Received SHODO Super Silver yesterday. It's my first SS and I'm a little disappointed. Not only it's really small (of course I read the listed size but, in hand, you realize how small that really is) but the movement range is also severely limited. Way too expensive for what it is.I'm cancelling the SS Bioman set and getting back to praying for the miraculous return of sentai and metal hero SHFs. Stand-ins suck.
>no sound on sg keys again
Hey, can we get some Shodo/So-do figure pics here?
So... No DX toys this month? Here I thought Omni Force Wonder Ride Book would be perfect for standalone retail. Nothing in TV-kun?
any chads here with a big seihou collection? how's it feel to be so based?
>>8974354I own every released SHFSS except amazing mighty kuuga and the GARO stuff.
>>8974358post some pics? I'd love to see it. kinda sad you skipped GARO though its a great show
every time, bros... I tell myself "buying this kaiju will make me happy." and then there's the waiting, the excitement, I get the figure in hand, the new purchase feeling wears off...and I'm exactly right. I am happy. it's good to own some monsters
>>8974097good. collectibles can go fuck themselves
>>8974360I don't have a display at the moment, but here's an old photo I took of my hibiki shit. I haven't watched GARO yet, so I have yet to buy anything from it.
Just need Burter to finish finish the Ginyu Tokusentai!
I know nothing about the property, but these little half-assembled Ultraman guys are very satisfying to pose.
>>8974386top tier posing lmao
>>8974718Love the people chimping out at this clear fetish item and saying it's "bullying the actress"
>>8974722It's not a fetish it's show accurate
>>8974722Them saying "increases the feeling of obesity, making it closer to the actor's body" sounds a bit rude, specifically using the word obesity. Maybe it's just how it translates though.
>>8974763It's likely just translation. There is no nice word for overweight in Chinese. And no I don't think her actress is obese either.
>>8974763Just shitty translations If it read "give her a nice chubby belly" everyone would know the real reason they made it
>>8974626Better but she needs to look pregnant
>>8974723The faces from that kit aren't show accurate.
>>8974782nah the translation is correct in this one
>>8974782When you have a Government that starves its people it's no wonder there isn't a word for overweight.
*throws away 2/3s of the toyline for the final combination*Nothing persona kid
>>8974354>Missed Double originally>New Reissue hasn't even gone live and is still rumored to be a "at the event only" order>Missed Kabuto>TWICE>Missed Hibiki on release because of shit>Don't actually like Agito but still regret not getting him>They're all 4140+ each nearlyCoolFunGreat line
>>8974354I sold all of mine except for the most based figure (Hibiki).Would buy Kabuto again whenever he gets reissued but that requires Bandai to stop hating money.
>>8975028Collection looks good though. Don't feel bad about completionism, its for spergs.
>>8975124I just want all main Heisei Riders and Final FormsI think half of them don't have it tho
That CSM Agito belt looks fucking sexy but the price is a bit much. What CSM/CS is actually worth it's original price?
>>8975170find a shop that lets you do pay in 4 with paypal
>>8973852this is not real please...
>>8975268it's just a fan mode. Have no fear. I'm sure the real super combo will be far worse.
Is this normal for Nin-Nin? First time ordering from them
>>8975639yeah, that's what it said when I ordered Kuuga dragon form from them until it actually shipped
>>8975667It’s SHF Rocking Hopperthat I preordered in like Oct. Just seems weird it’s taking so long to ship. What is this preparation process? Oh well, guess I’ll wait a bit longer
>>8975677I got mine from them already.
>>8975681I want this so bad bros. They get snatched up on mandarake immediately
>>8975677It took a loooooong time for me to get my fig. I was a day away from emailing them about it before I finally got the ship notification.
>>8975681Fuckin' A. I think it would have done fine as a general release.
Felt like taking photos today. Zero One shit is so cool.
>>8975681>>8976004Never got to pre-order him. I'll catch up on the aftermarket someday. But I did pre-order Dragonic Knight, a similar looking form. Very excited.
>>8976004Looking pretty clean
>>8976018needs some zero two
>>8976052I don't think anything comes out this monthMaybe some P-Bandai figuarts
>>8976140I also just realized, I forgot a certain hopper in my pic.
>>8976146i like how they look in the blacklight btwdo you have a favorite in that lineup?
>>8976150Metal cluster hopper, I plan on making his eyes glow red, I'm waiting on some paint.
>>8976011>>8976016God please just tell me that this is bad posing and that they can actually do a better rider kick than this
>>8976140Zero Two isn't even confirmed yet
>>8976162Pretty sure it's just bad posing. Most rider figures can do a proper rider kick, it is what they're known for.
>>8976171sure, but it still needs it
>>8976162It looks bad because there isn't enough ab crunch, pic related is as far as it goes. The overall articulation on 001 is pretty bad, that is actually as far as the arms can bend.>>8976173I was going for a different kick.
