|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.
