Silk Spectre II's body ebay's pics ....new rubber mold or just modify/cut from Hot angel... they cut off the rubber at the waist portion... They should have modify the pelvic region to give it more leg articulation. Other then the rubber torso, typical Hot Angel body.

Mini-review of HT's Wolvie...
Edit: The claws are chromed metal.

The sole reason for the included instruction on lifting the head before twisting the head, this is so that the inner chin/neck portion does not rub against the painted hairs on the silicone/rubber neck.

The rubbery material is certainly not thin (only thin at the edges), harder than that used for female TT or Dutch/Chris. The body underneath has the articulation points of regular TT but certainly not a regular TT shell. The rubbery body shell is attached to internal plastic body by 2 points that I can identify, the sternum and the back-bone portion of the upper torso. Neck has 2 articulation points, ball at the base of the neck and double ball on the based of the head... Plug the head off away, I see no problems...

Single point articulation of the elbow, limits it to only a 90 degrees bend.

Materials used for the fig: PVC arms, PVC covered abdomen, Rubber/Silicone upper torso. Internals and articulation points are still mostly ABS plastic, using cheap solid PVC, hence the added weight compared to regular TT which is mostly ABS plastic shell. As a ref. the hands/gloved hands/some boots of HT figures has always been PVC....


The only way to detach the rubbery shell is disconnect/tear the glued portion off the internal plastic and detach the arms from the body and slid the rubbery shell off. So, sorry no dissected pics to show yet, I guess description will suffice for now. Some posing pics to follow.

Edit: my mistake, the claws are metal, top layer's non-conductive, non magnetic alloy too...

The claws are durable plastic "chromed" (a.k.a vacuum metallised with aluminium and then coated to prevent scratches).
I could've sworn the claws are made of metal~ :?
(it's cold to the touch.. and it weighs a little heavier IMO~)

He's Dr. Henry McCoy ma :lol:

BTW, bro BeastX, how did you know the claws are made from chromed plastics and not diecast or any other metal? Just wondering how to differentiate coz they feel kinda same.
