Red flag means on sale,purple is coming soon,green is ready to mold.#52toys #beastbox #megabox #oddcraft #saibooku22
Stryker, was eva variant dropped due to copyright?do you speak japanese?A brief history of yourself? Toys, designing, sofubiare you close to those guys that put this? It's pretty hard to find these little dudes.
I saw your twitter post, so my question is if there is a possibility of doing Monster from the Monster Hunter game? There was an old company called Matrix Monster that never finished. I would like to see these and would certainly spend a lot on them.
>>7450265do you have more of the concept art?
I want more dinosaurs. -Sauropod-Ankylosaur-Large Theropod (DIO REX)-PterosaurAnd a highly posable cat mold.-Tiger-Sabre Tooth tiger-Black Panther-Lioness-TabbyTons of variant colors possible.>>7448806>>7448829Also yes more halloween.
How can you tell if a seller on taobao is legit? I want to order some boxes but I don’t want to get scammed
I love that the hippos have 3mm to 5mm peg adapters, please give Dio someAlso I love the pink xenomorph. I hope we see crazy colours for all licenced BBs
>>7450327>tiger>saber tooth tiger>black panther>lioness>tabbyThat's five different feline designs. Are these into the sketch phase yet, or are they just possible future concepts?If you're looking for votes, I think the saber tooth tiger and the sauropod (brontosaurus or something like that) would be my picks for next concepts to see reality. I think the sauropod would be especially cute and fun.Can't wait to see what to see what's in the future, STRYKER!
>>7450365Usually you'd want to a seller with 5 diamonds or above (after 5 diamonds it's 1~5 crowns, just to confuse you) and/or see if there's legit reviews/photos on the product page itself. The thing is, Alipay holds your payment for 30 days or until you confirm receipt. It's easy to get a refund during this period. If the seller does not dispatch within 2~3 days or otherwise stated, abort. If the package is not at your forwarder's warehouse within a week of dispatch, abort. You get the idea.
>>7450379Just a wish list because I like robot cats.Hippo, rhino, gorilla, they're neat but I don't want them
I wouldn't mind more bugs. Beebox when?
Who do I have to blow to get some beast box transparent storage boxes for my dios from a USA based retailer
>>7450455Bugs would be cool! I know I’m looking forward to the spider.
>>7450498Said they would be added to the Amazon store. So I'd just hold out. Once they are available we'll mention it.
>>7450212Consider. The thread hadn't even been pushed off the catalog yet. Its in bad taste to act like he offered an AMA, when all he ever said was that he was listening. Delete thread, wait for old thread to actually archive, be respectful and keep things lowkey. This is overboard.
>>7450327We're getting a Saber Toothed Tiger.>>7450379Reading comprehension.
The Penguins are available on AmiAmi RIGHT NOW. Also they have new pre-orders for the storage boxes and our beautiful bird boy.
>>7450327Yes on the dinosaurs. Yes on the sabertooth. Definitely glad to see this line is picking up, chances are we'll get to see this stuff come to fruition some day.
>>7450554I have no idea what ama is and at this point I'm afraid to ask.
>>7450668Limit 12 clear boxes wtf.
>>7450914What, do you think China is just made of plastic?
>>7450914Buy ones in other colors and mix it up, dude. I can assure you things are limited on Tmall as well. Had to get some blues as the clears were out for a bit. Everything will be daijoubu.>>7450911Ask Me Anything. Which he never said.
>>7450554>>7450968OP here. I don't view it as disrespectful but rather as a joke. Either way we don't have any bad intentions. Let's just have fun here.
>>7451139Seemed more of a declaration than a joke.
>>7451143I digress then.
The Dio gang checking out the new arrivals!
>>7451340Looks like they've been accepted.
>>7451342nice ritual. how about other types?
>>7451416Hoping to take some more fun pictures this weekend. I got my diaclone dudes and they fit in really well. Mint Dio should also be finding its way to me by tomorrow.
>>7450282Not that anon, but I have a pic of one of their completed ones.>>7450327Yes on more dinosaurs. Personally, I'd also like to see a dragon or wyvern.
>>7450327My favorites are the Dinosaurs and Ice Age Mammals, but then I'm always surprised by how appealing the modern animals end up being. I'm pretty ecstatic that we are getting a tough, predatory looking Saber Tooth Tiger. Moving into insect and marine life has me more than a little excited at the possibilities. Not to mention that being able to build up a collection of silly weapons and accessories to share between beastboxes is a big jump in overall play factor. If I could make a wishlist it'd probably look something like this. >Stegosaurus >Tyrannosaurus>Mantis>Scorpion>Hammerhead Shark>Crocodile>Turtle>Wolf>BatIn no particular order.
>>7451525>TyrannosaurusSee I always felt Dio was more T-Rex than raptor. Can't see how they'd make a T-Rex model that much different than our current raptor model. I'd say something like a Spinosaurus would be better. Could be similar size too to really get that even rivalry feel going on.>>7451488Wish there were more things like this one. I think beast box could capitalize on bigger boxes like this guy every now and then.
>>7451488That's just a Dio with wings
>>7451714To be fair, Matrix Monster cane out a coupke years before BeastBox, so Dio is just Fiery Dragon without wings.
>>7451788The real difference is that Matrix Monster went nowhere, and Beastbox did.
I still have my Matrix monster. They are like 4 times bigger than Dio. I would pick up larger versions of Dio if they made them. Like a 6 inch version..
