    Completely agree with you both. With everything else coming out, it seems keeping up with Dragonball so much harder. And the fact taht they just keep releasing variations of the same characters.

    I’ve passed on a fair amount of the Dragon Ball releases but I have pretty much everyone I really want. Yamcha and Tien was at that point when most of this line was selling and would be cheaper if you wait so told myself I’d only get them if they were on sale. Tien I do kinda wish I had but I’m not bothered by it. Same with the Broly movie version of Vegeta. Only really wanted the heads.

    I'm at the same point as you. I quit awhile back and missed out on a bunch. Started again this year and finally caught up (minus whiz, beerus, and roshi). Now i'm regretting catching up and thinking about selling all of them once again. I don't feel the same joy of getting them like I do with my MP figures. The rate these figures come out make it feel almost burdensome. I feel like I'm just getting them to not miss out at this point and it's too much work to sell 60+ figures so I just keep collecting instead of fully quitting hahah.

    Luckily I've reached the point where I'm pretty happy with my DBZ Figuarts collection. It's mainly focused on the Saiyans anyways and now the only ones I'm hoping they make are Goten and Kid Trunks. I've passed on most of the new releases.

    While i'm sitting here waiting for some new stuff or more 2.0s (where tf is Krillin???), that's basically me, haha.

    At least we have Vegito, Piccolo 2.0, Zamasu and Kid Gohan, among some others, soon to be a nice change of pace for the year.

    Got UI Goku in last week alongside my 3rd copy of MMC's Onslaught (returned the first, sold the second) and MMC's Re-edited Drift. Looks awesome and feels the part as well.

    I don't mind there being a lot of Gokus since they keep a diverse cast coming out (compared to other lines), but this became a line where you have to either preorder the figures or buy them the first week they came out in order to not have to deal with the secondary mark-up.

    I guess if anything, there is the US Bandai line which Bandai appears to finally be taking seriously based on how well 17, 18, and a few recent figures I saw look.

    If they keep going with the original DB line, specifically Yamcha and Launch, I could see clearing out the handful of DBZ figures I've accumulated. I mean I'll watch Z and Super if they're on but the original is actually fun to watch for its own sake.

    for me the last figure like that was goku black and maybe SS3 goku. i'm still mad i pre-ordered full power broly and SSB goku, those hit when BBTS had to start charging CA tax. but those were the last two bluefin releases i paid full price for everyone from then to just before ultra instinct goku i got for cheap from amazon or barnes.

    I feel it’s gone in phases. They had some releases where maybe they produced too much and they went to clearance then underproduced a bunch of guys like Goku Black and people started preordering again. I just so happened to preorder him and remembered even before I got mine people saying he couldn’t be found anywhere. Now it feels like most releases are back to hanging around a bit. I’m glad I skip what doesn’t feel essential or isn’t the version I want. Like with Buu I want a kid Buu so I passed on the last two (KO Super Buu could be worth it). The bigger figures do seem a harder sell. Maybe just the cost.

    Got my first Figuarts figure today, Sailor Mars! It's still really easy (and fairly cheap, $44 shipping included) to get the Sailor Moon figures.

    Also, I really need to get some alternate backgrounds.

    He came out last month in Japan so he should've been due this month unless the current state of the world affected Bluefin's shipment

    as far as SHF DBZ goes, I just collected Vegeta since he's my favorite. Of course I've got (just about), one at each level for my display, Saiyan Saga, SS1(this is Supers line), SS2/Majin(although, I wish he was or the option was there for a battle damaged, final showdown with Buu version, and SS God Vegeta. All SHF minus one, and that is all I have lol. Along with the movie collectibles 8" version from the Return of Cooler. It makes for a pretty neat display together on a Detolf shelf.

    I admit though, I do want the final Showdown Cap like no tomorrow and maybe a few others like Scarlet Witch and mk 85 Iron Man.
