Medicom/Hot Toys and all 1/6 scale figures


EXO

Recommended Posts

I did some research on the RAH301 body and this is what was posted on Sideshow Collectables Forum from Stacycmc posted in 2018/06/25

http://www.sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showthread.php?t=189327

"I'm hoping someone can help me as I'm desperately searching for replacement options for a Medicom RAH body (two actually). First my Light Yagami (Death Note) RAH had both shoulders pop off. While trying to replace his body with an Obitsu slim 27cm, his hip fell off. Yay...good quality plastic Medicom!!

Then, I'd ordered a Ginko from the Mushi-shi anime (another Medicom RAH). Get him in, and am admiring how awesome he looks....but his right arm is a bit stiff and while I'm gently posing him and trying to loosen up the joint, BAM....it snaps and his arm falls off." 

Reading on, the Kamen Rider bodies where better for that line. :unknw:

There was a swap done from the Medicom RAH301 to the Truetype Body posted here dated 2010/07/03 and it looked better.

So... A Body Swap is suggested if you don't like the RAH301 body, however it's YMMV I guess.

Thanks for sharing that, @borgified.

If only there’s someone who knows how to recreate the costume with better fabric material, I rather pay for it as long that it’s not going to flake off or deteriorate easily. I guess, the only way to do that is do a sculpt instead. Oh well, we can’t have it all. ;)

If House of Mouse bought Hot Toys, then that means Disney own a fair share of Marvel Comics as well (which I'm not surprised)

Yep: Confirmed on Wikipedia plus the Disney+ channel has all the rights to the Marvel and Fox Movies stuff.

... Disney has owned Marvel for more than 10 years already. Where were you?

They didn't buy Hot Toys. 

What's going on here?

I knew that @crackpot. Not most people know these things anyways and you can ask @no3Ljm about the Hot Toys thing, I have nothing to due with that.

I'm just being sarcastic about Hot Toys regarding their releases. They showed a bunches of prototypes from other properties years ago and those didn't come into fruition... yet. But characters pertaining to Marvel and Star Wars movies, convention prototype shown or not, they're always on it. Period. Yes, I'm aware that they're the hot commodity right now for most collectors but we have to admit that it's getting tiresome now. :aggressive:

So did anyone else pick up the Project BM Kanedas Motorbike? HLJ by far had the best price of them, AmiAmi and HobbySearch;

Read on a Figurarts thread that Amiami got hammered big time on the Kaneda's bike. Itching to spend money on another 1/6th figure (either Hot Toys, Three Zero, TBLeague or Kenada himself) it time is right.

Preorders are closed. I didn’t even know it was open. Only saw Kaneda and couldn’t find the link for the bike. I guess time to move on. Marvels End game figs will probably my last hot toys line up. Gamora shipped finally. Cap Marvel and Pubished War Machine inbound Monday. EndGame cap should be released in HK next month.

I guess twice the price of the Sideshow/HT speederbike or close to 1k USD... 

Anyone see the link for Kaneda by any chance??

Kaneda up for pre-order for $330 USD at BBTS

https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/146067

Who else has it for pre-order as well? 

Edit: Toydojo as it also

They have the bike as well, which with $4 shipping is probably pretty close to the final import prices:

I just want Kaneda if possible and Amiami has the pre-order for 26k yen, however not going to bite on it just yet. 

Really temped to get and switch the actual body with a TBL one as a replacement as we know that the Medicom body really sucks.

Is this the definitive Vader as far as 1/6’s go?  Would like to upgrade my much older one. Wondering about the materials and such used.

Its the same Vader as the previous ESB version of you missed out, nothing different just a repack and newer box (Cue the video of Lisa: "It's that same Malibu Stacy but with the new hat).  :lol: 

Check out this review then from Jedha Patrol

Just unraveled on Hot Toys Facebook and details should be on Toyark in the morning.

Ok thanks. I think mine is just a standard version they came out with a long time ago. Prob worth upgrading to this. But would really like the 1/4 scale

Ha ha ha... :lol:

Love the soundtrack music: Starts with a Classical Wedding Canata and ends up with something played on a Goonzsquad playlist.. Might as well put Trance/Electronica/Eurobeats and then end with Reggae/Ska. 

Is there a model kit version of Kaneda's Bike by any chance?

Better get a head start on building this then. Lol!

I'll take a guess on what's included in your wedding playlist:

1. 0-G Love

2. Ai Oboete Imasu Ka

3. Shao Pai Long

4. My Soul for You

5. Angel Voice

6. Lion

7. Northern Cross

Etc., etc., etc.......
