Is this going to be the same size of the original or will it be bigger?
So I finally got my Virginie and my PGV girl trio is finally complete. Next I have to start working on their ride, a SW:VC Assault Tank, so they can all fit in the cab comfortably with the lid closed. The "Assault Tank" (it's an armored pick up truck) is a great piece and I love the amount of detail that went into it. But at the same time I *hate* all the weird cut corners and design choices they made. Like how the main hatch is a removable piece when there's clearly a perfectly placed hinge seam molded into it so it could've had an actual opening canopy. Or how the driver seat is permanently raised so the driver always has his head poking out. Or how the captain's seat is actually it's own separate piece...but it's molded in the folded up position so the captain can't actually sit in it. Though it's not like they left any space for the captain to sit down to begin with. That said, off the top of my head, this is the only armored transport type vehicle I can think of that has a proper pilot/co-pilot/captain style set up. Anyone else know of anything even remotely similar, with a fully usable cockpit that fits a crew of three or more? >>9435225I'm thinking it'll be the same size, if not only slightly bigger, then the original. But I also feel that this thing is Hasbro just testing the waters, no pun intended, for a possible Flagg re-release. Basically just an upgrade to the originals bunch-o-panels with a big central tower type deal. The size alone would be enough for it to garner lots of attention as a future Haslab, even if it only contains minimal upgrades.
>>9436439I don't think the Flagg is at all financially viable. It would be substantially more than anything else from HasLab.
>>9436444i honestly don't want Hasbro to do giant vehicles, because they're just way too fucking big. Takes up a ton of space and i'd rather have more accurately scaled medium stuff.pic is what I'd love to see instead.But I'm hypocritical and would love a terror drome, despite not having any space for it. I'll fucking make space.
>>9436444Well the Sail Barge was $500 for a 4" toy, but it had a lot of depth and levels and even soft goods. A Flagg would certainly be the most expensive Haslab ever made, but it could mostly be just flat panels, support struts and that one single tower...along side all it's other little bells and whistles. Basically, the two could end up using the same amount of plastic overall, just spread out differently, which is how the original worked. >>9436454For general releases, I agree with this completely. But a Haslab should be obnoxiously large, "biggest ever" type stuff. The Skystriker is such an oddity in terms of Haslabs because it is just another jet. It's the oddly small Haslab in a sea of literal giants.
>>9436467>For general releases, I agree with this completely. But a Haslab should be obnoxiously largehere's the problem: retailers really don't want giant sized anything anymore. This is why there's barely any large and medium shit like there used to be in the 80s, 90s, and 00s. Only lines like Star Wars BARELY get them now.So Haslab should try smaller stuff, especially with 1:12 shit. Not that i care for 1:12 shit.
>>9436473>So Haslab should try smaller stuff....you seem to not understand the concept behind Haslab. The whole point of it is to do those giant pieces retailers don't want, but a specific amount of fans DO want. These things don't see shelves, they're one time runs, direct to market items for people willing to foot the bill up front.
>>9431994>>Vitruvian H.A.C.K.S Series General Bah-sak Red Knight BBTS Shared ExclusiveStill no accessory pics?
>>9436980I think an updated Terror Drome, a Joe headquarters/PIT, and mobile headquarters would be perfect Haslab products. I'd back those up immediately.
>>9436980Pretty sure the whole point was to do stuff that retailers wouldn't take, not just giant stuff. Stuff that Hasbro had plans for and fans want.The only theme that Hasbro really has with these Pulse kickstarters is just lack of retail support products, they never said "only giant stuff"

Anyone else grab the skeleton hoard pack from bossfight studio? What color skeleton's did you get? Mine is arriving tomorrow.
>>9438223>skeleton hoard pack from bossfight studioSay what now? First I've heard of this.
So, Roboskull Kickstarter finally ended, they hit every stretch goal and even added some weird collector cards. Probably ended up being the most successful vehicular toy Kickstarter to date, or at least in the 1:18 scale.
