>>85705416 months to go from product image at a con to actually having it in hand. Sometimes it’s a year, like with Strong Guy. Since it’s a teaser image, I’d be very surprised to have it before August 2021. >>8570584Yep, zero new tooling here. Same bodies as the Space Venom wave Miles and the Absorbing Man wave Gwen. That’s why the heads look like the comic style. Honestly they’re not bad figures but if you wanted figures from the movie, they suck as representations. And they were hard to find so now they cost a fortune.
We’re never getting a good Gwenpool, are we?
>>8570706Legends, I mean. The MAFEX one is great.
>>8570706>>8570708This is bait
>>8570708I have the Mafex one, its literally perfect
>>8570718No it isn’t. Legends Gwen is garbage. Both of her heads suck, she doesn’t come with an unmasked head, and her legs look horrible. The MAFEX one is perfect like the other Anon said.
>>8570749This is also bait
>>8570763I think you’re projecting what you’re doing onto me.
>>8570581Why is the Marvel General using a picture of Batman?
>>8570798It’s the Stiltman BAF from the ITSV wave
>>8570769I don't think you know what projection is.
>>8570804I don’t think you know what bait is. Quit fucking around Anon, we’re shitting up the thread. Just accept that I think Legends Gwenpool blows ass and that we’re unlikely to get a better one and move on.
I'm really glad I decided to get the rest of this wave, i love this lil gremlin
>>8570802wait, i thought that was someones shitty custom.I thought that Headie Brock meme was stupid, but this figure actually deserves one.That head is way too large for that body.
>>8570587Besides having a better facesculpt, and new alternate hand, is there anything else new about this Rogue?
>>8570763Bait for the one anon on this entire board who actually likes ML gwenpool, yes.
>>8570884Hasbro likes BIG heads and they cannot lie, all you import companies cannot deny, etc, etc.
>>8570863Jacket is a lighter brown and the yellow is actually yellow instead of the yellow-orange. Other than that, no.>>8570833He’s awesome. The hands are really fun. Gwenom is also really cool. I know they’re based on the cartoon, as is Cap, so while I don’t really want anymore cartoon figures, I wouldn’t mind a Venomized Spider Girl.
he looks hella fun, but why the jacket and shorts?
>maybe Miles wears the shorts so Gwen doesn't see him pitching a tent
I still don't understand what's wrong with him
look, he's got money
>>8570920>I still don't understand what's wrong with him>pic is literally holding a briefcase with his forearms instead of in his hands
spider-verse wave 2 hopes?hard mode: no kingpin BAF
>>8570932Now do this pose
>>8570835>hating StiltManGood...more ninjas and leg extensions for the rest of us.
>>8570928it's a bit tough because while they did a Sp//dr already as a BAF, it doesn't look at all like the animated version. My dream wave for a volume 2: Liv Octavius Peter B. Parker (full suit w/alternate Squiny Eyes head) Miles Morales (full suit) Peni Parker (fully articulated so she can do spider poses like pic related) Spider-Man Noir Aunt May Build-A-Figure Sp//dr but the Spiderverse version, and have multiple faceplates for the emoji faces (probably packed in with Peni since she'll be a smaller figure)
>>8570940Sometimes it's a wonder how these plebs keep breathing
>>8570928>Olivia Octavius>Peter Parker/Spider-Man (with an alternate unmasked head)>Peni Parker>Noir>Tombstone>Miles in the full suit (with an alternate expression)>BAF SP//DR
>>8570951Man, look at that Gwens legs, I wish hasbro would just give us a new sculpt already
>>8570951I’d swap out Aunt May for Spider-Man 2099, for funsies.
>>8570928>spider-verse wave 2 hopes?That it doesn't happen. Gun to my head I'd be good with an Octavius figure, but other than that, I'm good. Every character design in that movie ranged from meh to garbage.
>>8571113They're going to milk that movie in terms of Marvel Legends. But if they keep giving me Daredevil villains in the mix, that's fine.
>>8570922FOUR HUNDRED THOUSAND STILT DOLLARS
Peni will either be a super womanlet new mold or a static figure like Ham.
>>8570913>the junkie outside of the gas station when he sees me pay with cash after I told him i didn't have any
Finally got my Movie venom and damn this guy doesn't even feel like a marvel legends. I wish they all were like him
>>8571161I want to get that figure because it looks really good, and do what a bunch of people have and add the spider logo to him, but I'd be willing to bet money that Hasbro is going to do that exact thing at some point. It's to easy of a cash grab for them to pass up on.
>>8570724I've been stalking Manda for one for awhile.
>>8570920Who do I need to sacrifice to get a high end figure of this design?
>>8571113Yeah we get it you have bad taste.
>>8571173I actually liked the movie so I dont mind the lack of it but I doubt they made this whole new body not to make a comic venom out of it
>>8571113>Gun to my headBetter yet, just do us a favor and pull the trigger yourself.
>>8571146If you are paying with high Bill's and get no change then fuck em.
Why does my Legends Ben Reilly’s left wall crawling hand fall out so easily? Is this a known issue with this Scarlet Spider or am I just a retard?
>>8571161He his really good, my favorite non Baf ML I own
>>8571284He really could of used some kind of weapon or even Riots spike.
>>8570915Watch the movie dumbass
>>8570951>it doesn't look at all like the animated versionbecause it's not
>>8571143>super womanlet new moldhopefully reusable for SpOck's midget gf who was the one good thing Slott added to the mythos
>>8569271>Imagine being so much of a lazy, miserable shit heel that you can't take 30 sec. to find the best one among the bunchYou truly deserve every cancerous, quality-control riddled piece of shit that comes your way.
