Well, I thought I'd do this. A lot of you guys may not be aware of the 1/6 bodies out there to bash and may need some help so what I'm doing here is sharing a little bit of the bodies that I own and others that I think is good. This is not meant to be a database, it is for research for base bodies of males & female to make your favorites characters and/or whom/whatever you want. I will provide a small commentary for each body, please study the pics for your possible upcoming bashes & projects, it will help you greatly Very Happy

PLEASE NOTE: All bodies here will be headless with no clothing, if you are offended by this then please do not go any further! Also worth noting, I am not an expert at 1/6 scale bodies' names are anything else, I just really do it.

Here it goes!

MALES

IMPORTANT NOTE: As personal/selfish nitpick of Mine for a long time, there isn't any "true" varieties of males in 1/6 like fat men, giants, midgets and so fourth. If you are looking for these types of bodies, unfortunately they have not been created by companies yet and I don't know about others but I am still waiting for this to happen Exclamation 

BBI

It has a a lot of articulation and muscle.  Good quality. Kinda hard to find.

Dragon

It is really a good body but more basic than the BBI. Good quality. Kinda hard to find.

TTL

There is several kinds of these bodies and they are great but got to get use to the sholders, they are funky but the bodies are cheap!

Sideshow

There is many kinds of bodies from Sideshow. I love the articulation on the old ones but the modern is really good too. Sometimes they are hard to get but they are really worth it!

1/6 Base Bodies Guide: Males & Females (UPDATED 4/3/14)! Bc736be46fa3eda4592a0ccc476745464936be74_r

Triad Omega

The Omega's quality is good but not great. they are quite fun to work with and they are kinda tall. I actually recommend them because you can do a lot with them.

DAM

This is an awesome body but it is usually in one skin color. It is a large body, a little high priced but it is great!

ZCWorld

The X-Series bodies are really great, a bit floppy but they can give you just about everything you need!

Crazy Dummy

The shoulder broke on mine when I tried to move it as it was a glued defect, I really don't recommend it but do as you wish.

Enfuse

This body looks good but it really sucks. Tried two different bodies and both were defected, I wouldn't bother.

These bodies look great but I do not own them.....Yet. You might wanna give them a chance!

A little comparison from another source.

FEMALES

IMPORTANT NOTE: As I have va personal/elfish nitpick about the with the males (read above)I do have some about the females as well. Finally there is starting to be more African-Americans but IMO there needs to be Mexicans, Native Americans, Indians, and fantasy colored bodies like an Star Wars Twi-Lik for example. Also, As much as I dig the females bodies that is currently on the market, I do wish there was different types of bodies like supermodel thin & tall (but nothing like Barbie), muscular and fitness bodies, and even heavy females. I Now, with that being said, if you are unfamiliar with the bodies of 1/6 females, the following picture MAY appear to you as plentiful surprises or even make you shocked. When I first began collecting & bashes females bodies, I was in the same state but as time went on and the more experience I got the more I got used to. If you like or prefer women with different bust sizes from medium to large then these have been made. It is quite fun to bash females no matter what kind of female/women types you like. I hope you will understand aforementioned important note Very Happy 

Soldier Story

I never knew the correct name for it but it is a decent body. Kinda easy to find.

BBI Perfect Body/PB

It is a great looking body and is available from time to time. There is several skins colors and breastplates are sometimes optional. Beware that the heads are quite difficult to take off if desired.

1/6 Base Bodies Guide: Males & Females (UPDATED 4/3/14)! Ad12631659ee851a0d04c7428bde2124fa418165_r

Triad Otaku

It is a tremendous looking body but it's quality just sucks. If you don't heat up the joints often you cannot move them and if you force them then they will break. I only recommend that you get them if plan of have a nice looking female that you do not plan to redo or even move.

Triad Alpha

These bodies are absolutely some of the finest on the web and quite easy to get at this time. Unlike the Otaku, they are of great quality and there is many options for things to you to do. There is many bust sizes & skin colors to choose from. A really great looking body and I recommend them a lot!

Cy Girl, Takara & Knock Offs

Since Cy Girls bodies are super difficult to find these days, these bodies have great looks and quality, they are kinda easy to get. They are some of My favorites!

ZCGirl

These bodies are really good quality and has a couple different skin tones. They also have options for different torso pieces. They are tall and leggy, really nice:) they are getting harder to obtain though.

Hot Toys TrueType

Both of the early versions & newer versions are great but expensive. They have rubber torsos. They are moderate to obtain but they are great!

