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.
>>8588204in the future (and for those curious), you can get shipping estimates for any item for any shipping method.but if you saw the sticker price and paid it, i'm sorry but that's on you
>>8589715How do you get shipping estimates? And is it an instant/timely thing, or like a "wait a day for a reply" kinda thing? If the latter, your item might sell out while you wait.Also, as I understood it, Mandarake does not like it if you cancel orders because you "didn't like the shipping cost." And I'm not tryna get banned from there, it's too important of a resource. So yeah, I paid it. I half-expected that outcome anyway, and it's better to take the L one time and learn my lesson than potentially get banned.
>>8589954It's alright, but I think I legitimately like the old Ixa better. Yeah, it's not "realistic" proportions, but it just looks good to me. It may be lingering fondness since it was one of my absolute favorite SHFs, but I think it's aged quite well aesthetically and I actually dig the stylized proportions, maybe a little more than the new one even.
>>8590168i saw a figma tank, sent an email to the store with the specific item code, and in like a day they sent back estimates for DHL, EMS, etc. it's true that the item might get snatched up in the meantime, but most new things pop back in stock if you're patient.i do understand where you're coming from about taking the loss, we all have those moments
Alright just ordered the sailor scouts so what am I in for?
How are the To Love-Ru girls? they look better in person? something I need to know?
When will they revive the Naruto line?
>Articulated fingersAww hell yeah, I was curious about him but this Hulk's a must get now, just going to put it with my comic Mafex figures, close enough to comic
>>8591341No neutral head is interesting, it's the "Hulk... Smash" smirk instead
>>8591341>Captain: "Hulk... rape!"
Cap's just the same except dirtied up, comes with a dirty shield, clean shield, neutral unmasked head and a gritted teeth masked head, so different enough from the recent release I guess>>8591349HulkvsBlackWidow.gif
Iron Man comes with a tonne of blast effects, lasers and alternate damaged parts
Don't care much for mcu stuff but at least Thor looks like he's had more effort put into him than recent figures
This has got to be the best implimentation of the hammer swinging effect yet. Looks better and won't topple the figure over. The little ball joint is a nice touch as well
YOOOOOO ! BANDAI !LET'S FUCKING GO !
>>8591363It looks alright. It's definitely a huge step up from what we've gotten in the past. Anyone else remember the hilariously shitty "hammer shield" Marvel Select gave us?
>>8591363>>8591479But to be honest, I'd prefer not to see the hammer at all. All we need is a blurry looking disc, and boom, we get it. At most maybe some blurry colors that suggest the hammer, like Mikey's chuckin effect here.
>>8591363>Mafex came up with the spinning hammer effect>Bandai: "Me too!">Half-assed itLMAO!
>>8591494>Mafex came up withDawg, did you not see me post >>8591479? That figure was released like five years ago. Mafex ain't invent shit, and their take on it looks nearly as bad.Revo TMNT predates even that Thor, and still has the best looking "spinning weapon" effect of everything mentioned here.
>>8591499Who cares. And nobody said anything about inventing shit. It's about Mafex vs Bandai, where Mafex has been one-upping Bandai with the Marvel line lately.
>>8591484looks like shit desu
>>8590172I think I prefer the new one myself but the older one definitely has some nice charm.Cue Bandai to make some slightly stylized Toku figures similar to what Gundam Universe is.
>https://cinema.tamashii.jp/feature/feature01/figure007/Was so stoked for the new sculpt Avengers Hulk, until I saw pic. Same with the "Hulk Smash" face. WTF were they thinking?
>>8591612He looks like he's pushing out a massive gamma radiation fart
>>8591612I like it myself, makes me think of Kirby Hulk
>>8591612>skipped all figma & SHF Hulks>almost bought the excellent SHF IW Hulk, but passed>still waited patiently for definitive Hulk>finally happened>and Bandai pulled this shitI've waited 8 fucking years for this?
>>8591674just realized that some of those fingers are articulated. rarely seen this for a SHF.
>Posting the marvel shite but not the actual decent announcement.
>>8591731>decent=mediocreOh look! Another shitty blank figure with pointless wire-frame gimmick with even less accessories. No wonder nobody gives a shit.
>>8591741I assume the "wire-frame" as you call it are points of reference for artists. It's a pretty neat drawing tool.
>>8590498Its dead due to mismanagement.
>>8591731Where can i preorder this?
>>8591824Seems to be a regular release, probably goes up along with all the other recent Figuart, Robot Damashii, etc announcements.
>>8591824Preorders start on the 2nd at the usual places
>>8591754>https://tamashii.jp/item_character/body/Figures are literally called ワイヤーフレーム (wireframe) dumbass. And no, only noobs & shit artists use these "tools".
