NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOI WAITED TO LONG AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
>>8981552That new ssj1 is so damn ugly
>>8981558They closed POs a few days ago.
>>8981564so it will sell again for 250 euros?
>>8981565No. Tamashii France, Archonia, etc still have him
>>8981558everybody is fear buying this Goku, some are probably betting it'll pre sell out so they can gouge their tardy fellow collectors, it sucks, but i hope it cools off before release(maybe bandai shouldn't have waited 3 years, but it paid off i guess)
>>8981581That's sexy, hope the Vietcong dont soften and round the face.
>>8981581 “It’ll be out when it’s out”, and we like that, “it’ll be out when it’s out”. Great work ethic, so good.
Forgot to defend myself last thread, but I wasn't really coping about Gohan, I assure you. He definitely looks better than his dad as a kid, for one thing. I wish I grabbed two because I can't decide if I want the mullet or bowlcut. It would have been cool to have mullet for a Saiyan arc display and bowlcut for Namek, but oh well. I never bought duplicate SHF until recently with Lunch and SS3 pre-orders.
>>8981631>He definitely looks better than his dad as a kidAbsolutely, he looks way better than Kid Goku
>>8981631Bowl cut all the way.
>>8981581i hope Regular Ass Vegeta isn't an exclusive this time
>>8981581something's off about this Vegeta's face. these figuarts have been slipping in quality lately.
>>8981717Its mostly those two Gokus (moreso the SS1) and that Vegeta's faces look kinda weird. People thought Tien looked odd too in the initial shots, but he looked better later on.Most of the rest have still been fine.
>>8981558What website is this?
>>8981740mythfactory or some shit
Hope those mexicans deliver this time
Look what arrived! Now I need to figure out how to build the fucking things!!>>8981558Still available directly from Tamashii France:https://tamashiinations.fr/en/preorders/1084-dragon-ball-z-super-saiyan-3-son-goku-shfiguarts-4549660149484.html
>>8981783You might have better success just posting your own personal blog. I don't think as many people care about your shelves as you think. I mean, be sure to show us the finished set up, but we don't need the play by play of you building it. That's just too much.
>>8981804It's too bad he reads "tone it down" as "please post more".Fucking narcissist.
>>8981804Yeah, don't worry. I was only joking.I will post pictures of the final display once its built and Frieza arrives.
I really hope DF release that new goku head. It will look amazing.I wonder if they are doing a full battle damaged kaioken body for it.
>>8981804>>8981827Look at these copelets angry that someone can afford a good collection and a custom made display case. Keep thriving cube anon I enjoy your pictures
>>8981832It's still a 3d render. It won't look like that once sculpted.
>>8981833I actually like the stuff he posts. He's one of the more frequent toy posters in this thread and maybe even the whole board. It's just he gets a little bloggy which I'm sure is in response to the whiney faggots who complain when he posts DB toys in a thread for DB toys. He admitted he was joking around so it's fine. I am definitely interested to see what the final display will look like. I also expanded the display space for my DB stuff and it was a fun morning of building the unit and figuring out how to make it look good. It's still a bit cluttered right now but it's certainly miles better than what I had it.
>>8981851so post yours too, I like seeing DB collections
>>8981856Not him, but heres my collection.
>>8981552As expected SS3 is day "3". If they're just gona climb up the forms kaioken might get skipped. So god, blue, sign, ui and something like awakening or kid Goku for day 8. Hopefully a reveal on the 9th. Or its fucking nothing and they drop a group shot of existing Goku on the last day.
>>8981856Sure. I have Recoome, SSB Goku and Kid Gohan too they're just on my toy table atm. I hope to get Freiza today from DHL. We'll see.
>>8981892Try to mess around with the poses some more. Even if those aren't high end figures you can make them look better with some posing.
>>8981552Is it actually happening SSJ4 bros?
>>8981901 For the past 2 years they've used that day as Piccolo day and revealed King Piccolo and 2.0 Piccolo on that date. They've never done this "counting towards Goku day" before and it seems to be some very intentional hype building. I'd honestly be really surprised if they don't have a reveal on sunday.
>>8981913Probably, he was teased at that convention in november. And after all, he is working on
>>8981908You should look into getting some risers. I wouldn't say this is cluttered, but some of the stuff in the back is hard to see and if you raised up the back stuff I think it'd look a lot better.
>>8981924>he is working onHe most definitely is. I think we'll see the remainder of what they had mentioned and teased back then be revealed either before or by the time SDCC rolls around. So SSJ4, King Kai, Cell and Videl would seem like logical new reveals for the coming months.Maybe they'll give us some new teasers/pages to go through for next year lol. I would assume it's still going to be an online event this year, just like 2020.
>>8981918That's true. Funny how those are both May 9th.
>happy with original Tien and Demoniacal shirt as it gives option to display character in different looks>want articulated ChiaotzuShould I just buy the new one and sell Tien/keep Chiaotzu? Or would that be kind of a dick move?
>>8981948It would only be a dick move if you lie about Chiaotzu being included. You may struggle to sell just the Tien by itself
>>8981948If they know they're not getting Chiaotzu then its fine. Since you're fine with DF stuff I'd imagine they might eventually do a solo Chiaotzu recast. Might even give him some different expressions.
>>8981933is this the guy behind the no Kid Buu figuarts controversy? He has to be stopped.
>>8981964That'd be a great option, especially if you want to do a display of him attached to Nappa's back just before he explodes. Could give him a nice light blue clear/metallic coat.
>>8981976Non-fighters like Bulma have taken slots ahead of fighting characters like Kid Buu for too long. We all bought SSj3 Goku and have been waiting to recreate our favorite fight. Bulma does not fight. Why is she getting multiple figures? Why is she getting an action figure before Kid Buu. If they don't correct this, we will all stop supporting this line and we have many friends who will stop buying too.
>>8981982Oh I see, the non controversy.Please remember to take your meds next time
>>8981941Goku stole the day because he beat King Piccolo on Piccolo day. As always Goku steals everything.
