>300$

So the price is finally out. The poorfag tears and outrage on facebook are delicious, I genuinely thought mondo attracted people who buy 200$ 8" prints before now but I guess it's college aged wage slaves.

But...I kind of get it. I'm not sure if I like Iron giant to the point of 300$. For that price I could get a 1/24 scale Patlabor or two Valkyries. It's charge-at-order.

>8 in front claws
>6 in hind legs

Gives us 28 total, not counting the tail itself which is presumably metal wire in rubbery plastic, like Knifehead and co.

This is similar to what I was talking about, but has some differences in materials. Really, if you want to get super ghetto, I've seen people make molds with lego blocks, sculpey, a 2-litre soda bottle cap, marbles, bondo, and resin.

What are some good supplies to have for making a custom. I need to get some apoxie from amazon but I figure I should get some more stuff so I get the free shipping. Anything you think could be useful? I've already got the basics like sculpey, sculpting tools, paint, and resin.

Files, various grits of sandpaper (Especially higher grits), a mask of some sort so you aren't breathing toxic resin dust into your lungs (Seriously, get a mask, resin dust is really bad for you), possibly a panel scriber, learn how to pin parts, and maybe a small hobby saw. Sheets of styrene can also come in handy for scratch building small parts.

Admittedly, most of my experience comes from model kits but I assume a good bit of it transfers over to figures.

Forgive my ignorance but is step 1 clay over wire? also in step 2 why does he wrap it in tinfoil?
>>
>>4685687
Yes it's the sculpy over wire. You use tin foil to add volume where you need it in the sculpt and then put your sculpting material on top of it. Otherwise using straight clay can make it too heavy on the wire, which will move it out of place and it might not bake through properly. Plus it saves you money by not using as much material

Step 1 was dunking the tachi in near boiling water to soften it up a bit, not sure if it was necesary but it helped a little at least. Then I just clipped the plug off with some flush cutters. Used a 1/8 inch drill bit on a Dremel at the lowest speed to make a hole centered were the post was, just deep enough to stuck three of these: http://www.dx.com/p/ysdx-653-1mm-neodymium-magnet-cube-diy-puzzle-set-silver-100-pcs-174527 in there with the last one sticking out a little bit. Pulled the magnets out, applied super glue with a tooth pick to the hole, jammed magnets back in and wiped away the excess glue that seeped out from the edges. Let that set for a while and you're done. If I want it to stick to a flat vertical surface I add a couple more of those tiny magnets so the legs aren't smashed flat. With just the ones glued inside it hangs over edges or on screw heads or pipes nicely.

How come a lot of you...don't own any female figures? And i mean, not one, in shelves and shelves of dudes.

I think your estimation of people to empathize with others that are not exactly like themselves is a little limited. Not every man needs a mirror image of himself inserted in a story to enjoy it. in fact, a lot of people don't even need or want self inserts. they just want the story. if the lead character, or one of the sides, is female, a lot of people don't have any problem with that. Case in point: the incredible success of the Hunger Games.

But, you are right, little boys do generally prefer male characters. I think this is partly because of outside bullshit, though. While girls are generally ignored with their play, boys are heavily policed, and will be teased by peers and admonished by parents for playing with girl toys. A lot of boys would want toys of female characters, so they can have a complete team, and act out their adventures. I know that's why I wanted Lady Jaye and Scarlet Joes. Also, female villains are objectively better and more fun that male villains.

There is also the issue of Japanese figure collectors. they probably aren't collecting Samus Aran and Major Kusanagi Figmas so they can pretend they are those women.

old priest, old librarian, or even old warrior.
Same shit.
How many people have figures of old people? Probably even fewer than those who own female figures, even though their sex might match the old person figure. It's all about identifying with the character and there aren't many people who identify with being female or being old. Few people fantasize about being that way. There is little want to be roleplaying that, so few people buy those types of figures.

>>4685038
It's a simplification, like i said "basic human behavior" and it can and is more complex than that, but it's the general gist of the whole story as a stereotype.
>Case in point: the incredible success of the Hunger Games.
How about the not-so-success of the toys? People buy statueshit for other lines, but not Hunger Games stuff. People might watch a movie just to check out whateverhernameisthatgotnudies released in an action movie, but playing as her? Where's the top video game or toy sales to match that?
>I think this is partly because of outside bullshit, though.
NOPE.
It's also seen in animals too, unless you're saying chimps love teasing each other for not fitting in with stereotypical [i]human[/i] male roles. So it's a pretty inate thing humans are reacting to, and the fact other humans will tease you about it is because you're not acting in that inate/expected way.. so maybe it's just exaggerated a bit more because of that reprimanding.
All signs point toward it NOT being an chicken or an egg question.

This.
One of the few female figures I had as a kid was the Kenner Aliens Ripley, and she was never the timid damsel-in-distress whenever I played out scenes with my action figures. In my toy-scenes she was just a parallel version of cannon Ripley (this was years before Resurrection) that was both a badass and brains of the team. Ripley always won, though. Whoever was on her side also won. Maybe a few casualties in the team, and Ripley wasn't ALWAYS the one to make the final kill that saved the day, but whatever team she won in the end. As I got into anime in my teens I got more into female heroines (never got into DC or Marvel outside of Batman TAS and the old X-Men series), so now I want more female characters. Not just ones like Motoko Kusanagi or Ryuko Matoi, but even non-action lead females who I just like as characters in general.

>how many people have figures of old people?

You are full of shit. When I was a kid I used to pretend I was an old, wise librarian like the one in The Neverending Story, and I would recommend books to my family. Whenever I played with Playmobil sets my main character was a panther. I would always pick up the non-human characters in any videogames I played, and still do. I would run on all fours and pretend I was a hog or a wolf. Yet you dismiss the notion of anybody enjoying a female figure because it's outside of the scope. C'mon, man.

Revoltech has the best poses and expressions.
SAS has the best sculpture and paint, but it's completely different from the manga designs.
Figuarts are the most faithful ones and more likely to cover far more characters than any other line.

No one can tell you that. Ryuuko was still in-stock a few months after release, maybe they made too many of her, no one knows, but MF/GSC will probably want to avoid it with this release. There's still a chance this will happen with Satsuki too; but with that higher price and extra exclusive parts I'm not so sure. (*Ryuuko's price on Manda is slightly higher than her release price).

I wouldn't risk buying her preowned if I were you.

I actually had this. ALL of the LEGO Western sets, actually. Which is really weird, considering that Westerns are among some of my least favorite things, ever. I was more into Space, Pirates, and Castle from the LEGO line when I was a kid.
