I know only one thing absolutley- If F4F is looking for immediate sales at these shows they would do much better at smaller venues with anime/game specific crowds. The big cons are probably better like DGK said for exposure and its going to take a while before you start seeing results by building up a base at that specific venue who keep coming back to see you. My own family business does art shows, craft shows and festivals all over the midwest. You can make a good living at these smaller convention centers with only a 10,000 person turnout and youre able to keep costs down. Last year we were invited to a State Fair where there was supposed to be 1 million in attendance. We knew it wasnt our crowd but we know we do well with good traffic. It was a complete wash- barely covered expenses. It was a massive complex with several buildings, and our own building was about the length of 4 football fields. Nobody could find us, and the ones that did werent there for what we were selling.

Basically it sounds like thats how nycc went for them as well. I think Alex said they sold 2 Mugens. Thats pretty terrible. Im not sure what cons they have planned but its definitely going to be better than that.

If they hit the next nycc with a better spot and a 1:4 Link... that would be interesting.

Nice, Iím sure they will and hopefully they continue with the line but I canít imagine Jin outselling Mugen. You canít have one without the other, but you never know. Maybe if they offer a combo pack to include Mugen and Jin it may draw more people in but I know variants are usually frowned upon.

Comes down to complexity and sculpt, how motion is conveyed straight from the anime screen.

With all the impressive stuff out there, this didnít really stand a chance without a fan base to follow it. Punk samurai genre is not exactly mainstream and thereís stylization of Japanese characters that are not fully captured by F4F.

Just comparing this with Oniriís death note, the 2 look like different animals altogether. One has clean lines and a clean sculpt while the other is highly detailed with a lot going on in terms of shading. If they really want to capture the anime market, they are going to have to take a leaf out of tsumeís book and not make simple looking statues.

I know a lot of ppl are excited about cowboy bepop, but those statues look really drab. I donít feel any character from them.

Completely disagree. I hate what Tsume are doing by pumping details in where they shouldn't be, texturing ---- and making it realistic, it's not how anime stuff should look for me.

This for me is perfect, it's a high quality 1/4 statue that looks like it's been taken straight out the anime and that's what i want.

This is far from a simple statue....it's just that SC doesn't have the following larger Shonen/more mainstream animes have....
