I want a Mecha Sonic, gottammit.
Eggman's feet should be bigger
Metal Sonic's everything is wrong
Mecha Sonic as about as canon as Chaos Knuckles.
Sega shelved them in favor of shit characters to peddle their shit games
>I have £170 sitting in a jar behind me I've been saving for a VR headset
what are the chances of Hyper Sonic, Hyper Knuckles, and Super Tails?
What figures are you guys waiting on?
>my kirby nendoroid and lucas amiibo are both coming soon
>no Streets of Rage figurines
Fuck you too Sega.
These look amazing, but I bet they cost an absolutely retarded amount.
Still, I want that Beat
Oh come on that's not even fucking fair. Now I have to live with the fact that I'll never be able to own this thing without paying six grand to scalpers
This is the only one I actually want. I'm a sucker for lights. The reflector is a real mirror underneath, and the base has details instead of being just a plain disc.
How does polystone compare to PVC figures?
I can vouch for F4F's quality. I had their Ganondorf and Ryo.
They have some of the best quality control I've seen from a figure company. They also have by far the best packaging hands down. I swear the way they ship it makes the figure indestructible.
That being said they are quite expensive, but unfortunately this hobby just keeps rising in price which is a shame since it seems like F4F only wants to do huge statues now which will make it hard to pickup some of the more minor characters.
I cannot fucking wait for their Soulcalibur line though. Those will all be day one purchases for me.
They are doing a statue of Ornstein. Artorias is going to be 1/4 scale I believe so just imagine a 1/4 Smough... Would probably be big enough to use as a cauldron.
I believe it is 1/4th scale. That's a pretty standard price for 1/4th though usually you're buying a humanoid so they take up more vertical space.
Common misconception. The bigger you go, the more expensive PVC gets. Modern PVC is superior in pretty much every way, but it gets to the point to where it just isn't worth making huge statues with it because it would be so fucking expensive to produce. This is why even Japanese statues switch to shit like polystone once they reach 1/4th scale for the most part.
Source: Jerry, head of Pop Culture Shock. He has said on a number of occasions how PVC is the superior medium, but just not viable for 1/4 statues because of price.
Polystone can still lean. It's all about the engineering. Plenty of statues from Sideshow and Pop Culture Shock have leaned over the years.
Good quality PVC shouldn't lean either so long as they design it well. Cheap shit like Kotobukiya will probably lean, but it's pretty rare for a figure from say Good Smile Company to lean these days.
The only benefit to polystone is the weight, and that's complete worthless shit that only limits your display options.
Polystone is inferior in everyway. It is harder to sculpt, it doesn't take as nicely to digital sculpts, it's harder to paint, it doesn't allow for as vibrant and detailed of paint jobs as PVC, etc.. The only reason it is so widely used with big statues is because the companies are cheap as fuck and want maximum profits even while sacrificing the quality.
All we know about is Nightmare. They just announced the license a week ago. It is going to be 1/4th scale. I hope they do a lot of characters. I suspect the next will be Mitsurugi followed by either Taki or Ivy. F4F doesn't really specialize at all in waifu statues so I'm not sure how well it will turn out.
My dream statues for years was Dampierre and Hilde's SCV design, but I doubt that will ever happen. Dampierre just wouldn't be the same without mixed media anyway.
Nightmare is going to look amazing at 1/4th scale. Having owned their Ganondorf I know they can do an armored fighter like Nightmare justice.
They've improved a lot since then. It's crazy to look at their stuff from even five years ago and compare it to the sculpts and paint jobs they are pumping out right now. F4F is probably my favorite high end statue company these days. Ever since they released Ganondorf they really have been going all out.
If I had known about these ahead of time I would saved up for at least one
I've got hundreds of figures and have spent thousands on them. It's an interesting hobby and it is best done in moderation.
The thing people often underestimate about a good figure is the lasting value it has. You'll get bored of a game, but a figure can be something you glance at everyday and it can be enjoyed in a number of ways.
Stuff like F4F is expensive and if you're interested the best way to do it is to do their flex pay stuff. It takes a good year for a statue to come out so the two hundred + they cost becomes way more manageable when it's actually just skipping eating out/having a cup of coffee every few days.
How the fuck hasn't this been posted yet? I want this so badly, but could never afford it.
>wanting to shill out hundreds of dollars for a childrens toy
I just got the shovel knight amiibo today and have lucas preordered.
The only nendo I'll ever buy (besides the stormtrooper) is megaman when he comes out and maybe kirby. i'd totally buy red and sonic if they weren't absurdly priced.
>tfw i will never afford this
I actually hate the look of nendos myself but kirby actually fits the style great. I was actually considering mega man but I'm content with my koto kit.
Why though? The only advantage is they do popular IPs people want. This is a figure by Alter made in 2010 and looks better than anything they've made and for a fraction of what F4F would charge. Even with recent price increases scale figures by MF, Alter, and GSC are still cheaper and higher quality.
still waiting for best character to get a figure.
>no Alis figure
fuck you sega
