Big Bad Shithole is pretty much your only option

What figure are you hanging for this year? Maybe this year. I'm pretty sure we all know how good the Horsemen are at keeping a schedule at this point.

I'm getting antsy for some goblin hordes

I'm really excited for Goblins, especially if someone makes a Goblin Slayer figma/figuarts.

Any chance advent of decay is going to ship in 2018? Or are we pretty much set for 2019+?
>>
>>6749390
I thought they said like late summer for 2018
>>
>>6749393
They also said april but were nowhere near close to that id say were quickly shooting past summer and heading into fall 2018 at this point. Rediculous, this KS took in close to 1million and it takes a year and a half. I got all my bossfight stuff in like less than 6 months
>>
Anybody have the potp rodimus weapon base mode pic?
>>
>>6749403
Wow that's awesome, I can't believe you got the Boss Fight figures in 6 months when they didn't actually ship out until nearly 2 years after the KS launched (nearly 9 months later then their expected ship date). You must have some sort of super time machine or something to have pulled that off.

>>6749390
They'll be shipping late summer. things seem to be going smoother this time around compared to the first KS. They're almost finished with the paint masters and after that they can move into full production. Hopefully we'll have better estimates after the last pre-order period which I hope starts up in a month or so.
>>
>>6749390
I'm confident they will ship this year. The first Kickstarter was delayed by a couple of months, AoD has a few more figures than the last one. Plus there was the issue that the factory fucked the tolerances of the Covenant of Shadow wave, so they want to make sure everything is spot on this time.
It won't be like the Ravens KS, which shipped nearly a year after their estimate.
End of the day, I'm not fussed, so long as I get my figures.
>>
>>6749598
Its been just short of a year. How is are they not even in production yet? You call that smooth? Now china is gonna shut down for 3 weeks. Ill eat my dick if they’re here by summer.

What are you getting at?
>>
>>6750153
I can't find this Bucky O'Hare Kickstarter that magically shipped in 6 months.
Maybe it's because you are full of shit.

The Horsemen's initial estimate for delivery was April. They have kept us up to date to any change in the schedule through the KS updates. I remember one of the reasons was to tweak the tolerances, and the second was because they realised that there was not a chance of manufacturing happening before Chink New Year. Also, quality takes time, a concept I can see you are unfamiliar with considering you collect BFS.

Fuck off back to your Boss Fight thread and enjoy your Hasbro quality paint jobs, faggot.
>>
>>6750335
That your overpriced GI Joes with soft sculpt details and simplistic paint shouldn't be compared to a quality figure line.

Also, a 2 figure wave vs a 43 figure wave. Jesus, fuck, imagine having to inspect the QC of 41 less figures, also the production time, fucking hell, I can't even be bothered spelling it out to you.

This will be the last time anyone in this thread gives you any attention, because if you can't see that you're attempt at a comparison is way off, then you are clearly retarded, and your parents should seek a retroactive abortion.

I'm also thinking about piking up a Templar builder as I already have one but kind of want a buddy for him

Not him but here is my 1.0 Atlus. I think the problem is more because of shitty flesh tone paint and not the sculpt, but the problem is really prevalent among the early Barbarian Builder (their best selling figure), the flesh toned brown Minotaur and Atlus.

I had the Green naked Orc from 1.0, and black Minotaur from 1.5 they're both fine.
>>
>>6755157
Yeah, my 1.0 Barbarian scratched immediately, like the very first time I moved his shoulder. My minotaur from 1.5 has never scratched and I mess with it pretty frequently. I think the 1.0 flesh paint was fucked.
>>
>>6755157
>>6755168
That sucks! Is it a human-skin-only issue?
>>
>>6755168
Same here. I barely ever move my atlus. However my orc also scratched so ymmv. Im debating on picking up a preorder atlus only to see if they fixed paint issues.
>>
>>6755177
>However my orc also scratched so ymmv
Which one? The black/dark one from 1.75 I've seen many posts from 4H forum of him flaking off, I cannot confirm because I don't have him.

>>6755175
This is just my experience. I have two non flesh toned figures with that mold and they're fine. The two flesh toned ones I have both flakes and scratch like a bitch, even after precaution and lots of varnish
>>
>>6755189
Umm i forget the names but he was the shirtless non builder from 1.0

That's too bad. My Urku is still looking great, so I guess it is luck dependent. The only consistent problem seemed to be relating to Barbarian Builder & Atlus.

Anyway while we're talking about paint scrape, just a warning the Troll also paint scrape pretty bad. However since he's so big, a minor scrape here and there is not that noticeable.

And before you guys shit on me, I'm not the Rancor guy.

Here's his paint scrapping at his elbow pit from that same day in April.

There's more scraps today than there were last year, because the paint is shoddy and i pose him.

I think I'm going to preorder two even though I told myself not to. I'm thinking Pixxus and Altus. Although I'm considering the templar or Vorgus.

And can someone remind me when these would ship?
>>
>>6757661
Not til around when Advent of Decay ships, so sometime in summer.

