Old old obitsu 60cm questions

Recommended Posts

Kittywolf

Not sure if this belongs here or customization but here we go. I have an old old obitsu 60cm doll, the one with the hinges, with a male torso. He has one of those thick neck pegs with the screw, and then it slots through the neck hole… it has a disk to hold the head on but it is always popping off. 
 

I don’t mind the body but since his head is always popping off I was wondering if anyone has ever successfully hybrided this older head onto a different body? Most vinyl dolls these days have a thinner peg? Not the slot. So I’m not sure what he would fit or if he even could. 
 

I think he’s really cute and would love to give him a new lease on life but unsure how to go about it since his current neck post isn’t compatible with anything new. Any ideas?

I own one of these. I don't find the disc to be particularly helpful either. Some people put the head on a DD body, and push a bottle cork to push down over the DD peg to keep the head in place: http://apokriphablog.blogspot.com/2012/12/obitsu-head-mdd-body-tutorial.html 

If you're going to try this method I would probably use one of the synthetic corks like the one used in the above post, rather than a natural cork, as the latter leaves bits everywhere and the hole doesn't stay tight on the neck peg. Maybe another option would be putting him on a new Obitsu boy body?

Thanks so much for the info. I’ll check out the link provided. I’m ok with moving him to a newer obitsu body as I had originally wanted like the boy 55 or 50. But I didn’t think this neck peg would work on those.

Hmm...I'm not sure how dissimilar the old pegs are to the new ones. I can't imagine the design has changed drastically? It might be a case of removing the peg and swapping it for one of the newer pegs, which can be bought from Parabox or 1999.co.jp when they have them in stock. Also I would love to see pics of your guy if you feel like posting him!

he’s a sweet boy and I don’t really mind his current body as it’s pretty good condition for it’s age but the head popping off is annoying. lol

Thanks! He’s very sweet. I’ve always wanted to give him a big bushy tail. <3
