Re: Kidrobot X : 10 Years of Art + Design - Official Gold/Si

It's so refreshing how effortless and pleasant this purchase was. I REALLY hope this starts some kind of trend with open runs on at least some 8" Dunnys. Or at least larger runs.

Otherwise, why should KidRobot fans only be able to enjoy KidRobot products once every ten years? :/

Re: Ironclad Decimator Dunny

These kinds of threads are always hilarious and tragic. Everyone always is quick to yell at and rant about flippers, but consider two things. First, There wouldn't be any flippers if there weren't people that were willing to pay the exorbitant prices that flippers typically charge. There is a demand...

Re: Fatcap S3

And of course, the ratios aren't ever BETTER than listed. Out of the 20 or so Kidrobot series that I've bought cases for, I don't think there was ever a single time that I had less doubles than I expected. Sigh.

Re: Fatcap S3

Christ. So doing some real rough math, in a case of 20, you can be expected to get 6 or 7 duplicates, according to the ratios. I'm pretty sure the last 4 or so cases I've gotten of Kidrobot series, the actual ratios were slightly worse. So let's say 8 duplicates out of 20, for 45% duplicates. With ...

Re: Mads Bent world beats

Huh. I'm really surprised they kept the lame pseudo-colorway aspect of Bentworld Vandals. I got a case of those, and I liked them, but I felt a bit ripped off by the halfway-colorways. And now it's risen to $10 per BB. Huh. Seriously, please don't read this as rude but what is a pseudo-colorway? Ar...

Re: Dunny Azteca II - POLL!!

What really depresses me about all this is just how fantastic the first Azteca series was. There wasn't a single series I was looking forward to more than some kind of continuation of the Azteca designs. So to me, Azteca Series 2 represents not only a shocking rise in price, but a shocking decline i...

Like others have said, the quality and production on these is disappointing. The size and weight of them are underwhelming, even compared to Dunnys, which feel heavy and solid compared to these. They feel cheap and light. When I checked them out at Robotlove and held one in my hand, I said that it f...

If KR was to go bankrupt and wanted to sell their stuff, the LAST thing they'd do is to jack the price up. I'm not buying any blind-boxes, just open for me this time around, 7.95 I could handle, but almost 9 dollars!! I'll pass... Almost $9? Hell, it's almost $10 with tax. Yeah, I thought buying bl...

Wow. Just about every single one of these is amazing. I understand about the whole squeezing this into their schedule and doing it for free, but still, all those other maybe-not-so-famous artists really made Baseman and JLED look like crap.
