    I think Badteethcomics has some valid points in his rants, S7 have none. Then again I saw this and was led to beleive the burger dude was sofubi from Japan !
    I'm confused but don't like any of it (not even Godzilla), so I can walk off unruffled :)

    I think you would be surprised by how many big Japanese vinyl companies have moved their production to China and not said a thing and no one has noticed.

    Who cares about the Hikari advertising, it's still truthful, probably more truthful than 90% of the other shit we consume in our lives.

    The battle is just beginning guys. Today I found this ceramic camera man picture holder masquerading as kaiju at a local office supply store.

    That's what initially got me into collecting this stuff. I also just found a lot of it aesthetically pleasing.

    I'm not going to express my opinion's about Funko, but I'll keep collecting vinyl that's made in Japan. Many of these artist have been very nice and helpful to me over the years. Love my collection.

    this beaK don't tweet nor hashtag gesprechen!

    Words of advice for young people-

    People often ask me if I have any words of advice for young people.
    Well here are a few simple admonitions for young and old.
    Never intefere in a boy-and-girl fight.
    Beware of whores who say they don't want money.
    The hell they don't.
    What they mean is they want more money. Much more.
    If you're doing business with a religious son-of-a-I FART A LOT,
    Get it in writing.
    His word isn't worth shit.
    Not with the good lord telling him how to fuck you on the deal.

    Avoid fuck-ups.
    We all know the type.
    Anything they have anything to do with,
    No matter how good it sounds,
    Turns into a disaster.
    Do not offer sympathy to the mentally ill.
    Tell them firmly:
    I am not paid to listen to this drivel.
    You are a terminal boob.

    Now some of you may encounter the Devil's Bargain,
    If you get that far.
    Any old soul is worth saving,
    At least to a priest,
    But not every soul is worth buying.
    So you can take the offer as a compliment.
    He tries the easy ones first.
    You know like money,
    All the money there is.
    But who wants to be the richest guy in some cemetery?
    Money won't buy.
    Not much left to spend it on, eh gramps?
    Getting too old to cut the mustard.

    Well time hits the hardest blows.
    Especially below the belt.
    How's a young body grab you?
    Like three card monte, like pea under the shell,
    Now you see it, now you don't.
    Haven't you forgotten something, gramps?
    In order to feel something,
    You've got to be there.
    You have to be eighteen.
    You're not eighteen.
    You are seventy-eight.
    Old fool sold his soul for a strap-on.

    Well they always try the easiest ones first.
    How about an honorable bargain?
    You always wanted to be a doctor,
    Well now's your chance.
    Why don't you become a great healer
    And benefit humanity?
    What's wrong with that?
    Just about everything.
    Just about everything.
    There are no honorable bargains
    Involving exchange
    Of qualitative merchandise
    Like souls
    For quantitative merchandise
    Like time and money.
    So piss off Satan
    And don't take me for dumber than I look!

    William S. Burroughs

    Re: Funko Sofubi?!?!?

    I guess the frustration isn't really apparent for people who don't routinely search Instagram for toys to look at.
    I'll put it as simply as possible...

    When you're looking for apples, and keep getting the occasional orange, and it keeps on happening... Well, you're going to get reaaaally sick of that shit before long.

    Backing out of this now before it goes toxic again, yeesh.

    Here here! Been thinking the same thought for awhile. Plenty of the board members have great points
    and all that jazz, but I'm sick of seeing this popping up in new posts. To hell with Funko, none of us care
    nor they care about us.

    Normally, the first question is, Are these cannibals? No, they are not. Cannibalism in the truest sense of the word implies an interspecies activity. These creatures PREY on humans. They do not prey on each other, that's the difference. They attack and they feed ONLY on warm flesh. Intelligence? Seemingly little or no reasoning power, but some retain basic skills that they learned in their former life. These creatures are nothing but pure, motorized instinct. We must not be lulled by the concept that they are our family members or our friends. They are not. They will not respond to such emotion.

    BUSTED!

    anyways..and no I'm not "deep" in with Funko. I know people who work there, yes. Super7's relationship is one of Reaction and that is it. This isn't about "protecting funko", they sincerely don't need me to protect them from what someone is saying skullbrain. This is the difference between what I say and what you say.. is I actually know people at Funko, have had talks with them about the Hikari. So you can make stabs at the dark about what you think their grand scheme is when I'm literally telling you what the deal is. You don't care. You have an agenda, I stated it early in the thread and you just continue to go on and on.

    Everyone argues about what is Kaiju, what is sofubi, what are fight figures, what is pachi kaiju. The truth is I'm over it. I've been in this industry 24/7 for 7 years and I'm over the cry babies.

    This is where I promote my book "BEATEN BY THE FISTS OF GOD..ZILLA." The unaltered truth of the vinyl toy industry. Coming as soon as I receive my advance. Scary Andy will be signing my UK copies for me. Mark Helm will sign my Japanese copies for me and Lorne will sign my east coast copies. It will come with a Japanese made Mini Cheestroyer.

    Re: Funko Sofubi?!?!?

    As much as I feel my points have flown over a few heads and feel the need to hammer the point into their skulls, I agree this thread is cooked. Either some people just don't get it or I'm dyslexic and need to look at my communication skills. Either way it's not going to get any better or any less frustrating at this stage :lol: I think it was amplified over the past few days because I worked a convention that was full of fan art.. Which is basically what Funko is, a company that makes nothing but fan art toys.

    People can buy whatever they like, enjoy your Funko - leaves more of the truly handmade stuff for the rest of us.

    Now to go back to posting around the read of the board before I end up like this guy kichigai

    Y'know, just because some people don't agree with you doesn't mean that you've been misunderstood. I'd say that it's a safe bet that the majority of the people who have read through this thread haven't bothered to comment, regardless of whether or not they 'get' you. It's not the points that you've been making that bother me, Glenn, it's the seemingly constant restating of them, in primarily the same language as before, but with ever escalating condescension thrown in to frame the repetition. I honestly don't even remember how I originally felt about your post that started this thread because I'm so annoyed by the high-handed defensiveness that you've been throwing down. Much as I'd love to side with you - I think that your genuine enthusiasm for so many projects and your active engagement here are commendable things - but this persisting skip in your record...

    • k'chunk, k'chunk, k'chunk

    ...is just serving to rouse my inner bully.

    For the love of Ferrigno please stop making me want to defend Funko! You're killing my Bixby here, man.

    That's easily remedied . . . just don't search!

    Seeing all the needy toy chasing comments from the same whiny collectors and douchebag chancers just showing up in my feed are bad enough, I can only imagine what you get with #sofubi or #(whatevertoy'shotthisweek)

    I'd pay good money to have Instagram 2.0 and the opportunity to turn 'em off!
