Battleborn - My local game store had pre-order bonus figurines for launch.

Well it's a bonus right? Don’t look a gift horse in the teeth. :D
They are only collecting dust anyway.

Not often you find figures which look worse than McDonalds happy meal toys, that's impressive.

Yup, I saw one of these at work and couldn't stop laughing at the "quality". Still, they are free, unlike the Bravely Default figure.

I kinda want that. The only preorder bonus Australia gets is a stupid hat.

They gave me one anyway despite not preordering

That face is hilarious. Got some pics of the other figurines?

I've only got this from this promo video, so I can't tell if my brain is making shit up from blown up pixels, but it looks pretty funny anyway.

Omg this thread is hilarious.

Are these actual figures like for the game or was it just something your local store had made? I could understand them having that quality if it's just like some local guy made them for that store.

However to have them look like that from a legit official action figure maker , it's like 0 quality control.

Even the 1970's Gumby figures had more quality.

Wow. I mean, I know it's a free bonus and all, but wow. I wasn't expecting that.

Ugh, I'm just never buying collector's editions again. Too much garbage floating around.

There was a guy who filmed him opening all boxes but either he was completely oblivious or he didn't take a good look at the faces cause if this was my first time opening the boxes I would just stop completely and start laughing the rest of the video.

The highlights:




Orendi actually looked alright though.


There was a Miko figure as well but couldn't see it too well if it was good or not.

Gotta wonder if the figurine contractor just pocketed the money and outsourced the job to the cheapest manufacturer they could find.
