Plugged the Figure Realm in my interview, you all deserve it

Postby Jin Saotome » Wed Apr 11, 2012 11:07 am

Just thought I'd let you know I was interviewed by the Toy Box and plugged the site as the place to go to host your custom work. Hope it brings some new people in. CC, your site has gotten to be quite the amazing resource.

Very nice, Jin. :)
I, for one, thank you.
The Realm has been the best customizing site I've been too. We have an awesome community here.
Take care, brother. :D

That's cool that you gave Figure Realm a shoutout in your interview; I'm sure Captain Coder will appreciate it!

JIN SAOTOME: Well let's start at the root of it first, retail bought action figures. I'd have every toy company cancel their contracts overseas and have them start making toys in the USA. The bulk of all delays, logistical problems, and headaches of making action figures is that it's all done in China. You don't have a hands-on look at your product until it's already spent 2 months floating across the ocean on a giant barge. Imagine if you could have design input in hours. Make running changes, communicate efficiently, and have product shipped out the month you create it. I realize that's all but a pipe dream now but it would be so much easier to customize figures if we could have the companies create amazing figures in the first place, made in the USA where we they could have direct control. Did you know there are zero current action figure lines made in the USA? From GI Joe to DC, it's all made in China.



I COULDN"T AGREE MORE!!! The entire article is a nice little read, but this was my favorite part. =D> "Check it out"

I think toy companies only make them in china because it's so much cheaper to produce. It makes sence from a financial point of view, but if that wasn't part of it, we would be getting some much better figures being produced. One day.....
