First Form Cell is my favorite version of Cell. Even though I'm not collecting them in full anymore, that's one version I'd have a hard time passing over.

Honestly at this point I just want the base Z-Fighters made. Gimmie Tien, Krillin, and Yamcha and I'll be happy.

all good, dont know if we will see them though as they arent really in super other than as background characters, other than krillin. they did fight against friezas forces, but that was for maybe 2 episodes in the begining. its all about saiyans and villians. everyone else might as well just stay out of the way, and i kind of hate that.

Ha! Thanks for the photos by the way. I know sometimes you aren’t always on the board to post.

I want both that Gogeta and Vegeta though. SS4 is my favorite form... even if they are a little “jointy”.

...Why is there a SS4 Rosé figure? The hell is that?

Though yes please to young Gohan and Krillin. I've wanted a Krillin but no way will I pay Figuarts prices for him.

YESS!!! GOGETA 4!!! and he looks Superb!!

SSj4 Vegeta looks great!! In fact, All the SSJ4 figures look Great! Goku SSj4 was great, except that hip gap.

Finally giving us an updated SSJ Goku. Now we need base Goku updated with classic gear on, and maybe just maybe...a freaking SSJ2 Goku!

Dont understand why That form just gets no love???

Yay, we're getting Piccolo with the cape/turban and Krillin! I'm hoping the hair with Gogeta is just a prototype/lighting issue rather than an indication of the final product.

Nah, he'd still look the same body wise, its the hair that changes.
Its a minimal thing(especially in Goku and Vegeta's case since there is hardly any difference in the hair other than some more spikes and for goku, not as many bangs as the SSJ look) but its still worth having its own figure and head sculpt IMO. Especially since they are making the hair look so damn good.

the only thing i remember is in super trunk used it and he became huge, then he used the blue aura power up and shrunk back to normal size, and in the dbz fighting games goku would have a lightning effect swirling around him.

Well, I mean yes there are visual effects in the show that makes SSJ1 and SSJ2 different, but Im talking about as a Figure/toy, there wouldnt be any drastic difference with Goku and Vegeta's SSJ2. Only the headsculpt.


But I still would like it to be made for Goku.

Are you saying you dont like an extra figure? Granted a megazord was silly, but an actual extra figure was great. Would have gotten us silver space if theyd done it right. Maybe even the other half of ninja storm.

Bandai has mentioned in a blog post that the cost of the BAF parts went towards creating new molds. Since then we've been getting more unique figures like Cell, Piccolo, SS4 Goku, Androids, 1st form Frieza, etc.

Realize there are roughly 3 figures per wave, and all the way through wave 3 of Dragon Stars, 2 of those figures were Goku and Vegeta (Goku/Vegeta/Beerus, Goku/Vegeta/Frieza, Goku/Vegeta/Hit)....thats 6 Gokus and Vegetas in the first 9 figures released. Even waves 4 and 5, though not technically redoing characters, reused many molds. Rather than an "extra" figure after buying multiple remolds, I'd rather have more unique characters that I actually want to begin with.

Rangers are a bit different than DBZ though...not only are collectors already more inclined to complete entire waves/teams, but Bandai only had to produce a male body, a female body, and 5-6 helmets for each set. With nearly every character being a remold by nature, costs should have been low enough to meet collector's demands and finish each team (or at the very least get the paint right). BAF was never even necessary for Power Rangers line....the fact that they weren't released before moving on to other teams was a complete failure on Bandai's part.
