This Master Stars Vegeta with a 2d-esque paint job coming in November looks incredible. :shock:
Wish they'd give us a complete new sculpt for the Manga dimensions especially here since I am not a fan of this Vegeta.

I'm sure this is old news by now, but the SH Figuarts Yamucha comes with an extra saibamen and Tenshinhan comes with extra chiaotzu that can attach to the back of the Sh Nappa. Pretty neat little do-hickies.

That makes sense why Yamucha is $65 then. I mean, they are still raising prices considerably from what they used to be, but at least this one is a teeny bit justified.

I'd hypothesize it is to cash in on the resale value that their figures have been able to amass over time. I'd agree with you though at least they seem to making it worth our while.

So.... Banpresto struck again with the SCultures 7 Piccolo...

The Protoype:

The final version...

They keep doing this, making the actual figures not as good as the prototypes.

I'm kinda lost for words really was really looking forward to this too.

I mean, you're pretty open about looking at cartoon porn. Why would you do that? It's fiction. The proportions of these women are not possible to reach in reality.

What are the best sites to buy figures and statues apart from amazon ?
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

Ami ami and Tokyo Otaku Mode are both very dependable but be prepared to pay through the nose for shipping if you get something big. A lot of people also use Hobby Link Japan and Big Bad Toy Store.

Figure-rise Standard Broly:
Image

Shoulder joints are a bit odd, but looks to be a good, cheap alternative to the Figuarts.

I'm going to sell my sealed one now and make bank, then buy this one and still have money leftover. :mrgreen:

In terms of roster, price and availability, the Figure-rise line is awesome. They're not to the level of the Figuarts, and they're lighter and hollower because that's the nature of model kits, but they're affordable, readily available (Bandai keeps their models in circulation for many, many years. They still reissue model kits from the 90s from time to time!), and the articulation is sometimes better than the Figuarts, so they're fun to pose and mess around with. A little paint helps them a great deal as well.

I've heard some of the Figurise models have issues with popping apart. Is that true or is it just a problem specific to Perfect Cell?

I have only built SS4 Goku and SS2 Gohan so far (I have SS4 Vegeta and Cell, but they're not built yet), and the only thing that pops off between them is the back piece of Gohan's hair, but that can (and will) be easily glued in place.

If Cell's segments pop off (which seems to be simply due to his construction), little dabs of superglue on the pegs would stop that.

Thanks for the response! Maybe I'll pick one up when I have the chance! :thumbup:

I don't think it will be, they used to show random pics before of characters too, like a beefed up Roshi, when we god a regular perverted one. And the first pic is showing SS2 for SS1. I'm more excited for SS4 and SS2 :)

Well, if he isn't in his F dougi, then I've saved myself some money. Not as good a thing, but still a good thing.
