Nothing triggers me more than people putting their figures in front of a TV. Might as well put them in front of a fucking window.
Toy collecting pet peeves thread, I guess.
I don't see the problem, aside the giant clusterfuck
It's not like they're blocking the viewing screen and TVs really don't give off anything harmful except for heat, and most flatscreens today don't produce enough to cause damage.
Because they're obnoxious, stupid as fuck and refuse to get smarter about the toy industry, and their toys are just awful in general.
Seriously, who other than literal children and maybe a couple dogs that need something to chew on actually likes Jakk's Pacific and Jazwares shit?
And then there's Amiibo's, which are just videogame accessories, not toys, yet they get a free pass on here for whatever reason. They're closer to /tg/ than /toy/
>Posing a figure with a stand when it clearly doesn't need it.
>Keeping toys in the boxes.
>People calling others normies because they aren't sperglords like them.
I hate when people think amiibo are the only form of Nintendo merchandise out there. I remember seeing people make petitions for Nintendo to produce a Satoru Iwata amiibo when he passed away.
>>Posing a figure with a stand when it clearly doesn't need it.
This one actually makes a lot of sense. Very few figures are really stable enough to leave long term in anything that isn't a stuff standing pose. When I have mine on display, I almost always have a stand attached to them.

>Because they're obnoxious
You mean 99% of this board?
Also hello newfag. The reason that most of the spergs on this board get mad about /v/ is figma Link because of all the threads people from /v/ made about it before and after it was released.
Also if you're still mad about amiibos you're autismal as fuck. The mods don't agree with you so give it up.
/a/ and /jp/ are accepted because this entire site is kind of based on them. It'd be like going onto the gamefaqs off-topic boards and complaining that people talk about games so much.
Most boards hate /v/. /v/ is babby's first board right along with /b/ and when they venture outside of their board, they usually make it incredibly obvious that they're from /v/, shoehorning video game discussion wherever they go, regardless of whether it's on topic or not. And as much as I hate when people complain about spoonfeeding, /v/irgins don't even bother reading comment chains before asking the same question again and again since they're used to a board moving so fast. Go check out the archives about the Link figma and notice that not only did several people ask the same already answered, already explained question several times, there were even a few extra threads made solely to ask this already answered question.
>Because they're obnoxious, stupid as fuck and refuse to get smarter about the toy industry
Just like how /toy/ is obnoxious, stupid as fuck and refuse to get smarter about the gaming industry?
What board do you think you are on? See, this is why no one likes you /v/. You're like an immigrant.
You come to other boards, and only talk about video games. You don't see anyone go to /v/ and say "well actually the toy was like this so blah blah blah and I don't want to play the game because normies have this toy."
What's wrong with putting toys in front of a window?
I enjoy amiibo and pop at times
Better than the tacky transformers shit on this board, at least
This bothers me to no end. Me and my brother have these DBZ figures from 15 years ago, and he INSISTS on keeping them in the box. They have zero poseability, zero articulation. Nothing. They're faces look like dog shit but he is convinced they are worth crazy amounts of money.
What bugs me is when people put figures in front of the TV AND it covers a part of the screen. Even if it's just a tiny little par to of it.
Essentially I like my screens/monitors to be 100% visible. Other than that it doesn't bug me.
>Toy collecting pet peeves
What /toy/ has become.
Since the migration of /v/ this place has gone down the drain.
Not trying to be THAT guy but they've brought over their elitist mindset. There was a time when /toy/ was all inclusive and we didn't hate or get retarded mad over the smallest thing.
I guess others who are over critical of what other people have in their collection or even what they do with their collection, is a pet peeve of mine as well. The whole "don't like what I don't like" mentality. It's a downer.
This place used to be super cool and super chill, but it's not anymore. It's old news and I've said this sort of thing on here before. But it still sucks to think about.
Yeah! like, I personally don't keep anything in box, but I can sort of understand why in some cases, like a really cool and unique box, or the figures being arranged in a cool display. But sometimes I see literal children's toys kept in box, fucking black series and shit.
