For me it's Venom.Also John Wick should be releasing this month
pls let it be good
>>7578928Really hope the finish on this one is closer to the actual promo pics, I was kinda disappointed with spidey; still like the figure, but I liked the brighter colors a lot more
>>7578928I'm so excited for the blue. THAT is how I like my Venom
>>7579085Might have to buy the ML venom to do this headswap
I'm still waiting for IW Thor's preorders to open up
>>7578705Thanks. Working with just a camera phone at the moment.
>>7578928I really like the look of their Cyclops from its promos, but i'm waiting for it to release before i end up buying it.I've been wanting a good cyclops for ages and since the Mezco one looks rubbish Mafex will have to be my savior.
>buying shitty import Venom>not the superior Marvel Legends VenomHave you all grown slanted eyes that blind you from truth?
>>7579957I know this is is a shitpost, but I couldn't resist.
I was able to grab the reissue of Spider-Man, and threw him in the same order as my John Wick pt. 2, so I'm pretty hype for those two.
>7579957And is pretty easy to find!
>>7578989Don't count on it.
>>7580275plz let it be lighting issues
>>7580403We can wish but we know it's not lighting issues.
>>7580406i mean the blue in his leg looks pretty metallic
>>7580275Relax guys its the lighting. He will be the definitive version. He has to be.Either way, we're in the endgame now.
>>7579891i thought it was suppose to release already
Better review with close up shots for mafex Eva. Look at all the paint and panel line splatter and paint just not properly cured. Plastic can look good in certain lighting though which is a semi relief. https://youtu.be/HjtGnUUU87g
>>7580660Oh my god the rubber on that torso hahahahah
>>7578928Head is too small.
>>7579891My top pick too. I'm mostly excited to see Mafex try their hand at a posable tail. The lack of pictures has me worried a bit though.
John Wick shipping when?
>>7580461And all the red looks like bare plastic.
>>7580406>we know it's not lighting issues.KEK
>>7579891Hope they don't use a rubber torso like >>7580660
Really hope more comic version of characters are made.
>>7582292>subjectanon wanders into the Mafex threadSup!
>>7582307>>7582292Don't you fucking ruin the thread, you pieces of shit
>>7582292Silly anon, Heddie can't die.
>Have Wick>JL Batman came yesterday >pre ordered Cyclops and Wolverine I want some more lads how’s Boba Fett?
post pics of batman?
>>7582993Not sure how I feel about the cape but god damn he’s great
>>7582989Return of the Jedi Boba is very good, one of their first really solid releases.
>>7578928I really want to see the john wick head on the venom body
>>7583027nice, i’m contemplating on getting him or the shma godzilla
>>7581195Close. Mafex decided to cut costs by using a gloss top coat instead of metallic paint.
what if they make the first iron spider shitty on purpose so they can justify an iron spider 1.5 to their customers?! o_o
>>7582276>1:12 EVAThat's not how scale works
Shit, I didn't want John wick but now that I saw jw3 I wanna pre order that fucker
>>7580275Stil looks to be the only shiny release
Deadpool is pretty good.He actually comes with gun holding hands if the lack of guns bother you and he can even hold the Revoltech's guns.He isn't perfect but he doesn't have any of the awkward sculpting quirks of all the other Wade figures out there.>>7579085Yeah. Spidey is still easily the best Spidey figure on the market but he looked better with the more vibrant colors.
>>7583559Meh, the Legends are still the better figures. The lack of guns is a huge glaring problem.
>>7582307>>7582655Holy, shit, you just exude pure autism.
>>7583562I couldn't disagree more but you do you.I feel like having a better overall figure is much more important than having guns out of the box and it isn't like there aren't plenty of 1/12 weapons out there to borrow for him.
>>7583575It's not even an improvement, the figure is lacking a lot of detail, and their plastic color cost cutting is already sneaking in with this release.
>>7583564Getting mad over Headdie is peak autism tho
>>7582292>>7583564>not liking on of /toy/ best postersShame on you
>>7583580>getting upset at toy companies cutting costs in the year 2019you really should just expect it at this point
>>7583562>>7583575>>7583580>>7583608Bitch please>same price point-more articulation, more paint and more accessories
>>7583580It can pose without looking stiff unlike the Legends, isn't deformed like the Figma or Revoltech, it comes with a decent amount of stuff and it captures the Gurihiru look about accurately as possible and that is good enough for me honestly.The paint situation does seem a little bare and the guns are annoying but it is still my preferred Deadpool figure.
>>7583611You are right. Clearly this shitty Jazzwares figure from an unrelated property is the best Deadpool on the market.
>>7583617It's not shitty (it's better than ML shit) and you miss the point, hastard
>>7583562>the Legends are still the better figures.
>>7580122*Attack on Titan op 1 intensifies*
Why NECA/MLfag is here?
>>7583666they're jealous Hasbro is learning from the Japanese toy makers
>>7583666Because we are giving them attention, just ignore them, let's make this general the first of all generals that successfully ignores them
>>7583612You suck pretty hard at posing if you think the Legends looks stiff.
>>7583712If you're poor, sure, but bootlegs with double jointed elbows for females go for 8$ on ebay.
>>7583722Leave it to puke like you to recommend wasting your money on bootlegs.
