Kaustic Plastik Realistik Muscle Body KP01A PREVIEW

Kaustic Plastik emerged from the ashes of Twisting Toyz, formed by Fabio Varesi, former Twisting Toyz historical chief consultant and Danilo Leo, former Twisting Toyz chief prototyper. Twisting Toyz, as most collectors are well aware, was the first and only action figure company producing 1:6 scale World War II Italian soldiers and equipment, that today still remain the most historically accurate Italian action figures in the market.

Kaustic Plastik wanted to continue with that grand Italian tradition. However, Fabio and Danilo felt the need to create a new company that is focused on the more "ancient" themes of Italy, which for too many years has been overlooked in the collector’s market. Being that Kaustik Plastik is headquartered in Italy, they will have wide access to some of the world’s finest historical artifacts out there. Because of this, they will have the capability to produce historically accurate sets such as: Ancient Roman Gladiators - based on the original weapons and equipment found in Pompeii (Italy) (I've previewed both the Kaustic Plastik 1/6 Roman gladiator Retiarius "Astacius" and Kaustic Plastik 1/6 Thraex "Celadus" Roman gladiator already) and the Ancient Roman Army – from the military might of the Roman Legionaries to the impressive stature of the Roman Centurion, get ready for battle! Exciting times indeed!!

This will be Kaustic Plastik 1/6 scale Realistik Muscle Body KP01A. This newly developed 12-inch nude body will have extraordinarily life-like muscle definition with 4 posing hands, a Lifelike head with "state of art" paint, Carefully painted skin texture, Improved ankle joints for extra stability and be made of extremely durable plastic (PVC and ABS) for lifetime enjoyment. Finally, a company that listens to collectors - No more cracked muscle bodies which may be good to look at at first but bad in the long run because they tend to crack up (see my post HERE for a cracked up Hot Toys rubber body!)

You can order the Kaustic Plastik 1/6 scale Realistik Muscle Body KP01A on their website HERE. Their products are also distributed in USA by Cotswold Collectibles and they are very proud of this because Cotswold Collectibles is one of the oldest company totally dedicated to Action Figures!

His hips look a bit over the top. It's nice to see a few more options coming to the market re base bodies though.

I'm with you on that :) more bodies, more options. hopefully will help bring the price down for everybody and not let HT monopolize the market.
