I'm still waiting for my Clone Goku & t-shirt to be delivered.

If you ordered the t-shirt you got screwed because it got delayed and they are not sending the clone alone.
Serious? On the 14th I received an email saying my order was preparing to ship and I was charged for my order. No updates since then.

That's what I read in a SHF fb group.

Oh man, SS4 Goku is nice. You get a nice array of hands, some you don't normally get with Goku, like some sorta open palm hands, but not the same ones we have with most DB figures. Has 2 IT hands, plus a second set of KMHMH hands with pegs to hold the charging 10x KMHMH. 4 faces. Updated knee, hip, and shoulder/butterfly articulation. Hair articulates out of the way. Loses the "kick its own ass" ability, though.

Also, first Goku that can pull off proper KMHMH pose.

Hope Ten + Chaozu move as scheduled. They’re the last big gets for my heroes shelf since I sold the originals.

I wanted to love this SS4 Goku, but at the moment it’s just good. The joints are either really stiff or floppy, no inbetween. Ankle range seems very limited, forward and back is floppy, side to side stiff. The ‘ankle wraps’ stop it getting more range. The knees are very tight. The hips annoy me, they’re just ball jointed into the pelvis so they offer gappy. If I’m holding the leg, the body just flops forward. The back of the pelvis piece doesn’t allow the legs to move back, no lunging poses unless you do it sideways and exposes the flat/unsculpted part of the hip joint.
Not much forward bend at the waist or diaphragm, you’re relying on the hip range to get the most out that bend (the hip range is pretty excellent, apart from backwards). Not much side to side movement in the torso.
Arms are very good (yet not enough friction in the joints so they knock out of place easily).
Shoulder range is very good, it’s essentially Mafex style shoulders.
Neck is annoying, the sculpt only allows for forward (same as most dbz necks). The head bobbles around too much, same with the hair pieces.
And the face plates don’t stay in on my copy, keep ending up with this gap at the top of the forehead.

The sculpt is mostly excellent, texture on the torso is good (even texture on the joints in the elbow and shoulder), still wish the hips and legs were a bit narrower. Paint’s good, but could benefit from a slight wash, only the legs have any sort of shading.

I’m going to take it apart and try to tighten some joints and loosen others, maybe add a couple of mm to the neck joint, hopefully I’ll fell better about it. My excitement and expectations for this figure were super high so want it to come close.

I got a Chinese knockoff of the Sage Naruto and i've gotta say, it isn't bad. There is some noticable paint slop, the stand was cheap quality (the peg got stuck in the Rasenshuriken and it broke) and some joints are loose, but other than that it is really good.

Anyone have any of the new third party SHF Dragon Ball figures? The DF Majin Vegeta with eating face, CEA SS4 Vegeta (kinda looks based on Figure-Rise?), and the Kong Studios SS4 Vegito Xeno.

Wondering if they're quality products.

Just got an update that they, or at least mine, aren't shipping until end of December. C'mon Santa!