>>8981982>One of the most iconic characters of the franchise from it's inception with multiple designs gets multiple figures>Meme character from the meme arc not prioritized over herI don't see the problem
>>8981982Oh its the autism. Hey lil buddy.
>>8981991She doesn't need an action figure. She can get a statue. She's pushing back actual fighters. Characters who engage in action should get action figures. It's stupid to have this chick ahead of real fighters.
>>8981982Bulma has a fat booty though, that automatically makes her one of the best figures of the year.
Just got a regular Jiren and Bardock...how do I go about fixing their bicep issues? Not having much luck with a hairdryer and pulling it off straight down for Bardock. Do I drip shock oil down through the elbow?
I hope we get more Bulmas and Chi Chis
>>8981994>Real fightersYou know this is a cartoon, right?
I know it's subjective, but has anybody bought these DF heads and found them useful or worth the $22?>>8981997with Bardock and Recoome, I put wd40 in their shoulder/arm joints and after about a week, they didn't creak or resist movement anymore, the other people here say to use silicone shock oil, i don't know where to get that, but it's probably more effective
>>8981987I duno if they have Goku day in universe for that reason but the real life reason for May 9th is this.
>>8981994Bulma was Goku's first fight in the whole series and has punched more people than any main antagonist.
>>8982020This is the bigger reason.
>>8982011Don't put fucking wd40 on your figures kek. What I did with Bardock was pulled off his arms with hot water and drilled out a bit of his floating biceps piece because that's too tight. Not his joints, but the biceps that can come off. Shock oil works as well but I did this before I bought shock oil for Recoome.
>>8981994How could I pose a statue of Bulma slapping JOBrus around?
>>8982041Nobody wants that. Everybody except for virgins like you wants Kid Buu. Is it that hard to understand?
>>8982045Clearly not, since Bandai doesn't think it'll sell well enough to even warrant a figure. Go neck yourself with a bubblegum pink rope.
>>8982011I got them. Can't say i've found a particular use for them yet, but they look nice enough.
I want Kid Buu more than anyone but kek at this spazout on Bulma's 4th release like she didn't need any and that Kid Buu should have replaced her with the Namekian Dragon Ball. Bulma is more popular than 90 percent of DB characters. Whether she's made or not doesn't bring us any closer to Kid Buu because Bandai doesn't want to do him. Although the SS3 release is pretty sus so he might be announced soon... or Janemba and everyone would also like that.
>>8982065>Bandai doesn't want to do him>Literally part of a figuarts poll just 2 months agoWhy don't you guys stop making shit up and just be patient for once?
>>8981926Yup definitely need some risers for sure. I just need to not be lazy and buy some. Maybe when the IRS finally sends me the $1100 they owe me.
>>8981991>bulma>iconicLol she's just some chick. When people think of db, they don't think of her. They think of awesome action and badass characters. Namek Bulma did not need an action figure.
>>8982099>They think of awesome action and badass characters100% this.
>>8981851I'd post stuff more often but I can't think of anything good to post. How many times can you do "random action scene" or "guy just standing there in powerup pose" after all?
>>8982086I should reiterate. Bandai only wants to do figures on their own time. Bandai wants to do figures when they want to do them. They want to do other figures first more and they would probably just find another character to do over Kid Buu if all the "non essential non fighters" weren't made. There's no guarantee doing more fighters leads to a release of who you want because they can release whoever they want whenever they want and Bulma doesn't change that. If they wanted to release Kid Buu as soon as possible then they would have. If Bulma wasn't made they'd just replace her with another DB character or Dodoria in Namek's case kek. Another Goku could take the "slot" too, who knows? Hope that guy likes having a Videl before Kid Buu though.
>>8982099When I think of DB as in the OG my first thought is of Bunny Bulma.
>>8982065>Bulma is more popular than 90 percent of db db characters To who? Coomers? They can buy those over-priced statues. This is an action figure line. They already 2 figures for this bitch. We really need another one?Namek Bulma isn't a top 10 character people remember from that saga. Why is she getting a figure before Namek Vegeta or Namek Krillin? We don't have Full Power Freeza or SSJ Goku from the franchise's most iconic moment. They stinking up this line with crap like Namek Bulma. It's an annoying trend. We have Videl on the way. No Buu Saga Gohan, Vegeta. No SSJ3 Gotenks. No Dabura. Not even the Videl that fought in the tournament. Pigtails school Videl and all her iconic moments like....
>>8982122Seethe, I want every Bulma
>>8982065>Bulma is more popular than 90 percent of DB charactersBulma did nothing in the Namek arc except fly the damn ship and sit on her ass and bitch. Heres a bunch of characters more important to the arc's plot than her that actually fucking did things:>Vegeta>Krillin>Gohan>Dodoria>Zarbon>Freeza (form 2-4)>fucking Nail did more than her and had more lines than her I'm sure>King fucking Kai did more than her and he's living in the fucking underworld doing nothing but yelling at GokuSeriously, fuck this release, it's shit. Especially since it's coming before ACTUAL FUCKING CHARACTERS WHO DID THINGS DURING THIS ARC.
>>8982140Post your proof that more people want literal who's who die in the chapter after they are introduced over a legacy character that has been part of the story since the very first chapter. Go on, I'll wait.
>>8982113They cycle through per saga. Buu got a fair amount of attention in 2018 and early 2019. Now we're seeing more Namek and soon Cell saga figures. They'll get back to Buu eventually.It's not like the pace is slowing down. We had 15 last year and already have 13 releases planned for this year and still 2 months to go.>>8982140Are you just new or something? Where was all this Bulma outrage when she was revealed almost half a year ago lol.
>>8982146Both Bulmas are both still easily available for retail price. They shelf warm because nobody buys them except for coomers.
>>8982146Zarbon and Dodoria were unironically in more chapters on Namek than Bulma was you insufferable fuck.
>>8982164Better to shelfwarm than be unsellable like Who?bon and Who?doria.>>8982167They also do nothing but bully toddlers then die like faggots. Dragon Ball isn't just that one saga, Pedro.
>>8981552So what will the reveal be on the last day?