I originally told myself two, but Vorgus is too cool to pass up. But I for sure need some skellys for Brother Mandibulous to lead.
>>
>>6757661
Just a heads up that there isn't any rust coloring on pixxus. It's all just shiny blue. I got him when he was first released.
>>
>>6757931
That's a bit disappointing, although I might just add it myself same as I did for my basic skeleton.
>>
>>6758507
What'd you use for the background and the flooring?
>>
>>6758879
I made it out of that hard, pink sheet foam.
>>
>>6758884
So just carved in the lines for the bricks then? Is the brick texture just how the foam looks?
>>
>>6758885
Oh, yeah, the lines are carved in. I just measured them out and then ran a ballpoint pen over them. Then solid black, then drybrush on grays, then I used a real light mist of that rock texture spray paint (it does not melt styrofoam, which is a handy thing to remember), and then a black wash all over it. Then sealed it.

So this is the general state of my 1.0 barbarian builder; he's been handled all of a few times. These all happened almost immediately and I swear I'm no hamhands. I really want a cool barbarian guy but he just makes me sad to look at. What should I do? Sell him and like get Attlus from all stars? Or maybe make some soft goods for him, some leather and stuff to help hide the problems? Would people buy him in this state?

I love all his options and pieces, but he keeps destroying his own paint.
>>
>>6759048
No offense towards the 4H, but I've had similar problems of paint flaking off with my Gothitropolis birds, especially in the joint areas. I just ended up repainting the paint flakes and sealed the paint myself since it was easy enough to do for generic-colored birds but yeah I'd be hard-pressed to repair flesh tones unless you're decent at painting. If it were me, I'd repaint it so it looks as if he has battle-damage though the soft goods idea sounds like a pretty good alternative if you can find some nice materials to cover him up
>>
>>6751168
I wish they'd make the Templar with a sugarloaf helmet.
>>
>>6759048
What I don't understand is the used skin colored plastic for the joints because clearly they new the paint would scrape there. If they'd used it for the rest of the body, very few people would have noticed the paint scrapes.

am I really about to preorder $103 worth of toys while my original order hasnt come in yet and is also delayed?
>>
>>6763042
Yes. This is the life we choose. I pledged over $700 and im ordering, thankfully just a pixxus and deltigar. The other i either have or dont care for. Unfortunately the reality is this is the best option. I learned the hard way since the birds KS always pre order. The in stock sales have always been a shit show and these figures are a scalpers wet dream. Unfortunately 4Hs production methods do nothing to mitigate the outrageous scalping but it is what it is. Always pre order or regret later. Thankfully I have a pixxus now after missing out multiple times.
>>
>We were hoping the Mythic Legions: All-Stars 2.0 wave would be shipping to us in late Summer 2018, but it's possible that it may be as late as Fall/Winter 2018. We'll know more once production begins, and we'll update you as soon as we hear back from our factory on that.
>>
>>6763059
That's the thing that makes me alright with reordering stuff I'm on the fence for, I can always just sell them if I regret buying them. I wouldn't sell them for more than double though, if anything just try to break even as I know how much people on here like them
>>
>>6763090
So is it possible they will have both All Stars 2.0 and Advent of Decay come out at the same time? I can only hope so

>>6763159
>I can always just sell them if I regret buying them
Unless for some reason the figure fall apart or the paint scrapes then you're screwed
>>
>>6763166
Oh no I'm talking about right as I get them, like if I lose interest in collection before I get them. I've also seen people sell them on ebay used and are fine
>>
>>6763159
That's what I did back in their sale. I got an extra godfrey because their site crapped on me and the order went through twice. Just sold it to some guy in here for retail+shipping.

Funds aren't exactly there at the moment due to some unforseen circumstances so I'm on the fence about ordering some myself. I know I'll regret not ordering them later when everything is arriving, though. I should still probably do it.

New to Mythic Legions: are the upcoming Advent of Decay figures going to have pre-orders put up on the Store Horsemen site the same way as the the 2.0 lineup? Ordered Carpathias and Vorgus as my first Mythic Legions and I'm eagerly awaiting the new stuff.

They have plenty of articulation, but all of it is hampered by the sculpt, so they're basically McStatues.
They're about as poseable as one of Hasbro's Titan 10" $15 figures.

Very disappointing considering the price and the fact that Hasbro engineers same sized toys better, which are more poseable despite having less articulation.

And yeah, the paint scraps off from the joints rubbing together. You will be forcing the joints to try and pose them, btw, because of how frustratingly unposeable they are thanks to the sculpt interferring way too much.

I didn’t get into mythic legions until the advent of decay and those where my first Kickstarter experience with 4HM.

>>6770407
Except it isn't two years ago and they switched to more durable plastic since 2015. Hence the figure being reviewed really well.
pic of an even larger sized figure that only costs $100 and has useable articulation.

Sorry guys but almost everyone else releases giant figures for about the same price and gives you way more bang for your buck.
The trolls are not worth their price and are disappointing when compared to other giant figures.

>>6771470
Compared to other kickstarter lines, they're slow as shit, especially when compared to other professionals who work in the toy industry. Then you take into account that some companies don't rely on kickstarter to make everything for them, so they'll release a product like a normal company does on a yearly/quarter schedule.
So 4H is low tier when it comes to output and other things.

Eat a cock numbnuts. They are worth the money. "Everyone else" has full access to budgeting for full waves of toys that they can pull cash in from to fund and keep costs down. "Everyone else" has full working factories that allow them to mass produce things. Costs go up when things are more limited like this. Deal with it.

You're retarded.

The guy claims they're worth the money, but it isn't.
So what if they don't have access to the resources of other companies have? What you got is NOT worth the price compared to everyone else's.

