timone317, what they could do is take the mid-section of the Yamcha they need to make, and use that. Of course, if they make Yamcha (and Tien) correctly, they should be substantially larger bodied than Goku.
This is one of the few times in the series that they are directly together in the series, and a good demonstration of how Yamcha is an overall larger character than Goku. Ignore somebody's speech bubble they added. Yamcha is 5'11" at the end of DB, Goku is 5'7". I'm not sure Toriyama ever specifically said other heights as they grew older, however it's obvious that Goku became 5'9" and Yamcha stayed 5'11" or grew to 6'0" by Cell Saga.
This is BARELY useful as evidence since that Yo! Son Goku! special was not something from the 80s/90s, but I can't think of other times they were standing together.
Edit: I added another attachment. Also, I'm not meaning to steer this topic off-topic. So let's not make this topic about height discussion. I just want to demonstrate a statement of fact that Yamcha is supposed to be bigger than Goku and I hope that if Figuarts makes a Yamcha (and Tien) that they are bigger than the Goku figures they make.

Posting the whole list clutters up the forum but there Goku's 5'9 and yamcha's 6. Piccolo is 6'7. I myself am 6'5, so that's close to my height which I always felt as corresponding when I watched the show. Gohan's listed as 5'11 which means they're talking about post Cell saga height, and Gohan does always seem a tad bit taller than Goku. Another example is cell: Imperfect Cell - 7’0”, Semiperfect Cell - 7’6” , Perfect Cell - 6’9”. Which seems accoridngly with the previously mentioned characters.
So all in all I tend to keep this list in mind.
I'd very much like saiyan saga Goku because I have more use for that era reg Goku then the periods post his SSJ achievement. But seeing as they even make two seperate figures for the MMPR Red Ranger and the armoured Red Ranger, I don't think we'll get any figure that can have multiple saga appearances, unless they're veery minor differences, like perhaps Yamcha getting both hairstyles.

Was there a reason Majin Vegeta isn't on the list? I would think it would be a popular choice.
I didn't write any alternate versions into the list of characters we already have except Saiyan Saga Goku because he's, well, the star of the show. Majin Vegeta wouldn't be a bad choice for a figure! But I personally hope they make different characters for the next 5, rather than alternate versions of the same characters. (Btw, to me, Saiyan Saga/Namek Saga Gohan is different enough of a character, so that's why I only mentioned Goku). Also, I hope they don't start making Buu Saga characters yet unless they just want to get Super Buu into the assortment for right now.
I'd face palm big time if the next 5 figures in the Figuarts line are Ultimate Gohan, Great Saiyaman, Super Buu, Majin Vegeta, and Vegetto. Man, I would just be sick over that.
COMPLETELY agree with everything you said here btw. You just mentioned a few different points I've made on the sideshow forum as well.
Still don't see why people want bardock. Is it because they don't want to pay the price of the jakks figure or something?
Yeah. He is third here and first on the 15 character thread so there must be a market for him. Of course I would still get one if they release it but there are more important characters to come before we get to Bardock.

I think it matters that a character like Majin Vegeta isn't on there.
I'm sorry I keep saying this, I'll quit after this, but the fact that it's 5 and 15 picks does matter.
Can people who voted for Bardock say whether they'd have voted Bardock if the poll had only allowed you like 2 picks? Cause I swear I can't see Bardock winning that. I still don't believe Bardock is in the top 3 of most wanted figures. He's most wanted quantitatively in that lots people are like, yeah, I'd get him. But are there really this many people screaming for Bardock? With what's been released so far, Bardock really is your top like 3 most wanted figuarts right now?
I mean it's okay, don't get me wrong, but in that case I am totally out of touch with the average DBZ fan.
Personally I think Vegetto/Vegito is nonsensical to include until there's an appropriate Buu made and some of the other Buu Saga Characters (to add variety to the line--because Vegetto would basically require a Buu Saga Vegeta to be made to make displaying Goku and Vegeta in fusion poses kind of fun, but a third Vegeta figure this soon really isn't what I'd call variety!). Once the version of Buu is released that he fights, then I think it would be okay to make him, but I think it'd be better if I guess Gotenks, Goten, Trunks, and an adult Gohan were made first. (Sidenote--typing that made me a little sick to my stomach, I dislike the cast of characters from Buu saga, it was just a bunch of boring Saiyans to me, all of which are wearing orange/blue except for Trunks and Gotenks).
DBZ doesn't get much more boring than just seeing these guys standing next to each other
I definitely prefer these casts of characters:
Gogeta would be senseless without a Janemba to me. If Janemba was made, I'd buy him for sure, but that's only because he's one of my favorite characters, not because I think he fits in with the current assortment of characters produced (or prototyped). Gogeta was only in one movie for about 3 minutes and no episodes, so he definitely needs the only villain he ever fought. There also needs to be a good articulated figure made of him because all of the existing figures with articulation suck.
Hope that doesn't start an argument. Just wanted to share my opinion.

No I totally agree. Yamcha and Tien should definitely be next. Simply because I feel a precedent was set when they previewed Krillin. As far as the Buu saga we need a Buu first just to finish off the main series big boss villains. Then we can look at who would be next from the saga. The Buu saga also kinda made a mockery of turning super saiyan. Look how hard it was for Goku and Vegeta to ascend but here are these 2 little kids who are able to transform with ease.
