Lets be honest.. Figuarts has been dethroned and now Mafex has all the power. It hurts so bad bros
>>7541729Mafex? Look, I get that Mafex shilling is your bread and butter, but if I were them I would put your measly salary towards better engineering: they need to have more than 2 good releases before anyone will consider them "not garbage".
>Dat weak bait
>>7541729Is this true or just a shitpost?
>>7541729As nice as some of the mafex figures look, they feel more fragile (less solid) in hand compared to my figuarts and they're less fun to pose. They also cost about $20 more since mafex started jacking up their prices.
>>7541729>Lets be honest.. Figuarts has been dethroned and now Mafex has all the power. It hurts so bad bros
>>7541743Thye have lots at this point, you not giving credit where it's due it's as bad as saying Mafex has overthrown Figuarts
>>7541756>Figuarts C M Punk neverA part of my know he's shit but another part of me want him for my other figures to bullying him.
>>7541770Then post which ones are good. Give us a list.

>>7541796Who the fuck is Bobba Fett
>>7541672who is the girl in the pilot hat?
>>7541880A shit character from a shit show.
Fucking when, I need a dancing Star Lord on my shelf
>>7541949>wanting dancing starlord
>>7541880some pedo anime shit
>>7541880Probably the best figure of the bunch.
>>7541880iʞnqoʇoʞ ʇuǝɔiɟiuƃɐW ǝɥʇ ǝiɹʎʞ
>>7541949NEED!! is this new? i haven’t seen this before?
>>7542071Lurk more you retarded casual
>>7541949this'll be the 3rd star lord, fucking drax gamora and adult groot when?
>>7541999>Wanting a boring static display
>>7542071I cant remember the event but its been awhile since it got showed off
>>7542106>hurr durr me call guy who never seen figure before retard. Hah me so funny. that teach him to know more.
>>7542145is this where the winter soldier, loki, and all the other figures got shown off?
>>7542148>is literally in the list of unreleased SHFs in the first post>it's also been months since he was shown offNot my fault you're a retard.
Just got Endgame Antman todaya nd I am pretty happy with it overall. Really like the eyes being visible through the lenses. Went ahead and ordered Endgame Widow, should have her Friday.
it is a very minor thing in the long run, but i really don't like the endgame box art theme
>>7541796None of these are anime figures. This is what I buy from Figuarts. This is all movieshit.
>>7542240It really is fuck ugly >>7541672Why don't we include toku shit in the lineup? Any particular reason? I kinda jus tlike to casually know what's being released.
can you have an unhelmeted endgame thanos just by itself or do you NEED the infinity war version as well?
>>7542273because if you include toku in this, it'd just be mostly toku releases. i think most people are used to going to the toku general for toku shf, so this one is left for all the other IP categories. I've got these two preordered, hoping they'll come out good.
>>7542297you need infinity war one. endgame thanos has faceplates, its forehead and ears are smooth to accomodate for the helmet.
>>7542297I wish they had a clean release layout.Hell I wish we had a resource of all the new POs dropping per month. I think the Netflix Ultraman should've been included in the doc, but it doesn't matter at all.
>>7542240They went too far with the minimalism for those releases. They don't have a sample or promo art on the covers and the section for the name looks super phoned in. It's weird because they made similar boxes for the Kamen Rider rereleases and they don't look nearly as cheap.
>>7542240yeah it's really weird... literally printing all those things on a black background would still look better. It's even weirder because there's a bunch of empty spaces with nothing on it. I don't know if it's a style guide thing but even Infinity War releases have custom logos for each characters' SHF that I first thought first pics of these endgame boxes were bootlegs.
>>7541745It's shitpost. The worst SHF is still better than the best Mafex.
>>7542305>>7542273Bandai cannot make this easier for people.https://tamashii.jp/item_announced/
>>7542324I mean all all across toylines. Like Figma SH and all them shits.Also DB is included why not Saint seya. Whays Seyas deal
So something I've been curious about for a long time but haven't had a chance to test until now: Do the mark 50 hands fit on the mark 45 and are they the same colour?To my great relief YES, they fit! The red on the mark 50 maybe a smidge richer than the 45 but it's pretty much unnoticeable.FINALLY I can get rid of those stupid oven mitts on the mark 45!
