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 ordered Captain Phasma the night it went up, and it STILL hasnt gotten here. Fuck these japanese figures. What the fuck are those lazy japs good for. How does it take over 3 months to ship out a toy. Im sticking with Funko, fuck Figuarts
>I ordered Captain Phasma the night it went up, and it STILL hasnt gotten here.
Troll or idiot, you decide.
Anybody grabbing this guy? Ive watched the animated series and thought it was alright, but I did rather like the anime armor designs.
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! ! Shield throwing pose is determined! Determined pat!
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.
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.
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.
I like left's body a little more, but right has a way better helmet.
Fucking Bandai, I'm still going to end up buying this virtually-identical-to-the-last-figure again like the good cuck I am...
>>Not being elated about the other Hell Missionary
But honestly, I'm really pumped for Niku Great.
Really loving how these guys look as a team. Kind of wish I had picked up a couple more troopers.
Guess I'll wait for the heavy gunners
You're not supposed to remove the heads on these figures unless they include swappable parts. Congratulations, you've ruined them! Who told you that you could remove Kylo Ren's scarf anyway? It's not shown removed in any official photos or showroom displays.
I really didn't like TFA but I love these Stromtroopers. I've got a couple too, but I need more. I've got TR-8R on preorder, hoping the Heavy Gunner isn't going to be another exclusive. I would love an officer figure with a pauldron, pistol and rifle with stock, exclusive or otherwise.
Does anyone have the Ultra-Act x S.H. Figuarts Ultraman?
If so, how is he? Should I pass or is he worth it?
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.
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
For clarity this is what I mean by "Plain effects"
...and this is what I mean by "Sweeping/Slashing" effects:
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.
Packaging on this one looks great. Can't see the angry bruce head though.
If this impresses you, you should see some of the Figma and Medicos SAS releases...
Has Bandai said anything about Manga color Kinnikuman toys? those are the ones I want
Robin Mask looks so wrong in blue..
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.
The only toy i know that comes with more faces than Trunks is Evolution Toy Ika Musume Super DX edition.
i dont even Ultraman, but damn is it sexyy
Nuu's Bruce Lee review: http://blog.livedoor.jp/hacchaka/archives/51970393.html
yeah, it is pretty weird that there's no Kamehame head too. I guess they went with the black suit look so it could be either of them, Rather than going with Kamehame's skin color
now that I think about it, I should get Budo for the Cross Bomber and so I have someone else to use Muscle Docking on
Wow..... figma Bruce Li looks really stupid when compared side to side with SHF's Bruce Lee. Cock punched!
Only thing I don't like how SHF Bruce turns out in the final product is the hand painted hair fringes on the front. Looks weird; should've been one piece with the hair part.
This is going in the reaction face folder...
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.
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.
2chan's thread for SHF Bruce Lee is up: http://nov.2chan.net/y/res/3469827.htm
Let's see what kind of shenanigans they could come up with.....
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.
1) Damn, I thought Bruce would scale better with Star Wars figs. He looks TIIINY
2) I thought these things had balljointed wrists. Seeing that this one doesn't is a little disappointing.
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,
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.
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.
Sucks to see that Nuu got shafted hard when it came to paint app on the faces.
Really hoping I will receive well applied paint app like pictured
Apologies for the delay, went around the block for the stupid Lucas amiibo for my bud's bro.
> fucking HASBRO got the effect pieces right
Why are yellow bolts allowed?
We'll see. Right now, we have boy Ranma and Akane prototypes.
Maybe we'll see new Ranma stuff at the next Wonfes or Tamashii Nations.
I'm hoping we get both the two others we've seen the two you listed, and Mousse for the whole group.
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.
The hood fit rather well over the helmet.
That looks great, though Im kind of worried about the range of motion in the elbows, as there seems to be very little clearance space for movement
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.
Has anyone else pre-ordered Ultron? Does he look to be worth the premium price he's going for?
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.
That pink lipped bastard and his rigid neck are not gonna be worth the premium price. He's looked super awkward in every photo. Get the Revoltech.
