Advanced Colors Vegeta's eye lines are nowhere near as prominent as photos make it seem. He's a pretty solid release, nothing spectacular but the fills a necessary hole in the collection if you couldn't get the first version.
Don't people know Datong is making a Cell and Trunks figure, too? They are coming out soon, after the Frieza. Trunks will come with all the original accessories, faces, and hands that Bandai didn't include with the PCE Trunks, too. Datong showed off images of some of the mold tests when they released the images of the Frieza.
The Datong Frieza is FANTASTIC, also. Incredibly pleased with it.
Here are all the Datong mold tests for Cell and Trunks. They are coming.
Cell is supposedly getting a Premium treatment sometime in the future too.
Also, as much as it sucks that Premium Trunks comes with less faces and hands, at least half of the extra stuff the original release came with was practically unnecessary, since a lot of them were barely different from one another.
Alright. I need a second opinion on this.
I pre ordered SSGSS Vegeta a while ago but I've been recently thinking about cancelling it. He's pretty expensive and he doesn't even come with a base form head like SSGSS Goku does and has the same old mold as SSJ Vegeta, so is it worth the price?
If so, where can I pre order him for a decent price? I'm a huge fan of Vegeta btw but I just need some convincing that it's worth it.
Where do you have it preordered, and for how much?
Looks like he's not just a straight repaint of SSJ Vegeta, though, as his outfit is slightly different, so there are definitely different parts in the hips pelvis, legs, etc. at the very least.
He should come with a base form head though, like you said....
Big Bad Toy Shill. It's so fucking expensive on there.
I'm looking at the Vegeta on Blue Fin's website and the Figuarts website and it says nothing about a base form head. Just the 6 interchangable hands and 3 faces. I think that's a little ridiculous. SHF has really been skimping out on us lately. When was the last time we saw some really good accessories come with a figure?
I didn't think BBTS's price for SSGSS Goku and Frieza were too bad. $40 isn't bad for these figures, but I don't know why the hell they're gradually increasing their prices so much. And Goku came with quite a bit of stuff.
I at least feel like the figures should come with the alternate head, and a good deal of hands and faces.
I feel like Vegetto was probably the last really good figure who came with a lot of stuff. Extra head, like six total faceplates, lots of hands and stuff, and the energy sword effect piece. And he was only like, $35. Or that's what I payed for him off Amazon. I mean yeah....he is just the repainted Goku body again with some new feet or whatever, but I thought it was still pretty good.
BBTS's prices are just getting ridiculous. Especially for releases like Beerus, where he's a standard release, and they're charging a good $15~ more than he costs anywhere else...
Just letting people know that their only option isn't paying hundreds in scalper prices for figures they will be able to get for about $30 soon. I try to buy all legit releases, but if it means saving hundreds of dollars I'll grab a Datong.
Also, there isn't actually any evidence that Cell and SS3 Goku are getting PCE releases. The news people got all excited about comes from another toy forum, speculating about it all based on a very vague offhand remark by a Bluefin rep that doesn't actually work for Bandai or Tamashii. Bluefin reps have been off the mark in the past, when talked to at toy shows and cons. So, I still wouldn't count on getting a PCE for every figure. Even if they do make them, they aren't learning their lesson because the PCE are still web exclusives. :-/
The SSGSS Goku wasnt bad at all. I actually ordered him from BBTS and I'm satisfied with him. It's just these exclusive released they go crazy with the prices.
SHF could at least include a stand or effect pieces with more of their figures, especially lately. I think it's kind of fucked up that they're selling us a figure they know we're going to buy with little accessories and pieces, and still charge the $25-35 for stands and effects seprately.
We're just getting shilled left and right, anon.
I'm only speaking for myself when I say this, but I can definitely wait for a Cell re-release even if it doesnt happen.
I'm willing to spend the 45 dollars on the Trunks advanced color (compared to the 30 dollars on the Datong) if it's the genuine article, and that goes for any figure.
