>tranimu facesyuck, give me that old school cartoon style any day
>>9957961thisi suppose anything is better than nothing
>>9957961>>9957978Hate to tell you faggots this, but Metal Slug is a Japanese franchise, and western cartoons are tranny shit these days.
>>9957990>western cartoonsYou are aware SNK is a Japanese company, Metal Slug is a Japanese game, and yet these figures don't match the aesthetics of said Japanese game from said Japanese company, right? The guys are being made to look like they do in this Japanese game, so does it not seem to make sense that the girls also look like they do in this Japanese game?No idea where in the fuck you're getting 'western cartoons' from.
>>9958014And you do realize these toys are being made by Asians, right?
>>9957961Amazing, considering their original art looked like actual men.
>>9958031amazing, trolls can't stop shitting on these stellar figgers
>>9958014>>9958008>>9957990>>9957978>>9957961Before this goes on for 20 more posts of arguing and politics, I think the first post meant that the faces don't look like they did in the original Metal Slug 3 release. Pic related is what they looked like in the original Metal Slug 3 game. Later in the late 2000's they updated graphics and ported it to consoles like Xbox 360, updating the soldier artworks in the process. The figure they are releasing is based on the updated looks.There, hope this cools things down at least a little.
>>9958059just heckin 3d print your own head then
>>9958063That would be cool, hope someone does.Personally I think the figure looks great regardless of it being based on the original or updated looks. I'd like to see someone customize so it matches the original look too. It would be better to have included that as an option, but considering the accessories already included it isn't a big deal. I'm pre-ordering Fio regardless. I might get Marco too, not sure.
>>9958014So get the fuck off 4chan you lazy sack of shit and get the fuck back to making my toys
>>9958059Getting bts info about japanese toy companies is almost impossible but I would be willing to bet than even though they're marketed as Metal Slug 3, SNK higher ups probably wanted the updated looks for [insert dumb business reason here]. I only say that because most of the time the artist/sculptor has no real say what designs should be used for final product.
>>9957947>I can't enjoy these since they don't look like horse faced menI wasn't aware we had so many homosexuals here
>>9958087Yeah, licensing stuff with toys is weird. That's why sometimes companies pick movie sequel licenses, like Child's Play 3 or Hellraiser 2, to get around producing figures of the characters or something like that. Not sure why they picked the 3rd game, but probably like you said something like that happened.For reference, this is what they look like in the updated Soldier Select for Metal Slug 3. It is weird they kept the guy's faces pretty similar to >>9958059 but changed the girl's faces.
>>9958100I don't want to fuck most things I collect anon. They are great looking figures and all but they don't look like the sprites, aren't as uggu kawai as the old ad/cover designs are and don't even match the style of the guys. They just don't look like anything Metal Slug and that is a disappointment.I am going to buy these but I just want them to be more cartoony.
>>9958149>they don't look like the sprites
>>9958149>I cannot appreciate pretty things with out wanting to fuck them
>>9958059They could've gone with a look reminiscent of Shinkiro's art for 3 and it'd still be cute without going over the top.They have my money anyway of course because I never thought there'd be a day when Metal Slug figures would exist but it would be nice if Fio didn't have a post-surgery kpop idol face.
>>9957947I'm not buying them, unless they make a WOAH BIG! version.
>>they don't look like the sprites
>>>they don't look like the sprites
>>9957947They look great
>>9958192>posts you can hear
ugh those faces dont look anything like MetalSlug3 they look like the ones from that gay MetalSlug Code-J
>>>>they don't look like the sprites
>>9958309>>9958225>>9958203>>9958155shut the fuck up already, damn
>>9958327make your own action figure if you're such a super fan
They look great. What you think they should look like doesn't take away from the fact they do look cool
>>9958381they're tranimu bullshit for degenerate coomers
>>9958387I still want more. I want the hentai testicle aliens hehe
They sure look different from the game...https://protocultures.tumblr.com/post/140489203963/metal-slug-3s-artbook-again-i-have-some-stuff
>>9957961This is the most retarded post on /toy/.
