>>9178426Anon, you forgot the EEs in August.
>>9178444Oh, fuck, disregard. I'm an idiot and didn't see they were in their own category. Doing god's work, anon.
>>9178444They have their separate little mention, figured I would add them to the August section after the pre-order is over. Looks a bit more uncluttered.
Anything new today since they showed off nappa yesterday? When do those little bits of news happen?
>>9178475Nothing until friday. the only time they've ever dropped hints was SS4 Goku
DF Whis Goku turned out nice as expected. looking forward to posing this with hit when it arrives.
>>9178475I think they're going to save it all for friday.
>>9178498I'm sure they've got lots to show hopefully they can drop a hint or 2 for one of them like they did for SS4. Something like a pic of a pair of potara hinting Kefla or a pic of King Kai's planet.
Who is ready for the shit show tonight?
>>9178865What shit show? Its going to be like any other pbandai release. The real shit show will be the 22nd.
>>9178865>>9178873I might as well get two of each Android tonight. I live in the NYC suburbs in NJ and if I can’t sell em on eBay I’ll at least flip em for cost in person
>>9178901>>9178865Are you retarded? The PO's are gonna be open for like a month+. Theres no shit show over this. The shit show is going to be the EE drops because the fucking retards at Bamco didn't learn A SINGLE FUCKING LESSON from last years absolutely disgusting debacle.Can't wait to not be able to order a single fucking thing because the window is 3 hours but the site will be down for 5 with the entire internet gangbanging it to get Candy Hair Goku!
>>9178901You gonna have niggas stealing this shit off your porch. Watch out. XD
>>9178507Looks cheap. Is this official merch or third party?
>>9178928Ah makes sense. How much do they charge per head?
>>9178911I know it’s not a shitshow still getting these androids to sell em. And I got my EE androids last year so hopin for the same luck, getting 2 of each if I can and selling all but one beerus and one whis, not entirely sweating if I don’t get my set, won’t even but off ebay. If it was Android 16 tho I’d murder for the figure >>9178912Just googled it, my town only has 3.8% black people, 93% white so I’m not worried about packages getting stolen.
>>9178969I hope one of the 3.8% rob you
Goku eating set review:https://youtube.com/watch?v=2IndZ37aJHEAre you getting it?
10 minutes till show time.You boys ready?
>>9178970Why would you wish that evil on me? Right when covid hit when I was living in another town (also googled: 36% white, 23% black) and some dirty coon stole 40$ in singles out of my car, the money I give to homeless people on the traffic on the drive home. Glad to gtfo of that shithole
Sold out lol
>>9179033lol are u the same guy that posted it the second ss4 goku dropped? either way still shitty the site is fucking so slow, still checking out, now im nervous for the 22nd
It tells me to sign in then takes them out of my cart. Nice
Wow finally let me check out. EE is going to be fucking hell because I want all 4 and the stands.
>>9179033>>9179109>not knowing these will be open for weeks like the other PBandai exclusives. Retards are out today lol
>put shit in cart>log in>check out>mfw everything went smoothly
>>9179072Yeah this happened to me too. Super frustrating but I was able to purchase them with relative ease after. Fuck P-Bandai though, their website is utter shit.
>>9179115Just suddenly started eorking. Hopefully it will work right the 22nd. It'll be way worse.
Wait why is the EE Nappa $70?
>>9179114Doesn't change the fact the site is utter shit, which makes purchasing a pain in the ass
>>9179128Japanese Jews. They are rare and all worl at Bandai.
Is it safe to order the androids on nippon yasan?
>pictures for androids didnt even load>press 'place pre order' for androids>literally nothing happens>keep pressing>check cart to see that they actually showed up but in multiple quantitiesHow is the site this fucking awful on a night that's not even busy? You know getting the EEs is gonna take an hour just like last year.
>>9178426>retards complaining about PBandai exclusives.>it’s always about them selling out or site not working. >say “why can’t they just make them available everywhere.”>figures that have been available everywhere shelfwarm like kid Chichi and Bardock. You’ll retards like to complain on everything. PBandai exclusives last about two week before taken down. You’ll don’t know that PBandai is made to order to prevent shit from shelf warming.
>>9178969>Just googled it, my town only has 3.8% black people, 93% white so I’m not worried about packages getting stolen.Based
>>9179147Except the EE comings out are limited number.
I'm skipping the Androids I think. I'm happy enough with my EEs from last year. I'd be more inclined if they were 2.0s of those looks.
>>9179155Source:trust me bro
Got 17, fuck slav 18. Next up, cat boy.
Repost from last thread:>Purchase methods vary for regions outside of JapanAm I fucked? I want my cute bubblegum husbando.https://en.dragon-ball-official.com/news/01_273.htmlOn the topic of Buu, is there any good Majin Buu /toy/ content I should keep an eye out for? I only have a plush of him I found at Wal-Mart, and I want more of my bubblegum buddy
>>9178964....... Well I got a bridge to sell for people who buy those heads
>>9179188They literally told us in the live stream that the EE’s are already made and are all shipping in August. None of them are made to order.
>>9179188Check the live steam. Why get so offended?
The androids are 100$ each on BBTS. Holy shit.
>>9179207lmao Canada BTFO!
>>9179210Atleast you dont have to pay until it ships. But still.
>>9179207>they will sell out like the other PBandai exclusives.>someone that lives in the US will buy them even though they can get on PBandai site. Retards sure love to waste money lol.
>>9179211Don't they always mark up the prices on PBandai releases?
