When will the McFarlane Toy Store offer a method of free shipping (either price based or coupon based, etc.) so we can survive the horrors of the exclusives to come?

It's such a great sculpt, but I don't know why the color matching is so bad. It's a real shame.
>>
>>9863379
the upper torso is a different plastic than the lower torso and maybe even the arms. that said, i'm holding mine right now and it's not noticeable at all. a lot probably depends on your particular copy, as the marbled mixed color plastic naturally is different for each one. i'm sure some have to be noticeably different in person, but neither mine nor the other ones i've seen in stores have any issues.

oops forgot my picture. looking at the one up there though and comparing it to mine, i think the inconsistent nature of mass production factory paint washes comes into play as well. either way, there's a handful of us here who have it and we all seem to like it a lot.

Mcfarlane, it came in a Two Pack with a Red Nightwing.

Different anon, I do believe you, but it is hard to tell as a bystander because most people have been posting Clayface in warm lighting, which as has been mentioned above, helps blend the browns together visually. >>9863367 is a little more neutrally lit, and I start seeing the contrast more heavily. The surface texture is a real problem too, not just the color--his upper torso/shoulders are REALLY flat matte, and his limbs and head are shiny as hell.
>>
>>9863478
>>9864001
>>9864706
Wait...is there a variant stealthily going around, like the Necron with the different skin strips? I'm kinda into this. Only thing is, I never see these things in my area in person, so it's all online ordering for me, and it is FAR from palatable playing gacha with a $40 figure. It was pretty hard to swallow even with the $20 figures.
>>
Got a random idea to make a poll of people's preferred versions of a character in DCMV so far. If people like it I'll make more.

First up, what do you think is the best DC Multiverse Red Hood released so far?
http://poll-maker.com/QHG27Z3JN

No monochromatic ver on the list yet since he isn't out yet.
>>
>>9864827

WHAT?
>>
>>9864855
>>9864827
I once had a Nekron with different skin strips. It was rather painful.
>>
>>9864855
>>9864827
Shit, you're right. There is a flayed one variation. I hope it is still out there. Why am I even subscribed to so many youtubefags if none of them is able to warn me about something so important.
>>
>>9864867
i never ever saw it in my area, and it's obviously gambling buying one online since they're randomly packed and chosen. I just bought an overpriced one on eBay, I figured it's worth it for a unique-looking Flayed One, seeing as it's one of McFarlane's strongest molds to begin with.
>>
>>9864867
>Something so important
Lol
>>
>>9864867
I cant even find a single video on youtube with the painted Flayed One variant. Looks like we're back in the 90s of innuendo and rumor as far as variants, boys

Do you even realize how dumb this is? You're starting from an already relatively small pool of people (toy reviewers) then slowly paring them down with your requirements until it's unlikely anyone will be left standing.
>must review American toys
>must review McFarlane toys
>must be into Warhammer, or at least interested enough to buy them blind
>must be lucky enough to either find a rare variant in the wild, get one randomly online, or overpay for one from a scalper
>must find the toy interesting enough to want to review it
You're looking for someone that hits all those requirements and turns out that's nobody in this case.

And that's even assuming they're not idiots and realize they have something interesting, a lot of people didn't get it and thought McFarlane bait-and-switched them from the promo pics and got mad about it.

The same goes for the Tyranid btw. All of the unpainted versions of 40K figures are slightly different from the normal release ones. I’m not sure if the same is true for the DC stuff.
>>
>>9865280
>WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
>>
>>9865045

Todd was right, variants are still possible to make strange and mysterious in 2022
>>
>>9865122
He gave him a heckin 9 inch Manbat to menace his 6 inch figures
>>
>>9865313
it isnt just unpainted though, there are painted variants that are different, too.

you guys need to remember that McFarlane Toys is the company that made it so due to the random pieces of garbage The Heap came with, there were over 7,000 possible combinations of what garbage accessories he came with so almost every package of The Heap was unique
>>
>>9865381
>>9865313
This. The unpainted AP variants are always different, but the Necron is unique in that it has a completely different painted variant--so there are actually three unique Flayed One molds.
>>
>>9865122
This is exactly what I feared. Seeing it just flop over so easily like that, the ankles aren't near strong enough to hold up that massive upper body. Canceling my preorder now, and it's a real fucking shame, I think this is one of the best sculpts I've ever seen.
>>
>>9865528
It really sucks to see, cause the joint range looks phenomenal for such a bulky design. The ab, ankle, neck, and hip range are all stunning for this type of body.
>>
>>9865528
This is why 7 inch scale just has problems. I much prefer McFarlane to Hasbro or Mattel but if there was one thing I could change it'd be the scale which would help a lot with figures standing.
>>

