Anyone else collect them? I've just been in the middle of a Dragonball frenzy lately! Started watching the remastered 'Z' from the first episode after getting all 9 seasons the other day... Then start I wanted collectibles, whcih I never bother with as a kid as they always look cheap and never had any articulation! Then I saw and ordered the Bandai 1/8 Goku Master Grade Model Kit Figure. But then I found out about this S.H FiguArts line (also made by Bandai Japan!) So I also promptly ordered the S.H FiguArts Piccolo figure! This looks like its going to develop in to a great 6" line! All the figures feature mulitple pairs of hands, faces and in some case hair!

Currently, They've made Super Saiyan Goku, Super Saiyan Gohan and Piccolo! However they seem to be expanding the line with a regular Goku and Vegeta soon! With Power Up accessories!

I'll post a review of the Piccolo Figure when I get him! Anyway here are some pictures from what is out now and coming (hopefully) very soon!!! :yess:

I haven't picked any of these up yet but I've been super tempted. Getting a few of the main characters would be nice.

Are they roughly Revoltech sized or larger?

Though I haven't paid much attention for years, I loved this show for a brief period when I was in high school. I was always surprised at the cheapness and lack of articulation of figures released associated with the show, given that it was really the definitive "action" cartoon. Would be very interested in Vegeta and regular Gokou.

Ohh, I really like the kamehameha Goku and makankosapo Piccolo! Actually, levitating Piccolo and SS3 Goku look pretty good too. :yess::yess:

I currently only have the SSJ Goku, though I'm thinking about picking up Gohan and Piccolo while I still can. I wish they came with more accessories though. Goku is hurting for a Kamehameha wave.

Well, I only had a vague interest in Dragon Ball as a kid, because of a chinese friend of mine. I only watched it a little bit, but always though the show drag a bit... With all the drawn out power-up sequences.

But I was speaking to a guy at a bar and he started telling me how awesome the show is if you watch the whole show in order. So I got all 9 seasons and am only up to the end of the second season and loving it!!! So good, some of the characters and scenes are annoying as, but I'm really enjoying it!

My chinese friend showed me some of the figures from back in the day, which I thought were rubbish, back then as well. I was always amazed at how such a popular IP could be lacking in having great figures... Well here they are I suppose!

I wish I just knew when Vegeta, Son Goku are getting released!

I own SS Goku, Piccolo and Gohan... and waiting for my most anticipated figure from this line: Vegeta :panic::panic:

One thing I noticed with my last figure, SS Gohan is the lower paint level.. I mean, the skin tone of his chest is mixed with the main outfit color :thud:... and the whole outfit is unpainted, just the natural color of the material (I believe is'nt PVC), so there is'nt shadows effects like the promotional pics and looks very, poor and cheap :slap... at least the hair is really good done and painted

I hate to break it to you guys, but I wouldn't expect much from this lineup. From what I've heard, these have not sold very well in Japan or at least not as much as expected. They had prototypes of Vegeta shown, but he never came out and I wouldn't be surprised if he never did. Also, every One Piece figuarts that has come out has shelf warmed like crazy and you can get them for fifty percent off pretty much everywhere you go. I imagine both lineups will end before completing either run.

Get real. As a character, Goku sucks. Piccolo has depth while Goku is pretty one dimensional. And as a figure, well, SSJ3 Goku doesn't exist so...

But really, this Piccolo figure is great. Amazing paint apps, vibrant colors, awesome poses. Just over all the best Dragonball figure I own. Hands down.

But Draonball isn't One piece. These figures have sold out everywhere. They are even doing a EX repaint of the SSJ Goku for SDCC 2011 this year. So, they are still interested in this line and those Gokus are Pre sold out everywhere. I wouldn't call this line dead just yet.

This :lecture Don't get me wrong I like Gokou but Piccolo was never appreciated much and I allways found him a much more interesting character. Back in the day I remember watching DBZ on the Asian channel (can't remember what it was called) and they were allready on Android saga by the time CW aired the horrid Garlic Jr. saga and I remeber being excited seeing Piccolo merge with Kami and I thought this was Piccolo's time to shine! Sadly in the end it was all about the Saiyan as usual. Piccolo definitely deserved more respect than he got.

DBZ figuarts sold well, One Piece Figuarts did not do as well mainly because they were overproduced. Also Lots of fans were not happy with the sculpts as there spoiled by the great sculpting on POP series. However One Piece Figuarts have been doing much better after the introduction of Figuarts Zero line as you can use parts from Zero line Like appendix. Also Sanji is considered a big improvement with the SH figuarts series, only they forgot to put in his most default face parts..