It's like releasing this shit for $80 and saying it's worth the price because its made by rednecks in north carolina assembled by their grandparents.

Sorry, but in this day and age we're getting rednecks from New Mexico making toys that are comparable to what large companies are capable of. Yeah, they cost more but it's still within the same price range and engineered just as well.
This entire thread is about figures that ARE comparable to other 6" toylines, so you're already full of shit.

The trolls are NOT comparable to other giant figures within their price range and the engineering IS shit considering the joints that they do have. You don't need to have Hasbro's resources to engineer better joints.

>have your axe to grind against the 4H. From day fucking one you wouldn't shut up and quit whining, and you're still here doing the same song and dance. You have zero idea of what you're talking about.
Yeah, i have an axe to grind and that's because i know full well what I'm talking about.

I bought into the line and was severely disappointed
As you can see, i buy many large oversized figures, so i can directly compare them to everything I buy.

I may sing the same song and dance and that's because why would i change my song and dance if the toy is exactly the same as when i bought it?

So where's your proof of actually owning a troll to be able to defend it or anything of comparable size?
All you've done is blindly defended these figures.

Again, there's no reason they could have engineered better joints. It just involves better forethought and planning instead of just being like some lazy Mattel figure.
Again, there's every reason that they're comparable because other companies, even 4H themselves, can do comparable figures. Somehow you want to claim that the Trolls are immune to the comparison because...why?

I mean, I like my trolls, but they do feel about $50 too expensive. And I was definitely disappointed by their limited articulation, especially after enjoying the 6" figures that came before them. They're alright though.
>>
>>6771730
I love mine. I bought the stone troll, it would be nice if they were a little cheaper, but I don't dilute myself into thinking there's not a reason for it. They're pretty great figures, and I love the contrast in size with him and my skelly group.

>Interest free loan
Where are they supposed to pull the entire cost of production from? You like to post this phrase in every thread, but short of putting themselves in ACTUAL debt I don't know where you expect them to pull the money to release a line of this size.

I get it, you want to be able to buy them on Amazon whenever you have enough GBP saved up. But that doesn't work at the scale that they sell. They need to know up front how many of each to make, and they need the funding because where the hell are they going to pull that from otherwise?

Every thread this autistic screeching from you the 4H appologist. You act like 4H is gods gift to toys. Theyre nice but certainly not the best thing on this board. The articulation and engineering as well as price and spped of production leave a lot to be desired especially since this is their 4th or 5th round at this.

Get off your high horse and get some persective. Also stop making it your life to reeee if anyone dares have anything critical to say about MLs
>>
>>6771739
First, if that's being posted in every thread, that isn't me, since i rarely come because there's usually nothing going on for long periods of time.
Generals are pretty pointless threads where hardcore fans need to always have their line up regardless of new content. Go to a regular forum if you want this type of shit.

Last and foremost, do what ever other company does: get a bank loan. Even Apple gets loans despite having hundreds of billions in cash reserves.
See also: Ori Toys, Boss Fight Studio, Mezco, MGR, and dozens of other small niche companies.

These companies also use profits from their sales to reinvest into their company by making even more products, which is why they dont need to keep begging for month for something new.

This makes me wonder if demand for Mythic Legions is so weak that 4H can't risk using their own money to make future waves.
Is the fanbase made up of mostly resellers who buy the bulk of the product?
It would explain why there's so few buyers of the trolls on /toy/ despite being ordered in enough numbers to be produced like with everything else 4H makes

>>6772094
>asking for interest free loans is how normal businesses are run.
Maybe if they fear not selling anything beyond what is preordered, which says a lot about demand.
>>
>>6772043
It's not begging if you get what you paid for in return. It's a pre-order. I don't know why that's such a challenging concept for you. You're under no obligation to purchase their goods if you have such an issue with their business model. You can even buy them on BBTS after they release, just like you seem to want.

You also have to consider that, as a small company, they need to ensure customer engagement. One of their methods of customer engagement is preorders followed by backer updates to keep people apprised of production. This ensures that there is a slow-burn hype, and they don't have to spend even MORE money marketing the things after they take out a loan and go into debt just to produce then in the first place.
>>
>>6772171
It's a pretty piss weak way to sell toys though and preorders only ensures to scare away any new fans to come into the line.
It's a blind buy every single time and then there's the year+ long wait.

Honestly, considering how poorly their previous lines sold, i guess it's too much for them to actually take any risks. Only their minotaur line sold out and everything else pretty much stayed around for years and years.
The fact that they're only doing preorders says a lot about actual demand.
It's not a way to grow a line or a fanbase. It reeks of Mattel's He-Man Club.
>>
>>6772194
>It's not a way to grow a line or a fanbase
I love the line, but 100% agree on this. It's a pretty shitty business practice if you're wanting to create a sustainable line.

Especially while BFS is on their 3rd fucking line while cranking out new molds, recolors, AND keeping things in stock.

>>6772194

>yet the figures sell out
>a line that forces you to preorder to get anything
>sells out
I guess there's the remainders, from China forcing them to pay for an even amount of numbers rounded out to the nearly 10/100s

>>6772229
Except it does.
They only produce whatever is ordered and that's basically it.
Why?

Pretty much every other company who does this continues production beyond what is ordered. They continue production because there is year round demand.

