    The Takara one will be quality though. Flame Toys have made like 2 figures and people love them. Takara has done about the same in terms of quality reset and people are still unsure.

    just by aesthetics i can compare flame toys to hot toys..prime to iron man..design looks superb..if one is buying $400+ toy, it should look and feel premium..

    Well yeah. Hot Toys makes really pricey “don’t touch that” stuff. And they don’t have as nearly much parts count. In terms of adult collectibles it’s like anime on adult swim. It’s how you treat ‘em right.

    Just that. I think they’re gonna be testing out how it works and seeing if he can bare the weight. Much like Victory Lio.

    That's really cool. Also explains why it was a bit on the truncated side as far as comparing it to the IDW model (which this figure gets some inspiration from).