>>9445736I think it definitely helped that it works for multiple scales, plus the extremely 'out there' design that certainly attracted more than just people who'd want a 1/18 helicopter or something. On top of the fact that it looks pretty incredible and has a lot of free upgrades to the base vehicle. Plus the fact that there's vintage O-ring style, modern 1/18, and Marauders's first 1/12 figures. Especially for people who got in on the early All-Ins (or sniped them as some cancelled), there's a lot of value in (I would even say all facets of) the package.
>>9445745 I'm looking forward to the extended backer kit for the Vietnam stuff more than this actually. I suspect the extension gave them some add-ons that they were originally going to have to unlock and I'm hoping for Space Dudes or Divers.
>>9445775I'll admit I'm only vaguely familiar with the Vietnam stuff. I've been disconnected from 1/18 for some time, and also 1/12 desu. I just went in on the Roboskull because of how unique it is, and fits a lot of the aesthetics I enjoy. It's also a a fun tribute that one of the pilot's will have the likeness of the original Roboskull's creator. I wasn't originally going to, but in the backer kit I may actually get a second 6" figure so I can have him as the pilot, and another one as a trooper with the claws. I'll give it some thought.
>>9445745I'm hoping they come out with some more off the wall stuff like this. I have tons of armored 4x4s already, I need crazy skull mechs or sick dragon faced tanks or some other pure metal machine that can fit a full crew of figures. >>9445775I almost forgot about that...and I'm glad it was extended. My bank account has been hit hard these past few weeks, and MTF being smart enough to not let their backerkit overlap with the Skullitron was a fantastic move and just another reason they're one of my favorite toy companies around.
>>9445794>MTF being smart enough to not let their backerkit overlap with the SkullitronPlus the fact that there was collaboration with them on the Roboskull project, I doubt they'd want their to be any overlapping of funds. Hopefully all these figures turn out well, including their much anticipated 6" line that feels like it has been in the works in some form for a long time now.
Are 1/18 coomers allowed?
Anyone know how to get the Halo line in the UK without being charged three or four times the retail price? We only got half of the first wave here and that was it.
>>9445775>>9445790So they didn't collect the backerkit money yet? Yeah! I nabbed like a hundred bucks worth of extras. I'd like them to hurry and take that money so it isn't a surprise.
Planet Green Valley now has a range of accessory packs, they're breddy nice.
Just picked up some Shodo. Bought these long ago but they were kept at a friend's place for quite some time due to Covid restrictions and life in general, preventing me from picking 'em up before now.
>>9446491>Planet Green Valley now has a range of accessory packsOh snap, that's awesome. Those look like new torsos as well. Where do you find these?
>>9447294Got them direct from Weihua Wei. The torsos are just dark versions of the "Lin" schoolgirl shirt but look pretty nice.
Not sure if anyone is interested or even remembers this project. But the M.A.R.V. 4x4 is actually up for sale. It was a failed KS that sat around for a while, but the guy running apparently just went ahead and made the thing anyway. It looks pretty nice, has a very beefy vibe going, and comes in a few different color choices. If I didn't just drop so much on the Skullitron thing, I'd probably grab one of them, but as of this moment the toy budget is drained. Hopefully they stick around until after the holidays, as I can always find a use for a good, basic, heavily armed 4x4.
>>9452664What are your questions, Anons.
What's happening with those fucking Mission 375 dioramas? Scam? Do we have any comeback with Kickstarter?
>>9452664>M.A.R.V. 4x4how about a link? google brings up a shit load of used military equipment for sale.
>>9452731How durable is it, and to the front wheels turn at all?
>>9452731Can you show gollum using the turret gun?
>>9452983The plastic on the “wagon cover” or whatever fits over the bed is a little thin but the rest of it is decently sturdy. It feels like classic plastic toy truck. It’s not as hard a plastic as like GI Joe vehicles but still feels as sturdy; much more than the Joy Toy one. This thing with the paint details from the Joy Toy truck would be perfect. It’s smaller but you can fit more guys in this one. >>9452983The wheels don’t turn, there’s a metal rod that you slide between holes and then you screw the wheels on the end and that’s your axle>>9452985What makes the grass grow, Precious? Yes, my loves — bloodses!
