That's the entire point, dumbshit.
It's such a cheap process that childrens toy companies use it on $5 figures, instead of spending more money to give workers the time to do airbrushing right (or masks/tampos).>face printing
It's a heat sensitive decal. You can find that shit on Legos, megabloks, and countless other products since the 00s and likely before.
It's technology that was created before you were born and back in 2014 or thereabout Bandai thought>gee, our sculptors sure suck at sculpting real life humans. instead of hiring better artists, we should just print out the actor's face onto low resolution decals. it will completely replace the spray masks we normally would use, because we need to make more money on these overpriced toys
And since you're so ignorant, i need to explain that one day someone at DC Collectibles noticed Bandai's trick. They took what Bandai did, but instead of completely substituting the paint apps for the face completely, they used the low resolution sticker to substitute using shading, highlights, and other multi-step paint processes ONTOP of the usual spray masks and tampographs needed for the face.
And then someone at Hasbro noticed what DC Collectibles did and imitated them, because unlike Bandai, Hasbro spends the money to put tampographs and spray masks on the face still. The decal by itself looks like shit.
Has Bandai realized how shit a decal alone looks like?? Because Mafex, Mcfarlane and even fucking Mattel, the budget cutting king, are using the low res stickers along with normal paint apps on faces.>>8801779>ignoring the point to defend bandai's kenner-quality looking toy
