Still not sure what the Kaiyodo booth was like.
I assume there's no other real news.
Kaiyodo related action figures release schedule (didn't want to say Revoltechs because I wanted to include the Dokuro-man). July is still empty?
Sorry I missed making the last one(two?).

Older revoltech, but, is anyone else's Mass Production Eva weirdly floppy? Mine is especially in the legs. I find him very hard to pose without falling over--even the stand can't really hold his weight.

>>7599121
I think the problem is just that it's a really old toy at this point. The original releases I have are all a little floppy at the swivel cuts. My one re-release is definitely better, but it's still a decade old mold that they've made a ton of copies of.

This is just how niche fanbases like this one work like. With little to no inflow of new fans and what is left of the fan base dispersing into smaller groups, the community just festers over time because there's nothing keeping the "cringy shit" in check. And like >>7599257 said, it's been like that since the start, this is how the fandom cultivated itself ever since a large number of dumb kids got together through early 2000s internet culture. Like I have nothing against Eljay in specific (though I found the reviews meh for the reasons already listed), I am more annoyed by the aforementioned group of fans who desperately want to see G1 references in everything Faber releases and will more than likely turn on him once they realize his project won't be a Bionicle continuation or retelling.
Thing is, G2 failed to refresh the fan base, and most normal people have long left to focus on franchises that still exist. Which is a shame, cause I think there's many things about Bionicle that deserve wider recognition or intelligent analysis about topics that only hardcore fans would truly know about, but most of the fans who are still on board don't really dabble in that kind of content.
>>
>>7599254
>Most of the fan stuff on YouTube being garbage attempts at sheltered childhood humor that complete misses the mark of what made Bionicle interesting with the exception of channels like Vrahno and Peri,

Vrahno makes some good shit here (especially GeebMachine's dubbing of Struggle in the Drifts) and wasn't Peri trans?

I remember feeling the same way about the Spider-Man 2 ToyBiz line. The first Spider-Man movie line had a good cast of characters but the second movie's toy line was like three dozen Spider-Man figures and two Doc Ocks.

I could never find the Doc Ock as a kid either. Always would ask for one, but we could never find it. It was like trying to find a gold C-3PO as a prequel era kid. My POTF2's arm broke off and I never found another gold one on shelves til the Revenge of the Sith line.

Character Options announces new Doctor Who lines planned for B&M Stores

New Malden, London 11th June 2019

Character Options is delighted to announce a new series of exclusive Doctor Who toys that will be available later this summer from local B&M stores (UK variety retailer). Full details of the product line-up (with images) will be revealed in the coming weeks but here’s a small taster of what will be available.

Fans of the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdrivers will be able to get their hands on a heritage set of three popular incarnations.. The new blister-pack series will include electronic versions, inspired by the 50th anniversary episode, of the Tenth, Eleventh and War Doctor’s sonics.

For action figure fans,Character Options presents a set of three unique Doctor & Dalek Twin Packs, inspired by the Doctor Who audio series from Big Finish. This includes a brand new take on the Eighth Doctor, plus the Dalek Interrogator Prime, as featured in Big Finish audio book story In the Garden of Death. The two additional Doctor and Daleks sets to be released from this range will feature the Seventh and War Doctors respectively.

This year there will be not one, but two new TARDIS & Doctor sets released, each with a completely new take on both the Doctor and the blue box, inspired by adventures spanning the 1970s and 1980s.

To complete the summer line-up there are three brand new collector sets with a range of three figures in each, inspired by the Classic adventures of the Second, Fourth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors.

I wouldn't mind a dark eyes doctor, it is a nice look and you could do a whole subseries based on those boxsets, but I'm mainly just hoping for a solid Night of the Doctor, hopefully with some crisp paint

Has anyone here bought any bootleg figures on Wish? any luck?

I got the bootleg Marvel Legends Build-A-Groot back in 2016. (image is the fig on AliExpress, couldn't find on Wish).

Quality wasn't up to the Hasbro level (primarily the jointss, and the main paint texture) but I'd give it a 7/10, and when you figure it was $5 that bumps it up to an easy 8/10.

I just wanted a large Groot for my 1/18 Marvel Universe,

Looked great as far as paint goes but literally would just come apart at almost every joint just by moving it.

