Miles finally officially delayed to December (as we all suspected but they held off on announcing, for some reason)http://www.medicomtoy.co.jp/prod/dt/27/1/14451.htmlUpcoming releases: http://www.medicomtoy.co.jp/prod/3/27/1/
i would assume that less flights anyway going on with the pandemic, so delays inevitable.
>>8532973I wonder if Black Manta will be delayed again.
Where's the best place to preorder these ?
>>8533068Any local dumpster
>>8533068Amiami, BBTS, the usual offenders.If you're a UKfag Comics and Cocktails has them as well, works out cheaper than importing once you account for postage and customs most times.
>>8533103Appreciate the info, best place for American mutts? Checking out Ambani but any other recommendations would be great!
>>85333752023 if we’re lucky. We’ve still got a couple X-Men yet to be delayed, released, and then reused as alt-costume repaints before new molds are even considered.
>>8533375Only if she's that thick.
>>8533397Try Forbiddon Planet and Toydojo for jap imports, there are more sites but those are the only ones I'm familiar with because I'm a filthy bong.I'm sure just searching Mafex Knightfall will bring up a lot of results.As for Japanese sites:Hobbylink Japan 1999.co.jpPlaza Japan
>>8533549I appreciate the info, my man!
>>8533409Japanese people hate thickness.
Looks like one mafex figure with cloth goods is actually getting into peoples hands
>>8534307>>8534310>>8534311>>8534313FINALLY. Just waiting for amiami to get this in so I can ship this bigass box I've been trying to hold off on waiting for this to come in.
>>8534313forgot this picture that shows he has underwear
>>8534313I'm like how Space Jam 2 is shaping up.
>>8534069>Sprite from a japanese game>Japanese people hate thickness.Based retard
>>8533068Doesn't matter. By the time they release you'll be too old and grey to care.
>>8534313Where can I buy that Venom?
>>8534489that's the new marvel legends movie venom that wave is just hitting stores in the states
So I was thinking of trying to make a dcau inspired Lex Luthor custom using the DC Icons Lex head and a Mafex suit body. I was thinking of getting either John Wick or Justice League Bruce Wayne. Ideally I'd like to take the Wayne torso and use it with the Johm Wick jacket, arms and legs. A long shot, but if anyone has the two figures could they confirm if the kitbash would work? I suspect the Bruce Wayne torso might be a bit broad for the John Wick jacket
>>8534446Mafex isn't even an expensive line. Try again shittard.
What are some unexpected/out there third party superheroes you'd like to see get mafex figures? Pic related.
>>8534865A Spawn with and articulated cloth cape would be amazing but there is no way Todd would let someone else touch his baby.
>>8534922Medicom already made a Spawn back in the day with RAH Spawn so it's not that crazy
>>8534865I’m happy with the 1000Toys Hellboy line so I’d be eh about that, unless they committed to a fuller BPRD roster.There’s a lot of comics I enjoy that I wouldn’t necessarily want figures for. I think Descender would make great figures. I’d also love the comic versions of the Umbrella Academy, but I don’t see that happening over the live action ones.
>>8534865For some truely unlikely stuff, it'd be cool to see a Faust figure from the movie. I really like Screaming Mad George's special effects; a movie Guyver would be cool too.As for more likely ones; besides the obvious Spawn(its not THAT impossible, there was a spawn RAH years ago.), other cool ones would be Savage Dragon, Invincible, Miracleman(though I guess Marvel has him now), WitchbladeLess likely than that would be stuff like MikeAllred's Madman, Nexus, Quantum and woody, Supreme, any Astro city characters.But maybe most of all, Stardust the Superwizard.
>>8534069The biggest lie in this thread.