Any company would take advantage of this demand.
Instead, 4H only does preorders even just to reproduce a last wave.
We already know that 4H tried to get a loan from banks before and that they were rejected based on their numbers. So there's more hints on how demand isn't all that, especially with how they rarely sold out back before they only did preorders only.
>>
>>6772278

or does it really take them over 300 days to ship everything out from a single KS/PO?

Stop trying to make them seem more inept than they already are.

Nevermind that they could still order multiple assortments just like everyone else, instead of relying on preorders only for another year+.

>>6772342
They released that info from their first KS and why they chose to do it that way instead of the way they had been handling all their lines before.

>>
>>6772374
Considering you're the one making up these stories because you've got a hateboner for the 4H, one that has gotten EXTREMELY tiring, I think you're the one that needs to stop.

You've done this for years now, and nobody cares about what you have to say. The line is a hit, people are buying it. And you're still whining in the corner like the 4H should listen to you. Fuck off already. If you're the scalefag that's whining about them going with the larger scale? Double fuck off. You're a rotting scab.
>>
>>6772383
what larger scale? aren't they 6"?
>>
>>6772383
I'm not making anything up.
If you had been here long enough you'd know why they went to kickstarter in the first place and how they couldn't get a loan like they did before with their minotaurs, their queens, their timekeepers, their elephant/monsters and the Scarabus.

Even then, other companies have been getting loans or even paying for it out of pocket based on their sales to make their toys year round.
Again, this shows a success and allows more people to get into a line, because they don't need to wait around over a year to get anything in return.

And why are we even talking about this? oh right, because you're upset that a toy with a lot of joints is missing a lot of range of motion because they can't into engineering, which you believe can't be compared to anything else because planning the joints costs too much money or something.

BTW, still waiting to see some proof that you own the trolls or if I'm right that you're only just blindly defending htem.
>>
>>6772452
There's a poster that bitches in every 4H thread because they were going to make them 3" and then decided to do 6" because it made more financial sense...plus it's the more popular scale and ended up selling better for them. He's forever butthurt about that.

Prove it's not missing a whole mess of range of motion.
Let's see the ankles doing anything more than FLAT or being able to touch their hands together or getting 90° from their elbows.

Here's another photo of mine showing how limited the range is, especially when compared to a cheaper toy that has less articulation, yet is able to get crazy amount of motion from its joints.
>>
>>6772452
They were originally supposed to be 3.75" figures with playsets, and mounts, and all that, but they found it would cost them virtually the same amount to produce 3.75" figures as it does to produce 6" figures, so they went with 6"

Actually, they said that the cost would be too high (despite all those other 1:18 kickstarter lines having no trouble moving high numbers enough to have year round sales), not htat it would be the same, and all the HeMan collectors on their forums were losing their shit, so they had to go with 6".

4H has no idea how to market their own toys. Even with their Power Lords line from this summer where they were asking for preorders, they didn't bother to go to any of the 1:18 sites to show off their stuff. Instead, they just went to their forum and that was basically it. Only a GI Joe site bothered to report that the preorders had started.

I'm gonna swoop in defense of Rancor anon.

Here is my Stone troll next to some random figure I have as proof that I do have the figure. I am extremely disappointed in the Stone troll figure.

1. As you can see on his left elbow, the paint do scrape because the elbow sculpt is too tight.

2. The elbow bend leaves things to be desired. Again just to reiterate, we're not complaining about the lack of addition for joints. We're complaining that the elbow joint HAS BEEN made and paid for. The price of this joint is already rolled into the price point for the figure that we paid for. However it is completely ineffective. It's like you're paying extra for a car window, but the window doesn't open all the way. This harkon back to the initial problem with paint scraping, the sculpt is too tight on and badly engineered on the elbow.

3. The figure has equally inneffective ball joint on the ankles. Again this is already built in and paid for within the price point of the figure. We're complaining that the thing we paid for is inneffective.

This all would have been fine if the 4H at least show us a video with the prototype and move the joint around so you can tell the range of motion. This is what the raptor KS did with his prototype raptors. But nope. The troll always sit in a glass case with neutral static posture. Then as buyers we have ONE (1) chance to preorder blindly without knowing the range of articulation and the quality of the paint, or risk getting scalped at >200% or more pricepoint.

I'm incredibly tired with the 4H business model. A lot of 4H fans are refugees from the Mattel subscription model for MOTUC figures. They're used to overpaying their figures, paying yearly subscription fees and getting delivered a subpar figure with 1998 articulation. This is 2018, for most figures we can wait until review videos showing the articulation and paint quality on the mass produced figures.

>This is what the raptor KS did with his prototype raptors
And they're still garbage. The paint sucks, the articulation is brittle and doesn't move like it's supposed to. But I'm so glad you got to see it in motion, so you can defend a terrible feathered bullshit toy.

Very disappointing figures.

And i find it really funny that i was actually one of the few people on /toy/ that was pushing for other people to buy into them way back when they were first put up 7 years ago, because 4H takes too damn long to do anything.

Pretty much my take on this.
4H takes too much after Mattel's engineering and it's worse with 4H, because they actually have the ability to do whatever they want, but it's like the only world they know is Mattel's.

Just post anything to prove that you guys aren't just blindingly defending the trolls and can actually say anything factual.

And the thing is, I actually really like these figures. The sculpts are pretty, the pain is gorgeous, and I love the subject matter. But there's nothing wrong with acknowledging the problems with both the figures and company. I've honestly never seen the weird, dogged loyalty to a company like have on this general and 4h's board. It's so, so bizarre.