If you buy from bbts then you deserve to get scammed. There are other sites selling the androids for much less, almost close to retail.
>>9179207How late are you? The other PBandai exclusives on there are all sold out. Even the event exclusive that sold for $100 are sold out. I understand the people that don’t live in the US but if you’re from here and buy them, you are a retarded fuck. Lol
>>9179197The entire figure is 60. It isn't just the head.
>>9179109Just ordered on my phone at work while on the shitter. Ezpz.
>>9178426>scalpers are already selling the androids on eBay for double the price. >retards are buying them >the same retards are the ones that complain about scalpers. Some of you’ll faggots like getting fucked in the ass and spit on afterwards. Lol
>>9178426Anyone who other site(if any) that are gonna sell the androids too? And that don’t require a down payment?
>>9179147here's a thought, make figures people want and not pedoshit like Kid Chichi
>>9179287>someone will buy that now while the PBandai orders are still going.
>>9179301scalper feeders are brainless
>>9179241Oh that makes sense then.
>>9179211Fuck me I preordered from them, fuck canada, and fuck p-bandai
>>9179211They are called Big Bad Toy Scalpers for a reason :)
>>9179109How much is shipping for you guys? Not in burgerland so I don't have the luxury of p-bandai.
>>9179287I wouldn't buy it for the price but it's somewhat understandable when you break it down:>seller pays $60 + shipping to get it in hand>pays to ship the figure to the US/worldwide>eBay/PayPal takes their 10% cut of the final valueIn the end the seller will be lucky to make a $10 profit on the figure. It's one of the many reasons scalping toys is a sunk cost fallacy.
>>9178507just a reminder before anyone buys this. he cannot head swap with any other goku
>>9179601Well then dropped
>>9179631>>9179603>>9179601They used their shitty old neck peg, I don't know why they did this, because the UI Sign Goku and Kaioken Blue had normal SH figuarts pegsIf you need to switch heads you'll probably need to dip it in hot water and use pliers to take and switch out the neck pegs
>>9179601all these gokus look wrong
>>9179640Think they did this intentionally so they can sell the head on it's own later?
>>9179659Not sure, but they'll definitely have to change the size of the head peg hole to fit the new goku black coming out
>>9179147>PBandai exclusives last about two week before taken down.More like 2 months.
>>9179147>BardockMaybe only in America. He sold out everywhere in my hood.
>>9179128Because they can. And because they know you'll buy it.
>>9179865Arent the EE’s just pretty much the figures original prices? Seems reasonable enough.
>>9179891Bandai can charge whatever they want technically. Being EE means nothing except they don't think it's worth the cost of a mass retail release.
The survey for Lunch is up and we have some new DB additions on it.
>>9179640>you need to switch heads you'll probably need to dip it in hot water and use pliers to take and switch out the neck pegsNot exactly a hardship. They did the same with Goku Black and Ultimate Gohan. I swapped both neck pegs out with fodder from spare 1.0 gokus.
>>9179933What was on the last list? Bandit yamcha, oozaru goku?I think a great ape goku will be revealed at SDCC!
>>9179941Those are still on there, just sliced off the newly added ones. In full it looks like this right now, it's getting kind of ridiculous.
>>9179949Hoowry sheeyt. Crazy thing is, we'll get all of these eventually.Does everyone have enough room?
>>9179961Would potentially get. I'm actually quite excited at the prospect of 23rd budokai Goku coming. That could also easily serve as a saiyan arc Goku.
>>9179143No. NY is at your own risk.I got lucky with some other limited stuff being shipped 2 weeks after release, but my previous order took 5 fucking months to even ship.Meanwhile they were ignoring and canceling left and right.
>>9179966I want that Goku, I guess Majunior for curiousity's sake, Eighter and Announcer. Announcer the most out of any DB character.
>>9179601>he cannot head swap with any other gokuCant you just swap the neck peg?
Oh yeah review here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7v_gptGXPM
Amiami had a giant amount of pre-owned figures up that I missed, but I did snag another Armored Broly that I can finally use to have his Ikari form in my display.
>>9180144Looks great. This head looks more like Super SS Goku anyway and it looks perfect. Don't know why everyone hated it.
>>9179287>Japan version Incase you dont want that funimation sticker.
>>9179949>zero buu saga figures out of all these optionsGod, I hate this fucking line. We haven't gotten shit in years. Only videl in the pipeline.
>>9180212We also have SS2 Goku coming. Thing is they currently add new options related to current releases. Burter's survey added Namek chars, SS Goku added Androids, now Lunch adds DB ones.
>>9180212Be patient. They will probably do a year of mostly Buu characters soon. Just let them make what they want at their own 0ace.
>>9180260He came with Bulma's bike. Next.
>>9178467Heres your SHFIGUARTS Goten and Kid Trunks.
>>9180260Really want this but doubt we'll see it any time soon. Maybe they can introduce a better proportioned body with GT Goku first.>>9180271Yeah with 16 releases per year, they'll be going through the series fast enough. All a matter of time.
Even though Buu is my favorite saga, at this point I rather them work on one Z arc at a time and just finish it up. Like it's nice my Super display is almost done for the important ones, opposed to like Buu and Cell that look like shit for being incomplete/1.0's.
>>9179949who heres on your NEED list? for me its>Chichi TB23>Yamcha First Outfit>Kefla>Trunks 2.0>Krillin 2.0>Metal Cooler>Cell First Form
>>9180440i think i would prefer if every month wed have a new series: 1 dragon ball fig, 1 z fig, 1 super fig, 1 special fig (movie or game) and repeat that 3 times every year
>>9179949The fuck is Kale runaway? Is that supposed to be the broly form or whatever? also, no android 16, what a shit list.
