>>6944975>silver surfer>not chromed
>>6944981i'm just happy he comes with accessories.
>>6944975One more thing I forgot to add. There is a new Marvel Select Thanos being released in July.
>>6945005Is it different from the original?
>>6945005Looks like all they did was make the gold shinier.
>>6945008I believe it's a re-release with better paint, sculpt, etc.
>>6945005Re-releasing classic Thanos? They just released a modern version of him like a month ago, if that. Damn.
>>6944981That would have been a QC disaster
>>6945005That is an old ass figure. I remember when people were buying this to use with Marvel Legends.
>>6945046yeah that one in the pic is the old one. I'm wondering if they're actually referring to pic related. It's out though. I ordered mine on Disney Store's website and even though they said it was back ordered and it wouldn't ship until the end of the month, I got an UPS tracking number over the weekend with a delivery date of Friday.
>>6944981>a pvc action figure>chromedrethink you comment then rethink your life
>>6945012>sculptThere doesn't look to be any difference, what are you seeing that's different that I'm missing?
>>6945008>>6945012It's probably just a re-release without any changes. I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure they've re-released this (as well as a few other MS figures) before.
>>6945157*in regards to sculpt, that is.
>>6945005They should’ve fixed Lady Death and added a pretty removable human faced head.
>>6945053Can you switch his head with the ML head?
>>6944975Ben When?I need to complete my F4.
>>6945202He comes with a helmeted head. Dunno if he can swap with the ML since I don't have it or the BaF shown here.
>>6945152Cast it in something else then.It could even have a chance at not having absolute garbage knees and elbows.
>>6945252Do you want those elbow and knee joints chromed too? Because that would be really, really great.I'm being sarcastic. It would be shit.
>>6945181Is death even included this time? Looks like less stuff for the same price.
is this wave going to be impossible to find?
>>6945290I hope not. I at least was able to get Ant Man and Wasp pre-ordered. I only kinda want Thor. I also have the Teen Groot 3-pack pre-ordered but I'm debating getting the single release Thor too for Stormbreaker and because that shot of him, Rocket, and Groot, porting to earth and smashing Thanos' army was fucking awesome.
>>6945290No. In 6 months they will be all over the place.
>>6945290I don't think it will be impossible but it might be a little harder to get right now. There's also the question of if its even technically out right now. Some stores put stuff out early which is why some waves seem impossible to find, then suddenly are everywhere after you've already managed to get the whole wave for a mark up from a third party seller online.
>>6945296>>6945298>>6945304When do they come out?Widow and Thor are the only ones that interest me at the moment.The new production photos look way better than the teaser shots they released earlier. Especially for Widow
>>6945315those teaser glams they do are horrible
>>6945315"Officially" that wave comes out in June. They'll show up here and there early, and will probably be clogging shelves by July-August.
Bought my first figurine for myselfhow did I do?only started because I have been buying my nephew's random marvel legends and was getting massive nostalgia bombs of the 90s marvel cartoons when I saw some X-Men figures. main aim is to get the 90s style X-Men and maybe different variations of cyclops (who was my fav as a kid)think it's do able? and how do you guys limit yourself so it doesn't get out of handright now I'm thinking of getting that whole apocalypse baf set lol
>>6945400I also bought this cos I thought it looked cool but I'll probably give it to my nephew since I don't know much about deadpooldoes anyone know if DC have a similar range to the marvel legends range in terms of scale and style.I'm thinking of getting my brother's son marvel shit and my sisters son DC cral
>>6945406DC has a line labeled "Multiverse" that's to scale with marvel stuff, but not as articulated.Only one, I can think of that's on par with Hasbro's Marvel articulation is Blue Beetle.But that said, some of DC line isn't bad.
>>6945290Just found a fresh case on pegs at wally world in the Atlanta area. Antman and Wasp are double packed. Saw a case of Deadpool, but have the enitre line already.
>>6944981Don't you like swirley silver plastic?
>>6945486>>6945406DC Collectibles made better figures and depending on the figure, they're in scale or close to it, what with Hasbro's MLs suffering from scalecreep and this line being new.Figures like this Batman is actually supposed to be Dick Grayson's design, and it is to scale because it is Dick, but who wants a manlet Batman?Anyway, Mattel's DCUC crap is actually really off scale as well, as theyre actually bigger than MLs. Like, in width too. Basically every DCUC is Superman cosplaying as different characters.
>>6945564Those torsos look off, like streched.
>>6945847Great, now that's bugging me too.I think it looks off because of the upper torso being wider than the lower part. Never really noticed it before, but i guess it's there and not that noticeable when not seen in a grid like that, which is why Batdick doesn't look like he has that issue with his cape being the background instead of teh grid.
>>6945847>>6945857The fuckery probably comes from two different ab crunches. What the fuck.
I'm looking to use ML figures as golems/summons/giants/enemies for my 1/18 fantasy hacks figures.Which one works best? A repaint of the new thing figure would make for an amazing golem
>>6944981There would be no way to break up the chrome at the joints without it looking horrible. And keeping the joints chrome would guarantee chipping even from careful posing, even if you wore gloves and shit .
>>6945157They did. The first time he had a red glow around his eyes (which made it look like he was blushing) while the second time omitted that.
>>6945400>maybe different variations of cyclops (who was my fav as a kid)The price for Cyclops aint coming down anytime soon, so might as well bite the bullet and snatch him. If you give up on the hobby you can always sell him and people would pay extra
>>6945053>>6945230That face sculpt makes him look like a Jamie Hewlett character.