>>9452731No real questions, just wanted to say it looks amazing.>>9452865crap, I knew I forgot something lolhttps://www.waywardgoat.com/
>>9453076didn't even know it came in different colors.For $80 shipped, this is actually pretty cheap.
>>9453086I know, it's a great deal for a sturdy vehicle, and the options are fantastic. I only plan on getting one, but choosing which color is going to be a thing. I might just settle on the black one because that can be used for almost anything,
>>9453086You could buy all four variants of the World Peacekeepers Humvee for that.
>>9453408i already own two of Hasbro's hummers and at least one of the PTE humvees. My other one may or may not be an Elite Force hvm, since they were also pretty light.So i really don't need another hmv. PTE's are cheapshit, btw. Really brittle hollow cheapshit. Elite Force's are more solidly built, but have brittle plastic as well. I forget what the underside of the one that think might be EF's looks like, since they have a real underside and PTE's are just has the negative showing.I want a MRAV because i don't have MRAV. Someone mentioned the JoyToy one, which i thought about buying, but looks too much like a monster truck vs the Wayward Goat's that looks the real deal.I have a boatload of vehicles, with these being the ones that would fit in a simple comparison for my Russian radar truck. I have another Abrams, another Bradley, another Warthog, an LAV, another of the green trucks, a bunch of the same model HISSes, another acid rain mecha, construction vehicles, even more scale cars, and boxes full of GI Joe vehicles. Plus whatever I'm forgetting, like an EF Little Bird... star wars vehicles.... etc.Variety is spice.oh, and i just remembered i DO have a MRAV looking thing, the Mattel Jurassic Park vehicle, but it's a gimmick toy that pops open so nothing can sit inside it. The back is open, so at least shit can lay in there and can work as a dio-piece.
>>9436439The only two that come to mind for me are the Aliens Armored Personnel Carrier & the Star Wars VC Mandalorian Troop Transport. The former is truly incredible, easily the best and most detailed and spacious vehicle I have in this scale (not saying much as I have very few) but is also by far more expensive than many alternatives. The Mando troop transport is nice and I actually like it just a little more than the tank because it fits more people comfortably in general and the two pilot chairs up front are pretty much the same. It’s spacious enough to fit most of my Acid Rain guys as long as they’re not wearing backpacks or bulky belts.
>>9453086anyone get the green one?
>>9431994This set feels so comfy. Any other pics?
>>9459859This guy’s profile
Take the tunic and webgear from the original OriToy Marine, slap it onto the body of the Toys Alliance Marine Maelstrom Trooper and you end up with a Toys Alliance style Marine infantryman
Ashley Wood has entered the chat
>>9462841I take it his first robot was a big seller?
>>9462841This guy looks sick. Is this from the same people who made those neat toilet bots?
>>9462841Love the design articulation seems like shit though
>>9462841Acid Rain is more Ashley Wood like in 1:18 than Ashley Wood is
guys im fkn dyin how do i store all my 1:18 figs when i have so many and dont wanna put them back in their individual boxes
>>9465869Something like this.
>>9465273That head looks so small and it doesn't look right. Fuck, I was really looking forward to this figure. I'll still buy one and customize it.
>>9465275>Judge Deathhot damn.I'm glad i didn't buy the Toy Biz or 3A one for after market prices now and almost makes me regret buying Judge Fear.I hope they release the rest of the Dark Judges.
>>9466240needs to be on a bulky acid rain body
>>9465883Thank but I don’t suppose they’ve got this in a traveling suitcase form?
>>9453895>The former is truly incrediblecan confirm.
>>9465869I use those big plastic storage boxes that slide under the bed.