I know a while back they were considering making the Whale Beastbox big enough to house an actual Jojo, but were potentially concerned at that being something that their customers wouldn't support price wise. So I'd like to propose a question here to others in the thread: Would you be interested in larger beastboxes with a heavier price tag?Personally, I would be so long as it was an animal or design that deserved such a treatment. A massive Brachiosaurus. A huge DIO REX. The whale. Especially if they added in clever features maybe like the box form being 4 box charges wide and tall so it could still clip into a formation of boxes and become part of the structure. Or if it could even carry box chargers or other beast boxes. Imagine a big queen ant or queen bee with 2 or 3 normal beastboxes sized soldiers/workers that form up with it to make a bigger box.
>>7452115Like I said in >>7451710 I would be totally about it. And I agree, it would need to make sense as for why it's so big and not just "hey it's moma but bigger". I think a dragon similar to the matrix monster could work, the brachiosaurus idea would be top notch given it commemorates the prehistoric start to the line. Queen bee/ant is interested (more so bee than ant). Like I said the line is ramping up so it hopefully is only a matter of time before we see a new "uber box" edition.
>>7452115Legendary and fantasy animals would make cool large-form beastboxes. A big dragon, huge leviathan, or hell just some kaiju. A giant giant squid would be fun to have, especially to fight a whale.
Having some fun with the Diaclone stuff. Dio is the canine unit of the future. Loyal and capable of chomping a car in half. Can't get better than that.
>>7452546To protect and serve.
Out of commission.
>>7452115If the whale had been a huge aircraft carrier style thing with a flat deck up top for other Beastboxes to stand on, a fully detailed cockpit inside its mouth, unfolding panels with weapons and hidden compartments for storage...fuck, it would have been the toy of my dreams.
>>7452546that's lost planet mech?>>7452115idm large beast if we're able to engineer it out
>>7453012Yes, lost planet SAT. Basically SWAT mechs.
Looks like they're getting quite popular. Cheers!
>>7453152I saw that earlier, too. Fantastic to see them selling well.
>>7452115No...make them smaller. They should work their way from (5 cm)^3 to (1 cm)^3 to (5 mm)^3.
>>7452115No it's already 35 cad for one Jojo sized guy
>>7451139How the fuck does your thread count as a ‘joke’. You literally sound like the retards who yell I was only pretending to be retarded.
>>7453277He's obviously not going to delete it and start again, so we may as well just try and move past it and be positive. >>7453263Move to China with me, bro. We'll get all the toys.
I ordered my Mint Dio what feels like ages ago and USPS keeps delaying it. How much longer must I wait?
>>7453277>>7453651Ya, i'm not bothered to. Do it on the next.
Anyone else manage to order the Penguins while they were up? Mine just shipped out from AmiAmi, so the fun of waiting for them begins. If there is any snow left outside by then, I might take them outside for some pictures.
>>7453651Yeah I'd rather not go that fucking shithole.
>>7453277Try being more of a dick about it. I'm sure that will help.
>want to get sakawaii dio>but it's scented, which fades, and the relative impermanence of a feature bothers meI think I'm legitimately autisticAt least I can get the macaw, fucking love macaws
>>7454901Mine still smells like the beads 2 years later. Just take the plunge.
>>7454901The smell isn't very pronounced when you open it and it still isn't very pronounced a year later. It doesn't fade significantly because it wasn't much of a scent in the first place. It's a nice colorway, I'd go ahead and pick it up.
>>7454935>>7454925It's not even the smell itself it's the conceptI mean I'll get it for sure, but I'm still horribly autistic.
>>7454901Smells fade, plastic degrades, rubber rots. Everything is transient, anon.Just enjoy your toys.
>>7454590I'm a dumbass and PO'd on BBTS because hlj didn't carry them and I didn't want to pay ems twice in a month. Oh well, gonna be spring penguins.
>>7455067Lets see some pictures of beastbox collections! Whether you have ond DIO or you've gone totally overboard, snap off a quick picture and share! How do you store/display your boxes? Do you leave them out and transformed, or stashed away?
>>7455156I only have these, but have had them since they first became available. I used to have Ghostdog, but the purple variant replaced him. Thinking really hard about buying the camo Dio, but I haven't seen any pics in these threads yet.
>>7455174I have the Camo DIO on the way right now so I'll be sure to take a few pictures. A really cool thing about the Camo is that none of them are identical. If you look at different pictures of them online, you can see that all of them have their own pattern.
>>7453152Dio is now in 2nd
Anyone know where I can find this gorilla boy? Been searching the usual suspects, but no dice
>>7456018Wow, looks like he is sold out everywhere. A lot of the old stuff has been getting more and more scarce.
>>7456374I think I remember seeing him on tmall even after CNY.
>>7456018I was scratching my head because I literally just ordered this one on amazon yesterday, but sure enough it's sold out. Guess I got one of the last ones, sorry.
>>7456379Just checked Tmall and couldn't find it. Checked Ebay, Amazon, BBTs, Amiami, HLJ to see if I could help a dude out. Found nothing. Its kinda cool to see stuff vanishing as it means people's current collections will be more unique going into the future, but it sucks for people who miss out. If there is something you've been eyeing in the line for a long time and you weren't sure if you should go for it or not, now might be the time.
>>7456374>>7456379>>7456441Damn, thanks anyway guys. Was wanting to buy my first BBReally sucks cause it’s the only deco of the mold that’s appealing to me. Hopefully it’ll pop up somewhere along the line
>>7456018Is this the closest we will get to real gorilla colors
>>7456474G-core Jojo is pretty similar. Just like Dio though, Jojo is nowhere near done. Stryker has said they are his favorites and they are getting new 1.5 molds that allow for customization and accessories. Aside from doing a 1.5 version in the original colors for both, he intends for all the subsequent colorways to be totally original and not just repeats. So there is no telling what sort of color options we may get in the future.
