>>10740246SHF Pan when?
From Tamashii's livestream"Enemy to go with Goku, more info coming before the end of the year"
>>10740250Oh boy. More Namek Saga figures. Can't wait.
>>10740250It's probably just exploding Namek pieces.
>It's been over 8 and a half years since SSB debuted in Resurrection 'F'>Bandai's first SSB Figuarts attempt released 6 months later, and was off-model, lacking the protruding bang>Bandai made a new hair sculpt for Goku Black Rosé a couple years later, still missing the protruding bang despite Black also having it in the source material>The inaccurate Rosé hair sculpt was subsequently reused for two Goku Black re-releases, a Broly movie SSB Goku, and Kaioken SSB Goku>Bandai finally made a new hair sculpt with a protruding bang, but have only used it for Goku's standard Super Saiyan full power release>The only way to get a proper Figuarts SSB/Rosé hair sculpt with protruding bang is to buy third party figures/DLCAm I the only one who's irked as fuck by this? If I'm expected to pay a premium for an action figure I expect them to get the damn details right, and to not have to resort to third party bootlegs to correct their mistakes.
>>10740244When do pre-orders open?
>>10740325>Parts of blown up Namek included with several figures>Collect them all!
>Buffku in a few days Brehs I can’t wait anymore…
Buu bros, our time is in 2026. Trust the plan.
queestion, has there even been a figuarts or third party brand that made a Goku figure that can be displayer in either base form with the black hair and the standard super saiyan hair?
>>10740449Vegeta got that perk with a full mouth.
Cell is 45 bucks on Amazon.
are there any good alternate 3rd party hair sets for Trunks?
>>10740453Is that head for when Vegeta and Nappa ate the bug people?
>>10740244Should get this Gohan or wait for his eventual SS2 form(if not dlc)?
>>10740531No. It's the head when Vegeta munch on Bulma's pussy.
>>10740549I'm waiting for the DF version becuase of the SS2 head sculptthe standard super saiyan gohan hair sucks ass
>>10740485Search for penholders bro
>>10740549Another SS2 teen Gohan? Not happening. That's what the battle damaged SS2 is for.At most, maybe they'll DLC the SS2 head parts with some other garbage releases.
>>10740332Still amazed its been 8 years and they haven't redone the whis gi yet.
>>10740332No, it's annoying as fuck and it's a big reason I purged a lot of my stuff. I'm actually excited for the new SS Gohan because I just prefer that look to SS2, but the original's hair looked like ass because it had that problem where the bangs just abruptly exist and the hair sculpt was flat and only looked good from the front; a problem which carried over to the battle damaged one because they basically copied over that same shitty silhouette despite being a new sculpt.I really hope bandai at some point will redo the RoF figures because they did Goku dirty with that wack sculpt and they absolutely fucked Vegeta over with that ab section.
>>10740622They might as well wait for the 10 year mark of RoF at this point.
>>10740622I'm not. It was his look for one movie that no one cared for anymore shortly after its release.
>>10740332Yea it pissed me off too, even more so when the anime stopped designing it that way as well. Only the manga has it. It was supposed to be slightly different from SS but the lazy fags at toei made it a SS recolor.
is gonna be baby
does any body have a picture of 2.0 trunks with the thigh removed? I just picked one up and the left thigh sticks a little bit.
>>10740795Don't forget he wore is for the U6 tournament. That's why I have mine posed fighting Hit.
I remember seeing a tier list of figures here a few threads ago, anyone have it?
i was wondering if i can remove the pelvis from frieza FF? did anyone try to do it?
>>10740250Will this be the last Frieza for a while? I'm so sick that motherfucker infecting the line.
>>10740799Is he pondering that orb?
>>10741083probably. the only thing else I could see would be them rereleasing the golden one, although the super shit has kind of come to a halt other than all the shil figures for the superhero movie.
>>10741177kinda amazed how every single Super Super hero figure where mediocre at best
>>10741177They hinted at more Super stuff at the end of the stream, I think it'll be Manga figures.
19 bros... is anthony sama right??
>>10741232Wtf are up with 19's knees?
>>10741232>that faggot>righthe's a retard, I only watch two videos of him and not only he doesn't know shit about the characters but he also doesn't have common sense
>>10741252He has a good point about the >bad ab crunch, bad shoulders, weirdly deep butterfly joint that leaves gapping, and it's way to glossy. 19 is just fucking bad. They didn't even paint the silver around the red dot on the hands.
>>10741232 i was able to resist first form cell because i didn't like how he looked and him being a regular relase and all, but these fuckers got me with 19 and 20 and FOMO. already regretting before having them in hand. It is so weird at how much shittier the android/cell villains all look in comparison to Namek/Frieza characters and the Buus and why they are all scaled completely differently.
>>10741286What's wrong with first form cell, other than him not being tall enough?
>>10741289Both him and 19 are too short, at this rate Cell 2.0 will be under-scaled again.>>10741252He's not wrong about 19 the figure sucks. If its not Namek Bandai doesn't bring their A game.
>>10741232why would they even bother making this guy? terrible fig and no one wants him. i don't get it. this could have been goten or trunks.
>>1074130119 is a good height. Imperfect Cell is way too short. Piccolo is way too short and Vegeta's height is based on him being at the end of Z and Super which for whatever reason is taller and it throws everything slightly off for earlier arcs. Worse for Namek and Saiyan. Hopefully I can just hit all of 19 with a matte finish though.
So was the new Gohan really the only reveal? I thought they were acting like we were gonna get quite a bit of news from this event.
Bbts cancelled my nappa and whis fuck man. Guess I'll go without them.
>>10741467Yeah it blows ass. I don't know if they wanted to focus on all of the new less popular lines, but last year we got 4 reveals. Can't believe we only got 1.
>>10741535No cell... it's overer
>>107415353 really, Pan was already shown at sdcc
>>10741232How attention hungry are you?
>>10741467>>10741535I think they changed the way they're marketing some lines including the DB one. Sure we got very few news at this TN but last years we didn't have as many figures revealed throughout the year. We got two reveals/preorders a month the last frew months so unless they start releasing figures faster, they can't really reveal a lot more.
>>10741232he better give Blue sama a good score or they'll be oceans of fury aimed at him, right anon?
OP needs a NEVER EVER section under prototypes. I'll start>NEVER EVER:GotenKid Trunks
>>10740311This but unironically
>>10741232isn't that figure like $80? it doesn't really look like it
>>10741535Bandai picked up a lot of licenses recently, probably part of their strategy following the move of manufacturing to Vietnam.I'm not complaining, thankfully I enjoy a lot of shonen outside of just DB so tamashii are still killing it for me.
>>10741838What does $80 even look like? That's like a meal out for 2 and a bottle of wine.Atleast the figure will last longer. Consider it good value compared to what else I would get for such a small amount.
>>10741856They drop them faster than they pick them up though.
>>10741738Misinformation. Goten and Kid Trunks will get prototypes. They are just perfecting the articulation technology before making our boys so Goten and Trunks will be able to do all the Fusion Dance poses.
>>10741859Dunno, Naruto, One Piece, Berserk, Jujutsu, CSM all seem to still be getting more figures, looking like we'll have some 10+ figure rosters soon.
>>10740531It was made to go with the dinner table diorama set for Goku. The Demoniacal Fit Proud Prince included a plate of curry, spoon hand, drumstick hand, and chewing Vegeta head.
>>10741860we do not accept pedos in our general. Please leave with Pan pedo.
>>10741880Goten and Trunks fans are not involved in pedophilia. They appreciate the wholesome shenanigans of Goten and Trunks's hi-jinks, there is no sexual element unlike Pan Pedos.
>>10741858absolutly not 19fuck i paid 110eur for cooler and no matter what pose you put him, hes worth every penny
>>10741886i wish i didn't miss cooler. Most impressive figure for sure. I hope they reissue him eventually, he's just too awesome. Even my non dbz fan friends think he looks awesome.
>>10741886you're just into body shaming fat people. If you don't own android 19 then you should be thrown into prison for discrimination.
>>10741886>>10741895Sounds like personally preference. Sure Cooler is a nice figure, but his application is limited considering the form only appeared in one non-canon movie.You said you paid 110 EUR for him, whereas 19 is only 75 EUR. I would say say he's decent value relatively given he is canon, appears in both manga and anime, fights both goku and vegeta and overall probably has the same amount of screen time as cooler did.
>>10741886Unless you have to use his butterfly joints.
>>10741924Let’s not forget he is literally the man that defeated Son Goku
>>10741924if he's so great then where are your photos of him in cool poses? not one person has taken photos of android 19 in anything but a neutral standing pose. To me that says there's not much excitement for this character and/or his posing ability sucks
>>10741932Exactly>>10741958He's not even out in Japan yet. Give it a few weeks.
>>10741924Cooler will always be the best figure just because his design is that cool. The only figure that could rival him is a good imperfect Cell
>>10741924>but his application is limited considering the form only appeared in one non-canon movieNot really unless you have autism. I pose him fighting against Turles, Nappa, Frieza and even characters from another series
>>10742038>I pose him fighting against Turles, Nappa, Frieza and even characters from another seriesNgmi
>>10741924I have those stands and can't even get full power Jiren to stand up without his weight pulling the arm down how the hell do you accomplish something like this...
