New Figura Obscura release. I dig the Bastet figure, but have a visceral negative reaction to buff doberman Anubis. It's not as bad with the mask, but the other heads just don't work for me, and if I did want buff Anubis, I would've bought the tbleague figure. If they make the retailer version single packs like the instagram post hints, I'll hold off for that version of Bastet unless they really fuck up the colors.

Some tooling images for Necronominus out, so it's probably coming before the holidays this year.
>>
Always wanted an Anubis figure so I'm gonna go in on these. Would have preferred black skin to match the heads but oh well still cool and I guess this is more accurate.

Hot Take Alert!

Brace yourselves, Horsemaniacs...

I think 4HS figures are very well crafted, insomuch that the details of everything are perfectly realized, however, I also find them artistically boring. They are often the most generic, cliched, and unremarkable incarnations of various archetypal characters - fantasy, scifi, or, in this case, historical.

This is not to say their figures are bad or that I don't like them. If you compare them to other similar figures from larger toy companies, they are usually much better. However, 4HS figures also cost more than double those figures, and with few exceptions, I just don't see the value.

What I would like, and this is just my selfish opinion, are these same figures without any accessories, soft goods, or excessively detailed painting for $35. Suddenly, putting a basic version of these figures against NECA and Diamond Select makes them look far more attractive to me, and I think many others as well.

The alternative would be to keep their current price while making much more daring, weird, and unique designs that make a statement. I'm thinking of something like the recent vinyl toys from James Groman, the crazy samurai oni Syuten Douji from Maestro Union, or many of the older, offbeat McFarlane figures (from the same guys!).

Either way, I'm not excited by these figures despite being a huge geek for Egyptian mythos, if only because I already bought a less detailed yet more fun Anubis-type figure from Spin Master for <$10. There's also some Bastet statues out there that look like busty, Egyptian concubines wearing cat ears for less than $60. Do with that what you will.

Instantly picked up. Those alternate Anubis/cat heads are going to look great with Cosmic space suits.

I found a broken Lizzie and Ralph from the rampage toyline and fixed them up this weekend.

Both figures have basic articulation but it fits amazingly well as mounts. They were crafted by the Horsemen and fits surprisingly well with other lines as well.

I think they're cool, but not amazing enough for the price. Having to buy both doesn't help. I generally appreciate Mythic Legions for being generic and having just the right touch of quality design to make a great figure, but this looks like a case where a Chinese brand would do something similar for less, especially for those outside the US where shipping and customs raise the price a lot.

Speaking of prices, pixelatoy has a few figures on discount, interesting for Iberian anons. I got Swigg for 45 after passing on the regular price.

If they had been separate, I would've bought two Bastets after seeing Dorklair's review. They added a neck hinge to the female torso, and did a great job with the stone effect paint.

Any bets on whether the retailer version will keep the same skin tone, go mediterranean olive, darkest ebony, or literal jet black?

Wasn't expecting these guys, but now I'm highly tempted. I guess the price+shipping will determine if I bite on it or wait for the Retailer version. But I kind of really like em in these colors....

>>10998246
I honestly will not argue the fact that the 4H have been playing things straight and traditional with their Mythic Legions figures. But the point I would argue is that this is a strength, not a flaw. Most people who buy these want them *because* they fill that role of traditional fantasy characters, as that's a genre that was ignored for a long time in toy form. Add in that customization and part swapping isn't just easy with these guys, but highly encouraged, and it gives you a perfect blank starter figure to build your own unique and custom characters off of. If these designs were too stylized or specifically detailed, it could easily push people away from the line as a whole.

Though I do feel the FO figures are overpriced. Their limited nature, special packaging, unique tooling and accessories and intricate paint jobs are all very nice, but it's still difficult to rationalize paying the price these things go for.

>>10998308
Nice find anon, Lizzie is a fantastic accessory for the Legions figures, or any fantasy line you might want to stick her with. Her build quality and articulation are certainly cheap as cheap can be. But her sculpt work, detailing and surprisingly her paintjob are all fantastic so she blends in with high quality figures real well.

Never got my hands on Ralph though, sadly Wal-mart screwed me out of buy them online and the entire toyline just didn't exist by me in stores. But if Lizzie is so great, I'm sure Ralph is a fantastic figure too.

Yes, moved on from supporting the line, hence the reduced price sale for bundled blind packs, because they lost customers from shitty QC and rage inducing customer service.

Hah.
It's not even the fault of the two or three other anons who have been voicing their displeasure with Mythic Legion line in the past 5 months.

It's solely on 4H, with their horrible quality control that turned off hundreds of fans from continuing their involvement into line and their idiotic customer service that angered what's little that's left of their fanbase.