>>7541895>>7542009>I have to reply to show how retarded I am!Good job, guys. I trust you.
>>7542009>he doesn't realize pedo anime shit get the best quality engineering and care from BandaiEnjoy your capes anon.
>>7542439This guy >>7541895 is telling you the truth. It's called The Magnificent Kotobuki though. I am not sure if it caught on even close to how Bandai wanted it to and if the figure will ever see the light of day.
>>7542325Yeah, sure. I'm also expecting Bandai to post Max Factorys schedule.
>>7542470> if the figure will ever see the light of day.It already went up for preorder, retard.
>>7542331Pretty cool! Take a few more pics of mk45 with the mk50 hands.
>>7542204>>7542071This was shown off several years ago but never released yet...probably never. There's a couple others also shown off and also unreleased. https://myfigurecollection.net/entry/155563
>No new Kinnikuman figures scheduled>Doesn't even make the "awaiting" list any moreDo we just give up on the big boy?
I just got my Spike and he has a really fucking powerful smell I've never smelled on any figure before. He seriously stinks. Did anyone else get this with theirs?
>>7542273This is technically the non-toku SHF general. I'm a tokufag myself and would like it for completion sake, but the OP would probably double in length with it included.
>>7542683I'd rather more Kinnikuman over Dragonball
I'm in the middle of a SHF binge and tempted to grab Kinnikuman and Freeza, just because of their designs.
>>7542658thanks for being actually helpful
>>7542308I think the KR boxes look okay because there isn't just a fuckload of empty white space on the front of the package. The Endgame package is just a logo in a sea of white nothing.
>>7542688Bad smell means bootleg, anon.
>>7542688I know older figmas had that smell back in the day. Never experienced that with figuarts but it could be new plastics theyre using. If its anything but a rubbery smell it could be a bootleg
>>7542688>>7542981Not necessarily. I got mine as an Ami preorder and it had the PVC smell, too. Another anon was in the same situation last thread, too. Bandai just got cheap with this one for some reason.Someone suggested putting it in a plastic bag with a dryer sheet for a while. Haven’t tried it yet, but it’s worth a shot.
>>7542688That's normal for Spike. Don't know wtf happened.
>>7542683Come with us, bro ;_;
>>7542683>>7543165YOU STOP THAT RIGHT NOW
>>7542331I'm more envious that you have a mark 50. Still kicking myself for being an autistic and not grabbing him.Did just get a mark 45 cheap on ebay. What a fantastic fig
>>7543305Just get the new nano weapon one. It's the exact same figure but with more accessories.Honestly had I known it was coming out I would have skipped the first release.
>>7543331Come to think of it I'm probably repeating history again with the mark 85 lol. No doubt Bandai already has slew of dlc planned.
>>7542683They could have at least done a wave of the figures they already revealed in honor of the 40th anniversary this month, that would have been a good death for the line
>>7543576A King Kinnikuman with his cape, mask, and all that would have been a beautiful 40th anniversary figure.
>>7542867Np. I would've loved to see this Rocket realized, I like the orange better than the blue.
>>7543331Do you mean the nano blade one? Cause I planned to but it doesnt come with non nano blade hands/feetOr do you mean the newest one? I will gladly get that one if it comes with standard hands and feet for display
>>7543636The newest one. And yes, it does come with regular hands and feet.
>>7543637Fak, thank you for letting me know. Will have to grab that. Had the nano blade on preorder, but they really fucked us with that one.
Anyone have any experience with BigInJapan? They still have Hawkeye up. I’m tempted but a bit wary.
>>7543165While the turtles are well known even among normies, I don't understand why they think anyone but select few nostalgic nerds would seek out 80s turtle figures from a japanese line of figures. Most of the people who would buy 80s tmnt toys would only buy cheap american shit.
