But we completely lost some appeals of the figure like the coat and folded arms. It would've been cool to have a 'lead' naruto figure with a bunch of the 'basic' original figures as shadow clones.
At least the orange is brighter and rasen-shiruken is accurate. I'm secretly hoping the coat is still there

I'm hoping the coat will at least be a first-run bonus. I can live without the scroll, but I"m completely passing on the figure without the coat.

While watching the great Captain America's back, it is the favorite hero polish a man every day Y (in training). MARVEL of the new movie "Civil War / Captain America" (April 29, published 2016) go on a spree of violence (the difference in not) in a sample of cap latest figures I received from the North Atlantic of the glacier (a lie). My hero stands up again! Please the excitement of the review! We want first appeal featured are inherited from the "Winter Soldier" evolution of hybrid military costume . If Nagamere the Standups, is satisfied with the silhouette clumsy and toughness has increased. The presence or absence, Korezo unbeaten fronts style! Shiny fresh texture of the body. Compared to the Age of Urutoron version, somehow a little macho feel is ... it becomes or wardrobe is trained in preparation for a new crisis? Big brother! Well this time of armed fashion, such as by extending the line of the star is a symbol of the cap to the chest part detail is added, micelles in bitter upgrade. Boots minor change. Man says in the back in silence! I enjoyed this cut. And CW version of the centerpiece, the real face of the cap head included! The honest and orthodox handsome face force of Chris Evans aka Steve Rogers, faithfully reproduced by digital coloring technique! Sorrow of beleaguered heroes are also tinged ... Speaking of the cap, physical burns action poses the greatest charm. While become tattered also, to aggressive while imagining a cap run around the battlefield to freely I play Gashigashi! !

Not sure if anybody really even needs this, but I included a WCF Kid Goku in my mandarake purchase out of curiosity to see if it scales with SHF. After seeing the shitfest that is the upcoming SHF Kid Goku, I figured I would look for an alternative. I like how it looks with the bigger figures, but draw your own conclusions.

Man, Bandai sure is weird.

I guess the next release will be Terry and hopefully Ramenman...

Kamehame is my Kinniku Great. He's the only one in my heart. Kinda wish this Great had a Kamehame head as well, seeing as how they're wearing the exact same thing, as Terry took his place.

AND WHAT? BIG THE NEPTUNE BUDO KING LOOKS AMAZING. I'm so scared his price will skyrocket and am debating waiting or not. Hopefully Ninja will give an idea of how the exclusives post release.
>>
>>5424956
They're biding their time. They released a good few of the heavy hitters already so they're saving up some of the last ones for obviously regular releases. Terryman and Ramenman are sure sellers. Then we have Mongolman who's gonna also sell well. Speaking of, hopefully he comes with a set of tag team gear for Buffaloman.

Does anyone have the Ultra-Act x S.H. Figuarts Ultraman?

If so, how is he? Should I pass or is he worth it?
>>
>>5425333
Pass on the first release. Second comes with an unmasked head and metallic silver paint and a stand.
>>
>>5425333
If you're going to do it, get the Special ver.

I honestly think the articulation is ass. The ankle joints are pefectly visible but barely move. The waist is difficult because of his tall hips and pointy abdomen. Wrist joints are basically swivels.

Proportions also look worse than the original prototype.
>>
>>5425348
yeah looked into it.

Will the second release come with plain and slashing/sweeping armblade effect parts for his gauntlets, or just the slashing/sweeping effect parts?

From the press photos it seems like the latter may be the case and we won't get the plain effect parts with the special edition

This is what I was afraid of after reading a few reviews, but honestly my standards for articulation in action figures have been set by Hasbro's Star Wars Black Series, so saying those standards are low is an understatement.

I'm just amazed this thing has toe articulation at this point.

Nothing beats S.H, Figuarts Trunks (1st release); by far have the most face & hand parts of any figures release so far. Quality of the sculpt aside, we will probably never see a jam-packed release like that again, even the "re-release" shy away from including the full content. Pic: left side is 1st release.

>>5425895
I just picked up RotJ Luke and the face in-hand is about a million times better than photos had led me to expect.

Nuu is a poor example though, he always seems to photograph his figures in the most unflattering way possible. Usually if I see a figure in one of his reviews and still want to buy it, it ends up looking way better in-hand.

The funny thing is that kid Goku and Gohan are both abput the same age there. Actually Goku might've been a little older in the beginning than gohan was in Cell saga.

He was 5'7

So he should be 5.7 inches tall. Not 5.5 like the figma.

>>5425944
You don't understand decimals or feet, do you?

Alright I fucked up. But he should still be taller than 5.5 inches, because that translates to 5'6"

Makes me wonder wonder is up with the first Luke Skywalker SHF. He so dang out of scale, even compared to other SW SHFs so far. And Hamill is supposedly the same height as Lee.

I wonder if the New Hope version will be more proper with scaling with the other movie stars/celebrity SHFs.

