Introducing the AGENTS of SOUTH-CENTRAL UTAH HEADQUARTERS (SCU-HQ):

A quick first snapshot to get things rolling:

Agents of SCU-HQ Tbl1
Sally LaSalle and Nicolette Arkham

Both figures are on TBLeague (formerly Phicen) S26A bodies. Sally (left) uses a FireGirl FG071C headsculpt. Nicci (right) is a Kumik 13-20 sculpt.

More photos and character details forthcoming. I am awaiting a few more items to complete these figures.

Very cool Dave! they both look fantastic! One looks like she is escaping with top secret documents, while the other looks like she is about to start an all out assault!

Thanks! The new head (YMT029) ended up working very nicely on the newly arrived S35 body. The S35 is actually less petite than the S26A, so the military uniform fit better on the S35 than it did on the S26A. The new head and the new body have now become "Nicolette," while the former S26A/Kumik 13-20 "Nicolette" became "Dr. Fabian" because Barbie and Pullip doll clothing fits the S26A pretty well.

The S35 was supposed to include a head sculpt. That's the version I purchased, anyway. But the version they shipped was the body only, so it was fortunate that the YMT head fit with a good color match.

Great looking gals, Dave, I really like them both! They look very cool posed with your stone walls. note to self: make some stone wall panels...

also loving the bodies. I've noticed in some of my window shopping trips that some of the newer TBL gals look a little heftier. Not fat, but just a little bigger and a litte more muscular. I think I saw that they have different heights as well.

Where does one go to learn more about these different bodies? I don't really find detailed information at ebay or any of the etailers?

Thanks!

It took me a lot of online digging, but I finally found a comparison chart for TBLeague (Phicen) bodies:

https://www.moviefigures.co.uk/blogs/news/phicen-tbleague-action-figure-body-comparison-chart

Another chart adds a few more:

https://giantoy.com/blogs/guides/tbleague-phicen-standard-female-figures-comparison-with-photo-body-shape

The first chart is from 2019 so it only includes bodies up through S27B, but it offers a comparison of some of the more popular body types used by members here on the forum, including the S21 and S23 (frequently used by BlondeActionMan), and my new fave the S26-S27.

The second chart includes the S28 and S29 (pale and tan "plumper with medium bust") and S32-S33 (pale and tan versions of a slimmer, narrow-shouldered, medium bust body).

I found these charts to be very informative when I first began looking at these figures.

Newer releases include the S34 and S35 "teen" bodies (pale and tan).

Upcoming releases include a slim, stylized "anime" body - S36 and S37 - and a "plus sized with large bust" S38 and S39, and a "curvy European" body - S42 (pale) and S43 (tan).

Letter suffixes (A & B) usually... but not always... denote whether a head is included with the body. The S34 and S35, for example, are available with or without a head sculpt. The same is true for the upcoming S42 and S43.

Numbers in close succession, like S26 and S27 or S32 and S33, usually denote "pale" and "suntan" versions of the same body sculpt.

TBLeague (formerly Phicen) also offers complete figures and collaborates with other companies (Executive Replicas is one brand) in releasing complete figures. Sometimes the bodies are stock bodies, other times they are special designs for the specific figure. I have not yet found a source that identifies the bodies used in complete figure releases.Razz Razz

This might seem like a lot of info, but start with those two charts and you'll begin to get a handle on things. If in doubt: ask Dal! Razz

Now... matching after-market heads to seamless bodies is where you get in to the real can o' worms. Heads from different manufacturers tend to be slightly different in size and color. Just because an eBay listing claims a head will fit a Phicen/TBLeague body does not mean it will fit all the different bodies or that it will be of the proper scale or the proper color. But that's a subject warranting an entirely separate topic.

Dave. I’m totally loving this outside picture. Mainly because I am a huge fan of seeing outside figure pictures. I particularly like the second picture best but that’s just me.

Naturally! 
I wouldn't have expected anything less from a man of your class Dave!
(And might I add, it's such a refreshing change from all those other scantily clad silicon strumpets too.)

Although Tærra does look a perhaps a little wistful (?) to my eyes, she sure is packing the calibre in that bandelero she's wearing!


That wonderfully bleached trunk in the foreground couldn't be a junior bristle cone pine could it?

Now that you mention it, that does look very much like a bonsai version of a bristlecone pine!

However, it is actually a dry branch from the prevalent Great Basin Sagebrush, Artemisia tridentata.

(I'm not as smart as I pretend to be; I had to look up the Latin name. geek )