>>6945290Widow was double packed in a revision of Winter Soldier wave 2 and she was still impossible to find. I don't see the Infinity War version ever hitting shelves around here.
>>6945282I think that's a pic of the original release version, but death is just obscured in the picture. See the twisty tie wrapped around something black underneath the outstretched Infinity Gauntlet hand? That's her.
>>6945005Why is he blushing so much?
>>6944975if thing is turning out as the pic does, then damn that's the best looking hasbergers marvel legends release
>>6945564>>6945847>>6945857proportion is really bad despite the nice sculpt on the individual parts... the thighs are too long... the arms are ok if they were on a different figure... but in this case the thigh + leg being really long + the torso being also extra long... these are really weirdly proportioned figures.
>>6945406How come this Deadpool only comes with 2 swords, when the last one came with a shitload of weapons?
>>6945962fuck off because you never had the toybiz one
>>6945959The exclusives definitely have a better budget than usual.
>>6945872I'd look into Marvel Select. Groot, Abomination, Destroyer, movie Lizard, etc.
>>6945872>Golem >>6944178Can't get any better
>>6944975Wish i could preorder ben from... well, anybody really. Walgreens is worthless in my area
>>6946001Just have someone here middleman one to you
>>6946001Watch Walgreens' site for when it's for sale there, buy it from there, and then have it shipped to the store closet to you.
How's the Figuarts Homecoming Spider-Man? I've got some Marvel Figuarts (Doctor Strange and Star-Lord) and don't have any problems with how they look or feel, but the pics I've seen of Spidey aren't convincing me. Worth it or no?
>>6945400i cant find this guy. i just need him because MvC
>>6945962Even without all those accessories the Deadpool in that pic is still a better figure. Not that the other one is bad. The other one is just much better.
>>6946028It's an okay figure. No major flaws, it's pretty much what you'd expect. Although, I kinda wish I had bought the Mafex figure for the brighter colors and the magnet feet.
>>6945959>>6945864The proportions are fine, unless you have a problem with MLs and practically every superhero line?It's only the joints that make it look weird.
>>6946029That's not his MvC2 costume, though. The original Toybiz ML Series 6 figure comes closest.
>>6944981Just paint it, like ill end up doing once i pick it up
>>6945942you can also see her face peeking over his hand
We're already in mid-May. Does Cap come with his shield/s or not?And while we're on the topic any new promo shots for the other figures?
>>6946207The only thing we've got is his description on most sites he's available on mentions optional parts in addition to the alternate hands we know he comes with. I'd assume that means the shields, but we haven't been shown anything yet and at this rate we might not until people start getting him in-hand.
>>6946207>>6946256Actually correction to this post, looking at the promo photos we don't even know what alt hands he comes with. Every image we have of him is just with the fists.
Rumored second ML Vintage wave isAnt-ManWaspBlack PantherVisionHawkeyeScarlet SpiderSounds a bit too good to be true to me, but they'd probably all be so half assed they might as well not have bothered. But I am aching for updated classic Avengers
>>6945290Probably.I still have not seen Lizard Wave or Deadpool wave anywhere.
>>6945304> Buying marked up reseller toysYou are part of the problem anon.
>>6946306I lucked out on Deadpool and found it at a TRU (woo, discount) but haven't seen one figure anywhere of the Lizard wave. I'm resorting to Amazon for that. I just hope Mysterio goes down in price.
>>6946374I finally caved and bought Gwenpoole on Amazon, since she's like the only one under stupid 2x pricing.I kind of wanted Lizard and a lot of the figures int he wave looked like ones I would like, but not for mark up.
>>6945952he's packed in a box with his waifu, anon. who wouldn't blush?
>>6944975Any other pics of Thing yet?
>>6946128>The proportions are fine, unless you have a problem with MLs and practically every superhero line?unless that DC toy line is EVERY SUPERHERO line, doesn't seem to be the case with me. what's wrong with you though? did your dying mother make this line as her last act on earth or something?
>>6946128>It's only the joints that make it look weird.Which is what I literally said my problem was here >>6945864
>>6946476I'm not really even a fan of F4 (or not a fan, I just haven't really read much of them) but that is a damn good looking figure. And it's about time Thing got a good one.
Took forever, but the Symbiote Spidey i got on Black Friday finally arrived, what a nice surprise to receive the box today!On a side note, i finally got to watch Infinity War, can't fucking believe the only SHF i pre-ordered was fucking Peter Quill out of everyone, that fucking idiot, goddamnit... Is there any other place besides amiami and HL jp from where i can still pre-order Black Widow and Dr. Strange?
>>6946476I feel like Ragnarok is going to make Ben here way harder to find. Every customizer is gonna make a Korg from him.
>>6946591Yo, where's that sweet balcony from?
>>6946476The real test is whether or not it looks like shit in terms of size. If it's bigger than 6 inches, it's a failure.
>>6946610Looks like it's from a movie line that came out before you were born.
>>6946607Hasbro will make one eventually. They don't spend money on new molds without it being reusable for other figures. Even MCU figure molds get reused for comic characters.
>>6946610Anon >>6946637 is right, it's from the first Raimi Spidey Movie, i never really used it for Mary Jane.
>>6946634>If its bigger than 6 inches, it's a failureIsn't Ben traditionally bigger than most normal heroes?
>>6946657Oh wow, this pic is awesome
>>6946651What is that?
>>6946660No, Ben historically has been 5'11-6' in rocky form. It was an important character feature to play up during his famous classic romps with the Hulk, who was often portrayed at the time as roughly 7'. Then the late 90s and 00s came and that went out the window because consistent characterization is a lost art.
