Wonderfest Shanghai 2021 is getting two exclusive variants: Honda in his Hyper Fighting color scheme, and Demitri in his blue P2 color, which looks like it could also double as a more promo art-accurate color as opposed to the sprite-accurate blue-grey of the normal version.
It looks like alternate Demtiri has the same orange accessories. Would have been neat to see them cast in cyan, but the figure looks nice regardless.
>>9086130Waiting for the bbts pre orders on demitri.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yH5huRAMBU In honor of Hyper Fighting color Honda, here's a rundown of Honda in that game, where he was one of the top tiers. In moonspeak, but the demonstrations tend to speak for themselves.
>>9086130Can't wait to see how ugly Morrigan will be
>>9086145Dunno if I should wait and get that alternate demitri or just get sagat while I have the chance. Would get both but I'm on a budget at the moment.
WHERE IS HE
>>9086424Sagat is still there I think he got a restock but you never know with SC they'll just run out and you'll pay double the price.Demitri hasn't really been out of retails yet in America aside from Hong Kong.
>>9086200I wouldn't call him top tier in HF though. Even Super turbos brain dead ochio throw version was mid at best. He loses extremely hard to fireball characters which in this version are super duper good.Also keep in mind JP wasn't really well versed in Hyper Fighting/Turbo. I mean here is what they think the tier list is.RyuKenHondaSagatBlankaDhalsimGuileBoxerChun LiZangiefDictatorClaw
>>9088328Yes to Shermie, but no to that shit-ass outfit. '98 Shermie or nothin.
>>9086130If you wanted Storm to make figures for an IP unrelated to fighting games, beat 'em ups, martial arts anime or anything else related to those three categories, what would it be and why? Personally, I'd want them to do a toyline for Smite. Mainly because there's not a lot of good mythology themed toylines out there. The closest I could find was some obscure crowdfunded line that shared a name with one of the Elder Scrolls games and I'm still not sure it'll still come out after so many delays. I tried looking for it on BigBadToyStore but had no luck. Either way, a Smite line from Storm would be cool.
>>9088338I don't dislike the new outfit, but yeah, 97/98 outfit Shermie is betterDunno if the new KOF game will have alternative costumes for the characters, I don't like the new outfit for some of the fighters, like Leona or Kyo
>>9088357Kung Pow! Enter the FistNo reason needed
If anyone’s interested BBTS has the Gears of War Warden back up.
>>9088678Was sold out instantly.I guess someone returned it I do want it for the cog helmet.
>>9088357Ha, you only said martial arts anime.
>>9088357WWE figures. Attitude, Ruthless and some modern figures. Must buys: Undertaker, Kane, Stone Cold, Rock and Fiend.
>>9087500ikr. i would love to add him to my collection.
>>9088357Team fortress 2 or world of warcraft
>still no KingGOD WHY?!
>>9089036Because I touch myself at night.
The virgin 'make figures from beloved iconic franchises' vs the chad storm keep making golden axe figures
>>9089026>>9089028Are those darker skeletons?I thought they were just unpainted but the shields seem to have new weathering.
>>9089026>>9089029I really wish the mounts were sold separately. I would love a couple of the dragons, but I have no need for muscleman in a speedo...and I actually really liked the original Golden Axe. But the character designs were not one of the game's draws for me.
>>9089104>still no FOTNS>>9089029face looks ok
>>9089104Tokita looks good. I need Kanoh Agito. That being said I think Storm might be taking the title for my favorite company right now.
>>9089029They fucked up the hair. I think it's based off the box art or something.
>>9089032Seaweed head looks great, can't wait for the inevitable Advance form too.
>>9089032damn i'd be all over the golden axe figures but the scale is too big, they don't scale well at all with 6"
>>9089026>>9089028>>9089029>>9089032>>9089104It's great to finally see a mostly complete Ohma Tokita figure, as well as the other two Golden Axe characters. The kengan fighters I'd like to see Storm do the most are Saw Paing Yoroizuka, Mokichi Robinson and Akoya Seishuu because they each practice a martial art that's obscure by fighting game standards (lethwei, bartitsu, taiho jutsu), which I know Kengan Ashura isn't a fighting game, but you get what I mean.
