IIRC, another 1:6 collector I know purchased one.

If I'm not mistaken, the set comes in different camouflage patterns. He purchased the ACU camouflage version.

He was pleased with the fit and quality of the set. He used it on a PHICEN. He recommended that I should buy a few for my 1:6 collection as well.

I have that set in Multicam and the forest AOR pattern. It's fine, and definitely fits well on the older-style Phicen bodies. Did a quick shoot with one on a 3.0 mid-bust body:

There's another one on a large-bust 4.0 body, which is a slightly better fit. I haven't managed to get her off the shelf and into the lightbox or outside for a shoot, but what you see in the eBay photos is pretty much what you get. I'd expect the new stainless steel bodies should work as well as the older ones.

Worst thing about them is that the shorts have little-to-no stretch to them, so getting them on a Phicen body can be a bit troublesome. It's not better or worse than getting any other non-stretch clothing on a Phicen body, and the clothing doesn't stain.

That defeats the context and intent/purpose of this particular set.

;) :p :lol

The Magic Cube summer sets released last year had quasi-military-themed shorts that ought to work. If you get Sithlord MacGyver's summer sets from last year, they also come with hot pants that might be what you're looking for, too.

From experience, you can make a decent pair of shorts for Phicen figures out of Dragon Models MALE BDU pants, if you have a tiny bit of sewing skill. My not-Lara-Croft here is wearing 3-color desert shorts that used to be male BDU pants.

(She's also getting upgraded to the newer Phicen muscular body...watch this space.)

I was thinking the same thing- why not just buy one of the uniforms from Magic Cube or Very Cool?
Because then she's not in a bikini! Duh! :D

Only somewhat more seriously, I did outfit my shooter with a battle belt for her extra ammo, sidearm, and utility pouches and stuff, along with her hydration pack. Because you never know what you're going to run into out there. But really because "woman in suspenders" is something I never have a problem with.
