What I meant was they were meant for children but found an adult audience. Japan realised early that toys weren't just cheap tat for kids.
This is not a universally true statement.

Transformers, for example, Tomy might slap on more paint apps and strive more for "show accuracy" but the plastic quality, level of paint chipping in the package, stress marks and all that are about the same as Hasbro versions. Maybe moreso because all that extra paint means more to scratch up when a factory worker is shoving the thing into the packaging.
still better qc than neca poop
>Japan has always catered to older teenager and adult collectors since the days of Popynica chogokins.
Nope. Do your research.

Look at any of the old vintage Popy commercials on Youtube, or Popy catalog/ print advertisements, and you'll see kids (6-10 year olds and thereabouts). Their first foray into toy making was a collection of henshin belts and plastic add-ons for tricycles so kids could play Kamen Rider.
Their first line were Mazinger z, The Robocon toys, Doreamon, and Norakuro. All geared towards kids.
Hell, the Jumbo Machinder Spacer was a ride on toy for kids.

The adult collector wasn't targeted until the creation of the "Soul of Chogokin" line which started 10 years after Popy had stopped producing, and that was aimed at the kids who were now grownups.
Toy lines geared towards kids dwarfs the amount of stuff geared toward the older/adult collector.
We just don't see a lot of it at places like HLJ, Amiami, and the usual lot because that's not their focus audience.

>Plastica.jp will sell blank bodies once he's happy with the final design.
>Megami Device (メガミデバイス) is another proposed line using that new body, so they'll be compatible too. They could be GKs, model kits, or figures. Too soon to know.
>Frame Arms Girl continues with an unarmored kit plus the architect is up next, with another mech on the way.
>Blade teamed up with Megahouse to make some cheaper, 8cm tall 1:1 battle robot figures called Desktop Army. Their plan includes 3d printable add-ons to appeal to customizers.

Most importantly cover the face parts but given that arnval is mostly white you might want to wrap her up

Small belt pouches make for adorable photos too.
Just noticed that there's a little crack in the ankle joint of my Shinki. Is there anything to do to prevent it from eventually breaking in the future?
Ankle joint meaning the peg that goes into the foot?

You can try pinning a thin wire into it if it's that. If it's the plastic around the rivet, maybe superglue.

Stop that.

Please fuck off back to rangerboard.
Kiwami Gaim has a plug in the back for the plastic cape but the top also clips in. As for the material, that's a reused cape from an old toy, how he posed it I don't know.

Does he come with at least a couple of normal hands or is it just the Bombers?

If this belongs in a topic, I apologize and I'll remove this asap.

I'm going to japan soon, and it's my first time. I'm very interested in buying stuff there but I dont really know what are the good shops to check out, or any japanese etiquette when in a shop.

For you guys who have been to japan, what has your experience been, what shops did you enjoy? or would it better to just go into random shops.

I'm more of a Toku guy, but I just want to explore

Lost it.
Protip: don't. You ain't gonna find anything you can't find online and you'll pay more. There's absolutely 0 reason to go buy things from a physical japanese store unless you're a weeaboo.
they have pictures when at a bar?

And here we have another butthead who has never stepped out of his basement, much less boarded a plane overseas.

There's a shit load of good deals and rare finds to be had shopping in person. You just need to know where to look.

By that I don't mean Mandarake akiba. The place is a bloody tourist trap now. Thanks, gaijin assholes.
Yeah, generally. If they don't, use the google translate app (where you can draw kanji) to figure stuff out.
I dunno, I got figma Kanbaru Suruga there for 2300, and plenty of doujins for 300 yen or less.

Sorry to barge in your thread bros, but this didn't seem worth making its own thread for, and I figured some of you guys might know. Is NXEdgeStyle worth the money? I've not really liked the look of the ones released so far, but god help me, I actually think the Astray looks rad. And this is coming from a staunch Astray hater. I am a bit trouble though that it doesn't appear to be able to lift its legs up, like, at all, at least according to Nuu's review.

