Excellent. I didn't have cash for it now, but I will in June.
Too many delays in a line that is already very dragged out. Anyway, I'm glad I didn't wait to open the other 2.
With Phoenix dropping this month, my wallet is grateful for the delay.
Same here. And Hot Toys Yoda! Thanks for the delay, TT.
that's a line i'm already regretting getting hooked on
You've given in to the dark side. There is no escape.
I thank heavens for the day I was finally able to say no more to HT collecting. It was hard, sold everything, and I'm now able to focus on only one thing, TF's.
HT does incredible stuff, but they are just too overpriced now.
The extent of my HT collecting was with only 4 figs- Nolan's Batman stuff. I too was relieved when I was able to take a step back and evaluate my collecting habits. I'm in the process of selling them now.
Yeah HT collectors in my mind are on a totally different level of collecting. The price and space they need to have those figures...
You'd be surprised though. Most of them keep stuff inside their boxes because they don't have the space. They buy stuff they don't even like most of the time. I know, because I was that way.
And at $300 a pop, no wonder most are so into CC debt as Sideshow does their "payment plans" and collectors ACTUALLY think they are paying less money. It's a vicious circle, that HT collecting. I'm glad I'm done.
@Deshawn Are there any golden rules to HT collecting?
nothing from kapow..
i'm embracing the darkside !!

sorry for helping derail the thread
that's one route I won't take
nowt from kapow here either
I got Hot Toys Yoda from Sideshow Collectables a few days ago.
I don't think it's that bad. I run a pretty tight ship. Absolutely nothing but official Takara Tomy MP's and Hot Toys. I find the slow release schedule by both companies to be easily affordable.
Me too. Phoenix plus Artfire and Godbomber for me. Watch everything get pushed back and all drop in June now, LOL!
What is the reason for the delay?
Could it seriously be QC issues. Dirge was shown almost 10 months ago by that person who was taking it out from the glass display if you remember. Never mind, TTS is in 2 weeks.
IDK man, First it was only 1989 Batman stuff, having that 1989 Batmobile in 1/6 was something else! But then I realized I live in a condo, There's no way I can display that the way it was meant to be displayed. Then TDK stuff came out, vehicles, etc. Then Robocop, ED - 209, the whole Enchilada, then the usual "I just want one Iron Man" and all downhill from there. I was looking at almost 20K worth of product, most of it in boxes. I felt sick.
If you can manage it, more power to you my man! They sure are amazing looking figures, but they get expensive fast, more so than TF collecting IMO.
How many do you have and what lines are your favorite ones?
1) Delayed to make sure wings are assembled properly, and the Torso is not loose.
2)Delayed to make more $20 Movie Deluxes resulting in worse QC when Dirge is released.
Delete as applicable.
But I still see you lurking the Freaks threads.
I am very specific with my MPs and 1/6 scale figures and my display space is limited, so even if I wanted to buy more, I wouldn't be able to display everything, so it keeps me in check. I am to the point now where I am basically cashed out of space so some big decisions have been made. I unfortunately had to box up my HT Batmobiles for the massive space they consume. I almost got out of the game for good not too long ago, but there's still a few more key pieces I need before I can retire. I know what's on my wants list, and when I get em, I'm out.
Sorry for the derail, friends.
