    Attention, class.

    Chomp is up for PO over at Bombusbee for anyone still looking. $15 deposit and it's unknown whether there will be a shipping charge later, so be warned.

    Apples to Apples each Fanstoys reissue has seen a price increase that I believe is driven more by the secondary market than actual increases in production costs.
    Apples to Apples, Chomp is about $100 dollars more expensive than Lupus and Dracula and I don't see why.

    Apples to Oranges Takara has stepped up their MP paint jobs to an almost fully painted figures since MP36. As for diecast, sometimes I think Fan Toys uses Diecast just for the sake of using it for added heft because some fans think that heavy figure equates to quality.

    Yeah I think we agree that comparing FT vs Takara is akin to comparing Apples to Oranges ;)

    Yeah but they've also been overcome by the fumes and went crazy with awkward body part proportions since MP-36 as well.

    There are more than some unfortunately...

    CangToys' Firmament has premium paint (premium is a stupid subjective concept), diecast, a higher part count, triple changer, and its bigger than Chomp, but somehow it's cheaper... Go figure.

    Thanks. I placed an order instead of waiting for the riot that will be the 2 second Omegalock pre-order (with added site crashing)

    That would explain my fascination with train bots after licking them.

    If you don't like the body proportions, that's on Floro Dery not Takara. Takara is just following his G1 animation models.

    It's on Takara for choosing to use as their body proportion reference, stillframe "shots" of the animation characters from angles that suffer from what is essentially the animation equivalent of parallax errors.

    People will defend anything.

    There is literally a guy in the official section of the boards who says he stopped watching a certain YouTuber because he trashed on his plastic girlfriend (I hope she hears this).

    The official Arcee is an abomination that quite honestly can only be saved by MC Rap Throne’s new chest(s) and face(s) — still doesn’t do anything about her ridiculous and overly large hiking backpack tho.