4h's complete lack of response on the issues, paint rub in 1.0, poor paint and quality control in 1.5, etc., have pretty much turned off any fondness I have for them, although I'm still willing to buy figures occasionally, but definitely not like I would if they handled things better.

I'm merely suggesting there might be ways to improve them with lower effort than scratch-building. Maybe cut back the area blocking the elbow a bit and fill it in with apoxie, and a little bit of paint. No need to throw a hissy fit.

Also they sold for 100 and were in-stock for a long time.
>>
>>6772944
Normal companies have stocks that you can buy after a figure is mass released. For a brand new sculpt, like a lot of imports I would watch a youtube review before deciding to buy a particular figure.

A video review for these figures would catch the disappointing articulation on the trolls, the paint rub issues on 1.0 figures and floppy joints on 1.5 figures.

With 4H figures instead you had 2 chances, one to PO blindly the year and a half before, and 2nd chance with severely limited stock that you have to be on your guard at a particular time and date to elbow each other online and get the figures.

I'm not sure if you noticed, but everyone who has complained about the trolls preordered their figures, which is why we have them and posted pictures as proof.

The problem is that people who don't have them are crying that we have problems with them, so they're blindly defending them anyway that they can, which is mostly through middle school type insults.

Have these 4H threads really degenerated so much that criticism isn't allowed anymore?

I was there man, it was just as bad. I'm trying to explain that the 4H is racking warehouse bills and Cornboy's dumbass excuse of being able to only ship like 10 batches everyday because that's what their dumb personal Fedex account allow them to do and they're too fucking dumb to apply for a Fedex corporate account. They have gotten better since, but still the rabid cult fans are around
>>
>>6772960
Speaking of rabid fans, anyone else weirded out by the people on the FB groups buying tens of the same figure at once? I never see anyone posting big Attleboro scenes or anything, are they all just standing in groups on shelves? Or are they all resellers?

>>
>>6772987
Dude, they can’t give people figures that aren’t made yet. The people who review them had to pre-order just like everyone else because the figures didn’t exist until they had the PO money to make them.

Life is literally a game of trade offs. If you don’t want to take a risk on something, then wait and see. But then you can’t bitch about sold out stock and paying the scalper tax. That’s literally how all of life works.
>>
>>6772994
Way to deflect and change the subject you fucking dishonest shill. We were talking about how as customers we're forced to play QC roulettes with preorder. Unlike any other mass produced figures, you cannot wait for a honest review because the figure would be out of stock by then. This business model is severely anti-customer

You're not forced to do anything you fucking whale. And it's not anti-customer in the least, everyone knows they're getting great quality with these figures. If they didn't, they wouldn't keep selling out of shit, moron.

Smaller companies BFS and Marauders task force figures can keep some year long stock. The raptor KS had open PO for 1.5 years as long as the figures are in production.
>>
>>6773012
>>6773027
Doesn’t matter what other companies do. The 4H don’t. So your options are order early and take a chance, or buy late and pay more. Those are the choices if you want these figures.
>>
>>6772963
>Speaking of rabid fans, anyone else weirded out by the people on the FB groups buying tens of the same figure at once? I never see anyone posting big Attleboro scenes or anything, are they all just standing in groups on shelves? Or are they all resellers?
I think 4H has noticed this, hence preorders only, instead of taking a risk of producing them year round.
They don't think there's enough demand and i can't blame them considering when they carted their wares around at conventions they never actually sold out until years later.

It would also explain why there's a couple of people here on /toy/ who are so quick to denounce criticism and pretend the line is devoid of flaws.
>>
>>6773014
>And it's not anti-customer in the least, everyone knows they're getting great quality with these figures

UPDATE #143
We've had some recent issues with the tightness of various joints on the Mythic Legions figures. Particularly the hip joints, ankle joints and wrist joints. Fans let us know there was an issue, we listened, and we totally agree. They're been a little too loose for our taste. Because of this we contacted the factory and had them go back in to tweak all of the joints on the existing figures to make sure everything remains tight and works smoothly.

Even your god and savior 4H acknowledge the fact. But even this is like 9 months too late because the problematic 1.5 batches already shipped. They don't have enough spare figures to do proper customer service on 1.5 batches so everyone who PO'd the 1.5 had to eat shit with floppy joints and flashing on the molds
>>
>>6773037
No. I chose the third option and plan to take my money elsewhere in the future. It's pretty easy to do.
>>
>>6773044
Good. You're not wanted at all, and they won't miss a single sale because of you.
>>
>>6773044
I should add: I have two figures preordered from Advent and if 4H starts acting like a decent company and the figures are better, the I have no problem getting more. If not, it's really no loss to me. Something will fill the same gap once they run themselves into the ground.
>>
>>6773036
And the raptors are terrible figures.

That’s totally a valid option. But then coming here and bitching about figures you don’t even buy is kinda pointless then, isn’t it? Life’s too short to waste it like this dude.

I am in fact here to discuss. I like talking toys. I like the ML figures I have. I like taking pictures of them and making dios, but they're not a company I /like/, just a fun oddity that I have a few figures from. Life is indeed too short. Certainly too short to defend the honor of a weirdly managed toy line, no? And I'm not a troll. But when every whiff of dissent is met with your rabid defense, I can see how you could think that. I'm also not the only person on this side of this conversation. You'll never believe me, but oh well.
>>
>>6773049
This is kinda the conclusion of this thread for new buyers to beware of.