TTL

Both types are really good but the quality isn't the greatest. I do recommend them however, cuz they are easy to get and look really fine.

Kumik

It is a fine looking body and great quality and easy to get. It only comes in skin tone so far. It is a shorter body. One complaint however, is by many is the factory smell but it didn't bother Me as I like that new toy smell. I recommend this body.

Phycen & Hot Stuff and TBLeague

I do not own any of them. They are no seemed having an exoskeleton inside. I have read reports of how they break so as great as they look, I did not want to risk it or at least not right now.

Obitsu

It is a body that is about 11" so NOT TRUE 1/6 scale, about the size/height of a Barbie. It is really nice and has magnet feet. There is several different kinds and a bit hard to find. If you plan on a different scale this would be ideal but can only work with 1/6 if accept the differences.

Volks

It is a body that is about 11" so NOT TRUE 1/6 scale, about the size/height of a Barbie. It is really nice. It doesn't have a tone of articulation but is acceptable. There is several different kinds and a hard to find. If you plan on a different scale this woudl be ideal but can only work with 1/6 if accept the differences.

Play Toy

These bodies are not available yet, they look similar like Hot Toys & Kumik and can provide many fantasy bashes. It is not known what and when their availability will be. I can only hope the quality is fine cuz they look it!

UPDATED: I know own the XL Bust version and I am extremely happy how it looks visually, however, the quality of the neck is questionable, if you decide to purchase the Caucasian or the Asian versions of any bust, be carfull when you play around with it. Another thing is it just doesn't have a huge chest but the backside is also very large so choose you clothing wisley!

These NEW bodies will NOW have double-jointed elbows and double-jointed knees and another bust size has been added to fill in the bust gap of the previous releases. These bodies are coming out later on in the year!

Also later in the year, an additional large bust body will include a pretty Asian head to get you started with your new character!

SMCG/FLIRTY GIRL COLLECTABLES

Similar like the Kumik but in three different skin tones, these look like the ideal female body. I have recently ordered the Color B version so soon I will know how this good looking body is!

THE END -----> That is it, I hope this helps you out. There is literally a TON of questions to ask about these if you are a novice such as the different neck pieces, what types of hand & feet fit what bodies etc. If you do have Qs then please don't hesitate, ask them right here, write them up as much as you want, I will reply as best I can to help you Very Happy

OK, here is another thing you gotta be aware of when making bashes: making sure the necks, hands and feet are correct! Follow the steps closely, it is a very important process for your bash! I made this post in a quick manor, if you have more questions, just ask Me Smile 

NOTE: These are only examples, all the figures and parts will vary from company to company.

The Male body: LOOK at the different necks, hands, and feet.

In the pics, the long neck is first, the third is the second pic. Second neck can vary.

This neck adapter can be difficult, sometimes you gotta trim/cut the inside for a tight fit, be careful and very slow when you do it!

The newer hand and feet styles have pegs that are removable from the actual hands & feet. Make sure they look similar like below. The hand pegs' length can be tricky!

The Female body: LOOK at the different necks

Some bodies neck's such as Hot Toys has a ball neck, the head type below will fit that kind.

1/6 Base Bodies Guide: Males & Females (UPDATED 4/3/14)! 29f16e6fe458034e4c38d38ef469c415dc296c26_r1/6 Base Bodies Guide: Males & Females (UPDATED 4/3/14)! 86e26ae6dde475c00244514f4490bf173e4c61b6_r

Other bodies such as Cy Girl will have a pointy neck peg, the head below will fit nicely but the neck hole may have to be trimmed, again, take it slow!

The hands is similar like males and like the males even if they have gloved hands. The feet are however more difficult. In the first pic -----> some bodies like Hot Toys will need ball in socket feet (see the males above for a similar example) but others like Cy Gild & TTL will have a socket hole for feet with a ball ankle. See other pics below. Also as a side note, some female shoes like boots will have a ball joint already built in AKA bootfeet but some boots without the ball joint will require the heeled up feet!

I hope this will help you out with your possible future bashes Very Happy

Another great post, and very much appreciated, Brandon!   There's some very helpful and intresting info in there!  cheers  cheers  cheers 



I've got a few like those BBI muscle bodies in the first pics, One is a Confederate soldier. My fave is my Jackie Chan figure, the fingers can be bent and the figure poses extremely well!  Very Happy  I haven't taken any serious pictures of my modern 1/6 figures yet! Some of them have been in storage for at least 5 years!

I need to get them out soon and take some pics, I never seem to get any encouragement!..
