Time for an essay.
I believe Busou Shinki is the cancer of toy. It was okay when there were occasional threads, but now they come up so frequent it's annoying. Threads about Busou Shinki, the war on neckbeard scalpers, Subjectanon, transformers movie/prime discussion with little mention of the toys, and Jin are way too frequent, and pushes aside threads about other important matters.
Yes Busou Shinki is a little bit of a better discussion because it revolves around a "toy". However, most threads end up looking the same involving random crappy art, discussion about the same shinkis over and over (Strarf, Pomock, Eukrante, etc). Also when someone is against Busou Shinkis, the Shinki people get all upset rather than just plainly ignore.
I heavily dislike the Shinki Community, most of them are stubborn elitist weeabo snobs or just plain shitposters who constantly talk about things no one cares about, like Beach Queens or /a/. (You know who you are!) Luckily some of them are smart enough to keep down shinkimania unlike some of the stupider anons who continuously make threads to simply antagonize those who do not like Shinkis. To make matters worse Busou Shinki world actually links /toy/ to make more Shinki people to come here. I guess they just want to send their followers straight into the slaughter house.
The shinkis themselves are kinda odd and fueled by bizzare fetishes with their themes. The ones that are weapon themed cater to the mecha musume fetish people.
Overall, I think too many Busou Shinki threads is ruining /toy/'s glorious visage! Also I think the shinki fans need to calm down and realize not everyone likes Shinkis and they can keep their obsession to within themselves or just one thread or not at all. Seriously, tired of this BS BS.
Sale Contemplation: Need Input

I wanted to start this thread up today to get some input from you all. To give you the low-down: I recently purchased a house, and while I brought a LOT of figures over from my time with my parents, I suddenly find myself with a set-up dedicated to Figuarts and Marvel Selects and...well, not much else.
I have a LOT of Marvel Legends figures (from Toybiz's wave 1 all the way to the Return Of Marvel Legends wave 2), but...well, I think I can't really give them the home they deserve anymore. They've been sitting in totes since I moved in here (October), and I have no real plans to display them in the future.
I have a lot of attachment to them because they were the first major line that I made an investment in, but with a combination of being spoiled with the advent of my collection of Figuarts and Marvel's comic universe taking a turn into complete shit, I just don't feel as vested in these guys anymore.
tl;dr Should I start selling off my ML collection? Have you been in a similar situation? I'd love your input here.
