I saw a video on youtube that said after soap & water to apply baby powder or cornstarch or something similar to the body...Is this correct?


Yes. You might not even need soap if the body is not too dirty or stained -- just a water rinse may help. To keep it gentle and safe just in case, I'd say pat dry. You can also use make up silicone powder. All of these powders work fine, apparently, though some or most might give you a dusty look if you use flash when taking photos. You can rub in the powder with your fingers or with a soft paintbrush or with an actual make up brush.

Speaking of stains (from clothing, etc), not to worry too much. Give it a couple of days and the silicone might have absorbed them to the point where they might not be apparent. If that doesn't happen, wash gently with soap and water, then follow the process just covered. If there is still a stain, supposedly repeated application of acne products containing benzoyl peroxide can eventually remove the stain (of course, remove the protective powder by washing first, then reapply after you're done).

Here is the staining and cleaning thread:

They are both meant to be Arnold Schwarzenegger's body, aren't they?


M35 is even bulkier than M34. Both are theoretically suitable for Arnold, although in some of his film appearances (e.g., in Conan the Destroyer) he was (purposefully) less bulky than either. There are some comparison photos in my review (very photo heavy) --

1/6Novice wrote:3) What is the secret (if there is any) to putting on clothes on Seamless bodies?

Saran wrap or slightly harder/thicker plastic wrap helps a lot, which is not to say I always use it. Sometimes it is difficult to get off the figure once you've put it on -- depending on how tight and covering the clothing involved is. You certainly don't have to apply it over the whole figure  (e.g., if it is a question of helping you with a pair of jeans, wrap the two legs separately -- and if possible not too tightly, so that you could pull out the wrap later -- and that should be enough). Remember that the silicone flesh is squeezable, and use that when you try to stuff it into tight sleeve and pant leg openings -- in essence you can massage the muscles into them. A good coating of protective powder is also a good start, as it makes the silicone surface less tacky.

1/6Novice wrote:4) How...fragile/delicate is the rubbery material that is used on Seamless bodies? Will it melt above a certain room temperature? Relating to #3, will RC Shock oil damage them? I assume something with Petroleum distillates would.


It is not that fragile -- I've purposefully cut up one (as have you), and that took quite an effort. It will not melt at any room temperature. Heating the hard plastic hand sculpts with a blow dryer (or hot water) is a good idea when swapping them, and even that does not damage the neighboring part of the seamless body -- though I would advise doing it carefully and sparingly just in case. Of course, I wouldn't put it in the oven or throw it in the fire and expect it to come out ok. I think humidity is a bigger problem than heat, so keep that in mind, and store with the silica desiccant packets they come with. And keep them well-powdered.

1/6Novice wrote:5) I've only bought Phicen/TBL bodies, Are the other seamless/nonseamless bodies as 'good'? Jiaou, Hot Toys, Etc?


No. Jiaou comes closest, but it uses TPE instead of silicone, and that is a more fragile material (someone explained it is made of the same stuff as Styrofoam) and easier to damage, especially if you're trying to modify it with oil pastels or whatever; it also stains more easily. Jiaou bodies have almost the same range of articulation, but not quite, and no full metal skeleton (only metal joints), which makes the experience both more limited and more frustrating. There are some issues with the sculpt, too, although they provide more skintone choices (though beware of "black" which is not). That said, I've dedicated a few Jiaou bodies to some figures. Hot Toys does not have a full seamless body; the partial seamless applications they have are reputedly limiting articulation and not very hardy. Stryker can tell you about a true fully seamless body out there, but it comes only as a single female model and has its own issues and limitations.

1/6Novice wrote:6) Do HT & TBL hands use the same size/shape wrist connections? If I bought a HT product, would it need to be altered to fit a Seamless body?