>>6946634He's about the size of the BAF Thanos.
>>6946688So, it's shit. Might as well be a Select.
>>6946701>So, it's shit.I mean, it's not. But okay.
>>6946704It's certainly out of scale, assuming >>6946688 is right. It would be like having a 7 inch Spidey and saying "eh, good enough."
>>6946711Also assuming he's right,>thing was short before the 90s>isn't short anymoreI don't see the problem.
>>6946721Official canon height in modern 616 is 6 feet.>http://marvel.com/universe/Thing_(Benjamin_Grimm)That's a fuck up on Hasbro's part if he's too big.
>>6946591It's a smaller shop but I ordered Strange from Toyco. I just got an email from them listing all the Infinity War SHFs as pre orders so you should be able to snag him. Never used there site before but judging from their Facebook page they look pretty legit. Seems to be a mom and pop shop based in California.
>>6946563Dude, i just showed a comparison between how two figures from two different lines have near identical proportions.Here's another comparison with two different companies. Again, it's well in line with other lines. Stop bullshitting or get your eyes checked.
>>6946639funny, i remember watching planet hulk for the first time and i thought The Thing was there
>>6946284no thor? hopefully next time
>>6946284Damn no villains. Was hoping for a new Kang.
>>6946284Wasn't Hawkeye s massive shelfwarmer last time?
>>6946651>thanos makes the avemgers relive their toughest fights>cap fights iron-thanos
>>6947024I still see him at stores sometimes. Though Im very much interested in a 6 inch classic hawkeye. I didn't want metal arm version. I'll pick him up, and hopefully he has decent accessories. I like the 3.75 version pretty well.
>>6946651>when the most expensive action figure company on the planet can't resist doing a toy-original design to reuse a mold, just like some $5 superhero toyline from the 90's.
>>6946639Doesn't change the fact that customizers will still make their own before the official one comes out.
>>6946651Why does this look like a bad custom?Looks like it has fish tank gems glued on it's fists.
what are the best stands for legends figures (the little disc ones for the feet pegholes to clarity)
>>6945005I bought this on impulse when it became rare at some unexpectedly closing store.i hate its stupid round head
is there no 1/12 deadpool movie version?why?its been out like 3 years
>>6947227Because it was shit?
>>6947227They don't make action figures for Fox movies, Marvel/Disney doesn't let anyone have those toy rights. If the Disney acquisition of 21st Century Fox ends up being finalized we could see something eventually.
>>6947236Movies being good are hardly a reason not to make toys, >>6947257 explanation is why.
>>6947236it wasnt but okay m8
>>6946651i spat my drink out this is so fucking stupid
based on previous mezco releases, how do you think thor will turn out? will the articulation be limited by the cloth/leather goods? will the head and hands be easy to switch out? how useless will the stand be? will it break if you so much as look at it wrong?
>>6947291What is that from?
>>6947257That doesn't make any sense considering Fox can't and won't see a cent of any merch sales.
>>6947291Firstly, uh, yeah, that was not the accessory i was expecting, secondly:>large weapons enhance the depiction of action figurelol, what?I guess that's a poor translation to "enlarged and enhanced picture of the action figure's weapon", but hell, that sounds hilarious, i can totally see an asian porn cover saying that.
>>6947291>tfw this is the closest we'll get to getting a Hot Toys of any of the Black Order.
>>6947291I mean I guess he did very briefly have Corvus Glaive's spear, but that's an odd accessory choice.Are we getting this in addition to or instead of his shields?
>>6947306Whether it makes sense or not, that's the way it is. There was a period where they were barely even making comic X-Men/Fantastic Four figures because they didn't have the film rights.
>find the eh...(?) wave, the one with mysterio who gives a shit about anyone else in the wave>sold out>no mysterioFuck.
>>6947291I didn't want the shields anyway
>>6947291>Iconic Uh, what?
>>6947309it hurtsa full set would have been incredible, but i would've settled for my favorite, proxy
>>6946637Cultural appropriation! But at least I knoe it's official movie merchandise.
>Lizard wave starts appearing in KY>It's nothing but Spiderwoman and that Gwenpool that will be obsolete in a few monthsI hate this fucking line and it's awful distribution so goddamn much.
>>6946651That face seems too big. Like the venom head situation
Anyone have an opinion on these things? I'm especially interested in the Doctor Strange Fig.
>>6947306I think they consider it promotion, so toys would be promoting the Fox movies. Either way, the last time they made toys specifically for one of the Fox movies was X-Men Origins. They had some tie-in toys for The Wolverine but none of them actually based on the movie itself.
>>6947365Dude, literally everyone from that wave but Mysterio is MSRP or lower on Amazon. And even he's less than $40, which, if you were an X-Men fan who missed Cyclops on the Warlock wave, you'd know is maybe the best you're gonna get if you want New and in the package.
>>6947425>everyone from that wave but MysterioYou know that this isn't about them.Anyway I will never pay more than $25 on a Marvel Legends so I will just have to accept not having a domehead in my collection unless I find a deal.
>>6947365>>6947425>>6947429That's very frustrating, Mysterio was one of my favorite villains as a kid, i was excited as hell when they annouced the figure! Now i can't find it anywhere to import from and most of the stores in my own country seem to have just skipped the wave, it's so annoying, i'll probably have to play premium for him...
>>6947374That's not a toy
>>6947309Corvus has already been shown.
>>6947291is that dAvid Schwimmer?