Nevermind 4H is solely making their figures for Hemanfags, a niche group of nostalgiafags, so there's no new blood to replace everyone that 4H shat on for complaining that their figures are breaking.
THIS is why the Mythic Legion general is dead. Not because of me or anyone else. 4H fucked up and now they're reaping their rewards, with overstock they could only offload as clearanced blind packs and saying shit's totally selling out to create FOMO.

>>10999020
Yeah, as a fan of 4H's designs (not talking about their shitty business model), i pay attention, but yeah, it's nothing but disappointment thanks to shit being mostly redecos and retools.

I think 4H really need a 3.0 rework on female bodies. The 2.0 elf/female/goblin buck is just disastrous. Making an androgynous buck just means it is badly sculpted female and badly sculpted male. The hips are too wide for male characters. Limbs too short overall. Unarmored upper arm and thighs have no muscle definition because they are double up to be gender neutral limbs. Head is too big. The 2.0 bodies are only good on goblins

This post is why nobody bothers to start a 4H general anymore. Not the content of the post, because it's all disingenuous bullshit that twists facts.
No, nobody wants to start a thread because it means putting up with your autistic 10 year grudge against the company. You are a shit smear on the entire board. Anons would rather go to the faggot Facebook groups than deal with your autism. And the fact that you've jumped in here the second someone started a thread to sperg out with the same old shit shows what an utter cockmongler you are.

>>10999275
My personal experience of late has put me off from the company, yet I still enjoy and indulge the Figure Obscuras. It started with the stupidity of the brute size figures in the Poxxus wave. Oopsie those are on a separate boat so everyone who got them besides the All-In and retailers have to wait even longer for an incredibly delayed wave. Then when you have the wave in hand, you better heat them up at just the right temperature. If you leave them as is, the joints will snap off. If you heat them up too much, then suffer loose joints. Let's attempt to make a joke out of this. I didn't have any QC issues of that nature. But I did have a very loose left wing from Poxxus, right out of the box. I just got the replacement last week. Their Customer Service requests seem to be overflowing. It makes me fear the next two waves.
>>
>>10999338
4H did a live stream to talk down to their customers, because they were posting pictures of their latest figures breaking on social media.
They proceeded to mock them, implying they were hamhanding their toys and saying all problems should be handled in private, lest people find out about how horrible the quality control was, because they were going to have a sale later that week (it went poorly, thus needed to do this >>10999297 )

It was about an hour long video and pissed off a lot of fans, so 4H deleted that video and made another damage control video to say they did nothing wrong and that people just can't handle a joke.

Unfortunately, I don't have the screenshots from the comments section from their first youtube video that got deleted. I'm sure the other guy who gets called samefag (because only a single person would ever talk shit about 4H's horrible business tactics) will post them if he sees this thread.

Also, another forum started deleting photos people were taking of their figures breaking. That other anon started saving them when he noticed what was going on.

>>10999333
>waaaaaaaah
Yeah, okay, it's totally my fault 4H's figures are fragile pieces of shit, I'm personally responsible for giving 4H the idea to to cater to only Hemanfags, and i joined 4H's customer service to destroy them from the inside

The sale went so poorly that one figure sold out in less than 15 minutes, and nearly half of what was available sold out before it ended. It's funny that you resort to lying when there are so many shitty things about the company that you could be saying. Not that you would know any of it, because all of your information is like the clothes that you wear: second hand.

BBTS takes a really long time to sell their stock, so they wouldn't take it.
They likely took the unsold stock to their garages to sell at conventions later, just like they normally do/did when their online store closes after the sale period.

>>10999413
Did you monitor which figures sold out even though you don't collect them anymore and have had a hateboner festering in your pants for 10 years? Because you still got it wrong. Valiant knight sold out. Vamps from Illythia wave sold out. Dwarf, Goblin and Half Giant from Deluxe LB wave sold out. Cavern Dwarf and Silverhorn Sentry from Reinforcements sold out. Tibius and Mephitor sold out. And finally, your faves, the Trolls all sold out. There might have been a couple of others that went on the last day, but I doubt it.
>>it was so successful 4H needed to bundle the rest in blind boxes, at a discount
What discount? They were standard price. $75 for two figures. One common from a recent wave, one rare from their warehouse finds/special production run just for this sale.
You make shit up all the time, Subby.

>it's actually crazy how dead this general has been for the last year
The slower generals have pretty much died since the two week autosage was implemented. Another unfortunate example is the spooky skeleton thread which would stay alive for months through small trickles of news and pics and is now dead except around October. Now no one wants to create a new thread just to post some small news or a personal haul/display.