>>8535224I like my PX Mezco but I'd love a good Dredd in more classic colors and without a pleather bodysuit
>>8534922>>8534952Todd's possessiveness of the Spawn IP is exactly why I sometimes wish Image Comics was a shared superhero universe that could compete enough with the big two to make it into a big 3 or 6 depending on how many other superhero pantheons we could get. Though if Medicom was able to get the Spawn license for their RAH line before then that's reassuring to hear. >>8535175>I’m happy with the 1000Toys Hellboy line so I’d be eh about that, unless they committed to a fuller BPRD roster. I once had the opportunity to get myself a 1000Toys Hellboy figure, but I ultimately decided against it because I was either short on cash, a cheapskate when it came to toys, or a mixture of both. I've regretted it ever since I found out they were doing figures for Abe Sapien, Rasputin and Lobster Johnson. Hopefully they'll rerelease the figure at some point. Also, the comics version of the Umbrella Academy would be a great lineup of figures for sure. >>8535205>Savage Dragon, Invincible, Miracleman, Witchblade, Mike Allred's Madman, Nexus, Quantum and Woody, Supreme, any Astro city characters.All of these are very good choices that I agree with. In addition to those, I'd like to see Ninjak, X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Timewalker, Shadowman, Empowered, Sistah Spooky, Barb Wire, Ghost (Dark Horse), X (Dark Horse), The Mask, Battle Beast, Allen the Alien, Tech Jacket, The Astounding Wolf-Man, Shadowhawk, Firebreather, Zephyr Noble (Jay Faerber's Noble Causes), and the WildStorm library (which DC owns now). >>8535224>>8535328Yes, what an excellent idea.
>>8535345Oh, I forgot to add some Dynamite Entertainment characters to the list as well: >Green Hornet>Lone Ranger>Vampirella >The Shadow>The Spider >The Spirit>Doctor Solar>Magnus Robot Fighter>Turok>Mandrake the Magician>Flash Gordon >The Phantom
>>8534542I'm pretty sure I have that Lex, when i get home I'll see if I can take a picture for you
>>8535345>Hopefully they'll rerelease the figure at some point.I don't know if preorders are still open but 1000Toys has a reissue of Hellboy with a new removable BPRD t-shirt coming out.
>>8534922>>8534952Yeah but Todd has been increasingly arrogant and out of touch, I doubt he'd let anybody get a license for spawn unless it was in a scale he doesn't do, like 1/6. I wouldn't be surprised if his pride wouldn't let him sell the 6 inch license to mezco or mafex or revoltech, just because he wouldn't want somebody showing him up even if he only does the "superior" 7 inch scale. He said something to the effect of 7 inch is better that 6 cuz it's bigger, in one of the videos posted in the spawn kickstarter threads months back, he sounded like a fucking lunatic.
With MAFEX releasing a Ben Reilly Spider-Man, how much closer are we to a Spider-Girl figure?
>>8535506don't tempt my dick like that anon, but honestly, probably soon going by Azrael. I want Scarlet and black first before they move to May though. Superior female spidey gets the superior figure.
>>8535506Maybe after a 2099, young comic Miles, and Scarlet Spider. If it was 10 years ago I could see her being more likely
>>8535514You say that, but when was the last time Azrael or Ben in that costume have been relevant? I think this is the sign that they're not just doing the RAH and that any character is possible
>>8535506god I wish.
>>8535224Just get the old toybiz.
>>8534669>th-that's not true, a-anon! I'm talking o-out of my ass for no r-reason! I have money!Yeah no, poorfag.
>>8535506>The make Spider-Girl and Batgirl (Cassandra Cain)MUH DICK!!!
>>8535829god bless the late 90s early 00s, I had the wizard/toywiz magazine they used this for.
>>8535829Weren't these 2 teenagers? Some artists have wild imaginations.
>>8535397I just googled the reissue for confirmation. Thanks for letting me know. >>8535815Maxx is a very good pick as well.
>>8536027Teenagers are hot, what's the problem?
>>8535505What would it take for Todd to lay off the ego trip?
>>8536363A bunch of money if history is anything to go off.