>>8982099straggot incel alert
>>8982172>Better to shelfwarm than be unsellableYou realize them shelf warming means that they're basically unsellable? Your brain must be rotted away from so much cooming.
>>8982146Logic. Do action figure collectors of an action focused franchise want characters who fought and had iconic moments, or do they want some chick who did nothing for an entire saga? The most notable thing Bulma did in the namek saga was ponder if she should have fucked Goku.
>>8982174Probably SSJ4 Goku.
>>8982174Another Kid Goku recolor
>>8982164In defense of Bulma, almost all DB figures shelf warm for quite some time. To date, I think only Roshi and Goku have both sold out and increased in value.
>>8982177Come up with your own insults faggot.
>>8982174Hopefully SS4 Goku.Probably SS2 Goku or a GT Kid Goku recolor.
>>8982189i hope they make his head bigger
>>8982197cry harder endogamic filthy creature
>>8982057thanks, I already have multiple hairs, so I'd just be buying it for the faces, the silver's got a nice glow to it at least
>>8982189>>8982199With 9 out of 10 comments on instagram expecting SSJ4, the comment section is going to be absolutely relentless if it's not.
>>8981581You know they are going to fuck up the blue color and give us some purple. They pulled the same shit with Majin Vegeta -___-
>>8982216It'll be like the Goku Black drop from a while back. Expectations were high and they didn't deliver. Even if it was just SS2 I don't think people are gonna be all that happy.
>>8982259It's a bit different, they gave us a 12 hour notice for that nor was it any special kind of day in regards to DB. This is leading up for an entire week.
>>8982152They do now because they have a theme going but they still drop characters whenever. When they're ready to do the characters I want is when they'll do them and I'll wait patiently for the day.I won't sit around crying about how unpopular Bulma is to only myself though KEK!
>>8982194DB figures only shelf warm if they're normal releases and so do all normal releases if they get enough stock for a time.
>>8982242Not what he asked.
>>8982259I hope it's Goku's step daughter Videl!
>>8982281>instagram's reaction when
>>8982216It wouldn't be the first time Instamashii hypes something up and it happens to be nothing and then people with expectations lose their shit.Didn't that happen with.. Hit?
>>8981999Adult ChiChi I think wouldnt make for a bad low cost release. She only has 3 designs to her and her first dbz design is easily her best>young adult ChiChi from start of dbz until Buu>older adult ChiChi in yellow from Buu through super>grandma Chichi in pink from GT
>>8982328Tournament and young Adult ChiChi are best ChiChis, and I'd want SHF of them.I'll pass on Buu+ versions.
>>8982325Certainly wouldn't be the first time. But as a counterpoint I will say this is the longest drawn out reveal they've ever done on instagram so it feels like it could be something more interesting. If it ends up being nothing I wouldn't care that much either though, there's so many good releases this year already and am already happy to see Bulma's full pics soon.>>8982328This wouldn't perform at all. If there's going to be any Chi-chi it should be her 23rd Budokai look.
>>8982358Every year people expect SS4 on Goku Day. I want SS4 but I think I want rage more. Super Bardock please.
>>8982259The Goku Black drop seems so tone deaf. It's literally the fucking SDCC except for $35 this time. And still no base form head, like, what the fuck are these idiots doing? I honestly think they just massively overproduced the SDCC version and are repacking it to get rid of the extra's.
>>8982375yes but it's the first Goku day after he said that HE IS WORKING ON
>>8982325I think with Hit it was implied it was a DBS reveal upfront. Most people kinda expected him and like the other anon said they haven't had a drawn out reveal like this Goku Day one.
>>8982428Yeah, between HE IS WORKING ON and pic related I'd say SS4 is a lock for Goku dayHopefully when they show SS2 Goku leading up to it we can get some product shots and preorder info
>>8982442What do you guys think the likelihood of a SSG re-release is?I would have said never ever last month but after SS3 Goku and this Goku day hype it's starting to look more possible
>>8982447None. Unlike SS3, SSG was a pbandai.
>Mothersday for my country is on Goku-dayTournament Couple 2-pack confirmed.
Tournament Chi-Chi has been in the survey and one of the last surviving DB characters there, so i wouldnt be surprised if she is the next female character revealed after Videl and Kefla
>>8982442>SS1>SS2>SS3>REDACTED>SSGSS>SSB>UISS4 Goku has now been confirmed.
>>8982467And by “now” you mean literally 10 months ago.
>>8982109We need more pics like your Jiren pic where its just a good chuckle rather than anything serious. Simple fun with toys.
>>8982442Why did Goku's head shrink as he got older?
>>8982473Confirmed as the next release. We knew it was coming for a while, but never had a date.
>>8982481You realize that picture you replied to is also 5 months old?
>>8982478He's a cartoon.
>>8982483You realize that we are returning to (half)monke for Goku day?
>>8982498Yes, I'd say it's highly likely. Just saying all the stuff that hints at it is old news.
>>8982447As >>8982453 said a low to none chance. I am betting they will do an SSG with the UI -sign- body, to complete the Broly movie form at some point.
>>8981856Here's part of mine.
#GokuDay #SHFGokuDayMy Complete Collection Video youtu.be/-Ad_MIPCNC0Follow me: https://www.instagram.com/gary_garzon/
I don't care about GT and I always thought SS4 looked bad, so cool for all the guys who've been waiting for me, but SS4 Goku doesn't interest me. The only character I might go for a SS4 figuarts of is Broly, he's the only character stupid enough to make that form work.
>>8982547You really have zero shame don't you shill?
>>8982550Me neither but it's been 10 years and honestly the GT fags deserve a figure by now.
>>8982442Yeah, SSJ4 is 100% gonna be announced for Goku Day. They've been teasing it for so long
>>8982550I want both SSJ4 Goku and monke Broly
>>8982616If it's SS2 I'm gonna be so disappointed
>They announce Great Ape Kid Goku
>>8982683Actually kinda want this. A generic great ape would be pretty cool to have compared to Vegeta who's rather specific to that scene.
