    First off, this is awesome you are doing this!

    With so many awesome toys in the world, it’s hard to see them all. Thanks to the wonder that is Rotocasted, I get to see toys that I wouldn't normally.

    Why would I want this? Well, this is the first time I am seeing this toy. I may be well out of the loop but I don’t know the artist, designer or the manufacture. Yet, I have fallen in love with this toy as is, not caring who the designer is, if they have a name for themselves or how it will reflect who I am as a consumer. I just want to play with it and have it in my collection.

    Saying that, I am now interested in finding more about the artists and manufacture. This is a tight piece and I want to see more from whoever was involved, time to google!

    Picked one of these up recently from Minty ^^ Excellent service on their part and whilst I really love the form (Arkiv produced a cool character here for sure), the quality of the thing is poor i.e. AdFunture, more effort required!

    For 40 euro's its just about passable, but at the original price (double what I paid), I'd be very annoyed if this was what I received! It's not QC issues I am talking about either, its just outright quality on the whole, The vinyl is thin and passes light, the colour application, mainly coloured vinyl with a bit of white paint, lazy production IMO, in hand it reminds me of a dog chew toy.

    I agree Moose. I have three of these, including a D-Lux custom, and they all look fantastic. But you can tell immediately that the material is low quality. I'd like to hear from one of the Arkiv Sumo owners, to see if that figure is the same or if they used better vinyl.

    Yeah we were very displeased aswell with these and currently I have a shitload at an artist for customisation... biggest mistake i made in my Mintyfresh years :(

  • Shankweather angel

    Shankweather

    347 7 819

    Don't get me wrong, I'm still a fan of this figure, and at Minty's price it's well worth it. If this had been made from Japanese vinyl it would have retailed for $150 or more. The iffy vinyl kept it affordable.

    Minty, who is the artist?

  • Mintyfresh angel

    Mintyfresh

    353 606 632

    Arkiv Vilmansa is the artist, and yes agree on the form and figure self is still awesome. Quality was just an issue and lesson was learned ;)

  • Shankweather angel

    No I meant who is doing the customization.
