Post toys with cool light piping!

It's a gimmick many toys have where a "light up" effect is achieved by clever placement of clear plastic and a rear-facing light source, pic stolen from the TF wiki article on the subject.
>>
>>6581870
oh, in that case I don't think I own any toys with that effect then

speaking of the light piping and trasnformers prime if i remember right both it versions of frenzy and rumble had light piping in there heads and chest giving off a cool effect

TF prime had a surprising number of really great moulds, considering how bad/underwhelming most of the line was.

I sold my entire collection, but I still want toys in some capacity. I’m a competionist and I can’t keep on like that, but there’s still so many individual toys and figures that are too expensive to get. Lost in time forever. Yo I had to be there at the right time with the funds available or else you miss out on the toy line forever. What am I supposed to do? I want to get a few toys just a few toys nothing too expensive just to have. Nice and easy to collect. Nice and affordable. I’m cured all right, I’m cured.
>>
I’ll play with them once and they’ll sit on my shelf for a year collecting dust before I even think about touching them again. But I have a longing for the toy experience still! I used to collect y’know...
>>
Just owning toys itself isn't a great hobby, i wouldn't even say it's a hobby, it's what you do with toys on the side.

Start a blog/website about toys, learn to make dioramas, make some videos, get into photography, maybe learn to edit your photos in photoshop or just DO something with your toys, if that's not an option for you, then find a real hobby and just accept the fact that toys are a money sink.
>>
I used to be a completionist like you, but then i took a wumpus in my paycheck. I actually found it more enjoyable buying individual characters over full teams in favor of making my own. I still complete at times, but only while i can afford it and when i truly want the characters

Any number of dollhouse furniture sites will have something at least similar.

Search for what's called a "side chair", and you should find plenty of simple, straight-back chairs that at least come close, if not being an exact duplicate.

Me too, especially after having been through the hell of trying to retail their crap. What I suspect is that HTS has just about taken the place of smaller toy stores. Oh, people can say HTS isn't Hasbro, but that's like saying Dodge isn't Chrysler or eBay isn't PayPal. I really doubt manufacturing costs went up anything close to how far "wholesale" costs went up. It's just their way "nudging" small shops out without up and cutting them off.

It's time for Marvel and other toy companies to get back to this type of packaging. I'm tired of having jackasses stealing parts and swapping out figures along with employees who don't give a fuck. Diamondl Select figures still have the right idea and still cost about the same as Legends and DC figures. Unless it's a premium $50+ figure I don't a shit about the box. Stop inflating the price with bullshit packaging that promote theft.

Give me a second to get a good set up. The few things I will make note of here that may put you one way or another. First, he's huge -- big, beefy, whatever you want to call it, but he takes up a good chunk of space. Second, he's pointy. I had a friend return him because he felt he was just too uncomfortable to pose and transform. Third, his headmaster, while very nice in concept, doesn't go in and out so easily. Or that the out is far easier than the in. A basic consensus is that MM improved from Titan to Rex (I forgot to mention I also recently was able to pick up Rex, but he's not up on that shelf so it slipped my mind), and Rex to Apollo, that Scorpion is something of a step back.

That's not to say I don't enjoy him, I do. I like his bigness, but unfortunately space constraints currently keep him displayed as a robot. But there have to be some honest criticisms addressed in considering a purchase.

>>
>>6580268
They're the new style revojoints. Smooth action, capped pegs so they don't slide out.
>>
>>6581296
The limbs are kind soft, as in lacking the firm support that real Figma limbs have. Not a boiled noodle, and it’ll still stand, it just has really pliant plastic for those parts.

Paint’s sloppy, which is to be expected.

Some joints were squeaky-tight and I was afraid they’d snap. Bootleg ass-tech is okay but nothing glorious likethe real deal (wider gaps at the hips and thighs).

Great custom fodder for titty-monsters, decent lewding figure.

Hi /toy/, are Threezero's 1/6 scale figures worth pre-ordering? Is the quality worth the price or do retail versions deviate a lot from the prototype pictures, looks wise? I'm asking because I kinda like pic realated, but don't know whether the price will drop after release.

This one

With the exception of a few select figures I've always taken my figures out of their box so I can pose and display them.

However I saved all the boxes they came in and put them in a closet I have just for toy boxes. Recently I started to wonder if there is any real reason to continue doing this. What do you think? Get rid of the boxes they came in if they're on display?

Are you going to live in the same place forever? Think about trying to move a large collection of figures, with all their accessories.
Additionally, just storing figures not on display is more convenient with the original packaging.
>>
>>6581441
putting figures into ziplock bags is way more convenient and saves more space, or for figmas just putting them in the bags they come with
>>
>>6581553
I agree that it saves space, but I wouldn't feel as confident moving a box full of bagged figures. Too much breakage potential, unless you wrapped each in bubble wrap or somethin

The cartoon line did 7 villains (8 if you count Protoman who was evil in that show).
Figuarts did Bass, Vile and Sigma (as a fucking statue)
The Sentinel line did Cutman.

The only toyline to do any number of bosses was the tiny PVC gashapon line which covered most bosses from MM1-6 and the first two MMX games. But of course they're just little statues
