I'm working on a game inspired by 90's toys and am looking for as much reference as possible, i've got a ton of stuff that I had as a kid, but I imagine there was a ton of other cool stuff that I missed out on.
I'm really focusing on anything with bright vibrant colours, as many mutants, monsters and robots as possible, but anything is welcome.
This guy was one of my favorite toys from the 90s. When T2 came out and I saw an ad in the paper that Rite Aid or somesuch was carrying toys from the movie, I went as soon as I could, hoping that they'd made an endoskeleton figure.
>>5400508 Generally I'd say early 90's were focussed more on "Gross-out" sculpts and bright, pastel colors, while the mid-to-late 90's started bringing on more "extreme" detailing and darker coloring (think McFarlane) , chrome, and translucent plastic. Action feature versions of characters are another big thing; the Batman toys were a major example. You had Batman variants meant to street luge, to snow board, to lava dive; everything. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kinda started the trend but Kenner went... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>5400023 I personally prefer the Figuarts version as a toy more. Figma is Figma. It certainly has its pros in terms of looks (mostly around the torso), but I'm not that enamored with the source material and pig boy's "faceless" enough that I don't mind some of the more visible joints. If the source material is important to you, then Figma. If not, and you just want the somewhat slightly better toy, go Figuarts.
Arcadia: used to be Yamato. Basically a garage kit manufacturer with a nice factory. Makes a small amount of hella expensive Valkyries from once neglected properties by bandai (Macross Zero, Macross Plus, VFX series and until recently SDF Macross) their toys are very very expensive but very high quality and have a lot of neat features. though they lack a lot of the tampo printed detail bandai toys have. dont compare hi metals with them as arcadia toys are really huge. they are...

Hey /toy/, I was wondering if anyone could help me remember the name of this toy I had.
I believe it was made in the mid-late 90's/early 2000's. It kinda reminded me of a furby (pic related), but less animal-like and more like something along the lines of Q-Bert. The toy was a little smaller than a basketball and was lime green with hot pink lightning bolts on it. If I remember right, its main gimmick was lighting up in different colored flashing leds, (top of the head was probably clear) and it made noises, probably rumbled as well.
My memory is incredibly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Are there Any other Toys or models that have this aesthetic, but aren't bank-breakingly expensive? Triple-a is amazing.. but I don't have that kind of cash. Please none of the elitist shitposting that seems to pop up on /toy/. Try to be civil.
Only thing close is Acid Rain, which is a skip and a jump away from 3A's WWR in 1:18 scale. They are probably the most expensive 1:18 toys on the market though(worth it however), so you won't be saving much. DESU 3A is among the most affordable companies out there today, compared to other 1/6th heavy hitters. As for Acid Rain, Vehicles are around $100(the most 3A of which is the Laurel, currently, https://www.instagram.com/p/45oP6gO9OL/) and figures are around $25.
I'm thinking about buying a couple of Black Series figures from Brian's Toys and can't seem to find anything but poor reviews for them. I'd really like to not waste my money but I would also like the figures, so I come to you all for any feeback/experiences you have had with these guys. Thank you in advance!
it had a blue ball, and somthing on top that i cant remember. the ball would roll and the thing on top would stay in place due to the bottom of it being weighted. it actually had some heft to it and would hurt like a bitch if you threw it at someones face.
I'm pretty sure it was some form of fast food toy. I know the gimmick has been done multiple times. the color of the ball is about what i remember it. maybe it was a super man flying above the earth. Im not sure.
I got this recently off an online canadian fig store, but comparing it to the box art and other similar figures, the position of the face to the hand feels...off.
don't know if it's a knock-off, but it's very convincing if it is, paint is very high quality and stand looks official. Even if it is fake, I don't feel that it's enough to go out and spend $90 on a another one.
