What is this hunched, no-neck abomination? The proportions make me want to rocket myself into the center of the sun via projectile vomiting.ReplyDelete
Well, this is a Mega Man figured produced by Jakks Pacific. It's not of super-high quality, but it looks great for what it is. A welcome, mainstream effort to be seeing in stores.Delete
But it's rhetorical exaggeration like that, seen almost everywhere on the net, that makes the fanbase look bad. It's not clever, cute, or funny. It's ungrateful and unhelpful.
For anyone expecting something like say, the X-Plus Gigantic Mega Man figure or even a D-Arts, your expectations are set too high.
it looks ok and it's clearly meant for kids to play with. if you want a great-looking mega man figure to display, we already have tons, like the kotobukiya and d-arts ones.Delete
$42.99 for something low quality like this is honestly insulting.ReplyDelete
it's because this abomination is 12 inches tall, and full of electronic soundmaking stuffDelete
Oh my gosh. So ugly figure. Japan version is so much better looking. @_@ReplyDelete
$42.99 isn't really worth it IMO. You can probably get a sentinel figure with that much moneyReplyDelete
That looks pretty bad, like a scaled up McDonalds toy.ReplyDelete
sound effects are a neat gimmick, but it looks like a budget d-arts or 4 inch nelReplyDelete
(I'm surprised nobody has complained about the shape of the rolling cutter.)ReplyDelete
Anyway, this is clearly a toy for actual children ... but it's strangely not priced like a toy for kids, and seems to hover somewhere between that and a "collectible" price range.
This product definitely isn't for me, as I think Jakks is obviously a toy company aimed at making stuff which young kids can literally throw around. The price-point is all wrong though; I think for $10-$15 less they would not only attract more casual buyers (like parents who aren't 100% certain their kid will like this figure) and collectors who think this isn't perfect, but would add it to their collection just out of curiosity.
BBTS is also generally a little overpriced, especially with pre-orders; in 6 months there will still plenty of these around at other vendors, and they'll probably have dropped to what they are worth, which is (in my opinion) in the $25 range.
I'll pass on this regardless of the price ... unless it's $20, and my kid (who has a passing interest in Mega Man) likes it.
this is better than a disgusting pachinko machine.ReplyDelete