>>9180588Figuarts is going to have NECA do Android 16 so he can come with a "break apart" feature that actually just breaks the toy.
Is everyone ready for tomorrow? It's gonna be a shit show.
>>9180594>Neca 16 the second you touch it
>>9180588Runaway is the Broly looking form. Real question is what the regular Kale could be base or SS. Forgot if she had another state on top of these.
>>9180598Since they just showed off the Super stuff (Androids), the actual stuff they'll probably unveil will likely all be Namek and Cell saga stuff, maybe one Dragon Ball prototype.
>>9180620I think he means the first round of EE’s. SDCC isn’t until friday.
>>9179949Whats a Mighty Mass Yamcha?I assume his car from googling? Then a yellow, as it's price-dependent.>>9180588Berserk, yes.
>>9180540Mr Popo. In both colors.
>>9180633Have him use that paint/plastic that changes color depending on the temperature.
>>9180638Lol have him change to blue only in American climate.
>>9179949>Saiyan pod>Kefla>Kale>Krillin >Trunks>Yamcha >Vegeta>Goku Gt >Pan>GT Trunks>Dodoria >Zarbon>All Frieza forms>Super Roshi>1st form CellMake it happen Bandai!
>>9180631Yeah just shitty automatic translating. Should be Mighty Mouse, it's indeed Yamcha's car.
>>9180633God is coming >>9179954
>>9180629Ooh, my bad. Sorry.
The 2nd batch that goes up on the 23th does happen at the exact same time as the event opens up, 10AM PDT. Something to keep in mind if you miss out on day 1, might want to get your order in before you check on the new goods.
>>9180633Regular Popo will be black, with an EE blue version.
>>9178426If anyone wants an update both androids are sold out. The second batch of preorders start on 23rd. Don’t buy from scalpers you’ll get another chance.
>>9180775What the fuck are you talking about?
>>9180664Dodoria is on his way
>>9180818Did they actually say it while showing?Because Bandai makes so damn many prototypes they don't release.
>>9180821I can’t speak for Bandai as a whole but as far as Dragon Ball goes, they haven’t left any prototype unproduced since 2015 with the only exception being that large scale Shenron. Would be very surprised it Dodoria doesn’t make it to release.
Is tomorrow they day they might show new prototypes?
>>9180821Also what they said was Dodoria would release if 1st form Frieza performed well. They said the same about Ginyu last year in order to get the rest of the force, he would need to do well. I think he's still readily available and we got the whole group anyway. Not sure if it means much.>>9180893Friday. 10AM PDT US time, 7PM EU time.
>2022>Finishing up Namek, Cell Saga, Videl, SSj2 Goku, DB>2023>Finishing Cell Saga, New movie figs, GT Figs, More DBrealistically the Buu Saga won't get focus for three years and that's if they don't try to force heroes and xenoverse video game crap.
>>9180971>He doesnt realize that GT Goku is gonna sell so well that theyre gonna push up SS4 Vegeta and Super Baby II to 2022
>>9180986>GT Kid Goku will fix the proportion issues from the DB Goku but will never be re-released with the DB skin or gi colors.
>they’re all pretending to know what’s next
>>9180986I see next year>Dodoria>Zarbon>Krillin 2.0>Base Vegeta>Videl>2nd Form Freeza>Janemba>SSj2 Goku>Videl>King Kai>Imperfect Cell>Kefla>3 EE (Probably Movie 11 Gogeta being of them)
>>9181033>has to wait until 2023
>>9181033>King Kai and Videl before Trunks 2.0i wish for death
Do you think they're done with Bulmas?
am I shit out of luck for getting the SS3 Reissue?
>>9181098DBS Bulma is extremely likely considering its the only outfit she wore minus Broly
>>9180578They already kinda do this it just isn't perfectly balanced cause there's more Z left than the others. For the rest of the year we have Lunch, Black, Cooler, TIen, SS4, Bulma, 17/18. The people lining up the schedule know what they're doing.
>>9181098I kind of think they are. The ones we've gotten made sense, her more iconic looks from the series. I could maybe see a bunny version someday.
>>9181141>BBTSif youre america use Eknightmedia
>>9181141>180.00 for RaditzThat's pretty shameless even for BBTS.
>>9181141>>9181142>>9181147>some of these and the event exclusives are sold out. >some of you’ll actually paid double and a down payment. This is why scalpers will never die. Retards everywhere wasting money. Lol
>>9181141Is that Raditz actually a reasonable deal or will I be wasting money? I'm still mad at myself for never buying him off p-bandai.
>>9181198He goes for 12000 yen on Mandarake, but he is rarely In stock. Being a leaf i just went fuck it and payed the price. It's up to you as a person what you want to spend.
>>9181198He seems to be steadily increasing. A few weeks back he was around 160 or so, but now he seems to be closer to 200 on eBay. Might be worth lurking eBay for a few days before pulling the trigger with BBTS though.
Hit delayed to August
>figure is available to order on p-bandai for about a month>decides not to purchase >pays out the ass to some scalper for two times the msrp >bitches and whines on 4chan about it >rinse and repeatYou think they will learn the first time. My goodness.
>>9181366I love paying $70 for such top quality service. Can't wait for the servers to be down for 5 hours tomorrow during the 3 hour limited window we have to buy some figures, oh boy! What great service!Pic related, it's Bandai servicing us all.
>>9181376P-bandai isnt available for every country you know.