>>7583729Double jointed elbows > inferior single jointed elbows
>>7583736>Even bootlegs are better than hasbro >>7583264kek
>>7583740Did you get dropped on your head? How can you even think for a second that's better?
>>7583740Holy shit already better engineering, how is that possibly
>>7583741it has standard double elbow joints
>>7583764>standardOh the delusion on this one.
>>7583580do u people still not get that this Deadpool is based off the specific Gwenpool comics??
>>7583785So that's why it's bad?
>>7583785Actually he was barely in Gwenpool and wasn't in this costume in his one major appearance.This is more based on covers featuring Deadpool (I am not even sure they have done an entire issue) done by the same artist.I guess they wanted to continue working on a Gurihiru sub line but wanted to put a proven seller in there instead of putting out something risky that Gurihiru has covered like Ms.Marvel, Squirrel Girl, the Power Pack or the new Wasp.
>>7578989this is the first time the mcu iron spider has looked at all appealing
>>7583931do you not like game or do you not like the toys?
>>7579169Same here. When the fuck are we getting that?
>>7578928After getting comic Spidey, I immediately placed an order for Venom. I'm hella excited for him.
>>7584149Same.After Gwenpool, Spidey and Deadpool turned out great I can't wait for Eddie and Evil Gwen.
I'd give a nut for a Mafex She-Hulk or Power Girl
>>7584238Thanks for the spam, asshole
apparently amiami is sending out emails about a redesign in the iron spider.
>>7586250Nope, Homecoming Spidey.>Thank you for ordering with AmiAmi. >We would like to inform you that there is a change of design for :>FIGURE-048309>MAFEX No.103 MAFEX SPIDER-MAN (HOMECOMMING Ver.1.5) "SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMMING">Our website will be updated within 24 hours to reflect the change.No idea what they've changed now.
Anybody got their Evas yet? Been trying to find a size comparison between it and the Unti 13 model kit but no luck yet
>>7582307God. It's not even the waist cut, it's just how thin his body is compared to his thighs that protrude heavily. Thighs are twice the width of his body from the side. That's just ridiculous.
when is thor going up
>>7586286Someone save snapshots of it now to compare with later.
>>7586293im actually hoping the seller i preordered it from will drop order.
Should I bite the bullet & order the Mafex Pennywise? The biggest thing it has over the NECA seems to be articulation, particularly in the legs, but it also has way less accessories.
Think Mafex will get the license for the Infinity War/Endgame stuff? They seemed to avoid non-Iorn Man/Spider-man MCU stuff until the Thor reveal. I just really don't want to support bandai and their shitty business practices, and even though I'd prefer Comicave versions of the newer suits I doubt thats happening since they're basically a shady as fuck company thats barely alive. Medicom are no angels but releasing 3 Mark 50 figures was a dick move by Bandai. Really hope they make 50, 85, and Rescue.
>>7584238Spiral out, KEEP GOING!!!
>>7586517I wouldn't bother unless you can get it on clearance or a sale. The NECA figs have enough variety now you can't go wrong there.
>>7586551It seems pretty likely but they'll also take a while to come out.
what day are Mafex usually shipped out?>>7584173same. it'd never happen though
>>7587138No specific days but it seems like they're usually released near the last weekend of the month.
>>75834951:12 EVA would still be like 21 feet tall
>>7586517for what it's worth, their sculpt in the promo pics look like the better likeness but I'm not sure I trust mafex at this point to deliver what they promise with these pics consistently just yet. They've been on a good run recently, then that EVA 01 just looks like dog shit smeared on a good sculpt. If Pennywise turns out good, I'll happily pay the late tax and pose him next to my NECA.At this point, the NECA is so inexpensive that you might as well grab it first. It's still a very nice toy of Pennywise.
Just saw John wick 3How's the mafex of him?
>>7587224>>7586560The NECA’s going to be grossly out of scale with an import 1/12 collection though. Mafex Pennywise seems like a good option for tormenting your John Wick, 2001 astronauts, Freddy Mercury and Bruce Lee SHFs, etc.
>>7588737It does not yet exist but the one from the first film is pretty good.
>>7588879Why worry about scale? That's silly.
>>7588879I actually don't mind the scale error because it makes him a good monster for my bugmen. I get that he's only that huge because in the movie we only saw him contend with kids. If the mafex pennywise is good though, i dont care if he's big enough for my other toys or not, I'll get him. Plus the only horror movie toys I still have is just the revoltech aliens, which are small too and NECA Pennywise and Pale Man is there for the slightly larger scale on my shelf.
>>7589297thor being teased
>>7589297So much for "no metallic paint". I really want to see them do some more Iron Man figures, their Mk 45 was extremely interesting from an engineering standpoint and far more accurate than the SHF, but it was back in the really dark days of Mafex QC.
Looks like a homerun
>>7589297>>7589380so glad I passed on the figuarts version for this, I wish I'd waited for Thor though
>>7589324scalpers getting ready
>>7589411i need that PO to open up soon!
>>7589297>>7589380This sure puts my heart at ease. Looking good!>>7589324I wonder if Thor will be much taller than the SHF MCU guys.
>>7589297I'll believe it when I see the final in-hand review pics.