Basically, I have no experience with this line, is it worthwhile?
This might sound kinda weird, but I think the A.N.I.M.E. releases look too...modern...and stable. I want them to look a bit more derpy, y'know? A little more goofy and oddly proportioned. I mean, I wanna go all-out on this shit--if it looks too similar to a modern interpretation of the MS, then what's the point even?

Fett will be much harder to find in the aftermarket for cheap later
I like how the combo of the Hades Force and Rebel Pilot parts makes it look like he's slowly being infected or corrupted from his left side. Cool build Baldy.
That's what I was initially going for which is why I made the weapon with Black as the primary color to kinda show where the "source" of corruption was coming from but mix in some Orange to show that it belongs to him still.

I'm considering making the left hand completely black as well to match better, but I just REALLY like how the orange contrasts against it.
Just realized hades colorway is a homage to hades from hercules

Ehh, nah, I really doubt it. Hades (from Hercules) is a very distinct combo of cerulean blues, warm greys, and black.

Hades (from Glyos) has gone through many iterations. He actually started out with this combo of black and GITD with a clear amber spray. He then moved onto black/GITD, and only in later iterations did the aqua color start to become prominent. In any case, the dominant colors for Hades Force are now flat black and aqua.

It's just too much of a stretch is what I'm saying. Matt is actually very exacting when it comes to colors, and if he were trying for an homage it would be much more apparent. I mean, the colors honestly aren't even close. Google (Disney's) Hades and put him next to any Glyos Hades figure and there really isn't much resemblance whatsoever.

How is it that a bootleg can be just as good as the real thing and only cost $12? Is bandai really making THAT much of a profit per figure?

>licensing fees, engineer the articulation, and sculpt

This. Also, you can bring that cost down even more if you cut corners and skip QC, which definitely happened.

>I legitimately think the skin tone and texture look better on this bootleg.
As far as I can tell, it's the same as the retail release. I sort of wish they had used a darker shade though, I wasn't a fan of the pale green in the first place.

>How does the rest of it hold up?
At least on mine, the waist piece isn't glued in at all, there's a bunch of chipped paint, and there are several areas where stuff is glued in crooked like the eyes and neck. It's fine considering it's a third of the price and that I was going to skip it in the first place, but yeah, there're some concessions.
where is it $12?
>This looks like it's coming out of the same moulds as the original
That is the price for investing in China, they stab you in the back.
The bootleg's lips aren't as dark as the official release, which is a big improvement.
yeah, same question. Bumpity bump

Did you get any good nendo-related deal this past black friday or this cyber monday?

What is a Nendoroid, you may ask?

Guide/Product release info found here:

A fellow nendofag made a nendoroid spreadsheet in Google Docs, compiling info regarding names, # of faces, accessories, etc of all the nendos made so far

Reminder: if you want GSC to make or rerelease something you need to tell them you want it.

Tru that was my thinking as well. Love those Shinkawa eyes too.

MGSV really soured me on MGS for a while though.
he is because of smash bros, just like marth and mega man
Megaman has more toys and useless video games thanNess ever will
Even if he's less relevant he will sell well considering how obsessive both japanese and western MOTHER fans are.

So I recently got my hands on all three of these dolls thanks to Goodwill having what I believe is the remaining stock of em, hell if you're interested in em you might be able to find em at your local goodwill.

Getting to the point, I want to know if there's any clothes that'd fit em well, something that'd make em look a little more casual, but it'd be a bonus there's military gear that'd fit em.

They're creepy because they also have pet dogs that look just like them.

They could be mutants or aliens that colonized what remained of a post apocalyptic earth, and the dogs are what remain of earths natural beings. Other than that I never understood why they had em.
Looks like they'd fit Azone Pure Neemo S or M. Can't guarantee though. If you do try, make sure you're buying Pure Neemo and not Picco Neemo, as Piccos are half the size.
They don't, they're way too fucking small for pure neemo stuff.
Pinkie Cooper dolls are like a wet dream for furries who really like loli girls...
