Anybody in need of Goku Black?
15% off = SUMMERFUN
Barens&Noble: Goku Black
Thanks for the heads up.
Only a couple more hours before that coupon expires (2:59 am est).
got my Yamcha/tien upgrade kit yesterday but did not have a chance to open it yet.
Yea I was kinda blown myself, the one in DC is @ Otakon, which I was going to attend anyway, but I hoped the tamashii nations thing was their own show.
The Tien Yamcha kit was worth the 30 bucks for me. I haven't put on the Yamcha head , but the Tien piece shoulda came with the official release. Really improved the figure.
Looks like Demoniacal Fit won't stop anytime soon.
Where does one get these upgrade sets?
I got mine from ToyArena.
Demoniacal Fit Upgrade for Tien Shenhan and Yamcha, Toyarena
Edit: pre-order price was $29 shipped to me so looks like they raised the price some.
you’re welcome, i really like this set i can’t wait to see what else they put out.
I think I'm gonna go with SHF Batman over the Mafex because even though the cape is a million times better on the Mafex, I actually think the SHF looks better.
Now, to de-wire the cape, or to not?
I'm hearing that it is fake since it wasn't posted on their official website and that it was posted on a recently created Facebook page that does look fake.
Wow. I hope those kits are heads(and are real) ... I would love to be able to buy hands and head kits. I also would like if they made sleeve pieces to replace those dumbass figuarts sleeve pieces. I'm going to buy their Ginyu as well. Hope it's good, would love to see them get to making figs Bandai probably won't, like Babidi , Raditz, Nail, King Cold, Cooler, Pikkon...
They are fun for posing so I say keep em.
Mafex figures kinda remind me of GI Joe's especially how the waists on mine have gotten. This makes them a little more difficult to stand. They pay more attention to detail, but honestly mine have ended more like statues because how they're constructed, having to pose them a certain way to hold a pose. Annoying. If they were 30 bucks it'd still be annoying. Mafex figures annoy me, they're somewhat in their own weird scale and the molds are great, but often wind up like 10 dollars GI Joe's with floppy legs and waists.
What makes you think that page is fake?
More things teased :
That's what really turned me off the Mafex, the stories of bad QC. Especially since the whole reason I want a six inch Batman is to actually pose and handle it. I've got the Hot Toys if I just want a statue basically.
Also, I like the idea of a wire cape, but it looks so bulky and cheap.
I have both and the Mafex has a more accurate sculpt IMO. Hips of the Figuarts completely break the sculpt. Some details are sharper on the Figuarts but overall I like the Mafex more. I left the Figuarts Batman on the Bat Pod for now and put the Mafex next to the other TDK Mafex Figures.
Finally a Thanos gallery:
S.H.フィギュアーツ サノス レビュー : はっちゃか
Home releases need to come quickly to see if this size is accurate or not, and to check if he snapped with his right of left hand.
^ I think Thanos demonstrated a right-handed 'finger snap' when he was talking to Strange before the Titan fight started.
That one I know of, but I find it strange they didn't add a snapping left hand.
Yep, he really should have had a left snapping hand too...
If I'm recalling correctly, the actual snap was done with the gauntlet as Thor was destroying it. One final act using it before it was too late, then escaping.
