The new Hot Toys bodies are awesome. They come with two different neck posts to accommodate heads from different makers.
The figure was originally fitted with a Dragon body, hence the clothes fit well. I'm just looking to get a body which isn't broad in the shoulders and chest with ball jointed wrists. I was thinking maybe a G3 body, but they seem to be a little barrel-chested and broad shouldered. Are the new Hot Toys bodies in scale with Dragon? I own a Hot Toys Dwayne Hicks and he's a lot bigger compared to my other Dragon figures.pukingdog said:The Hot Toys and ACE bodies will work with neck adapters, I think. Those Twisting Toys hands look good as well, or you might consider hacking up SST arms and adapting the hands. Would the Neo3 DML body's shoulders be too wide?
Unfortunately you can't. Dragon wrist posts are much thinner than Hot Toys. Be aware that Hot Toys bodies are slightly larger in scale than Dragon. At least in my experience.eighthsamurai said:you guys at OSW are the bee's knees. is there anyone out there that knows more about customizing than you fellas?
i'm thinking of doing a dragon to hot toys body swap too and had a quick question about the hands. Are they compatible? I know for Sideshow and Hot Toys bodies, there's some drilling involved. I was hoping you can just use dragon hands directly on hot toys wrist sockets. is that the case?
thanks in advance.
Roger that PD. As you can see in the photo review at Monky Depot the chest is not going to be an issue. I'm still concerned about the broadness in the shoulders. We'll see what happens. Even if the body doesn't cut it for Deckard, I'll definately use it for something else. I can already think of a couple of my figs which need a re-fit. Looks like a super poseable body.pukingdog said:The Hot Toys bodies are strappin' big fellas, and the Neo3 has pretty broad shoulders from the enhanced articulation. Lota guys seem to use early DML bodies and/or do surgery to reduce the chest or add slope to the shoulders.
Some work would allow bbi ball-joint hands to work on DML arms, and there's a few who've grafted HotToys or hobby kit ankle joints to the legs.
