Giantoy and Monkey Depot have become my two favorite dealers. Giantoy for figures and head sculpts, Monkey depot for parted out stuff.  Both have been extremely reliable.

Monkey Dep are fantastic, great for part-outs as you say, and I've also got quite a few rare/spare head sculpts (The SHCC Vampirella, both Arhians, both Red Sonjas, Painkiller Jane, Cleo) at very reasonable prices from them.

They take a while to reach me (almost a month sometimes - they come to the UK from the USA through Germany, for some bizarre reason), but they always get here in the end.


EDIT: Staying on topic, Royal Mail tracking tells me I should have one of these bodies - an S32 - by tomorrow afternoon! That's less than a week!

No mention of entering/clearing customs either, which makes me wonder if GianToy have got a domestic warehouse/outlet/distributor in the UK...

Ooh, exciting ! I’m both curious and weirdly nervous to know how it turns out.

Agree with all you've said about Monkey Depot. It's also where I got the parted out Tomoe head sculpt that I styled to make my Kamiko figure. I should have bought two, as I now have two Kamiko bodies, but that particular sculpt cost $59.00 US each, so I got only one. I've gotten into the habit of checking them out every day as they post updates on new arrivals every day. You have to check often because the good stuff gets snapped up quickly.

Giantoy seems to ship stuff by different methods and routes for different continents.

I'm excited to see this body in action, it seems very beautiful! I'm gonna get one for myself when I make the money for sure Smile Hmm wonder what outfit I'll put her in. I want something "K-Poppish" so she can be the dancer of the gang (a gang that's full of mostly female warriors).

Right, I've just received and unpacked my S32A, so these are strictly my first impressions. I'll post up some comparison pics with other models later today (hopefully).

On the whole, I'm pleased to report that I'm pleased. Smile

First off, side by side this body is no taller than TBL's 'average' body so that concern can be put to bed. Isolated, it might seem taller, but this is purely an optical illusion thanks to the longer legs, shorter arms and body and narrower shoulders. This body seems tall, but it is not skinny. I'd say this is an ideal body for characters in the 16-21 age range.

It's something of a Frankenstein's Model, as I predicted. The legs are noticeably longer than usual, but not particularly shapely (less so than say an S18/19). The upper body is basically that of an S24/25, with less 'pneumatic' breasts. The torso is toned, defined but not overly-muscular. The narrow shoulders are a little too narrow for my personal taste, and this jury is out on the arms - I'm still trying to decide if they seem too short, or not. The derriere is shapely without being overly-exaggerated. The upper and lower genital detail is surprising - I'd say that while sculpted differently the lower detailing is the most, erm, comprehensive since the S07/09. Oddly though there is no, um, 'second orifice' (I don't find that a problem myself but at the risk of seeming overly-interested, it just seems odd to explicitly detail one orifice and then not detail it's neighbour at all).

Happiest of all, I can report that the stiffness of movement (especially in the arms) that I found hampered each of the three S28/29 models in my collection is absent here. This body seems to be as flexible as usual, and more so at the neck and waist.  I'm persuaded by this to buy yet another S28/29 (from GianToy this time) in a few months or so just to check that that first batch of those wasn't defective.

Over all, I'm happy with this, and I will definitely purchase at least an S33B and perhaps more of each.

I'm trying out poses with it now, and yes, this is definitely a dancer's body. Smile

I think the other good news is that the smaller upper body should mean it's easy enough to find outfits that will fit.

This does sound promising. It might even work for someone like Charlize Theron -- who often seems like she's all legs (particularly in those Dior: Jadore commercials).

One thing I'm curious about with this body is the neck size.... mainly because it seems the upper body is quite petite, so I'm wondering how the neck turned out, proportionately. I have to admit I never liked the neck on the s17b, as I found it a bit weirdly shaped and too thick for the body. I just wonder how they have handled the neck paired with narrow shoulders on this one...

