Ami Ami's Lame Bonus PostersAmi Ami's Lame Bonus Posters

TaralenTaralenIl y a 1 anAsk MFC
When I bought ITEM #451268 at a discount with the bonus, I had no idea what I was getting with their bonus poster. The plate it came with was cool, but the poster is just. . . a poster of the figure itself. What?

I noticed that AmiAmi is doing this with some of its bonuses:

img.amiami.jp/i...
img.amiami.jp/i...

Why would anyone want a bonus poster that's literally just a poster of the figure you're getting with it? Seems like such a lame thing to pay extra for.

AmiAmi bonuses done right:
www.amiami.com/...
www.amiami.com/...
www.amiami.com/...

I can justify getting an illustration that may have inspired the figure but why a picture of the figure itself? Lol Does anyone think this is super lazy on AmiAmi's part?

At least you don't have to dust the poster.

Actually, I thought up a couple of reasons. First, maybe it's for us old folks who don't see too well in our elder years. Sitting across the room from our display cabinets, in our rocking chairs, awaiting death, it's hard to see the figures way over there, but a nice big poster, we can see that. Probably.

Or the manufacturers are supplying retailers with such posters as promotional materials, and AmiAmi is passing a few of them along to those who might be interested.

Sometimes promotional stuff like that is neat, but honestly, I see enough when it is all over the figure's box. I have so many "regular" posters of anime and stuff that I don't see myself actually using a promo. but if I didn't pay extra for the figure photography, it is a neat thing to have, look at for a bit, and then toss in my poster tube.

lol yeah, the promo might outshine the figure itself. not just cuz it's bigger, but cuz they use really good lighting and angles to make the figure most flattering in the pictures. xD

Taralen (Il y a 1 an) #22000401How come, if you don't mind me asking? Just curious. :3
It's a combination of I like promo material like that (I'm just counting it as promo material versus an actual "made for Ami" bonus lol because as far as I'm concerned that's just the usual promo material used to advertise in physical stores) and I have a lot of them already because of that (e.g. from GSC), + I want to collect all the merch of my favorite character and not having those is basically just more stuff I don't have now lol.

I quite like things like that, I haven't got one from amiami but I did manage to nab the poster of a doll I ordered on eBay, I figure it'll be nice to display them together :3c

sarunamirabu (Il y a 1 an) #21969836I would've killed to get the promo poster (the poster that just has the figure photos plastered all over it) for some of the figures I have tbh.
OK not literally but yeah.

MugenTenshinFRD (Il y a 1 an) #21960781Well, at least is something. Usually there is the option too of buying the figure without the bonus for cheaper. It's just what you prefer.
I think it's nice for the folks who like to display the poster and figure together. I even see that the Queen's Gate one comes with a pretty big A3 tapestry that also can cost quite a bit.
Actually the posters are actually exclusive, they even could decide on a higher selling value if you were to sell the figure and poster together. But yeah, for the people that don't like posters like that, it might not be a great addition.


I would think the poster would outshine the figure itself in person if only cause it's bigger than the actual figure. xD

LMFAO. You are fucking great man.

Yeah that second point makes much more sense now that I think about it. The posters do look like promotional stuff you would hang in a store too. I know some people do have an appeal for these kinds of posters, but I wouldn't get them for figures I own.

GloriousNippon (Il y a 1 an) #21944561I don't think Amiami decides what the bonus is. It's probably the manufacturers.

Huh, I didn't think of that. Do you mean the figure manufacturer?

Kirenisa (Il y a 1 an) #21941338well it's better than nothing I suppose but I could see why those bonus items would be lame. :S you bought the figure to display it not to display it and have a poster of it. xD

Lol that's exactly what I'm thinking too.
