hey /toy/ I need some advice I collect vinyl designer toys and like to display them on my shelves. But a lot of them are oddly proportioned and prone to falling over at the slightest bump, one of them even stands on functional roller skates. And some I just cant get to stand on their own at all.
So my question is, what can I do to keep my figures standing? I don't want to glue them to anything obviously, but maybe sticky tack some kind of custom bases? Sorry if theres some sort of obvious solution I'm just not thinking of. Thanks in advance.
>>5720255 I am kind of pissed about this. Past years you could get things on Matty after the con, but they've said nothing about that this year. Making a lot of people worried and kinda pissed at Mattel.
>>5719962 I'm pretty poor these days, but fuck it, I preordered this the moment the reissue went back up. You don't even know man...I passed on this the first time because I thought it was too pricey, and then I slowly suffered more and more as my desire grew along with the aftermarket price. Soon it was averaging like $200 and I felt like a fucking idiot for passing on it. Now I feel like I've got a second chance, and there is no way I'm throwing that away.
I have it from the first run. It's pretty great but there were definitely improvements made for the regular/red version. Hopefully they're carrying those improvements over to the reissue cause it was mostly like joint tolerance type stuff that they definitely could.
>>5716577 I used to. I worked as an overnight stocker, and a black shirt stocker during the holidays a few years back. Wasn't bad except for the pay, and very little forgiveness for learning where the product is. At least at my location. They expected you to be very knowledgeable about products from the get-go. Co-workers were mostly cool. Customers can be a pain-in-the-ass, but that is anywhere that has customer service. Just learn to not let it bother you.
started as a stocker, went up to cashier, got sent to video games, and then started running the section. The launch of the Wii was fucking crazy and every Wii shipment made the place a madhouse through all of 2007.
Managed to get every single Marvel Legend in the last few Toy Biz series.
>>5715869 >good It might be that they are inept, OR it might be they are paranoid of losing sales from their core product. I quit playing 40k when the first Dawn of War came out, I'm sure other people would quit if they could just buy nicely detailed, articulated versions of their favorites.
>>5715917 Did someone say you were only allowed to buy one figure? Are you retarded? Besides that, you know there are tons of people that buy and paint minis, but don't play, right?... Use your brain OP.
seriously what the fuck is the deal here? Mattel has shat out two ML waves and a bunch of WWE shit since the last batch of DC toys. Even when the next icons wave hits it'll probably be even more unposeable garbage than before.
Why does DC take so much time to produce subpar products?