>>8982547You are a cool dude. You have a big collection, a very nice display, and you are real good at poses! :3
>>8982708That actually looks a lot better than the Goku imo. But man that galick gun pose looks WEAK.
>>8982708do they have the same people working on this as the figuarts? I like this Vegeta base face more than the one we're getting
>>8981965>>8981982>Muh kid BuuFucking pedo
>>8982708Fuck, limited articulation aside, this looks good. Preordered
Will we ever get Heroes figs at some point?
>>8982769definitely. nobody wants them so they'll make them.
Guys, don't get your hopes up too high. If it's SS4 Goku, that's cool.But set your expectations low, like a bare feet Goku or a SS2 Goku announcement.
>>8982783>bare feet GokuThat would be even better.
>>8982769The queston is if they'll start with a stupid heroes outfit Goku or go with a Heroes OC. The thing is most Heroes OCs (unless you count Mira and Towa as Heroes) tend to have a short lifespan before they're swapped out for the next ridiculous villain.
>>8982783It’s got to be SS4 or GT Kid Goku.SS2 is too similar to the upcoming SS Goku. They want people to buy both so they’ll be spaced out by a good amount of time. ( unless they make SS2 Goku an Event exclusive)
>>8982790>stupid heroes outfitSSJ4 xeno goku is unironically one of the best designs for goku.
>>8982823The SS2 part is true, they prob don't wanna touch that til SS is out which isn't even that far at this point. GT Goku would be the worst of the options as its GT and not the Goku figure that people actually want from it, SS4. After the whole Goku Black reveal thing I wouldn't be surprised if it was a Sign Goku regular release or something.
>>8982825I'm gonna agree to this.The source material is garbage, but that design is pretty based.
>>8982823>unless they make SS2 Goku an Event exclusiveCan't see that happening and agree on the spacing out part.I honestly feel like SSJ4 is almost guaranteed, writing's been on the wall for close a year now.
>>8982823GT Kid Goku would cause riots.
>>8982442Japan was able to get the ui sign Goku exclusive like we did right? I personally would've had him over awakening or one of the kid Goku in that display. If they didn't feel comfortable putting an event figure there then its a sign they should've made it more available.
For the first time with this line, I'm hit by a QC issue. As soon as I take Frieza out of the package, his left leg falls off. Nothing actually seems to be broken, but it keeps happening regardless of how gentle I am with him. What should I do?
>>8982878QC issues started since the release of Ginyu.
>>8982883They started with Jiren. Have rarely heard about issues with Ginyu.
>>8982878If it appears to be too loose in the leg socket you can add clear floor polish to the joint, but if it's bad enough to fall right out you may want a small piece of paper or saran wrap.

>>8982964What isn't a mistake, Grandpa?
Where are all the dislikes for this garbage figure?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alZHkbGaRh0
>>8982998I think it looks fine. Definitely a step up from Goku.
>>8982969why are figuarts fans always bullying fans of other figure lines
>>8982964Dragonball is better than any Ghibli movie.
>>8982923Use Kiki, some kid makes it in a third world country.
>>8982534I will never understand why people do mirrors in the back. looks bad man
>>8983200Self reflect on poor choices you made.
>>8982547>>8982709>>Spamming your video everywhere and even copy-paste the hashtags in here.You'll probably be less hated if you just post your photos without trying too hard to become a brand.
Is this dude going to have rubbery forskin arms like goku did ?
>>8982878Sell it to me and buy a new one
>>8983225They probably just used the same arms as goku.
>>8983024Imagination Works and Dragon Stars are legit just bad lines
Anons why do people care so much about the dumb shipper boxes? I've been really thinkin about throwing away all of mine. It just seems dumb and annoying having to take a box out of a box when I'm swapping accessories. I don't plan on ever selling my figs so why should I care about resale value?
>>8983225Looks like a plastic body under cloth, i'm tempted but seems like there's no ab crunch.
>>8983225These fuckin things are an abomination. If you're going to use soft goods. Be consistent dammit! Why would you cover the arms and legs but not the upper chest? It just looks so phoned in.With that being said, I don't think they're using silicone or rubber or whatever, because you can see the shape of the joints through the material in the promo images. Plus it'd be pointless since they're covered by the fabric.
>>8983225>>8983234They didn't, they're not rubber arms, they're regular hard plastic arms just covered in cloth, like a Mezco
>>8983225Lazy fucks couldn't put a texture on Vegeta's next? Shit looks so weird compared to the soft goods.
>>8983200It's super annoying, I'm going to paint over it one of these days
>>8981552>see bandai is finally doing a new luffy figure after 11 years >it's imagination works CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES
>>8983279Worst part is I’m going to buy that shit Just give Luffy to revo so someone can make a good Luffy figure
>>8983248I used to care, but yeah its liberating to dump them.
>>8983289I agree, it seems like revoltechs are the only figures that actually come with accessories these days. I guarantee this imagination works wont have shit just like the VAH
Got my Frieza via DHL from Amiami and he's pretty awesome. Burter probably won't show up till August or September if we are lucky.
>>8982998people never fucking learn
>>8982998It looks good, you're a blind dumb retard.
>>8983424Goku one was shit and so will this.
>>8983424You deserve shit.
So I decided to inspect all of my unopened figures tonight because why not and when I opened my Bardock, which I got in late February, his right arm just snapped off when I was trying to rotate his arm. Kinda ruined my night but I’m hoping the place I bought it from will give me a replacement, if not then I’ll have to just buy another Bardock. I’m afraid to open my other figures now like the Ginyu force. Any known issues with those that I should be aware of for the newer releases?
>>8982878Check the hole in the hip where the peg on the leg fits in. It may be too big for the peg, if that's the case it's a factory defect and you should ask to exchange it.
>>8983466So instead of having any common sense, you tried forcing his arm and broke it, and now you want the store to give you a new one 3 months after you bought it? Bardock's issue is very well known. It's literally your fault for breaking it.It's a very common QC issue. Even if they sent you a new one (which they shouldn't) it'd most likely have the same issue and you're retarded ass would probably break it again.
