A conversation with Ovy got me to try out a pair of sixth-scale Adidas-like track pants from an eBay seller in China (from the TYM031 sports clothing set). You may have seen them among the "goofing" photos in the Silver Linings photo story thread. I used the same body to answer a question about head and body skin tone matching by ReverendSpooky, and stumbled across a minor discovery. While I had tested the pants on a hard-plastic open-jointed body and determined they will not stain, as I suspected the stretchy fabric caused plenty of fiber transfer. But before automatically going to wash it off (or reaching for the lint brush), it occurred to me that the tiny fibers were a way to achieve a relatively subtle body hair effect. So I massaged the offending garment onto the silicone surface in sensible places for a quick test, and I think the result confirmed my theory. I didn't even think to remove the protective powder before I applied the effect, which might have enhanced it. We have looked at other ways of adding an extra touch of realism through either attaching body hair, or spreading it on with a paint brush, or painting it with the finest pens that would cure on the surface, but in most instances the result is not subtle enough. This seems to overcome that problem, although it might be a tad too subtle. At any rate, here are some photos.

The result is semi-permanent in this sense: you cannot easily remove the effect by handling or even wiping the surface. But you can use a lint brush to lift the fibers or you can wash the surface with soap and water. Either way, remember to re-apply protective powder.

Aquaman Experiment - Mon Jul 27, 2020 1:11 pm

I was just goofing around a bit with the graphics software, using a couple of the photos I took for the clothing thread (HERE) that I couldn't use because they were taken against a green screen and I was blanking out on the editing.

Shazzdan drew our attention to a very affordable little football/soccer table game on eBay in the Useful Items thread. I follow up on it with an actual mini review, as mine arrived a couple of days ago.

First off, the item is indeed about the right size for 1/6-scale figures (I used a couple of quick TBLeague M33-based kitbashes), so you can put it to good use in casual or everyday dioramas. No, you don't have to get it -- I was just being silly...

The product is about 17 cm (6.75 inches) long, 9.75 cm (3.75 inches) wide, and 2.75 cm (1 inch) tall (including its little legs). To have characters play it in the traditional manner, you would want to elevate it to an appropriate height. The easiest solution is to place it on another 1/6 table (or other type of suitable furniture/container), like the wooden military table I used, which was about 12 cm (4.75 inches) tall.

Everything seems scaled about right, including the handles, which fit relatively easily into most "holding grip" hands. The little metal ball is drawn to either the center or to the goal posts, and by some magical design (I looked for but couldn't find evidence of magnets) once the ball gets into the goal, it gets gently stuck there. To unstuck it, press down gently onto the field surface, and the ball becomes loose again.

The product is light but reasonably sturdy, and except for the little ball, you're not likely to misplace or loose anything. All in all, it is a simple, unpretentious, and very affordable piece, which works very well in 1/6 scale.

If you want one, it is probably easiest to find one on eBay. I got mine from eBay seller happyvalley009 for $3.02 (USD) without any issues.

To answer a question on the old forum as to whether TBLeague M33 bodies would work well with 1/6 suits, I did some experimenting (I didn't recall actually stuffing an M33 into a whole suit before) and here are the results. Because the user asking the question intends to use this for a Tom Chandler character, I used the appropriate Eric Dane head sculpt which I had picked up together with a few other pieces of the DAM Toys set. The suit I used is the POP Toys X22-B (Men's striped suit BLUE).

As I expected, the suit is a very tight fit, although with patience and perseverance one could achieve a very decent result (I might have, had I not run out of both); the naval uniform was easier to put on, in part because it was somewhat stretchy. The tight fit on the suit gets in the way of articulation a bit, and I would have used a jointed body (like DAM's) myself, since no joints really show in either look, apart from that between the head and neck. Speaking of which, the TBLeague male suntan body is a tad darker in skin tone than the DAM Eric Dane head sculpt, although the difference is not insurmountably big. Some of the footwear with suit sets does not work with TBLeague ankle pegs/ball joints (had I first tried some Toys City shoes, unsuccessfully), but the one that came with the POP Toys set did work very well.

Hope this is of some use.
