Comment from Author:
Hey guys, this is Amelia, the admin of Giantoy. I wrote this article because I've always been asked this same question over and over again by our customers. There're so many versions on the market and I totally understand why we could get confused and don't know which type to choose.
There're some guides wrote by others on the internet which are great, and in my version, I want to have a systematic method that's simple and certain for anyone to follow.
Thank you for reading this article, and for those who point out my mistakes, I really appreciate it! Before writing out a "perfect" article, I want to be at least not too "misguiding" at first. Thank you for the tolerance of my limited knowledge. I'll keep updating according to your comments.
Hopefully, this article could be helpful for you in any aspect. If you have questions, please feel free to comment or email us by firstname.lastname@example.org.
2 Main factors to consider.
Skin tone and body types are the 2 main factors you need to consider to narrow down your choices.
Phicen offer 2 skin tones, which is “pale” and “suntan”. If you are choosing a body for a specific head sculpt of a character, make sure the skin tone fits the head sculpt.
Difference between “pale” and “suntan”
In the comparison photo taken in natural lighting, you can see the difference of “pale" and “suntan”. “Pale" looks a little pinky, while “Suntan" looks closer to normal human skin tone. Note that “Suntan” is not that exaggerate dark, the color contrast and brightness are a little bit lower then “pale”, but does not look “tan” or “black” at all.
For most characters in the movie featured by real-human actresses, like Scarlet Witch, Rey, Black Widow, Pepper…Suntan would be a safe choice. Even when the skin tone of the head sculpt is a little bit light, “suntan” would not look incoordinate. Thus it’s more recommended for characters portrayed by real human.
Skin tone match with head sculpt from KIMI toys & Superduck
In the following photo, you can see the skin tone matching for a few popular head sculpt designed by KIMI toys & Superduck.
As you can see, “pale” and “suntan” both look fine on most of them. So which one to choose is really up to you. Both of them would look good.
By body types, we are usually talking about “breast size”. Same as skin tone, they offer 2 types, which are “Middle” and “Large”.
Difference between “Middle” and “Large”
In the comparison photo, you can see the exact size of “middle” and “large” breasts.
How to choose the right body type
Okay, now you know very specifically the difference between “mid” breast and “large”. How do you choose then?
The highest priority here should be the clothes you are planning to wear on her. Make sure that they’re not too tight to wear on the body you’re choosing, especially upper clothes without elasticity. If you choose a body with bigger breast sizes or hiplines, some part of the clothes accessories might be very difficult to wear on or zip up.
Then, consider the body type of the character. You want the figure to look like the person as much as possible, so the body would also be a very important factor to keep assistance. For example, for Rey, if you choose “Large breast”, she would look a bit "off" after final assembling. The clothes you plan to wear on her would also be too tight.
How do I know the whether the clothes would fit on the body I choose?
The simplest way would be to ask the seller. But there are certainly ways you can tell this by yourself.
You can measure the body size in the description photos of the costumes/clothes you prepare, and then make your own choice referring to the body they use.
Jumpsuits made with leather or other material has little or no elasticity are usually too tight on Phicen large-bust bodies. Sometimes they might also be too tight for mid-bust bodies, and you have to use bodies from our brands like Kumik and POP Toys. Make sure you confirm with your seller.
Evening dress and some other female clothes has no strict limit of bust size or hiplines, you can choose whatever you like under these circumstances.
Other details of the body
Besides the most major specification on the body, the breast size, there are some other details that might interest you.
What are female secret parts?
These refer to the biological female part, the vagina. Since this issue is too sensitive, I won’t put a photo here. If you still need to see it, please send a message to email@example.com
The color of the nipples
The color of the nipples are mostly the same to the skin tone, not dark.
What are the newest athletic bodies like?
S22A & S22B are the newest athletic bodies released in 2017. What do they look like in reality?
In the photo, you can see that there are a medium amount of muscle on the abs. From the side, the ribs are also revealing underneath the skin.
Follow a chart to make your decision
Now you should already have an idea on the decision of skin tone and body types, then let’s follow this chart and narrow down your choice to a specific type of Phicen body.
- Series from S10D to S23B all has detachable feet.
- Series before S12D does not have any extra hands and feet. S12D only has 2 extra feet. After 12D, every figure has 4 extra hands and 2 extra feet.
- Only S07C, S09C, S22A, S23B has detailed secret parts.

A detailed comparison between #pale# bodies
Besides skin tones, mid/large bust, there're other differences that you might wonder. We'll take a look at S16A, S18A, S20A, S22A.
Although S16A, S18A, S22A are all advertised as mid bust, they still look different from one another. According to the actual size: S20A > S22A > S18A > S16A
S18A has a very smooth curve on the transition of neck and shoulder area, the collarbone are also not that revealing. In all, I think S18A looks very soft and tender.
Waist Width and abs
Muscles on the Abs
S22A > S16A >= S20A > S18A
Muscles on the thighs
S22A > S20A > S18A > S22A
