General thread for new announcements, and ec, as well as for one-offs that don't get enough different figures in their line to warrant their own thread.

Just saw this.

which lead me to think... No.. it... can't be...

I'm so ridiculously excited for the Ranma figures. I never thought it would happen.

I'm gonna buy a handful of them too, to keep multiple poses and paint some different colors.

I hope the line does well enough to release some other characters too, particularly some villains. Give me Herb, Ryu, and Saffron!

I gotta say one of the upcoming Figuarts I'm most excited about it from their Ultra-Act line, Ultraman Shinjiro Hayata, from the current manga sequel to the original Ultraman show. I love the new designs so far and I'm hoping we get some figures of the new Aliens as well. Be Mular and UltraSeven would make very cool toys. Has anyone else been reading this manga?

Figuarts Vader's biggest competition is probably the MAFEX one, the REvoltech won't stand a chance. THe Figuarts one looks nice, though I'm not sure which one I will personally prefer....

the consumers love them. Ultraman isnt their best selling products though, around the 3.0 while kamen rider reaches 20.0 easily (their highest scoring product. but the numbers are dropping though and dragonball is rising :p

I prefer the figma. I don't really need two in the same outfit since Max Factory seems to be working on variants on other characters, so that'll be costly.

I think the last anime before those was Zoids, can't think of any others in between, so I basically don't anime at all.

Bluefin sounded pretty optimistic about these so looks like it. So far Batman is the only design that really popped. Superman and Harley look pretty decent and I'm up for a decent Superman anytime. Though when I get Batman, I'll see how much I like it before getting Joker too.

Also, has anybody noticed that Superman won't have a shoulder/bicep swivel joint? I'm not sure if I like that or not. The visual of it looks great but I hope it doesn't restrict any potential movement.

Kaiyodo's Revoltech (http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/star-wars-action-figures/147228-kaiyodo-revoltech-figures.html) has a similar style. Darth Vader is available now. Stormtrooper, C-3PO, and R2-D2 are next.

If Max Factory makes Figmas, those will have an anime style. Look at their Avengers, Indiana Jones, and 'Thriller' Michael Jackson for an idea.

Loving the Injustice S.H. Figuarts. Joker is fantastically well done, especially the faces. Batman is freaking awesome too. It's a very difficult figure to get accustomed to but, once you do, there's a limitless amount of posing abilities. I wish there were more faces for him though. I can't wait for Harley and Superman.

How're you dealing with the cape, Angelo? I'm not too impressed with how they did it. I wish they would go with cloth capes with metal wires!

I actually like it, a lot. The color detail on it is fantastic. I honestly wouldn't have liked a cloth cape on this figure. I feel this is the best cape I've seen on a Batman figure because it really captures the wings of a bat presence, if that makes any sense. I do think their is a lot of room for improvement but I'm really satisfied with how it came out.

Is the Mafex Batman going to have the cloth cape with the metal wires?

I think Superman's cape is going to be an easy drop-like appearance, which it should be. Speaking of... (CAN'T WAIT!)

Edited: It actually appears to be similar to the Batman cape, in terms of movement.

Not too impressed with Revoltech's Vader. He looks somewhat scrawny and that cape design is HORRIBLE.

Completely agreed. I'm going with either the Figuarts or MAFEX one,

The only downside so far to the Figuarts is that they need to make him taller. He's only slightly taller than the Stormtroopers. In the movies, he's almost a full head taller than them.

That's a major part of why I'm leaning more towards the MAFEX. It does look nice, but if the MAFEX is better in scale, I'm definitely buying that one.

Does anyone know where that stand is from? It's similar to the tamashii one, but the base is totally different as is the thing you hang the figure on.

These look AMAZING! Tamashii has stepped up their game in past year.

I was real nervous that they would pre-order sell out really quick and was right. I was watching BBTS like a hawk when these figures popped up and got all my pre-orders in. Anything with the word "Avengers" on it nowadays is like gold....or instant $$$ dolla bills for Marvel/Disney.

However, considering the large orders for these figures, it might incentivize Tamashii to make more available and perhaps do other figures from the movie. They've already hinted at the Hulkbuster.

Not really feeling hulk or any other human Avengers head sculpt. The only one that looks decent is Iron Man. However, their Jedi Luke sculpt looks amazing.

I think with SHF, it's better to stick to their robots and anime lines and go to HT for human / movie characters.

Bardoon
04-05-2015, 09:43 PM
For this scale though, they look pretty solid! I actually think Figma does even worse with "human" sculpts than Figuarts. And with other companies like Hasbro's Marvel and Mattel's DC...it's really give-and-take. They got some good ones and bad ones...

Hulk's sculpt could've turned out a little better but I like Cap and Thor. They are slightly cartoony but it's easy for me to overlook that because you know the articulation and quality will be top-notch.

I used to regularly collect some 6-inch lines until American companies quality got worse...Figuarts is bringing me back to that scale! Even though they're slightly smaller...

You might be limited on choices and should probably pre-order Hulk VERY soon.

I contacted one vendor I usually buy from and he reported back that the distributor (likely Bluefin Distribution who distributes all of Tamashii's stuff to the US) has stated they "might not be able" to fulfill all their orders and thus, this vendor will likely not be putting the Avengers up for pre-order unless Bandai-Tamashii decides to increase the production numbers.

TheToySource.com also has Hulk for pre-order. I can vouch for them as I've ordered a lot from them in the past.