>>7543689they're fine. Purchased quite a few from them before and never had a problem
My EG Cap from MyKombini got moved up to 5/19
>>7543624that rocket does look amazing
>>7543624endgame rocket first though pls bandai?
https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-047765iron man 3 tony stark restock lads
Hi! I know it's a lame question, but would the Storm Sagat fit in the Figuarts Street Fighter line? I know that Storm figures are far from 1/12 scale but I heard that Sagat will be 20 cm big... according to wiki, he is 226 cm while Ryu is 176...
god dammit hlj why you gotta scare me like that. thought i received an order cancellation email for my mark 85 but it's just an open order reminder.
>>7543624>GOTG1 Rocket has the best live-action Wolverine costume
>>7544550I agree, everything looks great out of scale >>7543147
>>7544828I honestly don't see the issue because I don't have crippling autism, sorry dude.
>>7542683I feel like the only way we'll get more Kinnikuman figures is if a reboot anime got announced and it reignited interest in the property.
>>7544835Oh, the irony.
i don't mind scale that much, as long as the big guy is big compared to certain characters that's ok for me
>>7545051Fuck that manlet SHF Vader.
>>7544246>>7544916Yeah as much as I like MCU Rocket, comic Rocket is everything and EG is the closest to it but better. I really don't wanna drop Hot Toys prices for the 1/6.>>7544254I only wanted this for the Tony head until I found out it doesn't fit most if any of the other SHF Iron Man figures.
>>7545113Get the Mark 4, it comes with the Tony head and is all around great looking
>>7545113I never display my iron men without the mask on so the Tony head's kinda useless to me honestly.
>>7544835what the fuck are you doing here then? honest question.
>>7544307I know right.
If you preordered Cap from MyKombini they got him in, go complete your payments
>>7544922oh the ironing>>7545365not caring about scale autism while playing with toys?how about you chief?
>>7546175if you're not a little autistic you genuinely don't belong here.
>>7546175>oh the ironingNice comeback, did you think it up all by yourself?
>>7546640>Nice comeback, did you think it up all by yourself?Oh, the Irony. Nice comeback, did you think it up all by yourself?
Chances of Rescue/Pepper getting an SHF or should I just HotToys it
>>7547149It’s an Iron Man armor so it’ll happen
>>7547149It’ll get an SHF, a comicave, and a Mafex.
>>7547149Yeah Rescue is almost guaranteed. Rocket and Thor feels like a 50/50 chance.
>>7547649holy fuck just checked IW thor and he's like $200+i feel like the combination of web exclusive + people not expecting fat thor made his price skyrocketIW thor is definitely the best looking thor we got
>>7547705Yeah, he's still a little clunky but I'm extremely happy I bit when he came out and got one for <100. Apparently there's a bootleg out though, so that might be an option if anyone missed him.
>>7547705Eh I'm not too torn up about it. I never really cared for his IW costume, aside from stormbreaker (I personally prefer his Ragnarok costume more). Plus he was already overpriced before the scalping started - especially for how little he came with general laziness on Bandai's part judging by the reviews.Also, Thor's getting more movies unlike some of the other core avengers so I doubt he'll stay fat forever. They'll be another Chad Thor figure announced before long, mark my words.
>>7547761I might buy the bootleg just for the hands and stormbreaker.
>>7547801The hands are actually my biggest problem with him, they look very low quality compared to the rest of him and they barely hold stormbreaker.
>>7547705>he's like $200+I usually don't resell shit but if he's going for THAT much I can't justify keeping him
>>7547811Hmm maybe I'll drill out one of the fisted hands on the bootleg.
Will fat Thor get SHF though
>>7547901Id be so upset if we didnt.But if they did I know wed get final battle Thor, but Lebowski Thor would be an all time great figure
>suits be like fat jokes can't sell toysAnd we will be deprived of fun.
how are the spider man figuart figures? pondering because I want one, the revoltech seems able to pose nicely but fuck those shoulder gaps and the knees
>>7547919A lot of people swear by the Mafex but I personally like the feel/sturdiness of the figuarts more, even if the proportions are a bit weird (only on the homecoming figure, the later figures worked out a lot of the kinks).