>>10742160You can tighten the screws up, which will make the stands hold better.
>>10742038He's in heroes.
>>10742176I never watched heroes
>>10742162Somehow never thought of this... actually worked though, thanks
>>10742178Okay, I was just letting you know he was in Heroes.
>>10742280Isn't heroes like a big fanfiction of a few main kids characters or something like that? Makes sense that Cooler is there
>>10742303>Wrong oneHe is in his 5th form during Heroes aswell. This golden form is fuvking hilarious though. I'd love a figurearts of it. I'm pretty sure theirs a 6th form golden meta Cooler in heroes aswell.
>>10742322The movies were just cash grabs to fund the series. I see no difference.
>>10742386how fuck up is that heros have bigger balls to make a better design that dragonball super with golden frieza
>>10742383And better too!Koyama>Toriyama
>>10742034>Imperfect CellI wished the one we got came out better than it did. His short size, finicky as hell wings, and squeaky ass hips all hold it back for me. Could've been a 10/10 fig.
>>10742511he's a figure that would have come out in 2014 and people would be asking for 2.0 of.
Gohan preoder november 21.
ok so I've seen people gushing over the Tonsen Vegetas periodically and now actually considering getting them(never purchased a headsculpt). anyone can confirm that they are worth it and which version they went with? (I'm thinking A looks better). Seems like some of the faces are kind of redundant though and included just for padding... does look a lot better than the official version
>>10742034I'm personally looking forward to Niggerlips Cell. I think he is the lines best chance at a decent Cell because they have to make him the biggest.
I sort of want this new Gohan but i donlt want to get trapped in a DLC extra heads racket like what happened with superhero Gohan
>>10742637just don't buy the figures you don't want
>>10742622those are expensive but really put anything pumped to date by bandai to shame
>>10742622They're worth it.
>>10742708looks like shit
>>10742581Autists/Bandai knob polishers here have a knee-jerk hatred for third party shit like this, but these Majin heads are easily the best thing Tonsen have done so far. It all just depends on whether you want to pay that much for a head, but it is definitely 10x better than the down syndrome official faces.

>>10742921One of the easiest pre-orders in a while. The sites didn't even slow down. Nothing like G5 Luffy.Managed to get my Gohan quite easily from ninnin.
>>10742921Fuck sold out everywhere in less than a min. Guess I'm diving into the trenches at amico tomorrow.
What's going on with Hobbysearch? no new Bandai PO
>>10743062Hope they're not shutting down.
>>10740453I have this. Great Vegeta figure.
>>10742921The only things I like from figure this is the dynamic-swept hair part and that yellow saiyan hair color used.Having already owned the original 1.0 and battle-damaged SS2, I find it very hard to rationalize to get yet another teen Gohan. What's your excuse?
>>10743064I fucking hope so. A holes. Rudest service I've ever used.
>>10743078I don't have one.
>>10743078Yeah. This is why I only bought one. I own the 1.0 and 2 copies of the battle damaged ver. This will replace the 1.0 on my shelf. No need for another. They will likely do a ss2 anyway.
>>10743078I also have had the 1.0 and battle-damaged. Personally I prefer non-battle-damaged figures, just a preference. For this figure, I think the wired cloak is nice, but the absolute biggest seller are the ankles. Proper ankle rockers on a teen Gohan. This kid has never been able to properly hold a wide stance because of it, the most basic articulation withheld for no fucking reason. The new style hips also just look nicer, and I like the deep purple. I figured an updated version was coming so I sold off my battle-damaged. I still gave my old SDCC one because I liked the colors more, but this one is good for it. I'll sell my SDCC for 200 bucks or something and this one is almost a strict replacement. I can live without SSJ2 head. I think we're getting to a point where some older figures do warrant a newer release to update the style of articulation, but for people who have been collecting for a long time and are satisfied with what they have, yeah I think it's completely reasonable to not jump on this.
>>10743062I caught it last minute. I guess they started an hour late or so.
>>10743078The lack of an SSJ2 head was enough to get me not to buy this.
>>10743083Unhelpful and condescending tone. Take ages to reply and when they do they just refer you to their published policies and don't offer any actual assistance.It started when they invoiced me for an item that came out 31st July and then another PO came 3rd August before I'd paid the previous invoice and they still refused to combine citing there no combination across different months policy. Same with delays.They then started saying my country didn't exist and kept asking me for the correct address even though they had shipped to it previously.Then they said I had to use DHL, with higher quotes for the same size/weight than Amiami and mandarake.Then they sent stuff to the wrong country out of laziness and palmed it off on DHL. Wouldn't respond to any requests to change stuff and told me I'd have to pay shipping again if returned.Then after so many bad experiences I told them to just cancel all my pre-orders and shut down my account and they REFUSED citing their no cancellation policy. LolI wished them luck getting me to pay for anything and just blocked them.
>>10743193You make a few good points but others are plain baffling.>don't offer any actual assistanceMaybe you talked to someone whom English is their second language or you said something to piss them off. My interactions with them have been mostly positive, as long as your requests are reasonable.>they still refused to combine citing there no combination across different months policy. Same with delays.Most stores don't offer combination across different months. You should know this before ordering with them. I'll concede a point though that their website is ancient making it virtually impossible to combine things within the month.>They then started saying my country didn't existWhat wartorn hell-hole do you live in?>I wished them luck getting me to pay for anything and just blocked themIt's a cultural thing in Japan to honour your word. Youll find most places don't take kindly to idiots acting like karens at walmart.
New Goku has a trucker tan
>>10743239Should have gone all the way and given him the wife beater.
>>10743239For fucks sake, Bandai...
>>10743199I think it helps when customer support are polite and explain the situation. Like amiami support is great. Once I had 2 items combined that they had to split due to their size and they went into detaill about the box sizes and weight with pictures etc. Really trying to show that they were trying to accommodate my request, but had limitations. Other times when parcels have gone missing they've just issued a refund right away, no questions asked.Ninnin and genki are even better though. I've had free of charge upgraded from airmail to dhl. They've resent returns that were failed to be delivered free of charge. They offered to combine items, and refund shipping cost difference even when already paid in advance.Just all in all a much more conscientious service. I don't know what monkeys are employed by HS.Also I interms of where I live, its a small island not part of a mainland country, but most retails make the effort to get stuff to me and don't blame me if they can't find it.
>>10743239Fucking ruined it
>>10743239looks like shit
>>10743279Shit. You beat me to it.
>>10743268AH GOD DAMN IT! the sculpt is so much better, why did they have to fuck up the chest color???
>>10743268Neck's a bit short, but looks good overall. Definitely getting him.
>>10743268huge upgrade, makes awakening look pitiful
>>10743268I love the yellowish orange on the new Goku.
>>10743239WHHYYYYYYYYyyyyy. Whhy the FUCK IS IT LIKE THIS. I was so excited about this damn figure. This is pathetic. Cancelling my motherfucking pre-order. This shit is unacceptable. I'm so fucking disappointed ugggh :(
>>10743239Aside from the chest color fuckery, he looks absolutely fantastic.
>>10743268Oh shit. He looks like a fat downie in cosplay. Kek. My sides!!
>>10743268>dat almost non-existent neck>saiyan wigs that don't fit>mismatch skin colorThis is so fucking bad.But it looks so good on the promo pics.What the fuck happened. Vietnam production again?
>>10743350Can't someone incite the instagram mob to mass complain?Even those asskissers have to be disappointed with this.
>>10743308I thought you already cancelled all your pre-orders?
>>10743350Looks good to me.
man you motherfuckers are dumbare you guys running a false narrative, because there is no way this is your first db shf with a bit of mismatch between parts
>>10743360Ok smarty pants, name one single time in the entirety of the production of these figures that Bandai has ever re-issued a figure to correct an engineering/paint/qc issue? EEs do not count. You're gonna take your farmers tan goku and like it, or you're gonna have to wait for some sort of EE, or wait until they make a 4.0 and hope they don't fuck that one up too.
>>10743396>a bitI can deal with the neck/face shit, but when it's the entire fucking torso it's a big L.
>>10743350AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHALITERALLY NO-NECK SHIT!
>>10743268So he's actually shorter than awakening here at the shoulder. Thought they were making him a bit bigger like Trunks but I guess not.
>>10743401Namek Vegeta stole it
>>10743400By figure standards, it's barely perceptible. I've seen far more glaring mismatches in the DB SHF line alone that people just looked right past.So again: are we dealing with newfags or is someone just trying to astroturf here?
>>10743268The sculpt is good, but the whole figure seems to fit awkwardly, especially the neck and hair. Something must have gone wrong with the QC process.
>>10743392After zoro and guts I thought you cancelled all your figuarts orders.
>>10743410The only figuarts pre-order I've had this year was this.