>>8983466Bardock's arm swivels are fucked, yeah. Hope you got shock oil to drip into there, because all of them are like this.
>>8983466You had to use some sorta ample force to even do that. What were you thinking?
>>8981783>>8981892>>8981908>>8982534Heres my display, still need riser and stuff though.Also, I put my Chi chi upfront, and proud of her ><.
>>8983564all they did now are just recasting, those GF probably make them not want to make new sculpt.
>>8983564I do agree, I feel like DF need to calm down for a moment; granted his releases did get stunted temporarily because of factory he pays temporarily shutting down due to failing their regulations (mentioned in one of the FB posts).Like how long am I going to wait for Cyber Tao, or Gotenks head that was suppose to come during first quarter of the year, or even new teases like Inuyasha, the Naruto line, or fucking tracksuit 18 when he was showing off how much better his version would be than E Adventurer line despite having nothing to fucking show for it beyond the usual 3D renders.
>>8983545It's outstanding how easy it is to get DBZ faces right, for Bandai of all people to get it so wrong with the new SS Goku
>>8983429>>8983459Goku looked like shit and had rubber arms, this looks good and doesn't have rubber, get fucked, blind dumb retard.
>>8983545I feel the hair needs to be reworked
Is the hair mold for the 1.0 SSJ3 and 2.0 SSJ3 the same or is the hair different? I can't tell.
>>8983586Looks like it also one is made of cheese
>>8981581After they fix his jaw line and crossed armed hands hopefully.
>>8983504I literally tried to just rotate his arm and it broke. The plastic wrapper is still attached to the figure, that's how fast it happened. Expecting a $55 figure from a line branded as premium quality to not function the way it was designed and break right out the box is not exactly common sense.
>>8983586exactly the same, but 1.0 has a matt finish while 2.0 has a glossy finish. Also the articulation on 1.0 is better, you can rotate it more freely.
>>8983466>>8983508>>8983669Did the Ginyu force have that issue?(Jeice and Recoome) I cant bring myself to open them until Burter/Guldo get here too and wondering if I need to be careful or have some kind of lube on hand for when I open and play with them
>>8983794My Recoome's right shoulder was a little hard to get moving, but I managed to just twist without damaging it. Some of the others in this general seemed to have it worse though, so might not be worth gambling without some oil/hot water bath.
>>8983794This line is going to shit.
>>8983794Can't speak for the others but my Jeice had a fuckton of QC issues. Both of his shoulders and biceps were completely frozen, and even his ankle was stuck. Shock oil fixed it up thankfully
>this oil bath is going to feel so good!
>>8983225No, but he has a rubbery foreskin, unlike Goku.
>>8983794Ginyu have a minor issue like cracking joint, but very minor. But since Jiren everything are a gamble now, from great to seriously stuck. So everyone experience will vary.
>>8983801>>8983926Fuuu the Reviews ive seen they looked good , should probably just go ahead and open mine up to see.>>8983965Hmm the other figures I’ve got since Jiren were UI Goku the Captain, and Piccolo. I felt UI and Ginyu were two of the best in the line and Piccolo I liked a lot too despite the online critical of him.
>>8983965It's the factories they're using. When Hasbro swapped over to factories in the same area, suddenly every fucking factory was shitting out figures with these exact same problems.
>>8982547I always feel like awakening SS goku make every other goku looks bad, especially SS3.
>>8983225its tragically funny how the "more high end" toy has an even worse head sculpt than 15 bucks banpresto figurines.
>>8984032The ss3 goku doesnt look very good anyway
Would you buy this?
>>8983581It wasn't only the rubber arms that were shit but the lower bottom articulation was shit.
>>8983581You're so fucking gullible. Like I said: you deserve shit.You people never learn.
>>8984058No more than 60 smackaroos
>>8983559Nice display! I like the goku/bardock back to back pose.I think you just need some more risers for fat buu and the other big figures so they aren't hidden in the back.Also, sorry for posting my display again, but finally built one and put the lid on. Just shelves and doors to go. Really happy with it.
>>8983559What display case is this?
>>8984157Thx, Yeah Im still calculating what height and width of the risers I need.Why do do you put all those figure in? dont you have to get them all out again when you put the shelf in?Also migh want some weather strips for dust>>8984184its a cheap $100 display from a local store lol.
>>8984187Ah it looks good though, some risers and it should be an excellent display.>>8984157And this is looking really good man. I remember you posting this was quite an investment but looks like it'll pay off in the end.
>>8984116His hair is really nice. Wish we got more super saiyan hair like it. Super saiyan blue would probably look godly.
>>8984157This makes me feel uncomfortable
>>8984157The glass front seems like it'd be a heavy pain in the ass to get up to your attic.
>>8984187>Why do you put all those figure in?It's only temporary as there were all in the way of where I needed to build the 2nd case.Now both are up, I just need to finish them and get to arranging stuff.>>8984254thanks man. yeah, quite an investment, but it's been a dream of mine for 15 years, so i'm pleased it worked out.>>8984275why?>>8984323good job it's only 1st floor room and not the attic, but yeah, getting all the glass in and up the stairs was a nightmare!! One of the scariest things i've done in my life! lol
>>8984349its looking great man. are you gonna put a cozy chair in there or something for hanging out or nah? maybe a desk for posing stuff? idk
>>8984187Thats a great display for $100, way better than a detolf for 1/12 stuff
>>8984361How so? It suffers from the same issue of negative space above the figures like the detolf does.
>>8984372It does, but the detolf also has basically no horizontal space in addition to too much vertical space, so nearly every detolf display looks crammed together
>>8984378I agree, detolfs really arent the best choice for these figures.
>>8984069The fragile hips too. The whole figure is a piece of shit.
>>8984372Will the espert atleast be so kind to show us, his display?
>>8984484Why do I need to show my display to point out that those shelves have the same issue as detolfs do with negative space?
>>8983559>>8984349Does it bother you guys that the bottom level is so close to the ground? I personally like having stuff a bit closer to eye level.
>>8984524It bothers me that I cannot yet pre-order Bandai Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Z Dodoria.