I have a bootleg Scouter Vegeta color variant and he's not bad. He's actually pretty awesome. He comes with the stand, blast effect, faces, hands, everything. His leg falls off easily but he's pretty good. But I also got a bootleg SSJ Goku and he's the worst piece of fucking shit I have ever laid my hands on.
Bootlegs are a risk I'm not willing to take anymore even if they are much more affordable.
Where is this interview with Adam Newman? I haven't seen any interviews with him confirming a PCE Cell. In the interview referenced on the forum, the person being interviewed mentioned a possible PCE Cell...but, then said Cell was getting a new figure with all new sculpt. That's not a PCE at all, then, it's a completely new figure. Also, said the figure would be out in May...but, I haven't seen anyone actually update their release dates to reference that. Just a couple things that didn't make sense.
But, if there is a new official interview that lists the source I would love to see it.
Prices for Japanese figures are getting a little higher, sure, but most import sites charge more for import figures because a lot of people are too dumb to figure out how to import from actual Japanese sites.
Plus, BBTS isn't so great anyway, because they markup the rarer or more desired figures a lot of the time anyway.
What's more, it is pretty fucking sad when they charge an additional premium just to make absolutely sure you don't get a mangled box.
If you know where to look online you can still get figuarts for not bad prices with free shipping. Might be a little more than amiami or other places but after you get it shipped from Japan it is around the same price. I remember when the yen hit rock bottom a couple years ago and I could get stuff from Japan for so cheap. Sucks that such a mess happened with Amazon and Bluefin.
I'm not saying you can't. Even easy sites like Amazon and Barns and Noble have pretty good prices on the standard-release figures. And if you're thrifty and have patience, you can score good deals even on some of the rarer figures.
The Yen-to-dollar exchange rate really started to tilt in our favor three or four years ago, certainly, but now those prices are starting to rise on the Japanese figures in the first place which more or less overtakes that good exchange rate. And someday, the exchange rate will even out, and what we'll be left with is horribly overpriced toys.
Awhile back, Figma and Figuarts were dirt cheap. 2000Y-3000Y per figure. Now it seems like each release is 5000Y-7000Y, and the figures actually come with less stuff than they did before. Sure, store discounts help, and the exchange rate is still in our favor, but we're still paying more than we really should.
I really want more movie villains. I love how the movies often had free-for-all battles with a bunch of characters getting to get some hits on the villains. .Right now I've got Broly taking on a bunch of characters at once, and because of his massive size it works perfectly. I'd love to see Final form Cooler, Super Android 13, Lord slug, Super garlic Jr., or Bojack. Most of them even have a pretty similar physique that can be reused (and in some cases, the Broly torso would be adequate).
It kinda ticks me off that they couldn't even give him crossed arms. They already have the molds done, it wouldn't even be as costly as extra faces. He crosses his arms for like 90% of the movie.
Personally, I don't think a policy which is basically "gib more money or we don't care about how fucked up your box is" should be supported, considering any decent company should have that as a standard.
Not to mention the fact that most retailers sell damaged-boxed figures at a discount (even if it is only a little bit) as opposed charging more for a good box.
Not to mention the fact that BBTS already charges more usually anyway.
And also, the handful of times that I have purchased figures them, I have never paid that stupid extra fee, and I've always gotten a box that was in perfect condition anyway.
Its just a way for them to gouge their customers more.
Oh I forgot you could read a thread to find out about information other than making another post that's been answered countless times, but thanks for contributing with something you could answer yourself because the toy has been out for fucking ages.
>my Frieza has been posted
First Form when?
I don't like super cyan, but should i buy super cyan goku for the costume and the base form head or should I just skip it?
I already have pic related for him to fight, but I also have regular ssj goku too
Pretty much every one of these figures has appreciated in value, aside from the ones that have been standard releases/rereleased time and time again (like Teen Gohan, Piccolo, SSJ Goku, etc) so there's really no reason to expect that these won't at least hold their value. If not go up a little.
MISSING PARTS CONFIRMED
THIS IS NOT A DRILL
PCE Trunks box revealed, has a different item tray
I know, but as someone who owns the first edition its disappointing. Granted all the hands are extra but it more justifies the price.
