As the title states the current market has dryed up and they are pretty much all sold out most places. I think a new batch needs to be on the horzion soon and I have some ideas on whats needed.

1: The basic narrow shoulder needs to be reworked for a more lifelike look, its very good but needs a more natural chest with nipples:monkey3
(open to head ideas)

2: The arnold body needs to be released and should include a useable head(arnold with hair parted in the side) or something new.

3: The slim should be re-released with new head(open to ideas)

All the new truetype should come with short and tall ankle adapters to accomodate various heights for customs, basic underware, and should be availible in caucasion and aa too. Theres alot more options we could use but a wave like this seems realistic. What do you guys think?

I don't think they should bother with any more Narrow Shoulder type bodies anymore. Headplay locked that down...unless HT releases a great headsculpt with it to try and get the market back. If they could release an Arnold body under $70, that may work well for them.

There are good options out there but I do like the quality of hot toy TT's the matte paint, tight joints, good plastic, and high quality head sculpts.

The narrow shoulder body is one of the most important as its the every man type body and is a staple for the average custom. It just needs an updated sculpt of the human body. The arnie body is my most wanted out of the list, KP bodys are great but not as nice as hot toys IMO.

The HT TTM-19 is the only one that is hard to beat.

They should really rerelease all their modern bodies without the included headsculpt and with a lower price point. It would be nice to be able to easily acquire them through Sideshow and such. Maybe I just do not understand the market, but with how popular customs are you would think Hot Toys would make their bodies readily available and easy to buy straight from them or their providers. Do they not want money or do they want everyone to scalp their figures or something?

I think generally (or always?) you can expect a new body they release a figure that has everything for two figures except for a body. DX01, T-1000, MJ Thriller, these are examples of that. What brings them to release the female figures or the last muscle body, I don't know.

Also, if you were paying $50 for TrueTypes you were overpaying. $30 is what you should have been paying.

HT needs to rethink their prices to compete with all the companies selling more than decent knockoffs of their bodies at half the price. Kaustic has been able to easily and successfully capitalize off of a huge gap they left by not releasing the bigger muscle TTs.

I agree. Great questions, Monger. I too wonder why they don't make more and sell them at a better price point. While the knock-offs are adequate, the TT bodies are still better made (tighter joints, better finish).

We definatly need some new ones. The previous releases are hard to find now, and almost impossible to find at a reasonable price. Even the recent Muscle Body has become scarce.

Id agree with the person that said they should start releasing them without the added headsculpt. It only adds to the price and very few have had any benefit.

My proposal for a new lineup:

Male:
-Narrow Shoulder
-Slim
-Advanced
-Advanced African American
-Muscular
-Bodybuilder (Arnold Body)

Female:
-Caucasion
-Cuban
-Slim (A body similar to Alice or Babydoll)

Yeah if anyone has any information on obtained the muscle body (TTM-19) for a decent price please let me know. I need it for a custom and the prices it goes for online are just stupid. I don't care about the headsculpt either so if you know where to get it without the head that's even better.

In seriousness I would like if they'd start doing truetypes that look good from top to bottom. I don't like that they currently only bother to detail them from the waist up. I'm not talking about adding a ***k or a *****a but proper musculature and texture.

Also female bodies could do with some strengthening. They always feel so flimsy and the knees bend forward too, its annoying.

This. The TTM19 looked great from the waist up, but would it have killed them to pay some attention to the legs? With the current obsession with gladiators, I would think that would be a wise move on their part. I had anticipated that the follow up would have realistic legs, but let's see.

We all know you want an Arnold body with wang, don't deny it!

Seriously though, I agree. A more detailed body, especially in the legs, would be a welcome change. The TTM19 was nice, they need to continue that with the regular and slim bodies. Also, I ran out of truetypes and all my suppliers have dried up too.

Buttmunch
10-20-2012, 11:47 AM
As long as they include a desired head with a TTM figure, regular truetypes will continue to sell. Doing more things like the Gambit head is the right thing do, not more prison break rereissues or random Gyllenhal sculpts.

Not going to make a John Blake? Then release a JGL head on a TT and people will snatch that up. Its not rocket science. HT is smart enough to play this game. They've done it before, they can do it again. But we'll probably just end up with a Mitt Romney head this time around :lol

HT definitely needs to do a new system. Not only are their bodies harder to find and overpriced in the secondary, other companies are catching up. I'm sure they are losing quite a bit of money. If HT were to do a new matrix of bodies they should offer some new innovations as well, and perhaps an additional size or two.


