Bear in mind that yo is a pussy-ass that thinks it's okay for women to get alimony and custody by default in a divorce, or that men should pay child support without even a paternity test. Not all MRAs are the "women belong in the kitchen" /pol/-smokers.
>>5376627 OAFE is like that one guy who never left the early 2000's. It's pretty much Yo Go Re at this point, really, and Rustin Parr's hoarder posts(seriously, people make fun of Winslow Schott here, but Rustin Parr is just buying like $100 worth of garbage at Toys R Us every week. He's like what I would be if I had a decent job at 15 and no internet access.) It's like Japanese toys fell off the radar for him when Suncoast and Sam goody closed. It's like he's just accepted the drastic decrease in most western toys(barring Neca) and hasn't noticed just how far things have fallen, like a frog being boiled slowly. When the subject of Japanese toys or Hot toys are brought up, he just seems to have a sour grapes attitude. His Jakks link review had something to the effect of "Why pay 4 times more for a Japanese figure when you have something almost as good for $10?".
Meanwhile, Michael Crawford of MWC toy reviews progressed with the times very well. He was always ahead of the curve with HT releases, and while he doesn't feature Japanese figures much on his site,he doesn't bother with most kiddie lines and only focuses on decent quality stuff.
That's a pretty apt description of OAFE, really. They used to be pretty decent, but now it seems they're trying to use radio-shock controvery techniques to be relevant (either writing something outrageous or stupid or SJW), but it just comes off as annoying and takes away from looking at toys (which they barely do in their reviews anymore).
Look, I don't give a fuck what their beliefs or views are, or what their personal spending habits are - I go there to read toy reviews. If they can do that job right, they're alright by me, and they do that job very well.
>>5377118 >the drastic decrease in most western toys(barring Neca)
it's hard to fall when you're already at the bottom
>"Why pay 4 times more for a Japanese figure when you have something almost as good for $10?".
I do agree with this- the improvements are minor overall, and if you're just going to plop it on a shelf to collect dust and decorate the place, then paying more is pointless. Not all of us give a shit about MUH WEEABOO toys or think they're better just because they cost more. If Subjectanon is a GEEWUner, you're a REEDUNer- just as bad about the subject, only on the opposite side.
>>5379081 The ONLY reason I know what the fuck you're going on about is because I was a former transfag myself. Transsfags are like autists in that they'll go on about things they assume everyone else knows about. In this case Geewun/Reedun, which, for people who don't collect Wal-mart toys exclusively, refers to the differences in updates of old Transformers toys from the 80's. This particular autist has attempted to push a meme in which the new designs are referred to as "REEDUN". This is because updating a character to be a modern looking car instead of an old car model is a criminal offense to this person. Pity him.
>>5379081 > If Subjectanon is a GEEWUner wat? I've bought like 5 Transformer toys in 20 years and I think the only time I've posted in a TF thread in the past year was to ask about the Waspinator figure that came with the comic. I really don't care for TF stuff , muchless give a shit about g1 crap.

I agree with the second part of your statement. There's not much point paying more for something you're just going to display and ignore. Not unless you can afford it anyway.
I disagree with the first statement that Weaboo Link is only slightly better than Jakks Link though. My view is that Weaboo Link is notably better than Jakks link, particularly in terms of looks.
That being said, for international /toy/ soldiers such as myself, getting a Jakks isn't necessarily much cheaper than getting a Weaboo. Of course, if you live in the US where Jakks is significantly cheaper, then I can agree that the improvements might not justify the price difference.
