>want to discuss toys>check social media groups>Mods of groups are massive shills, essentially post ads for online store on constant basis>can't complain or else get banned for wrongthink>find 4chan>find /toy/>actual discussion of toys, not just people flexing their collections or shillingI actually feel I belong here, thank you /toy/
>>8687429Please accept one honorary plastic nigger as a token of your inauguration.
gonna be blunt here OP but /toy/ is pretty shit too. we're mainly here because there's no where else.
>>8687429Welcome, anon. I will warn you that 4chan kind of fucking sucks ass and you should leave before it's too late but broadly speaking it is sometimes one of the only places on the internet where you can legitimately discuss things. Apu is nice.
>>8687429What toy lines do you collect OP
>>8687439I was always here, /toy/ is perfect
>>8687429You know /toy/ does have its problems. There is shilling from time to time. There are collection threads where people post pics of their collection, and everyone call it a clusterfuck or says the person is a hoarder. There are some extremely dedicated trolls, but its pretty easy to not engage and just talk about toys. The board has its problems, but I also have not found a better place online to talk about toys, just for the variety of whats discussed here. I still learn about cool new toys and lines, and there's still a lot of great discussion.
>>8687464Plastic Blocks, Star Wars, and Transformers mainly.
>>8687429While its not the “best” board, its certainly the least worst
Also best place to get news. Pretty much every toy line is discussed here, so you can just pop in and check out whatever line's bullshit general and see all the important shit
>>8687555>its not the “best” boardthen why the fuck are you here
>>8687512Yeah the idea of discussing any of the things I collect anywhere else is a nightmare concept to me. No clue how dudes exist in places dedicated to one toy line or niche or even have a post history. Shit as this place can be sometimes, I'll take rampant boogeyman shitposting and general trolling over getting banned for wrongthink.
>>8688811Because it's where we discuss toys...
>>8688942ie the best hobby
>>8688946I mean. That's debatable and depends solely on whatever hobby a person is into, but okay.
>>8687429>find /toy/>actual discussion of toysWhat bizzaro /toy/ did you come from?
>>8687555FWOOSH MY SHIT UP
>>8689005Don't engage with it, it's the anon who gets mad that people can enjoy things other than toys.They'll go into a rant about how "x is useless unlike childrens toys"
>>8689081In a way, it's only partially wrong. In the grand scheme of things, everything is useless.
>>8688811Because the best board isn't active enough. At least, that's why I'm here.
>>8689076I have never even attempted to use the Fwooooooooooooooooooooosh forums because they only discuss cheap American toys and I don't collect those. Any time they do discuss Japanese toys then half the posts are just shitting on them, or making excuses as to why you shouldn't collect them, or they just have no idea what they're talking about.
>>8687435lol those nu wars had horrible merchandise
>>8687429I feel the exact same. I didn't even realize this fucking website had a board for toys until recently. I'd been trying to find a good way to discuss toys without constantly being sold something. It feels like I can finally talk about my transformers with frens.
>>8687429a looong time ago i found an action figure board, first and only google that wasnt specifically themed. the posts were recent enough. One time i asked what a chase figure was, and i had no response for like a week. i eventually forgot about the place til a year later, and 3 posts were like "you're kidding, right?" i mean you guys are like that too, but you respond quicker in comparison
>>8689135>"you're kidding, right?"Fuggg
>>8687429You're welcome. Now post toy booba.
>>8687512I actually think the board has improved over the last few months. People have been better about staying on the topic of actual toys and not straying into /co and /v shit. It's been nicer here.
>>8691765Really? I feel like /toy/ has been terrible since December, like some people's bans ran out and they decided to come back in full force.It's mellowing out a bit now but that first week of January was rough
>>8691765If you banned 2-3 certain posters (the kind that constantly causes arguments), it'd be a lot nicerOf course /toy/ can feel like a great board when you're used to how shitty other boards can be.
>>8691785The jannies rarely seem to do anything here, well unless you mention a certain name, then they get off their asses but ignore everything else.