I have yet to see a comparison pic for hasbro vs SHF Darth Vader which is my go to vader. But articulation revo is better but accurate heights matter to me and the revos are taller than shf vader so that wont work so waiting for someone to display shf vader with hasbro trooper since that's my second choice.

Didn't know the Black Series was made by Hasbro. I mean in regards to overall quality, articulation, and accuracy. I'm getting the Figuarts Darth Vader so the Revoltech is out of the question. The Figuarts one just looks derpy to me and a little chunky for a storm trooper. I read the Black Series one's have some quality control issues though.

Not really, each character is distinct with their own costumes that look similar to the comic books. Killer Croc looks fine. He looks no different than he did in his first appearance in the Batman comics or in the Joker graphic novel. To each their own.

I know, right? She was born for that role. I'm digging the mask for Deadshot. I honestly didn't expect them to give him a mask in the first place since it's Will Smith. I hope he keeps it on for a decent amount of his screen time in action.

The actor is decently tall and he looks pretty menacing in up close pictures. I didn't expect him to be as tall as The Lizard but it'll be interested to see what they do with him. Hopefully he eats a lot of people.

Is there an Injustice Killer Croc? (Omitted the S.H. Figuarts after re-reading it.) I thought I remember them talking about making Bane but I don't know how well the line is selling if it'll even get a further release after Superman.


To those that have Figuarts Batman, do you know if the Figuarts Avengers will be more or less the same height?

I figure same, maybe slightly shorter. Batman's ear points are as high as Super Saiyn Goku's hair point.

All the Western distributors are somewhat "unsure" whether they will be able to meet all their orders. I think most of them are trying to play it on the safe side...

Apparently, there are several stories going around on why there is a "shortage" of all these figures.

One is that there are licensing issues with Marvel and Star Wars figures at that scale and Hasbro holds the "master license" for figures of that scale in countries like the U.S.A. and China. Due to these "licensing laws", the figures cannot see mass release in those countries. Recognizing this, Bandai-Tamashii has reduced their production numbers and has even "cut back" on the production numbers that they CAN release overseas...likely because they anticipate large sales at home that will bring in more profit. These figures are competition for Hasbro, and even though they won't be in brick & mortar stores, they do cut into the collectible and specialty retail market that Hasbro probably wouldn't want them to. Sideshow has commented in the past about Hasbro's "master license" with Star Wars.

These are a big deal with a lot of legal jargon: Toy License Agreement - Lucas Licensing Ltd. and Hasbro Inc. - FindLaw (http://corporate.findlaw.com/contracts/operations/toy-license-agreement-lucas-licensing-ltd-and-hasbro-inc2.html)

That being said...it's still possible they can see a "wider" release in the near future. Remember the Movie Realization Samurai Vader and Stormtrooper? Those were initially Eastern market only releases but have recently been announced to have a special US Release. Likely because Bandai and Hasbro agreed to some deal or Bandai got around the licensing issue since the figures are based on Samurai interpretations of the characters. Either way, Hasbro would be stupid to not look at the option of allowing them for wide distribution in the West at Collectible online shops if they can profit off them some how.

I'm kinda hesitant on ordering Figuarts Vader, for a few reasons:

First, his helmet doesn't come off, or, he doesn't come with an extra head with his helmet off. You can remove his severed hand but not his helmet, wtf? Seems kinda lazy

Second, his cape isn't removable either. I know this is optional but it's also integral to my next point

Thirdly, while the Death Star stage scene they made with it is cool, there is also another "playset" they could've made: his meditation chamber.

As any fan knows, Vader sits in here without his cape & helmet. I feel like Tamashii can make a Figuarts Vader ver. 2 where all of these features are included, otherwise this standard release feels rushed to me. What do you guys think?

I have a couple of these in hand and believe the cape is removable. It is attached by two tabs on the back of the shoulders...but they aren't glued in place (at least mine aren't). Just pop off the head and remove the cape I believe. The dome itself can be removed with a little gentle "negotiation". I may be wrong - I will check the figure tonight.

I would rather save my money for other figures. I'm only getting Iron Man Mark 45 and Captain America from the Avengers line.

The Hulkbuster is really cool but I have no interest in a Hulk/Iron Man display that'll be close to around $350.

I would rather save my money for other figures. I'm only getting Iron Man Mark 45 and Captain America from the Avengers line.

Haha I feel ya. Guess if ur not getting hulk no need for hulkbuster. I always wanted the HT movie figs, never liked the ML ones. I feel these are as close to HT as its gonna get for the prices they go for

Yeah, definitely. I mean they are insanely detailed. It's a good what, $600 difference between the S.H. Figuart and Hot Toy? This is definitely an amazing substitute.

$900 is ****ing insane. Alex Blas from Ageless Geeks has said that Bluefin already mentioned that they should be able to get Hulkbuster stateside. When ever there's an update with him and Bluefin, I'll post it on the thread.

Is Bandai crazy? Probably not because people will pay this out of control price, but still. Yeesh...

I'm so glad I'm not really a fan of the Avengers lol :) I did order Hulk though because it'll be so much fun to use him in little toy comics to fight Superman and Broly :)

When toys reach the price of a common man's monthly earnings, it becomes less feasible to buy :(

This price is probably due to the "chogokin" choice. I have a Buzz Lightyear from chogokin and it is the heaviest toy I have. All diecast, no plastic. But this price is insane, I'll think again whether it is worth $300

The face plate, feet, something around the neck, and I think a few other pieces. I would say 5 - 10% diecast.

Edited: There's a picture going around with the pieces.
