6" Shirtless Normal-Bodied Male?

Mon Sep 13, 2021 2:44 am

I'm trying to recreate this unreleased look:

It's Wild at Heart Oz from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Anyone have any suggestions for a 6" non-ripped shirtless male torso?

I was thinking maybe TBS Farmboy Luke since the tunic comes off, but not sure how that might scale. Anyone have both Luke and Oz and could see how they look together? I have an extra Oz head, hence the custom idea.

I know a ton of wrestlers are shirtless but they are typically bigger and jacked so asking the group! :)

Farmboy Luke was my first thought, but Oz is pretty short, about the the same height as Willow really. Another option would be the deluxe Hawaiian shirt Spike and take the shirt off. Not sure if he is bare underneath or wearing the white tee shirt, but that could be painted I suppose.

If you can track down a DCUC Kamandi that would be perfect.

Other than that, maybe there’s a Japanese import anime body that would work?

May still be to muscled up for what your wanting but there is a shorter aew figure called jungle boy that is a pretty small body male. Also perhaps one of the borderlands 3 psycho torsos could work with some slight sanding but I think the figure was pretty tall. I dont recall because it's been a bit since I saw a borderlands figure.

There's a line of blank bodies called Body-Kun (or something similar to that). They come in several body types and skin colors. Only drawback is that even the slimmest male body has muscle definition so that may be a problem if you're going for a look of someone who's not at all athletic.

I thought I had an image with the top off but the ML Namor might work if you sand the muscles down and then made soft good pants.

Body Kun figures are way too small to fit into a Buffy display, even the old one.

The bigger problem is unless you are 100% certain it's legit, there are a LOT of shoddy knock offs floating around online, even from US sellers.