Anyone who got the Three-Pack Thor from IW can take a pic of it next to one of the SHF Avengers (not necessarily IW Avengers)?I'm guessing Thor will be too tall side by side, but maybe some perspective play can make it work?
>>6947419>>6947306Movie studios will get merch sales because they're using copywrited designs made especially for the movies. It's called "royalty fees"So even PAramount got royalties from the movie GI Joe toys despite Hasbro owning all the rights.Also, this is why Azrael toys didn't really exist ever since Joe Quesadilla started his mocking of DC as EiC at Marvel.
>>6947291Welp, guess ill wait for the avengers suit after infinity war 2: return of the ooze
>>6947477I don't have any Thor figures but I've got some of the IW Marvel Legends and SHF. The SHF are noticeably smaller when they're side-by-side. Even ML IW Scarlet Witch is taller than SHF IW Dr. Strange and Star Lord. ML Vision towers over them so I'd imagine Thor would be even bigger.
>>6947495Actually is Avengers: The Final Chapter
>>6947499Damn, the IW Thors looks so much better than the other SHF Thors (imho of course). I guess i'll have to chose between Cool-but-not-in-scale-Thor and In-scale-but-not-so-cool-Thor...
>>6947283I have 3 one:12 figures and they are all great. Pose-ability: Mild limitation if the character wears a jacket otherwise fabric tends to stretch a bit. Thor only looks to have cloth pants also.Part-swapping: A non-issue with all 3 of my figures. The pieces had no issues switching.Stands: Just as sturdy as any sh figuart or figma standDurability: They are sturdy figures. Think Hot Toys, but smaller. Hot Toys are big/chunky/tough figures for being high-end collectibles and you pay for every bit of it.Quality: I would say expect to be impressed especially if it's your first one
>>6947291They're really doing this new cap no favours, are they?
New to this toy collecting stuff.what's a good site to see what's going to be coming out so I know how to plan my purchases. and how do you guys limit yourself because I feel this can get really autistic and out of hand with wanting to complete the build a figures.what suit is this magneto from? and the mohawk storm in the same set. I've never seen them before.oh and what do girls think when they find out you collect toys and stuff. does it come off as being pretty gay
>>6947723another thing, how much do you need to know about a characters lore and shit to feel like you "deserve" owning it.is it considered poser to own figures purely because you think it looks cool even though you don't even know what their story is or where they are from
>>6945962Because it’s based on New Mutants/early X-Force Deadpool, back when he was less a memelord and more ninja Spider-Man-esque.
>>6947291Did the X Files get a tacticool remake? What am I missing here?
>>6947723Are you paying for these with your own money?
>>6947291I literally don't remember that weapon in the movie at all.
>>6946760Stay mad and in denial. Figures of different heights with shoulders at different points, necks of different lengths, thighs and calves of different sizes, despite being similar... Superhero toys from different companies apparently are all the same proportion so anyone who likes one line can't criticize the other..? Hilarious how someone who can't spot proportions actually get so mad about someone criticizing ONE line and accuse others of hating EVERY superhero toy line.What's wrong with you man? I mean I know this is 4chan and all but damn, you sound like a really unstable person.
Finally got Cable. Really wish they gave him two gun holding hands instead of doing the ToyBiz homage thing with his left hand.
>>6947742yeah why?I've quit smoking so I've been having some extra disposable income I am not used to yet
>>6947723>>6947727That's the suit Magneto started wearing when everything relaunched after Secret Wars, when he started leading the X-Men.And the Storm figure from that wave is based on her 80's look when they scrapped her old design and made her look punk.It depends on the girl, but a lot of them are going to think it's weird. It will definitely be a dealbreaker for some, but if a harmless hobby is enough to scare someone off then you're not missing out on much.As for knowing the lore and whether you "deserve" to own a figure, that really depends on how you feel. For the most part nobody else cares how or why you collect what you do.>>6947744It's Corvus Glaive's spear, but there's no detailing or paint, and it's actually not a very accurate interpretation of it overall.
>>6947761there you go. It's your money. If it's not creating a hardship for you then there's no reason to avoid buying a toy you're interested in. You need no other justification than that.
>>6947562well shit, i guess i'm preordering thor and hulk
>>6947727One of the most purely /toy/ things to do is buying a toy for the toy itself.
>>6947723>does it come off as being pretty gayMost girls i know find my toy collection to be "geeky and interesting", my gf even gives me figures as gifts from time to time, never had a problem with that.With that said, A: i only really talk about It with people who like the topic, other people just know about it, you don't tell everything about your favorite band to someone who doesn't like that genre, do you?And B: if someone has a problem with stuff i like i'm always open to discuss it, hell , maybe they will have a point, but If it's a deal breaker for them, i probably don't want a relationship with them either.
>>6947751>so used to Hasbro cheaping out by redecoing the same bodies he forgot that people can have different buildsSpider-Man has tiny traps. Does he even lift?At this point you're just nitpicking, because all toylines will have small variations even of the same characters/actors, complete with different builds even.
>>6947291So Corvus SHF in the future without his glaive. If you don't pick this cap up now for the galive, fuck you.
>>6947723>gayAs long as you don't collect things from popular girl's franchises you should be good on that front.I have multiple muscle men and lewd robot traps displayed and nobody seems bothered by those but when I briefly got into Monster High Megablox my friends seemed completely flabbergasted since that is a "girl's line">>6947727Just grab what you like.I would suggest doing a little research before you buy an established character though since you might end up hating the source and ruining the figure for yourself.
