Any thoughts on Mezco's Mortal Kombat X figures? I've been eyeing Sub Zero, he looks pretty good, but I'm curious as to how well he holds up in the articulation department.
Also wanna know about durability, never owned a Mezco toy before.
Get these instead
My thoughts are that they'll make the same four or five characters we already have dozens of iterations of and then they'll see the low sales and kill the line when they take that to mean no one wants MK shit at all

What does your local toy store look like?
Mini Q has mostly Japanese things like blindboxes, figmas, Figuarts, but there are a couple American-made figures.
A new report on my local toy store. It's pretty packed with old school transformers, gi joe, star wars, etc. They recently closed due to new landlord and renovation but they're gonna have monthly sales at a local board game store with a big warehouse in the back until they find a new store to rent out
I just got the Papo Baryonyx, the pictures online of it look a little goofy, but I really like it. What does /toy/ think about it? Also toy dinosaur general thread.
Cool beans, anon! His arms look articulated (shoulder swivel), is that correct? What're his dimensions?
Seriously looking forward to pic related when it comes out.
The arms don't move, disappointingl. He's a little over 12 in long. Also every photo I've seen of the baryonyx looks like hot garbage, but I was pleasantly surprised by how good this model is. All it really needs is a better paint job and it could be the best baryonyx figure available.

Gashapon general. Last one got shitposted to death by someone claiming they weren't toys, which is ridiculous. Certainly some are just plastic figures, but they also have plenty of merit as props and accessories.
What other sites are there to buy gashapons other than candysan?
Saw the movie yesterday, and I really dig Batfleck;
Are these 3 all the choices for a 6" rendition of Dawn of Justice Bats?
- the multiverse obviously isn't in the same category of the other two, but how is he for his price?
- the mafex looks good, but I don't quite see the Affleck likeness, plus I don't want to buy him just for them to release a superior 2.0 version later with a Wayne portrait
- Mezco is almost perfect, but the V shape of the torso doesn't fit, and no Wayne portrait either...
What's your opinion /toy/?

Hi viral marketing. Trying to desperately save a sinking ship?

Mine is this one
I have him on my Commander Gree

I guess it's the sad reality of two companies competing with themselves for the same general market.
Imagine if they just pooled resources to make shit instead of each fucking off and doing whatever.
Takara probably picked more accurate molds, Hasbro picked the more popular/fun molds.
Except for Hasbro Nosecone and Scattershot. There's no excuse for that crap.
I do prefer Hasbro Lightspeed and Strafe, though.
It didn't used to be this bad, a better paint job and the occasional oddity was about the few differences, now it's wait and see if hasbro's gimped their release, or if Takaras put more effort into theirs.

The S shape is always good advice though. The basic idea is that straight lines tend to look stiff.

Opinion on Variable Action Heroes?
You knoe who needs a figma?
Did anyone talk about these during NYTF?
Hasbro's created a new subline of their mix-and-match Hero Mashers line based on horror monsters.
They're all still compatible with their licensed Mashers, but the designs are completely original.
Unfortunately Hasbro apparently got a negative response from North American retailers, so these will be released everywhere else but the US.
