Care to elaborate on why you think they look terrible?

they look like nothing, no detail, no shading, abosulutely nothing.

granted the pre corrupted design is simplistic by default but this it looks like it crawled out of a dollar store

even this thing has more detail https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10057070/20/7

Inclined to agree in part. A panel line would be absolutely welcomed. They skipped out on a panel line on their Ultraman Manga version and it visually suffered. Then again, subtle details are starting to disappear from Tamashii products for some reason, or it appears so.

Gotta admit I'm really falling in love with my Robot Spirits Obsidian Fury. The translucent orange sawblades really pop against his black color scheme,

I’m glad I waited on the Obsidian Fury figure. The con set version has much better detail. I wish I had waited on the Gipsy Avenger but, hey, It’s still cool so I will just have a extra.

Panel lining these days has definitely turned into a premium feature.

Eh - as far as the "defacto" Obsidian Fury goes, for me it's the Bandai kit. Sure you gotta build the stupid thing, but it just looks so much better then the Damashii.

I'm thinking about getting the Robot Spirits Obsidian Fury and if/when they do Gipsy Danger, just for my Tamashi Nations shelf. However, I'll be sticking with the Diamond Select figures for the long haul. Scale better with the established NECA line and are cheaper.

Despite all my complaints I caved on the vinyls and got a Raijin. I think it really could have used a swappable "closed-plates" head, but aside from that it's quite fun! I'll take more photos when I get his two cohorts together.

Hopefully they'll show us a Mega-Kaiju at SDCC -and a "Final Battle Bracer Phoenix" with the mace arm - I don't like pulling the arm off Titan.

So not much news I see this weekend. Just a statue and a bank seem to be the new items shown at Comic Con.