The grey and green jojo looks cool, I like his visor and tiny keyboard
>>7456613Yeah, but G-core is even more impossible to find
>>7456623He's a good boy.
>>7456631It seems like people in the thread are getting more and more adept at learning how to use the Tmall shop. In the future when more cool colorways drop it should be much easier for people to grab them up.
>>7456631i just saw it on taobao like yesterday
>>7456657Speaking of which, how long does it take for something to ship after it leaves the mainland? Paid for my forwarding shipping and it said it was leaving the operations center but no word yet since the 16th. So unless it's just on a big ship that's taking forever to cross the pacific I'm confused as to why I haven't heard anything yet.
>>7456965Tracking is always weird on that stuff. For example just this month I had two packages come from China where the tracking was days and days behind its actual progress until they showed up totally unexpectedly and still didn't show as delivered for days afterward. Try not to sweat it too much.
>>7450227EVA colorway,actually,we've tried to get the copyright,but obviously only a color homage is not big enough as a business.So we dropped it
>>7456965You mean from Taobao/Tmall? They only have air freight to the USA. After you pay for forwarding, it usually takes like 3~5 business days to dispatch from the warehouse and clear the chinese customs. Actual trip is <24 hours since it's by air. After that it depends on your customs and last-mile courier, not in burgerland so idk.
>>7450227Terracotta warriors also my product,designed by our sub-group Saibooku22
>>7455183I need to know if the camo pattern is printed or molded?
>>7457604I guess want is correct word, it looks like it may be overmolded which would be very cool.
>>7457603Water Transfer Printing :) google the videos
>>7457473Thats interesting. You need the license just to be able to use those colors? That seems pretty intense if you can literally copyright the combination of just a few colors. Otherwise, I'm sure just the colors even without an official tie-in would be a huge hit.
>>7457587This is totally out of nowhere and just for fun, but would you ever consider contacting the Cavico people and see about doing some sort of collaboration? They seem to be all about collaborating with other creators. A few sprues of tiny robot animals in the beastbox style that are compatible with the new pegs would be really neat.
>>7457649That time we just a small brand,we wish can collaborate with big company and we don't want to do anything make them dislike us,so we'd rather change the color to avoid the risk.But yes,acutally color combination is not a part of copyright.Like we did Flame JoJo :)So,maybe we can reconsider the color again.
>>7457650Yes I talked with them at WonFes2019 winter and sent them some sample,but no reply so far.
>>7457661I thought that might be the reason. The brand has done a great job securing licenses. I think a lot of us were surprised with Alien at first, but now going into Predator, Getter Robo, Marvel. With a little luck you may even just be able to make a straight up EVA 01 Megabox. I'd go nuts for a Godzilla or Mechagodzilla done in the Mega/Beastbox style. That would be a dream toy.
>>7457682Sorry I don't know.....I just know Cavico and other designers all followed each other on twitter so they are friends :)
I will continue to dream of clear green DIO that smells like pine air freshener.
>>7457667>Eva and Godzilla Why do you have to make me need things that will probably never happen
>>7457833How do you think I feel? I'd love to see how the spines would work on a robot version.
>>7457702I just love the clear Dios in general. Pine-scented green, citrus-scented orange, lavender-scented purple, they could make a whole squad of scented Dios and I’d be the first to buy them.
>>7457587I didn't know that... Any idea where can I still buy the green variant in asia?>>7457661Thank you! we can easily buy the eva 1 -3 set colors.
>>7457473>>7457587>>7457613>>7457661>>7457665Can't wait for my penguins to show up. Were you surprised at the huge appeal the penguins have had? Almost every person I've shown them to has wanted them. I'm also curious if Moma and Delta might get 1.5 versions so that they can mount accessories?
>>7458385God damn i want that purple and grey ghostdog
>>7458439He's a good one.
>>7458385I am only slightly salty that I preordered the penguins at amiami for 2700 yen, and then the day they asked for my payment, dropped them down to 2400 yen. Still looking forward to those little shits.
>>7458528Oh man, didn't even realize that. Regardless, just happy they are on the way. I can't wait to play around with the magnets.
>>7458942So many birds
>>7458492The standard blue/yellow one has 1 on it and this is apparently 3, so what was 2?
>>7458942actual footage of peruvian jungle
>>7458942I like the one at the top just looking up like, "Psst, give me the crackers.">>7458974Someday we'll figure it out and it shall be revealed. Wonder if Ghostdog head will get put on the 1.5 body. Hope so.
>>7458942I think its most important to focus on new designs and products, but will you continue to create fun new colors for all the existing molds as things continue? Also, Clear Plastic ICEQUBE with blue frosting to hide the worst glue and the magnets. Then it can be a real ice cube.
>>7458942Would you happen to know if the green and white Deltas going back up for sale anytime soon? I'm trying to get one for my daughter. She has the other three and loves them, but I can't find that one anywhere.
>>7459492It might have been a 1 run and done. A lot of the Tmall stuff seems to be that way. I'll keep an eye out for you dude. I'm also watching for the Wartale Jojo for that dude earlier who was looking for one.
>>7459492A lot of the war tale stuff seems to be very limited edition, so at this point it's best to grab them while you can. Recently ordered one off of TMall and after paying for the forwarding shipping I got news of it for about a day or two before radio silence on its whereabouts. Really hoping this one wasn't going to get lost in the mail because like you see, it's no longer available and as such I won't be able to get it again.