Which reminds me of something I've wondered because of this. Would it be a good idea to create a generic epic/fantasy general? Mythic Legions, Vitruvian/Epic Hacks, Xesray, Animal Warriors of the Kingdom, Fury Toys, Furay Planet, D20, Neca D&D, DS LOTR, Biblical Adventures, the occasional related figure from other toylines...
>>
>>10999455
OF course i didn't keep careful track of what sold out. All i noticed was not even half of what they put on sale disappeared from the store page, because they put their figures in orderly rows that are easy to keep track of.

What reason did you have to carefully keep track of what sold out? What person, outside of being a 4H employee, would even keep track of something like that?
Nevermind that a lot of that shit you're talking about didn't actually disappeared from the store page like the obvious ones that sold out. Were you clicking on every individual figure's page or trying to add them to your cart, to actually monitor sales that way? Who fucking does THAT?
Are you really that retarded that you don't realize how suspicious this behavior is, making you sound like a 4H employee?
This plus trying to downplay all of 4H's colossal fuck ups this year, you're anything but an employee.

>Would it be a good idea to create a generic epic/fantasy general?

I thought it would be nice, I remember something like "figures that goes well with Mythic Legions" thread back in old forum and it was the only thread that is chill. But as this thread proves, 4H fans are special kind of autism and I'm afraid that it might ruin the thread for everyone else so it makes sense to keep 4H separate as containment thread whenever the generic fantasy thread is going on.
>>
>>11000247
Yes, that was what I noticed had sold out when I got my order in on the second last day. Yes, they were listed as sold out on the main page. Stop trying to twist shit because you got caught lying again. Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean I am a 4H employee.
You know what is suspicious? Your 10 year grudge. I'm starting to think you are McFarlane's fuck boi who still can't get over the fact that 4H made their own line instead of sculpting Toddy's weird fetish shit.
>Lowering the shipping fee isn't a discount
Didn't lower it for international collectors, so no. It's not a discount. You know what BBTS does when they sell things at a discount? They lower the price of the item, not the fucking shipping.
I wasn't ordering that shit because I'd probably spend as a much as I would at BBTS only to end up with figures I didn't want.
You know what I don't do even though they still don't have Legion Builders as evergreen items and only do limited window sales for internationals who can't make it to the few conventions they attend?
You know what I don't do because 4H give preference to American customers?

Says the guy that these threads have become unpopular thanks to a sole anon
Says the guy who thinks everyone is samefag if they dislike 4H's horrible business decisions and/or shits on your retarded logic

And again, how can you possibly know all those figures sold out when a lot of them weren't taken off the store page? Suspicious. Trying to pull that tu quoque is retarded, because it's what fucking grade schoolers do when they're caught in the act.
Why are you monitoring their shit so closely? What do you gain from that? Or did you make up half of that shit up just to pretend 4H's sale went great... when everyone can see that they did their desperation sale a month later to get rid of the stock.

They've never done that before, so it makes sense that their latest fuck ups pissed off so many fans they didn't buy shit. These fucks are also why these threads have been dying for the past 5 years and Mythic LEgion Generals have been all but dead for the past year.

You're a worthless retard whose words are equally worthless, because you're just going back on them and making more shit up. Completely worthless to argue with.

But I'm glad you also think 4H is a garbage company and deserves to lose all its customers, especially after their fucked up youtube video 4 months ago where they shat on their customers for complaining that their newest figures were snapping on them more than usual.

You are trying to say that their in-stock sale was a dismal failure, because your feeble brain can only interpret things as absolutes.

Contradicting you when you are wrong isn't backpedaling. Learn English, you filthy mudblood.
Sale wasn't great. Sale wasn't shit. The fact that you can't figure out that there is something in-between those two measurements shows what a window licking retard you are. How the fuck can you be so dense that you can't figure it out? Is it spic or injun genes that make you more retarded than the average burger?
>Lolololololololol
You still can't figure out that they have increased production numbers from the era when you bought them when they would make less than 1000 units of some figures.
No I don't post in the Warhammer thread. I do browse it occasionally to watch the other anons make fun of the neighbourhood retard known as Subjectanon and call you a filthy secondary.
It's funny watching you show the level of your retardation in that thread too. You get really aggressive when you back yourself into a corner with your own lies in there too.

And since that anon who was documenting stuff like 4H's video where they shat on their fans for posting about the newest figures were breaking, I went into our archive and found what he was able to save.

Shit like this is what happens when fanboys bend over and defend shit quality, because then the company takes advantage of fanboys eating shit and makes their products even worse to save a buck or two.

/toy/ in general has been dead since that change, but yea a lot of slower threads just don't exist anymore because of it.

As for a Fantasy Figure general, I think that's a great idea and was planning to make one myself. But I wanted to use an OC pic and I have NOT had time to really mess with my figures as of late. Hell, I've had my Savage Crucible order for like two weeks and I haven't had a chance to even open the...surprisingly nice....shipping box.