>>8973852that looks so bad to me, the single zords look nice, the combined pairs look nice, but all four together looks like an afterthought, like a mess
>>8976280It's not a real form
Fucking Bandai using materials that have been clearly documented to be defective for long term displays. I guess it’s about time I bow out of buying more SHFSS.
>>8976356Wow, that sucks. And it's only been out for what, 3 days?
>>8976356nice time to pick up a cheap one
>>8976356So much for the "no visible joints" project.
>>8976356KEK at the people who PO'd this and the Seihou Tiga....Oh wait. Shit.
>>8976356>One bad product >IM GONNA STOP BUYING SS ALTOGETHER Dumb sperg-y white boy.
>>8976356i don't understand why people think this issue has been solved.Everything flexible will crack eventually.Even shit like leather will crack and there are hipsters who loooove that "patina", which is just dirt, grease, and areas where the cracks will appear.
>>8976356Does anyone know how that notshf seamless goku is fairing in comparison?
>>8976501Those fucking bastards, they knew.
>>8976523Probably not. This always happens whether or not you were careful with figures like these.
>>8976473Two of the most recent new sculpts for SHFSS are using this. Any future products using this feature should be avoided. That’s not hard to understand, is it? Also, I’m not white you fuckstain.
>>8976356>>8976501>mafex: haha give me your money i have nice sculpts but randomly shit qc>bandai: hold my previously better than yours qc
>>8976356Well now I don’t feel bad for missing Tiga
>>8976531>Tfw SS Ryuki, Fourze, Shadowmoon, or RX might come with this soft good bullshittery How quick does Bandai pull out of a bad idea once people report it? I have hopes of it being relatively quick with >>8976501 since they made Vegeta have a cloth body suit instead.
>>8976523Saw this pic from some Hong Kong group. A few Japanese reviewers have also posted pics of theirs, similar issue. This was just an incredibly dumb move from Bandai, pretty much everyone was worried about this the moment they used this as a selling point. Flexible rubbery parts over joints have never turned out well for the toys’ durability or even poseability. They could have achieved the same detail with sculpted parts, idiotic move to go for a material that’s always been known to eventually have this issue.
>>8976537Vegeta has cloth because those parts are covered by a costume in the source design. I doubt Tiga would change, toys go into factory production as far ahead as 10 months before release. The dumb thing is this was completely predictable even by consumers. Crazy idiotic how the biggest toy company out there who’ve churned out thousands of different collector level products still went ahead with this.
>>8976356get ready for black 4.0 :^)
>>8976547I don't expect a change in Tiga and I guess I have to live with the consequences of that. I was thinking more about newer releases down the line.
>>8976537It’s so you can buy a new one
I love how one picture is enough to send everyone into full out sperg panic mode. How about you wait and see how your Black fares before you declare the entire line defective.
>>8976605Are you illiterate? This is an issue with the material they chose, not individual figures
>>8976356damn just paid for mine on amiami
>>8976815Same, makes me feel a bit stupid, I was actually thinking they were going to be using a cloth for in the shoulders, not this. I'd sooner have had that now at this point...
>>8976356You know it's overblown shitpost when someone announces something that nobody gives a shit about
>>8976356Reminds me of those old Crouching Tiger figures and McFarlane's Headless Horseman. I'm feeling less bad about missing this one, and >>8976401might have the right idea.
The "reviewer" you're all screencapping is someone who intentionally breaks figures and posts pictures on social media for clout. That's why people keep cropping out his name. There's nothing wrong with a Seihou release
>>8976957Looking at this guy's instagram account it seems like he only reposts other pople's pictures
>>8976970Right, he’s a liar
>>8976608"N-no. let me bitch and moan and complain and piss into the wind."
>>8976473> Wife cheats on you once> IT'S OK HONEY I KNOW IT WAS JUST A ONE-OFF MISTAKE, SURE YOU CAN GO OUT DRINKING TONIGHT
>>8976972I mean, >>8976957 is a liar
>>8976978Also works with an abusive relationship analogy
>>8976978>>8976993Sorry I'm too American to understand, could you use a food analogy?
>>8976978Bandai is a just company that sells plastic Bugman goods to nerds. You and that anon are being equally dumb
The Ginyu Tokusentai is almost complete.
>>8976473>>8976537ISn't the problem here just the fact that this material they're using isn't some miracle new rubber that everyone thought was going to change the industry, since any rubber, thin rubber especially, that flexes will always deteriorate?Why would anyone believe that Bandai would release something like this and, only after complaints, would create that miracle rubber on their second try?At best, Bandai could use a longer lasting rubber, but that figure would be borked 2 or 5 years from now.I don't know why people actually expected a miracle rubber in the first place. I can understand dumb people who know nothing would think everything would be great, but everyone else who knows any rubber product should know by now to expect failure... albeit not immediately.
>>8976356I stayed up all night refreshing to get my preorder in, paid the ridiculous shipping prices they have now, and the fig breaks this fast? Bandai can go fuck themselves.
>>8976547It was crazy predictable by the same consumers who preordered in this thread. Fucking idiots KEK!
