1000toys general thread

I just bought this guy at wonfes, he's my third 1000toys figure, after 1/6 and 1/12 synthetic human.
Mine was the second to last they had, l was so relieved..
l have to say l really love it.
It feels very sturdy, especially compared to the synthetic human, which is really light.
The lighting eyes are amazing, l didn't like the idea at first, but in person it looks so cool.
Sculpture is amazing, paintjob is really well done.
But, l also have to complain about a few things.
-The head articulation is really bad because of the collar armor. I think they could and should have designed it slightly differently, because the side to side movement is really bad, and also, it can basically open the jaw only when facing in front of him. In general articulation is not as good as l expected, but not that bad either.
-Same problem I'm having with the 1/6 synthetic human, wrist joints are REALLY bad, they don't stay together, feel very weak. Rotating the hand will easily split the joint in half. For a 25000 yen figure this is absolutely unacceptable.
-Lastly, the lack of gripping hands is a poor choice, for a toy that would look really well with a katana.
Overall l love it, it's a sculpture masterpiece, articulation is ok in general but disappointing in the head area.
The only serious issue is that they need to take better care of their joints especially at this price range.
Looking to start a new collection

Hello! I'm new to this hobby, but I REALLY want to start collecting.
I have been lurking on this board for a long time, and I still didn't decided what should I collect.
I must tell you first that I don't like collecting several things at the same time. You won't see in my shelf a Cyclops (X-Men) posing with a Naruto.
So, I also must add that I'm brazilian, and here the taxes are heavy. Then I must buy toys that are at the maximum price of U$60~80 dollars.
I really want to collect, so please give me suggestions of what should I buy.
I will focus on a line. The line must be long (more than 10 characters) and must be articulated. Preferebly 1:12 or 6 inches.
I will tell you what I like most:
- One Piece (VAH is a good idea, are they any good? Will the line continue to exist? So far we have several toys)
- Mezco 1:12 (I really like their design, especially the upcoming Dr Strange, Iron Man and the Dark Knight)
- Dragon Ball Z
- Metal Gear Solid (my favorite franchise, but I don't like PAKS)
- War themed figures (soldiers)
- Super-heroes (Marvel and DC. I would open an exception in this case and collect both)
- Kinnikuman (Ultimate Muscle)
- League of Legends
- World of Warcraft
- Medieval theme figures, like Knights and Dragons
I don't like:
- Marvel Legends
- Revoltech of any kind
Thanks guys! Please advice me and give me suggestions. I'm open to anything.