>>7598941
>when you figure it was $5 that bumps it up to an easy 8/10.
The price is clearly the best thing about bootlegs but if you get a passable figure or not is a total crapshoot. Sometimes you get something nigh indistinguishable from the real thing, other times you get figures that smell like harsh chemicals and fall apart in your hands. There's really no way of telling unless you happen on a review of a particular bootleg you're interested in.

DC General thread because the other one fell off the board.

So the Super Lex wave of the DC Multiverse line is finally hitting shelves. I know because my local Target has got three TEH REY figures on the shelves and nobody else. Looks like the local scalper is up to his usual tricks. But two can play at that game! I ordered Wonder Woman online at MSRP with free shipping. Not a bad deal and the seller shipped her out super fast.

Yeah, I'm pretty excited for this wave. There's only four figures to buy and complete the BAF, Super Lex. All the figures in this wave look great too. So let's get started by opening up Wonder Woman and-

What specific toylines should i be on the lookout for when thrifting for resalable items? ideally when buying something, i'm looking to make at least a 20-35 percent profit margin before shipping/handling is added in. best days and times to show up? from southern wisconsin if it helps.

Its hopeless now. especially goodwill. Those guys know what's valuable already, all the good stuff is picked clean before it hits the sale floor. Your best bet is heading to more obscure thrift stores, but even then your usual pickings will be dirty grubby toddler toys and broken stuff from 2-4 years ago. remember most thrift shops merch comes from the surrounding areas so most of the stuff you'll see is the more popular kids toys for kids up to about age 6 or 7 that you would've found at a local wal-mart that got dumped when the kid turned 8. You're not going to find vintage transformers or some rare MOSC Mego and even if you do they'll likely be in parts lot condition..

Well said. Actually handling the raptors never yielded a positive experience for me.
>>
I've said it since prior to the launch of the original kickstarter.. 1/6th raptors was always the wrong choice of scale. It goes with almost nothing else. There's not a 1/6th collector alive that paired the raptors with their figures because a bunch of joints look like shit compared to modern day clothed 1/6th figures and seamless arms and shit. They kind of go okay with 1/12 figures, but outside of mythic legions there's nothing that even goes with them because 90% of the scale is capeshit. And as talked about here, while pose-ability is decent, they are too big and unwieldly to stand and a hassle to handle, even with their actually designed stands. Basically you can get them to hang out for a few good photos and then you're fucked. 1/12 scale would have been better, as they would have been real raptor scale for 1/12 toys and then JP raptor sized for anything 1/18 which would be the vast amount of crossover collectors for dinosaur/figure collectors. Actual 1/18 scale would have been neat too, but at least we did get the hatchlings and some smaller raptor esque dinos in the accessory packs. Plus making one of the most popular yet smallest dinosaurs means that- surprising no one- all future releases are guaranteed to be out of scale with them. We get what, one or two dinos in this new KS that would be compatible with the raptors. Oh good. Fucking useless. He's off his goddamn rocker if he continues the tyrannosaur KS in a THIRD DIFFERENT scale.
>>
>>7598712
you sound jealous. why not make your own?
>>
>>7598712
>1/12 Velociraptors
You do realize they’d be the size of the old Kenner Coelophysis figures, right?
>>
>>7598714
I'm not jealous and I love dinosaurs, toys, and dinosaur toys. I'm *very* excited for the upcoming ks and have $500 set aside for it and may do more depending on how the rest turn out. I also spent a good amount on the raptors, but sold most of them except the accessory sets. Im just speaking logically as many want these level of detailed and articulated dinosaurs but want them in scale with each other.

>>7598815
Those are fantastic figures and it would be great to have raptors with some movement in that size.

I can't recommend the little dish sets enough. Here's some meal I made with the Chinese dish sets. About $5 if you find a seller in your country and a buck or so if you don't ind waiting up to a month to get them from China.

Use them as is or paint them up like I did with the lunch tray.

Aside form the bread and cake all the food is hand made. The sushi hasn't been painted yet.

I made this thread to ask if anyone here has ever returned or exchanged a defective toy on amazon.jp?

Does the buyer pay return shipping or does amazon cover it? DHL is quoting me nearly $80 to return it, which is 4x what the toy is worth. Their english-translated website is shockingly cryptic and I can't find a definitive answer. I emailed costumer support, but I'm not sure if they'll understand my question.
