Full Color set... 1? It's a full set, I know that much.
AB Combat Sets... pretty sure this is every one they made
Rare AB Christmas set (packaged just like AB 2 inch figures, but they have ornament hooks!)
This picture is a collage I made years ago of pictures by Carnage6 that shows DeAgostini vs. Editions Atlas. He even has some of the 1996 vs. 200_? DeAgostini color variations!
And... for my Grand Finale... Every single Irwin 2 inch figure! I made these collages like 10 years ago.
They did 6 sets that came in BOXES instead of on cards with a blisterpack. I am fairly certain these 6 boxed versions came out before the carded versions. Set 5 is incredibly rare. Not only is it the only time Irwin released those figures, but it's also extremely rare AB figures too! The later, much better looking AB figures like these were much better sculpts than the early ones, and ironically, Irwin released almost exclusively the early AB figures! This was the one exception!
These are the 18 blister-on-card 2 inch figure sets. Pretty much none of these are what I'd call rare figures. AB made plenty of most if not all of these sets and Irwin did too. The only super rare, desirable Irwin set is the series 5 one above as far as I know.
I've never cared for the 1 inch figures, so I don't have anything like this for them.

Bran You Definitely Got Sum Great Stuff!! I'm pretty sure you knew someone would ask how did you get that goku on the nimbus cloud to float? Also I Luv That Trunks Bootleg! Where Did You Come Across It? And That Bootleg Gohan Is Very Nice
Most of these figures I no longer have. Some I miss, some I don't. I made the Goku look like he is floating by putting him on a stand from another figure and then poorly ( by my standards today) Photoshopped the stand out. I don't have the slightest idea how I got that SS Trunks bootleg. I know that I sold it for $45 around 2004 or 5 and I bet it would have sold for double that today. Probably more.
I'm not the photographer for these. They both came from Ebay years ago. All of these pics in ebay are pics I found years ago.
One is the full (blurry) set.
The other is pictures of the prototypes used on the back of the packaging. You'll notice they are 10 times cooler looking than the production figures!
While I was looking for those pictures, I also found these other pictures I didn't take that you might want to use. These pictures were all taken by random ebay sellers and similar like ten years ago, so... maybe it's okay to use them.
This is the way Editions Atlas figures look when they arrive. They definitely came in the mail to subscribers in France like a magazine subscription works in the US. I used to look at their website and try to read it despite not knowing French and I would check every so often to see which figure would be the next to come out.
This was the way the first DeAgostini figure was packaged in Germany.
These are packaged German DeAgostini figures.
This is the store display for the "Ramen" model kits. I don't know the actual translated name for them, but they aren't really called Ramen. Does Capsule x Nike know?
Here's the pic from ebay from when I got SS Trunks. To be honest, I don't even recall being the buyer of it. I think somebody sent me it so I could repaint the eyebrows on a legit SBC Trunks body and swap the hair for them. I am pretty sure that's what happened. I think THEY actually paid $45 for it, and I only had the figure temporarily because I asked if I could see it in person, box and all.
These are the Irwin medallions sold by themselves. I know loki owned some. They may have only been sold in Canada because I never saw them a single time in Walmart, Target, or Toys R Us in Texas.
This might be the full set of SBC. Don't know who created this. It's missing vol 00.
I was shocked to see this in my pic collection. I didn't know Kidz Biz in the UK rereleased this first set. I bet saiyen would be surprised to see this too.
Yeah, the one supersaiyansanchez sent me was unfortunately a bootleg, but it was hard to tell unless you own the other figures. I don't blame him at all. The plastic is harder, colors are a bit different, paint job a bit sloppier, and they even went so far as to put MADE IN CHINA on the bottom like the legit figures, but the font is smaller. I didn't know bootlegs existed!
I assumed that since the colors were a little different it was the Hong Kong release or maybe even Japanese release of the figure. I know the figures were released in Hong Kong in yellow packaging. I think in America they were sold in... blue packaging???