Yes, about the same. HT hands, by the way, are very often oversized (notoriously so), in part because they are scaled to look good with clothing in this scale, which is itself often slightly off scale. The TBLeague hands (smaller) and feet (larger) are scaled correctly to the bodies themselves. Most 1/6-scale hands would work with TBLeague wrist pegs (it is advisable to heat up the hard plastic before removing or popping on).

1/6Novice wrote:7) If I wanted to build a diorama, what material would be best? I.E. Most durable, yet soft enough to cut easily.


That really depends on the diorama in question. Foam board might be a good idea, but don't get it wet or it will warp. Typically, a diorama would be made up of a number of parts, so I'm assuming you mean the overall background. For that you can have high-resolution photos printed out on large sheets of matte paper and taped/pinned/held by magnets onto foam board or some other backing. You can also use a printed image as the flooring. Then populate the area in front with furniture and figures, etc. Like here:

https://onesixthfigures.forumotion.com/t1862-star-wars-a-lone-scoundrel-story

https://onesixthfigures.forumotion.com/t611-fanboys#9195

You might even get away with using the bottom part of your background image as the ground -- provided it is suitable and that you have enough of it, like here:

https://onesixthfigures.forumotion.com/t1794-teutonic-knight-by-china-toys-review (forest)

Or, if you have a large enough and high-resolution enough screen (and high-resolution enough photos), you can try projecting the background by displaying it on the screen, like here:

It's so hard to pick only 3, but I'll do my best to pull from memory my top ones.

#1 - Old School Lara Croft is top rank for me. I haven't seen a decent version of her yet for sale. All of her parts could be easily used in other projects.

#2 - MK girls: Sonya, Kitana, Jade and Mileena, specially from the MK3 game (simple yet iconic). Why no love for MK characters in 1/6th market? I know this one was cheating, with 4 picks in one spot, but... hard to split them.

#3 - I-No, from Guilty Gear. She's an interesting and unique character with a lot of interesting parts (her guitar is mandatory, but could also come with a mic+stand and an amp). Her costume isn't very simple but not overly complicated. Even if you're not familiarized with the character or the game, I believe it's appealing and has room for anyone to easily tweak and make their own creation.

God, there's so many... but these are my top 3 (6, technically... 4 if you count Kitana, Jade and Millena as mere palette swaps... still not 3...).

Now you see why he was selected to play Bond. He was only a passable actor and he could barely speak English. He was chosen purely for his looks.



And yet Ian Fleming was so impressed with Connery in the role of Bond that he re-wrote the character in his later novels to make him half Scottish, half Swiss.  


Only after Connery received intensive lessons in elocution, deportment, and acting. Fleming initially thought he was an uncouth brute entirely unsuited for the role.


Interesting.  I did not know that. Still, whoever taught him must have done a good job as Connery as Bond is #3 on the American Film Institute list of movie heroes, behind Harrison Ford / Indiana Jones (#2) and Gregory Peck / Atticus Finch (#1)

Moonbase Alpha Male wrote:Yeah, sorry. Yes it is. Because Reverend Spooky is totally The Man on 1/6 music subjects, and the Radio Kings rock, I wanted to give him a complete answer with a better pic of the Running Press compared side by side to a couple of other 1/6 turntables I have, that I'm trying to find in my stuff. Reverend, if that delay made it seem I was ignoring your straight-forward question, I apologize.



Turn, Turn, Turn… (A Tale of 3 Turntables + 1)

Topics tagged under 3 on OneSixthFigures 40678728065_8d73c1dd7c_c

#1 Reverend Spooky was inquiring about the Running Press Table, though he may have already got one by now. Anyway for general interest here’s a better pic. $12.95 US. It comes with 3 LPs and each one plays a different 30 seconds of music, which doesn’t mean much to me for picture-taking purposes. I erroneously assumed they would actually spin (which would show as a nice blur in a pic) but they don’t. I think the turntable itself works in scale but the actual records look too big in the figure’s hand.