>>9465869I just keep them on my desk. Problem is that you have to take a toothbrush and water to them every so often and wipe the desk down because of dust. I’ve also got some Detolf shelves with a row of Acid Rain World stuff. You still have to dust but far less often. If you’re wondering where to store parts and accessories you can look into bead cases from the hobby shop.
Joy Toy dog is disappointingly tiny, especially compared to the Marauders K9
>>9469817Neither are award winning purebreds, so they're both equally disappointing.
>>9469834That’s because AKC “standards” are bullshit made-up fads. Real German shepherds are larger dogs with straight backs that were meant for farm work.
>>9469834Fucking Rintintin ruining the German Shepherd...
I know this is a 1:18 general but i don't know where-else to ask. Is ~$140 a good price for a 1:12 Ferrari 330 P4 by CMR?

Thoughts on Click and Play?
>>9473567check bottom right of image.It's World Peacekeepers and they're chintzy toys. Cheap bendy plastic that won't return to its original shape when bent and instead'll break
>>9473572oh, forgot to say you should only buy their stuff for the accessories. Their vehicles are good too. Cheap, but good.The figures are outdated as fuck.
>>9473567Figures were decent around 2004 (the GI JOE Nu-Sculpt of JvC, Spy Troops and Valor vs Venom). Vehicles are great, buildings, scenery and furniture are terrific. Weapons are generally gummy.
kek, love this - Jamal Lincoln, Lord of the Wilderness.
>>9473567>>9473588I really like WP stuff for the price.
>>9474539The lights are a nice addition. My turret ring and mount fucked themselves also so I spend my time peering out the top as well.
>>9474498 I bought that for the horse and rifle.

anyone know where to buy gatchapon stuff in roughly 1/18 scale for non-rape prices?
>>9475896>gatchapon>non-rape pricesDoes not compute
Just saw Eagle Force posted two new figsThis one definitely looks like a champion
>>9470298Yes, 140$ is very good price for 1:12 scale. I bought my mercedes models in 1:18 for 120-140$
>>9481787>)These are 1:18? nice.
>>9481793Yes, it is
>>9473567Good vehicles, great buildings, fantastic accessories, crap figures and useless weapons. Definitely worth the price, which is usually pretty cheap.>>9473588While the figures are woefully outdated and of the most awful quality, they're at least really good for being used as fodder soldiers for Cobra or other badguy factions to pick on. >>9474539I love how in almost every pic you see of PGV girls, it's mostly chicks in their undies wieldin guns and havin funs.
>>9481958>mostly chicks in their undiesBecause the blanks were the easiest thing to get as opposed to Virgie who is nigh impossible to get. People have been customizing things for them to wear.
>>9482906Oh believe me, I'm right there as well. The standard skirt looks nice but it just kills all leg articulation. I been trying to whip up a more flexible option since I got her since I intend for her to ride inside an already cramped tank cockpit with two other PGV girls.And I'm not complaining mind you, I too have one of the blank PGV girls and she's a fantastic figure with her full compliment of swapable undergarments.
So these are for sale on ebay.
PVGThere’s been males, robots, and astronauts promised and we have a hard enough time getting the first wave but there’s a back pack set out there
>>9482906sorry for being a noob but what's this figure, who made it and where can I find it?
>>9486205seconding I want a pgv painted nude figure. I've seen the blanks, but never figured if I could head swap a painted head.The boss fight bodies are okay, but the heads are shit and it's so hit or miss to mix and match with a hasbro head.
>>9486249You can swap heads onto a PGV body from pretty much any 1/18 figure.
or paint your own
>>9486205The base figure is from a line called Planet Green Valley, which got hit hard with years long production issues, burning out it's creator and causing the line to release with a trickle and mostly be sold directly from the guy making them. However it's been...lets say modified...with an "enhanced" chest piece and what looks like custom boots and "shorts". Not sure where all that stuff is from, but I'm sure ebay is involved. The figures themselves are pretty great, the official releases come with lots of stuff while the direct releases are usually more trimmed down. But they're not particularly easy to get a hold of for various reasons.
