Review

The best bits:

  • Like all meshes from TMP, the mesh is exceptionally well done – the smoothness of their mesh really is amazing, and it makes the clarity of appliers you use on it so much more crisp.
  • Whilst the wardrobe/Style HUD system is a bit tedious to get used to, it really is kinda cool to change makeups and skins etc. visually within the Style Mode HUD. Saves searching your whole inventory for it, which I’ve been known to do.
  • I love that the lashes are modifiable within the HUD, so if they’re not fitting correctly because of your head size, that’s easily fixed. Lashes are so important to a head!
  • I love the lash options, this is probably the best set of lashes I’ve seen on a head yet, and the ability to change that up and make them bigger, smaller or take them off altogether is amazing.
  • I do love that the TMP products come with so many skin options, that’s always a bonus for me.

The worst bits:

  • For the price tag, I wish the head came with the basic make-up (a few lipsticks, eyeliners, eyeshadows or at least some different eyebrow colours). It seems a shame that after paying $5k you need to sink at least another $1k into products for the head (whether they’re from TMP TheShops or from another skin maker).
  • The system is hard to get the hang of at first (the shopping and style mode systems), however I have a video tutorial for that HERE.
  • I would love some expressions with this head, but I’m hopeful in future updates this will happen anyway, because it’s the natural progression of mesh heads really.

10 thoughts on “TMP – Mesh Heads

  1. After a long hiatus from SL I came back and was trying to find the whole mesh body/head. I settled on SLink Hourglass shape and wanted to get TMP head, the fierce version. Instead I had to go through a rigamarole with buying lindens putting them into the TMP HUD then going back and accidentally picked the wrong damn version not realizing that after the purchase I was going to be having to do all the damn details. So here I was $12 usd poorer and no mesh head to go with my purchase b/c I still can’t seem to find a skin I care for at Glam Affair that matches the classic head. The HUD is a head ache and of course customer service wont do anything about it, even tho in the past I spent money on the body, hands, feet and the last was a head that I ended up disliking. Very disappointed.

  2. You didn’t “accidentally” pick the wrong version, Amanda, the whole set-up is DESIGNED to make you make mistakes. You did exactly what TMP wanted you to do.

  3. TMP is one big scam. They charge to much and their bodies and head they are only “ok” at best. They never send out updates and they have terrible customer service. The HUD is tedious and frustrating and what you get with the head and body is a big fat nothing! You will have to continue to sink money into a body that really no one creates for because they want creators to send them full perm textures to place in their hud! Do yourself a favor and buy another brand, any of the other brands out there are more worth your L’s and you will be happy.

  4. The review here says that 36 skin tones are included with the TMP-head.

    THIS IS NOT TRUE. What you get are 36 places where the skins “go” after you buy them (at an outrageous price).

    Please correct the text! (It should say “Skin tones included – none”

  5. I like the TMP head, but there are no expressions. I see that other creators are looking to Bento for their head updates. If there were more timely updates, I would be very happy.

  6. After purchasing several other heads from the popular creators, I realized that for make up and over all smoothness, TMP was one of the best. The others have weird shadows and a pasty look. If I were to take photos, the TMP is the best. If they had updates for bento and expression they would be perfect. The hud is great once you get used to it. The learning curve is horrible, but manageable.

  7. Hi guys, some questions: When will you do “mesh head for BENTO” I have deluxe body and deluxe head fierce, and would be great if you upgrade them. TMP is the best, no doubts, but you must going ahead with this project, we customers expended a considerable money and we do not want to stay behind of the others, right.
    Thank you.

    • I don’t think they’ll ever update their bodies or heads. I have the male deluxe body and two male deluxe heads. Spending so much on something that has been in beta since its release. Anyone still using or buying anything from The Shops is simply wasting their time. I’ve moved on to Catwa.

  8. I would greatly appreciate if the Blog owner would use their notoriety to get in contact with the creators of TMP. I have been told by multipleCSR that a release would be made “Soon” And this has been the case since the Male release on December 25th of Two years ago in my case.

    I understand that it takes time to make a product; But it does not take two years, Nor does it make any sense to keep your brand loyal consumers in the dark. Furthermore, They used a paywall to exempt themselves from TOS limitations; And the more I investigate these “Coincidental circumstances”, I become more worried that there will never be an update. The fact that the have actively updated their “Shops” hud continually over the actual “Style mode” hud. Nor have they addressed issues that creators have brought forward leads me to believe that The shops is practicing in unethical Business.

    If you sell a Beta, then provide no update; Charging astronomical prices in comparison to anything else at the time then make people wait years, without feedback, without updates to a working Jira, without response to bug reports; You can safely assume that someone has committed fraud, or they are being highly restrictive with their information.

    We, the consumer invested into a “System of Mesh” which was a “Program” in it’s “Beta” state, and the sale of an item in that state would normally come with obligation of reciprocation on the designers part to hold to their agreement and fulfill the completion of the product. Instead, they used a paywall, we effectively traded our lindens for a worthless commodity, which then was exchanged without specific value for the body. This is a laundering method , and while I saw no problem with it at the time, because I believed you could exchange your currency out of the system, you can not; Thus, from the very beginning the plan was to entice, promise and collect the money they could; Then they had a sale, to bolster their numbers, and it was at this point I realized they were hurting and had nothing else to offer.

    So, I do wish to be proven wrong, I truly do. Yet as it stands; I know of no reason why not a single comment has been made with any respective time frame. I have not seen a date that was announced even end up being correct, nor did I witness a reason for that announcement being false. I’ve been lied to, countless times by their customer service, having been given a time frame of “Weeks” in December. It is now the 19th of March, and they have not made one effort to fulfill their part in this partnership with their customers and designers.

    So please; If you can, find out; If not, I will personally move forward with legal action, compiling the names of those through public records on facebook of dissatisfied customers and push for class action for every single instance of fraud I can find a legal reference for.

    We as consumers, participants in their “Program” and investors in their “Product” which was sold as “Unfinished to be updated for life” demand and deserve an update on the current status. Please, your blog operates amazingly and is a vast resource of wealth and knowledge for SL Mesh enthusiasts, If you can’t get their attention please make it known to your readers.

    • Hi poster – Hmm I don’t I have ‘notoriety’ at all, certainly not enough to ‘sway’ anyone’s decision making process in relation to their business. I have in fact done exactly what you spoke of, about a month ago, and I received the same answer of ‘soon’. I’m afraid the response I recieve isn’t any different to anyone else’s.

      Like most of SL, I don’t even know who the owners of TMP are – let alone how to contact them. Sorry I can’t be of more help. 🙁
