I'm surprised takara hasn't even done the red guy themselves, unless they want to only bring in only new sculpts.

Which is odd considering we got soundwave and blaster, and soundwave has more tape minions than blaster on the takara side, let alone hasbro's statement to complete teams

Thing is that for what you want to do the real answer is "scratch build it yourself" which depending of your ability and experience it can be easy or a nightmare.

I don't know any 1/57(32mm) scale model company and anything I could say you could google it yourself. Your next best bet is 1/48 but it will look quite weird and the selection is really poor:
https://www.scalemates.com/search.php?q=*&fkSECTION[]=Kits&fkGROUPS[]=%22Trains%22&fkSCALE[]=%221:48%22

Those kits are all resin, dunno how familiar you're with the material outside of minis and hard to find nowadays probably.

That's where "our official expertise" ends unless you want to go the scratch building route, but not all is lost as the scale railroads (the electric small trains stuff) has a close enough perhaps scale, the "O" scale which is 1/46 or 44 I don't remember exactly, that you could use as the rails and selection of trains will be wide I suppose (don't know how expensive tho).
O scale will look big but maybe you could play it off as in universe huge ass trains or whatever so you should search a local train shop and look around.

I won't recommend 1/35 as it will look really ridiculous unless you convert it quite a bit
>>
>>6389978
>O scale will look big but maybe you could play it off as in universe huge ass trains or whatever
That's probably the plan then.

Last resort I'll break out the bog roll and plasticard.

Depending on how realistic you want it to look:

http://www.sarissa-precision.com/Railways/cat1603369_3138839.aspx

Sarissa does a german armored train (and other trainwagons) from mdf. With a bit of work these can look quite good too.
Scale is roughly around 1/56 and its made for 28mm wargaming.

>>6386581
It's the worst of both worlds, actually.

Toys aren't being produced much anymore, because all that business executives see kids playing with are tablets and phones.

But at the same time, shows are only being greenlit, re-syndicated, or written with toy sales in mind (examples: Young Justice being canceled because executives thought they wouldn't be able to sell action figures to girls, or to sell figures of the females to boys; MLP taking a "Guardians of Harmony" direction to cater more to boys' toys; the new Ninja Turtles re-adopting a "mutant of the week" formula after the 2003 series made strides to get away from it).

I just want my American cartoons to be able to exist as the writers envision them without being hindered by projected toy sales, and toys to be designed as their own standalone fuck-awesome figures instead of rolling out a line of "every villain the good guys faced this season, with 3 articulation points in the torso and shoulders."

What little I have seen of the new Ben 10 series seems to be striking a decent balance, but it still suffers a bit from the above qualms.

The conversation usually goes something like this:

>Someone suggests the ThreeA one
>It's too expensive/not the right scale/doesn't come with enough weapons/has rubber parts/isn't the OG doomguy!!

Don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't acknowledge that many of these are legitimate complaints, it's just that...well, it's sad that even when people are given a really nice figure of a character they've been waiting on for decades, they'll find something to nitpick about and pass on it. This is a big part of why toy companies become hesitant to "give us what we want."
>>
>>6390386
They should probably actually give us what we WANT then, not "eh, pretty close" versions of it.

I don't want an off-scale Doomguy because he won't fit with anything else I have/anything I want to pair him with. I personally prefer the modern design to classic, so THAT doesn't bug me, but if somebody wants a CLASSIC Doomguy and they get this... it isn't what they wanted.

It'd be like someone really wanting a figure of the boxart Megaman, and someone just being like "Eh, just use the normal Megaman. He has plenty of figures." Bitch that's not what he wanted. If I want Taco Bell I don't want fucking Mexican food... I want Taco Bell.

>>6390140
>bought it and in person, it really looks pretty good.
This. I call it the Mezco effect. Figuarts printed faces and Mezco cloth goods look off in pictures but actually having it in hand, they look great and even sometimes amazing.

The pic of Luke's face that fucktard keeps spamming comes up as 5 inches tall on my monitor. That's nearly as tall as the figure itself. The head is more like 1.5 cm and at that small size it looks nearly perfect to the unaided eye.

Printed faces look like shit when they're misprinted, sure. But painted faces look terrible if the paint is misapplied as well. Whatever Bandai is doing, their stuff sells well and almost always looks great.

Ya got the wings on backwards.

I miss when Hasbro pulled out all the stops for their vehicles. I love 3.75" Star Wars vehicles so much, which makes the recent releases extra disappointing. The U-Wing could have been an amazing toy (troop carrying gunships are the best!), ugh.
>>
>>6390308

I really want to Royal Guard so badly. It's been scalped to high on Amazon for me to justify biting the building and snagging it.

I would buy it from Gamestop, if it was worth it for me. After shipping and tax it would just be meh.

I have a 25 dollar gift card to Amazon and figure I should not waste the money, if I can wait out a few more weeks and get it at a reasonable price.

Sorry for the rant.

But Mezco clothes still looks like it has texture in person. It's not as bad as it is in HQ photos, but its still there to make it just look like its some Hollywood costume like Raimi's Spider-Man or BvS Batman.

Same with the Figuarts. You may not see all the individual dots, but it still looks textured. And texture on a face is horrible, especially when that texture is supposed to look solid like the eyes and mouth. Eyes aren't fucking supposed to look bumpy.

Yeah, it's because they usually ship them out in these cardboard "folders", and those get banged up pretty fuckin' easily. The upside of Amazon and books is usually they've got damn good prices, downside is it's a 50/50 shot if any of them arrive without getting banged up because they skimp on packaging fucking everything. Still, I'll accept some dented packaging as long as the items within are intact, since I don't give a shit about the packaging.

>>6389518
Yeah, i hate ordering trades and books from Amazon, but i don't think its the packaging that bangs the fun out of them, since mine usually come perfectly packaged.
So it's some asshole or robot that's banging the shit out of it when he's taking it to his shipping box.
I've had a cover nearly ripped in half and there's no way that would have happened in transit. It had to be someone just grabbing it from the cover to stick it in.

I usually just use Barnes and Noble for all my online book/trade shopping, since they always package it well AND there are never dings or rips.

Other than that, i have no complains with Amazon. Never had a toy or electronic box broken.