Anyone here use fullcarttoys before? I ask since I see they have some rider stuff on there. How are they? and most importantly, how is the shipping?
>>8977070Several of us said this would happen because there’s no miracle rubber material and you spergs shouted us down at the time. You deserve your shitty overpriced broken toy
>>8977053happy for you anon, not into dbz but the ginyu force will always be an official sentai
>>8976957Leave it to a Dragon Ball collector to do shit like this. I see loads of people online who haven't had this issue on JP Twitter. The guy doesn't even collect Kamen Rider SHF so his point is not valid.
>>8976460WaitDoes the SS Tiga have soft goods?
>>8977263What does collecting DB or not have to do with anything? You don't even need to collect Kamen Rider prior to acknowledge any crackage. Like somebody else said, this material cracking isn't anything new.If it didn't happen in the first week, can you honestly expect it to not happen within a year?
>>8977100Been answered a few times in last thread AnonThey take a bit to ship but it get's to you quickly and they're goodFull Cart is it's own maker and SHF Upgrade pairs with them to put his products up too.Stellar stuff that fixes the issues Bandai shouldn't be having like Paint/Decal missing on Ride Watches/Progrise Keys, Proper silver and detailed Saber Swords and soft goods/bendy wire capes for Riders.
>>8977480Is that the preorder link or just a product overview?
>>8977499the latter, sadly
>>8977480We live in a era where getting p-bandai figuarts are easier to get than normal retail releases
>>8977731toku figuarts in general are getting harder to find at retail prices and bandai doesn't seem to have an intention of doing more than the bare minimum by giving each character one release wave and MAYBE a reissue two years after its fucked, man
>>8977065I mean I guess a number of ppl were expecting the same material that Figma uses in a lot of their figures. Well, I knew it was gonna happen to Black since his was in his armpit, you know, where it REQUIRES moving the arm out potentially stretching it? That, admittedly, is pretty stupid.>>8977277Tiga, however, has the soft plastic tech thing on his ENTIRE TORSO. Like I said, I think some anons thought it'd be the same material as what Figma uses, cuz pic related is kinda similar in that it also as a soft body torso and it hasn't had a problem. But, we'll just have to see once Tiga comes out.
>>8978030Thank you for the answer to the a question nobody asked.
>>8978048Setuju dengan itu saudara!jajajaja
>>8978067how much in burgerbucks?
From the Ghost and Saber TTFC, I wonder if this will get a candy toy.
>>8978067where's Buster, you bustas
>>8978067>Can do full printed detail on the X-Swordsman Ride Book>Can't detail Light Book in the sword
>>8978083>Ghost and Saber TTFCLOL
>>8978176I'm holding your firstborn to that date!
>>8978185I ain't got no plans for kids yet, anon.Joking aside, the event at May 28 alludes that they're showing off all the northern SOL swordsmen, so it's likely Buster will be there.
>>8978192ah right that makes sense.
>>8978433For now anyway. It'd be crazy if they didn't release the three remaining north SOL riders, but they would bother releasing Naki.Personally waiting it out for her and I'm pre-ordering X-Swordman next week.
>>8976356Knew this was gonna happen and never planned on posing him super dynamically because of it, so I'm not that torn up
>>8978537You might not be torn up, but the figure sure is!
>>8978067this is the ugliest rider design i've ever seen
>>8978114Truly puzzling that they don't just give up and at least include stickers with this shit. Like, they did Blade and they did Type Formula, what is the problem. They have to know leavig it completely blank is literally the worst possible option, don't they?
>>8978661show a worse one
>>8978661also how the fuck can you disagree with the statement that this is the ugliest suit I'VE seen?
>>8978664SimpleYou're wrong as fuck.
>>8978678lmao, it's shit
>>8978689You can be wrong and biased in the /m/ KRG thread all you wantRetard
>>8978700haha nah, i'm not talking about the show, i'm saying specifically the toys of this figure look like shit.
>>8978713>how the fuck can you disagree with the statement that this is the ugliest suit I'VE seen?>suit
>>8978713Nice backpedal retard
>>8978663Not that anon, but here. Even if I like the suit and the character.
>>8977806>the same material that Figma uses in a lot of their figures.But on Figmas doesn't fully encapsulates the joint though. The only stretching that's going on is when you're pushing against it. It's relatively loose because of how its engineered, giving it plenty of room to stretch.The stuff we're seeing on this Bandai figure is every motion stretches the silicone or rubber. It has to be tight against the joint or else it'll look wrong. Even if they were the same material, the bandai joint would still look worse for it. It's akin to how the toe part of a leather shoe will look all creased up (bandai figure), whereas the area where the ankle is will still look almost brand new (Figma). Same leather, but it'll wear out differently because of where it's placed.
>>8979058Figured that was the case. Real disappointment. It's not a HUGE problem for Black since he's soft plastic bit is only having problems at his armpits so far, so I can see someone filling that gap with some cloth or something, but Tiga will definitely suffer cuz it's his entire torso.
