>>8898223>>8898224That fucking face, my god >>8898229this looks kinda cool though
>>8898223Neat accessories, but don't look ver functional. Would have traded the drill and bulldozer for extra hands.
Jesus fucking Christ, that face. I want it, though.
>>8898223God damn it. I am this fucking close to letting Megaopolis rob me. This is practically a dream line for me.
>>8898223Why didn't they start the wave with all 3 toads?
>>8898223They're not dead yet?
I'm enjoying the miscellaneous pandering at this scale. I never thought I'd ever get a battletoad and a waldo announced in the same year.
Reminder we were supposed to get these revealed back in October
>>8898282just wait for bbts or something to do a "dont pay yet" preorder>>8898301better late than never
Does this company release toys or just announce them?
>>8898370That's RashThis is Zitz
>>8898384I see, damn... looks good
everyone remember to wait for the bbts preorder for this, dont pay for something that might never happen with no chance of getting refunded
so what was the fallout from megalopolis? everyone was on their asses, now its all cool?
>>8898288Most people would just buy the three toads and call it a day, this way they can extend it out a few waves and potentially have those people who'd only buy three figures buying the other figures in the line while they wait for the other Toads.
>>8898288>>8898844They also haven't done Dark Queen.I'd say she and the 3rd Toad will be the sales drivers for wave 2Besides those 4, is there anyone else that would even be "must have" even for casuals?
>>8898223>saving one of the toads and Dark Queen for a wave 2 that might never happen, because wave 1 might not even happenREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>8898889There wont be a wave two. 6 figures with some that have different price points based on a property know more know for its memes now than quality is all but certain to fail
>>8898223Here is the queen?
>>8898854>is there anyone else that would even be "must have" even for casuals?Princess Angelica and Professor T. Bird, and Big Blag and Robo-Manus.
>>8898912Would casuals really care about those characters though?I'm not sure they would. For actual fans, yes, they're must haves, but for the people who never got passed the tunnel level, I can see them not knowing or remembering those others. Those people would get the Toads because "hey, I remember that game" and Dark Queen because she was the main villain (and also hot)But that aside, Robo-Manus is the one I'm most looking forward to
>>8898223What are the chances of DNA picking up the OddWorld license?I'd really like an articulated Abe.
>>8898973100% chance they get the license and start a pre order1000% chance the figures never come out and you lose your money
>>8898907didn't they remove her because male gaze or some shit.
>>8899079No. They just gave her a very slight redesign.
>>8899212That's not even the same character anymore.
>>8898223>>8898224No bicep swivel?
>>8899254I mean yeah, it's right there, it's sculpted to curve with the shoulder.
>>8899284looks like shit
>>8899212>very slightAre you fucking blind?
>>8899212>>8899284>just as the original Battletoads was a ripoff of TMNT, the new BTs was a ripoff of Rise of the TMNT, down to the spastic artstyle and unsexy-ing of sexy female lead I get it...I don't like it, but I get it(Of course, I might be giving them too much credit for attempting to be clever, maybe the producers were unironically being PC fags)
>>8899358They could have at least put some pants on the toads while they were at it.
>>8898223heres hoping these do well and they finally make those banjo kazooie figures!if dark queen is sexy, i will absolutely get her. Might get the rat skeleton, hes pretty cool.
>>8898455Yup, I’ve been going exclusively through bbts for madballs and this. I want them, but there’s a chance they’ll never come out so don’t pay in advance for these
>>8898466No, people just accepted that they ripped people off and now they are trying to do more of their pushing under the premium DNA brand because megatropolis has become a bad name.
>>8899245Yeah, it is pretty fucking horrible. She has almost gone full burka. They could have made her less lewd as long as they kept the space witch/dominatrix aesthetic but they took it waaaay too far into generic and completely sexless territory.>>8899357I was joking anon.>>8899284It looks bad Anon.
>>8898334We will seeThey said madballs were 7 weeks away from being sent out so hopefully those actually release on time instead of just announcing stuff
I really do want some of these figures, it's just tough to know what's going to happen. And it's not like anyone else will pick up the license.
If they come out then I'll buy them. It would also help to see some pictures of the articulation actually being used. Especially if you're listing the number of articulation points as a feature.
>>8898223>>8898224Hope they figure out the eyes before this goes in to production. that does not look right.
>>8899984Yea it needs the black around the eyes to be thicker.
