In this thread, we will be discussing anything, and everything to do with the S.H. Figuarts Super Saiyan Vegeta (Premium Color Edition). It's OK to go off topic, but lets try and mostly stay on the topic of Super Saiyan Vegeta. Thanks!
Release Date: December 2015 Price: $36.99

Now that everything's calmed down...
Paint job seems slightly duller on this one. No shading either which sucks but that's the price we pay for getting more releases. Costs gotta be cut somewhere. Boot tips are cool but would it hurt to add some detail? May get it, but I personally like the original better at first glance.
I'm personally loving the shading in this picture, and I'm so glad they have shading for the hair. They certainly could have added the lines to the end of the boots, but I don't honestly care. It's got my pre-order, 100%
I know that I will end up getting this just for the sake of having an official Vegeta. The hair and face certainly seems better than any Datong. I'm not dead set on his blue shade, but it's not terrible. Between him, my Datong, and the Datong Trunks head I'll get some sort of optimal arrangement.

I'm not liking the bodysuit. The dull colour and zero shading make it look not as good. I find it a little odd that they gave Trunks darker/richer colours and didn't give Vegeta a nice rich blue for his bodysuit. I agree that the boot tips are lazy, too. They could have fixed up a new barbell peg or something to get the Vegito boots to work on him.

I prefer the shading on the original, but this still looks good. Have to wait to see it in person to decide which one is better. Too bad it doesn't have the lines on the boot, gonna have to paint them myself.
The painted toes is lazy. Couldn't they give him the Vegito feet with the lines sculpted into the toes?
Those boots look a little big on Vegeta. Not too bad, but noticeable. Would've been nice if they'd re-sculpted these boots to have the lines instead. Would've made it easier for me to paint in the lines too.
I really like him, I do think the original ia slightly better, but this one is great too. I only didn't like the new hair color but oh well. and those boot tips are just pure laziness, I would rather have it white as the original.
You haven't figured it out yet? I'm the Saiyan who came all the way from Earth for the sole purpose of beating you. I am the warrior you've heard of in legends, pure of heart and awakened by fury. That's what I am. I AM THE SUPER SAIYAN, SON GOKU!
I really like how the vegeta came out so at least one will be picked up. While the painted toes aren't the best at least we got them. That aura effect looks amazing as well. Might be my first special effect I purchase.
