What's the best way to store loose figures that don't have boxes? I was thinking of wrapping them up in tissues and try to put them in a box and putting the accessories in plastic bags.
What's a better alternative?
I'll be moving early next year and they need to be in storage.

To add to this: A way you can 'preserve' your collection is to put your toys in a freezer for 15-20 minutes every couple of months.

Plastic bags desu
>>
>>8594121
I never had brittleness... but the perspiration from the plastic did tighten some joints in old figs, and completely ruined the joins in others. some TMNT figs i pulled from storage have one tight leg, and one leg looser than a gi joe's elbow.

My love for lime is paralleled by only a few other colors. Mostly in the green family. But for this guy, lime is the best color.

>>8597833
My only issue with lime is that it's not always consistent. Some parts are darker and it can limit what you can do with it.
>>
>>8597843
Unfortunately, Lego prices are going up while the overall quality is on a steady decline; pretty fucking pathetic imo, I don't understand how they're okay with it

> absolutely loves lime green
I think we're polar opposites Anon, I absolutely despise it; the only good things to come out of lime green parts are your MOCs
>>
>>8598096
I think they have hit that point where they have pretty much guaranteed customers regardless of quality and the majority of new customers will never have experienced true quality lego, that's not an excuse, if it was my company I wouldn't let that shit slide, the most egregious example is the shitty printing quality, I know mercy has become a meme but I wouldn't have let that figure hit shelves until it was correct as advertised on all promotional material and the box
>>
>>8598106
Agreed 100%, my biggest gripe is parts cracking/splitting just from sitting on display, there's no reason that should be happening
I've had more parts crack and split over the past 4 yrs than I've ever had before that; I'm pretty sure it started around 2016, and ramped up in 2017 - now
Not sure when they opened their factory in China but it probably coincides with that

Let's settle it once and for all, anons. A question that has plagued toy since its inception. Are companies like Mafex, Figuarts, and Figma better than our boys in blue at Hasbro, McFarlane, etc? Their figures may have an edge, but is it really a big enough difference to justify the huge price spike? Discuss.

For the modern action figure market, which is the topic of this discussion, it absolutely is true.
>>
>>8595101
Not american, anon. Plus, I bought it.
>>
>>8595107
I mean, Japan produces a shit ton of toys; Figma, Mafex, and Figuarts are a drop in the bucket compared tot he sheer amount of vinyls and other figures available. even if you cut out the massive statue market in Japan it still leaves a ton of other figure lines with minimal articulation.

Just passing by. What's happening here? Necanon vs 1/18anon?
>>
Problem is with NECA Predators you have sooo out there so you might become a bit of a completionist. They were making Predator figs back when that Predators movie shit up the theaters. I have 3 from NECA myself: the Jungle Hunter Ult, the City Hunter Ult, and the Yellow Lantern Pred. That's it and that's all I want.

You do have the option of getting the McFarlane Predators. For awhile they were the finest Pred figs out there. Not bad for proto-NECA ones and there are much fewer of them.
>>
>>8594074
Nah, just means you got a lot of selection. And they're great figures, so you can just about pick any of the the ones that really strike your fancy and be good.
>>
>>8594072
Some random dude v subby. Necanon was here but he wasn't part of the battle.
>>
>>8594074
I'm seriously on the fence about my McFarlane Predators. They were the absolute best when they first came out - but the only competition was the Kenner line.

Do I try to sell them on eBay, or just throw them in the garbage?

Not a shitpost either, I'm honestly not sure if it's worth the effort of selling them, but I don't want them anymore. Garage sale and flea markets are not a thing where I am.

The feet arnt flat so it wobbles and sets off my ocd, the edges are all super fucking rough and i swear i could cut my self on its fingers, the plastic quality is shit and covered in little dents and blemishes, and the colors look way fucking better online then the actual figure.

>>8591280
Pretty much what >>8591285 said but I can redpill you on that model kit in particular. Unless I'm very much mistaken, that's the coating version of the Perfect Grade Evangelion, which is an absolute disaster of a kit. The base kit is awful due to being the original PG and coming out in the 90s when Bandai had a fetish for rubber- the armour plugs over a rubber suit that has to be stretched over the "skeleton". It can barely pose and is super fragile. But even worse, that version is pre-coated in paint, which will leave ugly scars where it's clipped off the frames.
Basically, don't do it.
>>
>>8591568
Are you talking about the kotobukiya kit, or is there another one now? I just finished my kit kit that I bought a few years back and feel to incompetent to paint it well myself.

How many more He-Man lines does anybody need or want? I swear there's a new one every few months. Wow it's the same mold....or a figure that looks like the same mold. Hey look this card is written in Spanish!! Fuck this shit, fuck Super7 for being lazy turds, and fuck the simps that still buy this garbage. On top of that, He-Man sucks.

Mainlines TFs are pretty simple you can pretty much transforms them by just looking at the box art. Studio Series movie figures are a bit more complicated and will probably need the guide to figure out why that one panel isn't snapping into place.

Why do you collect toys, lads? You're all lads, aren't you.
Do you care if anyone know about your collecting/playing or do you hide it?

Me: unhappy, neglected childhood marred by poverty and mental illness. Toys are a small world which I can comprehend and control.
No, I would not like anyone to know of my hobby. I hide toys in the are room if anyone comes to my home. Luckily my collection is manageable as I sell stuff I get sick of.

I remember I couldn't play with my toys anymore overnight and it was quite traumatic. Suddenly it didn't work anymore and it made me very sad. Yet I have never stopped wanting toys, I wish they would come back to life like when I was little. I also love looking for toys in garage sales and second-hand shops

1984
>NOW, THEREFORE, for one dollar and other good and valuable consideration, receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, TAKARA does hereby sell, assign, transfer and set over to HASBRO the entire right, title and interest to any copyrights on the DESIGNS for the United States of America, including the right to apply for, at its own expense, and own copyrights thereon in those countries for a term of three (3) years subject to the terms of the Agreement of November 1, 1983, at the conclusion of which, unless renewed for additional terms by mutual consent, HASBRO agrees to assign back to TAKARA, free of any charge, all of the rights assigned herein, including any copyrights covering said rights that may be issued. TAKARA agrees to sign, or cause to be signed, free of charge, any additional documents reasonably necessary to permit HASBRO to apply for and own copyrights covering the DESIGNS in the United States of America.
1985
>Please signify your agreement that Hasbro’s territory has now been expanded to the entire world, by signing and returning the enclosed copy of this letter to my attention.
2011, from when Takara bought Tomy(?), so this was just a reminder for the new company?
>For so long as Hasbro continues to pay the annual minimum royalty provided for in the Agreement, the Agreement will continue to be automatically renewed for additional successive one-year terms without any right of cancellation by either party (provided neither party has defaulted in the performance of the Agreement).

Claw machines are for kids. But since we are bragging about silly stuff here, i'll let you know as 11-12 year old i once won 9 stuffed animals in a 3 day ski vacation, with spending almost nothing. Got banned out of the arcade room. My sister's room was so occupied my mother forced us to give almost all of our plush collection. Even the ones we bought years before. I can post pics if you are interested. But again i repeat this is really silly and childish.

Only took one try to get a fairly big and high quality Izzy plush. For some reason I liked the ugly mascot back when it was on ads and the glut of marketing for the olympics at the time had me pumped for everything related to it. Pic semi related, not mine but just probably looked similar to it. I might still have the old thing in a box somewhere...
