I don't know if they're worth it or not, but they are roughly twice the price of a lot of your average blind box figures.
These ones are also articulated unlike most every other blind box figure that just mores its arms if your lucky. They also come with accessories (usually) I'm unsure if the DBZ line will but I have collected the TMNT and the Power Ranger lines of these. I will usually resort to buying on ebay as you can pay the retail price for the base 1/12 figures and know what your getting rather then pay retail and risk getting doubles or ones you dont want.
I've recently purchased an Irwin Kibito figure but the head lacks a little definition for my taste, it's not quite wrinkled enough, and I'm wondering if the WCF super-deformed Kibito with a big head that just came out might work with a head swap on the Irwin body. Does anyone have any experience in putting WCF heads on larger bodies in terms of scale? Thanks in advance! If no one has any idea, I'll take my figure to the store and ask the vendor if I can unbox one real quick and check myself! ;-)
Guys, I'm not sure who's all into this type of thing, but this is amazing!

Every now and then I see MGA stuff that I feel like ive never seen before. I really like the MGA electronic sword thats like a mix between Gohan/Trunks sword. What's the story behind MGA were they limited to certain regions in America or only carried by specific retailers? I remember seeing there stuff in my local Revco/CVS pharmacy in Indiana back around the turn of the Millennium.
I saw this online yesterday, I thought it was kinda funny. The back was completely blank so I didn't take a picture. Kinda interested in the Giru though...
Ok, that's bizarre. I haven't seen that assortment before. I think those came in those 50 cent gumball machines. I have the DB Bulma, Yamcha, and Oolong, as well as that kid Trunks. I've never seen the King Kai or the completely out of place Giru before. How weird.
MGA stuff was at Walmart, Toys R Us, etc. I am pretty sure. I never liked most of it.

Yeah, I see that dragonball pack with Mai, Bulma, Krillin, and the others all the time, I've never seen those one though but I have seen that giru in a collection before though and wondered were it came from. It looks like giru is running away from the Red Ranger lol

That's so weird I've never seen those with power rangers before. I got a set that came with kid Goku, Bulma, Yamcha, kid Krillin, Oolong, Pilaf, Shu, Mai, Master Roshi, King Kai and Ssj Vegeta. The Master Roshi and Ssj Vegeta can't even stand on their own and my set came with an extra Mai. I knew about them making GT figures because I've seen a Ssj4 Goku in one of those sets before. I don't think I've seen the Giru though.
Goku: "Look Vegeta. People popcorn!" Vegeta: "ahh what is he on?"
The Giru does look pretty nice. As a whole, these figures are incredibly low quality as far as paint is concerned. I had 3 Bulmas. All looked like crap with barely any paint on their faces. The paint was all chipped up. The Oolong is nice because he's HG scale.
