Tired of this nonsense. What's coming up next, Tamashii? I swear, you'd think they WANT SHMA to die, the way they treat it like a red-headed stepchild. Pony UP, you shits, or let it die, if you think the NA market is not that important. And you can take that lame ALIEN/Predator sh*te & SHOVE IT...

They KNOW we'll buy it, but sick of them letting us dangle... :mad:

Calm down. Release in Jan, two releases in Feb, two months off, then a release in May.

You have fuckin' issues, dude. I think it's time to get off the computer and get some air.

I mean, what are you, 6 years old? You claim to be like, what, in your forties? You're a trip, man.

I'm tired of their sh*t, releasing stuff that NO ONE in NA has heard of. They KNOW that the NA market is gobbling up SHMA, & they don't frickin' care. WE don't want AVP, when NECA is doing stuff for $20, & THEIR stuff is at least TWICE that in price! We want KAIJU, & at this point they have NO CLUE how to proceed, as all the 'safe choices' are gone. Get some BACKBONE, Tamashii...

Dude, you don't want AVP, that's fine. But who is this "we" you speak of? Don't pretend you speak for everyone or that you know their business better than themselves.

I could come up with better choices for SHMA than Tamashii. Don't tell me that none of you think that...

I remember you doing the same song and dance the last time we went ever so slightly longer than usual without an announcement. Same shit, almost point for point, I think.

"They're releasing stuff no one wants!"
"Do they want SHMA to die off?"
"The NA market doesnt matter to them!"
"Where's the next announcement?"
"They have no idea what they're doing!"

Exactly. They did Wolf because he's a fan favorite. They screwed the pooch hard with it, though, but saying "we" don't want Wolf is an opinion which includes maybe Manda and the mouse in his pocket.

Wrong there boyo. I say make more AVP stuff. Just don't bother releasing it in Japan. They aren't that popular over there. Just make them American exclusives, and they could probably see an increase in sales maybe.

I'd be interested. There are plenty of monsters that I need beams for.

Also, what about a custom laser horn for Destoroyah?

I'm sure there are plenty of toys all of us want which haven't been released. I'd jump on anything Showa related. But I'm actually happy their kaiju releases are sort of slowing down because I'm on a budget and both Gamera and MKG are appealing to me and that's 250 bucks between both. I''m hoping Legion will be released, but could you imagine that price tag? Ugh.

The 'mouse' is not in Manda's pocket, but in his fist, like a .357 Mag revolver( which I own AND carry around at work ), & I'm sick of Tamashii's bullsh*t...

Then do something about it, tough guy.

Like, ya know...stop giving them your money if their business practices offend you so much.

Yes, we heard you the first two times. Dude, I'm not trying to be an armchair mod, but I think you should log off and relax.

Then don't buy their products.

Thank you. Contrary to what people may think, there are some who want AVP merchandise.



Oh, and one more thing, Manticore.

Just chill, Manda. This isn't the first time that this has happened. Hell, if we can go 10 years without a Godzilla film, 12 for a Toho made Godzilla film, we can go a few months without any information about some expensive, multi-articulated figurines. The way you're handling this is similar to that of a child throwing a tantrum.
Well, that's certainly a thing.

I actually like the aliens and would love to have some more made. I like very highly articulated figures of those creatures (no interest in the predators though but still part of the franchise) which aren't revoljunk joints. They just need to put a bit more effort, scale and QC into them next time. I'll still buy. Neca have their place but I also think that the SHMA versions have their own place too. I place not actually filled by anything at the moment, which is a real opportunity.

On that line I would LOVE some Jurassic park/world dinosaur figures. Particularly some raptors. Just imagine a super articulated raptor finally :'D. My first very own bought toy was a Jurassic park brown raptor. Still have it. Doesn't move much, but it was the shit back then.