#2 From the World’s Smallest” Series, @$8 US. Unquestionably it is too small. Otherwise it would be just perfect. Nicely detailed. The record spins, a “strobelight” lights up. I am trying to remember if anybody ever made a record player, for kids maybe, that was smaller and played 45 rpms only. If so this could be a 1/6 version of that. It spins fast enough for 45 rpm.

#3 Rolling Stones Portable Record Player ornament. I have this but I can’t find it. Fun! It spins, plays Gimme Shelter. I was torn about converting it from a Rolling Stones promo item to a more generic portable record player. SO I made a plain cardboard insert for the lid, and put white tape on the front. Now I can have it both ways – or I could, if I could just find it. I believe they made similar ornaments for Elvis Presley, maybe others.

#4 This is one that I don’t have, I wish I did. It was a Hallmark Christmas Ornament in 2016 but it was sold out everywhere before Christmas, so I couldn’t find one when I got my general run of Ornaments for 1/6 on Boxing Day that year. Like the Running Press it detects different “records,” these being Christmas-sy. Scale seems good but I haven't had one in hand.

ReverendSpooky wrote:Damn MBAM, thanks for posting these! I did order the running press one, and it came in yesterday. And I completely agree with your assessment, that it's perfect looking in scale, even if the records look oversized. I tried it with one of my records, and it looks so good. I'm definitely going to do a dark brown wash on the base to get the wood grain to pop. The center spindle is a little big to fit my records, so I may either drill my records out a touch, or replace it with a thinner metal rod. The platter is bigger than the record, but that's not really uncommon. I may replace it with something smaller, but I really could leave as is. Over all, it's EXACTLY what I wanted when I made my own, and I'm so happy with it. Really appreciate the heads up on it.

The world's smallest really does look great, and I do remember there being those kids players for 45s back in the day. That Rolling Stones one is super cool too! Give Me Shelter may be my favorite Stones song , so bonus! I know you can't find it now, but do you remember, size wise, how it scaled against the rest? It is quite cool.

The Christmas one is delightfully retro, although the reindeer on the front does kinda detract from it's uses. I remember someone on OSW mentioning a few years ago Hallmark doing an ornament (I think for Downtown Abbey) of a phonograph, but I never found in store. If it's the one I found googling just now, it might not have been to scale anyway.

Oh man, don't get me started on phonographs now. The Downton Abbey ornament one works well. It may be very marginally underscale but phonographs weren't all a standard size, and it probably helps that phonographs are more remote to us than record players, historical, never a part of our day to day experience. Oh gosh, depressing thought, that's probably how "kids nowadays" relate to the record players. The most common phonograph for 1/6 would be from the "brass pencil sharpeners" series, and isn't bad. The horn looks credible so that phonograph only looks small if you look closely at the record area. There is also a phonograph made by ReMent or one of those "gashapon foods" companies, but that one is definitely too small.

I remember the Stones portable record player being perfect -- slightly less wide than the Running Press but a bit taller, and of course the lid is permanently up. I always take a "scale demo pic" of incoming items so I don't know why I didn't. It will turn up for sure -- one of these days I'll be in my basement and move Jimmy Hoffa's body and there it will be.

While we're on the subject, you'll probably appreciate this ornament. I also have a whole series of mini juke boxes, but they're too small to use (I have a couple of full size 1/6 ones too). This Hallmark ornament works perfectly because it's just the right size to be on a Diner tabletop.

Sorry, you're right of course. Should I delete anything? Technically some of the instruments, mike stands etc shown in the last pic are Barbie items. The pianos were made for doll use, and part of the drums was (ugh) from a Justin Bieber doll set.

I'm from New Jersey, pretty much the mecca of 24 hour diners, and spent a lot of late nights flipping through these little table top jukeboxes. And the scale looks spot on.