>>8535378That'd be great to see, thanks
>>8538204Why are people still buying Medicom stuff? They NEVER deliver on quality.
>>8538204>MAFEX HAVE THE BEST QC
>>8538213>>8538222Still Buying MAFEX
>>8538222Who are you qouting?
>>8538671I fucking wish. Same with Ricochet and the bunch
>>8538843>>8538671Nevermind, just realized this was the mafex general. You're a retard.
>>8534489Some stores sell them
>>8538846Mafex is making a Ben Reilly, you know.
>>8538843Kaine is more likely than Riccochet, he never even got a ml afaik, and neither did most of the guys during identity crisis.
>>8539658Yeah I thought I was in marvel general when I responded. I think the fact that Kaine (in that costume) and the Identity Crisis suits don't have Marvel Legends is evidence that there's no chance they'd ever make a Mafex. I also never thought a Japanese company would make a Ben Reilly figure either, so what do I know? On a side note though, I'm dumbfounded that they'd make Ben before they did the black suit
>>8539675Shouldn't be too long until they announce a Black Suit now that they smoothed out the texture of like half of the original mould.Scarlet Spider should be close behind after Black Suit.
>>8539675They also made fucking Azreal. like what the fuck.
>>8532973>Finally get a non-Hush DC figure>It's Azrael BatmanDon't get me wrong it is really cool but it is a weird as fuck choice.At least this means we might get a non-ugly Superman or Joker at some point in the future.
>>8539640also Darkness's titties
Is there anything NOT getting delayed at this point?
>>8538204Wouldn't be a Mafex if it wasnt shit
>>8538204He looks like a chocolate bunny
>got Jordan today>his clothes are tight and don't move around>joints feel nice on top of itDamn bros he's good
>>8546586do you think he'd make a good coomer fig? like a buck for my white women anime girls?
>>8546606Whatever turns you on.
>>8546586Gives me hope for the Spiderverse crew.
>>8546939I wouldn't get too excited
>>8546606What the fuck is wrong with you?
>>8539795figma has downsized every single breast they had the chance to work on. they'd probably claim it's for the articulation, but fear the tiddy and you know it.
>>8547094>>8538204Probably that, Mafex QC is just like playing Russian roulette.
>>8547320its a very popular category on pornhub, anon. probably the most popular
>>8547973why don't bthey make more Sonico? They'll never release this body type again.
>>8535205>any Astro city characters.Thanks. You just reminded me why I bought a set of Mythic Legion wings.Samaritan would be awesome, too.
>>8548896You're a retard
>>8546586mine has a tight and squeaky right hip that sketches me out. Plz don't break ;_;
>>8549062ANSWER THE QUESTION, FAGGOT
>>8549069Get some shock silicone oil. No more squeaky joints.
>Thanksgiving is this monthfuck
>>8549982This seems difficult to use on a figure with permanently attached soft goods
>>8551626let's make another crossover with our /co/bros
I haven't been keeping up so I just now saw their Spider-Ben. He looks so good.>>8535506Much closer than I ever would have thought I guess. Here's hoping.
>>8551626Yeah...and? That's how that works.
>>8549069Bro, Mafex squeaking means it's just a matter of time. Their plastic can't handle stress for shit.
How is adult miles? I've been thinking about picking one up for a while, but it's on sale now and I might as well pad out an hlj order with something else.
Any chance they'll do a release of 3.0 Baleman? Or maybe a 4.0 from some other scene in TDK trilogy or whatever? Only recently found out about it and am interested, but I haven't found it for non-assfuck prices anywhere.
>>8554261They've definitely moved on from the Dark Knight Trilogy.
And to no one's surprise Peter B. has been pushed back. Aaniami says December for me now.
>>8554515Wonder why Amiami didn't send me that email. Oh well. Not surprised.
