Have you ever bought an expensive toy because of a viral marketing campaign?https://youtu.be/7CJEPkqN4LU
I feel like mezco becomes a worse company every year.
>A random high end figure from a poorly received and mostly forgotten movie from ten years agoWell it is an interesting license I guess but even as a huge fan of indie horror I don't really care.
>>10244138Basically my reaction, though I had to look up the film and was surprised it was 2013 and not a newer movie they were making product for.Such a weird choice, maybe someone who works there really likes it?
>>10244144Being extremely late on things is mezco's signature move.
>>10244144I imagine getting the license to make the figure was pretty cheap, that also could have played a role in it.
>>10244138I mean if they wanted to grab cheap-ass, forgotten horror licenses, I feel like 80s movies would be heaven for them and the designs and demand would both be better than for this one. I didn't even know any of this existed or even heard anyone ever talk about it. Compare that to 80s stuff that NECA refuses to make like Pumpkinhead or Basketcase or Leprechaun or C.H.U.D. Can't imagine they'd be much more expensive to license but they'd sell much more than this one
>>10244209Pumpkin head would be rad, I'd wager Charles Bronson from death wish could be affordable.
i think mezco conan is cool but the price is way too much for methat's all what i wanted to say
>>10244102lol holy shit I remember this being a viral thing on fucking Omegle and everyone thinking it was stupid back then.Mezco what the fuck? Where is Batman 89?
>>10244102This guy looks like he'd be a cool villain for the Gotham by Gaslight Batman. Like a proto-Talon/Court of Owls member
>>10244209That would be a better route to take. I know I would buy a Belial, Pumpkinhead or Leprechaun in a second and I don't even particularly like Mezco figurea. Hell, they could probably get a decent cut from the hipster market they like to cater to by doing more recent indie horror stuff. The Lighthouse, The Void, X/Pearl and the like have way more of a presence in the horror zeitgeist than the fucking Lord of Tears.
>>10244102Mezco has to be the laziest company out there right now.
>>10244106They have. It's a shame too. I have a pretty substantial Mezco collection but they haven't made anything compelling since Conan.
Don't buy Bigchap, it's shithttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQ5Ma4adxSg
>>10244433Lol even D-amazing had the limb "snapping back" issue with his figure's knee. He just glossed over it like it was nothing of course.
>>10244138>from the award-winning film
>>10244865Oh man I didn't notice that part. What fucking award?
>>10244412That beats Hasbro, for being the laziest and the greediest company out there right now.>>10244332I had a similar idea, in fact, I thought this character was one of their originals and would hang out with Vex and fight Atticus Doom and Doc Nocturnal. Cool design but Pumpkinhead, Killer Klowns, or even Candyman would be a gain they could net over NECA. Give me a Cronenberg Fly or Naked Lunch set.
>>10244922>CronenbergI would take back every negative thing I have ever said about Mezco if they made a Max Ren from Videodrome with a huge accessory load out. Naked Lunch would also be great.
>>10244942I don't know. Probably. Most out there filmmakers from around that era have kind of a stick in the mud attitude about that sort of thing. I don't really care though since I think it would look nice next to my Blu-Ray of the movie.
>>10244942Go ahead and ask David Lynch what he thinks about Twin Peaks Funko Pops.
>the attention whore pretending to be le mature manlololol
>>10244984McFarlane made a Fly figure in the 90s, so no. My point is that these pretentious film makers have somewhere down the line signed off on merchandise. You don't have to recede your hairline further to figure this out.
>>10244984Uh-oh. Anon, is mad that people are enjoying things. At any rate, no.
>>10245000Nobody is going to engage man. You are being way too ovious. Go scream about villains in the Revoltech thread or something.
>>10244942>>10244984Wow, Athena, two whole new sentences! You may just be able to become human, after all!>>10245000Oh... nevermind
>>10244433I wish companies wouldn't keep falling for the seamless meme, when has it ever actually worked and not resulted in a figure that tears apart in a year or two?
Yeah, preordered the FSB Bantha almost 3 years ago. Biggest mistake of my life.
>>10244102The guy who made the movie is a pretty cool guy, I've talked to him a little bit. Sold me a copy of LoT directly. I bet he's fucking over the moon about this. Good for him.I may consider ordering it.
>>10245000I know this is a really desperate plea for attention, given the reactions you've gotten in this thread. But it's like your reading level is far behind for someone who is nearing or at 40 years of age. Todd clearly takes the business where he can, look at his IP nets over the years. So no, he's not pretentious. I don't like onions, they are my least favorite topping for any occasion. You should either enroll in some online classes or take some medicine. Maybe call your parents and try to reconcile your relationship. Maybe they have made peace with you being a failure.
>>10245000'onion boy' GANTZ?!?
>>10245291>when has it ever actually worked and not resulted in a figure that tears apart in a year or two?I have a lot of seemless figures that are 10+ years old, some I got second hand. the caveat is that you can't pose them much, but that's another story.
Is the new Conan figure gonna have a new body like Death Dealer?
just paid 240AUD for a kintaro, its not even hot toys quality, or sideshow even, storm have the best movement ive seen from a figure though, but its not worth what they charge.shits just expensive now, i used to be able to get a cheap sideshow for 240AUD shipped 10 years ago, i was thinking about a clint eastwood figure from hot toys but its 700+ with shipping now, its the most basic hot toys figure ever and its worth that much, used to be around 350 10 years ago.
