So, then, isn't redecoing or retooling an existing toy also "fixing" someone else's art?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 10:07 PM)

A toy is not on the same level as a piece of drawn art, true, but it is 100% an entertainment product.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 05:05 PM)

A toy is an object of utility, Comparing that to a piece of drawn art is grossly ignoring the difference between the two. Also, you didn't answer my questions. Try again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:25 PM)

Part of the difference is that those covers are primarily one person's art. Sure, you probably have an inker and a colorist, but the lines and composition are one person. A toy however is a team design at pretty much all levels.

@  Cyoti : (16 May 2021 - 03:52 PM)

toymaking is a collaborative process, you have to make compromises and factories are going to get things wrong

Earthrise had a few holes, Runamuck's legs YIKES!

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 03:37 PM)

I doubt that say, the designer for Kingdom Cheetor was happy about every bit of unpainted plastic on it.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:28 PM)

J Scott Campbell recently had his Spiderman cover "fixed" by someone online. A few weeks ago, someone on twitter "fixed" someone's Sonic the Hedgehog fan art where Sonic, Tails and Knuckles were drawn as humans. Both times and other times, the "fixer" gets called out and criticised as you shouldn't go around "fixing" someone else's art because its rude and disrespectful to the original artist. And I was thinking isn't "fixed your s*** for ya" exactly what toy customisers do?

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

Have you ever changed your car in any way whatsoever compared to the factory configuration, or are you leaving the designer's art unchanged in that case as well?

@  CORVUS : (16 May 2021 - 02:28 PM)

It's best not to ponder it too hard.

@  Nevermore : (16 May 2021 - 04:16 AM)

Bass X0, I really wonder sometimes how you come up with these random tangents apropos of nothing.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 May 2021 - 04:11 AM)

It's collaborative art.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 May 2021 - 04:07 AM)

Toys are subject to budget constraints, so its not like customizing would ruin the designer's vision or whatever.

@  Bass X0 : (16 May 2021 - 03:38 AM)

Isn't customising a toy just "fixing other people's art"?

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

Put the Bandai efforts in the hands of a child for a couple of hours and if they still look like that afterwards, then I'll admire them.

 

I always wondered what it would look like if the Robotech movie ever happened and Hasbro got the toy license and engineered actual Valkyrie toys rather than transformable art. I guess we're about to get a taste.

So is Maverick going to get a mini-series like Ectro-Tron did?

 

Are those two gonna meet up? Will "Top Gun" be retconned into the IDW Ghostbusters contuinty?

 

It's so upsetting that *I'M* the one asking the important questions.

Only thing better would be if they also made the F-5 Tigers that they used for the enemy MiGs (IRL they use them as Aggressors in training) and Jester's A-5 Skyhawk. 

 

As for repaints, Tiger Stripes (G.I Joe Tiger force) or just go full Hooligan. Or that Cobra Scythe deco they gave the 30th Skystriker.

They didn't even make this on purpose. One of the designers just sat down to watch Top Gun and found it in his hands afterward.

Anyway, Top Gun might not have been high on anyone's "crossovers wanted" list (though I have a T-shirt that proves it isn't entirely unconsidered) but it's certainly a well-remembered property strongly associated with a specific vehicle. Nice to see that crossover toy logo really was a harbinger of things to come.


Is the foundation of your interest in Top Gun mostly because of the use of Maverick in Megaman X?
Woooo!

I've never seen Top Gun, but from what I can tell it's about a closted bisexual man who joins the air force. He has a great time playing homoerotic volleyball and having towel flicking fights in the showers. But then the man he loves is killed in action, and he realizes the true nature of the US military. He then gets sad, deserts and starts riding his motorcycle through the desert.

 

Or at least that's what I think happens based on Archer, short recreation of the film.


I sure wish I hadn't misspelt my username.....
