Zoukei Tenkaichi Budoukai by Banpresto

Post by SHINOBI-03 » Tue Dec 14, 2010 5:36 pm

New Dragon Ball figures are coming from Banpresto. What are they going to be? I don't know.

The only clues we got so far is "Zoukei Tenkaichi Budoukai" and "Banpresto Figure Colosseum"

Here's the link for the main site, with a countdown till they reveal everything at December 18: http://z-tenkaichi.bpnavi.jp/

Interesting. Have they done a countdown website like this before for figure releases?
It fills me with high hopes. I hope we see a good range out of this.

Rather flashy for just a figure release, isn’t it?
I wonder if there’s more to it …
Looking forward to seeing how these figures look, hopefully they include characters that don’t usually get much merchandise. Also hoping they’re articulated, though I have a feeling they’ll be static, but that’s cool too.
(Yay, more stuff for me to waste my money on!)

Well, this is just a rumor at the moment but SgtLopez25, a figure collector off Youtube who has "connections" in Japan states that after about July or so Banpresto will be restricting it's figures to Japan only; mainly becuase the arcade owners their are starting to complain that they aren't making good sales from the "game prize figures" versus sellers off Ebay that are earning more from the same figures. So apparently this will lead to an exponential price increase in the figures coming end of July... of course this is speculation at the moment. This is bad news for collectors and general toy enthusiasts alike as I'm already paying too much for this stuff, I really don't need added costs. His advice is to find your own seller or "middle man". :/ So when I see that Banpresto is going to make a new figure release I am happy yet sad... lol.
Although he states that one piece figures have already been restricted since a month ago.. But I still see them everywhere online, granted they're more expensive though.
See what I'm talking about here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFNijKDeNxc from 6:36 - 8:35.

I just have to say that I love the little Dragon Ball volume adjuster.

Judging by the site and the music on the site, they must be the most epically badass figures in existance. :P

Or at least they had better be with all that buildup. :P

I love Banpresto. They have made some really awesome DragonBall figures in the past. I'm actually looking foward to this! :D

Hmm, it's supposed to be revealed tomorrow at 9 am right? Because I just checked the site and the countdown clock is gone, and random menus and info has started appearing. I don't see any images of figures though... :/.

Sheesh, that's a pretty flashy site. It certainly gives me high hopes, but something tells me that anything put out by a site like this is going to be waaaaay out of my budget range.

Woah...go to Tournament Table in the menu tab. Then pick a Block. Then you can see what I assume are the figures. If you click on the pictures of the figures you can get a nice 360 view of the figure.

http://i52.tinypic.com/2zfsb60.png I believe that's one of the figures. Actually it says they're prototypes.

That battle damaged Super Saiyan 3 Son Goku looks pretty awesome.
They all look pretty great. I have no idea what this tournament thing is about, though.

It's like the toy designers are pitting each others' designs against one another. These look insane!

The site and the music are epic! Loved the scouters and the fighting power of the designers. Let the best toy wins.

Daizex needs to cover this.

And totally awesome. I'm curious as to what the tournament set up means...will only the "winner's" figures be made or something? 'Cause that would suck.