The natural light here is awful at the moment so these photos are a little iffy, but they should give you some idea. Censored for the squeamish but not too much (or too little, hopefully!) Stryker's Charlize Theron suggestion prompted me to put a Painkiller Jane h/s on the body (seeing as it's a better facial likeness than any of the 'official' CT sculpts out there). It's not a great match tone-wise, but there it is.

The body actually seems altogether 'chunkier' than the promo pics suggest, but personally I'm fine with that. The angle of the last batch of pics is slightly downward, too, so that probably plays into that perception (and yes, the neck and wrists do look a little fat).

Interestingly, in all of these pics the body looks more like a taller S24/25 than it does in hand.

Thanks for the comparison pics. It looks pretty good. I guess the neck and wrist issue isn’t going to go away anytime soon.

Looks quite good. The neck articulation, at least, is apparently an improvement; the look at the wrists (due to the way the silicone is molded) remains an issue as before. Thanks for the photos.

Oh, definitely a body with nice form! I think it'll really fit asian headsculpts nicely as well in order to create your own pop group like this one Smile The lady being focused on, named Aisha from the Everglow group, seems to have a similar figure as with this TBLeague body.

To be honest, with the wrists - and to a lesser extent here the ankles - if anything it's worse than usual as there is no tapering of the lower arms toward the wrist with this model. At least on most older models they made an attempt at it even if it didn't convince entirely, but they don't seem to be bothering at all here. I don't know if it's a design choice or a moulding problem due to the shortness of the arm and/or thickness of the skin, but it's the aspect of this model I'm least pleased with. The skin certainly seems thicker over all though (when bending the elbow the skeleton is less visible than usual) so that might be a factor too.

As usual these are problems that TBL will probably address with a second edition if you're prepared to wait that long (and if it even bothers you in the first place). The second edition S20a, S22a and S23b are certainly different to the first runs of those models.

The wrist issue was there with the 25/26 and the 28/29 as well, but with the latter, they managed to hide it a little by making the hands (and feet) larger.

It’s not a massive problem for me personally, as I will be covering up the wrists and ankles with clothing, but aesthetically I agree it is a bit distracting when viewed ‘nude’. But I feel that way about most of the tbleague bodies, to some degree or another...

Same here. I generally cover the wrists with wrist bands or guards of some sort, and the feet are usually in boots or footware stockings that cover these issues up. The same goes for the nude figures. This is an area where you can not really have perfection.

I fixed this by gluing (don't panic) the wrists and the hands, which palms point forwards, with paper glue, the one that easily peal. For this the thick side of the wrist follows the thick side of the hand, so when the palms face inwards, I have nice thin wrists in the view.

That is interesting. No damage to the silicone and to the plastic? Doesn't stick to the metal? And no unsightly twist effect over the lower arm? Perhaps you could share a photo. I like the idea, but I imagine it would problematize swapping hands, but I suppose one could peal it off and reapply.

That is correct, no harm as I know, you can peel it and reapply. In case we are seeing different kinds of glue, the one I am referring to is made of gluten and water, and is water-soluble. You might want to dust the silicon with powder so it peals more easily, and scratch the wrists of the plastic hands so the glue sticks better to them.

And thanks to the member that greeted me.

UPDATE:

Hm. Well. Unhappily, I can now report two small but worrisome skin-tears already on this one, to 'compliment' the damage to two of the three new S28/29s I own. Older bodies seem to be noticably more durable than these, and I'm also finding similar issues with newer editions of older models.  I'm now wondering if there's been a change in the formula or they're now using a lower-grade silicone, because problems with three out of four new bodies seems like more than just bad luck. Sure, these things can be repaired or modded around, but that's hardly the point.

I'm not doing anything unusual with these latest bodies either - no extreme posing, and I'm storing them in a 'neutral' stance - so I'm beginning to have serious doubts about how they are being manufactured, now.

I've got a Nancy In Hell set on order (which uses a 28/29 body by the looks of it) and I'll (eventually) be getting an S33 (either as a standalone or as part of the new Vampirella set) so we'll see how they work out. But frankly, if I have any more problems with them, then I think I'll be sticking with the older models from then on...

