You are right about the t-shirt being redundant, though I wonder how much it would have really helped if I had kept it off. The bigger problem with the pants not closing didn't have anything I could have removed standing in the way.

I can see you put a lot of efforts into it....he at least looks good with standing and sitting pose, I like he still can sitting like that last picture....In face ZC, ZY,POPTOYS, and some of the "Tony Stark specialized" suits are not friendly to seamless at all, even M31, I hope there will be someone starts doing suits with a little bit "elasticity" material, really need that Laughing Laughing Laughing

I am hoping so too. XRF, who had produced some of the clothing appearing in some of the earliest posts in this thread, are now set to release two versions of a long-sleeve plaid shirt and jeans set, so I am hoping eventually they get to suits and uniforms too. It says they are ideal for DAM and Soldier Story bodies, but their earlier releases worked very well with the seamless TBLeague ones too.

Part XIII: DID Fringe Walter Bishop clothing on TBLeague M32

I picked up a few of the items from the DID Walter Bishop set from Fringe, including the pants, striped shirt, checkered shirt, white lab coat, and shoes. I tried them out on my usual go-to, M33, and they were a very tight fit (though they did fit). So I decided to go with M32, which was generally better as a fit (although its shoulders in particular are about the same width and still pose a bit of a challenge). The checkered shirt fit better than the striped one. The lab coat worked well (it even buttons in the normal, realistic way), and the pants allowed for comfortable articulation. Of course, for clothing this covering once could just as easily use a hard-plastic open-jointed body...

I thought so too. But again, like we've both noted before, such covering outfits could just as well be served by a more traditional hard plastic body. Which makes me wonder -- why did they make the pants so wide; it probably helped with getting them on the TBLeague bodies, but they were not meant for them.

Another great find of the shirt for seamless wide shoulder!!! The only thing I don't happy with is the pants...it looks 80's and nice with dance guys but not this "doctor" or something similar professional man like him....and the books are made from paper or plastic?

The character depicted in the set is an older British gentleman (though I don't know what he plays or exactly what time period the show is set in), so perhaps he was a little behind on what we consider fashionable. I don't really know.
Some of the books are with real paper pages (the ones lying horizontally on the desk), but the standing set is a single piece of plastic (or was it wood?).

Part XIV: XRF sets XM05A and XM05B

XRF just released their plaid long-sleeved shirt and blue jeans sets XM05A (red) and XM05B (blue). The clothing sets are simple, consisting of only 3 items each: a plaid long-sleeved shirt, bue jeans, and a leather-like belt. The jeans and belt are identical in the two versions of the set, only the shirts differ in base color. I tried out the sets on TBLeague's M33 (slimmer) and M34 (bulkier). Especially on M34, they were a tight fit, but as you can see work quite well, allowing for plenty of articulation. The jeans work well with boots, as shown in the last photo (using the recent ADD Toys muscle body from HERE). The detail is pretty good, and all the pockets are useful. The pants close with velcro, the shirt with buttons (I left those at the neck and left cuff unbuttoned).

I don't care for the shirts, but those jeans and belt look great!! On all three bodies, too!
That ADD body just looks amazing. And hands in pocket! Awesome! Very Happy

I'm not 100% liking the way the jeans fold in the top front on the M33 and AD02. So I'm thinking the M34 is the winner here. Even though I really like the baggy look on the AD02...

Great buy!

Thank you. The shirts do look a little bulky, although this type of shirts sometimes are bulky indeed. The ADD body does look amazing, but the problem is that this (the look) is its only advantage -- working with it I was reminded of what a pain it is to pose it and especially get it to stand -- and these are not even action poses. The trick to hands in pockets (in case you don't know or don't realize what I've done in this instance) is to remove the actual hands, and just tuck in the pegs. I was just trying to illustrate that the pockets are functional. Some outfits do have pockets large enough for the actual hands to fit in, although that usually involves stretchier fabrics and what look like oversized pockets. The jeans fold is largely my problem. I want and expect my figures to be articulated enough to sit (the ADD body is already pretty limited there), so I purposefully pulled the pants up far enough to have a bit of a fold of material at the thigh and at the knees. I may not have pulled the pant legs down to smoothen them enough for the just standing photos. The point is, that fold need not be there, depending on how you put the jeans on your figure.

skywalkersaga wrote:Dang that AD02 body looks so good like that that!

