Can't wait for Gundamku.
hope we get a yardrat or bombet jacket Goku with this color hair
>>9466725>Hair doesn't match eyebrowsThis triggers me
>>9467000I know that feel. The fact that awakening Goku has yellow hair with orange shading and brown eyebrows always drove me insane.
>>9467406Gets so blown the fuck out he posts retaliation in a dead thread. Dance puppet dance.
>>9466725Feel like we can hit a better/more accurate shade than this
>comic con>Goten and Trunks are comical charactersIt's time.
This part broke off of my UI. It can go back on, but it can slide off. Also, the top of the knee joint will now not bend as easily, I guess because the part that broke help do that. Is there any way to fix this? Someone recommended glue. I tried to push it in really tight but for some reason it didn't want to go in all the way. It was weird.
>>9466725I hate this Goku fave so much especially the print for the fave. The hair looks bad. Probably the lighting.
>>9467647just heat up the plastic of the lower leg and pop it back in. if it doesn't stay on, repeat but add glue
>>9467647Vietnam did this
>>9464508Let me help you out foreign bro. If you buy anything from Japan and use airmail option you should always buy 2 or 3. Then you sell the extras, especially high demand items. Usually you can get the item you wanted and make some extra money.
>>9467684>scalpingCant you get a real job?
>>9467726I have one. That is how I can afford extra. I dont think getting extra is scalping. Maybe 10 or something. Sorry about upsetting you.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lfkfy4rurQkinda hyped for ssj4 now
Do you think this guy is coming at some point? Heroes or not, he's been pretty well received, and its not a bad design compared to others from the series. I think the god form with Trunks would be a pretty good seller.
>>9467809SSG with its twink gimmick was pretty dumb, glad toei/bandai retconned it
>>9467809Slim chance if he plays a major role in a console released game. If not then no chance.
Got SSJ4 yesterday from HLJ and he's so fun, bros.
>>9467836Can he do a proper kamehameha with the new mold they used for him?
>>9467858why wouldn't he? Even comes with a kamehameha piece
>>9467680Except he was made in China
>>9467858Hands to the side or forward?
>>9467809After getting him in the game, I want a figure of him.
>>9467809It'd be nice. Wouldn't mind Xeno Goku, Xeno Vegito, Towa, Mira, Supreme Kai of Time getting figures
>>9467858Just did a quick thing to show that his hands can indeed go that far forward.
I can understand people who were hoping SS4 Goku being a smidge bigger, but is it just me or is he the best Goku we've gotten thus far?
>>9468038Well, he certainly gets points for not just being another Goku in an orange Gi. It feels like most people already still like Awakening Goku, or the UI Gokus most, and they're the most different from the standard Gi Gokus too.
>>9468038In terms of accuracy he absolutely is. I’m not as much of a fan of the new hips as I thought I’d be though.
Mine just shipped from amiami. Should arrive in a couple weeks.Not really feeling the new hips and knees either
>>9468038Na he's just really unique from the other ones so he stands out more. He has Demoniacal Fit levels of QC from a review of seen of him (leg is loose as fuck). Though to be fair Bandais QC is basically Demoniacal Fit level at this point. Ultra Instinct is the best Goku purely in terms of the figure.
>>9468120I hate when people talk about Ultra Instinct Goku and not specify if their talking about the Event Exclusive Sign version or Mastered Ultra Instinct one. Which one is it?
>>9468042Awakening has a nice overall appearance but it's mostly due to the body. This head really ain't it anymore.
When faggots when!!??
>>9468128To this day, I still wonder how this figure managed to be the only SS release in this line ever to not have yellow eyebrows. It's the MC of the series in one of his most iconic looks and they fucked up on his faces and didn't even correct it on the re-releases.
>>9468120My leg isn't loose, but my bicep swivel is loose and turns too easy and the feet are reallt weird. Be sometimes will lean forward and I have to adjust the feet properly. Also, his head is loose, but maybe that's the hair?
>>9467796His hips are so fucked. Why didn't they just give him 2m0 hips?
>>9468253How are they fucked?
>>9468154I'm guessing the feet and leaning problem is because the ankles have more range. If you got one with loose ankles he'll lean forward if you posed him with more weight in front.
>>9468038UI is still the best imo
>>9468253because 2.0 hips also suckthese hips are better in concept, except the way the thigh part creeps up on the hip part on the side needs to be a little less separate feeling AND they need to improve this engineering's backward movement range.
>>9468356Only thing that sucks about 2.0 hips is that they can’t do splits, but who tf is posing their characters doing splits?? if you factor in the backwards movement, other gokus have more leg range than SS4 goku
>>9468127when we say Ultra Instinct Goku we mean when hair, when we say Omen Goku we mean black hair
>>9468253Its like one of the reviewers said they were just experimenting with a bunch of stuff with this release. I did like how he came with the extra hands that peg into the blast effect I hope every release with a blast effect will have that going forward.
they're having another release, right?
>>9468437Probably not, maybe 2.0s eventually.
>>9468437Yes. Either as 2.0’s or as “improved color” versions like 4th Frieza.