>>8571284>favorite non baf ml is a venom thst doesn't have butterfly jointssorry to hear you lost your sense of taste to covid anon
>>8571367>that I ownI dont buy every single Ml anon.
>>8571371Neither do I but I definitely own better MLs than that one
>>8571373And I don't, my point is still valid from my perspective.
>>8571375Do you own like five toys?
>>8571377Yes, I own exactly 5 toys.
>>8571377You sound like you have poor hygiene and hardly ever see the light of day.
>>8571348Fuck off back to /co/mblr, everything from the Superior era sucks
>>8571377Who gives a shit how many toys someone has?
>>8571377Anon, I know you substitute toys for real people (having relationships with real people IS hard work, after all) but you're pathetic.
this thread's taking a dark turn. >>8571346fuck off you know what I meant.
>>8570915I like it, it makes miles feel a bit more unique visually
>>8571429I just like shortstacks anon
>>8571427Every toy you posted, even the McFarlane trash, is better than your favorite ML Venom
>>8571458Thats your opinion, i also never stated it was better then anything, just my favorite ML that i happen to own.
>>8570581Lol Amazon had Thanos back in stock for 10 seconds. Man are scalper bots fast.
Found a peg of Nega Spidey at Target. I like him. Didn't get flagged either so I guess no street date?
>>8571186Don't get me wrong I liked the movie but a lot of the designs were just lame cartoonish garbage or really ugly weird fucking ideas like Scorpion.>>8571177>>8571214Cope
>>8571578neat. yeah I think it'll look better in hand than the product shots. Target listing says they'll start shipping on the 29th https://www.target.com/p/hasbro-marvel-legends-6-34-spider-man-vintage-collection-figure/-/A-80173141#lnk=sametab
>>8571578>Pizza Spidey moldmeh, I'll grab him if i see him in store, not gonna work too hard at finding him.
>>8571602Why is everyone acting like Pizza Spidey is easy and cheap to find, where the fuck are people finding Pizza Spidey so easily for seemingly decent (i.e., sub-$40) prices??
>>8571626It's not that Pizza Spidey is cheap, it's that they have a much better new mold in the new Retro Spidey and they should just use that for Spider-Men going forward. Also if you wanted a cheaper Pizza spidey, the one from the first Retro Avengers wave was fairly easy to acquire for a while.
>>8571632I’m the Anon from the last thread who doesn’t follow Legends and just wants to collect a small Spider-Man family so I wouldn’t have known about it at release. I’d just get the retro one but the pizza Spidey has more hands and heads that I enjoy. I guess some eBay sellers just sell various Spidey hands though, so I suppose it probably shouldn’t be too hard to just buy more hands and color match them, I’ll probably end up doing that for Kaine since he doesn’t come with thwipping hands.
>>8571644Also is a pair of thwip hands even worth $13? eBay seller accepts offers but I don’t know how low is too low of an offer for a $13 pair of hands off of a $20 toy.
>>8571663 gotta watch not all hands are compatible across MLs. you could probably get a loose pizza spidey with all the hands/heads for $30-$40 if you look at ebay a lot
Best Spidey coming through. Such a missed opportunity
>>8571578This looks bad but the negative zone pizza slice is hilarious
>>8570961Suited Tombstone with one Spider-verse head and one Sal Buscema smirking head to satisfy both Spider-verse fans and real Spider-man fans.
>>8570581If anyone try’s getting Thanos from Amazon good luck it’s fucked. Whenever you try to add it to cart for preorder it says “empty cart” fuck that shit. Fuck Amazon and their retarded website
What could this mean?
>>8571811Nothing. Marvel's been doing action figure variants for a while now. There's no correlation between them and real figures being made. If there was we'd have Robbie Reyes and the Hellcharger by now.
>>8571807Scalping bots can hit probably any site, not Amazon’s fault.
>>8571820>a multi million company can’t afford better security.It’s 100% their fault for being incompetent
>>8571429>"Superior run is le bad"Boy, I'm glad I evolved past this. Let me guess, you're in that rare group of people who think OMD and BND are good?
>>8571833HES EVOLVING! GET HIM!!!!!
>>8571833Not him but Superior is trash for a lot of the same reasons OMD was.Spider-Man as a whole has pretty consistently been awful since OMD, with a few exceptions on books Slott wasn't writing. Things are finally really looking up for the first time in over a decade with Spencer's Spider-Man run.
>>8571818I hate those covers. Why don't they ever make them look like an actual Marvel Legends figure? They always give the character those crappy McFarlane/DC Super Heroes style hips, and worst of all, they often give the "figure" an amazing amount of accessories that Hasbro wouldn't even dream of offering.
>>8571845The artists they have drawing them don't seem to actually know anything about action figures. They straight up draw the character in a neutral pose and draw on cuts. And yeah the accessory counts would be unrealistic even for most imports at this point.
>>8571824>implying it’s a security issueNigga these people just run a script on their PC to buy a particular item as soon as possible, simple as. Quit being obtuse.
>>8571851I’m more of acute but ok lol
>>8570833i reeeally like the head articulation on that guy. ive never owned an ML that could look up before.
>>8570951I want a Spider-Ham that's actually good.