>>8554513Amiami says December for Superman, but the Medicom site is saying January. It's all so tiresome...>>8554520I think Amiami has just gotten sick of keeping up with Medicom's shit at this point
>>8554528I just realised it's because I have Moles tied up with another order. I gotta separate them out. Amoamis system is probably confused because of Miles delay. The figure he's bundled with released already.
I called this thread Delays Edition for a reason. We won't break the curse until we hit autosage
>>8554415Damn, that last one looked real good too. Not feeling the Hush Batman(s) for whatever reason though. Guess I'll keep my eye on Mafex in the future.
Mando isn't going to come out until season 3, is he?
>>8554899They meant December. Just December of 2021.
>>8554594I got my Hush Batman today and it's pretty great, anon. Why aren't you feeling it?
Four figures in one month yeah I don't see this happening
who's coming out next month and who is getting pushed back even further
>>8554977>Johnny Depp and Amber Heardfufufu
>>8554977boy i sure'd be cross if miles and peter B get pushed back to next year
>>8554977I think all of those already got pushed back
>>8554977They'll release one and announce three. Watch it.
>>8554977Superman and TDKR Batman already got pushed back to January on Medicom's site. Oddly enough, black Hush Batman got pushed forward from January to December.
Hush Robin PO should open in february.
>>8557420>checked>it's realWtf is up with their schedule? I guess it's easier to pump out Batman since they've already made it before? I doubt it will come out in December but I wouldn't complain since I skipped the blue Batman for the black>>8557462Suuure pal, who's the Marvel pre-order then?
>>8554977Spiderverse Pete and Miles are for sure getting pushed again, at this point why wouldn't they just say sometime Q1 instead of stringing us along every single fucking month
>>8557740>Suuure pal, who's the Marvel pre-order then?I don't have any date for Marvel PO. Feel free not to believe it and you'll feel stupid in February though.
>>8557780Wonder if the clothing just isn't working or if some factory workers committed suicide.
got my first mafex comic figures. love em! im definitely gonna get some more once i save up. ill just have to grab a riser or spice rack or something to display em all with the space i have
Is Medicom a relatively small company or something? Do any of the other Japanese companies deal with delays like this?
>>8558443 Bob Dylan and I have a few things to say about this. Fat free foods can get you through your berries berrytard. This will help you find the information.
>>8557462Dont fuck with me like this
What are the chances of an iron man 80's/90's or classic suit? I really don't care which
>>8558443They have a bad habit announcing a shiton of stuff probably without regard for how long it takes for their factories to put it all together. I'd also wager that Covid set things back as well.
>>8558631Probably decent considering they seem to be fixated on the 90's looks of all the marvel characters they've done so far minus qwenpool
>>8558443>Do any of the other Japanese companies deal with delays like this?Kotobukiya and MaxFactory maybe
>>8558489The only ones fucking with you are Medicom and their fucking delays.>>8558631Guaranteed
>>8558228Very nice anon, enjoy your purchase. Get a Wolverine too so Scott isn't lonely. Either the Mafex or ML work great with him.
Kek. Sentinel just announced their Spider-Verse Miles figure and Mafex still hasn't released theirs.
>>8557903How do you lads plan to display your Peter B? I'm going with the full Spidey suit, except for the shoes, and wearing the jacket.
I'll be financially ruined if Mafex does end up releasing Miles, Peter B, FFH Spidey and Mando all in December.Good thing that's definitely not gonna happen.
>>8559032I kind of like schlubby Spidey, may do that just to have him bumming around some displays.
>>8559037Lol Mando definitely won't happen, I could see one of the Spider-Verse boys coming out in December, but not both. I'm betting Superman will also be delayed.
well now that sentinel is gonna blow mafex the fuck out on the spiderverse releases, im regretting my preorders. i guess i can just upgrade the mafex as the sentinel comes out, similar to what im doing with figma -> yamaguchi MHA releases
>>8559021>>8559214Do you think they'll even finish the team from the movie? Sentinel is known to either drop lines after doing one or two releases from a property or just straight up do one-offs from something and never touching the franchise again.