>>94683562.0 hips are awesome for baggy pants. They only looks weird on characters with skin tight clothes. Ssj4 Goku looks weird with those hips.
>>9468498The knees are kinda meh and the hips look overengineered.The SS4 legs are far from perfect but I think they're a good start. They just need more backwards movement and the thighs need to be more flush to the hips.
>>9468389Who's we? Nah, they're both called UI and you have to be more precise. Typing in 4 more letters shouldn't be too hard.
>>9468515I've encountered this issue countless times with people and not just on here. When I go to ask which one they're talking about, sometimes it's MUI or the EE. I fucking hate it.
>>9468515One is called Ultra Instinct and the other is called Ultra Instinct -Sign-. It's nobody's fault but yours that you're too stupid to differentiate between the two when its literally printed on the boxes.
>>9468460I feel like its the Frieza situation where they pass their threshold for "good enough" and just get some new paint or maybe some new heads at best. Pic related was recently revealed and he's still got those older style hips look on the jeans. They'll prob look at the androids and think its good enough.
>>9468538It's also nobody's fault but yours that you're too stupid to understand what I said here >>9468519 (You) # I've ASKED people before to clarify things, and I get mixed answers. They're both ultra instinct Gokus. Just do a Google search of "Ultra Instinct" and tell me what the results are. I'm not even gonna do it myself because I'm confident your ass is gonna get BOTH blue shirt and shirtless UI Goku.
>>9468542Yeah I expect that's the more likely path they'll take. I hope not though.
>>9468542Zatch is oversized. I guess they just refuse to make properly sized kid characters.
>>9468592Wouldn't the plastic be really brittle?
>>9468560Not him but Silver Ultra Instinct is just called Ultra Instinct in the manga and show. The Black Haired one is called Sign or Ultra Instinct Sign.If people just say UI then chances are they mean Silver hair. And although Mastered Ultra Instinct is purely a fan term, just "Ultra Instinct" has always had either Omen or Sign following it as referred to by fans. The implication of "Mastered Ultra Instinct" also implies there is no Ultra Instinct as it would be just MUI or UI Sign or Omen as well but that's just a personal gripe.
>>9468740Need to update this one. Not pictured is SS3.
>>9468624they made Yoda so it is possible.
>>946843718 should have a few more, can't figure any more for 17 besides his gt look
What time is the SDCC?
>>9468918Pretty sure it should be open now.
>>9468951they really trying to sell the Cell Shell
>>9468951Are they seriously going to butcher Cell's height just to fit him in that retarded accessory no one wanted?
>>9468592>Zatch is oversizedprove it
>>9468951>>9468956They really trying to sell the cell shell...
>>9469005Probably as they made Guldo a statue.
>>9469005Where do you get the idea that he's supposed to fit in it?
>>9469005Don't think he even fits at best you're probably sticking a leg in there to make it look like he's coming out of it.
>>9469005It's not even the right size.
>>9469104Funny that Super basically retconned any reason Cell even needed to revert to his larval stage to use the time machine. According to DBS he could have simply pressed the button to make the machine work, hold onto it while it does its thing and then simply let go once he arrives back in the past. Bam! No power lost from reverting = an even stronger Cell.
>>9468805That Yoda is also larger than he should be.
>>9468916Yea makes sense to do what we don't have yet for 18 than another of the same outfit. Far left to go with Semi Cell probably at some point.
doesn't seem there's anything new which I'm ok with we already have so many protos rn
>>9469202Look at that sassy hip thrust.
Anyone still looking to buy SSJ3 Goku?
>>9468385>Only thing that sucks about 2.0 hips is that they can’t do splitsbut they can. this was debunked in the last thread.
>>9469082these looks nothing like the figures
The doc is looking pretty good
>>9469202>Color scheme matches PC CellInteresting
>>9469123Cell appears in Super?
>>9469276Seems like they sized it after PC Cell too. I'm not optimistic about 2.0 at this point.
>>9469266The shoulders! Wow
>>9469266He looks more finished than the Roshi.
>>9469164Sucks she never wears anything to show off an ass sculpt.
>>9468951Is Cell the same height as Zarbon KEK
>>9469266Sweet interchangeable brain to hat!!!That makes him and insta-buy for me.
>>9469225Why the fuck do they keep posting the cell shell???? Lol somebody needs to do a mock up box for it. They trying to sell that thing separately?? I wouldn't put it past the stingy fuckers.
>>9469202This sucks. Not lanky enough somehow. Sucks because they nailed evil buu's proportions so well..
>>9469312Why wouldn't they sell it separately? It's pretty big.
>>9469317Theres always one.Besides you samefagging to this to try to prove me wrong - but nobody asked for it nor do they want it. The cell shell can go to hell.
>>9469123Dude calm down. That was a last ditch effort before being perma-erased. I doubt cell wanted to risk it all on a theory, guy. Calm your tonnami man tits.
>>9469326>samefagging????>but nobody asked for it nor do they want it.Don't buy it then? There's a lot of figures I don't want so I don't buy.