>>8984058Is... this something that happened in Dragon Ball Heroes?
>>8984547Worse>Gogeta Ssj Blue 4 by Narutosonic666
>>8984547Could be real?
>>8984524actually my bed is next to it, so its on my eye level
>>8984515I want to know what kind of display is awesome for these figure?
>>8984568Personally I hang them from my ceiling with fishing line.
>>8984349Just looks weird for it to be so tall yet all the stuff is close to the ground. It's just an uncomfortable look. Idk. I wouldnt say it to yoyr face or anything,
>>8984568I'm not really sure truth be told. But that's not what I claimed. All I said was the shelves posted have similar issues to the detolf. Why are you being so cranky?
fedex finally brought my Gohan after it was wrestled from Poseidon. looks like it took some damage in the scuffle
>>8984378>detolf also has basically no horizontal spaceThis. I had the same problem with my cubes. Long horizontal space is important for continuity. cubic shelves like detolfs are really limiting for an aesthetically pleasing display.>>8984524>>8984575>so close to the groundThis is kind of a a necessary evil. closer to the ground means more real estate, which means more room for figures.Once I get all my hnk, guyver, db, jojo, berserk, etc. figures setup that shelf space is going to disappear REAL fast, so i needs as much as I can get, even if it's low.
>>8984606you misunderstood me. I know lots of people feeling about detolf, Im genuinely curious what type of display that realy fit these shf. Because I have not see a display that people say is good, except one that cost hundreds or thousands of dollars.I personally like detold, because I can weather strip them so they dont get dusty. I have trid wooden shelf, and boy those dust are hell to clean.
>>8984640Im trying to find a good display thats horizontal, but doeant cost lots of money.Thats why I choose that $100 glass display. I wish I have more money, but I think if I bought another one, that should fix my problem lol.
>>8984643Not him but something like a double or triple detolf (depending on your collection size) would be perfectly fine, I think the detolfs themselves look clean enough and the height is fine when balanced out with risers. That's something even the more deluxe and expensive displays will need to look good, simply because the figures are small. But the limited width really kills it for DB displays where you'll generally want to display a good variety of characters per series/sagas.Unfortunately there's not really a well known display case like that at an affordable price on the market from as far as I'm aware. I'm still looking around for a new display myself lately.Pic related of some custom built together one, not mine, but gives an idea of how that would be. I'm not sure Ikea will ever offer something like this.
>>8984643There isn't one, really. The new horizontal milsbo from Ikea is decent, better than a detolf imo, but it's $240 and doesn't have a lot of room. Plus it's low to the ground. I just use Billy shelves with glass doors but I have mixed displays where figures are next to books and other stuff
And honestly if you buy enough figures that you need more room than a detolf or two with risers, it's time to invest in a good display case anyway. At that point you're spending thousands of dollars on figures and can afford to pay to make them display well
>>8984666yeah i guess the solution is just buy another detolf. Again if you really collect this line, I dont think 1or 2 detolf really enough. Its gonna be 12-15 figures /year. We need the real estate.
>>8984671as far as the Milsbo brand, I also have two of these but I use it for larger figures; basically the dimensions of two detolfs together. Downside is the large horizontal divider.
>>8984686It will highly depend on what kind of collector you are desu. If you buy every release then there's pretty much no option but to invest in a big display case with the current pace of releases. But a lot of people will be more selective, only buy certain sagas, certain characters, maybe primarily collect OG DB or Super. In that case it doesn't make much sense to invest in a huge expensive cabinet.>>8984700Was looking at this as well and the divider really does distract.
>still no bulma picturesnot letting that leaker clown influence them i guess
>>8984700The divider in the center has been my main issue with this case as well. In Canada it looks like my only option is to order a custom job, since everything else appears to be designed for retail displays.
>>8984116I mean it looks great, but it's missing the base form head AND it's literally just the fucking SDCC repackaged. Like, what the fuck is this? Give us a proper Black re-release with the fucking base form head included.
>>8984868The hair looks slightly different from the SDCC one. Can't tell if it is a more metallic finish or different color.
>>8984868It’s meant to be a cheap entry figure for newcoomers
Kek new DF survey up. Votes in the comments were majority dragon ball stuff.
>>8984935Can this guy just release something? Stop with the polls. Sell product. It's like he just wants to remain relevant.
>>8984629How is he. How is the boy.
>>8984935How about he releases the 500 projects he's currently working on first.
>>8984935Have they made anything besides dragon ball I know they've teased things but actually make them.
>>8984968Think Naruto maybe.
>premium bandai quality
>>8984112You're a blind retard and you deserve shit. You'll get nothing but shit.
>>8984935This is from the fake account
>>8984980Ham hands on the hands.
>>8984903Ok, but they could still add the damned base form head even if all it has is a single faceplate to it. They still wouldn't lose a damn cent on these figures by doing it, Hell they could sell every figure in this line at $35 and still make a profit.>nb4 retards who don't know how cheap it is to mass manufacture and the literal fractions of a penny it costs to churn these things out claim that Bandai really totally absolutely has to sell these at nearly $90 a pop to turn a profit
>>8984980Wait until you try to turn the arm swivels!
>>8984868I could take or leave the normal head but I wanted him to come with the energy blade at least. Might buy a few more and have them as those weird clones he had
>>8985028Aside from the Gokus, every figure is a new, unique sculpt. You're paying people to design and engineer the figures, assemble the figures, make the molds, transport the figures, etc.The price isn't just in the plastic that is poured into the the dies, or whatever. Fuck, most domestic figures that are of far shittier quality are at, or will soon be at $35.
>>8985046And despite all that they could still turn a fat profit at those price points. They're priced at the point they are because they're maximizing profit, nothing else. They know this is the absolute limit they can charge and still sell them by the bucketload.
>>8985028You act as if producing a figure consists only of dropping plastic into a mold. Ignoring research and development, getting molds made (this usually already runs into the many thousands), assembly, marketing, licensing costs and god knows what other things go into it.