>>7589380regardless whether the plastic will turn out shit or not, or if the mass production look like this or not, I'm really amazed by how much better the head sculpt is on the mafex for spiderman compared to anything else.
>>7589324I don't care about the MCU at all but more Thor love means we are more likely to get a comic Thor someday so I am all for this.
>>7589297>>7589380B-BUT THAT MUST BE FAKE! THE REAL FIGURE ISN'T METALLIC LIKE IN THIS PIC >>7580275 AND WE KNOW IT'S NOT LIGHTNING ISSUES!!!!!!!!
>>7589616honestly, i’ve been waiting for a good MCU Thor, This version, plus a fat Thor & i’ll be happy & done collecting Thor figs. unless something cool & radical happened to his design of course.
>>7589380>>7589297Well, I guess I'm in. The current amiami listing for august is the reissue, right?
when is big chap releasing?
>>7586517It's a different scale than the NECA.If you prefer Japanese 1/12 figures then nab it, if you prefer 1/10 or just don't care either way then get the NECA.
>>7589616>Comic Thorplease don't tease me like this anon my heart can't take it
>>7589380Hope he's not fragile. Also hope they don't ask for a payment request till like, next week...
>>7589297>>7589380Fuck yeah. Still holding my breath until I have this in hand but stoked on the look in these photos. Have they hinted on when Thor will go up for presale or will we have to wait until 2021 for that?
>>7589811Supposed to be this month. No exact date.
>>7589324I want a fat Thor.
>>7589324did thor get solicited already?
ah, retards getting btfo by mafex, i dig it
i wonder if anyone canceled their po because of earlier pics of it
>>7590146Is this due out this month? My Amiami pre-order says June but the actual item page says August
>>7590146Take that you stingy fucker at Tamashii nations. They're almost on par with marvel legends with the amount of accessories. Thank god for completing company like this who have to sweeten the deal with all the "extras" which shouldn't be extra when you're paying over $80 for a 6 inch piece of plastice.
>>7590153according to their blog they said at the end of the month. idk desu, i got mine on hlj & put it in the private warehouse incase it gets a release alongside pic related. We shall see i guess
>>7589731>>7589737>>7590098To be honest you sound more retarded then the people complaining about the picture.
>>7589380The paint job looks great! I just don't really like the way they handle the diaper looking hip/waist joint.Reminds me of the old shitty SHF dbz figures.
>>7590153Yes. There's two item pages, one for late June and the other for the a re-release in August
>>7589887I am amazed it hasn't happened yet between the import lines since he is one of the most consistently popular movie Avengers as far as I can tell.Classic Thor and Cap are the things I want the most out of the line.
>>7590166"I never yielded!" Haha I hope the release him too, I wasn't a huge fan of the lion king- I mean black panther, but this guy looked too good to pass on. Iron spidey will be my first Mafex so hopefully they both have tight joints and look as good as the promo pics, but hope the both get shipped soon.Does Mafex have the licenses for all the infinity war characters? Do the plan to do every main character, how are the deciding which characters to produce? I would love a MK 80 iron man with rdj head and gauntlet hand...
>>7590302To be honest you sound pretty pissed because people points out that you was wrong with your complaining about the picture.
>>7590361Because people want movie Avengers, not comic avengers. X-Men and Spider-Man are more popular in comics.
>>7590326>>7590604Pissed about what? The figure looking great?You seem more upset about some calling you out.
>>7590607Why would comic versions of the X-Men sell and not the comic counterparts of the single biggest superhero team in movie history?I guarantee you that they are a hotter property at the moment in the comic world and that plenty of people want Cap, Iron Man and Thor.
>>7590646because comic avengers have not quite been as popular as comic x men or comic spider-man. i dont know though if the movie has done it wonders or not.
>>7590166god i want them to do a killmonger. no other import companies have done that and the only competition is a good marvel legends. if mafex does a killmonger, I'm all in. Heck, I'd rather have Killmonger in my display than black panther.
>>7590721While the Spider-man and X-Men (I am actually not so sure how the X books are doing lately but they were huge in the 90's) books are usually better sellers than the Avengers books the Avengers are far from slouches and it isn't like comic inspired Captain America and Iron Man stuff hasn't already proven itself on the foreign toy market. If they next comic Mafex announcement isn't an Avenger I will be pretty surprised.
>>7590640Mad about being wrong and people pointing it out
Now I'm almost positive figuarts had an exclusivity deal with Marvel to release infinity War and Endgame figures since the release of the movies up until a year, then after that is fair game for Mafex to release Avengers figures
>>7590361I just want more comic book figures anon. I was hoping they'd complete the X-Men so I don't have to get in line for the MLs.
>>7590957if so, better for Mafex to actually get their figures more screen accurate unlike shf
>>7590968I am sure we will get Gambit and at least one of the girls.I am not sure they will get to all of the Jim Lee team members (especially Beast and Charles) but we will almost definitely get most of the big names.
John Wick fucking when? Between E3 and Toy Story 4 I need me some Keanu in my life. I'm hoping I made the right decision with Chapter 2. I like the suit and guns better plus he was cheaper in Amiami.
>>7589380Does anyone else think the blue is too bright? It's much darker in the movie. Also:>no blue lit up eyesSo close.