But with so many new lines and especially all the one off releases popping up, a /ffg/ would probably be really nice.

....assuming one autist doesn't decide to shit up the thread.

>>11000612
That sounds awesome. You can probably build a really nice horde of bone boys with all the options we have these days. I remember when the Revol skeleton was like *the* only option, but skelebros eating good as of late.....which makes the loss of the /ssg/ even that much more heart breaking.

I’m really on the fence with these, what do you guys think? I was into Egyptian mythology growing up so these seem like a no brainer, but idk… I’ve never bought any of their stuff before.
>>
>>11005699
I'm getting fomoed so fucking hard with this set. The blue bastet heads are just so nice, and I know they'd go with something different for the retailer version.

>>11005722
You WILL NEED to heat them up before moving them when you get them out of the box, but they're pretty sturdy otherwise. The email they sent out for this sales period says they're definitely planning more of the pantheon for future release.
>>
>>11005781
Did they announce somewhere these will be released again, forgive me I’m new to this. And if so, it’ll be different colors and less accessories or something and probably single releases? I bought this two pack, but if they release an all black Anubis I’d be kinda tempted to get that too.
>>
>>11005792
Also I find it kind of weird Anubis didn’t come with the scale and a heart… I’m guessing they’ll probably put that with the retailer version since it’s a key accessory to try to get people to double dip.
>>
>>11005792
Very likely, I think all of the other ones they've made got retail versions too.

They haven't announced it yet, but they've done it every time before. They haven't changed anything besides color for the past retailer versions, so the scale and feather would come with Osiris or Ammit if they get to them.

I think you could argue the Headless Horseman and the Masque of the Red Death looked better maybe, but the others were definitely worse.

I live in Pennsylvania and we've been experiencing a heatwave this week. New Jersey is about five hours away from where these Four Horsemen usually ship from. I didn't have to heat this particular set of figures to move the joints. The Poxxus wave however required it but those came during the late winter. I've never had to do this with the Figura Obscura line.

>>11005934
The one I cared for, Father Christmas, I preferred it in green over the red original.

Nta, but I have the green one and kinda wish I got the red one since it's the more universally known color. I will admit, I like the alt brown bearded head that the green one comes with, and the Wisperling green arms would be super useful if I ever get another green elf I want to swap them on to.But the red does stand out way more and is just more recognizable in a normy christmas display. I'm happy with my green one though, he's a good figure overall and the green one does have an improved belt, which was a very nice touch.

That said, I much prefer the more Halloweeny colors of the Retail Horseman figure. The original FO is nice, but his build and colors are *way* too similar to the Vamp hawker who came out right around the same time. At the time I don't think Retailer versions of FO were a thing, but I think if I had known I would've waited for the much more colorful version of the Horseman.
>>
>>11006179
More or less the reason you suggest. Red and green are the most common colors for him, with red being the most commercial one, so I found the green one appealing for differenciation. Thus I got the Naughty and Nice classic "Santa" for that full-on Coca Cola take on the character and the green Figura Obscura for a more traditional "Father Christmas" take.
>>
>>11005934
>I can’t think of a single one that was better than the original.
Headless Horseman.
>>
>>11005805
Just buy one already. Theyre not going to get any cheaper and some are cheaper than the others. There were liek 5 different versions and the main one is probably the cheapest.

Their older figures aren't made of shit plastic like their newer ones are, so you won't regret your purchase.
>>
So which figura obscura release are we thinking is the best and worst so far? I’m thinking best is headless horseman or maybe even the Egyptian gods. Worst is probably Krampus.
>>
>>11007412
Best is Masque of the Red Death, worst is Jacob Marley.
>>
>>11007422
Really? I would actually say the opposite of this. Jacob Marley was amazing and the Masque of the Red Death was a little too obscure and not very visually interesting for me. The best thing out of that set was the clock.

>>11008372
I personally much prefer this one, but for people who are collecting Mythic Legions already and like that form factor, I can see why they like that one. The paint does look really pretty on it.

The thing about this one that I like best are the expressions. SunWuKong is a jovial character, so it's great that he can be shown this way.
>>
>>11008363
Krampus is only bad in so much that he was the first, and thus the most limited in build options and new parts. Similar to how Aerthyr is easily the worst of the Horsemen since he was the first and used the most retooled pieces.

