ToyFarce News: Going Retro? Due To Rising Prices Of New Figures, Toy Reviewer Will Now Review Older Figures He Bought Before Doing Reviews
January 23, 2023
In case you missed it, or haven't seen people complaining all over social media for the last few days (lucky!), Hasbro
has announced a new Marvel Legends Spider-man
figure, with the new Gamerverse Advance Suit
, for a whopping $34,99
). This led to several toy reviewers
to reconsider their choices, and one of them came up with a perfect solution: Why buy new when you can tote-dive for old stuff and review them as if they were new?
"The toy prices are getting so out of hand that I will not be able to continue reviewing brand new figures right when they come out
", told Robert G.
, a collector from North Carolina. "But I also still want to keep posting content for my followers, so I came up with the idea of reviewing older figures from my personal collection, as if they were brand new. Most of them are in great condition so it's actually not that far from brand new, and I also have a lot of them still in mint condition, so I can now continue to do unboxing videos, even if I unbox figures that are 5-10 years old, instead of the newer stuff.
"I can also "cheat" a bit, and keep up with current themes: Whenever a new Spider-man figure will come out, I will review an old Spider-man action figure from my collection, which should still boost the views a bit, because people might think it's the latest one. Kinda like those rip-off movies that come out at the same time as big blockbuster movies, that have nearly exactly the same name, but were way cheaper to make!

For the record, this is not a bad decision after all. But reviewers should include not just retro videos, but reverse videos. In that case, they can recycle old footage and play it backwards. So everyone can enjoy how a loose item becomes mint in box again!
