Last week, we asked who you all thought was the best license handler for licensed products. We didn’t get as many responses as the previous discussion, but we did get soem real good points.
“I think NECA is doing a great job with their Player Select line, a diverse line of action figures from video games. I think it just needs more figures. For example, you have Hayabusa Ryu from Ninja Gaiden and the main character from Bionic Commando yet no one for them to fight, and there are TONS of enemies in their respective games for them to fight. NECA brings high articulation and exceptional detail to 7″ scale, and I think we ought to see more of it. Awesome that they have the Dead Space and Bioshock licenses.”
“Bandai Japan – For their motion revive series figure line. Extreme articulation and accessories in a tiny package for under 10 bucks. Detailing, poseability, and compatibility within this line to many vehicles and dioramas is amazingly perfect. The only Articulation system that can top hasbro with detailing. Add in the souchaku series, and other diecast figures or DX items they make, and they truly shine brightly. Easily my #1 Japanese Toy company. They maintain extreme accuracy, and loads of interactive fun without being obtrusive. But then when you see the SIC line, completely over the top and cements this spot for a good long time.”
“Bandai rarely cuts corners when it comes to the beloved franchise. I’ve felt countless instances of buyer’s remorse from buying tons of Joes at one time, but for the price of four Joes I’ve never felt guilty once for buying a single Gundam. The detailings are insane and like Shin said, they innovate like no other. Even the old Gundam figures are great for their time. The models only get better.”
Thanks to all who participated. A new discussion will be up shortly.