>>11008372
>>11008387
I'd say Monkey King was actually one of the least popular FOs on the simple concept that a LOT of 4H collectors seem to somehow be entirely ignorant of the Journey to the West story and how popular it is globally. There was a lot of "what's this" and "why him" and many other companies offered more unique and interesting takes on the characters, often providing better articulation to boot. His sculpt and paint work are fantastic, and the whole figure is an amazing sight, but I don't think the character landed with as much impact as some others.
>>
>>11009112
>LOT of 4H collectors seem to somehow be entirely ignorant of the Journey to the West story and how popular it is globally.

All the current 4H fanboys only buy into the line because they're Hemanfags and only want HeMan analogues.

You do know that there are two actual He-man lines that He-man fags can buy right now, right?
You do know that 4H only do two He-man tribute figures a year, right?
You do know that you're dumber than a sack of potatoes, right?

I skipped the Figura Obscura and got that one on preorder because the proportions seem much more monkey-like and it's probably more poseable. I wish they had included the rage face with the normal release, though the faces he got are pretty cool, too, and also I'm not sure what size he'll be.

Speaking of other lines, the Savage guys arrived and they are amazing. I love how sharp the skin detail is.

If only they could stand better... It's a pain in the ass to balance them and they're likely to fall eventually.
The figures are somewhat tall and top heavy and the ankle joint is a bit weak between ratchets, but the sculpt of the soles is maybe the bigger sin. But it seems they are going to give replacement feet to backers and have them corrected from now on, so that's nice.
>>
Why doesn’t Four Horseman prioritize the figura obscura line more? We get 2, maybe 3 releases a year. Especially when one of those will be a Christmas themed release. It seems to be their best selling line and theres a lot of people who only collect that from four horseman. I think four a year would be nice, one for each quarter.

No need to be so rude, it could still be special with one or two more releases a year. As it is it’s going to take several years to get a sizeable Egyptian pantheon and years to get all the Christmas Carol ghosts. My current main want from them right now is Sherlock Holmes, because he doesn’t have any good figures and I bet they’d release Watson or Moriarty first for some reason and then take another two years for us to get Holmes. For singular releases the line works fine, but when they release figures that are clearly part of a set, the one or two releases a year doesn’t work really.

>>11009994
I mean they always quickly sell out and there’s plenty of people who only collect the figura Obscura line.

4H is capitalizing on "what if He-Man had elves/vampires/trolls/etc", hence their bizarre scale and exaggerated He-man-like proportions on even shit like the skeletons. Even their cosmic shit is just an extention of He-Man, since they're techno-barbarians and the second He Man series was in space.
They're expanding on what Mattel has produced or would have produced, if He-Man was popular.

>>11010036
While the FO do sell out quick and draw attention from non-fan collectors, their big waves are usually incredibly popular with the fans. The FO figures are great and all, but I can't see how random release single figures would ever do bigger numbers then a hotly anticipated major wave featuring multiple new characters.

I do agree a more frequent release schedule for the FO wouldn't hurt too much. Dropping them quarterly would certainly help people to expect and budget for these random drops.

>>11010161
It's hilarious and kinda sad how obsessed he is with both He-Man and the 4H. Despite the two lines only crossing over in non-canon con exclusive figures, he's convinced of this delusional conspiracy that only He-man fans buy 4H figures and thus all 4H figures are specifically aimed at He-man fans.

I mean, even with the most basic understanding, the idea makes no sense. But a crazy mind is a hard thing to unravel, and conspiracy nuts are almost impossible to discuss anything with.

Are you only saying this shit just to avoid being sued by Mattel?

Because anyone with eyes knows that 4H has been trying to capitalize on Heman fags for a very long time.
It's the only reason why they're in the He-Man style/scale in the first place.
We've seen collections from people in these threads and everywhere else that Hemanfags are the last people who still buy into this line.

Might as well pretend that 4H's fanbase is as big as ever and didn't lose practically all of it after 9 years of constant fuck ups.

They are my first Xesray males and their body construcion doesn't seem as solid as the one gladiatrix I got, maybe because the pieces are earlier. Very nice figures, though, especially for non-US customers for which these end up being cheaper than Legions.

I wish the heads were just a bit smaller, but that's a general thing in the line. I don't know why they haven't done a slow, stealthy reverse head size creep on the heads over the years.

yeah, they mentioned it's mostly reused parts and the few new ones are already in development so they can get the wave out within 12 months. Makes sense to do a wave that has more reuse, since they ramped up new parts significantly over the last few waves, but it's a bit disappointing nonetheless

Oh thank goodness it's a fairly mediocre wave. Very few actual must have stand out oh-my-god-amazing figures. Mostly "would be kinda cool" types, some "I guess that's nice" figures and even a "wtf why?" character. It's almost the complete opposite of the last wave.

Gobs I'll get, just because the parts alone make the set worth it. I'll get the cat dude because, while I'm not actually a furry, I've been wanting a good rogue forever and all he'd need is a new head and I'd be set. Also, I love how he comes with *all* the knives. Kinda even tempted by the mage dude, even though I don't actually like the whole "old man wizard with colorful robes" deal.