>>8979063I've always thought that Black's shoulders were going to be the worst thing with soft plastic, even more than Tiga. At least Tiga's don't completely cover joints.
Just went through the complete SHF Rider list to see what I missed while collecting other lines.There are 95 releases I want. Fuck.I guess I should prioritize Shinkocchou Seihou ones since others may get the SS treatment later. What do you think?
>>8979402i dont know why anyone would ever want to be a kamen rider completionist, but prioritize the ones you feel an attachment to (because you liked the show and character more than others, etc)but if you're gonna be a completionist (please don't), yeah, prioritize seihou because their prices get worse and there's not upgrades on top of thosei hope you have a well-paying job
>>8979427I already own all the ones I'm attached to. The remaining 95 are simply those I think looks cool.
>>8979402there is a list??
>>8979474I used this https://kamenrider.fandom.com/wiki/S.H.Figuarts
Anyone know if the Ultraman manga (the one the Netflix series got based on) got canceled? I noticed the magazine publishing it moved to a digital magazine in December, then shut down in February. Did the manga get an ending? I've just been buying the English versions from Viz so I'm behind
>>8977480So this will be a general release?
>>8979798Did you miss preorder day?Started from >>8968909
>>8979832I don't buy from Japan.
>>8978643I think most of the suits are pretty ugly in Saber. I like the show though. I'm hoping we get Desast.
>>8979915Oh yeah, I forget you people exist. I hope you're able to get a preorder in through Amazon.
>>8979915Hope you get it two months late like that saber anon.
>>8980008I honestly don't mind the wait at all. >>8979985Yeah here's hoping.
>>8980008who cares as long as he gets it?
>>8979705Thank you anon. I love this series, I keep my manga editions next to my Figuarts Ultraman collection
>>8980309>I keep my manga editions next to my Figuarts Ultraman collectionBro, I just shared the link with you. No need to give me any personal deets on your collection. We aren't friends.
I hope they rerelease the Amazon SHFiguarts soon
>>8980327Fuck u stinky>>8980309I like you anon Fuck that other guy.
>either pay 3x the normal retail price and normal or free shipping from someone on ebay>or pay normal retail and rape shipping prices from a Japanese retailerFuck everything.
>>8980705On Zenkaiger stuff?
>>8980705that's toku for ya!
>>8980705I really hope they do some special set at some point. Having to hunt down a bunch of random individual candy and gacha gears that aren't even consistent between each other is the only thing that's keeping me from getting the gun.
>>8980710Just the gears and mecha. The change series figures seem to be about normal.
>>8980345The Amazons guys or SS Amazon? Cuz those guys are a pretty easy find in Mandarake.
>>8980774HLJ used to have stuff but they just got the Juragaon sethttps://www.hlj.com/zenkaiger-dx-zenkaio-juragaon-set-bann54215Manda has all others
>>8980705>2000 yen using any proxy service or mandarake>rape shipping prices from a Japanese retailerwhat? unless you're trying to ship DX mecha everything else is somewhat acceptable in shipping, specially gears
Looking at Kiramager and Zenkaiger, I'm starting to think that PLEX is going for shitty automorph gimmicks in lieu of actual combinations. The latest Zenkaiger mech doesn't even connect to the rest already out.
>>8980875It's because they're putting less effort into the franchise since Ryusoulless flopped hard
I saw some Chinese users on Twitter saying they removed Double off the May releases or preorder list. What gives? I thought he was getting a reissue.
>>8980875The point of Kiramager was to make them all stand alone mech so kids could just pick up their favourites instead of feeling pressured into buying everything to make the final combination. Japanese apartments simply don't have space for toys that big anymore and parents don't want to spend that much in sentai toys as well
>>8981001I keep seeing this opinion being repeated, is there an actual bandai source to this or is it just speculation?
>>8981023Kamen Rider Black figuarst breaking only days after release, making many children sad. Is this a Golgom plot?!
MCH on mandy, someone go. I got two.
>>8981023But>>8976957says there's no issue, the only one posting pictures of the broken rubber is just an attentionwhore purposefully breaking figures.
>>8981102I dunno, jury's out on thathttps://twitter.com/rinrinkaityo/status/1388240222157033474
Just think of the cracks in the rubber as adding realism, imagine it to be an old worn out suit and Black is on the final days of shooting.
Minipla Vroomagine seems to be selling better than Juragaon, it was limited to 1 per customer on amiami and still sold out while Juragaon is just there all the time.
>>8981331People want that robopuss
>>8980957A reissue. For an event. He's only being sold ONLY at that even, and even then you have to a Tamashii Club member AND get a chance on being admitted to the store.
>>8981007Yeah same, it's always this small apartments excuse. Nigga I'm sure your apartment can store at least one clusterfuck mech, these things aren't actual giant robots.
>>8980705You just don't know how to buy this stuff. Just buy these in 5 years off of eBay instead because you clearly don't have the brainpower to buy them new.
>>8981368fucks sake. so this will probably have a neglible impact on secondhand prices
>>8981062What do you search for?
>>8981533Its gone my man, ages ago.
