Nvaier (1 månad sedan) #26413863Oh, but I'm talking about the figure, and the sculptor's interpretation of Tony's character, not the actual drawing. I do have a figure based on his artwork, and its face is flat, and kinda lame looking. This one on the other hand, took the transition from 2D to 3D very well. At least in the prototype.
Ah that does make sence now that I think about it, I should've known. Yeah the figures that are based of off the artwork never makes a perfect transition to the figure. The eyes in perticular look very dull to me in most Tony Taka figures.

franjandar (1 månad sedan) #26413402Then you will like all of Tony Taka's work, his drawings have a bad case of same face syndrome, it's a very serious disease... XD

Wogrim (2 månader sedan) #25721081Hmm yeah it's going to be a no-go if the wings are opaque.It's standard to have opaque wings in first prototype, it was the same thing for other figures from Tony's artwork: PICTURE #710380, PICTURE #1182588, PICTURE #1060925...

IceMan45 (2 månader sedan) #25330366Don't forget that 90% of todays electronics are made in China... not elswhere, China. You'd be surprised that how good are some of the products that they make, but they don't sell that to other countries. It's the same case with Swiss Chocolate, you can buy expensive ones at your local store but they will never be as good as the ones sold in Switzerland.
Go on criticizin figures (that's what we are buyers for, to never be 100% satisfied) but remember that You, or for that matter no other Chinese knock-off companies, will ever be able to make a better figurine for this price.


LOL I could go on about how many TVs and electronics are failing much more now because of their (Chinese manufacturers) soldering technology for PCBs. They are meant to break quicker, stuff doesn't last as long yadda yadda---not much anyone can do about it anyways and it's not a figures topic...

However, I was actually pleasantly surprised lately to get a great quality figure from Broccoli, of all companies, which did a great paint job, skin was a healthy pink (no bland whitish skin): ITEM #287946

harrykim (3 månader sedan) #24544107I'm not convinced that quality is going up, I'm not sure if that's something you've noticed or if that's actual fact. I keep on getting disappointed with the production figure that I receive versus the painted prototype that I thought I ordered. Most figures are whitish, without a healthy pink skin color, there is no blush on the face which is advertised, the paint quality hasn't much changed in the last few years, there are still lots of defects in every figure I get. I'm not sure how much hand detailing and painting actually go into each figure, it looks mass produced to me. And maybe because they are made in China, that's why quality isn't still the greatest.

SumeriNyan (3 månader sedan) #24393990They are going up in price because the quality is getting better and inflation is a thing. They are indeed hand painted in China.
Also casting has a lot of limitations that have to be worked around to get this level of detail. For stuff this complex you have to cast multiple pieces. There's no way of avoiding it. With most figures they can hide the seams under clothing, but that's not doable with nude figures without spending a LOT more time filling in the seams of every single figure. Time = Money.
A lot of people seem to assume that Japanese figures are mass produced. They aren't. Economies of scale don't really start to kick in at the quantities these are produced. The more of something you make the cheaper it gets, but that there has to be enough demand for the target supply. They have to strike a balance between price and expected sales numbers. Having them hand painted in China is also a major bottleneck to production.

harrykim (3 månader sedan) #24355141Looks like someone has to invent a better method to do this. Figures have gone up in price so much, it's ridiculous. For $100-150 I'd expect them to be hand painted, air brushed. and sanded.