>>8691765Wow, you're an idiot.
I love /toy/ too it's the best place to honestly talk about the hobbie and find upcoming releases.
>>8689116A fellow PLW patrician?
>>8691825wow, you're wrong as usual stop false flagging.
>>8691785I just ignore those particular posters or if I'm feeling bored tear down their shit. Theyre easy to spot. >>8691825You sound like you're one of the shit stirrers mad that derailing people has become tougher.
>>8694241Yep. Nice discussion but crickets.
>>8687478this, I dont even like toys but you guys are alright, very comfy, pretty based.
>>8694241Not, him but yes.>>8694488It doesn't have to be this way, we just need to encourage more anons to join. We already have small base that can only grow.
>>8694488>>8695495Only problem is sometimes there isn't much to say as we've already said it, so a few more anons would be ideal to keep discussions going. But that said I'm very happy with the quality of posts compared to here, I get the feeling cuckchan /toy/ has a lot of outsiders only really here to shitpost.
>>8689116>>8694241fuck off, /toy/ is the best board you fucking tourists
>>8695781You think people can't use more than one board or something?
It's not that good, my thread about French moebius prospective Sci fi toy line got deleted for absolutely no reason because this board is stuck in its autistic 1/12 ways.
>>8695786fuck every other board, there are communities beyond them, /toy/ has no such thing
>>8695800>1/12 boogeyman You're one of the reasons this place can be so bad
>>8695813Not really, I collect 1/12 too. It isn't the be all, end all scale like you tards climb it to be. It has its positives and negatives.
>>8695806Most boards don't have such a thing either, forums are more or less dead and who even wants to use Reddit?You got no other interests outside of toys?>>8695813He's only bad because people keep falling for his shit opinions, just ignore.
/toy/ is one of my favorite places to lurk. Love you guys.
>>8695817"1/12 scale" is stupid anyway because it describes everything from 5 inch figures to huge 9-10 inch Storm stuff. it basically just describes everything in between 1/18 and 1/6
>>8695781Cuckchan /toy/ isn't the best
>>8696482more active users than deadlikewoah, lol. couldn't even break a five hundred posts in over a year.
>>8695817I never claimed it to be anything, I don't even collect the scale but there are people who collect 1:18 who get so fucking mad that 1:12 exists they shit up threads all the time.
>>8696495Woah, making stories again over an over bloated scale with autists like shartimus prime fans thinking their hobby is a sport and scalping each other for profit? Whats it like collecting a retarded scale?
>>8696495The detail and accuracy is nice on 1/12, I won't deny it. It seems like a scale of figures that are built for people who have appreciation for movie props and costumes/ likeness/design. But it's also drawn a bunch of tourist consoomer tards into the hobby that surf on the fandom and collect to hawk the figs on eBay. I hope 1/12 collectors keep collecting what they like, and leave all of the vintage stuff untouched please.
>>8696495it's literally one retard spamming the same buzzwords over and over in different threads. 1/12 capeshit shartimus star wars. There, now you've read all of his posts.
>>8696691It's more than one, nice cope.
>>8687478I've been here for like 10 years there was one year that was ultra shit but the rest have been alright and made a few friends along the way.
>>8696706>there was one year that was ultra shitwhy's that?
>>8695800>French moebius prospective Sci fi toy lineWait...what? Oh I'm interested!> because this board is stuck in its autistic 1/12 waysOh, it's you. Fuck off you shitposting cunt, no wonder your thread got deleted.
>>8696794>I don't want any French bd sci-fi toys if it isn't 1/12You spergs can't see the wood for the trees.
>>8696819I never said that at all. I actually enjoy looking at toys from all lines and scales and if I could afford it I would collect both 1/12 and 1/18. Especially for all the mechs and vehicles available and because Acid Rain World and Planet Green Valley really suit the aesthetic I like.I would love to see a French-sci-fi inspired line, just to see what toys come out of it. I would prefer one in the scale I collect, but I would enjoy seeing them anyway.I told him to fuck off because he gives people shit for the scale they collect, instead of accepting that there are people out there that like things that he doesn't.So you can fuck right off too.