It's kind of annoying scrolling through a thread that's just filled with toxic sperging or over critisizing of what anons like or don't like. There can never be a mature discussion but sadly this is what most of 4chan has become.
I saw a post on here not that long where some anon threw an autistic fit because another anon's figma Link had his sword in the "wrong" hand. Shit is ridiculous.
I disagree. At least /a/ actually likes things. When was the last time /v/ liked a single video game? /a/ is incredibly elitist and everyone has a gatekeeper mentality, but at least they actually discuss and enjoy anime. Unlike /v/ that seems to exist solely to shitpost and hate things. lol threads are a perfect example of this. The only comic threads allowed on /v/ at all just exist to shitpost, make terrible comics, and whine about SJWs. More loss edits exist than the entire archive of ctrl+alt+delete.
>general sentiments and hive minds do not exist.
If you're sitting there with a straight face and telling me that /v/ doesn't hate the vast majority of games for little to no reason, I don't think you've ever actually been on that board.
>Frog posting instead of an argument
I dislike /v/ because /v/ is an incredibly negative board and you must hate things to fit in. They bring this negativity and nitpicking wherever they go. It's easier to pick out a /v/ crossboarder than any other board for a reason, you know.
Excuse my newfaggotry sempaitachi but what's this about not putting your toys in boxes when you are done playing with them?
I live in a small apartment and while there is no one else there but myself I always fear I might breK or loose something if I just leave my shit out
/v/ largely made up of people who come to this site, thinking that it's specifically for ruining the other posters time. They think any discussion or non-outright hostility is "reddit-tier"
They're also heavily infected with /pol/, though not as bad as /tv/, most topics are viewed through the lenses of conspiracy and suspicion
It's called having a proper display area. It sucks if you live in a cracker box and can't have one, but a display area is vastly superior to repacking shit in boxes when you're not useing it.
It doesn't matter how /v/ is on their shitty boards, it's how they behave on this board that matters. You think i fucking go to /v/ or /a/ or /jp/? Shit no.
>/a/ is incredibly elitist and everyone has a gatekeeper mentality
And that's why /a/ and /jp/ are shittier than /v/, because they bring this attitude to this board. As far as i can tell, the worst /v/ does to this board is making threads about video games and some assholes, like yourself, go into those threads to complain about /v/.
Again, who fucking cares if their own boards (/v/, /b/, /a/, whomever) are shit. It's when they bring that poison over to /toy/ that makes them worse. I can't think of any thread or post on /toy/ that was deleted about a video game subject, but something pertaining to japan? Almost every fucking day because of overreactions and sensitivity.
Keep your accessories elsewhere (in a plastic container, acid-free ziploc bags, etc) while they're out.
Store your toys in their boxes if you don't want to display them for whatever reason. No harm in keeping them out, assuming your living space is at least half-clean.
Agreed. /Co/ is just as bad as /v/ they just cry about 'sjw bogeymans' instead of 'muh games journalism ethics!'
Other than a few /toy/ specific trolls and the occasional stop liking what I don't like autism most people here actually like toys and want to discuss them.
I used to have tape on the joints of my old 12 inch McFarlane Xenomorph because the joints aren't stiff enough to support it in any pose for long before it collapses. Ended up wiring the tail to the base since the tape didn't hold forever either.
They have those new TVs that are slightly curved to create an illusion of immersion. So... either way he's fucking retarded.
Also, clearly the person with OP's collection is a gamer, and those are all gaming figures, so having them by the TV with all their gaming stuff makes sense.
I have my Disney 3.0 stuff in front of my TV.
Agreed. Its not hard to maintain a visually interesting but organized toy display. Dont have your toys all over the damn room. Keep them to a dedicated shelf. Dont put them in front of books, video games, televisions, computers, etc. Just leave some empty space around the toy on the shelf so its not a cluster fuck.
I only have three in front of my tv, and they don't block the screen or anything. What's the big deal?
Thank you, I also think it looks adorable. If I ever get my hands on a Mega Yarn Yoshi, I'll probably have him peeking over the top of the tv!
My room in my college apartment isn't very homey at this moment in time, so I need something to make me smile.