>>8981331>>8981354It's possible it had a lower print run in the first place
>>8981023Fuck it, I’ll keep mine mint in box
>>8981102Not from the same person. The figure is indeed shit like all figures with soft plastic. Toy makers simply don't care.
>>8981023This is definitely worrying that it's happening so soon. I figured it'd be a situation where you keep it on the shelf for two or three and then it disintegrates the next time you try to move it, not QC issues right out of the gate.
>>8981618It's not QC, it's just a shitty rubbery plastic that would eventually break and crack regardless.With how thin, stretchy and bendy that part is, you could tell it wouldn't survive more than a few days hours of play.
>>8981704the flesh of the shoulders looks awesome, it's a shame that the rubber cracks
>>8981704that reviewer has the right idea. 1/6 collectors have dealt with this for years. just use 303 aerospace protectant every three months on rubber and pleather. everything requires maintenance -- some stuff more than others, but we also have threads about keeping plastic from degrading. collectibles require upkeep and care
So Realizing Hopper doesn’t have any of the QC issues that plagued recent releases?
>>8981861Do you think it's best to apply that immediately after getting the figure?
>>8981928Judging by how it exploded right out of box, I’d say Bandai miscalculated it’s joints and the rubber strength so no amount of oil will save you. It’s just like how neo decade, kabuto and the old sic have exploding joints.
>>8981928Yes, because when you first get a figure, it's probably been sitting in warehouses, shipping containers, and store shelves for at least a month.
>>8981861Agreed but personally rubber and pleather are too much maintenance for me. I don't mind dusting plastic figures and keeping them away from UV. So I'd prefer if 1/12 didn't start using common 1/6 techniquesBut as climate change ramps up this will become an issue in other ways. I suspect in a decade or two we'll look back and wonder why we thought twenty million capeshit figures that can't naturally degrade was a good idea. Everyone says "they're collectibles, you're supposed to display them forever" but 99% of plastic figures are flavor-of-the-month shit no one cares about longer than a week. In the mean time I'll enjoy my plastic bugmen
>>8981969This is probably correct, putting rubber that thin over a joint that small with the degree of articulation it has is a terrible idea. Ultraman Tiga will probably turn out better (if you keep it up correctly) because it's not directly over a fucking joint.
What poses are people putting Black in that's causing the rubber to tear? The only things I can think of that use his arms heavily are his trademark pose, and some punching poses.
>>8981861Please be a troll.
>>8982037It doesn't matter, the figure should be able to be put in any pose you want without it tearing.
>>8980886You might be right there.>>8981001I don't know about that. Some final combination mechs aren't really that big. They could have done it Boukenger style, the complete combo of that one was relatively small compared to the rest. But even then, why would they do something like that? Do they want to make less money? The point of a sentai series is to sell every mech.
>>8982115Why would it be a troll? He's right. Literally any collectible that isn't 100% plastic will degrade, and even plastic will degrade if it's not kept in a temperature controlled environment away from UV. The only question is if you're okay with the relative effort of maintenance, which with delicate shit like rubber, it's pretty understandable if you aren't. I hate that shit personally, I didn't preorder Black or Tiga for that reason
>>8982388>The point of a sentai series is to sell every mech.The sales aren't what they used to be, parents no longer buy their kids every single mech, there's more competition than ever before if the final combination requires every single mech the kids are fucked if they missed out on one because they wanted another toy instead at the time
>cashed in my loyalty points and got shining assault hopper and Accel for £78.09 new with postage.Any good happenings my guys?
>>8982399No, he's not right. Having to "perform maintenance" every 3 months on a figure is beyond retarded. I have 40 years old toys that are still perfectly fine with no maintenance at all. This is a fucking toy, not a bonzai.
Do you guys think there's still a chance for SHFSS of the rest of the Kabuto line up? I know the last Kabuto release was a while ago but I don't really follow the news about other Riders so I don't really know if there's precedence for Bandai stopping making SS of a particular show then going back at it years later.
>>8982507i'd say so, there doesn't seem to be rules for how many riders come from each series since kiva got its secondary rider a year after release and dark kiva this year just don't expect god speed love riders anytime soon, even if there aren't rules for SS releases they're more likely to release from the main cast
>>8982500Ok. Do any of your forty year old toys have rubber or pleather on them? What about vac metal? Are they plushies? I've taken great care of my "Pet Monster" from the 80s and the feet look like shit. No? They're just plastic? Then what he said is accurate. There's no magical material that doesn't degrade unless it's made completely out of plastic.
>>8982586And if your argument is "every figure should be made out of plastic because it's stupid to have to maintain rubber and pleather on articulated toys," then I agree with you, dumbass. Seihou should stick to plastic unless the other materials are only covering a part that doesn't articulate.
>>8982586>Do any of your forty year old toys have rubber or pleatherNo, because they weren't made by retards.>vac metalYes, and it's still pristine.>what he said is accurate.No you fucking dumbshit because there's absolutely no reason to use such shitty materials.
