Heroik Muscle Body

So this is the one that drew me back in - the Heroik Muscle Body action figure from Kaustic Plastik.

Earlier this year, I had been watching and waiting for the release of this figure.  This figure was released during a period of time when I had stopped ordering new dolls.  I still had it in the back of my mind that I would order this one at some point. A couple of weeks ago, I decided that I was going to order.  I went to the place where I normally buy my action figures, and they had sold out.  So I went to eBay and I saw that some people were already starting to sell this figure at far higher prices than the retail price.  I began to have that panicky feeling in the pit of my stomach and I hoped that I hadn't waited too late.  

I found someone on eBay who was selling the figure at higher than retail, but lower than the other eBay sellers.  So I placed my bifd  Meanwhile, I was reading Male Doll World and found out that I could get this figure at another retailer for less.  So I was hoping that I would not win my eBay auction, and I did not.  Once I was outbid, I immediately went and ordered this figure.


He is taller and more muscular than most other action figures.  He's pictured above with some of my other taller figures.  He's about the same height as the bs0039 body (Michael Jordan) and Triad Omega.  Darius Reid and Scottie Pippen are a bit taller than he is.


He is not as massive as my Elijah Burke figure, but he can certainly hold his own in a wrestling match.


I giggled as I imagined what he would look like in Ken clothes.  I giggled even more once I saw him in Ken's clothes.  As you can see, Ken's clothes do not fit.  The pants will not pull all of the way up, the shirt will not pull over the arms, and the shoes are too small.


Even Ken's stretchy T-shirt will not fit.  Neither will regular action figure jeans.  He can fit regular action figure shoes, though.


For now, he'll have to hang out in his underwear.  I don't mind.  And neither do these ladies.


 This action figure resembles Terry Crews.

  1. Wow! I can see clearly how and why you were drawn back in. He would turn my dolly land upside down. Lol! In my town, I have a lot of single girls. I love that last pic.

    1. Hi Georgia Girl, I have to keep the male to female ratio about even here. Otherwise, the residents get a little unruly!

  2. These figures are just not available in Australia so it's always good to read your comments and see your pictures (I like the last one too). He looks like the 'incredible hulk' in Ken's clothes -it will be interesting to see what clothes he does end up with.

    1. Hi Carrickters, he didn't have much to choose from for clothing choices, but he is dressed now. Interesting indeed.

  3. Congrats on adding this muscular guy to your doll family. I have seen him on Cotswold catalogues.

    It's good to know he's as tall as Triad Omega.

    That photo of him in Ken's clothes is too funny. I hope you're able to find him something to wear that is a proper fit.

  5. Thanks for the comparison shots - I LOVE comparison shots ;-D

    Nice new guy. He's a male "brick house," lol. Uh oh, got some guys rolling their eyes here. Folded arms too. Sigh.

    Lots of ladies smiling though. Shrug. Can't please them all, can we. Though it is great to see your ladies' smiles.

    And I second Vanessa's comment about Terry Crews. (A lighter complected TC, but still him.)

  8. Ever since I spotted these heavy-on-the-testosterone figs I’ve been hoping someone would do a comparison, so thanks. Looks like your girls are all over him and he’s fitting in well in your neck of the woods.