>>9089104STILL NO GEESE HOWARD...
>>9089349>Announce Mai, Geese, Blue Mary, and Orochi>Release image of unpainted Mai prototype>Show off painted prototype of Orochi>Still nothing on Geese and Blue MaryYeah it's weird
>>9089104>No Balrog>No Juri
>>9088624lol That would be great. >>9088729Technically Cobra Kai would fall under the "or anything else related to those three categories" camp, but Cobra Kai would still be cool. I need to check out that show. It's now on Netflix instead of YouTube Premium, right? >>9088732Even though this isn't technically correct, I view Pro-Wrestling as a quasi martial art by viryue of fighting games including pro-wrestlers in their rosters. But yeah, WWE would be a great IP to see Storm utilize. I know of the Attitude Era, but what does "Ruthless" mean in this context? >>9088889Those are excellent choices. Especially Team Fortress 2.
>>9089349>>9089355>>9089364As much as I like to know that they have future releases, it would be so much better if they had a finished product WITH a release date. In the previous SC thread about Virtual Fighter, anon half joked but fully stated facts that you will not see VF Akira for a few years.
>>9089367>I know of the Attitude Era, but what does "Ruthless" mean in this context?Ruthless Aggression Era. Early 2000s, around when Cena, Orton and Brock made their debuts.
They showing off anything else, or was that everything? Gonna need that Tyris.
>>9088357I don't need an entire line but I think Storm would be one of the choices to make a Fate Heracles, they're great at giant muscle monsters.
>>9089562Dear god please, both modern and classic
>>9089026>>9089029I wish storm did reissues since I wasn't too thrilled on speedo man with out his friends. Or at least do is GA2 version.
>>9089026>>9089029>>9089104>Golden Axe gets every major character from the first game plus mutliple releases of skellies>SOR is still just Axel
>>9089377>anon half joked but fully stated facts that you will not see VF Akira for a few years.Pretty much spot on. When they finally have a teaser/prototype, you can expect it to be released about a year later. This has happened with many of their releases. To those of you waiting on King, you still have a wait ahead of you. I love Storm, they're making the best figures out there but they are taking on too many licenses at once. It really shows with their painfully slow releases.
Whose dick do I have to suck to get Dom?
>>9089434Thanks for the clarification. >>9089562Doom would be cool. >>9089580Not sure what IP is that, but is that a Draugr (viking zombies)? >>9089587Huh, didn't think of Fate as an option for Storm since Figma already has that license. But that would still be a pretty cool idea as well.
>>9090079Death Dealer by Frank FrazettaA Frank Frazetta line (including Conan) would be cool.
>>9090079>Huh, didn't think of Fate as an option for Storm since Figma already has that license. But that would still be a pretty cool idea as well.Other companies are allowed to make Fate figures as far as I know since Sentinel has made at least 4 of them with one only coming out last month.But yeah I don't ever expect them to get the liscence, this is more of a pipe dream.If they did though other servants like Spartacus or Kintoki would fit their style too imo.
>>9089029So, is this the second female they release, after Chun-li? Her face is a massive improvement, compared to smoker, eyebags Chun-li, my hopes for her Morrigan have been renewed.
>>9089029watch her never be released like hte MK ninja girls.
I recently got their Lobo figure and I'm very happy with it, I'm a bit concerned about longevity of the rubber though.
Anyone get their Jin Kazama? Post your pics.
>>9089032This is the only image out, correct? I'm kind of worried because it looks like he has a long face, like the eyes are too high.
>>9094012Are you talking about the soft plastic upper torso? It should hold up well. My oldest Storm figure is about 4 years old now without any problems. Hot Toys used rubber in some of their figures and they started to rot/tear fairly quickly, within a year if I remember correctly.
>>9094257im on the fence about him. on one hand, not like there's gonna be another jin from any other company. but im not too into the face sculpts
>>9095508>within a yearJesus Christ
>>9095657To be fair, I think it was tearing that was occurring that quickly. The elbows started to give way first from the articulation/posing. I remember it was a big issue with RE5 Chris. There were other figures that used the seamless rubber body but they quickly phased them out, I'm assuming.