Yes, it does, doesn't it? Again, I wish it performed as well as it looked. Or that TBLeague (without changing anything else) applies the same paint job to its bodies.

Thanks and welcome. Awesome, now I know how to create a winter version of mini-you (besides Darth Stryker and Markos the Greek hoplite prototypes)! Smile If you use one of the thinner bodies (M32, M33), you might be able to tuck the shirt in. The sleeves were a pain even on the M33, by the way, though the pants went on it a lot easier than on the M34.

Part XV: Easy & Simple jeans and shoes with ADD Toys wife beater

It seems like I've been picking up denim and denim-related items for a while now, so here is another, and it ended up even more Country than some of the earlier ones. The worn/faded jeans and Speedcross shoes come from the Easy & Simple Special Mission Unit Tear 1 Operator (so does the head, but it has been de-necked); the wife beater is from ADD Toys' War Wolves (the clothed version) -- I think (or otherwise a different Logan set?); the jewelry is from DAM Gangster Kingdom Van Ness set. The shoes and clothes fit quite well on TBLeague's M33 body, although getting them on (the clothes, not the shoes, which were easy) can be a bit of a struggle. I was actually surprised that the Easy & Simple jeans not only fit, but they can zip/button (actually it is velcro, which does not have a particularly strong hold), and allow enough articulation to make the figure sit down. The jeans pockets are functional, as are the belt loops, but as you can see, there is no leather brand patch, unlike some other sixth-scale jeans we have been getting. They are pretty tight, and difficult to fit over boots. The stitching and cut look pretty good to me. And yes, the wife beater is distressed (or more bluntly, sweat-stained). All in all, I think a pretty decent set of options.

Okay now, I gotta say: That's sexy. The jeans fit perfectly! And I didn't realize the M33 is that buff! Looks less so in the product shots with that James Franco head sculpt. (Nevermind. I erred.)

I would really like to see a TBL body that would be suitable for a trained but not so buff male. Or female for that matter. They should look at tennis players for reference, who imho have some of the most balanced physiques.

ETA: I'm also dreaming of a male tbleague body like what you describe, Diana. Or at least, something slightly taller and a little more lanky yet still muscled when compared to the m33. Right now for slimmer muscled bodies you only really have the m32 and m36, and those are very nice but still quite specific body types themselves.

Thanks, glad you liked it. If they made the jeans from something a bit stretchier, they would fit even better, and impede even less. But like I wrote above, I was actually surprised they worked this well. If you do get them, keep in mind the velcro is rather weak.

I agree completely on the desirability of TBLeague making more lean fit bodies -- male and female alike. M33 is one of their best bodies (fit but not too bulky), unfortunately marred by the decision to make it a little shorter and provide optional ankle extenders. They defeat the point of a (relatively) seamless body and are very difficult to get on and (worse) off. I refuse to use them. As a result, the body looks just a little short-legged (and by extension long-armed). I would love for them to revisit it and get it right, without the damn extenders. And if they added the sort of paint application (but everywhere) that ADD Toys did on much of their "muscle" War Wolves figure (without changing anything else except maybe providing additional bent-toe feet), they might reach something like perfection.

Exactly. Well said. And good to know about the extenders. I wasn't aware of that issue. Bummer.

The ‘long-armed’ effect is due to both the shortness of the body itself ( as GF noted), and also (imo) the fact that the torso is also just a little too short/compact in comparison to said arms. I feel like a longer torso (+ longer legs w/ no ankle extenders) would help a lot. Also, needs slightly less chunky wrists/forearms (but that is a recurring problem with lots of tbleague bodies). Really hope to see them revisit an m33-esque body with those kinds of improvements.