TIL this thread just preorders blindly
>>10743417I was looking forward to it so much... I'm still trying to wrestle with myself if I can live with the farmer's tan. I guess it's not too terrible, it just doesn't make sense to me, when they've done flesh torsos before with no issues, yet for some reason the one everyone has been anticipating and super excited for gets fucked up.
We've had these discolorations for entire chests for ages.Most people get it in hand and don't notice it unless they have a bright spotlight shining on it.
>>10743418Explain how you can't as a non-Bandai employee
>>10743268DF, your turn.
>>10743422I'm talking about the neck.Some of you guys literally pre-order based on name alone, because anyone with functioning eyes could see the neck was short.That's part of the entire roided out aesthetic that you were creaming yourselves silly over. Huge trapezius obscuring most of the neck.
>>10743427>implying their shit isn't even worse
>>10743421I would like an example of a full flesh torso figure that also has this problem. One that isn't wearing a vest or piece of clothing, which usually means they have to paint a part of the plastic to match the molded flesh color because it's all one mold, which I understand.
>>10743428Every gi Goku's chest.Second Form Frieza's face compared to every other part of his body.
>>10743406Over emotional Mexicans plus a troll that's been shitting up a few threads.
>>10743421He's naked from the waist up though, there's no details they have to paint or anything like that. That's the only excuse for something like this and it doesn't apply to this figure
You guys consider 2nd form Frieza a figure of the year and his face doesn't match his skin at all in a blatantly obvious way regardless of the lighting. This is a slight tone difference that will probably be invisible in normal conditions so whatever.
>>10743421>We've had these discolorations for entire chests for ages.Broly, Jiren, Awakening Goku, SS2 Gohan are all fine.Tien has it a bit and it annoys the fuck out of me there too.They -can- get it right, just admit they're too lazy instead of defending and wanting this shit to happen.
>>10743444I'm not admitting or denying shit. I'm telling you you guys are being ridiculous and neurotic as per usual.First pictures come out under bright light, you throw a tantrum and faint on the spot, and then you get the figure and it's fine.
Nice pink vs more brown skin tone difference between chest and arms btw.
>>10743447You're more autistic than I, because I barely see a difference unlike in >>10743350
>>10743452Really? It's an entirely different hue.One leans more pink, the other leans more orangeish.
Ahh, bare chest Gokus.
>>10743452Nah, I can see the difference on the Broly.I'm keeping reservations because photos are photos. I'll just wait until I see a variety of pics from different sources before I make a final call. It can be bad still but time will tell.
>>10743452You really can't? I'm guessing alot of this is because of lighting. You probably won't notice once you have it.
>>10743447>>10743461Am I supposed to see something?Because pic rel is a lot more noticeable.
>>10743465Yeah, we can see the discoloration apparent on both those pictures you replied to.
>>10743461>>10743465Holy shit the bulk difference is insane. How does the MUI head look on the new body?
Today, anons learned that $50 toys are in fact not perfect pieces of art
>>10743396i coped back in 2016 with how shit Gotenks's chest was. but fuck coping now. they should know better
>>10743469I get transformers that are for $50 and they are actually perfect.Sucks for DB fans that they'll never get a perfect 3rd party scene with Bandai being vicious.
>>10743478They're painted lego blocks stacked together. Nothing to screw up.
>>10743432>>10743447>>10743452Nothing like >>10743465
You guys enjoy cancelling your order.
>>10743418It's just eurocucks. They have no choice but to get fucked upfront.
Has anyone hit 1st form Cell with a matte finish?
>>10743487Undervaluing the intricacies of the transfomation having more engineering than the best of DB SHF.
>>10743497>literally the only place where you can buy any figure from this line months (sometimes years) after releaseyeah totally the euros, that adds up
>>10743497>preordering in Europekek
>>10743497>implying we pre-orderThis is all you POing from Japan and BBTS, burgers.
>>10743497Stupid burgershitter lol
>>10743498Good question, actually.
>>10743506>BBTSso? just cancel?
>>10743477>>10743239literally how and why? Everything else about this figure looks great, hope it's not as noticeable in person.
Why is his mouth-to-chin ratio all fucked up? Makes his face look super weird.
>>107435773rd face was a mistake from the start. Even if done correctly it would still look bad.
>>10743498No. He's supposed to be slimy.
>>10743583He is? He never looked all that glossy. Just compare Cell to the glossy black bio armor bits on his head and chest. I was just wonder how a matte coat would look. I'd definitely tape up the black bits so they stay glossy.
>>10743268I like the face sculpt and clothing colors more on the new one but otherwise I prefer the old one in just about every way.
>>10743577Beast Gohan had the same issue with the sideburns. Weird they are still having problems with it.
>>10742622I got both because I couldn't decide and I ended up preferring the pearlescent one. The effect is much subtler in person than in photos you see online, and I just think it looks more like super saiyan 2. Meshes better with the color palette of the demoniacal fit majin vegeta as well in my opinion.>faces are kind of redundantI could have done with a couple less grinning faces in exchange for gritted teeth, an alternate yelling head (the one included is a little goofy) or the one with a fist imprint like in the other tonsen headsculpt sets. It's still very worth it though. I mean it's a massive difference from bandai's usual vegeta faces.
>>10743616Left and right look really good.But so long as the bodies are still shit, it's like putting lipstick on a pig.
>>10743583sounds like headcanon to cope with the shit glossy finish
>>10743619>like putting lipstick on a pig.hot.
>>10743619Yeah, well, this is the best we've got until bandai quit dicking around with shitfigs like #19 and give the people what they really want
>>10743616Is Vegeta the only one with not a single good body?
>>10743350Are you guys ever happy? Seriously?
>>10743628Super Saiyan 4's good. The thighs are only a problem if you have him standing straight up. I wish he could turn his head more though
>>10743625You're not wrong! I just feel like it's really beyond time we get a Majin Vegeta 2.0. I know the faces won't be as good as those ones, but the old SHF Majin Vegeta body is pretty garbage.
>>10743268Surprised at how big the hair is for new Goku. Old awakening had huge hair and this one is even bigger.
>>10743639They refuse to give us good products. why should we be happy with this garbage?
>>10743268I'm not a huge fan of the hair sculpt (I think Awakening's does a better job of capturing the more flowing way Toriyama drew it at the time) but it's the neck that's throwing it off more than anything else.
>>10743659Funny. My opinion is basically the opposite. I don't like the Awakening hair at all.
>>10743639If you have this much whining about a well articulated, accessory packed, nicely sculpted Goku figure, then WHAT FUCKING FIGURE FROM THE LINE DO YOU LIKE???? Because there's not a single SHF that's without flaws.
>>10743681 meant for >>10743654Please tell me your favorite figures from the line, and I'll tell you why it's absolute shit even if it's a figure I, too, love. II want to make you realize nothing in life is perfect through fucking toys.
>>10743685NTA but my favorite is Final Form Cooler.But I'm really happy with this Goku as well, if the chest discoloration isn't too noticeable IRL. If it is.. well, shit. Not sure what to do about that, then.
>>10743685I don't think they've ever made a single good figure in this line.
>>10743692Why are you here?
>>10743350holy autismo >>10743703uhh goku bros?? what happen with our height??
>>10743603The thing is the face is the life of a figure that pretty much outweighs everything else. You can put a great head on a mediocre body (which the new one isn't by any means) and it would still look good. You put an ugly face on a good body and it still looks bad. The awakening face in that picture looks bootleg by modern standards.
>>10743703I really hope his skin issue isn't too noticeable in real life, because damn does he look nice.
>>10743703I find it funny how the skin discoloration on FPSS Goku's chest part is 10 times more noticeable.
>>10743703SSJ 2 would be the great if it wasn’t for that giraffe neck. They always have to fuck something up. Why is that?
>>10743689It's hard to get an accurate gauge with these pics. Depending on the lighting, it can look absolutely egregiously bad. In other cases though, it doesn't look as horrendous and might be ok. The pics with very harsh lights seem to do a better job at hiding the color difference.
>>10743577This is the best Goku sculpt. Wish the neck was longer.
>>10743735Wonder what can be done about the discoloration if it's truly unavoidable.
>>10743742juts repaint it yourself LMAO
>>10743742Hope for a 2nd run that matches better.
>>10743350>>10743477>>10743575>>10743582>>10743692>“NOOO, WHY IS MY CHINESE CARTOON DOLL NOT PERFECT NOO!”Do you guys ever wonder where you went wrong in life?
>>10743717Because that's bare plastic vs painted plasticBuffku is bare plastic all over so there's no reason for it not to match I feel this is something Bandai will probably fix in a reissue or 2nd run without even telling anyone about it and then the people defending it will shift over to laughing at the poor beta testers The only hope right now is that Bandai usually fixes a few glaring issues from the Japanese releases in time for Western ones, hopefully that'll be the case here
>>10743753I don't wanna buy another of the same figure just to fix an issue that shouldn't be there.>>10743752I guess one could, but painting it doesn't sound like a great idea.
>>10743742Nothing. If this sort of stuff bothers you this whole line isn't for you because it's filled with things like this.