>>86970411/12 scale is full of retards that over look all toys in favour of building a shrine to their own personal jesus.
>>8697041>I don't want any French bd sci-fi toys if it isn't 1/12I'm saying That's why the thread got deleted. I don't care what you collect. Every time hopes for a new toy line are discussed : "if it isn't 1/12 I don't want it".
>>86972571/18, 1/6, 1/12 is the general rule for me in terms of human/human-sized figures. 1/10 is pushing it.It's honestly retarded to make it any other unorthodox scale like 1/24, 1/9, or 1/7.
>>8697257It didn't get deleted because it wasn't 1/12 you idiot we have multiple threads focusing on different scales.
>>8697257>I'm saying That's why the thread got deletedThen you're an idiot>I don't care what you collect.Except that you clearly do.>Every time hopes for a new toy line are discussed : "if it isn't 1/12 I don't want it"Are you saying 1/12 is the only popular scale? That nobody gives a shit about 1/6 or 1/18? Because that's clearly bullshit, given we have generals specifically for those scales and other threads discussing toys from those scales.>>8697701THIS
>>8687429Welcome aboard OP.As others have said, /toy has it's problems but is generally pretty good.General trolling aside, I find the main bane of this place to be Console Warriors.- 1/18 vs 1/12. And it looks like 1/10 might be entering the fight.- Revoltech vs any line, especially when articulation is brought into the picture. Worst is when they pull out the "dynamic posing" card.- Storm Collectibles vs SH Figuarts: Street Fighter. Never mention the SHF SF, as that'll summon the SC. Mentioning the early SC SF, especially Chun Li, might summon the SHF SF supporters.
>>8695800No, it was deleted because you basically posted "Why no moebius toys". then i asked you who they would make and you replied "IDK"Don't expect us to carry your shitty thread if you have nothing to add. The only reason i remember the thread is because i'm a big fan of Moebius but if you have nothing to say why make a thread in the first place?
>>8696485Quality over quantity
>>8697802Don't forget just general east vs west shit.>Oh you buy western toys? Well you're a poorfag who likes Walmart garbage, kill yourself!>Oh you like eastern toys? Well you're a weeb who is dealing with sunken cost, kill yourself!Though generally I see western toys bashed more often but really both parties have their assholes who do nothing but bait the others.
>>8697278>1/24 is retarded because I say soWow, Americans truly are retarded.
>>8697879Well, if it ain't a giant robot, car, or something, yeah it's unorthodox. Also I'm a Brit.
>>8696485It's good to see you too Toy Insanity. How is your new year going so far?
>>8697740Fuckin hell lads, I landed an absolute monster.Barry, get the measuring stick.
>>8697278>It's honestly retarded to make it any other unorthodox scale like 1/24Disagree. 1/24 is perfect for Mecha with pilots and vehicle-based lines.
>>8699237>pretending you were trolling when >>8697822>mods prove that you're just a dickhead
>>8699421>modsThanks for the laughs.
>>8696710Probably around 2017, I was in a dark place lost my job and some "friends", over some dumb shit. Really wasn't in the mood to be trolled or accused for wanting a hugbox. Shit sucked. I came back eventually and never felt as ridiculed.
>>8699617Also same year my secret /toy/ Santa decided to not gift me.
>>8687439Most this for me. It's the only place to have a chance to discuss foreign and/or lesser known toy lines (not to sound like a hipster). Whenever there is legit discussion it's great. Most of the timat that doesn't happen, but it's still much better than nothing or having to deal with other forums. It's comfy sometimes, and really neat when you run into other people collecting the stuff you like.
>>8696485>couldn't even break a five hundred posts in over a yearWhy do you lie anon? It's 623 FYI
>>8687439>>8700068Why not give alt/toy/ a go? We used to be on 8ch but the new link to the board is https://prolikewoah.com/toy/ .