>>8570581imma use my stiltman body with my lilandra head
Looks like I found the new Gwenpool
>>8571968except that’s a better figurehell it’s even a better character
>>8571673they gave us those shoulders with the most recent Vulture figure, but for some reason the butterfly joints on mine don’t want to move. oh well, what could’ve been
>>8572032Gwenpool as a character is fanfic-tier but her actual series is fun and worth reading. Marvel should’ve done a better job at advertising that she isn’t Gwen Stacy (despite initially appearing as such on that Secret Secret Wars cover), and shouldn’t have tied her existence to Deadpool when the two have nothing to do with one another except for the time Deadpool beats the shit out of her.
>>8571833You guessed wrong faggotStay mad that your shitty self insert story of being a fatass and stealing a Chads body is shit anon>>8571843This nigga gets it
>>8570920>>8570922>It's the destro briefcaseHahahahahah
>>8571845>>8571848official reason is to avoid any claims of design theft
>>8571242Wrap some dental floss around the peg.
>>8572143only it's not
>>8572143Destro's also had a computer and the money was different. There was also a Cobra logo on it.
>>8572124> Stay mad that your shitty self insert story of being a fatass and stealing a Chads body is shitYou really think this is why people liked the story? Projection much dude?
>>8572390Shhh, he's retarded
>>8570581Do any other figures use the harness the Walgreens Punidger has?
>>8571463that venom looks great
>>8571838Too late, I'm 500 IQ points ahead of the thread!>>8571843At the beginning of the run, yes it was just as insufferable as OMD. When we reached that half a year mark with Otto parading as Peter, it began to feel interesting. Spencer's run has some hiccups, I'm not saying Superior Spider-Man didn't either, but wasn't as bad as >>8572124 sad sack will tell you, they probably didn't even read it past the first few issues. >>8572384I've never been fat my entire life, nor do I inspire to steal a Chad's body lmao, they''re definitely projecting and it's pathetic. I liked the story because it was something fresh, not entirely new but interesting.
So which one do I keep? I feel like the BAF will get an inevitable reissue on a retro card or something so might as well sell it now. Though admittedly I do like the rage face
Anybody have any experience with Entertainment Earth? They're selling the Hulk/Wolverine two pack for $45 not-mint.
>>8572680Go for it
What Spiderman figure should I get? I’m gonna get into the figure collecting and I want a Spiderman. Which is the best one to get now?
>>8572709Half Spider-Man Half Asian from McDonalds!
>>8572709The retro wave spider-man is subjectively the "best" spider-man because it has an added diapgragm joint. Though its neck and hip joints are limited compared to passed spider-menFailing that, Spider-Man from the Hobgoblin BAF wave, colloquially known as 'Pizza Spider-Man' would be another subjective bestUnless you weren't just talking about Legends, then the 1st release Mafex is the best
>>8572622It’s literally just “what if Spider-Man was evil and this isn’t just a shitty throwaway what if story”. I don’t know why people were pissed when it happened, and I don’t know why people still think it’s a completely worthless Spider-Man story after half a decade of him doing the same shtick with relatively little innovation. Slott’s not amazing but Superior Spider-Man is actually different and interesting, and Slott may not write a great Peter but his Doc Ock is far better than most. Plus he made him an actually cool villain, instead of “The Wizard but he has metal arms”.
>>8572637Just keep the rage face if you like it so much and sell it with the other head it came with
Take this shit to >>>/co/ you absolute faggots
>>8572680They are legit
>>8571968Part of me wishes I gave a shit about Silver Centurion.
>>8572746But what would be the point of having a rage face with no rhino body to attach it to
>>8572769you could always dremmel it out and put it on the select
>>8571968That'd be the IM 2020, though people might start buying him for the meme factor.
>>8572722It would have made far more sense for Marvel to have pushed an Asian Spider-man over Miles. There's a far larger market for it, and Peter's traits (assuming they want to keep it similar to Peter's) of a science-loving acrobat would be very relatable to the average Chang. But unfortunately in Marvel's world there are only white and black and green characters.
>>8570581That stilt man head could be a really good 90s Wally West head
>>8572832And given the size, it could even fit proportionally on a McFarlane DC figure.
>>8572824There’s three black people for every Asian person in America. Bump that number up to six if you include Hispanic or Latino, which I do since Miles is half Latino, half black. And the comics are being sold largely in America.
>>8572835I was thinking of making a custom 90s Wally. But I have never customized a figure before
>>8572847The new Miles Morales game is racist. Not all black people like fucking rap. Typical white fags think they know black people.
>>8572847I'm willing to bet the expendable income of the average American Asian would make up for their smaller numbers.
>>8572813Don’t worry Anon, the same shit happens over in Transformers General, you get assblasted for talking about the comics and cartoons, but the catch is only the major autists do the Ass blasting so it’s easy to just ignore them
>>8572813This is a thread for toys, not comics. Retard
>>8572942I'd venture to say that most of the 57 posters do not have mod powers here. If anything usually attempting to police a discussion only makes it go on for longer.
>>8572813>Why should I take my discussion about comics to a board about comics? I'd rather discuss comics on a board dedicated to toysNo wonder the death rate in the US is skyrocketing.
>>8572942Toys based on… Wait for it… COMICS! Retard.
Is only half the spiderverse wave on amazon?
Found this in stores today. Happy I was able to find something without driving around a bunch for once.
>>8573037I feel like a custom with lines could look good. Would need a very steady hand though
>>8573053Yeah that would be cool, definitely not something I could do though.
>no current income source>watching eBay auction>probably the only toy I can afford to dip into savings for until I get a job or get Christmas money from family>want to drive around to stores to look for other figures I want for my collection but know I shouldn’t spend on them right nowPlease Home Depot respond to my application, I just want money again so I can indulge in my hobbies
>>8573062rooting for you anon
>>8573062Good luck anon. About 10 years ago I was in your position. Busted my ass for a while, now I have a good job and buy more toys than anyone should.
