Genuinely asking, who buys cel-shaded and monochrome variants of these figures?
I get it from a business standpoint, it's an easy way to get mold reuse out of a figure, but who is out there buying these in enough quantities to justify the mold reuse in the first place?

I could appreciate that if the base figure wasn't grey. If it was say - maybe not white, but a lighter and more neutral control than essentially a shade of black - with some highlight coloring. With Batman, the highlight coloring could have been in say blue and/or yellow. With Superman, it of course could have also been yellow with some blue and maybe just a splash of red somewhere. Spider-Man could have just had some red on his costume, with say white on eyes, etc. Like PICREL when newspapers and cheap magazines couldn't afford four color printing.

McFart has some of the worst customer service on the planet. I got a Black Friday shipment two months plus late because they sent it to the wrong address, which of course they tried to blame on my ordering, even though they have the right address or the credit card payment would NOT have been approved. They just slapped another label on the same box even though it was clearly beat up right where the label had to be slapped on, with a hole immediately below it that was covered partially by the slapped on replacement label. The box got even more damaged by the post office but they claimed that 30 days had passed since it was ordered and they couldn't do refunds. I ask about making an insurance claim and they literally wrote back "we could make ...." which was Todd Customer Speak 'we could but we won't unless you ASK US TO' - when I wrote to ask about the status of the insurance claim, which I should have been able to make myself because I am the one who paid for the postage/shipping, since they don't ever offer free shipping, the same asshole claimed that 30 days had passed and they couldn't file a claim, even though the post office allows 60 and up to 90 days depending on circumstances.

Even Crapazom has better customer service since you can actually get a live person, even if it's someone on the subcontinent you end up speaking with.

Honestly I'm not even against offering people the chance to buy unpainted versions of the figures they put out. The 40k line does well doing it since the franchise is known for customizing your own units.

The chase variants are still done, and it's arguably worse now because instead of monochrome figures it's all over the place. Shit like making a character design people actually want a platinum with the less popular design being a wide release, or the platinum being AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT CHARACTER. It's started affecting the accessories too, like a recent Val Zod figure coming with nothing in the wide release and an entire set of snap on armor exclusive to the platinum.

Got the reissue of the playmates voltron. It’s big. Super Colossal Indoraptor for comparison.

$110. Target only had one set of the legs and arms, but four black lions for some reason. I am expecting a lot of incomplete sets.

Felt pretty good compared to the hasbro ones that just came out. Lots of ratchets and clicky joints. More like the korean combiners.

Setting up Hordak as new hotness to overshadow Skeletor alone wouldnt work that well. But setting Horde as rival faction was the part that made addition of Horde really exciting. Now if we just had more media capitalising on it.
>>
>>10959624
I have a feeling the 2000s series would have made good use of the Horde being such a huge threat that it probably would unite the evil warriors and the heroic masters in a temporary alliance to re-banish Hordak.

They had already done a fairly good job with the Snakemen conflict (which they would have built upon further if the show hadn't been cancelled)
>>
>>10959641
I get the feeling they would have used it as the vehicle for the Snakes teaming with the Evil Warriors like in vintage.
King Hiss was dead, Skeletor had reclaimed Snake Mountain, and the Horde was back. What else were they gonna do?
Or at the very least, maybe they fractured; Kobra Khan going back to Skeletor having gotten treated like a bitch by the "real" snakes (maybe taking Sssqueeze and Snake Face with him?) while Rattlor and Tung Lashor join the Horde like muh Filmation. (Were Snake Troopers known about in 2002? Maybe Rattlor and TL would have taken the bulk of the army to Hordak and thus allowed Hordak to upgrade them)

It is a perfectly decent shonen manga that had pretty good art, characters and action that decided to end before turning into a miserable zombie of a series like Naruto or BNHA.

When I am wondering around a store that sells collectibles at discounts, like TJ Maxx or Ross, I don't even need to look at the boxes of the figures and lines I don't recognize immediately because it's not my wheelhouse to know when some of that crap is Todd garbage.

I'm mostly looking at these for fodder parts when they are dirt cheap (under $5) but once I looked up how minimally the body might articulate, it's easy to put the box down even if it a store decided to mark it down under $1!

And even the new things, like the last time I was at a large department store that had a full line of collectibles, I picked up one of the Dune boxes, only to be disappointed at how bad the likeness was (it was a potential present for a friend and I knew likeness would be a big deal for them), and saw how poorly made they looked FOR THE PRICE, it didn't shock me it was an MTS figure.

I feel bad for Godzilla and Monsterverse fans if this idiot has an actual contract with Legendary and this wasn't just a one-off because the idiots at Warner Consumer Products are lazy.

There's no digimon general at the moment so why not.

You wanted to use Airazor as a stand in because you thought the robot mode of the official one looked shitty. After finding out that she never canonically uses the robot mode and it's only the bird mode that really counts, you're now changing your argument to 'the new one is the wrong size!' and 'uh, I have different standards!'.
>>10958877
>different standards
You must have abysmally low standards that you can just replace a character with whatever random one you have lying around and be content with it.
I don't own Deathsaurus, so maybe I should just lower my standards to your level and use my SS86 Grimlock as a stand-in for him? Seems legit enough, right?

I agreed that TM Airazor is a better looking Airazor than Kingdom Airazor. I never agreed that TM Airazor is a better looking Filch. Because she isn't.