>>10743439>You guys consider 2nd form Frieza a figure of the year and his face doesn't match his skin at all in a blatantly obvious way regardless of the lightingit's not that bad
>>10743763Anon it's completely fucking bad.It looks off in any sort of lighting.
>>10743639No. We hate everything and everyone.Welcome to the Internet.
>>10743755Stop defending a bad product.
>>10743350This Goku is literally turd.
New Goku would look great with blood. Why don't they add that?
>>10743708I'm not shitting on the new one and might even grab it when it hits domestic retail. The neck issue looks worse in some photos than others and the tone matching issue is egregious in this case. That said, the last DB SHF I picked up was Super Hero Piccolo, so I'm not as triggered/fixated with the line as much as some of the other skeptics are. I get the complaints though.
>>10743770Do you own it?
>>10743765I still think it's not that bad, it's noticeable if you pay attention but it doesn't ruin the figure and make it look horrible.
>>10743777Probably licensing. Japan is difficult with blood/gore and tying that to age restrictions. Apparently they had to put effort to even get Piccolo's little purple slime arm allowed.
>>10743787>one piece>QCNigga this better be an ironic statement
>>10743804He's just trying to instigate.>>10743703God that FPSS is just the worst.
>>10743703Nononon, this means a shorter vegeta is in the works... right? RIGHT??
>>10743824Yes but he has about five times the neck this Goku does
>>10743703the height, the height! THE HEIGHT!!! why must you do this to us bandai? Why cant you fix the damn height with goku you mother fuckers?!! Bandaii!!!!!!!
>>10743779No and I never will.
>>10743854damn that was fast, i was thinking the same
>>10743811lmao he got immediately deleted, cant even make the bait believable
>>10743854DB community faster than Burter with the diss art lol
>>10743888>posting a manlet.
>>10743703Shirtless 1 and ssj2 look like different characters. 2 has a long thin neck while 1 has a thick small neck.
>>10743239>>10743268>>10743350>>10743369>>10743465>>10743477>>10743575>>10743577>>10743703We got cocky. The expectations were so high for this to be a perfect goku we set ourselves up for dissapointment. Who would have thought it would be an off tone plastic. Thought that was more hasbros style.I'll still take it though as otherwise it seems a decent figure and will be needed for when we get buff frieza, but think I prefer my kitbash.
>>10743911Nicely fried picture so that we can't tell if that has mismatching.
are the quality of these figures lowering lately?
>>10743703wtf is thishe looks like got a buff of 20 kg of pure muscle but lost a few inches in the process lmao
>>10743703>Goku closest to Vegeta has too bright of hair and is pinker than the SS2 version>SS2 face looks like a child throwing a tantrum over his ripped shirt, too stylized and doesn't translate well from the anime/manga/wherever the fuck they found that face>plus the hair looks like it has separated from his scalp and is more of a cream color than yellow which is largely due to the shade from the hair draping over his face>middle one is roided out, has no neck, and the chest looks like it is a different color than the arms>but at least the hair is nice. Not too yellow not too pale. Too bad he's shorter than the other 2 for some reason
>>10743943>he looks like got a buff of 20 kg of pure muscle but lost a few inches in the process lmaoThat's exactly what happened, it isn't just the lack of neck. In order to make him look closer to the source not only did they made the torso wider but also shortened it. And it looks accurate to the art, but the problem of doing things that way is evident when you compare it with other Gokus, that torso made him shorter.What Bandai should have done if they weren't so retarded sometimes is increase the size of the overall figure slightly to compensate. But they didn't, so obviously that shorter torso is going to make for a shorter figure.
>>10743940Bro!? Rememeber Hit and all the Ginyu fuckers? Raditz?
>>10743943The muscle stretched his horizontally, so he shrunk, but torso and neck widened.>>10743974Non-scale line please understand.
>>10743986Ginyu Force? Literally best figures in the line.
>>10743854Spread this like wildfire those bastards need to know they’ve wronged us.
>>10743986Wtf is wrong with Hit other than his shitty skirt? I have him and he's perfectly fine.
>>10743997As a standalone, and probably posed with other stuff where you won't notice the mm of shortness, I still think he looks like a solid figure.
>>10743986I like Raditz, he's a solid figure with good balance and enough articulation to do a lot of good fighting poses.Ginyu is good too, I only hate his shoulder pads, sadly I don't have the rest of the force
you will barely be able to notice the height
>>10743940Reissues out the ass with poor QC, a different hair sculpt every time, less accessories, accessories for other figures that come with less popular ones (i.e. Gamma 1, 2, and super hero broly all having accessories for super hero Gohan who, by himself, is pretty bare. Whether or not this will become a trend or is just a one time thing who knows) and increased prices for much less in terms of accessories. Turles and Cooler are good examples of this. Turles comes with extra hands and an effect part plus the cape plus the scouter. Cooler...comes with an articulated tail. And a face plate without the mask. That's it really besides some feet. No base head where you could just pop off the shoulder plates and have base Cooler.So take all that into consideration and make an informed decision yourself.
>>10744009>No base head where you could just pop off the shoulder plates and have base Cooler.are you dumb?
>>10743677I don't think the new hair sculpt is bad. It just sicks out a little given how scene-specific accurate they were clearly aiming to be.
>>10744014Change the head, take off the shoulder rings, and remove the white tip on his tail and you'd get base Cooler.
its fucked up how there's a high chance 3rd party will fix this goku
>>10744019NoYou'd need new head, new shoulder armor, new forearm armor, new shin armor, new tail tip and oh you'd also need him to be like half the fucking size of Final Form, just a tiny detail
>>10743997cant really notice the chest discoloration here.
>>10743703Full power goku is awful. What were they thinking?
>>10744035DF chads WWA
>>10743997Looks good. I think some of you fuckers are over exaggerating.
>>10744055>I think some of you fuckers are over exaggeratingDragonball fans are never happy. How new are you?
>>10744019The dude is 3 times as tall and broad as his base form.
>>10744038>>10744057What about this picture? From the same dude.
>>10744062I can't see shit on this picture kek. Too blury.
>>10744001I think you're only really gonna notice the height if you pose him standing completely stationary in neutral stance in a line next to other gokus like an autist. Its not ideal but people should stop acting as if height issues are something cimpletely new in this line lmao.
>>10743937Yeah was an edit from my old phone so couldn't revert. He's another.>>10743953I said I was getting it, just wasn't thrilled however >>10743997 has me thinking we jumped the gun and it was just harsh lighting.
any Tao Pai Pai fans here?if so would any of you guys buy shirtless Tao with sword/grenade and numerous face plates. Not really sure if anyone but me would be interested in this.What do you think they could do to sweeten the deal? Bora grave perhaps?
>>10743707>Calls autism on valid complaints>Questions heightWelcome to the spectrum.>>10743854Kek
>>10743997Hmm, perhaps we were too quick to say it looks like shit.
>>10744095Dunno about shirtless Tao but would buy Cyborg Tao Pai Pai Bummed that he doesn't include those parts but it's understandable since he has his entire pillar to ride on Since they love DLC so much nowadays, they could make a World Tournament Tien and put Cyborg Tao parts with him
>>10744097unless they fix the height from now on my complain about the height is valid while your is fucking retarded
cloth cape gohan up on bbts
>10744105Height has always been inconsistent. If it bothers you that much, this line isn't for you.
>>10744095I like him as a character (he's one of my favorite DB villains, even) but never bothered to get the first SHF to begin with.
>>10744185he's pretty fun. only problem is his really tiny feet.
the cope ITT is unreal. Thats what you get for buying into bandaislop.
>>10744188I didn't care for the kid Goku figure and skipped it too, otherwise I would have both. Tao Pai Pai always looked like one of the best sculpts in the entire line to me and still does.
>>10743350>there are actual shills defending this turdholy shit how sad. Actually feel disgusted. Gonna sell all my shf garbage
what up with all these fucking troll post are the one piss fans seething this hard because our line isnt DoA
>>10744038>>10744055>>10744098Are you guys really CopeMaxxing so much that you can't tell that the camera flash is just washing all the difference out?
>>10743911Shut up Kanji. Stop being such a drama queen.
What happened to these threads? Discussing a new release has never been this shitty before.
>>10744271Yikes.I'll wait for the apology re-issue, thanks for beta-testing.
>>10744221>NOOO STOP LIKING WHAT I DONT LIKE!
>>10744263>Poor fag mad because he can't afford new figures.
>>10744271Wonder how it looks on the Full Power Goku body.
The discolored chest isn’t great but everything else looks pretty good to me. Is there any figure from this line without flaws?
>>10744299I quite like how it looks on awakening at least, the faces are a huge improvement
>>10744294Brah the end of year haul I'm getting from all my preorders coming due in Nov/Dec is probably well over a grand.I'd have picked this dude up too if he wasn't so botched. You are defending it now out of sunken-cost but when it gets re-issues with fixed color, everyone sticking up for it now will throw a spicy tanty and rage about needing to buy it again. Believe it.
>>10744319>when it gets re-issues with fixed colorNot him but this isn't a thing.
