I learned english listening to songs. So I don't know anything about. The day you had to learn play piano by just listening .mp3, you'll understand.

How much do the S.H.Figuarts normally go for? I saw some in HotTopic of all places for $36.

Depending on how rare they are, from $40 for regularly released ones to over $200 for ones like Cell that are limited releases

Ah ok because I saw the price and thought it was odd. So the mass produced ones that $40 is their regular price mark. I guess that isn't bad seeing as how I thought regular price was $70.

It's actually a bit more complicated than that, but only a bit. Normal sized releases do tend to hover around the $40 mark, but they can and do vary depending on the size of the character or number of accessories. I think Broli might have been the most expensive, at nearly $70 at release, but SS3 Goku was $47, Perfect Cell was $60, etc. Character's prices eventually skyrocket after their production comes to an end, and of course SDCC exclusives are another matter as well.

Ah okay this is why I see them at different prices I just thought it was a matter of how rare it was compared to another. Is there a site you would recommend that ships them fast and is reliable. I have my eye on a few I would like to own at some point especially if they do a Goku Black figure which I'm sure they would.

I used to use ToyzInTheBox because they had free shipping and if you caught them soon after the listing was posted, they were usually $10-20 off the MSRP (but slowly increase towards it as release nears).

I can't really say how they compare anymore though, as I stopped collecting the releases once Golden Freeza shipped and he was way smaller than their Final Form Freeza release. I can tolerate scale problems between characters to an extent, but a form that was shown to increase in size being smaller than the one before it? Come on...

The DXF BoG one is 'floating' (which means you HAVE to use the base). This one doesn't, it stands normally, which means you can use it without the stand (that's how I use it, along side the Beerus from the same line)

And yeah, I need to find better signature.

A subtle but good change. Did they release a Whis in this Super line too, do you know?

They did as well as Beerus too. The figures aren't exactly rereleases. From what I can see, the Super version of the SSJGod figure has more of a magenta color for the hair and it's kinda glossy compared to the flat red hair given to the Battle of Gods DXF

No they didn't, the Super series of the line contain SSG Goku, Beerus, Normal Goku (RF gi w/ Whis sign), Champa and Normal Vegeta (RF gi w/ Whis sign)

Yes there is a slight change in the hair color, though you can't really notice unless you hold them side by side.

Ahh I thought the Vegeta was someone doing a custom over the SSGSS but done some searching and found some box art.

That game was one of my favorites especially the weird story mode they had. That cover just draws so much attention too even if it is simple. Great buy :thumbup:
