HI Andi

Thanks for the review and clarification on how the girl is all put together  ;). Not all girls like their secrets to be known on what makes them look so attractive  :lol:. I do like how the old seam in between the upper torso and legs was eliminated. I like how this body system looks and will be needing a lot of them.

Thanks, Andi !!!

Why is it that your "quick" reviews are usually a lot better than my long reviews? ...  :klickygrin:

ONE QUESTION ... ???
How are the legs attached to the "blue" frame?

All the best,
Richard

Thanks, Andi. I notice that there doesn't seem to be much moulding to indicate the toes, something which was done on earlier barefoot versions.

Thank you, Andi !!!

It seems that Bikini Girl uses a pin system somewhat similar to her sheriff cousin from the late 1970s.

However the "frame" system appears to be totally different.

It looks like a conversion would be rather simple. From what you've shown us in JOSO's picture, perhaps it would be just a matter of drilling out the factory pin and replacing it with a vinyl pin that just fits snug enough to hold everything together, but still permits repositioning of each leg.

Thanks again and all the best,
Richard

Very interesting to see the internal workings of both Bikini Girl and the '70s Sheriff.

I'm glad they didn't go with separately moveable legs, they don't really add much play value unless you also have moving ankles to reposition the feet, and then you have more parts to break off.

Actually, Martin, the 1970s sheriff did have "moving ankles" ...  ;D

Funny. I find it coherent of Playmobil not to have made legs to move independently in this new leg pattern. It goes with the others. (Except for soccer klickys, which have a very specific purpose ...)

All in all, I don't need (I myself ... I see that others may feel they need this) klickys with legs moving independently.

Well, this is a very personal matter, I think.