>>9469326I think it would be fair if it came with some hands or faces or some shit to be used with Imperfect Cell, but I definitely wouldn't buy just the shell personally. If they wanted to go above and beyond, they could make an articulated larvae Cell to go with the shell but I don't know who the fuck would want that
My second Dragon Ball Z S.H Figuarts so far.Now I need Kakarot and Gine to complete the family (I have Raditz).
>>9469312>>9469339It's basically a cool accessory you can display on a shelf or with Cell, I don't see the big deal. I'd buy it if it were cheap enough.
>>9469340You'll need their grandkids too
>>9469123Atleast it's easy to handwave an explanation.
>>9469340Careful with his wrists. He's a great figure though.
>>9469123>”oh no I can’t fit in the time machine! Lemme trying opening the lid, pressing the button, closing the lid, and then hanging on to one of the machines legs and hope that works”Why would cell try this? He’s supposed to be the ultimate life form not retarded like you
>>9469340>(I have Raditz)I still cry...
>>9469398Yeah, definitely. Thanks man.>>9469440To be honest, I'm a little sad that mine came with the pegball joint "fixed" in the hand. So everytime that I replace it's hand the pegball joint quits the arm and I have to carefully remove it, without breaking it, to change the hand. :/ Sorry for my English. I don't know too much.>>9469483I paid 115 USD for mine. In the aftermarket in my country now it's 213 USD.(650 BRL / 1200 BRL)
>>9469338be patient, he's retarded
Finally got these 4. Anyone get thei cooler from P-Bandai yet? Mines getting freezer burn in a container somewhere.
>>9469551FedEx says December 6th for me.
>>9469277Once during the BoG arc with Goku doing mental training and once in the Future Trunks arc where Goku and Krillin are training.>>9469335I'm not mad though? I just remembered the bit about the Cell Shell and why it appeared in the series due to Cell needing to revert to fit inside the machine. That also made me remember back to the bit of when Goku and Vegeta held onto the same machine in Super and survived with no ill effect. It was just meant to be a bit of a funny observation.>>9469466>Why would cell try this?I never said he would have tried it, merely that the DBS arc in question shows he could have if he had known beforehand.>retarded like youNow that's just mean.
>>9469350It's not a big deal, all I said was I wouldn't want it myself. It's the other guy(s) making a big deal out of it
Cell Shell is a wasted slot.
>>9469645I second you. I was excited for perhaps Mirai Gohan. He's my fav character.
>>9469565I know, I was being cheeky. Stupid writing vices lol.
>>9469645Yup they should give us another Bulma instead
>>9469555Did you get another ship delay for December or just the tracking notification?
>>9469645how much do you think they'll change for it?
>>9469551I have several of these stands. I have to use the clamps with the third arm/leg because the regular clamps do such a shit job of holding the figure in flight/action poses.
>>9469555That's odd. I haven't heard about Cooler for almost a month, when I received an email saying he'd be shipping somewhere around now, however, a couple days ago I got an email saying that Tien and Chaotzu would be shipping in like a week.
>>9469495Water your plant!
>>9469225Dodoria and Zarbon releases pushed back?
>>9469684$300 on P-Bandai. Pre-orders open in December, will ship in August 2024.
>>9468740>>9468789>Too many to pose rn. But here's my favorite one. SROE is still my favorite version desu. Which one is your favorite goku so far? Cant wait until SS4's arrive!
>>9469645Cantvwait for cell shell. Im ok with it not coming with any accessories, just look at how big it is!! Plus Im happy they shrunk furst form cell down to fit better with the cell husk.
>>9467809Once we get into Heroes stuff, he'll get made.
>>9467836Does it headswap with any of the other gokus?
>>9469645I really think it's going to be packed with his first form, just unassembled. Like the Freiza pod or Burter. It's a non-articulated, hollow chunk of plastic, I can't see them selling it separately. Plus, it would drive the price of the figure up for them. I personally just want the figure, so I hope I'm wrong.
I don't know what's going on with the majin symbol, but this looks pretty good. I think it's the best hair on a Majin Vegeta head so far, and the Awakening Goku head they just released was nice as well, and only $23. What do you fuckers think?
>>9469763Guldo, not Burter.
>>9469765going to wait until 2026 for the 2.0
>>9469715Karen Goku, the paint job is amazing and shimmery, the extra hair is also awesome and more figures need to come with something similar.
>>9469771>Karen GokuDucking autocorrect.
>>9469774>"I wanna speak to your manager.....TIMES TEEEEEEEN!"
I'm pretty bummed out about Imperfect Cell being so short. It doesn't even look like he'll be Jiren height when he should be Super Buu height. You can usually count on them to make big antagonists big too but he looks smaller than Zarbon. Was really looking forwarx to him too but now idk.
>>9469715Recently got SS3, so I'm digging him right now. I'd say SROE might be my favorite though.
Figure of the year for me, also holy shit that was the fastest DHL I've had yet
>>9469704No. US events show US release dates.
>>9469918awesome! looks great. nin-nin just shipped my 2nd order so should get them all soon!!
>>9469904The hair is so fucked. Wow.
>>9469771Kaio Fist Goku is probably my favorite Goku at the moment. His swappable hairs are awesome.