>>10744271regular ss bangs are the best option
>>10744270There's a big schizo and some shitposters running around now but also lots of people trying to cope and justify their purchase of a figure with a big QC issue Things will be back to normal soon since very few will actually be posting their own copy and will simply move on to the next figure to hype up or shit on
>>10744324Didn't the latest Trunks have better qc for the American release?
>>10744327>implying that he's not the schizo
>>10744271I’m I crazy for preferring Awakenings body? I might swap the bodies.
>>10744331CQ on joints and such can differ per batch but they're not going to change what parts they do/don't paint when reissuing the same figure. They only do that sort of thing for EE.
>>10744294>Being this insecure about your purchase to be projecting everyone as poorfagsI pity you.
>>10744342They really need to start adding blood to figures.
I like him.
>>10744372Looks alot better than that Moe's kit bash.
>>10744324>alt colours aren't a thing Why do we have so many Friezas? Why was Goku black and Brolly multiple times with minor color tweaks? Bandai does "special colour versions" all the time, and this time they have egg on their face. No way in hell it comes with the same botched chest when it gets re-released. They'll probably just change the sheen on the hair and call that good enough for a reason to make a new version.
>>10744341>change plastic injection colour for one part to match the others>THEY DON'T DO THAT!Lol, they will my dude, there no way they aren't drowning in complaints about it right now. If you are this insecure about it, just sell your fig now and wait for the fixed release like the rest of us.
>>10744379A recolored release is not the same as a direct reissue.>>10744386I didn't buy it.
>>10744393>they wouldn't fix a blatant QC oversight with a subsequent reissue....Because?
>>10744271at this point we only bought him for a better ssj1 headthis chest defect sucks lol
New Goku is good. Simple as.
>>10744394Their track record. All I'm seeing in recent years is Bandai cheaping out on material and cq. But if you're so sure, show me multiple proven examples of them improving on a figure after a reissue, not counting those recolored releases.
>>10744271Did this person say in the post if its a perfect fit or is it loose?
>chimping out over a minor detailPure cancer.
>complete meltdowns on instagramThis is pretty funny
>>10744410>minor detail>looks like he's wearing a flesh wife-beaterlol
>>10744417Post some, I don't have insta, can't see comments
>>10744397>show me multiple proven examplesI doubt they could even show you one example.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAVDLLWl6poHis chest doesnt look horrible here. Still a little disappointing. Always 1 step forward 2 steps backwards with Bandai.
>>10744456it looks like shit no matter how much you cope
>>10744461I said it's disappointing how am I coping you autist?
Buffku is getting torn apart on instagram. Are people finally fed up with their bullshit? Especially after Trunks and Guts.
>>10744456Full Power Goku is such an awful figure.
>>10744456>His chest doesnt look horrible hereLooks the same to me. It's still very obvious.
>>10744456Around 13:00 she says you can't face swap with full power Goku. She never brings up the skin tone thing.
Just got these 2Armor Trubksbis barebones and pretty small but I do like the hair sculptThe latest Trunks has a fantastic mold and the hair is also amazing. Arms and legs are a bit finicky and putting the sword with the awful belt soft plastic piece is a pain but man, he is sharp
>>10744505Anyone has the Trunks bootleg versions? I was thinking of getting them to try to make some custom abominations
I got late into preorders and will have to wait until Feb for ssj goku, they will fix his chests color by then right? Right? Please let me believe I really want this goku
Gohan sold out in 1 second. I don't think people talking shit on social media is going to work.
Wtf. Added Gohan to my cart as soon as it opened but it said insufficient stock. Less than 10 seconds
>No stock againSites should fix their shit
>>10744538Same. This might be the most fucked up one so far.
I think Im gonna wait for a release of the new gohan once its released, gotta see how theyre gonna deal with the whole ssj2.
>>10744548Just gonna check in ten minute increments. That's when they usually put them back up. But Gohan was seriously there for only a second which is pretty ridiculous.
Can't wait see what QC issues the new Gohan will have. Thanks everyone that got him for beta testing.
>>10744574Yeah waste of time. I'm out. Might try my local Amazon later to see if it gets listed.
>>10744505>>10744508don't bother with those, the bootlegs of trunks are horrible, the one of the sword is especially egregious because whoever made that shit used parts from a different body type so it is even more woobly than the originalif you want to literally burn $15 for it go ahead but I don't think it is worth it, unless you are planning to do a custom that kinda resembles how he looks in the Boujack movie but you will also need to cannibalize someone else's arms
>>10744505How does the sword look on armored trunks?
>>10744730he does not even have gripping hands to hold it
>>10744530no. why are you delusional? you think they're making more or something? they're all made at once.
I know it's a troll, but have bandai ever changed anything on a re-issue? I seem to remember something about sroe eyes, but I got 4 copies from both first release and re-release and they are all identical.chances they'll do something about the lipstick on piccolo in march?>>10744379>Why do we have so many Friezas? Why was Goku black and Brolly multiple times with minor color tweaks?There's a big difference between these and the new buffku. All of those were originally p-bandai, meaning a straight re-issue was not possible (it's against policy to reissue webshop exclusives).We got event exclusives and alt regular releases, or in frieza's case the first was Super and the second was Namek.I can't see buffku getting any kind of re-color. it's a standard release, so it'll be straight up re-issued.
>>10744948My first SROE was pretty much perfect, but I got another from the 3/4th release and his eyes are fucked, basically a chameleon.
Why is everyone still ordering from amiami when it is still taking them over a month to ship out orders with no end to the delays in sight??Wouldn't HLJ or HobbySearch be a better option for everyone now?
>>10745008Maybe I'm not an impatient fuck and can afford to wait a few weeks for my figures to arrive. Also despite delays Amiami still offers the cheapest shipping compared to the other major stores.
>>10744948Just use some alcohol/paint thinner and clean it off. Takes less than 2min work.
I've been checking all night in case Gohan would pop back in stock on Amiami like all figuarts tend to do but he's never been in stock other than the literal single second when he was up the first time. This is pretty fucking stupid.
So he's actually the same height as the others, it's just the short neck that makes him look smaller Kind of prefer the necks on Awakening and Buff over Full Power and SS2 though, those look too long and skinny and the head sits high on them
>>10745075short neck also fits better for this aestheticsince the idea is that his trapezius is very prominent and therefore it leaves less of the neck exposed.
>>10745008The last order I had took them like three or four days to ship out after I paid. Nothing outrageous. I don't get why people are saying it's taking them weeks to even ship an order out. Are you seriously using EMS when DHl costs only a few dollars more?
>>10745055Like I said. This one feels like the worse one so far. There was never a chance.
>>10745095I'm using airmail because it's still available to my country. They say it should ship by the end of the year.
>>10745129Well that's what you get for using poormans shipping.
>>10744536>>10744538>>10744539>>10744548>>10744553>>10744574>>10744600>>10745055>>10745118I keep telling you guys you should try nin-nin. He was up for a solid 5 minutes and cheaper than amiami. They list it before it goes up and offer e-mail notifications so there is no excuse for missing thr PO.
>>10745134I just ordered from BBTS because I can't be bothered to give a shit anymore.
>>10745130nta, but 100% not a shipping issue. It's a store issue.I use airmail at every JP store and they ship the day after payment if it's in stock. Then it gets delivered here within a week.Stay mad for being forced to use expensive shipping, burger.
>>10745139DHL costs literally like $3-$4 more. I'm not poor enough that $3-$4 matters to me. But hey, if you need to penny oinch to enjoy this hobby, you do you.
Is the chest for new Goku fucked up or not. Some pics it looks fine other picks it looks like a sports bra. Is it a QC issue or is it a problem for all the Buffkus.
>>10745008Anon, they're still going through that warehouse move.
>>10745164Noticeable in all but the shittiest of lighting, from what I've seen so far.
every site has been putting first form Cell on big discount. 2nd form is guaranteed to be PBandai.
>>10745172I think that was going to happen regardless of whether 1st form did well or not.
>>10745171You can see it here in better lighting. Disappointing for sure. I don’t know how they fuck this up. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=N4vY1O3AR7E&pp=ygUUc3NqIGdva3Ugc2ggZmlndWFydHM%3D
>>10745164it is fucked upthe question is whether or not it's really noticeable, or if it's on par with otherdiscolorations
>>10745134If they ever decide to ship my buzzmod Lum, maybe I'll place another order with them.
>>10745195I preferred hoe the Kamehameha didn't peg into the hand originally. Seems like a waste of a hand just to dedicate it to the one attack.
Seems like there's a bit of drop down to get the back range.
>>10745405We've really come full circle. They really like those assplates I guess.
>>10745418toriyama personally stepped in to oversee the sculpting of gokus ass cheeks
>>10745405I really miss 2.0 hips...
>>10743997>>10744038>>10744055>>10744058>>10744098Lol, lmao, Zozzle
>>10745141Shipping a single figure for me is 2000 yen for airmail Vs for 6000 yen for DHL.Why would i pay 3 times as much for something to arrive a week earlier.
