Just got an email from AlterEgo gloating about the Ahsoka pre-orders selling out twice and saying that Hot Toys’ popularity is at an all time high. Okay? That supposed to impress us? Get more sales? Drum up more excitement for their products?

Not me. I have very little interest in anything else they’re offering. I even have extreme tunnel vision when it comes to their Star Wars offerings.

Anyway, are they going to use this newfound revelation of popularity to address the vast and almost endless amount of QC issues they’v had over the years? Ones that still persist to this day?

Why would I want to blow $250 on a high-end 1/6 scale figure, when I can get the same fucking character and design in 1/12 scale for a fraction of the price—at worse, for half the price? And the only thing you have to worry about is some paint issues (which can be fixed) and joint breakage, which is much easier to get replaced, especially early on in the figures release.

It’s idiotic. It’s a similar concept as someone who continues collecting expensive statues, when they live in an earthquake ridden zone.

Don't forget there's still a debate if the sanctions against China could effect ALL imports which means Toys. Hot Toys would lose it's biggest financial supporters and I think say Japan would capitalize on buying Hot Toys and jack the prices up for US 3rd party markets.

They might make an exception for toys—or at least lessen the extent of them? If they don’t, oh well. They’ll find a way to peddle all of this shit to us somehow. They make too much money off of it.