>>9469918How can we be sure you didn't spray the hair with matte finish?Just kidding. Looks great and I'm glad you are enjoying it.
damn, i just wanted to get figures from original Dragonball but i see kid Goku figure was already release and now it's pain in the ass to find him, at least i got kid Chi-chi and soon young Bulma
>>9470168I feel you. Hopefully we get a new version of Kid Goku soon. You can't go wrong with any of the Bulma figures though all of them are really well done.
>>9469340>gine>muh family jor-el bardockDBS fans are the cringest
>>9470307Bardock has always been a brilliant scientist
>>9470376Average fighter though
>>9470307>Gine>DBS Absolute retard. Gine originates from DB: Minus. You anti-Superfags are always so dumb.
>>9466725This face/head is an shf and not a bootleg? Hahhahahahaha
>>9467796From left to right, 1,2 and 5 look like absolute shit. Bandai really stopped caring huh?
>>9470450The first 2 are bootlegs lmao
>>9470114>The hair is so fucked. Wow.They never resculpted it from the 1.0.
>>9469715The best and only Goku someone needs.
>>94704501 and 2 are bootlegs
>>9470453Yeha that's what I thought, they looked like bootlegs. Why would anyone buy those kek
>>9470438Every anti-Superfag I know is also a huge GTfag. Coincidence? Probably not. Just salty retards mad their shit isn't canon.
>>9470466not him but gt sucked, but super sucks so hard it makes gt look decent in retrospec
>>9470119FedEx says I should get mine by tomorrow, but I'm doubtful.
>>9470491Niether GT or Super are all bad.
>>9470502Cell and Buu are also pretty bad. Freeza's saga really goes belly up at the end. The fighting is so boring.
>>9470438Whatever, it's the same shit with different smell>>9470466>Just salty retards mad their shit isn't canon.Dude, really? You made me cringe so hard, I'll never understand why some ppl would hate something just because it isn't cannon or/and love obviously bad things just because it is, what the fuck...>>9470491This
>>9470545"Cringe" yourself back to le reddit, zoomzoom.
>>9470466>>9470466>Every anti-Superfag I know is also a huge GTfagMore like the other way around.>Just salty retards mad their shit isn't canon.Because of this kind of shit
>>9470554I don't speak underage, but have a good day too
Vid of the proto at SDCC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=103Iq41yQrY
>>9470557Clearly you do, with your zoomer language that only tards use.
>>9470526Most of Z is trash, after OG DB the franchise took a nosedive
>>9469645>slotsHow many double releases have we gotten this year? Slots aren’t a thing anymore
>>9470307>>9470491>>9470526>>9470630Do some of you even like this series at all? Every bit of it is listed as "shit", or "trash" between these 4 posts.
>>9470650I often question whether some here like this line at all too when just about every figure gets labeled as "shit" regardless of how it looks.
We had a really solid release line up in 2021 its gonna be hard to top next year. We know the movie figures are probably gonna take up a few months so we're not off to a good start. Wonder if they've got a Broly like heavy hitter merch character still in their back pockets for the movie.
>>9470675They just need to repeat this year formula, SS4 Vegeta, 2nd form Cell, Android 20, another Frieza Form, hell King Vegeta or Canon Bardock, kid Buu, one Gohan or Trunks for mutt characters and people will eat this shit up
>>9470650Pretty much all of DB is good except GT. GT tried to both capture the original DB spirit of being more light hearted and adventure-ey, and when that failed, tried to capture the Z spirit of being a battle shonen, and failed miserably at doing both. It was poorly planned, poorly executed, and all around just poor.The only good thing about the entire series is the SSJ4 transformation, and that idea has pretty much been dropped wholly in favor of more rainbow hair colors by Super.
>>9470675>hard to top>1st form Cell>Gero which also means fatboy is going to be made too>Zarbon>Dodoria>probably going to be a Broly in the next Super movie because he was there for a frame or two2022's releases, assuming they get them out on fucking time, is gonna shit all over this years. What did we have this year? Hit, Cooler, and SSJ4. That was the only good stuff.
>>9470712If you care for Dodoria and Zarbon I would think you would have at least appreciated Recoome, Burter and 1st form Frieza this year. There was also Raditz and Bardock which were long time requested figures that both came out pretty sweet.
>>94707161st form was good, but the Ginyu Force was a no buy thanks to missing a member. Even fucking Tien got his little ghostface butt buddy an articulated figure this year, but the Ginyu's didn't get a full 5 member squad, they got 4 and a fucking figurine. That docks them a point, at least, for shitty carelessness in a premium figure line.
>>9470716Bardock was rife with QC issues. Highly wanted yes, but having to play QC lotto with it was retarded. I had to buy two of the damn things before finding one that wasn't fucked by QC.
>>9470650I know at least a couple of us were just lying to make the other posts look like morons lol I like all of Dragonball except Heroes
>>9470708We're definitely not getting all those next year especially not King Vegeta or canon Bardock. Zarbon is April and for the rest of the year we're looking at the likes of Yamcha, Proud Prince, Gero, Imperfect Cell, Roshi and the 5 movie figures. Could be 1 or 2 surprises thrown in. There's also SS2 that might be a cheap Goku but the Super Hero Goku might fill that for 2022.