More DBZ and One Piece SH Figuarts will be announced this year!!! Please Wait For It!!!

No new solicitations but The US distributor Bluefin was taking a vote for the next figure on twitter very recently. They are also the same company that are selling the SSJ Goku and Rockman X exclusive at SDCC. Bluefin is the official distributor of Tamashii product in USA.

Hell yeah. Those 3 would rock! Cell is my all time favorite villain in the series, and it would go great with everyone else. Goku, Gohan, Piccolo, and Vegeta all fit in with the Cell saga look! It's perfect! And Future Trunks is just a straight up badass. :yess:

I like the paint jobs in these new figuarts figures. I ordered the sdcc ex 2011 goku, and the painting has more shadowing and color contrasts than the previous super saiyan version.

Here's another figure (non-figurarts version) I came across today.

I also don't know the company making these, but they hosted a custom statue tournament and let people vote on the winners. Here are the final colored versions. Sorry about the link; I had to use google translate and it's low resolution. If I find better pics I'll post some.

Someone asked for perfect cell, and he is one of the statues. I've attached ssj gohan as saiyaman, perfect cell, and piccolo. The rest are on the link below. Ssj3 goku, ssj2 battle goku, the professor, and one of the androids. Hard to decide which ones to get.

Only SS.

Piccolo, SS Goku, SS Gohan and now SS Vegeta are the only figures released. There was a repaint of Goku that was some kind of exclusive but he was still SS.

I'd prefer they were all regular versions but considering how long they've been doing this line and how few characters have come out it seems unlikely. I'd love a Future Trunks but I'd want his purple hair.

Because their magic hair is just that bright? :dunno :lol

I'm not sure what retail was on these guys originally - I think between $40 - $50 from the US sellers I've seen. Figuarts seems to re-release them every few months so I would wait or check Ebay for deals.

There was one displayed in a toy show ages ago (along with SS3 Gokou), but sadly they haven't bothered with releasing it yet, because the face sculpt looks really good.

ok, cool. are they still relatively affordable, or are they all at wallet-rape prices now?

also, why are the super sayian versions in lighter colored clothing?

Were did you get Piccolo from BBTS? Amazon? HLJ? I really love this line. Closest thing to DBZ Revoltechs we are going to get.

The reason why their clothes are lighter in Super Saiya-jin mode is to depict the glow that encompasses them when they transform. Like that awesome transformation at the end of the opening in the group shot.

I also tried to post pics and attach a web ink, too. Does the forum not allow that? Anyhow, thanks for the pic. The kamehameha Goku is my favorite. I hope it will still get released. I read somewhere that with ending of dragon ball Kai, they were canceling the figuarts line as well. I have the sdcc goku, and the coloring is much better. Better shadow contrast and darker. I'm glad amazon is offering vegeta for $30(hopefully) on preorder with the free shipping.

I find these to be superior to Revoltech in every way. I'm always frustrated with the clicky joints.



what's this dragonball kai?

Most current DBZ products have Kai on the name due to the ongoing "DBZ Kai" series which is basically the original anime with all the filler edited out. I haven't seen it but I imagine you can probably bang through the whole series in about a third of the time without the 15 minute powerups and staring contests. Though, I admit, I think the filler kind of adds to the charm of the series.

I don't know, they're just display goods, but never actually announced for release. They showed a sculpt for Vegeta in the same fair, and it took them a year and a half before deciding to release it.

The way the joints are engineered in these SHFs are miles ahead of Revoltechs though. You get far more freedom with posing, instead of it clicking into certain set positions. Better paint app. and sculpts in general too.

Nice review Dr. Teng! The one edge this version really does have over the Japanese version is that the irises are larger, which is the way they are meant to be.

The original does have some shading in the hair though, although it's very subtle, and doesn't show up in the pictures a lot of the time.

The One Piece ones from what I've heard and seen, are at least a couple levels down in terms of quality and likeliness though.

I'm pretty sure most don't. At least the DB and Kamen Riders don't. The only ones that consistently come with effect parts are the Ultraman figs from the Ultra-Act line.

I have an English review for the regular Goku here (as well as one for Piccolo and Gohan) in my blog here in case any one would like to see the differences between that and the SDCC version:

Trunks has long hair and his Caps Corp jacket has cutoff sleeves. It sort of makes sense because he starts wearing the Saiyan armor during the Cell games and I don't think we ever see his jacket again.

