    Still haven't bothered to watch Tiger & Bunny, but I have a couple of the SHFs and want to add Blue Rose.

    I paid for shipping for my Den-O Gun and Rod 2-pack. I went EMS, since mail comes slower this time of year, and I don't have the patience to wait 3-4 weeks for something that would normally take 2 to get here.

    Some quick shots.

    Retake of SS Gohan. Gave it a different pose and angle so it actually looks decent.

    Those are the Solar Flare hands and the ones I remember from the show. You are probably referring to the extended middle and index finger hand, while not wrong, the most common and used one in the show is the open hand one which I used. You can even google "DBZ solar flare" and just about every photo result has the open hands. Looking at the results, theres really only one photo/scene I see and that has Krillin with the 2 fingers, which seems to be the only one time anyone has ever done the solar flare with 2 fingers. That could've been a mess up or an experimentation in the manga/anime, IDK. Its like on Bleach where Kubo Tite originally had Ulquiorra's hole on his neck, but moved it down the his chest. As a long time DB fan, I go by what I know and not by one googled image. So its really up to you.

    I should've but I really just wanted to get a pic of the Solar Flare shot in front of a light source. I just remembered I did that before with Goku though, but I think in his case, it was the Kamehameha.

    For size reference from the series...

    An Earth Dragon Ball should fit in the palm of your hand while a Namekian Dragon Ball should be similar size or larger than your head.

    Now simply scale that for Figuarts ^_^

    1/4" or 5/16". Measuring Vegeta's hand, looks like 5/16" would fit it pretty good. 3/8" looks like it would be too big.
