How well can these guys hadouken? I'm not seeing any pics with the arms closer together. Trying to decide between Storm Collectibles or S.H. Figuarts
>>7545830Figuarts is your best bet. Definitely more poseable than the Storm, and also better made- a lot of the Storm figures have real QC issues. Also their female characters look atrocious.
>>7545830Jesus that looks ugly.
>>7545853Be more wrong
>>7545830Isn't Storm Collectables a major scam company with worse customer service than a third world shithole?
So, SC is releasing regular figures of SF2 Ryu and Ken. They seem to be repaints of their Evil Ryu and Violent Ken figures, with new headsculpts.
>>7546787>>7546790I think that's pretty great that they're making a Ryu figure like this, since I always preferred his hair from SF2 compared to his really short hair from newer games. He-Man hair Ken is a nice bonus.But why the fuck did they decide to give Ken the torn pants and Ryu the perfectly cut ones? Shouldn't it be the other way around since Ryu's a hobo and Ken's rich as hell?
>>7545913They've got a really good scam of releasing a ton of figures that are excellently done. Sure.
>>7545913Yes. IIRC when questioned on the shitfest that was Bison's cracked shoulder sockets they claimed it was supposed to be like that.
>>7545831battle costume chun-li looks much better then default costume chun li but i prefer the anime face like figuarts has
>>7546787>>7546790These look so nice but I lknow I hate the rubbery feel of them and their MASSIVE size
Do you think they'll make more classic looking SF characters in this Ultra SF line?
>>7547664I hope so. Mostly because I'd like them to take another shot at Chun-Li, but with a different head sculpt. But I almost wonder if they'd really redo a figure with such a minor change like that. It would get me to actually buy an SC Chun, though.
>>7546785>>7546786 Dishonest posing.
>>7550345Minor my ass. Even if it's just a different headsculpt, it's a MAJOR difference in my eyes to get something that doesn't make her look like a worn out crackwhore.
>>7550395This image will never not make me laugh.
>>7545830These SF lines always make me sad, they never do any of the cast outside of ST beside maybe Sakura. I would buy a Dudley or Makoto figure in a heart beat, it'll never happen though. >>7550345They'll probably do her Alpha series design.
>>7550345>Ryu always looks badHe's cursed?
>>7546780Are these up for pre-order yet? And how much are they, for that matter. I haven't bought SC before, but I'm a sucker for when companies try to mimic classic looks over modern ones.
>>7550345her face looks much better in her battle outfit compared to her default
I'm tempted to pull the trigger on storm collectibles goro and one or two ninjas. Anybody here have any experience with the figures?
>>7557925I have Smoke and Shao Kahn. They're pretty neat. The ninja is way more posable than I would have though on pulling him out of the box. Kahn is less so.
>>7550395Damn this would've actually made a good Jackie Chun Li figure if they had gone all the way and embraced the meme.
>>7545830>>7546780Ryu and Ken look all bulky and SFIV-ish. I really don't like them very much. Why has SOTA never been topped?
>>7557925I've got Reptile, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Smoke, and Goro. I have Baraka on order. They are a ton of fun to pose, they hold poses SUPER well, and I've had zero QC issues with mine.Goro is fucking awesome. He's what I wanted since I was a kid, but was stuck with a fucking GI Joe...
>>7557995>>7558075Cook that sounds like a solid recomend to me. Sadly the older ones are out of print so goro, shao kahn, ermac and rain will have to do.
Will Scorpions price go down when UMK3 Scorpion is released?
>>7558160>UMK3 ScorpionIs that actually in the pipeline? And is there any word when their MK3 stuff is coming? I want my cyborgs and that Sub-Zero
How well does Storm Collectibles handle correct scale? Will Sagat be the same height as Ryu?
>>7558530In my experience, they tend to actually scale pretty well with each other. The only scale issue is that they're advertised as 1:12, but are actually a noticeably slightly bigger scale than that.
So, where the hell are these? Did they get cancelled?
>>7562902Probably gonna reveal them at SDCC.
>>7562902Remember when SOTA had Darkstalkers figures coming? We saw three or four prototypes and everything.
>>7564605>three or four prototypesSix. An entre third of the cast sculpted just to go waste.
>>7564884I remember 3 of them. What was the full list?
>>7567189Based. Fuck SC.
>Guile's theme intensifies
>>7571272>inb4 canofbeams claim they stole these effects too.That Guile looks bloody great though, would prefer an SHF but that's tempting.
