The joints on Pac-Man look terrible.
Eternal Sailor-Moon when?
>>8560730Agreed. What’s with the pins? That’s straight up Marvel Legends tier.
>>8560810it looks bad. i would have preferred a treatment more like the nendoroid kirby
>>8560810It's fitting. Old character gets old articulation methods.
Anyone else gotten Tamashii stands that were more brittle than usual?Ordered 4 2-packs and like a third of the clamp thingies were broken right out of the box. Bad production run or is that normal now?
Will we wever see him?
>>8560810Probably a prototype from like 10 years ago they pulled out of storage when they finally got the license.
>literally only three figures not from Toku/Marvel/DBZ/Sailor Moon/Star Wars
>>8561802Yes, we need a Gundam pilots line too.
>>8561373>Will we wever see him?No because you will only be able to see the shine of a beam, like a flashback, the shadow of this guyCHAR CHAR CHARCHAR CHAR CHAR

>>8562001looks like a cheapshit unpainted gunpla model, like their RD lineWhy is bandai too cheap to hire quality statueshit makers and spend more than 50¢ on paint apps, when they sell far more collector action figures?
>>8563092OK Subjectanon, back to bed.
>>8563092Because Bandai make more profit been cheap in the production and knowing a good chunk of their audience is desperate with low standards.
>>8563092You do realize that >>8562001 looks way more like the anime than >>8563092 right? Not that I care about the figure but saying it looks cheap because it looks like it's supposed to is retarded.
>>8563293but anon, more detail is good, even if it looks nothing like the source materialreminds me of those fags who think imagination works goku looks good because his gi has clothing texture, even though that's not what it looks like on screen
>>8561596>when they finally got the license.anon bandai chomped on namco more than a decade ago
I bought a used IW Hulk knowing it had paint rub, but it's like a grey-white and I want to get it off. How would I do this?The figure itself is really cool though. Maybe it's just how little I spent on it but it's really fun to pose him around and bash ML with it. If he had a true bicep swivel he'd be a 10/10.
I wonder when the various retailers will update the stock photos?I knew they were probably waiting on the new episode in order not to spoiler for anime only peeps.
>>8563969This excites me. He looks great.
>>8563969>I wonder when the various retailers will update the stock photos?Who cares?
>>8563973People who are interested in the figure I would assume.Calm down anon, take your meds.
>>8563975NO SHUT UPI ONLY LIKE ANIME FROM WHEN I WAS A CHILD, JAPAN SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO MAKE ANYTHING NEWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH
>>8564612Not him but he's kinda right. Nobody will remember that shit in a year and people who bought the figures will unload them for $10 each.
>>8564612Autism, autism everywhere.
>>8563969I'm still confused by this post and the argument it sprung.Why would they be updating stock photos? Is this a typical practice in the toy industry? As far as I'm aware, it isn't.
>>8564871They do it less frequently anon. Usually if their is a design change. But yes, like you said, its rare.
>>8564879Gotcha. Was there like, some kind of accessory from that figure that was in a brand new episode of the anime recently? Then I suppose the question makes sense?
>>8564880Yes, from what I gather from browsing MFC, I guess the figure has updated heads.I don't think Bandai showed them off due to spoilers. I've seen that happen a handful of times, but it usually happens when they notice a flaw in prototype design, such as wrong color used.
>>8564871>>8564890The reason they're updating the promo pics is how bad the preorders are selling.
>>8564612Or no one cares because it's clearly a shelfwarming figure.
>>8564891Anything outside of DBZ sells like shit from the SH Figuarts line.
>>8564917>*Anything that isn't SW, MCU, Kamen Rider and Ultraman sells like shit from the SH Figuarts line.FTFY
>>8563969>>8563972no interest in the show but this guy actually looks pretty cool
>>8562001If only Bandai knew that tits can sell a line and released this after Spike. The Cowboy Bebop line would still be alive
>>8566160Explain Lupin, then.
>>8566164Do you not have your fujiko?
>>8566171My point is they never complete the Lupin line and they make Fujiko, a Tits figure. So tits don't keep a line alive.
>>8566160>>8566171It's less about tits carrying a line than it is about releasing literally anyone people actually care about. Lupin almost got the full lineup out, and that's because there's really not a weak character in those releases, everyone who's a fan of Lupin wants the whole group plus Zenigata.Not one soul wanted Vicious, and definitely not before the rest of the main cast. If they'd saved him for last and made him an exclusive people might have been into it for completion sake.
>>8566523>Not one soul wanted Vicious, and definitely not before the rest of the main cast. If they'd saved him for last and made him an exclusive people might have been into it for completion sake.Same situation with Master Asia then? What the fuck was that honestly?
