What's your favorite toy company?!

Postby Top-notch comix » Wed Apr 07, 2010 9:14 pm

ex.
Toybiz
Mattel
Hasbro
Hot Toys
Diamond Select
DC Direct (that's a toy company... right?)
NECA
Kenner
Shocker Toys
McFarlane Toys
ect.

Personaly, I'm startin to like Diamond Select... I've been collecting Ghostbusters minimates, and I LOVE their BttF Delorians... The Stay-Puft bank was epic also...

Toybiz is a CLOSE second... mainly 'cause of Marvel Legends...


What do you guys think?

I think I like Diamond select quality wise. They have made some great Star Trej figures. Mattle would get the nod but they DC line is hard to find a overpriced. At one time I was a hasbro enthusiast but quality and price issues have soured me of late.

NECA for the win!!!!!

I mostly collect t.v and movie figures so NECA is number 1 for me. I also enjoy their awesome sculpt and their poa is starting to improve.

Has anybosy seen that T2 Arnold sculpt? It's dare I say perfect? It has an amazing likness to Arnold.

I picked up some gremlins a few months ago and they were great too!! Plus the boxset came with 17 accessories!!! Now that's attention to detail!

I used to love Macfarlane too but they pretty much got out of the movie toy benuess a few years ago. However their Robocop is still one of my favorite toy of all time!!!

All I have to say is to NECA is bring cult classics back with new charaters and inproved poa!!!!!!! :D

I would say its NECA for me, as they are the producers of over 50% of my collection. Some others are Mcfarlane and Mezco.

in order

Toybiz
Matty b/c of DCU classics

Hasbro - 6 inch only
revoltech - wish they were 6 inches not 5.
Plan b toys

And what ever company made those Shi figures.

And if McFarlane Military had Toybiz articulation that would be freakin awesome. I have some resaurus special forces that will be combined w/ red skull and ironman... it aint looking too good just yet... :)
