    There is too much hate already everywhere... Do we really need to hate on people doing what they love?

    I don't think people hate people, they just give their opinions on toys in the end?

    But i understand it can hurt feeling but i guess this will always happen when producing a toy.

    I hear you, but I like that people are pretty straightforward here, about both loves and hates. Sometimes I end up appreciating a toy more after getting the full story on this thread, like with Savage King just recently. Still not for me, but having context for it actually makes me enjoy the design a bit more.

    I bought a savage king, I like it. I’m excited to get that foot tall red demon. Despite the Social media influencers trying to dissuade me.

    I think it's alright. I like the face but the volume of faces and weird upside-down triangle size is a bit....yeah.

    Either way, it's a Hell of a lot better than his Hitler head collab with Tan.

    Nothing on this thread is about hate, and I'm curious why you would think that. At best, its art criticism and at worst its having a bit of a laugh taking the piss. Seriously, if you make things and put them up on the internet to sell, you cannot expect everyone to like what you do. Criticism is healthy, if artists just have their arses constantly kissed, they will never grow and improve. This thread is about voicing opinions on expensive bits of plastic, not hating on the artists who made them.

    I'm French, you're Brit, better not... You haven't swallow the pill of the 100 years War defeat and we haven't swallow the oz of Napoléon's defeat...

    I actually like the body with the multi-face thing because it's pretty clean. Doesn't do the over textured thing that so many people love these days. Reminds me of the old MaBa stuff and the really old bootleg Madball that had three faces all connected waaaaaaay before Nag did it. Not a fan of the heads though. They look like some kind of two-headed Krampus.

    @Waterbear Now that you mention it, the torso faces do have a super Ma Ba vibe. Especially in the brows. I do dig on the heads because of the Krampus style, though. Reminds me of Satan in Legend loosely. Like they’d be minions. I don’t hate the design of the torso, but the proportions do throw it off for me. I’m not diggin’ the lower face/tongue dick, and the legs are too scrawny. Overall, it’s not a terrible toy, and as always, seein’ one in person can sway me. I also think the little body it’s holding should’ve been an omake.

    I kind of like how it has a little body in one hand and the torn off head in the other. You are spot on though, it does look like the devil depicted in some old book about witches and demons or something which is pretty cool. Maybe I'm just tired of the two-headed thing after seeing so many the last couple of years both good and bad.

    I know lots of people are excited about this thing but something about it just bugs me. I can't figure out what it is though. Technically it is really well done and it's based on Godzilla who I love and it's huge which is pretty cool. Still I can't seem to make myself like it at all.

    Never seen it, and I would never want it. Plus those leg joints do not look good

    This should absolutely be the villain in the new Sonic the Hedgehog movie. I can’t not see this as a Dr. Robotnik creation. The dichotomy between the mechanical body and the Godzilla heads and legs just doesn’t flow at all. They’re too opposing in proportion and texture. It’s well executed, in terms of how the 3D printing came out, but it just looks like a mashup of two designs that should’ve never come together.

    All of this mash up bugs me, but especially the leg position. As if it’s trying to take a robotic shit.

    I'll tell you 1 thing, that sculpt is riveting. (Insert sad trombone sound here)

    Those legs joints are the vinyl equivalent to “Fat guy in a little coat”

    Is it just me or are super top-heavy toys the latest "trend"? I've seen entirely too many toys that are basically upside down triangles lately: TKOM's new Double Think, this, Izu's new TAG sculpt....

    All the sneak previews and leaked details looked promising. Unfortunately the final product does not equal the sum of its parts. :?

    I do like the arms on it though. It reminds me of a Big O mecha with its ridiculous proportions and rivets/steampunkish vibe.