>>9180893they're supposed to talk about the new movie on the 24th, there's no way they're not already producing toys for it behind the scenes
>>9181387>living in a third world country and not America.It’s not my fault you live in a shit show.
>>9181396Yes, yes it is.
>>9178426>the old 1.0 androids get event exclusives last year. >Beerus and Whis get event exclusives this year. I wouldn’t be surprised if both Beerus and Whis get 2.0s next year or 2023. It would be a big fuck toy to people that bought them tomorrow just like the androids were. Lol
>>9181380You think this is bad? Try queuing for an RTX 30 series on EVGA. They will literally ban you if you have multiple browsers opened. At least you can have different tabs opened for Bandai. Just open one for each product and click add then open new tab the cart. That worked for me last time. But yeah tomorrow is going to piss off a lot of folks for sure.
>>9181376Are the Super androids sold out already? If so expect retards to come here and complain. The same idiots will end up buying the BBTS ones. Lol
>>9181380seriously what store starts taking orders at 9pm, and regular closes their preorders at 10am? whatever happened to noon and midnight? Now I have to wake up an hour earlier to struggle to get in an order so I won't have to wait a year
>>9181366>2020 EE'son time>Vegito and Zamasudelayed>Kid Gohandelayed>Jeiceon time>Recoomedelayed>Raditzdelayed>Burterdelayed>Hitdelayed2/8 so far. We're not getting Cooler in September bros
>>9181426>Kid GohanLost at sea
>>9181429Granted that wasn't their fault but he had already been delayed to December if I remember correctly?
>>9181432Probably, I honestly don't remember. I just like making fun of it. The memes were pretty great from that whole debacle. Weren't the second batch of EEs also in that shipment?
>>9181426and im supposed to buy 17 and 18 on Pbandai right now for what reason? why would i ever use that site again when everything gets delayed? to save money? by the time the figures already get to my house i will have gotten a dozen new paychecks!
What websites do you guys use to get your web exclusives early? I know cube anon, desk anon, and several reviewers already have Hit and Burter
>>9181141people really want goku's jobber brother that much? i don't understand paying that much for Raditz. he never did anything, it's wild to me someone would say, yep. Raditz, that's worth almost two hundred bucks.
>>9181453Very highly requested figure for years, I'm not surprised.
>>9181415>Just open one for each product and click add then open new tab the cart. That worked for me last time. This anon gets it. At least P-Bandai reserves stock for you if it is in the cart; fuck Walmart, Target, and Amazon for needing to get to check out and enter payment info on the PS5. That was true suffering.
>>9181387>Not knowing there are different sites that sell the exclusives for only 10 dollars above the msrp
>>9181432Wait there are still people who didn’t get their kid gohans?? Lol I got mine a while back and this was after the ship wreck
Raditz is gone from BBTS, you fools! You foolish god damn fools.
>>9181453Hes the first bad in Z which is everyones favorite, essential for a saiyan display(everyone loves the saiyans), he looks fucking good, hes unlikely to get another figure. I definetly wouldn't pay $200 for him though, but lots of people literally dont give a fuck how much something costs they just want it. I wish I bought 5 of him. Other than Ginyu force/Raditz I didn't plan on keeping any of the other pbandai figures I got, but of course every other faggot thinks like me and those are the ones that were worthwhile to buy a ton of lol.
>>9181539I'll sell you a Raditz without a scouter for 100, anon.
>>9181543Maybe he will get an EE like Nappa in like a year or two
>>9181141this is batshit. I paid less than that for 2 of them, including shipping from Japan to the UK.>>9181445i was ordering from nin-nin, then moved to hobby genki when they were taking a while to shipout.Kinda use both new depending on prices. Both reliable with good customer service.
>>9181105God I fucking need this.
>>9179949link for the survey?
>>9181442Third batch, I think. IIRC, there were two waves of the premade figures, then the third time the EEs were up they were made-to-order. Unless I'm retarded. I got one of the premade Signs, but I don't believe I was in time for the first upload.
>>9181703I think there were only two. The first were the ones that sold out and effectively fucked the checkout system. Then, Twitter bitched out Bandai and they did a second, made to order, with a week long pre order period? Could be wrong as I got the first batch and not the second.
>>9181717There were three. The first one which was fucked up and barely anyone could get anything, then the next day they canceled/cut orders so people could only order 4 of each and opened orders again using those figures which went very quickly again. Then they opened the third wave which was the week long ones that were made to order. I got mine in the second wave and got it in the normal time. It was the third wave that was the one on the boat with Gohan.
>>9181793Well, if anything, it's a good sign as I'm sure Bandai will cave again and release a third wave if enough people are vocal about. Plus, I think it is safe to assume Bandai increased their stock due to the fiasco last year.
So tomorrow I wanted to try and pick up Beerus and Whis, maybe candy SSG hair. How fucked am I? I really want Beerus and Whis more than anything since I passed on their original release and regretted it when the price quadrupled. Should I try to buy one at a time, or put all of them in my cart?
I only want beerus but I’m kinda forced to get whis too right? It just feels wrong to get one without the other.
>>9181853Do it if you don’t mind paying double shipping. I managed to get 18 and omen in one order last time around, so it’s not impossible. Just be there in time, logged in and everything.
>>9181853Last time I ordered 17 and 18 separately just to be safe, but I think this year as long as the website seems ok I'm gonna go for Beerus and Whis together, and then maybe get Goku in a separate order.