Robo didn't even try to use the stand with it to help it stand which was rather disturbing given thats what its for. He just wants to play the happy jolly Santa while getting in subtle digs at the DC Multiverse line. "OH HO HO THE MORE I MOVE IT THE LESS I LIKE IT BUT YOU KNOW THE MORE I LET IT STAND THERE ON THE SHELF LOOKING MEAN THE MORE I LIKE IT". His happy code for the old tired and now inaccurate meme of "McFarlanes don't articulate."
>>
>>9865612
Only 6 people on Earth want a quality figure of Polkadot man. Even $25 is too much.
>>
>>9865620
Maybe to you, some of us can afford it and think it's worth it. Don't take McFarlane sales as a sign of interest, they're nowhere near import and aren't gonna get the same interest.

I know nothing about him and I haven't even seen the suicide squad, now that you brought it my attention I actually do kind want this guy, just as a conversation piece and to laugh at mostly.

If I buy him though I'll probably have to buy the other 2 figures i don't own in the set just for the king shark, I already own part of him from harley quinn, but buying another fig in that set will only make the temptation to complete him higher. And no I don't want to buy pieces of him off of faggot zoomers from eBay.

Dude, the stand wouldn't have done anything, this isn't a foot surface area issue. Did you even watch the video? The feet remain planted for most of the fall, meaning the ankle joints themselves are what gave way. The stand would not have affected this situation in any way.

America or Batman or Harley Quinn or Joker or Spiderman or Wolverine or magneto. These are not e tier characters

Yes they are because I have 0 interest in them and they are all bland and generic looking. What's good for quality if all your figures are the most boring protags. Wake me up when imports produce something like Clayface, Manbat or Scarecrow. They don't even bother with something more popular like Dano's Riddler or new Scarlet Witch.

Walmart has some kind of AI that dynamically adjusts figure prices based on factors like sales volume, what their pro-scalpers are charging, and msrp is only a starting point for the AI calculation

>>9868358
Walmart is because AI, Target is because it's a fancy store, Best Buy is because it's an electronics store

>>9868361
Target is listed there as 39.99, msrp

>>9868363
And whenever I post the higher prices in store it's because I'm in a fancy store. I've gone through this before here.

With the 2packs they should just get rid of the base and spend the money on better paint on the variant, Hush's coat needed a dark wash

The McFarlane fanbase, not an insult just the people who are buying on the name McFarlane more than DC, like things like those stupid little bases. The same people who would probably prefer they were statues.

I agree, I'd much rather have better looking figures and less reuse.

As someone who is buying on the name McFarlane more than DC, I don't really like the diorama bases. Also I really wouldn't prefer they were statues. I may be an outlier because I collected McFarlane back when they still had action features and were sold in toy aisles--before they went to statues (the Manga Spawn waves were my last vintage waves). Although I can't deny that many of statues look very good.

She should be two inches taller than Cyborg and Nightwing should be only slightly shorter than Raven

Robin and Starfire are both too short and Dick is below manlet.
>>
>>9872407
Raven has heels and you are counting Starfire massive hair
>>
>>9872410
....I'm saying she isn't as tall as she should be. I'm using the line to show she's not taller. Even with the hair she isn't taller than Cyborg, which she's supposed to be. And even with heels Raven is much taller than Nightwing. He's. Too. Small.

Are you being a fucking retard on purpose?

but he's not if everyone else is wildly out of scale. If anything the picture shows Cyborg and Raven are too tall and Nightwing is the right height to Starfire.

I'm 5'8, I'm not short. Above average. This is about the figures not being in proper scale, most notable Nightwing being too small.
>>
>>9873447
Starfire isn't too tall for Nightwing, they both have the correct height for each other.
>>
>>9873453
Then in relation to those two Cyborg and Raven are each a foot too tall.