>>7591876Latter this month.
>>7591876plus he comes with doggo
>>7591984Doggy from the first movie was cuter though.
>>7590957Both companies make figures of Star Wars at the same time, so I doubt it
>>7592111I hope the Star Wars line isn't dead. Words can't describe how disappointed I am at this once untouchable franchise now playing second fiddle to capeshit.
>>7592111They are two different IPs though
>>7592142IF they didn't onboard retards worse than hack synder they wouldn't be in this predicament
>>7590913>>7590956Oh boy you seem upset.
>>7590957Or maybe Mafex just works slow
>>7590968You should buy the MLs then sell them to pay off Mafex. Some of those ML figures are going for $90 now.
>>7592547depends on area. i live in south east asia and marvel legends arrive here at retail stores and shopping malls for ranging from 40-60 bucks. It's a really hard sell. They end up bargain binning then you have to see if they hit a decent price whenever you visit the mall again... and even then it bargains at 30 bucks at best. i feel like marvel legends are a great option when they're 20 but at 30 i feel like they're a hard sell for me.
>>7592142Yuh ou have Disney to thank for that.
>>7591298Oh man I really hope so. I don't even mind getting doubles or triples of characters.
>>7592547I kind of have autism when it comes to these figures anon. I get attached to them and can't resell them. I've never sold a single one yet.
>>7592142Same. I love the ESB Boba Fett. They should make a come back with ESB Luke and Vader and BTFO Figuarts.
>>7592537and yes, you still responding
BTAS Batman fucking when bros?
>>7593605>STAS figs never
>>7592142>tfw star wars has always been shit to me, so now i'm happy that the new movies are so shitty that its widely acceptable that star wars sucks.
>>7593962>I dislike something so i hope it sucks for everyone else.Grow up. Faggot.
>>7595156He's not wrong at all, Star Wars has ruined itself thanks to Disney.
>>7595215Unless Disney has a time machine the good ones will always be good. And he is not making a point that Disney is ruining it, but rather tyat he is happy about it because he never liked it, which is retarded.
>>7593623Sucks man I just want comic versions of batman and superman
>>7595319Serves Disney right for fucking up in the first place.
>>7595336What serves Disney right? How does that has anything to do with what i just said?At least try to make some sense.
Just got my Eva 01 today. Was planning on starting a small to medium mecha display. What are some other good Eva figs? Doesn't necessarily need to be the same scale, but I'd prefer if 00-02 were all in the same series, like the Mafex ones.Thanks in advance for help, anons.
So now that Eva-01 has released and after all the reviews on here, would y'all recommend this over the Revoltech or some other alternative? Right now the Revo EvoEva01 is on sale at HLJ and I'm thinking of shipping some other figures out an Eva.
>>7595579PO the rest of the Mafex ones and pose them together, Jeez.
>>7595591if you get a revo 01, also get the 03 since it comes with a better head
Did anyone here actually grab deadpool? I probably don't need another one and he's more expensive than I'd like, but he does look really nice.
>>7595865I was going to and while he does look good u couldn't justify the high price tag when I also have a couple MLs, the AY and the Mezco.
ima need them to put up infinity war thor asap
>>7596031>waiting for mafex announcement/preorder/release
>>7595345Be nice, anon. His mom and dad were raped by Disney.
>>7595865Nah, it was an easy call to pass on him. I like the style but he just doesn't come with nearly enough. to justify the price. He doesn't even come with a pair of pistols.
>>7595319>huuurrr you always have the originals huurrrrYou sound like a faggot. SW sucks now. Thanks to the new ones.
>>7595865i did. I like him better than all the other Deadpool’s ive had, to be honest
>>7596139>You sound like a faggot.Says the faggot with no arguments.Do you think old albums suck now because new albums by the same band are bad too?Go whine some more on the internet about it, maybe if you whine enough the whole internet and everything said before you did will start sucking as you do.
>>7596193B-but he's cool because he hate things and hating Disney is trendy!!!
>>7595865He is easily my favorite Deadpool figure.Just make sure you have some guns around since despite coming with nice versatile pair of gun hands he doesn't come with guns.
GIVE ME THE PAYMENT REQIEST, AMIAMI
>>7595579post pics of your eva 01 please. i need some assurance that mine won't turn out absolute shit, even if yours turn out ok and mine still turn out crap.
>>7596325Not that guy, but...
>>7596193>Do you think old albums suck now because new albums by the same band are bad too?Except they aren't. New Iron Maiden is just as good as the old stuff, and Judas Priest only got more intense.>abloobloo Blaze Bayley sux, I want Bruce back!>waaah baaaw the new Bruce albums are trash! The old stuff was better!The Blaze albums were okay and the stuff since Bruce came back sounds good too. I'll admit the Ripper era was trash but only because KK is a shit songwriter and Glenn needed Rob to co-write(Glenn's own solo album was a bit iffy in places, the lyrics were somewhat questionable) and Ripper was just a mouthpiece not allowed to contribute.Misfits were actually better with Jerry. Fuck you. Graves was okay but he fucked up doing drugs and got rightfully tossed, and Glenn will always be a lousy one-hit wonder who can't sing or successfully sue anyone.
