i havent really noticed that, but yes his belt is unpainted. kinda stinks. typical bandai cutting paint apps. not sure about his eyes. not at home to check. didnt notice anything when i looked before so doubt its bad.

so i took a look, did not notice there is a tiny layer of gray around the pupils. i say gray because it is definately not silver like his eyebrows and hair. very dark so easy to miss.

The belt not being painted is ridiculous unless it's molded in. The belts are make from blue plastic and are completely separate pieces from the pants and top. This is for the waist joint.

If the belt is molded to the pants, then I can see why they didn't paint it, but if it's another piece like the others, then we're back in PR Legacy territory with the silver/white belt situation.


And while Gohan looks odd without the bang in his SS form, that's exactly how he is in Dragon Ball Super. Always thought it looked weird in GT as well.

Yeah it's a terrible design choices in my opinion. lol.

the belt is actually molded to the pants, and there is the torn shirt with goes over it that is painted. they may habe made tje mistake of thinking that what's the belts when it came time to paint it either on the factory level or miscommunication at the designer level. the shirt does drape over the belt but that didn't stop them from painting his skin under the tattered pieces of his pants.

Hmmm... weird.

Not that I can't fix it. But I still think that the previous wave and the next 2 are considered the "transition" waves. With losing PR there was definitely a shake up, which is why the figures quality dropped slightly and why there's so many "reuse" of molds.

I have a hunch that the Z/GT waves coming out are going to be better as they're the post-PR shakeup. So I'm hoping they have the wrinkles ironed out.

Unexpected arrival at GameStop! And to an extent, I was right. All the figures released at the same time.

If anyone still needs to order the new wave, Gamestop has 25% off collectible purchases of $100 or more. Placed my order this morning and got $5.75 off of each figure and free shipping.

Yea I went to one of my gamestops too and they had them all.
I wanted to get them all, but Bills are due.
So I just got UI Goku and Goku black.

If I didnt want to build Broly, I would not get the rest honestly......eh, except trunks and maybe Vegito.

I seen that the Broly is alittle smaller than you would expect though.

Your thoughts on it?

Do people want pics and reviews? Maybe, maybe not, but you're getting them anyway!

I'll just go over each figure real quick with pros and cons and give a simple thought on the set.



Future Trunks:

- Big feet
- Colors are too dark in my opinion
- Head sculpt is fantastic
- Suffers from the hair problem with the neck so he doesn't have up and down motion
- Sword hilt is REMOVABLE!!
- Scabbard doesn't have the straps painted olive green :/



SS Gohan:

- Doesn't suffer from the giraffe neck that Ultimate Gohan does
- Uh... not much else to say, he's exactly the same as Gohan, but with an SS Head



Vegetto:

- Neck issue is fixed, at least from what my SSB Vegetto had
- Face sculpt is dead on
- Joints are tighter than SSB
- No puke green tips of shoes, they're the right color now



Vegeta Whis Outfit:

- Actually, I think this figure is far better than the SSB version even though it's identical



Goku Black:

- Not much to say, identical to his SSR form
- Does have tighter joints than SSR
- Face sculpt is amazing
- Soles of boot are painted, where they aren't on SSR



Ultra Instinct Goku:

- Pretty decent all the way around
- Belt is NOT painted - which is stupid - but fixable
- Really like the sculpt
- Eyes are a little weird like everyone has said, but I don't think hinders the figure, he's just kinda beady-eyed.



Broly BAF:

- Heavy figure
- Decent sculpt
- Is a little smaller than he should be
- He's built like a box, has a very wide stance, which looks a little weird
- Kale pulls off the Broly body FAR better



So overall, this set is pretty much the same as the last one... since most are repaints from other waves. Some issues were fixed, like the neck problems with Gohan and Vegetto, and some of the joints are far better. However, the joint thing is pretty much arbitrary as someone may get a more loose figure. Trunks, Vegetto and Black I think have the best face sculpts out of all the "human" figures so far. Zedd and I were talking about this last night, and he mentioned how far the faces have come from that first wave lol!

I really hope that more of the problems are addressed in the Z/GT waves and the inconsistencies are fixed though.

Nice review Tai, this wave is certainly a mixed bag. I've gotten to be a bit more picky with these, and ended up passing on this wave, in favor of the new figuarts Trunks (had to have me that big blue sword). Oh and what, no pic of Ultra Instinct with Jiren? I want my money back!