>>7460095Same thing happened to me. Then after a few days it finally updated. I wouldn't worry unless a week or two of zero updates has occurred. If you're using SAL or RSAL though, I'd make it 3 weeks.
>>7460049Jojo dude here. Thanks man, will keep you guys posted if I find anything as well
>>7460095This is a good point. I feel like the line is getting more and more popular as it continues to put out figures and draw attention. The penguins and parrot seem to be getting a lot of attention, then people go and snatch stuff up. If there is stuff you're interested in and its available right now, considering going for it. Opportunities to get some of these little guys are drying up. >>7458528If it helps they didn't actually drop them to 2400 yen, they're just selling some with damaged boxes and stuff at that cost.
>>7458528>300 yenyou are like a little baby>tempted by frame arms girl bd with gourai kai>70 dollary doos though>bite the bullet and get it since price isn't going down>next week basically aftermarket price is sliced in half
>>7460297I always hate when that happens. Always rough as a collector. Think you're gonna miss out if you don't act now, spend a bunch of cash, reissue or something makes the price you paid totally ridiculous. Or the reverse, you expect a reissue or that it wont jump up much in price and them WHAM.
>>7459492Sorry that's one-time crossover collaboration we will not reissue it.
>>7460393Do you have an ETA on when we can get the newer models on sites like Amazon? Or if the models aren't on the sites by now we better go through other sites to get the boxes we want?
Just got my Alien in and I absolutely love her. Kind of a pain to transform into a box, but it's also really impressive at the same time. I'm sure it'll get easier the more I do it.Only real complaint with it is that the transformation seems prone to scratching her up. There's already a nasty scratch on her chin, but it's possible that I'm just an idiot that was too rough. Still, this is a really fucking awesome toy, and doubly so with the extras it comes with.
>>7460454Its the hardest transformation by a huge margin. I wonder if the Queen will take the cake though with how they managed to pack her into the same sized cube but she appears much bigger. Glad you're enjoying it so much! I hope those pink, yellow and red Aliens materialize so I can make a weird multi-color hive. >>7460421I'm curious about this as well. I don't think the Hippo or Rhino ever appeared on Amazon. Might just be that Amazon is a much lower priority than distributing to say BigBadToystore? But then again it seems like the Amazon store is all direct sales, which would mean they get to keep a lot more of the profit than what they would get selling through other online retail. I'm totally in the dark desu. Thank God I learned how to use Tmall/Taobao so I could just get things directly. Shocked at how fast it was to get over here as well. Made my order this last weekend and its on track for delivery by Monday.
>>7460489>PredatorOh shit, I forgot about him.
>>7460506He has a removable mask and a little cyborg spine.
>>7460489How'd you figure out Taobao? Is there a good guide anywhere or did you just stumble around until you got it?
>>7460393hope these future limited ones will be available on amazon. even if it's in small quantity, i'm sure people will be happy to buy it all.
>>7460914Google translate is a big help. Its about 80% accurate or so. Spend a little time checking some stuff out and you can make use of Taobao/Tmall without middlemen fees. Its pretty fast and fantastic so far.Check out the Taobao General for links and tons of info: >>>/cgl/10081861 >>7460934He answered that adding the exclusives to amazon wasn't likely because of limited production amounts. At least that was the meaning I took from it.
>>7460937Wait, so just to get this straight, I don't need a middleman anymore? I can shop straight from there just like Aliexpress?
>>7460950Thats what I just did, but I live in the US so mileage may vary to where Taobao's warehouses will ship out to. Basically they just do it for you. They get the package, you tell them to send it to you, pay shipping for that and its done. Was cheaper than the middlemen I was using and faster to boot. Like I said I ordered last weekend and its already in the US and on track to be here Monday.
>>7460950You still need a middleman/forwarder, but there are now official no-frills ones for certain countries (CAN USA SG MY TW HK AUS NZ), you'll be automatically given the selection to use these forwarders when you input an address in these regions. The goods will be sent to their warehouse and you'll need to consolidate and forward your stuff. All this is done through world.taobao.com so that makes it convenient and cheap. The consolidation service is important because most forwarders charge on 1st kg basis, and Beast Boxes are like 200gm each...The 3rd party forwarders are still relevant because they ship to everywhere else and provide services like checking and translation.
tl;dr - there's official forwarders working with taobao and 3rd party forwarders.As for limited production, perhaps increase the amount for overseas market? though I do not know how much is the moq.
>>7460049>>7460393Well, shit. Guess thats what I get for not keeping up on things for 6 months. Oh well, i'll keep looking out for a reseller. Thanks for the info STRYKER.
found some old Dio pics.
>>7461001Anyone can learn to use Taobao/Tmall and never miss out on an exclusive again. Its a lot easier than getting exclusive stuff from other lines I collect. And cheaper. Thanks Bandai. I wonder what will be the first of the new Beastboxes to be released after Echo? The Whale, Spider, Lobster, Sabertooth, or Bear? I'd like to add an Octopus to my list of potential beastbox designs. I think the arms could be really fun for a transformation and there are tons of color options.
>>7461259>Thanks Bandai.Unoe, some p-bandai goods are making their way to their official Tmall shop...
>>7450212I hate this line. I can't imagine how much I spent trying to collect every single one. Somebody help me, I can't stop collecting them.
>>7461264I've mostly been collecting the A.N.I.M.E. Gundams from Tamashii, so if their exclusives start showing up on Tmall I might have to keep an eye out.