Male
Short/Teen
Regular
Muscle
Heavy

Female (seamless or low seam)
Short/Teen
Shapely/Athletic
Voluptuous

As for head sculpts, I don't know how the likeness licensing works on those. Depending on what they could get away with perhaps folks like Ryan Reynolds, Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Ben Affleck, Denzel Washington, Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, Halle Berry which would be pretty bashable.

I hope not, there important to utlizing the extra heads that come with some releases as well as customizing or bashing. I think its just a matter of them having to much on there plate with the amount of releases this year.

What they need to do is mass offer the Coulson body IMO it's the missing link between the slim and narrow shoulder it's radically changed a few figures with awkward in between builds or serviced certian figures with undersized heads or clothes. It's radically changed many of my customs and the way I customize. It's getting a bit pricey though buying them at 70 or 60 bucks a pop

The other welcome additions are the ads wong female bodies and the mechanic tony stark body's. The female situation is dismal and I don't love but I like this body and the tony stark build is a much better option for average but built guys who are not built like Hugh Jackman

I need 2 new True Types for my original Hot Toys Two-Face. I was just dusting off my collection and both Two-Face and Harvey Dent figures left behind their right legs when I went to lift them. :lol No falls, no posing, just picked the suckers up and saw a foreleg and shoe left behind. Damn knee rings disintegrated like crusty, stale crackers. Thankfully I only paid $75 bucks new for each of those suckers back in the day. Not sure which body I should hunt for now (ran out of spare legs). It'd be nice if they sold just a regular old true type body and made it readily available.

I don't see why Hot Toys just doesn't supply different Standard true types regularly. No head, no gimmicks, 30 bucks.

I would love for Hot Toys to give the female TrueType another go. I think they made a major miscalculation with the first pair by giving them identical head sculpts. Why buy both?

However, head sculpts for any new female TTs would still be a necessity. Unlike the males, there is little to no competition for Hot toys in making life-like "generic" sculpts. Manufacturers are getting close now, at least, but I think Hot Toys has enough of a head start to corner the market if they choose. The problem is that in order for that to happen, in which other manufacturers will design clothing specifically for their body, Hot Toys needs to be more committed to keeping their line alive.

I really like the new body used for Selina Kyle and Avengers' Black Widow and think it would make a great TrueType. It's versatile, the sculpt has nice detail and decent paintwork to bring out that detail. It just needs feet! Original hand sculpts (fists, "karate", thumbs-up, etc) might help sales, too.

For TTM knockoff, this one is nice:

For the TT ones, I just get it from whoever is cheapest that day. :dunno

Last one was:

I like that first one, great that it comes with extra ankle joints to add height if needed, hot toys should pick up on that feature. Only issue is no sculpts with necks will fit it, none the less I may have to give it a try, thanks for the links:hi5:

Cut the necks off the sculpt. I got that one for Recondo.

Bumping this, I think the time is should be drawing near on the next batch, just about all the ones from the last batch are gone from most retailers and its time for a new injection of Body's. Come on hot toys bring them on already!!!

Unless they have some great new advancement, I don't see many people needing a standard TT. Its all about the Muzzle at this point really. Make a seamless neck TT available and people would be interested again. Otherwise I don't see many wanting to part ways with their $20 knock offs.

Still no news on new truetypes:impatient: Say what you will about people being fine with knock-offs but I will always prefer a quality hot toys body and would love to see some more on the way. Most stores are completely out of stock of the last batch and have been for a long time now, I know they have a lot on there plate but True types are easy to produce and always sell. Hopefully we will get some soon:pray:

So what new types of True types would they do? Personally, I want another African-American body. Don't feel like paying the high prices for the old one.

I would like to see a few,

The barney ross or bane style body
The basic narrow shoulder with better sculpted detail
The bruce lee or tonto style body
The Leonidas body

I would also like to see tall and short ankle pegs included as well as the return of the included head sculpts

You really think they'd release a rubber body?(Leonidas)

On a side note. How are the Knock off bodies?

I think that they will release an unaltered version of the Tony Stark body next ( with out the arc reactor ) .

Looks like Hot Toys are out of the truetype business these days, no release for 2014....this sucks:pfft:

I agree. It sucks that they have not released any new bodies. It's harder to bash together a figure when there is nothing new and the older ones sky rocketed in price.

It would be nice if they did. I made the mistake of getting a TT regular and none of the bashes I want to do require a regular, only a slim.
