I guess play/bring arts ain't all bad.
>>9318751I want one too but for cheaper
>>9318773Good luck, I don't think this is gonna shelf-warm.
>STILL waiting for Edea, the Ragnarok ship, More FF IV and VI stuff, and a ton fo toher things>Square-Enix Playarts: "you'd like that, huh? Well here's the 400th version of Cloud!"
>>9318751I really hate that Square has their own toyline. I really do. I'd love to get this guy but I sure as hell don't want to pay $150 for it. Goddamn wanting decent FF merch is a never ending struggle.
>>9318751I’d kill for a figuarts pricing of all the dragon quest and KH characters I wanted. But $90 each is a hard no
>>9318773don't you mean...>cheeper
>>9318751No but Im that poor. A few yeara ago they were about 4000 to 5000 then I wanted KH3 Riku 20 and Sora 2.0 which were 7000ish now Neo TWEWY are 8000 ish which is just 100 in my currency so Im out...
>>9318898how dare you make me laugh
>>9318751I got my PAK 2B man she is quality not gonna lie, was worried. Tifa wasn't as good as it should have been, Good but no where near as good as Aerith or this 2B
>>9319946The PAK next to my Bring Arts, So anyone that is eyeing that version, unless you are a scalefag I think you should pass on it and go for the PAK
>>9319950The Ass tech is not Figma levels but other than making the joints all the way up to the one-piece suit idk how you'd do it.
>>9319952The face uses that kind of "dot matrix" stuff and it looks better than what they used to do. Or shall I saw what they did for Tifa. Even Aerith has this kind of face printing.
>>9318751>make a stand-alone chocobo figure>use literally the single worst chocobo design of all timeThat's how it is on this bitch of an earth.
>>9318751Wheres your Shantotto?
>>9318751I'm still pretty pleased with Erik. He's the only figure from the line that I've bought, but apart from a couple of really minor issues, he's a blast. I've thought about buying some other figures, like DQIII Erdrick, or Steiner and Vivi, but I don't wanna press my luck, not for these prices.
>>9319969Looks cute to me.
>>9319969This is my favorite chocobo design
>>9319946>>9319950>>9319952>>9319956Honestly, it doesn't look that bad. Might get her myself.
>>9319952make her bend over please
>>9319946I don't mean to insult your 10k something purchase but damn man, look at those knees and arms. The gaps make me think like they're bootlegs or something.Does it have drop down legs? and how is the arm articulation?
>>9320184It doesn't have drop down legs but the arm articulation is like a 7.5/10 Not the greatest but they are good. You won't be seeing her do Revoltech poses . But she can move her arm across her chest.
>>9320448these aren't my pics cuz I am too lazy to pose and take pics but she looks good in action.
>>9318821>wants IV and VI but not VAmericans.
>>9319950those are some huge pussy flaps.
>>9320454who are the good characters in 5 again?
>>9320448Thanks for the response, I think I’m gonna stick with the bring arts still, PAK still has these weird decisions on articulation and paint that I can’t get on board with, completely halted me from getting the MGSV stuff and Arkham knight. If anything I’ll at least go BA for the based 2P design.
>>9320151it's gap central. Think the Storm collectibles Cammy.
>>9320169What mando is this?
This one actually looks pretty good. The only bring arts I own are Nier, Emil and Kaine and they kind of turned me off the line. Emil is good but the other two are meh. They're not completely awful but not worth the price.
Am I going to have to fucking buy this?
>>9320580Butz and Goof.
>>9322028Sold out on AmiAmi, pre-ordered on SE's official site. Feel like I got scammed.
>>9322133Cheaper at BBTS
>>9322152Well, I'll remember that next time.
Well, I went searching for pics and have returned with a quite a bounty. Commence Choco-dump.
Thanks for the pics anon. You pushed me over the edge and I preordered
>>9322459No problem anon, I enjoy fishing for good pics on Japanese twitter.Btw pre-ordered? Is there a second run coming? HLJ currently has 1(one) more in stock:https://www.hlj.com/final-fantasy-xi-bring-arts-chocobo-action-figure-enx35481They've got more of the combo pack with the midget characters though.
>>9322461I continue to be impressed how good everything looks riding this figure.
>>9322465It can even hold giants like Ace.
>>9322492Bum + plug for the stand
Closing out my dump with a nice stop-motion
Where are the in-hand pics? Shouldn't these be out already?
Also, why in the world did FFIX get a complete line of figures? The entry got a lot of love with merchandise, seemingly out of nowhere.
Did they fix Tifa's face yet?
>>9321172Mafex it is.
It looks pretty great, but I'm not paying this much for a single figure of that size.
>>9318751You can finally play as Chaucauboo
>>9323167fuck off retard not like theres many better places
Should I pull the trigger?
is SE going to milk this for colors and alt parts or go back to making Clouds?
