for those things that you can't help but wonder why the fuck they're so expensive.
this isn't for shit like Chogokins that STARTED Expensive and are obviously ALWAYS going to be expensive. this is for stuff that might have been at tops $50-ish at retail, but are suddenly way the fuck too expensive for their own good.
>>5785958 It actually IS that bad, at least in my book. I had more than enough money to afford this, but couldn't justify it due to the fact that it looks like absolute shit.
- Clothes fit very poorly, it looks more like a college kid's shitty Jacket cosplay assembled at Goodwill - Poor selection of fabric, leading to hyper-oversized grain on jeans. Companies like ThreeA learned to circumvent this look with better materials. - Shitty weapons. The sword was bending even in the promo images, the shotgun... Comment too long.

I know that a lot of 1/6 scale toys often get bought and parted out on ebay, but is the same common of ThreeA's stuff?
I want the Imago Loop (pistol) that's going to be coming out with two of their three Destiny Hunters but also do not want to spend $190+ on them.
Any options available would be appreciated. If I buy the Warlock, I'm considering offering the Thorn that it comes with to someone for an Imago Loop, but I also don't know where I'd go for that. Kind of out of touch with social toy spaces of late.
>>5786068 ThreeA's actual release dates are nebulous. It's just how they work. Even the times when they do announce a concrete date, it often gets delayed because they have a bad habit of taking on too many projects at once and biting off more than they can chew. So basically, you lay down your money, and the toy will arrive at some point in the future. It's kinda annoying, but they are at least a legit operation, you don't have to worry they'll take your money and run or something.
Yes, ThreeA constantly gets parted out. Dunno if it'll happen with the Destiny stuff as I think it'll be worth more as a single unit. But ThreeA's community has a decent amount of customizers that buy parts or sell parts. I used to buy full figures for a couple pieces I wanted and parted out the rest. Usually made my money back. :)

Do you have problems swapping part in your figures? check this little advice >http://www.goodsmile.info/en/post/3325
I have a few questions for people who are probably more knowledgeable than myself. I already know all the stuff about avoiding heat, humidity and sun exposure but how about storing toys? Is there any rules I need to take into consideration?
I have too many toys in my collection and my place is super small so I have to rotate stuff out but some stuff i've left in boxes for years. Is that a problem? Should I just open them up every now and then or do they need to be removed entirely for prolonged periods of time?
Also, when storing toys in their original boxes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You may want to take them out once in a while to avoid possible paint transfer on the clamshells if necessary (which is why some figures have plastic wrapping, like SAS). And in some areas, move the joint avoid paint getting stuck inside the joints. This also applies to out-of-box figures, but it's something that's only an issue if it hasn't been touched in a long time.
A lot of people say that plasticizers may leak/may leak after after they've been stored in their boxes for a long time, but I have no experience with that personally so I can't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