>>7596374>Except they aren'tYou listed two bands. Cool. Not all of them continue to produce good music through their careers. That however doesn't make the previous music they made bad. I hate what Disney did to Star Wars and I refuse to give them money going forward for it. But I still enjoy the OT and parts of Revenge of the Sith. In fact watching those films is all the more upsetting because of how good they were compared to now.
>>7596449wtf I think that guy you replied to is legitimately retarded>Do you think old albums suck now because new albums by the same band are bad too?>Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Abloobloo Blaze Bayley!!wtf?! no one even mentioned anything about that shit he's ranting about
>>7596449>>7596507I honestly think that Anon has mental problems, i mean, all his responses are very literal and taken to extremes, if he considers a part of something bad than everything is, on the other hand the bands he likes are good because he considers everything done by them good. This is quite the lack of nuance, even though he does seem to aprehend well the details of the stuff he likes. I actually know a kid with Asperger that shows similar lines of thought and behavior.Oh well, it's the internet and 4chan of all places, i guess we are bound to attract at least a few people within the spectrum.
>>7596193Found the Disney shill
>>7596193Doesn't change the fact that SW sucks now because of basedfags like you.>>7596297Eat a dick samefag.
>>7596507>>7596546>samefagging to rhetorically defend and suck off Disneywhew
>>7596661I'm >>7596661 and I'm not even talking about Disney. I'm talking about how someone was making a point using a comparison about old albums and new albums and you started talking about specific bands no one was even alluding to. I mean just on your post alone you bring up Disney when that's not what the discussion is about. You really might be autistic or something.
>>7596676I mean I'm >>7596507
>>7596376I almost want this just for that gun. It could be used with so many other figures.
>>7596661The second one was me and your total failure to understand what i or the other anons are saying only makes it more evident that you either have mental issues or are pretending to be retarded for the attention. Not to mention that this has nothing to do with /toy/ anymore, it's basically /tv/ and, thanks to you, it's borderline /mu/.
is there a medicom shipping schedule online like goodsmile's?
Iron Spider is back on amiami but it also says order closed
>>7596676>>7596756>can't comprehend an analogy>thinks everyone who replies to them is the same personIs this whole accusing others of autism-thing a form of projection? Seems that way.
>>7596870You don't even know what an analogy is idiot. What he gave are specific examples not even relating to the point being made. It would be like me saying mammals usually have tits because they have to wean their young and you autistically screeching "but platypus lay eggs!! reeeeee!!"
>>7596876All you've shown is that you're chronically unaware of your own surroundings- not only physically, but typographically too, apparently.Stop embarrassing yourself, please.
>>7596950So you've been exposed as an idiot and all you can say is please stop? Damn. Sorry bro.
>>7596952Just ignore the fucking drama queen, fuck.
iron spider>hlj june 2019>amiami august 2019????????????????????
>>7597241It looks like the August release is a reissue. It seems like they might have decided to make more after their Homecoming and comic Spider-Man figures sold so well.
>>7597249MAFEX always does stuff like this, their reissues are like a couple months after initial release so they have to be planned from the start. It's probably why their stuff takes so damned long to actually come out, they've got their factory time booked up in advance.
I just want the payment request for Iron Spider already so it's not a surprise to me two weeks from now.
>>7596686The drum is removeable and has molded/painted bullets visible inside of it, if that helps your attraction to it.
Are preorders open for the John Wick 2 figure anywhere? He's sold out on amiami, HLJ, and hobbysearch.
I didn’t pay attention and totally didn’t realise there would be such height difference.
Not totally a fan of the black material the Mafex has in its torso (reminds me of the 1/12 Medicom figs), it coverses up the joints but really hinders possibility. And might start to degrade in time.
Still found the Damashii to be more easily posable in general. Mafex is a bit I don’t know…gangly, to pose, I guess.
The purple colour on the Mafex looks more accurate, and so is the detail like the logo and writing on the arms, as are the seam lines that are sculpted onto both, but only painted on the Mafex, like the lines on the legs.
While the overall shape looks more accurate on the Mafex, the sculpt decisions they made for the Damashi, for me, make it easier to pose, like the hip/leg joint is super easy to pose and keep looking good in a pose.And there is a wider gap between the shoulder fin that goes around the arm on the Damashii, making easier to move the arm, while on the Mafex I found the shoulder fin kept getting in the way.
Why did they put Deadpool’s legs on ratchets, I feel like I'm gonna snap something off when I try to move them forwards and back. And I can barley drop his legs down to get the extra poseability without pulling so hard it makes a loud squeaking noise and feeling, again, like I'm gonna break something off.
>>7597909Ok, I'm dumb, they're not on ratchets, they were just sooooo damn tight that it was making a noise like a ratchet whenever I tried to move them. I put some dish soap in the joints and now they're moving more easily (still really squeaky).
Just got Eva-01. Revoltech tier paint, loose joints, parts falling off if I look at them funny, shitty engineered hips. Why the fuck did I gave them a fifth (or was it sixth?) chance? Fuck Medicom and their shitty ass toys.
>>7597569what took you so long. it just recently sold out on amiami
>>75978486'0 vs. 5'13
>>7597923>D-amazing had the same snapping sound on his legs>this is commonYikes, gonna be alot of broken hip-joints before the end of the year.