>>7547705Honestly, the Thor I want the most is his outfit at beginning of IW, without the metal sleeves and with the eye patch. I decided to skip IW thor shf despite it hving a good head sculpt because it's so expressionless and without the eyepatch options. At this point it doesn't seem likely we'll ever get that. I might get fat thor SHF if it looks cool enough, especially if it comes with mjolnir and stormbreaker.
>Make photorealistic head sculpt>Only include one facial expression so they look uncanny as fuck Why do they do this?
>pay less than 100 murrican dollars for a toy>ask for as many sculpted heads and accessories as possibleWhy do they do this?
>>7548044honestly it's even weirder when they include a second head and all it does is look in a different direction, with the exact same facial expression.
>>7548084because when a $20 toy can include 2 heads and 2-3 sets of hands, it's not unreasonable. You just don't know this because you're a retarded kid who spends mommy's money and assumes "high price" means "better toy"I have some 5 POA toys I'll sell you for $200 each, the price means they're great, right?
JUST announce Pepper already Bandai for FUCK'S sake.
>>7548139>retarded kid who spends mommy's moneyLook at that EX rank projection. I earn my own money with a thing called a job. Maybe you'll understand when you grow up. I don't mind extra head at extra cost which is how Bandai can make possible. But they omit options to make price points for general public. Deal with it. Get more than one line if you like a character enough.
>>7548144Is dot matrix printing really that expensive that other figures can come with several faces, hands, etc., but their Marvel shit is usually just limited to one head?
>>7547901Fat Thor will probably be IW Thor with a different head a slightly retooled torso. He'll also be another web exclusive with no Bluefin release.
>>7548159My educated guess is that since they're working on a less-delicate scan than for example what HotToys has for the actors' heads, Bandai are seldom confident enough to open their mouths or give them expression lest them risking uncanny valley while having to work sculpts via hand from photos. The dot print should be a lesser concern. Spending time and hiring sculpters is the cost and not catching the fever train release time is also a cost.
>>7548163Battlemode Fat Thor has braided hair and beard though. Along with fat main body it might as well be more than slightly retooled.
>>7548139>because when a $20 toy can include 2 heads and 2-3 sets of handsExamples?
>>7548163>Fat Thor will probably be IW Thor with a different head a slightly retooled torso. We talk about Figuarts, not ML.
>tfw don't have Civil War Cap >don't know if they'll do Endgame CapI mean I can easily 3D print and paint a 1/12 hammer but man I don't know if I should wait or just find older Caps with shield. Or better yet kill myself for shit tastes
>>7548274>don't know if they'll do endgame capAre you talking about ML? Just get the figuarts one and give him Thor's hammer from another figure.
Is the new Endgame Captain America worth getting?
>>7548417Why does Civil War one have mask-less but Endgame one hasn't Also is Bandai going few new and making all the sentai TimeHeist white suit ver with different heads to bait people into buying them?
>>7548194Wasp & Captain Marvel ML come to mind as having alt heads and 2 sets of hands total. a few things tho about ML have put me off into transitioning into turning my collection into shf/mafex. 1) is their long necks, once you see it you can’t unsee it. 2) lack of hands and accessories but MLs are good for being cheap plus they do figures shf won’t dont such as MCU Mysterio/Vulture/Hela/Ghost etc.
>>7548274I'll sell you the original Thor Figuart for cheap.
>>7548417I think it looks good, it doesnt have the weird body shape the CW or AOU caps have, and it doesnt look like it has the weird shoulder pad pieces either. The sculpt also has the scale armor thats a callback to the old comic Cap too.
>>7548431>Also is Bandai going few new and making all the sentai TimeHeist white suit ver with different heads to bait people into buying them?>>7548197
can i get an F in the chat bois
>>7549045They should have added Thor’s hammer and broken shield accessories then I have bought it.>inb4 but muh spoilersThey could have hidden them like hot toys does
>>7549057its ok theyre gonna sell iron man and captain america deluxe
>>7549057The Hot Toys doesn’t come out for another year. If it came out now it’d be like the Figuarts because Marvel and Disney didn’t show anyone about the movie. Same thing with the Mark 50 where Hot Toys had to do another accessory set.
