Are you male, or female? And what body size? How does it look with all of the bounty hunter armor? Thanks a bunch.

Male, Body 3 Chiss, looks fine, bulky but with power armor (in level 40 PvP) he looks like he could punch a hole through your chest. I'm not a fan of the helms, but I've got the bald look I'm rocking, so my choice is shiny blue head or goofy looking helmet. I go with bald head.

Male smallest body, asian face with military hair.

Think Ghost in the Shell... cyborg of course.

Female, body size 2. She's dark-haired and light-eyed. She's scarred, was greatly injured as a young teen, barely survived.

Mind you, I played a male, body size 2, through the Beta. Having played both genders, I think I can say, fairly, that the BH armor looks MUCH better on a female than a male. Accentuates her curves without making her look like a friggin' tank clunking around the area. Only thing I despise about the armor is the headgear, up until mid to late 30s. Whatever those penile-looking helmets are supposed to look like, fact remains I "hide head slot gear" every step of the way until I finally get a real face-covering helmet in my 30s.

Not being a female I've never been able to play a female character. It always felt weird. Did you like the type 2 body for male? My juggernaut is a body-2 and I hate it. I really wish I had given him 3 and made him more dominating looking.

Hehe, I have similar issues when I play males, honestly. Being that I'm not one, I mean. I liked the male Bounty Hunter I played in Beta, only because the voice acting, I thought, was superb. He SOUNDED like a bad'a** bounty hunter. Just fit, imo.

So when I say I like the male body size 2 more than any other, just understand I'm a woman, who refuses to play a character I can't stand looking at for weeks at a time in countless scenes and from various angles. To me, the body types work like this:
(1) Male body type 1 looks like a teenage boy, with everything just out of whack. What's with his head? Looks too big for the rest of his body. If I had a teenage son, that's what he'd look like and he'd whine to me about when all his extremities would start to mesh up with the rest of him. Lucky me, I have three daughters, all of whom whine to me about "ucky boys".
(2) Male body type 2 looks ... nicely toned, with all the muscles in just the right place, like he works out and eats well and takes care of himself without going overboard, looks healthy ... forgive me, please ... that's how I want a male model to look.
(3) Male body type 3 looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger, back when he was still young enough to truly star in some movies about great big machines intent on killing every human being in existence. I've paid enough attention to the regime body builders put into their workouts, to really be turned off by the overall end result. Just...ugh.
(4) Male body type 4 looks fat. I have nothing personal against fat, really. Some of my favorite people are fat, and I love them totally. But again. This is fantasy and escape. I want a hero I plan on looking at and enjoying seeing for weeks at a time through endless adventures. Fat doesn't work, in my little myopic fantasy.

Them's my thoughts. Please bear in mind, they're only personal opinion and everyone is free to have different thoughts at any time.

Body Type 3 Male Chiss.

I wanted to like Body Type 2, but IMO in this game that build looks too small and awkward, especially with body armor and a helmet. The butt proportions on the smaller models make them look like they got implants down there too.

And because I got the NFL on my mind:

Body Type 1 = Middle school football player, or Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad

Body Type 2 = NFL kicker

Body Type 3 = NFL Running Back

Body Type 4 = NFL Lineman

Cyborg, Male, Body Type 2

I've tried to make body type 3 characters but I think they look way too cartoonish and unrealistic. I don't have a problem with them per se but it didn't look great running around with undersized weapons and legs.

Black hair, combed in a slick to the left, with stubble and a cybernetic right eye.

I honestly forgot that David Hayter did the male BH voice when I gave him a cybernetic eye, when I spoke for the first time I was like 'OH MY GOD I JUST MADE SOLID SNAKE'

Personally nothing will ever beat my Imperial Agent. Human, body type 2, red hair, sideburns, hair combed to the left but not in a slick, with the big-nose face and green eyes. I look like a proper Imperial Agent xD
