So in the end baf works better for dbz. Its true we want more diverse character selection, but many characters come with multiple forms. They didnt have to release them consecutively wave after wave. They could give us new figs minus baf for 2 waves, then release the wave with new forms of characters and a baf of a new maybe larger character. The baf for rangers should have been scrapped for weapons like fans wanted.

Granted this is all far to complicated for bandai to handle. Were lucky the line is as good as it is and getting even better.

With the Legacy line, I hated the bafs because we didnt get accessories or alternate heads.

With the stars line, now without the bafs they can pump out figures much faster than just 3 figures at a time.. besides, I always hated the idea of buying a character I didnt like JUST to complete the baf... Id rather just buy the actual figure/character I want.. For example Id rather buy a packaged kale figure instead of trying to put her together through baf... and bandai is stil being a little stingy with accessories.

Hasbro’s legends is like is the only one to do the bafs correctly.. they pump out figures quickly and still dont skimp out on accessories (for the most part)

I'd love if Stars could work on the leg and head articulation.

Easily my biggest gripe with the line. More accessories would be nice too.

I honestly don't think it would be too much to ask for some different transformation heads. When each character has so many different forms, we could get 2 heads/forms per Saiyan and Bandai could STILL milk the same figure 3 times (not even taking into consideration that the body molds can be reused for multiple characters). BAF is just bad in principle and only benefits the manufacturer...the money for those pieces is put to better use improving the figure you're actually buying.

For some reason I was thinking Kid Buu, Gotenks, and Android 18 were the next wave...was planning to skip 18, but if thats the case it looks like I'll be getting all 3.

They already released jiren and ui goku... the metallic paint doesnt catch my interest. They should have made it a character they havent done before..

I'd much rather an exclusive be a repaint than something that almost no one outside of the con can get.

This is basically standard practice for con exclusives. It’s a simple repaint that only the most hardcore of collectors /completionists would want.

Same as others. If it was a character you couldnt get at retail then the value would rise even more and then very few people would actually be able to afford it.

I've watched some reviews for the newest wave and they kept talking about how great the new Gogeta looked, how it was the best figure in the line and how much it improved...but I think it looks awful. It's cool they did shading, but I'd rather no shading than look like a spray tanned mess. He reminds me of the original SSJ3 Goku Figuarts. I seriously hope Broly doesn't end up looking that bad.

Also Buu looks a bit too glossy, even by this line's standards, Gohan looks pretty great though.

Did I just get a bad copy, or is his legs wobbly as fuck?
