I know this site allows for the free exchange of ideas but.............QUIT IT RATED X!
ENOUGH with the obsession with this Nonsensical, Out of Place and Trolling! Dolls, underage features, curvaceous design.....
If you don't like to buy Minerva, don't!And get out of the thread!
With apologies to other Floridians out here, would you allow such stereotyping? For those with such a mind set against those collecting figs, they can just KISS MY B*TT!
It's bad enough that prior to the anime explosion and the Bayformers movie, admit it, a lot of our "mainstream" peers looked down on us.....at least until popular culture accepted some of this in the mainstream.
I have a 15 year old nephew who knows and is aware of my main G1 TF collection and sub collection of various anime figs. He knows the difference between an ero fig and a main line General Patronage fig. I own both lines (ero and mainstream figs).
He (the 15 year old) knows the difference between an icky, yucky naked girl and a wowza high tech most excellent action figure along the lines of figma(Maxfactory), ALmecha (Alter), vmf(Yamato)and Gutto Kuro(CMs) line. He knows when to get the rise out of one and when to just enjoy the complexity of a fig. Showing the 15 year old
a pic of Minerva, well he doesn't find her anywhere near erotic at all.......in fact she's kinda skinny according to him.
So If a 15 year old can tell the difference while supposed Floridian adults can't..........then I fear for your future (get your priorities straight for heavens sake!)
I second Blurrz x infinity........let's talk about the merit of the toys and not the distractions!
1.When will she be available?
4.Wished they'd make a scaled transtector body for her
(Ok, I just slipped that in......couldn't resist)
5.Is her armor cast off
(if you are so obsessed with such a feature.)
Btw, she's a bit taller than a Voyager fig. That's their usual size range.
My Transformers purchasing habits, here are my following considerations so as not to DERAIL thread discussions:
1. Not hung up or hate scale. MP, Legend, Voyager....I'll take 'em all.
2. Price is indeed a big factor but if its a need to own one even if I have to eat "Scooby Snacks " for a month then so be it.
3. I tilt towards Tomy products over Hasbro because it's got lots'a bling (Legends Jetfire being the exception)
