I don't know why they made video commercials with toys for Youtube. That's some serious pay for 45 seconds of stop motion figures. I'd rather have the pre-order option than putting deposits for bad marketing decision. Pewd's 9 year old army don't buy high end toys. 😒
Those fucking things are beyond irritating. I'd bet they got no real payoff from them.
Have to agree. I don’t pre-order any 1/6 stuff from them anymore because I’m not about to take a 10% hit on something that they will just markup if it’s a hot item anyway. Or that they won’t have any issue selling.

Alterego has free shipping and rewards points. BBTS just needs to stop carrying all the dumb shit that they do. They get all the anime figures (that a lot of people have stopped caring about) and they have some of the stupidest looking toys I’ve ever seen. Something was listed the other day and each one was like $105 a pop. And it all looked terrible.
HT is already pricing themselves out of the market and they offer only the same Disney shit over and over with minor changes. BBTS carries so much shit no one ever buys and it sits on the site for years. The fact the site has been around this long and offers no rewards or payment plans is plain idiotic.

I talked to them some time back and they were thinking about offering some kind of perk, besides the pile of loot. I honestly can’t remember what it was that she mentioned to me. I’m sure they’re working on adding whatever it is, but requiring an NRD on everything is going to make it a moot point.

To be frank, BBTS needs to start trimming the fat of what they order. Stop importing obscure anime shit that no one will buy. At the prices being offered... people will just get them off of AmiAmi and HLJ. Only grab what’s been more mainstream. Tales figures, the Bishoujos, Gundam Gals, Dragon Ball Gals, Gantz, etc. And of course, stuff that’s been on Adult Swim, like Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Gurren Lagann and what not.

Looking at their home page right now, I see a TON of stuff they could axe and make room for something else in the future. And what’s with carrying garbage like those recently listed 1000Toys figures? Who buys that overpriced ratshit?

I was hoping they would hire a sculptor that actually knows what Gal Gadot looks like for the WW84 figures but I guess not. Still that same old garbage sculpt. Hopefully that is just a placeholder for now.

I think their sculptors are so overworked now that the faces all start to bleed together. They really need to use 3D tech and then have sculptors make it even better, since even that isn’t perfect. But nope. Won’t happen. They’ll keep using the same shit methods they’ve always used.

They're like fifty deep with RDJ and still can't make him not look like he's non union Mexican equivalent.

Holy shit! I’m definitely getting that. Gonna have to cancel the Mezco. Now, if they would only make a Hellboy...

Skin tones in the last image look like he has the Kung Flu.

At that price, and it's SH Figarts... Yeah. I'd buy it. I might give it a repaint based on that last image, but if the sculpt is solid it would be worth it.

Yeah, I cancelled the Mezco one. Sorry, it’s just not worth paying $120 for. It’s even worse if you went with BBTS.

It’s an insult to us as consumers to list 1/12 scale figures for anything higher than $100. Its ludicrous to ask for even that much.

Pre-ordered the fuck out of the Keaton Bats when it popped up on BBTS.

Pre-ordered. It looks like I'll find out in Sept. if I'm doctoring the paint job or not.

I think it looks good honestly. I was fine with the Neca figure for the longest time. I hope they make the Christopher Reeve Superman. Also gotta have Nicholson Joker.
