Always wondered what and how much articulation is needed in a action figure to be considered perfect.

What do you guys think?

as much as possible before it breaks the sculpt and immersion.

ive always wondered if there was a figure out there meant to realistically display articulation of a human meaning the figure wouldnt bend past what a normal human could.

thanks for clearing that up!

do we know what vol 3 is yet? probably the X ranger's mech and some auxiliary vehicles, right?

B2Five is a line of highly articulated 1/28 figures and transforming vehicles/mecha with interchangeable parts.

>News
Lots of new products were revealed at C3AFA Hong Kong. Looks like a new series of Votoms mecha and pilots are on the way.

Redpill me on Hexa Gear. They look cool, but aren't they model kits? How much experience does one need to build them (well)? What tools? Will they look like shit without extensive paint apps?

Alternatively you could get the Master Box Record set if you don't like the base colours of the original release. Also comes with DVD explaining backstory they made for Hexa Gear so far but if I knew anything from the Master Box Record set Kotobukiya made for Frame Arms most likely the footage is on Youtube and you can see it yourself.

> I don't like the way a line looks so it's universally trash
>Cool, whatever

I don't have a hateboner for PAKs, anon. It's just that most of them are as overpriced as nowadays figmas if not more AND the quality sucks monkey balls most of the time. Really crappy hair sculpts, way worse than any figma I've seen. Shitty and greasy looking paintjobs. Unsightly joints. If you can't see how bad they are and you actually believe PAK pricing makes sense given its quality, you're in no position to criticize figma pricing.

>Nah, consumers can talk all the shit they want

Of course they can, but you're acomplishing nothing doing so here.

>And judging by the increase in shelfwarmers from Figma, the complaints are being backed up.

Figmas that needed months to sell out have been a thing for years. Long gone are the days of figma pre-orders getting sold out in minutes.

Actually, the 5000 number is likely a minimum china is willing to put up with.
It's why its such a common number across so many figures that are exclusive, like at Comic Con.

It's also one that will grow, whereas Joes won't. Joes may get a slight bump when it gets new media, but once its out of the box office the property plummets once again to its plateaued levels.

>If there were 5000 Joe fans willing to buy stuff above regular retail I'd be shocked. It's a poor, small fanbase. Star Wars is a big, rich fanbase.
The GI Joe fanbase is made up of more than 5000 fans and buy up a lot of expensive stuff all the time.
how much of the Acid Rain, Boss Fight Studios, MGR, and various diecast purchasers are part of the GI Joe fanbase?
I also buy giant mechs and monsters from Mythic Legions for $100+.
We're more than willing to drop a ton of money on these types of toys, because they'll work with the rest of our collections.

For stuff that's actually GI Joe related? There is undoubtedly more interest in than those other lines

I mean, look at San Diego, where stuff like this sells out instantly. At least 5000 units produced, sold out at San Diego Comic Con. It's made of fucking cardboard and cost $60.

Nationwide, there's going to be far more fans.

Mega Box just seems to indicate a larger sized figure, it doesn't seem to have anything to do with licensed or not. Stryker tagged his Rhyden photo #megabox.
>>
>>6788653

He also put Rhyden as BB06, continuing the Beast Box numbering system. The Alien for is MB01, or Mega Box 01. So Rhyden is a Beast Box and the Alien, Power Loader and Getter are Mega Boxes. I also don't think its about size as so far, all the Mega Boxes are shown to be capable of being stored in the same exact storage cubes as all the beast boxes.
