I rather they just continue to improve their PERS. Just look at what Hot Toys has been able to achieve with their PERS system, even though it took them until last year to finally achieve it. INART is in that early phase where the eyes, or maybe eyelids, are a bit too thick. They can definitely continue to improve in that area instead of resulting to just going with a static painted eye.People should definitely send messages to inart via facebook saying that the eyes on all of their figures are set too deeply. I'd prefer normal sculpted eyes over these.
Ordered mine from Spec Fiction. Considering people who ordered the Joker through them are just now getting them, I guess I'll see mine next year.Mindblowingly good! I've never seen a figure survive proto to production this well EVER! Can't wait!
......but I will....ordered mine from KGHobby
Are you planning on doing any Middle Earth inspired bases for these (or any other LOTR) figures?I’d like to see a side by side with a properly futzed Asmus using the updated sculpt too.
InArt looks tops. The rooting and paint work are spectacular albeit the hair is a bit too poofy in Justine’s pics. Clothing looks awesome.
I still don’t like the derpy look of the PERS on this and I still see more Ian in Asmus sculpt than I do in IA’s although overall IA’s looks far more realistic due to the superior rooting and paint apps.
Honestly I’m not sure how they got away with it, it’s basically a scam when you compare the final product to the prototype.I'd like to see the Asmus sculpt in the trash can Seriously, the quality drop from their prototype to that monstrosity they released, it's just inexcusable.
I like what HT are doing with their SRE system a lot. So far the most recent figures shown with it look amazing, especially Sabine. The old PERS I can definitely do without.Are you planning on doing any Middle Earth inspired bases for these (or any other LOTR) figures?
And I agree, the PERS eyes definitely not help any of these figures. I understand people like them to avoid the deadstare we get with so many figures but I don't think we're at the point that these eyeballs are truly advancing the hobby. Not yet anyway.
They need to convince themselves that they didn’t waste their money.There's people in the comments of Justin video saying they prefer Asmus version, I have the Asmus version in front of me, are they trolling or am I missing something. Genuine question haven't collected long the difference in quality to my eyes is huge, or maybe I'm needing new prescription
You rather have cross eyes that you cant fix at all? Its always a good thing to have more control. Anyway these figures should be given the time to futz.I don't get the love for the seperate moving eyes, I hate them on Hot Toys figures. It's so clunky and time consuming trying to get both eyes to sit right.
Same. The individual eyes aren't hard to align either in my experience. Like futzing any other part of the figure, it takes patience to get right but once you do, your figure can look pretty amazing. However, for some folks who prefer to just take their figure out of the box and plop them on a stand without any sort of adjusting the way you see some figures being sold on eBay, I guess can see the frustration with having to put a little effort into the display.I'd rather separate eyes than take the risk of PERS that arrive wonky from the factory. That's the main issue for me.
One InArt Joker sculpt arrived fine and the other was a little wonky, and there's nothing that can be done other than remove the mechanism so that they're separate joysticks. Range of motion seems to be better when separate too. In most cases I'd rather they just be painted though.
Agreed! Given how much we pay for these things, I don't see why it's too much to ask to put them together with a little time and care.You rather have cross eyes that you cant fix at all? Its always a good thing to have more control. Anyway these figures should be given the time to futz.
