But you have to consider the lack of significance in this form and the improvements that many of the other figures need. Everyone could use an improvement whether on scale or color, but this wasn't one of them. Oh well.
Collection Goal Update: 501 Characters Down, 499 To Go
he dosent go with any other figure in the line until they release nappa next year in his same one time colors. That's what really sucks is that as soon as they let us know for sure that nappa will be made in his armor we will already know what next years sdcc will be taking all the fun out of the wait.
The way you wrote that almost made it sound like Nappa was officially scheduled for release, and I want to make sure that doesn't end up as a rumor.
Nappa without armor is definitely not being considered, and Nappa in armor is something that I had to really suggest with a lot of emphasis when I was working at A-kon, because I was told he isn't (necessarily) currently being considered either.
Nappa isn't a definite figure at all. Which is unfortunate, because I'd like to be restricted from talking about him, like I am some other stuff mentioned to me, but that isn't the case as far as I know!
If you guys want Nappa, you're going to have to start telling Bluefin on facebook and twitter , especially since he wasn't a character in my polls here (because he was not said to be cancelled back when I made the polls almost a year ago). He'll be in my new polls after SDCC is over, and he'll be getting one of my votes.
We need a figuarts Nappa Bandai! Otherwise, what's the point of having Vegeta in Saiyan Saga armor? It's like buying a new pair of shoes and only getting the left shoe!
To be honest I love this figure. It's unique and at least Tamashi thought out of the box. I was hoping for an actual exclusive (Nappa)but I understand how its really expensive for them to create a new mold just to have an exclusive for a convention that's only a few days. But I honestly prefer this to the SS Vegeta and will be getting a few of these. A lot of people are saying they won't be getting the figure but just give them time and they'll start regretting not getting one once they're sold out which I guarantee you they will.
Out of the box? lol "Hey guys, lets repaint this and release it?" Like I said, they're pulling a Jakks on you Figuart collectors. It isn't right.
Out of the box would be someone like Captain Ginyu, whom no one ever really mentions.<br/>
I so agree with you adrenaline. They are making dirt cheap "exclusive figures" by recycling molds of things they have already used. I think its almost safe to say that all future SDCC exclusive figures will be recycled mold repaints. I think its a crock of sh1t. This is the biggest one. I think people wanted a anime piccolo. I know I did. But an arlian vegeta? Besides a couple die hards who the phuck cares about arlian vegeta. Ghey.
He's just not exactly what many of us were all hoping for, because we got our hopes up waaaay higher than they should have been. Expecting an exclusive mold for a limited comic con release is a lot to ask. Hopefully this will increase Nappa demand, which will increase Raditz demand, which may increase demand for other early DBZ characters. I imagine we still have around 1 year before DBZ Kai's Buu Saga is on TV or DVD in English, so with any luck, Bandai/Bluefin won't get tunnel-vision and focus on Buu Saga characters too much right now. Just my hope... let's finish up the Cell Saga cast and delve into the Saiyan and Namek saga stuff.
Irwin got tunnel-vision when Buu Saga was on Cartoon Network, and so we ended up with tons and tons of awesome Buu Saga figures and barely any Saiyan Saga or Namek Saga figures at all. The few Saiyan and Namek Saga characters Irwin made were unfortunately not very well sculpted or painted.
If Buu Saga Kai is on the air this time next year, a SDCC repaint of SS3 Goku would be good, and they should release a Buu, Majin Vegeta, and some sort of grown up Gohan at that time or sooner.
But in the mean time, I'll continue hoping (and requesting) for other things I'd rather own!
Nappa! Yamcha with Puar! Tien with Chaozu! Raditz! Ginyu Force! "Let's make it happen Bluefin!"

Scalpers are already putting up pre orders for $200 bucks!! A total rip off and hopefully nobody considers buying when the original price is $45 and Bandai won't be sold out on them at SDCC. They will literally have tons and tons of extras for sale.

To anyone saying they are pulling a jakks on figuarts collectors is soooo wrong. They always do repaints for sdcc this is nothing.knew. to anyone thinking it was majin vegeta you obviously had your hopes way too high... they wont make am exclusive the japan market cant get it wont happen. This givez me hope for nappa as they would be crazy to make this without olanning to release him.

I'm satisfied with this release. I'm not really surprised, either. The SDCC figures have always been repaints. This really was the only major repaint that was left. Not extremely excited, but not extremely disappointed. He'll do just fine. Not sure if I want it, yet. I do dig the original animation colours, though. There's a certain charm to them.
I think the reason this has disapointed a lot of people is because they are missing an ssj vegeta from their collection. It's easy to point the finger at tamashii and say they've let the fans down, but it is a convention exclusive, it should be something to pick up as a memento of the event. We have had 3 gokus so far as regular releases, tamashii have said the saiyans sell, is it really a leap of the imagination to think we will be getting another ssj vegeta in the immediate future? They only really need to tool a new torso too, so if I was working there it would be a no Brainer. Lets focus on it being an Interetesting and unique figure, that is what it says on the tin; a fun exclusive that's is not an essential character for the collection.
golfingood...collector619 (selling one for the price of four)...rcos3...herocomplexshop...diva25...what dxckheads. The poll should be changed to include a new option. "I will buy as soon as all the eBay scalpers die in a horrible explosion and the exclusive is actually sold at the original $45 price."

This isn't something that people should be disappointed in! When I saw the SDCC exclusive this morning on Tamashii's facebook page, I'll admit, I was pretty bummed out. But realistically, if the SDCC exclusive is going to be sold everywhere for triple of four times the price, I'm happy it was Arlian Vegeta, because it's not a big character just like Adrenaline was saying.
If they had released anybody new, and the ebay market was selling them for 200$, how many of us would actually be happy about forking over that kind of money? I'm not paying $200 for Captain Ginyu!
If anybody will be picking this guy up from SDCC I will pay them 60$, as I feel that is a fair enough profit for the work they've done , not $200 bloody dollars!
As for the people saying that badman Vegeta would be the next exclusive, I tell you right now I'd buy him immediately! Now THAT would be an exclusive!! Ahha
