Cancelled figures that make you anger.
Mine, Fuu from Samurai Champloo series by Triad Toys. I bought the guys, but looks like they lost the license and the girl was never released. Serie uncomplete for ever and ever.
>>6592799 >I'm not going to say these were going to be amazing since it was Shocker Toys making them
Hey now, for all their problems and Geoff's douchebaggery, Shocker actually made pretty good toys while they were alive. Their Scud and the Maxx are actually two of my favorite toys to this day.
What's more annoying is that third-party Transformers companies won't give it the time of day because it's not G1. And even if they did, chances are they would make some gay change that ruins the whole thing. Can't win.

Quality post, I really want the amiibo now.
If they had given them 1 or 2 more faces and sets of hands, and allowed the hat to be removable, they would've been literally perfect.
In case anyone cares, f4f adjusted the date for this Q2 2018, and are reopening POs this weekend. I completely forgot that I ordered this thing but now I'm kinda happy I did, the redesign looks way better.
the pock marks as a texture on it looks bad compared to the smooth one and the darker ring around the eyes would be good if it were a dark orange and not red. Other than that the colors look more vibrant. How much is this?
So this dog comes from the gigapulse Chou no yume chouko figure, and I cannot find much information on him. Anyone have it? How big is the dog irl?
>and here we have our son's room, he likes to collect action figures...
How did this happen? Who sold the idea that these would be collectible and valuable one day?
I mean even rubber dog poop is probably collectible but what the hell happened here?
Was it all some clever marketing by TY or was it a literal meme spread among people that it would be valuable some day?
I remember having a few as a kid, like a scorpion or a spider but besides that and a few others that’s how far my “collection” as a kid went. But this? What the HELL happened?
I saw that video, really sad stuff. I had a lot of the ones from McDonalds growing up, now I only have the Rooster I got in a care package.
It wasn't anything TY did that initially started the craze- the initial concept was a good quality stuffed animal that would still be cheap enough so that kids could buy with their pocket money/allowance. For instance, this is why they were understuffed.
The whole "collectability" thing was partially due to the fact that they started retiring designs as they released new ones, AND there were a few very rare ones with factory defects/variations that people would pay a lot for. Just a perfect storm I guess, nothing that TY really intended to happen. I have a large-ish collection the bulk of which I'd like to get rid of, but good god nothing like in that video. Most of mine where picked up at thrift stores and such. I will say that I personally like the diversity of the designs and the consistent quality of the toys (I maintain that even the modern beanie boos and such, as different as they are and whether you like the aesthetic or not, still maintains excellent quality compared to a lot of toys), so my collection is more because I enjoyed them than that I expected to get rich some day. I cottoned on fairly early that I would never have any of the actually valuable ones.
First time posting on /toy/ , forgive me if i don't follow any etiquette. With the culture that has arisen around the collection of anime figurines like the image i have posted, i was wondering whether figurines of these type have always been predominantly female or whether they were originally predominantly male. I remember watching Dragon Ball Z VHSs in my youth and seeing advertisements for battle damaged figures of various characters and this seems to be very much different from what i see today. Have things changed or is it just my perception?
TL;DR Have waifus always been a predominant niche in figurine culture or was there a shift at some point
Thank you for the input. I was also considering whether or not mech model kits would universally be considered masculine models, or whether or not they should even fall into consideration because they may not be as attractive because of the need to construct them by hand.
Mechs are a bit more complicated, just because the aesthetic can vary wildly from chunky, blocky bots to more organic physiques like EVA (inb4 not Mecha), but one can argue the majority have masculine body types, however, there are fembots. A handful of mobile suits, specifically Nadleeh and Nobel, come to mind. Transformers would likely be the best example in differences between male and female body types in mecha, especially between different series in the franchise.
I do think collectible figurines have been waifu dominated since prepainted anime figurines became a thing. But there used to be much fewer of them overall, and the mainstream ones were't as lewd. A lot of the older ones were also really shitty looking, so being lewd would only have made things worse. And the really expensive ones were just as derpy as the prize figures. Anime figurines actually being sexy didn't happen until after 2000. Being really good looking is mostly something from the past ten years.
I mean, back in the day, this shit was your $35 figma. So there just wasn't as much appeal to buying it unless you were utterly fucking obsessed.
One factor that I haven't seen mentioned yet is that as you grew up watching VHS you were incredibly unlikely to have seen advertisements for imported figures. Affordable international shipping is still a fairly recent development.
Additionally, Western culture has an entirely different perspective on how to depict characters, and what to allow in media aimed at youth. For instance, you're probably aware that the original DBZ contained casual nudity, among other things which were edited in various ways before being broadcast in the US.
Can we have a Beyblade thread? After finding out the new ones fucking EXPLODE as a line gimmick a couple weeks ago, I can’t stop obsessing over them so let’s talk about them.
Seems to be Spiral.
The HasCon that passed showed that Hasbro is very happy with Beyblade Bursts sales, gave it a huge space and revealed all the new product into 2018
Why are american stadiums so garbage?
The Hasbro guy said they wanted to be "different".
Just got HLJ'd out of my random booster vol 8s. At least Regulus is pretty weak.
Damn, I need to get me some of these before they sell out. Fekking 'collectors' are gonna end up scalping these like crazy...
They seem to have these at that Angry Viking Press website. Need to try and afford one quick.

Let's get some cool robot appreciation. Big, small, expensive, cheap, metal, plastic, rubber, whatever it may be, I just wanna see some cool robot figures.
Nothing to do with Digimon, that's Rahxephon.
what an idiot...
I want a nice toy of this magnificent bastard so bad. Easily the best thing to come of this game.
I got this guy for a good 58 on ebay. Pretty much brand new
>>6576436 >Tfw you have a well paying job and you're gonna get this bad boy as a Christmas present to yourself
Is this what joy feels like?
These are always fun. Post what you got, folks!
Updated pics of my collection.
aftermarket on these things is pretty bad, yeah. Though be on the lookout for rereleases, and there is another version of her coming out next year, so not all hope is lost, anon.
D-Arts and Sentinel rock are pretty similar in size, with the difference being a few centimeters at most. Personally, I prefer the Sentinel, but both are good figures with pretty great articulation and sculpt. Sentinel looks more classic design, while D-Arts is more MM8 than anything. Either way, you've got a good figure if you do decide to pick one up.
Thanks a ton anon. I'm leaning towards the 4inch one but I also really want the extra parts and Rush from the D-Arts. Fuck.
Welcome and share with us your customs using the greatest toyline of all!!
No bricklink for Mega though.
I would be into this..

Damn. Seeing your werewolves in outerspace is making me want to go and look for something with that figure.
Posted a few threads ago, finally got my chrome marker, what do you think?
That looks great and those Chrome Markers kick ass. I chromed out my ML Colossus. Might get another couple and chrome out my Black Series Phasma.