>>8559057Supe's been delayed twice already. I don't think they will do it again.
>>8559789The Spider-Verse boys have been delayed more times than that already. I won't be that surprised.
>>8559238nah, you are right, they probably wont go as deep roster as mafex already is
>>8558228One of my favorite features of the Mafex comic line is the unmasked headswaps. But I don't want to risk breaking my comic Spidey figure due to the "mafex curse", even if it's one of the ones with better QC. So how exactly do I remove the neck part to complete the unmasked look? >>8558631While I prefer the Extremis or Bleeding Edge look, I definitely want a comic version of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America from Mafex instead of their MCU versions. So if the pic you posted happens to be the one they choose then so be it.
>>8538204Are there any other reviews of this guy?I'd like to know for sure if this fig is shit or if pic related got unlucky.
>>8560313the pic shows a common qc issue where the knee pops off too easily, kinda like wolverine’s arm. It’s annoying but tolerable
>>8560316Ah, I thought it was broken.
Sentinel about to eat Latefex's lunch.
>>8560363I could do without Spider Ham's gift mallet but stuff like an expressive mask head, the spray can and the headphones are sorely missing from the MAFEX.
>>8560355>>8560357sweet. more options mean the consumer winsi look forward to seeing if they do a full spiderverse cast
Why there is a fag trying so hard to get (You)s with a cheap attempt of a company war?
>>8557462>Robin>not NightwingFucking Medicom, get your shit together
>>8560357legit have never heard if these guys until this figure. How are these guys? Wouldn't be surprised if it comes out before the mafex>if they have better QC I'm already sold
>>8560586Sentinel toys have great articulation and good, consistent QC.They don't finish character rosters often and they're very pricey, you might not feel satisfied with your purchase for the money you pay for them sometimes since some releases can be barebones
>>8560586sentinel is pretty much best of the best, but they dont usually do rosters. we'd be very lucky if they release more than miles
>>8559032Same dilema, ended ordering two.
>>8560586They usually do mecha stuff, but are generally top-notch.Way better QC on average than Mafex.
>>8560586Sentinel is overpriced for what it is and can probably be blamed for the price hikes all around in the hobby along with SHF's movie sublines. The QC tends to be stellar minus some of the robot lines IIRC I think they did a white and red robot people were upset about, and Jin Saotome's' Blodia had some issues. They also tend to do stylized sculpts that don't always work out, but if you like the figure's sculpt, like the paint, like everything about it, you'll most likely get a good product.
>>8560357>>8560359>>8560362>>8560363>>8560367Where exactly can I find this guy in terms of online retailers? Is the reason why he's not on BBTS as of this post because they haven't put him up for preorder yet? >>8560586>>8560617>>8560746>>8561287>>8561516Hopefully if this SV-Action line from Sentinel takes off they'll start giving a shit about completing rosters. From what I've seen their Iron Man figures look good.
>>8562256Seems like he hasn't gone up for PO on any stores, AmiAmi is your best bet to lock him in early.
>>8562265I'll keep that in mind. But on the other hand, where exactly did these promotional images for the SV-Action Miles Morales figure come from? Googling it took me to TheFwoosh's website regarding this news, but I doubt that's the source of those promotional images.
>>8562543I always got the feeling they viral marketed here, around when teh DMCV figures tehy made came out they tried selling them for about 200$ and as soon as that was announced here, and people laughed at them, there was a internet wide price drop, could be coincidence, but I'm not entirely convinced. Very few companies I feel do that kinda thing here.
>>8560510It's coming too but probably later.
>>8536027> that artist is J Scott Campbell.Well, there's your answer right there.
>>8555068Fuck, now I NEED them both.
>>8554977Anything with Cloth is just going to keep being delayed because all the factories gotta crank out masks now.
I'm pretty pleased with Jordan. I was worried for a bit from the previous early photos looking really crap.
