Thanks and welcome, Mark. I like it too (although the Guy Whidden shirt was a little too close to the skin tone, which was less than ideal). Keep in mind that while you can still find these Triad dress boots (especially the black version), they are bloody hell to fit on most feet. You'd have to heat up the relatively soft plastic and still struggle; losing my patience, here I've actually sliced open along the molded zipper line on the inside sides.

Part XVIII: Sports, casual, and traditional outfits

Today's installment is all over the map.

First up, the Windbreaker sports clothing set by Wild Toys. This was available in four versions, of which this is WT-22D. It includes a hooded dark blue windbreaker, matching dark blue track pants, a white sleeveless top, black sports shorts, black biking shorts, and a pair of white sports shoes. The set also came with an oversized supposedly David Beckham head sculpt (not shown here). I have often complained about the staining, and the black biking shorts were the biggest culprit. But since I came across the set, I decided to give it another try, after some intensive washing with Tide Ultra Oxi. This time it did not stain, although admittedly I did not leave the outfit on for a long time.

Here is the fully clothed look on an M33. It is a tight but comfortable fit. Note that the intensive scrubbing during washing damaged the detail running down the outer side of the track pants. I'm telling myself they are well used. The pockets on the pants are functional.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Stbl6410

So are the zippers on the windbreaker, including its pockets. The shoelaces unfortunately fray at the ends, but I do not want to trim/shorten them in case I need to re-tie them in the future. The shoes require feet, and you will need smaller non-TBLeague feet to fit in them. This, in turn, might require using something (I recommend small lengths of cloth elastic band) to tighten the fit with the TBLeague foot/ankle peg.

Sans windbreaker.

With the sports shorts.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Stbl6710

With the biking shorts. If you still find this set and want to use these items, make sure you pre-treat them to avoid staining (especially these biking shorts).

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Stbl6810

Next up, we have a Toy Center casual wear set, CEN-M08B, one of three variations (this one with a black top, the other two having a white and green top, respectively). I got two, thinking they were 1/12 scale (due to carelessness on my part), but despite that oversight and initial disappointment, they work pretty well in 1/6 scale instead. The sets include the top, belt, distressed jeans, and shoes. The jeans are a very tight fit on an M33 and would not work on anything bulkier than that; as it is, he is not "complete" in there. The pockets are functional, and the jeans "zip up" with both velcro and a little tab button.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Stbl6910

I noticed that the rear pockets are not sown on perfectly symmetrically, but this probably varies between specific items.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Stbl7010

Despite the very tight fit, the figure is able to sit comfortably. The shoes did not require any special modification to work well with the TBLeague foot/ankle pegs.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Stbl7110

Next up we have an example of a type of east Asian traditional costume that can be found in widely-spaced periods and consequently in a great many historical and fantasy sets. The robe and pants shown here come from a Kong Ling Ge Ming Dynasty General of Han set (KLG-R018), but apart from colors, designs, and some minor structural details, they are essentially the same as many others depicting Chinese (and to some extent Japanese) historical or fantasy characters. The robes tend to be loose enough to accommodate TBLeague bodies comfortably enough, even in their sleeves, which are the narrowest parts. They are tied shut on the inside and twice on the outside.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Stbl7210

The costume provides virtually no restriction to articulation.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Stbl7310

The pants tend to be fairly loose (although this example is looser than most), and would fit even larger bodies than M33, much like the Coo Model pants provided with their Vikings and knights. They are also not very specific looking, and could lend themselves to use in kitbashing non-Asian characters too.

I learned a new term today, thanks. It is a DAM toy indeed; Monkey Depot had it parted out under the name Adrik, don't ask me why. He can sit and probably squat, but balancing him that way would be difficult so it didn't even come to me to try. It was our earlier discussion that made me dig out this set. They are hard to come by now, and even more expensive (though not by too much) than they were back then. Too bad I only surmounted the staining issue this late and damaged the track pants (which might have never been staining culprits to begin with -- the top is made from the same material, wasn't treated, and no problem). A new pair of track pants (but black) from some other company I found on eBay is on its way.

