Taki Corp

Does anyone else despise Taki Corperation?

All the figures I have seen made by them, either in person, in pictures or in reviews make me mad. They cost just as much as any other expensive PVC figure but the quality is just not there. Their figures seem to be shiny, their cast off looks chunky making most of the figures look akward & strange and overall I find their figures just don't look good. I have heard a lot of complaints about them leaning also depending on the figure.

Some examples of how they don't really look right with cruddy look cast off:

Maybe it's just me but I really don't think they should be charging what they are for these figures... Maybe I am just spoiled by Alter, GSC, Max Factory and even Kotobukiya now a days.

Can't remember where I saw one, but I recall making similar comments about Taki products.

Also, as depressing as it is, it's true that Kotobukiya isn't the bottom of the heap.
Plastic... cool, sterile, and oh so pretty!

Did someone mention Taki & leaners. :evil: :evil:
Here is a link to a shot of my Taki Tenko Kuugen

Lets just say that Kuu will be my one & ONLY Taki figure.
Casting off her robes just lets her lean more as the robes stop her leaning too far, otherwise she kisses the ground. :roll: :evil:

I have no idea what material Taki uses for their figures but their finishes are very "tacky" :)
All, not not, most of their figures they produce looks like Yamato's typical quality control's rep and I have to say, I've seen a lot of Taki Corporation figures on sale and never been tempted to buy one.

Gotta say, I haven't been into figures long enough but Kotobukiya is or was definitely bottom of the barrel. Pre 2008, they've been standard stuff, not bad or not great. Post 2008, they've definitely upped their reputation at both price point and finish, setting up a factory in America also helped(or was that Kaiyodo...?)