>>8566851Master Asia is a case of the western fandom begging for him to be released, and then when he inevitably bombed because Japan couldn't give a fuck about him Bandai just assumed it all Gundam characters wouldn't sell as figuarts.
>>8566160If fucking PAK didn't finish the team then SHF never really had a chance too.
>>8566868The western fandom was begging for him? Damn I didn't know that. They released prototypes of Rain and Allenby too didn't they? That freaking sucks. I would have bought both. But they seriously should have started with Char.
>>8563076>TFW they didn't send in the supers
>>8566870>Damn I didn't know thatYou shouldn't know about that because it's bullshit that just gets parroted over here a lot. Ten guys being vocal over it in an imageboard means nothing, and the polls are just part of the reason. Master Asia was released because he's a fighter outside his Gundam so they worked under the idea that he deserved the action figure treatment before other pilots, Domon was already released, Bandai was also tackling G Gundam in their Robot Damashii line and they released Master Gundam at the same time as Master Asia to try and boost sales on both, and G anniversary was close (and that's the reason for the planned Allenby, Rain and casual Domon). It just failed like many other figures because the interest wasn't really there. That's all there is to it.
>>8566939They should've still released Allenby and Rain. They'd sell more than freaking Master Asia. Fuck Bandai why did you have to hurt me like this?
anyone remember how much he went for at release? i forgot all about him until recently. i want him now but he's going for $65 on amazon.
>>8567955iirc amiami sold him for that much too when they still had him
>>85679554830 JPY from amiami according to my records.
>>8567985>>8567987Lucky you, >>8567984 was late comer tax
>>8566939Did you forget how derpy the final Master Asia product looked? They didn't update the figure whatsoever before release despite the time lapse, or at the very least didn't give an actual shit. I didn't even want the guy but I'm certain that at least played a part in the low sales
>>8568821You have to remember as well that when he came out, SHF was a mostly unproven line. It had barely been out for more than a year or two and was going up against things like SIC and figma, and the proportions and looks of them were honestly at least a bit cheaper at the time. I was and still am a huge G Gundam fan, but when Domon dropped, everyone was joking about the weirdly shaped limbs, same as we were joking about the tube-like nature of old KR Figuarts.The line has become significantly better to the point that they're probably the best on the market period, but they've come a long fucking way. Even to this day I look at that Char and think about how it'd be cool to have, but not without that skirt being re-engineered because it looks like it'd interfere so much with the posing.
>>8570558I'd rather a Revoltech but I wouldn't say no. Fuck I loved Vanquish.
Will they be making new Harry Potter figures does anyone know?
Can anyone else with the beskar Mando help me out?I think that maybe my left hip was assembled wrong, the chunk with "L" marked on it hangs lower the the one on the right side(also no "R" is visible on that one) and it doesn't allow the leg to move inwards as much as the right leg can.Is this QC or standard?
>>8572727Pic of the inward range of both legs, the left one can only get this far.
>>8568821>Did you forget how derpy the final Master Asia product looked?Compared to many other human figuarts back then he looked fine enough, he wasn't a piece of crap like Portgas D. Ace or Terry Bogard. The face decals weren't as good as the promo pics for sure, but not that bad either.
>>8572742I cancelled my pre-order the moment pictures were online and they were cross eyed, I'd say it was pretty bad.
>>8572389I don't know about Snape, but I heard the children absolutely shelfwarmed. Here in the States I saw them on heavy clearance which is sad because they looked like they were pretty good figures. I'm guessing it was a mistake to make their kid versions first instead of the age range they are for most of the movies
>>8572780Dunno anon, when talking about bad figuarts I have this abomination and some others in mind, compared to them Master Asia is perfectly serviceable in my book. Not great, but good enough if you like the character and want a poseable figure of him.
>>8572727>>8572734Comparing it to mine, I think yours got flipped upside down and backwards. That circle next to the L, I can kind of see it up at the top when I looked inside the hip with a flashlight. Basically the L should be facing the correct way if you were to be looking at his ass. I don't own many Figuarts and haven't had to fix anything on them so I'm not sure how you'd correct that outside of contacting whomever you bought it from or Bandai.
>>8572830Could I trouble you for a pic of yours similar to mine >>8572727 here?Gonna have to contact amiami about this and hope that they don't just blow me off, any extra proof of the defect would be good.
>>8572857Hope this helps
>>8572816I don't know how to tell you this, but just because something is worse doesn't make another thing less bad. Also your comparison doesn't even make sense. The One Piece Figuarts were some of the oldest anime figures from the line, while Master Asia was festering in prototype hell and then they released him as-is in fucking 2015 when the engineering and quality was far better. They didn't even try to make him a passable quality release. Not to say I think Master Asia would have flown off the shelves regardless, but if you were around back then you should absolutely remember the backlash online and it's simply irresponsible to pretend like the lack of quality didn't at least play some part in the low sales.