>>8573072>>8573069Thanks fellas, appreciate it If they ever get back to me about my app they’ll probably hire me since I’m able to give them Saturdays now unlike last time I applied because my seasonal job was only open on weekends at that point. I just hope I don’t end up hating the job.
>>8572682>>8572750placed the order, shit feels good bros.
>>8573062Too bad us poorfags can't torrent toys, huh?
>>8573152I’ll tell you tomorrow around noon after I know whether or not I’ve won the auction.
Whaddya say fellas, is this a good pose?
>>8573162Shit wrong picture, this is what I meant, had Scarlet Spider on the brain and jumped the gun
>>8573163I recognize those wings.
>>8573171It was one time Anon, one timeI don’t even watch the anime, I just wanted to build the cool beginner-level wing mech
>>8573173Not shaming you bruh.It was my favorite Gundam for a long time, then I grew to recognize the superior version of it.Now I have the top of my dresser full of /a/, /co/, /m/, /sw/, and there is even a /v/ or two up there as well. I really need to get them shelved into groups.
>>8573192I think I’d be more into the hobby if I owned that gunpla model cement stuff. I’ve been slowly building a Frame Arms Girl since last Christmas and am at my wit’s end with the thing because parts just fall off randomly. Are the Furai Transformers kits any good, do you know?
>>8573200I do not know.I will say that I had a friend bring me a gunpla of the OG Gundam, and between the one of it, Wing Zero, and another from IBO, I only needed crimper to cut pieces from the frames, and tweezers to help place smaller decals, and they all hold together like a figure. The only one I have ever had issues with was a cheap 4" one the same friend brought me the first time she went to Japan almost 20 years ago.
>>8573062Just remember that most In demand Marvel characters get remade to death so you shouldn’t rush on those and most obscure ones never reach any demand.
>>8573201I've probably just been awake too long, but this shit is cracking me up for some reason.
>>8573223Yeah, it’s just that some molds are better than others, and the better molds of in-demand characters tend to become more expensive on the aftermarket. Personally, I think they should just take the best molds of their most iconic characters, i.e. Spidey, Venom, Avengers, Wolverine, Cyclops, and just indefinitely produce them as part of their own ongoing Legends line, but I know they’ll never do that.
>>8573247It would be too expensive on a per-character budget unfortunately.
>>8573062if it's been about a week's time you should give them a call - most employers will see that as a positive and it'll show that you're serious about wanting the job
>>8572965yeah, so post about toys based on comics. not hard to understand.
>no more most of overused characters>no mote MCU crapWhat are the chances of getting X-men Evolution figures?i would fucking die for ML figures of Evolution. series still holds up up to this day and designs are greatAll evolution figures are outdated and expensive.I so want Toad and Nightcrawler.
Were there any particularly bad QC issues with this figure? I've never really been a huge fan of Hasbro's collector's lines but it's pretty slim pickings out there for this particular Daredevil design and the Mezco looks way too frumpy for the cost, so I've been looking at just tracking down one of these.
>>8570920the suitcase is for Stiltman! Give it back!
>>8573582shoulder joint on mine is a bit loose, fantastic fig anyway.still need Luke Cage.
>>8572889Imagine collecting figures based on a property you don't read, watch, or engage with. >>8572942Like this based retard.>>8572957>"M-mods! There are posters talking about comic books in the thread about toys based on comic books!">>8572964See above, I didn't mention the comic Superior Spider-Man is based on. Another sad and flabby anon did, I'm just dunking on the weak argument they presented. In fact, I hope they do an updated version of Sp-Ock.
>>8573508I’m worried that I might be flagged in their system or something since I did interview with them about a month or two ago and didn’t get the job due to availability issues that I no longer have. Of course, they’d have known it was an issue and would know now that it isn’t an issue if they had actually read the availability on my application, but that’s besides the point.
>>8573582>>8573610All I ask is for one more 2-pack for the Netflix shows that will now never be made. That 2-pack is black suit Daredevil and Wilson Fisk.
>>8573581Human KurtSchool clothes ToadX-23Civilian clothes Danielle MoonstarGoth RogueWolverineBAF BlobAmazon Teen Girl Squad box set
>>8573610Eh, floppy joints are kinda what I expected, but as long as it wasn't known for horrible paint fuck ups or anything like that I'll go ahead and grab one. I really love that suit.>>8573770Honestly I'm genuinely surprised we never got that. It's not like the show wasn't a success, even with the slump in season two, and Hasbro's made some far more niche characters.
>>8573799I know, it's baffling. By far the best product with Marvel's name on it and we never got the main hero in his main suit and the main villian of the series. And now there will never be another show like Daredevil.
>>8573778>Human Kurt>School clothes Toad>X-23>Civilian clothes Danielle Moonstar>Goth Rogue>Wolverine>BAF BlobWHEN~~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
>>8573816Alright that's pretty rad I'm not gonna lie.
>>8573582I went through ~4 of them because my first copy had a weird elongated bicep that couldn't get fixed no matter what I didThen the other three had varying degrees of floppy right shoulder joints, with the last one I got being at least somewhat tolerable (though I went in and put some gel glue to help tighten it)Still think it's a nice figure tho, just a weird bout of QC in my area I guess. He might be a bit pricey now too.
Which thwip hands if any are compatible with SP//DR Kaine and where might I get them for cheap?