>>9095657Theres also the recent IW Goku that didnt last long having suffered the same issue.Storm has experimented with soft plastic on joints with the Golden Axe Death Adder, we'll have to see how that goes but I imagine it'll be much the same on the knees and elbows.
>>9095508It'll last a long time if you take care of it. None of the rubber or pleather on my Hot Toys has cracked. Only problem I've had with Storm is the belt on my Sektor has faded despite not being in sunlight. They feel like they're bound to fall apart any day sometimes, especially my Shao Khan that's almost all rubber.
Has anyone got their Demitri yet?
>>9089029This is a good looking figure and I'll probably pick this one up. However, seeing them make a visibly muscular female character just makes me wanna see their Taki all the more.
>>9095720plastic covered joints look like shit anyway.Always looks like a fucking tube, instead of a proper elbow.I'd rather take Yamaguchi's retarded engineering over those meat tubes
>>9097484Yamaguchi figures may be ugly when it comes to joints but they're the best damn action figures around.
How is Jin?
>>9098452got mine in last week, and honestly, i love it. neutral face is pretty meh, but who's gonna leave him with his neutral one?
on that note, i wish there was an updated sfv ryu. he's such a manlet compared to jin and akuma
>>9099963Is there any chance of getting the classic MK ninjas for a decent p rice?
>>9099969i wish, i'd love a masked sub zero to go with scorpionim on the fence about maskless mk3 sub; the accessories make it worth but i just overall prefer his masked version
>>9099963Hasn't he always been short next to Akuma?
>>9099963>no SC Sagat to compare height
>>9100300Their official stats only have them 3 cm apart, and their in-game sprites/models are usually about the same height. The Alpha 2 box art is just for dramatic effect.
>>9086130What the fuck is up with those Tekken King teasers that take a long ass time to be revealed? Hate when they do that shit just reveal the damn figure.
>>9100915Ah, I see. Thanks.>>9100919Welcome to Storm. It's what they do. They are very slow with teasers, reveals and releases. Don't expect any more updates on King for a while.
>>9099963Jin looks awful
>>9099963Jin looks great. Also>that Okita and Guda Guda glassBased
>>9089029wish the hair was way different. That looks way too big...
>>9100919How long has it been since they teased Johnny Cage?
>>9088357Fuck yes do SMITE please. I love this game since 2012. I would say God of War and Marvel because that would be awesome. If they do SMITE I will buy them all.
>>9101430God, whose dick over that storm collectibles HQ do I have to suck to get a Judge Dredd.
>>9101803I just want a proper mythology based toyline to collect since it's such a rare action figure concept that has plenty of toyetic potential. There's one obscure Chinese crowd funded toyline, but I'm not even sure if it got off the ground yet, if at all. I'd probably go for a Storm Smite line over pic related because the chances of Smite having a Turco-Mongolian or Tibetan pantheon are much higher than an OG Chinese IP. I'll show why in the next post. (1/2)
>>9103211As you can see, those are clearly Qing Dynasty era borders. So assuming this line doesn't end up dead on arrival, the chances of this company making figures for a Turco-Mongolian and/or Tibetan pantheon aren't as high compared to if Storm did a Smite line. Also, since Storm is more established than whatever the company that made pic related is, a Smite toyline from Storm has the chance to become the definitive mythology toyline for collectors if they play their cards right. Either way, a Smite line from Storm would definitely be the first line from them that didn't involve martial arts (fighting games, beat 'em ups, pro-wrestling, movies, tv shows, etc.) that I'd buy from them.
>>9103211>I just want a proper mythology based toyline to collect since it's such a rare action figure concept that has plenty of toyetic potential.Yeah, definitely this.
>>9103211>>9104310I was so excited when GSC announced they were doing a megateb pixie figma since I thought it meant we might get more demons from the series. What I would give for a high quality line of Kaneko's demons.
Death Adder Review:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiD7XEjA_HMLooks like a great figure. Still not sure about the seamless body. It looks great but no idea if it's going to tear. The good news is that it's made of the same soft plastic that Storm uses for the upper torsos.
Soon my brothers and sisters
>>9110142You'd think Storm learned their lesson about Gears.
>>9110514The Locust seem to sell well but the other characters are a different story.
