Would you buy a figma of one punch man? I think it could be a pretty interesting line
kind of sad 4chan isnt for weebs anymore. these reaction images arrived way too late
I thought the same thing until I watched the show. It's actually pretty funny.
I'd rather have pic related, or any of his teammates.
Or maybe Dust or Crystal man since they were designed by the same artist as ES21 and OPM.
not happening but still
I would get figma Saitama because I like the manga so far, but anyone else I do not care for, nor do I see them getting action figures. The characters are one way or another parodies of different heroes and villains, That works for the "Jump style" of just introduce 200 characters and let readers pick their favorites, but on their own they don't have that much going with them for a figure. Saitama is fun enough as a joke character to have, interacting with any other heroes you may already have, just being ridiculously OP.
>but on their own they don't have that much going with them for a figure
How can anyone have this opinion when Genos exists, not to mention how much he appears with Saitama since his introduction.
For having figures, it is more about their designs for me. Just a blond guy with Iron Man arms and regular clothe visual wise. Character, the royal student cyborg that makes comical overestimation of his master's intentions...oh and after revenge. Yeah not that super interesting.
I do like the format of the story, and the art is great. I hope it ramps up and get interesting but keep not taking it self serious.
But the characters just do not pop out visually so they are not that suited for a line of collectible figures imo.
The designs alone are pretty toyetic, not sure what issue you have with those.
Especially since we constantly get toys of fucking normal and boring girls in the early twenties at most.
I hate them so much, its just a real shame because the manga has some of the best art ever put to paper
oh well, I'll get over it
I don't want to spend 5000 yen on guys in tank tops or plain T-shirts? More or less.
At least school uniforms has designs and colors.
I get they don't want super intricate battle suits because it is weekly publication and why trouble your self too much, but it just does not translate well in figure form. Too boring.
Saitama has a good visual going on with is reverse Anpanman suit and stupid looking face. Some over the top ridiculous Kaijin, sure. Other heroes, nah.
I actually find the boring-ness of their designs to be their main appeal as far as figures go. I mean, so long as we're not talking Mattel/4 Horsemen level of generic bodies and re-use, I'm fine with a few OPM figures. OPM himself and Genos would be high on my list. I can take or leave guys like King or even Licenseless Rider. The Psychic Sisters seem more like statue material though. I can give the villains a miss as well.
So yeah, just OPM and Genos for say, Figma, would be good.
Oh only read the tankobon so wasn't aware how it was publicized Assumed it's Weekly Jump from the content. Not the point. I get it is "the real world" so they don't really have crazy get up and most do their heroing in regular clothe, and that's fine. But makes boring figures.
Have I mention I like the manga?
It's not "different" though. By different you mean they lack any unique design? I do hate One Piece or Naruto but you can show some random character and still be able to tell what show he/she is from. This one is just too generic. They are great in the context of the manga but if you put them aside other figures with stronger designs it will just look unappealing