>>8571359>>8571352>>8571377 It's truly no wonder >>8571288 is easily impressed, and thinks Venom is superb anon.
>>8573988You want to try that again champ? I cannot make heads or tails of what you are trying to say.
>>8571359There's nothing wrong with his figure dude.
>>8573858Take regular spidermans thwip hands, strip the weblines with acetone, marker or paint the black parts
>>8571175sentinel, hopefully it will be their third release after miles and peter
>>8573816>DeadpoolWhy do they do this to us? Give us any zombie! Just anyone but Deadpool
>>8571775>negative zone pizzaWhole wheat crust, onions cheeze, tofu pepperoni?
>>8573610That Luke Cage 2 pack has been on Amaazon.com for cheap for quite a while. Used to cost like 19 bucks
>>8571791That might not work, Spider-Verse TB didn't wear a tie
>>8571968I thought Walgreens distro centers get a whole case, then break that down to 2-3 figures per store.
>>8572722wait, which half?
>>8574033So you too lack any sort of discernment and therefore taste. Gotcha, understood.
>>8573240What's funnier, that or Espada japonesa?
>>8574197Not that Anon but no you’re just autistic or retarded, can’t decide which
>>8572824Feel obliged to post
>>8574198That’s wrong... they are both katanas
>>8570961Bonus points if the alt Spider-Man is blonde
>>8574197Are you having a mental breakdown?
>>8574198They're not wrong, though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhUIU_CD82I
>>8574279Wakizashi is a shorter katana. One of the swords is shorter.
>>8573152The toy is SP//DR wave Kaine and I won him for $20.50 + $4.50 shipping -$5.00 eBay voucher so $20 total.
>>8573581>What are the chances of getting X-men Evolution figures?Probably zero. At best I can see them doing a season 1-2 Wolverine in the orange costume but that's kind of it. It's a great show but traditional X-Men fans hated it when it came out and never gave it a chance, so it's always carried this weird stigma of being the redheaded stepchild of X-Men shows. Incidentally, Wolverine and the X-Men was made by the exact same creative team except they had much less creative freedom. So if WATX feels like it was designed by committee at Marvel to shove in as much shit as possible, it's because it literally was.
>>8574370That was my implication GameStop has the Sentinel Spider-Verse Miles Morales for $79 (that will include free shipping). If you have Honey installed, you can opt to get a giftcard and save another $6, you'd just basically pay for the figure now instead of later. I grabbed it and cancelled my Mafex order.
Are Amazing Yamaguchi figures good for male characters too, or are they just glorified coomer toys?
>>8575367if you like the stylization (not everyone does) and like doing extreme poses, AY figures are the most based figures on the market
>>8575367what gave you the idea that they're coomer toys? But yeah what you see is what you get with the AY toys. I have greatly enjoyed my AY Spider-Man but it did take a few days of in-hand posing to get used to the revo joints. I'm less thrilled with the AY Venom because he falls apart easy (I guess because his parts are chunky).
>>8570920What's wrong with him is that Hasbro cheaped out as usual. Spider Verse was incredibly stylized, and Hasbro knew they wouldn't be able to reuse those molds for anything else, so they just used their standard buck and proportions, which looks totally wrong. Even then, they could maybe have still pulled this mess out by exaggerating the size of his hands and feet more, but nah, they're still half-trying to adhere to the relatively realistic style standard they've set for Marvel Legends. It's just a half-assed product.
>>8574857WATX never did it for me so I guess I understand why now
>>8575234I have the Mafexes on preorder, but god damn, this actually looks even better. My only real issue is that I don't care for the sorta dopey expression that they gave his unmasked head, and he only comes with one (Mafex has one with the mask rolled up as well).The sculpted clothes actually look great though, and all the clothing colors are more accurate than the Mafex.
>>8575475One thing I am really happy about is this means we (maybe) get one more crack at a good high-quality Gwen. I was really displeased with the sculpt of the Mafex, and Hasbro's is obviously not even in the running.
>>8575367All of them except Spider-Man are great
>>8575367They're some of the worst Marvel figures you can lose money on. Just awful.
>>8575367The engineering is top notch, Yamaguchi's figures always have insane poseability in mind and are engineered toward that end (sometimes to the detriment of gappiness/sculpt, but this has gotten a lot better in recent years). If you want figures that can do incredibly deep, compressed poses that pretty much no other line on the market can manage, then yeah, this is the line for you.
>>8575505In other words, stay away from it. The line sucks.
>>8575475Yea ideally I wanted both but I think the Sentinel just cuts a really nice silhouette, especially with the knees. And while it's probably minor to others, the fact that they gave him the cartoony looking fingers on the alt hands is the detail that settled it for me. I also like his accessories more. I wish he did have more faces but eh, I can deal with is. There's some good 3D models of the characters out there that I'm betting some third party guys might make some alternate heads.Also since I'll have the Legends Peter B Parker for now, the sculpted clothes will mesh together better when they're on display together. I hope Sentinel does their own Peter and Gwen and hopefully Olivia. I'll definitely grab them.
>>8575509Maybe we have very different metrics for what makes a toy suck, but I think I laid out the positives and negatives of the line pretty well. Anon can make up their own mind from there. Like >>8575490 said, aside from Spider-Man, which was the first figure and had some truly bizarre design decisions, I have found most of them to be very enjoyable and dynamic figures with endless play and posing value. If you're not into that, and want a really "perfect" looking figure with no seams or obvious gaps and shit that can just sit in a Detolf looking nice, then maybe it's not the line for you.
>>8575522Gambit is literally one of the worst looking, clunky pieces of shit from AY.