The jeans are unfortunately too tight for a TBL body to look right. I’m curious why you felt the need to scrub the track suit and not just let it soak? Also, as far as the shoe laces, if they are anything like paracord, you could use a flame to melt the ends of the laces to stop the fraying.

Yep, it's him, and it's pretty good. Didn't really put him to good use here, though.

The jeans might work a little better on a slimmer body like M31 or M32. As for scrubbing instead of soaking -- lack of patience and lack of practice. I'm familiar with the flame method for stopping fraying, but didn't feel like experimenting with it on something this small. Nail polish or glue would have worked too, and I should have tried that.

My tracksuit's fabric is different. It's more of a plastic-like fabric, doesn't shed fibers (both un/fortunately). Mine is from a really old set that also came with a David Beckham's HS and a pair of Adidas white shoes that are too small for TBLeague's feet.

I remembered reading about these suits, that they could stain the body if not washed first to get rid of excessive inking. I did wash it and it did pour some ink... yet I was afraid of putting it on. I kept this set unused until today... also I had a M35 body boxed for a year eager to get out.

The result? It fit a freaking M35 nicely!

He even rockin 'em sexy butt! Laughing

Yes, these are the sets I have been warning people about. But the chief culprit are the bicycling shorts. I'm glad you didn't ruin the detail on the track suit like I did.

I'm moving this to the appropriate thread.

How did you fit the shoes from the Windbreaker's set on your M33? I wanted to use these sneakers so bad but I tried to squeeze a TBLeague's male foot in there and it just wouldn't go.

My first option for this set was to use on a M33, but I got lazy to undress it, so I went nuts and used on this M35 body I had still on the box. I really liked how it got, so it's a keeper.

This set allows for a lot of mobility even on this huge body. I couldn't get him to squat more due to the body's limitation, not the suit.

Oh, after I washed it, I just let it soak, just like Stryker said, since I had a suspicion these side lines were way to frail. That's why they're still intact.

I used other feet. I think they are from a Hot Toys-like bent-toe type, but it has been too long to remember. Anyway, they are not TBLeague, so they can fit the footwear. To tighten the fit to the ankle peg, I used elastic cord, as illustrated in Post 122 above.

Part XIX: Art Figure Aidol Six The Arms Dealer outfit

I don't much like the Art Figure bodies, but they do produce quality sets. After the good experience with their Atlas, I decided to give some (in fact all) of the clothing that came with this set a try when I found it parted out. It is the depiction of Ulysses Klaue (by Andy Serkis) in the overrated but successful Black Panther film. I thought he made for a fun villain, and it was interesting to see Andy Serkis as himself, well, a human, for once.

The outfit is a little out there, though not impossibly so. I tried it on an M34 body, and it worked like a charm. Conceivably, it might even work on an M35, but no promises.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Afasad10

It consists of a white shirt, white socks, black shoes, blue pants, blue vest, black belt, (p)leather writsbands, a tie, and a necklace. Everything you see except for the body, suitcase, and chair is from the set.

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Afasad11

The shirt is meant to be worn with the cuffs rolled back towards the elbows, although it can be worn with them down, they just wouldn't close. The pants have a real button at the top, which is a pain to work, but otherwise work fine with their velcro "zipper." The tie is supposed to be worn loosened, but you can tie it just like a real tie, however loose or tight you choose. If I were to keep this assembled together, I might loose it, as it doesn't sit (drape) quite right. Surprisingly, the shoes fit on TBLeague's male feet, even with the socks on (by the way, I do know that black shoes don't go with white socks, but that's how the set came).

kitbash - Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XXII, January 2021) - Page 4 Afasad12

Overall, everything fits very comfortably and allows for unimpeded articulation. Considering this is a muscular M34 body, that is a very good thing. And the wristbands didn't even stain after a couple of days of being on! If any or all of this outfit could work for your TBLeague-clothing needs or if you are just thinking of upgrading the set's body, I would recommend it. You might need to work on some dewrinkling, but that's about the only issue I had.

