It used to be build your own action figure (the ball joints worked great) which was awesome. Now it's hard to find k'nex man pieces. I feel bad for kids today. I would make gundams and people and have epic battles.
On the left is the cybernetically enhanced antagonist: lost his legs and right arm, and has a strange cross shaped weapon. On the right is generic soldier with a sword. The middle is our hero.
You're kinda SOL as far as good articulated figures go.
The Figmas are very well articulated and come with entry plug pilot seats, but are based on the Rebuild designs, and Asuka is only available in her test suit. In addition, Asuka's tits aren't properly shaped and so appear to "float".
Revoltech did figures of both the Rebuild and original series figures. They are gorgeously sculpted and painted but low on accessories and have horrendous articulation, especially the original series versions. For what it's worth, the few poses they... Comment too long.

>>5634903 Yes, the floating boobs is a common issue and easily fixed, just add sime glue to the side of the tits and press against her chest, fixed. Figma are the best articukated figures for either. No proglems with the Rei Figma.
>>5634392 Despite of how much we trash Hasbro, they are ages above Mattel. I can't believe only the shitty """"""""""""collector"""""""""""" line has figures that start to resemble the characters they are based of.
Is there any way to display packaged figures in a classy way, without it looking like a toy store in your house? I have a bunch of figures I like but they have little play value so to open them is hardly worth it. Others are more interesting when seen in context with the packaging. What say you, /toy/? Do any of you display carded figures?
>>5634237 Personally, I feel there 's no point in collecting figures if you're not going to take them out of their boxes, but to each their own I guess. Displaying carded stuff can look cool, but only if you keep it to a minimum, no more than 7 or so at a time. Also, try to keep them from the same line. It looks cool if you have maybe a single wave from one series, but it going to get cluttered if you have a whole wall populated by 7 different toylines.
hey yall hope your having a great day so I say this picture on yamiguchi's twitter and I was wondering where did he get that sleeping bag from? because I'd like a couple for my figures. I figure its just doll's house stuff? is it expensive? best place to buy?
>>5633615 thx for the help, should of mentioned im from uk. Is this thing in the picture a sleeping bag? or is it some kind of Japanese specially named bed? I just tried ebay searching "dollshouse sleeping bag" and I couldn't find any sleeping bags like the one in this picture. This one in the picture looks really comfy but the ones on ebay are flat as a pancake.
>>5633454 >coated in sticky ganja resin It's not resin bro. Older Revoltechs with glossy paintjobs (like those Evas) get sticky over time. It's a problem with whatever paint or topcoat Kaiyodo used to use. You can wash them off and stuff with soap and water, but they'll never be completely unsticky. Sorry.
I have a lot of nostalgia for these War Planets toys. Post as much pics as you can of these toys and other similar toys such as Mighty Max.
Also I would like to know more about War Planets. I had a few of the planets and figures, including that deathstar like giant metal one but even back then they were mostly a mystery to me. For some reason I liked them though. I had these around the time I was beginning to stop playing with toys so I never got around to getting more of them. They remind me a lot of army men only with aliens and more colorful.
Here is one of the planets I had. I also had the ice one and maybe one other of the small ones. I know for sure I had two small ones and the deathstar one. If I remember correctly I think you could also buy the little figures separately to.
I mean I kind of do know why I have a stronger nostalgia for these toys then most other toys I had but I don't want to bother boring anyone. Especially not to start a thread. These things look so cool that they look perfect as decorative items to me.
I'm trying to organize a medieval style battle in my yard with some kids (14-21 sic!) Need help with the design of the swords that will be 99% cardboard. At work i can make any shape i wish with a cutting laser but the damn things need to be study enough to last 1 battle(day) so i wont be called a cheapscake :) Need some ideas in how to construct them and what the max lenght should be.
Alright /toy/ soldiers, time for a general census of this board. Just post your: Age Sex What brought you here? What made you stay? Try to keep it entertaining, keep shitposting to minimum, and feel free post general toy photography.
Disclaimer: not my photograph, currently away from home and toys. Found it via google.
I will start

>Shock Collectibles was on hand at Monsterpalooza and they provided a sneak peek of several upcoming offerings, including action figures that will bring the characters from An American Werewolf in London and The Thing to our toy shelves >Both films will be getting 7″ and 12″ figures, and though they had painted samples of the latter to show off, only unpainted prototypes of the 7″ toys were brought along. According to a newsletter sent out prior to Monsterpalooza, the finished 7″ figures will be revealed next month
