« on: November 28, 2017, 06:45:54 AM »
Can anyone enlihghten me please, are RD2 and BT heads and skulls differant in size
I have a feeling the BT heads are not compatable with RD2's
Im sure someone  here knows the answers amongst all you multi doll owners .... :laugh:


Solved, from the RD site they appear different , the face, in this a case a Michelle, is only shown fitted on RD2's .
Which is all I wanted to know  :)

Apparently you can put the mag RD2 face on a toy boy skull ,some of the magnets do not line up properly so I read.
Looks like the Borneo head shrinkers have had a hand in the transformation Incred,one blown up and one shrunk ....lol

Anyway, the reason I asked is that on one of my rare forays into the for sale forum at TDF I bought this ..... ;D
So out of touch with RD developments I was not sure if this  was an RD2 or a boy Toy as I wanted the skull


And of course the bonus of the Michelle face...the spec.

Michelle Magnetic Face, Med. Skin Tone - $750
Configuration 4 Make-up
Upgraded eyes, Smoke - $100
Freckles - $150
Magnetic skull for Face - $250

Thank you Zebo and TDF ,it does have its uses  :D

Bought mainly for the skull as my RD has the early throat and mouth which was not the best of designs  as in the this photo
 



How could I possibly resist, always like the Michelle face

I know your inquiry is solved Ray but I have half a beer left before I go to bed  and I'm bored.

Thanks for the input Smoke and mind you do not spill that beer....and how can you be "bored"with your Harem around you

Had not realised there was such a size difference until I started my research
And dare I say it they certainly do not seem to work being swapped!  :laugh:

Funny you say that. I had a discussion with Z Doc a few months ago about the size differences. It is kind of an optical illusion. The BT head is actually bigger around than a F11. The big difference is the necks. The heights differences are about an inch.

 





Too bad I can't get the BT to stand a bit straighter;



Relax Ray and have a beer with Smoke;

Thanks for going to all the trouble to show comparisons Incred, in all the dolls there's so many choices and variations now.

It was a lot simpler when I bought my first doll...there was only Abyss to choose from ... :laugh:
Now there's many many more now China has entered the fray, silicone and TPE.

And if your girls were serving the beer I'm sure Smoke and I would overjoyed ...cheers.... :cheers:

Funny you say that. I had a discussion with Z Doc a few months ago about the size differences.

I think Smokes pictures really reinforce the scaling differences between the RD sculpts and the BT sculpts:
Here is a Full Head RD2 Crystal head beside a Full Head BoyToy Star.


Here is the BoyToy Star head on a RD2 Body D.


Here is the RD2 Crystal head on a BodyToy Body 3.


The RD sculpt is close to 1:1 (life size) while the BT sculpt is proportionally scaled down to probably more like a 85%-90% of life size (.85:1).  TPE sculpts also use this downscaling in all their "full size" bodies.  The TPE manufacturers just lengthen the skeletal elements to achieve the taller dolls, but the features are still scaled down, which definitely has its advantages in material and weight savings.

You can really see the proportionality differences in the above pics.  Functionally, the dolls are fine.  This becomes an issue is when you have the different scaled dolls together.  Luckily, you can use composition (perspective) to correct this photographically.  I guess swapping parts is an issue, too.

As far as swapping parts goes, current production Abyss products all use the same mounting set up and hardware.So swapping heads is really not difficult.