>>6947939one of my exes used to buy me toys all the time, but she was always nagging me for having them and basically wanted to get rid of them.She basically only saw a couple of shelves worth of toys too, yet i had so much shit in the closets in various rooms. If she knew what was in those boxes, she'd probably have made an ultimatum.
>>6947723I live with my girlfriend and my entire home office is decked out in toys (although I take care in decorating, not just shelves full of clusterfuck). She's just glad I have a hobby that she doesn't have to be involved with.
>>6947291I guess I'll pick up a Marvel Legends Captain America for the shield
>>6947291Hasbro is doing better faces than Bandai is these days.
>>6948201>these daysThey always didAlso >implying Bandai has ever gotten a face rightMaybe old man Darth Vader, since his face is mostly hidden and people don't even know who the actor is, so it doesn't matter if its right, just close?
>>6948157>basically wanted to get rid of themThat's a shame, my ex too didn't cared much for my toys, but she avoided arguing about them, i guess it was a "not my money, not my problem" kind of deal.>i had so much shit in the closets in various roomsI know that feel, i too have skeletons in the closet.
>>6948201>>6948208Now that a debate that will amount to nothing and cause people to shit all over the thread...
>>6948220>implying there's anything to debateIt's like arguing that the sun isn't bright.>ib4 butthurt people who spent too much on their toys need to defend their purchase, which they'll replace when something actually good comes along from their favorite brand
>>6946651This is so stupid, I love it
>>6948201Have you not seen the Marvel Legends Infinity War Cap? The Figuarts isn't great but it's definitely better.
>>6948233>X by brand X is better than X by brand Y>"accidently" posts older and inferior X by brand X version when could post newer and better X by brand X version>"inb4" in the same postuhuh, ok.
>>6948208Hasbros sculpts have always been pretty spot on. It's the paint application where things get dicey. Now that they're using printing tech for faces they look amazing. I was comparing AoU Thor to Ragnarok Loki and the difference is night and day especially if you look at the eyes.
>>6947369I don't know what you're talking about
How does the ML Rocket scales with the SHF MCU figures? Too big?
>>6948248Die in a fire
>>6948243Not even slightly.
>>6948245>older inferiorthose sculpts are near perfect though.Just because newer figures look even better doesn't mean they're bad.
I just picked up the ML IW Captain America for the shield like >>6948192 but what's the deal with the alternate hands? Shouldn't one of them have a glove and one of them be a bare fist? They're both bare
>>6948233I love the likeness
>>6948316It's crazy how much better the new one is
>>6948243>Have you not seen the Marvel Legends Infinity War Cap? The Figuarts isn't great but it's definitely better.>BETTER
>>6948316The photo real printing has changed ML for the better. It's proved there's legit good sculpts below the paint, and shows what a decent paint job can do.
>>6948318That one is mispainted. Post a pic of the SHF that close and compare.
>>6948316>most everyone liked that likeness>not good anymore becauseIt's pretty nutty how people no longer like things because something new came along.Yeah, the new stuff is improved, but it doesn't make the old one bad.
>>6948325>>6948318here you go
>>6948337Great paint but the sculpt looks off to me...
>>6948331That's how things work, enough people get used to better quality and the older, not so good version starts not being considered acceptable anymore...People used to like using the internet in the 90's, ask around how many are willing to use that nowadays.
>>6948331Paint the old one well and I think it would look really nice.
>>6948331You seriously can't tell me that you see the likeness of Chris Patt in that figure? If ML sells it as a comic version, okay, but it supposed to be the film version.
>>6948331I think he's being sarcastic, I don't remember anyone saying that was good when it came out. There were a lot of comments about "wow, they're finally getting the faces right" around silk/abomination wave scarlet witch, but the big reactions to the gotg stuff was about the gummy limbs and how bad that head was.
>>6948316>>6948317I don't see the problem.
>>6947291>>6948318Both fuck it.
>>6946651Who's face is that supposed to be?
>>6948360I dont know what alternate universe you're posting from, but in the mainline universe everyone pretty much loved Star Lord.The worst was that people had to pick from the pegs the better eyes.
>>6947291That's like a comic version of the glaive. Didn't proxima Midnight's glaive have forks at the end of it?
>>6948300Cap had two gloves in the movie, all his hands should be gloved.
>>6948393Because they were working off early shots. That's why all the Infinity War figures were wrong or just a little off like Proxima.
>>6948394No promotional material for the movie ever had Cap with one glove. Hasbro goofed.
>>6948347I had uncapped cable broadband speeds in 1998.I was internet gaming already.There were thousands of internet communities and belonged to a great many good ones.Sharing opinions was far more civil.Probably the only thing better today than it was yesterdecades ago was videos weren't a thing, thanks to bandwidth and hosting being super expensive. However, music was super easy to find.Basically, there's no real big changes, except all the smaller sites shut down and everyone only uses the major sites now.Maybe in your shit country or state, it was worse back then, but here it was great.But that's moot, since good shit still holds up, except for some kids who just dislike things because they're old.Good sculpts were always praised and didn't really need paint, because the detail stood out all by themselves. Hasbro got sloppy with the eyes sometime in 2012 or 2013, and that basically ruined a lot of great figures.
>>6948401Are you this fucking dense? You do know Hasbro works off shit that doesn't get released to the public, right? And sure not before the movie is out.
>>6948420Did someone mention that Zuvio was going to be the surprise hit character of TFA?
