Phicen Limited--are these for artists to model?

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

Phicen Limited--are these for artists to model?

BBTS made me aware of Phicen Limited. The "Black Fox in Fire" doll is quite... hot...

So I looked up the manufacturer. Are Phicen products primarily intended for artists to use as modeling references? Phicen's website says it specializes in people and animals, but I could find no animals (or men). I'm tempted to buy one as a modeling reference (Square Enix has been my chosen model figs, but after Lara Croft's leg snapped off, I'm reconsidering buying another Square Enix).

On the other hand, the Phicen toys are so super-sexy, my wife will make fun of me to hell if I buy one.

I'm also asking this because as far as toy manufacturer sites go, Phicen is funny... it shows up as "grey" on MacAfee's "safe browser" color scheme, and several hits on Phicen come up "red" (pointing to review sites).

If Phicen is a nudge-nudge, wink-wink porn toy manufacturer, I may just let them go. Anyone know whether they are really fragile? Lara Croft's breaking has made me reconsider reposing my Wonder Woman and Catwoman Square Enix figs.

ok, from what i can find, the general consensus is, they pose well, but not great. the rubber skin not only restricts the articulation, but can bunch at times in the hips, and elbows/knees when posing, which is not such a huge issue when clothed, but when nude... the asses and tits are "squishy" due to the rubber skin, and the skin frequently can be found w/ small holes/tears from the injection process, but again, these are generally not an issue on a clothed doll. the base heads the girls come w/ are apparently too "barbie" for the serious guys, so they roundly recommend investing in new heads. and the body without the skin looks crazy cool for posability, so it's kind of a shame that the skin costs so much range of motion.

Wow, thanks, Dayraven! Where did you find this information?

I've made up my mind, anyway, not to invest in Phicen models. The epidermis, with its care problems, plus the dolls' real hair already sounds like a high-maintenance toy. The squishy breasts may also be more realism than I need... my wife makes fun of me enough for my Square Enix Wonder Woman, I don't need DD Asian woman dolls with spankable bottoms and pinchable boobs.