>>9181867>>9181872Okay thanks anon. I think I will try to get beerus and Whis in one cart. Then try SSG goku as a separate order to be safe, worst case I will try on day 2. It isn't earth shattering if I miss them anyway. I don't collect Super, I just want Whis and Beerus because I actually like them, plus I want to make a movie shelf once we get more movie figs.
>>9181860I guess if you're retarded, with no self control. Go ahead and fight for it tomorrow night, just to give away your money for something you don't want.
>>9181853If you want them for cost:>be on P-Bandai at 8:30EST (convert to timezone as needed)>open one window per figure>refresh around 8:59est and add to cart asap when they are available>check outShit is not hard lol
I'm a slow retard. Are these recolors just that, or are some 2.0/upgrades? I don't have any of them.
>>9181994Just recolors of the originals.
>>9181973And thats why the site is going to crash at exactly 8:59-9PM.
>>9181453I'd say that's part of the reason WHY figures like him became so expensive. Background, borderline nobodies who will be made once, and then likely never be done ever again in the line. Just like with the Ginyu force.
>>9182027Still surprises me that many people view the Ginyu force as small background villains. Maybe it was just me but I loved the ginyu force. Back in the day I made a Ginyu force deck for dbz tcg and the revival. I also like Great Saiyaman Gohan.
>>9182033Well, I don't mean it as a bad thing, and I guess "background" villain isn't really right, but I mean Bandai never really bothered with B and C list villains for a long time. Chances are, they'll probably never do these guys again, whereas you can see them doing different Friezas, Cells, and Buus since they're the main villains of their respective arcs.
>>9182047Ginyu was in Super.
>>9182033Ginyu himself appears in video games at least, with the other members usually being part of his attacks. Raditz rarely ever appears in anything.
>>9182074Yeah, in one of the many retcons over the movie, and he's pretty much just there as a joke for 2 minutes just to get annihilated by Vegeta.
>>9181453What a terrible take. Raditz is really important to the story of Dragonball. I really dont under stand people who DIDNT want him. He reveals Goku was an alien, made the Villain from the past arc shit himself just by showing up, and he basically got Goku killed. If Goku didnt die he wouldn't have learned the Kaioken and Spirit Bomb.
>>9182084can't remember if it was this one or the first one I really liked. That and the LOG games were my jam for handheld dbz.
>>9182114It is weird that after he dies he never even gets mentioned again in the entire show other than a couple lines by Nappa/Vegeta when they get to Earth. Goku nor any of the other Earthlings ever acknowledge that he came lol. Seeing them bring him back in Super seems like something they would do, I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if it happened. They love to bring shit back in because the show is essentialy just a nostalgia cashgrab and they could spin it that he was training in otherworld and somehow was able to become one of these Godlike beings because he has the same genetics/bloodline/potential as Goku.
>>9182139The 2nd one was the one with the team combo attacks. Played both so much back then.
>>9182114I'll say it was kind of pointless to make Raditz Goku's brother because it's not like either character really gives that much of a shit about their relationship, nor does it have any long-lasting effects on Goku's outlook since he doesn't embrace his saiyan heritage until Vegeta gets popped on Namek, and he's never really brought up in the story after his usefulness has run out.He could've just been one of the 4 saiyans left in the universe who was tasked to check on Goku and it escalated into a fight to the death and it would've made the fact that nobody brings him up again less awkward.
>>9182251Making him Goku's brother and having Goku not care about that says a lot about him, though. Goku's still an earthling first and foremost even if he's not a native born human.
>>9182214Toriyama likely forgot entirely about him. Same with Launch.
>>9182033To be fair I recently went back and watched through the freiza saga on kai and in the grand scheme of things they do kinda get the minor villain treatment. They start out as this feared mystery group that Vegeta was shitting his pants over, then they show up and Vegeta takes out one pretty quick while getting his ass kicked by one other. Goku shows up and makes a joke out of another 2 and to some extent ginyu while jeice gets taken out by Vegeta in like 2 hits. Although the entire freiza force gets more or less the same treatment in service of freiza being shown as the ultimate threat.
anyone have the checklist?
>>9182389I have so few of these because they keep re-releasing shit but better, but such is woe when collecting, You think they can top SRoE Goku?
>>9182426>thinking new products means new reveals. >forgetting that could just be the event exclusives or other figures that were already shown. >getting your hopes up for a new reveal for just to be SS2 Goku. Come on anon
Going to be 1st form Cell. Mark my words.
Ok, fess up, who here bought the BBTS Raditz? I know at least one of you fucks bought one.
>>9182478SS2 Goku and Dodoria enjoy your already shown figures faggot. Lol
>>9182461I really can't wait until they start doing Buu Saga everything and these two finally get announced. This general is going to be a fucking shit show.
>>9181973Are you new? Shit crashes exactly the moment preorders go up, the buttons and cart glitch and pages take ages to load.
>>9182230LOG2 was pure kino.
Y-you skipped this right? It’s the ugliest faceplate they’ve ever done.
>>9182593I pre-ordered it assuming I'd get what I saw from the prototype
>>9179301Non-Americans have no alternative. It’s fucked, and Bandai doesn’t give a shit because they’re still making money.
>>9181396America is the biggest shitshow on Earth
>>9181366>they gave us a shipping estimate of July 28th>now delayI fucking hate this shit.
>>9181445Desk anon orders from Nin Nin Game
>>9182389I don't know if I will get EE SSG Goku. I like the color of the gi but not sure if that's worth buying him for.
>>9182746Fuck. Forgot to add that I previously owned the EE Vegetto Blue that came out in 2018.