Any nip review samples up for Iron Man and Cap? I need to see how they look before pulling the trigger.
>>7549239cap isnt out till may 25th and iron man goes out june 30th
>>7549252That's the one.
>>7549284Thanks. Cap looks all right actually, as as bad as I feared from the promo shots.
>>7549314still a big dumb nose and not chris evan's face
>>7549341Chris Evans must be a creepy scientologist or something, where his beliefs forbid him from signing his actual likeness over
I'm still kicking myself for missing out on Iron Man and Cap
>>7549314Looks really nice. I had the AOU one and it was kind of garbage so this'll be a definite upgrade. No unmasked head kind of sucks but there was an 100% chance I'd have just bought an aftermarket one from hong kong anyway.
>>7547705>>7547797Yeah I don't really like Thor enough to justify getting a Thor that's more than 20, so the IW ML is good enough for me. That being said, I'm afraid of the possibility that Nebula, Hawkeye and any other future web exclusives will cheapen out on accessories and jack the price only cuz it's a web exclusive.
>>7549395I think there will be an aftermarket Cap head like the ones that came out for IW Cap
Does anyone here have the knockoff Infinity War Thanos? How is it?
>>7541671WHo is that and do they sell just the shopping bags?IF not is there a good place to buy some shopping bags?
>>7549395what about it looks nice? It looks horrible
>>7549757Not him but damn I thought it was okay until somebody mentioned the nose and now I can't unsee.
>>7549754En-Ken from 2119, travelled to the past to collect figures from Tamashii Nations Tokyo in 2019.Artificial intelligence that has developed rapidly through singularity in 2045 realizes inventions that could not be achieved by humanity one after another. Among them, as the largest invention, it became possible to give life by the technology of injecting "TAMASHII" into an artificially created figure.The city is full of lively figures, engaged in various jobs, and made friends with humans.TAMASHII NATIONS developed "TAMASHII" in 2059 and succeeded in giving life to figures. In the world of 2119, the mission of developing a society in which figures and people coexist is the development of various figures and injection of "TAMASHII", figures and people in the world of 2119. We develop and provide all the infrastructure to support a happy society.TAMASHII NATIONS TOKYO swallows the surrounding area and transforms into a huge TAMASHII NATIONS headquarters. In addition, it is alive and well as the world's largest figure shop and TAMASHII injection facility.Customers from around the world are rushing for figures that can only be obtained here.https://tamashii.jp/tokyo/movie/
>>7549800>make people buy a toy about the toy buying toys Based Bandai we are not worthy.
>>7549314>best likeness is on an unreleased figure
>>7549876>girly eyelashesHot. What toy is this
>>7549800>>7549867Thank you, that is fucking terrific!
can't wait for my boys
>>7549800>the Singularity is STILL nearly 30 years awaykek
>>7549876Nice as that looks, the only way they're getting me to shell out for another Cap is if they do the stealth suit.
>>7549798Chris Evans does have a pretty big nose, depending the angle.
Is bucky worth it for 63? On sale on amazon.
That Bucky makes me uncomfortable for some reason
>>7550471Because it looks more like Peter Dinklage as a full size human.
>>7549951>the actual wire-cuttervs>the philosopher who opted for a go at world desires in the end anywayAlso why doesn't Endgame Cap come with hammer. Will they do battle damaged version with blood maskless head with broken shield?
>>7550510FUCK, now I can't unsee it.
>>7544835This. Scalefags actively ruin all the fun of action figures.
>>7550920Absolutely. Scaleists!The Yotsuba on the left would make just as good of a diorama with Tad as the one on the right!(Though to be fair the tiny one on his shoulder is cute.)Some people just want all of their figures to live in the same "world" and scale throws that off. Toys are for playing and it's a bit foolish to tell people the "right" way to play.
