Yep and the SH MonsterArts Kong is same way. It has detail, but they made the plastic same level as NECA. Which in certain thin areas you wonder if it'll deform from a pose.
I can't describe just how fucking bad the latest Goku was. It's a clear indicator to pull the plug.

You talking about the SSG Event Exclusive that released with Nappa and all of the others? Did you do a review of that? I haven’t watched anyone’s review and I only opened mine to check the inventory, as I normally do.

I mean the SS Full Power version. They completely botched it.

The Kaioken Blue Goku just went up for order. Holy hell, they just keep hitting us over and over and over again. It’s like they don’t even want to give themselves a break at this point, much less our wallets.

It's a giant reason I'm getting out. Storm Collectibles might get me 4-5 times a year and the event exclusives typically are easy passes.

I mean, it’s not like these are twenty dollar figures and it’s no big deal. This shit is damn near Mafex level prices from a few years back. It’s time to start noticing the fatigue and slow the fuck down.

Of course, you got retards on Instagram and Facebook all foaming at the mouth at every release and any time anyone makes a comment about this shit they say something along the lines of “you don’t have to buy it.” It’s called completing a collection and yeah, you kinda have to, if you’re not a casual tard.

I’m looking forward to clearing my shelf’s and moving my Gundams to replace them.
I mean, you can certainly take those at a better pace. They’re always re-releasing the kits or updating them to be of better build quality. You aren’t ever going to miss out on a Gundam. They will always be there, as far as hobbies go.

But with this Dragon Ball Figuarts line, you may very well miss out on most of these figures, if you don’t buy them—and end up paying a premium down the road. The whole FOMO thing is really bad in this particular line. I don’t think any Marvel Legends, Black Series, Mafex, Figma or any other type of series is THIS bad.

There’s only so many Gundam series I can be into at once. It’s just Wing and Seed mostly. Other stuff is bonus. I might have over 40 kits now.

And those are so heavily mass produced they’re always available. Exclusives aren’t really exclusive.

Currently I only need one more Wing kit. Several Seed. And I might get could Real Grades and I’m done for moment.

I’m buying up the Digimon model kits as I was always a big fan of the season 1 of the series.

How did you end up listing your Dragon Ball stuff? By era?

That's what they do with a lot of Dragon Ball for some reason like the games - both mobile and console - with their add ons and such. Merchandise doesn't surprise me with the variants of merchandise as well such as Prime 1's Goku and Vegeta statues.
For Figuarts...I think the problem was they started a bit too early, or at least focused too hard, on side characters while only getting to Super and DB now. I am not surprised about the quality however.