>>6948392I think that's supposed to be Corvus Glaive's spear but it looks like it's missing a lot of detail
>>6945053Just got him. People who said he has worse hips than the BAF that was re-released single recently are nuts. I don't think they understand how bad the Legend's hips are. It's true that this figure's torso joint hardly had anything but side to side movement though.
>>6948118>the Corvus SHF comes with Cap’s shields
>>6948443>>6948118>when japan decides to get in on the BAF game, but it's just playing hot potato with accessories
>>6947764I thought his spear had mechanical parts and could change shape to reflect Vision's beam and shit. This just looks like a solid gold spear with no mechanical features.
>>6948248The shitty Eddie Brock head is why I spent $35 on the older Venom.
>>6948432It's one sided and solid gold, it looks just like the comic version of his spear. How does bandai keep fucking up with this line?
>>6948488Bandai is just being Bandai.They've never been good at getting the details right.
>>6948501>Implying another company make 1/12 figures right
>>6948511>implying they don't
>>6948111Which cap is the left one?
>>6948535Captain America NOW! version.Not sure what wave he's from.
>>6948535>>6948540Mandroid wave. He's pretty alright.
>>6948477as opposed to waiting for it to actually release and then buying the original when the price drops?
>>6948526why hasn't Mezco announced any Infinity War figures?
>>6948569They're dying off.
I realize the paint, build quality, and articulation are different, but how do the Legends figures scale with Figurarts? I've got a few Bandai figures, but I wanted to fill in some gaps with the marvel legends versions of figures they don't make
>>6948582Pretty well of my Rey Figuarts and Black Series Kylo Ren are anything to go buy.
>>6948541I found him too small for comic Cap, which was a shame because it was an otherwise decent figure.Every copy I ever saw had an issue with paint rub on the ab crunch so I never displayed him. I actually ended up using his lower legs to replace Netflix series Blade's.
>>6948407I say>enough people get used to somethingAnd you go with>Maybe in your shithole, here It was already good!!!It's like you want to prove my point or something, did too much gaming 1998 made you unlearn how to read or do you just get blind mad when people say stuff you like isn't good today because there's are better options?Guess which GotG figures are worth more today, 1998 gaming boy.
>>6948582Figuarts are invariably smaller, thinner and shorter.They do not scale well.They can't even really pass for teens considering how small their heads are, which are usually disproportionately small even for their own bodies.
>>6948390>people had to pick from the pegs the better eyes.Anon's Lamborghini of the past, ladies and gentlemen
>>6948614Actually that seems like it could work on a dynamic pose.
>>6948610Point is that the internet really hasn't changed much since then. Pretty much the biggest change was smartphones making everyone connected 24/7, but the internet itself is mostly just interchangable services that has changed little, if a bit more restrictive.But you wouldn't understand, since oyu're just a kid who wasn't around back then and can't handle not being able to Like everything for everyone to know about it on your Twitter.Sucks for you that your undeveloped country/state that barely entered 1990s internet quality, which to make the proper analogy is like comparing a Mattel figure to Hasbro's efforts. Completely different ballpark because of your substandard third world quality life.>Guess which GotG figures are worth more todayWhat a great popularity fallacy, especially considering you can get the best painted star Lord for $15 on clearance at Targets with Ego.pic of how old shit is still great and actually better.>>6948615>implying people still don't need to find the ones without bad paint apps>IWcaptainamerica.jpg
>>6948635lol, you can wall-text all you want, recent GotG figures look far better and you liking the old ones won't change it.
>>6948642who said the new one isn't good? I sure didn't.Just some third worlder kid who thinks because something is new or features more, that automatically means the past ones were bad.
>>6948652>something being far better doen't mean something is far worseIt's because both are from Hasbro, isn't it?
I wonder if Revo Deadpool's pistols can work with him. Wish I owned a couple of figures with revolvers.
>>6948248This is my favorite meme
>>6948656I mean, i get why third worlders like you will automatically prefer new things, because your old life was shit, but for those of us in the first world, we can look fondly back on the older stuff and think they're still quite good.if not better, considering how most companies have been cheaping out since third worlders like yourselves are asking for more money ot make our toys.
>>6948582I'd classify them as forgivable. They're definitely smaller than Legends, noticeably so when standing side by side as you can see with >>6948614 But it gets harder to notice the size differences when they're posed and not right next to each other in a display. And of course you can fudge the scale a bit for certain characters. Someone like Thor might look strange at the smaller figuarts scale, but characters like Strange and Spidey probably aren't going to be noticeably out of place standing next to beefier Legends characters.
>>6948652The first GotG wave was easily the worst in terms of quality that Hasbro has ever released and I'm amazed there's someone out there that would defend anything but Groot.
>>6948657I've been seeing this guy at Dollarama for $4 CDN (along with Diablo and Rick Flagg from Suicide Squad wave). I've never seen 6" figures there. We rarely get them at Marshall's or other discount stores either. Would be funny to see Marvel Legends end up there. Pretty good deal for customisers and parts.
>>6948689Seriously, where's this hate coming from?/toy/ was in love with that wave when it came out.
>>6948679lol, as if i gave a fuck, you "offenses" are just as good as your reasons to defend shitty looking toys.
>>6948683Figuarts Dr Strange is a tiny little man
>>6948689he is just mad that >>6948245 pointed his attempt at a brand war turned against his shitty looking figures.
>>6948692>clogging clearance stores because the actor who plays him is a tremendous asshole
Imho pic related is still one of the best looking MCU collections around here, Anon really knows how to pose his figures and to match the size of the right characters from ML and SHF.
>>6948723It's too bright.Too much colored plastic making it look cheap, like Mattel stuff. Not enough paint.