Saw a Dragon Stars Armored Broly at Target yesterday and thought it might work well for a base form body. Looked online to see if anyone did it and found pic related. What do you guys think? Neck will need to be modded to fit the head, and some parts could stand to be repainted or matte coated, but even as is it looks respectable to me considering we're not likely to ever get a true base form figuarts.
>>9182593I'm not buying it for the faceplate
>>9182433>pretending to be retarded
>>9182826I thought about doing that for the same reason, glad I didn't after seeing this. Didn't realize just how much worse it looks until seeing them side by side.
>>9182459Barely counts as a prediction when we’ve known he’s coming for literally a year now.
>>9182879>Didn't realize just how much worse it looks until seeing them side by side.But the shoes look better on the Dragon Stars and the shoulder armor is less gappy. The paint, or lack thereof, is it's biggest flaw, and that can be fixed.
>>9182593I ordered 2, both shipped this morning from CDJ.I like the face, looking forward to having fun with these along with my re-ment stuff.
>>9182593there's gotta be a funny combo with that, like the awakening body
>>9181973it took 90 minutes last time, with 20-30 minutes for each checkout step to load, a lot of people gave up, reasonable people
>>9182593The face is just a bonus. Most people are buying it for the food.
>>9180746Wouldn't it make more sense to have blue Popo be a regular release and black Popo be a Japanese/Asia exclusive for people not easily offended?
>>9182959The japs don't care about that any of that shit, they'd just make the figure as it's supposed to be and then the US branch can decide if they dare release it in the west. If it ever happens I could see it releasing on pbandai japan only, like Lunch did as well.
>>9182951Reasonable people who then bitched and moaned until they got put up again.
>>9182972sounds reasonable to me, if you can be patient for a second batch and bandai can make another shitzillion dollars after the first, then why not, other collectors feelings? those certain collectors don't care about anyone's feelings when they resell for 2x-3x msrp
Anyone knows where can i still order Cooler?
>>9182954>foodIt’s trash too. Just get rement shit instead
>>9183109Local comic shop.
>Eating face looks great in proto shots>Horribly misprinted in final releaseIs there anything Bandai can do correctly?
>>9183115>>9183205>>9183321ya'll funny guis
>>9183277Seriously how can they fuck up this bad? They just had to leave it as is but now he looks like a blob fish
>>9183480Cheap Vietnamese QC. The part time rice farmer in charge of reviewing the printing figured it was good enough so he could go back to eating cats.
>>9183488Kek. But do they really leave the QC up to some random Vietnamese rice farmer though? I’d imagine someone from Bandai would be there overseeing the production. Bandai is just as retarded as Goku’s face if they decided that this was okay to release.
>>9182214Raditz was in the Broly movie, though.
>>9183515Probably just a local rep, who would be an ascended rice farmer. Same problem with QC but they taught him to say "please understand" when he screws up.
>>9183537Wish they'd just make these in Japan.
>>9182915Gohan and Bardock look like they are thinking of something really terrible. Goku just isnt giving a fuck meanwhile
>>9182826>DS Broly and his reptar green skirt
>>9182731It's so they can save money shipping Burter, Hit, and Ssj Goku all together on the same boat.
>>9182251It's really important that he's Goku's brother. Its to push the theme of Goku's true nature vs what he was tsught on earth. Goku rejecting Raditz was Goku rejecting the negative parts of being a saiyan.
>>9183115>>9183205>>9183321Clearly im fucked
>>9183773>sold out on BBTS for 124.99>eBay is up to 200.00 in some casesWell, glad I ordered an extra.
Shenron arrived yesterday. No box or instructions. He's a pain to set up properly. Has anyone tried any other poses or tried using different stands? I've got plenty of Storm Collectibles stands, have yet to try them out though.
>>9184086Just use the stand he came with; he's pretty much just a glorified statue anyways, so not sure how well he would slot into other stands.
Interesting to note, Lunch is actually made in China.
>>9184097>Even the OG DB figs are getting glossy. Ok. last one from that sub-line for me.
>>9184112Why is no one acknowledging the serious QC issues that every release in this line has had in the past year? Glossy figures without a proper matte coat, QC issues that affect every figure, faces getting fucked up...
>>9184143Not having matte doesn't mean a QC error you dolt. Also "muh glossy" fags always sound like huge cunts. Who gives a fuck? It's plastic. Even with the matte coat it shines under light you fucking retards.
>>9184143People point out the QC issues all the times in these threads. Recoome and Raditz in particular are some great examples of this.
>>9184197Don't forget Bardocks wrists, some first form Frieza wrists, the alt eating face for Goku. Honestly the posters here are pretty on the ball when it comes to finding consistent QC issues in this line, not a lot of pure box collectors.
>>9184096>>9184097Oh God. Why is Launch so cute
>>9184184There are people on this board you can get away with speaking to this way. I am not one of them, sir.
>>9184230Bardock's wrist's weren't even the problem, it was his arm swivels. Most were so tight they're shear right off the peg. Happened on my first Bardock, and my replacement I had to practically drown in silicone shock oil to make it move without the same thing occurring.
>>9184258Ah right, my mistake. I knew it was arm related but didn't pick him up.
>>9184096>Blue Launch gets three faces, two of which are practically identical>The more iconic Launch only gets two faces, one of them is smilingLiterally why Bandai
>>9184272Oh, he had wrist problems too for some people, just the arm one was the most common by far.
>>9184310Why didn't we get a launch body in the official Turtle School gi?
