one jled too many

Post by t0fu » Wed Apr 02, 2008 3:19 pm

ok as someone that isn't a collector of ledbetter stuff i'm just wondering, does anyone else feel as though he is kinda flooding the scene with stuff. i mean every other week there is another smash color, hammerhead, vivisect, etc. in cases like this there is usually a backlash and i'm wondering, is this the feeling others are having.

he puts out just as many items as kozik... and a good way to nto get caught up in all of that is to just collect what you like, and not everything an artist does. I like jled's stuff... but i pick and choose what to buy

I dont think Jled decides when they are released either. KR and Toy2r just happened to release these around the same time so it seems like overkill

i use to really like his stuff, at this point i just think it is getting played out. I love a lot of his stuff, just seems like he should take a break for a while and have an epic come back.

after seeing the new ice blue edition smash i was about to make a topic about the amount of jled's stuff but i guess you beat me to it
in any case yeah, initially i thought that smash was a great toy but now i'm kinda turned off from all the different editions and what not

I wish that I would get turned off by the volume of JLED stuff coming out. That would save me a lot of money. As it is, I'm going to be trying my damnedest to get all of the colourways of Smash.

i feel the same thing happened with kaws and a lot of OFake releases but it just drove up prices on his older iller stuff......but i think it's in jled's best interest to chill a lil..

kaws is taking a break right now and everybody is itching to see what he's going to release next. jled should do the same.

I do think the KFGU toys and qees were a mistake and flooded the market, but toys like ringo and smash are awesome enough that I can ignore the duds. Multiple colorways don't bother me since I only buy one anyway and I like having the choices.

Same here! Just pick the one that looks the best and then go for it..As long as it's not too limited or only released in the shop it's all good.

I don't mind JLed putting out so many because I'll only buy what I like..I got off the bandwagon of 'needing to complete everything.'

Don't know a thing (or care) about qee's, but love the KFGU toys, real quality stuff. The series just isn't hyped that much for some reason so the prices and obtainability are great. How many total Gamerita's are there? 1200 or so? Still not that money with all those colorways. How many smash total lol? I don't even want the brown or pink 0 interest, think the blue is ok, the yellow is very cool(why is the rare one always the coolest, should be 1500 yellow, 200 pink(much like the Lava). Anyway it seems there is something for everyone so he is doing something right. Clearly Joe is the man right now and should take full advantage of it, with all the $ people have made of Bunnys Cats Bummers and Ringos I think Joe deserves a a nice big piece of pie.

That's why there are pre-orders for all these Smash's. By the time they release every colorway you're gonna by annoyed that youpicked up the first available version instead of waiting and getting the one you liked. There are 5 versions out already and they say MORE! It's too much. But I wonder if J-Led has any control over how many colorways are produced. It'd be interesting to hear if he even designed the colorways, or perhaps just a few and the rest were extrapolated ?

that a great idea, but probably far from reality. if you look at it, jled probably gets paid a flat amount for the designs and stuff turned out which is probably a good chunk but no where near as much the companies are probably going to rake in for the final produced sale. and then you have the flippers, who get a wholesale accounts, probably spend a couple hundred to secure a bunch and then set them loose on fleebay to double and in some cases triple the retail value. if jled was to get paid half of what flippers make off his work, he'd be rolling in gold bummers.

The only reason I say he might not have control of the colors is because when artists submit designs to the company...say for Jleds S4 Dunny, Kidrobot got to pick which design they wanted to produce out of a few designs. They can even change things about the original design. So for Smash, I'm wondering if he did the original design for the sculpt and perhaps an original color and Toy2R just went off on it.
