what is the hype about. 09/09/14(Tue)21:28 UTC+1 No.4408823 Report

I Found a bunch of these at the local walgreens. ALL of them had shitty paint apps. I mean, not just a little off, WAAAAY off. Spotty, thin gross paint.

I put it back on the shelf and never looked back.

People like the character. When a figure of a character you like exists, it's easy to forgive things like less-than stellar paint apps and whatnot.

I guess that's understandable. And at $15 I guess you can't really expect much.

Exactly. I haven't read any comics since the 90's, so I have no clue why someone named Venom is carrying guns, but yeah, seems popular.

Hasbro continues to shit in your mouths and every time you open them back up, you say "well, how do we know it's going to be shit again?"

We expect things to have good paint jobs at even $3, just like we did get for the past 30 years.

Hasbro is really fucking things up lately with their paint jobs, but it seems to be an industry wide problem. For whatever reason, paint jobs have been coming out like shit from so many toy companies.
WTF is going on in China?

exact paint apps from the mid 00s and mid 80s for $3 figures.

They could still do a good job even just 3 years ago and these cost ~$8 each.

Bad paint jobs from mass market non-bootlegs toys aren't excusable for any amount

meant to post this, since a lot of people here only like clean toyetic paint jobs and dislike anything with any sort of weathering.

There are only a few actual paint apps here though. A lot of those differently colored parts are separately molded parts or tampographs.

THATS RIGHT!

Same shit, higher price, but somehow expectations are lower? FUCK THAT.

and then some circa 2012 Marvel fan picked it up without noticing anything wrong. guess using the cheaper labor payed off.

face it, mainstream success of the IPs is turning Hasbro guys greedy. bet there's someone there comparing his income to RDJ's and thinking he deserves as much for making toys of him.

I can give a brief explanation. Flash Thompson, now back from the war in the middle east, yadda yadda yadda, he has the Venom Symbiote now, not a villain and basically the Punisher, but with more tactical tentacles.

That's my point, unlike OP's Flash.
Toys from before at least had clean paint apps and were placed where it should be.

Even with lines that did have mishaps (like the first waves for this), we still were able to find cleanly placed paint apps among the racks. It's hard to say that now.

I believe the intended point of all of these pictures is to evidence decades of well done paint-apps. Not the most concrete argument however, considering collection site photographers would arguably buy the best painted one from the pegs.

The white paint they used is shit. Maybe if they weren't so busy counting your money they could get this shit right.

It's like you don't even live in the US to be able buy a toy in person from racks full of cheap toys.

The good paint jobs almost always outnumbered the poorly painted toys 5:1, if not all of them were identical. "Almost always" because there was the rare exception where an entire case/wave had fucked up QC.
Nowadays, which is to say, it was only 2 years ago where paint apps were spot on 98% of the time, it's just the opposite. You'll find spotty paint apps everywhere, from missing colors to derpy eyes. And it's not even relegated to a single company neither.
i'd post an image to example this with a recent MonsterArts figure, but it seems 4chan is fucking up.

because walmart doesn't want entire cases of just a single figure, especially when they're only going to sell for $15.

It's actually ~$7.
Still no reason for paint jobs to have turned so bad in only just 2 years, since we're actually paying more today than we used to back then.
Nevermind that we used to get more complex paint jobs too.....
