    What are some shorter modern bodies?

    I'm just trying to find out if there's any modern short bodies out there that you guys might know of. I know Medicom bodies run shorter, but am looking for others.

    Re: What are some shorter modern bodies?

    I have found the Kings Toy body or similar design to be on the short side, if you really want to make them shorter leave the feet off. I have done that on several bodies and it really makes a difference in height. I fill the boot with tissue paper first and then push the leg in as far as it will go...

    Maybe not that short. But still I'll look into it. I'm basically looking for a Hot Toys Bruce Lee type short, mins the Hot Toys Bruce Lee price.

    Leg mods aren't too hard to do. I'm looking for Tony Barton's body mod page, when I find it I'll get back to you. Soldier Story also makes smaller ankle pegs to shorten the figure. I used those plus the body mod to create a body that's at least an inch shorter than most bodies.

    Even if I stuck feet in there if you use a body of these design with short feet posts, he really would not be that much taller, a bit yes, but not huge. These bodies are ok and can be bought cheap.

    The other method is to use a Dragon Neo and chop him down to size so to speak. Most cut a small amount from the thigh and the forearm...

    or look for the short dragon body, Hubert, Bobby wall, micheal witman, Peter the German para all came with a shorter dragon body.

    Here is a couple of pictures

    Interesting... The old butchering system. I just get scared considering that half of these figures tend to break very easily if you position them, let alone, cut em. Good ideas though.

    The Scarface figure is also quite small - the one I saw recently was around the same size as the Bruce Lee figure.

    If you want really short (about 5'6") with pretty heavy muscles, the Super Articulated GI Joe is shaped about like Bruce Lee. The hands and feet are not so good for display though.

    They are no longer in production but are not hard to find.

    I like the old and the newer Medicom nudes - they look a little odd until you gear them up,. but they are definitely shorter. You can also use the "short pegs" with the Soldier Story nudes.