The box change is ass tho, prefer the older colors but we'll see if the in-hand paintjob is truly better.
This is like the third re-release of this Gohan. It's just the standard release one. Not the SDCC. I don't even know why they're bothering, since he hasn't really even become particularly rare or hard to find since his last re-release.
>don't include the guy who beat cell
it's my childhood all over again
so if that "awakening" goku is all about the moment he transforms, why are his clothes ripped that way?
having varying degrees of battle damage to choose from would be cool
pic related is closer to the moment he transforms
by the time the fight ends, his clothes are ripped even more than the "awakening" fig
Well, looking at the past "sold" auctions, he seems to pretty regularly go between $600 and $1000...more commonly on the lower end, but realistically, it looks like you could probably put it up for $700~$800 and it would sell fine.
It's based more so on this old piece of Manga artwork than any real specific scene in the series, although Goku did fight Frieza like thisat one point during the fight.
Datong have stepped up their game on this one. I don't have the official one to compare to, but it looks well painted and molded
>talking about the bootleg
so was I and I doubt the law cares about someone buying a fake toy, as you can buy fake toys literally everywhere in the world that has a chinatown
And yes, it's lillegal to manufacture copyrighted materials but it's not like China gives a shit.
I know this question has probably been asked, but is there ANY chance of a reissue of the original Final Form Freeza?
I want the little guy; however, I am not sure how sold I am on the Golden Form. Thoughts?
I saw a vid last night of a guy who posed them side by side and I could not tell the difference. He said all the joints were tight, paint was basically on point, and every accessory was there. Looking to be a really great figure.
Now, if Bandai wants to make a 100% frieza where he's jacked I'd love to buy that. His prior forms even moreso.
>mfw checking mine out he doesn't even have the paint flaw that erivera94 had
That was nearly shattered when the peg split in half when swapping heads, but then I realised they just clip together. The figure is fucking great. The right arm squeaks a little bit and that's pretty much the only flaw I've found. All in all it's 10/10 for a bootleg
I wonder when the Cell and Trunks datong will be out
Broly count? I wish we got his normal/ssj version but HIS POWER IS MAXIMUM won out
That said, what are the chances of getting this sexy bro?
I don't know what is considered popular enough or not to warrant a Figuarts.
I actually just finished the Frieza Saga the other day and watched that last night such cool fights.
>Mfw his mask snapped shut
That shit gets me so fucking hard in vidya and anime. Viewtiful Joe did that too and I loved that game.
So, how sinful would it be if they released a First Form Frieza and he didn't come with the floating chair?
is it just me or do frieza's faces look really bad? the one on the left isn't bad but the other 2 just don't look good
Am I a retard? How do you put the crossed arms on Frieza?
They look fine. I just wish there was a stern looking face or a laughing face.
Pop the arms off right under the shoulders, they're on pegs.
Ah. I guess they're just super tight on the Datong one. I tried removing the whole arm at first.
don't play with me like that. I need perfection in my life
>tfw you will never run for your life as Cell chases after you
>tfw you will never hear his laugh resonating in your ears as you try desperately to get away
>tfw you will never be cornered; unable to hide
>tfw you will never gaze upon his perfect body as he advances towards you
>tfw you will never ask him to let you go
>tfw he will never laugh at you and abuse you despite your pleads
Really, once you get him in hand, Cell does live up to his perfectness.
>you will never be forced to the ground in front of perfect cell and have all your clothes stripped off of you
>he will never extend his tail out towards you, opening the tip ever so slightly so that your penis can fit inside
>you'll never get to fuck the inside of perfect cell's moist tail as he laughs with that perfect voice
>you'll never blow a load up his tail which he'll then use to create cell jrs with your DNA
I was expecting vore, but I'm still sickened anyway.
Bit by the z bug.
The ressurection f dfx figures are fucking beautiful too. I love their manga style sculpting. May have purchased goku, gohan and vegeta. Theyll be here in like 2 months, fucking woo.