>>9958506I agree with this is the case now (toybiz was peak kino) but it has nothing to do with this. We aren't discussing gooks vs cucks
>>9958513>muh toybizso glad they went bankrupt from making nohing but gay ass capeshit, imaging being a toy company and making nothing but the most homosexual of things
>>9958506Didn't ask, shit-for-brains.
>>9958518make your own if you're so much better>>9958522jealous much? kek
I'm real glad fwoosh didnt get the license for this for their bankrupt articulated icons series, kek
>>9958151>>9958211>>9958332Why the fuck are you still on 4chan lazy Oriental? Breaks over get back to making my toys for 13 cents an hour. Momma San needs her rice
>>9958059>/toy/>ever stopping a retarded conversation from bringing a thread to bump limitPlease anon, there are still 1000 more buzzwords to go!
>>9958683yea the op toys SUCK because its not like the original designs like a wholesome contra boxart
>>9958059Isn't that supposed to be propaganda portraying them as ugly fuckers? This is what they're actually supposed to look like imo.
>>9958059> complains about the faceIf I am picky enough I would pick on the figure's height differences insteadMarco: 180cmTarma: 174cmFio: 158cmEri: 168cm
I don't really hate them, but they have that Asian beauty 1/6 scale figure look that has that uncanny valley look. Metal Slug art is so inconsistent that I can't really complain.
>>9959090I think the issue from some people is that they started the precedence with the male figures looking a certain way, then the girls looking a completely different way. Maybe it's an excuse to sell different versions of both with different heads, who knows.
>>9957947I wonder if the Leona figure will also have this K-Pop kinda face, not really a big fan but...>Muh DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK
>>9959308They're doing Leona?
The problem is that they don't actually match closely to any depiction, ever. They don't even look that much like >>9958087 or >>9958104They look like they're making guest appearances in a korean mmo.
>>9959599well yeah, their shorts has always had windows in them to she them off
>>9959617Marco and Tarma too doesn't really resemble their game counter parts either.TS is just using the same face with different hair for both sets and call them different characters.
I need Sophia too.
>>9959659Those faces are clearly different
>>9958225post the sprite animation where you can see their bwebs when they die in game
>>9959090Never played these games but the 'inconsistent' art style is pretty interesting to observe.>>9960100Me too, I don't know which girl to get (getting both feels redundant so I only want one). Something about Fio's face is slightly uncanny though but I don't like the yellow clothes Eri has.
>>9957947when are the boys releasing for fuck sake
>>9959708I mean, I also want Rumi but only if her backpack is big enough to accommodate a human figure and or a marsman.
>>9957947tumbler faces right down to the red noses. Gross
>>9960376might as well release her sister Madoka.Same template with hair color changed and extra bazookas.
>>9960605Definitely need a POW/Hyakutaro figure. Give him huge boxers, maybe some items to drop, a rope + stake to tie him to, and a beam effect.
>>9960040You can see their ass if they die midair
>>9958059Weird that they kept Marco and Tarma but changed the women. I mean, I know why.Always loved that Fio portrait though, looked like she could hang with the best of em
>>9958670>ugh, just let me bitch into the void, and agree with anything I say, is that so hard!?
>>9957947Anyone know how tall they are and if they’re going to sell the body separately?
>>9960408Are you fucking retarded?
>>99645035.5 inches/14cm, and no they're not selling the body separately
>>9966511are you still malding? make your own
>>9958008I believe Saudi Arabia had a large portion of snk stock now. So snk isn't a Japanese company like it once was.
>>9958717Yeah it's like the WANTED posters from old western movies. My 2 cent take is that the metal slug women were never meant to be coom bait, instead people grew attracted to them and have kinda warped the idea of them in the process.
>>9966762The naked death animations disagree with you.
>>9957961Just because you failed to look like a woman it does not mean actual women have to be as ugly as you are
Wonder if Trevor and Nadia are in the works too.Definitely want to see baddies like Allen as well.
>>9967023Red Eye would be great to the addition.
>>9966762They were always clearly meant to be cute girls. Their outfits are designed to be sexy, with the midriff and the shorts. Majority of artwork of them has them looking cute or pretty vs that one character select screen with the cartoonishly exaggerated features.Simply put, because they're female characters, SNK wants them to look cute. Male characters can look cool or funner though a lot of artwork has them looking like pretty handsome dudes too.
