The Action Pose Thread

Recommended Posts

Is MP sideswipe a deluxe sized fig? Not last I checked.

I never said that they _were_ Deluxe sized. I said that they look to be "about Deluxe sized," then I asked you if that was a fair guesstimate or not.


And again, I don't care about getting into a debate about who gets what, and for how much. I prefer third party these days, and you prefer otherwise.

I was intentionally avoiding that debate altogether. You went and said "expensive repaints," implying that the third party toys you got are better value for money, yes? So I'd like to know HOW much better value for money they are by comparing them with their equivalent size classes, or nearest approximated size class.


I don't own those third party toys, so I need your help to let me know what the nearest approximated size class would be. MP Lambor is 15cm tall, and the average Deluxe is about 13cm. And looking at your photos, those third party toys look a tad shorter than MP Lambor, so maybe 13.5~14cm? Again, it's _just_ an estimate. Another thing to consider is engineering... some people say that MP Lambor is overpriced for a toy that's only marginally taller than a Deluxe, but of course, we both know that the engineering in that toy is well above Deluxe level, so that's something to take into consideration too (having said that, I _don't_ think Lambor is worth his RRP... but I digress :P). There's NO way I can judge the engineering quality or play value of those third party toys by looking at your photo, so again I would need to rely on YOUR opinion about it, which is why I'm asking you.


So taking in factors such as size, but also playability and engineering etc etc., which of Hasbro's TF price points would you say these third party toys are comparable with? If you think that they're better than a Deluxe, then would you say that they're more closer to a Voyager? If so, how much is the standard price of those toys compared to the RRP of a Voyager?


I'm NOT trying to engage you in a "Licensed vs Unlicensed toys" debate here, I'm JUST trying to discuss value for money, since YOU claimed that Pyro and Artfire are "expensive repaints." Of course, 'value' and 'expensive' can be subjectively interpreted, so I'm using Price Point RRPs as a fixed and objective measuring standard.

Goki, your tendency to bait others into endless nonsensical debates is legendary.


I've stated my opinion, and from this point on I'm simply going to ignore you and continue to post action poses - both with third party toys and transformers.


Have a great day!

I was NEVER attempting to engage you in a debate about licensed vs unlicensed Transformers toys. You said that Pyro and Artfire are "overpriced repaints" and doing so implied that the third party toys are better value. I'm asking you to EXPLAIN this to me. That's IT.


I mean, if you're going to ACCUSE these toys of being overpriced repaints - FINE - but be prepared to explain your viewpoint if called upon. I mean, if someone said "G1 sucks!" that's their opinion and they're entitled to it... but they better be prepared to tell us why! Likewise I'm NOT SAYING THAT YOU'RE WRONG... you said that these toys are overpriced repaints, so I'm asking WHY? At any rate, if you're unwilling to explain your opinion, then I'm not going to push you.


Anyway, here are some action poses of my own...

...and back to the third party stuff that is actually not a bunch of expensive repaints. ;)



I'm soooooo tempted to get those. I love the aerialbots and these are a fantastic homage to them. Now, if I can somehow talk my wife into not killing me when I drop $100 a piece on them..... :P

$100 each?!?



Just my opinion... but I don't think that's better value for money. Anyway, good luck with that. I have to answer to my wife if I so much as spend more than $7 on a toy! :D


Let's post our photos of Transformers with celebrities...