Age 767 Exact Date Unknown
Android 13, Android 14, and Android 15 are unleashed. #14 and #15 are killed by Future Trunks and Vegeta. Android 13 transforms into "Super Android 13" but is killed by Goku.[20]
Age 767 between May 20th and the 25th
The Z Fighters are invited to New Planet Vegeta by Paragus. Vegeta is offered to take up a new Saiyan throne but must kill the Legendary Super Saiyan first. Goku is contacted by King Kai about the power of the Super Saiyan. He also goes to New Vegeta. Paragus' son Broly is revealed to be the Saiyan of legend. He is defeated by Goku but survives and crash lands on Earth. [21]

So if the prophecy was that there was a saiyan of legend, does it actually mean goku was really the saiyan of legend since he defeated brolly? Is that the cool plot twist to make you think it's brolly when it is really goku? It makes sense for the entire storyline (dbz and dbz gt) that goku is the end all be all best saiyan, but I didn't know if that was the intention of the brolly story. Or is it simply that brolly was the legend of saiyan, and goku is so awesome he beat him, period?

True. I think the movie about trunks' sword origin fit in just fine, too. In the return of brolly, goku is dead already, so I think they are loosely tired to major story segments alternate dimension style. The fusion movie kind of fit, too with vegeta being dead during majin buu? It's been too long since jive seen those to remember the stories. A majin buu gotenks or majinn buu gohan would be a cool figure with vegetto.

You get a rough idea or whenever it takes place during the main storyline, but it just doesn't make sense for them to 'take time off' in the middle of a crisis to take care of another crisis.

In the manga right before Vegeta self destructs, he asks Piccolo whether he'll be able to retain his body to train like Gokou did, and he says no.

The one with the origin of Trunk's sword doesn't really click together if you think about it. Because everyone else is already dead/weaker than the androids in Future Trunks' timeline, hence none of those events would have taken place, with Gokou being able to turn into SS3 and so forth.

They're fun films to watch though.

Yeah I remember that in one movie (can't remember which) they obviously want Vegeta to be a Super Saiyan even though it hadn't happened on the series yet so they just added some narration at the beginning like "So Goku taught Vegeta how to be a Super Saiyan!" Ya know, while they were hanging out. :lol

I don't mind the inconsistencies, though. IMO it's worth it to see the fights with much more detailed animation.

Though I've gotten rid of most of my DBZ figures from when I was a teen and have lost interest in DBZ in general, a figure of Broly or Future Trunks with sword would be hard to pass up.

The old ones where you could only move the arms and take their hairs and upper body attires off. lol

They looked great for it's time. And the remolded ones based off them look like crap.

Why is there orange on the Goku's chest/arms?

I've just thrown out some of them, mainly ones with broken or missing bits, but have also kept some.

I've never seen that Gohan one with black hair and Goku's outfit from the Buu saga though.

Of the lot, I reckon Vegeta, Brolly and Piccolo were probably the most accurate.

My favourite series of old DBZ figures were the model kits where you had to build the core body, and they came with rubber outfits, which looked really good for its time. They even came with the head for normal mode and SS mode.

COSMOSTARX
09-10-2011, 01:21 AM
I'm not sure why their chest is orange. I had a few of these but have long since broken or threw them out when I was younger. There's more in the collection I believe.

I bought these when they first came out as well.

The Japanese version were better quality than the HK ones. I think they stop releasing these after brolly, the one with Gohan in the helmet outfit, cell were so ugly that I stop buying them.

There was also a three Saiyajin combo Japanese version right? Those were the best. The hair was gold instead of yellow.

My cousin had the model kit with rubber pants. It was perfect for posing. I second the swifter trunks figure. Wish there was some way to leave figuarts feedback. The hybrid trunks toy figure seems like a close concept of what it could be.

BBTS also had the pre order for the Medicom Naruto figures at about $300 before, & now the pre order price is around $260. So I guess a price decrease might happen for this figure also :D

Part of the reason I didn't purchase the SDCC Goku, was because of the purple wrist & waist bands. & now I see SSJ3 Goku has the same thing :slap

Still pre ordered though :lol

Glad you liked them Hydeous! The joints for the SHF figures really are very well engineered. Any plans to get Piccolo?

The regular Goku was shown at an exhibit about a year and a half ago together with SS3, the uncoloured sculpt for Vegeta, and the coloured proto for Gohan. With the recent onslaught of those long forgotten figures getting a release as exclusives. I'd say it'll follow in the fashion of SS3 and will be released in the same format a couple of months down the line.

Just buy them on ebay, shouldnt be that much of a difference. Might be even cheaper too, in some cases.