>>6948702Everybody had problems with the plastic used for that wave.
>>6948734Must have been not much of a problem if people kept on recommending the figures afterward. Going through the archive brings up next to nothing, except positive recommendations for them in 2015, which is the earliest the archive goes to.Can't believe it's been four years since GotG.
>>6948733Do you really think so?Show us your collection.
are there any stands you can buy for the 12" Marvel Legends?
>>6948723Love that Black Panther pose.
>>6948723>have almost the same collection>try to pose my figures like this but without stands>one falls and kamikazes three othersI really gotta buy some decent stands
>>6948739Not really a fan of clean plastic stuff like that.Looks cheap.Real paint diffuses light like more realistically and creates shadows without looking cartoony like matte plastics.Fact of life.And pic of some stuff i have on display in my office. PRetty extreme in terms of paint, but whatever.The Jaeger is basically an unpainted model kit, but it was only $20. I usually stay way from the other RD because of their cheap looks and build models instead.
>>6948318I was saying the figuarts was better you dolt
>>6948569I'm not super into One:12s but if they made an MCU cap that looked as good as their Thor does it would be a day one pre-order
>>6948318>CESAR IS HOME
>>6948744just get a shit ton of the bootleg tamashii stands
>>6948744I know that feel, had the exact same problem, eventually got three bootleg tamashii stands, they are alright and work for most of my stuff, but hinges without screws got a little loose.Recently being thinking of those Neca stands, they seem pretty sturdy holding those big and heavy Predators, i bet they wouldn't even tremble with Marvel Legends and SHF.
>>6948768The NECA stands are suuuuper useful. And they are indeed sturdy. I use those and some of the Tamashii act 4 stands for my Spider-Mans and the like.
>>6947374Looks pretty neat, depending on how much it is.
>>6948716I have the set, he can't even properly hold his guns, at least not mine.
Almost time for undisputed best carnage
>>6948773Good to know, i think i'll import a few.Do you think the BBTS price for it is alright?
Hot Toys Nebula when?
>>6948822>undisputed best carnageOnly to basement dwellers like you.
>MLpoorfag getting dabbed onCan't stop the future boyo
>>6946028Go for the mafex, the figuarts one has abysmal shoulder joints and that really kills a lot of posing options. Also his proportions and head shape make him look like an alien compared to the mafex.
>>6946028I have the SHF one (pic here >>6946657) and really like it, specially for action poses.With that said, i do think the Mafex one looks better based on reviews online.
Would a matte black work for repainting a Titus BaF leg into one for Space Venom? I'm trying to figure out what paint to buy/use. And would a standard white work, or is it a different shade/kind?
>>6948822I know you're just trying to start some shit but his fully tendrilled mode is brutal. You can really feel the rage.
>>6948822I've been a Revoltech hater in the past (and I still thing the Spidey is absolute shit) but goddamm I can't wait for that beauty.
>>6948822Every symbiote should come with a shit lot of tendrils
>>6948752>buys threeA meme toys>likes borderlands>reddit spacingah, you are "motherfucker"
>>6948916>liking common things that have been talked about on /toy/ since all these lines existed = being from some other placeis it summer already? Fucking newfags need to go back where they came from, especially since you think a common style of posting that's been around since telegraphs comes from that place you came from.Toys should have better paint jobs if they're going to cost $50 fucking bucks or more. Clean colored plastic is for Hasbro and Mattel tier toys.I miss Toy Biz. Fucking top tier paint jobs almost always for the price of Hasbro figures.
>>6948994are you subjectanon?
>really want toys from Ragnarok>they're either all garbage or too expensive
>>6949015If I know about any cheap Ragnarok figures, I’m going to assume you dislike them. And if you dislike the legends, I’m going to assume *any* other Ragnarok figure is out of your price range
What do you guys think of my MCU collection so far? I've got Falcon on the way, found him for like $25 online, the Vision Scarlett Witch two pack on pre order since all the TRUs around me closed, and some infinity war guys coming. Oh yeah and I pre ordered SHF Dr Strange since I don't like the MLs cloak. I hope to get him soon. What do you guys think so far?
>>6948710>Those gorilla arms on the MLIs any kind of illusion or magic trick?
>>6949056Not bad, dude! Which one is your favorite so far?
>>6949059They don't look bad when they're properly posed. The ML MCU Doctor Strange is an alright figure, especially considering the figuarts one is tiny.
>>6948822Holy shit, I'm most certainly grabbing this. The legends Carnage certainly leaves something to be desired.
>>6948754Yeah, I noticed but it was too late for delete, sorry.
>>6948723What Ghost Rider is that?
>>6949056Since there's at least 2/3 figures that exist for each MCU character (or in Iron Man & Cap's case, like 10 each), it's always fun to see which combos people have for their own MCU collections.>Civil War Rhodey>Battle Damaged Cap & Iron Man>AoU Black Widow>Civil War Spidey>2018 Black PantherPretty fun, anon. Keep it up!
>>6948723Anyone have the updated pic with vision?
>>6949101Damn. Looks nice. I wish figuarts would be some figures for the Netflix characters sometime.
>>6949056I'm really glad they're improving their faces lately. We desperately need a new Clint, Loki, and Thor since they don't have any better import alternatives. Hoping they do a new figure of Loki's Avengers design with the ten years series. Also you should grab Starlord since the Ego two-pack is on clearance pretty much everywhere.
>>6949103Don't know about his netflix appearance, but I'm loving that Mafex randomly chose to do Gwenpool. Makes me hopeful that they'll hit some other random comic choices.
