Who is a Spin Master hater?

on Sunday, June, 17, 2012 10:11 PM
I know you are out there. Identify yourself programs.

I want to say I think Spin Master did a good job. It wasn't great; it could have been better. But I like most of what was made. I am still wondering how Quorra and Clu never got 2nd heads, and why we never got a figure for Jem, 8" versions of some characters, or the 2 figures that were shown in the beginning of the actual movie.

But, overall, I like the toys they made. I think it's disappointing to see them still on clearance at various locations

Yo. Shoddy quality, near-nonexistent articulation, needlessly bulky electronics, discs that don't even fit in their hands, and a price too high compared to similar figures of the same size. No wonder stores were still sitting on almost full stock a year later.

I don't open them. Are you saying they cannot hold the discs?

The most disappointing figure for me is the deluxe Sam Flynn. That just doesn't look like him

The best figure is Rinzler. He looks good and comes with an armory of accessories that you can distribute to other guys.

Well I bought a Reco.. and Kevin Flynn Light Cycle...
and a couple Identity Discs..

I like the Discs..
I just feel they need to stay lit up the whole time..
but that was fixed with people who know how to mod them..

Since he doesn't say much of anything... who knows what's going on in his head? (Let's face it: the two probably have about the same brain power, eh?) If Barbie was even remotely goth, poor Ken wouldn't stand a chance.

I think it was discussed that Quorra and possibly CLU were to have their un-helmeted heads in the second series of figures that were never made.

I will be honest I didn't buy any when they first came out. When the toys hit clearance at Target I did get a Kevin Flynn Encom 786 cause I thought it would make a great display piece. Well, that ended up causing me to continually buy all the toys. haha. I have most except both Lightjets, the majority of the diecasts and Castor(of course).
As for the quality...Im kinda torn. The level of detail on the small figures is pretty darn good and when you get to the larger figs we even get the "hex print" detail on the costumes, which is my favorite detail.(Aside from the metal disc you get with the 12-inch Figs)
I only have one small fig open, Sam Flynn. He holds his disc just fine and I can put him in a variety of poses that hold pretty well. Now, he did come apart once when I tried to pull him out of the Light Runner (split him in half as I pulled), but other than that has been good. I like the light up feature but I sometimes think it should have been just used on the larger figures and not the 3 3/4.

i really did like all of the figures that they created. the only thing i had a problem with was the lack of variety the figures had, because they only included a few characters. Rinzler and CLU are my favorite 8" figures that were created, but i was kind of hoping for an 8" Kevin Flynn, Tron without helmet and white circuitry , and Quorra. the discs that they created also had a good sculpt, but unfortunately lacked good lighting. good thing, i am actually modding them all three today (actually I'm modding the Sam Flynn disc for my TRON: uprising beck costume)

Very cool, I hope that you post up some progress pics of the costume as it comes together.

Do you know if the core figures can fit in Kevin Flynn's light cycle? I am trying to fit a Sam Flynn I just bought in there. He isn't fitting, unless, perhaps, he steers with his feet.

I just picked up some yellow 3 3/4 inch clu's at a kmart. I didn't realize they weren't all orange. I'm very happy right now

You got the feet in? I couldn't get the head! Star Wars figures fit nice since they are shorter, you would be surprised how nice a white Stormtrooper looks with a white light cycle.
I like the orange Clu better since to me he looks more orange in the film, but the yellow Clu is a bit more rare so good find!

Do I hate Spinmaster? Hate is a strong thing. I don't hate anyone, I hate what they do. So yeah I hate the marketing. The figures and vechicals are nice but there should have been more of the characters and some helmetless ones. And of course more Castors, since I have one and know how nice they are I would have it where everyone could own one!

I guess. Once you close the hatch, it's tough to tell what is going on in there.

Yeah, I got a pair of them. Had no idea until I got home. I get irritated by the orange because it doesn't match his picture. I looked, and was like, wth? I still have a problem with deluxe orange

I think they gave good variety. A jack of all trades, albeit a master of none. I really wish they had made Clu's tank from the first movie.

yknow, now that im thinking, what if NECA made TRON figures? i know they did the 2.0 figures, and they are really nice, so why wouldnt they make figures for the original, legacy, and possibly uprising? the quality would be superb!

I still see 2.0 figures at Five Below, but they only have the woman. Would have bought them if they had all 4 guys (even though I'm not a huge fan of the game).

Oh you mean the deluxe Clu. In the 4 in. size orange looks better but yellow looks better on the larger deluxe one. Its too dark of an orange they use.
