Oh my god, thank you so much I saw the Goku, but it didn't list what it was, nor did they have the sign in shot so I wasn't sure what it was exactly and no one has covered Bandai America's booth but now that I do know what it is it's some fantastic news
Those look a heck of a lot better than the current and previous Dragon Stars!! Their prototypes look janky though, like... I think Broly stubbed his toe. But I have to say... Broly is way smaller than Vegeta there so I bet he scales with 5 inch figures!!! AdrenalinePGVssj2dakota Edit: Wait a minute. Why does it say 5" Figures instead of Dragon Stars?!?!?! Is this a different line?! These figures don't have exposed joints! These must be different?!
It doesn't look like the people who posed them did a very good job. The SS3 Goku prototype looks cool, but we should not expect it to actually have cool, pointy hair...
Cell is looking great.
The Cell really looks great!
Here's pics of the Limit Breakers that are 12 to 13 inches tall.
I think it's funny that these Bandai America lines of figures seem to start with Goku and Vegeta, and they pretty much half ass them, and then the other figures in the line end up much better looking. This Goku's body is so boring. Meanwhile the Frieza looks fantastic... even if his head doesn't look like Golden Frieza at all.

I'm going to flip out if these are truly 5 inch scale figures. They don't have Dragon Stars articulation, so they might very well be something completely different! If they are, I am going to be SO EXCITED. I'll still want to get the Dragon Stars Broly, because this one is nowhere close to scale with this Vegeta and Goku, but if this Vegeta and Goku scale with Irwin/Jakks... OMG I can't tell you how happy I'd be.
I'm about to get really excited. Because they certainly don't have that sign in front of the Dragon Stars figures!!!!!!!!!!

I knew you'd lose your mind. Bandai previously had a $10 Power Rangers line which was 5 inches and intended primarily for kids in addition to larger $20 figures which were collector geared, so it looks like they're trying the same strategy here after their other kids based efforts have failed.

Oh wow, I hadn't even caught the lack of visible joints and the different name-- this may totally be a different line... Wow that's wild! Since the Dragon Stars often tend to be just slightly large to scale with SHF, I'm excited for the customizing possibilities, even if they may end up too small to be the actual characters they are (but, yknow, maybe a teenage Goten out of a Goku or somethin' like that). I'm excited!
These poor 5" prototypes got drunk before the fair. Poor Vegeta is now down, and on the floor.
The Broly will be too small for 5 inch scale, but would be excellent for a fairly easy shirtless Nappa custom I think. The Dragon Stars Broly (when it comes out) should be a good 5" scale size, so this doesn't concern me at all. The Vegeta seems rather long limbed, but shortening those might be possible. Goku looks fine. I can't wait for this line of figures! I hope they will make all sorts of DB Super and Broly movie characters in 5 inch scale!
I got a reply from one of the people I emailed. It was Derrick from the Dragon Stars blog page.
We haven’t really revealed much information about these figures, other than revealing them at Toy Fair.
As you can tell from the pictures, these are fairly flimsy models. Once we get further along in production, I will inform the community about the details of these figures.
I also invited him to make an account here, so he could post news directly!
