen bodies.

    They were available here in Germany at my favourite shop, but I took my time to think about them, and now they are already sold out and I have to wait for the next delivery, stupid me!

    Thanks so much for the photo, now I definitely know that I want the brunette one!

    Stupid stupid me, next time I buy first and think about it later!!!

    As far as I know, neither of these Kimi heads has hit the states. I've had the brunette one on PO for quite some time, and I've been seeing them on eBay for twice the amount of the original PO.

    Yeah, I love how these head sculpts looks on my Phicen body. They may not 100% skin match, but they look alright! ( Not worse as Kumik head skin tone mismatch )

    And i think you're lucky enough that these headsculpt are available in your local shop. I mean you can always go there to check if it's available or not. Me, i have to order via Ebay and wait half month for it to arrive

    somebody wrote a useful review regarding the threads topic:
    Nice ! Always satisfied with this seller. Fast shipping (12 days to France), item as described and well protected. I order both KT004 and KT005 headsculpts, they are beautiful and very attractive. About a matching body (Phicen steel) : the best color is with Suntan (S09C). I also test with S07 (pale) and S08 (tan), they are not suitable for KT004/005. The headsculpt is a little bit hard to plug in the neck (Phicen steel skeleton peg is too big), but at end, enter and fit nice (just need to enlarge the hole - easy to do, head structure is the same as Phicen). Very nice character, and happy with this transaction.

    The heads aren't too small, and the skin is yes similar to suntan I suppose, definitely looks best on a tan-ish body. Mine is on a playtoy2.0, but the Caucasian is just too light, so she is on the first 2.0 with tan skin.