>>9470750Movieku is probably gonna be another $60 one, like the last Movieku.
>>9470750Movie figures are all a skip for me, will be some empty months.
>>9470650Only Dragonball up until the second tournament arc. The second Krillin died the whole series went to shit. Goku is an alien? Fucking garbage trash.
>>9470754The fuck are you talking about? The last movie Goku was SSB Goku, and he was one of the welfare Goku releases.
>>9470789The series went to shit as soon as Bulma showed up. A super strong monkey boy surviving in the wild was fun, fuck all that grand adventure martial arts shit.
>>9470709Don't try and include super with DB/Z, it's fucking garbage as well
>>9470903nah, your opinion is shit
>>9470650Welcome to Dragon Ball general, the most retarded fanbase of fags who hate their own franchise
>>94706752021 was one of the worst years in the line. are you insane?
>>9470844Fuck you, the series was ruined when I turned the page and paper cut my finger on the cheap ass jump paper they print that shit on. It really hurt and ruined books forever.
>>9470940>Bardock>First form Frieza>Raditz>Finished Ginyu Force>Cooler>SS4 GokuNah man, it was the shit
>>9471025He's probably the guy who pisses and shits his pants every time a new figure is revealed and it isn't Goten, Trunks, or Kid Buu.
>>9470844So you like 5 minutes of the series, noted.
>>9470497Mine says the 2nd for delivery, holding out hope. Ordered mine on March 4th, almost 8 months to the day is a long fucking time to wait for something you want really bad.
I've been a fan of the franchise for over 18 years now. I enjoy every entry into the series including games, heroes etc. But honestly it went to shit as soon as I saw goku, he's just the worst fucking character I wish they just didn't have him in the show.
>>9471025>bardockqc issues>first form freezafaces look terrible and were inaccurate>raditzjobber, goes with nothing in the line. saiyan saga vegeta is an OC design. no saiyan saga goku. pointless release.>Finished Ginyu ForceBurter fingernails not painted. Guldo, not even a figure. disgraceful>Coolerdecent release, lacking in accessories.>SSJ4 GokuUnder-sized, crappy looking faces, new hips a strict downgrade. the prototypes revealed have all been of low quality. Kid Gohan and Krillin in Namek Armor are over-sized. Imperfect Cell looks to be highly under-sized. Freeza not receiving a proper 2.0. Roshi Super is such a dull release, people forget it was even shown. Dr. Gero fell flat because people wanted Trunks. this was one of the worst years in the line, arguably the single worst one and next year doesn't look better. anyone who thinks this year was anything but shit is just a mindless consumer.
>>9471141>crappy looking facesgo and stay go
>>9471141Atleast Launch had a great ass sculpt.

>>9471164I agree with almost everything you said, except the Ginyu Force, but I didn't buy them, so I don't have a dog in that fight. I can at least acknowledge that they nailed them. Raditz, Frieza, and Bardock were big wants for me, and all 3 are pretty great.
Did people seriously miss out on some of the best releases of the line because of muh statue autism?Or this cope for not having money to preorder on p bandai
>>9471234He'd be a fun toy for picture taking even outside of DB. Hope his tail articulates well.
>>9471141>Dr. Gero fell flat because people wanted Trunkswe have a couple trunks alreadypretty hyped for gero, not gunna lie
>>9470925Super is objectively awful on all fronts.
This is the only SS4 who needs a figure.
His head is cracking me up
>>9471154SS4 is a bit taller in that pic though.
>>9471154Is Imperfect Cell the correct size too anon?
>>9471465News for you, if you haven't figured it out by now with this line, but you size queens are never going to be happy.
>>9469763I agree, I've been thinking this is their plan the whole time. I think part of the reason he is undersized/small is because they can further cheap out, and save space in the box for the shell to justify the $100+ release. I can't see anyone buying that Shell stand alone unless it's like 20 bucks and this line isn't going to waste their time/slots with something of that price point. I
>>9471308Some of us have standards and aren't mindless little piggies who just gobble up the slop that Bandai throws out for us.
If anyone here missed out on SS3 Goku, Gamestop has him on their website for Retail (61.99). Didn't think I'd end up seeing him there.https://www.gamestop.com/collectibles/figures/products/bandai-spirits-dragon-ball-z-super-saiyan-3-son-goku-6-in-figure/295888.html
>>9471522why did you post this here? I was in the middle of ordering 20 of them. God damn it.
>>9471521The Ginyu force figures are good thoughThe biggest flaw is Burter's nails not being painted
>>9470789>The second Krillin died the whole series went to shit. Goku is an alien?Those two things happened quite far apart from each other.
>>9471522Watch retards complain how they didn’t get one even thought this will be here til tomorrow. This was how I got Super Buu. Some anon posted a link to Amazon who had one on sell. Considering what it’s worth now I got a good deal.
>>9471666Thank goodness it appears they are doing away with that hideous torso cut from the promo pic.
>>9471693What are you talking about? Its obviously still there...
