I wish more western video games got toys. I remember back in the day when Bioshock, Killzone, Gears of War, Resistance, Rachet and Clank, and bunch of other video games had toys readily available in all stores, not just GameStop.
>>
gamers don't buy toys
children buy toys hence fortnite, FNAF, roblox and minecraft continuing to get new toys
>>

That's not true. Halo and Gears of War were very popular toylines back in the day.

who the fuck cares about gears of war? gamers do not buy toys
>>
>>9080226
Gamers do not buy toys. They knoe post and bitch and moan about never being catered to when its clear they'd rather simp for twitch thots and epic chungus wungus NFTs instead of physical objects due to the western communist influence schooling has where material possessions are sinful.

Gamers would rather meme about CyberPunk instead of supporting the brand and buying the toys, instead they buy the game and make hella epic meme videos on youtube with the pog champ reaction and meme voice lines such as 'door stuck' 'ohbaby and triple' '360 noscoooope mom get the camerra'
>>
>>9080229
NECA's Gears of War line was very popular. You also have Assassin's Creed, both Mega and Neca, which were popular. I'm not sure about Destiny, but those toys had its fans. Also you are assuming that only gamers will buy the toys. Some people buy toys just because they look interesting. That's why Fornite and Apex Legends are doing well.
>>
>>9080243
fortnite and apex succeed where overwatch failed ie appealed to children whereas blizzard is a boomer business ran by dumbasses proclaiming quality story telling when its LoTR/Warhammer knock off.
>>
>>9080256
That's just cherry-picking. Overwatch is infamous for being hard to sell as toys. Both Lego and Figma tried and both failed.
>>9080238
Cyberpunk seems to be successful on the toyfront. Most of the reviewers I watched liked the Johnny SIlverhand and V.

Whens the last time you've left your room, incel? Children enjoy toys.

>>9080265
OW failed to sell because almost all merch of it came out well after the game had begun its downwards spiral. The 3rd party Widowmaker not-figma that got teased and released in 2017 was insanely desired and tons of people got ahold of it before the official version got announced. Then by the time the Hasbro toys were out along with the rest of the figmas, the game had already hit Brigitte meta and had a dying esports scene and a violent hemorrhage of players. If they had just got their shit together and released stuff in 2017 or 2018 instead of 2019 they would've been flying off the shelves.

I remember when they released a series of figures for Legend of Dragoon, and not a single damn one of them was in a dragoon armor at all. Just the regular normal non-powered characters.

what the fuck was the point?

>>9080368
The important thing is that people keep replying to this guy despite him being more obvious and more disruptive than subby.
>>
>>9080371
Doesn't that mean they're engaging in ideas and finding reasons to back up their claims? Its not like he's wrong about Minecraft succeeding when so many other video game series have failed.
>>
>>9080371
It's lose/lose, really.
He spams bait in threads, once he takes up residence he'll keep posting shit and reply to every new comment with bait until he gets a response.
Jannies don't exist here so his shit lingers and since /toy/ is slow his bait can be around for awhile in multiple threads for months and given that time frame someone is bound to reply.
>>
>>9080380
Sounds to me like a win on all fronts, people engage in ideas they might have never had and go search for evidence on why they might be right.

Didn't he say "Gamers don't buy toys" ? How is that statement wrong when its clear as day Gamers do not support physical toy sales when Team Fortresses 2 does better than the N*ca action figures do on second hand markets?
>>
Wow, Gamers really do want to live in a hu box community when its clear brands they like have no sway at retail unlike Fortnite, FNAF, Minecraft, Roblox and over child centric games. When will you boomers learn children are the majority of toy sales and not grump adults?

The Mcfarlane MGS 1 figures were great for the time. The MGS 2 figures were ass. Fragile as fuck and size was all over the place. I do have to admit he at least made full or almost full teams in waves, unlike other companies that do 1 character and call it a day.

>>9080383
How is it a win? 1 out of 5 posts in this thread are him shitposting, possibly more, this is literally every thread on the board. People quickly find out he's one guy shitposting, tell him to kill himself, and he continues spamming his bullshit. Nobody wins at all. If this were IRL the guy would've been beaten, kicked out of the house/place of business/ work and excluded form the group, on busier boards he would've been banned several times over. Here he just shitposts all the time all day every day until he eventually gets banned again and we have a week or two of peace before he's at it again like the human failure he is.

So you mean the masses began accepting games during the generation that gave them the most typical expected content they could have? Wow, who could have imagined. Who knew all they had to do was change every companies focus from cartoon platformers into six hour cinematic experiences with one sad cutscene per game. I'm glad zoomers accidentally hacked the system by being so lazy yet fomo that they all just fucking watch two hour "game: all cutscenes: the movie" on youtube now.

Kat shelfwarmed because she's a garbage character froma abd game, she's only okay on 4, and gets worse in 5. Blame the Coalition for rebooting a franchise made for men into an SJW women worship fest.

I would say the age for toys to be " uncool" has lowered severely. any kids i've seen in the toy aisles isn't older than third grade. The last time I saw a misdle schooler in the lego aisle-- he commented on how " why would anyone pay 200 dollars for legos?!"

The issue with Sonys Ips at least was Sony really didnt give a shit about doing figures above maybe a 1 off Novelty every now and then.
Think the chimera had 4 or 5 different figures, GoW3 had a decent line from Neca, and the Helghast had a handful of the standard soldiers and sniper figures made.

Rarest toy you'll find of the helghast is a small bag of killzone toy soldiers, half isa, half helghast. Was only given out to some reviewers and prizes and such.
>>

You can still find the Chimera at decent prices from time to time. I loved the resistance series but was always kinda meh on the figures but I honestly wouldnt mind having the guns that came with em.