>>7461277Not counting Megabox stuff, I think I'm missing 3 exclusives and it kills me. The almost totally white designer con DIO. The obnoxiously blue and red one, and the green one that is basically a holy grail for me. Relatively cheap, combined with tons of colorways, great designs, a satisfying transformation gimmick, limited availabilities to chase and perfect storage makes these little guys insanely appealing to collect. I feel your pain but I can't stop.
>>7461286They are there but Taobao/Tmall has a shitty pre-order system (or lack of one) so I'm not sure about using it for 200 dollar exclusives.
>>7461298Tmall doesn't have pre-orders? That seems like a pain. Thanks for the info though! The Beastbox thread is always so friendly.
>>7461339It doesn't really have a system, but shops there use workarounds for POs. Incidentally the two relevant tmall shops here have the most common PO methods:52toys requires full payment but they set the dispatch time to something really long, like 90 days. Bandai China requires you pay a deposit on the pre-order listing, then wait for them to put up a balance listing when the item is released. Different shops have different ways of notifying you of their releases, but it usually involves some chinese msg app, like WeChat, QQ or AliWangWang.
>>7461348Seems like such a basic thing to have working that I'm surprised, but its clever how people have found ways to work around it.
>>7461339Holy fuck I want that ghostdog
>>7461259I hope it’s the bear. He would instantly jump to the top of my list of ones to buy
>>7461544He's my favorite DIO.
>>7461298>100 yen/$1 p-bandai MG>$.50 HG and addon kitcall me retarded but the fuck is goin on here?
>>7461597>make dio with grump eyebrows>then take out the eyesspooky puppy but with dio eyes when?
>>7462088Chinese Yuan, not Japanese Yen. Right now Yuan is 0.15 to 1 USD, and if it's deposits like >>7461348 mentioned those prices make sense.
>>7462099I mean that'd still be super low, but yeah deposits to PO makes sense
>>7462094 >EyebrowsThems horns.
>>7462118well fuck, I thought it was a brow ridge
>>7462118All this time I thought ghostdog was the carnotarus to dio's T-Rex, but now that we know dio's a raptor I don't know what to believe anymore.
>>7462131He can be a raptor once he gets a foot claw. He can't be a raptor until then.
>>7462126D10 or DIO is a succesful beastbox design that works properly and assumedly has a functioning AI. D09(Dog) or Ghostdog was a prototype that wasn't fully functional and was thought inferior to D10. So D09 has a grudge against D10. Its sort've a Protoman and Megaman kind of deal I think. So D09 has a more primitive and less expressive head than D10, but is probably tougher.Deepest lore.
Rhino is up on Amazon now. I don't think that it was before? Hippo might be on soon too.
Playing around with colors again. Its a blast to imagine different colorways. Eva 01 Delta.
>>7462345Missing something, but I'd probably buy it.>>7462334This is just straight up barney.
>>7462369I'm fine with that.
>>7462179Jesus that is some lore
>>7462118What's that version of Dio called? I want one
>>7463330Ghostdog. This particular coloration is no longer in production however.
>>7463379what's the colorway called
>>7463381Metal Wartale Ghostdog I think? Like the man said, its been sold out for a long time.
>>7459492>green and white DeltaWhich one is that
>>7463432Another discontinued war tale variant.
>>7463432This one. He's great.
Looking for some advice from the Taobao users in this thread. I'm trying to hunt down exclusives and other stuff, any ideas what I should be searching for to get the best results for beastboxes?
>>7458492Just bought this on eBay today
>>7463649fuck you where
>>7463649>>7463651Looks like just some random collector. Not selling any other beastboxes just some transformers. Was already opened but $33.50 shipped (not including tax) is a pretty great price at this point. Congrats! Let us know how much you like it.
>>7463560Beast box = 猛兽匣Limited = 限定"52toys" and "Beast box" work as well.Read the listings carefully because some are preorder listings see >>7461348
It feels REALLY weird ordering direct from china on purpose. They're legit sellers of course, but like, years of conditioning to avoid bootlegs are hard to get over
>>7463811You can get KOs and Ripoffs at the same place too, it's convenient
Hoping to take pictures of some more arrivals on Monday or thereabouts. Have the Hippo, Rhino, Penguins, Camo Dio/Jojo and my last 2 knock-offs on the way all at around the same couple days. Going to try and set up some fun pictures with the whole lot of them out of their boxes. Should be a lot of fun, even if transforming them all will take forever. Picture is almost current but missing 2 of the exclusives I grabbed up and the Mint Dio.>>7463811Feels weird but also... good.>>7463815Found a ton of crazy and interesting things just browsing around so far. Its like the Chinese took it as a challenge to make some of their knock-offs better than the actual products. Some of this stuff is rad as hell.
>>7463492If only 52toys can release a boxset/giftset edition beastboxes of all the Metal Wartale version.
>>7463400where do I get all these concept pics?
>>7463815that anon who is curious of your mech toys again. do you have mugen & mugenbine series?
>>7463893Eh I see your point but at the same time doesn't really seem super fair to the people who got these limited edition variants while they were available you know?
>>7463400I look around a lot. Twitter, Instagram and lots of retailers. I think I found that just in a Taobao shop's listing for the figure.
>>7464065mind doing a dump?
>>7463951Basically. I'll always be forever booty blasted that I'll never get the Beijing Comic Con Dio, but its not really fair to the people who tracked it down for it to just be reissued. My advice to people who aren't interested in scouring the internet or paying high aftermarket on lots of colorways, is just to look to the future. There will be tons more interesting colors and exclusives to go after, and they'll be at base prices.
>>7464995Sure, I have a couple more little things people may or may not have seen before.
>>7465042>CPU>B gigahertzThat's one way to find out never have it be out of date!