The one I'm most excited, pending on what the costume will be, is Spider-man. If they don't fuck up the costume and stay on the track ASM 2 started, it could be the best Spider-man figure ever. Movie realization Spider-man seems to hint that they have the ability to do Spidey figures at any rate.I just wish Bandai was more open to doing comic figures like sentinel.

>>5425986
I think with the star wars SHF they started scaling them closer to the Hasbro 6" line to compete.

Vader and Stormtrooper from the SHF line are so small compared to their Black Series counterparts, Vader especially, so I think after those two were made, Bandai made the conscious decision to upscale them a bit. Which is why Luke is the same height as the SHF Vader even though they're a foot apart in height in the movie,
>>
>>5425906
oh shit, I forgot about that

I wonder if we're going to get Mongolman before Ramenman
>>
>>5426150
>>5426153
Fair enough. I also don't think that with exception to the first releases (Vader and Stormtrooper) the Star Wars SHFiguarts are made to scale with other SHFiguarts, too.

My Luke and Maul are massive when standing beside my Zyuurangers or Kamen Rider but they scale perfectly against Hasbro's Black Series Star Wars figures.

The 6" scale in general is really wacky and none of it really adds up. Even within companies they don't really get it right. Try standing a Black Series and Marvel legends figure side by side, both from hasbro, and you understand what I mean.
>>
>>5426153
For you

>>5426154
I'm just waiting for the inevitable 'Darth Vader Renewal Empire Strikes Back Version' and 'Stormtrooper Renewal A New Hope Version'...

It'd be really neat if Bandai did a super-accurate Sandtrooper that's closer in size and articulation to the FO Troopers, then retooled it into a Stormtrooper.
>>
>>5426169
I want ANH Vader, with the tunic overlapping the shoulder armor.

>>5426171
That would be pretty sweet, actually. Even better if they made the eyepieces out of brown translucent plastic.

YES. I want an SHFiguarts Vader the size of the MAFEX one.

Bandai's unspoken policy of not using soft goods is great, I hate soft goods at this scale.

Also a stormtrooper with a not so cartoonish helmet and with flat lenses would be great,

Right looks like an Ultron-lite version of an Iron Man suit, while left looks like an Iron Man-lite version of right (basically, he looks more Iron Man now). I like both honestly, since they complement their respective film sources.

>>
>>5425011
>>5425019
I can really see that they ramped up the angularity in the left one to make him more of a clear villain design. The 45 was the first design of movie Iron Man I really liked since Mk6, with the main Avengers 1, IM 3, and Mk43 looking like they tried way to hard to be different from the Mk6, which felt like perfection. Overall left seems a bit awkward since its almost like the Mk 45 proportioned like the older suits. I can see them further refining it so that it becomes more and more of its own thing, though.

>>5426561
I love mixing up my Figuarts/Mafex/Figma when the need arises, so I'm definitely excited for this one.

Most of the Mafex sculpts tend to look as close as they've been shown in their proto photos. The bad thing about that is if the sculpt looked like shit on the prototype (i.e. it looks off or the details are soft), then it's not gonna get any better on the final product.

>>5426348
honestly i dont get the hate for the figma bruce. I think it's a solid B figure. Nothing amazing but nothing totally terrible.

Besides Bruce figures are few and far betwee.
>>
>>5427638
It's not bad, and the likeness is okay in the way that it looks like a simplified caricature of Bruce Lee. I just think the crotch sculpt kinda ruins the overall look of the figure which gives it that unintended derpiness.
>>
I missed out on the pre-order for Bruce Lee and want the figure desperately. Does anyone know anywhere I can still get it for its regular price? Or if the $65 prices on Amazon are trustworthy? Thanks.
>>
>>5427664
Your options right now:
1. Camp amiami and HLJ, pray that someone cancels their order/doesn't pay, and that it's re-listed
2. Stalk mandarake
3. Wait for the inevitable re-release, or the inevitable slight alteration release with bleeding cut marks (probably p-bandai), or the inevitable yellow jumpsuit release

$65 isn't bad if you want to guarantee the purchase, though. I ended up paying $46 for mine to be shipped from amiami, so a $19 latecomers tax for you isn't killer all things considered.

Is the articulation on the Love Live figuarts the same as figma? Cause I just got a Kylo and I love how much articulation he has. It bugs me how much articulation figma stuff lacks.

Maybe they're just stalling so the main releases are more spread (and the line lasts longer overall), I guess. I dunno.
Honestly, I'm just glad they're going all the way with the Kinnikuman line. I thought it would have been the most popular characters and then -done-.

Makes me wonder if they'll do a little bit of Nisei eventually, too. The series wasn't popular with kids at the time, but surely the Kinnikuman fanbase wants some actual decent merch of it...?

So if my order says "Discontinued" does that mean the item itself is discontinued from further orders and I still got my order locked down, or does this mean my order's been cancelled? I have no idea what this means.

Hobbysearch I mean, not hobbylink duh.

Why are you expecting us to be HLJ's customer service?

