Emerald Elegance, a Windy City Collectors Club doll, used a Pop Life doll as the base.
Made To Move was designed to be playline and while it does offer more poseability, the joints are bigger, clunkier, and far more obvious. It looks like a playline doll versus a collector doll and lacks, imo, the grace of a pivotal body. The joints can be hidden, but it is still a physically bigger body than the pivotal and often times, when collector head molds (particularly from older dolls) are put on this body, to me, the proportionality looks off.
This is the MTM basket ball player. Though you can't see the knees on this doll, they are made roughly the same as the elbows. Greater poseability, but not quite as graceful or "collector" like, at least in the traditional sense.