Its a shame Karnath probably isn't a practical option for a toy. I think he's pretty cool
>>8899984Someone made a decent edit and they seems as though they've acknowledged it. Here's hoping they actually take feedback into account for the final product.
>>8900023Definitely an improvement. Shit, if they fix it I may order this.
>>8898229this looks so great just as random skeleton toy for my skellies collectionHow much this will be and when they gonna be out?
>>8900023HOLY CRAP...i wanted to buy this figure but now i wont...how did they manage to fuck this upand im not a good artist so i wont be able to draw those eyes myselfhard pass
>>8900023What a difference that makes.>Here's hoping they actually take feedback into account for the final product.Indeed.
>>8898223I really hope they fix the eyes.
>>8900373Hit them up on Twitter and say something, they won't know otherwise.
>>8898223Where can I preorder this?
>>8898229>>8900198>this looks so great just as random skeleton toy for my skellies collectionYeah. Damn. Same here.
>>8898223isnt this the company that doesnt release shit despite having licenses for various video game IPs?
>>8900023back on board if they make this fix.
Well? Any news on this?
>>8900854Still waiting to hear something. I think they want to have it all revealed first.
>>8898223Battletoads has had a decent pop culture shelf life for a tmnt knock off with one good arcade game and decent NES game
>>8900023That’s still wrong tho since that isn’t the zitz they’re going for here>those accessoriesIt’s arcade zitz so they need to make the black outline much biggerLike big enough to cover that eye socket sculpting entirely
>>8898907Omfg yas when are they going to release the heckin booba figure?! Oh yes I wanna coom so bad
You think Pawn Stars sells these?
>>8904766Battletoads prank calls
>>8898854>is there anyone else that would even be "must have" even for casuals?Not exactly a character but they should include the rat boyz with a bike accessory or something that lets you put the toads on those godforsaken bikes from Turbo TunnelAlso my nigga General Vermin
>>8907311Isn't vermin in this first wave?
>>8907311If they sell generic rats with turbo bikes, hoo mama. I want the rats, but even just the bikes would be cool.
>>8899996>6" scale>everything is proper sized going by how the silhouettes line upI can see them making Blag, but Big Blag is probably Not Happening tier.
>>8907324second-biggest seems to me like general slaughter, and the biggest one i'm guessing is robo-manuslatter should be interesting, considering how unique his incarations werealso found pic related while snooping around the battletoads wiki to refresh my memory
>>8907452General Slaughter has to be the largest silhouette there if he's in that group shot, as he doesn't have spiked shoulderpads. Generak Vermin has the shoulder spikes of the smaller silhouette. Also, look at the feet: biggest silhouette has simple hoof shaped feet, while the second biggest has massive toed feet.
>>8907064>work opening shift at a mom-and-pop game shop with an extensive retro inventory>phone rings, pick up receiver and greet the caller>"Yo, you guys got Battletoads?">smirking, "Which one? NES, Genesis, SNES, Game Gear or Game Boy? We've got at least one of every title in stock.">after a lengthy pause, "YOUR MOM!" and the call suddenly disconnects>have a laugh about it later with my second shift coworker
>>8902239idk bout all that. i think eyeliner on the edit would be perfect
>>8898229Give it a black robe and a scythe and you've got The Death of Rats from Discworld.
>>8907473ah, good catchesi'm much rustier than i thought
I'm surprised to see these, I was almost certain they were gonna fold entirely with no mention of these in months and the shipping issues they've been having. Still not getting my hopes up until the madballs are actually in people's hands tho
>>8898282Pre-order on bbts. No cost, cancel any time before it's in stock.
The Arcade was the only good Battletoads game
I might actually get an earthworm jim
>>8909584FUCK I want that. I hope they release it. I want that bad.
>>8909885>Company announces a cool toy>I hope they release itYeah this sucksI hate that premium dna has so much cool stuff coming but no reason to trust them
>>8909944Like I'm willing for them to show me up and release shit and it's cool. I'll throw money at them. But I don't need big talkin' asshats that wanna screw people and run because *nobody* else will make these.
>>8909263It is far and away the best one but the Double Dragon crossover and to a lesser extent the NES game were pretty alright.>>8909584Even if these never actually come out I really do have to give it to the sculptor for capturing the style so well.
>>8909263>best entry is the most unfinished:^(
>>8909584I really hope the reason why there's only one other Toad silhouette is because it's going to be two recolors
>>8910476There is literally a shorter Toad silhouette right there in front of Vermin.