What do you think?

It looks pretty good! And it's always nice to have more options for those larger bodies. The only thing I'd suggest is maybe ironing down that collar a bit, since it is sticking up quite high and looks somewhat out of scale. But that's just a slight tweak... : )

I agree, I would have loved to see a more extensive and lasting role for him.

I agree about the collar, although I think it is part of the design -- there isn't even a top button, as it is meant to stay open. Perhaps if I get rid of the loose tie, as I'm thinking of doing, it would sit a little more naturally? A little cautious about using an iron on something this small and delicate. Perhaps a water treatment? Also not entirely sure as to how it should look -- it isn't a very classic or common look; if the collar itself is stiff, it will ride up on top of the shoulders even when worn quite open, wouldn't it? In the film it is all over the place, in part because in some scenes it is meant to look neat and in others disheveled. I managed to pull the shirt a little farther down and into the pants and tightened the tie a bit, for a somewhat improved look:

That does look a lot better!

And yeah, I probably wouldn't have ironed it either... if I need some 1/6 fabric to stay down I would probably try 'pinning' or 'tacking' it down with some carefully hidden thread. Though your solution worked out just fine, too.

Part XX: Hegemony77 sports bottoms

Hegemony77 is a UK-based Hungarian husband-and-wife team that specializes in creating clothing for sixth-scale action figures. The assortment is mostly casual and sporty, primarily for male figures (but there are exceptions), and often enough based on specific films or movie/game characters. This makes them perfect for customizers and kitbashers and, what is more, most of the clothing can fit a range of figures, as it is made of stretchy materials (alternately, some of the clothing is specifically advertised as ideal for particular bodies). I picked up a few of the simpler items over the years (mostly sweatpants and shorts for male figures) and I wish I had picked up more, as prices have risen. Anyway, here is a quick look, although I realize many of you are familiar with their work. Only the sweatpants/shorts in the photos below are Hegemony77 work.

Thank you both, I'm glad you liked them! They are pretty great, even if the ones I went for were fairly generic (although the sweatpants do depict those of a certain company that are super-popular in Europe and especially Eastern Europe, to Ovy's delight). I wasn't looking for a specific kitbash, but they've got those too -- Arnie with the branded Gym t-shirt outfit, Freddie Mercury at Live Aid, Superman, etc. I do wish they had a wider range of styles and also more female clothing, but I suppose some of this will come down the line. Their quality is top notch indeed. One could have hoped for lower prices, but this is essentially a one-woman outfit after all, and nothing here is exactly mass-produced. They actually have some discounts going on right now. Picked up a couple more items (actually it was meant to be more than that but scaled back when I saw the price).

Part XXI: Various and Sundry Summery Things

It is far from the worst winter out here, but I felt I wanted summer at the time I shot these, so here we go. Actually, I had ordered and received (surprisingly fast) a few more Hegemony77 items, but only one appears below. It was a pair of green shorts advertised to fit the bulkier M34-M35 bodies, and you see it displayed on an M34; it would easily fit an M35, too, but smaller bodies would likely swim in them. I had also ordered a top to go with them from Hegemony77, but for once it was not stretchy enough to put on the M34. In the later photos he got a Magic Cube (SuperMCToys) wife beater (yes, I know it almost clashes, but try telling him that). Then there was a yellow and black dress for Barbie Curvy Fashionista figures, which fit quite well on an S29B, paired with Barbie (actually Ken's) flip-flops and a purse from one of the Harvey Potter sets. Finally, I had found discounted a ZY Toys set consisting of a tropical shirt, tan shorts, and brown sandals, which worked surprisingly well with an M33.

