Just ordered yesterday the CGL Toys Professor X, because my X-men need a Professor X and Patrick Stewart was born to play that role, and the Asmus LOTR Samwise, who is quickly going to undergo some changes to become a denizen of my post apocalyptic world.
And I'd also like a look at DFC's storehouse of wonders.
Did your Yukio come with underwear or without?
No underwear! It was originally listed when they solicited the figure right? I'm not imagining it?
Everything else more than makes up for it though. The tailoring on the clothes is excellent, materials are nice, the sword is beautiful, and they used a really fine material on the hair, more so than I'm used to seeing, so it actually moves and lays great. I'm actually hoping someone puts up the head loose, as I'm pretty fond of Rila Fukushima, and it's a great likeness. Would love to have for other projects.
The underwear was listed, but thus far everyone I know of who got the figure verified no underwear.
I'm prepared and hopefully my Yukio will be comfortable (i.e. no wedgie, no panty line, no chafing, etc.) wearing this. Even 1:6 female figures need/want comfortable underwear. Granted, I purchased A LOT of these from way back during "better times" with the vendor who created and sold them.
At the risk out outing myself as the 1/6 scale underwear pervert that I am (no really, I'm just obsessively detail oriented, I swear!) the 1/6 underwear struggle is real. I've actually put some time into looking for a steady supply of 1/6 underwear, and I'll admit my criteria can be a bit stringent. I generally assume I should put come underwear on most of the custom figures I do, especially if there's anything like a skirt or dress involved. It also helps protect phicen bodies against potential staining from other fabrics. So I look for something thin, enough to look natural at that scale, edges that are finished cleanly, without adding bulk. Usually something simple, black or white. Nothing too kinky or lingerie-ish. And reasonably priced. It's a detail that's mostly not even seen, so I don't want to spend a ton on it, but it's something I need for most figures I do, so I'd like to find a renewable resource for it that won't add an unreasonable amount of money to every build I do. I've tried sewing them myself a few times, but I'm never really happy with the results, and I think it's one of those cases where my skills just can't rise to factory produced quality.
I recently bought 1 of just about every decent looking pair I could find on AliExpress, and all but 2 options failed to live up to these standards. $7 each is the best price I could find for something I'm happy with, which is more than I want to spend, but that's apparently the price you pay to be a perfectionist.
So there you have it. Reassurances that Yukio will in fact have overpriced underwear, my admitted underwear obsession, and my latest 1/6 purchase, all in 1 post.
