Will we ever see a figure from this movie? Would it even be marketable?
>make a dope figure of astronaut guy in any scale
>it sells out fast as fuck
This will never happen because it would be a good idea. I could see neca producing this but they actively avoid good franchises made after 1990
Suits were pretty cool, if Hot Toys made it I'd buy one and keep the helmet on, not all that thrilled to buy a Matthew Mcconaughey figure. If they made an Ann Hathaway and nailed the headsculpt, I'd leave the helmet off.
Like everyone else, I want a fucking Tars. There is a vast hoard of money to be made there, and it wouldn't even be that hard. You really just need four beams that rotate around an axis, and some detachable manipulator limbs.
>might compromise the looks of the toy
>a toy might look inferior to the prop because a toy needs part swapping addons and shouldn't be fun and transforming like how the robots were in the film
you have no imagination
>they could do both
>implying people wouldn't just want a popvinyl static block of plastic because its a brand everyone enjoys
No one enjoys taking risks anymore huh? Lets hope space aliens from the future hear our love and send us one.
That sentence is contradictory. The robots were made to be easy to maintain/build and weren't splashed in fancy colors just block letters to identify which is which. So the idea of a company making a simple toy with rotating arms and features in the toy would be a more idealized version of them because a fancy collected edition, statue, would just capture a moment in the film when a mere childs toy could work as a custom army builder or even be something one could carry around in the pocket to fiddle around with whenever.
I get what you're saying, and respect it, but if if you offer an adult collector two toys:
A. Looks like a Hasbro product, all unpainted grey PVC with some tampos for screens, but has transforming arms
B. Brushed metal look with printed displays under acrylic sheets to simulate screens and weathering to reflect damage taken in the film, but has swappable arms
Which do you think they'll choose? Aesthetics DO matter to most folks, even if you want to play by the rules that making the toy in a utilitarian way matches the philosophy of the bots in the film.
Nah man its really simple' do you care about the idea and execution of the film you watched or was it because of the film you watched that the robots were good? You realize after cooper gets back to the space station he just makes another one, kipp, and we hardly get to know what kind of character he is because he only has a few lines of dialogue. I imagine anyone would even remember kipp's name because they are replaceable and merely tools to serve mankind
who said statue? I mean t a well done toy, like a hot toys or a threea. They aren't super "playable" but they're poseable and capture the look of what they are.
>They aren't super "playable
They are test robots in a game about portals with no interesting folding gimmick like the superior bots from intergalatic had, just walking and high fiving because it makes funny videos for the community to giggle about. Also it doesn't help that 3A and neca use brittle plastic that crack easily because of the child safety laws they have to adhere to. Wait, 3A has that 'this is not a toy only for ages 15 and over' warning on all their boxes. Scratch that.
>Of course someone wants a toy
They should make one, out of lego because its easier than mold making and resin work
>they thought the robot looked cool
Cool because it was a rectangle box or cool because it was a rectangle box that could fold out and transform and do neat things like have arms come and and little lever arms to control joysticks with?
>are you demdaning that all toys of it also move around by themselves?
>It could also move around by itself
wow' you sure can't separate what happened in the film to what I expect a toy to be able to replicate, like transforming or something. Thats just crazy, right? To expect a toy that could simulate what happened in a film?
>only transformers fans care about "partsforming"
I would too, seeing how the robots could transform limbs and such and not rely on part swapping. Its like they were designed to be multifuncitonal
Same way optibotimus said these panels on the ede can't move when they do in the movie. I'm betting the hot toys will be able to though
Ahhh. why can't we just get a /collector/ board so we can peacefully discuss high end collectables and not have trolls hate on something because it' wouldn't be very fun as a toy to play with like their 5 bucks transformers.
We would have gotten toys had it been released in the 90s.
there were a couple different astronaut figures from Doctor Who, one 5" and one 8" Mego-style
Mega Bloks's Call of Duty line has some mini astronauts and a satellite
and I also found this guy, the "Moonbase Omega Commander Nightshade Strigoi" from 3A
This movie was really good. I don't know what people have to be disappointed about. Just be open minded and I can't see how you won't enjoy it.
It's not some cliche shitty action movie, and it's not a hardcore science oriented movie, either – it's more an experience, but there's plenty of good story and thrills to be had...not to mention some emotional stirring. Mmm...emotion soup.
I loved it. When Anne Hathaway mentions love, remember it.
>caring about reviewer's/anyone else's opinion
If a trailer makes something look good enough, I will check it out...I will look at RT just to make sure it's not a complete disaster.
Well I enjoyed it. Must say I did raise an eyebrow a few times towards the end really, but I think it was still pretty good. Catwoman rumbling about love to tie stuff together was still a bit weird though.
Didn't they say at the end of the movie that they did actually like it, it just wasn't perfect. Not to mention, digging on as many flaws in a movie that they can find is kind of their schtick. They're the Yahtzee of movies, dude.
I'd love me some bot figures, but at the very least we're getting a model of the Ranger.
>TARS best brobot of all time
That's a pretty tall order to fill and I'm not all the way there with out, but I'd certainly buy an action figure in a heartbeat.
I would only want toys of the movie if it can pass through the 5th dimension and create a physical representation of time. But no, I could see NECA making toys from it, and at the very least I would get TARS or CASE
I will never get a good Anne Waifuway figure...
