    They're out! In hand pics here:

    Got to say, they do look pretty good. The sculpts do anyway, the arms don't match the rest of the body, weird! Very new out so no parted out ones on eBay yet.

    CHEERS!

    Originally intended on getting these, but lately I have spent so much on male and female bodies from phicen that the only thing I want are the head sculpts and loose parts from the sets. I would not have use the bodies anyways. Strictly phicen for the time being for me

    The skin tone mismatch is very off putting.

    The bodies are clearly meant to be clothed/covered, but still.

    Yeah, I can see them being swapped out. Be nice to see some more up close pics of the sculpts.

    CHEERS!

    Maybe they'll get the color of the various parts to be a closer match. Photos can sometimes exaggerate color discrepancy of plastic parts (it has more to do with how reflected light is picked up by camera sensors).

    I'm more worried by how big the head seems to be. Unless that's a smaller body(which I doubt).

    I don't mind the size of the head sculpt if the overall appearance is all "loaded", but if you strip away a lot of the gear . . . the head sculpt in terms of perspective and size does appear a tad big.

    I guess we'll have to wait and see it in hand and then judge accordingly based on the merits of what works and what doesn't.

    I thought these figure would likely yield a "A-" or "B+" at the least, but I now suspect it it'll be more of a "C" offering overall due to the arm color not matching and the size of the head sculpt.

    We'll see.

    Are these really in hand production pieces? I ask because the watch looks like a prototype- each part is a different and very bright color. It's garrish even by fashion standards.

    Good question.

    As with anything, we'll just have to wait and see for ourselves.

    My worst fear is that DAMTOYS cut corners due to their production backlog. If so, then they'll be on my 1:6 $%^& list (i.e. never buy anything from them for a long time until they earn back my support). If that is the case, then it would be a God damn <CENSORED>ing shame for them to screw over collectors like that.

    They are G-Shock 6900 Series. One looks like the DW-6900CC-6 and the other looks like a DW-6900AC-2. They come in quite a few color combinations.

    As far as I know they are the production figures, the second post shows the boxes and the paint apps on the heads are definitely different to the prototype pics.

    Yeah, they do seem to err towards the Spade figures more than the prototypes did, but, they're still nice. Oddly they now look more like Jessica Alba than the Olsen twins.

    CHEERS!

    I saw the heads on ebay too, figured they were knockoffs because they were so different from the preview...guess not.

    I like the version with short hair; that might be the complete set I'll buy.

    I was always leaning towards both are none, I always try to see the up side in. Most situations, the up for me is I save approximately 300 dollars and with all the phicens I have bought in the last two years I really didn't need these. I have the blond and the red hair Elizabeth Olsen sculpt I can kitbash my own (better looking twins) twins if inclined. Really I owe dam for this one.@ rogerbee you are so right they look like part of the gangster kingdom line up

    These big differences between production and prototype are fast becoming the norm. They spend loads on perfectly produced prototypes as they know they'll hook loads of gullible collectors into placing pre-orders. The end product doesn't seem to matter as much as those pre-orders, provided they can keep the money from them rolling in they'll do ok.

    CHEERS!

    In the future I am going to curve my enthusiasm for Dame female figures and wait until I see in hand pictures

    There was a time when I wouldn't buy anything till I'd seen it reviewed on Michael Crawford's site.

    I can't speak for rogerbee, but for me they just don't look quite the same as the promotional pictures. When I first saw them I didn't think of gangster kingdom now I do

    I see no noticeable difference between the prototype and the pictures shown. And they sure as hell don't look like Gangsters Kingdom figures.

    We each have our own opinions, and when it comes to opinion's there is no right or wrong.

    There will always be differences between a promotional photo (or graphic) and final production. The promo photos are usually hand assembled and painted. More representative of the final product would be a production sample, but by then it's too late for a manufacturer to gauge pre-orders. I don't really see these as varying wildly from the promo photos. And I agree, I don't see any traces of the Gangsters' Kingdom style in them.

    It's more the paintwork than the style of the sculpt.

    to me their female head sculpts lean toward the cartoony side, rather than realistic. for those who like them grab them. the box set or the head sculpts. I am starting to see them pop up on E-bay..... for me?.... If I am going to spend thirty dollars there are much better female head sculpts to waste my money on.

    Seen more pics on FB and they look a bit better there. Wish Luka was still posting, his pics were always the best.
