TrueType AA (Obama) and TrueType AA (Terrence Howard) Comparison

An anonymous commenter to my blog post of August 20, 2010, regarding the TrueType African American (Obama) figure, wanted to know:
Can I add the True Type Terrance Howard head to the True Type Obama body? Do the colors match well enough? I have been trying to buy True Type Terrance Howard but can not find it. I can only find the head.
I replied, "yes," to the first question and promised to take comparison photographs to illustrate the complexion and height differences  between these two figures. 

(TrueType Obama removed his shirt without a fuss for the complexion comparison, but he adamantly refused to remove his tie.)

As shown in the above image, the "Obama" figure's tan-brown complexion has gray undertones while the "Terrence Howard" figure's complexion has a reddish-brown hue.  With a head swap, I think the difference will be unnoticeable or barely so. 


As shown better in this back-to-back image, at 12- and 11-1/2 inches, respectively, the "Obama" figure is taller than the Terrence Howard Figure. 

Note: I did not remove the heads to test whether or not they will actually fit the other body, but I assume since they are both TrueType, they will.

    1. Hi Miss Lola,

      The Terrence Howard look-a-like’s official name is Hot Toys TrueType - African American (New Generation Slim Body Version). You'll probably be able to find it in search engines as Truetype African American Slim Body.

      For those interested, the Obama look-a-like’s official name is: 1/6 Scale Truetype Body - African American Advanced TTM-15

    1. Thanks, Georgia Girl!

      I regret not purchasing Integrity Toys original Darius. I am confident that he'll eventually surface at a price I am willing to pay.