>>8910488I hope that's a red herring too
>>8898907I hope they make this fat titted cunt.
Wake me up when the Clayfighter figures are revealed
>>8902246"I HATE FUN AND SEXY LOOKING FIGURES SO I CALL PEOPLE WHO LIKE THEM COOMERS" Grew up dude
>>8910642That would be legitimately based. I love that game.
>>8902246>>8907716Shut the hell up "gamer don't buy toys" fag
>>8910705They have the license, they just haven’t shown anything off yet.
I really only want Rash from Battletoads. Banjo, Perfect Dark & Conker are what I really want figures from. Hopefully these faggots actually make them.
Zitz is my favorite Battletoad, so this is great, but I thought he was bluer? Like original tmnt toy Michaelangelo colored.
>>8910642I’d like clay fighter too but I think I’d only want to get bad mr. frosty and t. hoppy maybe they’ll show them after earthworm JimHopefully the madballs will be released by then so we can see if they’re bullshitting or not
>>8911823>but I think I’d only want to get bad mr. frosty and t. hoppyYou'd need Sumo Santa for Frosty to fight, though.
>>8911823>>8911908you think they'd do Boogerman?
>>8912096I know he was in a Clayfighter game, but thst was a cameo from a different franchise wasn't it? Would he still be included in Clayfighter rights?
>>8912126interplay owns the rights to both, so we may very well see boogerman's return
>>8899212If it ain't woke, don't fix it.
>>8898301Also a reminder they haven’t even finished the fucking barnyard and madballs figures that were supposed to be done a while ago lol
I can’t tell if they’re full of shit or just really, really bad at business decisions. If you’re trying to start a new line of figures and have licenses for stuff like earthworm jim, battletoads and clayfighters, how does picking madballs or barnyard commandos make the most sense to start with? And now they supposedly can make Banjo Kazooie stuff that they know would automatically make bank no matter what, but they’re prioritizing battletoads over it? It just doesn’t make sense to pick such obscure shit to launch with if you’re just starting off and have more popular options to lure people in with, especially if you’re a company that’s well known for fucking people over all the time.
I’m sorry if there’s any hardcore barnyard commando fans in here but seriously they’re going to make like negative money off of those and probably have to quit before making any of the cool stuff.
>>8910642Will they have the balls to do Kung Pow?
>>8913678Because toy makers get all their licenses at once right?
Damn, don't they have the Killer Instinct and Perfect Dark license as well? And they decided to start with battletoads? That franchise doesn't have enough fans
>>8910642>>8913708How would they pull off guys like Taffy and 63 1/2 Ickybod?
>>8913678>can make Banjo Kazooie stuff that they know would automatically make bank no matter whatI think you're overestimating Banjo's popularity as a toy brand. The games are beloved classics, doesn't mean the fans are gonna be the type to shell out for articulated figures. Battletoads has both the meme value and the fact that they do genuinely make good action figure fodder.
>>8914328Any Banjo merch is bought up. The Sony Totasu or whatever the hell sold like gangbusters and became hard to find almost instantly. And the amiibo is right up there too. People WANT Banjo stuff.
>>8899212>slightdoesn't look anything like the dark queen
>>8914724That's the joke.
>>8913708trippy seeing this in such a hi-resi always thought he had slant-eyes and a lack of facial hair
>>8914325A rubbery bendable "Gumby" type toy would be ideal for Taffy.Yeah, that kind of toy isn't really "adult collectible " style, but for a character like Taffy, I don't think hard and rigid is appropriate. Ickybod just needs a stand so he can look like he's floating
>>8915613Same. It's weird how detailed they made the models, considering how crushed they were going to get due to n64 graphical limitations. They must have thought the machine was capable of much higher resolution visuals when they made those models. I've heard Sumo Santa had like stitches and cottage cheese thighs that you can't make out in the sprite.
>>8898223What would the price be like?
>>8898223How will the size compare to this? I want the turtles to be shorter than the toads but not tiny
>>8915766those vintage turtles are like 3.75 or 4 inches... pretty sure the battletoads are a 7inch lineso yeah if you're talking about vintage turtles they'll be substantially shorterbut if you're collecting the super7 remake turtles they might fit in well
>>8915544poe's lawI've seen a lot of people defend this redesign unironically
>>8916353>7 inch lineit says 6 inch in OPs pic.. And since I'm only getting Rash, he will be a little more short than the other boys
