    I guess Dreamstar Toys have some connection to these companies or at least designers.

    They have said repeatedly in both threads that there is no connection between Dream Star and Cang

    I mean, their design direction is completely different.

    Cang Toys is g1-inspired, but super stylized.

    Dream Star is Bumblebee movie with super high-tech detail, maybe some slight G1 touches (like somewhat cleaner faces)

    Moonstudio would be related to Zeta.

    Zeta has done Movie stuff - ZV-01 Pioneer, ZV-02 Flash.

    Aren't they and Studio Cell (people who made Star Lord Unicron) both Zeta trying to dodge HasTak?

    01 Studio (Cell) is basically an offshoot of Zeta (Core Star).

    DreamStar Toys is separate.

    Wow, the funny thing is that I don't like Zeta at all (with maybe the exception of Radiatron and Unicron)... But I like TFC and the other JiYi brands a lot.

    Hmm, well it's spiky enough for them, but it's also show accurate. Cang Toys leans more stylized.

    It’s not unheard of for a single artist to be competent at multiple styles. David Bowie springs to mind as a great example!

    I love the Cang Toys figures thus far, they're single handedly what convinced me to start collecting seriously again.

    He can change into an owl


    You know, Jennifer Connelly has been a bit uncomfortable about her performance in this, but there is just something, resonant about how we she answers Jareth "What have you done that's generous?"

    My Firmament came in on Monday, and I continue to be impressed with the look and quality of these figures. However, mine has a couple of issues: while his ankles aren't loose per se, they aren't strong enough to hold a pose with the wings attached. Second, my left elbow is loose to the point of floppiness if he's holding anything. I suspect it's but a QC error, but I'll probably have to ask Show.Z for a replacement arm since it's glued shut.

    If anyone knows of a fix that I've overlooked, I'd be much obliged.

    They really do. But only for removal.

    Whataya mean? I think when you use the lightsaber method, they go back on better than before, right? Worked for Luke.

    Truth be told, though, I joke because I care. I'm sorry this happened to your toy, man. Hope you get it worked out. Show.z's after purchase service is top notch. I'm sure they'll be able to take care of you.
