I decided to order an Obitsu body for young Harry. I had been hearing about these bodies for years, but never had an occasion to purchase one since they do not make brown bodies. I purchased a 21cm body in flesh tone (my only choices were white and flesh).
The body came with 3 extra sets of hands, and 4 different neck connectors of various sizes. With 28 points of articulation, this figure is extremely pose-able and is by far my most articulated child figure.
I needed to change the neck connector in order to get Harry's head onto the body. This was not a problem. The neck connectors are attached with a small screw.
I removed the screw, detached a larger neck connector, and attached that neck connector to the body with the screw.
With the larger neck connector in place, I was able to easily attach Harry's head to the body.
Here he is with head attached and fully dressed. He is wearing his original shirt and pants. The pants are a little too short for him now.
I was trying to get him to change clothes, but all he wanted to do was hang out with his new friends.
Here is a height comparison. Pictured below from left to right are: SIS Julian, Mego Our Gang Buckwheat, Mattel Todd, Harry, and Dave Cub Scout.
I think that I should have purchased a taller body for Harry. He has a very boyish face, but his head is kind of on the large side, so I think that he could pass as a teen. I thought about giving this body to my White Todd doll and purchasing a taller one for Harry, but the Obitsu body is too pale for Todd. I will keep Harry on this body for now, but he may grow a few centimeters in the future.
As happy as my girls were about the new arrival, I think that my boys were even happier. I have so few boys that some of my short men stand in for boys every now and then.
*Shaking my head* Boys! They will not be satisfied until someone breaks a limb.
My overall impression of the Obitsu body is that it is a good purchase for the money. The body is flexible and sturdy, and it is easy to swap out the neck connectors and hands. I wish that this company (or another company like this) would make brown bodies. I am so impressed with this body that I wanted to purchase more for some of my other White dolls (male and female), but this "flesh" color is too pale for all of them. So this will be my only Obitsu for a while.