>>9486446I've got like 30 of them kek
>>9486501I only have four myself, all from the original pre-order run. I'm just glad they're out there for others to get, but having to DM a guy on Facebook or however you actually get these things isn't really something I feel like doing lol.
>>9486249get someone on Etsy or Fiverr to paint the blank heads for you. also the new ones come with printed faces so you just need to paint the hair.
>>9486506Why not? Weihua is a cool lad and totally reliable.
>>9486509Don't get me wrong, while never having dealt directly with him myself, I've only ever heard the best things about the guy. The fact that he ended up having to distribute all of these figures directly himself just shows how reliable he is and how much he wants others to enjoy these figures he put so much effort into. Not many people would put that much effort into making sure people got what they paid for, especially after all the headaches he went through himself with the production issues. Personally, I originally only wanted a trio of the girls, which I got. My fourth was just an impulse buy because the blank figure looked so nice and came with tons of stuff. Even if they were readily available in stores, I'd probably hesitate to buy more. But having to do emails and middlemen and all that, I'm fine with what I have so I'll leave that to those who really want these fantastic figures.
>>9486501>I've got like 30 of themDo you have the Mind Controller? Have you had any QC issues overall? TELL ME NOW!!!
>>9486659lad, I have three Mind Controllers, two of them still on card. I have never had a single production issue with any PGV figure, they are really well-made. There was a bad batch which Weihua had destroyed rather than sell them.
>>9486652paying for them is a pain, yeah. I have to go through an intermediary who I don't even know, I feel uncomfortable bothering him, he's a well-known toy youtuber who knows Weihua.
>>9486904This here Virgie >>9485973 had a left arm that just snapped right out the package. Notice her missing the wrist part of the glove? I put her hand on an extra blank arm I so I was wondering whether that was an isolated incident.
>>9487841Hm, never had any issues. Did you warm it up in hot water before giving it a good workout?
AcidRain + TaskForce
>>9489018Totally worth combining 3 diff AR figs each
>>9489126Ok last one of these guys, back when I only had one, before i chopped up the rifle for the holosight, suppressor and sling
>>9467498w-what are they watching?
I’ve been dying to get some proper base or diorama to keep my army and I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts or experience with those Scene in Box sets, like this large watchtower for example. My honest main issue is that I’m running out of places to put them but theoretically once I move stuff aside and get the tower up and running that I can use it to store much of my 1:18 stuff.
>>9490740I heard these particular ones skew much closer to 1:24 than 1:18. The product page lists it as compatible with both for some reason despite the fact that it totally wouldn't work that way.There's the Joy Toy mech depot stuff, but to get a big base going it's gonna cost ya. And there's no bunk room option which is the deal breaker for me.
>>9490747That’s unfortunate but thanks for the heads up. I was also eyeing the joy toy ones but like you said it seems they only wanna sell it to you all chopped up. Maybe I’ll cave and grab some of the comfier pieces like the lounge but I guess I’ll stick to my cardboard and dollhouse for now lol
>>9490779Care to share a pic of the lounge? I'm thinking of grabbing the observation tower and then scouring the internet for like cots and makeshift looking computer consoles to make a sorta "end of the world refuge" type joint.
>>9490797I may have been generous when I called it a lounge but here’s two for you, the “Meeting area” and the “Medical area.” They seem kinda small but they do look at least detailed and somewhat comfy. Sorry for the late reply, work got busy.
>>9490747>>9490779>>9490797Maybe not the most advanced or comfortable looking beds in the world, but the World Peacekeepers bunk sets are fantastic and fairly cheap if you're just looking for a place for your troops to hunker down. And if you don't like the idea of bunkbeds, well it's a problem a good pair of snippers could easily fix!Honestly, World Peacekeepers make the best basic buildings and dio stuff. The Joytoy and the Complex stuff are great and all for the more detailed stuff, but they get way too expensive. Also, look into the Fortnite sets, their panel based building system can make some really nice looking backdrops and facades with just a bit of work and creativity.