These 2, theyre about the same height as the figuarts
>dfx figures are fucking beautiful too. I love their manga style sculpting.
someone on sideshow collectors made a custom SSJ God Goku using the head from the dfx figure. looked really nice.
Hope so I'm gonna have to order that shit because at this point I'd suck someone's dick for a Perfect Cell sooner than pay the $200+ bucks for him on ebay.
It's some real horse shit that the Figuarts Cell and Broly are really the only good Cell and Broly figures ever made and are more than $200 now for either resale.
I'm dealing in bullshit dying Canabucks monopoly money on top of the huge prices already. Now that I look at it Broly's around $150 compared to Cell's $200-$220.
At least Piccolo is reasonable as fuck. But it's hard being a manchild trying to fulfill childhood obsessions by buying all the cool toys no that we never had then is hard as fuck these days.
As a Canuck, I know that feel all too well.
But yeah, just wait for Datong/Bandai to release Cell again. Dunno if we'll ever be getting a Premium Broly anytime soon (assuming we are at some point, unless Datong gets to it first)
I probably won't get any of those, so until they do a driving school Goku or the Yardrat costume, I am set. The Frieza Saga SDCC and the new Awakening Goku are easily the best of them all.
I have SDCC '15 goku, and got SDCC piccolo for christmas, is sdcc gohan worth it? I like the mentorship he had with piccolo and I feel that the regular version would look weird/too pale for the sdcc piccolo.
I wish Jacksdo would make more heads and accessories. I have pic related and it's awesome
So, I have a 50 dollar gift certificate to Amazon, and a 5 dollar credit as well since they fucked up one of my orders once.
Right now Frieza is on Amazon for 160, on Prime. That means if I used my card and credit, I can get him right now for 105. Expensive, but relatively speaking, doable.
Any thoughts on this? Should I go for it if i'm not particularly hurting on cash? Or should I just wait for a possible reissue/should I grab the Datong if it's really worth it? I figured I'd only be spending another 50-60 for the real figure.
Yeah, I don't exactly want to.
Ugh though. Am I being autistic about not wanting bootlegs? I mean, mostly I am against shitty Nendoroid bootlegs, but idk, I like the feeling of having the official figure, but apparently Datong's are nearly identical to their Figuarts counterparts. Is this autistic of me?
I think the Banpresto figures are a lot better than the regular figuarts releases (Figuarts Zero is pretty awesome too).
I have Banpresto Perfect Cell, Gotenks, Radditz, and Bardok and they all look better than the Figuarts figures I have. Shit, the Figuarts Zero figures look better than the normal figuarts figures I own.
Very cool, thanks for the info. I'd love to find out if it is really from the same factory...
But yeah. Might keep lurking and view reviews of Datong Frieza. But may just go for it. If anything, as a fuck you to Bandai. Thanks.
Thanks, yep, will do a little more research / wait for more reviews and hopefully some from /toy/ soldiers, but will eventually do the same probably. Everyone seems to think very highly of them.
Welp datong frieza just came in. I'll dump a bit.
If you want any specific pictures just ask.
He looks pretty good. But he has a weird nick on the right side of his head(his right)
If this doesn't work you guys are just gunna have to break your necks
Last one for now.
He definitely looks good but my main problem is he has a ton of trouble standing. It's pretty annoying. It mostly comes from his tail.
His legs tend to pop off too. It's not so bad that it makes it impossible to pose but it does get annoying.
Overall I'm happy with it. Way better than paying rape prices. Again if you want any other pictures just ask
Easy. If you buy black acrylic spray paint, and then cover the rest of the body carefully so the paint doesn't leak or anything, you'll get a nice factory smoothness. Then you just fill out the little bits you missed with a brush directly by hand.
This little fella arrived today, and my Datong frieza should be here tomorrow, hopfully. I hope I can get a neat little setup with them.
Anybody have/or have we gotten word on how these guys are yet?
They released like a day or two ago.
I dont have these particular figures, but I have the Goku Bardock and Broly that's part of the same series. They are fucking awesome. They're about 3" tall and have amazing detail. My only complaint is SSJ Goku's face. It's a little off but other than that, awesome desk top figures.
