Thats what I figured. They were lower levels.Were they low levels? If so, it just simply means maybe their cp broke or the game stopped working and they haven't had a chance to level up and their membership ran out. That's my guess. I just recently made a Pirate and that shape wasn't available.
When I started playing on Spring break last year, that body type was still available. And so was the girl's body type that was not very well 'proportioned' (It was the body type before they got changed to the I guess you could say "non steroidized normal body type". My mom would always say: "Your pirate must have been taking steroids to get a body that shape!"
