    Any of you think bandai will go beyond SFV for more SF Figuarts? I'm very partial to the Capcom designs from the 90's, especially from mid-late 90's. For example have you seen the art books that had the designs/art from SF-II-Alpha-3rd Strike? I like those designs far more than the Powerstone-esque designs of SFIV/V.

    Of the 3 classic characters in the Figuarts line, Cammy and Chun Li don't look too exaggerated so I might pick them up. Even with Ryu it's not as exaggerated as SFIV/V, yet I can tell those game were definitely the primary inspiration.

    No i was there yesterday as well. I just got to post today because i didnt get back to MD until about 11:30. Nah everything at that counter was overpriced and it was taxed. I really wanted SOC Megazord but at $353 after tax i'd rather wait on my PO of $269.99. Trunks and TP are less than $40 on Amiami so i went that route. I wreally wanted Chun and Ryu but i have them on PO at Amiami.

    Opened WT Body Kun. He comes with everything the DX came with minus the stand. I really like all the tampoed on stuff. As a souvenir figure i think its great.

    Should've asked before, but did anyone that went to the event buy any extra Kaiohken Goku for fellow collector's that couldn't make it out there?

    Really want that Goku, but maybe they'll also make it SDCC exclusive like they did with regular Goku.

    So when is Amazon going to get more buidling sets in? It seems like they are out since the only thing listed are ones not available through Prime.

    And an obligatory one (if only I had the blue Figure-rise aura effect).

    I think my biggest surprise about that Goku is that it uses the old-style DBZ box and not the updated white one. Since I'll be at SDCC, I'm hoping this makes its way there too (along with the RS Mass-Prod. Zaku, which I think I want more) but I'm not holding my breath.

    So the Steelbook is basically the same steelbook as the Best Buy version in the US (at least I think it is, based on what I recall of the packaging art used)? Interesting. Specialist looks nice too. I've thought about going after this just for the figure. I don't bother with most SW SHFs, but the Death Trooper design is one of the few that stands out to me and I already picked up the normal retail one.

    Super Saiyajin God Gokuu and Shenron are set for release in october according to the last issue of the Shounen Jump.

    I couldn't care less about worst Gokuu but Shenron is REALLY welcome. I hope kid Gokuu will follow soon.

    Nice pics. Lucky I'm not into Dragonball or Street Fighter, but my brother is... Been wondering which SF series to get him if I do.

    Is there a State's side Rocket yet, and what does it come with?

    And where's Peach? Or Daisy with a racket. I'd love to have those two characters from my karting and tennis days.

    Rumor from out of the Tamashii Nations Tour in NYC this weekend is Rocket & Baby Groot are NOT coming to the US from Bluefin. :( 

    And it's been so long since we saw something for the Mario line that I feel it is dead. Sure would have loved Peach to round it out though.

    Thanks for reminding me. Figuarts capes aren't really that great unless you are a fan of static capes.

    No Shredder on display:cry 

    Also, for this looking at purchasing GotG Star-lord, check out anime-island.com. I know I keep pimping them, but they keep having a cheap price. He is 64 before shipping at AE right now, but if you go through anime-island, they have him listed at 79.99 and you can use a 10% off code and any points you've accrued to knock it down more in addition to free shipping. My total was a shade under $70 shipped and he comes with the effect parts (which i don't really care about, but when I can get them for the same price I'd have paid for just the figure, why not).

    I started using them after you probably mentioned them before. Some policies they have are annoying, for instance, you have to pay full up front to get the full discount, otherwise it only applies to the deposit you pay. Other than that, they indeed can have the lowest pricing on a lot of items.

    I still see no confirmation that the Japanese release of Star Lord doesn't come with effects. It is shown in all the pictures at the Japanese sites. I don't care about Star Lord but just curious if anyone knows for sure and I do want Rocket. It will be my first MCU SHF and mainly because there is little to no difference with the current comic version.
