The worst thing I have done for a toy was stealing. When I was a kid my family and I went to the beach. There was this little girl there who had these Muppet toys and I really liked her Kermit the frog toy. I made friends with her and we played with her toys but while she wasn't looking I buried it. I help her look for it but she had to go home. I then went to the spot and claimed my treasure.
Hey guys, I thought I'd ask some /toy/ experts about this. I'd been wondering who makes the most realistic and flexible action figures on the market. I could use one to help me figure out poses for drawing, and it'll be good to have a 3d model instead of working from photos. And I don't exactly have the funds to hire a live model every day.
I'm really looking for flexibility and affordability. I don't need it to be a blank mannequin, necessarily. Any character would do. But good muscle definition would be a plus.
I have considered the Armature 9 figures, which look pretty fantastic and have a lot of different parts. It's got a poseable thumb which is rad as hell. The only real problem is that it's 190 bucks and doesn't really have any muscle detail anywhere. It's a fantastic skeleton though.
Anyone on here have experience with the mcfarlane akira figures? I don't know anything really about mcfarlane other then they have pretty shitty figures. I want akira figures but the only other options are the RAH ones which are stupid as fuck expensive.
They're products of their time, so the sculpts will look less crisp compared to modern figures or statues, but for the $20-30 price range, you're getting a decent looking representation of the character. Kaneda's bike is probably the one that has aged the best out of all of them, but the statues themselves are pretty decent even by today's standards. I'd say go for it if you don't mind a static figure.
>>5404595 ive only been cubing for 2 weeks and I picked up a yj yulong. i just order a zhanci, weilong, aolong, and FangShi ShuangRen a few minutes ago though so I have a few options to choose from to decide what best suits me, what have you been using?
>>5341899 There's one guy in the blog comments bitching. He seems to think Matt sell most of his stock ahead of time to the Glyos Illuminati, which means nothing's there for him when he wanders in a hour after the drop starts.

What is your best all-around action figure? What would you recommend? My criteria are as follows: >durable - not going to break by accident >value - affordable or you get a lot for your money >great articulation >great sculpt >can stand and pose easily >bonus: i own a cat so ideally it won't have a lot of loose parts or small accessories, in case the cat knocks it down

>>5414051 Classics Prime. Although I don't know if it's affordable right now.
Shodo Vs is pretty sweet right now. They're VERY posable and by virtue of their size/lightness, aren't too dainty, unless you a) have ham hands or b) you have a kid who likes to throw toys at walls. They get a lot of points for being cheap, especially if you split a case with someone.
OR, a Figuarts or Figma off Mandy. Provided you don't care about the source material and just want a good toy, you can get something... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>5414051 Maybe an SAS? When they're on point, they're some of the best things you can buy for 4000JPY or less. The young Joseph Joestar SAS is pretty much universally beloved by any who have bought it.
First time painter here and I'm trying to decide on a matte finish spray to go with. I know you guys tend to recommend Tamiya for everything, but I've found the Testor's version of the same thing for half the price and a week shipping time as opposed to 3 months. Would it work or should I go with a higher end option?
>>5404382 I don't see the problem, aside the giant clusterfuck It's not like they're blocking the viewing screen and TVs really don't give off anything harmful except for heat, and most flatscreens today don't produce enough to cause damage.
I'm working on a game inspired by 90's toys and am looking for as much reference as possible, i've got a ton of stuff that I had as a kid, but I imagine there was a ton of other cool stuff that I missed out on.
I'm really focusing on anything with bright vibrant colours, as many mutants, monsters and robots as possible, but anything is welcome.
This guy was one of my favorite toys from the 90s. When T2 came out and I saw an ad in the paper that Rite Aid or somesuch was carrying toys from the movie, I went as soon as I could, hoping that they'd made an endoskeleton figure.
>>5400508 Generally I'd say early 90's were focussed more on "Gross-out" sculpts and bright, pastel colors, while the mid-to-late 90's started bringing on more "extreme" detailing and darker coloring (think McFarlane) , chrome, and translucent plastic. Action feature versions of characters are another big thing; the Batman toys were a major example. You had Batman variants meant to street luge, to snow board, to lava dive; everything. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kinda started the trend but Kenner went... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
