I bought this stupid DIY dunny at comic con 2 years ago and had some artist that im not even familiar with customize it. I only spent like $20, but its just sat in my closet ever since then. I looked at like a year ago and noticed that the sharpie the dude used had bled into the vinyl a lot. I threw it away today.
Also every thing marvel. Not that they are bad toys, they just were not right for me.
Hell, all my GFF/Zeonagraphy are let downs, but Z hit me the hardest.
I should have just bought the gunpla, at least then it wouldn't look as rediculous with its Katoki porportions and would have an excuse to fall aparrt if I glance angrily at it from across the room or a breeze makes it combust.
I disliked my Tomoko nendoroid shortly after I got it because I bought it without thinking (it's my only impulse purchase) I even wrote a note that said "constant reminder not to buy shit" and put it next to her on display.
I really like her now though, I like having her my collection. It's also a reminder to not make any more impulse purchases.
>>4524425 Me too. I went thpugh 2 p-bodies before i got one i thought would hold up. But as soon as i moved his leg the entire slab of plastic the legs were on snapped off. A lot of joints were glued in place. Biggest regret ever.
>>4524403 From what I've heard, the paint and sculpt are decent but the articulation is a little lacking. Then again, the Revo's articulation is complete bullshit anyways, so I'm not sure it's that big of a difference.
>>4524269 Every black series figure. Subpar articulation that looks weird when posed. Who the fuck thought the necks were a good idea when they started doing them on MLs? Such limited articulation that looks goofy from the side. Just do a double balljoint you fucking retards.
>>4524269 What did you not like about revo Raiden? I impulse bought one and it was my first revo, of course the first few days were nothing but frustration with the stupid joints but after taking my time with it I learnt to pose it and it looks awesome 99% of the time
I know it's beating a dead horse at this point, but every single PAK I ever bought. I was so excited at first, then disappointed when I opened them, and that slowly slid downhill over time into resentment. I actually probably wouldn't hate them as much if they weren't so expensive, it's a double slap in the face when you get a bad toy AND it cost a lot.
>>4524269 I kinda regret buying the first few, glossy Revoltechs. I left them on display, then realized that my room was too hot, too humid and too sunshiny for them. All of them became goey with plasticizers leaking.
>>4525606 I pretty much regret the Figma Avengers. They're probably still the best looking toys of the characters, but they're a bit of a let down considering how incredibly expensive they were. Incredibly loose joints, mushy faces and they're not even correctly in scale with one another.
They look fine displayed properly, but knowing the SHF's are coming, which will probably look better, be better to pose AND be cheaper...
>>4525678 Their face sculpts have improved a lot with recent releases, the Injustice stuff looks incredible. I almost hope they go with similar looking stylised faces for the Avengers though, instead of trying to nail the realistic look. Either way, they shouldn't look as mushy and undefined as the Figma's.
This shit right here. Sold it and never regret it even after the slight surge of popularity that was caused by the live action movies. Thank god i didnt buy the Kenshin version too. I hope someone do better Rurouni Kenshin figures in the future.
>>4524269 this guy. not that its a bad figure but it was one of my first impulse buys and it really doesn't fir with anything i collect. it currently remains in its box along with everything else which has failed to remain relivent to my interests. anyone else feel this way? i remember i wasnt the only one how impulse bought this.
i regret buying some halo figures i got. joints were complete shit, i couldnt even see a kid playing with them because they were either really hard to move or so loose they could easily be broken. i ended up selling them. the new halo 4 figures are great, though! they have joints similar to revoltechs! its awesome! they just look ugly as all hell
also not really regret but was really underwhelmed by the PAK cloud with the hardy daytona. really nice detail on the bike, i almost wanted to keep it just for the bike but i ended up selling them off and made a small profit off of it. the guy i sold it to was a vendor at the con i was selling it at (i was in a flea market selling it) also and i knew he was just going to put it on his shelf and sell it for what it goes for on ebay. its been a year now and he's still trying to get $130 for the fucking thing. used.
>>4526121 So the Halo 4 figures are pretty okay? There's a Master Chief at my local Walgreens I've been thinking about buying just because, but I didn't want to get him if I was going to end up not liking him.
Marvel Legends Black Cat. She can't stand for shit, and she looks like a miniature sex doll. I got caught up in the hype and bought her partly because she's been so scarce on the pegs, but now that I have the toy, I'd be embarrassed for anyone to see her in my home.
God, yeah, this. I remember opening up Springer and thinking it was the best Voyager I'd ever seen...and then opening up Blitzwing and being just completely dumbfounded with how the same team produced something so utterly shit in the exact same wave.
>>4525720 I bought both from HLJ about three years ago, the one pictured wrist broke upon unboxing. I sold Kenshin (red) a few months later for fear of the same thing happening. I think the figure is fine, just the stick loops attached to the hand are very fragile, which made me fearful of purchasing another Revoltech for the next couple years.
>>4526744 I can't speak for Mazinkaiser, as I don't own him, but at least on Shin Getter, the way the hip joints are made simply seems to be rather loose. And mind you, they're not actually "loose," like the figure has no problem standing or posing, it just can't support the weight of the legs in kicking poses and shit.
BUT--my real point is, I have a bunch of other SRCs that can support their weight just fine despite having loads of leg diecast. For example, SRC Dekaranger Robo, Alteisen, and Gurren Lagann. All of them have tight and solid hips and knees and ankles that can hold leg poses just fine. All three have prominent amounts of diecast in their leg/shin areas. In fact, the Alteisen probably has the chunkiest diecast pieces of all, and its hips can support them just fine, even in kicking poses.
I think it's just based on the particular design. Unfortunate that you got some of the loose-hipped variety, but just letting you know, the entire line isn't like that.