Finally got awakening Goku. Wish I didn't have to choose SAL all the time.
Also wish that Awakening's head fit on regular Goku's body the way regular fits on Awakening's body.
>Gogeta still hasn't been announced
Man this is bullshit.
I have the previous wave with Goku, Bardock, and Broly. I like all of them a lot, but the hips on the Bardock body (which I think they re-used for Vegeta) are fairly limited. Still very cool figures, though, especially for the scale.
Not really a fan of janemba but I guess it'd be cool. Now if Gogeta and Bardock were announced on the other hand....
I enjoyed his look, plus having the main bad guy to fight the good guy we saw once (I think) would be really nice.
Bardock w/ a super saiyan head would be great. They could even heavily reuse some of the stuff they alright have, right?
Yeah it is. But I don't really like the Big Bang Kamehameha, feels a little too tame.
Yeah, it's a little underwhelming in GT, but everything's underwhelming in GT. The 100x Big Bang Kamehameha from Budokai 3 looked really cool.
Besides, if Gogeta were to come with any parts, it'd probably be with the Stardust Breaker orb.
Cooler than Vegito?
Come on dude, Gogeta was literally nothing. He had an okay role in GT, but >GT. He was literally a boring strong nobody against Janemba. Vegito actually talked mad shit and had a great personality and almost every moment of his fight is vivid in memory.
The price will be within like 5 bucks for either store. I prefer HLJ too, because I like the fact that I can loot some stuff and send a bigger shipment to save some cash on shipping. Plus being able to cancel is a big advantage in case something happens. If anything happens I'm fairly certain BBTS will have him up sometime, and they aren't much more if anymore than the other two sites for dbz stuff. That's where I got awakened goku as well as gold frieza and blue goku.
Probably will sell out within a couple hours on Amiami. HLJ will probably claim they have him in stock, then do that thing where they sell shit they don't have and switch your order to back order.
*This item is limited to 1 per customer.
Here we go again. I hope all of you are asleep.
There's always the Datong option. Or you could rip out Super Battle Collection Broly's hair.
I managed to find the Gohan, Golden Frieza and SSGSSJ Goku in my local comic shop. Hope I'll be able to find the new figures in there whenever they come out. Bandai's release method is retarded
Oh... look who's here (again): http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?scode=FIG-IPN-1171-S002
USSJ is not happening because that means new body sculpt on the account that he bulks up like a 'roid monkey.
> "But they could've just use normal SSJ body"
Then people complain that it's not accurate, canon, etc. There's always something people will complain.
My Goku FIGURINE finally came. It's fucking perfect.
Man I just wanted to stick with iconic outfits for DBZ.
But seeing how good Awakening Goku looked, I don't want to miss out on another good figure that is eons beyond most of the releases that came before it.
Did they get somebody new to make these? Or one of their more veteran sculptors to head production?
Don't they teach geography & common sense in school?
Yeah, honestly when you compare it to sal for a few things it's hardly different. Now when I ems'd my kamen rider genocider and it came to like 35 bucks, that was a mistake.
Ended up ordering a trunks from amiami since I had figma hulk preordered there too. I usually prefer hlj but this was much easier since the 3 things I wanted come out at the same time.
I've never waited long than a month and a half longer than people who order from Japan, and if you want shipping low enough to make it cost less than BBTS, you are going to be waiting for 3 weeks for it to ship to you anyway.
I work 3rd shift so I usually always miss out on these preorders. Plus, they go up at 1 am my time.
Decided to try and preorder Trunks from my phone. Got in right at 1, and didn't even get through the checkout process until 1:07 because the site was slow as fuck, but I managed to get him.
>don't want Krillin and Piccolo
>Broly and GT shit
You're the problem with the fanbase.
It's an iconic moment, but it's not any form of his clean gi which is basically his mascot uniform for Dragon Ball. It's battle damage variant of it. A damn good one, but if I had to go for one outfit for a single Goku SHF I'd own it would be a clean one.
I hope they fix his face and make his colors more like pic related