Thank you very much, and glad you agree. Yes indeed, Jesus was off to the right. Or maybe it was Santa Claus! What body? Hmm... if he's all bundled up, an M31 might be ok, but I would never insult the Son of God by giving him that. So I guess M33... But who can play the part? I don't have Ovy's long-haired Keanu, and I don't have a Jim Caviezel head... so Jason Momoa again?

Very glad you liked them. I was surprised that the ZY shirt and shorts fit, and are fully functional, even to the point of getting him to sit. The great thing about those curvy Barbie Fashionista sets is that they (judging by this one, anyway) are a little stretchy, which makes them not only fit, but also fit better, and also they don't stain (or haven't so far). Some, like this one, also look reasonably realistic. I haven't focused on female clothing in this thread, as that is already covered amply by others, who beat me to the punch. But also because I don't dare experiment with some of the more striking outfits available out there (with their dark reds, blues, and blacks) for fear of staining -- and then the range of choices is also curtailed by the large proportion of overly-sexualized or plain weird items among them. But this may be a way around that. I've been meaning to show some of those floppy-footed seamless-ankled bodies using the crutches for awhile, but need to dig them out -- they hardly see any use so I don't keep them handy.

Nice one, the buffed guy in crutches looks like he will get into his next sports accident in no time.  The crutches reminded me of A Cure for Wellness I watched the other day. Maybe you could also give them to your most hated tbleague body.

Jasons Leather sandals look very great and realistic, beats any plastic elastic sandals by far.

LOL... with those horrible wrist joints, my most hated TBLeague body will have little use of these crutches, unless it has very well-coordinated armpits. Smile Jason's sandals look pretty good and are actually leather or pleather, not sure exactly. Unless modified, they are too tight for the TBLeague foot (as can be expected), but I managed to cram it in there. Within a few hours both of the upper straps (which are fake, in the sense that you can't loosen them, the buckle is glued on top) had snapped, and I had to re-glue them together, taking the opportunity to make them just a little wider. So far so good.

Part XXII: Various hoodie and overalls sets

Looks like there is a bit of a pattern to my more recent sixth-scale clothing purchases. Whether parted out or as sets, I have ended up acquiring a couple each of hoodie and overall ensembles, for modern civilian non-glamorous figures. With the hoodies I outfitted an M33 and an M34, especially as the hoodie and pants I got from eBay seller simplehappylife were advertised as "oversize," and able to fit "Phicen M33, M34, M35, M36, World Box AT027 and fat AT018." They certainly fulfilled their promise. The other came as an actual set ("Sweater Jeans Sneakers Set A") from eBay seller acec_union, and it is listed as their brand. This set includes a hoodie ("sweatshirt"), jeans, belt, shoes, and (unlisted in the product information and not depicted in the photos) a beanie. So I played around with a few options, and outfitted an M33 with a First Rate Matt Damon head sculpt that looks much more like Kellan Lutz to me (and I consider it to be him), and with the black beanie, hoodie, belt, and jeans from the acec_union set, and some black sport shoes I already had from ages ago. Although I wasn't trying particularly hard, the outfit turned out appropriate for Kellan, right down to the shirtless-yet-wearing-a-beanie look, which was actually intended to show the detail of the jeans and belt.

The jeans have pretty fine and realistic stitching, functional pockets and belt loops; there is no leather brand label (I don't know if all jeans have one, but usually expect to see one). The belt has a functional belt buckle, and works well, despite being almost too wide for the belt loops. I was impressed that the fairly skinny jeans ended up fitting and, although pretty tight, allow good articulation.

The beanie works reasonably well, although the sculpted/molded hair beneath it would act in a way real hair would not, and the fabric has the tendency to bunch up a little at the top of the head. The hoodie works very well, and is made of a soft and stretchy material that helps it go on, look natural, and keep articulation unimpeded. The shoes have non-TBLeague feet that still fit on the TBLeague ankle pegs, and I made the fit tighter with a couple of short lengths of elastic cord.