>>7598340Mine has a crazy tight leg too. Be careful guys.
>>7598340>>7598359You guys are justifying my skipping this release more and more.
>>7597848>>7597849>>7597853>>7597854>>7597856The mafex's hips don't look retarded like the RD, so that's a win.
>>7597909>>7597923>>7598340>>7598359I had the same squeaking on my first run homecoming spiderman's hips and justice league wonder woman's shoulders. I threw some graphite powder on spider man's hips first thing and he's been all good for the last year and a half of posing him a ton. I didn't do anything on wonder woman though, and her shoulder sheered off at the peg. Sooooo if you get ahead of it you're probably good, but people who don't know what's up are in for a bad time.>>7597849This just singlehandedly turned me off buying it. I actually like that height and paint, but jesus, that bend is almost nothing. How are the shoulder pylons attatched? That's something I always hated about the RD and wanted someone to do better.
>>7598365I thought Mafex was good now.
>>7598423Sounds like you will change your mind stupidly fast when you'll have it in hands.
>>7598476There's a balljoint out of the shoulder area of the torso that a small intermediary joint piece that's molded as part of the torso plugs into, then the shoulder pylon plugs into that with another balljoint. It's a fairly safe, moveable system that ensures you'll pop a balljoint rather than break something. They're not directly attached to the arms at all.
>>7598480Honestly it really seems to be hit and miss on which releases are good and which aren't. Although they're tending to shift towards more good releases than not.
Not that other Anon, but I got my Eva01 today and also did a couple of size comparisons with some of my older Evas.Bandai Model Kit, Mafex, an an Eva02 that has a SEGA stamp on it. The SEGA one is pretty nicely scaled even if it doesn't have a ton of articulation.
>>7598729With a Kaiyodo Eva 01.>>7598423>>7598365mine isn't particularly tight anywhere but one foot is super lose and falls off easily. Also i had a hell fo a time getting the hands to swap. The peg wouldn't go in the hole, I was worried I might break the thumbs.
>>7598730He scaled pretty well with these old Bandai Angel model kits. Too bad they are both basically statues.
>>7598476Here's what the material looks like close up, like a matt, rubber/latexey thing, I'm not sure. It does seem reasonably sturdy I think, But yes, if you bend the figure forward it uncovers the top of it on it's back.
>>7598739the gashapon has articulation
>>7599331Sorry, meant to say, yes, it really hinders articulation when you try to bend forward. And when you do bend it forward you can see the top of the rubber thing sticking out on it's upper back.
>>7598476>How are the shoulder pylons attatched? That's something I always hated about the RD and wanted someone to do better.This is the set-up:The shoulder has a ball joint sticking out of the top.a little triangle thing pegs into that.Pylon pegs into the triangle thing.It is pretty much the same set up as RD except in the RD the triangle thing seems to be permanently attached.But yeah, the Mafex pylons have been popping off a lot more for me then the RD do (which doesn't happen to much on my RD Evas).
>>7599343dear god, please drop order for my pre-order of this and i won't be pissed at all.
>>7599334>>7598739I have wanted to rip the plastic arms off of that Zeruel and replace it with some sort of ribbon with a wire in it for ages but have not found the perfect ribbon yet.
Iron Spider comes out Saturday according to Medicom's Twitter. No word on John Wick 2 but I'd imagine it'll be out on the 29th.
>>7602489Any idea when Thor's going up?
>>7602566september, then it'll take a year to come out and get delayed twice
Just got my Iron Spider payment request from AmiAmi.
>>7602937Now that...is actually tempting.
>>7602940I'm getting him for sure. Now I hope comic Supes is next.
>>7602937OH FUCK MY DICK
>>7602942It's pretty great isn't it? Mafex stepping it up!
>>7602937Still haven't bought any Mafex, but I gotta say, one thing I really love about them and their ads are that they feel charmingly retro. I think it's largely the logo, it makes me think of my uncle's collection of Japanese toys back from the 70s.
>>7602944Yeah plus they're making actual retro comic designs. I hope they keep this up.
>>7602937That cape better have a wire in it.
>>7602937I'm not even that huge of a Batman fan...or maybe it's that my idea of an ideal Batman is very specific, so I've been largely ignoring all the toys of him that have been coming out. Visually, this one immediately has my attention. It looks amazing and I even like the Bruce head. If this can actually pose decently, this might be my first Mafex.
>>7602953Yeah this just looks great. It's an autobuy for me since I'm hoping it will have close to Spidey articulation too.>Comic Spidey sold out. >ML figures that spike in price are usually the ones that are loyal to the comic or the series (Jim Lee designs).Why does Revo keep on insisting on stylized versions? Why does Figma only go for fotm (Injustice, Ninja Batman)? What I don't get is why other companies don't make accurate designs. I actually bought the aforementioned above while hoping someone will eventually make the iconic designs. I'm really really glad Mafex decided to make some money and take that market.
>>7602937Damn, guess I'm gonna have to start collecting another line now. I'm excited to see how this goes.Between X Men, Avengers, and now possibly Justice League (and mafex's year long pre-order lead time) how many years will it take Mafex to release enough figures to get a mostly complete core team going?Too bad these figure are $90 a pop, when they should be near $75ish.
