Yeah that's certainly true, but even so they're still an improvement on the old TBL model. I'd rather TBL didn't make this backtrack to using seamless feet at all personally, but if they are
going there I hope they do it better than Jiaou (who in turn improved on TBL's original method, if you see what I mean).

Yeah, they're good on that level - I'd probably not bother with more of either model if these can stand on those feet.

Considering how many adult western head sculpts they've released I also understand that move. Hopefully they'll feel like they've perfected that body type now and will depart from the anime market and return to the realism and/or super hero genre for the next release.
Hm yes, these heads seem more 'lolly' (I may be spelling that wrongly) than 'anime' which I've always been a bit uncomfortable with myself, and it may be colouring my overall opinion unfavourably.

And additional skin tones. Naturally.
African and Indo-Asian next please TBL! Come ON
(They can certainly do an 'African' skintone, as they've proven already with previous models and the M36. Just stick that old (unreleased?) Eartha Kitt sculpt on an athletic African female body, already!)
And back to these new bodies - er... is it just me, or do those bikinis look all nasty and plasticky? If so, they'll indent the skin.
