    2800 dollars for a non-transforming action figure? That's some expensive fuckery right there.

    Welcome to the world of Model Kits where the focus is on slavishly accurate designs at the cost of mechanics like transformations. Sure, it will never be for everyone, but it's sometimes fun just to build like it is for most to transform. Though $2800 is a sizable wallet murderer

    It’s not a model kit, it’s a finished figure. The model kit is separate.


    It’s not a model though, and said model won’t be anywhere near $2800.

    Why are we talking about model kits in a thread that's not about a model kit?

    And what you're describing is exactly what Kreo was.

    Think of it as "mass shifting" for your wallet.

    At least the Threezero premium is priced reasonably at $520. Is spinning gears and 5 inches in height really worth the extra $2000 for Yoloparks version? Most people are probably gonna just leave this thing in one pose and then display it so it's not like the spinning gears amount to anything in the end besides it looking cool for 5 minutes when you get it. It's such a massive figure that posing it properly will take a good amount of effort as well.

    YoloParks version also has some stubby short and wide looking proportions going on and is even missing a few paint details that Threezero has over it. Just look at how wide and massive the hips/legs are apart. This figure will forever confuse me since you would expect better for what they're charging. I wish they did a better job all things considered. This should have been priced at around $999-$1200 max.

    Just in case, this is not a model kit. This is a fully painted an assembled action figure. Yolopark is also working on a model kit, but price is still unknown.