>>6949110>We desperately need a new Clint, Loki, and Thor since they don't have any better import alternatives.I couldn't agree more!
>>6948716t. zoe quinn
I can't believe I never thought to take a pic of these two together
>>6949135Boy, that Hasbro metallic plastic sure is pearly/shimmery. Looks like Thanos is full of these things.
>>6949230Yeah, but for $20 im not complaining
>>6949230While not untrue, I think it looks like some kind of energy so depending on what it’s used for it can be cool imo
where do you guys get your stands for posing and air posing
>>6949110I forgot to add I already have all the GotG including that Ego two pack. I had the comic versions of the Avengers but I didn't want to pay for that GotG set so I stuck with the MCU versions for them. Since Infinty War was so good I felt the need to get some Avengers. I also got AoU Iron Man and Infinty War Cap on the way. Just to add some variation. I thought about AoU Cap for a complete team from that movie but his suit in Civil War is basically the same. I wanna get the new Thor from Infinity War too.
>>6949230I think it looks better than the new MS one.
How often do they come out with cyclops in this costume?They seem to be all gone here in Australia unless you buy it as a whole set.
payment requests going out
>>6948844>using /tv/ memes>supporting Revoltech junkYou're the literal scum of the Earth.
>>6949317Probably wont be a new version for a long time.
I came across Ant-Man and Malektih from the Cul-Obsidian wave at Gamestop today. Malekith was pretty tight, and had some nice matte red paint. Ant-Man was kind of a disaster if you're only after the Rudd head. The print was way off, and made him kind of look like Sloth from the Goonies. This does not bode well.
Wish they'd release an accessory pack that had Spidey's legs and Tony's weird nano weapons.
Gotta say, I'm a fan of this guy, reused jacket and all.
what's the best place to preorder mezco one:12 from?
>>6949694I usually get mine through BBTS. Who are you looking to get?
Got a Box of avengers wave 2 and Deadpool in at my walmart last night, so be on the lookout.Movie figs look pretty good but they fucked up thors beard a bit.
>>6949694If you're from the states almost every place I believe it's goodIf you're outside us bbts international shipping is pretty good
>>6949703After seeing the comic punisher, I really want their netflix punisher.
>>6949819I really love the way he looks, but I feel like they held back too much on the weapons.The minigun is nice but he never used it. Where's the sniper or rifles? I'm getting him anyways despite that.
>>6949672Where'd you get the revolver?
>>6949865I got it from the revoltech Jigen. It's attached to his hand but the glue on there was pretty light.It has a small divot in the handle but it's unnoticeable when he holds it.He also comes with an opened cylinder one which is great.
>saw a figuarts dr. strange for 55 bucks this morning on amazon warehouse>think about it while eating breakfast, tab back and it was goneDid I fuck up?
>>6949620I really gotta see this head with better lighting.
Sell me that Thanos left leg, you know you’re not gonna use it >>6949989
>>6945400Planning to get modern Cable myself. What's /marvelgen/'s thoughts on him?
Shartimus sucks, but here's Silver Surfer. Looks pretty decent.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ig66e-xLPA
>>6946637That line was the best, I had the Norman figure as a kid. Toybiz could make anything into a great figure.
>>6950026Honestly he's pretty meh. I got him a while ago before they announced the new one. The new one is so much better. Same with Deadpool. The accessories on the old one were better, an alt head, swords, handguns, bazooka, and taco. The new one only comes with two swords but honestly it's a much better figure.
Swapped heads with my MS Thanos, looks better IMO.
>>6950116They're sculpted that way.
>>6950065I'm not a Shartimus fan but I like that at the end of the video he always puts up scale comparisons with other figures. It's nice to see how a new figure compares to the rest of the wave as well as older figures of the one he is reviewing. So basically I just skip to the end of his videos.
>>6950106Yeah I agree it looks better.
>>6948733>actions figures (toys) based on comic book characters>"It's too bright"
New Thread >>6950467
>>6950207what is that left hand from? it doesn't look like cable's from any other picture I have seen.
>>6950472It's from CapWolf. I cut the the trigger finger in with and exacto knife, primed and painted the hand.
>>6950106i'd like to see this with the new walmart baf head
>>6945406>>6945400I just went full autism and bought this Deadpool and cable, that toys r us dark phoenix+cyclops pack and pic related set as my first figurinesshould I open them or leave them in the box? I want to take them out but I have this dread like i would have this big feeling of guilt if I do. I don't even think I would even be selling/scalping them. i just want the main 90s style X-Men (cyclops, yellow wolverine, Jean Grey/Phoenix, rogue, gambit, beast, white suit storm, colossus, bishop, morph) and just give away ones I dont want to nephew's and nieces.not even sure if I want bad guys but I definitely want a magneto and juggernaut and possibly sabertooth.
>>6950698Good choices with the Cable and Deadpool. Both are awesome. You did pretty good with the figures you chose. That Cyke especially is hard to come by unless you buy the whole wave like you did. Also open those fuckers up. They're Marvel Legends. They're not going to exponentially increase in price except for maybe one or two hard to find figures like Cyclops. Open em up, pose them, play with them, enjoy them. Welcome to /toy/ my friend. You're here forever.
>>6950106>that peg leg Pete tooth gap
>missed out on the Revoltech Wolverine
>>6945255How bout chrome over the swirly plastic so when it chips you’re just left with what we got anyways.
>>6954144As far as I know, soft pvc can't really be chromed. Never seen or heard of it being done.
