I'm so happy for you man! Like really really happy for you! In fact, I'm so incredibly happy I could just strangle this kitten!

Ahhhhhh damn it, there's another GameStop in the mall. Haven't been in there in years, partly because GameStops are awful and partly because I hate the mall, so maybe they have collectables now.

GameStop is going to get two exclusive figures.

These are based off of the copies of the main crew, as seen in the upcoming game Dragon Ball FighterZ.

They’re $19.99 on the website. Not sure if they’ll be guaranteed in stores. That’s why I preordered them. They’ll be here tomorrow.

So I saw a head, an upper body with one arm, and a crotch. Does that mean Wave 4 will have the other three parts?

Yep. Wave 3 will no doubt have the deformed arm, and two legs coming with SSB Vegeta/Goku Black/Zamasu

I love how the new wave came out right when the arc began in the English Dub. Can't wait to find these on shelves.

Went to the mall GameStop, they had collectables, but no DBS figures. Guy at the desk saw me looking, and I figured it didn't hurt to ask. He got my hopes up when he sounded like he knew what I was talking about, but he was thinking of the GameStop exclusive figures.

So that's three strikes for me, looks like I'll have to be patient, like a good boy. Hope these show up elsewhere sooner than later.

Yeah I searched every Gamestop around me. Most didn't even have the Dragon Stars figures from any wave. *sigh* I'll also board the waiting train and avoid looking at the marked up figs on eBay...

Just watched two awful reviews of SSB Goku and Trunks and learned a couple of things. Trunks' sheath has another hilt of the sword either glued or molded onto it, couldn't tell from the video. They weirdly increased the size of the feet, so they look a little disproportionately big. They seem to have removed the drop down hips, or the reviewer's just an idiot, not sure. They added two points of articulation, the neck can move forward and back art the base, very similarly to the figure rise kits, and new ankles that are basically Figuarts wrists, so they offer much better range. The neck seems to work okay on Goku, but it might as well not even be there on Trunks, the ankles work well on both.

For those of you who planned on doing the same thing I was, head swapping doesn't work on Goku, so you can't put the Blue head on the regular body, and vice versa. The pegs are different sizes, and the skin tones are different.

Screencaped from said reviews
Comparison against Figuarts, I actually think I like the Dragon Stars Goku more. At least in some respects.

Nothing new with the sword. Figuarts does that too so that the sword is more proportional with how it’s actaully shown... than shrunk down to fit in the sheath or vice versa having a huge sheath to fit the sword. I halfway expected that to happen.

A little disgruntled that the heads can’t be swapped. Was hoping to make use of the same legged Goku I have to give Goku Black a normal head.

And I will say that the Dragon Stars still look more like the anime than Figuarts. Xenoverse Figuarts Trunks is the only Trunks figure that actually looks like his counterpart. They’re great figures, but I can live with $20 versions like this.

I wonder if sanding down the pegs would make the heads easier to swap. I'd really like to have base Goku in the RoF outfit.

Well yeah, but they kinda missed the part where you can pull off the fake sword hilt, so it's still weird. I'm gonna slice mine off, drill a couple holes, and add a peg, in much the same way I did to my Legacy Ninja Storm figures.

Yep, totally screws over my plan, which was to put the Blue heads on the normal bodies and the normal heads on the ResF bodies. They'll probably release normal bodied SSB figures in the wave after, but maybe with the improvements from this wave.

Speaking of, Blue Goku has much better shirt shoulder pieces than the first wave. Instead of the weird floaty pieces they used on the Figuarts, these use the same trick that the figure rise kits do.

They have a full circular piece that the arm goes through, and looks a hell of a lot better.

Yeah, I really want these characters, but when they have $20 alternatives, that I personally think look pretty decent, I just can't justify paying through the nose for higher end versions. You may get more, but it's still just an action figure that's going to sit on my shelf/desk.

At the beginning of the year, I paid about $100 for Figuarts 17 and I instantly regretted it. Don't get me wrong he's an awesome figure, but I quickly realized that while he doesn't look as nice, come with as much stuff, or scale as well, figure rise 17 provided basically everything I wanted and was far more affordable. Bought figure rise 17 and 18, sold Figuarts 17, and I'm just as satisfied. From that point on, I pretty much decided on foregoing getting anymore Figuarts, and sticking to the cheaper lines. I say that as I'm about to pull the trigger on figure rise Broly, who's about the price of a Figuart.

You probably can, but those skin tones are still gonna be waaaaay off.

Ohhhh..... well, that's something.




Dun, dun, duuuuunnnnnnnnnn!!!!




These are kinda cool. For a repaint. We usually hold items with UPS and pick them up, so I get things really early now. Probably won't open them, and the packaging is exactly the same as the base figures... just a couple of stickers on them to denote the difference.

Grabbed Trunks and Hit today. First Dragon Stars figs and they aren't too bad; Hit pops off at the waist pretty easily, but not TOO easily.

Wish they had Goku. They had a second Hit instead..

They're just repackaged. Literally the same as the first wave.

Which isn't surprising. If they were a con-exclusive or something then I'd expect a slip-cover or extra goodies... but I really wasn't expecting new boxes.
