Preview ZC World ZCWO X-Series Body (Pale, Tan & Black 1/6 scale Regular Body types)

Hot Toys soon-to-be-released 1/6 scale TrueType Figures - Advanced Muscular, Regular and Slim Bodies (previewed HERE) are just too expensive when compared with all the other available 12-inch action figure bodies in the 1/6 scale market. Not everyone out there can afford the higher price of the True Type body nor would they want to when similar bodies are available at more than half the price Hot Toys is asking.

ZC World has just announced that they will also be reelasing their new X-Series of Male Bodies. There will be three skin tones to choose from - pale, tan, and black. You could say these are the new 12-inch X men figures haha


Each set will include a body (regular proportions - not muscular nor slim), two neck connectors (fits Hot Toys and DID style head sculpts), four pair of hands (gripping, weapon gripping, relaxed, and fisted), and two pair of feet (one piece, two piece with hinge). As these will be priced at approximately US$26.99 a set, you're getting a great figure with a ton of bonus accessories.




X-Series Body (Pale Color) - ETA Feb / March 2013 - Features: 12-inch Figure Body, 2 Neck Posts, 1 Head Connector / Adaptor, 1 Pair of Relaxed Palm Hands, 1 Pair of Gun Holding Hands, 1 Pair of Gripping Hands, 1 Pair of Fist Style Hands and 2 Pairs of Feet


X-Series Body (Tan Color) - ETA Feb / March 2013 - Features: 12-inch Figure Body, 2 Neck Posts, 1 Head Connector / Adaptor, 1 Pair of Relaxed Palm Hands, 1 Pair of Gun Holding Hands, 1 Pair of Gripping Hands, 1 Pair of Fist Style Hands and 2 Pairs of Feet



X-Series Body (Black Color) - ETA Feb / March 2013 - Features: 12-inch Figure Body, 2 Neck Posts, 1 Head Connector / Adaptor, 1 Pair of Relaxed Palm Hands, 1 Pair of Gun Holding Hands, 1 Pair of Gripping Hands, 1 Pair of Fist Style Hands and 2 Pairs of Feet



ZC World had in fact announced the release of their FIRST 12-inch figure only in November 2012 - the ZCWO Articulate Body (AB-01) which will come with a head sculpt. You can see the preview images HERE. Everybody is jumping on the bandwagon and producing their own 12-inch figures. That's GREAT for all 1/6 scale collectors everywhere as now there are even more options available.

Do you know if foot and hand pegs and neck adapters will be compatible with HT?

@lex Gen X 1:6 Hardcore said...

According to the manufacturer, YES. Most of these companies would do that as they know collectors are all looking for cheaper options to HT's exorbitant prices for their TrueType bodies

These look great! They appear to be "narrow" shoulders. Anyone agree?

yup narrow seems to be the way to go. more natural for most figures :) not everybody is built like Dwayne "The ROCK" Johnson

Are they floppy? I've read that in other forum.

I'm afraid they are not as sturdy as Hot Toys bodies.