>>8564183The clothes are sewed together so they don't come off easily. It's likely you could snip some stitches and remove them though.
>>8564179What are the pegs on his jordans like? Do you think they will work for miles
>>8564184In case anyone was wondering.
>>8564185The peg slides in at a bit of an angle. Given his size the shows may be too large for Miles, but Miles seems like he has kind of cartoonish oversized feet, so they may look ok.
>>8564232>"Rock may have damaged his left wrist but he still has his right!"
>>8564238Yeah I noticed that was popping out when it was too late.
>>8565340Mafex knows that Scott Summers is the Question.
>>8565340His eyes are portals to another dimension that releases an endless concussive force. They can't just leave that lying around for anyone to use.
>>8565340>>8565415>>8565608Could you theoretically cripple Cykes' mutant powers by gouging out his eyes provided you're fast/durable enough to do so?
>>8565854Hm, but if the eyes are a portal, do they even need the head? Would the eyeballs keep shooting?
>>8555068technically you can already have shf depp from the pirates of caribbean release to be abused by mermaid heard.
>>8560357>>8560359>>8560362>>8560362Whelp, goodbye Mafex. All this with guaranteed better QC for a few thousand yen more? Sign me up.
>>8554977lowkey kind of want that black and red spidey even though i already have the shf. it just looks so nice.
>>8565608>>8565854>>8565944Okay I don't read comics but thanks to remind me thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdjsqp8x8Wk
>>8565854Didn’t AoA wolvie take out one of his eyes and lost a hand? So yeah I guess it would cripple him
>>8566154Uh, what the hell is that? The CGI looks fine, if a bit dated. Kinda weird looking in my opinion but to each their own. >>8565944>>8567702I haven't gotten around to reading Age of Apocalypse yet so I wouldn't know. I really should though since it's a classic storyline. >>8567826Oh shit, they're doing The Boys now? I'm assuming their going with the live action versions instead of the comics versions going by this teaser image. So for those of you who've watched the show, do the character designs deviate from the comics in major ways? Or are the costume designs close enough to the comics counterpart that they wouldn't be out of place in my comics version only collection of Marvel and DC Mafex figures? Here's hoping we'll get some Invincible figures out of this since Amazon Prime is planning on doing an animated TV show for Invincible franchise.
>>8567826god dammit more live action garbage.
>>8567826Could always be a RAH?I'm kind of getting sick of Mafex announcements when they won't release anything. I'd love a Hush Harley, Ivy, Nightwing, ect but they realistically wouldn't be out til 2022 at the earliest...
>>8567826Yesss, I'm actually down with this.Give laser eye beams Latefex.
>>8567870>do the character designs deviate from the comics in major ways?most of them do, but they take design cues from their comic counterparts. it's like classic marvel vs MCU designs
>>8567887No, they used #mafex on their post.
>>8567826Huge pass. Fucking live action shit, they’re never gonna give us any more comic figures now. Line is dead
>>8567826Unless they've drastically improved their face printing tech these are gonna be a hard pass from me.
>endgame captain america pushed from march 2021 to august 2021ight ima head out
>>8568766Kek. If Mafex stopped announcing stuff right now, they would still wait until 2024 to release everything.
>>8567826OH shit this greeeeeat
>>8567826Meh could be interesting. Not that it matters since it won't release this decade. I love announcements as much as the next guy, but with all the push backs maybe hold off on new figure announcements for a bit.
>>8568766I don't get this shit. Cap is still months away and they're already pushing him back? I fear for Gambit, Psylocke and Ben Reilly.
>>8568766>A figure that wasn't going to be released for another 4 months has been delayed for 5 more months on top of thatYou can't make this shit upAnd yet they keep revealing stuff like they have a condition or something
Does anyone have any experience replacing hush batman's cape?
