    As I assumed, the HS colors don't really match the body's skin tone.

    Do you think there's another HS out there that will match?

    The "custom" one seems much better finished than the Kumik one. Odd choice having a hand with next to no support like that as well.

    This might be a silly question...but what on earth is the test stick used for? First time I've seen that!

    I think Kumik's own head matching better with their own body, but I am not sure as they have so many female heads, the Lura head is the best match so far

    I agree, the custom one looks much better finishing and it's more solid and you can screw out all parts, also it could stand well

    But the Kumik 2.0 has it's own advantage, cheap seamless body with so many accessories, buying 3 boots on eBay is already exceed the price for a kumik body I think..

    Oh and for the test stick, Kumik advise:

    Please be aware that the body would stain if it wore certain types of clothing, we strongly recommend customer to use the provided test stick before putting clothes on it

    I like the looks of this body. I have one of the early Kumik bodies, and I have to say it's superior to the Hot Toys female bodies I have (RE Alice, and some other forgettable one). I'm looking forward to getting one of these.

    Hey guys, got mine. Will do a little review shortly. The rubber used on this is very nice, it's not that horrible tacky stuff. It does have a slightly 'orange' hue to it, as you can see in the pictures above, but overall for the money it's a great body. The neck is not too long and skinny like on the original body. Still some issues with the moulding quality of the hands, they need a little trimming but very pleased with mine.

    Re: Kumik 2.0, anybody see this yet?

    Is it possible to remove the rubber "skin" from the arms and legs? I'm curious as to what's underneath. As someone pointed out, there's odd bumps on the sides of the thighs. As these caused by excess plastic, which could be trimmed off?

    I've seen Kumik bodies in the past, and they were probably the worst i've come across. Shiny plastic, odd skin tones, poor moulding. The fact that they don't look well matched using their own brand heads is a bad sign. Cheap, yes but "and nasty?"

    Hum! If that body really looks that way i rather go for the VERYCOOL 1:6 Scale Female instead!




    One is bigger than 1/6 scale, but that does'nt matter !

    I just got mine from iyiyyy. Will compare it to the 1.0 body. Will also add the 2.0 to my articulation posing post. I am going try fitting the 1.0 legs.

    I got out a Kumik 1.0 to compare to the 2.0. The hip connectors are the same so I switched the legs. I have a bash that I think would be good with the 2.0 top and 1.0 legs as it will involve pants and bare arms.

    Kit are these bodies as fragile as the Phicen bodies. I do like the look of these, but are they made for handling or just to dress and put on a shelf?

    So far I played quite a lot with my testing sample and seems the joints are strong, I think it's better than Phicen old bodies, I will ban it more later when I am free

    Re: Kumik 2.0, anybody see this yet?

    Got this figure yesterday, and I already ruined it putting thigh-high black stockings on it (despite giving the clothes the vinager bath as recommended, the legs were horribly stained). Also, and I don't know why they did this, but as mentioned, the wrist joint has absolutely no support inside the arm ( the only thing holding the wrist peg is the empty rubber that is the arm). Can barely bend the arms, as well. One more thing, the ankle pegs ARE NOT REMOVABLE, either. So, unless you plan on using shoes with a removable peg, forget it; beets won't work with this one. Initially, this figure looks pretty good for the cost, but overall, it's a total piece of useless junk. $30 bucks I wish I had just spent on one of the new Flirty Girl bodies.

    the kumik 2.0 is utterly worthless. I told kumik off in not so many words, She can't hold anything unless you rig something like a metal armature inside. the joints on elbow and knee are week like version 1 phicen but cheep knock offs circulating of phicen. Buyer beware this figure is bad news I'm thinking kumik should give these away with every purchase of there heads to drum up business just so they can get rid of this embarrassment.

    Just an fyi phicen are stronger than there version one and 2 I have one from vesion 4 im using for wonder woman and she is awesome. the lumik 2.o is like a barbie doll the shoes are just as small which means no other female can use them. left leg is bowed, the right crotch area needs trimmed of silicone. the arms are useless on 2.0 unless you just using it for a swimsuit model or model fashion because this is a doll body not to be used for action purposes at all.What i did was tranfer the arms to an old kumik and gave the new body old kumik arms and it;s now a useful body but that means spending 50 bucks to get one useful body
