    Very cool figures AFM!!!

    I especially like this one, from Gen 14 is it? I'm not very familiar with the team as I never got into the comic series. I presume the HS is from TBLeague, but which one?

    Great looking group. Years ago (2004) I made a Team 7 and Wetworks Bash. I started collecting pieces to remake and improve them in 2013, but never got around to it

    Thanks my friend. The head i used is not TBLeague. Here's a link for it: 1/6 Scale YMTOYS YMT017 "Li" Female Head Sculpt H#Suntan — GIANTOY action figures

    I went with a look for the team that I think works for them in action figure form. Thanks again.

    Funny I find this thread when I came to the forums to ask about a similar upgrade. I'm guessing you used parts from this figure



    What body did you use that fits that suit? I was going to swap the head(though I'd be tempted to pry the hair off and put it on a better head), hands & clothes over to a seamless body but I have no idea what's suitable on the market to use these with.

    Hey there,
    that is the exact item I used, but the only thing salvageable was the suit, leg band, and boots. I used in the first picture A TBLeague large breast suntan figure and then swapped out the body for a med breast body. You will have to do quite a bit of modding to get that head to fir on a new body. It wasn't worth it to me.

    The two bodies AFM used for this figure are the tbleague s21b [for the first pics], and the tbleague s23b [the second version with the exposed legs]. Hope that helps!

    Do you still have the original head? Would it be possible to put the hair piece onto a new head without too much hassle? I'm not big on rooted hair.

    As for the seamless bodies, do they all have the same muscle tone and height? She was supposed to be muscular in the comics but most artists just forgot(J Scott Campbell seems to know how to draw very few female body types) and she was 6' 4" or about so a slightly taller body would be nice too. I couldn't find any such bodies browsing eBay.

    I hope AFM doesn't mind me answering some of your questions, but I can at least give a little bit of input. Obviously, AFM will have to answer your question specifically about the hair on the original headsculpt since I don't own that figure, but from looking at it, I'm not sure why you would want to use that sculpted hair. First of all, unless it just easily pulls right off like some of the more recent Hot Toys sculpted hair, it might be tough to get it off in one piece. Secondly, it may not actually fit correctly onto a 1/6 headsculpt without a ton of modding. Finally, the detail on the sculpted hair itself seems a bit lacking. If it were me, I'd just find the perfect loose head, remove the existing hair, and then re-hair it to the exact style I wanted, using a natural hair fiber. But since it sounds like you want to avoid 'real' hair, perhaps you might consider using a different head that already has sculpted hair?

    Alternatively, you could find a blank head sculpt without any hair added yet, or cut the hair off an existing sculpt, and then add sculpted hair to it in the style you prefer?

    Just some thoughts. I feel like any of these above options would still be easier and would achieve better results than trying to transplant that existing sculpted hair.

    ETA: Regarding the tbleague bodies, no, not every single tbleague body has the same build. Some have more muscle tone than others. Some have larger bust sizes, etc. There are also two different skintones, pale and suntan. They all vary, depending on the model. I suggest looking at the GianToy website, as it might assist you in deciding which body is best for your needs:

    1/6 Phicen / TBleague female body 12'' inch - Skin tone: Suntan — GIANTOY action figures

    Regarding tall bodies -- the tbleague models that AFM used are fairly tall for female figures. Currently, the tallest tbleague female body available is the s33b, though it is not as muscular as the ones AFM has used. But the s21b and s23b are probably still taller than most other 1/6 female bodies out there. They are also perfect in terms of body shape design for comic book-style characters.

    My friend i couldn't have said it better. Thanks for the very informative reply.

    TO diosoth: The head on the original figure is really under sized and I think the hair is not removable at all. Even if it was, you would be hard pressed to fit it on another head because of the size.

    My pleasure, AFM!

    And thanks for confirming my suspicions about the sculpted hair.