Azza is kinda cool, but not really different enough from her first one to be that interesting. Centaurs are always awesome, but don't really need a second. The Angel guy actually looks fantastic without the wings and with the alt helmet. Kinda like a super tough non-boss guard type enemy. The Frost Ogre is kinda the same way, as it looks better with the Alt Frost Giant head. Though the Knight Builder is fantastic for anyone who didn't get a Valiant Knight or who's new to the line in general.

Overall, nothing in this wave feels like a "must have" and I am perfectly fine with that. It means I can cherry pick the crap out of it and not worry about fomo for potentially cool figures. A solid B- wave if I ever saw one and I am ok with that.

Subby doesn't buy Mythic Legions, and hasn't for at least 5 years.
He only comes to the thread to tell us how much 4H hate their fans because of a stream he didn't watch, and how their figures always break in waves he hasn't bought, and how they are going to go out of business because he thinks their figures not selling out instantly like they used to means they have no fans anymore, mainly because of that stream he didn't watch that he had to dig through the archives to get screencaps of the negative comments from. He hasn't mentioned interest free loans in a while, or posted his Rancor pics this thread though, but since there has just been a stream, he should be back later tonight, and I should win at Subjectanon Bingo if he posts one of his classic images. I've got 3 rows nearly filled.

Swing and a miss my dude. But thanks for showing off exactly the kind of damage a disingenuous asshat like him can do to any kind of honest discussion of the line.

I'm a huge fan of the line and the company in general, but that don't mean everything they make is perfect. But he's poisoned this place so badly, even making minor criticisms gets people labelled as haters and it stifles any actual discussion of the line as a whole.

>>11014811
>>11014850
These guys get it. I've been following the line since the literal start, and though I have over a hundred of these guys it don't mean I never had a complaint or critique about em. But I can point out flaws and problems while still finding the overall quality and direction of the line to be positive as I genuinely do love these figures.

This wave don't have any new parts, it's "2.0" character isn't some stellar rework or re-imagining, there are no hotly demanded or expected new characters and more then half the wave is army builders without being actual Legion Builders. It's honestly not as good of a wave as their previous big waves. That don't mean these figures are *bad*, they're just not really all that exciting on their own.

.....except the Gold Skeleton 2, that one's just full of "wut". It's nice they finally gave it a back story, but I don't think anyone was clamoring for *more* oddly colored skeleton soldiers.
>>
>>11014885
>It's honestly not as good of a wave as their previous big waves.
This isn't one of their big waves, which are always at the end of the year. It's more like the recent All Star waves, but instead of actual rereleases, they did updated versions of old shit along with the new stuff like the gobbos. It's pretty much in line with the last two All Star waves, which were new figs that were mostly repaints with new heads, plus a couple of rereleases.
>>
>>11014780
don't lie.
4H has been using shit plastics for 8 years and people have been complaining for 8 years. This is why the Mythic Legion threads have lost most of their population by 2020.
Nevermind their last damage control video, where they had even higher numbers of people complaining.

You can pretend it's only samefag lying about having problems, but the fact is these threads went from having 120-80 posters as the norm but last count before 4chan removed the unique poster count at the bottom, it was half that by 2020.
And i'd like to point out that their in stock sales also used to last only a day. For the past 4 years, they sales have remained up for much longer and we've seen how stuff that supposedly sold out returns. PLUS, the last sale we saw how they needed to give a discount AND sell shit as a blind set, because they had so much shit left over.

Only goes to show how they're overproducing for a shrinking fanbase.

The problem is the simple fact that these shills are the only people really left in these threads now.

99% of the old fans have left, hence the complete dearth of photos from the many different people we used to have, because 4H lost the trust of their fans after releasing shoddy product after shoddy product.
So who's left? Only the most ardent fanboys, who think 4H has done no wrong, and the shills. If you're not completely positive about the toyline, these shills will attack you and since these shills seemingly don't own any of the toys, what's there to discuss?
"BUY THIS! BUY THAT!"? That isn't conductive for any toy brand.

And the photos that are taken, there's nothing really exciting about them, because 4H doesn't want to spend the money on improving beyond 2003-level engineering. You can't pick up new fans that way, because new fans expect better than boring-ass straight up and down standing poses. Why should anyone spend money on $50 toys when they can get something modern and isn't just a retool of a retool for the same price?
Nevermind the shit plastics that are even worse than before, hence me not buying anything in the past couple of years after experiencing breakage problems with every wave i bought into. I'm still a fan of 4H, and will buy their McStatues because they have good designs, but man, i'm waiting for these assholes to produce a wave that doesn't suffer from shit plastics.