Thank you. If you are ready to dedicate your figure to a permanent long-pants or tall-boots look, the extenders won't show and would be fine -- but God help you if you need and try to remove them. Smile

Here is a link to my detailed review of M33 from a while back:
http://www.mwctoys.com/REVIEW-120916b.htm

I probably posted some additional photos on the old site:

Maybe the arms are a bit long in and of themselves. And as we have discussed before, a different, poseable underlying skeleton solution for the lower arms that allows correct alignment between it and the hands would help with any of these seamless bodies.

Part XVI: more jeans and other casual wear

Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XIX, October 2020) - Page 3 Stbl5610

Yes, that is why this thread exists: sometimes even a relatively "average" seamless body (and not just the male ones) can have problems fitting into various garments designed for the more conventional hard-plastic bodies. The Threezero Carl Grimes plaid shirt looked excellent, but even in its own set it wasn't meant to actually button; perhaps that should have been a clue. As it were, I could get it far enough to where M33 looked as if it was in the process of taking it off, but not far enough to make it look like it actually fit... but anyway...

Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XIX, October 2020) - Page 3 Stbl5110

The Art Figures jeans, belt, and boots (not to mention the head) from the Atlas set work very well with the M33 body. The pockets are functional, and the jeans allow sitting naturally.

Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XIX, October 2020) - Page 3 Stbl5210

That said, pretty much everything covered in this installment was a tight fit and required a modicum of patience and effort. To get the Art Figures shoes to fit I used CooModel feet and improved the security of the fit by inserting a bit of fabric elastic cord under the ankle peg. The harder plastic curved sole doesn't help stability.

Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XIX, October 2020) - Page 3 Stbl5310

Lionel Messi (yes, the head is not the best color match for the body) wears one of the three ACNToys distressed jeans and belt sets, with a DID striped long-sleeved top, also on an M33 body. The pockets are functional, and the jeans allow the body to sit naturally.

Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XIX, October 2020) - Page 3 Stbl5410

The Frank Stealth Set by OneSix-Verse provided the head and very worn jeans for this M32 body; the sweater comes from Hot Toys' Aldo Rayne; the Speedcross shoes are from Easy & Simple. Once again, the pockets are functional and the jeans allow the body to sit naturally. The sweater fits well, but is not a good luck, probably should have gone with the Frank Stealth Set long-sleeved shirt instead.

Clothing TBLeague / Phicen Seamless Bodies (updated: Part XIX, October 2020) - Page 3 Stbl5510

This one came as a surprise. After (unsurprisingly) failing to get any of the above jeans on the M34 body, the khaki shorts from the Ujindou Edward MacDonald set proved a viable option. The belt cords were a horror, but worked out in the end. The shoes are Magic Cube mens tactical boots, the telnyashka is from DAM (or DID?). I used some elastic cord to tighten the fit of the ankle peg in the shoe opening.

What do you think?

Thank you, I do too. The Aldo sweater seems to be stitched in a way that makes it sit pretty awkwardly -- at least on this body. I was pleased that it fit easily, just not happy with the look. Then again, it is a somewhat odd body (M32).

As for the ankles... You know how sometimes, even if you are lucky enough for the ankle pegs (in this case TBLeague's ankle pegs) to fit inside the opening on a molded shoe or another company's foot, the fit is just a little too loose and, combined with the extra weight of the steel and silicone body, this makes it easier for the body to shift and collapse? One can tighten the fit in various ways -- DeltaForceChung suggested layers of glue or nail polish applied to the surface of the hole-like opening; you have mentioned wrapping some electrical tape around the ankles; I sometimes stuff some scotch tape or foamies for a tighter fit. Well, this time I had a piece of elastic cord (the kind of thing that is now hot for use with masks) lying around, so I cut a couple of small lengths (maybe 1 cm/0.75 inches), placed them above the opening, then plugged the ankle peg in, trapping the elastic cord between the peg and the hole and tightening the fit. One can use more than one length of elastic cord, if a tighter fit is needed. Worked pretty well.