4H is a very small company and they seem to have no incentive to grow. What this means is that they have extremely small leverage against chinese factories and at any moment could get fucked over in the ass. However they outsource this risk to you guys, the customer because they ask for interest free loan in term of paid to be made preorders.

When you got the product in hand, and the QC is not up to par, as a really small company run by 5 people the 4H has really slow customer service response time, but moreover very little capability to replace parts and make things right. If a whole batch of factory production like 1.5 came out floppy and not to par, there's nothing they can do because the replacement figures and parts will also be floppy.

To make things worse, there's a subset of a beaten housewife of a Stockholm Syndromed fanbase who would jump at your throat if you bring these things up, essentially shielding the 4H and retarding their company's growth. There's also a subset of a fanbase who makes enormous profit scalping the figures and take advantage of the retarded distribution model who might or might not overlap with the 4H can do no wrong fanbase, because it is in their incentive to scalp the figure with as high of a price it can be, and to make profit in scalping the figure has to be in high demand and flawless so they shout down any dissenting opinions and criticism from actual fans who paid for the figures, provide pictures and evidence of potential issues with any of the 4H production figures
>>

>>6773078
This, well put. Reminder too that 4H did in fact get fucked over by chinese factories when they stole/lost the molds for an older line. So they have been fucked and still dont have good leverage in the form of really large orders or regular production.

They'll do one last preorder for the Kickstarter 2 wave before they get in production, so that they get the full numbers and build them in one run. They'll do this preorder on their store not too far from now supposedly.

About a year ago they had their second Mythic Legions Kickstarter which featured nearly 40 new characters, including the assortment of goblins. They're just getting final test shots of the figures in now and within a few months they'll go into full production. Between now and then, they're going to have another sale similar to the last All-Star wave sale where all the figures offered during the second Kickstarter will be available for pre-order with no limits as to how many items you can buy (other then cost and shipping). The goblins, along with all the other items offered in the second Kickstarter will be up for sale for a limited time (most likely 2-3 weeks) and after which production will begin. We most likely won't see these figures for another 6 months or so though.

But before the Wave 2 Kickstarter figures are produced, the Coliseum wave >>6775523 mentioned will start shipping and there will a short, fierce, bloody "in-stock" sale for any extra figures ordered. Those sales suck, but if you are lucky you can buy a figure and have it in hand within a month. But those sales are always horrible to deal with. The amount of figures offered in that wave are much more limited, and they use the old 1.0 builds and parts, but it has some very nice new characters.

There's also a new "Ogre" Scale class of figures being designed and most likely more new(or old) figures will be released along side of them. If you haven't already, you should sign up for their news letter to get updates on when things are happening. They'll also be at NYTF happening this weekend so hopefully we get more news pretty soon.

>>6775713
I agree so hard, it was one of (but not the only) biggest problems I had with their first line of figures. The new handles aren't exactly perfect, but they are FAR superior to the atrocious MOTUC style wrist clips. I just wish they offered extra handles with the newer figures so I can get enough to go back and update all my older shields.
>>
>>6775594
>And they've got friends in high places that will help them out if sshit does go down.
Where were these friends when 1.5 figures came out bonk with floppy joints, and mold flashing all over the place?

The 4H decide to do a stone cold silence, all the way until the KS campaign is over and another extra 6 month before acknowledging the problem

Not really, people who PO'd 1.5 get fucked over. Nobody with floppy joint got a replacement figure, because the whole batch was bonk. There's nothing the 4H could do.

It gotten taken care of in the next wave, supposedly we have to take the 4H at their words but nobody knows as neither of us, nor the 4H have the mass produced copies of 2.0 or 1.75 stuff yet. There is a nonzero chance that 2.0 stuff came out bonk again, maybe the eyes were all painted googly, or the joints are frozen like the birds, or the joints are floppy like 1.5. These things has had happened multiple times.

I have to reiterate that I don't hate the figures. Even after all this I got 500 bucks in the 2.0 KS. However all of this could have been avoided if 4H get a decent overstock and not just made the figures as PO paid to be made only. Me and many anons could've avoided wasting our money on the 1.5 stuff if we could wait for a proper review, and learning that the joint quality were all terrible. Me and many other anons could've saved our money by not buying Atlus or Barbarian with paint chipping on the 1.0 if we could wait and not PO blindly. We don't like the risk being outsourced to us, the consumer.
>>
>>6777018
I got all the 1.5 figures and they're fine. So I'm sorry you think people get 'fucked over' because you have some ridiculous beef with the 4H.
>>
>>6777024
Don't take my words for it, take the 4H's own words. They acknowledge the batch has issues, were sorry about it and promised to make it better

Then it's over with. Quit crying.

>>6777052
I as a consumer could've avoid throwing my money if the 4H has better distribution method, so I don't have to PO with blind faith and actually wait for a review to make an informed decision.

>4H's current distribution method is anti consumer

Nope. You're just a whiny little bitch. And the more you claim "anti-consumer" the more you're a stupid cunt. If you have doubts, don't buy it. If you miss out, it's your fault. Sell the figures off if you're so unhappy you salty little twit.

now now, they aren't anti-consumer, because you get exactly what you paid for and they're giving you a long while to actually make your orders.
Needing to preorder isn't anti-consuerm, but it sure sucks.

