President Obama Bulks Up OR New TrueType Bodies

Hot Toys will be releasing their new 1/6th scale TrueType Body – TTM-15 African American Male (Advanced Version) soon. The 1/6th scale new generation TrueType Male body set specially features: Newly sculpted head, Newly developed body, Two (2) neck styles, Muscular arms and thighs with detachable thigh muscles, Two (2) sets of bendable and interchangeable palms - One (1) pair for holding gun - One (1) pair of relaxed palms, Over 38 points of articulation, Suitable for 1/6th scale fabric costume and accessories, includes Figure display stand.

What takes the cake has to be the head sculpt. He looks a lot like the current President of the United States (POTUS), Barack Hussein Obama and very buff too LOL. It does look a lot better than the previously released DiD version. The problem is that this isn't a very versatile headsculpt... unless you looking to kitbash up a Navy SEAL Obama, FCS Obama, WWII Obama or Gladiator Obama.

TTM-16 is the Hot Toys TrueType Caucasian Male (Advanced Version). Looks like another Prison Break Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) HS but this HS can be used for many bashes because of the hardened no-nonsense look about him.

There's also the 1/6th scale new generation TrueType TTM-14 Caucasian Male (Narrow Shoulder, Long Hair) body set with head sculpt that resembles Christian Slater as Will Scarlett from "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)" OR Taylor Kitsch, best remembered as Remy LeBeau / Gambit from "X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)" OR Christian Kane as Eliot Spencer from the TV series "Leverage". You decide

Target shipment timeline: Q3, 2010

Hi, I'm just wondering if the police uniform from the DX Joker would fit the TrueType Body TTM-15 African American Male (Adavanced Type). I have the DX Joker and want to kitbash an "Obama-Cop". I can't get my hands on the narrow shoulders version but can get the African American, I prefer the African American Version.

Hi, Hot Toys redesigned their TrueType bodies primarily because the older bodies with the broad shoulders made the clothes look ill fitting and the figure didn't look as realistic as collectors would have liked.

Hence, when Hot Toys released their DX-01 Joker figure, they used the Narrow Shoulders for the Joker and the overall fit and feel plus look was much much better. Likewise, I would recommend the Narrow Shoulders for the Cop as well - check out my post http://toyhaven.blogspot.com/2009/11/hot-toys-mms-dx01-joker-review-ii.html

HoT Toys Obama (Advanced Type) has broader shoulders and arms. I'm not too sure if it'll fit into the police uniform nicely - http://toyhaven.blogspot.com/2010/07/16-president-obama-on-july-4.html

If you really want an Obama-Cop figure, I would suggest that you use a Narrow Shoulder body and plonk the Obama head & neck on the body since the entire body is completely covered by the police uniform and only the head and neck shows.
