    There are a couple of alternative options for tightening loose ball joints (especially ball joints that are hidden from view when assembled). You can pop the joints apart and put a piece of paper, tape or electrical tape over the ball, reassemble the joint and see if that tightens it up sufficiently. If it’s still too loose, use additional layers of paper or tape. I’ve also used heat shrink tube over the ball (the type of tubing used to protect electrical wire connections).

    Step 1). Place tubing over ball
    Step 2). Use hair dryer to shrink tubing
    Step 3). Trim any excess

    Heat shrink is an excellent idea! @fschuler

    Oh, that's neat. Not a must-have character for me, but I'd probably be more inclined to this than the McFarlane one for scale.

    Having enjoyed playing the two recent DOOM games, I wouldn't mind a well poseable doom slayer that articulates smoothly. The 3A Doom Slayer was kind of a disaster and the McFarlane is just okay.

    As deep as they are into Fate, weirdly not. Maybe because they feel that if they make her, then they'd have to commit to Berserker as well, and they seem really reluctant to do a larger-sized figure (thus far, Hulk is a one-off in that department).

    Nothing about the magical girl version and her friends, either.

    Was the Terra-formars bug even that big? AFAIK, that build still used mostly standard Figma joints in its construction. Hulk required an almost completely proprietary set-up. I think the only standardized Figma joint was in his neck?

    They should do what they did with the God Hand from Berserk but flip the script. Have the smaller figure (Illya) be just a regular figma, then the big figure (Berserker) basically be just a statue with a poseable head and maybe some alt-parts. That or maybe Sentinel could tackle Berserker... shit, I'd take a POP UP PARADE at this point.

    The bug is quite a big one indeed. I don't own Hulk to compare, but joints here are pretty standard in their shape, but they're huge in comparison with regular sized figma.

    They did some other (not that big) big figure : Love Machine from Summer wars, Ludens, that Miyazaki-Designed Monster, (I don't own this one neither, seems more tall than big) and of course, the bigger one should be Void from Berserk I think, this one being quite different from their regular release, and it's more like gigantic arms and head on a solid cape.

    Hulk didn't even use the large-size Figma joints. He had custom-molded everything (except neck).

    Why yes GSC you may have more of my money.

    In real talk I have the McFarlane Doomicorn Slayer variant but damn do I want this. Admittedly, I'd muuuuuch rather have the 2016 version because holy fuck that design was perfect while Eternal went a little too 'classic' in everything, but I ain't looking this gift horse in the mouth.

    Dear Figma,

    Metroid hype is back with a vengeance, but I don't need to tell you that, you saw Nintendo save E3, so you have 3mons to get us a Metroid Dread suit figure and I'm sure you're working on it, but it would be nice to get a Gravity Suit since it's just a simple repaint of the Prime Suit or you could do one better and give us the Super Metroid Gravity Suit, and while we're at it might as well as knock out the rest of the suits, Dark Suit, Light Suit, Phazon Suit, Dark Samus, Fusion Suit, P.E.D. Suit, and finally if I missed any, heck just give them to us anyways

    Sincerely,

    A Fan with Money dammit!!!!!

    I'm hoping they end up doing more characters like Wiz, Vanir, and Chris. We're getting an usually high number of Figmas out of Konosuba and I'm here for it.

    Nice! I'm surprised that they don't have a GSC exclusive. I am waiting for swimsuit versions for Kazutrash and Darkness. Also, I wonder if Combatants Will Be Dispatched will be picked up by Goodsmile as well considering it is from the same author.
