My New Power Team Guy


Power Team Elite 1:6 scale action figure to used by... I mean, to be displayed with one of my 1:6 scale (fashion) dolls.  ☺

The title of this post was going to be, "Clothing Makes the Man"; however, the tan suit ensemble I ordered for him does not fit (see next image).   Well, actually, the shirt does not fit.  The openings in the shirt sleeves will not accommodate the width of his huge hands.  I did not bother trying the jacket or pants on him since the shirt does not fit.

After reading Ms. Leo's My New Power Team Guys post of February 2013, I began a diligent local and online search for at least one of the new guys.  She found hers new at Big Lots in her area.  To this day, they have never showed up at Big Lots here.  I found my guy nude on eBay thanks to Facebook friend Dee Mahogany Dee's heads up.  (Thanks again Dee!)  He was in a buy it now or best offer auction for $18 + shipping.  Initially, I offered $10, but after reading the description that he had a loose arm, I cancelled that offer and re-offered $8.  The seller accepted!  I was "all" happy that finally, I will have at least one of the new Power Team head sculpts.

After he arrived, I gave him a thorough inspection.  I could not find anything wrong with either arm.

Close-up of my new guy -- isn't he handsome?

My guy has a 5'oclock shadow which adds to his appeal.  In the images Ms. Leo shared, the guy she owns that most resembles mine appears to be clean shaven.





Temporarily PT (which is what I am calling him now) is mixing and matching pieces from the 1:6 scale male stash.  His gray turtleneck sweater was borrowed from Night Out TJ.  TJ now wears a black dress shirt with his houndstooth coat.

As he stood nude on my desk for a couple of weeks waiting to be dressed, most of the playscale ladies here eyed PT with intense desire.  Can you blame them?  Since Christie was nearby, she caught his attention first.  Later, he and another lovely lady showed signs of interest for one another.

PT and Christie pose for a full-length and next a close-up photo.



Did I ask if you think he's handsome?  
So-In-Style Fan Club-Exclusive Chandra might be the one to seal his heart.  (More about her later.)
Which one do you think PT admires the most?

  2. He is handsome, Debbie! And he looks great with the ladies. I do like his 5 o'clock shadow.

    1. That 5 o'clock shadow adds to his appeal, but I'd like him with or without it. Thanks, Roxanne!

  3. He reminds me of Blair Underwood...back in the day.....He is a cutie..do any of the other ladies get a shot at him? I'd like to see him with the quiet sister that kinda ignores him and he decides to chase her and all the other sis get kinda jealous....kinda like a Cinderella story.

    1. Yes, the other ladies will get a shot at him. It happens often here in these platonic relationships. He went from Chandra to Cynthia Bailey within a 24-hour period. Space is usually the determining factor, though. There was enough space for me to squeeze him in behind Bailey, so there he remains, for now. I am sure she does not mind.

  5. He and Chandra makes the better couple. Christie looks a bit mature for him (IMO). Not to mention, he is looking back at Chandra in that last pic, while Christie is all goo goo eyes over him. Lol! Love your SIS Exclusive! ; )

    1. GG - That haircut does give Christie a more mature look.

      He's receiving goo-goo eyes from one of my Janays right now, but he's actually paired up with Cynthia Bailey. Janay, who is positioned in front of Bailey is looking at the couple or at him wondering why he chose "her."

  6. He is quite handsome. If he is a true Power Team guy, his hands should come off quite easily with a little tug, so you can dress him in that suit. I always pop off the hands of my PT guys. Ten years later and the hands are still coming off and going on, as designed. In the picture with Christie, he looks like Chris Tucker. lol. Maybe Christie can be his mom or his auntie. I think he is really feeling Chandra.

    1. Thanks, Vanessa.

      I tried gently to remove one of his hands, but it would not budge. I tried again after reading your comment, still nothing. I think the newer (and he is marked Power Team) figures' hands are not removable. He seems to be bulkier than the earlier ones, too.

  8. I remember Ms. Leo's post and also scoured my BigLots trying to find a black Power Guy. My stores don't even carry 1:6 Power dudes any more.

    Congrats on getting him!

    1. Thanks, Muff. I can't tell you how many times I visited Big Lots after reading Ms. Leo's post. I even asked a guy who manages a Big Lots in another part of town to be on the look out for me. Nothing... It was very frustrating to know these figures were available in some areas but not here. I'd like to get at least one of the other newer ones, but will settle for this guy if I cannot.

  9. Congrats! I have this guy to...sooooooooo handsome! I named my guy Blaire because he reminds me of Blaire Underwood....again, handsome. ;-). My guy is bulky like him too and I think you're right, this body type does not have remove able hands. I'm team Chandra! I agree with the other ladies, Christie looks a bit like a cougar. Of course...there's nothing wrong with that. ;-)

    1. Thanks for the congrats, Tracy. I had to take a good look at PT to see if I could see Blair Underwood. I couldn't but I like that name better than PT, so I think I will rename him Blair.

      Thanks for confirming that your Blair's hands are not removable. It would be nice if they were. I see a lot of tanks, sweaters, or other shirts made of stretch fabric in his wardrobe.

    2. Here's a PT link I found:

      http://www.pinterest.com/pin/56365432807081583/

      He played Ironsides on TV before it was cancelled. He's had a lot of great roles and is probably on a show now but I can't keep up with all the new tv shows, lol.

    3. I can see the resemblance now, Tracy.

      That show was so unfortunately short-lived that I didn't know about it until after it was cancelled. Blair was on a talk show and he or the host (Wendy Williams, maybe) mentioned the cancellation.
