Shilling aside, i started watching them,, it irritates me though that they call themselves toy reviewers but just put the figure on a lazy suzan and talk about it.
they barely mention importaint things about the figure like proper articulation and what it scales with,
and it should have been a big clue to everyone when they said for their Glyos figs that they were making "a toy that they would want to play with" fucking thing has 6 POA! even standard glyos figs have more... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I like them a lot! They make pretty good videos, but you have to get past the fact they don't focus 100% on reviewing and more on just talking about toys and how much they love them and their effect on people. They have an interesting view on things, considering the guy with the beard (his name is escaping me for some reason atm) works in licensing and used to work for many different toy companies. I like their videos
Man, this thing was disappointing.People hyped up Mezco's One:12 stuff like crazy, and I finally buckled down and got Batman. I expected at least a basic Figuarts level figure, but what I got felt more like a dressed up NECA figure at best, and a DCUC at worst. The production itself is very nice. Great box, great stand and armature set up. The costume itself is welldone, especially the cape.But the base figure itself is nothing to write home about.I've been spoiled by what I expect from import figures, because it feels stiff as hell. The ankle rockers feel incredibly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anyway, yeah there's definitely some great design differences between American figures and Japanese ones. I live in a country where marvel legends and black series figures cost as much on the shelf/online as it would be to get a figuarts/figma online (you'd need to have more money than sense to get those in person) so from my perspective they're both in the same price and quality range, but overall the American ones are always lacking.
Sadly i don't have that figure... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Bullshit though I'm glad you remembered soundwave.
>hasbro starscream has a blue nose cone no coronation set subbed with flight stand >thundercracker better homages the old toy with tampo's on shoulder vents and sonic boom on rear rudders >all mp's have safety tampo's >sunstorm became a shithead ronald mc donald >quality on fittings on newer hasbro versions are lower than takara versions which suggest mold degradation and lower qc checks
I say this as an owner of hasbro starscream (have to force the chest apart to transform into robot which I didn't have to do on older hasbro seekers), all hasbro seekers (I sadly like shithead ronald mc donald), hasbro prowl and hasbro bluestreak (prowl has a slightly off center autobot symbol but he was fine, took me opening 15 total bluestreaks until I found one that didn't look like a 2yr painted it AND could hold its car form without undue stress).
But in short hasbro versions better homage the toys (where possible) and show shows of lower qc, I will buy hasbro ones IF I missed out on the takara and based on price, but unlike the takara I will be cautious and buy them in person rather than be comfortable with opening a package from japan and expecting greatness.
My second hand smokescreen with a chipped bumper did amazing out of the box compared to the many bluestreaks I had, thank fuck the tru I visit are patient enough (though it seems waiting on me gets them out of work so it may be of mutual benefit)
Why don't toys have specific release dates? Movies, music, and video games all have exact dates where you could go to the store or go online and they'll have it in stock pretty much everywhere. but with toys it's more of a release month and even then your local stores probably won't have it until months later because fuck you that's why, but then if you go online you can find it sometimes before release. This seems to be a problem especially with Marvel Legends. Why can't toys have a specific release date where all toy stores get them in stock?
Because toys are a bigger pain in the ass to manufacture, pack, and ship than the latest tripe by "Adele" and are shipped to tens of thousands of retailers with no idea how they'll sell or how quickly, so why bother trying to meet some street date only the adult collector market, which toy companies loathe, cares about
That would be nice. However I doubt it'd work in the long run. Places order on a need more basis. If things worked like that and came in at a specific date, I'm sure we'd have either too many peg warmers or some people would just not order any stock due to too much stuff that the time.
Seriously. Online retailers that market to collectors have their shipments and releases more rigidly managed, but your local stores couldn't give a shit about that demographic. They manage their toy departments for kids.
Toy collectors, even in today's supposedly NerdsRKewlest culture, don't (and shouldn't) get any special attention like guaranteed retail release days. Not to mention, if there were such a thing, it would only make it easier for scalpers to schedule and you'd be in an even worse position.
