This guy gets it.
Let people enjoy different things, how about that?
What point did you want to prove? that Transformers shouldn't have non-transforming merchandise? Now I'm no business consultant, but I think that's far from a smart decision
No. I don’t think the should have transforming statues. I’ve well supported flame toys drift, their model kits, revoltech and action masters. Statues however, are dumb.
Thanks homie. I had to go beast mode on him for a minute
So are you saying it wouldnt be cool to see a customizer make this thing transform?
Obviously you jumped in the middle of a debate without reading how the other person came at me and started some s**t.
This is made of polystone. Not really the material to be used with any kind of friction.
You still didn't answer the question about what point you would be trying to prove?
I thought the point was kind of obvious. But what I meant is maybe if someone can make one of these statues transform, maybe the companies will start making them transform. They are so lazy.
You do realise that Hasbro doesn't let other companies make licensed Transformers that actually transform?
el oh el
Theres so many statue companies I dont even keep track of which ones are offical or 3rd party anymore.
I don’t care if the transformer doesn’t transform as long as it’s got great articulation. This will cost more than a couple model kits and doesn’t even move. I think that’s a poor investment for what you’re getting.
It would be cool, but that's really not how statues work so it's not as feasible to do. I've seen it done on smaller statues but those are more similar to traditional figures so there's more resources to work with.
I'd love more action figures than statues, but this isn't made for people who want that.
Regardless, some people do buy these statues, hence their limited run and high price.
There aren't that many and apart from one DOTM Shockwave, they are all official.
Are you sure you don't mean there are so many companies in general making Transformers stuff? Basically anything that transforms and isn't Hasbro/TT, is 3rd party.
True, these are expensive which is a massive deterrent, however that doesn't make them dumb. Also, as far as "investment" is concerned, the resale value is normally the same or better than what you paid for due to their limited nature.
I wasnt aware Hasbro had a fetish for licensing art. I was under the impression that one company was offical and all the others were 3rd party.
I agree with the other guy about them being a poor investment. He wasnt talking about the resell value. He was talking about getting the most bang for your buck.
Well it’s not just the price. It’s the price coupled with the fact that it can’t do anything. That my friend is dumb. Not to mention, why would you want to consider the resale value if I even wanted it in the first place?
That's a fair point, however I'd imagine that the same argument could be said about any toy? They don't feed, clothe or shelter you.
And unless you regularly pick up and play with all your figures, the the transforming point is kinda moot, since well, they're just sitting there as much as any statue.
I see that but you’d expect a toy to be a toy. While many don’t transform them it’s good to know they can. My main point though is you can’t vary or let the characters interact with just statues.