>>8591341>>8591345>articulated fingers AND alternate fistsnice. articulated hands almost never make decent fistsi thought i was good with the Infinity War Hulk, but I might need this guy
>>8592015>only noobs and shit artists use referencessorry not everyone can freehand realistic masterpieces anon
When does Pacman go up for preorder?
>>8591754I guess it would be alright if you don't understand contouring and need to draw in those lines to help...but if you're at the stage where you don't understand contouring I doubt this would help you improve much.When I was young I also bought action figures to help me "understand how to draw anatomy," but they never really got me anywhere. I just ended up with a lot of bad drawings of toys.
>>8592158No idea lol
Looking forward to Izu next month.
>>8592345wish she were fatter
>>8591509>MUH CONSOLE WARSUnderage faggot
>>8592516this is /toy/ stupidgo back to /vg/
>>8592530you don't own toys
>>8560696WE'RE FINALLY GETTING A FUCKING PAC-MAN?
>>8591341Looks like a good figure but>Articulated fingersWhat is this, a Toybiz ML? Good thing I literally couldn't give less of a shit about capecrap I guess.
>>8592610Yea it's pretty nice huh?
>>8592720It's in addition to the regular open hands the Infinity War Hulk came with. I'm sure it's so he can properly hold Loki. They seem like a neat extra
FYI Bluefin has the brick walls on sale for $12.https://twitter.com/BluefinBrands/status/1331691632400293890
So is the Renewal Iron Man Mk 6 still a figure that holds up well over time? I hear complaints that the knee joint is susceptible to breaking.
Why is Tiger & Bunny so unloved?
>>8595275It was very well loved at the time. The reason there are so many figuarts still floating around was due to big print runs and reprints. And with no new material for years its popularity waned.
>>8595281Ah. Guess I got into it too late. Or maybe it's a good thing if it means getting cheap Figuarts.
>>8595275Because it was fujo pandering garbage.
>>8595305Yeah, that's a plus for you. They're still good figures.>>8595351Take off your blinders gramps. It was a pretty quality show for the most part. The sponsorship angle was pretty clever and fun too.
>>8595275Pretty sure sales will pick up once season 2 is released. Get on while it's cheap. The quality on these is amazing and blows most moderns SHFs out of the water.
Faye is waiting for release.
>>8590490My Momo's skin looks yelowish, maybe since she so old and probably one of my first figures (i planned collecting only demongirls haha, end up with a bunch random stuff). She is cutie and fun figure, though her skirt and panties too hard, compared to figma highscoolers, it little restrict her legs so she probably cant do sitting poses that easy. Her hands movement are pretty good, she have a (bicep?) swivel that helps articulation a lot. Dont know how darkness though.
Where the fuck is Pac-Man? Everyone was expecting it to get solicited right away, then nothing.
>>8596505You missed it
>>8590498Really wanted Sarada
>>8596481ha ha!girls pooping
>>8590490>no lala in her alien suiti'm still mad
Bring back Lupin!
>>8597128Ok, but Bandai has to drop either Dragonball, Star Wars or Marvel so they have the time to do Lupin. Do you still want it?
>>8597153Yeah they can drop Marvel and Star Wars and they can start Kinnikuman again too
>>8597153Dragonball is trash so definitely get rid of that.Also get rid of Marvel so we can have Grievous, Bespin Luke and all the rest of the most wanted SW characters.
>>8597153Their Star Wars and Marvel output are horribly phoned in so yeah I can live with that
>>8595902Cool, I picked one up yesterday. Also got sakura from blue fin for 30 and the last figuart gift for my secret santa anon
>>8597153Star Wars gets the rope
>>8595902>once season 2 is releasedDamn, is that really happening? 11 years is one hell of a break between seasons.
>>8597706Honestly when you consider some other popular titles that have come and gone or are still "ongoing", 11 years becomes not that uncommon give or take a few years.Haruhi S3, Lucky Star S2, Hidamari Sketch Post-Grad, Eva 4.0 the list goes on.
>>8597128agreed, just got mine today and it pains me to never have a Goemon
>>8597946>Haruhi S3, Lucky Star S2When were these announced? Don't fuck with my heart like that, anon
>>8597153Kill all of them and gimme more and better To Love-Ru figs.
>>8598396Ah shit, sorry for the misunderstanding. Those were used as just examples of content that fans of said series were waiting on to be announced but the amount of time since the last airing gets longer and longer.
>https://tamashii.jp/item/13462/Pre-orders for the Avengers starts tomorrow.Is this THE best Hulk that smashes the other Hulks on this scale?
>>8600623That ankle range looks bad. And the faces are kinda derp.
>>8600623why no arm or leg hair? they have the chest so might as well.
>>8600623Every single SHF Hulk face has been awful
>>8599726When you nut but she keeps sucking
>>8600800Present a good Hulk face / likeness in this scale. I'm sure someone will shit on it.