Fair enough point, I guess I got spoiled by the Sons wave. I don't think it's a particularly bad wave overall though, most figures look great and there's a nice variety to the wave as a whole. The new Azza is also an improvement over the original though I do wish she got a new, unique head instead of just a repaint of Thraice. Something to make her a bit more unique of a figure warranting the 2.0 treatment.

The only figure that confuses me is the Gold Skeleton. They weren't that popular of a Legion Builder, so why make it a deluxe army builder with wings? Maybe if it was a unique character it'd make more sense, but it's a bit overpriced for what it's intended purpose is supposed to be. We have plenty of other army builders this wave so I don't see why this guy made the cut.

Personally, I'm just getting the Goblins, the Knight Builder and the cat dude, all the rest are nice figures but none of them fill any holes in my collection.

>>11015174
I've been in these threads from the start and I agree, it's more the toxic dumbass ruining the threads rather then people not being fans of the line. If the line were doing poorly, we wouldn't see such regular releases of increasing quality and new parts. But again, nothing that dude ever says is even remotely true and I'm at the point where I just hide his posts and pretend like they never happened. This thread works way better that way imo.

Anyway, random gerbil.
>>
I'm almost certainly going to get Iosef and the Gold Skeleton (to upgrade Scaphoid and have a repentant skelly), but I'm still debating the Gobs and Blue Shield.
I have a good number of goblins already, so the set offers a lot of variety, but it pushes the ranks further than I'd like and doesn't have the 2.0 fur loin cloth options to go with the bare limbs.
The knight builder set has a lot of really nice options, but the base armor doesn't hit as hard as the Valiant Knight and I'm still pissed about missing it in the stock sale.

Azza does less for me than Thraice and Belualyth. Xue feels too busy with the long beard, heavy cuffs, robes, hood, and armor. I wish the ogre had tattoos or new calves and feet. I don't need the centaur. The cat burglar's nice enough, but I only really want the shadow elf repaint of Duban's head.

I'll wait to put orders in until after a few other companies have the chance to show off their new stuff, because between Joes, Action Force, and some preorders coming in, it might be a tight month.

Oh yea no, the original figures were awful with bows. The in/out wrist hinges and bulky armored elbows did them no favors. Even the 2.0 figures struggled imo, mostly due to the wrists. It wasn't until you got up/down wrists and better range of chest motion could these guys hold bows decently.

But they could still do the "Iron Man" pose, which is what was requested.

>I think it's a sign that these threads declined in quality
You clearly don't go to any other thread on /toy/.
Transfags have been talking about the decline of their threads since 2009 and nearly every other General thread is the same way. Some DEAD brands like those fucking LEGO mask figs is probably more alive than when it was still alive. Same shit with GI Joe and the 1/18 threads.
McFarlane is almost nothing but shitposting, but they power through it. Same shit with NECA, which used to be worse in the early 10s.

With quality toys, fans will always be up for discussion.
I mean, I've been here BEFORE the Mythic Legion threads, and despite years without products, we still had fans wanting to talk, hence the popularity of the Mythic Legion and Power Lords threads. Over a hundred posters during the KS eras. So if I've been here for practically forever, a constant, what's the difference between 2008-2019 and now?
Since it takes longer than a year to get the toys you preorder through 4H, it lines up with how many strikes fans will give to shit quality in that time. The Raven KS was mostly fine, but we saw a decline in QC starting with Mythic LEgions. First with painting issues and the shit customer service. Then the loose joints... and the shit customer service. Finally the engineering issues and still the shit customer service.
Nevermind paint durablity was still popping up and the shit plastic issues was a constant thing. Nevermind the shit customer service, which noticeable had fewer complaints by 2020... coincidently when these threads became depopulated.

>>11015320
>it's more the toxic dumbass ruining the threads
Not my fault that the fanbase has been killed, because 4H has been producing too many lazy retools and fucked over thousands of fans who used to actually post their toys and wanted to talk about them.
Again, when it's nothing but ardent fanboys and shills, all discussion is limited to NEWEST SALE and attacking anyone who isn't shilling.

I loved Mcfarlane's stuff growing up, and I still buy his stuff today. But I can't really remember the last time I opened a McFarlane figure and didn't feel disappointed. Between the limited articulation on some, or janky detented joints on others or the *way* too soft weapons combined with *far* too stiff and sharp hands that can't hold them properly or the absolute lack of paint on a lot of their releases...current McFarlane stuff just doesn't wow as much as they used to.

Still, for what I pay for em, I can't really complain too much. But from the once king of "adult collector" toys, the product he puts out now feels cheaper then most Marvel Legends, which is a damn shame.

