I wanted to discuss about the 1/6 scale Medicom RAH (Real Action Heroes) body, and i get to have my Medicom RAH Indiana Jones figure as a reference.
The most notable thing about the Medicom RAH figures is their scale size. They are classified as 1/6 scale (12 inch height) figures but comparing them with other brands like the Hot Toys TrueType (TT) body, they turn out to be on the smaller scale.
The shoulder is narrower, the body frame itself is smaller. For me the body size is ok if the headsculpt to be use is that of a kid or younger age figure. But then again this body size offers diversity on your collection. In fact Hot Toys did a similar size body – the Hot Toys Slim TT body.
With regards to articulation, two thumbs up! Medicom RAH body offers great articulation it can even click the mouse for you! 😉 You can pose this guy any way you like but of course with clothing and gears, articulation will be limited somehow and that’s true to all 1/6 scale body figure.
You can easily break apart this body, screws are located all over the body including the legs and arms. It doesn’t use ball joint on the wrist and ankle, but at the ankle they engineered its design to keep the feet flat even with the legs at wide stance. The joints by the way are all tight.
Medicom RAH body can wear the tight clothing of other brands and make it appear loose.

Yep you can use the clothing of other brand on a Medicom RAH but sorry not the other way around. as the photo show above the Hot Toys TT can’t even wear the Medicom RAH pants and the shirt are too tight on it. But the gears and accessories like the hat can still be use.
The headsculpts made by Medicom RAH has a style of it’s own, it reminded me of those Designer Toys how they have a distinctive look on their figures and sculpts.
I think one main reason why Medicom RAH figures are pretty expensive, check the bottom, its the license, making them the official release figure for a particular movie/game/video etc. Medicom RAH has a category of its own, so comparing them to other 1/6 scale brands just won’t do justice and it’s time we stop whining about the downsides of any figure brands for each are a league of their own, less Indi here will whip your behind! 🙂
