Joy Toy makes some pretty good quality action figures

Looking at the figures they have done previously, I think they could make some great Tau Battlesuit figures.

Is there stuff even available here in the UK? From what I've seen they tend to go for about £80 on ebay and such, significantly more than they 'should' cost.

You'll probably need to preorder via a uk specialist who'll import a batch at retail prices

eg https://www.indemandtoys.co.uk/

(they've got some joytoy stuff listed so will probably look to get these especially if people ask about them so they know there will be interest)

Yup, they confirmed they’ll be carrying joytoys (oooer!) earlier this week if memory serves.

I’m not really into action figures, so I’ve never heard of Joy Toy. One quick Google later, I’m pleasantly surprised by how good their stuff looks. This could be very interesting.

Sigh, another dumb brick hErOiC bolter. These things are supposed to be 20 mm caliber, not 200, you'd think if half of GW artists can do them justice at least ONE figure would too...

Ew, Marines.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

If this is the scale I'm thinking, maybe we'll be more likely to see the other races - I'd certainly buy up all the Eldar aspects (and a Tau crisis suit, TBH).

To caveat off of this thread, The McFarlane figures are excellent, but the paintjobs need to be gone over with washes, details, and some GW metals...

New ones out- Sister of Battle, a Hellblaster, and the unpainted of each.

Flayed One is for Preorder...

These guys are like 8 or 9 inches tall, look pretty crisp. A Must have for us getting our Sister back out of the dust and reigniting the forge world....

I can't wait for the Adeptus Mechanicus ranger/ or tech priest....

Those look gorgeous (but wish they weren't ultras).

I'm torn. These would be welcome additions beside my joes & stormtroopers, but they're going to be over $35 each. Maybe I can live with just one?

The "why" continues to elude me.

I mean, I get the why. Because every other IP since Star Wars prosper on merchandise and collateral. Everyone knows that GW only shoot to survive long term is becoming a brand company.

Did GW realize that glorified merchandise and toys is already their main business?

I can't condone a place where abusers and abused are threated the same: it's destined to doom, so there is no reason to participate in it.

???

Building and painting models and playing games with increasingly slipshod rules is a very niche thing.

Buying an action figure to put on your shelf is easy. In they pyramid of GW fans, the multitude who buy a book, a comic, video game or a toy, far outnumber the ones building a fully painted Ultramarines Demicompany.

For years GW didn't really license out their IP much at all, outside of the occasional video game and such, what is the problem with other companies making stuff with it? Popular brands get all sorts of different merchandise, I don't see why this should be any different.

O see that you don't get it.

Such model should come with their own skirmish rules. That's GW business.

Anyone care to take a guess if that’s one base model with lots of bits?

GW has done plenty of non-miniature stuff and have been releasing various merchandise/collectables for years, the only difference is they now license the IP to other companies to do so as well.

That's exactly what it is because that's how toylines work for the most part. If you check out JoyToy's current line, it's basically all retools and repaints with different accessories for the first couple release waves. Hell, Hasbro used the same Classics Starscream mold for 15+ years and eventually had to retire them due to detail degradation on the masters.

The return of Inquisitor!

(the game where a Space Marine would do more damage throwing the krak grenade at something instead of doing something silly like pulling out the pin first)