I didn't lose - you did. And there's no reason to move to another thread when this one's still on Page 5.
>>10958888
But would he have made a good Deathsaurus? The universal sentiment is 'no', and even Hasbro thought otherwise, hence the Haslab.

Was happy to complete the Indiana Jones Adventure Series. Not a bad series but sad to see it might not continue.

What’s everyone’s thoughts on the line and the future of Indy toys? I don’t see them discussed here much so I’m not sure if I’m the only one interested in them or if people are afraid to talk about them. The hasbro figures turned out great and I love that we finally got a line that tried to world build with all of the characters and their different looks. I hope the line continues, but I’ve heard rumors that it was only ever supposed to be 25 figures. If so, that’s a shame and seems like a financially dumb decision.

Is there a consensus 'best' (but affordable) Indy figure for a longtime fan who's not gonna buy a bunch of these but wouldn't mind having one fairly classic Indy on the shelf?
>>
>>10952101
Probably the SH Figuarts or any of the main Indy costume adventure series ones are good too and more affordable
>>
>>10952248
Thanks. That Figuarts does look great but I'm poor so I might have to settle for something cheaper (even a 3 3/4 maybe if I can find a decent one). Did the Costume Adventure really not make a plain single classic Indy, just the golden idol playset? What a scam.
>>
>>10954393
No, they did. But he sold pretty well and can be harder to get on his own nowadays though. I’m not sure if you’re in the US, but hasbro pulse has the temple escape Indy for 33, which is just classic Indy plus some more accessories.
>>
>>10954417
Cool, thanks. Looks like the basic one costs about that much on eBay by itself. Though part of me is like "if I'm spending $40 maybe I should think about just spending the extra and going up to the Figuarts..."

The green guys. The yellow ones were Asian. Obviously.

Welcome back.

To start, some figures are expected to be hit with delays, so be ready to wait a bit more for the current figures to release. Marisa is one of the recently delayed releases. Its possible Shamrock might be delayed too since we've had no updates on him yet.

In figure news, Marisa will once again be delayed to May as mentioned by Daibadi themselves as they are fixing some issues on her final production model. More info on Torin has been released by Daibadi themselves. He is finishing up her final model and has finally shown the new Gun Hands that was mentioned a while back. Each hand will have gun barrels at the fingertips and she has an updated bow for the back of her skirt. No other info has been given for other releases at this time. If no delays occur, we will hopefully get Shamrock by the end of this month.

As always, here is the assistance e-mail for those who need it, so if any problem should arise, feel free to contact them over at "user_support@mile-stone.jp" or the shop you purchased the figure from.]

Hey /toy/ what are some good display cabinets for miniatures?

I want something enclosed by simple wood on the sides and back and with a glass door, but Im having a lot of trouble finding that.
Maybe you can help?

Me and my buddy threw this together for ablut 80 bucks in 4 hours, but we were fucking off and werent in a rush to finish it. Its pretty easy to built your own cases.

I agree with all this. I think you can do it for less than $80.

You might also enjoy trying to find someone with the tools who needs help with some other different skill (you're a good cook, you're a good accountant and can do taxes, etc.) and you can barter parts of the job. Things like painting is something any idiot can do but you might need the right tools to at least cut the wood.

>When companies blame Covid what they're really blaming is unchecked capitalist greed driving inflation. Everyone raised prices during the pandemic because they could and never dropped them again.
In case this isn't bait, let me ask you this anon. If companies can set whatever prices they want, why don't they just sell everything for 1 million dollars so they can make as much money as possible? If you answered "because nobody would pay that much" you are correct, that is the first step in understanding supply and demand. There was more supply of money due to stimulus checks, government blowing money on random crap, and money printer brrrr-ing shenanigans in general, so people who would previously not pay 1.25 for their doodads are now willing to do so. It's not going to "go back down" to 1.00 because that money is still in circulation. If you dont want inflation to happen stop printing money

If you think people still have any of the $2-5K they got in 2019/2020 and it wasn't spent on groceries, rent, utilities, or non-necessities, you aren't paying attention to the absurdly low saving rates in the USA, the amount of revolving credit debt in the USA (highest on the planet by far), etc.

>>
>>10955454
Yeah, the same dude saying they won't raise prices too high because they need stuff to sell apparently forgot about the PPP loans that were forgiven, meaning that, no, the don't need stuff to sell because they already got a trillion dollar handout from the government.

Didn't see a relevant question thread. Does anyone know of any half decent line of yokai figures? I've found some of Yokai Watch, which are a little too kiddy and marketable for me, and some tiny trading figures. Ideally something a little bigger would be nice. Also general question thread I guess.
>>
>>10955010
>and some tiny trading figures
Unfortunately, that's the best you can get, for some reason Yokai are too niche for articulated figures. The best I can suggest are:
Figma Table Museum Maruyama Okyo's Yurei-zu for a classic looking japanese ghost
KT Project Takeya Style Jizai Okimono Gaikotsu for a multi purpose monster skeleton
KT Project Takeya Style Jizai Okimono Gaikotsu Musha and Figma Table Museum Human Body Model if you're a fan of the Seven School Mysteries
Also there is the upcoming MAESTRO UNION Syuten Douji if you want a stylized oni
Just take into account most of these aren't easy to find and/or are a little pricey.