>>7465071I hear Moma can even run Crysis.
>>7465042cool! I'll check back later when you've dump it all
And with that I'm basically dry. I'll look around and see if I find any other cool art or promotional stuff. Maybe some people in the thread have some unique stuff to share.
I love getting pictures from my middleman
>>7466057I feel ya.
I wonder if the Queen, Alien Colorways, and the Predator are on track for a release this year?
>>7456441Amazon don't play, wartale jojo showed up in like 5 days. Mine has a really floppy elbow, but I can probably do something about that. He's a lot better than I was expecting, considering he was the last mold I hadn't gotten one of yet.
Promised I would take some pictures of my full Beastbox collection with them all transformed a while back. I finally got the most recent figures in so decided to just go for it today. >>7467857Thats really fast! Glad you enjoy him, he's one of the best for sure. Might be one of the last ones readily out there too.
>hesitated>ponkasaur, and all the storage units' PO sold out on amicoeh fug, it really means nothing though since they always have separate on release stock but still
>>7467985that's one heck of a collection!
My trash bootlegs arrived today and they lived up to all the negative comments that first anon posted and then some. Total junk. Most surfaces are kind of glossy and scratched up vs the matte of the real Dios. Nubs everywhere that would trigger the Gunpla thread hard, some sharp enough to cut myself with. They fall apart when transforming but still some bits are such a tight fit that I destroyed a number of pieces seeing how it all came apart. I took a drill to one set of eyes to figure out how they lock the two main head pieces together, those would be super hard to extract without sacrificing something for sure. Only one of of four ankles extends more than a millimeter so I gave up on that feature. I at least managed to save the right pieces to part-swap the color scheme I wanted, but the blue one was missing the back of the head so it's not even complete. Definitely a case of getting what you pay for.All that said, the construction is pretty neat and this would be a great little model kit, which would make it super easy to customize. I doubt that'll ever happen but if it did I'd throw money at it in a heartbeat.
>>7468163Thanks! I love collecting these little guys. Having the Rhino and Hippo in hand they are pretty great and add some fun to the line for sure. Penguins are absolutely incredible though. 10/10.>>7468220Glad you were able to assemble it with the other pieces. My plan is to take them apart and try something similar. I might start by sanding a bunch of the horrific nubs off and possibly using something to loosen these incredibly tight joints a bit. Transforming one of my blue knock-offs is an exercise in total finger destruction. I'd like to try taking all the black parts from the yellow Knock-off (if it ever shows up) and mixing them with the pink parts to make a pink and black DIO with a punk vibe. I'm sure we'll both have cancer soon from the medical waste used in the plastic for these bootlegs.
Is there any consideration to making a scaled up Dio with more detail? Like 2 or 3 times the size?I would absolutely buy the heck out of a big Dio
>>7468248I think there is actually. There was some mention of a possibility of doing a more obvious T-rex, which I assume would at least be scaled to fit into the box chargers natively and would basically be bigger, possibly tougher looking DIOs. Dio is already really tall, so a scaled up version would tower over the Beastbox kingdom properly.
>tfw you're not old enough to play with beastbox figures
>>7468663This just proves beastbox is a mature toyline meant for Civil War Veterans.
Got my fav Dio on eBay for 30$. Was super excited to have this guy added to my little collection.
>>7469353Starting a small police unit I see. Be sure to get SWAT Rhino down the line.
>>7469353Ugh i'm jealous of you anon. Wartale Ghostdog is probably my most wanted colorway
>>7469441Stick with the thread. People are on the look out for one another in here. With any luck you'll find one.
>>7469353>>7469610I feel so lucky that I already checked this one off my list. Wartale Ghostdog is my favorite Dio as well.
>>7469860I gotta lot of Dios and its still my favorite as well. Has perfect colors. I know its based off some mobile game or something, but the colors remind me of the G3 Gundam. He even has a 3 on him.
>>7471318Won't ask for unreasonable details but just curious. Are the alternate Alien colors (Red, Pink, Powerloader) still on the way or is licensing in the way? Same for the Predator. Just curious. I'm sure the Iron Man is way higher on your priorities list for Megabox with the movie on the way.
>>7456018>7456018Just ordered this one of amazon, apparently it's back in stock? Was actually looking for other boy (pic related) but kind of gave up on finding him...
>>7471498He’s on taobao I’m pretty sure
>>7471589Well I'll be... Sure enough, I find another listing. I've looked before, but the listings I found were sold out. I'm cancelling my amz order.
>>7471498>>7471589>>7471674Good news for some people here!
I made a photo collage including some shots of the KO Dios I got a few days ago (I added the panel-lining) and an adventure with Rockman Volnutt.
>>7472067Guess I'll post the image, while I'm at it.
>>7472068Love it. Beastboxes fit right in with Megaman aesthetics. I might take some shots with my D-arts or Nendo megaman.
>>7471498Original gorilla anon here. Hell yeah! Thanks man!Glad you were able to find the one you were looking for too
Robot kingdom now has computer wizard jojo on their site but that’s it. Maybe they’re testing the waters?
Trying to talk myself out of paying a nearly 20x upmark for a rare Beastbox figure. Its totally ridiculous, but there is a lot of appeal to completing more of the collection.
>>7472963pass it to me then.
>>7472963>>7473016For real anon, we can help you out by buying them away from you and keeping your wallet safe
Got my Getter today! If that anon is still around: I guess mine arrived the soonest. So much cute!
>>7473978Congrats! How great is it? Also, sweet looking room in the background.
