I don't like (Pefect) Cell and I don't really collect figures anymore, but I might just have to pick this one up.

Ah, thank you. This will be my first time purchasing something from Angolz. I was going to pick this up over at HLJ but it's already listed as "discontinued" there.

I'm kinda bothered by the fact that no other character came with a ki blast. Cell gets a Kamehameha, but Goku doesn't? That's pretty backwards, and to make matters worse, you'd need to buy two Cells to recreate the Kamehameha clash between Cell and Gohan.

I really hope original Goku comes with a Kamehameha of some sorts, even if it's just the charging one from that old Figuarts display.

I might get Cell though. I was considering not getting the Cell-arc characters, and instead end up going for the normal versions (probably earlier versions as well if that's what we get) of characters like Goku and hopefully Vegeta, but Cell might make me reconsider doing so.

I Know right! It kind of annoyed me too. I really would have loved my Goku figuarts figure more if he came with some sort of ki blast prop.

All I know is I'm excited for this to come out.

But if he were a 12" figure... oh man what I would give for a 12" figure of him.

BTW I forgot to add this.

I love how the Joints are so seemless. I dont have an interest in toys/figures any more but that Cell looks cool as hell.
It's not too late. One day, it will be.

Hey guys, I don't know if these two figures are rare but, I'm selling them. I just have no room for them anymore. You guys seem to like figures, so if 'ya want...