>>8700422whats the board culture like? the fact you moved from 8ch makes me assume its worse than here, unless you moved because 8ch is a cesspit
>>8700476Its dead because no one posts there AHAHAAHAHA
>>8700476We moved because the only affiliation we had to 8ch was that they hosted the board. As soon as there was a better alternative we jumped ship, because like you said 8ch was a cesspit. Culture wise I'd say we're laid back - we just talk about toys and don't have none of the brand wars/e-celeb bitching that plagues this board. >>8700548You did
>>8701369>deadlikewoah is so much better>still comes to best board
>>8701375How's your year going so far, TI? Pick up anything interesting? I'm thinking of getting the McFarlane Necron.
>>8701399>still thinks ti posts hereHe doesn't, go ask him on a video
>>8701401The person I'm responding to is TI, or somebody who used to spam links to his videos across this board. He's had a vendetta against the PLW /toy/ board ever since I removed the YouTube links he was spamming from his posts. I haven't even deleted his posts or banned him but PLW still lives rent free in his head and he usually mentions how the board is for "incel terrorists" or how the board is 'dead'.
>>8701413Lemme ask you something. Say Ti was the only one that reviewed a toy would you allow it? How do you feel about other ecelebs getting shared?
>>8701445I don't allow e-celeb discussion, so talking purely about a reviewer and not the review itself wouldn't be allowed. The way I see it e-celeb discussion has nothing to do with toys, and maybe I'm just becoming an old fart but I don't care for drama and just want to talk about toys.>Say Ti was the only one that reviewed a toy would you allow it?As long as the links to said review weren't being spammed or used to create discussion about TI himself rather than the toys, I would allow it. Truth be told I don't have anything against him, he's an annoying ass but 4chan just enables him so it's no wonder he doesn't try to put effort into his posts.>How do you feel about other ecelebs getting shared?Same as above. I don't hold anything against any YouTuber but I won't have any threads solely about them.
>>8701467And this is why your forum is dead.
>>8701473You're seething no one likes your channel huh Ahmed?
>>8701502Ti is american
>>8701467Based af. Wish we had a rule on /toy/ banning eceleb talk. Far more fucking cancerous and unrelated to toy discussion than statues.
>>8701916Good thing you're not in charge.
>>8702490So how are youtubers related to toys?
>>8702749How is YouTuber Ryan's toys not an internationally recognised toy brand?
>>8701473better dead than give attention to those e-nobodies
>>8702767>yea I know my forum is dead, better than coming here arguing about TI all day haha
>>8702755>>8702490The biggest issue with allowing eceleb threads is that the threads are never about toys. They are always threads about the reviewers lives, drama etc. Basically nothing related to /toy/ is discussed in these threads. As proof just look at the two active eceleb threads right now.
>>8702937>ecelebs are not okay unless its ones I approve of
>>8687429I'm getting into Godzilla figures and rediscovering Transformers Beast Wars after over 20 years. I recently acquired the MP Beast Wars Megatron, but it was so expensive and the plastic is so thin in some places that I'm too scared to transform him out of beast mode right now. This has been a very helpful board, particularly for finding specific figures and hearing about good deals. On the other hand, I've been spending too much altogether because of it. Time for a break.
>>87019164chan has needed an /incel/ quarantine board for quite some time.
> not just people flexing their collections or shillingThere is a bit of that tho
>>8704024Isn't it /r9k/?>>8702960Oh no. None of it should be allowed. Should be deleted as readily as statues are.
>>8694629this. I like to browse and look at people collections
>>8704054He means /incel/ - Internet Celebrities
>>8701473>>8702767>>8702770Falseflagging, PLW /toy/ isn't dead.
>>8702770>Anonymous is one person
>>8704025Idk I feel like I rarely see actual shilling going on, just anyone screaming that someone else is shilling just because they like something they don't
I've been posting here for about a year and I feel the same OP. Normal toy boards, I hate the culture. Always someone ready to rip you down for not liking something and chugging as much corporate cock as possible.
>deadlikewoah isn't dead
>>8706622>e-celeb faggot keeps lying