>>7549284>>7549314I've been assuming I'd give him one of my legends mjolnirs, but it just occurred to me that he probably doesn't have a hand that can hold it. The listing says 3 options for each side, and that's probably fist/wide open/shield strap. Extra wack considering ant-man came with gripping hands for no reason.
>>7551282Ant-man’s gripping hands are for the ant, but there’s still no reason why gripping hands should not be standard among Figuarts.
>>7551302You know, I had no idea they made another one of those for EG. That makes sense, but yeah everybody should get them.
>7550920And he goes on and on and on.
>>7550037>In 30 years we will have waifu toys come to life.
>>7550695>battle damagedWe know Bandai sucks at any type of paint shading.
>>7551282>>7551302they're probably going to release another version of captain america with the broken shield and mjolnir, just like how they milked mark 50
>>7551532I'd rather they milk Cap and Iron Man than have people miss out
I never owned a Iron Man SHF so I don't know but uhhh how often are gaps like this on them?
>>7551673It depends but just find a good angle. It gets gappy if you do stuff like this but if you're displaying in front you shouldn't mind it.
>>7551532I'd hate this so much, but it's absolutely happening.
>>7551673Do you display poses like this >>7551677 from behind?
>>7551532I fucking hope he at least comes with a normal shield since I'm probably going to miss the first release
>>7551700I'm betting good money that they'll reveal Cap and MK85 2.0 before September. The nanotech weapon version of MK50 was shown off a couple months after the initial release from March last year. >>7551677>>7551752I see what you mean. Yea I like displaying figs without any obvious gaps so it'll be fine then.
>>7551787I'd be willing to cough up for a Mark 85/Rescue two back with every possibly accessory. The back parts, boosters, blasts, swappable hand/arm for stones/sans stones.Course it will be expensive but I'd bite.
>>7551787>40% less shield>low-detail hammer>chunky battle damage paint>it's an exclusive
So for these possible variations, I have a question. Since I'm always behind POs for Bandai/SHF/SS, I was wondering does Bandai show the product on Bandai teaser pages before putting up POs on likes on Amiami, or is it mostly simultaneous? I understand cases differ at times, but I was wondering how people here jump on minute 1 to PO instead of missing it past minute 4?Thanks for any tips, anons.
>>7551836>>7551823>>7551787> not buying custom made accessories from eBay and Instagram Fuck outta here
>>7552034Sure let me just buy that custom made Rescue SHF.
https://youtu.be/VcVYgBNUVa4>Homecoming figuart breaks on camera Not trying to shill this video but is that normal for that to happen?
>>7552108Looks like he put too much pressure on that joint by using it as a support when adjusting the legs. He says others have had that issue but I can't recall hearing about it at the time.
>>7552108I've been regularly messing around with my homecoming Spidey for a year now and this has never happened.
>>7552236Vader will be tall this time or just a repaint with fabric cape?
>>7552236There's been so many import vaders at this point that I'm having a hard time caring.
>>7552236Again with the fucking rubber skirt. When will Bandai learn?>>7552240ANH Vader was appropriately tall.
>>7552245What's funny is none of them have managed to surpass the Black Series in accuracy or shelf presence.
>>7552236When are they going to announce some Ep IX figures?
>>7552253Who cares? Nu Star Wars blows.
>>7552255I don't have to like the movies to appreciate the designs.
>>7552236I will say the helmet looks better this time around.Also betting that stormtrooper sells out faster than the Rogue One version.
>>7552260>TLJ Kylo Ren but with a hood on his cape>TFA Rey Halloween costume
>>7552252I don't know what kind of voodoo magic Hasbro pulled to make their Vader as good as it was, but Bandai have no excuse at this point considering the 40+ years of reference material available to them.
>>7552271>not just sticking to the troopersPleb.
>>7552274>but Bandai have no excuse at this point considering the 40+ years of reference material available to them.Makes me wonder if Hasbro have access to the Star Wars archives to take their own reference material while Bandai has to make do with supplied photos or third party sources.