Have you ever looked at the way hands hold swords when in motion? Both hands are not locked side by side with a full grip on the sword on a sword when in the positions in those photos. Take a look at some medieval fencing manuals for examples. Sword grips are fluid, and often loose if you look at a single moment in time.

When the original ML figures were released, alternate hands weren't a part of the offering, but in light of what WAS available, those photos show quite nicely what the 1.0 body is cable of. It's not perfect, but it's decent. They've come a long way since then.

As a side note, in the first one you pointed out, the hand is simply making contact to prevent anything catching as the sword is drawn, it's not meant to be gripping the blade, so I'm not sure what you're trying to communicate by highlighting it.

Don't bother arguing with facts, logic and reason anon, all it does is draw out an argument that has no winner. Just post cool figures or pics and keep on ignoring him.

But yea, these guys have come a long way. The sculpt, paint, range of motion and accessories on the newer figures are all leagues ahead of where we started. Those older figures still have their charm, but newer fans are eating good these days.

Though I will never not be sad that Legion Builders don't seem to get included in main waves anymore. Yea a whole wave of em with no pre-order wait is nice, but the limited nature if the in-stock sales really dampers the excitement of buying army builders. Heck, the fact this last wave is six out of ten army builders, and they're all Deluxe priced or higher, is honestly an issue that should be addressed. Builder sets are cool and all, but they lose some of their value when there's no cheap blank bodies to use all the extra stuff with.

This isn't the only thread on /toy/, retard, but thanks for proving you're completely unaware of what's going on in the rest of /toy/.

Every thread has their shitters, but guess what? Most other brand are so popular there's more people who want to actually talk about the toys.
Whereas these threads? They only exist to advertise the next sale, and basically stick around to prove the shitters wrong. But that's actually next to impossible, since 4H has been such a shit brand for so long and has actually gotten worse.

So the best you can do is ignore the complaints, pretend everyone who isn't absolutely positive is samefag, say pictures of actual problems don't count because 2+2≠4 if you already said 4 before, or just insult the person.
And after 5 years of 4H releasing poor products and shills doing their best to disenfranchise fans who have had problems, what do you have?

You have a shit threads, because there's no natural discussion anymore and mostly just shills, who only want to pick fights with everyone.

>>11016535
I like how you guys are so focused on the hands and arms, you're ignoring how much more dynamic the poorly drawn bodies are, conveying motion, despite being a piss poor illustration, than Mythic LEgion's simplistic up and down posing. Mythic LEgion's engineering is so outdated that the hands are only the first glaring problems.
Just look at >>11015721 to see how embarassingly bad the figures are if you want to try and make them look dynamic. It's 90s era poseability.

This is why my troll is basically a backdrop in my photos, because of how shit the articulation is. Nice sculpt, but it's a McStatue when it comes to playability and poseability.

If budget wasn't so shot and space not an issue, I would love to own that beast. But sadly life happens and this is a toy that I'll just have to admire from other anon's pics.

Nobody expected Monkey King or Egyptian Gods, so I wouldn't rule out Aztecs just yet. Who knows what random ideas they'll drop in the next wave or FO or miscellaneous other releases they do.

It is forbidden excerpt for the scribes that mark it and the God who read it.

Damn, thought the Anubi were kinda expensive and only really care about heads.
But now these Unreal Tournament egyptians are looking based as hell.
I got the scorpion lady because she reminded me a bit of lilith too. Sadly her colours are a bit too drab and desaturated. She looks very grayish instead of having the colours pop.

Gonna pick up my Kalian Shunners now. Hope she looks better. Wish me luck.

Yea, the Egyptian god heads work WAY too well with the Cosmic stuff to the point I may have to steal some of those looks myself.

Also opened up my Kalian and she's....kinda disappointing in all the ways I expected to be disappointing, and one was which was a bit of a surprise honestly.

Overall the tabard chest look works, the should strap and the long hair cover the medieval looking bits enough that I can see it as a space armor thing. But the armored arm, as I was worried about, just looks silly. Maybe if it was colored differently it'd blend in more, but as is, the thing just don't gel well with the space aesthetic. Her loadout is also expectedly uninteresting, and her pauldron just does not look good on her. But I can fix the gear with spare weapons I have and I can just ignore the pauldron.

However, my biggest surprise is how the cloak does *not* work with the unmasked head. Like, it won't even fit on her neck. Hell, it barely even fits on the helmeted head. It uses a velcro connection but the collar is so long it's actually longer then the neck. I may have to add my own snap/latch to it so it actually fits better.

Also, be careful with the staff, it overstretched the vertical hinge hand on mine. It bounced back with some clamping down for a bit, but I fear it could be an issue if left for a long time.