Thanks for the info.  That makes think twice about ordering a newer figure for sure. I may just do what you are doing until TBLeague sorts the issue out. They surely will if the problem persists and sales plummet.

It's a real dilemma. The two new body designs are arguably their best yet (certainly the most realistic), but in my experience the build quality seems seriously lacking.

But yeah - I have bodies two or three years older than these that have no problems at all, but I shudder to imagine the condition these new bodies will be in in three year's time.

Sometimes when a company expands too quickly, it experiences a loss in quality control. That's when complaints about the product start piling up and sales start to drop. At that point, they can either fix the problem, or lose money and sales to the competition until they go out of business.

This being said, I was going to buy one of the new bodies very soon as I am working on a new figure and have been buying parts from Monkey Depot, but given your report, I'll probably order one of the older figures instead and wait and see if they sort themselves out.

Sorry to hear of your problems with these— can you elaborate on where the skin tears occurred? Just curious in case I get one, what to be aware of...

Here's one of the skin-tears, just so you don't need to only rely on my opinion of it:

NEW PRODUCT: [High-heeled slender] TBLeague: 1/6 rubberized super movable long-legged narrow shoulder female body - a total of two S32A & S33B - Page 2 DSCN5390

As you can see, it's at the shoulder joint, but I stress I have NOT put the arm into any extreme positions.

I've done an emergency repair with silicone glue to avoid it worsening. With some tidying-up and a few added cosmetic touches it will hopefully look like a scar.

The other skin-tear is in an 'intimate area' so NSFW.



I hope I can salvage it as I've got the new Avril Lavigne sculpt on this body and it's a near-ideal match (see below).

Ah, is that the shoulder crease area?

I’m curious because I have noticed that area seems a little thin/delicate on my s25b and s27b, as well. I’ve been doing a lot of colouring with oil pastels and thus noticing areas where the silicone is quite thin, since I have to be careful how much pressure I use in those areas. The other spot that seemed thin is the area between the ‘crotch’ and the upper thighs.

Since these smaller bodies have been my first experience with tbleague bodies in general, it didn’t occur to me that this might be a flaw, I just sort of presumed that in certain smaller or slimmer designs, that there is only so thick the silicone can be.

Not trying to be an apologist for tbleague as it definitely seems like there are some QC issues with the more recent bodies, but just sharing my perspective.

Ah, yes! And those are the two areas where the tears have occured on my S32, and, if you remember my earlier review I opined that these bodies were basically upscaled 24/25s (I only have a sole S24 in my collection).

I think you're onto something!

 Interesting -- glad I was not imagining that these areas seem *especially* delicate. I've had to be incredibly careful when colouring them, so much so that I don't dare put pressure from the pastel stick directly onto the 'skin', but rather have been using a makeup sponge to gently apply the colour. All the same, it's been hard to get the pastel to stick in those spots, and I've sort of given up and just accepted it's going to be a little lighter in certain areas. I think this is the reality of these smaller bodies, that the silicone is just super thin. Which is not to say that's an excuse for it tearing so easily, all the same. :/

I'm still interested in getting one of these, as even with the issue you mention, it would still be an upgrade from the current crappy Kumik body the headsculpt is on. I need a body that I can colour and that can actually stand on its own two feet and hold a pose. I realize there are older tbleague models that fit that bill as well, but I just happen to prefer the shape of this one over many of the previous ones. That said, I may wait a little while to see if further 'batches' improve on this issue or not.

@GeeWillikers - Thanks to your posts, I've decided to order one S33B for a bash in mind.
I just want to know if your S32A feet are the regular-sized ones (same as S16 through S23)? Or are they the larger feet like the S28A/S29B?

I'm pretty sure they're the regular ones - they're definitely not the larger 28/29 ones, anyway. The pegs are also regular sized.

I've not had any further problems with mine by the way. Smile
