I purchased a Headplay Michael Jordan head.
It is beautifully painted with a striking resemblance to Michael Jordan. Maybe I should only post close-up photos. No, I'll show you everything, even if it ain't pretty.
Here he is on the Blue Box body that I had ready for him.
This body is too skinny and too short for MJ. He will have to have a new body, which is unfortunate because this body closely matches his skin tone.
The head came with a light colored neck connector. Why oh why did they send a neck connector that does not match the head? I can only wonder. I tried to put the neck connector on the body, but could not, even after heating it with a hair dryer. I asked my husband to put it on, and he was close, but the neck connector split. I used a Hot Toys neck connector that is closer to MJ's skin tone, but is too dark.
My MJ is also currently having some issues with his hands. The hands that he's pictures with have pins that are too thick to fit into the arm sockets. I will have to make some permanent modifications in order to get them to fit (I'll save that for another day).
Here is a photo of MJ holding the neck connector that arrived with him.
I wanted to put MJ on a taller body with broader shoulders. I considered my Hot Toys and my Triad Omega bodies. Neither is a close skin tone match. Plus, I am very hesitant to make any modifications to my Triad Omega because he is not sturdy and I do not want him to fall apart in my hands.
Here is my MJ figure compared to a TTL body. The TTL body is slightly taller and broader that the Blue Box body.
Maybe I'll buy MJ another body one of these days. But for now, he'll have to wear bulky clothing to minimize his shortcomings.