>>9471665>>9471666>new shit hips>torso cutdropped. 2022 looking just as bad as 2021
>>9471522I'd be more excited if he didn't look like shit>>9471709>torso cutWdym? If you're talking about the ab crunch, he's had that since the promo pics, so why complain now? Also the new hips look better than the 2.0, I don't get your point.
>>9471268>Raditz, Frieza and Bardock were all big wants for me>RaditzFUCK P-BANDAI.
For me, it's BardockThe best 2021 release
>>9471416Wait what the fuck is going on with the purple part? The other Frieza heads didn't look like that, right? I sold my ToP Frieza and I can't remember
>>9471741No, it doesn't look like that, no idea what's going on with that shit.
>>9471416>>9471741>>9471770It honestly looks like its assembled wrong. Like the purple part was glued on backwards, or something.
>>9471693>thinking the proto ever changes after pre-order
>>9471234I want him more than first form
>>9471709This is just the reality of the line. With inflation, and things being more expensive to produce and ship , they are sacrificing in quality since a lot of consumers of these figures just eat up anything you put out and dont give a fuck about every figure having a blatant QC issue. they would probably bitch if the figures started costing $70-75 on average though. The high point of the line was the year with the Broly movie figures and Super Buu. The figures they put out now are closer to Demoniacal Fit quality than to figures during that peak like Super Buu and Broly. The Frieza force figures were the last figures it seemed they actually gave a fuck about and were committed to putting out hightier sculpts(though most of them had common QC issues as well).
>>9471416Weird how they didn't make this one match the new 1st form Frieza.
>>9471666I'm going to miss 2.0 hips.they looked great on baggy pants characters. These kinds of hips definitely have a place in the line. Jiren looks great with them. Kefla probably should have had something similar.
>>9471844I think you're looking at it with a bit of rose-colored glasses. With the same critical view on the new figures I'd conclude Mr. Satan and Super Buu's torso came out more glossy than the protos. My Buu also had 1 leg longer than the other. My Full Power Broly's joints weren't exactly very tight either. Gogeta's nose was strangely long and there was the "wonky eye" thing. Android 21's balance was bad. Saiyaman's cape is shit.Generally speaking Vietnam's productions have had more frequent mention of QC issues but they've also majorly upped production due to increasing demand during a year where everything's fucked. That said the line has never been free from "issues" in the first place, not even at its supposed "peak". Question is how heavily do you let that weigh? These are still just 50-70$ figures, we're still in the lower/cheaper end of the collecting realm here. Expectations have gone up too much.>>9471858It's a lazy re-use of the much older 2013 Frieza mold. They just refuse to redo Frieza properly.
>>9471522Thanks! Got him
>>9471709>new shit hipsthey're better, bandai just needs to keep working on them to make them a bit more flush and work in backwards movement
do they used this same technology for DB figuarts
>>9472015Lmao no. The Kamen Rider stuff is essentially the highest end of the entire line. People here love eating their Gokus which barely do anything to change how it plays and looks.
>>9471873Yea they worked pretty well on Jiren cause his pants were black so the gaps weren't as noticeable compared to orange. The extra flap piece helped on the baggy guys I think the way they did Kefla looked fine but need to see how it'll articulate.
>>9471873They still use them for Gero. Probably will for 19 too.
>>9472142this irks me the mostif they want to go with a new design, they need to stick to it, but going back and forth is just going to be awkward
Anyone else extremely disappointed with SS4 Goku? Can't even look at him anymore, these hip gaps make me sick to my stomach.
>>9472017>multi-billion dollar worldwide franchise>McDonald's tier quality>karate bugmen that only exist in Japan>top shelf god tier qualityHow the fuck does Bandai continue to exist when clearly it's run by retards?
>>9472205Because Bugmen make them more money.
>>9471873>>9472106You do realize the hips are the same, they just *look* different, right? Same engineering and everything.
>>9472175They probably have different people in charge of the figures and they make the call on how to do something. Whoever made the new Zatch figure decided to go this route rather than what the DB guy decided to do with 17's pants.
>>9472218Even different ones within the DB line.There's probably a reason they're never credit the sculptor and people joke about having an inter do some sculpts.
>>9472218Figure prototypes usually have to be given the ok by the manager. But yeah. they probably just look at each character and design them in whatever way they think is fitting. Another thing to keep in mind is we probably don't see these prototypes come through in order of development. For example we know First Form Cell was already a prototype a year and a half before he was finally shown off. It's likely enough that figures like Dr. Gero were already in the works at the same time.
>>9472236This is correct, sometimes they need to sit on stuff for years before they get the OK from the licensor to do something. IIRC we saw the Sailor Moon SHF debut in 2012 and she was prototyped up and ready to go in 2009, but the licensor said wait until the anniversary. So when you have a figure that's proto'd behind updated, standard engineering... that's what you get.
>>9472214really? even with DB figuarts having international appeal?
>>9472275Yup. Although DB has been catching up in the last 2-3 years.
>>9472284damn. those kamen rider figuarts must sell a shitton in japan.
>>9472284I forgot if I read it in the db threads or another but someone was saying some kamen fans were starting to get worried that db was catching up and they wanted figuarts to stay being known for the kamen stuff. Not sure if that's true but db is definitely doing well recently.