No, no, it's fine. I would never ask anyone to delete something (or delete it myself) unless it is truly inappropriate -- I do make suggestions sometimes but even that seems to hurt people's feelings (different instance, not this). It's just we have to be fair overall. But also in fairness, you were following up on ReverendSpooky's question. Besides, this includes Barbie items as you pointed out (I thought I recognized one or two). If it wasn't for the context, this could have been moved into the appropriate thread, but it's fine as it is.

The figures are all versions of Captain Action, Doctor Evil. One is my actual childhood one from 1967. A couple of the others are from the 1998 Playing Mantis version and the rest are from the 2011 version. Obviously it's a Collage so I don't have that crazy many.

Call this a Teaser from my eventual music-themed Post. I've actually done a little booklet about the 50 year career that these guys have had in the music industry, as the Evil Band. They're a little like KISS, a little like the Dead, and little bit like Forrest Gump because they've been everywhere and met everybody.


Moonbase Alpha Male wrote:OK, here's a full on Teaser for this project -- Front Cover, Back Cover and some concert photos. Fully belonging in this thread because the set up is the Hannah Montana doll's Concert Stage (actually two of them combined). There's quite a lot of Barbie stuff in the overall project.

You will love it. It lights up, it plays music (which doesn't matter for photo purposes I guess) and it has movement in that the "pages" actually flip. In fact you can actually select different music by pressing the letter codes at the front. Awesomeness squared. I hope I didn't lead you to spend too much but I think you will find it worthwhile. Look forward to seeing it turn up in something.

Thanks for the comments on the Teaser for the Dr Evil Band. I'm most grateful you mentioned the Clash reference because the project contains dozens of music and pop culture references, some obvious and some very well hidden, so I hope people will find that amusing. There's a lot of narrative hidden or implied in the pics. You may tell from the back cover that I started this concept back in 2014 (at Christmas) so it's been a long time coming. The problem for me is that I still haven't done a couple of fairly complex photoshoots for it (like "the Evil play the Egyptian Pyramids '78" and "the Evil go to Sturgis") and unfortunately because the whole thing is laid out like a booklet, the incomplete gaps will be obvious. I have decided now however to just put it out there even with a few gaps -- partly because I figure here in OSF, "we're among friends," and people should be ok with that as a work in progress. May I say, I am nowhere comparing myself to your excellence but it was your Radio Kings repost that made me want to get this out there (along with the fact I showed off my pic with all the instruments, and the ball rolled from there).

$17 with shipping, which is a straight up steal. It was a drop everything and go buy it now kinda purchase when you showed it. Man, your collection of 1/6 pieces that weren't intended for 1/6 is awe inspiring. Be careful, I may start asking you weird "was something like this ever made in 1/6" kinda questions.

I'm so glad you did end up posting the work in progress shots! The whole project is so fun. The alien looking band is such a trip, and the fact that they have this really retro look already lends itself so well to the classic rock feel. And I'm not sure if the white flowing shirt was from the original Doctor Evil, but its somehow a perfect fit for both 60's rock guitarist or 60's super villian, which kinda cracks me up for a lot of reasons. I'm really looking forward to seeing it as a whole, when it is finished, because it's a really cool project.

What is the 1st photo in reference to (I bet Dadrab would have seen it immediately)? I feel like with the pose, and that specific photo effect, it's on the tip of my tongue.

Chapter One is up now, I'm dying for your comments. You are never going to believe what that white flowing shirt is. That's an actual Seinfeld "Puffy Shirt"! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qWFSBqAxR4 It originally came with the DVD set of that particular season of Seinfeld. It fits 1/6 OK, though it doesn't close at the back. Pic #1 isn't specifically anyone (unless unconsciously) but it's meant to be in the spirit of "Crawdaddy" magazine, which was Rolling Stone's poorer freakier cousin in the day.

Any questions you may have about out-of-left-field potential 1/6 items, I'll be glad to answer if I know. In case it should be something you don't want to reveal in advance to readers of Radio Kings or whatever, feel free to PM me, or I can give you my real world email.
