    I picked up the regular Son Goku awhile back on a whim. It's not bad. A good, solid model, but if you're used to the heft of an MG Gundam, you'll be somewhat disappointed, as the legs at least are quite hollow. Still, a solid build with a number of neat articulation gimmicks, and very posable.

    And I much prefer the scale of the Figuarts, so I've moved on to those instead.

    I'd consider getting them if bandai included effect parts. really, it's stupid for them not to.

    I'd get them. If I was any good with water slides.

    I'm waiting for Gotenks. Otherwise i don't really care about them. Maybe if a piccolo comes out, i'll build it for my friend who is a huge piccolo fan.

    I don't own them but I've heard good things about the models too. I would have picked them up if not for the scale - they're too tall to fit in with my 6-inch scale figures.

    Just kicking the mothballs off this thread for some shameless self promotion! I built the Figure-Rise Standard Frieza model kit for CDX. Leo will be reviewing the Super Saiyan Goku kit.

    If I was a bigger DBZ fan I'd be all over these. Pretty cool. Perfect Cell is also a pretty great kit going off the instructions. The layered parst effect for the faces is great since you don't need to rely on paint and stickers.

    It really was surprising to see how well this kit looks practically unpainted. Leo just posted his review for the Super Saiyan Goku. very nice.

    I saw a completed stock Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Son Goku kit in a Bluefin display at Barnes and nobles. For a kit built OOB it looked amazing. I was very surprised.

    How sturdy are these Figurerise Standard kits. Any of you break them? From what I read online, there were a number of Frieza's that had reported arm breakages. These are all polystyrene construction with no polycaps. I haven't built a Bandai kit in years so to see no polycaps on an articulated Bandai plamo kit this size, surprised me.

    As someone who has built 11 of them with two more on the way I can say that I have never had any issues with breakage. Though some light customizing does help a lot.

    No structurally the kits are fine right out of the box. Everything moves fine nothing falls apart. I meant more in an aesthetic sense. A little bit of paint or a Micron pen goes along way to improving the look. And even then half the ones I have have no cosmetic upgrades.

    It's funny you say that, as my Frieza's shoulders have become very sticky over time (especially the right). Of course, that might be because I gave it a (crappy) paint wash. My other kits (Gohan, 18, Buu, and SSJ4 Goku) are all fine and work great.

    I've been casually following them as they've been showcased on Dalong.net, and I'm impressed. If they were a little cheaper I'd probably just be collecting them from my love of plamo and TFS alone.

    It just reinforces my belief/desire that everything should have Bandai models. The world would be a better place I think if everything had a snap-build alternative.
