I know that, and you know that; but the rest of Japan seems to think Piccolo is the greatest toy ever made. :/

If they weren’t going to use those figures I doubt they’d publicize them.

I’m in awe over the level of detail in SS3 Goku’s hair. Holy crap.

So, Driving School Goku didn’t make the cut, huh? I thought as much, still disappointing.

I’m surprised the Android 20 figure won against Vegeta, but I’d prefer a 20 figure over Vegeta anyway.

It's too bad that Driving School Goku didn't advance. I would have killed for that figure. *Sigh* Oh well. I hope SSJ Gohan wins, he's my second favorite.

For some reason I think the SSJ3 Goku got another shot at winning! Go look at the site again at the voting section, he's like the wild card or something off to the left!

By FAR, the best is the SSJ3 Goku hands down. It looks ridiculous, LOOK AT IT. The Gohan is a close follow up. The most disappointing of the bunch in my opinion is Perfect Cell, he looks sloppy- other than that amazing figures. There is genuine excitement in my heart for the SSJ3 figure. Hopefully he wins the wild card spot and takes the win from Piccolo.

Oh WOW, Gohan. O_O

I agree! He is definitely the best, hands down. :P

Instead we got effin Piccolo.

Hey, just try to deny that that is one sexy ass Piccolo figure. Even if it's me saying it, it's gorgeous.

Though my second choice would have been Driving School Goku, as it's adoreable.

??? Is the special wild card that they selected, the winner of that was the SSJ3 Goku, so he will run up against 20 and hopefully win. SSJ Goku vs Piccolo, hmm hard to tell who the winner of that will be. It may be Piccolo again purely based on the fact that he slaughtered SSJ3 Goku last round. Hopefully with the painted pictures people will have a different take on the figures. I for one am willing to buy a painted prototype of the figure even if SSJ3 Goku doesn't get made. As for Gohan SSJ vs Cell, Gohan will clearly win that. Gohan has been mentioned by a lot of people, and I've seen interest directed specifically towards him. Plus the Cell doesn't even look that good, and I'm sure people will align themselves more-so with Gohan than Cell. So it will pretty much be down to SSJ3 Goku, Piccolo?, and Gohan.

Isn't it SSJ 2 Gohan like he was at the Budokai?

And I'll have to say those figures look awesome! Too bad I'm not collecting figures anymore.

Nope, pretty sure that's meant to be SSJ1 Gohan right as he's about to attack Spopovitsj during Videl's match.

Darn....I really like Gero's design. Well atleast he won to Vegeta. :lol:

Driving Goku shouldn't have lost, what a shame.

So when it's all said and done, how many will get made :?:
Next to get; Leged of Saiyan figures and Freeza's force

If anyone sees
Any of the Legend of Saiyan line going cheapish
Or any other Banpresto DBZ figure :)

If anyone has a cooler steelbook dvd that wants to sell it (prefer new but used is fine) when/if the dragon box movies comes out contact me :)

Aw, I love it. I like that they added a hermit crab to the base. Little details like that on figures always makes me smile.

:shock: :shock: :shock:
Drooling. That smirk.
Seeing this one really makes me hope they make a Vegetto and Gogeta figure to the same level of detail.
