Long time no see /toy/
Ive been away from the hobby for a long time so I was wondering what the best Spider-man is nowadays? I'd prefer something Japanese, but I never liked the look of that revoltech

The beauty of the hip that Spidey uses, is that it gives a super range in the hips and as it doesn't use a crotch piece is the most effective waist crunch that with the ab crunch moving enough to look good and hit every pose you need
>>
Your best bets for a comic Spidey are the Marvel Legends Pizza Spidey or the Revoltech. The ML has less cuts and better looking knees imo but the Revo is just so damn articulated. It can even pull off the 3 point Spidey pose. Either is a good choice imo

My favorite is the vintage release of pizza spidey. I like the paint job a little better than the original version.

Got a couple chogokins, and they're pretty cool, but super heavy. What's the best stand to buy to support them? Namely, Shin Getter and Mazin Emperor G.

Yeah, absolutely no problems with posing, none of them ever fell off the thing either, not even Shin Getter and his heavy legs.

>>6723055
I see. Thank you for the recommendation.
Now for another question.
For figures with large weapon accessories, are there any stands to prop up such things?

Most regular stands come with claw hands so you can use those.

>>6723044
Beware of the weight when propping a diecast-heavy toy on stands. There was this infamous case of Max Factory's Genesic GaoGaiGar back in the early 2000s. Its stand held it at the hips but the legs were far too hefty, so the first version's hip joints would snap after being posed like this for a long time.
>>
>>6723091
OP said "super heavy chogokins", so I was expecting huge SoCs, but they're just Super Robot Chogokins. They aren't even close to the weight of the Max Gokin Genesic, so he shouldn't have breakage problems.

>>6723091
How dumb do you have to be to fuck something like that up? And for such a premium figure too.

Post anime nendoroids!

Can someone explain to me why mattel cancelled motu after 1987, besides still being one of their most selling lines? Leaked images of the propossed 1988 line all wouldve been straight repaints with no new parts, why would they be forced to be so cheap from a line that was making 7 billion a year?

Problem is, that the re-issues fans wanted (Teela, Fisto, Beast Man, Ram Man) were never put back into production.

Hasbro always knew which figures were in demand from the early days (or figures like Fisto, where people got fucked over because Hasbro fucked up and let scalpers over over via technicality). They just didn't pay attention.

Beast Man and Teela were both reissued.

Fisto and Ram Man came out after the reissue program had been discontinued because Matty had deemed it not worth the effort.

As a kid the way I remember it in MY life was that I had an ass-load of MOTU figures...but then the NES came out, and Gi Joe got cool again, and once TMNT got its hooks in I was obsessed. All the while Marvel and DC had great lines and then Power Rangers came and rounded off my pre/early teen years.

but honestly, nothing compared to the Nintendo Power life I was living immediately after my MOtU phase
>>
>>6723038

It was the same for me. I got the NES a few years late because I wasn't sure video games were that amazing, but in the late 80s I was totally hooked even though my country barely got a fraction of the games that came out in America. Action figures just sunk under my radar totally after a while.

File: tyrannosaurs in f-14s.jpg (626 KB, 1196x858)

Hello /toy/. I'd like to ask for your help for finding one of my old toys for me. It was a very large jigsaw puzzle, 1000 piece big, that depicted large scenery with dinosaurs.

I got it back in the first half of the 90s, approximately between 1993-95. It was quite large, and the picture itself was very wide. The dinosaur scenery itself looked like a "realistic" picture, by the standards of science at the time, so they were giant lizards not birds. What I mean by realistic is that it was a detailed, painted picture, not a cartoon or Barney or so.

The picture itself had a dark jungle on the left side with many branches and green/black parts, I think the plants themselves had a fern pattern. There was a large predator (Tyrannosaurus?) that was facing forward, as if it was about to bite you, but I'm not sure if it was on the left or right side. The right side had what looked like a large red spikey pile with lots of dinos heads & tails around. The middle had a beach, with large blue sky above. There were at least a bunch of palm trees and I think some mountains in the backgrounds, and some brachiosaurs (the long neck ones) as well, a herd of them close to each other.

I looked around but I could not find any puzzle set that had a similar picture of dinos. I'm mainly looking for the artwork itself, since I used to stare at it for so long. Is there any kind of site that categorizes puzzle sets, where I could look this up? Sadly I don't know anything specific about who made the set, other than that it had a reddish brown packaging.

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately that's not it. It's not a 1000 piece jigsaw for one.

I think in the one I had, none of the dinos were so close to the viewer, except that one predator which was directly facing the viewer.
>>
>>6720750
Or do you mean this one?
Cant find any bigger ones.
>>
>>6721788
No, I don't remember it having any mammoths or ice age stuff. I recall it was also much less busy than that picture, but it's been so long since I've seen it.

The left part had fern bushes / jungle (green on black), the middle had a beach with the sea behind it, the right side had a wasteland. There was a dino tail cropped in the bottom right.

And between the jungle and the beach there was a large predator (T-rex?) roaring onto the viewer, mouth wide open, but other than that none of the animals were so large.

Pilots have a better helmet design so you should just think yourself for your wise decision and keep them.

Do you care how much articulation a figure has? If so do you prefer an articulated figure over a more detailed but less articulated figure?

G.I. Joe ARAH articulation at a minimum.

I favour statues overall so I cling to aesthetics but I don't hold articulation against figures as a general thing.

Yamaguchi also leaves gaping holes and floaty shoulders.

Select figma, shf or even Frame arm girl kits. The way the joints are shaped and the recesses hollowed work with each other to look very streamlined in different poses.

Etrigan, OMAC, and Kamandi are all awesome, though Kamandi's hair prevents his head from moving much.

A family member got this for me as a late Christmas gift for drawing stuff. However when I got it open there were some problems, most noticeably the back like in the pictures. I’ve seen the figure online and that piece looks very different. I was wondering if anybody could tell me if this is normal or how I could fix this

This. It is a bootleg but it should be fine for just a few poses OP.

Like they said it looks like the midsection is upside down. just pop it apart. Flip the stomach piece around. and put it back together. should look decent

Yes.
Her body proportions are different than an average FIgma but her head isn't Nendoroid big and her bodies odd proportions wouldn't really work with a Nendoroid without changing it to match their normal setup.
I hate this trend where if it is slightly difficult or different it has to be a Nendoroid.
Also it makes me want to murder Goodsmile employees when they release part of a cast in Figma form and the rest as Nendos.
>>
>>6721722
I can definitely confirm that TP Link, ALBW Link, TP Zelda, and Tracer have all been sold at Best Buy and Gamestop stores. I guess whether a given store will get them depends on the traffic in that area - all the stores I’ve seen them at are in high-traffic areas.

We’ve had a metric shitton of KanColle figmas with nary an Abyssal in sight. In the same vein, we get like 6-8 Fate figmas a year, but none of those have been Kotomine or Solomon or Amakusa or even Jeanne Alter (who you’d think would be a no-brainer given how popular she is and the fact that she would share like 50% of her tooling with a figma that’s already in production). I agree that the whole “Japanese companies hate villains” thing is exaggerated, but they’re not exactly a priority for Max Factory.