No energy effects yet. I'm guessing they will come with later, with less popular figures, as to add the sales factor to them. Ive seen Bandai doing this scheme often with their products.

Considering this is basically just another reissued Goku with just a different headsculpt.

They have already done 3 Gokus now, if you consider the SDCC ones.

I'd rather get a regular Goku, as I'm a fan of the series only after the Cell era. After that, the whole Majin Boo onwards, story, characters and the design just blows and plain sucks.

$70 is still ridiculous for a figure you already have which you bought at $30-40, but only with a different head. I'm going to play the waiting game on this one.

But I'm shocked Bandai didn't tack on extra accessories to give people better incentive to buy a product they almost have already.

Personally I think Bandai has always been lazy. They've made the same old characters over and over again. Goku, Piccolo, Vegeta, and Gohan.

How big is the statue? It seems to look good, classic scene. Sometimes I think the best DBZ collectibles are probably statues, since the action-figures are always way off/directed at kids save for these SHFs.

Cant wait for Vegeta and the SS3, and the next SHF DBZ figure. I think and I hope its Future Trunks with Sword, like what the poll shows.

Nice and tidy! Wish I had the space to display each SHF on their own stand.

Is there a better clip with that Stage Act 4 to hold Piccolo up? I only have the Stage 3s, and struggled to find a spot on Piccolo to clip it onto while he's cloaked.

Liking the Shadow Moon and Rider #1 on the level below too. :P

:lol I had similar problems putting on the clip as well, as the head will pop off due to the width of the clip:slap

What i did is just use the rod and take off the clip. Surprisingly it holds him quite well. Try it!

How can you tell the SHF riders just by looking at the edges:monkey1:rotfl

How big is the statue? It seems to look good, classic scene. Sometimes I think the best DBZ collectibles are probably statues, since the action-figures are always way off/directed at kids save for these SHFs.

I kinda considered getting the Chozo Art Collection SS Goku recently, but unfortunately the 2nd version available in the market now has odd translucent hair instead of normal shaded ones.

He's 14 inches tall. You can pull the frieza out separately. The guy selling it is the guy who designed it. He sells them on eBay. Search for trunks frieza statue. If you are going to get one, pm me so I can let him know I referred you. I'm sure he'll try to offer you a discount of some sort. He has other statues, too, for Dbz, like buu after he swallowed Gohan. Again, if you are interested in buying from him, let me know so I can try to get you a discount since I just bought one from him. When I get it in the mail next week, I'll try to post a pic and do a small review of it in-hand. This has been my favorite statue I've seen so far for dbz. Definitely my favorite trunks statue. Hope it matches the quality of what I see on the auction.

they'll just ship whatever you have ordered and are instock right now together, unless you have a special request.

Thanks Hydeous!

Ordered 2 items actually, one is instock and the other is on backorder. I think they're still waiting for the backorder item to be instock before they charge me & ship.

I know them like the back of my hand because I've got all those too. They come out so regularly, it's like being on auto-debut every month. :lol

I'll try the idea with just using a rod, good thinking outside the box!

HLJ basically works like this. They don't ship unless all items within the SAME order number (basically, if you check out at the same time) are in stock, unless it's been on order for over 2 months. So in your case, they'll charge and ship your 2 items together, unless the back-order takes more than 2 months.

They've got great customer service, but aren't good at grouping pre-orders, because pre-orders usually go up at least 3 months prior to the release date. And there's nothing worst than having multiple items pre-ordered in the same month, but having to see them shipped out individually week by week. :gah:

oh I just checked (since my friend is the one who helped me out), use the flat type of the head of the clip, on the rod. But dont use the clips. Put it vertically, should be flat and stable and grip the inside of Piccolo's cape.

Hope that helps, if you are still unsure, lemme know and I'll try to get some pics for you :wave

Shouldve made regular Goku as the exclusives. That one would sell at $70-80 no doubt.

Nope. That's why BBTS is my go-to for all things that sideshow doesn't carry.

That, and fairly excellent customer service and replacement policies as well.

Yes, they have slightly higher prices than most other retailers, but they will take care of you.

Even after, actually ( if your credit card declines) . As long as it's NOT in your pile of loot, then there is a restocking fee if you cancel.

im pretty sure they dont come with stands - i have SS Son Gokou and SDCC SS Son Goku (which i havent opened yet!) and i cant recall Goku coming with a stand, my box is in the loft though so i cant check, but from unoxing reviews on youtube i cant see any.

this is how i have Goku displayed at the moment

i'm thinking of putting a blue shirt over him like in his fight against freeza.
