I am in the philippines for a while living with my fiance. I started collecting some diecast airliners because I love aviation. Recently two of my airliners developed a "condition." This condition seems to have melted the paint on two of the airliners. Not the base color, like white or blue, but the features like windows, airline name, doors, small livery features, etc. I am able to pick these planes up and smear off the paint with my thumb. As far as I can figure there are three possible causes to this:
1) handling them caused the paint to melt, either due... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I just moved into a new place and I'm thinking about replacing my cheap bookcase I used to display my figures with a nice glass or curio case. Does anybody know of one that can fit 12"+ figures and isn't $500?
Authentic products are produced with volatile components as well. Third world country production of things isn't just a cost consideration, it's utilized because of lax safety standards abroad. Lead in paints to help strengthen it in the polymerization stage, plasticizers to help increase elasticity, etc. You can grab lead test strips from amazon and it's almost a guarantee that any authentic figures you buy would be flagged.
It's just ratio of key ingredients that differentiates real items and bootlegs at a certain point, but even then the difference is negligible.
>>5642826 I remember my mother always saying when a toy reeks of plastic smells that it causes cancer. It feels very exaggerated, by that logic every actionfigure I ever had would be affected, basically everything Mattel and Hasbro.
She also put the worst figures outside so they lose their smell but I doubt that this changes much if it is in the plastic itself.
No, seriously tho, let's do a topic about stuff that Funko's ReAction figures should do, if they were willing to get more adventurous.
As you can tell from my pic, I am immensely annoyed that; even tho they hold the Steven Universe license, they haven't even done any actual action figures with them. Especially for ReAction, but not in the usual pseudo-Kenner way.
I'm thinking more of a pastige of Rock Lords (Which was underrated dammit) IE, with the gem-characters able to transform into their gems and more articulated than normal. It'd... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Also, considering that Jason Eisner specifically said in interviews that they were based on the design aesthetics of 80s toys/80s toy villains, there really needs to be a ReAction for The Plague from Hobo With A Shotgun.
Hell, my idea for it would be as the kickoff to a larger-sized late-80s/early-90s-Playmates-house-style-styled (Think Ninja Turtles, Toxic Crusaders, Earthworm Jim, Dick Tracey, ect) size range for sleazier, more urban films.
My ideal films for that range'd include pretty much anything by David Cronenberg and Frank Heinlotter, Tokyo Gore Police,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>5642822 Yeah, but they did actually also just license those unproduced figures for The Dark Crystal. Like, this isn't even a rumor, their original designer Tim Clarke (Who also did Sectaurs and Boglins BTW) actually not only confirmed this, but he's even shown off an all-new Augra sculpt he did for the line.
OF course, hopefully this means that there's hope for other unproduced 80s toylines, like The Last Starfighter in pic related.
But, yeah, speaking as OP, there is kind of an "off"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>5642515 If you walk further down the road where Mong Kok's Sino Center is, you should see a large mall in Yau Ma Tei that specializes in lots of toys from ancient robos to new figures. You should be there when you see a lone elevator on the side, or just keep walking until you see a large set of stairs and escalators. I recommend checking it out.
Also if you go above the main shopping part in Sino Center there's more stores by elevator. There was a record store and a floor or two above a store that specialized in robots, some oldies on consignment there too.
Check almost every building in Mong Kok. One time I was meeting up with a girl and saw a Death Note guy on a poster. Went in the building which I had never been in before. They had a lot of specialty stores like an all Star Wars and an all Keroro and all Gundam etc.
Are you getting the archetype figmas? They come in flesh and grey flavor.

>>5631985 In some senses yes it does, I had considered that, and rest assured, I do try to park up threads where I can via contribution and conversation and (back in the day) games.
But also I figured this may be a way to loosen people up a little outside of just shitposting in other threads. This is a place MEANT to be off topic and silly, more than anything an experiment just to remind people not everything needs to be themed.
Tldr: I feel like twatting around, thanks for twatting too.
Just wondering, but why do so many anons on this board collect action figures or toys with joints? I understand posing and being able to manipulate a scaled copy of a character people enjoy, but what draws the majority here to discuss it more?
>>5646446 Because there's really nothing to talk about statues except for paint and sculpt. And then they just sit there for you to ogle on. With articulation usually there's an art of compromise, and then there will be some botched articulation like for example this guy's wrist
Statues are not really toy anyway, because by definition you need to be able to "play" with your toy.
I bought my Mankanshoku 2 Star Nendroid a while back, but it fell off the shelve, snapping the hinge at the jacket. I was thinking about drilling a hole to insert a small metal rod, but I'm not sure that'll work. Any advice?
Random question, but has anyone ever experienced or reported GPS with Transmetals Sonar?
I bought one a few days ago in a fit of nostalgia, but I worry about her plastic. She was always a favorite as a kid, but I long ago lost several of her pieces and then the entire toy. Having her in had again and I still like it just as much. Maybe I'll do a repaint of TR Mindwipe as Sonar.