>>7602959Why does Revo keep on insisting on stylized versions? Because that has always been their thing--Yamaguchi's stylization and reimaginings have always sort of driven the line. Everyone knows you don't buy Revoltechs for accuracy, you buy them for hyper-dynamic proportions and posing ability. I mean, Ingrams never posed like this in the source material--which is why I'm so glad Yamaguchi exists. He gives us an interesting alternate take while everyone else races to have the most accurate figure.Why does Figma only go for fotm (Injustice, Ninja Batman)?Because Figma DOES fotm. That's been their schtick for a long time and it's not gonna change now. They typically chase what's popular, what's gonna make money. Why else do you think they largely just make moeblobs while ignoring legendary older anime?
>>7602971Shit, forgot to greentext. Whatever. You get it.
>>7602937So minor complaint. The batarangs. Were they white in the Hush comic? Because I hate that. I want black batarangs.
>>7602970Yeah that's my one gripe about them. They're usually more expensive than other brands. I have no idea how long it's gonna take them but since I like to mix and match I can form a complete team from various lines. Would be great if Mafex makes more though.>>7602971>>7602976I wish Revo would go accurate though. Accuracy plus hyper posing would make them a lot more money than they're making now. It will still be the same hyper posable figure just with a more accurate and iconic design. Although at least them not being accurate allows me to justify getting Mafex versions of Wolvy, Batman, and Venom even though I already have Revos of those.You're right about the Figma but with the size of their company, I think they can afford to add a comic accurate line. I'm guessing the only reason they don't is because the license is too expensive and they don't think it will make a lot of money. It would also be terrific if they made classic anime Figmas too but I guess what they have sells enough for them to even try branching out.>>7602978Not sure anon but I'm hoping that's just some lighting thing and they're actually black. The pic is kinda crappy and everything.
>>7602988I'm not sure but wouldn't McFarlane's line be 7" instead of 6? I really wish they were cheaper but since they're the only ones monopolizing this market it seems like I don't really have a choice. Still I'm glad at least someone's doing it.
>>7602970>Too bad these figure are $90 a pop, when they should be near $75ish.Even less imo>>7602982>Yeah that's my one gripe about them. They're usually more expensive than other brands. complete team from various lines. ThisI'll just hope for SHF or wait for McFarlane DC line>>7602937Looks pretty good, I prefer black and grey/fully black color scheme for Batman.
>>7602928god im so excited for that. it looked really good from the last set of pics.
>>7602948it definitely would. if not, then it's the ultimate trolling because all of their batman figures have had wired capes so far.
>>7602992>I'm not sure but wouldn't McFarlane's line be 7" instead of 6?Most likely 7", sigh. But we've been waiting for good DC figures for so long, so I don't mind it too much.>I really wish they were cheaperThey're like 5$ more than ML
>>7602937OH BOY THE PERFECT SUPERMAN IT'S COMING
>>7602998>Most likely 7", sigh. But we've been waiting for good DC figures for so long, so I don't mind it too much.Yeah if this line is as good as their Fortnite one I guess it would still be good. It just really sucks that they won't fit current collections though. DC really needs a good 6" line. That market is wide open for anyone who wants to make a ton of money.>I really wish they were cheaper but since they're the only ones monopolizing this market it seems like I don't really have a choice. Still I'm glad at least someone's doing it.Sorry anon I was talking about Mafex with this line.>>7602999MUH DICK
>>7602489>>7602928Well that was quick, just woke up and I got my HLJ emails that my paypal was debited and it’s ready for shipment from private warehouse.How soon for chapter 2 John Wick?
>>7603002>Yeah if this line is as good as their Fortnite one I guess it would still be goodThey said they gonna apply the Fortnite articulation from now on to all their future releases. I still think they just need to improve the hips joints and they would be perfect.>Sorry anon I was talking about Mafex with this line.Oh, you didn't make it clear, I mean you immediately started to talk about it after the McFarlane question. It's alright.
Never thought I would see the day iron spidey shipped
>>7603009I collect MLs and I think the Fortnite articulation, based on reviews anyway, is a huge step up at least. I'm really reluctant to start another scale though. I guess I'll have to wait and see. Although they would be good for bigger characters like Darkseid, Mongol or Doomsday as those might fit. I'm really hoping for a Marvel Legends type of 6" line for DC so we can get a lot of characters with the main ones supplemented by Revo or Mafex. Hope that happens someday.
>>7603016>Marvel Legends type of 6" line for DCNODC deserves better after long suffering, plus ML have awful hip joints and in addition the new Fortnite as it already have better articulation. I just want my superheroes/supervillains to be able to do proper hick kicks and running pose.
>>7603018>>7603019I'm talking about the scale and the amount of products put out anon. No reason why whoever ends up making this can't improve the articulation. Even if McFarlane articulation is better, that scale will still keep a lot of buyers away from the line. An ML type for DC would actually be good too since it creates a competitor for MLs which would force them to improve. The technology is there. The only reason Hasbro doesn't improve is because they have no reason to. You can't get the less famous characters from imports so you have no choice but to buy theirs even if they're mostly only good for standing poses and would look terrible when you turn them to the side because of that waist swivel.
