A lot of hype was built pretty quickly upon the announcement and reveal of the Dragon Ball GT Ichiban Kuji figures, especially with how nice the prototype figures looked. However, a lot of trepidation was built in the collecting community when a few photos taken under precarious lighting started circulating the internet.
In short, there appeared to be some disparity between the colorization on the Oozaru Goku figure’s prototype and the final production version, which was photographed at a recent toy show. I’m personally of the opinion that the prototype looked better. That being said, I believe some of these photos of the final production version were taken under lighting conditions that were rather unflattering.
Regardless of the lighting situation, the differences between the prototype photos of Oozaru Goku and the final version are vast. The prototype features a much more rich paint job, appearing actually golden! It would appear the final production version is taking on a much more yellow tone.
You can judge for yourself, using the photo gallery below. The photos were taken using a few different cameras, with and without flash and under different lighting conditions.
These figures are dropping November, 2019!