>>8982612There are reasons to use shitty materials, like seamless joints. If there weren't reasons, no companies would do it. The price of using those materials is having to maintain the collectibles, which some collectors are fine with doing. I agree with you that those collectors are retards, I don't like to lube up my toys every few weeks. You really have a problem grasping basic logic.
>>8982617>You really have a problem grasping basic logic.Says the autist not understanding a single post he's replying to.
>>8982586Nobody's saying what >>8981861 said about pleather maintenance was wrong. What's wrong is defending products that aren't made to last when they could be made to last simply by not making stupid decisions like using pleather.
>>8982583Thanks. I guess SS TheBee, Drake and Sasword would be a great plus to what's released already but yeah, Caucasus is the one I would really like to see in SS form.
>>8982645unless its lego, funko pops, completely plastic figures, or statues made entirely out of resin, most things aren't made to last. the only reason you dont see more discussions about upkeep on this board is because everyone collects lego, model kits, and 1/12 figures
>>8982670Seems like Necanon has a new friend. How should we call you?
>>8982679take your meds
>>8982670>most things aren't made to last.No, it's the opposite. Most collectibles don't require more upkeep than the basic 'room temperature, stay away from humidity, don't expose to UV, dust once in a while'. Years ago Bandai revealed fully seamless Figuarts at a Tamashii Nations to show off the new technology (nothing came to fruition until now I guess) and people were rightfully shitting on it because no body wants this kind of material on a mid-end action figure toyline. I wouldn't be surprised if Bandai ditches this material like they've done with the "2.0" wrist design on SHFSS Kabuto/Gatack
>>8982723well Black sold out everywhere instantly so hopefully Bandai listens to feedback and not just sales
>>8982740I don't know how durable Black's shoulders are, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Japan/Asia market sent complaints about tearing the material after overextending the range. There are collectors who aren't familiar with the nature of this material because it's rarely ever used for toylines that aren't 1/6 or larger.Fuck, I don't collect 1/6 and I never even knew you had to maintain the damn figure's soft plastic. And I'm sure people wouldn't know that you had to lubricate Black until it's too late and the inevitable happens.
>>8982787oh yeah dude, its a big thing in 1/6. you can watch youtube vids of boomer nerds oiling up their Hot Toys like they're about to fuck a realdoll. its all those autists talk about in those communities
I want to know why the fuck Bandai thought this was even remotely a good idea, If they had to experiment with this shit, why did they do it on Black and Tiga?
>>8983175Still sold. wwww
>have to set a schedule for my monthly scrub down of my Kamen Rider Black
>>8983334We're not your friend bro. We don't need to know what you are planning.
>>8983351You're retarded, my man
>>8983365Maybe so, but now I'm kind of curious about how you will clean the rubber parts of Black.
I feel like for the shoulder rubber bits Bandai could've used cloth with the pattern printed on. They used soft goods on SHF before. There's no issue for covering up the joints and the area is so small I don't think it would be that noticeable.
>>8983370I am scared they will use rubber parts on Fourze.
SHF Kenzan when?
I am terrified of Tiga rotting after the nightmare trying to preorder one was
>>8983351Shut the fuck up you passive aggressive faggot
Rejoice! The SS line is now a proper high-end collectible item that requires the time, resources, and dedication to maintain or it will degrade!
>>8983467Fuck off, Woz.
>>8982586nigger my 1987 G1 transformers are all still pristine, i even bought them on thrift store 2 years again faggot
Bros... I want to believe.
>>8983743me too. seeing how decade's female kiva managed, this will most probably too
>>8983351bro bro bro bro bruuuuuuh bro lul kek
>>8983351We are not your bro too, loser.
Where the FUCK is my minipla Ricky and Cutanner?
>>8983960Release date is probably 2-3 months away.
should i even try getting a ryuki figuarts or am i paying a hefty late tax
>>8984227Wait for the SS Release or grab the model kit.
>>8984227Seems so. The original release with Dragredder is quite pricey on the aftermarket, and the Rider Kicks version that came out a few years ago is sold out mostly everywhere. Maybe go for the Figurize when it comes out, or just wait for the eventual SS version.
>never saw anything about Shining Hopper>see now that it releases this monthMan, I gotta start paying attention
>>8984240Did you mean the SHF? Didn't that come out already?
>>8984242it got a second release
>>8984242Hell if I know. Like I said, I haven't been paying attention.
>>8984240>>8984242>>8984248It was a timed event exclusive that later got put on p-bandai like always.
>>8984228>>8984231I'm no builder, here's hoping the shfss is soon [spoiler]though I worry it might be missing shit considering current shf releases[/spoiler]
SS TIGA ON BBTS FOR $67BASED BLUEFIN
>>8984920But what about the degrading rubber?
>>8984920I was damn-near expecting when SS Tiga was to ever show up on BBTS it'd be with a late tax price and require a downpayment.This is so much better. The 1 per customer might be mad if these have QC problems with the rubber though
>>8984995Huh. Just forgot you could technically buy a backup Tiga if you create a second bbts account.
