UI Goku, Trunks, Goku Black...thats it! I cant justify the others..."Hey guys remember that 1 episode where Gohan went ss? Lets make that a figure! Or those 2 seconds Vegetto was in base form!" I get it they want to milk something w/o making new molds its just frustrating...theres so many other characters they could give us...If I had that Goku box set then I could could justify base form vegeta...

A couple of weekends ago I finally had some spare time to put my Figure-Rise Piccolo together and absolutely love him! He'll go great with the Dragon Stars line.



I was a little worried about cutting out his parts from the spruces since I'd never done it before, so I skipped his head and worked on the body first. That way I could get a feel on how I wanted to go about the cutting and have to say that I'm quite proud of myself on the way he turned out. As a matter of fact, I love him so much that I've already ordered the Figure-Rise Standard versions of Android #18, Perfect Cell, Krillin and Son Goku. Next up on my build list though is Android #17.

Sorry to bump the thread.

I've mentioned before I'm not a DB fan. Nothing against it, I just don't think it's for me. But there is a figure that I've said if I found I'd buy intstantly: Goku Black. I don't know who he is but he looks cool. Found him for just above retail today. I'm wondering though... should I keep him? He looks cool but I don't collect them. And I know I'll want someone to match him with.

Thoughts?

If it's the Dragon Stars line, Find a Zamasu to go with him as they were a pair in the show and use the same energy sword weapon. Though if you someone to pair him against, find a Trunks (or Goku, or Vegeta)

Yeah the Dragon Star figure. I specifically wanted a Goku and Vegeta to go against him. Not sure what version though.

Also a small review of him after opening him.

Why exactly couldn't the Legacy figures be this great? Proper 6 inch scale, alternate hands, metallic paint. I absolutely love the shine his hair has on it.

I wish the legs, ankles and neck had a bit more movement but beyond that I think it's great.

I'd say go for the Super Saiyan Blue versions of the two. They're better sculpted then the Base/Super Saiyan versions and they also have the metallic hair matching Goku Black.
Though the Base/Super Saiyan versions just got reissued so you'll have an easier time finding those.

The blue does look nice. Maybe I'll grab them here in a few weeks.

Though, how is the BAF market? As in selling off unwanted parts?

Eh, that Goku and Vegeta aren’t in their outfits they wear when fighting Black. So if you want something more “show” specific, go with Vegetto Blue. You get both Goku and Vegeta in one figure and you only have to buy one.

That said, I don’t know the BAF market on these.

Eh..."show accuracy" isn't a huge deal to me. At the moment at least.

Though this is worrying, this is exactly how I got into Star Wars. No interest in the franchise, bought some cool looking characters and it grew into a thing.

I didn’t figure it did, but just extending the option.

For those interested, it appears Walmart is starting to stock these figures. I checked three this weekend and they all had Series 3 (or Wave C or whatever we're calling the different assortments these days), so I'm hoping the mysterious/elusive Series/Wave 4 start showing up somewhere soon.

Also, I saw 1" figures at Gamestop that were labeled as part of the Dragon Stars line. I had never seen or heard of them, but it looks like there are four 2-packs in Series 1. Gamestop only had one and it included Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta and Golden Frieza.

Edit

There are a couple of YouTuber's who are claiming they know what Series 9-12 will be for the Dragon Stars line and it appears we may be getting a couple of Z and GT focused figures. Now take this with a big grain of salt as the pictures I've seen aren't the best, but here's the supposed breakdown for these four assortments.

Series 9
  • Android #17
  • Super Saiyan 3 Goku
  • Perfect Cell
Series 10
  • Super Saiyan 4 Goku
  • 1st Form Frieza
  • Piccolo
Series 11
  • Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks
  • Broly
  • Android #18
Series 12
  • Super Saiyan 2 Gohan
  • Undisclosed Movie Figure
  • Kid Buu
I'm not sure how I feel about this news if it's true as I'd rather we continue to focus on Super, but some of these I'd be excited about (ala Piccolo, 1st Form Frieza, Perfect Cell) and some I'd rather skip (ala Super Saiyan 3 & 4 Goku, Super Saiyan 3 Gotenks). I do find it intriguing though that 9 of the 12 have already been released as part of Bandai's Figure-Rise Standard line and a non-poseable 1st Form Frieza was released with the Figure-Rise Mechanics line.

Im going to have to take this with a HUGE grain of salt. There is a ton of new tooling in there and there are 2 waves without a goku. And as far as broly hes already a baf, so unless its non super saiyan version i dont see it happening. It would also be a very odd character choice sincenwho really cares about a powered doen broly? Hes the legendary super saiyan. Thats literally his entire character. Would anyone actually be excited about it?

But yeah, bootlegs. The scale is seriously out of wack too.

It'll depend who the Build-A-Figures are for the leaked series, but after getting into the Figure-Rise line, a lot of these may get a pass from me. Also, that Super Saiyan 4 Goku looks about as crappy as the GT figures Jakks released.

I'm not sure how much new tooling is necessary though since Bandai has already somewhat tooled majority of these figures with their Figure-Rise Standard line. And the Broly is probably the opposite of whatever Broly we're getting with Series 7 and 8. So we'll get old school Broly and new school Broly.

Wow....i am actually happy to be wrong! 17 looks to be from dbz not super which i prefer, kid boo of course is great, and cell??? Yes please. I knew piccolo was coming soon. And with ss3 gotenks the other two versions are only a matter of time. I just hope first form frieza is a precurser for 2nd and 3rd forms, along with first and second for cell. Those might be asking for too much though. Id be happy with just final forms if they dont get made.

“Undisclosed movie figure”

We getting canon Gogeta, bois


Also don’t be deterred at the SSJ4 Goku. The stock photos are usually prototypes that never look as good as the actual figures.