How long before we get my favorite ugly bastard in figure form? 1st form was a let down but this one im hoping has better qc
>>10745624We don't fucking know.
Another chest close up.
>>10745645if its just that one specific chest piece that looks off i'm autistic enough to repaint that part
>>10745651I'll wait for the re-issue or variant.
>>10745075Judging a figure by pictures is tough. you can make certain figures like great, or shit depending on how you pose, use lighting, etc. In this pic Full Power Goku objectively looks the best for example. we know thats pretty much the worst Goku.Most of the pictures where the new Goku looks good, he is in poses where the lack of a neck isn't as noticeable.
>>10745781>reissueWont look different
>>10745784>In this pic Full Power Goku objectively looks the bestNah.
>>10745645literally unbelievable. Are they fucking blind. how do you not fix that
>>10745405>>10745075>>10744277>>10744271>>10744062>>10745645Reminds me of the Majin Vegeta release, where his abdomen and crotch were obvious different blues than his upper torso and legs. It was obvious in pictures and it was just as obvious in real life. Anyone here coping trying to say "oh it won't be that bad in person". You're only deluding yourselves if you think otherwise. This is on par with the 1.0 Piccolo and Gohan that looked like they were wearing unitards because they couldn't match the color with the legs.
>>10745836Still didnt buy it, I just keep it real. But hold on to that retarded hope if you must.
>>10745821>Are they fucking blind"Hit the trees till we look like Vietnamese people" - t. Marshall mathers
>>10745837I've literally never noticed this.
>>10745837>Majin Vegeta release, where his abdomen and crotch were obvious different blues than his upper torso and legs.Never noticed this, but to be fair, that was the least of my worries with that figurehn22w.
>>10745172this dude was one of the biggest recent flops. I've seen him go on clearence multiple times now since he came out. 2nd form was always going to be p-bandai. the real worry is if perfect cell is p-bandai(that is if hes even worth getting in the first place since he will probably be small as fucking shit again)
Welp, thank god I preordered on BBTS so I could cancel it with ease, there's no way I could live with that egregious difference in skintone
>>10745437I don't.Outward motion will always trump superfluous backward motion.
The overreaction to Goku’s chest has to be the funniest thing in the history of this line. Crazy thing is the people who actually own the figure don’t have a problem with it.
>>10746269Can't badmouth their sponsors.
New Goku looks pretty good
>>10746269sorry that people can have standards
>>10746269I'm going to get him, see if it irks me.If it does, I'm gonna think of ways to deal with it. If it doesn't, I'm not going to waste any more time worrying about it and instead focus on how great of a figure it otherwise is.
Is the chest color error in every ssj goku rn? I feel bad and doubting on whether I keep the preorder or cancel and wait for it to be fixed
>>10746476>Is the chest color error in every ssj goku rn?Yes, it's in how he was produced.It won't be fixed.
>>10746476Im in the same boat undecided whether to cancel, althought it isnt to wait for a fix since its unlikely that will happen. It just looks so good aside from the chest and I dont wamma regret missing out on an otherwise great figure. Im lucky that the gaps and neck dont bother me in the slightest at least
>>10746476>>10746483>>10746511isn't it possible to just disassemble the figure, grab the chest and put a light coating of spray paint on it to match the rest better?
>>10746511Funny. For me, the skin doesn't bother me as much as the neck & ill-fitting hair pieces.That pic really blows >>10743350Hate how the hairline looks. For hairlines like this, they should've sculpted & molded it like Vegeta, with the head & hair in one solid piece.
>>10746518Most of the burgers here are already prone to ham-handing their figures just by posing alone. You expect them to DIY & fix shit? Imagine the horror.
>>10746534Not saying they should, just that it might be an option.
>>10746483Please let me cope, please let me believe they will fix it
>>10746269 Theres also the nonexistant neck, the fact that he's shorter, and the super saiyan wig.
>>10746534Im not burger so diy should be on the table without ending in me somehow accidentally shooting my dog
>>10746575>Theres also the nonexistant neckintentional. that's the effect of more prominent trapezius>the fact that he's shortertrue, but hardly a factor>the super saiyan wigyeah that head/hair option has always looked shit. even more sobut also imagine not picking the classic ss1 hair look
>>10745075>>10745645I like that beefku, more dragon ball toys should be that meaty and I don't really mind the chest color, it's due to different plastics and can't be helped.
LOL! Why so quiet all of the sudden?Here, have at it, another in-depth review of Beef-kun!>https://shishioh.info/SHF_SUPER_SAIYAN_SON_GOKU_LEGENDARY_SS.php
>>10746863He looks great here. Glad I bought 2 Gonna need at least 2 of the faces/hair pieces on display.Hope they start shipping soon.
>>10746863Shitposters probably asleep
>>10746863>LOL! Why so quiet all of the sudden?Americans asleep, others waking up or at school/work? Jeez, not everyone's a neet like you.
>>10746863Honestly, I think people stopped reacting and the shit poster got bored. Shf thread is dead as well. 90% of posts are either people shitting on new figures or defending them. You only see a lot of activity here when there's arguments/drama.Just wait until metal cooler drops. It's going to be an absolute shit storm with trolls calling it trash and anyone defending it being called a shill coping because they spent so much money.^Screenshot this^
>>10746954>Just wait until metal cooler drops. It's going to be an absolute shit storm with trolls calling it trash and anyone defending it being called a shill coping because they spent so much money.that's going to happen no matter how much it costsi got it, but i still think it's going to be a mess. it's overpriced and liable to be a fingerprint magnet
>>10746960no matter how good it is*
With all the QC issues over at Bandai lately, Metal Cooler might actually just end up teal just by sheer manufacturing error at this point.
ssb kiaoken had a similar issue where the chest was slightly different color blue and less sparkles blame the kids in the vietnam factory lol
>>10746977don't really like the shading
The hair seam/gap looks a lot less noticeable on recent pictures.
>>10746518It looks like the issue isn't the color but the fact they probably used two different plastic with two different light reflection properties. Applying a topcoat on the figure would probably fix the issue.
>>10746984https://twitter.com/yuiemajiko/status/1727671045614891318I'm gonna cooom when I get him.
I'm so mad. This Goku looks so good. Basically the best 1/12 Goku in years. They were THIS close to doing it right, and then they fuck up on something as basic as color matching for an unpainted chest piece surrounded by unpainted chest and arm pieces.Fucking hell.
>>10746987We'll have to see when someone here gets their hands on him. I hope someone will fuck around a bit and find an easy way to resolve this issue. I want to like this guy. Like 90% of him is good.
So since it has the more sandy yellowish skin tone, the heads won't fit on other Goku bodies (except SS2 and the con exclusive Warrior Awakening), right?
>>10746990This figure is fucking sexy.
>>10746999might match his chest though lol
https://youtu.be/we-FYllVVAcHe looks so good.
>>10747059So he theorizes it's camera fuckery with the torso, of auto color adjusting and shit.I thought the torso and abs were the same plastics, but they're different apparently.
When is amiami gonna send out paymemt requests for Goku?
>>10747077They'll delay it a week every time you ask.
I personally think the chest thing isn’t as big of a deal as people are making it out to be. While it’s certainly worrisome, it’s a minor blemish on a great looking figure.
>>10747076Well, he says it's to do with different materials. He doesn't deny there's differences, but it isn't in the color, but in the way the materials catch the light.The pectoral piece being hard plastic while others are softer? Not sure what to think of that. I hope SHF doesn't go too hog wild on their rubber pieces.
>>10747091Honestly, if a quick topcoat fixes it easily... Fuck bandai for cheapening out on that.
People overreacted to Buffkus chest. He looks fine. I’m more upset over the hair pieces.
>>10747094No idea if it will. The other pieces aren't matte.Will need someone to get their hands on it and really give an in depth analysis on what exactly is different. A topcoat might do it.>>10747096Weirdly, I don't feel like the alt headpieces look that bad in recent pics and videos. Not nearly as bad as the first ones. Not sure why that is. The gap is definitely still present, but the first pics had like a whole slot in between the head and hair.
>>10747096>I’m more upset over the hair pieces.The ones showing gaps I'll never use anyways. Chest will always be in view.
>>10747077Was gonna ask the same rhing. They've been silent.
>>10746863Really love the sculpt. I’d like Saiyan Saga Kaio Kenx3 Goku with this body.
re: Goku hair piecesI'm surprised they didn't go with that double peg thing that they do for a lot of other figures lately where it connects at the top of the face and into the hair for the back of the head piece.
>>10741232>>10741252Thisat best he can point out objective flaws on stuff when everyone else seems blinded by the hype of a new release, but he rarely knows anything about a figure beyond the fact it's a piece of plastict. watches his shit regularly
>>10747059Man, his faces and the sculpting and painting of his pants are top tier.I hope it becomes the basis/standard for newer gi Goku figures.