>>7571276They blatantly stole his shit. He didn't say anything about any other shit they made man.
>>7571282He can cry all he wants but there's no trademark on those effects. Based storm
>>7571282>He didn't say anything about any other shit they made man.Yet
>>7571336He did like a complete analysis showing how his stuff directly overlaps what they made. Did you even look at it? He's not wrong. They straight stole that stuff and he has a real complaint.
>>7571316>small timer steals from big company- "IP infringement is a serious crime! Its' worse than the holocaust!">big company steals from little guy- "durr good artists make, GREAT artists steal, stop crying and be proud your dumbass idea is being spread to the world by someone with the means!"
>>7571352Sure he does>>7571392Cry more
>>7567836Do you have the pictures of the prototypes?
>>7546923Man look at this bootlicker. I hope you're getting paid to polish that leather and not doing it for free.
>>7571352he got the copyrights but takes too long to take legal action and now looks like a troll by spending his time filling Storm's public boards with complaints
>>7571448It's been a week. He spent a week trying to get them to talk to him. Oh wow, what a troll, trying to get a company to talk to him and resolve something outside of court.
>>7571450Well don't spend a week 'trying'. State you are giving them a week to discuss something before you take further action.The total pushover attitude he gave means Storm knows they can ignore him now.
>>7571453You're going to have to take a pick on your stance. You're bouncing from him trolling and hounding storm to saying he's being a total pushover. Also, pretty much any court wants to see people make an attempt to resolve this stuff mutually outside of court first. He's shown he tried and that storm didn't.
>>7571457>inb4 "im not the same anon who said he was trolling storm stoopid!"
>>7571459At least you realised that it was two different people, even if it was after you replied.
>>7571463Nice try, fucko. And I'm not >>7571457
>>7571453Im waiting to see him get btfo'd by the court and storm and then rant about it on social media. Guy is a total pansy
>>7571457It's that guy here who hates him cause he got banned from his sales. He admitted it in another thread.
>>7571416http://www.waktoys.com/Morrigan.htmlhttp://www.waktoys.com/Anakaris.htmlhttp://www.waktoys.com/Lord_Raptor.htmlthis link includes the rest. some of them were re-sculpted from the previous prototypeshttps://toynewsi.com/175-11669
>>7571510Those would have been amazing.
You can't deny Storm is capable of making great toys. They really need to up their QC and fucking customer service though....Oh and thieving. I had a few of their figures on PO, but no thank you. Cancelled.
Until storm actually solicits the blood piece with the new scorpion, what legal action does canofbeans have? So far it’s just a promo shot that features an identical blood splatter
>>7571795C&D to prevent further use of the piece and the mold the piece came from.
>>7545830All I want is a Storm Collectible King from Tekken
>>7571801At most, Bluefin can comply and stop selling the product with the offending piece but Storm in China definitely won't bother because the system doesn't favour foreigners.
>>7571816There's a strong chance that with them having official US distribution they are in some way registered in the US to do business, in which case it would be dumb for them to sell it as that makes us assets, like product shipments, accessible. It'd take them like an hour to make another one/change that one enough. Why risk it?
>>7571816Based storm cucking canoshits
>>7567189I've been away from /toy/ because I'd been working part time (no money for toys and all). what's with SC stealing stuff?
>>7571751>Oh and thieving. I had a few of their figures on PO, but no thank you. Cancelled.The fuck? I've gotten everything I've ever preordered.
>>7577618That’s not what he’s talking about.
>>7577579You can read all the drama here: >>7556900
>>7550345I really hope they do make another Chun Li for the USFII line, and yes for the same reason. Because I want a better looking face.
Why CanofBeams steal from storm?
CoBs has been an asshole for most of his time im this community and yeah its a bit shit that they stole his work but he didnt trademark it honestly its china what is he going to do? A casual fan will not even know who CoB is and not care about the blood effects.
>>7585460and yet if a small timer rips off a big company, we get new laws passed against such things.
>>7585460>CoBs has been an asshole for most of his time im this communityExamples? Also, you don't know the difference between trademark, copyright, and patents.
>>7585460CoB has no Chink fanboys to piss off or threaten SC for stealing his junk, any attempt by him to put SC to his knees is fucking worthless until he gets Chink proxies.
>>7585615That and he lacks money to fight them in court. It's why Jerry Only was never able to sue Hasbro and still doens't make an attempt.