>>8984920This means Z Original will be on as well.
>>8984938I'm not as worried about it with Tiga because it's not right on top of joints. But I am still worried about it, yeah. That said, I was $120 worried about it. I'm not $67 worried about it.
>>8984920Lol sold out already
>>8984920Good looking out, anon.>>8984995>I was damn-near expecting when SS Tiga was to ever show up on BBTS it'd be with a late tax price and require a downpayment.As long as it's not a P-Bandai release they're usually close to retail price.
>>8985029Holy shit I thought you were trolling. Glad I got one in.
>>8985025It already did like a day or so ago.
>>8984938rubber will probably be fine but the paint will peel offjust you wait
>>8985045Tolong berdoa kepada Allah agar ini tidak rusak.
Anyone own the Realizing Hopper SHF? Was wondering if the plastic they used for the transparent-yellow they used feels different from regular Rising Hopper.
Zero-Two is gonna be a web exclusiveZero-Two (Izu ver.) is gonna be the event exclusive for this year
>>8986263does the costume change when it's her?other than a belly upgrade from tokucollector?
>>8986373>>8986263A shrunken torso, maybe. There's not real difference from Izu's 02 and Aruto's 02.Unless they pull a Metal Build and have Aruto's 02 come with the weapons.
FUCKHope Tiga goes on Amazon maybe....
>>8985281>already goneI'm never going to my hands on this fucking thing.
>>8984883I imagine if anything he'll come with the same amount of accessories as the recent Rider Kicks reissue. Sword, Dragon Head, cards and nothing else.
Well...Sugo Toys just fucked my out of my Tiga preorder. Do not use them as a last resort because they're store page does not reflect product they're able to secure
>>8986263Is this leak anon? Any chance for Rampage or Slash?
>>8986455Same just happened to me, at this rate I'll just buy a scalped one off Amazon JP when he comes out
>>8984920>>8985045So does this confirm Bluefin is getting him to US domestic shops? Can we expect future listings at other stores?
>>8986455So Sugo Toys isn't trustworthy to get Figuarts from them? Goddamnit, they had the most reasonable prices compared to other sites I've seen.
Wow you guys really like Tiga huh.But for me, it's Ultraseven
So, trolling/shilling aside, how long would the soft parts of SHFSS Black last in a bland standing pose if I don't oil them up?
>>8986963you think we have a time machine?
There was an anon a few threads back that wanted to know about ZAIA's keys.Here you go.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nKh3S-R7EA
>>8986963>action figure>don't pose itwhat's even the point
>>8986963All that rubber shit degrades fairly quickly unless you've got it in an environmentally controlled area and treat it regularly..I love the proportions but I'm sticking with my renewal versions
>>8986769Like tokullectibles they over promise and under deliver. Buyer beware.
>>8987184It looks better than any released statue.
>>8987190It sucks that there really isn't any good local places to get P-Bandai Figuarts in Australia. Mandarake is a no-go for what I'm trying to find (MetalCluster Hopper)
>>8986963Yeah, I'm just going to have mine in his basic henshin pose next to battle hopper and call it a day. Not gonna put him through the paces like most of my figures. Sucks but what can you do, I love Kamen Rider Black
>>8987265Speaking of Battle Hopper... the Seihou releases don't really fit with the bikes they put out, right, unless you're just having them stand next to it? Like they'd look weird if you tried to have them ride them? Or am I wrong?
>>8987261MCH just released, give it a couple weeks for Manda to slow down a little.
>>8987270We need a new Battle Hopper.
>>8987261I'm starting to think that Mandarake has a bot problem. Every night I check when they start uploading new figures. Metal Cluster Hopper, Rocking Hopper, Realizing Hopper and any recent SS release sell out INSTANTLY.
>>8987265If I can find an SS for a decent price, I think I'll try to fix it by using some parts from the renewal.
Does anyone know of any blogs or other resources that has some reasonably high resolution pictures of toku toy boxes? I'm trying to make up some little 1/12 scale versions, but I can't find anything but front shots. Newer stuff is easier because of YouTube reviewers, but the older I go the harder it gets.
>>8987963high res won't matter that much at 1/12
it might look better if I leave it transparent at the middle
>>8987963Try Robot Toy Days Blog. He does pictures of the boxes, fronts, sides, bottoms a well as the toys. Mostly sentai stuff tough.https://robotoydays.com/
>>8988246Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks bro.
>>8988542Comes with his funny sword mode.
>>8988542>>8988606Thank god he comes with normal Saikou
>>8988542>gaudy upgrade instead of the sexy simple base form Well at least it comes with the normal sword
>>8988647>instead of the sexy simple base formyou know what, I'm inclined to agree, it does have its charm, I keep thinking of the CG look but the actual physical suit is pretty nice, and you could even give it the X Swordsman arm piece
How nice of Tamashii to give him the Thousand Jacker
>>8988680even has the hell rising hopper progrise key in there
>>8988670Probably will get that one later. X-Swordman is easier to engineer, I guess. >>8988680>>8988692>Not the Zero-Two key. Okay?