If we are talking 80's Raven she was in stilettos most of the time which would add about 2 inches. Going off of >>9872381 That would bump her up to 6'1 which is about right when looking at Cyborg and her in >>9872407 as Cyborg is about a inch taller. That said I wager the team that made them just made sure NW was the shortest and eye balled it after that. Not even sure where this debate is going as NW/Robin was sometimes as short 5'4 with Starfire being an amazon nearing 7'. Comics don't really follow their own scales all that great.

It actually doesn't matter how big a company is when it comes to getting discounts for shipping. Only thing that matters is shipping VOLUME.

If a company is making trillions of dollars per year and has 50 million employees, they will never get the same discount for shipping as fucking Target or Bubba's Bait Web Shop, if they only mail out a thousand packages per month (and maybe not even that).
Companies like Hasbro and McFarlane mainly just deal with freight shipping a few dozen crates/pallets/packages per month and let distributors or Walmart/Target/Walgreen's own shipping trucks handle delivery to their distribution warehouses and specific stores.
The webstores for Hasbo, Mattel, McFarlane, etc are miniscule and probably handle fewer purchases than your local comic book or gamestop store. They handle maybe 1/1000th of orders of BBTS or Dorkside.

Even clothing store companies, like zappos, gap, etc aren't getting that great of a discount, despite having a giant online sales. You're paying $10-15 in shipping unless you buy $50-150 in products.
>>

McFarlane sells shit through wholesale, where their toys are picked up through a third party at the docks and MAYBE stored in a local warehouse.
Retailers like Target and Walmart might pick up their own personal cases at the docks, if not at the warehouse. Distributors also do the same thing.
So companies like Mattel, McFarlane and Hasbro never touch, muchless see, 99% of their toys that come into the US.
Nevermind the shipping companies they do use would probably be Jose's Speedy Freight Shipping, which wouldn't count toward getting discounts from UPS, USPS, DHL, etc that ship to your home.

So again, they'll never handle the volume stores like amazon, walmart and target get. They don't even handle the volume of sales entertainment earth or dorkside deals with.
They probably get the same amount of orders a store like theleatherguy.com does.
>>
>>9875749
Man, first someone tells me I'm wrong and it isn't wholesale, now it is wholesale? Can you guys make up your minds? LMAO
>>
>>9875754
It's both. 99% is wholesale. 1% (probably not even that) is through their own store.
They're not allowed to sell wholesale to customers, either by binding contract or just beause they want a good relationship with retailers.

But what does that matter? Point is that toy companies that do sell directly to customers sell less shit than your local gamestop and their shipping is 20% more expensive than popular webstores like zappos and H&M.
>>
>>9875754
Also, are you ten years old?
I just looked up what you meant by wholesale and it seems you think that MSRP = wholesale

You being 10 also explains why you don't understand how businesses and shipping works.

4$ flat rate is you get added on when the supply reaches a certain amount and/or all shipments get ready for pick up. Basically you forego having control over who is shipping it out and it might stay there a few days as they amasses the other orders that need to go out soon.

I'd like some input on how many Batman figures I actually have, /toy/.

McFarlane has made such niche, odd and unusual combinations of Batman figures I can't tell whether some count as a Batman or not when someone asks "How many Batman figures do you have?" Which of these would you say fulfill that:

1. The Drowned
2. Omega
3. Flashpoint Batman (Thomas Wayne)
4. Batman's Hellbat Suit (Gold ver)
5. Batman (Duke Thomas)
6. Bat Armor Azrael (from White Knight)

A couple of these are easier than others but I wanted to include anything even remotely questionable.
>>

She is referred to as Batwoman at times, but she is literally an alternate universe version of Bruce Wayne, so she is often referred to as an alternate universe Batman too.

>>9880320
I don't know who Cyclone is, but Hawkman and Dr. Fate actually look ok by DC movie standards. They're basic, but not ugly and overdesigned at least, and they look properly like superheroes instead of "sheepish looking people in cyber-morphsuits." Not sure why Doc seems to be eyeless though.
>>
>>9880322
This was just a bad idea, lots of retail employees are going to not pay attention to the numbers and just see the figure and stock the big one in the location where the normal one should be and vice versa, and customers will get confused and mad when the checkout shows 40 bucks when they thought it was going to be 20

>>9880410
The deluxe will likely be 40 like all other deluxes.
>>
>>9880410
>>9880598

Hawkman looks like a good plastic value for 20. Robo will like the price to plastic ratio.
