You should never play with your food.

Tehre seems to be too many brains to fit in the skull - that's a bit of a concern that his head "exploded".

Her outfit is great.

Oh, so *this* is how they are made! I loved the shot of your Smart Dolls assembling the (suddenly so tiny-looking - whereas it's actually them who are huge) Phicen figure.

That skull Ellie is posing with is fabulous! I'll love any and every skull model, but a transparent one? Gimme three, please! It reminds me of the skull-shaped liqueur bottles I'm often seeing in alcohol shop windows in Prague (I'm not sure anymore if it's still legit to say "often" though, as I obviously haven't been to Prague in a considerable amount of time due to the virus sad ), and I've been contemplating buying one for... huh, 10-15 years? But I can never bring myself to it, especially because I have no intention of drinking the stuff it contains, so I'd be purchasing a decoration item for the price of some fancy booze.

Oh! I missed the Smart Dolls doing Mad Science on the Phicen on the previous page.

I laughed a lot about it.

I'm beginning to feel irresponsible for hanging on to so many clothing pieces that... don't quite fit anymore. Because they will fit again someday... right?  slash

My issue is the other way - belts (for pants) or safety pins (for skirts) are now an essential part of my staying decently clothed at work. The tops aren’t as bad, but when I start a new knitted top, I have to measure to make sure I have the right sizes now.

Interesting... or perhaps unnerving... that this is how you interpreted that particular photo.  Oh My

That's what too much studying will do to ya!

Yeah, I've been tempted by those Crystal Skull Vodka containers, myself. But I don't drink the stuff, either. Instead, I recently found these miniature crystal skulls on eBay:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/5pcs-Natural-cl...3876518262

They come from China, so perhaps you can find them on... Hungarian eBay? Euro eBay? They're pretty cool. But yeah, they're tiny. I have a "crystal skull" that is about the size of this plastic "brains" skull, but it is acrylic, not crystal.

You are very fortunate. I have really let myself go. A pound every week or two doesn't seem like much, but after a year... or two...  slash

21 February – Aren't We Done With Army Girls Yet?

Perhaps "Army April" or "Military May" should be upcoming themes!   LOL

Oh! I know! Military March! Perfect!

I call this one Nicolette Arkham. She's one of my favorites among the Phicen/TBLeague seamless figures in my collection.

Body: TBLeague S35A
Head: YMToys YMT029
Uniform: CAT Toys (via eBay)
Boots: stolen from a Star Wars figure

The whole Army Girl theme makes me think of Fox Force 5, the fictional TV show that Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) starred in Pulp Fiction prior to meeting and marrying gangster Marcellus Wallace. I always thought it sounded like a great show and hoped someone would make it.

Nice action pose. These figures are cool. Stop enabling. Tongue

She's a really nice looking one, I can see why she would be one of your favourites.

Blue (purple) - haired girl is pretty.
Cool guitar. Is it... pink?? or is that the lighting? Don't show my crew!
Great posing with that one. I gather their hands are a little easier to make realistic grips with than Pullips' are.
Yeah, a Phicen girl band would be fun.

A sleeve of tattoos would perfect the image.

Yes, it is a pink 1/6 scale guitar. Search for 1/6 scale guitar on eBay, you'll find them in all manner of styles and colors, and often at quite reasonable prices.

Most TBLeague/Phicen figures come with three sets of interchangeable hands: open hands, gripping hands, and "trigger finger" hands. I used an open hand and a gripping hand in the guitar picture. The hands are a somewhat soft plastic that allows them to be flexed enough to grip a variety of objects.

A tatt sleeve would definitely work for the "punk" style of this character. But... she's a rebel! And tatts are mainstream! Half of Millennials have one or more tatts! A rocker without tatts... now that's a rebel!
LOL




PHICEN FEBRUARY continues... to destroy the Dolly Market Forum!

Since PHICEN FEBRUARY began, there has been a steady decline in daily activity on the forum. Coincidence? Or correlation?
Innocent

Fortunately, February is nearly over, and I can see light at the end of the tunnel... or at the bottom of the TBLeague storage tub! Hang in there, gang! It's almost over!