>>8567826Heres hoping he comes with pantless legs so he can jerk himself off
Hot marvel and dc females please. Already have psylocke on preorder. >marvelRogue Comic spider gwenComic captain marvel>DcFire and iceHawkwomanPoison ivy
>>8573133Oops i forgot bae
>>8573135I think that susan storm toys will inevitably always be boring just because her power's so boring. The only way I ever see an Invisible Girl figure being decent is if they include 2 figures; one completely visible and one completely invisible and every part interchangable. Not to mention half-invisible option parts. Also obligatory bubble/shield, though I could forgive if they forgo it for what would essentially be an entirely seperate figure
>>8573159Shut up nerd. We just add forcefield effects in a pink or blue hue and a transparent arm
>>8573135Based, I wish we'd get the full FF from an import line. Mafex would probably be the best but I also think they'd all be great as Revoltechs, especially since they'd benefit from the interchangeable parts
>>8573159>Invisible figureBruh just put nothing on your shelf & say she’s there lmao
>>8573766This isn't her only powers, and in fact they are hardly useful compared to everything else she can do
Oh boy, opened my Comic Spidey and it's wrist joints are pretty good, sadly though it has two left butterfly joints, fucking idiots jammed one in the right socket and it's really obvious.Anyone else have this issue?
>>8573733How the hell would do you Reed? Use the same material Hasbro used for the long arms?
>>8573919>how would you do reed>line already has character that vary in size such as venom and carnageJust release him with an outstretched arm as an accessory. The alternative is to release him for 200, or have expansion packs. Venom mever had any venom effect parts anyway.
>>8573919Give him some alternate elongated arms with joints. Mafex are no strangers to doing swappable limbs or torsos
>>8573908Pop it off the ball joint and see if it’s in the wrong way round. Might not actually be a duplicate part.
>>8573821Yeah, actually. Luckily I had a bootleg sitting around so I gutted that and swapped the joints out. It's a pretty easy fix, just be careful. Similar thing happened with my Venom, but he had two left forearms.
Eat shit Medicom.
>>8577001Medicom: Thanks for beta testing!
>>8577001Now you reminded me of that upset Japanese guy who got told that Mafex quality was good with the last release.
>>8575480Is it possible to pop the butterfly joint out?, I know the arm comes out but the butterfly joint seems pretty well stuck in there.>>8575613Pretty annoying to have that happen, especially when the KO Comic Spidey is a slightly smaller scale.
>>8577001>>8577025No Marvel announcements this month?
>>8577025Fuck that's awesome
>>8577001I skipped the first astro boy because I heard it sucked, does this one looks like it fixes the issues?
>>8577001>>8577025These motherfuckers better not be done with X-Men or Hush figures. At this rate we'll get rogue and nightwing in 2022.
>>8577231no more marvel figs ever, you're stuck with movie capeshit from figuarts or marvel legends, have fun
>>8577246How would we know?Question is, are you feeling lucky?
>>8573821Sounds like mafex
>>8577025NICE! I'm only excited because this means Superman is definitely coming after this one.
>>8577512wasnt sure if the first release issues were due to things you can visibly identify (certain joints, etc). but no, im not, guess ill skip the PO on this one
>>8577299Realistically these figures probably won't be out until 2022 anyways
>>8577231its not the 23rd yet so we will have to wait and see
>>8577299They don't care about completing teams
>>8577215The arm is ball jointed into the butterfly, and the butterfly is ball jointed downwards into the torso.
>>8577299>2022That's being 'very' optimistic. Likely you won't see them in hand till 2024 with all their delays.
>>8573133Hopefully their ass tech will have improved when they get to those.
>>8578165I've literally forgotten what Mafex I have on order.
>>8573908>>8573909>>8573911Thankfully mine was okay (I was scared about those wrists pegs though), but what the fuck happened that made this figure such a lightning rod for problems? Geez.
