    Probably won’t have the powered down head. Really want a SS3 version of him but I’ll be getting this one anyways. Hope he looks better than the prototypes.

      I’m pretty excited about the release. I even liked the prototype version. What was your issue with it? Maybe I’m becoming less particular as I age. Haha.

        Oh don’t get me wrong, I’m excited lol. I just didn’t like the face of the prototypes. Just looked a bit off. A lot of folks hate that he’s out of scale, but that doesn’t bother me.

    Ohoho… Yess, yess… With Gotenks on the scene, it’s far too tempting… Surely, in order to recreate all of his best scenes, they’ll need to release a Super Buu, right? Hahaha! It’s just around the corner! For real this time!

    • MidEastNuke

      Super Buu and SSJ3 Gotenks! I think Fat Buu is the only fight this version of Gotenks had against?

    I pray to God that they don’t include that awful laughing face and offer something better in its place (I.E, a screaming face or a more gritted-teeth cocky face).

  • Bo Sin

    that looks horrible

    • SSJ_Bardock

      In the pictures, yes. Tamashii has a strange habit of posing prototypes in the strangest positions that make them look terrible. Hopefully, when official pics come out Gotenks will look better.

    Really hope he comes with a powered down head and ssj3 head. I’m willing to pay more for more accessories.
