I guess the old thread stopped bumping.

Just preordered my first 3A figure along with some other things. Might add Nendoroid Petite Racing Miku because of the cool car.

Do you have anything preordered, toy general? Anything coming up that interests you?

Hasbro usually has the Convention stuff on their Store site either during or the day after the convention. But like the stuff at convention it goes fast.

She feels really solid, yet eerily fragile in most places. Her sword comes out and she came with her Shikai Zanpakuto as well as another set of hands... however the hands aren't too flexible so the swords can't be held without fear of breaking the parts. What the fuck.

There's a new line of models of DC Comics women as 1950's pin-ups.

http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/gamereport/awesome_stuff_exclusive_batgirl_cgx2DKQd6rpFzE9i6dX8jM#axzz2YZ2Guy6h Barbara looks amazing, and she gets my vote for "redesign I'd most like to see cosplayed", but the scarf/cape combo seems a little redundant.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC31313#.UdyN6D49x74 Diana's expression is a little weird, but I love her costume. Kinda like a badass 50's mechanic, just a little more pinup-y. Love the definition on her legs, too.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC31350#.UdyN6T49x74 Kara's bustier-dress and scarf look great. Love the gold detailing, and that smile.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC0025#.UdyN6z49x74 Pamela gets my vote for the best pose. Love that simple-but-elegant old-school lingerie.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=DC0049#.UdyN7D49x74 Harley wouldn't look out of place in Borderlands 2, she has a Mechromancer look to her. Love the jacket, belt, boots, and goggles. Red-tipped hair looks way better than that half red/half black look.
>> No. 212413
Fragility confirmed. I stood her up and rocked her back and forth lightly to try and get her into a position where she could stand... and the little o-ring that held her foot on broke in half.

You can say what you want about American figures, but at least they don't beak from simply standing up.
>> No. 212433

That's weird, considering that other Play Arts Kai toys seem much more sturdy. Most of my Metal Gear toys can stand on their own just fine.

...Then again, the Akuma and Chun Li toys I had busted straight out of the box and I had to send them back...
>> No. 212439
That sucks. Street Fighter figures seem pretty pricy and hard to come by (in my experience). Hope you got good replacements.

As for Rukia, ya one of the biggest complaints with her was that her feet snap off way too easy... I really hope I can fix her, but with the way the figure's weighted and how thin her legs are... I don't know. Seems like they didn't really think things through.
>> No. 212449

The part that sucks is that I'm still waiting on those replacements. Cammy and Ryu are still facing off on my shelf, they were fine when they arrived.

>Pics and a Vid of Scalpers from Comic Con.

Yea killed my want for any exclusives this year.
>> No. 213786
Do the people running the convention and/or the official sellers of the exclusives do anything about scalpers at present, or is their mindset seemingly "so long as they're buying our merch and padding our pockets before they go try to rip people off, we don't care"?
>> No. 213787
Some merchandisers selling direct at convention are strict about it because they know some assholes just do it and then turn around and sell it at their booth across the floor. Mattel I know for one has a history of enabling that kinda behavior allowing scalpers to just buy whole cases of merch though and last I heard the convention itself can do little to curtail that behavior. Hasbro is a bit more fair since they usually have whatever is on floor also up on their site at some point as well.
>> No. 215857
Hey, as someone pretty much completely out of the loop on how this stuff works, could someone more educated than me explain why a figure can be publicly shown more or less complete looking and then disappear for years? Something I've been curious about.
>> No. 215858
licensing and scheduling are some of the primaries with sales being another. Domon didn't exactly burn up the sales charts hence Master Asia gets shelved with only recently coming back out into the open with their starting to pursue the Western Market same with Digimon. The other is what happens with Figma in that what is more popular and a sure sale such as figures from the most popular girl show or famous celeb getting pushed to the front and others such as Sunred and his associated sitting in limbo for years or being released as exclusive. Thankfully the exclusive bit isn't has bad as it used to be with Goodsmile having an international shop and Bandai putting most what they think will sell through the Blue Fin distribution.

I'd buy a Domon figure. G Gundam is to this day the only Gundam I've seen. And it bred in me a love of international teams, outrageous sideburns, and dramatic yelling.

Oh come the fuck on, how has this happened again? How?

I bought this same Chun Li toy, but sent it back when the legs Papa's easily. After waiting several months for the store to find a replacement, I said "screw it" except a refund, and took my business to Amazon. New toy comes in, both legs can pop off easy, and both arms break straight out of the box. Was this just... a bad toy? Was it just not made well? Because this is really frustrating.

Has anyone had any problems with Riobot Blodia? Mine has a stuck right hip joint (left moves fine). I suspect they somehow accidentally superglued the joint because there was a visible blob of it outside the joint, so there may be some within the joint itself.

Would dripping nail polish remover/acetone into the joint fix it, or do I have to return this sucker to HobbyLinkJapan? I'm afraid it'll damage the joint as well.

Anyone have DC Direct Red Son Batman?

I really like how Batman looks... but the figure itself doesn't look like much fun, mainly because it doesn't seem to have much articulation.
>> No. 223315
Its a DC Direct so no the articulation won't be much, barely any movement at all really.

as a Display piece they are great, just don't expect to be making action scenes with them.

Thanks Bunker. Probably won't pick it up then, especially at $60 which is the cheapest I've found it.

Right? Goddamn sexy Russian Batman.
