Hello, everyone. I just joined the forums today after browsing for a while and reading up on the posts about the Phicen Seamless body on here. I still have a few questions though, that I haven't seen answers to yet. Firstly, I just ordered one from a Chinese seller on eBay (blonde, tan, large breast, pink underwear). He told me something along the lines of: this model has a different head, something is wrong with this model, my boss said we can't sell it, please change your item order number to a different model.
I was fairly pissed, as I wouldn't have bought from him if he wasn't selling that one, but whatever. I changed to the bright red hair, pale, large breast, blue underwear figure. As I'm planning to dabble in OOAK projects, and this being my first, I don't really mind. I just thought the pink underwear was a nice touch. I picked Phicen over Hot Stuff because, well, Hot Stuff looks terrible. It hurts my eyes. It appears to be made out of the same material that mannequin targets are made out of, such as you would see on certain shooting ranges.
1.I really wanted a small breast model, but the buttocks/hips/thighs look smaller as well. Is this true? I ended up buying the larger breast model for the sake of it having a butt. Sometimes, it's hard to be sure if this is the case from these stock photographs.
2. Should I soak the figure in warm/hot water before I bend it? I read that on another forum--not as advice, but as someone's personal precautionary step.
3. Would you consider the flesh on the Phicen figure to be somewhat porous?
4. If the figure comes with any slits/tears/cuts in the flesh, is there any substance you would recommend to patch this with, or is it pretty much game over?
5. And lastly, this is the model I have ordered. Can you tell me anything about it in comparison to previous or newer models that have been released?
Thank you, everyone.