>>8600623This is a tough sell for me since the Infinity War version is so kino
>>8600781watch the film
>>8600623Can't help feeling the sculpt here is softer/more cartoony than the IW version which captured Ruffalo pretty well.Why is it always one step forwards two steps back with this company...
>>8601164That's how they make you rebuy the same figure that you bought two or three times before.
Should I go ahead and preorder Iron Man or is there a chance Bluefin will get him?
Started playing Monster Hunter World and I’ve fallen in love with Nergigante. Are the chances of him getting a Monsterarts high like those other 2?
>>8601859It's a general release so I'm sure they'll get it. They're just more picky with exclusives.
Took 20 minutes but I got my Hulk pre-order in with Amiami, I don't care much for live action stuff but he'll fit in great with my Mafex Spidey and Wolverine. Was holding out hope for a Mafex or import level comic Hulk but even if Medicom announced it today it wouldn't be out until 2022 at the earliest
>>8601919If the monsterarts line expands to elder dragons, nergigante has a very high chance. But considering how prickly nargacuga's rage mode tail is, I dread handling a nergi with its entire body covered in spikes.
Went ahead and got Eye-Ron Man because he'll actually be my first MCU Figuarts.
Finally checked out my Hulk. Good night and good luck.
>>8601979It’d either be him or Shera Ishvalda, and that fucker would be lovely posing wise with just his weird hand things alone. And yeah a figure of Nergigante could legally be considered a weapon.
>>8601969After years of waiting for my definitive Hulk, finally got my pre-order in. All's right with the world.
>>8602027I want that plush.
>>8602027Feels good manWith a nice range of expressions and articulated fingers, he looks like he'll have a lot of play value
>>8602027>definitive hulk>movie figure with some asshole’s likenessYikes
>>8602139MCU is bland
>>8602085Loki's dead expressionless face is great here.
>>8602251>>8602085"Well. Guess I'll die."
>>8600623Best body, arguably the least bad face sculpt. Looking at the listing, it seems there's a third head they haven't show yet.
>>8602305>it seems there's a third head they haven't show yet.It's all there: 交換用頭部パーツ2種 = 2 head replacement partsPlus the default head, that's total 3 heads; dat-ass face >>8591612 , hulk-smash- grin, & screaming head.While I agree this is probably the best Hulk body so far, the faces are a step down compared to IW's sculpt & execution.
>>8600623>Height: 20 cmSomehow this Hulk is 1 cm shorter than the previous Hulk.
>>8602348Shit. You're right about the heads shown, I thought the dat-ass and grin faces were the same at first.IW's Hulk faces looked even less like Ruffalo though.Well, maybe NOTA or Manipple will save the day.
>>8591356Is this a brand new sculpt? Besides the battle damaged parts obviously
>>8601859Bbts has all four for msrp so bluefin has them.
>>8602359>maybe NOTA or Manipple will save the day.KEK
>>8604155I literally just paid for something there like 15 minutes ago
>>8604156nvm, just forgot to cleanse my web cache.
>>8603752Just the head and chest it seems, only because they need it to be able to switch out.
>>8604392It really boggles me that Bandai still release this as a recolor exclusive even though the other 3《AVENGERS ASSEMBLE》figures are all regular retail releases. They love to pull this Ginyu-squad-odd-one-out shit, making it unnecessary annoying to complete it.
>>8604412Technically the Mark 6 is in a separate category compared to the 3 《AVENGERS ASSEMBLE》figures. The listing is [BATTLE DAMAGE] EDITION which would put it on the same category as the Mark 3 battle damage edition as well as the Mark 7 here >>8604392It was just very convenient for Bandai I'd assume to release the Mark 6 as regular release instead to coincide with the other 3 Avengers for the holy squad set and the fact that they decided to release the Mark 7 before this. As well as the Mark 6 technically in the same movie so it can technically be considered part of the squad.
>>8604599No anon, you got that wrong. Iron man mark 3 yes it is battle damage edition but the mark 7 identified as avengers assemble. Bandai could've made the mark 7 regular release to complete the true avengers assemble squad but for some reason decided to switch it with the mark 6 which should've been p-bandai like the mark 3.
>>8604619Oh, alright then. My bad, that's very jew of Jewdai then.
>>8604619Technically, that Mark III exclusive is not Battle Damaged edition, it's part of the《BIRTH OF IRON MAN》EDITION series, a recolor.>https://p-bandai.jp/item/item-1000146652
Technically, all these shit is confusing as fuck.
>>8562001Dudes, I still have hope.
Are these bootlegs or no? I just found out about the patlabor line.
>>8605843Hey buddy I think you got the wrong door. The RD general's two blocks down. >>8584327
Give me a fucking Fennec Shand SHF, Bandai.
>>8606456Nah, Chun-Li first