>>9472320They are getting quite close. First half results of fiscal year 2022 has DB even slightly ahead. If the line continues its current success I would imagine DB catches up pretty soon.
>>9469266Still can't quite believe we are getting gero. Raditz was pretty special, as were the ginyu force, but getting zarbon, dodoria and gero is going to be incredible!
>>9472332Pokemon is far lower than I would expect. Wow. I thought One Piece was more popular than DB in Japan now.
>>9472362If that's just from Bandai, it's understandable.
>>9472362I don't think Bandai has done all that much Pokemon merch.
>>9472196local man realizes figures have articulation
>>9472351The team manager did say he wanted to go much deeper into the line, so I think we can expect pretty complete rosters for all sagas eventually.
>>9472362>I thought One Piece was more popular than DB in Japan now.It is.
>>9471880I mean, even with the reuse, they could have had their purple parts match better. That would be a good reason to get the new one atleast.
>>9472218See, these hips honestly look fine with tight clothes and shot. It's the baggy clothes that looks weird.
Who does this Goku go with anyways, is it Cooler?
>>9472656the biggy clothes would be fine if not for the way the thigh is higher up on the side but also hovers away from the hip piece.
>>9472675Cell games. This is Goku (and Gohan) after the time chamber where they’re always in SS form.
>>9472683Is the figure rise Cell any good? A 2.0 could be years away
>>9472675Super saiyan Goku in his cell and buu saga gi. I honestly really like the body on SROE Goku. The super saiyan head looks great on all of the torn up shirt Gokus I have.
>>9472683Man I regret not getting the damaged version of Gohan. 2.0 when?>>9472690I will need to try some headswaps.
>>9472699>Man I regret not getting the damaged version of Gohan. 2.0 when?I'm shocked it hasn't happened yet. Same with the Trunks 2.0.
Why does it seem like Bejita looks better than everyone's?
>>9472690Cool, can you post some pics, anon?
>>9472675No one. this line doesn't care about synergy or accuracy/
>>9471416>Head-dome is glued on backwards>rough paint on the shoulders>they couldn't even be arsed to make the sockets for his shoulder joints white, they just cause them in the same purple as his shoulder joints>they made him glossy>they didn't even keep to pale teal-grey skintone to match his anime colours, they went right back to making him white like the TOP versionThis is gonna be the laziest release in the line.
I like this swap the best, this will be what goes with Cooler whenever he gets here.
>>9472833>wheneverIf anon. You mean if.
>>9472833I agree, that seems to be the best body to go with that head looks wise.
So is Yamcha or Gero getting the accessory?
>>9472831At least it's a budget one. I ended up passing on him, maybe we'll get a true 2.0 someday
>>9473056i don't think we ever will. there's been multiple chances.
>>9468916Would 17 be the Buu saga color or the GT color?
>>9473038Both! I imagine yamcha will come with an interchangeable back plate or clip like with vegettos light sword and gero will have the hand.I'm hoping the reason for the yamacha and vegeta delays is because of gero and 19 were coming and they wanted to get all the right accessories designed before they opened POs.With zarbon coming so quick after dodoria I imagine 19 is coming soon. Thinking about it. I wonder if the Trunks delay is due to a mecha frieza being in the works?????
>>947282419 better be able to crunch like this!
>>9468128faces are better than the new ss goku though
>>9470675z broly 2.0 would be nice
Has anyone managed to get Nappa in this pose? I don't see how it's possible since his arms can barely come forward like that. (It's basically impossible for his fist to come close to his face. I have no idea what wizardry they used.)
>>9473475Probably camera angle, but you can shave the armor down too.
>>9473483You can get it pretty close without lifting the shoulder armor up. Be less of a poselet.
>>9473519>forcing a joint on creaking plasticno thanksBut i didn't actually have to move the armor up, since it's just the camera angle faking it.
>>9473475His fist isn't touching his face. Get it as close as possie to his shoulder armor and see if you can mimic it just by holding the figure and moving it around to switch perspectives. If you can, it's just camera angles. If you can't, shop magic. I never opened my OG Nappa so I don't know but now I'm curious.
>>9473522First of all mine didn't creek when I tried it. It was fine. Secondly they're fucking toys. It isn't just going to explode from you articulating it. You aren't forcing anything.
>>9473522See, you can get it fairly close. Not all the way. The armor gets in the way.
>>9473483Now this is a proper timestamp you fat retard.
>>9469645Not like the line is stopping anytime soon, you'll get your 60th Goku next time
>>9473038>>9473423Hope he comes with a sausage arm from his biggest moment in Cell saga.
Is the new Goku Black up anywhere aside from BBTS?
Haven't been in these threads for awhile so not sure if its been asked. Has anyone got their SS4 from bigbadtoystore yet? still waiting on mine
>>9474086US release dates are a month after Japan so expect it to ship late December.
>>9474092I'd add at least another month to that if it's coming to the US by containership.
>>9474086lol they haven't even got cooler in yet
It's finally here boys, based Anime-Export. Payed for shipping on Thursday, at my door by noon today. (Fuck DHL)
>>9474073Toydojo has him.
Will Cooler ship tomorrow?
