>he actually thinks someone at Lego greenlit this set because they're "woke"
Is this your first experience with marketing through social media? It got people talking about the brand. Of those people who were talking about the brand, many were applauding Lego (good for the brand), while many were deriding Lego for being femininimisimistic (also good for the brand because the popular perception of MGTOWs is undesirable so MGTOWs presenting themselves as being opposed to Lego shows consumers that Lego is on the correct side of history).

which makes sense, kids were less likely to want to buy the figure due to the nature of the attraction. And since it was a disney park toy, kids seem more likely to just toss it away if that makes sense based on my experience of my youth and my younger siblings.

I would take AY WM any day but it's a bit redundant because modern comics WM is pretty much MCU WM similar to one around the WM Mark 2. Maybe swap parts for Punisher version to add some play value?

Much like how AY IM feels like an upscale Mini Mark 6 I would like an upscale of the Mini WM because it was a great toy.

Nickelodeon Releases ‘Spongebob Meme’ Toys and They’re Absolutely Glorious

Some of the greatest moments from Nickelodeon’s Spongebob Squarepants have become wildly popular memes online. Finally, some brilliant person, or team over in the toy development department have tapped into something incredibly special. Available now are figures of some of the best fan favorite moments (that have morphed into memes) in toy form.

Oh, the executive who signed off on this is about to get a fatty, fatty, bonus.

While the word ‘meme toy’ is sort of enough to make cynics cringe, once you actually see the toys, you can’t help but smile.

Produced by the Alpha Group, there are six toys available in this line. Each one is 8 and has an MSRP of about $21, and are available via Amazon right now.

Toys in the Masterpiece Meme Collection are:

SpongeGar

Maybe I just don't go to the places where it circulates but I've never seen the leftmost Spongebob meme, or at least I don't remember seeing it. Feels like a strange pick.

Also, the closed eyes Squidward variant is completely redundant. This is worst repaint/retool ever, not even slightly justified to exist.

And you would be 100% fucking wrong retard. Literally everyone knows what GI Joe is. Magic is and always will be a low rent niche property.

Anyone else ever take a figure or toy and repurpose them in your own way?

Example
>Huge Transformers fan as a kid. (Early 07 movie era)
>Friends and I made do with older figures to have fun best we could
>Find Astro-Megazord at a yard sale in decent condition and try and pay for it.
>I knew it was power rangers but I didn’t care
>Suddenly had this alien knight looking sword spaceship man in Optimus prime colors
>Created the new identity of the Cosmic crusader and intergalactic space hero Astro SpaceKnight.
>Still display him with my OG older figures as he’s always going to be that character to me.

Anyone else have similar stories?

Super7's reaction line got cool after they cut ties with Funko.
Since they left Funko, the figures and the card art are way better.

And the figures alone are not great by todays standards, but the figures with the packaging as a whole are like a cool piece of art. I'm not even a mint on card collector but I kinda feel like that's the appeal to these. A cool piece of art to hang on the wall.

I get they're not for everyone but the whole facetious "It's bad on purpose" take is dumb and misses the point.
>>
My biggest complaint with these is a lack of a resealable package. Something like the 4H Outerspace Men cards with the slide off card would be perfect.

Their original stuff especially is a ton of fun, things like The Worst and Killer Bootlegs Phantom Starkiller are incredible. Artwork across the board is nice, the Metropolis figures they put out on the oversized art deco city card were nuts.

Anyone who complains about the toys is a complete sperg "muh articulation" a toy doesn't have to be a modern articulated masterpiece to be an effective or fantastic toy.
>>
>>7508374
I agree, although I do prefer these hanging on my wall, it’d be nice to have the option to take them out and mess around with. But then I guess classic packaging doesn’t do that so it’d take away from the integrity of what they’re supposed to be maybe? Idunno.

They’re original stuff is great though. I’m bummed I missed out on the original run of The Worst. I just ordered they’re reissue if Batula but I prefer the original color scheme
>>
>>7508344
the art is cool to hang if you are a hipster basedboy and the figures are so shit it's not even funny.

I just got back from Target and noticed a bunch of the JW & Legacy stuff is half off. Not sure if it's chain-wide.

None of the newer dinos or the really big ones were included, but the larger assorted dino set was there, along with the legacy 3.75" figures: Grant, Sattler, Malcolm, Muldoon, and the Stygimoloch and Mercenary set.
Sadly, all the jeeps and such had already been cleaned out. Would have liked to get one of those.

the only thing that brings me back to these threads anymore is the desire to have some kind of closure on the super articulated raptor(s). I am feeling less and less optimistic they may release it and just want them to officially announce a cancellation already...

Honest question not troll bait. Have your collections or figures ever impacted a possible relationship with someone. How have people reacted to it?

My fiancee seems a-ok with it. She likes that I have other hobbies that don't have to include her. For our second christmas together she even got me a 4H Scarabus, which isn't a cheap or easy figure to get ahold of.

We had a party of few weeks ago and a bunch of drunk people inadvertently saw my office. My collection kind of blew their minds and everyone seemed really interested in it and people were asking me questions about various figure. Luckily I try very hard to keep my office very /toy/-centric but well-decorated and not an autistic clusterfuck, which I don't think would have been as impressive.
>>
>>7504352
people actually get interested in my collection at times and ask if I got anything new. Helps a lot that the parts of the collection that interest people the most are my model kits and painting them. So they usually ask "Hey anon, got any new projects this month you working on?" People get impressed by the idea of someone painting and detailing a kit despite most of what I do being really easy.

"Man I could never make my nerf gun look that good..."
>can you spray one solid color on a surface from a can of spray paint?
"yeah..."
>then you can get as 'good' as me, what I did is nothing
"but all those details..."
>just an ink wash, if you can stay within the lines on a coloring book that is LITERALLY all the talent you need to achieve what I got. And what I got isn't even that good
"not that good, but it looks so awesome"

People who don't do any sort of creative art type thing are so easy to impress.
>>
>>7504352
Never been a problem and I date girls others think are hot. I've also just always been active and into working out though and hold down a good earning job. Also, I'm in Asia where collecting toys isn't really so weird or odd. Girls buy gachas all the time too, as well as plushies for their desks. I've never really run into people who react repulsively to it until I went to college in the US, but even then I understand really, after seeing how some people who do collect toys there behave.

I collect Kamen Riders, every boy my generation grew up with it. Pokemon, most of the girls played it as a kid. I was born in the 80's too where the whole "nerd culture" thing is really non-existent. I mean adults still go to Doraemon and Detective Conan movies here out of nostalgia.