Really? It isn't the sweater itself that I mind, just the way it ended up looking on this body seems a little off to me. What you don't see is the added magic of a little bit of Scotch tape holding the sweater tight from the back. Smile What I do like about the sweater is that it matches those shoes and seems to go with those very soiled jeans, making for a grungy, drab look.

I knew this was coming after using two types of Telnyashakas! But no alcohol allowed in the support group. Do you know where I could find some 1/6 Adidas jogpants that won't stain? (I vaguely remember getting some sort of mens sporting set with an oversized David Beckham head a long time ago, but the jogpants and/or shorts stained like crazy. I may have thrown them away in disgust.) I never thought of this head sculpt as Guy Pierce, although apparently it is or at least some others thought so too. It came with the World Box WB-002 body, one of their earliest super durable body offerings.

Haha I totally think he looks like Pearce, although I don't know which character the sculpt might be based on. Would look cool with glasses to make that LA confidential dude.
(Maybe a custom by rollotomasi? ;D)

I only have one 1/6 Jogpants, but a fake no Adidas one. I can ask my Russian-collecting customer, his guys wear a lot of Adidas. Although they have plastic bodies mostly.

I found an eBay seller from China who seems to be advertising something along those lines (may not have the right number of white stripes though) that appears to fit a TBLeague male body. Will report in this thread when it arrives. Should I get a Putin head sculpt for it? Smile

Ye, good luck sir. The plus side on getting a Putin with yogpants, you won't need a shirt. Wouldn't fit the M37 body anyway.

@Gub - Clothes don't fit Support Group... damn funny stuff!
The cups look so tiny in their hands, it looks like those small disposable cups when taking meds, in their case, they're popping 'roids!

With the timing, I think the Worldbox AT-002 was based on Guy Pearce's character, Aldrich Killian in Iron Man 3.

Regarding LA Confidential, yes i'd like to see a 1/6 Sgt. Exley with a 1/6 Kim Basinger.

What a movie!

Glad you found it funny. The cups are meant to be disposable cups; not sure quite the medication kind, but disposable nonetheless. They have a little pseudo starbucks logo on them.

Hmm, I completely forgot Guy Pearce was in an Iron Man movie; interesting how little I remember about them. I suppose the head sculpt could be him, after all, it's just not a very perfect depiction Smile

I love LA Confidential. But in my usual confusion about most films (except for Star Wars and a handful of others), I thought your screenname derived from a different Kevin Spacey film, The Usual Suspects. But obviously you're right.

Haha that would be Keyser Söze, which incidentally is my username (spelled differently) at another forum. Got to watch that again on Netflix.

Part XVII: Military and casual wear

A long time ago I got a custom Black Hawk Down figure from eBay (DAM 75th Ranger CHALK Leader head with Dragon US Army Ranger Delta outfit and accessories). I tried it all out on the M33 body and to my surprise it fit. As can be expected, the pants and the long sleeves were a challenge, but in the end, it was a success.

He can even sit without trouble.

I also tried the Sideshow Jack Burton jeans and the Soldier Story Guy Whidden shirt on an M33, with an Art Figures Atlas belt and Triad Toys dress boots. Again, a tight fit, but it worked. The shirt can be buttoned, but it has tiny functional buttons and I didn't want to mess with them more than absolutely necessary.

Again, the jeans allow him to sit without trouble.

Finally, an illustration of the elastic cord method for tightening the fit of the ankle peg into non-TBLeague foot/footwear openings. The two-part ThreeZero boots from the new Jon Snow were altered (widened) to accommodate the larger ankle pegs of a Blitzway body (without much success), then altered again to fit TBLeague's (by building them up with Kneadatite), but were still just a little loose. The addition of a couple of small sections of elastic cord did the trick.

What do you think?

They all look pretty good, Ian. I like the Burton Jeans and Triad boots look. And thanks for the pictures on the ankle adjustments.