After the shock of the shitty chest colour has died down im glad i didnt panic cancel. I think he otherwise looks great and I'd be disappointed missing out on him. Even though I'm happy with him so far, this level of lackluster care for colours is unacceptable at these price points. I'll have to sort something out with a coat or repaint? IDK, I'll have to see if it looks better in hand, not that I think it will. At this point I'm just glad there don't seem to be any qc issues with articulation or the figure falling apart lol
>>10747193I'd wait a bit for someone to get him in hand and ascertain what really is the big issue. So far, it doesn't seem like a color thing, but a finish thing. It's hard plastic, whereas the abs, for example, are soft plastic, so they catch and reflect light differently.
chest is a different plastic, and its shinier.you might be able to make it matte but if the color is wrong from the start its going to be hard to save it.i am going to shine down mine when it arrives.
Oh god I'm dying.
>>10747325goku but retarded
>>10747325goku but based
Anyone got this Vegeta?
>>10747376No, I got the original.
>>10747401Is the body the same as the this version?
>>10747325haha. that's the fucked up face version as well lol
>>10747407Yes. Every Vegeta we've gotten since the 2016 SS mold has been a complete re-use of that body except for Majin, SS4 and great ape(obviously).
>>10747469Oh... I'll keep waiting to buy a new Vegeta then.
>>10747325Well... that ruins a few of my plans.
>>10747325Was SROE eyes always that far apart? That face didn’t age well.
>>10747572Mine doesn't have that issue, so I'm assuming there was a fix for it somewhere down the line.
>>10747572its the rerelease they gave him prey eyes
>>10747572Yeah it’s from a reissue. This is why it’s pretty funny that people assume a buff Goku reissue means fixing issues. If anything you should fear it’s not getting worse.
>>10747572>>10747582>>10747590>>10747594I-I... I haven't opened my SroE Goku from this year yet...Will he have downs syndrome?
>>10747599Hmmmm good question. I got mine the first year it came out. You don't have to open the packaging in order to find out though...
>>10747599its important that you love and care for him either way and always remember it wasnt your fault that one time you had too many wines anon
>>10747611>>10747625So I checked.I got a little retard after all.
I really, really like the way they painted the hair on the new SS Goku.Please Bandai keep doing it that way.
>>10747638I'm so sorry, anon.
>>10747670It's fine. I don't really want to use that face anyway. It doesn't upset me as much as the red splotch on the whites of my first form Frieza's eyes does.Still, funny how this issue went under the radar without people screaming bloody murder, but every small little thing for recent releases get torn to shreds instantly.
>>10747679Because we're fed up with Bandai always fucking up one thing away from perfection.
>>10747694It's not even perfection. It's just them giving enough of a shit to make a decent product. QC is one thing, where I can accept that paint scuff or splotches or the odd crooked paint application are going to happen with mass-produced items. But to have to pre-order half a year in advance for them to fuck the stupidest shit up as factory errors that will affect the entire production is just fucking lame. And it just keeps happening more and more, while prices keep going up and up.
>>10747679im almost jealous i dont have a goku with the hammerhead eyes now its kinda cute
>>10747325So I'm guessing the super hero head won't work either, wonder if that's the case for ui goku head
>>10748006All 2.0 heads will look bad. Better off getting the latest "3.0" Demoniacal Fit Goku and seeing if that works
>>10747136Isn't it out today? Weird I have gotten nothing from them
Just got big daddy Raditz in, instantly an easy top 5 figures contender for me
>amiami says Goku is in stock on order page>but the item page for Goku is gone>no payment requestWhat did they mean by this?
>>10748344It means I ate your order.
>>10748344Just got my payment request. They're sending them out now.
How do you guys dust your figures? I just use a cloth but I can't get into the little nooks and crannies like in the hair
>>10748543I used compressed air you use to clean electronics. If the dust is caked on then I rinse the figure in water. That usually cleans everything up.
>>10748543Soft make-up brush
>>10748543I just use a make up brush. It's very effective and keeps my figures clean.
>>10748543A soft make up brush.I wish I knew how to best clean like the plastic trays, though. It doesn't happen often, but when they get dusty, it's hell to remove.
Fuck yeah amiami less gooo.
>>10748579Me seething and coping about the fact that we'll see a Full Power Frieza soon that will probably look amazing, so the only Frieza forms that are shit or outdated and will look out of places are golden and regular Final Form respectively, when his slender Final Form is my favorite of his forms.
>>10748318Cute, hope you enjoy him
>>10748543>>10748572Ye makeup brush for the figgies, swiffer duster for the shelf I’m leaving em on. A micro fiber cloth would be amazing
>>10748318Ugh, I fucked up and forgot to order him. I thought I did amongst the dozens of other pre-orders I have open, but he slipped through the cracks somehow.
>>10747325Depends on the head, looks great with dlc head.
>>10748670I'd say it still looks considerably too small.But that's not surprising to be honest. This is a super bulky Goku.I just hope we get a new Goku built off this new SS Goku's basis. The pants, the heads, the hair all look so good.
>>10748670Because they posed it correctly hiding the (now) longneck.Head adds even more color fuckery.
>>10748670As much as I want to like this it clearly looks too big on the sroe body and the base looks to small on the buffku body.Shame.
Hear me out.Zombie Goku.Being patches of blue, the different colors wouldn't even matter!
>>10748670honestly, I don't think the SS head is too bad on the SRoE body. It's clearly not ideal, but it looks better than expected.So, uh, since people here hate the idea of calling it "3.0", what *would* we call a new Base Goku mold? Because I definitely want one now. With all of the detail of this Legendary Super Saiyan Goku, minus the battle damage, of course. And a bit less buff.
>>10748670The SS head might look better on one of those bulkier third party bodies based on SH Gohan. Though not sure what the peg is like on the various figures.
>>10748670Jesus fucking christ how has this place gone so long without an upgrade like that new Goku. Color matching be damned, that sculpt is simply superior and people buying into the old mold for years should feel bad,
>>10748709FPSS now looks even shittier by comparison. As if that's possible.
>>10748670The color combination on the left almost makes me think of the good ol' irwin toys SS Goku.
>>10748715OH so the new chest color fuckery is an homage to this toy!! We figured it out!!
>>10748759>>10748762the neck is killing me
>>10748762The new hair is Beast Gohan level ridiculous. I already thought the original SS/awakening hair was too big, and it dwarfs that. I have too many Goku's as is and he isn't even in my top 10 favorite characters, so this is a super easy pass even without the QC issues.
>>10748762Can you put the new Goku faceplates on the old Goku hair/head? Or would you have to do a full headswap?
>>10748762The new one looks so much better, it's ridiculous.
>>10747376I will but need to wait 6 months after release
There's still one last Goku they need to do.Probably closer towards the Awakening Ver. aesthetic.
>>10748830Boy, I sure can't wait to get:>Intact gi Base Goku>Slightly torn gi Goku>Torn off gi but intact undershirt Goku>Torn off gi and half-torn undershirt Goku>SS3 Goku>SSG Goku>SSB Goku>Omen Goku>MUI GokuAll over again, but this time the "3.0" (I know they're not that, but just shorthand for "updated") versions.
>>10748835We also still need that barefoot goku
I really, really like how good the likeness on the DB Figuarts have gotten. QC issues notwithstanding, the faces on this new SS Goku and the Boy From the Future Trunks are top-tier.
>>10747407No. The plastic used in that $35 dollar one is lower quality and feels cheaper. At least compared to the original SSB figure from 2019.
>>10748835We need a new intact gi base Goku. Give him the no kanji gi to differentiate from SROE if they still want to keep releasing that.
>>10748835I want late DB, early DBZ turtle kanji Goku
>>10749010Galactic Patrol Goku
>>10748835there's more!>Base Goku>Kaioken Goku>SSJ1 full power goku>SSJ2 Goku>SSJ3 Goku>kid goku>kid goku GT>SSJ4 Goku>SSJGod Goku>SSJBlue Goku>SSJBlue Kaioken Goku>UI Sign Goku>UI Goku
>>10749098I'd argue SS4 Goku is already pretty on par with the new SS Goku.Same for GT Goku.But the other ones? Definitely.But god, I'm still yearning for the day I get a base Goku head and SS2 Goku head with the same level of detail and accuracy as this new SS Goku head.With all of them being swappable.
I want Yardrat Goku.
>>10748715Look at this shit. We are spoiled now. 10 year old me wouldn't believe the figures we are getting now.
>>10748772look at Goku during his fight with Frieza and you'll see how big his hair was. This is probably the most accurate Goku we've ever gotten.
>>10749152So true, lmao.That's who I keep trying to excite with these figures. That 10 year old me that would've gone absolutely ballistic for these figures.My favorite figure back then was that movie line Final Form Cooler. Which honestly wasn't awful at all for the time, but still can't compare to modern figures at all.And yes, the SHF Final Form Cooler is my favorite figure in the line now.
>>10749162I had this and Piccolo. These figures actually had blood which blew my mind back then.
>>10749119Give adult GT Goku and Goku Xeno
base hair kelfa and boobs parts shipping
>>10749258When are we a replacement crotch and legs for Kefla? That's the real issue with her.