>>8575519>the fact that they gave him the cartoony looking fingers on the alt hands is the detail that settled it for meNo no! That was also one of the crucial selling points for me! The Mafex hands look kind of generic, flat, and pseudo-"realistic," like they didn't really stylize them and they feel too small. Sentinel really put some nice angularity into the fingers and the base of the thumb where it meets the palm, you can feel the compressed energy there. A good hand sculpt is really important to me, hands are such expressive things and add so much to a figure.
>>8575535I guess I didn't make it clear, I'm saying I like the cartoony hands the Sentinel hands over the Mafex generic ones.
>>8575522>Spider-Man, which was the first figure and had some truly bizarre design decisionsSpidey was second actually. Deadpool was first and featured none of the mind-boggling aesthetic choices
>>8575530Like nearly any Yamaguchi figure, Gambit can be intentionally posed like a gappy piece of shit, or like a beacon of dynamicism. I can intentionally make pretty much all my Yamaguchi figures look awful on camera if I want to.But I digress, you don't really want a discussion. You want to deliver short, punchy statements that lack info or justification. You're just stirring the pot, basically.>>8575538Ah, yeah, I forgot that Deadpool actually came first. What a weird situation, especially since DP already worked fine. I suppose it is possible both were in development separately for a while and Deadpool just hit the market first?
>>8575537Lol, that's the same thing I'm saying bro, read my post again. Sentinel's hands look awesome, I was agreeing with you.
>>8575546Oh shit, you're right. That's what happens when I try to read and listen to my wife at the same time
>>8573610Ollie's has the LC 2 pack for 12.99 plus you can get a 15% off coupon for signing up for their email
>>8575560Women do tend to ruin things
>>8575543You make it sound like Yamaguchi figures aren't for everyone and if you're not good at posing you won't enjoy them
>>8573062Dead body clean upHigh payout, no experience required, not even high school, maybe a drivers license, always looking for new workers
>>8575977A lot of excuses for bad figures
>>8574189the half that is an emmisary from hell
>>8575984Downside: you will never feel clean again, and will see things on the inside of your eyelids when you lie down to go to sleep that you wish you could forget.
>>8576195Do you want your toys OR NOT
>>8570581If you don’t have Deluxe Thanos preordered by now you better hurry. Amazon, Target and other online retails are selling out. Sure it be back but who knows when.
>>8575977I sorta do think Yamaguchi figures aren't for everyone. The super stylized sculpts aren't everyone's bag, and like I noted, very visible joints and occasional gappiness aren't really seen as a huge problem for the line, it's all in service of the range of motion. He also has this problem less these days, but a lot of his older sculpts especially flat out look bad when standing in a boring "neutral" stance. They're made to be dynamically posed, and if not used as such, can look like crap.You can still enjoy them if you're not great at posing. But that is where the most enjoyment for them lies. And if you already know that you would rather have a more "display" type figure, it's probably best to gravitate towards that rather than figures that don't mind looking very toyetic for the sake of features you don't even care about.
I was going through some old boxes of figures from when I was a kid and I think I found a figure of Brazilian Spider-man
>>8574857>At best I can see them doing a season 1-2 Wolverine in the orange costume but that's kind of itIsn't X23 from the show? What are the odds of a "first appearance" figure for her?
>>8574857>Incidentally, Wolverine and the X-Men was made by the exact same creative team except they had much less creative freedom. So if WATX feels like it was designed by committee at Marvel to shove in as much shit as possible, it's because it literally was.x-men evolution is awesome because1) the unique designs2) 00s aestetics with goths and trashy looking teenagers of that era3) the relationship of people of that age and the whole idea of feeling like an outcast/minorities problems because X-men usually was talking about these issues a lot so many fans could relate to that (from lonely nerds to actual minorities)WATX is just a lame souless superhero tv-show...>you will never have cool articulated Sabretooth from x-men evolution
>>8576224Probably slim. She's regarded as the breakout character of the show and there's a misconception that her popularity led to her being imported to 616 Marvel, but X23 was only in two episodes and didn't really make much of an impression on people. The only reason she was brought into the mainstream comics was because Marvel realized they could cash in on the idea of a female Wolverine. She was significantly redesigned as well, so if they wanted to make an Evo version they'd need to make it a unique mold. As it is, X23 as a whole isn't as big a deal as she used to be so there's not much of a chance of her getting the Deadpool "we need to make every variation" treatment. Also the real breakout character on the show was their version of Toad. He stole every scene he was in.
>>8575543>Gambit can be intentionally posed like a gappy piece of shit, or like a beacon of dynamicism.read>Revoltechs can look like beacons of dynamism if you only look at it from one angle because the joints are gapey from many angles, requiring you to hide the gaps and gapes in very specific poses that might hide them from a few angles.
>>8576539holy shit that back what the fuck.I'm ok with everybody's choice of toy but don't anybody ever come at me saying the revo is better than the Marvel Legends
>>8576721I don't think it's really that bad, but the fronts always get me asking why.Shit like her knees being hollow voids just looks disgusting, as bad as any of the old 10" PAKs with their peanuts knees.The 1000toys Hellboy was going to have disgusting shit like this, but so many fans complained that they had to make a running change on it.
>>8576745>I don't think it's really that bad
>>8576780Ok, Timmy. Don't get shot.
>>8576721>holy shit that back what the fuck.Every toy from that company looks ugly as fuck due to joints.
