I paid about £120 for mine a few months ago. A lot of money but a great looking figure, just done £90 on Krillin, and as good as they look when spending that amount of money there’s always a fear a 2.0 will be released just around the corner. I’m in the same boat now with 17 and 18, so much money for 2 small action figures but really want them.
And FYI there are two versions. The one I am reviewing is the version with yellow warning text in the bottom left side of the box while missing the Bandai Logo and there is also another version with red warning text also missing the Bandai logo.
I won the bootleg as part of an eBay lot. I DO NOT recommend it for anything other than parts. The lot didn't have the Kamehameha or the energy effect so I have no word on the quality of those parts.
The joints are absolutely terrible. I went so far as to try to swap the joints by stripping a bootleg SS Goku (which is 100% better than this crap) but it didn't end well. Nothing on this figure is tight or secure so you can simply pull the thing apart. You can salvage the head. The face's are hit or miss but the hair is okay. The neck joint was.. garbage... I don't even know where the hell it came from. Mine looked like the one used for the SS3 2.0 head (that weird squared plug joint). The torso is solid with the obvious skin tone issues but they at least got the Turtle and King Kai Logo right. The pinkish red used isn't bad but the highlighted areas were done very poorly. The shoulder peg that plugs into the "gut" is too small so that explains the floppy arms. The neck joint simply popped off when I tried to move it but can be popped back in. The shoulder sleeves love to pop out. The arms are fine but have visible nub marks. The joint for the hands are trash. They both broke when I tried to take the fists off so i had to drill out the broken peg before I could swap those. The belt is fine, its molded in that same dark red brown as the under shirt is and good for spare parts. *Note* If you pay attention to the box photos I have linked, the waist was actually put on backwards. It looks to be common for this figure and 100% confirms how crap of it is. The screw that hold the waist together is hidden behind a panel (the butt) and the idiots put it on wrong. Luckily the plastic fort
the legs are so rubbery that you can simply pop them off and spin the torso the correct way. The legs can hold the figure up but its so loose that it could pull off some good kicking action like the old DBZ sticking action figures. The boots are also loose and you can easily pull them off and disassemble the entire ankle joint system. I was able to fully disassemble the figures and swap the bootleg SSJ Gokus joints in and they helped somewhat. I added a thin layer of glue to all the ball joints and they held pretty nice. However when I was doing arm rotations the right arm broke off so I ended up just gluing the arm to the torso. It was easy enough as I filled the inner joint in and then glued the sleeve to the torso. It held nicely and i can still rotate the lower arm, elbow, wrist. I glued the legs in the standing position since the broken arm instantly turned this into a semi pose-able statue.
I give it a 1/10 only because of the spare parts you can salvage from this but do yourself a favor and spend money on REAL figures.
