Brits do the same shit with "28 mm" or "6mm" scale wargaming figures

Wargaming figures should be sold by scale, especially considering there's a lot of vehicles in most games anyway. That way it would be easy to know what terrain accessories are right.

Can we include the Spider-Man series with it because that Metallic Scorpion and first Hobgoblin (despite the pumpkin bomb and darker tone) were hands down some of the best, imo. The Green Goblin that came after Hobby was excellent as well.

I'm still waiting on a damn Mcguinness style Deadpool. You'd think something would have come out like that since they churn out so much Deadpool shit.

I watched a documentary on these a while back, some just like dressing up babies without actually taking care of a baby, while others have lost children and use them to cope. It was pretty interesting, here's a link: https://youtu.be/EkyUZJDGvMY

Personally I can kind of see the appeal, I like dressing up my stuffed animals, but I can't see myself spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on a hyper realistic baby doll. I have been tempted by this baby platypus from a reborn artist, but it's still too pricey for me.

>Ripped from Superman
Except from some overlapping details that could have came from anywhere, he ripped directly from Journey to The West. Nothing else except his baby pod is similar to Superman in the whole series.
Future Trunks being Terminator is also a stretch. The only similarities are bad futures, machines, and time guy. Which is a common trope. Then the story goes way the fuck into left field.

Hello there!
I got some toys in a thrift store lately and for a life of me can't say what they exacly are.
First one is this crocodile-man in power armor throwing smiling head-bomb-thing.
It's made of really hard rubber and looks pretty solid. It has no markings.

The body looks like a Hot Wheels Pontiac Fiero but without the interior and blanked out windows and with the Tonka wheels. I'm guessing it probably came with a car carrier tractor trailer and Tonka borrowed the Hot Wheels molds for the body.

We might be seeing other toy lines making more and more Marvel Comics action figures. Will it change the Marvel AY line future plans? Would it matter? Could Revoltechs crush any late adopters?

>The whole point, and how they save money, is using the same sets of joints. They can't go around making specific new joints every time like Figuarts.
As far as saving money for tooling goes, making molds for single new type of joint is a blip compared to a newly sculpted figure for every release. And I guarantee they've had to make new molds for the regular joints, there's only so many uses you can get out of a mold before wear starts degrading, and that's the kind of thing that would show up twice as fast as something like a joint. I really don't think cost is what's stopping them from making a version of the mini hip joint that's like 50% bigger to use on larger figures.

>They just did it with new Revo joints and then the Mini joints set.
It's kinda crazy to think about, but snake was the first one to use him and he came out 3 and a half years ago. I think we're overdue.

>I highly doubt they would redo a character though. Easier profit just to reissue him over and over.
Agreed.
>>
>>6677031
It's the necessity of such new joints though. Making new sculpts for new Revos is a given, necessary cost. But they have all the joints they need so it's a waste to make new ones, Waste is a waste no matter how small, especially if it doesn't improve things drastically. And the Minis are recent considering Revos didn't have drastic changes in the joints until Nexus in 2013. No. 1 complaint with Revos was "ratchets makes posing hard!" since 2006 and it took that long to tweak the joints.

They're not gonna change things for a while. Especially since they produce fewer Revos per year. Technically Yamaguchi regressed by using more cut joints and ball joints like his Monoshaft Drive series days.

not the case of course, but if it was, it doesn't change the lacking articulation and ugliness factor.

They aren't as chunky as Scouts/Basics due to the downsized Movie/Prime designs.