>>9966962For what it's worth those weren't in 2 or X, but yeah you're right, I doubt anything changed regarding their sex appeal in the two years between 2 and 3
>>9967023Considering they're jumping straight to Ralf, Clark, and Leona in their Metal Slug XX appearance, I'm willing to bet they're skipping them for now but could potentially make them if the others sell well enough. All you'd really need for them are new head sculpts though, so who knows. Allen would be awesome, I'd feel a lot more justified in spending money on him than the soldier two pack.>>9967355Same here as with Trevor and Nadia, Red Eye and Gimlet would be easy reworks of Fio and Tarma but I guess we'll just have to wait and see
So I seem to recall Metal Slug Attack was just a slightly crummy mobile game, but fuck if they did a Li Lin I'd buy her. China dress + thighs = MUH
>>9967938I don't really mind coombait but god none of the Metal Slug Attack characters look like they even remotely belong in the series
>>9968125Agreed, I'm just a sucker for anime Chinese girls. But absolutely, they don't really fit the look at all.
What'd be the best place to order these girls in the UK? Doesn't have to be domestic (though it'd help), just has to have reasonable shipping and be trustworthy.
>>9968130Honestly that's fair. She kinda looks like Hsein-Ko from Darkstalkers, which would be a cool character to get a figure of
>>9968148I’m in The Netherlands and I ordered mine from Giantoys which I can recommend.
>>9968233Thanks anon, I'll look into them.
>>9968009That's your reflection on the screen.
Allen would be the cheapest figure in the series to produce, come to think of it. -His body is just a plain male version they've already made for the other characters. -Only needs cloth pants and boots - rebel soldier patterns and molds are made. -New headsculpt-Gun is a complex and large accessory but he doesn't need anything else like the other characters. MAYBE a stick bomb or two but like... already sculpted and produced with the rebel soldiers. Unless he had other (spoilery) extras, he's the lightest on accessories and new sculpts compared to the entire franchise. -Spoiler terminator head and robot upper torso if you wanted to go all out but I doubt it.
>>9968175>She kinda looks like Hsein-Ko from Darkstalkers, which would be a cool character to get a figure ofStorm Collectibles is working on Morrigan so sooner or later she's possible. The one catch is their toys are 1/10 scale so storm's lei lei will absolutely tower over figmas and the like.
>>9968762sounds like you degenerate coomers need to fuck off already
>>9957961Go back, 2020 tourist.
>>9969902They could maybe get away with using the same parts below the waist but it'd defeat the whole fucking point of the character if his upper body wasn't noticeably bigger than the rest of them.
Everyone loves the dudes though, right?
>>9970680They are just fine. I didn't order them though.
>>9970680Well DUH who dosen't?
>>9970680gonna pre-order Marco and Fio, they're iconic
>Guys get revealed>4chan thread is almost entirely negative, complaining that people only care about the girls>Girls get revealed>4chan thread is almost entirely negative, guys are being praised insteadWhat the fuck is wrong with the people on this site
>>9970680I have them preordered.
>>9970680I like them and the girls, I just wish the former would release already.
>>9970898They made the guys correct and gave the girls gross faces. It is not that hard to understand if you read the complaints.
I just wish they all looked handsome or ugly. The guys and girls don't look like they belong together. Idc about how accurate it is to the game
>>9971562kill yourself equality queer
>>9967453americans are too retarded and gay to understand that
>>9966762>the metal slug women were never meant to be coom baitanon there are detailed animations of their clothes melting off and their huge ass/tits showing
>>9970898I mean, 4chan is contrarian by nature, but basically>expect normal toys upon hearing announcement >really nice bodies, realistic cloth clothing... and super caricature cartoon faces for the men, not expecting that>mad>girls announced, expecting meme caricature faces now that we're used to the men having them>really nice bodies, realistic cloth clothing... and normal "pretty faces", not expecting that>madEffectively, the men and women's heads, out of context, look like they're from different toylines.
>>9957947Those figures reminds me of thunderbirds or team america puppets in some of the promo shots.