>>7473999It's pretty great! The transformation is fun but not fiddly. I don't want to o give too many details, and I don't want to shit up the thread with photos. I'll put together a collage like I did with the Dios or at least an imgur gallery.
>>7474012https://imgur.com/a/YPK0uKCOkay, here's the imgur gallery. I did it from my phone, so they are in reverse order. Have a look if you're curious.
>>7474017He looks pretty good. I'm planning on getting Black Getter myself, but I figure they're close enough to get a good clue as to what he'll be like.
>>7474017I don't think anyone would consider it "shitting up the thread" but thanks for the galler! Looks great and seems pretty poseable too.
I had Getty on my desk at work, so I set up this scene on my lunch break. Even Getty fears the creeper!
>>7474692For the record, he's not meant to be doing that "dab" thing (I think I'll never understand that). It's just meant to be a "Gadzooks!" pose.
>>7474692He can dab, but can he floss?
>>7474692What are the other blocks? They look like puzzles of some kind.
>>7473999>sweet looking roomThanks! It's mostly my girlfriend's books. We decorate library style.>>7474873>floss?I don't think so. No teeth.>>7475014>the other blocksThey're They're an "antistress" fidgety thing. Way better (and less aspie) than a spinner. If you go to AliExpress and search the words "infinity cube stress" you'll get a plethora of options. I collected a few, and I've found that they look good as extra pieces in photo compositions.
>>7475051You truly are a pure being and I appreciate you. >>7474692Now I want puzzle/fidget boxes
>>7475051chop that tree
Inside a store that carries Beastbox in Beijing.Pretty proud of them. When I was here a year ago, the store had only two lonely Beastboxes on the shelf and no special displays at all, and that was when Sakura already came out.Went home with a Xeno and the penguins.
>>7456965Update as of today/yesterday, refund period on Taobao expired (because I was stupid and didn't realize you had to pay forwarding shipping until 10-12 days before the refund expiration date) and still no update since the 16th. Should I give up on it coming in or still hold out hope? Was my second all time favorite box (War Tale Delta) and obviously not available any more. Just a shame it didn't come on Amazon because I've never had a problem with shipping/buying on there, and having this happen with my first Taobao purchase is discouraging.
>>7475260Thats a great display. Really encouraging overall if they've started stocking more. Hopefully its doing well for them.
>>7475286Do you remember what shipping you chose? Did you go super cheap or more towards EMS tier? I ordered mine right around the same time as you did and got it week ago, but I went with fast shipping.
Btw, I thought everyone should know Johnny is literally a rapper and has a successful music career. I'm tempted to get him a gold chain.>>7475463NOICE.
>>7475648Johnny is a robot. Johnny has no race. But he does has dreams of rhyming his way to the top. Don't steal his dreams from him.
>>7475506If you can find a gold chain and a tiny money charm, that would be a very large amount of cool. Begin the hunt!
>>7475051I was pretty neutral on this one and the black one, but your pics really make me want to get ‘er.
>>7476175Thanks! Glad they were helpful!
>>7475297I probably chose one of the mid to cheaper options. But I don't remember. Still it's surprising I haven't heard a thing since the initial forwarding.
How's BBTS for this stuff? I've always heard kind of mixed things about them as a whole, but as long as they don't take forever to ship orders, I'm not too picky.
>>7476955They're fine. Flat rate $4 shipping, it's relatively speedy. I do think they often use way bigger boxes than they need to ship things, but hey, I'm only paying $4 either way, so not a big concern.
>>7472963anon, I'm interested to buy. Can you give me the link?
>>7476955Took between and week and two weeks to finally get my alien, but shipping was on the cheap side. I got what I ordered for a reasonable price, with the gid bonus, so I'm not really complaining much. It's not a bad choice at all if there aren't better alternatives.
Tfsource/thetoysource have preorders up for rhino and hippo. Good to see another US seller hopping on the train
>>7477527>with the gid bonusWhat is this gid bonus?
>>7478001GID version of the alien egg and chestburster (they're normally flesh colored).
>>7478004>>7478001 >glow in the darkYou get the flesh color too, yeah?
>>7478056Yep. Its an extra not a replacement.
This guy is cool as shit
>>7480451I got him from the 52toys tmall store
>>7480452The answer is always Tmall/Taobao.
Anyone know why Getty would hav "(c) 1998" on it? I can't get a clear picture, but it's there.
>>7480461It's based on the Armageddon OVA design and copyright year for that is 1998.
>>7480458Forgive me for not paying attention, but how do you buy things from Tmall? Is it a hassle? With the extra fees and stuff, is the little guy actually worth it?
Broke my rule of only buying dinosaur Beastbox to get the penguins, and they are super stupid cute. Now I'm rethinking my life choices.
>>7481033> my rule of only buying dinosaur BeastboxDumb rule
Saw this on Pixiv. Maybe it will get made someday!
Wasn't super sure of Rhyden/the hippo when they were first announced but after getting Rhyden from amazon a couple of days ago I have to say it's a solid addition to the line. Not as much articulation as some of the other boxes but having a stocky/tanky build is a nice change of pace.
>>7481215Feel exactly the same way. Was weary of it before and now that I have one its totally grown on me. Even ended up liking the super loud colors.
>>7481591>Was weary of itYou were tired of it before but now you're not?
>>7481623>lose interest or become bored with something or somebodyI wasn't very interested in it at first. Then I became interested later. Whoa.