>>10748605He is kino. Always loved his design for some reason
seems like the neck mod is easy to do
>>10749328Guy having fun with his Chadler and Chadku.(I'm now sad that the Final Form Cooler didn't come with one more masked face where he has the maniacal asymmetrical red eyes.
It's unironically insane to me how good he looks.
>>10749266just give us a whole new kefla at this point lol
>>10743467>>10748006I uhh..I don't think you wanna try that.
>>10749359They should give us final battle Kefla or whatever they want to call it with battle damage and buffed like the Jiren figure. Throw in a base head for the previous figure.
>>10748670I like how he looks on the right despite skin tone, im coping acceptably about the chest and haven't killed my preorder yet
>>10749387agreed hate the twig proportions of fhe current one, only reason im not ever gonna get this versionthose of you who're getting your boob kits i do hooe you enjoy them though
>>10749360I like how he looks with ui
>>10749387>>10749398I wouldn't mind a new Kefla. I just absolutely fucking hate that the legs are SHIT.Like they're neither 1.0 nor 2.0. They're something worse.
>>10749408Well Caulifla and Kale are on the survey so they're thinking about those two. Maybe Kefla will get the battle damage version along them. They've got enough for a small ToP push with Roshi also.
>>10749402iwas gonna say, he dont look all that off
>>10749423kinda surprised we havent got a toppo desuim not interested in him at all but i can definitely see people getting him. especially if its his GoD form so people can pose him with vegeta
>>10749434they're gonna wait to do Vegeta's blue evolution form before they do that which I don't see happening for a long time, they had years to do it but haven't done one for whatever reason.
Man, I'm really craving--->Goku "3.0">SS4 Gogeta>Janemba>Kid Buu>2.0 Final Form Frieza

>>10749402fucking bafffling to me how they even hired an artist that fucking shitty for dragon ball.
>>10749360it can technically work but the shitty face sculpt doesn't fit with the frest of the body.
>>10749763Personally hand-picked by Toriyama, even Toyotaro used to copy his style better than he does now but you can tell everything's taken a nosedive in art and design since Toriyama decided to completely retire from picking up a pencil
>>10749770>Toyotaro used to copy his style better than he does now That's because in the past Toriyama came in to fix his shitty drawings/he literally just traced toriyama's drawings. MUI toyotaro version is a bad omen. The shitty manga barely has any fucking merch and I hope it fucking stays that way forever.
had to pop in here just to say new Buffku is the best dbz figuarts of all time my god
>>10749838The likeness and dynamism of the sculpt is something else.
>everybody excited as fuck for the new gorilla goku figuartswhat gives? I really don't see the appeal, on the other hand I just got the DF Martial Artist and holy shit the 3.0 body is amazing for Goku, I got blown awaywhen the fuck is Vegeta gonna get the 3.0 treatment?
>>10749876Least Gohan matches the chest lol
>>10749956>shilling bootleg figures. Please leave
>>10749956>what gives?It's good.>bootleg babbleShut up.
I was wondering about how buff this new Goku is next to Super Saiyan 4. Looks like they're about the same.
>>10749956You're asking us why we're hyped for one of the most iconic looks for Goku with some of the best engineering and sculpt (for the faces and the clothes both) that the DB SHF line has ever seen? That also comes with 2 extra hair fringe pieces and a kamehameha effect?
>>10749981The chad SS4 vs the... uh, chad SS1?this isn't how that's supposed to go.
>>10749981Wow, it really is similar. Which is funny, because while SS4 looks strong, I wouldn't exactly consider him hyper buff like the SS1 version.
>>10749956>when the fuck is Vegeta gonna get the 3.0 treatmentVegeta SSJ4 figure already did but Kong is also doing one but its the xeno outfit
>>10749956>when the fuck is Vegeta gonna get the 3.0 treatment?Both Goku and Vegeta need a new 3.0 body. Like, intact gi/suit and all that.
>>10749956Ssj 1.5 vegeta 3.0 body from when he fought cell when
>>10749956nice try marko
The new Goku looks so good it’s unreal. I think the new Gohan looks really good too. I’m excited about the future of this line.
>>10748835>Intact gi Base Goku>Slightly torn gi Goku>Torn off gi but intact undershirt Goku>Torn off gi and half-torn undershirt GokuYes unironically.
>>10750050>I’m excited about the future of this line.Not excited for the soft chest parts tho.
>>10750071NTA but I'm apprehensive there too. I just hope it doesn't degrade.The type of soft plastic/rubber I hate most is that which covers joints like a sleeves, because the joints will easily just end up eating it up.But I also don't know if I care for rubber gi parts, even if they don't touch joints directly. Beast Gohan has shown that the gain from it is negligible, if that set up isn't outright inferior to the harder plastic alternative altogether.
>>10750050I would be excited if they stopped ignoring the Buu Saga.

>>10750168Think we're not getting bandit Yamcha unless his vehicle gets as many votes too, what with them being on every survey together.They really want to do another Bulma+Bike thing.Who's "the eldest"? Guru?
>>10750124Kid Buu WHEEEEEEEEEN
>>10750168>CoolaWE'RE STILL IN THIS BROSOr should I be sad that Coola is still on the list?
>>10750177yeah. I just searched it up. 最長老 is Guru. They are determined to make every last character from the Namek saga.
>>10750186Would probably be Porunga-priced too unless they downsize him.There no big prizefig or something to sub?Also, I was today years old when I learned Dende was voiced by Hirano Aya.. Haruhi... I can't recover from this.
Finally got my Burori. Looks badass with his bro full power. Still debating if I should get the superhero one. I can't wait to pose buffku fighting all the bad guys.
>>10750207Based. These two are really good.Super Hero Broly's... *ok*. If you want your Wrath as Wrath or SS, he works to just have a base version.Even if he is mostly a lazy reuse that kept the Wrath legs when he should've had custom legs.
>>10750168So nothing new.
>>10750168>Bread (GT)>Trunks (GT)we literally saw these on display...
>>10750216It’s the exact same survey they’ve done for many months now. They only take shit out once it’s up for po.
>>10750216Doesn't mean much when you're Bandai.Display 20 things, only release 1.
>>10750209I would get him no questions asked if he had this face and you know Cheelai was real.
>>10750177Guru was a dub name. He was just called the Grand Elder in every version that wasn't made by retarded Texans. But it seemed like they mixed both names for the survey.
>>10750168If I had to pick just 5 since that's usually the survey limit:23rd Budokai GokuJacoCoolaFull Power FreezaCell Second Form

>>10749294nice effect! Where did you got that? Also yeah, I love Raditz design too, he's just too cool. Also I love the Frieza army armor
>>10750168Give me Green Ganondorf! Aka Bojack!
>>10750325That horse from Horsin' Around? I love that show!

>>10750325Only interested in Bojack if they do Zangya as well. Maybe Blue Crono, too.
>>10750168I feel a lot of those don't need to be on that list since Bandai knows for sure they can make the and safely make their money back on salesI mean, if you're doing Cui, of all characters, do you really need to keep getting feedback on stuff like Full Power Frieza or any Vegeta and Goku variant, really?Then there's stuff that's been on the list for years now even though there's been zero news for the subline like all the DB stuff. Just weird Personally I'd choose >Chi-chi TenkaichiWe need a version of adult Chi-Chi to pair with adult Goku and I'd rather it be the Tenkaichi version over the housewife version>tambourineToriyama's demons, monsters, animals, etc are really cool and Tamborine fits in that group. It would be really cool to have a neat demon design like him on the shelf>RoshiI missed out on DB Roshi but even if I had him, I'd be saddened by his scale compared to Z characters. The Super version seems like it would fit better. Although Max Power Roshi would be cooler than the skinny version >slugNamekians are really cool even though in canon, Piccolo and Nail are the only ones that fight. But Nail just jobs to Frieza real quick, so I'd rather have Slug. Bonus points for being a villain which is cool and Bandai usually goes all-out on the villain figures My final pick isn't on the list and sadly the chances of him getting an updated figure are slim but I'd really like a new Z Broly. The old one is still in exclusive recolor hell and goes for crazy prices, especially considering how he looks kind of ridiculous now when compared to Super Broly figures. A new version of him would be great
>>10750490gohan and trunks in their oufits from that Boujack movie would be dope as fuck
>>10750478I'm shocked no third party company has tried to make a 2.0/3.0 Z Broly t b h. He's like the teenage angstkino that fits perfectly for bootleg companies.
>>10750276Its from the DF bootleg Super Saiyan 3 Vegeta, (royal blood i think its called) kept the effect and sold the figure without it
>>10750520Gohan with the Bojack movie look would be top-tier. I always liked that look a lot.
>>10750544DF was going to make on and then gave up like most of their renders/projects
>>10750544Supposedly Kong/BeastDeities is going to make a SSJ4 version along with Cumber, no idea if they or any will do OG broly
>>10750168got a link?
>>10750615He come to town.
>>10750615you need japanese IP to access ithttps://p-bandai.jp/enquete/1000013945/
>>10750490I doubt they would. She's a movie grunt and doesn't have a very coomer friendly design. The hair would also be a pain in the ass. I can see her being Kefla 2.0.