>>9474495Doubt it. Fucking p-bandai and this unforseen circumstances is going really pissing in my cheerios lol. Seriously this fucker better ship before Christmas.
>>9474073Figurise has him for $40.
>>9474495No idea, FedEx has a shipping label created for mine, but it's been that way for days now.
>>9474594can't believe I watched(or at least listened) to that entire video. didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know. just going to wait for my boy to put out his video instead of wasting time with anymore say nothing snoozefest guys.
I didn't think they were going to put up any more figures on pbandai before the end of the month, but I waited anyway. Guess I'm getting Zarbon. Any Burgers out there its only good for two more hours from this post if you were waiting like I was.
>>9474594Ah okay so it’s not a 3.0 it’s just a stupid design choice. It’s missing the hip piece to hide the ugly joints and his ass so wide that it blocks all backwards movement.
When are they going to revisit the Saiyan Saga and give us beloved classics like Foot Fetish Goku and Flock of Seagulls Bulma?
>>9474936Absolutely based AnthonysCustoms Chad Enthusiast. The only reviewer who knows his shit. You're probably gonna wait 3-4 months for that review though.
>>9475102>muh double ball peg>muh shading>why did they do it like that>scale is “good enough”>some things I like aaand some things the could have done betterHonestly they’re all the fucking same
>>9474594>3.0 is seamless maymayfuck off Steve
>>9474936>>9475102Hey Anthony. Thanks for dropping by. How are your line of generic ninja figures coming along?
>>9474594The hips remind me of the weird imagination works Goku legs.
bros....its been like this for weeks. why do the japs make everyone suffer
that's a nice amount of accessories
>>9475520Didn't include the sword though. Whatever happened to that DF headset with the base set and accessories?
>>9475560You could make a whole chart of unreleased DF renders
>>9475440If P-Bandai is to be trusted and they aren't just going to perpetually push the date back, Cooler should be shipping soon. Tien will probably ship the month after him though.
>>9474936>Avatar is a buff manly dude>Real guy is a fat neckbeardEvery time.
>>9475440>>9475687I didn't order Tien but I already have a tracking number for Cooler. FedEx hasn't received it yet but I at least have something. It's been like that for about a week now, they initially told me Sunday as the ETA but it hasn't been picked up yet. My guess is FedEx needs to pick up some large order from P-Bandai.
>>9475687I got an email about a week ago saying Tien was shipping the second week of December.
>>9475691This made me curious so I looked this guy up, and he looks pretty normal to me. Buff? Can't really tell, but definitely not a fat neckbeard at least
>>9475875Does look like he didnt sleep for a month tho
>>9475440>why do the japs make everyone sufferJapan are the only ones getting the figures out to everyone. That's burgers making you suffer.
>>9475576You could say the same for bandai at this point, lol. What are we up to now, 15 or someshit? There are just as bad.
>>9475902Bandais are mostly guarantees though. They will complete Namek, they will do Cell stuff, they will complete the Z-fighters and they will cash in on the movie stuff. The only one I'd have doubts about is SS2 Goku since he kinda came and went for 1 event.
The DF renders are basically him going "hey would anyone be interested in this or is it a waste of time?". When he posts those WIP in hand pics then you know its probably coming, unless he gets btfo'd first like with the dbs 18.
how did they fuck up kefla so hard...i was so hyped for her
WHY IS THIS ALLOWEDKAIOKEN BLUE GOKU NEVER RELEASED IN EUROPE I AM MAD FUCK YOU BANDAI
>>9475440try not to be a filthy amerimutt
GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE GIVE ME GOKU KAIOKEN BLUE
>>9475953you fucked up by being a fan of a shit character,she got what she deserved.
>>9475955>>9475960sukcs to be you. shoulda ordered from p-bandai US and imported like the rest of us. i'll be getting mine shipped to the UK in April.
>>9475966but they released everything over here so fargot the clone goku from bandai eu and cooler from tamashi frso why no this one?
Are they still putting up a preorder this year or was this it for this year?
>waited so long ssj3 and ultra goku not up on tamashination fr anymoreNYOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>9475974>2015 trashChanged management and very much changed line by now. You know that very well though, you can drop the act.
>>9475969well in the promo video, unlike the previous 4 that were simply marketed as "event exclusives" the goku was the "NY comic-con exclusive", so it's possible it was made US exclusive like Zamasu.
>>9475974we finally got ssj4 goku! theres still hope that all of these will see the light of day eventually, in one form or another.
>>9475974The angel Goku and SS3 Vegeta were such weird choices over characters who haven't been made yet at the time. I'd say those are probably gone for good, they'd more likely do stuff from heroes than go back to those.
>>9475974is it just me or was the old ssj4 goku a bit taller than normal goku?
>>9475974Holy fuck I don't even care at this point, give me super buu already my overlords
Just picked up my SS3 Goku. Pictures never quite capture how good the hair paint is on this guy. Kinda glad I waited for this to be reissued to pop my Goku cherry.
Having fun with monkey boy. Legs feel kinda loose tho
>>9475102More like AnthonysCuckstoms
>>9476217Nice pic suave dingus