>>7603023>I'm talking about the scale and the amount of products put out anon.That's make sense and alright in my book.>that scale will still keep a lot of buyers away from the line. An ML type for DC would actually be good too since it creates a competitor for MLs which would force them to improveYou sort of see that with Jazwares 6" Fortnite, I fear it it kind of killed the hype for the McFarlane line. >The only reason Hasbro doesn't improve is because they have no reason to.Based, that's what happens when you buy out lots of good toy companies.
>>7603018>Fartnite receives amazing western toys>Fartnite playing zoomies don't care about toysPottery
>>7602937Oh. My. God. I need this. I need it so bad.
>>7603028Do you know who has the DC 6" license? I've seen the Jazwares one but people say that McFarlane is better and Jaz has bad QC or something? I don't collect Fortnite but that McFarlane review I watched with the pink female bear was really good that I would have bought it if it was 6".
>>7603033Imagine it anon. By the time you have this a comic accurate Superman would already be announced as well. Best Timeline.
>>7603037Literally the first thing I thought was "this means we can finally get a decent Superman".
>>7603053Im hoping that's what this means too anon. If you make a DC line you can't skip Supes.
>>7603036>Do you know who has the DC 6" license?Not exactly, I know Spinmaster got the (kids) boys action figure license.>I've seen the Jazwares one but people say that McFarlane is better and Jaz has bad QC or something?From what I heard is vice versa, few McFarlane figures suffers from QC issues, but it's not NECA level of epidemic.>>7603029Not really, the 4" inch got second wave.
>>7602937>blue an gray>no armor lines>trunksI'm not a huge fan of Jim Lee but if they're going to base their DC figures on his art, that's cool with me
>>7602959>Why does Revo keep on insisting on stylized versions?Because that's always been Yamaguchi's thing, even before they got western comic licenses. I'm honestly fine with it, I just wish they weren't seemingly limited to mostly modern era costumes. I love Yamaguchi's take on Cap, for instance, but I wish it was his classic costume.
>>7602937I was this close to buying a custom made 6in scale Hush suit from a customizer on Instagram, then I saw this.
>>7602937>April 2020 Why you got to hurt me like that Mafex?
>>7602996The justice league movie batman didn't have a wired cape
>>7603301I'm okay with a wait as long as it turns out good. Mezco's TDKR Batman has been my favorite figure for a while so I'm excited for another decent Batman figure that's directly based on an artist's style
>>7602937Glad I didn't fall for the Mezco cloth meme.
>>7602937Fuck me for buying the new mezco batman.
>>7602489Finally, i was getting worried already. Just paid for it.>>7602937Damn, i guess i know what i'll be pre-ordering in 2020.Now, iff they ever decide to release Keaton Batman (1992 less organic design), i'll be forever grateful.
>>7602937I expect they'll do a DKR Batman eventually. I hope they also make Year One.
>>7603302I guess it was because of the material they used.
>>7603087>not NECA level of epidemic.Which is not a thing at all. Especially in the last few years. Mcfarlane stuff breaks way, way, way more.
inb4 john wick gets delayed
>>7602937>the virgin batpajama vs THE CHAD KNIGHT
Mafex Alien delayed to the end of next month .__,
>>7604294A simple price to pay for iron spider to finally ship
>>7603488If they do make comic Batman variants, which would honestly be a license to print money and I couldn't blame them if they did, hopefully it's not until we get a decent selection of other characters. Like the rest of the league, some varied villains, and maybe some of the Batfam at least.
They really nailed the paint
>>7604598Love you bro, Jordan hive mind
>>7604558Fucking beautiful. I was worried they would STILL find some way to fuck it up at the last second, but that boy glittering like the sun itself.>>7604598>>7604599Shiiiit, I ain't even into sports but an iconic Bulls-era Jordan to fight with my Xenos and Preds seems nice.
>>7604598Now the real space jam begins
No tongue face.
Mafex is a blessing
Beeh taking a bunch of photos of Eva01 and aside from the foot on mine falling off, I just want to say, it's a pretty nice figure.
>>7602978I think they were silver in Hush. Both the pics floating around look like phone pics of Hobby Mag ads. I’m already thinking of painting a dark metallic gun metal colour.
>>7604928He kinda looks like Mafex's Spider-Man older brother, the faces are pretty alike
>>7604804hopefully they make fun guy. i’ll buy it just cause of the meme.
>>7604928Yep, I'm thinkin' this is the definitive Batman.
>>7604980100%. But the only competition is the Revo anyway.The vast majority of DC figures fucking blow because DC Collectibles sucks & Mattel sucks even more than that. It’s not like Marvel where Hasbro’s stuff is passable for the price.
>>7604558They always have to fuck something up dont they???? How hard is it to just improve on something?? What the fuck mafex.
>>7605028desu i was just gonna get a third party head for this
>>7604928Time to sell my Mezcos.
>>7604928I wonder if he'll have a fist with the Kryptonite ring
>>7605028Oh. Well. That's not good at all, is it?
>>7603744Until Mcfarlane gets a detailed video like NECA got, I am not buying it.
>>7604943>Beeh taking a bunch of photos of Eva01Why aren't you posting them, dang it?
>>7606519Because I wanted to process them a bit, I'll post in the new thread.