Just got Gohan, his scale is fine, you guy went really went crazy for nothing
>>8984349>finally bought a shelf>toys are still 10 inches off the floorOh god....
>>8984980I stopped touching this figure entirely and am waiting on the clear coat to come in until I do anything.
>>8985054Wow! Like a normal company!
What the fuck do I do about raditz paint chipping off? What can stop this ?
>>8985081Your retarded, he's supposed to be way under Goku's belt line. Not to mention his head is larger than the vast majority of adults in the line. Also you have the figure in the deepest crouch.
>>8985141It’s simple, don’t pose him
>>8985143i can pose my Gohan however the fuck i want and he looks great with other Namek characters, tough shit that you dont like his head because when they make him in his Saiyan armor theyre gonna use the same head sculpt like they do with every goku and vegeta
>>8985158you sound like that same coping anon from the other thread.
>>8985143>he's supposed to be way under Goku's belt line.Prove it
>>8985167whats the point in complaining about meaningless shit like a characters head being too big for your liking if youre gonna buy all the goddamn toys regardless if they change it or not?
>>8985081>Scales fine.Keep telling yourself that buddy.
>>8984980Whats wrong anon? Care to elaborate for those of us who are concered?
>>8985184if you don't care about figure quality, why are you buying premium figs and not buying dragon stars? Or Funko pops? These figures cost a certain amount and should have a certain level of quality. Accepting low quality deos you and other consumers no favors. You should post feedback through Bandai's customer service or through figuarts social media page, not just accept this poor rendition of kid gohan.
>>8985199i know youre not stupid enough to even consider dragonstars to be even half as good as any shfiguarts. Dragonstars are 20 dollars a piece, can barely articulate and come with nothing. Gohan was only 50 dollars, this is pennies to me
>>8982045>muh kid buuI hope that shit will never be made. Instead I can think about another four or five Bulma variants that are absolute must.
>>8985081I'm glad you like it, but nah.
>>8985177>>8985081His proportions are completely off. He's not even supposed to be tall enough to be at Vegeta's waist. Namek Gohan is crazy tiny and forcing it on the kid Goku body doesn’t work.
>>8985212>only 50 dollarsThat's a lot of money for a figure that is about as small as your penis apparently is.
>>8984973>>8985286Hope they reuse kid Goku's legs, arms for him, give him a kid Goku like torso, and a big ass head. Monkey paw
>>8985293To further illustrate
>Got Gohan and Freeza todayNice
>>8985298Whoever posed this, did a terrible job.
>>8985184Not him but I don't buy the figures that I don't like the look of. I love Dragon Ball and hold it in high regard and want a Kid Goku really bad but I refuse to buy the shit they put out, and the same goes for Gohan. I bought Tao and King Piccolo though as they're great.
>>8985298>scale fagsSeriously what is with fans of dragon ball action figures and their OBSESSION with scale. Its a fucking toy fuck off
>>8985327If they were truly OBSESSED with scale they wouldn't collect 90% of the line.
>>8985327Why dont you stick an Imagination works goku in your SHF collection?Its a collector line, the least we should expect is that they look good together. But having characters who are too big or too small is inexcusable, when you can just watch the show before sculpting /engineering something wrong for months.
>>8985356With how small he's supposed to be, they might have thought it would be a hard sell just by himself if he was tiny. Plus smaller joints and sculpts start to lose articulation after a point, this might just be the result of an engineering compromise.
>>8985381>they might have thought it would be a hard sell just by himself if he was tiny. Plus smaller joints and sculpts start to lose articulation after a point,The problem with this line of thinking is that they could easily pack him out with more accessories. Bandana heads, alternate shoes, blast effects etc.Plus the problem is they prove that other departments at Bandai can do it, Hell with Chiaotzu a character who's even smaller proves they just want ed save money cause they figure dumbasses will buy it anyways.
>>8985440Well if people are willing to buy it then why would they care how accurate it is if it's cheaper than making it accurate? You're in the wrong hobby if you're expecting companies to want to give you a reasonable amount of product for the prices they are asking for.
>>8985298>Gohan has a stand>Vegeta doesn't>can't even be bothered to actually re-create the sceneThis bothers me more than it should. >>8985356I agree with you...but people cherry pick their battles with this line like no other; both Krillin and Vegeta are taller than they should be; no one bitched about it as much as any of the figures. Though I do feel for them as Figuarts can't seem to nail 'kid' figures for the life of them. Gohan isn't accurate, but he isn't as terrible as people make him out to be.
HOW DO I PROTECT RADITZ PAINT FROM CHIPPING OFF?Do i use a flat topcoat spray can?Or a matte varnish?
>>8985454>Well if people are willing to buy it then why would they care how accurate it is if it's cheaper than making it accurate?Because they won't? If the kid figures continue to be shit I probably won't buy anymore. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
>>8985462Disassemble him and dip every single piece in clear liquid plastic.
>>8985184>implying I bought that shitty Gohan, or any of the other shitty Kid figuresImaging having such little taste and self worth you buy every piece of shit tossed your way rather than properly assessing if a sculpt is worth obtaining. In this case, it clearly is not.
>>8985462Disassamble him and dip every single piece in clear chicken broth.
>>8985461I think he earns the massive level of shit talk by being a recent figure. Bandai used to scale down large figs like android 16 and Cell, but since the line blew up large sized figures like Super Broly, Jiren, King Piccolo, Great Ape Vegeta are no problem. Making small characters larger is becoming less forgivable over time because nearly every other aspect of the line has improved tremendously.
>>8985461>but people cherry pick their battles with this line like no otherThis. People pick and choose which figures whose scale they are offended by. The reality is the scaling has been wacky for a great portion of the line. It's not until recently that they seem to take it more serious, perhaps that's why Gohan stands out more to people.
>>8985327go buy some funko pop. much better line for you.
>>8985327>scalefagSo, normal people?You're retarded if something so simple as that concept confuses you.
>>8985462A nice, hard crust of dried semen should protect it.