I outfitted the M34 with a Hot Toys Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) head sculpt, and gave him the "oversize" hoodie and exercise pants from simplehappylife, socks from the Magic Cube Miles set, and a pair of Nike slides to make sure it was realistically casually unfashionable.

Everything fit reasonably easily and works comfortably, without restricting the articulation at all.

Lounging on the sofa enjoying some video gaming is therefore possible; it occurs to me that much of the seating for sixth-scale action figures tends to be a little low, resulting in somewhat odd posture.

Cuke Toys just released a couple of overalls sets consisting of overalls and a top; I picked up the blue overalls but not the top, and put it on an M33 (I forget where the bearded head sculpt came from). World Box just released its Motor Mechanic set (WB-AT031), depicting a Russian mechanic ("Volk," meaning "Wolf") who is also part of a motorcycle club ("Forever Wheels"), consisting of a head sculpt, tattooed World Box body, overalls, tank top, molded moc toe shoes, a tool canvas beg (a sort of a cross between a tool belt and a fanny pack), a selection of four tools, a sleeveless vest with the motorcycle club logo, and a tire. I gave the World Box sleeveless vest and moc toe shoes to the M33 with the bearded head sculpt; the shoes (which appear to be the same as those used in the MCC "Old Soldier" set) fit pretty well even without resorting to any customization; the curved hard plastic soles, however, do not help stability, and the height of the shoes' sides practically eliminates ankle articulation. I gave another M33 the "Black" Jack Osborne Easy & Simple head sculpt, and the remaining items I had gotten from the parted-out World Box set: the World Box overalls, tank top, and tool canvas bag; he also got the shoes from the acec_union set mentioned above. Lo and behold, with a little heating, some shoelace loosening, and a bit of effort, the TBLeague feet fit inside!

The overalls similar but different, Cuke Toys utilizing more and larger and shinier buttons, more distinctive stitching, providing a button fastening to allow the garment to tighten or loosen under the arm pit, and making it possible to adjust the lengths of the straps over the shoulders. These are realistically functional, as are the non-adjustable denim straps on the World Box overalls. Most of the World Box overalls pockets are functional; all of the Cuke Toys pockets are functional. On the whole, Cuke Toys made the more functional and refined garment, but World Box's still seems more typical to me.

As noted above, the World Box sleeveless vest has a large and detailed logo of the motorcycle club on its back, consisting of a skull image and "Forever Wheels". The World Box white tank top is distressed or outright soiled -- on purpose.

The World Box sleeveless vest zips open or closed with a functional zipper. I gave the figures a few tools I had from before (although my actual toolbox and better tools are currently misplaced).

All in all, the various sets and pieces covered in the review appear to be well made and work and look well, and to allow customizing (or at least mixing and matching, as I have done).

The overall sets look pretty good.

I'm glad you liked them too. I couldn't resist, even if I have relatively little use for them (but one never knows).

Just keep in mind that I mixed and matched, both among them and with the hoodie sets, which provided one of the pairs of shoes I used with the World Box overalls, while the World Box shoes (which are the same as those used for the MCC "Old Soldier" set) went to the figure clothed in the Cuke Toys overalls. The World Box/MCC moc toe shoes look pretty great, and it's nice that they can fit the TBLeague ankle peg without any special provisions, but they do limit articulation at the ankle and are not great for stability, given their hard plastic curved soles.

Personally, I don't particularly like hoodies (or beanies or slides) either, but I think those work pretty well too.

I would never consider that you might think up anything inappropriate! But it is left ambiguous on purpose. Smile

I stand corrected, then, about your purity of mind. Smile

Or possibly a horror show — the guy behind her with the hammer is worrisome!

See, there is a perfectly clean (if violent and messy) explanation! Smile
