in this hobby. to some, it might matter but to others, it probably won't. detail really matters, even down to the smallest detail. when looking at quality vs quantity. i always favor even the smallest details. with the price they'll be putting on this figure, but assuming its competitively as well. still $300-600 isn't exactly chump change to most people, but whatever is the best representative media that exists for said character, i will line up for if i truly love the character.Here’s my point of view. Technology in toys have greatly advanced from the past couple years and it makes people more spoiled and basically want more everytime. At this point companies like inart is replicating insane details that hot toys doesn’t really focus on. They have the technology to 3D print the right things and have talented artists working together to create something so innovative. One example is that if they can pay attention to details such as this, why are aspects like the shoulder pads drastically different from the references? They can easily make these technical changes if they wanted to.
Everyone’s eyes are different, but it helps to see new perspectives so when companies like JND bring their own 1:6, they might do something right/wrong compared to their competitors. It helps all collectors decide the pros and cons, considering price.
Statues, 1:6, 1:4 will never be 100% on par with real life.. no matter how many mods you put on a figure, but for many people on this forum it’s probably relieving to brainstorm ideas to see how we can improve it ourselves. Not because we’re better but for fun.
Nothing is ever perfect? Perfect is very subjective for everyone, at the end of the day it depends on the person’s expectations.
I will 100% still preorder this masterpiece, but still interesting to see on small things they can work on before the final product.
personally i think the joker turned out good on a mass produced scale, at least for initial pictures. it of course won't compare to gettin git professionally painted and haired. i still see minor inaccuracies with his hair, but it is still very impressive what they can put out for this price range. anything under $1000 when comparing to customs is really reasonable for what they're charging people.
many artists have proven that there is still more that can be done and that hot toys is playing a very safe and stagnant game. magnetic bases have been a thing. granted i can only really recall kaustic plastik being the big one who's implemented magnetic bases, but i heard some figures had really bad ankles. im just very curious how inart can improve from that without making the whole leg a solid piece.
but due to the nature of how much these things costs. these simply aren't toys. no kid or an adult would label $400 figures as simply a toy. but they can be in someone's eyes, they bought it. details are very appreciated and important even at smaller scales like these, actually more impressive i would say at smaller scales if they are able to capture even the smallest bit of detail. people should be aware of inaccuracies if these companies are attempting to replicate characters from movies into figures at such a high price
