How much better than the Black Series are these?
>No Twi'lek girls YOU HAD ONE JOB HASBRO!
They all look sad in person. I wanted Jyn until I saw it. The upper face isn't even sculpted at the right angle, and so the eyes look like they are perpetually melting off her face.
That Luke is going to look more like a Thunderbirds puppet than the reboot CGI puppets, which is ironic since the new Thunderbirds were designed to look like a pile of Ken dolls.
Weird.. I actually knew about this character and the doll still didn't register as her.
Good possibility that we could get Hera, she did get her own own Black series figure
Jyn looks like a ver. Ka.
When are we getting a Bat God figure, complete with Mobius chair?
Like I need more reasons to stop reading comics
Sure it does. Have you heard about nazi cap?
This was from like two years ago.
That was sarcasm, numbnuts.
Between this, Bat God, and Batman travelling to the beginnings of humanity just to become a totem or some shit, it's hard to say whether Johns or Morrison have shoved more stupid shit into Batman.
Just make Batman '66 the current canon already.
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
It's definitely a longstanding tradition of degeneracy, going by the popular garage kits of the 80s and 90s, but for specifics on how prominent female figures were compared to males in that era, it's harder to say. It was probably predominantly female, but to what percent is harder to say without being a super oldfag following the trends.
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.
These are always fun. Post what you got, folks!
I also keep a lot of shit at my desk.
clusterfuck but it still looks good somehow
I have this disply at work (small office/art supply store), I change it each couple of weeks rotating figures and the custmes seem to like it, they keep calling them lego for some reason.
Current config, tried to make it look like Fort was under atack, a bit of a clusterfuck.
rip grape kun ;_;
10/10 collection, love all the little touches, especially fourze popping out behind the gogg
New Thomas wooden thread give me your thoughts on the new sets
So apparently these exist
Even Facebook parents are pissed at Mattel.
Too bad no one complained about the weird sculpted panties on barbie and similar american dolls.
Makes me wish I could've gotten these when they were hot.
Everyday we stray farther from God's light.
Old thread was at bump limit and on page 7.
I picked up Zangief at NYCC and he's awesome.
No, don't do that. Leave it alone. You're not going to fix anything, just add to the problem. It would be better to just wait until you might possibly one day need an ad hoc fix rather than bringing that necessity to the forefront.
And ESPECIALLY don't do what this dumb motherfucker is suggesting. God damn do we get some fucking dummies around here.
I usually pose my figures, but I didn't have enough room to pose them in this display.
In other words: clusterfuck.
lmao, why are you fucking this guys dick off?
he fessed up to having generic poses in the first post, and i think his image has value enough in providing a large sample of MVC characters in one space.
so no greatbow to speak of, damn
Time for a new toy soldier thread.
Think along the lines of Army Men and similar toys, the little unpainted plastic figures.
Army Men, Cowboys & Indians, Spacemen, Knights, Ninja Men, Scuba Divers, you name it and it's all good. There's a whole lot more out there too if you know where to look.
Sadly, we're kind of in a bear market for Army Men and toy soldiers, but Army Men in general are one of those perennial toys that goes in and out of style in cycles.
They were big in the 1950's and 1960's, went out of style in the 1970's due to the oil shortage and anti-war sentiment following Vietnam, then they got popular again in the 1980's and 1990's. Recently, they've become unpopular most likely due to the so-called War on Terror and more importantly, the decline of toys in general.
But as long as there are toys, there will always be Army Men.
Also, a little crossover of /toy/ and /tg/ but have any of you ever played wargames or RPG's centered around Army Men or similar toy soldiers?
Did they have "ring hands", sort of like a lego guy? Because if so they were probably MPC figures. The company Lido also made some indian figures with accessories and removable torsos.
Your kids are lucky as hell man. Toy soldiers nowadays are awful. They're always small, brown, dollar tree figures with like 3 shooting poses and no vehicles. I would've killed to have old Marx or Timmee army men growing up.
Honestly don't know but can tell you it was around 40 years ago
I've got WW1 soldiers, not "Army Men" but toy soldiers none the less.
Anyone else collect vintage metal soldiers?
Sure, the game itself is for autists and spurgelords, but the minis are kinda cute. How many do you have and are you ashamed for supporting Notch's lavish lifestyle?
This isn't the Marvel Legends thread though.
>the game itself is for autists and spurgelords, If you're referring to Metal Gear Solid then why did you post Minecraft stuff?
I have a huge issue with these things. The holes in the playzone in the carrying cases are too small for most figures to stand in. But ironically enough, the blocks that come with the mini figures in booster sets are smaller than the holes and look off when displayed. And if that wasn't enough, the blocks in the stop motion set are too BIG to fit in there! How do you fuck up something like designing a toy literally based around blocks?
Do these come in blindpacks? What do they look like? Kinda neat
They do and they don't. Some come in blisters, some come with small playsets and the rest come in mystery blind packs that are shaped and themed after Minecraft blocks where the different sets are different blocks (Grass, Obsidian, etc...).
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.
GARADA K7 and DOUBLAS M2!
Damnit, I dont want Funkos, but I might for those iconic cuties.
But if the figure succeeds at looking like the original shitty design, then the design translates well.
Yeah, nah. I'd rather have a version that is stylized and looks at least decent.
I wish they would reissue this thing and release that fucking Lazengann.
Everything can be joked about. Some people are just toi damn sensitive.
Rape and incest is funny
There's Vision from Hulkbuster wave and Vision from the TRU 3-pack. That should cover all of his looks for the past 7 years.
>>6590623 >implying people haven't been spending any of their money on the revoltech that looks worse than the $20 figure.
A very easy figure to skip.
