>>9775703First for rogue supremacy
I finally gave up and have started ordering Spartan Collection figures from Amazon and Ebay. Fuck Jazwares and their non-existent distribution.
>>9775847What figures you ordered, champ?
Gave up on double joints and replaced one of my halo 2 chiefs knees with a knees off a cheap luke skywalker, single hinge is way more realistic anyway, I'm so over double joints
>>9775745I just opened mine and I'm actually impressed. He's got actual ab crunch and aside from the wacky knees with some questionable double joints on the arms, he's really solid. Can even get him to hold the brute shot properly.
>>9776183nice, post pics of him in cool poses plz
>>9776115Crop your images to prevent that
>>9776035Bought the anniversary pack for starters. Friend of mine managed to get me a H2 Chief as well. Yoroi, Jun and Jorge are my next focuses afterwards. Looking forward to Carter, H4 Chief and Arbiter.
Anybody have experience with getting more range out of the WoH figures? I've shaved a bunch of plastic from around the elbows, the gains I get are pretty slim. I'd like to get more out of the hips on the mark Vs, but I'm not even sure where to start there.
>>9776115Unironically hope they change to this at this point. I know it might be less range in the long run but it'll surely look a lot better.
>>9776885Yeah double joints are super overrated and frankly totally unrealistic. And more often than not in onions cuck toy "reviewers" they're a point of contention, "these knees look bad they're ugly!!!" Also you physically could not kick your own ass in a suit of armor like mjolnir its designed to prevent hyper extensions like that. Also with single hinged knees it allows for a lateral rotation to align to the ground during a crouch, and you no longer have to rely on the hip to do all the work.Ideally the articulation in the legs should be working in unison from hip all the way down to toe, good forward motion, good thigh swivel, 90 degree + 10 At the knee, enough of an ankle pivot to flatten the foot to the ground at most angles the recipe for good leg articulation, and I hate to bow at the alter of Todd, but the recipe for good leg articulation on mjolnir has already been done by the halo 3 line. Those are my gold standard for posing halo shit, below the waist and I frequently consult my master chief as a reference. So jazzwares honestly needs to get the fuck with it
>>9777133What were you updating on your Xbox in the background?
>>9775745I'm thankful to the fileshare for help it grow on me, but I haven't completely lost sight of its oddities. I ought to look into making some of these shots for real, or approximations.
>>9777624Forza horizon 5Also if any of you dudes are itchy for a halo 4 style chief in close enough to 1:18 the smaller spri-kits chiefs fits to bill well enough
Any tips on shaving/ cutting the back legs of the Jazwares CE chief ? I really want to give it more leg movement.
>>9778460You dontbhave to replace the actual joint but this would be the gist of it, cut into the lower leg, and round a cutout into the upper leg and it should be good
>>9778500What tools did you use? Did you warm up the plastic to make it easier ?
How it looks with some blackwash and silver weathering. Berry nice.
>>9775703Any pics of this Jorge next to Chief? I was wondering if he was taller.
>>9779471>>9779474>>9779479>>9779482For such a premium figure I'd expect them to ship with those paint jobs desu
Targets around me got a new case with the Samurai armor from a couple of months ago. Not sure why they're getting more of it now. WM made sense since it never showed up there until the other week.
>>9779580Not thier fault that 343 delayed the game so many times and made last minute changes to Chief.
>>9778430what did you use for the panel lining on the 3 chief? looking to spruce up my own a bit since that looks really nice.also, what's a good paint to use for touching up small details on figures? need matte black and white, preferably nothing too pricey since I don't need a whole lot
>>9780426I just used a black gundam panel marker for the lines, and to fill in the missing black details I used to use model master flat black but they discontinued model master, so I've been using tamiya flat black, usually uts pretty cheap and it goes on pretty well with a brush
Jazzwares just do deep cut single joints fucking shit this is soooo much better than anything any of the figures have had thus far
>>9783532Fuckin always loved this pic plz make more anon
>>9775703Target CE Chief in stock
Fuck, it’s already hard to find some of these in the wild but you also gotta worry about QC issues.Finally found Fred but he has an unbendable/ non functional elbow joint.
Chief while you were asleep in cryo I made some changes to your armor, so try to get used to them
>>9783762Send pics to jazawares and they'll mail you a free replacement.
>>9783762You tell me, finally found an Escharum in the wild and it has two fucking left arms, at least it has a right hand
I'll say it. I miss MacFarlane.
>>9784464>]Really? I remember them being awesome when I was a kid and bought a small used collection from a garage sale recently. And boy, some are real dog shit. They look nice but have such shit articulation. Especially some of the Reach stuff.
>>9783246This is canon according to the live action show.
>>9784561>Especially some of the Reach stuffI will never understand not giving the reach Marines bicep swivel or elbow swivel if you weren't gonna give them bicep swivel. It made it so you couldn't actually put them in shooting poses and iirc they reused the mold to make the reach odst's since they did share a good amount of the armor in the game.
jega bring me the hobbits ohohohoho I wish to grizzled them
>>9775703So I havent been following the like since wave 1 outside of what's in the new waves, has the QC improved since then? I'm thinking of getting noble team now that it's complete.
>>9785037Yes but some bad decisions were also made, they redesigned the knees so they look kinda weird now along with them using a rubbery material for them so they have a lot of flex to the sides and they got rid of the butterfly joints for some reason. Otherwise the QC is nowhere near as bad as it was wave 1.
>>9778500Is that a 3d printed knee piece?
>>9785089That specifically is a resin copy of a modded one i made, but I didn't have a 3d printer then, so now I'm using 3D printed versions, this was just testing tho I print them in black normally
>>9779584Probably a lot of stock that's been held up due to shipping crisis shit.