>>tfw a brief alter ego gets a figure before his real self
>or is it just F5-city on amiami for all of february
That unfortunately is probably your best bet.
If the preorders are sold out on figuarts it's pretty difficult to get a hold of one after its release.
I wish you the best, Anon.
Yes! I asked for this one or two threads ago! I guess we're just old and nobody else watched it
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.
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.
like with Niku having a Terryman head before he gets a figure of his own
what are they doing
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...?
When Bandai eventually makes Jabba's Palace Jedi Luke, I hope they articulate his torso like they did with this ANH Luke and Maul / Ep I Obi Wan
I certainly am. really loved the armour since the 1st ep. Wish it comes with a head part with a roaring expression but I'll take what I can get
whats the best figure to get as a bunch of goons for my bruce lee to beat up? obviously need em to be as real/human looking as the bruce lee.
either that or im gonna buy 4 more Bruce Lees and have them all attacking eachother.
Maybe MJ? You could treat him as a generic well-dressed criminal.
Anyone else's Stormtrooper have this look? The shoulders can't be shifted higher than this, makes them look too low. Could removing the inner shoulder cup fix it?
Crap, it uloaded sideways lemme try again
Oh I'm so sorry for posting a pose that you don't approve of. Wait, no I'm not, fuck off
If I had ordered the Bruce lee figure from HLJ and got an order confirmation that same night, what are the odds I don't get the figure? I looked and every other item thats sold out from preorders says order stopped, however this one says discontinued.
If you got your order in and a confirmation email then it's yours no matter whatever the front page says (unless you cancel or fail to pay).
I've heard stories of HLJ not having enough stock to cover their preorders but I've never had an issue.
Please tell me there's an Ant-man one coming after Cap and Iron Man. I've been dying to get my hands on a good Ant-man figure and I almost fucked up buying the marvel select one.
We all do.
I picked up Figuarts Lelouche from Blue Fin's crappy warehouse sale. The wait to get in and the wait to check out took way too long.
That sale had no pile of Master Asia, all the dbz got cleaned out the day prior by vendors that got first dibs and anything left over was cleaned out by anyone who camped there super early in the morning.
Saw a D-arts Mega Man, Tru-Force X, and the special Tru-Force X.
It's cheaper from Amazon then there, I can tell you that. It was like $120 there.
A chunk of their crap was priced at like you could just buy it mandarake cheaper.
Worst as is thing I found was a model kit of Cyan Dog that was partially assembled and missing pieces...
Any places taking pre-orders for Shampoo yet?
That's talking about Female Ranma's release date being the 30th.
It looks like the next Bandai day is the 1st, but they haven't listed anything but Iron Man mk46 yet.
She's been out for weeks, but she was a web exclusive in Japan, and a lot of US preorders were fucked over by the Amazon/Bluefin falling out. You'll probably have to check Mandarake and other second hand sellers.
Man... SHF Bruce has so much potential & possibilities. Best SHF figure ever.
HLJ has a pretty long history of accepting too many pre-orders and cancelling them, so you're likely fucked. But I bought 2 from amiami and 1 from HLJ, so when they arrive next week I'll sell you one for $80 plus shipping. $90 if you want it sent in the box.
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.
>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?
>Why are you expecting us to be HLJ's customer service?
Because I prefer sarcastic non-answers, apparently
>this was years before I thought to use /toy/ or social media to ask shit I didn't know. How do you people manage?
>ask shit I didn't know.
Why would one ask something they do know? Wouldn't that be a redundant thing to do?
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.
>That should've just been a piece with the original release.. I'm sure it wouldn't be a hard custom to make.
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.
Super Warrior Awakening Goku reissue in June.
>go to Epcot at Disney World
>they have a Japanese store that sells figures (normally overpriced)
>find Sailor Pluto at $60
>use my cast member discount to get her for under $40
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.
I am because I adored that season but it being premium bandai hurts
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.
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.
Awesome find, Anon.
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.
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
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.
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.
>mfw newfags like this are the majority population here
I think the figuarts are based on the manga and not on the anime.
I'm not sure if you realize this yet, but kids that were born when it aired are becoming adults.
>tfw I guess I'm old now
>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.
