I honestly think it looks worse with the ankle extenders added, cause now it looks like she's some kind of mutant with really long skinny legs. I didn't say anything over there, as most of those people are too clicky and very sensitive.
GubernatorFan wrote:Thank you for the extra photos, Asta. I was very divided on this one, and after plenty of mental flip-flopping, decided to cancel my pre-order. I don't know if it was the right decision or whether I will end up regretting it. It would be exceedingly difficult to make a good custom Furiosa without this set, but as is being brought up time and again, it is just designed at too small a scale.
DeltaForceChung wrote:My question is how come those who knew ahead of time of the height issue still purchased it and still complaining almost non-stop about it?
It's mind boggling. I admit I too have posted much vitriol in the past about certain failures and let down such as how PHICEN screwed up Bettie Page, but over the time I let it go like Elsa from Disney's Frozen. I comprehend and understand the anger and disappointment by many. I really do, but again this is akin to non-stop beating a dead horse.
Stryker2011 wrote:And like a lot of people, I assumed, since he turned out so good, that she would too. And after a long delay, we get this. Now, I have no intention of getting rid of Max, because it really is a cool figure, but it is immensely disappointing how badly Furiosa turned out, and I’m bummed I don’t get to add her to the collection.
blackpool wrote:As for some strong criticism, the very ugly part of both these figures are the molded boots, max has some laced brown shoes, nothing to do with his biker boots in the movie, and furiosa has some tactical grey boots, just as ugly and totally inacurate, plus they are very limitating for the posing.
Asta wrote:Looking again at Furiosa's boots, it looks like three different pairs.
The first one has the toe strap but no side strap.
The second has the side strap, but no toestrap.
The third has both.

What it really boils down to is, if you wouldn't make the comment to someone's face, why would you do so on-line? I actually had someone who lives just down the street from me put up a post through a neighborhood Spacebook page calling me out on a financial decision a group I was in made for our neighborhood. He talked some pretty serious trash and mentioned a bonfire in my front yard. I walked down to his house and, when his wife finally got him to the door (chickensh!t), politely reminded him that he probably ought not to talk garbage he's not prepared to dispose of...so to speak.
Then, he gets on-line and tried to walk it back. Truth be known, I didn't really care then and still don't. We did the right thing.
But the point is, and this really scares me, that we've bred a generation of on-line lions that are real-life candy asses.

Does it move well? What's the outer material like in comparison? Are you worried at all about the armature breaking inside?

Asta wrote:It was a valid point, Stryker. Essentially VTS' Furiosa isn't fit for purpose.
Ironically though, I consider her to be one of their best figures.
So I re-purposed her as non-Furiosa or teen Furiosa.
YOU KNOW . . .
I see the humor in that statement, but at the same time it's quite appropriate and logical.
MAX MAX: Furiosa . . . The Early Years
Stryker2011 wrote:That's a pretty good idea, really. Place her alone or with other post-apocalyptic figures, not related to Max, and it would probably look pretty cool.

So what started as a $170 bootleg figure turns into a near $300 “acceptable” figure...
