Thanks but if I import more than one through a retailer mooks will say it's scalping. Even though I could hypothetically make a buck doing that, there's such a fight for these already that I don't interfere. If a distributor would offer them, that'd be different.

I haven't really found a worthwhile Japanese distributor though. The two I know of are always significantly more expensive than Japanese retail and charge at least twice as much shipping. Every now and then they're almost competitive but it's rare. With the shit fits thrown over BBTS' markup, using that as a starting point would go over like a lead balloon.

Nor would I trust HLJ with another personal order on these. The competition on Star Wars and Marvel is 100 times more fierce than other stuff they've stiffed customers on.
>>
>>5425391
The details are all there in the sculpt. Maybe try owning one of these figures before shitposting based on badly-lit photos in future.

>>5425423
Unlikely to happen because Bandai technically can't sell them outside of Japan thanks to Hasbro. I believe HLJ does have some kind of wholesale program though, maybe get in touch with them about it.

the body on the SHF is near perfect. Sure, the facial likeness is off quite a bit, but at least it looks like a real person instead of a cartoon character with fucking downs.

Just so you know, 4chan has a timed posting limit, which is about a minute between each post.

Says you.

IMO (shouldn't even have to say this disclaimer, but so much butthurt comes from it), none of them are worth it. I can overlook mediocre articulation, but aesthetics are the most important thing about a toy.
Part of the reason I'm ok with Hasbro's bare bones paint apps is because their sculpts are so great. It looks like the actors, even if it doesn't have the complex paint apps and shading i love from other figures i buy.

So none of those figures are worth buying. If you want to settle for shit, good for you. The best option is dont give money for crap and wait for them to release something better.

The lengths you have to go to to defend poor sculpts is just ridiculous. Gotta make strawmen, like even bringing up another crappy sculpt that no one has ever claimed was good.

pic of a high tier sculpt (which i wouldn't buy anyway, because poor proportions)

>>5427213
>But Black series faces Hot Toys quality
>even if their paint is mediocre as fuck
Pick one.

You don't get to claim "muh Hot Toys" when the final product's paint is utter shit. There's a reason why Hot Toys figures look so good, and a huge part of that is the exceptional paint, something that the Black series is really shit at.
>>
>>5427213
>It looks like the actors, even if it doesn't have the complex paint apps

If they were all colored in gray then yeah sure, but Hasbro's paint completely shits on them enough to ruin the entire thing. It's one thing to appreciate a good sculpt in an artistic way, but it's a whole other level of autism to say that it carries the entire figure when the paint and overall material use/engineering is shit by comparison.

Keep buying them though, at least we still have people like you so Hasbro can produce the non-humanoid/maked figures for us that SHF won't be covering.

Oh, paint definitely plays a part, but it's hard to say that their faces are shit when you can see all the details in person.
When their sculpts look like the actor, it looks like the actor even if it's just flesh colored plastic.

I will note that I'll pass on poorly painted faces though, even if the sculpt is 100% true to the actor. No one wants derp eyes or lips painted on the chin, even if it's easy to fix.
I don't to support shit like that.

>Oh, paint definitely plays a part, but it's hard to say that their faces are shit when you can see all the details in person.

The face still looks like shit if the paint shits on an otherwise good sculpt. If Hasbro picked better plastic materials and their paint was more consistently clean, then I'd be inclined to agree but they keep ruining their own good sculpts. Stop giving them praise where it isn't even well-deserved, your love for sculpts deserve a better subject matter such as a Hot Toys figure. And if you think that I don't even own these figures to properly judge them in-hand (both Black Series and SHF) then you're sorely mistaken.

>I will note that I'll pass on poorly painted faces though, even if the sculpt is 100% true to the actor. No one wants derp eyes or lips painted on the chin, even if it's easy to fix.

Just like the Black series figures?

Actually, i haven't seen any poorly painted Black series figures so far, but i do ignore a lot of them. I mostly buy masked figures, but have been impressed with a few face characters. Old Han Solo, that black guy, Obi Wan, and Jango unmasked are fantastic.

Everyone else is pretty average to cartoony, or just shit.
Can't say anything about any of the Mauls, considering the face paint makes it hard to distinquish actual facial features even IRL (both actors and toy). So they look good, even the figuarts.

>>5427287
Sometimes the most simplistic of paint apps is better. It's why i think Bandai should just give up with the sandy dot matrix effect and hire better sculptors instead.
>>
>>5427314
By old han solo do you mean the OT han or TFA han? I agree on both accounts, just curious.

Old man Han Solo.

I'm not really a fan of the other ones. The style is cartoony and he looks out of place with the rest of them.

I've been considering doing a wash for mine like that one guy did for his old Solo. I'm undecided, since the figure already looks good as it is. I'll see after giving him a matte coat (everyone should do this, as it makes details pop).

I totally agree .. TFA Han, and really wave 5 in general, have shown a marked improvement over their previous efforts.

See this is fine since I can actually customize, but people shouldn't even have to do this. You keep harping on and on about how "dot matrix" paint apps ruins Bandai's figures and yet that's exactly what makes them far more appealing compared to the average shitty cartoonish paint apps by Hasbro.

They don't have to, because the sculpt and tigure is already fantastic.
I only do it because, like you, I also like to customize my figures. I'm holding off from doing a wash, because is it worth it compared to the time i have to give it a wash and then spend all that time cleaning it up to look best? Eh......

>>5427481
That might not look too bad because of the nice photo and, but he looks fairly undersized in person. Basically, compared to other figures in similar scale he looks too average-sized.

It doesn't help that Vader was such a towering figure in the actual film (Luke should only reach up around his shoulders), hence why a lot of people found the Mafex to be a good compromise of sculpt, paint, articulation, and height.

>>5427545
For Mafex, no you can't. It's basically attached to the figure itself so it's pretty risky if you want the cape, which is a shame because they used a really good cloth material that looks really natural for the scale.

Figuarts yes you can, but it's soft plastic with two small tabs that loosely plug into his back. You can just cut/shave them off if you really need to put the cape on someone.