>>8985084lol. I guess I could have had the bottom section built for storage, but that would have meant less shelves.Already worried as I was confident my Guyver figures would fit in one section, but they didn't and now they're packed in way too dense.Going to have to go back to the drawingboard with the design so I can spread them out more.I can see me using the entire second case for DB at this rate! lol
>>89855587 knockoff ghost1 legit ghostYikes............
>>8985102Itll looked fucked if its glossy.
>>8985561it's actually 9 knockoffs. since he started with 10 during the buu fight.
Excuse me but why would you buy weak ass characters that suck donkey balls like Tien?Why would you waste $60 on a filthy weak shit?Get yourself a saiyan.
>>8985670>saiyans are cheaper than the "weak shit"Super saiyan bargain sale.
>>8985670>he doesn't want every form of every character and create the ultimate and definitive display
>>8985670I like little boy figures.
>>8985670>He doesn't want Z the warriors lineup
Tonight I will make cumshot
>>8985705You like little boys?
>>8985670>He doesn't like Freeza's elite Homo Sentai Team in lewd displays
>>8985670suck our fruit, lamer
>>8985670kinda based desu. don't know why people want to buy jobbers. if a character didn't win a big fight in Z, no point in owning them desu.
>>8985872So you only own Goku and Gohan figures?
>DF Guldo's dragonball isn't even a full ball and is molded into the handsI didn't even WANT the dragon ball, yet I'm offended by this
>>8985892>Gohan>not a jobberI raff.
>>8985892There are characters other then Goku Vegeta and Gohan?
>>8985906Yea I was kind of surprised by that.
>>8985920>win a big fight in DBZBitch, he killed Cell. You should, at very least, be consistent by your own standards. >>8985924Gohan has killed more major villains than Vegeta has.
>>8985924>Vegeta>Win a big fightAt least be consistent with your own ruleset. Time to sell some stuff bud.
>>8985994Gohan killed cell, so he is in last place for jobbers. Offical job ranks are as follows: >3rd - Gohan>2nd - Vegeta>1st (champion) - PiccoloYou cannot refute this list; it is objective fact.
>>8985983>>8985997Vegeta won my heart.
>>8986043When you put it like that, I can confirm you are a man of fine taste.
>>8985924based chad collection
>>8984935I don't buy DF stuff but goddamn this guy is nothing but talk at this point, it feels like to me.
>>8985670Even better, I'm wasting $80!
>>8985670Tien could kick your ass.
>>8986197Now scalefags are going to shit up this thread and talk about character scale that never existed nor ever will in the shfiguarts line
>>8986197Holy shit Gohan grew up in the spam of like 3 hours. Namek atmosphere is one hell of drug
>>8986243Your wrong. Namek has an effect of shrink male humans
I remember all the shitposts about kid gohan not being anatomically correct. Glad to see people are still sperging out about him because its funny as fuck.
>>8986197None of those Gohan's are gigantic like the Figuarts though???Toriyama started drawing Vegeta way bigger after Namek, so point still stands.
>>8986206If you're not a scalefag go buy some Real Action Heroes figures to toss into your SHF display.
>>8986280Why is Trunks so fucking tiny
>>8986197>>8986206>>8986243>scale that never existed
>>8986316I don't like the buu saga style
>>8986309Because scale has been fucked for this line from the start.
>>8986316Why is Gohan dressed like Zamasu?
>>8986316>Goten and Trunks are taller in bottem right comlared to the chart above it.
>>8986418Have you even watched DBZ?
>>8986206Wasn't Piccolo literally the first figure in the line out of scale?
>>8986425I stop at cell and skip to super. Buu is trash I've heard. Better just avoid it than waste the precious time in my life to watch it.
>>8986432Boo arc takes are a litmus test for anyone's taste. If someone doesn't like the Boo arc, they have shit taste
>>8986428Considering Piccolo was the first figure, every other figure was out of scale with him.
>>8986428He was also the first figure>>8986432>Buu is trash I've heardWay better than Super though
>>8986446Boo arc is peak Toriyama just having fun and flying by the seat of his pants and that's what makes it so enjoyable
>>8986471I'm not the guy who doesn't watch the Buu saga, but I don't really like it and I'd say it's worse than the Saiyan, Frieza, and Cell sagas.Wasn't it Toriyama's plan to have Goku stay dead after Cell and have Gohan become the MC, but someone told him he no?
>>8986469Yeah, Based. BASED ON MY ASS!
>>8986471That's literally autism. Read Sonichu, you'd like it.
>>8986436Buu arc may as well be the beginning of GT
>>8986471Buu arc has some interesting concepts but the execution is terrible. I loved everything until Buu begins to go through all his transformations. Toriyama does this with every villain, but with buu each transformation gets worse storywise. Piccolo is officially useless in this arc which hurts my soul. Final fight with kid buu was cool, but ultimately didn't feel like a final boss. pros:>Dabura and other Majin fighters are neat concepts>Fatt buu/genie villain idea is cool as is the introduction of more Kais.>I liked slice of life Gohan>SSJ 3 was an awesome transformation reveal at the time.Neutral:>Fusion is cool and iconic but eventually trivializes future fights.>Gohan is cool after his Potential is tapped but wasted ultimatelyBad:>Convoluted Buu story to explain his transformations>Wasted potential for some neat fights >Completely the Sayian show now>Kidd Buu is interesting but a lame "final villain"
>>8986639The world tournament, majin Fighters and Goku/Vegeta/Gohan going through the ship was pure kino. I think the worst thing about the saga was the fusion shit I just always hated it, especially when Gotenks became the main fighter who was just fucking annoying and cringe. I also hate the Fat retard Buu as both a villain and „“Z fighter“. Piccolo was just the last non saiyan Fighter to get power creeped. It was always happening Krillin became a nobody after Frieza and all the rest after Nappa/Vegeta.
>>8986639it reminds me of GT because I end up saying things like, "The Saiyaman, SS3 Goku, and Majin parts were cool, but the show(esp gotenks) was unbearable", and I think the ost around then sucked too, or it might've just the funimation version, but it was straight out of GT generic goofy music
>>8986436Actually super based
>>8986328Trunks was actually shorter upon debut, IIRC