>>9327575I wouldn't mind that color scheme
>>9327568No because that bike looks like shit compared to the Hardy-Daytona.
>>9327575If thats what it takes to get more ff11 characters, I'll keep buying in
thought i'd ask hereis the Bring Arts Nier and Emil worth getting?i'm only missing them from my ba nier collection but the price seem not justified together with its bad quality. is there a silver lining to this set?
>>9322438>golden kushana knightjealous of whoever owns this
>green chocobo>paired with nonameProbably going to be the way but better than not getting some more if these are good.
>>9327568if you're getting the bootleg, yes.
>>9318751So they made cute terror bird?
>>9328249I own it and the joints aren't loose at all on either. Nier's face isn't so great and and his articulation isn't great either. Emil himself is pretty good, though. I certainly wouldn't pay aftermarket value for it but if you can get it close to the original price and really like the game then it's really your only option.
>>9322502Strange seeing Shantotto being this nice. However, I guess this animation will suffice.
>preordered from Us Se store because importing was iffy back then>delayed to NovemberI need it now
Is there anyway to tighten the neck joint? I have the second form Sora and I foolishly thought to put his alternate head on and I guess that stretched out the joint to the point where his smiling head just sorta flops off. I've tried heating it up but it didn't seem to take, should I just try again? Or just say fuck it and get that new KH3 Sora coming out "soon"
>>9318764>craving my mcnuggies?
I don’t know how they fucked up shokas face when they did really good on rindo and sho
>>9320580I want a Gilgamesh. Exdeath would be cool too.
>>9320454I’d rather get IIIt. American
>>9327575Fuck, I hope they make a shit ton in a bunch of colors. I'd buy multiple and them being easier to find wouldn't be bad either..
>>9327575Why not both ?
Need a dang KO of that chocobo already.
Anyone know...are the Tifas coming in to BBTS today the ones with the fixed faces?
~$200 but xenogears tho...
>>9346222One of the few things that would make me drop 200 on a figure. Another would be a Deus awakened form figure, that would likely be even more.
>>9346222If there's no QC issues, its probably worth it
>>9346222>>9346225Fuck that's tempting. But really not sure if it's worth $200.
>>9346298Really depends on1. How much you like Xenogears2. How much you like the design3. Your cashflow4. Outside risk SE fucks it up somehowPretty much only you can answer it for yourself by weighing the factors.
>>9318777>>9320169fuck me that's a big bird
>>9346298I justify it as being the only time this figure will ever get made.
Just set up my girl and she's good despite a loose left thigh on the midriff body. she's my first bring arts, and the only gripe is the stand clamp; I'd take a hole in her back, figma style over it
Hoping the Bring Arts Rindo is good
I know there is no point asking this but why Bring Arts is so fucking expensive?
>>9347320SE being so far up their ass. Do they even use foreign factories? Shit looks DIY as fuck
>>9347320More importantly, why are you poor?
>>9347320Because Square holds the exclusive rights to make figures of these characters & thus charge whatever they like because of absolutely no competition.
>>9347334Based. More companies should practice this.
>>9346222The SE store has an exclusive decal sheet to make it look like it does during the CG cutscenes, almost tempted to buy a second but I assume it’s not even waterslides with their cheap asses.
>>9347352>$200 >put on the stickers yourselfWhat the fuck man.
>>9347674>im crippled and need my toys made for me
Dress Aerith was announced recently. Is anyone hyped?
>>9347674Yeah I agree it’s insane, especially considering this isn’t some Katoki style gundam bullshit that isn’t in the anime; it has the markings visible in the game. I can only assume they were omitted because they know their QC is so shit they couldn’t manage tampo print.
>>9347696Waiting for tifa dress
>>9347696That dress articulation looks pretty clever.
>>9347704>With that face that is still shitty in the ver 2Honestly, I wouldn't even bother with Tifa anything. Square will undoubtedly fuck it up somehow.
That will be $154.99 + shipping.
>>9347732I honestly hate these stands.
>>9347702Yeah its ridiculous considering how bandai shit thats around this price range has decals slapped everywhere.
>>9346222>>9346225Wasn't it pretty much the same size as Weltall in the game?Anyway the exclusive decal sheet is pure scam. Why not releasing the retail version with no head next time?
>>9347849Nah, it is bigger than weltall in the game too, his backpack basically turns into limb extensions and I think the other characters refer to it as a giant gear a few times during the story.
>>9346222>>9346225Please buy it people. It will show Square that there is love for the other aspects of Xeno past waifushit & maybe we'll get Xenosaga suff that isn't endless Kosmos & Telos.
>>9347909Square has no control over xenosaga, thats purely bamco
will there ever be a bring arts Tifa or is she too Important to ever be small?