It just sucks that you don't know the condition of the product. When dealing with China, it's like making a deal with a monkey paw so you gotta be as specific as possible in order to not be screwed over and they still find a way screw you over as hard as possible.
Which makes me wonder... why is 4H the one that gets screwed the hardest? Are they really that bad in choosing a factory or not checking in as often as other kickstarters? Are they penny pinching?
Considering their trolls, they do seem to not put in enough effort into planning things out.
>>
>>6777103
Just like any business, if they want to grow they can take out a loan, make these figures and have in in stock so that people can wait and make informed decisions from some early review. For the first couple of batches it's ok for KS project to have made to order PO. However they've been in this business for a long time. BFS and Marauder are able to stand on their own feet and keep stock.

BFS even made super niche product with brand new mold, the Bucky O'Hare line without necessity to preorder
>>
>>6777128
Will you fucking shut up about having anything in stock? God damn, that's never going to happen. That's not what they want to happen. You're fucking pathetic.

The 4H are successful doing what they do now.

>>6777131
>That's not what they want to happen
The only reason they don't want that to happen is that with keeping stock they are not able to outsource the risk directly onto (You)'s anymore. Why bother taking risk while you have a legion of blind fanboy to gibs interest free loan

Hi.

Troll with rancor guy here.
I've been collecting their lines for over a decade, since their minotaurs.
I was able to buy from them in person, face to face with them even, months and even years after their figures were first released until the Mythic Legions line.

When i bought the orge wave figures, they warned me in person, that certain figures weren't up to spec. I took my chance and i treated the figures i bought from their table like glass, because i knew what to expect.

I've also bought certain figures online, like the exclusive minotaurs and others, and i kept on buying them until the trolls. I really can't support blind buys like this anymore, because their output is very sketchy now. Sketchier than it's ever been and im pretty much only going to buy in person now.

Well, that's a lie, i will buy online if there's something thati really really must have, which would have been their goblins if they weren't so such cheap redecos. Basically, something brand new that looks cool enough.
>>
>>6777330

>>
>>6777330
>I took my chance and i treated the figures i bought from their table like glass, because i knew what to expect.

Then you're an idiot? I own everything of theirs from the minotaur on up. I have never had to treat anything of theirs like glass. I gave them over 700 bucks on birds and more, and yet more with Mythic Legions. Again, never once had to treat it like glass.

You're acting absolutely ridiculous.
>>
>>6777343
Loose joints, paint scraping off, plastic feeling less durable.
It's very sketchy.

Maybe I'm saying this from comparing their current stuff with other current lines, but that's just how it goes.
It doesn't fill me with confidence anymore. Their older stuff did, but i would need to take them out to see if they still hold up (definitely not the orge/elephant stuff though).

You don't come off as a collector of their lines though. You're just talk and it's nothing but blind defensive ramblings from you.

Never heard about their elephant/ogre wave? Doesn't sound like you're an actual fan if you haven't.
It's the one that they had to redo again, but they sold off all the flawed figures for years and years and years. It was on their online store too.
Pretty much every wave but the minotaurs was up there until their Raven kickstarter, but the elephant wave had the warnings about the shitty plastic.

Why, because I'm not miserable like you? Ivery never been let down by their Fantastic Exclusives, their birds, the cats, Scarabus, the ML. Shit, my rhino was from the "bad batch" and even that holds together far better than initial worries would have you believe.

I know full well what I'm getting from them.
>>
>>6777375
Wrong. There was nothing wrong with the plastic, you dumb fuck. The factory fucked the joint system up, making them come apart too easily. It had nothing to do with the 4H and everything with the Chinese factory that then stole their molds.

>>6777382
I own a bunch of these and there was plenty wrong with the plastic but you're not wrong about them falling apart.

There is plenty wrong with the plastic. I got the big elephant, tried to move the hips and it snapped right away.

Not that it matter because the skirt prevent you from having real hips articulation anyway, but still. He's just standing neutral as a statue now. Without proper hips articulation, and single ball peg on the neck might as well make the whole thing a statue and save some cost.

LOL, so if you knew, why act stupid like the bad batch didn't exist?

>I know full well what I'm getting from them.
And that's the point.
I was able to get it AFTER everyone complained, i knew what could go wrong, made plans just in case it did break.
I bought so many of their figures knowing what i was going to get because most of it i bought in person.

That's the whole point, in that i didn't go in blindly before. 4H was able to sell their figures after you could read reviews and hear about people's impressions. Hence that Bad Batch being REDONE. We didn't get that for the bad batch with the Mythic Legions, because they got your money so fuck you.
Today, it's almost ALL blind buys. It's a very shit way to sell your toys and ensures it remains sold to a small group, because only fans will spend a couple hundred bucks almost 2 years before they ever touch anything.

/toy/ didn't even exist back in 2007 when the figures were released and you expect pictures?
What kind of gross person would even keep broken toys from over a decade ago?

BTW, i bought from the bad batch and i only paid $10 for mine, because 4H advertised them as being poorly made. Mine haven't broken, because like i said, i treat it like glass.

Actually, the implication of "eating itself" is exactly what you're doing right now.
You're acting like an asshole to "traitors" who aren't interested in just circlejerking each other about how great and perfect the toys are.
Newblood ensures that people like yourself aren't the stand outs in the fanbase, because most people aren't nutters.
So great job at representing fans as being hypersensitive defensive children who blindly defends toys he doesn't even own.

