As the title says, what are some choices in the manufacturing or design process, such as choice in material, paint, etc., that turn an exciting announcement into a no-go for you?

Personally, I absolutely cannot stand the look of the super-glossy material that is sometimes used in hair, like ITEM #604392 for example. It just looks slimy or like it was coated with vegetable oil.

I use ITEM #604392 as my example because I was so excited when she was first announced only to immediately remove her from my wishlist when her painted prototype was revealed.

Just something I've been curious about!

Talal5 kuukautta sitten#76209164can you explain the different between pvc and pvc L please
PVC-L = PVC-like = PMMA - more brittle than regular PVC (but still better than resin), and has a decent likelihood of breaking in transit

SkaylerOtakuCat5 kuukautta sitten#76209054When the figure is absolutely stuning but the base is prize figure quality with no design, just a black/white/clear disk. Come on, I'm not paying $200 to look at that
Example: ITEM #899435 (And basicly all Freeing and Union Creative scales)


oh that bothers me too! nothing dealbreaking for me but it's always disappointing, at least put some thought into it since it's necessary to display the figure!

Ugly support poles. Just... ugly support poles. There are so few reasons to have them and so many alternatives. (See BLOG #44299)

shiny hair has already been mentioned, but i haven't seen its (imo worse) greasy counterpart make an appearance yet... shiny skin.

nothing screams cheap-looking to me like glossy, plasticky skin on a figure. as a bonus, that material almost never has any shading so it manages to be both flat and shiny at the same time which is... yeah, not flattering.

and of course, obligatory shout-out to the already mentioned gravity-defying balloon boobs, impossible fabric folds and really derpy faces too.

all this being said, i actually love transparent sections in hair, it's one of my favorite things commonly found on miku figures >_>

I find that having these kinds of constraints helps me keep my collection small. I completely agree -- I don't really like a super shiny finish to my figures. I like it more matte. It's also super disappointing when you like a figure's paint mock up and then when they put out another prototype it's completely different. You have the idea of what you wanted in your head, and even if it looks good, its not what you wanted.

I also don't like it when figures have fabric involved with them (fishnet stockings). I'd rather they be sculpted on because I feel like it's more subject to wear and tear over time.

And then of course, just like sculptural design choices. Sometimes proportions of a character are way off (either very voluptuous or a little sickly looking), sometimes clothing (why are they wearing that like that lol?!).