>>8573165>but if you were around back then you should absolutely remember the backlash online and it's simply irresponsible to pretend like the lack of quality didn't at least play some part in the low sales.What I'm actually saying is that the bad quality of this particular release is greatly exaggerated. It doesn't really look that bad in person to make it bomb as it did. At all. There's plenty of shittier figuarts that sold better.That's why I also laugh at that "backlash online", like what people say here or any other english-speaking site means jack shit to the sales of this particular figure. The main buyers of anything Gundam are still the japanese, and that's the market that decides if something related is successful or not. And it's pretty damn obvious japanese Gundam fans would rather buy a nice statue of a Gundam pilot than an action figure. How the figure looks wasn't the deal breaker, but the lack of interest from the get-go.
>>8572993Thanks, hope it does.
>>8573165>then they released him as-is in fucking 2015it's wasn't as is, master asia used to had a different prototype with a different joint set up and with more shit shown, like a bare chest piece and untied hair head to recreate his death scene, before going to development hell, then resurfaced with a new sculpt along with rain and allenby.i feel proto asia was going to suffer wtih more hindered articulation, only the shoulders on the old one seemed to have better range.i always found interesting that every time master asia gets discussed here, the same overexaggerated arguments are thrown. including the idea of blaming his low sales for cancelling char, especially since the latter is fucking more popular
>>8573456If it makes you feel better, I've had issues with other figures I got from Amiami and they were able to help me out it get me into contact with someone who could. I once had a Figma come with a broken piece and asked for a replacement and offered to pay for the shipping. I was sent two duplicates of it for free without any trouble.
>>8564731>>8564916JJK is taking off in Japan and these figures are the first pieces of broad merchandise we're getting.
>>8574296NO SHUT UPI HAVENT HEARD OF IT SO THERES NO WAY IT COULD BE POPULAR
>>8574300You have now. Go watch it.
>>8574296That's nice, doesn't mean it will result in high sales though.Would be fun if it did and it resulted in some DBZ/Figma seething at the new anime figures.
>>8574352True, especially if they're not good quality. Bad quality Figuarts definitely seem more like an exception rather than the norm. I'll definitely grab one pretty soon myself.
>>8574422This thing looks cool as hell, but that color scheme is all over the place. Either have him go full multi-color or b&w, but not this weird mishmash where the skirt and large swathes of the upper body are in a three-tone scheme at most while the rest of the figure is in this super-ornate set-up.
>>8574490Kamen Rider designs have been awful like that for a while now.
>>8574490Yeah, black and white with just the tiniest dashes of red would've been a far more appealing colour layout. Shame, as it's otherwise a really striking design.
>>8574490>>8574554>>8574665Placing it side-by-side with the amazing base form (the one on the left) makes it look even worse. As a Rider fan, the lack of design coherence in many (not all) suit designs has always been my major beef with the latest shows.
>>8574490You can blame Toei/PLEX for reusing the undersuit rather than repainting the whole thing to go along with the new parts.
Speaking of lines that died just a bit too soon...
Hmmm something something rule about advertising.
>>8560807Fuck it is so good.tfw if I want posable Char I have to settle on the Hot Toys one.
For anybody who doesn't have Loki already I'd recommend not getting him, his ankles are pretty much unusable. They're just straight pegs with no rockers.
>>8577043That's fine. I don't bother getting MCU stuff anyway.
>>8577043thats hilarious, no wonder hes like thirty bucks on mandarake
release my nigga
>>8576343Dude, quit posting your oversaturated nonsense. Those figures aren’t even looking at each other in that pic.
>>8577679We should have the preorders for him and stealth Cap before March.
>>8577795>stealth capbased if true. any prototypes/production samples?
The fucking mods are dead or something? why this shit >>8576343 still here?
>>8563076R E L E A S E H I M
Where can I still get Supaidaman without paying an arm and leg?
>>8578175nowhere, sorry bro. the last spots to get these things (bbts etc) all shipped so its late tax from here on out
>>8578175When they reissue him. Because it's the only thing people want from them lately.
>>8578175What do you consider "an arm and a leg?" I got him off Mandarake last month for ¥8000.
>>8578175the day he went up for pre-order, better start looking for a delorean.
>>8578175Uhh, he's up on Mandy right now for literally only a few bucks more than he originally retailed for. So if that's too expensive for you, then you weren't ready to pay even the retail price in the first place.
>>8578816Thanks. Doesn't Mandy overcharge on shipping though?
>>8579440Some of their stores do it more obviously than others.Forgot which one it was that does it the most shamelessly.