>>9347738They're not amazing, but they're way better than what we had before.
Am I a fool if I buy this given the people's issues with her face?
>>9333961it's the nose.also fret and nagi when?
>>9347732What the fuck is that secondary face?
Is there a play arts that DOESN'T use bullshots for its promotional photos?Bring Arts has been fine in my experience but Play Arts is so frustrating with its dimly lit photos and cheap cosplayer dead inside faces
>>9353408Is it just due to the low detail nature of the bring arts faces? Maybe play arts is actually too big and it creates an uncanny valley effect with the expressions
>>9351293her face is not that bad just go for it butcould be better. NECA has some ugly female faces, supposedly square is going to release another face/head for tifa free of charge
>>9354327I hear this all the time. I think it's more than likely that they will make a 2.0.....
>>9319946Got her a while back now. She is nice but...were is the paint? No panel lines on the shoulders no dirt? She is so clean for A2
>>9354606 ass shot for those who would ask
>>9354606You can see in the promos that she had dirt everywhere
>>9318751I don't follow this line and completely slept on this, do they ever do reprints?
>>9354625Only if it's Cloud from FF7 desu other than that not really, these days they mostly do 2.0 if they want to release a figure of the same character and design
>>9354611>>9354608>>9354606I really do not like how they falsify the promos so much.The face even looks rather different but there are subtle differences all over.
>>9354606Figurines from China, Modified version, Different from other versions.There will be a little flaw,Perfectionist careful to buy.
>>9354866Nah it’s just classic PAK bait and switch, they use bullshots all the time in promos
>>9354878Please understand that should be illegal
>>9318751This thread made me order the bird
>>9347732Is your wallet powerful enough to make Aeris coom?
>>9354938What a waste. Surrounded by all these doctored promo pics and you order the only accurate one. SE marketing dept is mad at you.
>>9355349What are you on about? I ordered based on these anons.>>9322433>>9322434>>9322438>>9322440>>9322442>>9322446>>9322451>>9322455>>9322458>>9322461>>9322464>>9322465>>9322474>>9322478>>9322485>>9322489
>>9355364All the other figures that arent chocobos ITT
I’m really loving this line. Just missing the last 4 and I’ll be done.
>>9355701Steiner should be called Dusty instead of Rusty. Dust your shit.
>>9355701Fuck, I wish they weren't so expensive.
>>9354825I think the face looks fine it's just my shitty lighting. I am sure if I had a set up to light it the way it is in that promo it would like closer.
>>9356093Same. I keep buying them used or with fucked up boxes to get them at reasonable prices.
>>9356093unfortunately being that only SQAURE can makes figures of their own characters they can charge whatever the fuck they feel like it. it aint even look at the price all i did was swipe. cry now laugh later. beats paying a scalper thats for sure. i really wanted a PAK yuna and motherfuckers was charging 1300K for her.
>>9356550Better just to boycott them entirely. Square Enix is a corpse that's been rotting in the sun for almost 20 years now
>>9355364All me :)
>>9318751How does Bring Arts Sora 2.0 compare to the original? Is it worth getting?
>>9359075It's basically the same figure with a slightly more polished sculpt and different accessories. If you want a Sora and don't have one, it's fine (overpriced, but all Bring Arts are), but if you already have the first version, save your money.
>>9347732People who buy from scalpers have really fucked the toy market as toy makers now see themselves as having free reign in charging all the bullshit prices they want.
>>9359130Any common QC issues?
>>9359137The usual Bring Arts stuff, paint sloppiness and the like. I've heard some people say they got missing/duplicate hands.
is it even worth it to try to get the bring arts freya?
Do you think they'll ever release like Keyblade "packs"? So you can use them with any Kingdom Hearts figure.
>>9359719If you like Frey.
do all the tifa faces look this bad?
anyone else buy the whole team?
>>9360180afaik, right is a custom, left is real
>>9360188I cannowt bewieve someone bowught my action figwa! I'm so hownad!
>>9359577How much is the average Bring Arts truly worth?
does kh1 sora have an import figure?
>>9320580I've been wanting a Gilgamesh figure for a decade now
Any chance we ever get Parasite Eve figures? They seem to be revisiting a ton of old stuff, even if it's mostly FF
>>9328249tfw they still haven't made papa nier
>>9360300If we did, it'd probably be some monkeys paw shit like the third birthday. Classic PE never.
>>9360188I would have liked to in order to recreate my team of Duran, Riesz and Kevin, but the price was far too steep and I did not enjoy SD3 nearly enough to warrant buying any of them.
>>9360355For the name "Parasite Eve" yeah, but I'm pretty sure they own all the characters. Aya showed up on a billboard in one of the FF7R trailers. It would probably be something like >>9360353 but I'd kill for an Aya figure in the PE1 artstyle
>>9360188I wanted to....