And as much as I'd like to take a picture of my collection, it's harder to actually find the boxes that contains my loose figures and these were just sitting within easy reach in my closet.

I actually bought Xetheus to army build, because shock and awe, i didn't know what the build quality was going to like, so i only bought one cow exclusive. I was impressed with their articulation so at Comic Con it was actually easier to buy multiples of Xetheus. Didn't bother opening this one because i couldn't display more than a few at a time & he was forgotten about for years.
The Time Keepers i also army built, and this one i didn't like the color so much as an army builder, so i kept one in package.
As you can see, his box is signed. I had all my 4H figures signed by 4H, because they're there selling them in person and i like their work. I have the other cards in storage somewhere, all signed. Bubbles are thrown away.

I didn't have this Xetheus signed because i really didn't know who they were before and I'm not fanatical enough to carry a toy to a convention all day just to get it signed.

It sure was nice to just be able to buy these toys in person and even get some the next day after playing around with them to see how they actually are.
Sucks that you'll never experience having a choice like this and need to double down on your blind buy.

Also, this is the closest the troll can get his arms together. Very disappointing, especially since all my other giant figures can do better.

I don't care what you do, dude. But you're wrong, and you post wrong information while claiming some really creepy bullshit about the 4H. It's like you're obsessed and need to fuck off.

Which you don't actually have to do with these figures. I'm sorry you're retarded and can't control yourself though.

I want that Xetheus so bad.

>believing a guy who doesn't buy these figures and wants to pretend that they're perfect
LOL, nice try
Why would i treat them differently when so many other people had problems with them? They had so many problems that 4H used their profits from making the line to remake them and replace them.
They had so many overstock of the bad batch that it literally took them over half a decade to get rid of them.

>>6778759
Sorry, not for resale, because im going to open him up.... someday!
Just like my Gunpla and my video games and BDs and books and comics. All stock piled, for that rainy nuclear winter.

Oh are we still waving our dicks around? Cool beans.

Here's a Rammy and a few variants. I have a rhino, he was part of the bad ones, and he's 100% just fine. His legs pop out easily if I pull on them, but that has never kept him from posing.

Nothing broken.

If you want to complain about the photo qualities, be my guest, you guys want to bitch and bitch and bitch, so you can deal with bad quality photos.

Got things signed by the 4H? Cool, so do I. I have Xetheus and two of the variants opened up, but the rest are still on card, because I like them that way for now.

Another signed figure. The Rammathor figures were some of my favorites, and they all had great QC, with only the rhino having the joint flaw.

I have a number of the Scarabus figures, too. And again, no problems, no breakage.

IN FACT, I will tell you one "qc error" I had. The anubis figure I have, his thigh swivel was stuck. STUCK, stuck. I twisted that fucking thing until my hands bled, and it FINALLY cracked and moved.

And you know what? It didn't break. That's good plastic.

So, as someone who has a lot of experience with 4H and all that... Anyone worried about the QC and worried about breaking anything and not just enjoying the fucking figures needs to pop some Xanax.

Do you not agree?
Because my posts were part of a series where you can build a fanbase easier and allows everyone to get what we want, instead of going in blindly.
I mean, here you are, buying as many as you did, because you bought them in person.

Serioiusly, how cool was it buying the toys years later?

>>6778836
Yeah, I've never broken mine either, but that wasn't my point.
My point was that the first Elephant wave was completely fucked, so 4H had to remake the line, which they didn't bother to do with their Mythic Legions wave that was heavily flawed, because they already had your money.

>Do you not agree?

I really don't unfortunately. Yes, it's always nice to see what you're buying in person, and it can help with spurring on a purchase, but I bought 95% of this stuff sight unseen. I came in to the Xetheus figures laaaate, but I got lucky with them before they dried up completely.

But I knew the figures were good because of that experience, and so I had no qualms ordering future FANtastic exclusives. And I don't know what you're on about with them "already having your money" in this case, because I distinctly remember having to dish out money for most if not all of the website variants. Shit, dealing with Fwoosh and some of the others was more of a pain than anything with the Kickstarter things.

I've bought in on everything because Xetheus impressed me so much. I had no qualms giving them those many hundreds of dollars with the Kickstarter stuff because I knew the figures would be great. I wasn't disappointed (minus perhaps the birds needing ankle rockers).

They've done right by me, honestly. There's hiccups, sure, but I've always gotten the toys and been impressed in the end. I think maybe the cats not having the posability I'd like was a downer, but not enough to sour me.

Geez, you're nothing but contradictions, but that's to be expected from a hardcore fanboy.

>I don't know what you're on about with them "already having your money" in this case, because I distinctly remember having to dish out money for most if not all of the website variants
Because almost everything that they sold is preordered, minus a few hundred leftovers. With all previous lines, they were selling their toys at conventions and online for months/years afterward.

So 95% of their sales for Mythic LEgions was something that was already sunk into and they had no qualms in keeping that money, because they obviously didn't redo the wave to fix those issues for fans.
With the previous lines 40-80% was made through conventions and their website, NOT already sunk in, to be sold at a later date.
So in order to make their money, they had to redo the wave again to keep fans happy, because who would want to buy a bunch of defective toys at full price?

>I knew the figures were good because of that experience,
Yeah, same here, up til they started fucking up. So based on my negative experience, I'm not willing to go in blind anymore.