>>8579549>they couldn't be fucked to add hinges to this thingLIFE IS PAINI HATE-
>>8579440Not even remotely, unless you count DHL as overcharging.
>>8579924That seems like something that guarantees hinges. Star Wars Figuarts are low effort shit and this one even had more accessories than normal.
star wars figuarts fags cucked again. thanks for funding the DBchad and tokuchad lines
>>8580210i would rather all lines be good, but that's just me.
>>8579440>>8579488You will end up paying a lot if you get kicked up to the bigger box tier, but for a single SHF, you'll be fine. It'll probably be less than $20 in shipping for DHL. Just be careful if you try to add more shit into the order, you never know what might put you over the top. I ordered two Figmas and that was too much, I got put into the larger box, but two SHFs were fine since they have slim boxes. Remember, with DHL, volume is the danger, not weight.Also, don't order from Mandarake Sahra whatsoever. It's tempting, because they're the only ones who give shipping quotes beforehand, but they also overcharge on shipping in general.
>>8580084...I count DHL as overcharging; they're really milking their monopoly...
>>8579440Mandarake operates through a number of different stores. So it depends on the store. Most are reasonable.
>>8580210>It's another dragoncuck trying to act equal with the Tokuchads episode
>>8580402If Toku is so based why did Dragon Ball and One Piece get the 3.0 bodies first?
>DBcucks and tokukeks thinking they're better than anyone
>>8580422>Why did Bandai try experimental design choices on less popular brands than their bread and butter?
>>8580354DHL actually doesn't cost much more than EMS did, and they're doing just as good timewise. In fact, DHL even arrives faster than EMS for me. The biggest difference is that DHL calculates by volumetric, which can be good or bad for you depending what you're buying. Small, heavy things = good, large lightweight things = bad. On the other hand, large heavy things = sorta good again. I got a massive kit shipped via DHL for only like $40 after the pandemic started.
>>8580430>Implying these retards aren't trolls falseflagging
>>8580246>Also, don't order from Mandarake Sahra whatsoever.This almost always, only problem is because everyone avoids this store, but some times it's the only one with a figure you are looking for, even multiples of it.... but fuck they are rape on the shipping.1 figma at any other mandy store is like 12 bucks delivered from Sahara it starts at 30 bucks and only goes up
>>8580568This might be true where you live, but not where I live.DHL charge more for shipping, charge an "administration fee" and then charge an additional "import fee" - even though my country doesn't charge import fees on small package goods.It's bullshit, but they are the fastest service and they're all that some places will use right now.
>>8581800Last time I used DHL they fucked me like that too. Could have bought another nendoroid with the fees
>>8563092man statuefags have terrible taste
>>8576343I was already following you, I had never unfollowed someone faster though.
>>8580430Well, we get the better products, that's for sure.
I just wanted tony man
>>8580568I recently ordered a single MonsterArts figure from Decillion and it cost $40 to ship.
>>8583635>I just wanted tony manwhy?
>>8583739Uhh...and? There are no small Monsterarts boxes, they range from big to FUCKING MASSIVE. I had to pay $45 DHL for two Figmas, and Monsterarts boxes can certainly be bigger than two Figma boxes.
>>8584179>There are no small Monsterarts boxes, they range from big to FUCKING MASSIVEJust to be ThatGuy, that's not technically true anon, the Alien Warrior and Wolf Predator are both MonsterArts and they're regular Figuarts size.
>>8583829The facial hair looks so bad
>>8583829>dat lipsdid he just ate hot chilies?
>>8583829Jesus thats so terrible. The Iron Man 3 headsculpt is fine and the Mark 4 release was absolutely perfect. Why do they keep going backwards?
Not sure which general I've seen it, but why is it bad to buy from the Sahra store in Mandarake? They seem to display their shipping prices?
>>8587354shipping is a bit more expensive and since it's automated they don't let you undervalue to avoid taxes
>>8587610"A bit more" is an understatement, it's quite a bit pricier than any of the other stores.
>>8560739crystal super sailor moon when
>>8587996What are generally the best ones for cheaper shipping?
>>8587996It also can't calculate certain items well. I remember wanting to get some kind of towel and it made the shipping jump 3000y.
>>8588180I ordered a small item from Sahra once hoping that the ludicrous shipping was a mistake, and surely they would correct it when an actual person looked at it. Nope. Not a mistake. I ended up paying a ludicrous shipping price for a pretty small item.
>>8587610Do the other stores allow undervaluing? I've never tried, but recently I've been repeatedly hit with import taxes.
>>8574263Well they are gonna exchange it for me, so I just gotta send it back first and they will cover the shipping. Best I could hope for given that it'd be next to impossible for me to dissemble the hips myself.Guess it will be another couple months before I can really play with this figure.