>>7552284It hasn't stopped them from making movie accurate figures of some of their other popular licences (e.g. Iron Mans). Plus why can't they simply request Lucasfilm send over a 3D scan of their Vader.
>>7552252>or shelf presence.I mean, if I just want a museum pose, sure, but if I want anything more it doesn't hold up.
>>7552314Vader was never particularly agile in the movies. And even if you wanted that, all the imports to date fail due their retarded insistence on using plastic instead of cloth goods for the inner robes making him a traffic cone.
>>7552337>traffic cone.VLC Figuart when?
>>7552340>paying money for free things
>>7552371At least the price of the Winrar Figuart is optional.
>>7552236>dat stumpy & bald head partsIs this the definitive SHF Vader Ep.VI we were waiting for?
>>7552236I don't understand. Why not ESB?
>>7552248Was the ANH Vader even big enough?
>>7552394That's a good question. Every company except Hasbro seems to be avoiding it for some reason.Odd considering the anniversary's coming up soon.
>>7552450That's exactly why. Hold out and nab those extra sales in the anniversary hype.Probably means a sneaky way to charge a higher price too.
>>7552253Figure bait time.
>>7552537>>7552539These look fucking terrible
>>7552104Did you even read fag
>>7552567star wars is dead
>>7552539Looks like a Morrowind screenshot.
>>7552537That's a whole lot of cloth bandai's not gonna know what to do with.>>7552539>they said i could be anything, so I turned into an art-deco train from the 1930s
>>7552337people can keep talking about how he wasn't agile in the movies, but the Black series can't even do a lot of the pose as he did in the movies. His shoulders are too restricted.
>>7552539Which Skyrim armour is this?
>>7552034Bruh as if it's easy enough to find custom accessories for a good, not-incredibly-overpriced deal. The guy who made those awesome MK50 accessories did a great job and was affordable, but shit it went faster than the regular Endgame SHF did.
>>7552537I bet Bandai will make one or two of these guys, and skip whoever the fuck this is >>7552539. I do expect to see a Rey and Kylo for sure, maybe finally a good Poe and Finn. But if they do a Lando, I'll probably nut.
>>7553343>Old Lando in Nu-lando faglord pando robot fucker gear.
>>7553632That helmet looks 100x better goddamn. I can't believe it but it seems like 3rd time's a charm.
>>7553061>virgin my perspective vs chad high ground
>>7553632VADER IS FINALLY BIG 4 U!
>>7553627i don't remember Star Wars being WW2-ish.
>>7553632The helmet looks perfect now, but looking closely some design choices are jumping out at me. Mainly, the smoothed out belly section and the smoother gloves. Correct me if I'm wrong but did the ROTJ design ever have these design elements? I can only remember the ANH and ESB suits the most, so my memory might be hazy.
>>7553679>Stormtrooper gun from 1977Then you weren't paying attention. Han's blaster is literally a WW2 era German pistol with some crap glued to it.
>>7553632Is this even taller than the ANH Vader? Looks like it.
>>7553627Finally another chance to get standard Stormtrooper without bending over the aftermarket prices.
>still no eyebrowsyay or nay?
>>7553679That's funny because I remember a lot of the guns in the movies been built off old WW2 guns.Wait until you realise the Sandtrooper heavy blaster rifle is just an MG 34
>>7553679pretty much every single gun in the OT is WWII stuff with greebles attached
I gotta say Figuarts got beat the fuck out
>>7553731Lucas SE edits are the only canon that still counts
>>7553865Have fun getting him in 2025.With sloppy QC.
>>7553865Well I'm glad I didn't shell out for the pricier SHF. This looks magnificent.
>>7553865I knew I should have sold my SHF when it was going for $200+
>>7553869>Have fun getting him in 2025.I don't hate the SHF but this sort of mentality is retarded. I'd take waiting for a good figure of something I actually like than getting one immediately all because I'm worried that the novelty would suddenly wear off in a year.
>>7553865sleeveless thor with the eye patch and cape is how i would display him
>>7553865He looks fat.