The Command Patroller is.... well, it doesn't suck. It's pretty neat and generic enough you could use it with lots of things. They also tend to cost fairly little, factoring a good chunk of the cost goes into postage. There's not a huge demand for them
The major downside though is that it's HUGE. It's not USS Flagg huge, but it's a 2' long chunk of plastic that's more than 1' wide and about 1' tall. This is why I'm less than thrilled- I barely have display room, and it's far too big, heavy and chunky just to take down off the shelf and play around with it. It's also a bit hollow and simple in terms of gimmicks since it is mostly just a big piece of white plastic with some wheels attached. I suppose you could use the empty back compartment to add in a motor but you'd need a powerful motor to drive this thing. It'd also be a bit nicer if the driver robot wasn't totally submerged inside the front compartment.
I actually just sold mine off, recouped what I paid though as I got it cheap to start with.
Figma Pit and Dark Pit Figma Roger Smith and Dorothy SH Figuarts Mario Revoltech Evo Evangelion Revoltech Woody and Buzz PAK Cyborg Ninja
Those all come to mind, but fortunately I was able to resell them and pretty much break even in the end. Figma Pit, Figma Dark Pit, and cyborg ninja were disappoints given their hype/price. I generally like Revoltech releases but I quickly replaced the Revoltech Eva stuff with the vastly superior RD versions. Also Woody and Buzz are just too small and overpriced for their size. /end blog
>>4526808 Not true for all revos. Snake and Raiden have peg hands just like Kenshin. Revo mini snake and cyborg ninja have the same peg hands as well. If anything the newer revos may be exclusively this now, although you are right about 4mm and 6mm bring standard some time ago.
>>4529183 Well, note that I said "most," not "all." And I would guess that the Mini line is going with that wrist style largely because it's the best compromise of articulation and compactness for a small scale figure.
Figma Strength TV Animation Version. The Robot Hands are too fucking heavy to do anything with and are a bitch and a half to pose.
NECA Coyote Tango. it's probably the worst of the jaegers, competing with Striker Eureka. It's top heavy and the articulation is limited.
Blaze Raven Robot Damashii. The lack of accessories didn't bother me nearly as much as the completely shit balance. Aside from Figma Strength, I've never seen a figure that needed a stand so badly to pose.
>>4529255 Not mine but look for non-studio pictures.
The color is muted for one, it poses like poo, it cant stand up (which is weird because i have revoltechs and ive never had this problem), the flaps in his hands fall off if a butterfly flaps its wings in venezuela, the hands dont stay in for some reason, i dont know know what else to tell you....
for 20 dlls, its an OK figure, if you can get him cheap go for it, if not stay away.
This big bastard, he's not much more than a solid chunk of diecast. I can live with most of his flaws, but I'm still torn up on how they split the missile and bazooka gimmicks over two figures, like hell I'm buying a second one just for a gun. Maybe Bandai will revive that SRC someday...
Anyway, I bought a bunch of Haruhi figmas because they were dirt cheap. They don't really do much since they're super early releases. I didn't even buy all of the cast, just Haruhi, Mikuru and both Tsuruyas.
Maybe they'd be more fun if I had a Nagato as well. I don't know.
>>4537242 I'm not OP obviously, but just so you know, the majority of people loved this figure. I've only seen a handful of folks who didn't like it, and it usually came down to:
- Didn't like Revolver joints - Didn't like stylized facesculpt - OHSHIT I DROPPED HIS EARS AND LOST THEM
I love him, personally. He's a great figure with a nice dynamic look to him and a huge range of movement. Just be careful with the sides of his mask ("ears") as they fall off easily and are small pieces so they're easy to lose.
Ironhide Also, I dont have any pictures saved on here,but those stupid little The Loyal Subject vinyl figures. I should have stopped with Prime and Megatron, but now I have Grimlock and Jazz. Ill never get Bumblebee, Soundwave, or Starscream because my LCS stopped selling wave 1, and I dont care enoughabout the other characters in the waves to buy them. worst ever
The TFC Dinobots were a huge let-down. >combiner ports barely work >joints either too loose or too tight >ugly colors >awful robot modes >stupid weapons And to think this is the only Third Party Transformer thing I own. Damn shame.
>>4537552 Ironhide was a mess. I like the mold itself, and it feels like they at least stepped things up with Ratchet, but the red van was a nightmare. The blue face issue aside, the paint they used on his upper half got sticky and just sort of sloughed off at room temperature.
Also, there's a MAFEX bat pod coming out eventually that I'm vaguely interested in. I never got the Mattel one, and it goes for 80+ bucks on the aftermarket these days anyways, so I don't see why I shouldn't go for the new one instead. I really like how their Catwoman looks, too.
>>4524269 Revoltech mini Asuka Foot hole won't even fit on the stand and the hair makes it impossible for the head to stay on unless she looks directly at the fucking floor. It was only like 3 bucks though.
>>4526121 Goddamn, I remember being a young teen that was really into the Halo story and gettign so excited when I got my figure of Brute Chieftain. Its wrists snapped as soon as I tried to turn them and the rest broke in the same way. I was so mad. At least the couple spartans I got were okay. Lost two of them in the move and the Master Chief one broke though. Feels bad.
>>4537563 >Revoltech >loose joints Eh? That's the very thing the joints are engineered to guard against.
If you mean the swivels are loose, a little bit of Pledge in the holes will fix that. Also, make sure the joints are firmly pushed in all the way. I had a Revo once that seemed like it had really loose hips, and then I found out they weren't fully pushed in. I did that and then it was perfectly fine.
>>4537821 Replace em then. Revolver joints are sold in small packs, just buy the right size and pop em in there. Of course, you might not care enough to do so, but just sayin', there's ways to fix it. In fact, I think Casting Cave sells single Revolver joints, so you don't even need to buy a whole pack.
