MaxToy Co Atelier G-1! Hedorah Exclusive

The Wire

Recommended Posts

So, what makes this 'urban' and the regular bandai Hedorah not?


I mean, yeah, this is a nice figure, and its more detailed than the Bandai one, but they're still made pretty much the same way.


is it the limited nature?, if so, then are all limited edition figures 'urban'?


what makes it urban?


are all vinyl figures URBAN vinyl figures?.


or do they have to showcase a certain level of artistry?, if that's the case, then I'd say the Bandai ones qualify, despite being mass-produced.


or is it a combination of the two?, artistry and limited edition?, if that's the case, then would Bandai's Hedora qualify if it were simply limited to a low production?


and where would Hasbro's Mighty Muggs fall in?


the lines are blurring, it would seem between 'Art Toy' and 'Niche Toy'.


since it would seem they appeal to the same type of people.


Granted, this is a much better sculpted figure, and it's much better painted. I can see the reason for the higher price point. But is it really worth the pricetag that's being asked?


I guess if you're willing to pay the price, it is. And I gotta admit, on a mass-produced toy, you might get the detail in the sculpt, but you'll never get the paintjob that good.
