I have not seen Phicen/TBLeague figures mixing it up with any dolls other than the occasional male action figure on the sites I visit. The general consensus, even among people who collect those creepy large-scale "BJD" dolls with hyper-realistic eyes, appears to be that Phicen-type figures are "uncanny" and disturbing. I suspect it has, as you have noted, something to do with their relative realism. They simply don't mix well with more toy-like dolls and figures.
Not being familiar with many dolls I had to look up those "BJDs".
NOT at all sure I could face up to a room full of those things staring at me. They remind me a bit of those damn big-eyed paintings of Margaret Keane that were once so common back 50s and 60s.
Or those VERY creepy Victorian period "baby" dolls that I always found so scary. Kids must have had nightmares with those things being in the nursery at night!

Interesting to learn that Phicens don't appear on those doll-photography sites. Perhaps it does have to do with the fact that their relative realism destroys the illusion being created and only serves to emphasise just how stylised other figures really are.
Thanks for the info.

All courtesy of the fact I was lucky enough to have been given a full Classical Education as a kid and not a Modern Comprehensive dumbed down one such as is handed out now.
You know, the full bit.
Latin , (inc. Caesar's Commentaries etc), Ancient History, Physics, Chemistry, Algebra, Trig, Calculus, Grammar (yes, as a subject!), Shakespeare, Literature, Poetry, French....the whole damn works.
Stuff kids never even see nowadays, much less recognise.
Must admit it has served me well throughout life.

Where did you go to school? scratch When did you go to school, the 1830s? Gnome

I wish I had that kind of educational background!

I missed getting a close-up shot of drilling a tiny hole in the center of the peg that was broken off in the forearm. I drilled a hole in the stub of the peg that was broken off inside the arm and screwed in the brass hook. The plastic stub kept spinning as I tried to drill the hole. After breaking two brass hooks, I was able to pull the plastic stub out of the arm, drill the hole, screw in the eye hook, and re-insert the stub in to the arm.

Nice reference to the "architect of the Third Reich." This figure has now been named! (Even tho' the resemblance isn't particularly close.)

In a rare social appearance, Doctor Evil escorts Cousin Monday to an evening engagement.

I believe Cousin Monday has tickets to see Liberace at the Palladium.

Must have been before Dr Evil got his new prosthetic face? He's definitely looking a bit "Planet of the Apes" there!
Nice drag though, specially those up-turned purple Aladdin shoes!
His date looks in no danger of the newly released virus either, ...and that's a huge plus!

Cousin Monday is a Momoko doll; Momoko dolls have cute faces but are otherwise very toylike. Actually, the crudely jointed plastic Momoko bodies are utter crap. But the costumes are nice. Being more toylike, the Momokos are a better match in the world of GI Joe / Action Man than are some of the more realistic figures, if maintaining the "action figure aesthetic" is important.

(Okay, admittedly, that's setting the World Domination bar pretty low, but hey, ya gotta start somewhere!)

Here's the first one, from August 2019:

I should say so!
Our American cousins must have the wrong brain installed if THAT'S their worst!
All we Evil's know that our GREEN brains come up with THE most dastardly plots!

Here am I single-handedly destroying those damned Phicens to promote VAM and MAM,  and you're just shifting a few pics around?
CUMMON NOW! The very pride of The USA Chapter of Evilness is at stake here!

Besides, that chick looked like she was enjoying be chained up on the wall FAR too much!
I expect to be seeing FAR more evilness now that as they say "two heads are better than one".....or should that be six brains?
