why are korean toys so shitty and simplistic?
They put the budget into the plastic instead of ankle pivots
>>10724971It's for children
come at me faggot
>>10724971>>10725062 this. Look at Blitzway stuff, it's definitely on par if not better than japanese toys.
>>10724971As someome who enjoys chunky super robot toys from the 90s, I disagree with you. Korean toys remind me of Brave and that's a good thing.
>>10725414Probably because the guys who work on them are big brave fans themselves. The guys who work on the designs for GSCs THE GATTAI line, Godbrave Studio, mostly do work with these Korean lines.
>>10725506Tbf the Gattai line is pretty cheaply made material and engineering wise.
>>10724971I like those Korean sentai-imitator design more than any recent TV toku honestly. Both Sentai and Kamen Rider look ridiculous now.
>>10725600Any cool lines you recommend? I am shopping around for Christmas gifts and my kids are into power rangers megazords
>>10725600OP's design looks more like a Brave mecha, especially with the giant chest crest with wings overlapping the shoulders.
>>10725637The Sentai/PR stuff I grew up with also used chest crests a lot. I only casually know these Korean series but a lot of them seem to be Super Sentai based. I'm sure there's Brave in their DNA too, since Auldey used to import Brave as well. That said with Brave I usually think more like an animal theme mixed into vehicles(I know they're not all like that, but still)
>>10725600>I like those Korean sentai-imitator design more than any recent TV toku honestly.Agree with pic related as the only exception, Don Onitaijin is the best sentai robo toy since forever.
>>10725088To be fair that's due to shitty Zyuohger.
>>10725088>>10726255Seems to me that the designers were playing too much minecraft.
>>10725600>Both Sentai and Kamen Rider look ridiculous now.Oh come one thats horse shit, maybe if you last saw sentai during Zenkaiger but DonOnitaijin and KingOhger are fantastic.
>>10725652>>10726746Not a fan, sorry. It's before my time, but I always thought 80's Sentai had some of the best aesthetics. I tune out around the 2000's though. The visual noise is just too much for me.
>>10726911> I tune out around the 2000's though. The visual noise is just too much for me. You're trolling right? Timeranger - Boukenger wasn't visually noisy. Now Geki to Ryusoulger is pretty rough.
>>10724971Not simplistic anymore despite Tobot returning to Hyundais. Look at the new Tritan. It no longer has accessories, but its articulation and combination gimmick is its selling point.Also, anyone have the new Tritan just to do its infamous flexing pose? Well, he does do that pose again in his integration sequence.
>>10724971You obviously know nothing about Korean toys or you just have shit for taste.
those all look like shit
>>10724971That actually looks pretty sick. Reminds me of Brave mecha.I really like the Biklonz, but I totally missed getting them at a decent price.

>>10730388>From The Creators Who Watched J-Decker
>>10730422J-Decker? No they watched K-Cuphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TIrtJloLGc
>>10727724>>10727934Go back to your transformers who have shilled out the same characters and transformations for the last 39 years. We get it Optimus turns into a truck, oh how innovative and new.
>>10730386Man I want those transforming heads, but I don't want to spend $60 on a $25 toy.
>>10732581Everyone waits for the Chinese releases about 1 year later. they'll be like 20 shipped at most.
>>10727711>>10727714>>10727717Christ, those all just blend into eachother. Nothing stands out. Aesthetic headache
>>10733438>Christ, those all just blend into eachother. Nothing stands out. Aesthetic headacheLooks no different from having a bunch of sentai mechs together, atleast these are different colors.
can anyone provide me the legit aliexpress links for Metal Cardbot?the ones from this series looks kickass
>>10734875That’s just Dagwon lmao. They even fused the logo and jetmans logo.
>>10735101well of course, the designers team is called GODBRAVE STUDIO
>>10727711>>10727714>>10727717these all look nice, but they don't really pose nice. A lot of them at most lack swivel fore/arms and even cut-joint wrists. Doesn't help that the good ones are humanoid, which i feel already saturated by our access to Transformers. Also they expensive
>>10727711Not a fan of the other pics but this shelf is pretty solid. Back row is especially nice.
>>10727711>Volfog at home
>>10735147Ello captain shark
>>10730383>>10730388Which toyline is this from? Tobot? Hello Carbot?
>>10737112New season of Miniforce next year, it's that furry sentai franchise. Designs are also by God Brave studio.
Where is a good place to order this stuff? Amazon seemed overpriced.
>>10737202If you want the fresh virgin Korean releases then Gmarket. It's still expensive AF but the bots on Amazon are dropshipping from there anyway. Otherwise wait for >>10732998 then check Aliexpress.
>>10736969Tobot also had a Captain Shark homage called Captain Jack.>>10735147Ordered this guy. With Legacy Thundertron and a space pirate subline coming out for Transformers next year, I'm gonna make him their Space Pirate Ship.
>>10724971korea is like the intelligence gap between china and japan

https://twitter.com/toydevelop_samg/status/1724269816922735026Older tweet with the vehicle modes.
>>10741620There was always something about the previous miniforce combiners that just seemed messy to me, but fuck, this one is good. Really like the fact it has interaction with the trailer bot.
>>10742574Fuck, that's really good. I want that.
This guy is good, but needs more articulation yes.
>>10742735I am absolutely in love with everything about these two sets.
>>10742739The mini mode gimmick this line had was quite cute
>>10742887That one doesn't have the mini mode, it's a different version.
>>10743008How can you tell which one this one is?
>>10743014Because I own the original and can easily notice the lack of paint in some places, the hollowness under the front bumper and the robot head not being a separate "power up" piece.
>>10743263Oh, and also the black lance instead of gold and tiny fists. There's more differences but those are the easiest ones to spot.
>>10741620>>10735147>>10724971>God Brave Studio riding high at their new employer>Meanwhile Tobot has gone back to THISWas the Young Toys drama that bad?
>>10743263Where am I lacking paint? I just want to know if I can upgrade it or not.
>>10744174I posted this pic in the last Tobot thread. The gold on the hubcaps, the dark gray ion the legs, all the gold lines on the sides of the car and door handles, gold on the small lamps on top of the front wheels and the side-view mirrors, red on the elbow joints... That's what I'm seeing right now, but maybe there's more.
>>10744224Just saw that the gold on the wrists is missing too.
>>10744224Aah, I see, thank you, I'll consider adding a few of those details back in eventually.
