Okay, can someone explain to me what's with all the BIG action figures hogging the shelves these days?
They're kinda too big & cumbersome for a child to play with normally. Horrible articulation & stiff sculpts really ruin it for collectors. And then there's the cheap paintjobs and brittle plastic they're made of. One good drop on concrete and they'll shatter like glass.
And they're $20~$80 depending on size. That ain't cheap and can buy you more better quality toys.

The fad is kinda teetering off,really. They were everywhere last year and before,now they're.mostly relegated to a handful of things and are smaller. 18'' or so seems to be the go-to scale. Where as 30+ inches was the thing last year.

Do you have problems swapping part in your figures? check this little advice >http://www.goodsmile.info/en/post/3325
You know, I don't particularly like this design, but I was getting Shin Getter and its weapons set, and since Mazinkaiser gets weapons from the same set, I figured I'd pick it up as well.
And out of the box it looked gorgeous. But then I tried swapping the hands. The double ball joints on it are so shit, that they went with the hands instead of staying in the wrists, and when I finally got the double ball out of the hand and attempted to plug it back into the wrist, the fucking cup for the ball joint in the wrist broke in two and fell out, leaving me unable...

>>5324140 I had the exact same problem with my Mazinkaiser. Every other SRC I've bought has been fantastic aside from minor QC issues that were known to me prior to purchasing. I think this is one of those common issues. I ended up gluing it on the wrist side so it's at least still single jointed.
>>5324154 Not OP, but guy who said he had the same issue. Funny you mention that yours was first release and didn't have the problem, mine was the reissue like OP's and *did*. Maybe only a problem with the most recent run
It's been a while since I've seen a discussion of our Grail /toy/s. So, what's in your personal holy grail category, and have you gotten any of them? Don't regress into a shitstorm of "you like - i don't", if you don't like something, that's fine. But remember that's someones most wanted item. I just ordered one of my grails: The Goon series 1 figures entire lineup.
>>5324078 Well, last i checked, Johnny the Ball was about 15 eurobucks on ebay, the goon was 60 something, the build-afigure zombie was 50-80 depending on whether it's complete. The prices wary a LOT. I got a lucky break and got the whole lineup out of boxes with 60 shipped. The Good guys are better articulated and cheaper than johnny the ball, but zombie priest is very good aswell. Frankie has the most fun poses available, but his legs are very static posed. I'll post pictures if the thread is alive when they arrive.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
