Anyone remember this figure? (hehe)
film - VTS Toys 1/6 Wasteland Ranger - Furiosa (Do Venders Have an Out?; UPDATED: 5/18/18) 16054510

For those, like me, that have been waiting on this figure, there is possibly some good news.
Kit Chen (onesixthkit) posted this on his FB page earlier this morning. I found it over at the Freaks.

Hopefully this really is happening.

This is good news. Now I wish I preordered it from him instead of from where I did, as I bet that will take longer still.
Thanks for passing it on.

Thanks Stryker for sharing these updates! I want this to come in so badly. I really wish it came with 2 heads. I may try to scoop up a 2nd one loose if they're not too expensive to do up the really iconic black makeup.

I'm not panicking, although it certainly does not look as good (and grimey) as the prototype. That might be easily fixable on the face (not that someone should have to do it themselves when paying such prices), but harder on the body, depending on the material. There is still plenty here that they got right.

I'm not panicking either.

I'm just going to brush my hair, adjust my make-up, adjust the lingerie ensemble I'm wearing, and patiently wait like the 1:6 diva I am.

same here, I'm not disappointed by those first pics, it needs some adjustments but she looks good and definitely has some facial features from charlize to be "recognizable"

ReverendSpooky

ReverendSpooky
I'm reserving all judgement until I have the figure in hand. I thought the Wasteland Ranger looked significantly better when I got him in than in any pics I had seen. And Stryker's right about these shots being way overlit. And in those type of photos, those more subtle details, like weathering, are the 1st casualties. And if I'm wrong, I've got my weathering powders ready.

It doesn't look brilliant, but I guess the face can be fixed. Hardly surprising. The Last one I got from VTS...that chainsaw lollipop girl was pretty poor too. I had trouble selling that one on.

As do I. About the only thing wrong with that one is the paint on the hair (like they used metallic gold or something). As far as this, I’m still looking forward to it.

Oh, they’re talking about a lot of things. Too short, doesn’t look like her, pin-head, major fail, it’s not like the proto. Blah blah blah. Happens every release.

I'd love to get an extra head to do that look with. I'm genuinely surprised they didn't offer a second head, or go that route, since that look is so iconic.

She does look a bit skinny to me, Charlize has bigger hips and a bit more definition in the legs. I would imagine someone will do a better body and head at some point.

CHEERS!

Someone suggested they switch the body to a Phicen or a Jiaou Doll. I'd like to see how someone pulls that off with that arm. My guess is it'll end up being an useable disaster (we're not all Shovelchop81).

Oh I meant that even if one doesn't like the current paintjob (which does look better in the last set of photos posted), if you wanted to modify it (like ReverendSpooky is thinking) by doing the machine oil smudge, you would be changing (and perhaps improving) the appearance anyway.

More in-hand pics; i don't think it looks all that bad. It's not perfect, but for a bootleg product a $100 less than an HT, I'm pretty satisfied.

Hated it soon as I opened it. Insipid expression headsculpt, horrible sculpted hair, and that older sculpt phicen body with the odd sticky out boobs. Outfit was passable and I guess, if you'd played to game to any length, the accesories would have meant something. In the end, I managed to part most of the bits out. Traded the body for otaku parts Smile

Least favourite figure of the year.

Closer inspection reveals this to look ok. I guess the head paint could be tweaked, but nothing serious. Might even be nice.

More in-hand photos courtesy of Eamon over at the Freaks. Yikes! That tiny body is WAY under-scaled for Charlize (who's about half a foot taller than "Max" in real life).

This is an email I received today from Steve at Timewalker:

"Greetings,

Time is short, so the first thing we need to impress upon you is that you must reply to this email.  

As you are most likely aware, we caution our customers to be very careful about the preorders they place.   We base our factory orders on the preorders we receive from our customers.   Once we place a factory order, we cannot adjust our factory order up or down.  This is why preorder cancellations, especially last minute cancellations, can be so problematic.  

However, there are rare exceptions where we must preemptively reach out to you to find out if you still wish to go through with a preorder, because we've learned about a design, engineering, or quality control issue that radically deviates from the prototype images on which sales were originally made.  Unfortunately, this is the case with the long waited VTS Furiosa.

Please observe the picture below:

film - VTS Toys 1/6 Wasteland Ranger - Furiosa (Do Venders Have an Out?; UPDATED: 5/18/18) 1226

This is a picture of the final product of Furisoa.  We believe this a radical departure from the images we were originally given to sell this product.   It is clear to us that a shorter, almost child-like, body has replaced the prototype body, and, though it is difficult to see in this image, other pictures show major differences in the head sculpt.  

The differences between the prototype and the final product are so striking that we can only conclude that sales made during the preorder period must either be re-confirmed or cancelled.

We have spoken to both distributors handling this product.  In each case, their containers ship next week.   We have been given a rare opportunity to adjust our factory order, based on the new information.  By the way, both distributors report that VTS has no intention altering this product for release later.   Production is complete. This is the way your figure will look.  

So, without further adieu, we need you to immediately reply to the following question:

Do you still wish to keep your order?   YES or NO.

If yes, we will bring product in for you.  Please note, this is your only opportunity to cancel.

If no, we will cancel your preorder obligation.  By Tuesday, silence will be treated as a cancellation, but we would prefer to hear from you.  We are simply not bringing in product that we can't sell.  


Please reply right way.  Again, we don't have much time to get back to our distributors.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,

Steven Allen
Timewalker Enterprises, Inc."


I just hope he doesn't have to still order by the case in the event there's someone who says "Sure. Keep my PO." I canceled mine, but if he ends up with stock anyway, I'll probably end up getting it. I don't like to screw the retailers over once I place a PO (I've brought this issue up in a thread I created over at the Old Site a few years ago).

Can't say fairer than that. Good of Timewalker to offer to do that.

Oh wow. I've never seen a letter like that from a seller! Huge respect to Timewalker for doing that.

I'm still good to go on mine. I really do think the figure looks good otherwise, but damn, what IS with the height? You would think VTS would need to go through a lot of extra effort tooling the smaller body instead of just using a pre-existing one. If it really bugs me, I'll see about swapping out to a taller body. I was originally considering a custom Furiosa anyway, so this would still put me WAY ahead of starting from scratch.

DamToy didn't quite threezero the bed -- The detail of the fig still looks great -- but the height of that figure is crazy. It really does look like a child or teenager. Even a body swap is questionable as you'll need new custom chaps and the head will then look out of scale.

I imagine there's at least one customizer who works for profit out there whose eyes just lit up with dollar signs.

I wouldn't be entirely surprised if there is another third party Furiosa out there. I'm sure I saw a head on FB. Just keep your eyes peeled in case one emerges. If one does, the VTS might provide spares.

Well, there is THIS and I own one, but it's not nearly as nice in hand, and even if it were, it would still be fairly far from perfect. Besides, with Furiosa, you really need not only the head and outfit, but also that mechanical arm device.
