Yep, that first one is awesome. Beats the Kumik version that came out about 5 years ago. I can upgrade my kitbash now.

Beautiful head. I'll definitely need to pick 1 up.

I'd love to see your custom Avril Lavigne! That would be a nice upgrade even if the kumik version was one of their best creation (compared to most their production it's even a gem lol)

I agree, it was a nice head sculpt for Kumik. I’ll post some pics when I get this one.

I have the old one, too, and I agree this one looks even better.

I agree, the first one is very nice looking sculpt. I really like the hairstyle and quality of the hair on it. : )

These are out on sale, now.

Anyone got any reviews or in-hand pics yet? I've had a hit to my finances recently and I'm going to have to be more choosy with my purchases for a while, so while these look great in the promos, if they don't colour match any Phicen or (at a pinch) Jiaou bodies then they're an unjustifiable expense.

Mine is supposedly on the way from giantoy, so hopefully I’ll know in a couple weeks.

Thanks Stryker, looking forward to hearing about it.

If I do get one, I'll probably get it from Giantoy myself.

Well, Giantoy just sent me a partial refund for this, as it didn’t get sent when they thought it did — so probably another 2-3 week delay. Grrr — and Yah! Bummed about the delay, but at least I got this for $10 less. I ordered most of the clothes and accessories to make the figure — though I still have no idea what body I’ll be able to use — I’m really hoping it’s one of the shorter TBLs.

My Avril head sculpt arrived today from Giantoy -- much faster than expected. It's hard to tell from the photos, but the sculpt looks pretty much the same as the promo pics, very pretty, and fairly accurate to Ms. Lavigne; the nice thing is the head sculpt is indeed just a fraction smaller than some of the female head sculpts on the market (particularly Super Duck), but not as much as I would have liked to be honest.

Here are some comparison shots on the S27B (Suntan) -- the smallest of the TBLeague female bodies, and the closest to her actual height in scale -- and on the S25B (Suntan) -- the mid-height body. Personally, I would have liked the head to be just a whee bit smaller so that it looked less bobble-head like on the S27B, but it doesn't look to bad on the S25B (so that's the one I'll probably go with).

She looks great. Now imagine when you get your "buxom" body. Smile Of course, based on our ongoing discussion, that one might be less petite.

Ooh, she looks lovely! It's nice to see a sculpt that looks like the promo pic for once! Very Happy

And to my eyes, she could just about work on either of the bodies, but I do understand what you mean about the verging onto bobblehead territory with the s27b.

I really like both of those bodies, they are now my go-to for more petite characters, I just wish the boobs on them weren't so, er... 'in your face', lol.

Oops. I just realized I uploaded the same pic. Edited with the corrected S27B body as the top picture. The bobblehead quality is much more apparent with the correct photo. Very Happy

Yeah... it's frustrating that so few heads work with that s27b. And likewise frustrating that the body itself is too small to work with most adult-sized headsculpts, and yet is far too busty to pass as really young person, either. ;/

Thanks for the pics, I'm convinced! It certainly looks best on the 25b, although I'm also not too keen on those bodies due to the huge boob=petite frame ratio (I guess they were going overboard to make them look as un-childlike as possible but only succeeded in making them look odd) - I've only got a single medium-short 24a and I've found it only looks right to me wearing an Asian head. Avril looks good enough that she might just persuade me to buy a 25b. But then she is also quite likely to look really great on the new 28b.  Very Happy

Going to have to wait a few weeks before I can actually afford one now, though. Neutral


EDIT: Duh, 29b not 28b.

I completely agree about the smaller bodies' bust issues, but I've also found that the headsculpt one uses on them can make all the difference in how 'big' the bust actually looks. The worst part about the bust on these imo is not even the size, but the placement.... they are actually weirdly 'low' on the chest, and yet super 'perky', so it just looks.... odd. But strategic headsculpts and outfits can help a bit. ;D

Good luck finding the right body for this one, and of course would love to see pics eventually. : )

Option A, which I think we're generally agreed is the winner, seems to be disappearing fast (sold out at Giantoy and a few others), so I took the plunge and ordered one while they're still around.

I finally received all the clothing bits to put Avril together. Doing the soak & rinse treatment at the moment, but I should be able to post pics tomorrow.

Took a break from Jabba to throw my Avril Lavigne together and take some quick (albeit crappy) photos. I need another bunch of bracelets to cover up the horrible wrist situation that TBL's always have, and maybe a necklace of some kind. But overall, I achieved the look I was going for as far as clothing goes.

Now if only someone made a female "bird-flipping" hand (not the Gangster Kingdom style), and I'd be able to give her that famous pose she seemed to always strike as an angry young Canadian... Razz

She looks great. The wrist situation can be partly compensated for by remembering to pose the hand in a way where it wouldn't look odd -- although sometime the requirements of the desired pose might get in the way. As for the hand, if there are any decent poseable finger female hands, that might be your solution.

The new figure looks great! So much more immediately recognisable!

And I would also love a female ‘middle finger hand’, for my Beth Greene figure. ;p

Those are nice pics! Looks like a beautiful sculpt, too, can't wait for mine to arrive now!

Is that still the 25B body? Looks good enough to tempt me to maybe buy one (I've got a solitary 24A).

View user profile

Stryker2011

Stryker2011

Yep. It’s the S25B. Just right for the head sculpt, I think, but just a smidge too tall for the real Avril — but compared to the “normal” sized TBL body in the last pic, she looks tiny.

Finally got my Avril A, looks great on my (now broken-armed Sad) S29.


Happily, there's another S29 on it's way. Smile

Happily, yes, but what did you do to break its arm?