>>7553878I mean it's hard to predict. It's not like Medicom makes regular MCU figures.>>7553881>sleeveless thor with the eye patch and cape is how i would display himAre you me? That's my ideal display for him as well, and I'm glad that the figure seems versatile enough to offer just that.
>>7553869Don't be so salty my men, there are just toys.>>7553865Anyway there's a Mafex thread go there and discuss, the licenses are all over the place so maybe you can find something you like or they'll make it someday most likely
>>7553865Cute but let's be honest, likeness will be okay at best and by okay I mean it will looks like a good cosplayer, not like the actor.
>>7553674>short capeYou were this close Bandai...
>>7553951Looks OK. Cape looks slightly shorter in that duel shot because it scrunches up when he raise his arms. One of the cons of using fabric on smaller scale.
>>7553958The cape should hit the ground.
>>7553691I don't know where they get their reference from.
>>7553986Yeah okay I was thinking it looked weird. I'm just hoping that the photographer fucked up and assembled the belly wrong by having it backwards, because otherwise they fucked up. I really hope they get this one right considering how the helmet looks pretty perfect already.
>>7553865>worse headsculpts>worse holding hand (and the SHF one is already pretty terrible>worse plastic>worse balance>shitty QC>release next centuryYeah, how could Bandai ever compete? Mafexfags are dumb as fuck.
>>7554022You seem as dumb as them for taking the bait so seriously.
>>7554022>being this loyalistHow much is Bandai paying you to smear the competition?
>>7553865my mcu collection has been shf and im only missing thor and rocket and antman so trust me i'd be happy as hell if mafex can beat the shit out of the IW thor shf.
>>7553865I hope they won't make him a manlet like the figuarts.
Figuarts Na'vi when?
>>7553960Cloth draping all the way to the floor looks stupid on this scale. Fabric are way too stiff to sort of "pool" at the bottom for this scale. Need at least 1/6 scale to pull that look. Besides, this is an action figure meant to do dynamic poses. Not going to display this with him posing just standing straight.
>>7554157At the very least it needs to be the same length as the inner robe/skirt.
>>7554157Some of the microfibre clothes used for glasses would work much better at this scale than the cheaper cloth they tend to use.
>>7554180Why should use the same material as the black series one. It lays fine from my experience.
>>7554180>>7554182They did, and they both suck at it.
>>7554230All he is saying that he was able to get Endgame Cap to hold the AoU Mjolnir by using one of the hands from the Infinity War Cap.This isn't some secret packed in accessory.
>>7553731I think the one that came bundled with Jedi Luke looked way better.
>>7553679There were a surplus of leftover WW2 weapons in the 70s so they were dirt cheap for Lucas to buy during production
>>7553865I have about 10 figuarts and have 3 pre ordered now, but seeing all the salty Figuarts fans reacting to this is fucking hilarious. SH got BTFO on this one. Holy shit ill be buying 2
>>7553632When is the pre order
>>7553865Are Mafex fags serious 200 dollars that’s more than the Figuarts fuck outta here.
>>7554230Nice try faggot all you did was add Thor’s hammer from another Thor figuarts and changed the hand.
>>7553865Figuarts tards that spend over $150 BTFO
>>7554267Mate that's in some other form of currency, it's 8580 yen or $78. Still expensive but it's probably cuz of the heads and arms.
>>7554421Only mad one here seems to be you babe.
>>7554157>a literal Bandai shillTell them to stop half-assing their Vaders.
>>7553958Looks pretty good. I really dislike the mismatch between the cape and the outer robe, though. Say what you will about Hasbro but they've always had the right idea there.
>>7554594>no uI accept your concession, dog
>7554249>please give me (You)s, I'm hungry!!!No
>>7554239this is perfect, I knew I got IF Cap for a reason
>>7555121You still have to get a AOU Thor for it to work.
>>7555134You could probably wedge a legends one in there just fine, and those are pretty easy to come by.
>>7555134way ahead of you, I bought a recast of mjolnir off ebay for cheap
>>7554157>the cape wouldn’t look good in vanilla>action figures aren’t supposed to be vanilla Pick one