>>9184143Well then you've not been reading these threads because people who've had issues have stated them very clearly. There's also a lot of people who don't actually get issues. I was kind of nervous to crack open Bardock and Frieza after the threads here only to find out I (thankfully) had zero issues on mine. Only problematic one for me personally has been Raditz.
What's the best way to order the EE's? I'm on vacation and only have my phone and iPad. I was planning on logging in to both and trying to get beerus&whis on one, and goku on the other.Is there a better way to do it?
>>9184335It does feel like that sometimes. I got Hit and there's nothing wrong with him but when more people get him there might be something.
>>9184352Sign in, open 4 tabs with each figure you want. At 9 add to cart snd jumo from page to page as fast as you can and check out.
>>9184318I hope she has an ass of some kind..
>>9184423>>9184352There is no best way, the site is going to get absolutely fucked the second it opens and be broken for the majority of the 3 hour window, same as last year. Hopefully people bitch and we get an actual week long preorder window LIKE BANDAI SHOULD HAVE FUCKING DONE IF THEY LEARNED A SINGLE FUCKING LESSON FROM LAST FUCKING YEAR.
>>9184096Please post if she has an ass
>>9184429Just gotta grt them in your cart and keep trying. Either it works or it doesn't. I was just sharing the quickest >>9184433way to secure the items in the cart.
>>9184429>LIKE BANDAI SHOULD HAVE FUCKING DONE IF THEY LEARNED A SINGLE FUCKING LESSON FROM LAST FUCKING YEAR.The thing is for many months SDCC 2021 was planned to be a physical event and it's safe to assume these EE's were premade with that in mind.
Do I do it? This is in leafs. Somebody talk me out of it, I'm so close.
>>9184449You could wait a bit and it might drop. Look at how much Piccolo and Ginyu are on there, they've dropped quite a bit from their initial price.
>>9184445Then they're idiots if they actually thought the US would be ready for open events again during an ongoing pandemic.
>>9184459>>9184461I'm weak :(
>>9184466You made a good choice either way. Yeah stuff tends to dip a bit in price on Amazon over time, but sometimes it also doesn't.
>>9184466Found multiple on ebay for 8
>>9184463The people running SDCC are idiots as they were the ones planning and marketing this as a physical event until just a few months ago.
>>9184429>we have no idea how large the stock is compared to last year>Bandai has two waves vs one I'm not underestimating Bandai's incompetence, but, at the very least, it is safe to assume they did learn some lessons from last year as they appear to have made some changes/updates to the process.
>>9184510>>9184501I don't know why they just don't make it a limited made to order run like they did with that ugly Edgelord Goku Clone. Why did that piece of shit get it's own special run but these are stuff we have to fight for?
Messed around some with Shenron. The stock stand does not like to hold together at all so I used Storm stands.
>>9184514Looks good.>also Transformers stuffBased taste.
>>9184512I already gave you the most logical explanation behind that, SDCC was for the greater part of a year planned to be physical. Event Exclusives are normally never made with an intention to be sold online.I get it's both a blessing and a curse but it is what it is.
>>9184101>Launch made in China>Raditz made in Vietnam Why?
>>9184101Weird. Where was the eating set made? Hit was still Vietnam.
>>9184579Because whoever calls the shots at Bandai is retarded. Look at the EE debacles, look at the shit QC we've been getting, look at all of the delays, look at Gohan's Underwater Adventure Saga, etc. It should be obvious the brain trust at Bandai has gone rotten.
>>9184449It's a good figure fellow snownigger, especially for the price. I'm fond of this face on him.
>>9184601Eating set is Vietnam. The Cooler box shots they posted also say Vietnam, suggesting he'll be produced there. So doesn't seem that Lunch's China production means they're switching back
>>9184612>Cooler will be VietnamOk, my guess for the QC issue will be tail joints frozen, and misprinted eyes on the maskless face
>>9184449I know 99% of people that collect this line are consumers that will pay whatever price Bandai sticks on these figures(myself included), but this was honestly the first figure I passed on because I thought it didn't warrant its cost. $90+(US) for a regular release small ass Frieza? Then I heard a lot of reports that the figure had issues and most people displaying just permastick him in the pod because his one leg is shit. If I see him fall $20+ off retail like some of these other pegwarmers I might end up picking him off, but fuck that retail cost.also a little different for me as I already had a Frieza(ressurection F) and I have little doubt they will release a Full Power Roid Frieza/Mecha Freeza at some point so it's not an essential figure by any means.
>>9184096>>9184097How's the QC and gloss? Any issues? I only got her and Ten this year and I really hope I didn't get fucked with bad QC
>>9184660>multiple faces>multiple hands>effect part>fully painted pod>stand for podCooler was 80 + 10 shipping for much less..how are you shocked?
>>9184641What does Bandai do if you get a fucked P-Bandai figure?
>>9184660>didn't warrant the cost>comes with the pod>extra head too>usual assortment of hands and normal amount of faceplatesJust the extra head and the pod alone meant this was going to be $80+.
>>9184728"The quality is acceptable".That's what you get.
>>9184728Not sure, can't order from them directly. I imagine there is some number of replacement units produced but that's probably just a small percentage.
>>9184737>arm breaks off because Vietkong Revenge"The quarity is acceptiburr fat gaijin."
>>9184726Cooler is like twice the size, P-bandai meaning hes going to double in value instantly, looks way fucking better, possibly the best looking figure yet, isn't a character thats going to have all these different variations. that guy was one of the easiest buys.>>9184731the pod should make up for him being a midget. Just think he was priced $20 bucks too high is all. if he was justified at that price to you its fine I hope your happy with it.
