A16 is available now. Maybe it was a glitch or something? Or they just have a set number of "batches" with x amount of figures or something.

The banner about today isn't gone on the Bandai shop yet, so wondering if that is still happening.

Does anyone feel like this preorder ruins the exclusive nature of the SDCC exclusives? Now what will all those people who fought to get tickets to buy them, went to the con, waited in line, and bought 2 each day and then more last night in the hopes of making a solid profit do?

Oh, and I had to guess, BBTS doesn't have them yet because they went up on a weekend. Wouldn't be surprised to see them on there with healthy markup later today.

I didn't even notice there was a Pick up and Chicago listing.

That is strange, then, especially that A16 would be the first to go.

I think because these come out so much later you at least get the benefit of walking out the door with a figure if you buy at SDCC, instead of waiting until March which will likely become April or May of next year if you order online. So while not exclusive, you at least get to enjoy the figures longer, Bandai gets the attention they want, and eventually other folks get a shot. Ultimately I don't know why exclusives exist though - would less people go by the Bandai booth if they weren't there? Would anyone not go to SDCC?

Yes, Gohan is as good as you’ve heard. He’s spectacular. No, I didn’t have time to pose them any better. Image

Also decided to remove the poorly distributed shading on Goku, since it’s only on the front and it bugged me. Also hit everyone with the matte spray.

Gohan was actually my least favorite, his shoes are goofy af and his neck is way too thick.

I agree the neck looks a bit too thick, but the shoes are accurate to the source material and they’ve grown on me. The main draw here is Ultimate Gohan wearing Piccolo’s colors. It’s what I’ve always wanted!

Vegeta is easily my least favorite, though like with all the others, his new faces are excellent. The best he’s ever had.

I patiently waited until Mezco played their hand at comic-con to see what else Ultraman they had for the One:12 Collective line and they had nada. Took that as my queue to preorder the rerelease of Ultraman Tiga and Zetton. I have not watched any reviews but Tiga looks fantastic however his aftermarket scalper price wasn't at all appealing. Zetton I playe the price game with on his release and lost, so its great to have him for a good price as well.

Yeah, anyone buying exclusives to feel special or make a profit can go kick bricks.

Took some extra shifts at my second job, and was able to place one bulk order for both Gammas & Turles! Definitely wanted to avoid $30 in shipping, and was thankfully able!

Off topic but life gets overwhelming so take it easy guys & enjoy the simple things like these figures.

Love Gohan, he's my favorite from the movie figures, they did him justice for the price point.

I just got the $35 Freiza in the mail, and wow. Quality to price ratio is off the charts.