>>7475286You really need to contact the CS to enquire about your item, they may give you a 2ndary tracking number to use, you can access the livechat app from herehttps://world.taobao.com/markets/all/contact/forwarder?spm=a21bp.8139973.415591.1.198629fcezRUeR>>7475297All shipping methods to the US are by air freight, just handled by different companies. It really shouldn't take more than 20 days
>>7481591>>7481637>wearyYou probably mean wary. As in cautious. This is a common near-homophone that I see crop up pretty often.Saying "was weary of it before" implies past ownership (and subsequent tiring) of it, whereas "was wary of it before" just means you felt uncertain about it. Which I think is the idea you're trying to communicate.
>>7481979It totally is but I need to stick with my previous statement or else forever be shamed and never be able to show myself in this thread again. Please understand I am weary of this.
>>7468220I don't know if you're unlucky, overly-critical, or if you're just intentionally spreading misinformation, but I bought 6 of the KOs to customize, and mine are legit OK. They're far better than I expected, especially considering I got all 6 for the price of one original. They have a few little sprue nubs that were easily trimmed off. No big deal. The joints are tight, though not too tight. I never felt like anything was going to break. They easily came apart for painting prep, and the plastic is no worse or more blemished than any of my authentic Dios. They lack paint apps and tampos, but for customizing that's fine.The only real issue I had is that the arms are a slightly altered mold and won't bend down as far as the originals. But again, some sanding and you're gold. Nothing a plamo enthusiast or hasbro transformers collector can't handle. For ~3$ they're great.
>>7482945He said you get what you pay for, not that they were a rip off. My entire set is incredibly tight to the point that I consistently feel like parts might break at any moment. I'm glad you're happy with them, I don't feel like I wasted my money either but the plastic quality and everything else is notably inferior.
>>7482945Maybe over critical to temper expectations but I was completely honest with my experience. I wasn't exaggerating when I said the nubs were sharp enough to cut me. One did. They're cheap bootlegs that feel like cheap bootlegs. I spent $8 to cobble together the one I wanted from the two I ordered and I couldn't even do that right because one shipped without a main part of the head. The surface finish is definitely not the same as my legit ones, I'm not sure if it's cheaper plastic or if the real ones have a matte topcoat but these are definitely straight out of the mold raw. They are heavier by a fraction of an ounce so maybe the plastic used is denser or the finishing process removes enough material to be measurable. In defense of my autism, part of my job is handling qc inspections for a small industrial manufacturer so defects compared to the real deal stand out. Like the outer heal piece being too small for the part it attaches to, forcing the opening to spread apart. And the lack of texturing on the lower heal pad surface. And the tiny slot deboss details everywhere being slightly larger and shallower for some reason. That extra bit on the elbow you mentioned serves the same purpose as the SHCC version arms, it's just a simpler design, making me think these could have come from very early prototype molds.
>>7483440The finish on the plastic here definitely looks kinda cheap and nasty, like an old fiberglass lunchroom tray.
>>7483440The KO Dios I got (shown here >>7472068 ) seemed really nice, imo. The plastic didn't seem cheap, and I've collected KOs for years so I know what cheap plastic is like. It seems on par with Hasbro toys. The plastic is definitely shinier than 52Toys products, without that matte treatment. The joints are actually more firm than on my legit Dios, especially the tails.They aren't without their drawbacks, by any means. On mine, the caps on the back of their heads likes to come off, as well as the heel pieces if you're not careful (pic related). Easily solved with a tiny amount of glue. They also did have the sharp nubs that have been mentioned before, but these came off easily.The lobes at the base of the arms, I may not do anything about, since they make it easier for my hammy hands to get the arms deployed. On the other hand, the limited range of motion might start to bug me, so we'll see.All of this is to say that the KOs can easily be made to be as good as any toy you'd buy off the shelf in the US. I would say that, for the price, they'd be great for repainting or customizing or army-building (or all three).
>>7483958Hope they release more recolors like these fakes. Definitely wouldn't mind adding this kind of stuff to my collection.
>>7489847I'd really love it if the fakes came out in a wider variety of color combos. On the other hand, you can already mix and match the colors if you just pop them apart and put them back together in other combos.I'm probably going to try swap a couple to make a light-blue/black one and a dark-blue/yellow one.Wasn't someone saying you can completely dismantle Dio? I thought someone posted a pic of all the parts separated in the last thread. I'm wondering how he got the arm pins out.
perhaps a cheaper option for customizers?
>>7475286Happy ending boys. It finally came in the mail today, nearly 2 months after the initial order. Definitely worth the wait, works super well with the war tale Ghostdog I got a while ago too.
>>7491003Oh, I love that! Reminds me of Delft blue plates my great aunt used to collect.
I really excited waiting for my echoblaster preorder.
>>7493812Damn, I preordered the parrot version, but the more I see the cockatiel one, the more I’m thinking I should’ve waited for that guy
do you guys think iron man will do well?
>>7493829Yeah, most definitely Will probably increase their brand visibility by quite a bit
>>7493827The only correct answer is to get both anyways.
>>7494173I would be all over it if the wartale version of that box is some sort of raven or eagle.
>>7493827Yeah, you rite. The yellow one looking real good. If only they made the green yellow version macaw, it would be awesome too. Hope they made some green color of standard BBs.
>>7490980The arm pins are relatively easy, just pull on them nd they pop out. The hardest parts are the vented thigh covers, the round knee covers, and the eyes, all of which you probably need a tool to slide inbetween them and push/pry outwards. They're not glued, but friction is a bitch on a one-way plug.
Damn it, sorry for the double-post.
>>7493825When does iron man come out
>>7496354When it's done.
>>7496354>Stryker built this in a cave>from a box of scraps
I wasn't sure about the Jungle Dio as my first Beastbox, but now I think it looks pretty good.
