    Why replace? Did your Ada's rubber body deteriorate?

    I think that Verycool has learned painfully that it is not so easy to develop a seamless body competing or beating Phicen...

    VERYCOOL entered into a business arrangement to utilize PHICEN female seamless for some of their boxed figures featuring a seamless body.

    As for what happened with their own semi-seamless body? I don't know. They either still developing/working on it or may have decided to call it a day and not follow through.

    The body is similar to the recent semi-seamless XING body that is going for around $50.00 to $55.00 online from some vendors in China.

    Oh no, I'm talking about the new RE 6 Ada Wong not RE 4, she had visible joints and I can't stand it. I tried to swap out with a Phicen S17B but the neck won't fit correctly so Help me Verycool, you're my only hope.

    I thought HT have these body figured out way back then, for example HT RE4 and Terminator 2 Sarah Connor both had a semi-seamless body.

    $50 is a little steep in my opinion. Plus I never have a XING product before so I can't tell if it's even good or not.

    I was wondering about this body, too. All US stores still have it in preorder status. Meanwhile, the bodies are available on eBay but they are $45-50 compared to $30 at the US stores.

    Re: What happened to Verycool seamless body?!?

    It appears to be in-stock in a few different eBay sellers in Asia, and I still see it listed for preorder at EKIA Hobbies and Cotswold. No idea what would be causing this much of a delay to get them stateside (or if those eBay listings in Asia are actually pre-orders) but it wouldn't be the first time.

    FWIW, the XING bodies are listing for about $40 on Cotswold now. I grabbed one last year and had mixed feelings about it. My major complaint about most modern female bodies is that they tend to be a little more slight than I'd prefer, and that applies to the XING body as well. The metal ratchets in it are also a bit harder to move than I was expecting them to be. That plus XING's price point means that the Verycool jointed body is still the female body of choice for me these days.

    I just picked up the XING body from Cotswold Collectibles for $39.99. I haven't done much with it yet but it will work well for my purposes. Seems to be a pretty decent body, but then my expectations were easy to exceed. lol

    Re: What happened to Verycool seamless body?!?

    The reason I'm interested in this body is mainly because of the price, only $30 compare to Phicen latest PL-MB2017 series which is $65. No doubt Phicen is still my favorite, but this would be much cheaper for my budget & female soldier builds (which mostly covered in gear).

    I just ordered a Xing suntan body 92005B-Mid bust from China for $32. Finger crossed.

    Oh crap, they're pre-order Forgot to read the fine print.

    Maybe.

    If you believe/feel it was deceptive/unfair, then cancel your pre-order.

    The reality is there some vendors who depend on buyers who are not attentive.

    Na it's my fault. Should have read thoroughly. Gonna cancel it. Not a fan of pre-order when it comes to these bodies, they tend to miss the release day... by a whole year.

    I asked Ekia about these bodies and they seemed to think that they were a sure thing, just delayed.

    I asked Ekia back around that time too... having it been delayed for so long, and the Xing / Pop body which is basically identical and better quality IMHO came out, I just had them cancel the order. I think VC just gave up on this one.

    The same body is being used on one of their upcoming figures due out later this quarter so it is plausible the carded body might be available around the same time.

    Production and release dates can and will change.

    I have one on p.o. since I can't remember when.
    I hazard to guess they've taken it back to the drawing board after getting some Xing series bodies to study and I hope that they've also looked at 3zero's GOT seamless arms and working to make theirs better.

    Just coming up to my first anniversary on pre-order of a FX05 (several TBLeague/Phicens purchased in the meantime!). She will be 'old' by the time of release at this rate! (And I am not being 'age-ist'!). Slow but sure wins the race.....sometimes!

    Re: What happened to Verycool seamless body?!?

    What constitutes seamless and what are the variations? For articulated 1/6 figures, I ted to think of 'seamless' as allowing visible upper neck, wrist and sometimes ankle joints. This figure has a seamless torso, but that's about all. The only joint that's seamless is the waist. Would this be a seamless hyrbird, semi-seamless, demi-seamless, partial seamless?