>>8988709I guess they could've included it since it was the catalyst for making the Hell Rise Key, sure. More importantly, when's Lucifer?
>>8988670I can see this being a Tamashii event exclusive.
>>8988680Will it come with the effect piece for the time limit?
>>8985025>>8985281>sold outGod dam it hope tokullectible puts it up
>>8988850Yes, it's listed on the page. >>8988837Aren't Event Exclusives usually a main rider/character? Besides Diend, I guess. I'm betting Primitive is that exclusive, seeing as he fits the trend of "Transitionary" forms along with Shining Hopper, and RT Hazard.
>>8988858I always thought Tamashii event exclusives were black forms, they had Genm for example as exclusive.
I need this as a SHF!
>>8988860Black repaints of the main rider, I guess. Genm, Proto-Drive, and Diend being examples, I guess?
>>8988878That is true, it's a easy repaint for them. I would be happy with Primitive.
Has anyone gotten this? I haven't seen pictures of how it looks on the actual DX.
>>8989081On it's way to me finally after a week lolI'll make a post when I get it
>>8989081>>8989085Wait, isn't it releasing in like september?
>>8989088Been out for awhileJust nobody has really ordered or got it in to showcase
>>8989081There's pics underneath the main one in your screenshot. It looks better but is a lot thinner than it is in the show. No real getting around that without replacing the entire sword
I wonder how long it'll be before we get third party replacement parts for Black and Tiga made of proper plastic
>>8989484A cloth replacement probably for Black, probably not long for that one. Tiga probably a month or two after he releases.
Tokullectibles never shipped my SHF-Upgrade Alpha Chain Blade
>>8989506Your first and only mistake was buying from Tokullectibles. Lemme guess all the famous people already have it?
>>8989529Say what you want about tokullectibles, they're still better than nin-nin-game.
Anyone know if there is a difference between the 2012 release for the medicom blade rah and the 2017 one?
>>8988736I get what they were going for with Lucifer, but Eden is so much better as a design. The bright red and deep blue together are really striking and memorable.
>>8989841To be honest, I didn't get what they were going for with Lucifer until I saw him transform. Then the whole "skeleton" thing connected. Not terribly striking, but an easy repaint...but with next to no possibilities for new accessories.
>>8989529Not that anon but I preorder and wearable arm and sic faiz. So tokullectible were 2 for 2 in my book.
May have snagged a MCH last night. Here's to hopping I beat the clock.
>>8990089Hope ya made it, MCH is imo the best zero one release so far
>>8990283It looks so fucking good. Is Golden Week still going on? Cause if not I should know tonight if I was successful or not.
>>8990334yep, golden week is over so fingers crossed that you snagged that MCH
>>8989529Don't be mad that the "famous people" actually preorder their stuff on day 1 and you wait till later and expect to get it before them. They pay for fast shipping and order day one, maybe you should try that and you can be famous too! Good luck with your 50 followers Eugene!
>>8990334Golden Week barely ended, it's almost 5 AM in Japan right now. We should see stuff being shipped out tonight or tomorrow morning our time.
anyone on the fence about fullcarttoys, i bought the repro gaia memories from them last month, took about 3 weeks to get here but they are as advertised.
>>8989529>Being this salty and trollingboo boo baby
>>8987270Depends on the bike. New Ichigo and Nigo came out with a New Cyclone reissue that was just the old chassis with a new hood, so theoretically even with the older bike they'll ride well. Pose-intensive bikes like the Old Cyclone and especially the Road Sector are completely fucked. Worse for Road Sector considering even the renewal Black from the 2010s (which the bike was made for) can't ride it properly with the Attack Shield deployed.>>8987323We already have 2 Battle Hoppers. One that Bandai no longer admits to having made and one that actually looks correct and not like a metallic piece of shit. Both are literally flat recasts of Sochaku Henshin toys under the Figuarts branding so we're pretty due for a renewal. Same with Acrobatter.
Hey for anyone who has purchased from SHFUpgrade, how long did they take to ship you order? Also did it have tracking?
>>8991943It took close to two weeks and no tracking.
>>8991943Bout a week or so and I got trackingGot my CSM Belt stuff in from FullCart too
Does zenkai gears have chips in them or is it just the shape of the outside that triggers the sounds on the toys?
>>8991996It's the shapeAs you turn the crank it essentially spins along a pin code pattern to detect which one is in.
>>8990283>>8990405Just go the order confirmation and paid for it. My MCH hunt is over.
The paint on the Tiga prototype is already starting to crack, pack it in, boys.
>>8992759>>8992762I can't even fathom the backlash Bandai is going to get for fucking up one of the most iconic Kamen Riders and one of the most iconic Ultramen within months of each other.
Ninin just shipped my shining assault hopper and Accel. Hopefully everything else will start up
>>8992796I am begging for a third party fix
I wonder if Bandai will even offer replacement parts for all the cracked rubber on Black and Tiga