Does Square own the right to the original Deus EX? Who do I have to pester for a JC Denton figure?
>>9360205If they were right at 5k I'd probably be pretty happy, relative to today's "fair" prices. Unfortunately I'm a massive KHfag so I dished out cash even for Terra, who is just so God damn fucking awful
>>936020510K, I whole heartily support Square Enix and the wonderful things they make.
>>9360188damn those are some attractive ass toys
>>9361474its a damn shame they're so expensive
>>9361671Don't be poor?
>>9320169Can it really hold up all that upper weight without submitting to gravity in that pose?
>>9361676i actually preordered the whole gangidk not a fan of how bring arts is doing pairs for characters thoughlike i doubt most people want the entire ff9 party, and if you do its around a grand
>>9355701Vivi and Stenier were the best 2-packs since Mega Man and Cut Man.
>>9319969What version would you have liked?>>9322458"Please leave me alone, i wont taste like a bucket of popeyes chicken!"
>>9319969no one cares, /v/ tard
>>9361711>What version would you have liked?Like I said, literally any other one would have been preferable, but as far as photorealistic chocobos go, I think FF15 did it best. I particularly love the tiny lantern on the vest. Optional racing medals to pin on would have been a nice bonus, although knowing Square, they would have tacked on 30 bucks for that.
>>9361774Why not make one?
>>9361774I wouldn't be surprised if they make more Chocobos so we might get that eventually, though I think the FFVI Remake Chocobo is more likely.
>>9361775I don't want a chocobo figure that badly. I would have spent the money on the Bring Arts chocobo if it were one that I liked, but I'm happy to save my money and live without it.>>9361803This would be cool. An entire chocobo series would probably sell like hotcakes, especially if they start pairing them with moogles.
>>9361774>tiny lantern on the vestthey need to do this and make it an LED. or at least glow in the dark.
>>9361676>it's always the poor anons that didn't pick them up that say this How do I know? You don't ever post pics
>>9361774you're trippin', I skimmed all chocobo designs from the very first FF and this Chocobo is up there with the very best.Granted, I never played any FF so I don't have any connection or nostalgic value for any of them, and that FFXV Chocobo might look better and it's kinda a shame they didn't do that design instead; but even so after I stumbled upon this thread I immediately searched and ordered one. Good job OP.
Anyone ever pick up the Figuarts Sora? Have a preference on it or the Bring Arts/PaK? I think it's one of the best figures of him ever made but there's stuff like the face just not looking like Sora from anything. And I think the wrists are better in the Bring Arts. Took me forever to get him to do this pose.
>>9369092i preferred the Bring arts since it had jointed pants and flat feet
>>9361311Square owns the rights considering they released an Adam Jensen PAK like a decade ago.
>>9369092Is there a reason that the figuarts KH line never continued?
>>9318751I have to say I'm surprised by how good this looks and the stand is pretty funny to boot. Too expensive for sure but all Squeenix shit is like that.
>>9369187Low sales probably, sora sold out but everyone else shelfwarmed and final form sora was done as a web exclusive. I bought them all to support the line and love that we at least got the main trio.
are there no good KH1 sora figures?
>>9346429Honestly yeah. I fucking hate the stands more than anything else.
>>9369092I've owned both, I prefer the KH2 design but the joints on the SHF just felt so limited because of all the different parts of his outfit being solid plastic and bumping into each other. I sprung for the Bring Arts Second Form as a compromise, as it has the KH3 design/proportions/articulation but the KH2 color scheme and Kingdom Key.
>>9369187It was right before Bring Arts started. I bet Square asked Disney to end the license with Bandai when Bring Arts began.
I really wish they’d do a Bring Arts Lara Croft. It’s the 25th anniversary of Tomb Raider & there’s jackshit.
>>9370009Nothing articulated. The Medicom UDF is very well-made, but it’s a statue and on the small side.
>>9372625i prefer figma or SHF over play arts trash. a retro lara craft would be cool
>>9372998Figma can't do western faces or realistic faces.
>>9372625>Square>Doing non-marvel western shit for the line they hatelmao
>>9372625I'd buy one based off this.
>>9373167i prefer the anime face. realistic faces sometimes looks like shit on women.
A challenger appears!
>>9372841what a shame. with the new smash bros synergy, i feel like a bring arts or SHF of sora classic would be well received
>>9373990But if they were making a Figma Lara Croft, it wouldn't have an anime face since she doesn't have one, they'd go for her actual face and fuck it up
>>9375295VERY likely cause they made Sarah Bryant like that
>>9375295 would buy
>>9374107>giant Dodo'sso what?
>>9346222>>9346225I have weltall but I want ID bad. Almost pre-order it but the website was broken and wouldnt accept my shipping address. It's way too expensive.
