PayPal. I’ll have my hit review up tomorrow.

I’m selling a lot of redundant shit in my collection (like 2k in stuff) So hopefully it softens this stuff the rest of the year.

BBTS is having a sale, but it’s not a very good one. Not many Figuarts worth looking at. There’s some Marvel stuff, but meh. They never have any good sales anymore. The anniversary sale some years back was good. They even had a lot of Hot Toys and Mafex on sale then.

So, it looks like there’s going to be a movie in 2022. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. And guess what, it seems to be fully 3D. This may be the first one I don’t buy. Sorry, but that’s really jarring. Everyone loves the old school animation style of anime and this trend of going 3D is really off putting.

Definitely needs some work. Mostly in the lower torso, hip region.

So, I guess this pretty much means Cabba, Evolved Vegeta (shirtless?), Toppo (God of Destruction version?), the rabbit, Krillin, Tien and Master Roshi are all coming down the pipeline?

Also, this would be neat to have in a bonus room in a nice house:

Not only does that “unboxing” suck dick, but what in the blue fucking hell is on that dude’s head? It looks like he killed a stray cat and is wearing it as a wig.

Holy goddamn shit dude. So, Krillin is definitely getting listed soon. If it’s PBandai I’m gonna throw my hands up and send them an email, because at this point they are cutting out the middle man and taking their place at the table for FULL retail cost.

It’s not like they’re passing on any savings to us. No, it’s actually probably a little more expensive. In some cases, you know it is. Cooler comes to mind.

Kefla is just a con reveal at this point. So, she may sit in limbo with SSJ2 Goku and Imperfect Cell. Expect solicitations for them within the year though.

I’m surprised you didn’t roast Tamashii for their overly abundant PBandai abuse. I mean, they’re effectively cutting out the middle man and going straight to market, but charging slightly more than regular retailers would. It’s absurd.

And correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the original intent for the launching of that service to ensure that fans got figures of characters whom Tamashii thought would be too risky for normal retail releases? You can’t sit there and be swallowing that crap after seeing what’s been listed on there since it’s inception. It’s a load of bullshit.

Just look at the few Marvel figures they’ve slapped up there. Four figures. Four. And two of them were guaranteed sellers. The logic that runs that company is outstanding, at times.

I’m still waiting on Burter. Hit won’t ship for another few weeks, I guess.

That extra chest piece is so you can bring his arms more forward for a boxing pose, if I do recall correctly.

Also, are you getting the DF SSG Whis Gi Goku? That should go great with Hit. Fairly sure a SSJ Blue Kaioken version is coming too.

I’m glad you tossed in the PBandai rant. They’ve gotta realize they are going about this the wrong way. When it comes to figures that everyone knows are going to fly off the shelves, just produce enough to guarantee supply for retailers. The problem we were having before is the goddamn things would sell out almost the same afternoon they were posted on BBTS.

Now, it’s just overly congested with PBandai exclusive after PBandai exclusive. And we have got to be close to almost 20 figures a year. It used to be 12, at best, for a few years.

I never like the side profiles of their figures and that Gohan was dogshit. But they seem to do okay for the most part. They’ve certainly improved enough to look forward to their figures.

The Ginyu Force stuff was decent. I think it really was the spark that Tamashii needed to finally do the Frieza saga Justice. Although, they still have some ground to cover. Eventually, we will need a Nail (with Dende), Cui, Namek Saga Vegeta, Battle-Damaged Saiyan Armor Vegeta (Recoome fight), Saiyan Armor Gohan, Saiyan Armor Krillin, Battle-Damaged Piccolo, Full Power Frieza (with severed tail), Full Battle-Damaged SSJ Goku and SSJ Transformation Goku. The latter will be turned into a Kaioken Goku for SDCC, almost guaranteed.

I’m sure there’s more they can do. This line will continue for many years. There’s no rush for them to be pumping out two dozen figures a year.

Have you noticed that they stopped putting the little pieces of plastic between the joints to protect the paint? This has been since they made the factory switch to Vietnam.

Yeah I have. Every time I open one, I think it's been opened since these things used to be lathered in plastic sheets. And I only noticed recently it reads Made in Vietnam on the box.