>>8576539Fuck off subjectcunt
>>8576745Oh shit, I was going to buy her and Gwenpool and maybe fuck around and put them in a compromising pose together once I had the funds for it, thanks for helping me dodge that bullet Anon
>>8576539>from my very first post I made a point to say that Revoltechs can do very dynamic poses, but often at the cost of aesthetics>now you come at me saying the same thing and treating it like some sort of “gotcha” momentoh yes, anon, you sure got me.
>>8576745Her knee is not meant to be bent like that. You bend the big, non-gappy ball to its furthest first, then the smaller one as additional bend if you need it. Harley in particular also has the knee pad which obviously does not conform to the shape of a knee because a knee pad is not a knee.
>this toy looks dumb if i intentionally pose it wrong so it's objectively bad>every toy should be a barely articulated mcstatue that prioritizes sculpt over articulation
>>8576771Yes, it does look bad, but it's teh back. It's okay to do weird shit at the back, because you don't really get to see the back of teh figure in most poses. This is why a lot of lines have ugly shit hanging out back there.Obviously, the Revoltech is worse than most than most, but you should never fuck with the figure from the front.>>8576920>you're not meant to use the articulation like thatlolThen why do it at all then? Tons of lines can do a 90° knee like you're doing and a lot of lines can do greater than that with a simple double joint, WITHOUT having a hollow socket that's obviously meant to house a chainsaw missile.
>>8576539Oh look. It's subjedtreTodd.
welcome back to 2014, where we're still debating/arguing/discussing revoltech. i wish there was a "what's the best iron man" theme instead.
>>8576969You keep reposting that particular Harley pic when you can totally accomplish the same range of movement without leaving a gappy mess. Just because you can fiddle with something and make it look shitty, doesn't mean it's meant to work like that. It's very clearly supposed to bend like in >>8576920. I don't know what you think you're accomplishing by reposting it all the time.
When I was a kid it seemed all the stores had were the female legends figures. No one ever bought them. Now it's like they're the fastest sold and highest value.
>>8576997Oh look, it's you again. Ready to start trolling and calling everyone Subjectanon.
>>8577080Lurk moar newfag
>>8577003>you can't pose your toy however you want>you need to pose it to this very specific set of angles and only view it from this specific perspective>then your toy will not look like an ugly gapey mess, you bigoted shitlordI'm sorry, Yamaguchi-sama.I'll make sure to tell everyone that they can't bend their figures knees too far back and make it look like cosplaying thot amputee using a set of prosthetic legs, instead of representing Harley Quin who still has both her natural legs.
>>8577125I'm just pointing out that you are posting an image where the knee is gappy, but there have been numerous examples that you can achieve the same range of motion as in your image, without leaving a gappy knee. It makes your entire argument pretty much moot. Sorry that those toys are too complex for someone as low IQ as you subjectdumdum.
>>8577139are you a blind retard who can't angles?>>8576920has it bending at a little more than 90°. while https://is2.4chan.org/toy/1605946654774.jpg is almost like 10° It's almost doubling back.Big difference, retard, and most figures can do it without being a gaping mess like so much of Yamaguchi's transformer looking clusterfuck loosely tied together pieces.
>>8577158But when Todd does it with >>8534384 right?
>>8577168>retard has his back against the wall>can't lie anymore>time to shitpost by using bait thread as proof of anythinglol
>>8577194not an argument subjectreTodded
>>8577213inb4 he argues with us for another 18 hours about whether or not Carnage has a mouth.
>>8577213>>8577221Get fucked you trolling shits. You purposely do this
>>8577222LURK MOAR YOU FUCKING NEWFAG!!!
>>8577226It's just subjectanon samefagging, ignore him
You know... not EVERY thread on this site has to devolve into a petty argument about nothing.What’s the most obscure character you want a figure of? I can think of a few, maybe even too many in fact. I call this wave: “Wait... who? Are these even Marvel?”
Oh the face does look better than the promos made it to be. Nice.
>>8577331why does it look matte
>>8576969The knees look perfect well beyond 90º though. The real gapage only starts close to 180º at which point no knee looks good.
Have a bonus pic of Psylocke with arms crossed while I'm at it. Her shoulders look worse than the average figure, but she can do fucking this.
>>8577270Okay, I recognize Solarr (JUST because he was on X-Men that one time), The Dreadnought, seen guy on the bottom left, but who the hell is top left and Human Ice Torch Man?Top right was in Byrne Fantastic Four, right?
>>8577469thank you for proving my picture.it starts to gape at when it needs almost double over, and pretty dumb when theres plenty of figures with double jointed knees that dont look like theyre falling apart with the same level of knee bendingnessi cant say anytjing about that psylocke though, aside from her ugly face, but thats just my opinion
>>8577535They don’t ever NEED to double over you fucking retard, go back to /pol/ or whatever retarded little shithole you crawled out of, get a hobby, go outside, do SOMETHING other than sitting at your computer desk pissing yourself laughing at how epically you’re trolling le nerds on a goddamn anime forum. It’s pathetic. You are pathetic. I almost feel bad for you.
>>8577535why do you ignore the proof that it still has the same range of movement without getting gapped up?
>>8577563only person ignring proof is you and that other guy who seems to be a newfagnice gap, blindy
>>8577586>this shit againShe’s wearing kneepads, you neckbearded goblin
>>8577586Proof of what? That picture isn't any more gappy than a double jointed knee with kneepads.
Wish you retards had this kind of energy towards standard double joints which look like shit 100% of the time
>>8577605Weird, my Rhino wave Ben Reilly’s knees look fine, see >>8573163
>>8577595like i said, it makes it look like it's a prostitute's prosthetic leg.shit like that shouldn't be seen from the front, which so many figures are able to hide pretty well and still have the same range as thatsilohette wise it creates a look like the leg is hanging by a tendon. unnatural as fuck, but that's just how yamaguchi loves to engineer his transformers.
>>8577516In order from the top left:Sunstroke - A criminal frequently operating out of the American Southwest, he can absorb sunlight and use it in a variety of way like blinding light or heat projection. He uses said heat projection to create updrafts and fly. He frequently shows up almost as an “Easter egg” in splash pages of evil teams like Red Hood’s gang and the Masters of Evil. Nebulon - part of an alien race that appears human but is actually a giant golden cephalopod. His race hunts the Galaxy for planets to strip of their resources. Super strong, super durable and able to project and manipulate various energies like solar blasts and generic Star-beams. It took the entire might of the Defenders and Avengers, along with his own wife’s betrayal, to end him.Doctor Sun - Chinese scientist that developed a process to sustain a human brain in a robotic suit but was betrayed and used as the first test subject. Consequently, developed psychic powers from the experiment and forced to survive on human blood. Given his need for blood he reasoned that vampires would make a suitable army, so he went to war with Dracula. Eventually his mind was trapped in H.E.R.B.I.E and the FF4 killed him.Lightmaster - Physics professor that turned to crime in order to prevent budget cuts to the university where he was employed. Developed a solar suit capable of flight and light manipulation.,. You’d think such technology would generate far more money than petty robberies but you’d be wrong!Equinox - Aka the Thermodynamic Man! A young African American man exposed to to his father’s malfunctioning lab experiment, was left with power over fire and ice. Conveniently fought Iceman and Human Torch. Also has super strength/durability because why not? Solarr - mutant with the ability to absorb solar radiation. Comes with the usual sun-based powers but also can make mirages... because desert.BAF The Dreadnought - ...cool looking robot created by Jim Steranko.
>>8577535Keep in mind that Harley is wearing a knee pad making it look like there's more gap in pics when it's just the knee pad protruding out. It doesn't look unnaturally gappy.If you handle them correctly, the revo knees keep a good look very, very far into their bend, and at the point at which they open a regular double knee looks very unnatural as well.
>>8577616>like i said, it makes it look like it's a prostitute's prosthetic leg.No more so than any other double jointed knee>silohette wise it creates a look like the leg is hanging by a tendon. unnatural as fuck, but that's just how yamaguchi loves to engineer his transformers.pic unrelated I guess
kill yourself already subby holy shit
>>8577630(cont.) I mean, not all double joints reach past 150º at all (or even 135º), and those that do tend to look like the knee is a long bone like the femur and the tibia effectively making the leg into 3 segments.
>subjectanon think THIS is happyWhat a contarian.
>>8577630>If you handle them correctly,you mean unlike your photo?> It doesn't look unnaturally gappy.just stop. the top of the leg has a hollowed out area.no ands ifs or buts about this, unless you're totally delusionalThe psylocke figure has nothing like that, nor does that Aegis figure.You;re just a deranged fanboy who needs to deny there's a large empty socket that isn't found on many toys to feel better about your purchase, and thta;s just pathetic.
>>8576212Old man checking in. Think he was The Web, a Carlston Comic character. DC bought the rights and remade them in the 90s (The Fly, The Shield, The Web)I got mine from a Kmart back in the day.
>>8577690tons of figures that have knee pads like that are similar. Stop being a contrarian.
>>8577690>the top of the leg has a hollowed out area.>The psylocke figure has nothing like that, nor does that Aegis figure.Of course they don't. It the top of the knee pad.
>>8577615Probably because you can't see them in that picture
>>8577687That IS gappy
>>8577270Probably Madam Masque. I tend to not really go to obscure with my wants because I like for there to be some kind of chance of them getting made. Although if I had to go really deep I'd go with Paste Pot Pete if only to fuck with a friend of mine who, if you ever mention a C-List or lower character he goes on a tirades about "who will they use next?! Paste Pot Pete?!"
>>8577859>Probably Madam Masque.
>>8577838Compared to what? Consider, before you answer, that many figures do not reach that angle.
>>8577862God that figure is such garbage though. I did forget she had one. I'm hoping for a new one based on her more recent/current look.
>>8577872>it looks like shit when it does it, b-but many toys can't do that! So it's okay now!
>>8573816I thought Disney put the kabash on the zombies line because "somebody please think of the children"
>>8577948I don't think kids are buying $200 Hot Toys
I cant leave him alone
>>8577913>God that figure is such garbage thoughHow? It's not any worse than any modern ML
>>8577859Considering the fact that the Legends toyline already produced figures for 4 members of the z-list Serpent Society I don't think anything is "too obscure."
>>8578025>It's not any worse than any modern MLGood bait post
>>8573037christ, i hope the iron man retro line gets deep cuts like this. give me that operation galactic storm space armor and the telepresence armor!!!
what should the next thread mascot be?
do you think they will ever release old paint apps? I know they reuse molds to rerelease figures but I missed out on so many figures started collecting last month) and really want some older figures since they are my favorite designs
>>8578008They ain’t gonna know what hit ‘em
>>8577917>it looks like shit when it does itno, you just have turbo autism
>>8577270Equinox would actually be a pretty bad ass figure.
>>8578008At least you posed him in such a way as to hide the fucked up paint apps this time.
>>8577948Only edgy/obscure characters can be zombies now. This is why we didn't get funko pops of zombie captain America and iron man and why the new marvel zombies comic has spiderman as the uninfected main character
