I really hope there are some european anons too. You see - im from a 'lame' part of Europe so its hard to me to keep my toy hobby stable because all i can do is to buy stuff from Ebay. With really crappy situations like when 1 figure costs 14$ but the SHIPPING is about 40$.
So im really. And i mean it - really jealous of people from usa that just can casually go to some toy convention and see a whole goddamn box of TMNT action figures and they can take anything they want without overpaying for shipping.
BUT HELL YEAH - im going to visit Berlin around November. Berlin is a capital of Germany. Germany is a bigass country in Europe.
I-i mean g-guys there should be something like that in Berlin. There must be! Im pretty much sure there are some "Collectable/Vintage Toy Store for Geeks" or some shit like that that i dont know about.
Im interested mainly in 80-90s stuff. In some cool obscure lines that noone knows about. In some weird shit like Boglins, Gremlins, Ghostbusters action figures and stuff like that (M.A.S.K, Visionaries etc etc) PS: I was in Cologne once 2 years ago and was visiting only one store in the central of it and it was awesome.
Not counting the Alien figs since they were made off of original prototypes, it's very refreshing to see an original property out of these guys. I think they look pretty cool, like a mix of Johnny Quest and Scooby Doo villians. Would love to see more of this kind of creativity and less ebin normie shit that just winds up being 3 or 4 normal people in clothes all with the same shit sculpting.
>constantly find rogue one toys at walmart weeks before october 1st >fucking retarded walmart employees that reek of shit wont sell it to you because of street date >oct 1 comes and now there impossible to find Tell me again what the fucking point of street dates are again?
Sup /toy/. I think im slowly getting into G.I.Joe stuff. However im mainly interested in "unique" interesting looking characters. I wasn't interested in this franchise because all i saw were just "regular american soldiers". But lately i keep seeing some really cool stuff that i want just for strange or cool design.
Like for example Voltar. I have no idea what he is (some gunner dude with a pet-vulture How cool is that!), i found him today and instantly bought. I want more characters like this! Can you recommend me something like that?
>>5940221 mostly the Cobra guys You had Raptor a lawyer that dress up as a bird Croc Master whose outfit was basically crocodile skin and leather who also had a croc pet. Crystal Ball that was Stephen King related The Cobra-La Team is about as fucking Unique as you can get
>>5939443 I tried it out, and honestly it looks okay, but a little weird. Like here >>5939453 Guts's skin tone is really dark, which I think fits a lot more with his Black Swordsman figma look, and the dark skin clashes with the matte dark blue-grey colors of the Berserker armor figma. Also Guts is supposed to have some leather straps around his upper body but if that doesn't matter to you then it's fine (also, you would need to paint that white streak of hair,... Comment too long.

Okay, how in the world do I clean older figures? They've been in the closet for a couple years and I took them out to find they're all sticky. Tried hand soap, tried dish soap, it helps a tiny bit but not much. Anybody had success with anything?
So I live in a very stupid country, but I have a forwarder in USA (Miami); and Im starting to get into videogames figures/bishoujos/figmas. Which are the best websites I can buy from to send them to my USA forwarder ? (Websites where I can pay the taxes, delivery, fees when ordering, since Im not directly receiving them). Thanks anons
What does /toy/ use to take images of their figma's, models or scaled figures for background? A lot of time i want to take pictures of models I've painted, or just some neat figma shots, but they always come out crappy cause it's usually on my desk or kitchen table or something. I'd like to take some pictures against like an all white or all black background, but I'm not sure what to buy/use for it. What do you guys do for these? Something where I can swap colors would be nifty as well.
AKA I don't want all of my pictures to show my computer, a random cookie jar, flowers, or whatever crap I have on the table at the time. I want the focus to be on the figma/model..not it's surroundings
>>5935817 Depending on what kinda figures you're taking pictures of, nature can be your greatest asset. Natural light, proper settings, adds an element of realism that helps bring your toys to life, so to speak.
>If we are looking competitors or even collaborators, we look at people like Neca as a competitor in the same category but we don’t look at traditional toys in the same way, as the product specification differs.
>we don’t view companies like Hasbro or Mattel as being in the same category as us.
>In Japan, companies like GoodSmile would be our main... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>5921928 Comic wise, the Mezco Hellboy is pretty much the best, but they're damn expensive now. I've got the animated version figure, and he's nice, but super top heavy and his legs seem fragile. There are the movie version figures that cost a bit less, but I can't speak for their quality at all. I've got a Mezco Abe, and he's really nice, amazing sculpt, though a bit stiff to pose.
