I perfectly agree with that during our present economic times. But then again, make it a single pack to make it affordable, instead of not so affordable as an identical double pack.I can see your point but I can also understand why the differences are more minimal, basically it keeps the costs down. I'm happy it's a 2 pack but that's because I'd like more than 1, not sure how they decide what should be a single figure & what shouldn't but I remember Kotobukiya promoting their earlier 1:10 scale 2 pack figure sets as army builders so maybe that's why they are keeping to the double figure sets.
Totally!Koto NEEDS to make environment bases for ALL 1/10th figures!! Maybe even with a backdrop!
The second hand market should pick up. They would make a killing!
They are just what we get given so I don't mind them either really but quite often to conserve space I leave the bland bases in the boxes as there's nothing to add to the display by using them..., if they were more interesting though, then I'd feel I want to use them as they'd compliment the figures more (aside from the magnets of course which add stability that is, if needed).In a business cost perspective, I can see how mass producing the generic black stands would be beneficial. I don't mind them really.
Or just make the current black bases double sided and put what you're talking about on the other side.I agree a few generic "scene setter" bases would be nice. Something that can be mass produced & still work for a wide range of figures.
• Death Star / spaceship hallway tiles (glossy black)
• Snowy base (nothing textured or anything that has a sculpt aka a wavey base which could inhibit the integrity of the magnetic hold to the feet)
• Sand base (recolor of snow base to help reduce production costs)
• Carbon freeze chamber (as seen with display models @ shows)
The bases can be sold individually while the generic black bases could still come with the statues. The above stated bases, I feel, would compliment a wide range of figures & whereas they are being sold separately, would help increase revenue by themselves rather than pack them with a specific statue.