>>8578087It sure is, but fuck trying to get that out, it's stuck in tight, but just by pulling out the arms and neck you can see it's obvious that they've just put the wrong joint in there, hopefully amiami can send a replacement.>>8578318Yea I was too and mine seemed really solid, just would just be careful with it, but now if I get a replacement sent out I get to be paranoid all over again.
>>8577732>NICE! I'm only excited because this means Superman is definitely coming after this one.Hopefully soon! I really want a DKR Superman. I'm still annoyed that we never got one out of Mezco.
>>8578318>what the fuck happened that made this figure such a lightning rod for problems?Mold degradation perhaps or they're not storing the plates properly after each print. Wouldn't surprise me given how many figures they're rushing out at once.I think Mafex needs to take a break for a month or two and reassess their strategy because this constant stream of announcements and delays is frankly unsustainable.
>>8567826I wonder if Amazon will get a special exclusive version not available to retailers?
>>8578998I'm not, Mezco's DKR figures have aged like milk.
>>8579126>I think Mafex needs to take a break for a month or two and reassess their strategy because this constant stream of announcements and delays is frankly unsustainable.I gotta agree with this. And they're releasing some of my most anticipated figures of the year. The constant delays are ridiculous. It would be one thing if they weren't constantly announcing new things too. They need to take a step back and really play catch up. I think the recent surge in popularity with things like the comic styled figures inflated their ego a bit. That's not to say that, outside of QC issues, the figures we are getting aren't great, they totally are. They just need to chill out and work through the figures they've already announced before announcing more.
>>8579476Just needs a good custom head sculpt to go on the body.
>>8579548The body is the part that has aged like milk
>>8559032Sweatpants heist job spidey.
how much money on either side of the bet would you put on spiderverse peter B and miles coming out by december?
>>8580415By December? Extremely doubtful. But maybe a Christmas miracle will happen.
>>8580415Dont even get your hopes up man, Q1 2021 at absolute earliest
>>8580415Aw man I want that so bad but I don't think it's gonna happen, I think it'll be on JanuaryI see a February release at the latest in all honesty.
>>8557780I just ended up cancelling my Miles and bought the Sentinel version instead.
>>8562256>Where exactly can I find this guy in terms of online retailers?You can get him on GameStop for $75 if you're in the US.
>>8582342Looks cool. Let's hope for early 2023
>>8582342>oct 2021fuck why so long?
>>8582358Because they still have to release everything that's been delayed all year first
>>8582358to release him in 2022
>>8582358Mafex has no concept of time.
>>8578998Will this one have a smiling face at least?
>>8583009Yes but with red eyes
>>8577001MAFEX would make the perfect Mega Man.
>>8583761Considering their first Astro Boy, probably not
>>8554977I'm excited for Manta but I don't expect it anytime soon.
>>8580415try april 2021
>>8583954honestly would love that
>>8583954Miggy would be amazing
>>8583954Why all those guys on the background look at his ass? ah, never mind.
>>8583761Tthe perfect promo pics of Megaman.
>>8577001so... whats different about this one and the last one?
>>8583190I'll take it.>>8584504Why don't you buy one and find out ;)
>>8577001If they would shrink him down to actual scale I might actually give a shit
>>8534865Hawk and Dove
>>8567826>not the superior comic version. Geez...thanks?
>>8587089When I made that post, I mainly had non-Marvel/DC characters in mind, but that's a good suggestion as well.
>>8583954I'd probably buy that, sure.
>>8588744Would be cool but the inventor of it is a prick and it's worth a fortune.
>>8534542Too small for mafex bodies i think
>>8588744>>8590392>>8590396Uh, what black material are you talking about and why is it's inventor a dick? Does he own the patent to it and is really anal about who gets to use it or not?
>>8590830Vantablack. It's actually not the inventor, but Anish Kapoor, the guy who bought the exclusive license to use the sprayable paint made from the substance for artistic purposes. He's kind of a dick in general aside from that, too.
>>8590830Vantablack, no that isn't shopped
Anyone know when hush Superman is showing up in the US?
