Shoutbox

KumaStyle.com (TJ): Oh definitely. I think that there are a number of times where KOs do it better especially since they come out later and have the opportunity to rectify stuff the officially made mistakes on, May 4, 2020 16:11:43 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): I don't know how into transformers you are but the NeoArt Toys Beast Muscle Leonidas absolutely destroys the quality of the original PerfectEffect releases and even has an Eva 01 inspired variant. I try to support the original when I can but I'm not May 4, 2020 16:13:01 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): going to sacrifice quality for the sake of it. I'm with you. May 4, 2020 16:13:27 GMT -5
getterjehuty: yeah I agree with you. Quality should be high importance. I actually love FansToys products. and Yes, I do prefer Fanstoys over takara tomy.a bit controversial but I like the die cast and the accuracy of fanstoys. May 4, 2020 16:37:17 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): It's a fair statement. The MP official line has been a q.c. dice roll for years and I feel like MP-44 was such a big release that no one could avoid that elephant in the room anymore after it turned out to be a mess but I'm glad the community is May 4, 2020 16:41:22 GMT -5
getterjehuty: Isn't the Perfec Effect Leonidas have loose joint legs? May 4, 2020 16:41:22 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): at a point where they are vocal about it... and the PerfectEffect Leonidases literally have a loose everything. Even if they're half decent out of the box they seem to just go to heck sitting on a shelf after a bit and unfortunately it's pretty universal. May 4, 2020 16:42:48 GMT -5
getterjehuty: THis is my opinion but the issues of mp-44 are the knees and the paint. You have to be really careful or the paint will scratch. It is near the abdomen area side. May 4, 2020 16:44:27 GMT -5
getterjehuty: I need to ask, KumaStyle. What is your favorite EX Gokin Fewture Robot? May 4, 2020 16:45:29 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): I agree on the issues and those compounded with how incohesive the aesthetic is compared to the third party offerings that came out around the whole time was just.... ugh. Ref EX Gokin: That's a tough call and I honestly don't really think I have a May 4, 2020 17:13:56 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): favorite in terms of look and quality because it was a very consistent line for me in that regard but if someone put a gun to my head and said choose now I'd probably go with the original release Getter Dragon. I think it has May 4, 2020 17:15:11 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): the perfect mix of homaging the original design but having Sato's signature stylization while the build and articulation were pretty tops. I feel like it has the most crossover appeal to those wanting something more faithful while not having any May 4, 2020 17:16:25 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): little finicky parts that will fall off during handling like some of the others do. May 4, 2020 17:16:49 GMT -5
getterjehuty: Mine is Reideen or Shin Getter. I love their designs May 4, 2020 17:31:07 GMT -5
KumaStyle.com (TJ): Yea. Shin Getter is up there for me as well. Probably my favorite visually but it's definitely not one I like handling at all anymore. May 4, 2020 17:40:17 GMT -5