>So if my order says "Discontinued" does that mean the item itself is discontinued

No. That reflects the item's current state. If HLJ canceled your order, you'd either have an email telling you so or it wouldn't actually be one of your open orders.

Figured all this shit out the first time I ever placed an HLJ order, and this was years before I thought to use /toy/ or social media to ask shit I didn't know. How do you people manage?

Seems I nabbed the last Bruce Lee preorder on BBTS.

Because I prefer sarcastic non-answers, apparently

Why would one ask something they do know? Wouldn't that be a redundant thing to do?
>>
>>5431654
>i expect everyone to provide me with answers rather than tasking myself with seeking out knowledge on my own
Pretty much sums up millennials.

>>5431654
Yes, it absolutely would be redundant. The point was learning to figure something out yourself instead of looking like a complete moron.

You're a grown man. Figure things out for yourself. Once you do, you'll feel more accomplished than you would from asking for help on a Korean knitting board

I have alll 3 relese so far, Naruto was mediocre, Sasuke was mediocre but above naruto abit, Kakashi is the best so far, he has Awekening Goku's joint technology. the Sage mode Naruto looks like they updated his knees, I'm not sure yet so I'll wait for more pics since I want the red cloak and summoning scroll to go with him.

Just picked up the MMPR Black Ranger for 60 bucks shipped off eBay. Not too bad considering it's been what, a year since release and Pink/Yellow/Blue have gone up considerably higher.

Definitely. There's a guy on ebay that sells a soft goods vest for this look but I'd prefer a molded plastic version after seeing how well the Maul and Obi-Wan figures turned out.

Those figures are really spectacular.

Do the MMPR SHF even have bootlegs? And if they did, I'm sure they'd be much cheaper than the 10-15 bucks off what the Black Ranger regularly goes for.

what's the most GI JOE'esque figure from figuarts?
>>
Man, is it just me or do the elbow and knee pads on newer figuarts fall off way easier than the older ones? The kneecap on my FO stormtrooper just popped off as I was moving the leg, and if I hadn't noticed it would have been lost in the void that is my carpet. The same thing's happened with new kuuga and kabuto, as well as captain america. I'm tempted to just glue these fuckers on.
>>
>>5433563
I glued my cap's one elbow pad in because it was super loose, I might do the other one if it gets loose too.
>>
I ordered an OT stormtrooper from Mandarake in a drunken stupor, what am I in for?

Unlikely, I only drink with a friend I see three times a year.

I'm looking at reviews at the moment, I'm getting a strong feeling I might be Ebaying this figure the moment it arrives and putting the money towards another two First Order troopers.

Emailing mandarake and cancelling the payment?

Yeah, I just got mine in the other day. (Bluefin release from toywiz, since I panicked after having my amazon preorder cancelled and couldn't find her anywhere.)
I was pretty disappointed by her, honestly. The paint apps on mine look like they had to repaint her without wiping the paint underneath (she looks like there are paint chips under her paint if that makes sense). Also, her hair is not the softer material like Venus/Mars. It's more of a brittle ABS plastic plate, which is worrysome.

Didn't know what this was from and thought it looked interesting. Apparently it's the female half of a character? Are they releasing the male half?

Yeah, we're hoping for the male half soon.

Should I check out the show if I'm interested in the figure?
>>
>>5434199
Go for it. It's a decent comedy series.
>>
>>5434199
I've started rewatching it recently. It's long. Maybe watch a couple of episodes and see if you like it. The figures look off to me for some reason, but they still look like fun.

>>5434184
Holy god.

On a malaysian cartoon image board, it's kind of ridiculous not to know something as recognizable as that. That's like a driver not knowing what a stop sign looks like.

I paid up for it, they sent the payment request through this morning. I've only ever cancelled one Mandarake order and I intend not to cancel more, I wouldn't be able to keep up this hobby without them.

>>5434146
Will most likely flip it at cost on Ebay once it arrives. I've been looking at photos and reviews and I can't believe how much they fucked it up vs the prototype.

>Square cutouts on arms (present on prototype) totally absent
>Belt fastening stud (again present on prototype) gone
>That fucking helmet
>Only one gun
>No holster
>Gimped articulation

Looking at the prototype Vader and troopers again, whoever was calling the shots on these releases and had the prototypes changed should be taken out and birched.
>>
>>5434358
Are all of those figuarts? They look nothing like the actual releases.
>>
>>5434363
Yes, those are the original prototypes they showed off. Those versions appeared at a couple of shows then were mysteriously retooled into what we ended up getting.
>>
>>5434363
Exactly, the final release has a bunch of details removed.
Guess most people missed that with the helmet issue.
>>
>>5434373
Another thing that's accurate on the prototypes but not the finished figures is the torso greebling correctly disappearing into the line of the belt.

On the final release they inaccurately just seem to float there.
>>
>>5434379
Might have been a accommodation for waist articulation? That's the only reason I can think of.

I'm not sure if you realize this yet, but kids that were born when it aired are becoming adults.

And even they've fucking seen Ranma. The only reason not to know Ranma is if you're five years old.