>>9184751>Just think he was priced $20 bucks too high is allJust about every SHF is priced $20 too high. Just like every figma is about $40 too high these days. Only figures lately that have been even sort of worth the cost are Amazing Yamaguchi revo's.
>>9184757Technically the figures are "worth" whatever people are willing to pay for them. And since most collectors are simps where collecting the line is their identify, this allows the companies to price whatever the fuck they want. SHF could probably increase every figure by another $10-20 bucks and nothing would happen except they make more money.
>>9182826You're better off getting a bootleg for 30 bucks off of aliexpress or ebay. I just grabbed one and it's one of the best bootlegs out there.
>have tabs open on phone and work PC>tell coworkers I'm going to be busy with a big project for the next couple hours>all ready and hyped>notice it says 9 PM not AM>tfw illiterate
>>9184510Limiting it to 1 per household address would have been a good start, but guess I was hoping for too much.
>>9182746I feel like all the 1.0s should be in the top row, my ocd is kicking in...
>>9184445The figures were premade last year too, you dip.
>>9184866Did I say otherwise? Those got caught in the same trap. Figures made for event, then shit shuts down and they're forced to sell them online instead. The question was "why did Bandai not do made to order this time?" and the simple answer is, they were intended for an in person event just like last year. Like every year, for that matter.
what's the safest way to get rid of the brown lines on the new SSJ Goku faces?
>>9184890The first batch of the figures were premade. Then after a bunch of people complained, they opened a second batch for a week which were made to order. People wondered why they didn't do that. Did anybody really think SDCC was going to happen this year? Just to be safe, they should have simply done the whole thing as a made to order, just like last year.
>>9184903>People wondered why they didn't do that.They still might, depends on how the sale goes this time. No need to prematurely open up another made to order batch if this one can do the job. Time will tell.>Did anybody really think SDCC was going to happen this year?The folks who organize SDCC did for the longest time, so they're really to blame. Since summer last year up until March of this year they continued to optimistically claim it would be a physical event in 2021 again.
>>9184902Wash your hands before touching the figure, or just don't wipe your ass with your bare hands.
Do you guys have all your bots ready for the even exclusive release tonight?
>>9184987I wish, just going to test my luck.
Boys ready for the shit show tonight?
>>9184987You unironically need to commit suicide.
DAWN OF THE FINAL HOURONE HOUR REMAINS.
>>9185013My only hope is everyone raises hell on twitter/facebook again, so the stupid fucks put everything on made to order again. And that they learn their stupid fucking lesson this time and stop doing con shit and just release everything online as EE's.
FedEx just updated me that I got a delivery estimate for July 28th for Butta and Gurd. Hype.
>>9185026Which means BBTS won't be shipping them until mid August
>>918502630th for me.
>have the original SSG Goku already>don't like the hair on the new one>but like the colors on the giI DON'T NEED IT. I DON'T NEED IT. I DON'T NEED IT.
less than an hour to go boys. god bless
>>9184987There should be a 4chan-esque captcha every step of the way for these things, done for each figure.
What's everyone going to try to pick up tonight?Beerus and Whis for me.
>>9185036Is it not the same Gi?
>>9185036I'm getting the new one just to swap the original SSG head onto the new body. Do it, anon. It has better gi colors.
>>9185047I was originally only gonna get Goku and Beerus, but now I'm strongly considering getting all four... even though I have the original versions of all four. I wanna have an extra Beerus and Whis sitting with Goku at the table and eating.
My autism wants someone to make a new thread for tonight's event, but I know we're only on page 4.
Less than 45 min until disappointment everyone! Can't wait to pay BBTS scalper prices.
>>9185071Just let this one fill up with preorder drama then we can have a clean one for the actual exciting stuff tomorrow, the reveals.
Is there some sort of live stream from Tamashi for reveals or are we waiting for people to post pics here when it happens? I remember a vid from last where they had the life size figuarts ssb goku and vegeta.
>>9185086There’s a website for it, not sure if they’ll do a stream again. It’s not until tomorrow 10AM pdt, though.
>>9185036A slightly different gi is not worth it.
>>9185092people here have severe mental illness. they need 4 versions of the same figure
>>9185097You might be projecting.
>>9185097Technically most figures are the same because they re-use the Goku/Vegeta body's so much. By that logic you need an SROE and nothing else, buddy.
With the reveals being this close I'm now getting that feeling it might not live up to the hype. Thinking back to the last big set of reveals from last year I didn't actually want much of it. There were some cool out of nowhere drops like Cooler, SS4 and the androids that kinda saved rhe year for me. Hopefully I'm wrong and we get some hype stuff.
oh boy i can't wait for them to reveal videl. then i'll finally be able to recreate all her iconic scenes like...
>>9185103>>9185109impulse autists spotted.
>>9185145Wrong Videl though. Name one thing Videl (forma coleta) ever did besides giving me a boner.
>>9185048It's the same gi, but the colors are different. It's a darker shade of orange on the new one.>>9185092I know. I just like the colors and I hate how it's locked to a fucking event exclusive.
>>9185165That ain't ki brutha
>>9185177>>9185145oh boy i can't wait to recrate videl's best moments using Ki and getting the shit kicked out of her truly a character worth making a figure out of
Someone needs to make a new thread noooow
>>9185171>>9185177>facesitting>brappingI said BESIDES giving me a boner.
>>9181426Yeah we getting Cooler in August most people literally just because brain dead and forgot that Import sites are still a thing you can use for P Bandai shit like Okini Land
